Police fired at least 400 rounds in wild California shootout

Police provided the first details Friday of a chaotic shootout in rural Minkler, Calif., on Thursday that left one sheriff's deputy dead, another hospitalized and not expected to live, and the suspect, an ex-con named Ricky Liles, dead, apparently a suicide. What began as an effort to serve an arrest warrant ended with more than 150 law enforcement officers on the scene and a mobile home riddled with at least 535 entry and exit bullet holes.
