ST. LOUIS (AP) — Transportation officials in Missouri are preparing for the possible closure of a major interstate highway south of St. Louis because of flooding. The Department of Transportation says I-55 at the Meramec (MEHR'-uh-mehk) River near Arnold could close overnight or Thursday. Other connections between St. Louis and Jefferson counties already are closed, including I-44 over the river.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico (AP) — A Mexican immigration official says teenage fugitive Ethan Couch is being moved from Guadalajara to larger immigration facilities in Mexico City.

Couch used "affluenza" as a defense in a fatal drunken-driving wreck in Texas 2013 and is on probation.

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) —A federal grand jury is indicting a friend of one of the shooters in the San Bernardino massacre. The charges against 24-year-old Enrique Marquez include conspiring with Syed Farook in a pair of previous planned attacks and making false statements when he bought the guns later used in this month's shootings. Marquez has not entered a plea.

CHICAGO (AP) — Mayor Rahm Emanuel says every Chicago police patrol car will soon be equipped with a Taser.

There have been other high-profile shootings by officers recently.

TORONTO (AP) — Emergency officials say an Air Canada flight en route from Shanghai to Toronto was diverted to Calgary today because heavy turbulence injured 21 passengers, including three children. A spokesman says those taken to area hospitals were in stable condition with non-life threatening neck and back injuries. The Boeing 777 was carrying 351 passengers and crew.
