It's Monday, and here are five things to know for your New Day.
Fatal stop: What started out as a routine traffic stop ended up with two Hattiesburg, Mississippi, police offcers shot dead. Four suspects have been arrested in the slayings and a community is reeling as it deals with the loss. Officers Benjamin Deen and Liquori Tate were killed during the traffic stop Saturday evening. The suspects stole a police cruiser and used it as a getaway car, police said. Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree said a vigil for the two officers is planned for today. "We're going to grieve together through this," DuPree said.
Tough weekend: Sunday capped off a wild weekend of weather across the nation's mid-section and part of the South. Yesterday, tornadoes and storms hit parts of South Dakota and Iowa, where the winds ripped off part of the roof of a high school in Lake City. About 100 people were in the school at the time for a special event but none of them was injured. Flood rescues were underway yesterday just outside the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Aerial images showed severe flooding and people being hoisted up, then carried to safety in a helicopter. The threat moves east today, including to the cities of Cleveland, Houston and Memphis, Tennessee.
A snub?: Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud won't attend President Obama's meeting with Arab leaders from the Gulf Cooperation Council this week. Some observers see the announcement, coming days before the meetings begin, as a snub of the President. But Saudi Arabia said the King's change in plans was due primarily the scheduled humanitarian ceasefire in Yemen. Saudi Arabia has been leading a coalition launching air strikes against Houthi rebels who have gained control of much of Yemen. The White House is downplaying the significance of the change.
'Not feeling well': Jimmy Carter cut short a trip to Guyana; a statement from the Carter Center said the 90-year-old former president "was not feeling well." No other details were given about his health and he was expected to return to Atlanta on Sunday. Carter was in the South American country to observe its upcoming election. Carter has traveled around the world as part of his post-presidency work, which includes helping to monitor elections. The vote in Guyana marks the 100th overseas election the Carter Center has observed.
I'm sorry: The director of a Georgia school apologized this weekend for calling out "all the black people" during a graduation ceremony. Nancy Gordeuk, director of TNT Academy, said emotions "got the best of me." Gordeuk said she had prematurely ended the graduation before the valedictorian's speech and people started to leave. She made the remark -- "Look who's leaving, all the black people" -- as she was trying to get people to sit back down. The video spread through social media over the weekend, prompting outraged calls for Gordeuk to lose her job.
