A student on a remote Indian reservation in Minnesota burst through the metal detector at his high school Monday and shot dead five classmates, a teacher and a security guard before turning the gun on himself, authorities said. Before his rampage at the school, the student shot and killed his grandparents at their home on the Red Lake Indian Reservation, authorities said. His grandfather, Sgt. Daryl Lussier, had served for more than 35 years on the Red Lake police force.

One of the greatest gifts for a teenager is when a grandfather is able to live long enough to offer life lessons that can be cherished forever. Grant Hockin, a standout senior pitcher at La Verne Damien, was the recipient of such influential advice from the man he called "grandpa," Harmon Killebrew, a baseball Hall of Famer from the Minnesota Twins who hit 573 home runs in 22 major-league seasons. "He always told me to treat everyone with respect and don't take anything for granted," Hockin said.

The last time Nevada Republicans caucused in a presidential contest, they delivered a stunning second-place finish to Texas Rep. Ron Paul, the libertarian-minded candidate who had been largely written off, averaging last place in polls leading up to caucus day. The lesson was that Paul may not appeal to a broad base of voters, but the people who like him can be counted on to turn up and disproportionately represent themselves at caucus events, which...

When filmmaker Darren Aronofsky started scouting locations for his biblical flood epic, "Noah," he had two potentially competing needs. The landscapes on which he would shoot exteriors needed at first to look like an uninhabitable wasteland, and, after the deluge, a new garden of Eden, where Noah, his family and his ark of animals could begin to repopulate the earth. The writer-director's production team considered Death Valley, deserts in Mexico and the Canary Islands. But when they visited Iceland, "Noah" found its port of call.

Chrishaun “CeCe” McDonald, 24, and some friends, all of whom were black, were walking outside a Minneapolis bar last June when four white people began calling to them using racial and other types of epithets. McDonald, who was born a man and is transitioning to a woman, later testified that she and her friends tried to walk away. But, authorities say, one of the bar patrons, Molly Flaherty, smashed a glass of alcohol against McDonald's face, cutting her. A fight broke out. At one point, Flaherty's ex-boyfriend, Dean Schmitz, said: “Look at that boy dressed like a girl," according to McDonald's testimony.

C.J. Wilson's earned-run average in the warmth of Arizona and Dodger Stadium was 1.11 as the Angels' $77.5-million left-handed addition to the pitching rotation cruised to a 4-0 exhibition record. Tough, however, to simulate pitching in an icebox there. Now, Orange County's Wilson makes his regular-season debut in the frigid conditions of early spring in Minnesota, where he'll oppose the Twins' Nick Blackburn Monday at Target Field. “Nothing you can do, just adjust,” Wilson said.

Desperate Hockey Teams, Part II. The other entry in the three-way battle between Minnesota, Phoenix and Dallas for two wild-card playoff spots in the Western Conference, the Coyotes, visits the Kings on Wednesday night. It's no coincidence that Minnesota and Phoenix are the only teams to beat the Kings this season when the Kings led after two periods. They both did so in March with the Wild rallying for a 3-2 win Monday night. "It's hard but you just have to realize the desperation of teams," Kings center Mike Richards said.

MINNEAPOLIS - Down two more injured players, the Clippers just stayed the course, sticking with their “next man up” mantra. They didn't have that many men to step into the void, but the 10 players the Clippers had healthy Monday night were more than enough for them to overwhelm the Minnesota Timberwolves, 114-104, at the Target Center. Blake Griffin missed his first game of the season with back spasms. BOX SCORE: Clippers 114, Timberwolves 104 Jamal Crawford didn't play because of a sore left Achilles' tendon.

MINNEAPOLIS - Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin will not play against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night because of back spasms. Griffin will sit out a game for the first time this season and Jared Dudley will take his place in the starting lineup. With the playoffs about three weeks away, the Clippers have been contemplating for the past few days whether to shut down Griffin for a while so that he can be 100% healthy. “This part of the season is important, obviously, as far as [playoff]

It was all going so well until the brother-in-law got involved. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick was picking up right where he left off the other day, looking sharp, poised and on his game, even if all of his teammates weren't quite along for the ride Monday at Staples Center. Then Minnesota forward Matt Moulson, who is Quick's brother-in-law and a former teammate, got opportunistic and sparked a third-period rally by the Wild as Minnesota beat the Kings, 3-2, scoring twice in a span of 1 minute 2 seconds.

The Minnesota Timberwolves (35-35) appear to have fallen short of their playoff goal, sitting in 10th place in the Western Conference, seven games behind the eighth-place Phoenix Suns (43-29). The Lakers (23-47) visit the Timberwolves on Friday night, playing their second game in as many days after a 108-105 loss to the Bucks on Thursday in Milwaukee. The Wolves are a potent offensive team but the status of center Nikola Pekovic (ankle) isn't clear. Rookie Gorgui Dieng, drafted with the 21st overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft, has made a significant impression in recent weeks.
