LOS ANGELES (AP) - Two law officers have reportedly been wounded in a gunfight in the mountains east of Los Angeles with a person believed to be a former Los Angeles police officer.

A California Fish and Wildlife official told KCAL-TV the officers were injured.

It's not clear if Christopher Dorner is in custody.

The manhunt for Dorner began last Wednesday when he was named the suspect in the Orange County murders of a former Los Angeles police captain's daughter and her fiance the previous weekend.

Hours after police announced they were looking for him, Dorner first fired at two LAPD officers, then ambushed the Riverside officers.

A $1 million reward is out for information on Dorner

As of 3:30 Tuesday, all that's known is that a game ranger opened fire on somebody. That sort of hysteria has been going on for days all around Los Angeles, and a lot of innocent people are getting shot up.
