A grand jury will consider whether to bring charges against a man who drove into a crowd demonstrating in Austin against police violence last July and shot and killed an armed protester, prosecutors said Friday. Travis County District Attorney José Garza announced the move in a statement without identifying the man who shot Garrett Foster, 28. The man's attorneys have identified him as Army Sgt. Daniel Perry, a Fort Hood soldier, whom they say was working for a ride-share company and acted in self-defense after Foster pointed a gun at him.

INDIANAPOLIS — The former employee who shot and killed eight people at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis was interviewed by FBI agents last year, after his mother called police to say that her son might commit “suicide by cop,” the bureau said Friday. Coroners began the slow process of identifying the victims as family members spent hours agonizing over word of their loved ones. The slayings Thursday night marked the latest in a string of recent mass shootings to rock the U.S. The shooter was identified as Brandon Scott Hole of Indianapolis, Deputy Police Chief Craig McCartt told a news conference. Investigators searched a home in Indianapolis associated with Hole and seized evidence, including desktop computers and other electronic media, McCartt said. The home is located in a neighbourhood of midcentury houses near Interstate 465. Hole began firing randomly at people in the parking lot of the FedEx facility late Thursday, killing four, before entering the building, fatally shooting four more people and then turning the gun on himself, McCartt said. He said the shooter apparently killed himself shortly before police entered the building. He said he did not know if Hole owned the gun legally. “There was no confrontation with anyone that was there,” he said. “There was no disturbance, there was no argument. He just appeared to randomly start shooting.” McCartt said the slayings took place in a matter of minutes, and that there were at least 100 people in the facility at the time. Many were changing shifts or were on their dinner break, he said. Several people were wounded, including five who were taken to the hospital. A FedEx employee said he was working inside the building Thursday night when he heard several gunshots in rapid succession. “I see a man come out with a rifle in his hand and he starts firing and he starts yelling stuff that I could not understand,” Levi Miller told WTHR-TV. “What I ended up doing was ducking down to make sure he did not see me because I thought he would see me and he would shoot me.” Paul Keenan, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Indianapolis field office, said Friday that agents questioned Hole last year after his mother called police to say that her son might commit “suicide by cop.” He said the FBI was called after items were found in Hole’s bedroom but he did not elaborate on what they were. He said agents found no evidence of a crime and that they did not identify Hole as espousing a racially motivated ideology. A police report obtained by The Associated Press shows that officers seized a pump-action shotgun from Hole’s home after responding to the mother's call. Keenan said the gun was never returned. McCartt said Hole was a former employee of FedEx and last worked for the company in 2020. The deputy police chief said he did not know why Hole left the job or if he had ties to the workers in the facility. He said police have not yet uncovered a motive for the shooting. Police Chief Randal Taylor noted that a “significant” number of employees at the FedEx facility are members of the Sikh community, and the Sikh Coalition later issued a statement saying it was “sad to confirm” that at least four of those killed were community members. The coalition, which identifies itself as the largest Sikh civil rights organization in the U.S., said in the statement that it expected authorities to “conduct a full investigation — including the possibility of bias as a factor.” The agonizing wait by the workers' families was exacerbated by the fact that most employees aren’t allowed to carry cellphones inside the FedEx building, making contact with them difficult. “When you see notifications on your phone, but you’re not getting a text back from your kid and you’re not getting information and you still don’t know where they are … what are you supposed to do?” Mindy Carson said early Friday, fighting back tears. Carson later said she had heard from her daughter Jessica, who works in the facility, and that she was OK. FedEx said in a statement that cellphone access is limited to a small number of workers in the dock and package sorting areas to “support safety protocols and minimize potential distractions.” FedEx Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Frederick Smith called the shooting a “senseless act of violence.” “This is a devastating day, and words are hard to describe the emotions we all feel,” he wrote in an email to employees. The killings marked the latest in a string of recent mass shootings across the country and the third mass shooting this year in Indianapolis. Five people, including a pregnant woman, were shot and killed in the city in January, and a man was accused of killing three adults and a child before abducting his daughter during at argument at a home in March. In other states last month, eight people were fatally shot at massage businesses in the Atlanta area, and 10 died in gunfire at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado. Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett said the community must guard against resignation and “the assumption that this is simply how it must be and we might as well get used to it.” President Joe Biden said he had been briefed on the shooting and called gun violence “an epidemic” in the U.S. “Too many Americans are dying every single day from gun violence. It stains our character and pierces the very soul of our nation,” he said in a statement. Later, he tweeted, “We can, and must, do more to reduce gun violence and save lives.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was “horrified and heartbroken” by the shooting and called for congressional action on gun control. “As we pray for the families of all affected, we must work urgently to enact commonsense gun violence prevention laws to save lives & prevent this suffering,” the Democratic leader said in a tweet. Gov. Eric Holcomb ordered flags to be flown at half-staff until April 20. ___ Associated Press reporters Michael Balsamo and Eric Tucker in Washington contributed to this report.

