Police: Christopher Dorner shoot-out 'like a war zone'


Police in California say they have found charred remains in the rubble of a burnt-out cabin where a murder suspect was believed to be hiding.

The fire appears to have ended a six-day manhunt for Christopher Dorner, a former Los Angeles policeman who had barricaded himself in and exchanged gunfire with police.

Speaking at a news conference, San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said the scene was "like a war zone". And he said police did not "intentionally" set fire to the cabin.

Forensic tests will be conducted to determine whether the charred remains are those of Christopher Dorner.
