Gunman in Mohammad cartoon attack in Texas monitored for years

Police officers block an intersection after a shooting outside the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, TexasBy Jon Herskovitz and David Schwartz GARLAND, Texas/PHOENIX (Reuters) - Federal agents for years monitored one of the two gunmen who were shot dead after opening fire with assault rifles at a heavily guarded Texas exhibit of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad. Two government sources who asked not to be named said the shooters were roommates Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, of Phoenix. Court documents show that Simpson had been under surveillance since 2006 and was convicted in 2011 of lying to FBI agents over his desire to join violent jihad in Somalia. FBI agents and police searched the two men's home at the Autumn Ridge Apartments in north-central Phoenix, cordoning off the complex and evacuating residents for several hours in the early morning.

Baltimore police say man's gun discharged during arrest, no injuries

Baltimore police officers load a man into an ambulance at the scene of a shooting incident at the corner of West North Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue in West BaltimoreBaltimore police denied a media report on Monday they had shot a black man while trying to take him into custody, saying the man's firearm went off accidentally while officers were arresting him and that no one was injured. The incident, which followed weeks of protests over the death last month of a 25-year-old black man in police custody, drew a crowd of about 100 protesters to a corner that was the site of a riot a week ago. A senior Baltimore police officer on the scene told reporters that the man had been put into an ambulance as a precautionary measure. "Nowhere on his body does he have a gunshot wound." Fox News, which had reported that the man had been shot while he was fleeing authorities, apologized for what it said was an inaccurate report.
