Results Soon From Federal Investigation Into Clark Shooting
Before noon Wednesday, findings of a federal investigation into the shooting death of Jamar Clark will be announced. Minneapolis police shot and killed the 24-year-old last November during a struggle. The U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI have made a decision as to whether two officers intentionally violated Clark’s civil rights through excessive force. The results of that investigation will be announced at 11 a.m.
Jury Deliberations Next After Closing Arguments
Closing arguments are expected to wrap up in the trial of three men accused of trying to join ISIS. The jury should also get the case around midday. Abdirahman Daud, Mohamed Farah, and Guled Omar have pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit murder outside the United States, and other charges. If convicted on the murder charge, they could spend life in prison.
Black Box May Be Found In EgyptAir Crash
There are new signals from deep under the Mediterranean Sea. Egypt says a French ship has picked up the signals that could be from the black boxes of the EgyptAir plane that crashed last month. Officials say the locator pings came from the sea bed of the wreckage search area. The plane crashed on May 19th during a flight from Paris to Cairo. All 66 people on board were killed.
Lynx Still Undefeated This Season
