The man called Ridgecrest police early Friday morning with a warning: He planned to "wreak havoc" on the Central California community. Less than three hours later, the caller - already suspected of killing one person and wounding another - lived up to his word. He led authorities on a high-speed, 35-mile chase on a Mojave Desert highway, shooting at authorities and other vehicles and forcing drivers off the road.
