TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) - A pregnant Texas actress who told FBI agents that her husband had sent ricin-tainted letters to President Barack Obama and New York City's mayor has been charged with threatening the president.
Shannon Guess Richardson was charged Friday in Texarkana, Texas. She faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of mailing a threatening communication to the president.
U.S. attorney's office spokeswoman Davilyn Walston says Richardson was arrested earlier in the day for mailing ricin-laced letters last month to President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
It wasn't immediately clear if she has an attorney.
FBI agents wearing hazardous material suits were seen going in and out of Richardson's house on Wednesday in New Boston, about 150 miles northeast of Dallas near the Oklahoma and Arkansas.
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - Two people were found dead in a burned home near Santa Monica College, where someone sprayed a street corner with gunfire just before noon, wounding at least four people.
The Los Angeles-area campus is about 3 miles from where President Barack Obama was attending a fundraising luncheon, just before noon.
Police said a shooter was in custody and the campus was being searched after unconfirmed reports that there was a second shooter.
A man dressed in black, with the words "Life is a Gamble" on the back of his sweatshirt, was seen being taken into custody by law enforcement officers.
Four shooting victims were admitted to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. A hospital spokesman says two were in critical condition, one was in serious condition, and one was in good condition.
U.S. employers added 175,000 jobs in May, steady hiring but below the more robust pace that took place during the fall and winter.
The Labor Department says the unemployment rate rose to 7.6 percent from 7.5 percent in April. The increase occurred because more people began looking for work, a good sign.
The government said the economy added 12,000 fewer jobs in April and March.
Employers have added an average of 155,000 jobs in past three months, below the average of 237,000 created from November through February.
The modest gains likely mean the Federal Reserve will continue its bond purchases. The Fed has said it will maintain its pace of bond purchases until the job market improves substantially. The purchases have helped drive down interest rates and boost stock prices.
