One of the television reporters covering Tuesday’s dramatic developments in the manhunt for alleged cop killer Christopher Dorner was caught in the crossfire of a shootout between Dorner and police, EW.com’s Inside TV reports.
Carter Evans was reporting live for CBS owned-and-operated station KCBS-TV from the Big Bear area in Southern California when gunfire could be heard. The police were heard yelling to the reporter, "Get the f— out," the story says. Evans said during a televised report that he wasn’t sure where to go.
Dorner, a former Los Angeles police officer thought to be responsible for the killings of four people, including two police officers, is believed to have died Tuesday in a mountain cabin that burned down near Big Bear. Authorities have yet to confirm his death.
Evans, who was previously with CNN, was unharmed in the gunfight, and called in a couple of hours later to say he was about 100 yards away from the cabin where Dorner was hiding, according to CBSNews.com.
