  • Chicago police officer shoots, kills two, one by mistake (Reuters) In a city troubled by allegations of police misuse of force, a Chicago officer early on Saturday shot and killed a male college student and a mother of five, both black, and the police department later said the woman's death was both accidental and tragic. The Chicago police statement:

"Officers were confronted by a combative subject resulting in the discharging of the officer's weapon which fatally wounded two individuals. [ A woman, 55,] was accidentally struck and tragically killed ... the department extends its deepest condolences to the victim's family and friends."

  • Hoping for a Price Surge, Oil Companies Keep Wells in Reserve (The New York Times) The price of oil keeps dropping. But that didn't stop a work crew from drilling a well recently on what was once a cornfield, carefully guiding the last sections of 13,000 feet of pipe spiraling into the hard Niobrara shale with a diamond-tipped bit. Their well, one of hundreds drilled by Anadarko Petroleum in eastern Colorado's Wattenberg field this year, could someday gush as many as 800 barrels of crude oil a day. But Anadarko is not planning to produce a drop of crude from the well for at least another year because the price of oil is now so pitifully low.
