Shyanne competes alongside junior shooters, who are participants younger than 18, and even adults. Last year, she beat out adult women to place second in the Women's Division of the New Jersey Ruger Rimfire Challenge.

    A gunman in Saudi Arabia opened fire Tuesday on two American defense contractors, killing one and wounding the other before being arrested in a shootout with police, U.S. and Saudi officials said. One individual familiar with the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity in advance of an official Saudi statement, said the attack was a workplace dispute related to the firing of the alleged shooter and was not terrorism-related. The identities of the Americans and suspected attacker were not immediately released, but the State Department said the Americans worked for Vinnell Arabia, a U.S.-based contractor with deep ties in...

    In what is already being cited by the media as a flashback to the events in Furguson, there has been another shooting in the St. Lois area involving a white police officer and a black teenager. This one has several twists, however, which at least initially make it sound like a different set of circumstances. But the resulting protests look eerily similar. Another police-involved fatal shooting of a teenager, this time in south St. Louis not far from the Missouri Botanical Garden, led to hours of protests overnight Wednesday and into Thursday morning as an angry crowd gathered quickly...

    After the recent ammo drought, it’s good to see relatively cheap bulk pistol ammo returning to store shelves. But ammo buyers need to be aware that not everything is as it seems and not all ammo is created equal. I found this Winchester “150 Round Value Pack” of 9mm NATO 124 gr ammo for sale at my local Gander Mountain for $49.99 recently. That works out to about $16.66 per 50, which is not bad for reloadable brass cased 9mm in the current market. That is, until you read the (very) fine print on the bottom of the box that...

    The gunman parked his black Honda directly south of the White House, in the dark of a November night, in a closed lane of Constitution Avenue. He pointed his semiautomatic rifle out of the passenger window, aimed directly at the home of the president of the United States, and pulled the trigger. A bullet smashed a window on the second floor, just steps from the first family’s formal living room. Another lodged in a window frame, and more pinged off the roof, sending bits of wood and concrete to the ground. At least seven bullets struck the upstairs residence of...

Days later, prosecutors aren’t satisfied with the answer. Authorities released dash-camera video Wednesday showing what they say is Sean Groubert, then a South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper, shooting Levar Jones, who was unarmed, in the parking lot of a gas station just outside Columbia on September 4. Jones, 35, survived the shooting. But Groubert, who was fired because of the incident last week, has been charged with aggravated assault...

The video was created at 12:02:14 p.m. that day, Glide said. Brown, who was unarmed, was shot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shortly after noon.

The attacks outside this city and in an area to the north essentially have opened a new, third front in the war in eastern Ukraine between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russian separatists, along with the fighting outside the cities of Donetsk and Luhansk.

    Nearly two weeks after Michael Brown’s death, a police report on the shooting has finally been made public. But the glaring lack of detail is likely to increase widespread criticism that the law-enforcement community is closing ranks around Darren Wilson, the officer who fatally shot Brown on Aug. 9. The incident report, filed by the St. Louis County police department, contains no new information on the encounter between Brown and Wilson. There are no written details about the event. As a result, the officer’s account of what transpired when the two men met just after noon on Aug. 9 remains...

That was CNN's Wolf Blitzer's question to legal scholar Jeffrey Toobin when discussing the shooting death of Ferguson, Missouri, teenager Michael Brown. "Why can't they shoot a warning shot?... Why can't they shoot to injure?" Blitzer queried. To answer Blitzer's (and your) questions, here's a general overview of why police don't shoot to wound:
