The standoff began Thursday morning after gunfire broke out as two Stanislaus County deputies went to the Whispering Woods development to serve an eviction notice. A deputy and civilian were killed, and the suspect immediately barricaded himself inside an apartment. Authorities prepared Friday to enter the fire-gutted, California apartment where they expected to find the suspect in the shooting deaths. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)
