New York police fired on a man who was acting erratically Saturday night at a busy midtown intersection in Manhattan, wounding two bystanders, according to social media and news media reports. “OMG just witnessed NYPD gun down a pedestrian in Times Square,” Kerri Ann Nesbeth, a witness to the shooting, wrote on Twitter. She posted a photo of a man, in blue jeans and a white T-shirt, sprawled on his back on the sidewalk, blood apparently staining the fabric around his right knee.

The demolition of an old power plant in Bakersfield on Saturday morning went badly off script when a man was seriously injured by large shards of flying debris, police said. Several thousand people had gathered by 6 a.m. to watch the planned implosion of a closed steam power plant owned by Pacific Gas and Electric, according to police and Denny Boyles, a spokesman for the company. The curious onlookers stood outside a 1,000-foot safety perimeter set up by the demolition company that Pacific Gas and Electric had hired for the job, Boyles said.

It's tough to win a playoff game going one on five. The Clippers gamely tried Tuesday at Staples Center, but not even the sustained brilliance of Chris Paul was enough on a night he nearly doubled the output of his fellow starters with 35 points.

Winners of six straight BCS crowns, the SEC needs any two among these three teams - Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame - to take a loss in order to get a team back in the BCS race. The conference could even advance two schools to the end game if all three undefeated teams lose once. The SEC title winner seems a sure bet, but what if No. 6 Florida also finishes 11-1 with a last win over Florida State?

If your heart stops and you fall to the ground, your chances of survival may depend on which neighborhood you're in when you collapse. Patients suffering cardiac arrest in poorer, predominantly black neighborhoods were half as likely to receive CPR from a bystander as those in richer, predominantly white neighborhoods, according to research published in Thursday's edition of the New England Journal of Medicine. Even cardiac arrest victims in well-to-do black neighborhoods were 23% less likely to receive bystander assistance.
