Rick Heltebrake tells Anderson Cooper what happened when fugitive Christopher Dorner took his car at gunpoint on Tuesday.
Heltebrake first noticed a man in the trees with a gun before he realized it was Dorner. "I saw a vehicle crashed in the snow behind him, and he came up to the window of my truck, my driver window, with his gun pointed at me and he said, 'I don't want to hurt you. Just get out, start walking and take your dog," he recounts.
It was apparent to Heltebrake that he was not Dorner's intended target. The wanted former LAPD officer just needed the car. "He looked calm...business like almost."
After a few seconds, Heltebrake says he heard the gunfire exchanged between Dorner and law enforcement. He called the Sheriff's deputy and reported what happened before continuing on to remove himself from the area.

"It's indescribable, the sort of emotional roller coaster I've been through the past few days and trying to come to terms with everything that's going on," Usera says about allegations against Dorner and the possibility that the former LAPD officer died in a cabin fire during a standoff with police.
"Chris was a guy who was approachable, had a great sense of humor, fun to be around, intelligent, good conversationalist," says Usera. "The kind of guy most people would want to hang out with and spend time with."
