WASHINGTON (AP) — Police have identified a suspect in the slayings of three members of a Washington, D.C. family and their housekeeper inside their mansion. Police say 34-year-old Daron Dylon Wint is still at large. Last week, firefighters responded to a house fire at the home of 46-year-old Savvas Savopoulos. Inside, they found his body as well as the bodies of his wife, 10-year-old son and a maid. Voicemails and text messages to household staff suggest that something was amiss at the home for many hours before the bodies were found.

WACO, Texas (AP) — Restaurant security video shows only one of dozens of bikers firing a gun during Sunday's violent clash between motorcycle gangs at a Waco, Texas restaurant.

The video shows bikers on the restaurant patio ducking under tables and trying to get inside. At least three people were holding handguns. Police have confiscated hundreds of weapons.

BOSTON (AP) — A month after former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez was convicted of the 2013 murder of a semi-pro football player, he'll be back in court Thursday to face a charge of trying to silence a witness in a double killing. Prosecutors say Hernandez shot a man in the face after the man made a remark about a 2012 doubling slaying. In that case, Hernandez is accused of gunning down two men after a drink was accidentally spilling on him in a club.

NEW YORK (AP) — A woman who admitted to shoving a man off a New York City subway platform to his death has been sentenced to 24 years in prison. Erika Menendez was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to manslaughter for killing Sunando Sen in December 2012 in Queens. Prosecutors say Menendez walked up to Sen from behind and shoved him onto the tracks before he was struck and killed by a train. Menendez told police she has hated Muslims and Hindus since Nine-Eleven. Sen was Hindu.
