A string of events that ended with the death of the man believed to be a wanted ex-Los Angeles police officer started when he encountered a mother and daughter pair of housekeepers at a cabin in the mountains east of Los Angeles.

Family member Jay Hylton told KABC-TV the pair wasn't hurt. The Los Angeles Times reported the women surprised Dorner Tuesday, he tied them up and then fled in a purple Nissan.

The Times reported that one maid eventually broke free and called 911.

About a half hour later, the suspect got into gunfights with authorities, one of whom was killed, after barricading himself in a cabin where a charred body was found, along with Dorner's driver's license.

LAPD says its operations are back to normal.
