BALTIMORE (AP) — All six Baltimore police officers charged in a suspect-custody death have been indicted by a grand jury. The charges announced by State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby were similar to those she announced about three weeks ago. Mosby has said that Freddie Gray's neck was broken because he was injured while being handcuffed, shackled and placed head-first into a police van. She says his pleas for medical attention were repeatedly ignored. Gray died a week after his arrest.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A manhunt is underway in New York City for a welder suspected in the slayings of four people in a Washington, D.C. mansion that was set ablaze last week.

Authorities in Washington say Wint has been spotted in Brooklyn.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon says a shipment of 2,000 lightweight anti-armor weapons should arrive in Iraq as soon as next week.

WASHINGTON (AP) — More than a dozen Democrats have joined Republicans in the Senate voting to advance trade legislation being pushed by President Barack Obama. Passage was in doubt. The president was up late last night placing calls to lawmakers. The White House says the trade deal would "open up access to markets that too often are closed." Critics say it will hurt American workers.

NEW YORK (AP) — Hundreds of protesters have turned out in suburban Chicago for the annual McDonald's shareholders meeting. They're demanding the right to unionize and pay of $15 an hour. McDonald's CEO Steve Easterbrook said he was "incredibly proud" of a decision to bump pay for some workers. Critics say the increase doesn't go to the vast majority of the more than 14,000 workers because they are paid by franchisers.
