Question of the Day
Police say gunman attacked at random
PHOENIX | A man accused of opening fire in a Phoenix strip club, killing two people and injuring three others, told police that he had planned the crime and chose the victims at random, according to a court document released Tuesday.
Gavin Macfarlane, 28, of Scottsdale, is accused of shooting four people with a .38-caliber revolver and physically attacking a fifth person at the Great Alaskan Bush Company shortly before midnight Sunday. Patrons tackled and beat him after he ran out of ammunition.
Mr. Macfarlane’s mug shot shows him with a torn shirt; a bloody nose, chin and forehead; and the beginning of two black eyes. He remained held in the Maricopa County jail’s psychiatric unit on a $2 million cash bond, and it was unclear whether he has an attorney.
A jail spokesman declined to say why Mr. Macfarlane was in the psychiatric unit. Phoenix police said that some of his wounds were self-inflicted, but declined to elaborate.
Passenger arrested in bullet explosion
MIAMI | A 37-year-old man is facing a federal charge after bullet primers ignited in his bag as it was being unloaded at Miami International Airport from a flight that had just arrived.
FBI spokesman Mike Leverock says there is no connection to terrorism. The man is a naturalized U.S. citizen who was traveling Tuesday on an American Airlines flight from Boston to Miami and on to Jamaica. His name was not immediately released.
Mr. Leverock says several hundred bullet primers were discovered inside the bag after some ignited. No one was injured, although a few small shards struck the shoe of a baggage handler. The man was being held on a charge of traveling in interstate commerce without a license to carry ammunition.
Sprouts blamed in salmonella cases
ATLANTA | An outbreak of salmonella that was tied to tainted alfalfa sprouts has grown to at least 94 cases in 16 states.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday said the case count had risen from 89 cases in 15 states in the past week, with California joining the list.
