A gunman in Sanger, California shot and killed a homicide detective and left an officer in critical condition when they arrived at his mobile home to serve him warrants. The gunman then continued firing at authorities after  barricading himself inside his mobile home.

The warrants being served to the gunman were connected to an arson and another shooting.

The second wounded officer was later said to be in stable condition.

It is unclear at this time whether the gunman or his wife who lives with him survived the shootout.

Fresno Sheriff Margaret Mims said, "We lost a good deputy sheriff today."

One neighbor evacuated his property when he heard the commotion, others report hearing hundreds of shots.
