Attorney General Loretta Lynch accompanied by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake speaks during a work meeting at Baltimore City Hall in BaltimoreBaltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake asked the U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday to investigate the city's police department for civil rights violations after the death of a black man from injuries sustained in police custody. The investigation will look into police practices such as frisks, street stops of suspects and arrests to see if they violate the U.S. Constitution, Rawlings-Blake said at a news conference. The request follows the April 19 death of Freddie Gray, 25, who sustained spinal injuries after being arrested. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan lifted a state of emergency for Baltimore on Wednesday.

By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - A series of tornadoes, including a major twister, touched down southwest of Oklahoma City on Wednesday, injuring several residents of a trailer park, causing severe flooding and the escape of bears from a wildlife park, officials said. No deaths were reported, but some residents of a south Oklahoma City trailer park were injured during the storm and treated at local hospitals, said Dee Patty, a police spokeswoman. Bears briefly escaped from enclosures at an animal park after a tornado struck the city of Tuttle, about 30 miles (48 km) southwest of Oklahoma City, the Grady County Sheriff's Office said. A storm system brought severe weather to several Great Plains states, and the National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for an area stretching from central Texas to central Nebraska.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo speaks to the media in Havana(Reuters) - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday he would create a so-called Wage Board, a move apparently designed to allow him to raise the minimum wage without the approval of state lawmakers. Cuomo in his January budget recommended raising the minimum wage to $11.50 an hour in New York City and $10.50 elsewhere in the state, only to see that proposal rejected by the state legislature. "On Thursday, I am directing the commissioner to impanel such a board, to examine the minimum wage in the fast-food industry," Cuomo said in the editorial. "The board will return in about three months with its recommendations, which do not require legislative approval." Cuomo said the Wage Board could "set fast-food workers on a path out of poverty" as well as ease the financial burden on taxpayers and create a new national standard.

Simpson was one of the two gunmen who was shot and killed by authorities outside a suburban Dallas venue Sunday, which was hosting a contest for Muslim Prophet Muhammad cartoons. The gunmen, whom federal officials identified as Simpson and Nadir Soofi, wounded a security officer before they were shot and killed at the scene. (Les Stukenberg/The Daily Courier via AP) MANDATORY CREDITNEW YORK (AP) — The attempted attack on a provocative cartoon contest in Texas appears to reflect a scenario that has long troubled national security officials: a do-it-yourself terror plot, inspired by the Islamic State extremist group and facilitated through the ease of social media.
