When a rash of burglaries and other crimes broke out in and around a gated community in Sanford, Fla., residents wanted some form of protection. Someone raised the possibility of a neighborhood watch group. But only one resident seems to have  come forward for the duties: George Zimmerman. Zimmerman, 28, is the focal point for national outrage over the fatal Feb. 26 shooting of an unarmed teen, Trayvon Martin. The 17-year-old was returning from a sugar run -- he'd bought a bag of Skittles and an iced tea at a local convenience store -- and was reportedly talking on a cellphone to his girlfriend when he crossed paths with Zimmerman.

After nearly every baseline cut, Clippers guard Eric Gordon penetrated, squared up to the basket and swished a three-point shot. By sinking five consecutive three-pointers in one segment during his 20-minute shooting session following Thursday's practice, a remote control was not necessary to replay his shooting stroke. With Gordon absent for nine of the last 12 games, his shooting clinic provided a reminder of what the Clippers have been sorely lacking. Aside from his 18.1 points per game and play-making abilities, the Clippers (8-11)

Officials do not believe the shooting was related to the event, and he was several miles away when the violence occurred. Law enforcement sources said the gunman set a home on fire, opened fire on several cars and appeared to try to carjack two vehicles.

A governor's warrant has been signed to extradite the man suspected in a fatal shooting and subsequent crash on the Las Vegas Strip, officials said. Los Angeles County district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison confirmed the governor's warrant had been received, clearing the way for Ammar Harris to be returned to Nevada authorities. Harris, 27, was arrested in a Studio City apartment complex a week after the Feb. 21 shooting. His public defender requested the governor's warrant when Harris refused to waive his extradition rights at a March hearing.
