TOWNVILLE, S.C. (AP) — A teenager who killed his father at their home Wednesday was stopped by a volunteer firefighter as he opened fire outside a South Carolina elementary school, wounding two students and a teacher, authorities said.
HONOLULU (AP) — The Navy has investigated the case of a sailor who didn't salute as the national anthem played at Pearl Harbor, in a protest that echoes recent moves by professional athletes to kneel during the anthem. The U.S. Pacific Fleet referred her case to her commander, who has the authority to punish the sailor, a Navy reservist. Saluting during the national anthem is a daily ritual for men and women in the military. Here's a look at the protocol behind it.
A teenage gunman, who injured three people at a South Carolina elementary school before being arrested, carried out the attack after killing his father, local officials said. The teen, whom the authorities did not identify, shot two boys -- one in the leg, the other in the foot -- as well as a teacher in the shoulder at Townville Elementary in the west of the southeastern US state, area officials told reporters. "The investigation is in initial stages... it's going to be a very slow, methodical and meticulous investigation," Captain Garland Major of the Anderson County Sheriff's Office said.
