Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles police officer suspected of three murders, had been the subject of a massive manhunt in recent days that led law enforcement to the area surrounding Big Bear Lake. A high-ranking San Bernardino County sheriff's official said Dorner had held four people hostage, possibly for days, at a home in the 1200 block of Club View Drive before fleeing the residence Tuesday in a stolen maroon Nissan Rogue.

The wildlife officer turned his vehicle around and put out a radio call reporting the pursuit. When the suspect realized he had been identified, he turned the vehicle down a side road and eluded wildlife officials. Additional wardens responded to look for the suspect. Moments later, a warden noticed a white truck coming down the road - being driven erratically at a high speed.
