El hombre que mató a una persona e hirió a otra en un tiroteo en autobús en Las Vegas el sábado realizó el ataque "sin una razón aparente" mientras los pasajeros descendían del vehículo en una parada en el corazón de un corredor turístico, indicó la policía el domingo.
El autobús se había detenido en The Strip cerca del hotel y casino Cosmopolitan, y los pasajeros descendían cuando Cárdenas, sentado en la parte posterior del vehículo, se puso de pie y realizó varios disparos con una pistola, reportaron las autoridades.
Otra persona recibió un disparo en el abdomen y fue hospitalizada, pero se espera que sobreviva.
Los visitantes también se ocultaban dentro de otras famosas propiedades afectadas, entre ellas el Bellagio, Paris, Planet Hollywood y Bally's, que además de hoteles y casinos cuentan con restaurantes, tiendas y atracciones.
Authorities in central Iowa say Chicago Bears cornerback Deiondre Hall and Green Bay Packers cornerback Makinton Dorleant were arrested outside a bar in Cedar Falls.
According to a police affidavit, Hall did not respond to police instructions and spit in the officers' faces.
Rockets y Harden ganan el duelo ante OKC y Westbrook
HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden fue el cuarto mejor anotador de los Rockets el domingo contra el Thunder de Oklahoma City.
Sin embargo, fue claro para todo el mundo que el base fue el jugador fundamental en la victoria de Houston.
Lou Williams salió de la banca para anotar 31 puntos, Harden sumó 22 puntos con 12 asistencias y los Rockets dominaron de principio a fin para derrotar 137-125 al Thunder.
Pero Harden guió a los Rockets a una ventaja de 25 puntos tras el tercer cuarto en el partido que enfrentó a los dos principales candidatos al Jugador Más Valioso de la liga.
"Se encienden y con un equipo como ese, cuando están así, te metes en problemas":
Trevor Ariza y Eric Gordon aportaron 24 puntos cada uno por los Rockets, cuya diferencia se achicó cuando Westbrook embocó un triple con 90 segundos en el reloj.
Los Rockets respondieron con una ráfaga de cuatro puntos para sellar la victoria.
Thousands of people began evacuating low-lying areas of Australia's tropical northeast on Monday as a powerful cyclone bore down on the coast.
Cyclone Debbie was expected to cross the Queensland state coast along a sparsely populated 100-kilometer (60-mile) stretch between the towns of Ayr and Bowen early Tuesday, Australian Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Michael Paech said.
The cyclone was churning over the Pacific Ocean as a Category 3 storm on Monday, with wind gusts up to 165 kilometers per hour (100 mph).
Yet Zhao's brother is now questioning the verdict, saying the ex-official was abused in police custody and sentenced in a show trial — raising issues of justice that are rarely aired in politically sensitive, often tightly scripted cases.
China's highest court, the Supreme People's Court, is now reviewing his death sentence, as it does for all capital punishment cases.
Zhao's brother has written a detailed letter appealing for a fair trial and submitted it to the court through its "letters and petitions" department, the office that is designated to hear citizens' complaints.
The court also said Zhao, who rose through the ranks of the police in the sparsely populated but resource-rich region over a three-decade career, used his leadership position from 2008 to 2010 to "seek benefits" when promoting people and taking 24 million yuan ($3.5 million) in bribes.
The Supreme People's Court, the two courts in Shanxi province where the case was tried, and police and prosecutors in Chifeng, where Zhao was interrogated, did not respond to repeated requests for comment sent by fax and phone.
In recent months, Chinese activists have been drawing attention to the plight of a rights lawyer, Xie Yang, who told his attorneys that he had been subjected to sleep deprivation, punched, kicked and otherwise tortured during interrogations.
Interrogators find it easy to sidestep government requirements aimed at curbing abuse because the police, prosecutors and judiciary are ultimately controlled by the Communist Party.
 while the torture of ordinary people in police custody might trigger an outcry, there is little public sympathy for officials subjected to the same practices, part of a widespread perception that officials enjoy better treatment by police than ordinary suspects.
