Police are search for a man after a high speed chase ended when the suspect ditched his car in downtown St. Louis.

The chase started in Illinois when officers tried to stop a speeder. KMOV reports police had to stop the pursuit because it was too dangerous. Officers in another area spotted the speeder though and the chase started again. Police followed the man to a parking garage at 13th Street and St. Charles. That is when the suspect bailed from the car. Police are now searching the area for the man.

The suspect is described as a white man, five-and-a-half feet tall and weighing about 155 pounds. He was seen wearing a dark hooded sweater and light grey or blue pants.

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) - A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press a charred body has been found in the burned cabin where a fugitive ex-cop is believed to have been in a standoff with sheriff's deputies.

The official speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing says the body was found at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday

Authorities said earlier they believed the man in the cabin was Christopher Dorner. He has been on the run since they say he launched a campaign to exact revenge against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing.

Officials will be looking for identifying marks such as tattoos before confirming the identity.

Police say Dorner killed four people, including a deputy on Tuesday.

IRVINE, Calif. (AP) - Police evacuated a Los Angeles home improvement store Sunday after a caller said they had seen someone resembling a fugitive ex-police officer suspected of three killings.

Los Angeles police spokesman Gus Villanueva says the caller reported a sighting of 33 year old Christopher Dorner. Police were sent to the Northridge area but Villanueva later said a search of the Lowe's Home Improvement store yielded no evidence that Dorner was there or had been there.

News helicopters earlier showed police helping customers and employees leave the store. A command post was established nearby.

The search since Thursday evening had focused on mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles where Dorner's burned truck was found. But authorities have found no recent signs of Dorner.

LA officials announced a $1 million reward earlier Sunday for information leading to Dorner's arrest.