SAN ANTONIO — Portland point guard Damian Lillard will not play against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night due to a strained right hamstring. Lillard began experiencing discomfort in his hamstring during practice Thursday and it did not improve Friday. Portland coach Terry Stotts said Lillard is sitting as a precaution but was unsure if the six-time All-Star would be available for Sunday’s game at Charlotte. Lillard is averaging 28.7 points and 7.7 assists in 52 games. He has missed only two games this season, including the Trail Blazers’ victory over the Orlando Magic on March 26 after banging knees with Dallas’ Josh Richardson in a previous game. Derrick Jones Jr. will start in Lillard’s place against San Antonio as Portland attempts to snap a two-game losing streak. Associated Press, The Associated Press
A look at what's happening around the majors Saturday: ___ WELL RESTED Jacob deGrom and the Mets hope to finally play some baseball. New York has had four games in six days either postponed or suspended due to weather, including a snow out Friday night for the opener of their series at Colorado. The club has had seven postponements this season, including all three games of its opening series against Washington, which was called off due to the Nationals’ COVID-19 outbreak. Saturday’s forecast in Denver looks chilly but clear, making it likely deGrom (0-1, 0.64) will finally get back on the mound two days after he was initially supposed to take his turn. New York’s ace will start the opener of a doubleheader against Chi Chi Gonzalez (1-0, 3.60), and Mets lefty Joe Lucchesi (0-0, 0.00) will face Germán Márquez (0-1, 4.02) in the late game. BEAT-UP BEARS Willson Contreras and the Cubs are feeling understandably unsettled in the box. Chicago batters were plunked four times by Braves starter Kyle Wright on Friday and have been hit a major league-leading 13 times this season — the Cubs also led the bigs last year with 52 hit-by-pitches. Contreras was hit Friday for the third time in four games and fifth time overall this season. The Cubs are frustrated by all the bruises, especially after reliever Ryan Tepera was suspended three games Thursday for throwing behind Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff. Manager David Ross and game-planning coach Mike Borzello were also suspended one game each, bans they served in Friday’s 5-2 loss to Atlanta. ACES UP The Dodgers and Padres continue their first series of the season with aces Clayton Kershaw (2-1, 2.89) and Yu Darvish (1-0, 3.06) on the mound. Kershaw has shaken off a difficult opening day start with consecutive gems, allowing one run over 13 innings in starts against Oakland and Washington. Darvish is having a similar season, struggling against Arizona on opening day before limiting San Francisco and Pittsburgh to a run each in his past two starts. EAST BEAST Tyler Glasnow (1-0, 0.46) takes the mound as the Rays continue a series at Yankee Stadium. The 6-foot-8 right-hander has 29 strikeouts and just three walks in 19 2/3 innings this season, and he’s been outstanding in the Bronx in his career, going 1-0 with a 1.54 ERA in two outings. Left-hander Jordan Montgomery (1-0, 3.27) is up for New York after allowing four runs in five innings against the Rays on Sunday. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB The Associated Press

Kamloops Fire Rescue is investigating a number of suspicious fires on a First Nations reserve on Monday. In a statement this week, the City of Kamloops said there were four fires on the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc lands — east of downtown Kamloops — one of which resulted in firefighters being called out. Kamloops Fire teamed up with First Nation's Natural Resources and the Planning and Engineering departments to fight it. Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc Kúkpi7 (Chief) Rosanne Casimir says the fires are concerning because they all occured within a 24-hour window and some of them were close to homes. "Two of them were closer to the river, and another one was very close to a residential area," Casimir said Wednesday to Shelley Joyce, the host of CBC's Daybreak Kamloops. "Had those winds been up, those homes would not be standing." Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc Chief Rosanne Casimir says the fires happened close to some homes.(Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc) Casimir declined to comment on whether she thinks the fires were arsons but allowed that they were definitely suspicious. "Fires do not start at those times of the night when people are still sleeping," she said. Kamloops has had sunny and dry weather this week with humidity around 30 per cent and temperatures of up to 25 C. Kamloops Fire Chief Steve Robinson says he doesn't think the fires on Tk'emlúps lands were naturally caused. He says members living on the reserve need to be on high alert amid the current dry weather. "We know that there's been no significant precipitation in the last four to six weeks, and in the city of Kamloops … the brush and the fields are dry, so we all need to be careful," he said Tuesday. The city says Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc and Kamloops Fire Rescue are working with the RCMP to try to determine the cause of the fires and prevent future incidents.

