A Los Angeles school police officer who was wounded last week in a shooting that prompted authorities to shut down a large swath of Woodland Hills concocted a story that he was the victim of the shooting, authorities said Thursday night. The startling revelation came at a hastily called news conference by Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck, who said detectives became suspicious about the officer's story as they investigated the case. Police earlier had said that Los Angeles Unified School District Officer Jeff Stenroos was shot in the chest after he was confronted by a man Jan. 19 as he was attempting to break into vehicles in Woodland Hills, near the eastern boundary of the El Camino Real High School campus.

The number one, as in the number of Clippers wins, was lodged in Rasual Butler's mind, but so were some others from his performance Monday, such as his three-for-15 shooting from the field. That's why he stayed after practice Thursday, going well into extra time. Butler worked on his shot long after his teammates had departed for lunch or other errands before their afternoon flight to the Bay Area for tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors. "I was just a little disappointed in the way I shot the ball the other night," said Butler, who was also five for six from the free-throw line.

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.
