GARLAND, Texas (AP) — According to a law enforcement official, one of the two men who opened fire with assault rifles Sunday in Texas had been on the FBI's radar a few years ago during a terrorism investigation. The shooting took place outside an event that included a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest. Authorities say the two suspects were killed by police.

BALTIMORE (AP) — The sound of a gunshot Monday has created tension in Baltimore near the scene of last week's unrest. Police say a man spotted on surveillance cameras with a gun was arrested after a brief chase. A police spokesman says a round was spent from the suspect's gun and that officers did not fire a shot. The suspect is said to have been uninjured but taken to a hospital in an ambulance anyway.

NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama says a sense of powerlessness and unfairness among young minorities has helped fuel the protests the nation has seen in Baltimore and in Ferguson, Missouri. He says the catalyst of those protests were the deaths of young black men and "a feeling that law is not always applied evenly in this country." Obama spoke as he announced the launch of a nonprofit foundation to carry out the work of his My Brother's Keeper initiative. He says the need for greater opportunity for young people goes beyond policing.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton has agreed to testify on Capitol Hill later this month about the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, and about her email practices. Her lawyer David Kendall wrote to lawmakers today telling them she would agree to the request from a special panel investigating the September 2012 attacks that killed four Americans. But Kendall said Clinton would testify only for one session. The committee chairman had requested that she appear twice, for a hearing on Clinton's use of private emails and for a separate session on Benghazi.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Add two more names to the list of Republicans who hope to be the next president. Retired brain surgeon Ben Carson and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina both launched their campaigns Monday.
