    The 34-year-old man involved in a Thursday shooting that left both himself and a Lebanon police officer dead had mental health issues and had strangled a former girlfriend multiple times, court documents said. Travis Shaud was unemployed and on disability because of his mental illness last year when his ex-girlfriend and mother of his 1-year-old child filed a protection of abuse order against him, Lebanon County documents said. Shaud’s criminal record before the fatal shootout Thursday wasn’t extensive, but two assault charges, accounts from his neighbors and his own social media posts paint a troubled portrait of him. Police said...

    When Chicago Police officer Ella French was murdered after a traffic stop on another bloody weekend in the city of anarchy, Mayor Lori Lightfoot made her “big speech.” Mayors always make “the big speech” when a police officer is killed in the line of duty. And the one Lightfoot delivered on Sunday was typical of others I’ve seen. It was somber and sought to bridge the divide between police critics and supporters and protect her own flanks. And it was deeply political, because she used it to cover her own flanks. But Lightfoot forgot an important part. She forgot to...

    Officials refused to say the name of the gunman involved in the west Texas shooting out loud during a press conference Sunday.

There are no definitive answers as to motive or reasons at this point. But we are fairly certain that the subject did act alone,” Gerke, who was accompanied by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said. “You’ll notice that I’m not naming...

    The trial of a man charged with killing two Southern California police officers in an ambush-style attack began with tears Wednesday, as jurors cried when the prosecutor in the case held up the AR-15 rifle used in the killings and described the fatal wounds.
