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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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  - Blake Griffin stood erect with his back up against the basketball stanchion for support, contemplating whether it was wise to push through back spasms that forced him from the game Saturday night in Houston or to rest. Griffin decided to rest rather than play against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night. He probably won't play at Phoenix on Wednesday. The Clippers have seven regular-season games left before the playoffs start in about three weeks, and they want make sure Griffin is 100% healthy.

For three decades, alcoholics and addicts sought sobriety in the desert at the famed Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage. But in recent years, the best-known name in substance abuse recovery lost much of its luster as internal strife, competition from luxury rehab centers and industry turmoil took their toll. All that led to the once-unimaginable takeover of the center last month by the Hazelden Foundation, another addiction treatment pioneer. Now Hazelden, a Minnesota nonprofit, is looking to preserve the former first lady's legacy with an ambitious expansion in Southern California and beyond.

Bad teams and the end of the season can make for some strange situations. Healthy players can develop mysterious (read: nonexistent) injuries. Productive veterans can lose playing time to unproven youngsters. Then there is what happened to Mark Madsen on April 19, 2006. The Minnesota Timberwolves power forward who had not taken a three-point shot in 135 games and 1,617 minutes over parts of the previous three seasons took seven shots from beyond the arc . . . in a span of 9 minutes 4 seconds.

Minnesota state representative Pat Garofalo has some questions to answer Monday after he sent out a tweet Sunday night that many people took as racist. The tweet:     Let's be honest, 70% of teams in NBA could fold tomorrow + nobody would notice a difference w/ possible exception of increase in streetcrime - Rep. Pat Garofalo (@PatGarofalo) March 9, 2014 Many people on Twitter perceived Garofalo's tweet as a shot at African Americans, since the majority of players in the NBA are black.

WASHINGTON -- President Obama is scheduled to tour a revived train station in the Midwest on Wednesday to extol the benefits of federal spending on light-rail, roads and bridges as he tries to prod Congress to take up a major transportation bill this year. During a visit to St. Paul, Minn.'s freshly renovated Union Depot, Obama is to outline a four-year, $302-billion transportation plan, the White House said. If Congress doesn't act to renew infrastructure programs, more than 700,000 jobs will be at risk, Obama plans to say. The president's warning may be a bit premature.
