A fugitive former policeman whose charred remains were found in a burned-out cabin in the mountains above Los Angeles following a shootout with sheriff's deputies died from a possibly self-inflicted gunshot wound, officials said on Friday.

An autopsy on Christopher Dorner, 33, found he was killed by a single shot to the head, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Captain Kevin Lacy told a news conference. Authorities have not yet determined who fired that fatal round.

"The information we have seems to indicate that the wound that took Christopher Dorner's life was self inflicted," Lacy said.
