VIDEO: CBS’ Carter Evans Caught in the Crossfire of Christopher Dorner Shootout

CBS News correspondent Carter Evans found himself in the middle of a shootout between San Bernardino Country, CA authorities and murder suspect Christopher Dorner, who has led police on a widely-publicized manhunt over the past four days, Tuesday afternoon (video above).

Evans was reporting via phone from Big Bear on KCBS when the shots exploded behind him. “I hear gunfire from several directions. The area that the helicopter seems to be circling is an area about 100 feet ahead of me, just directly ahead of me,” Evans said. “That seems to be the area that everyone is focused on.”

Evans remained remarkably calm while the events unfolded in front of him, occasionally staying silent for long chunks of time so viewers could hear the gunfire. At one point, someone can be heard yelling at Carter to “get the f-ck out.”

KCBS-KCAL reports Evans is safe. More video of his reporting from Big Bear after the jump.
