Police say two dead, seven injured in Miami shooting

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 06/25/2014 - 07:45
By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - Two people were killed and seven injured after gunfire erupted early Tuesday morning near a Miami-area apartment building in the low-income neighborhood of Liberty City, a police spokeswoman said. “Two men who ... were carrying an AK-47 and an MR-15, stepped out of a dark SUV and began firing,” police at the scene told the Miami Herald. Police are looking for witnesses, but face an uphill battle in a crime-ridden neighborhood where police say residents are often afraid to come forward for fear of their safety. “There are some people cooperating who want this to end,” Burden said, “but you don’t know who did it, so you want to protect yourself and especially your family.” (Reporting by Zachary Fagenson in Miami;

Florida voter drive seeks to motivate state's youth vote

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 06/25/2014 - 07:41
By Barbara Liston ORLANDO (Reuters) - The Dream Defenders, a student-led group that garnered national attention for occupying the Florida governor's office in 2013 to protest the state's self-defense law, kicked off a campaign on Tuesday to get younger voters to the polls in November. The group of about 300 members is working in nine chapters in Florida counties which are home to the largest state universities. Susan MacManus, a professor at the University of South Florida (USF) in Tampa and a veteran Florida political analyst, called the move "very smart." Women, minority and young voter groups all intersect on college campuses, MacManus said, and their unexpectedly large turnout in Florida in 2012 is credited by many analysts with President Barack Obama winning the state.

By Alexia Shurmur LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - A Las Vegas man involved in a 2011 shooting incident with the crew of reality TV show "Repo Games" was sentenced on Tuesday to 90 days in prison and five years of probation, his lawyer said.

Barron's attorney, Richard W. Tannery, said his client had been sleeping in his home when he was awakened to the sound of a car alarm and left his house with a handgun to investigate.
