After Dorner
LOS ANGELES (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - California police say they now know how former Los Angeles cop Christopher Dorner died.

Tuesday's standoff ended a week-long manhunt for Dorner, who was believed to be behind a string of shootings.

The end came at a cabin in Big Bear Lake, where Dorner exchanged gunfire with law enforcement, before the cabin burst into flames.

Police say a single gunshot was heard as the cabin began to burn, indicating that Dorner took his own life.

Now, the controversy concerns whether or not the fire was intentionally set by law enforcement to try to coax Dorner out.

Police are denying that the fire was intentional.

The San Bernadino Sheriff says they are investigating who made remarks on radio calls, and that the matter will be dealt with appropriately.
