Police officers in the Big Bear, California area (about 300 miles by road from Fresno) say they have exchanged gunfire with a man believed to be fugitive LA police officer Chris Dorner.  Police say a man thought to be Dorner robbed a couple in the Big Bear area, stole their car, and then got into a shootout with police.

Dorner is wanted for three murders, including one police officer, and for shooting two other policemen, along with other charges.  Dorner left a message that threatens several people because he was fired from the LA Police Department.  Some 50 LA police officers and their families are currently under police protection due to the threat.

Police say they are searching the Big Bear area and say Dorner might be cornered there.  Dorner has had survival training and police do not know how many weapons or how much ammunition he has with him.

One police source says Dorner is "pinned down" by a massive police presence.  

We will update this story when more information is available.
