A church that served as a refuge for people fleeing the rampage at Edgewater Technology this week became a place of healing Thursday night as hundreds gathered to pay tribute to the seven people who were killed. Wreaths, notes and a single teddy bear lined a brick wall outside the Internet company, while the mourners streamed inside St. Joseph's Church across the street.

Two gunmen opened fire on a group of diners in a crowded restaurant Monday, killing four people and critically wounding another while sending scores of terrified lunchtime patrons diving for cover. Moments after the shooting, two suspects were captured as they fled the scene. Two off-duty officers who had been eating lunch in the restaurant and two other officers who were working a nearby private detail made the arrests.

He called himself Mucko, a comical version of the name his nieces and nephews couldn't pronounce. And to those adults who knew him, Michael McDermott was equally hard to figure out--a quirky, private person who kept his opinions to himself and almost never bothered others. But as he stood stiffly Wednesday in a packed Massachusetts courtroom, the hulking, bearded man accused of killing seven co-workers at an Internet firm the day before clearly seemed to have left a savage mark on the world.

John C. Salvi III, accused of abortion clinic shootings in Massachusetts and Virginia, was indicted here Wednesday on federal charges of carrying a firearm across state lines to commit a felony. The indictment by a federal grand jury is intended to ensure that Salvi will be returned to Boston swiftly, averting a lengthy battle over his extradition from Virginia, where he is in custody for shooting up an abortion clinic.

Two women were killed and five other people were wounded in nearly identical shooting attacks at two abortion clinics here Friday morning by a man clad entirely in black and wielding a .22-caliber hunting rifle. The FBI immediately entered the case, joining local law authorities in a block-by-block search for the mysterious gunman, who may have been wounded in an exchange of gunfire with a security guard at one of the clinics. The guard was one of the injured.

One week to the day after a gunman opened fire on two women's health clinics, killing two and injuring five, John C. Salvi III pleaded not guilty Friday to federal weapon charges stemming from the case. The aspiring hairdresser from Hampton Beach, N.H., spoke in a shaky voice as he told District Judge Charles B. Swatwood III that he understood his rights and the charges against him. He appeared nervous, looking and sounding younger than his 22 years. Salvi's arraignment reflected what U.S. Atty.

After the killing of a Florida abortion clinic doctor and his escort last summer raised fears of a nationwide conspiracy, U.S. deputy marshals were dispatched to protect dozens of clinics in cities around the nation. But the clinics in Brookline, Mass., where two women were shot to death Friday, were not among them because there was "no perceived threat" there, a Marshals Service spokesman said, even though clinics in the Boston suburb were frequent targets of protesters.

In a district court seldom troubled by crimes of violence, the most serious charges yet--two counts of murder and five counts of armed assault with intent to murder--were filed Monday against accused abortion clinic killer John C. Salvi III. Staring expressionlessly, the 22-year-old apprentice hairdresser stood silently as a clerk announced his plea of not guilty to all charges stemming from the attack Dec. 30 on two women's health clinics in this sedate community adjacent to Boston.
