EVENING NEWS HEADLINES - FEBRUARY 11, 2013

SCHOOL DISTRICT REPORT CARDS

(AP) - The Ohio Department of Education says it's ready to release school districts' long-awaited report cards now that a review of attendance data practices has been released. The report cards for the 2011-2012 school year should have been published last summer but were delayed because of a state investigation into districts' enrollment policies.

ARRESTS IN CHICAGO SHOOTING

(AP) - Two gang members have been charged with murder in the shooting death of 15-year-old honor student Hadiya Pendleton. She was killed near the Chicago home of President Barack Obama just days after she performed during his inaugural in Washington. On Saturday, first lady Michelle Obama attended the girl's funeral.

MANHUNT FOR FUGITIVE EX-COP

(AP) - A U.S. Marshals spokesman says the manhunt for Christopher Dorner is like the game show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" where, "instead of one contestant, we've got 100,000, and there's only one question you have to answer. All they have to answer is where he's at, and we can take it from there." Authorities say they're investigating more than 700 tips after offering a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of the fugitive ex-LA cop, who is wanted in the shooting deaths of three people, including a Riverside, Calif., policeman.

DELAWARE SHOOTING

(AP) - An eyewitness to today's courthouse shooting in Delaware that left three dead, including the gunman, says the man walked right up to the first victim and shot her point-blank in the chest. Bill Heriot says the gunman then turned around and shot a second woman who was about 10 feet away. He says the shooter then exchanged gunfire with police before falling to the floor. Authorities say the gunman had spent years in court over custody disputes.

BLIZZARD CLEAN-UP

(AP) - The National Guard has been using heavy equipment to help clear the streets in Connecticut's three biggest cities. Some parts of the state were hit with more than 3 feet of snow. This weekend's storm is blamed for at least 18 deaths in the U.S. and Canada. The big concern now is that rain and higher temperatures will cause roof collapses.

HAGEL VOTE

(AP) - Senate Democrats will force a vote tomorrow on Chuck Hagel's nomination to be defense secretary. Some Republicans have complained that Hagel hasn't answered questions about his personal finances. But not all Republicans agree as Arizona's John McCain, who has voiced opposition to Hagel, says enough documents have been provided.

MEDAL OF HONOR

(AP) - President Barack Obama has presented a Medal of Honor to Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesha. He was cited for bravery during a 2009 Taliban attack in Afghanistan. Despite being wounded in a rocket attack, Romesha fought through his wounds to help lead other soldiers to safety, personally took out at least 10 of the enemy, and retrieved the bodies of the fallen Americans.

MISSISSIPPI TORNADO

(AP) - Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says about 570 homes and mobile homes were damaged or destroyed by yesterday's tornado and another 100 apartments are uninhabitable. Residents are marveling that there were no fatalities. More than 80 people were injured by the powerful twister which swept across at least three counties.

SHARK ATTACKS

(AP) - Scholars say shark attacks in the U.S. reached their highest level in a decade last year. There were 53, the most since 2000. Nearly half of them were in Florida. One attack, in California, was fatal.
