- Suspect in killing of deputies was twice deported
San Francisco Chronicle, Sunday - 10/26/2014 - 03:27 AM
A man suspected of killing two deputies during a shooting rampage in Northern California was deported twice to Mexico and had a drug conviction, federal authorities said.  his fingerprints match the biometric records of a Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte in a federal database, U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Virginia Kice said. Investigators spent Saturday at the multiple crime scenes "trying to kind of sort through the chaos so we can methodically rebuild this," Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner said. The two suspects were questioned for hours as authorities sought a motive for the shootings that began when Sacramento County sheriff's Deputy Danny Oliver, 47, was shot in the forehead with an assault rifle at close range as he checked out a suspicious car in a motel parking lot. Two deputies who approached the pickup while it was parked alongside a road were shot with an AR-15-type assault weapon and never had a chance to return fire, Placer County sheriff's spokeswoman Dena Erwin said. Several dozen law enforcement vehicles, with lights silently flashing, escorted a hearse carrying Michael Davis' flag-draped casket to a funeral home as bystanders and law enforcement officials hugged, saluted and wiped away tears. Davis' wife works as an evidence technician for the department and his brother is a sergeant.

- Tokyo university loses record 86th straight game
Daily Oklahoman, Sunday - 10/26/2014 - 02:36 AM
A Japanese university baseball team extended its own record of futility on Sunday, losing its 86th straight game while finishing a fourth consecutive year winless. The University of Tokyo was beaten 5-0 by Hosei University at Tokyo's Jingu Stadium to prolong a losing streak that dates back to October of 2010. The result means that players who started playing for the team in 2011 will graduate without ever having experienced a single win. The University of Tokyo, or Todai as it is more commonly known, is Japan's premier university and produces many of the country's top politicians, lawyers and doctors. But unlike rivals in the Tokyo Big 6 Baseball League, Todai does not offer sports scholarships or scout high school players.
