LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) — The man acquitted of killing black teen Trayvon Martin may be in trouble again. Authorities in Florida say on Monday, George Zimmerman got into dispute with the same man he was involved in a road rage incident with last year. This time, an attorney says, a bullet just missed Zimmerman's head, spraying glass from the vehicle's windshield. Zimmerman was treated at a hospital and released. Zimmerman has had a series of run-ins with girlfriends, his ex-wife and random strangers.

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — The mother of the man accused of killing two police officers in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, says she tried to talk her son into getting help for his drug use and mental illness, but he refused. Marvin Banks is charged with capital murder for allegedly gunning down the two officers during a traffic stop Saturday. Banks' girlfriend and brother are charged as accessories to murder and a friend is accused of obstruction.

VAN, Texas (AP) — Officials in the small East Texas town of Van say they've now accounted for everyone reported missing following Sunday's deadly tornado.

MOSCOW (AP) — The Kremlin is confirming that Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet Tuesday with Secretary of State John Kerry in the Black Sea resort of Sochi. This is Kerry's first visit to Russia since the Ukraine crisis began.

SYLHET, Bangladesh (AP) — Police in northern Bangladesh say masked men have hacked a blogger to death. The attack happened Tuesday while Ananta Bijoy Das was on his way to his job at a bank. Police aren't sure why Das was targeted, but local media say he was close to Bangladeshi-American blogger Avijit Roy, who was killed in an attack in February. Roy was known for his writings against religious fundamentalism.
