FILE - In this Sept. 15, 2016 file photo, Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs holds up a photo showing the type of BB gun that police say a 13-year-old Tyre King pulled from his waistband just before he was shot and killed by police investigating an armed robbery report in Columbus, Ohio. Four teenagers who were with King before he was fatally shot by a white police officer have been added as third-party defendants in a civil rights lawsuit over his death, even though his family doesn’t believe the teens should be held financially responsible. The teens were added to the federal case over the death of King at the request of the city of Columbus, meaning they could be on the hook if the city or the officer is found liable for damages in the lawsuit.

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks to supporters with the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals Mohegan Sun Pocono, Plains, Pa., Monday April 15, 2019. The stop was part of his tour to emphasize that Democrats' clearest and strongest path to victory in 2020 runs through the upper Midwest -- and that Bernie Sanders is by far the best-positioned candidate to win these states and defeat Donald Trump. At rallies in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania -- three states that flipped and voted for Donald Trump in 2016 -- Sanders will deliver a message focused on fighting against unfair trade deals that undermine workers wages and enrich CEOs, rebuilding and strengthening unions and guaranteeing health care as a right to all with Medicare for All.
