CBS Los Angeles is reporting that a woman believed to be Nancy Dorner, the mother of Chris Dorner, was spotted in an LA restaurant while watching the shootout that appears to have led to the death of her son.

CBS 2 reporter Michelle Gile reported that a woman matching Nancy Dorner's description was drinking wine and eating chips with a female friend. The restaurant in question is La Capilla Mexican Restaurant in La Palma, California.

Gile says she spoke to Dorner's mother without realizing she was the mother of the fugitive. When Gile mentioned that Dorner's mom lived nearby, Nancy Dorner played dumb and said she didn't even know Christopher Dorner.

Gile then reports that she:

...went to Dorner’s home in La Palma. About 10 minutes after she arrived there, she saw the woman from the restaurant, who neighbors identified as Dorner’s mother, pull into the driveway and go in the house...

The media have camped outside the home of Nancy Dorner awaiting some sort of statement.
