FOX LAKE, Ill. (AP) — Authorities have widened the search for three suspects wanted in the fatal shooting of a popular Illinois police officer. All they know about the suspects is that two are white and one is black. Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz (GLIHN'-uh-wihts) gave that description moments before he was shot. A 14-hour "grid search" in the village of Fox Lake failed to turn up anything.

He says it was an accident.
