OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A jury has convicted a former Oklahoma City police officer of 18 of the 36 charges he faced related to allegations that he assaulted or victimized 13 women in the low-income neighborhood he patrolled. Among the charges 29-year-old Daniel Holtzclaw was found guilty of were four counts of first-degree rape. Jurors recommended a 30-year sentence on each of those counts.

MARKSVILLE, La. (AP) — A police officer who witnessed two city marshals open fire on a 6-year-old autistic boy and his father says he didn't fire his own weapon because "he didn't fear for his life." The statement was disclosed in documents released by the Louisiana attorney general's office following the indictment on murder charges of Norris Greenhouse Jr. and Derrick Stafford.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The investigation into the shootings in California that left 14 dead last week is continuing. An FBI dive team has been searching a small lake about 3 miles from the shooting site in San Bernardino. But the chief of the FBI's Los Angeles office isn't saying what they're looking for. David Bowdich does say, however, that leads indicate the shooters were in the area the day of the massacre.

JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — A lockdown at Arkansas State University has been lifted and school officials say campus activities will resume Friday after the arrest of an armed man. Brad Bartelt, who police say had a shotgun and containers of gasoline and propane with him as he drove his truck onto campus today, was taken into custody without any shots fired. Police say he'd posted on Facebook that he was homicidal.

SEATTLE (AP) —Heavy rains inundating the Pacific Northwest this week are easing a bit. But forecasters say mudslide danger on the saturated hills will remain high through the weekend.

Thousands of motorists were stranded for hours.
