This information is from the San Bernardino county sheriff's office so let me for -- put a copy it on at that this is very early very preliminary information.
Com today at about 12:22 PM San Bernardino sheriffs were in the hunt for Christopher garner up in the big bear area.
They received a call -- stolen vehicle and at 12100 block of club do you drive.
They responded there they receive information from the person reporting that the stolen vehicle was stolen by many individual that appeared to be very similar to Christopher.
-- They need -- immediately conducted a ground in an air search for this vehicle and -- were able to located at highway 38 and the last road.
-- the suspect in the vehicle fled into divorce.
Shortly thereafter this individual barricaded themselves in one of the cabins there any exchange of gunfire heard.
During that exchange of gunfire two officers were injured they've been airlifted to local hospital right now their condition is unknown.
Los Angeles police department has that -- resource is out to the San Bernardino County airport our resources are waiting there.
For authorization from the San Bernardino county sheriffs to assist them so this is a San Bernardino county sheriff's investigation this is their -- They have the -- command out there we are there to support them only if fast.
That is as much as I have -- -- particular reason out there.
A quick update on how this surge is going from the that.
Right now we have 1045.
Clues that are officers are working on they're following up on all those clues obviously some of them are panning out -- see some of them are dead ends what we're continuing to do this surge -- continue to work -- clues.
Well the events up in the San Bernardino Mountains unfold.
I'll take a couple quick questions but again my information is very very -- What we're not positive and until we get this guy custody Antilles in handcuffs in any jail we're not -- -- know for sure.
-- said he was similar to parents.
He was up in that area one time so alive you know -- likelihood is is that exam but we can't say for sure.
Your front door and he knows the -- -- -- -- come -- hostage.
I can't confirm the hostage part I've heard that -- new media resources we were listening to this -- getting much of our information from Sanford in a county sheriff's.
I can't confirm that anybody was held hostage at this time that's part of December video side of the investigation that has not been confirmed yet but when.
I can't give -- -- specifics about what resource we have up there we believe this individual may be watching TV or may have some access to media so I don't want to tip -- -- is what we're sending out there.
To that and we've also western media that -- air ships in the area.
Do not have your -- -- showing you live broadcasting close ups of what our swat officer with the -- -- -- swat officers are doing up in that area.
The reason for that is obviously -- put our officers at an extreme tactical disadvantage if this suspect knows what -- what are what are folks are doing what I'm.
-- I don't know what big involvement of the California fishing game was at this time my understanding it's San birdie -- county sheriff's that's from their press office.
But I don't have an update from the California fish and game I don't know what their involvement is at this time.
Well everyone is very hopeful that this thing ends without any further bloodshed we hope we can take this guy to custody.
And we hope that he doesn't hurt anybody else we hope none of these officers was seriously injured which we don't know at this point.
Com the best thing for him now would be to surrender and allows it taken into custody and and he -- facing criminal justice system -- is -- there's there's a tremendous sense of apprehension among our officers here.
Concern about the officers that are out there until this guy's in handcuffs and -- in custody none -- noted that people -- department -- -- OK.
I can't give this specific -- resource is -- We -- guys sends a resource is they're waiting at the airport in San Bernardino now we're waiting to be called inviting you seem to matter if we're needed right now we haven't they needed and by the way that people have been asking it to chief of police his -- out there chief Beck has not responded out there he's still here.
I don't have information about the vehicle that this suspects.
Allegedly took I've seen some videotape from the from the media members on that vehicle I don't have information about what that vehicle what is -- What.
If he's watching this a message for himself there isn't enough is enough it's time to turn yourself -- it's time to stop the bloodshed it's time to.
To let this event and let this -- it'd be over.
Do you her priority is -- crime the well obvious effort priorities the safety of the community around here so I'm sure this averting a sheriff's.
Are evacuating people in that area in making sure that all the citizens their safe and that area is locked down what's that -- is locked down and all the citizens in that area say.
Then we'll let -- -- it was -- team going there and do what they do best which is to get this guy hopefully.
In -- -- hopefully without any further bloodshed.
One more question and a -- Did OK.
A couple things on that I'm standing -- county sheriff's car in RJ -- so they are embedded with the team of officers.
That are all working together to solve this thing and they've been there since since the beginning we also sent one of our sister she's out there December heating up he's in their command post so -- any real time updates from the end to our command so we know what's going on up there.
Very good exchange of information so we work really well with our our law enforcement partners throughout Southern California good.
