UPDATE- The rural cabin former L.A. Cop Christopher Dorner is holed up in, has gone up in flames. FOX News is reporting the fugitive is believed to be dead. Hours earlier Dorner killed one San Bernadino Sheriff's Deputy and injured another before barricading himself in the cabin.
BIG BEAR, CA/ABC News/Staff -- Two Sheriff's Deputies have reportedly been shot after engaging in a shootout with fugitive and former L.A. Cop Christopher Dorner. KABC Los Angeles is reporting their injuries are serious enough to require them be airlifted from the scene.
The initial shootout was with State Game Wardens who spotted Dorner initially spotted in his vehicle. They were unhurt. Sheriff's Deputies quickly converged on the scene.
Police confirmed that a suspect resembling Dorner had been spotted near Big Bear, Calif., a mountainous region east of Los Angeles, where Dorner's burning vehicle was discovered last week.
Dorner was allegedly involved in a home invastion this afternoon, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. Police have surrounded a cabin in the area, but it is unknown if Dorner is inside.
"The couple were tied up in their house, and the suspect fled in their 2008 white Dodge pickup truck," the sheriff's department said.
Dorner faces capital murder charges that involve the killing of Riverside police officer Michael Crain, who was gunned down in an ambush last Thursday. A capital murder charge could result in the death penalty if convicted. Crain was married with two children, aged 10 and 4.
The charges do not involve the slayings of Monica Quan and her fianc, who were found shot to death Feb. 3. Quan was the daughter of former LAPD captain Randal Quan, who was mentioned as a target of Dorner's fury in his manifesto.
Dorner released the 6,000 word so-called "manifesto" on his Facebook page which outlined his anger at the Los Angeles Police Department for firing him, and made threats against individuals he believed were responsible for ending his career with the police force five years ago. The LAPD has assigned 50 protection details to guard officers and their families who were deemed possible targets.
