MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin's governor says the state's National Guard won't be deployed in Milwaukee unless the city's police chief decides to do so. One person was shot and wounded on the second night of protests, following Saturday afternoon's fatal police shooting of a black man. Six businesses were burned Saturday night in rioting. Police say the man shot by police was holding a gun when he turned toward an officer.

LOWER LAKE, Calif. (AP) — Some 4,000 people have fled a wildfire that's destroyed at least 10 homes in two Northern California towns. The blaze jumped a road Sunday and moved into populated areas, burning a post office, a winery and several other businesses in Lower Lake. Some patients at a hospital in nearby Clearlake were transferred to another hospital 25 miles away.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Forecasters say there's still a danger of more flooding across southern Louisiana as swollen rivers drain toward the Gulf of Mexico. On Sunday, residents scrambled to get to safety as rivers and creeks burst their banks, swollen from days of heavy rain. Emergency crews had to rescue some using vehicles, boats and helicopters. And more than 10,000 people are in shelters.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — A South African sprinter at the Olympic Games in Rio has broken Michael Johnson's 17-year-old world record in the 400-meter final. Wayde van Niekerk finished in 43.03 seconds — 0.15 seconds faster than Johnson ran on Aug. 26, 1999, in Seville, Spain. Johnson's mark was considered one of the almost untouchable records in track.

BENSALEM, Pa. (AP) — Two women are facing charges in Pennsylvania after police say they left an infant in the backseat of a car that reached 115 degrees while they shopped at a suburban Philadelphia Target store. Authorities say an off-duty Philadelphia police officer spotted the baby Sunday afternoon in Bensalem and managed to pry the door open. The women, who are the child's aunt and grandmother, told police they had forgotten the baby. Authorities say the child appears to be in good condition.
