OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — Officials say three people were shot and killed this afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital says a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition.

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis is calling on people -- including himself -- to look into their own hearts to see how they are living their lives. After listening Sunday to a Gospel account of how Jesus' disciples fell asleep shortly before he was betrayed by Judas, the pope asked, "Has my life fallen asleep?" He asked, "Where is my heart?" -- and said that's the question "which accompanies us" throughout Holy Week. He spoke to a crowd of about 100,000 people in St. Peter's Square on Palm Sunday.

NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market hasn't had a correction -- meaning a fall of 10 percent from recent highs -- since 2011. Investors will be watching again tomorrow to see if one might be in the works -- at least, when it comes to technology stocks. The market dropped for two straight days at the end of the week. And big declines in tech stocks left the Nasdaq below the 4,000 mark. That index has fallen for three weeks in a row.
