ARLINGTON, [TX]--Police say a woman has been charged with capital murder in the shooting deaths of her husband and step-daughter in the 2500 block of Edinburgh Street. A search warrant affidavit states Veronica Dunnachie, 35, shot her husband, Russ Dunnachie, as well as his adult daughter Kimberly Wednesday afternoon.

FERGUSON, [MO]--They've been called an anti-government militia, right wing radicals, even the KKK, and they are armed and stationed on Ferguson rooftops. But the group called the "Oath Keepers" say they're here to protect. While violent protests and rioting played out on the street last Tuesday, Sam Andrews stood watch from a rooftop.

AUSTIN, [TX]--Police say the suspect who opened fire on the Austin Police Department Headquarters early Friday morning was part of an ultra-conservative Christian group that is against bi-racial families and anti-gay. Larry McQuilliams was shot and killed by an Austin police officer after opening fire on police headquarters at around 2:20 a.m. Before that confrontation he had fired on the federal courthouse next to Republic Square Park and the Mexican Consulate at Baylor and 5th streets.

AUSTIN, [TX]--A Texas man who shot up downtown Austin buildings and tried to burn the Mexican Consulate before he was gunned down by police harbored extremist right-wing views and appeared to be planning a broader attack against churches and government facilities, law enforcement officials said Monday. Larry McQuilliams had multiple weapons, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and a map of 34 downtown buildings that likely were potential targets in his pre-dawn rampage the day after Thanksgiving.
