TMZ is reporting that fugitive Christopher Dorner is currently cornered in a cabin and engaged in a firefight with police in Big Bear, California.
ABC is broadcasting a live feed of the manhunt, during which two officers were shot.
A source directly connected with the case is quoted as telling TMZ, "We have him cornered."
The former LAPD officer was discovered after a Big Bear couple were victims of a home invasion and robbery, with Dorner fleeing in a white Dodge truck upon which a State Fish and Game ranger fired his gun.
The L.A. Times reports Dorner tied the couple up and held them hostage for days until he left the cabin on Tuesday.
A $1 million reward was offered after Dorner shot and killed three people, including two police offers. The killing spree began after Dorner lost his job with the LAPD — releasing a manifesto on Facebook addressed to "America" in which he named his targets and gave a detailed explanation of his motivation for the killing spree.
"When the truth comes out, the killing stops," said Dorner in his manifesto.
