LOS ANGELES — 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.

State Fish and Wildlife Assistant Chief Dan Sforza tells KCAL-TV that two officers were wounded in the shootout. It’s not clear which agency they belong to.

Sforza says game wardens spotted Christopher Dorner in a vehicle on Highway 38 and attempted to pull him over.

Gunfire was exchanged. Dorner bailed out of the vehicle and ran into the woods.
