Sheriff: Ex-cop Dorner died from gunshot to head

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Fugitive former police officer Christopher Dorner killed himself as the cabin he was barricaded inside caught fire following a shootout with officers, police revealed Friday while also confirming he spent most of his time on the run in a condominium just steps away from the command center set up to find him.

‘‘The information that we have right now seems to indicate that the wound that took Christopher Dorner’s life was self-inflicted,’’ sheriff’s Captain Kevin Lacy told reporters.
