The situation out of Southern California has law enforcement across California on edge. And when a back window of a car pulled over by a Glenn County deputy suddenly shattered Sunday night, deputies say they thought they were being fired on. According to Orland police, a deputy pulled a small compact car with Oregon plates over on 6th Street in Orland. The deputy got the information of the driver, then went back to his patrol car to run the plates. Suddenly, a back window of the compact shattered. The deputy immediately took cover. A helicopter was called, and authorities began searching a nearby neighborhood, though they weren't sure who they were looking for.
The driver of the compact was just as perplexed, according to investigators. It's not clear if a bullet or a rock will be found as the investigation unfolds, but officers responded wtih a heightened level of security, due to the statewide search for Christopher Dorner. Dorner is wanted for three murders out of Southern California. Los Angeles police say he is targeting officers who he thinks betrayed him and got him fired from the LAPD.
