This undated photo released by the Los Angeles Police Department shows suspect Christopher Dorner.

A former Los Angeles police officer accused of three murders has been surrounded by police inside a mountain cabin after shooting deputies during a fierce gunfight, reports say.

On Tuesday evening, Christopher Dorner exchanged fire with police in the US state of California’s Big Bear Lake area, injuring two officers.

One of the injured later succumbed to his injuries in a hospital.

US television news networks showed dozens of SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) officers surrounding a cabin in a rural area outside Big Bear Lake, a ski resort about 130 kilometers (80 miles) northeast of Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) fugitive was firing at police and using smoke grenades. He has sworn not to be taken alive.

“Everyone is very hopeful that this thing ends without any more bloodshed… The best thing for him now would be to surrender,” LAPD Commander Andrew Smith said at a press conference in Los Angeles.

“There is a tremendous sense of apprehension about our officers here,” Smith added.

The disgruntled former officer has been on the run since last week, after allegedly killing three people including one police officer in southern California.

He had declared war on police officers he blamed for his sacking in 2008.

    Dorner’s execution by fire was an exercise done many time before – Symbionese Liberation Army, Oakland, California; David Koresh, Waco, Texas; etc.

    While telling the public that the fire “was not intentionally set”, the police transmitted orders to “Send in the burners”, and “Burn that MF Down”, creating a cognitive dissonance in the American mind.

    It’s no secret that burning people alive is a military tactic as old as war itself. Perhaps the LAPD might be better off telling the truth about it?
