    ACAPULCO, Mexico—It was the beginning of just another day in one of the world’s most murderous places. Cristian Sabino was sitting on a plastic chair by this beach resort’s central market when a gunman walked up and shot him five times. As the 22-year-old dropped to the ground, the assailant fired a final bullet to the head and walked away. Six more people would be killed that day in Acapulco, including a cabdriver who was hacked to pieces. Death is so much part of the landscape that once police cordoned off the area around Mr. Sabino’s body, some patrons at...

    Former Minneapolis cop's behavior before shooting death of Australian woman raised concerns, court filings say. (Full title). ... The former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond once put a gun to a driver’s head during a traffic stop and sometimes ignored calls, according to court filings indicating that psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about his fitness for duty. The revelations surfaced after defense attorneys filed a motion Wednesday seeking to dismiss murder and manslaughter charges against Mohamed Noor, who is accused of shooting Damond in July 2017 after she dialed 911 to report...

    Lawyers for the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Damond have filed a response to the state outlining “factual misstatements and mischaracterizations.” Mohamed Noor’s attorneys dispute several items brought up in the state’s court filing last week, including a motor vehicle stop on May 18, 2017, four training days and “misleading discussion” of his psych evaluation. Noor’s lawyers want this information declared inadmissible in court and not considered for probable cause. In Wednesday’s filing, the lawyers call the state's claims “disgraceful” and “inaccurate," stating that “these lies by omission and clear misstatements of fact actively...

    The Hennepin County Attorney's Office is asking a federal court judge to grant a request by attorneys for former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor to have a civil case filed against Noor and others stayed until after his trial on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges has concluded.

The family of Justine Damond - the Australian woman killed in the July 2017 shooting - has filed a lawsuit in federal court against Noor, partner Matthew Harrity, former police chief Janee Harteau, current police chief Medaria Arradondo and the city.

    Hennepin County prosecutors say a now-former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Damond in July 2017 showed a reckless disregard for human life, citing his response to previous police calls and his training records. Prosecutors filed documents Wednesday detailing Mohamed Noor's psychological evaluation prior to becoming an officer and his actions during a call hours before he killed Damond. Those training records are contained in the new filings. They offer the first glimpse of Noor's behavior and personal insights while he was preparing to become an officer. During Noor's 2015 psychological evaluation, he self-reported that "... he disliked...

    A Hennepin County District Judge has denied a motion to place a court filing under seal in the case of former Minneapolis officer Mohamed Noor, who faces a trial in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk. The request by Noor's attorneys would have sealed a motion they filed last month. The attorneys had asked the court to suppress Noor's psychological records obtained in two search warrants. Judge Kathryn Quaintance wrote in her decision on Tuesday that Noor's attorneys argued in private on Aug. 19 that sealing a suppression motion and "correlating exhibits" are necessary to protect "confidential and medically privileged"...

    The paint on the road near a predominantly Latino community near Des Moines read, "Deport Illegals." The sprayed-on sentiment didn't last the day, but some officials in the Iowa city are worried it's indicative of a simmering resentment for immigrants that has become more public recently. The red paint defaced both directions on a two-lane road on the city's south side on Thursday. "These actions are unfortunate and not consistent with Des Moines' spirit of compassion," Mayor Frank Cownie said. "Such actions have no place in our city." A city worker painted over the words later in the day. The...

    <p>Authorities say a South Carolina woman has been charged with murder after killing her husband by putting eye drops into his water for several days. York County deputies said 52-year-old Lana Clayton confessed to investigators after an autopsy uncovered a high amount of tetrahydrozoline in her husband's body. The chemical is found in over-the-counter eye drops such as Visine. Authorities say 64-year-old Stephen Clayton was found dead July 21 in the couple's home in Clover. Arrest warrants and the statement from deputies didn't give a motive for the alleged poisoning. Lana Clayton also is charged with malicious tampering with a drug product or food. Jail records did not indicate if she had a lawyer.</p>
