San Bernardino County Sheriff's confirm that a truck used by triple-homicide suspect Christopher Dorner has been found in a wooded area near Big Bear.
All schools and facilities in the Bear Valley Unified School District have been placed on lockdown. Assistant Superintendent Walter Con said in an online message that district officials do not believe there is any immediate danger, but the lockdown is being done as a precaution.

Additionally, Bear Mountain resort has been closed for the rest of the day due to the police activity.
"We are in constant contact with federal and local authorities regarding this situation," said Chris Riddle, vice president of marketing at Big Bear Mountain Resorts. "We felt it was in the best interest of the search to close Bear Mountain for the rest of the day."
TV news helicopters have shown a helicopter drop a rifle-equipped team onto a mountain near Big Bear Thursday afternoon, the Associated Press reported.
The search for Dorner has also been extended to Nevada, as Las Vegas police, the Nevada Highway Patrol, FBI and U.S. marshals are searching for him and his vehicle on Interstate 15 and other southern Nevada roads, according to the AP.
