5 things to know for your New Day -- Friday, March 13
It's Friday and here are the 5 things to know for your New Day
Manhunt: Prayers went up, the rain came down and tensions cooled overnight in Ferguson, Missouri. It was a far cry from 24 hours earlier, when tempers flared and two police officers took bullets in the St. Louis suburb. Investigators believe they have identified two people they want to question in the shooting, and one of them might be the shooter, a law enforcement official said. The gunfire erupted during protests following the resignation of Police Chief Thomas Jackson on Wednesday. The department has been under fire since the Michael Brown shooting in August and a scathing Justice Department report that documents a pattern of racial discrimination.
Lots of questions: The circumstances are murky in the investigation of two Secret Service agents who are accused of crashing a car into a White House barricade. The agents in question are George Ogilvie, a top supervisor in the Washington field office, and Mark Connolly, a high-ranking member of President Barack Obama's personal security detail, law enforcement officials said. While there's no doubt the two agents were returning from a farewell party, it's still unclear when, exactly, the agents were stopped, and what gave the impression that they weren't entirely sober. This is the fourth scandal for the agency in three years.
Under assault: While Iraqi forces appear poised to take Tikrit back from ISIS in north, it's a different story west of Baghdad in Ramadi. More than 40 Iraqi soldiers were killed when ISIS blew up the Iraqi army headquarters just outside the town, an Anbar provincial leader said. ISIS launched a new offensive on Ramadi on Wednesday morning. Officials believe this is an ISIS response to the Tikrit operation that is ongoing in the north.
SAE again?: Another chapter of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity is under fire for alleged racial slurs -- this time in Seattle. University of Washington students say fraternity members hurled insults at them during a "Black Lives Matter" protest last month. Michael Hickey, president of the fraternity's university chapter, said they were notified of the protest incident on February 25 -- the same day it happened. However, he said, an investigation determined fraternity members were not behind the insults. The culprits were on a nearby sidewalk and not on the fraternity house property, he said.
Way down under: It was bombed to the bottom of the ocean 70 years ago, sunk by U.S. warplanes during World War II. Earlier this month, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and a team of researchers found Japan's massive Musashi battleship in the Philippines' Sibuyan Sea after an eight-year search.
