PARK RIDGE, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois state senator wants to add churches to the list of places where concealed guns wouldn't be allowed.
Park Ridge Democrat Dan Kotowski says he doesn't agree with a provision in the state's new concealed-carry law that allows guns in churches, temples or mosques. He filed an amendment to the law Monday and says he'll push for its approval.
Illinois was the last state in the nation to approve concealed-carry legislation this month.
Kotowski is a former gun control lobbyist.
He's one of a number of lawmakers seeking changes to the gun bill, although lawmakers voted to override changes that Gov. Pat Quinn proposed last week to meet a federal court deadline.
Several other states, including Nebraska, South Carolina and North Dakota, prohibit carrying concealed guns in churches.
A search is underway for three suspects after they crashed a stolen vehicle into a north County house.
Police say the suspects were driving a stolen Cadillac sedan when they crashed into a Spanish Lake home around 9:30 this morning. The suspects ran from the scene, but police believe they know their identities. K-9 units were called in to help with the search. No one was injured in the house.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Police say actor Cory Monteith, star of the hit TV show "Glee," has been found dead in a Vancouver hotel.
The 31-year-old Monteith, who played the character Finn Hudson on the TV series about a high school glee club, was found dead in his room on the 21st floor of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel on Vancouver's waterfront at about noon Saturday.
Deputy Police Chief Doug Lepard says there is no indication of foul play. Monteith's body was found by hotel staff after he missed his check-out time, Lepard said.
"We do not have a great deal of information as to cause of death," Coroner Lisa Lapointe said.
Lepard said Monteith had been out with people earlier and that those people are being interviewed.
Monteith had voluntarily entered rehab for substance abuse problems in April.
