Shooting at San Bernardino club, gas station leaves two dead, five injured

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/05/2015 - 03:24
By Michael Fleeman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Two people were killed and five injured before dawn on Wednesday after gunfire erupted at a nightclub and nearby gas station in a Los Angeles suburb before the violence spread to a hospital where one of the victims died, authorities said. About 200 people were in a parking lot leaving Stinger’s Bar & Nightclub in San Bernardino, about 59 miles (95 km) east of Los Angeles, when shots rang out, killing one man and injuring five others, two of them critically, according to San Bernardino police Lieutenant Rich Lawhead. Another man who is believed to have fled the scene by car was fatally shot later at a nearby gas station in what was being treated as a related incident, Lawhead said. "We just don't know what happened," Eugene Jones, 31, who hosted the so-called "Taco Tuesday" event that preceded the shooting, told the San Bernardino Sun. "Everything was ending, the lights were on, I was telling people to get home safe when we heard the gunshots." Later in the morning, the violence spilled over to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where about 75 people waiting just outside the entrance to the emergency room became upset after being informed that one of the victims had died, according to San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Bachman.

Ohio reaches deal with maker of heroin overdose antidote

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/05/2015 - 03:00
The maker of a heroin overdose antidote used by police in many states will give rebates to state and local agencies in Ohio after the state's top law enforcement official criticized a spike in the price of the drug. California-based Amphastar Pharmaceuticals Inc will offer a $6 rebate for each dose of the drug, naloxone, bought by non-federal public entities in Ohio in the next year, Attorney General Mike DeWine said Wednesday. Amphastar has also agreed to increase the rebate to match any further price increases in the next year, DeWine said. Law enforcement officials nationwide have embraced its use in the midst of an increase in opioid abuse, which U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has called an "urgent and growing public health crisis." The wholesale price of the drug, which hovered around $14 per dose in 2013 and early 2014, shot up to $28.50 by October, DeWine wrote in a letter in February to Amphastar asking it to cut the price of naloxone for public entities.
