In the US on Tuesday a man went on a shooting spree in Alabama after setting his mother on fire in her house. The 28-year-old, Michael McLendon, killed 10 people including five family members.

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Robert Howard had two dreams: becoming a doctor and winning an Olympic medal. He came close to achieving both. He made the finals in the triple jump twice, in Atlanta eight years ago and again in Sydney in 2000. This year was to be his last in medical school. Then, early Saturday, just as the 2004 Summer Games were getting under way in Athens, Howard leaped to his death - from a dormitory next to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, dressed in blood-splattered surgical scrubs. Police surmise the blood was that of Howard's...

Bryan Patterson. "Nobody that I know of had any kind of a hint that there were any kind of problems at all, let alone problems to that degree," said Dick Booth, an assistant coach at Arkansas who helped Howard prepare for the...

It's the kind of place where neighbors look out for one another and few people lock their doors. But now it's a town reeling from what many residents would have considered a big-city crime: the slaying...

    ALLIANCE -- Leroy Zeigler spoke softly and calmly about his daughter, Andrea Zeigler Floyd, who was shot and killed near an Army base about a week ago. He remembered her raising goats for 4-H. He remembered her as a standout athlete at Marlington High School. And he remembered her kind gestures.
