CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago man was charged with first-degree murder Friday in connection with the slaying of a 9-year-old boy who police say was lured from a playground and shot in the head because of his father's gang ties.
Several people were wounded Friday when a shootout erupted between police and a gunman at a Planned Parenthood family planning center in the US state of Colorado.
