ST. LOUIS (AP) - Hundreds gather in St. Louis to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s fight for equality, even as disparities still exist.
 
King's life was celebrated Monday at the Old Courthouse in downtown St. Louis, the same building where slaves waged a legal battle for freedom more than 160 years ago.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that speakers cited progress, but said disparities in education, jobs and poverty based on race still remain.
 
The crowd in the rotunda at the historic building was among the largest in several years, spilling out onto Market Street. After hearing speeches, the crowd marched through downtown to an interfaith service at Powell Hall.

Lawyer: Boy jailed in Philly shooting not to blame

Sunday, 19 January 2014 10:33 Published in National News

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The attorney for a 17-year-old boy charged with shooting two students inside a Philadelphia school gym says his client isn't responsible.

Police have said they charged Raisheem Rochwell based on surveillance video and witness information from the shooting Friday afternoon at Delaware Valley Charter High School. Police say one bullet from a gun Rochwell was holding hit two students, wounding each in an arm.

But Rochwell's attorney, Amato Sanita, says he doesn't believe that account is accurate and says Rochwell "is not the person who will ultimately be responsible for this act."

The teen has been charged as an adult and remained jailed Sunday unable to post $500,000 bond. He faces a preliminary hearing Feb. 6.

The school will resume classes Tuesday, after the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
