A burned out mountain cabin near Los Angeles has been surrounded by police following a shoot out as they wait to see if the body of an ex-policeman suspected of a killing spree is inside.
Two police officers were earlier shot, one has since died of his injuries.
Christopher Dorner has been the subject of a six-day man hunt following the murders of three people. It is alleged he killed them in revenge for being sacked.
Around 200 officers laid siege to the cabin after a man answering Dorner’s description ran inside. A witness said after shots were fired the cabin went up in flames.
