Fate of fugitive ex-cop unknown

Posted: Updated:
BIG BEAR, CA (CBS46) -

Hours after law enforcement official sources reported a body had been found in the burned cabin where a fugitive ex-cop was believed to have been barricaded, Los Angeles police officials said they are still uncertain about Christopher Dorner's fate.

A man believed to be Dorner got in a shootout with police and then barricaded himself in the cabin. One deputy was killed in that shootout. Another was injured.

A few hours later, that cabin caught fire and burned down. Tuesday night, police said the house was still too hot to enter. Firefighters were not able to go into the house to look for a body.

Dorner has been on the run since Wednesday. He's accused of killing three people in an effort to get revenge against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing.
