The conditions of the wounded deputies is unknown.

Dorner, 33, is accused of killing three people as part of a revenge-driven rampage against the Los Angeles Police Department. A $1 million reward has been offered in the case. Dorner has been on the run since Sunday, Feb. 3 when he allegedly killed the daughter of a retired LAPD captain and her fiance.

Part of the Tuesday gun fight could be heard live on CBS Los Angeles.

A law enforcement official says it's believed that Dorner committed a burglary of a cabin in the San Bernardino Mountains, and had a couple tied up there. One was able to get away and make a call. Police responded and gave chase when the man believed to be Dorner fled in a stolen car.

CBS Los Angeles reports that law enforcement officers attempted to stop Dorner's car, but Dorner did not stop and began shooting.
