gunman kills seven before he is shot dead

A northeast Ohio man went on a neighborhood shooting rampage, killing seven before being shot and killed in a gunfight with a police officer and a former officer, authorities said Sunday. Copley police said the man, who had not been identified, was in one house with several others Sunday morning when he shot his girlfriend, then ran to a neighboring home and shot her brother and four other people. Investigators said he then chased two bystanders through back yards, shooting one, before entering another house and shooting one person there. He was killed after he left the home. Police said seven of the man's victims died and one was taken to a hospital. None had been identified.

ISRAEL

Officials vow to cut cost of living

Israel on Sunday formed a panel of government ministers and some of the country's leading economic experts to draw up a plan to reduce the soaring cost of living, marking a new effort to defuse demonstrations over prices that drew over a quarter-million people onto the streets the night before. The announcement comes after three weeks of mushrooming protests sparked by complaints over housing costs. Since then, the protests have gained new momentum as Israelis grow increasingly frustrated with their struggle to make ends meet despite economic growth in the country that is outpacing that of other developed nations.

  3. FBI: Florida man sympathized with IS, wanted to bomb mall

    Courts

    MIAMI (AP) — A Florida man who described himself as a sympathizer of the Islamic State extremist group faces terrorism-related charges stemming from a purported plot to bomb a Miami-area shopping mall, according to court documents filed Monday.

    An undated file image posted on an extremist website on Jan. 14, 2014, shows fighters from the Islamic State group marching in Raqqa, Syria. The group champions a hyper-religious lifestyle grounded in a self-proclaimed caliphate, but most recruits have a superficial understanding of religion and are largely ignorant in the laws of Islam.
