A police officer in Minnesota is facing multiple felony charges in last summer's shooting death of Philando Castile. Prosecutors say officer Jeronimo Yanez shot the 32-year-old African-American man seven times during a traffic stop in a St. Paul suburb, even though he posed no threat to anyone. The incident sparked outrage around the world when Castile's girlfriend live streamed the immediate aftermath on Facebook.
Investigators are trying to figure out what motivated a young Minnesota man to go on a stabbing rampage over the weekend at a mall in St. Cloud. The suspect — who was Somali-American — wounded nine people before an off-duty police officer shot him dead. All the victims are expected to recover. The FBI is investigating the attack as a "potential act of terrorism."
