Pomona police searching for a man suspected of shooting a woman and pistol-whipping another didn't have to look far to find him. Isaac Serrano, 27, a suspected gang member, was arrested a day later in the El Monte jail on suspicion of driving under the influence. It all started about 6:30 p.m. Saturday when Pomona police say Serrano confronted his two alleged victims in their apartment in the 600 block of North Huntington Avenue. Serrano believed the pair had been involved in a nearby burglary, officials said in a statement, and during the argument became violent and “shot one victim and beat the other with his handgun.” Children who were in the apartment and witnessed the incident were not injured, police said.

CAIRO -- Gunmen opened fire on wedding celebrants outside a Coptic Christian church late Sunday, killing at least three people, including a young girl and the mother of the groom. About a dozen others were injured, officials and state media said. The drive-by shooting in a Cairo suburb was part of a grim pattern of attacks against the Coptic minority in the wake of the coup that toppled Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July. Some of his followers blame Christians for instigating the enormous protests that preceded his ouster.

Despite getting pulled for it, Lakers center Andrew Bynum has professed that he'll continue to shoot three-pointers whenever he wants. It might cause Lakers Coach Mike Brown to bench him again, even if it's when the Lakers host the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday at Staples Center. But Bynum has at least one supporter pulling for him to become a perimeter shooter. The only problem is that this person has ulterior motives. Said Oklahoma City Coach Scott Brooks: "Hopefully Bynum continues to have that outside shot that he has and we don't have to guard him down low. " Bynum's failed three-point attempt early in the third quarter of the Lakers' 104-101 victory Tuesday prompted Brown to bench him for most of the second half.
