TULARE, Calif. (AP) - A wanted man opened fire on Central California police during a stand-off Thursday, hitting an officer in his helmet.

Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux says the officer was taken to the hospital, treated and released.

KFSN reports (https://abc30.tv/2edh8Pz ) police say 37-year-old Larry Zamora shot a woman, believed to be his wife, and his baby girl early Thursday morning before hiding in a home several miles away. Both the woman and the baby are listed in critical condition. Their names and ages were not released.

Tulare Police and members of the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office have surrounded the home, where Zamora remains alone. Boudreaux says the suspect fired multiple times at law enforcement. Neighbors have been evacuated.
