SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A man who was critically wounded during a shooting rampage in California that left two deputies dead says the gunman was smiling when he shot him.

Anthony Holmes also told KCRA-TV on Wednesday that he hesitated briefly when the man demanded his car. He says the gunman then got angry and shot him several times at close range.

Holmes said he used his hands and arms to protect his head. He was left with a shattered jaw and left arm and will need at least a month of treatment and therapy.

Two Utah residents, Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte and his wife, 38-year-old Janelle Marquez Monroy, have been charged with murder and attempted murder in the Oct. 24 rampage. They have not entered pleas.
