Two police officers were killed and two people wounded in California when a man went on a shooting spree, officials said, having finally caught up with the suspect after he went on the run. The violence -- which was stretched over several bloody hours and at least two counties -- began around 10:30 am when a police deputy went to investigate a suspicious vehicle parked at a hotel in Sacramento. As he approached, the driver opened fire and struck the deputy in the forehead, Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones told a news conference. The deputy, Danny Oliver, a 15-year veteran who was married with two daughters, was killed.
