Manhunt: Prayers went up, the rain came down and tensions cooled overnight in Ferguson, Missouri. It was a far cry from 24 hours earlier, when tempers flared and two police officers took bullets in the St. Louis suburb. Investigators believe they have identified two people they want to question in the shooting, and one of them might be the shooter, a law enforcement official said. The gunfire erupted during protests following the resignation of Police Chief Thomas Jackson on Wednesday. The department has been under fire since the Michael Brown shooting in August and a scathing Justice Department report that documents a pattern of racial discrimination.
Lots of questions: The circumstances are murky in the investigation of two Secret Service agents who are accused of crashing a car into a White House barricade. The agents in question are George Ogilvie, a top supervisor in the Washington field office, and Mark Connolly, a high-ranking member of President Barack Obama’s personal security detail, law enforcement officials said. While there’s no doubt the two agents were returning from a farewell party, it’s still unclear when, exactly, the agents were stopped, and what gave the impression that they weren’t entirely sober. This is the fourth scandal for the agency in three years.
Under assault: While Iraqi forces appear poised to take Tikrit back from ISIS in north, it’s a different story west of Baghdad in Ramadi. More than 40 Iraqi soldiers were killed when ISIS blew up the Iraqi army headquarters just outside the town, an Anbar provincial leader said. ISIS launched a new offensive on Ramadi on Wednesday morning. Officials believe this is an ISIS response to the Tikrit operation that is ongoing in the north.
