MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he would like to see the police bodycam video of the shooting of a black man in Milwaukee released soon, as long as making it public would not impede an ongoing investigation. Walker told WISN TV Sunday that transparency could help calm the situation. He says it's important for the public to know that an independent investigation is being conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

NEW YORK (AP) — Port Authority police say they have not found any firearms, rounds of ammunition, shell casings or other evidence of gunfire at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City.

TOKYO (AP) — Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (shin-zoh ah-bay) is staying away from a Tokyo shrine that honors convicted war criminals among the war dead, apparently not to spark controversy from neighboring countries as Japan marks the 71st anniversary of the end of World War II. Abe's last visit in 2012 drew sharp rebukes from China and South Korea. They see Yasukuni as a symbol of Japan's wartime militarism. Abe will attend a state memorial ceremony Monday.
