(Reuters) - A fugitive former police officer whose charred remains were found in a burned-out California mountain cabin following a standoff with police died from a possibly self-inflicted gunshot wound, a San Bernardino County Sheriff's spokesman said on Friday.
An autopsy determined that Christopher Dorner, 33, was killed by a single gunshot wound to the head, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Captain Kevin Lacy told a news conference.
Lacy said authorities had not yet determined who fired that single round. But, he said: "The information we have seems to indicate that the wound that took Christopher Dorner's life was self inflicted."
