A winning Mega Millions ticket worth nearly $2 million was sold at a San Bruno liquor store, but no one from the Golden State will share in Tuesday's overall jackpot of $414 million. Instead, cowinners from Florida and Maryland will split the third-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history with a cash value of more than $224 million. The largest jackpot was $656 million, split among winners in three states in 2012. Lottery officials said the two tickets matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night: 11, 19, 24, 33, 51, plus the Mega Ball of 7. Eight people in various states matched five numbers correctly and won at least $1 million each.  The ticket sold at Huntington Liquor in San Bruno, missing only the Mega Ball, is worth $1,962,339, according to lottery officials.

Police in Northern California arrested an 18-year-old Fairfield man Thursday who they say bit off his infant son's nose after becoming frustrated with the baby's incessant crying. The month-old boy was taken to Oakland Children's Hospital, where doctors determined that the baby also suffered a skull fracture and brain hemorrhage.  The child is in stable condition, said Troy Oviatt of the Fairfield Major Crimes Unit. Police were called to child's home early Thursday by the baby's hysterical 17-year-old mother, who reported that the baby was bleeding from the nose, Oviatt said. Doctors said about a third of the infant's nose had been severed.
