probably a preemptive mistake by the media trying to get the details before rival news outlets.

Default Autopsy results in.

Quote:
Christopher Dorner, the former LAPD police officer who carried out a vengeful rampage against his fellow ex-cops and others, died of a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head at the end of an intense firefight with police in rural Big Bear, Calif., authorities said Friday.
At a late-afternoon news conference, San Bernardino County authorities said that the cause of death was determined by an autopsy conducted Thursday by the county Coronerís Office.
Authorities had been unsure whether Dorner killed himself, had been struck by a deputy's bullet or had died in a fire that engulfed the cabin during the shootout. The coroner's finding still must be finalized.

Sheriff John McMahon also detailed the extent of the arsenal that Dorner had with him in his final days, which he spent eluding searchers in the mountainous area east of Los Angeles. Among the items recovered from the cabin where Dorner died and other locations and vehicles were numerous assault weapons; semiautomatic handguns; a .308-caliber, bolt-action sniper rifle; high-capacity ammunition magazines; a total of 10 suppressors or silencers; tear gas and smoke canisters; a military-style load-bearing vest; and a military-style Kevlar helmet, he said.
The sheriff also confirmed that Dorner spent most of his time on the run hiding in a condominium just steps away from the command center set up to find him. He said deputies had visited the unit, which was locked, on the evening of Feb. 7, but received no answer when they knocked on the door and then moved on.

All you gotta do to hide from the police is simply not answer your door!

They believe he shot himself, probably with a pistol. Basically when it got to the point where he had leave the cabin, he chose not to give himself up, but to end it himself. Coroner's report won't be official for a few days, though

Quote:
Fugitive Christopher Dorner spent his final hours barricaded inside a mountain cabin armed with a high-powered sniper rifle, smoke bombs and a cache of ammo, shooting to kill and ignoring commands to surrender until a single gunshot ended his life, authorities said Friday.

The evidence indicates that Dorner, a fired Los Angeles police officer suspected of killing four people and wounding three others, held a gun to his head and fired while the Big Bear area cabin he was holed up in caught fire, ignited by police tear gas.
.....

After about a quarter of the cabin was engulfed in flames, Herbert said, "we heard a distinct single gunshot" come from inside. The shot sounded different from those Dorner had fired at deputies, indicating a different type of weapon was used, he said.

Dental records were used to confirm that the remains found in the cabin were indeed those of Dorner, 33.

The Riverside County coroner's office conducted an autopsy on Dorner, and determined that his death was caused by a single gunshot to the head. The coroner has not positively determined that Dorner shot himself, but the evidence "seems to indicate that the wound … was self inflicted," said Capt. Kevin Lacy of the San Bernardino County coroner's division.

Dorner didn't break into the place, it was unlocked. Considering that Big Bear is a vacation area filled with empty cabins during the week, it probably was a good thing cops weren't smashing into houses all over the place

Quote:
He said that deputies were under orders not to kick down the doors of homes that were locked up and unresponsive to deputies. They looked for signs of forced entry or other signs that something was amiss at unit 203, but they found nothing. The door to that unit was locked, and since there were no signs of distress, they moved on to other units. The Reynolds explained they had actually left the door unlocked for a maintenance person, which is how Dorner obtained access to the cabin in the first place.

So I'm wondering if Dorner had a gas mask at the cabin with all those smoke grenades and with the first round of tear gas not having any effect.

They mentioned he had his own tear gas and that they found a gas mask in his car, but didn't say anything about him having one at the cabin.
