A San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy about to serve an eviction notice was wounded in the face and arm Tuesday morning in a drive-by shooting that authorities characterized as an ambush. The veteran deputy was hospitalized in good condition at Loma Linda University Medical Center and is expected to survive, authorities said. A San Bernardino police sergeant spotted the suspected gunman's car a quarter of a mile away from the shooting scene. The driver was taken into custody after a short foot chase.

The state attorney general's office will join an expanding probe of political corruption in San Bernardino County centered largely on the past activities of the assessor's office, officials said Monday. So far the investigation has led to the arrest of former Assessor Bill Postmus and four former employees in his office. Allegations include using the assessor's staff to do political work, forgery, grand theft, perjury and failure to report gifts from a developer. Postmus was arrested in January on drug charges.

The chairman of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors on Friday called for a special meeting next week to discuss ways to oust recently arrested county Assessor Bill Postmus from his job. "After [Thursday's] investigative raids by the district attorney's office and the arrest of Mr. Postmus, it is clear that this intolerable situation has to be remedied immediately," Chairman Gary Ovitt said.

San Bernardino County officials said Tuesday they would investigate the Ecstasy-related death of a 22-year-old man who collapsed while attending a government-approved rave concert in September. A county spokesman said the officials were unaware of the death of Arrel Christopher Cochon until after The Times reported on it late Monday. The Los Angeles City College student was the third person since 2006 to die of a drug overdose after attending a San Bernardino-area rave staged by Insomniac Inc., a Times review of coroner records shows.

Two small earthquakes struck San Bernardino County near here Sunday night. No one was hurt and no damage was reported. The larger quake, measuring 3.4, hit at 6:05 p.m. about 12 miles east-northeast of Barstow, said Steve Bryant, seismologist at Cal Tech in Pasadena. The smaller quake, which registered 3.3, occurred 23 minutes later at the same location, Bryant said. Both were aftershocks to a magnitude 5.1 quake that jarred the area March 18.
