Delaware state trooper shot:

  • A Delaware state trooper was shot and killed outside a convenience store on Wednesday. The trooper, Cpl. Stephen J. Ballard, was shot multiple times as he approached a vehicle in a convenience store parking lot. One of the suspects ran while the other was arrested on the spot. The gunman barricaded himself in his house 15 miles away for hours. This morning, he exited the home, and after engaging police, he was shot and killed just before 9:30am.

Flynn warned about foreign government payments:

  • Documents released Thursday reveal that former national security advisor, Michael Flynn, was warned by authorities not to accept foreign government-sourced money without “advance approval” by the Pentagon when he retired from the military in 2014. Flynn was later paid tens of thousands of dollars for work of foreign interests. Investigations are now taking place to determine whether Flynn properly informed military authorities about the payments.

UK man arrested on suspicion of terrorism:

  • On Thursday, police performing a counterterrorism operation arrested a man carrying knives in a bag near Britain’s Parliament. The 27-year-old man was accused of planning terrorist acts. No one was injured during the incident, which took place where an attack killed five people last month.
