Question of the Day
Man arrested in abortion clinic fire
PENSACOLA | Authorities arrested an Alabama man Thursday on federal charges of setting a New Year’s fire that gutted a Florida Panhandle abortion clinic long targeted by violence and protests.
Bobby Joe Rogers, 41, of Tuscaloosa was charged with violating federal explosives laws and was being held at the Escambia County Jail pending indictment, the state fire marshal's office said. He could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
The two-story clinic that was gutted by flames early Sunday has been attacked before. It was bombed on Christmas Day in 1984, and in 1994, a doctor and a volunteer who escorted patients to and from the clinic were fatally shot as they arrived. The gunman, Paul Hill, was executed in 2003.
No one was hurt in Sunday’s fire, which was reported around 1 a.m.
Officer killed, 6 others wounded in shootout
OGDEN | A shootout erupted when police raided a Utah house on Wednesday evening, killing an officer and seriously wounding five others and the suspect, authorities said.
“It’s a very, very sad day for Ogden,” an emotional Ogden Police Chief Wayne Tarwater said Thursday.
The officers from a task force went to the small, red-brick northern Utah house as part of a routine drug-related investigation. They knocked on the door and identified themselves, he said.
“When there was no answer, they forced entry onto the door,” he said. “When they entered, the officers came under fire.”
The suspect, Matthew David Stewart, 37, has a limited criminal history. He suffered injuries that are not life-threatening, though it’s unclear if he was shot.
Mr. Stewart is in a hospital under guard.
