LOS ANGELES — Residents of Big Bear, Calif. were evacuated Thursday as police continued to hunt for suspected murderer Christopher Dorner, a former LAPD police officer and Navy reservist.
Dorner, who allegedly shot three police officers (one fatally) Thursday morning, is suspected to be in the mountain community because his truck was found torched on the side of a road.
Big Bear, about 80 miles from Los Angeles, is a popular ski resort area. When police confirmed that the truck belonged to Dorner, resorts shut down, guests were told to stay in their rooms and Big Bear Unified School District campuses went on lockdown, reports NBC LA.
