Need To Know.
Toronto Mass Shooting.
One person was killed and 13 others injured when a man opened fire at a busy intersection in Toronto's Greektown neighborhood last night. Officials have not yet identified the suspect, though the shooter was also killed by police at the scene. The shooter's motive is so far unknown and police have not ruled out the possibility of a terrorist attack. An eight-year-old girl was among the victims and was listed in critical condition. Overall gun violence in Canada is relatively rare, though total shootings in Toronto have doubled from 177 in 2014 to 395 in 2017 (see data), and yesterday's shooting follows a deadly terrorist attack that killed ten pedestrians when a van intentionally drove down a crowded sidewalk in April. 

NFL Pauses Protest Policy.
The NFL and the league's Players Association released a joint statement over the weekend effectively pausing new rules regarding player behavior during the national anthem. In an attempt to address the controversy around player protests that has befuddled owners over the past two seasons, the NFL announced in May it would require players to "show respect" - or remain in the locker room - during the playing of the anthem. However, the NFL will fine the teams - not the players - and will leave it up to the individual teams on how to dole out punishments and/or potential fines. The statement was released on the same day reports leaked indicating that the Miami Dolphins planned to add on-the-field anthem protests to its list of conduct detrimental to the team - placing it on par with drug use and gambling, with a potential four-game suspension. Teams were previously required to submit plans to deal with player protests before training camps, which begin this week for most teams. 

Trader Joe's Standoff.
Police arrested a southern California man after a car chase that ended in a shootout at a Los Angeles area Trader Joe’s yesterday that left one person dead. The suspect, 28-year-old Gene Atkins, allegedly shot his grandmother after a heated argument at her home and took another woman hostage before leading police on a car chase in his grandmother’s Toyota Camry (the grandmother is in stable condition after surgery). The chase ended when Atkins crashed into a pole outside the store, after which Atkins ran in the store and trapped dozens of customers and employees. One woman was killed by crossfire as she attempted to flee the store – it was unclear whether the bullet came from Atkins or the police. Atkins surrendered after a three-hour standoff.
