Accused El Paso gunman's family 'devastated' after massacre The grandparents of the man accused of killing 20 people in El Paso over the weekend have issued a statement. A family friend read the statement from Larry and Cynthia Brown outside the couple's home in Allen, Texas. 

The Newark police lieutenant accused of shooting his wife to death and wounding her boyfriend a month ago is still not ready to make his first court appearance because he continues to have mental health issues and remains hospitalized under psychiatric care, his lawyer said this week.

A GOP lawmaker from Nebraska accused his party of 'white supremacy.' They told him to leave

A GOP lawmaker from Nebraska accused his party of 'white supremacy.' They told him to leave State Sen. John McCollister, tweeting after the shootings in Dayton and El Paso, said President Donald Trump "stokes racist fears in his base."

Anthony J. Iacullo, the defense attorney for Formisano, said his client continues to undergo “psychological treatment and observation at this time.”

“When and if he is well enough to appear in court, he will do so at that time,” Iacullo said. “Until then, the focus of the defense is to allow the medical personnel to do their job and hopefully return John to the way he was before this incident.”

Ex-con who shot dead a cop and injured two others in 'horrific gun battle' when he was pulled over on a California highway was depressed and having marital problems, says his father California Highway Patrol officer Andre Moye, 33, was killed in a hail of gunfire near a freeway in Riverside on Monday after a man, whose pickup truck was being impounded, opened fire.

“I am not a doctor and I make no representations as to when or whether John will be able to appear in court or if he was able to appreciate his alleged actions on the night in question,” the attorney said.

“That is something that professionals with medical degrees will determine at the appropriate time hopefully in the near future,” he said.
