The suspect in yesterday's fatal shooting of two Capitol Police officrs is now said to be in critical condition.
41-year-old Russell Weston Junior allegedly walked into the U-S Capitol Building through a major entrance, where visitors have to pass through metal detectors.
One source says officer Jacob Chestnut asked Weston to go through the detector and that's when Weston allegedly fired.

The Virginia Department of Health says fish from some parts of the Roanoke River may be contaminated.
The warning is limited to a 50-mile stretch of the river that runs through Campbell, Charlotte, Halifax and Pittsylvania Counties.
The health department says striped bass, white bass and carp in that region may contain poly-chlorinated biphenyls or P-C-B's.
P-C-B's are potentially cancer-causing industrial chemicals-- but the source of the river contamination has not been found.
Signs will soon be posted in at-risk fishing areas along the river.
The health department says, for now, people should limit how much fish they eat from this section of the river.

We're right in the middle of peach season, and there's no better time to make peach cobbler.
This week, We head to Sebrina Ruth-Cooper's house in the Dugwell section of Franklin County.
[IN Q=nat sound]
[OUT Q=Very Good! Thanks, thanks.]
((WHAT A WONDERFUL COUNTRY HOUSE HERE. IT'S A BEAUTIFUL HOME HERE AND A GREAT GARDEN. AND THAT'S THE IDEA OF THIS RECIPE -- FRESH FOOD RIGHT?
Yes. Yes. We're fixing a peach cobbler with praline biscuits on top. It's a wonderful summer dessert.
ALRIGHT. LET'S GET STARTED.
Okay. Great. We have sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Then you add a cup of water and stir it up.
WHAT KIND OF HEAT DO WE HAVE?
SO WE'RE JUST GOING TO WARM IT UP A LITTLE BIT AND MIX IT UP AND IT WILL TAKE ABOUT 30 SECONDS.
Yes. Now we're ready to add the peaches. You have 8 cups of peaches and you just dump them.
AND YOU SKINNED THEM TOO.
Yes. Skinned and peeled.
OH YEAH. PEELED NOT SKINNED.
And then you just stir them up. You bring it up to a boiling point. Okay it's been boiling for about a minute. Now we're going to take it off and just let it sit there while we prepare the crust.
ALRIGHT AS WE SMELL THE PEACHES OVER THERE JUST KIND OF SIMMERING, NOW WE'RE GOING TO WORK ON THE DOUGH, RIGHT?
YOU ALREADY HAVE IN HERE A BUNCH OF FLOUR.
Yes, and we're getting ready to put in a half a cup of shortening to cut into the flour.
THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF SUGAR ALREADY IN THIS FLOUR AS WELL, RIGHT?
Yes. Just a little bit of sugar. And we're just going to cut it in. The mixture is crumbly. And now we're going to add 3/4 cup of buttermilk and stir until it's just moistened. Now, the dough is ready. We're just going to put it on a floured surface, and knead it 3 or 4 times. Sprinkle some flour on top so your hands don't stick. And just pat it.
The dough is very light and fluffy, so you just want to fold it 3 or 4 times and that's all you need to do because you don't want to beat it up.
OKAY. WE'VE GOT THIS GUY OUT TO 12 BY 8 HERE TO FIT THE TOP OF THE PAN. NOW YOU'RE GOING TO SPREAD THIS YUMMY LOOKING PECAN MIXTURE ON TOP.
Right. It's a cup of chopped pecans, a quarter cup of dark brown sugar and 3 tablespoons of melted butter. And you want to get it to within a half an inch of the end of the dough.
WE HAVEN'T SEEN THESE PEACHES FOR AWHILE.
They've been sitting over here on the stove just sitting there while we got the dough ready. And we want to pour it into a lightly greased 9 by 13. Now we take the dough with the pecans on it and roll it longside over first and just do it jellyroll fashion.
AND THIS IS WHAT'S GOING TO GO ON TOP OF OUR PEACHES.
Yes. This is the best part. All we're doing now is slicing the dough into half-inch slices. And a serated knife works best. And you place it over on the peach mixture until you're out of dough or out of room on your dish.
AND THEN IT'S GOING TO GO IN THE OVEN AND WE'RE GOING TO BAKE....?
Bake it for 25 to 30 minutes at the temperature of 400.
IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL. GOLDEN BROWN BISCUITS THERE ON THE TOP. WHY DON'T YOU DIVE IN HERE AND WE CAN GET TO THE BEST PART OF THE WEEKEND DINER.
Yeah. This is great served with ice cream and..
Your welcome. Do you want some more peaches?
SURE WHY NOT. ALRIGHT THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT.
This is a family tradition for our summertime eating. We love to make this cobbler.
THIS IS GREAT.
Good. I'm glad you like it.
I'M LEAVING A BOWL HERE FOR OUR PHOTOGRAPHER, HOWARD, WHOSE STOMACH IS GRUMBLING, YOU MIGHT HERE IT. SABRINA, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR LETTING US COME INTO YOUR HOME. IT'S A WONDERFUL RECIPE.

buildings in the world. But one man managed to test it. The test now,

Russell Weston Junior apparently spent 53 days in a Montana State Mental hospital in 1996.
A judge ordered the committment after finding Weston was a danger to himself and others.
He was released after a medical team concluded the danger was over.
Shortly after Russell Weston was apprehended in the Capitol Building shooting, police in his hometown of Valmeyer, Illinois cordoned off his parents home to prevent the media from storming in.

(([Anna On Camera]
With "Out of Sight", George Clooney proves he has more than the one
expression he wore throughout most of "Batman and Robin" last year. But the self-conscious camera work almost undermines his good efforts and those of his able co-star Jennifer Lopez. "Out of Sight" is based on an Elmore Leonard novel, and is very much in the "Get Shorty" vein.
Clooney is a kind of anti-hero hero. He is Jack Foley, a career bank robber who is charming and clever, but not too clever to stay out of prison. Jennifer Lopez is Karen Sisco, a U.S. Marshall who just happens to be on the scene when Jack is breaking out. Jack and his accomplice, Buddy ( Ving Rhames), have no choice but to toss Karen in the trunk with Jack and take off. In the trunk, a surprisingly cool Karen, and the pleasant bank robber, Jack, hit it off and an unlikely romance begins.
Other than the romance, the movie revolves around a diamond heist planned when Jack and his pals were in prison. Clooney and Lopez manage to make an unbelievable romance at least feasable.
