Or so the AP news alert says. No further details, but it looks like they didn't need a drone after all to track down alleged cop-killer Christopher Dorner.
Christopher Dorner was engaged in a shootout with federal authorities in the Big Bear area Tuesday, a law enforcement source told The Times.
The shooting occurred after Dorner burglarized a home, tied up a couple and stole their car, the source said.
It was not immediately clear whether Dorner was in custody.
UPDATE, UPDATE: Twitter (from an LA Times list) says that at least two officers are reported down, and that Dorner may be fleeing in a 2008 Dodge pickup.
UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE: The latest from the LA Times:
