      A jury has convicted a man of first-degree murder in the 2016 slayings of six members of a Chicago family who were slaughtered in their home. Wednesday's verdict means that 28-year-old Diego Uribe Cruz will be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Evidence included DNA under his aunt's fingernails that prosecutors said belonged to Uribe Cruz.

      Chicago police say an officer shot an armed man who was making anti-police statements inside a police station. Superintendent David Brown says the shooting happened Wednesday afternoon at the Ogden District station. He says the man holding what appeared to be a gun wrapped in a plastic bag entered the station and made negative comments about police. Officers ordered him to drop the weapon but he refused and pointed it at them. Then officers opened fire, shooting him once in the shoulder. He is expected to survive. Last week, an officer shot a man who climbed a fire escape to enter another Chicago police station and pointed a gun at officers.

      Authorities say an Ohio woman accused of striking two northeastern Indiana boys with her SUV, fatally injuring one of them, allegedly fled the scene and tried to conceal her involvement in the weekend accident.

The Herald Republican of Angola reports that she was charged in Saturday night’s accident along a Steuben County road that killed 13-year-old Wayden Bennett, 13, of Angola, and left 12-year-old Ryly Cumings, 12, of Angola, with a head laceration.
