Bakersfield, Calif., manhunt

Editor's note: Police are searching the wilderness near Bakersfield, Calif., after a string of violence last week that authorities believe can be attributed to one man. On July 28, police say the unidentified gunman held 3 men captive in a cabin where authorities believe he had been squatting. The men managed to escape when the gunman stepped outside. Two days later, a retired dentist was found shot to death in a cabin 10 miles away. On August 1, police say the gunman fired on SWAT deputies, injuring two of them. - Jillian
