The Wayne County deputies went to a home south of Goldsboro to serve the papers Monday morning when officials say someone inside opened fire, wounding all three. After an hourslong barricade, officials say SWAT team members found the suspect, identified as Jourdan Hamilton, dead inside with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The deputies were taken to hospitals and on Tuesday, officials announced that Sgt. Matthew Fishman had died. Gov.

The special investigator hired by Republicans in Wisconsin to review the 2020 election told lawmakers publicly they should consider decertifying President Joe Biden’s win, but later said in a private memo that such a move would be a “practical impossibility.” Former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman was hired by Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos in June 2021 to investigate Donald Trump’s loss in Wisconsin. Vos hired Gableman under intense pressure from Trump and others who falsely believed the election had been stolen from the former president.

A prosecutor says a man who evaded arrest for more than 12 years after being accused of fatally shooting his two teenage daughters in a taxi parked near a Dallas-area hotel was “obsessed with possession and control.” Yaser Said is on trial for capital murder in the shooting deaths of 18-year-old Amina Said and 17-year-old Sarah Said on New Year’s Day in 2008. Said has pleaded not guilty. Prosecutor Lauren Black said during opening statements Tuesday that Said controlled what his daughters did, who they were friends with, and if and whom they could date. Said wrote in a letter to the judge overseeing the case that he wasn't happy with his kids’ “dating activity” but denied killing his daughters.
The man who initiated the neighborhood chase that resulted in the fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery is asking a federal judge to show leniency when he's sentenced for a federal hate crime conviction. Greg McMichael's defense attorney says his client should be spared a life sentence, though he has already been sentenced to life without parole on a separate murder conviction. He also asks that McMichael be transferred to a federal prison, allowing him to bypass serving time in a Georgia state prison. McMichael, his adult son and their neighbor are all scheduled for sentencing Monday. Arbery's family has opposed letting the men go straight to federal prison, saying time served in state prison would be tougher.
The Biden administration is holding out the CIA operation that killed al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri as a monumental strike against the global terror network responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks of 2001. But the moment is also putting into stark relief mounting evidence that after America's withdrawal, Afghanistan has once again become an active staging ground for Islamic terror groups looking to attack the West. The Biden administration says it shows Americans at home and allies abroad that the United States hasn’t lost focus, or the ability, to strike against terrorists in the region — and validates its decision to end two decades of fighting in Afghanistan.

The Arizona Cardinals have activated receiver Marquise Brown from the non-football injury list. Brown was acquired in a draft-day trade with the Baltimore Ravens, giving the Cardinals a receiver who caught 91 passes for 1,007 yards and six touchdowns last season. Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Brown suffered a minor hamstring injury before camp started while working out on his own. The 25-year-old is expected to have a big role in Arizona’s offense, particularly early in the season when three-time All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins is out for the first six games. Hopkins was suspended in May for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancers.

Five teams have clinched postseason berths and only three games separating Chicago, Las Vegas and Connecticut at the top of the standings. Seattle and Washington also have earned a spot in the postseason and are tied for fourth and fifth.

President Joe Biden’s “loose cough” has returned as he faces a rebound case of COVID-19, his doctor said Tuesday, though he “continues to feel well.” White House physician Kevin O’Connor provided the update on the president’s condition as he continues to test positive for the virus,. He said Biden “remains fever-free,” and that his temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation “remain entirely normal.” Still, Biden is required to remain in isolation through at least Thursday under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines — and perhaps longer under tougher White House protocols if he continues to test positive.
Fire crews battling a western Nebraska wildfire that has destroyed some homes are looking to the skies with hope and trepidation as weather forecasters warn of thunderstorms. The National Weather Service forecast a 50% chance of thunderstorms producing heavy rains Tuesday afternoon into the night. A storm could help douse the Carter Canyon Fire south of Gering that has scorched about 25 square miles of mostly grass and timberland. The fire has destroyed three homes and damaged several more in the Carter Canyon community that was evacuated Sunday. While fire crews would welcome rain, they fear lightning strikes that could spark new fires in the tinder-dry region. Firefighters had the fire about 30% contained going into Tuesday.

Tyler Reddick has become a NASCAR Cup Series multi-race winner in a month's time, while the regular season continues with a chance to leave a star out of the 10-race playoffs. Ryan Blaney and Martin Truex Jr. remain the non-winners in position for one of the 16 postseason spots. Without Kevin Harvick winning one of the next four races to supplant them, that would leave the 2014 champ out for the first time. IndyCar's Alexander Rossi's first victory in 49 races left six-time series champion Scott Dixon with four races to catch new points leader and 2014 champ Will Power.
