SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — In the harrowing first minutes of the police shootout with suspected killer Christopher Dorner on Feb. 12 near Big Bear, officers scrambled to help two wounded officers who were ambushed outside a mountain cabin.
“We need an airship! We have an officer down! Officer down!’’ one of the first responders shouted into his police radio.
“Copy. Officer down. Officer down,’’ a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s dispatcher responded, her stress palpable.
