Market takes a wild ride
After an unprecedented 1,000-point decline at the open on Monday, the Dow closed with a loss of nearly 600 points.
It was an extremely turbulent day for U.S. stocks driven by deep fears about China's economic slowdown. Stocks staged a comeback that nearly brought the Dow back into positive territory but that ultimately failed.
The 588-point decline was the worst for the Dow since August 2011.
Trooper shot, killed after stopping to help
Authorities in Louisiana are working to connect the possible dots between two killings -- that of Louisiana State Trooper Steven Vincent and another man, who officials have not yet named.
The second victim was believed to have been sharing a home with Kevin Daigle, 54, who authorities say has been charged in Vincent's death.
The 44-year-old veteran trooper was shot Sunday after he stopped to help Daigle, whose pickup was stuck in a ditch, according to Col. Michael Edmonson, the police force's superintendent. Vincent died of his injuries Monday.
