FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Evidence obtained by The Associated Press finds that four of the nine people killed in a melee between biker gangs in Waco, Texas, last May were hit with bullets from the type of rifle used by police. The .223-caliber rifles were the only type of weapon fired by police that day; it's not clear whether any of the bikers had identical rifles.

NEW YORK (AP) — About a dozen protesters have disrupted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's speech at a $1,000-a-plate luncheon in New York. Four protesters chanting "Trump is trying to bring us down, targeting people black and brown," tried to storm a side entrance into the speech at Manhattan's The Plaza Hotel. Security staff forcibly ejected some of them. They objected to Trump's call for banning Muslims from entering the U.S.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Citadel President John Rosa says he has no intention of stepping down.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Dive teams have searched again at a small lake in a San Bernardino, California, park for evidence related to the massacre that killed 14 people last week. At times, the divers picked up items from the lake and threw them back in after inspecting them. They didn't appear to keep anything they pulled out. The FBI says the shooters had been in the area the day of the attack.
