A 24-year-old Riverside man died Friday morning after accidentally shooting himself in the head at a local firing range, police said. Surveillance video from the Riverside Magnum indoor public shooting range showed the man loading a handgun and appearing to inadvertently fire a single shot to his head just moments after arriving. The video showed the man "kind of fumbling around" as if he were unfamiliar with the weapon, said Lt. Paul Villanueva of the Riverside Police Department.

Chapman College lost another basketball game Saturday night, 83-69, to UC Riverside in the Hutton Sports Center, but don't ask Panthers Coach Kevin Wilson how it happened. Wilson isn't talking. At least not to the local press, at least not for the time being. Upset over what he considers negative coverage by the two Orange County newspapers that follow his team, Wilson has clammed up. Before Saturday's game, Wilson informed Chapman sports information director B.B.

The Riverside County Sheriff's Department proposed metal detectors for the county administrative center to tighten security after an armed assault last month on officials at City Hall, but supervisors balked at the plan. Before approving the detectors, the supervisors want to know whether the machines will force delays for thousands of employees and visitors. The administrative tower, two blocks from City Hall, has just two entrances to a narrow lobby.

In what is considered the last piece of a campaign to improve relations between police and minorities in Riverside, the city hired LAPD veteran and community policing devotee Russell Leach as its police chief Friday. Leach, 52, was an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department for 20 years, working his way up to captain. By the time he left in April 1995, he was the head of the LAPD's Harbor Division, an area that encompasses diverse communities on the south side of Los Angeles.

Claremont's elm-lined streets and wide front porches befit the town's genteel air. The mostly white suburb of 35,400, dominated by its six colleges and vaunted New England atmosphere, is where academics and clergy come together to discuss the weighty issues of the day. But a year ago today, Claremont's idyllic peace was shattered by a controversial police shooting of a black motorist.

As residents gathered at a South Los Angeles street corner and in church forums this week to protest the police shooting of 13-year-old Devin Brown, only one of the top five mayoral candidates was there to listen to their concerns. Councilman Bernard C. Parks, the former police chief, has urged city leaders to heed the ire sparked by the death of the African American boy, warning that tensions are near a boiling point.
