Fatigue-clad officers scoured the mountainous terrain near Big Bear after a burning pickup truck was found that may belong to a fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer wanted in connection with a series of shootings that have left three people dead and two wounded.
The mountain community locked down schools and closed the nearby Bear Mountain Resort as television helicopters hovered overhead, showing footage of a SWAT team walking through the woods, rifles drawn.
A law enforcement source told The Times that the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department had deployed a team to the site of the truck as a precaution. Investigators were searching for a vehicle identification number on the charred truck to see if it belonged to the suspect, Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33.
