LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is thanking San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies for their bravery after a man believed to be fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner barricaded himself inside a cabin.
A law enforcement official told The Associated Press Dorner never came out of the California mountain cabin, and a single shot was heard inside before the cabin was engulfed in flames.
The law enforcement official requested anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.
Villaraigosa says his thoughts and prayers were with the San Bernardino deputy shot and killed.
He says over recent days he had called members of the LAPD and their families who were believed to be potential targets of Dorner.
