    FRESNO, Calif. - A suspect in an arson opened fire Thursday on deputies and a fire investigator trying to serve an arrest warrant, authorities said. Three law-enforcement officers were shot.

    The victims were taken to a local hospital. Two officers — a Fresno County sheriff's deputy shot in the side under his armpit and a Reedley police officer wounded in the head — were in critical condition, The Fresno Bee reported.

    A third officer, a sheriff's deputy, was shot in the shoulder. His condition was not known, the Bee reported.

    A witness, Bret McArron, told KSEE-TV the shooting occurred at a house in an impoverished neighborhood with a lot of mobile homes in the community of Minkler in eastern Fresno County.

    The gunman barricaded himself inside the house and fire repeatedly on law enforcement officials, sheriff's spokesman Chris Curtice said.

    Jim Stone, 46, who lives about 100 feet from the surrounded home, said he was evacuated after the shooting erupted. Stone said he heard what sounded like hundreds of shots.

    Update: One of the Fresno County Deputies has passed away :fallenofficer:

    http://abclocal.go.com/kfsn/story?section=news/local&id=7294923


    FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims held a press conference near the scene where of 3 law enforcement officers were fired on around 9:40 Thursday morning. She confirmed that a Fresno County Homicide Detective died from wounds suffered in that shootout with someone inside the arson suspect's home. That suspect may still be alive.

    Of the two officers who were wounded, one is in critical. He is from the Reedley Police Department. She explained that both are recovering at Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno. Their families are with them.

    Mims thanked all the law enforcement agencies who continue to give her department assistance, as many as two hundred remain at the scene.
    And she asked the public for their prayers of support.

    Authorities say a California homicide detective is dead and a police officer is in critical condition after they were shot during an unspecified investigation in a rural area of Central California.

    Sheriff's officials say they were shot Thursday by a man who then barricaded himself inside a house and kept firing on law enforcement officials in an ongoing standoff.

    A third wounded deputy is in stable condition.

    Sheriff's spokesman Chris Curtice had no further details about the standoff, although a neighbor reported hearing hundreds of shots. It's unclear if any other people were inside the home.

    One of our guys knows a Chippie who was on scene. It was bad.

    Also while this was going on an SRO said that he was hearing shots fired and kids running from the school. They told him he had no backup. Apparently a Captain said he would go from the next district over. We have been able to find a story about that one. The best I can piece together is that it was "just" a drive by.
