SEVEN OAKS (CBSLA.com) — A body believed to be to that of quadruple-murder suspect Christopher Dorner has been recovered from a burned out cabin where he was holed up during a deadly shootout with authorities earlier today.
Dorner, who allegedly shot and killed his fourth victim — a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputy — was barricaded inside a Seven Oaks residence for several hours Tuesday afternoon. He is also accused of shooting a second deputy, who was undergoing surgery after being airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center.
The home, ironically, is located near the Sheriff’s outpost that was set up earlier this week as part of the search for him.
CBS2′s Carter Evans reported that tear gas was fired into the house before the fire broke out. A single shot was also heard at that time, according to CBS2′s Juan Fernandez.
During a news conference earlier in the day, LAPD Cmdr. Andy Smith urged Dorner to surrender.
“Enough is enough. It’s time to turn yourself in. End the bloodshed,” said Smith, who added that Dorner likely had access to television and other media outlets. He requested that media helicopters pull out of the area, and the San Bernardino District Attorney’s Office also asked that reporters in the area to refrain from tweeting during the standoff.
