A body believed to be that of renegade former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Jordan Dorner was found Tuesday evening in a burning cabin near Big Bear Lake, California, according to a CNN report.
Law enforcement sources said they were told by officials at the Los Angeles Police Department that it is Dorner's body. However, forensic tests will be needed to determine the body's identity.
The fire began after a SWAT team stormed a cabin near Big Bear Lake where a suspect -- who authorities said matched Dorner's description -- had holed up after a fatal shootout with San Bernadino County sheriff's deputies, a source familiar with the operation told CNN.
The cabin caught fire after police detonated smoke devices inside the cabin, the source said.
