MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — From a former Minnesota man’s involvement in a Texas attack to President Obama visiting Letterman, here are the stories to know for Tuesday, May 5.

Fmr. Minnesotan Plays Key Role In Texas Attack

A WCCO investigation finds a former Minnesota man may have played a key role in a Texas attack.

On Tuesday morning, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack happened in Texas at an event featuring controversial cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed. Two attackers were shot and killed by police.

A review of social media accounts found that a 25-year-old Minnesotan who is known as Mujahid Miski had talked online about the Texas event before it happened.

POTUS On Letterman

President Obama was on the Late Show last night.

The two talked about a serious issue facing our country right now: race and the recent unrest around the country in response to police shootings.

Obama said dealing with the country’s racial past and its current problems requires vigilance, comparing it to “tending a garden.”

Met Gala

Everyone is talking about Queen Bey. Many say her dress was on fleek — or perfect — at the Met Gala last night.

The Met Gala is an event that mixes celebrities and fun fashion.

This year’s theme revolved around the exhibition called, “China: Through the Looking Glass.”

Other top-talked about looks: Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lawrence and Rihanna.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

In Mexico, it marks the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, when Mexico defeated the French.

Mexican Americans see the day as a source of pride.

Here in America, many bars and restaurants will use the day to make money. In fact, if you’re hungry now, you can get free breakfast at Taco Bell to celebrate from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.
