FOX LAKE, Ill. (AP) — Helicopters are helping in the search for three men wanted in the shooting death of a northern Illinois police officer. Fox Lake Police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz (GLIHN'-uh-wihtz) told dispatchers he was chasing three men on foot Tuesday morning. That's the last he was heard from. Backup officers found him shot.

BALTIMORE (AP) — A court hearing in the death of Freddie Gray will be held today in Baltimore. Prosecutors and defense attorneys for the six city police officers criminally charged will present arguments on three issues — whether State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby should recuse herself, whether the officers should be tried together or separately, and whether the charges should be dismissed. Gray died a week after suffering a critical spinal injury while in custody. Protesters are expected to gather outside the courthouse today.

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Migrants, mostly from Syria, continue to arrive outside the main international train station in Budapest, Hungary. And some are protesting as police block them for a second day from boarding the trains to seek asylum in Germany and other wealthy countries in the European Union. Meanwhile, the Greek coast guard says it's rescued more than 1,000 migrants in the Aegean Sea over the past 24 hours.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Attorneys in Louisiana will ask federal appeals court today to block the release of longtime state inmate Albert Woodfox and allow prosecutors to try him a third time in the 1972 death of a prison guard. Woodfox is the last member of the group dubbed the "Angola Three" who's still behind bars. A judge ordered Woodfox's "immediate" release in June and barred a third trial for the 68-year-old.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina officials will hold a hearing today on compensation for two brothers who were wrongfully imprisoned for three decades in the killing of an 11-year-old girl. Henry McCollum and Leon Brown were pardoned in June, and they're qualified to each receive $750,000 from the state. The hearing is one of several steps that are largely considered formalities before the money can be paid.
