(CBS/AP) - Two deputies have been shot in a gun battle with fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner in the mountainous Big Bear area of Southern California on Tuesday, reports CBS Los Angeles.
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.
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.
