"CBS News has learned from a law enforcement source that a body recovered from a burned cabin in Big Bear, California, is believed to be that of Christopher Dorner, the fired former LAPD officer who was suspected of earlier killing four people, and was the subject of an intense manhunt.
The cabin in which Dorner was believed to be earlier holed up in San Bernardino County, east of L.A, had been in flames, CBS Station KCAL Los Angeles reported. It followed after an earlier shootout Tuesday afternoon that left one deputy killed and another wounded.
A law enforcement official, who wished to remain anonymous because the investigation is ongoing, had told The Associated Press that the person believed to be the suspect never came out of the burning cabin.
CBS News correspondent Carter Evans, reported that tear gas was fired into the house, which was surrounded by authorities, before the fire broke out."
