Police: Officer shot boy in wrist at Hawaii school

Tuesday, 28 January 2014 14:45 Published in National News
HONOLULU (AP) - Authorities say a police officer shot a 17-year-old runaway in the wrist at a Hawaiii high school after the teen cut one officer with a knife and punched two others.
 
State Department of education spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz says Roosevelt High School officials recognized the boy as a runaway and called police after he showed up at the school Tuesday morning.
 
Maj. Richard Robinson, commander of the Criminal Investigations Department for Honolulu police, says the boy lunged at officers who arrived and tried to take him into custody.
 
Robinson says the teen attacked one of the officers with a knife, leaving his torso with a minor cut.
 
One of the officers then fired two shots, hitting the boy once in the wrist. He was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
 
The public high school near downtown Honolulu was placed on locked, but students have since been released.

Missouri Senator proposes new rules for executions

Tuesday, 28 January 2014 13:48 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - As Missouri prepares to execute its third inmate in three months, a state senator wants to change the state's execution process.
 
Senate Democratic Leader Jolie Justus introduced legislation Tuesday that would create an 11-member commission responsible for setting the state's execution procedure. She says ongoing lawsuits and secrecy about the state's current lethal injection method should drive a change in protocol.
 
Missouri had used a three-drug cocktail for executions, but it threw out the process after it could no longer obtain the drugs. The state ultimately switched to a form of pentobarbital made by a compounding pharmacy, though it refuses to reveal its origins.
 
Missouri is scheduled to execute Herbert Smullsat 12:01 a.m. Wednesday. Smulls was convicted of killing a St. Louis County jeweler in 1991.
