“The extraordinary manhunt for the former Los Angeles police officer suspected of three murders converged Tuesday on a mountain cabin where he was believed to have barricaded himself inside, engaged in a shootout that killed a deputy and then never emerged as the home went up in flames,” boston.com reports. CBS confirms that cop killer Christopher Dorner died in the conflagration. “The man believed to be Dorner never came out of the cabin, and a single shot was heard inside before the cabin was engulfed in flames,” a law enforcement official told The Associated Press.
