The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services filed an appeal Wednesday night shortly after U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan ruled in favor of the teenager.

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a police report of a gun being fired in a dorm room and the sale of drugs brought Texas Tech officers to the room before they arrested a student accused of later killing one of the officers.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Despite the president's claim that he contacts all families of the fallen, interviews with relatives do not support his claim.
