    Audio of the 911 call a Big Bear couple placed Feb. 12 after being tied up by disgruntled ex-LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner was released Tuesday, KPCC reported.

    In the partially redacted recording, Karen Reynolds tells a police dispatcher that she and her husband found Dorner inside a condo on their property and tied her up.

    "I'm pretty sure he's been here the whole time," said Reynolds, who managed to use her cellphone while tied up to call 911.

    Reynolds said Dorner was armed with a rifle that had a silencer and took off in her truck. She also tells the dispatcher Dorner was armed with an automatic rifle equipped with a silencer.

    Dorner was an ex-LAPD police officer and former United States Navy reservist who was charged in connection with a series of shooting attacks on police officers and their families from between February 3 and 12.

    Four people were killed in the shootings, including two police officers and three police officers were wounded.

    Dorner was the subject of one of the largest manhunts in LAPD history that spanned two states and Mexico before he shot himself while holed up in an unoccupied cabin in Big Bear during a standoff with police.
