Connor Simpson

There's been a new sighting of fugitive ex-cop Chris Dorner along California's highway 38 in Big Bear, California. The Los Angeles Times reports a couple was tied up in their home and had their white pickup truck stolen around 12:20 p.m. local time on Tuesday by a suspect resembling Chris Dorner. The Times and AP have also reported Dorner engaged in a shootout with fish and game officials earlier today. A stretch of the highway is now closed while authorities continue searching for Dorner. According to KCLA the sighting happened 10 to 15 miles from where Dorner's trcuk was found torched last week. According to KTLA, there are two officers down after the fire fight with Dorner.
