    L.A. police make arrest in death of woman shot to death on street

    LOS ANGELES — Why would anyone gun down a young woman walking down the street with her boyfriend and then calmly stroll away?

    LAFAYETTE, La. — Before John Houser shot 11 people at a Louisiana movie theater, he switched his car’s license plate and kept wigs in his hotel room with which he apparently intended to disguise himself. Houser stood up in the Lafayette theater where the comedy “Trainwreck” was showing Thursday and fired off one 10-round clip, Police Chief Jim Craft said Friday. He killed two women and injured nine other people before he turned the gun on himself. “This was slow […]

    Lafayette theater shooter: A drifter who leaves police little to go on

    LAFAYETTE, La. – The gunman in Thursday’s movie theater shooting in Lafayette, Louisiana, was a drifter with no obvious motive for his crime, police told reporters Friday. John Russel Houser, 59, blew into town in early July, Lafayette police Chief Jim Craft said. He had been staying at Motel 6 in the city, where police found wigs and glasses — “disguises basically,” Craft said. But why he was there, why he chose to stand up in a movie theater full […]

Carol Spaw listened to the entire call, taking written notes and even recording the last few minutes of audio with a nearby iPhone. […]

    Dunkin’ CEO: $15 min wage is ‘outrageous’

    NEW YORK — Dunkin’ Donuts’ top executive says a $15 minimum wage for fast food workers is “absolutely outrageous.” On Thursday, New York state’s wage board recommended fast food workers make at least $15 per hour. The board said it should happen by the end of 2018 in New York City. Dunkin’ Brand CEO Nigel Travis says the plan will do more harm than good. Travis said he supports governments making “reasonable increases” to the minimum wage, but a hike […]
