SAN DIEGO (AP) - Authorities say a man opened fire on police and firefighters at a San Diego condominium, wounding two officers before being found dead in the aftermath of a two-hour confrontation. Police Chief David Nisleit tells the San Diego Union-Tribune the officers arrived after 10 p.m. Saturday and returned fire. Investigators were unsure whether the suspect was killed in the firefight or from a self-inflicted gunshot.

PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) - A 9-year-old English bulldog was named the winner of the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog contest in the San Francisco Bay Area. Zsa Zsa won the title Saturday in the competition where dogs with hairless bodies and lolling tongues flaunt their imperfections. The dogs walk down a red carpet and are evaluated by a panel of judges. The winner takes home $1,500. Zsa Zsa's owner is Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A big baby has made its debut at Los Angeles Zoo. The zoo announced this week that a female Masai giraffe was born on May 15, the fourth baby born to mother Hasina and the third for the father, Phillip. The calf, unveiled Thursday for World Giraffe Day, stands about 6 feet tall and weighs around 176 pounds. It doesn't have a name yet.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Teen actress Jenna Ortega cares, and says Melania Trump should do the same. Ortega wore a green, hooded jacket reading "I do care and u should too" on the red carpet at the Radio Disney Music Awards Friday, to counter the "I really don't care, do u?" jacket the first lady wore as she left to visit detained migrant children this week. The 15-year-old "Jane the Virgin" actress says Trump's jacket showed poor judgment, and she couldn't believe her advisers allowed her to wear it.
