LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police say they're trying to determine what prompted a man to shoot his grandmother and then run into a busy Los Angeles supermarket and hold dozens of people hostage for hours. A woman was shot and killed when the gunman ran into the Trader Joe's supermarket in the city's Silver Lake section on Saturday, but no hostages were seriously hurt before he handcuffed himself and surrendered to police. The grandmother was hospitalized in critical condition on Sunday.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jonathan Gold, who became the first restaurant critic to win the Pulitzer Prize for criticism, has died. He was 57. The Los Angeles Times, where Gold most recently worked, reported that Gold died Saturday after being diagnosed earlier this month with pancreatic cancer. Gold's reviews first appeared in L.A. Weekly and later in The Times and Gourmet. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2007 while at L.A. Weekly.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - More than 76 years after he was killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor, a Navy sailor has been laid to rest in California. Electrician's Mate 3rd Class George Harvey Gibson was buried with full military honors at Inglewood Park Cemetery. The Kansas native was assigned to the USS Oklahoma when the ship was attacked by Japanese aircraft on December 7, 1941. The U.S. Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency announced in February that Gibson's body had been accounted for thanks to advances in DNA testing.

MARIPOSA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say two more California firefighters have been injured while battling a stubborn and growing wildfire in steep terrain west of Yosemite National Park. Fire spokesman Rich Eagan says the firefighters were hospitalized Friday after suffering back injuries. Both have been released and are expected to fully recover. Eagan says the fire is expanding to the north into inaccessible and rugged terrain within Sierra National Forest.
