Community remains in mourning after Virginia Beach shooting

The Virginia Beach Municipal Center will reopen Tuesday after 12 people were killed when a public works employee opened fire at the building last week. The suspected shooter, a 15-year veteran of public works and a civil engineer, put in his two-weeks notice Friday morning, hours before the attack. Police say the suspect was armed with a .45 caliber handgun with a silencer, believed to be used for stealth and to keep victims from knowing where the attacker was in the building. Authorities are still investigating and have said they do not know the shooter's motive. Building 2, where the shooting took place, will be closed indefinitely.

Pompeo angers China on 30th anniversary of Tiananmen Square protests

China stepped up security around Tiananmen Square in central Beijing on Tuesday —the 30th anniversary of the bloody crackdown on pro-democracy protests at the square. Extra checkpoints and street closures greeted tourists who showed up before 5 a.m. to watch the daily flag-raising ceremony. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a statement Monday saluting what he called the "heroes of the Chinese people who bravely stood up thirty years ago … to demand their rights." A post on the website of the Chinese Embassy in Washington then said Pompeo’s statement “grossly intervenes in China’s internal affairs … and smears its domestic and foreign policies.”  For many Chinese, the anniversary will pass like any other day. Any commemoration of the massacre— believed to have killed hundreds and possibly thousands of people — is not allowed in mainland China, and the government has blocked access to information about it on the internet.

Big Ten makes major announcement

For the first time in 30 years, the Big Ten Conference will be announcing the hire of a new commissioner. The announcement will be made Tuesday during a noon ET press conference. The new hire will replace longtime leader Jim Delany, who has held the Big Ten commissioner post since 1989, following Delany’s retirement once his contract expires June 30, 2020. During Delany’s tenure, the league expanded from 10 to 14 teams, added conference tournaments for basketball, saw the creation of the Big Ten championship game in football and saw the launch of the successful Big Ten Network. Those moves helped the Big Ten grow into one of the most powerful conferences in college sports — despite plenty of controversy surrounding member schools. The new hire will have just over a year to prepare to replace one of the most powerful people in college sports.

An interactive monument called Stonewall Forever, a project that aims to tell stories of the people at the center of the landmark LGBTQ civil rights demonstrations, opens Tuesday to mark the 50th anniversary of the riots.

The Stonewall Forever interactive monument, accessible worldwide on desktop, mobile and an augmented reality app, will have archived material such as photos, letters, oral histories and a documentary featuring activists past and present.
