A former University of Cincinnati police officer charged with murder in the shooting death of an unarmed black man he had stopped for a missing license plate was released from jail on bond hours after an initial court appearance on Thursday.

Two incidents on separate airplanes at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport led to evacuations on Thursday, with three people suffering minor injuries on one flight, airport officials said.
