Inside Daily Brief (Sep 13th, 2017)

Up to six people reportedly were shot, one of them fatally, at a high school near Spokane, Washington. The Spokesman-Review reported that a shooter was taken into custody Wednesday at Freeman High School in Rockford, Washington. “The shooter is in the back seat of a patrol car right now,” the newspaper quoted Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich as saying. Shots were heard shortly after 10 a.m. Schools in Spokane were placed on lockdown as a precautionary measure. A Twitter user with the handle @TheChristinaXX posted a photo showing students hunched on the floor of a classroom. "Freeman elementary currently," she wrote in the 10:35 a.m. post. "I am a junior, evacuated from the high school. At least 4 shots." - SPOKESMAN

Hurricane Jose's path in the Atlantic Ocean remains uncertain Wednesday, though the storm is unlikely to make landfall in the continental U.S., meteorologists said. The Category 1 hurricane, now moving southeast, is expected to rotate clockwise toward the Bahamas and U.S. coast by late Thursday. An AccuWeather meterologist reported that only 10 to 20 percent of models show the storm hitting the East Coast, most likely between Canada and South Carolina - though remnants of Hurricane Irma could push it back from the mainland. On Wednesday, Jose's maximum sustained winds of 75 mph barely registered on the Saffir-Simpson strength scale. By Saturday, it could be downgraded to a tropical storm. - USAT

An 18-year-old has confessed to killing the mayor of a Belgian town by slashing his throat in a cemetery Monday in an apparent act of revenge. Multiple sources reported that the teenaged suspect blamed Mayor Alfred Gadenne for his father's suicide, after the suspect's father reportedly lost his job at town hall. Gadenne, 71, was the head elected official of Mouscron, a city of about 57,000 people on the Belgian border with France. Gadenne was also a caretaker at the cemetery, opening and closing the doors each day. Reports say someone who identified himself as the perpetrator called police just before 8 p.m. Monday to report the attack. When police arrived, the suspect was there with a box cutter. "He presented himself to police and offered no resistance," a spokesman for the regional Crown Prosecutor's office said. - AP

Myanmar's de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, has canceled a trip to the United Nations General Assembly as she faces mounting criticism about her handling of the Rohingya crisis. Suu Kyi, a Nobel laureate, is set to deliver a state of the address next Tuesday that will fully address the crisis, according to a government spokesman. In what the U.N. secretary general called a "catastrophic" humanitarian situation, nearly 400,000 minority Muslim Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh since violence broke out in Myanmar in late August. On Wednesday, a spokesman for the presidential office said Suu Kyi cancelled her trip for two reasons. "One is the current situation in Rakhine state," Zaw Htay said in a statement. "We have terrorist attacks and also there are many works on public safety and humanitarian works." The second reason, he said, is that the government has received reports of possible terrorist attacks in Myanmar. - CNN

A space capsule carrying two U.S. astronauts and a Russian cosmonaut has successfully docked at the International Space Station. NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei and Joe Acaba and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin arrived safely after a six-hour flight aboard the Soyuz MS-06 spacecraft, which launched from a Russian space launch facility in Kazakhstan. They join an existing crew of three: American Randy Bresnik, Russia's Sergey Ryazanskiy and Italy's Paolo Nespoli. According to NASA, Acaba, Misurkin and Vande Hei will spend about five months continuing "work on hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard the International Space Station, humanity’s only permanently occupied microgravity laboratory." - AP

Russia reportedly has taken away parking privileges for U.S. diplomats at two foreign consulates. The "sanctions battle" between the countries apparently continued Wednesday when reports surfaced that crews had painted over spaces designated as special parking at the U.S. consulate in St. Petersburg. Special parking signs were also removed at the U.S. consulate in Yekaterinburg. A spokeswoman at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow declined to comment on the removals. Earlier this week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Russia may demand a reduction in U.S. diplomatic missions by another 155 employees "to bring these conditions into full compliance with what is called parity." The news comes after the U.S. in late August ordered Russia to close diplomatic offices in San Francisco, Washington and New York. The U.S. was responding to a prior Russian order to curtail American diplomatic presence there. - NYMAG

Police are investigating the deaths of at least six people at a Florida nursing home, which apparently had no air conditioning after Hurricane Irma left millions without power. On Wednesday morning, emergency crews responded to calls of patients in distress at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Hollywood, Florida. Officers found "extremely hot" conditions and evacuated more than 100 people. Three people died at the facility, while another three were pronounced dead at the hospital. “As a precautionary measure, we’ve assigned police officers to go check all the other 42 assisted living facilities and nursing homes throughout the city to make sure they’re in sufficient care of the elderly," Hollywood Police Chief Tomas Sanchez said at a news conference. Sanchez noted that the incident "may be related to the loss of power" from Irma, though police haven't ruled out other possibilities. - NYTIMES

Paris and Los Angeles will host the 2024 and 2028 summer Olympic games, respectively. The International Olympic Committee formally awarded the bids in a unanimous vote Wednesday, marking the first time the IOC has chosen two summer Olympics location at the same time. “This is the moment Angelenos have been waiting for,” L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti said. The decision was largely pre-determined, as four of the six original cities bidding for 2024 withdrew over concerns about the size, cost and other difficulties associated with hosting the international sporting event. Both cities have hosted the Olympics twice. Paris will host the event a century after its last Games in 1924 (The first time was in 1900). Los Angeles hosted in 1932 and 1984. - LATIMES

A woman was arrested on suspicion of trying to break into the primary school of Britain's Prince George. London police tweeted Wednesday that they detained the 40-year-old woman on suspicion of attempted burglary at Thomas's Battersea School in south London.

He was reportedly not on school premises at the time of the incident. - CNN

Sean Spicer and Chelsea Manning will join Harvard Kennedy School's Institute of Politics this fall as visiting fellows. Spicer, the former White House press secretary, and Manning, a transgender soldier imprisoned for leaking classified material, will join the dozen other visiting fellows for Harvard's 2017-18 academic year. "Broadening the range and depth of opportunity for students to hear from and engage with experts, leaders and policy-shapers is a cornerstone of the Institute of Politics," Bill Delahunt, acting director of the institute, said. "We welcome the breadth of thought-provoking viewpoints on race, gender, politics and the media." The program welcomes "distinguished veterans of public life" to the university "for a limited, yet comprehensive number of events," according to a press release. - GLOBE
