Coroner: Minkler shooting suspect was wounded

FRESNO, Calif.

The coroner's office said Ricky Liles was shot three times in his right forearm before he took his own life in the February standoff.

Authorities say Liles opened fire on Fresno County Sheriff's Deputies who had come to his mobile home on February 25th to serve a search warrant. Liles had apparently vowed not go to prison and to take the lives of several officers before killing himself.

Sheriff's Deputy Joel Wahlenmaier and Reedley Police Officer Javier Bejar died in the attack. Deputy Mark Harris was wounded.
