Story just breaking now. Not much more to say as the story is still unfolding. I first heard this 10 minutes ago on patriot radio with the commentator
saying that the helicopters have been allowed back in and the police where pulling out. This sounds like either:
1. They got their man.
2. They bunt down an empty cabin and he is still at large.
3. The story came to its pre-planned end with of course all evidence destroyed in a convenient fire.
I'll let the ATS crowd chime in on these options, but as assault weapons were not mentioned and drones were, it seams like the next chapter of the
agenda has been opened.
I hope we gain more details on this comment " The warden got out of his vehicle and fired at the suspect ".
Who is the warden, what were the circumstances, how close was he when he ID'd the suspect and then began to shoot, how far was the cabin from the
location of the shooting?
Here is the timeline and updates from the YT OP:
Published on Feb 12, 2013
[Updated at 7:33 p.m. ET] More details on authorities' current assault on the cabin: Fire, as well as smoke from devices that the officers detonated,
have engulfed the structure, according to authorities familiar with the operation. Ammunition is exploding inside, the sources said.
[Updated at 7:30 p.m. ET] One of two sheriff's deputies shot Tuesday by a man suspected to be Dorner has died, San Bernardino County Sheriff John
McMahon told reporters at California's Loma Linda University Medical Center.
[Updated at 7:26 p.m. ET] The cabin appears to be on fire. Authorities began an assault on the structure minutes ago.
Authorities have penetrated the structure and were bringing equipment to tear openings into the cabin, a source familiar with the operation said.
[Updated at 7:22 p.m. ET] Black smoke is rising high in the air from the cabin area, video from CNN affiliate KABC shows. The video appeared to be
taken from a distance; authorities had asked news helicopters to keep well away.
[Updated at 7:20 p.m. ET] Authorities have launched tear gas at the cabin, and a tactical operation is under way, Former FBI Assistant Director Tom
Fuentes tells CNN.
[Updated at 7:18 p.m. ET] A California Department of Fish and Wildlife spokesman says he believes one of his agency's game wardens was the first law
enforcement official to confront the suspect in the stolen vehicle, and exchanged gunfire with him.
The game warden was on patrol and saw the vehicle approaching in the Big Bear area, the spokesman said. The warden got out of his vehicle and fired at
the suspect, the spokesman said. It's not clear from the spokesman's interview that the suspect left his vehicle at that point.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department says the suspect left the stolen vehicle Tuesday afternoon as authorities confronted him, ran into a
forest and eventually entered a cabin, where a shootout happened.
[Updated at 7:08 p.m. ET] A little more on the geography: The area where the suspect got out of the vehicle and fled into the San Bernardino National
Forest (and then into a cabin) is about 5 miles southwest, as the bird flies, of the spot where the vehicle was reported stolen near Big Bear Lake.
But the most direct route between the two locations is about 27-mile drive between the two locations, around Sugarloaf Mountain.
[Updated at 6:46 p.m. ET] One of the two law enforcement officers hurt in today's shootout has died, CNN affiliates and the Los Angeles Times have
reported. The Times cited law enforcement sources.
