1. LAS VEGAS SHOOTING
In mourning: A husband-and-wife team with extremist views shock a community when they gun down two police officers and a civilian. The officers were eating pizza when guns were pulled. They had no time to react. Moving across the parking lot, the couple entered a Walmart. A customer with a concealed weapon intervened, but was killed when he didn’t realize both suspects were carrying guns. As police close in, the woman kills her husband, then takes her own life. Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman says the community is in tears.
2. BERGDAHL RELEASE
Answering questions: The Obama administration still has plenty of explaining to do after another round of briefings on the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Members of Congress want to know more about the prisoners swap that saw five Taliban figures go free. There are also questions about why the White House didn’t consult congressional leadership as they moved forward with the deal. More briefings are scheduled today.
3. BOKO HARAM KIDNAPPINGS
More abductions: Suspected Boko Haram militants kidnapped at least 20 young women over the weekend in northeastern Nigeria. The area is just a few miles from where several hundred schoolgirls were taken captive a couple of months ago. These abductions are commonplace and often involve ransoms for their release.
