CINCINNATI (AP) — Family members of a man fatally shot by police at a Wal-Mart say they believe store video will provide answers about what happened that day and vindicate him.

The family's attorney and the father of John Crawford III said Monday that they requested surveillance video and communications between police and store security from Aug. 5, when Crawford was shot in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek. Police said Crawford, 22, waved an air rifle at customers and was shot by officers when he wouldn't drop it.

HILO, Hawaii (AP) — Robert Gavel was too busy Monday helping a crew repair a home savaged by Tropical Storm Iselle to consider that his hard-hit community on Hawaii's Big Island would likely decide who would become the state's next U.S. senator.

The remote, rural Puna region was often neglected by political circles until now, but Gavel was thinking about the home he owns: A fallen tree ripped off its roof, left the living room exposed and damaged a flat-screen TV, which dangled precariously.

"Lawyers fulfill their professional calling to its fullest extent when they rise above particular partisan debates and participate as problem solvers," he said in a rare public speaking event before the ABA that focused on the historical significance of the Magna Carta, an English charter that turns 800 next year.