WASHINGTON — Hard-right House Republicans on Friday were discussing forming an America First Caucus, which one document described as championing “Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and warning that mass immigration was putting the “unique identity” of the U.S. at risk. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the paper, which was first reported by Punchbowl News, a news outlet covering Capitol Hill. The AP could not independently confirm the organization’s origins or current status, but Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said he was joining and indicated that fellow conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., was behind it. The document was being circulated as the GOP is struggling to determine a clear direction as it prepares to try winning back control of the House and Senate in the 2022 elections. Among the party's divisions are how closely to tack behind Donald Trump, and the caucus' seven-page policy platform clearly embraces the former president's world view. “The America First Caucus (AFC) exists to promote Congressional policies that are to the long-term benefit of the American nation,” it begins. It says the group aims to “follow in President Trump’s footsteps, and potentially step on some toes and sacrifice sacred cows for the good of the American nation." The group calls for limiting legal immigration “to those that can contribute not only economically, but have demonstrated respect for this nation’s culture and rule of law." It voices support for infrastructure “that reflects the architectural, engineering and esthetic value that befits the progeny of European architecture." House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., issued a critical tweet that an aide confirmed was aimed at the group. “America is built on the idea that we are all created equal and success is earned through honest, hard work. It isn’t built on identity, race, or religion," McCarthy wrote. “The Republican Party is the party of Lincoln & the party of more opportunity for all Americans—not nativist dog whistles." Punchbowl said the group was linked to Greene and Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz. Over GOP objections, the House voted to remove Greene from her committee assignments early this year for her recycling of violent, conspiratorial ideas on social media. Asked to provide a copy of the caucus document, Greene spokesman Nick Dyer said in an email: “We aren’t circulating anything, Alan. This was a typical DC gossip leak.” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told reporters he was considering joining the caucus and said, “Yes,” when asked if Greene and Gosar were involved with it. Gaetz tweeted: “I’m proud to join @mtgreenee in the #AmericaFirst Caucus. We will end wars, stop illegal immigration & promote trade that is fair to American workers.” Gaetz is facing a federal investigation for sex trafficking accusations, according to people who have described the probe on condition of anonymity. The document aims some of its toughest language at immigration. President Joe Biden's administration has struggled to handle large numbers of migrants at the Southwest border and has had little success winning legislation in Congress. “America is a nation with a border, and a culture, strengthened by a common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions,” the paper says. “History has shown that societal trust and political unity are threatened when foreign citizens are imported en-masse into a country." It adds that “the long-term existential future of America as a unique country with a unique culture and a unique identity being put at unnecessary risk is something our leaders" cannot ignore. The document espouses Trump's false claims that “recent election results demonstrate a compromised integrity of our elections." It proposes curbing high technology firms that are “weaponized and deployed against conservatives” and lambasts steps against the pandemic like mandates for masks, social distancing and lockdowns for “conditioning the culture and behaviour of Americans” and destroying the economy. It says “better waste management” would be more helpful for the environment than Paris Climate Accord efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Alan Fram, The Associated Press

U.S. federal investigators are probing an intrusion at San Francisco-based software auditing company Codecov that affected an unknown number of its 29,000 customers, the firm said, raising the specter of knock-on breaches at companies elsewhere. Although the ramifications of the incident remain unclear, the breach drew comparisons to the recent compromise of Texas software firm SolarWinds by alleged Russian hackers, both because the breach could have follow-on effects at many of the organizations that use Codecov and because of the length of time that the doctored software remained in circulation. The company says on its website that it has 29,000 customers including consumer goods conglomerate Procter & Gamble Co, web hosting firm GoDaddy Inc, The Washington Post, and Australian software firm Atlassian Corporation PLC.
