SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, Calif. San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies shot and killed a camouflage-clad gunman Monday during a shootout with three people protecting a marijuana crop in mountains north of Fontana, officials said.

A manhunt for two others involved in the firefight continued into the night, with deputies searching the rugged terrain on foot and in four-wheelers. Late Monday, the search was called off, with no arrests made.
