FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Police in Ferguson. Missouri say two men opened fire at a police officer during a foot chase and wounded him in the arm. Officials say the officer encountered two men at a closed community center. The suspects are being sought. Ferguson is the St. Louis suburb that's been the scene of racial unrest in the wake of the shooting death of an unarmed black 18-year-old by a white officer.

SPRINGVILLE, Utah (AP) — Police in Utah say the cause of death of five people found in a house in Springville, near Provo, isn't readily apparent. Authorities say they don't think the community is in danger. The Salt Lake Tribune reports the bodies include two adults, two 14-year-old boys and a 12-year-old girl. Police told the paper that no carbon monoxide was found in the air.

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — The El Paso Department of Public Health says no babies have active tuberculosis but five of about 200 have positive test results. A nurse assistant at an El Paso hospital nursery exposed hundreds of infants to the disease between September 2013 and last month. The five babies will be offered treatment, although four of the children had been vaccinated, meaning their results could be false-positives. Some 850 children may have been exposed.

TOKYO (AP) — Rescue workers say more than 30 people found near the peak of an erupting volcano in japan are believed to be dead. The victims have been described as not breathing with no heartbeat. That's the customary way for Japanese authorities to describe a body until police doctors can examine it. Mount Ontake in central Japan erupted shortly before noon Saturday.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Tropical Storm Rachel has strengthened into a hurricane off Mexico's coast but forecasters say there's no threat to land. It's expected to meander in the Pacific off Mexico. Maximum sustained winds are around 85 mph. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says some additional strengthening might occur overnight but weakening is likely to begin Sunday.
