A man who apparently held a long-standing grudge against a judge killed her, two state troopers and a newspaper editor Tuesday during a wild three-hour rampage that ended when police shot him to death. Four other law enforcement officials were wounded, three of them as they pursued the gunman through the small towns and wooded areas of rural New Hampshire and Vermont. The man, identified as Carl Drega, was finally killed in a firefight with nearly two dozen officers.

A man with a history of arrests on drug charges went on a shooting rampage in two communities, killing three men and critically wounding two before police shot him fatally, authorities said Thursday. Three of the shootings occurred in a neighborhood where one resident said drugs are sold "all hours of the night." Rafael Rodriguez, 38, was shot by an officer Wednesday night after shooting twice at the officer at a gasoline station, police said.
