Two Dead In School Shooting
MARYSVILLE, Wash. (AP) - More details are emerging about a Washington state student who officials say killed one classmate, wounded four others and then took his own. Officials say two of the victims were the cousins of Marysville-Pilchuck freshman Jaylen Fryberg. Marysville is about 30 miles north of Seattle. Students said the Fryberg was staring at his victims as he shot them inside the cafeteria. Three of the victims had head wounds and are in critical condition. Another victim is in serious condition. Students and parents said Fryberg was a member of a prominent family from the nearby Tulalip Indian tribes and a freshman who played on the high school football team. He was introduced at a football game as a prince in the 2014 Homecoming court, according to a video shot by a parent. A motive is unclear, but one student says Fryberg had recently gotten into a fight with another boy over a girl.
Nurse Who Overcame Ebola Is Home
BETHESDA, Md. (AP) - A nurse who became ill with Ebola has returned home virus-free to Texas. Nina Pham arrived just before midnight CDT Friday at a Fort Worth airport after being released from the National Institutes of Health's Clinical Center near Washington. She was exposed to the deadly virus while caring for Thomas Eric Duncan, who died Oct. 8 at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. Earlier Friday, Pham said she felt "fortunate and blessed" during a news conference at the Washington-area hospital. She later received a hug and thanks from President Barack Obama during a visit to the White House. Pham said she looked forward to being reunited with her dog Bentley. A second nurse from Dallas, Amber Vinson, remains at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
New York Doctor Has Ebola
NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the New York doctor who has tested positive for Ebola sought help with a 100.3-degree fever, not a higher temperature.
In appearance on CNN, the governor said Spencer "presented himself" to the hospital when he had a 100-point-3 fever ... not 103 ... as has been reported." He repeated the comment on another morning program.
Cuomo says Dr. Craig Spencer acted responsibly, even though he rode the subway, bowled and rode a cab. The governor said the doctor obviously felt he wasn't symptomatic" when he went out "in a limited way."
Spencer recently returned to the city after treating Ebola patients in West Africa.
As a doctor, Cuomo said Spencer knew you're not contagious until you're symptomatic.
Spencer tested positive for the virus on Thursday. He is the first case in the city.
Attack On NYC Police
NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police Commissioner William Bratton says the hatchet attack on four rookie officers was a terrorist act by a homegrown radical. Bratton said Friday the suspect, Zale Thompson, was a Muslim convert who ranted online against America, but had no clear ties to international terrorism. He believes Thompson was self-radicalized. Thompson was killed by police. One officer is hospitalized with a head wound. Bratton says investigators are trying to determine whether the attack was planned. Police are examining Thompson's computer for clues. Bratton says investigators found that Thompson browsed for organized terror groups, as well as beheadings and the shooting in Canada earlier this week. Authorities also are trying to determine if Thompson had any history of mental illness. But Bratton says he is comfortable calling it a "terrorist attack."
