    Body found in cabin
    There are numerous reports that a body has been found in the cabin where a man believed to be fugitive Christopher Dorner was holed up.

    The Associated Press reported that the body was "charred". A fire at the cabin was left to burn by officials for over two hours this evening.

    It is likely to be some time before the body is officially identified but authorities had said earlier that they believed the man in the cabin was Dorner.

    The Los Angeles police department has scheduled a news conference for midnight ET.

    The police chief of Riverside county, Sergio Diaz, whose officers were involved in the search, has confirmed that the body found inside the cabin was that of the fugitive former police officer Christopher Dorner, according to the Press-Enterprise of Riverside. A statement from the San Bernardino county sheriff's department is expected soon.

    Update: body not yet found
    A press conference is under way in Los Angeles. LAPD police commander Andrew Smith corrects an earlier report from the Riverside County police chief that a body had been found and identified in the cabin. He says no body has been found, and indeed the fire in the cabin is so hot that officers have not been able to enter the cabin.

    We're wrapping up our live blog coverage of this story now, with the news that Christopher Dorner is believed to have died in the cabin where he was holed up. Fire broke out after a shooutout with police. Authorities have been unable to confirm Dorner's death, however, as the wreckage of the cabin was too hot to enter. The LAPD said that if Dorner was indeed in the cabin when it was engulfed with flames, it may take days, or even weeks, to establish his identity for certain.
