Authorities say the former Los Angeles police officer wanted for killing three people is holed up in a cabin miles from where his truck was found.
A sheriff's official says Christopher Dorner stole a vehicle Tuesday near Big Bear Lake, abandoned it after a chase, ran into the forest and barricaded himself in the cabin. He got into a gunfight with officers, two of whom were injured.
As the crow flies, it's about five miles from where Dorner's pickup was found Thursday, though a ridge with peaks topping 8,000 feet lies between the locations. By road, the areas are about 30 miles apart.
The manhunt for Dorner began Wednesday. In an online post, he targeted dozens of people he feels are responsible for his firing from the LAPD in 2008.
