2 Seattle police officers shot; one suspect dead

**Embargo: Seattle, WA** Two Seattle police officers were shot Thursday while responding to a robbery at a 7-Eleven convenience store.

Two Seattle police officers remain in the hospital after exchanging gunfire with robbery suspects on Thursday at a 7-Eleven convenience store.

One suspect is dead and two others were arrested, the Seattle Police Department said in a statement.

The incident unfolded Thursday afternoon with a reported armed robbery at the convenience store. As officers responded, a female suspect hit one of the officers on the head with a bottle and another suspect ran into a building, barricading himself inside, Seattle Police spokeswoman Carmen Best said at a news conference.

While barricading himself, the suspect shot at police, Best said. It is unclear if he was the only shooter. Two officers, one male and one female, were shot and a third officer sustained a hand injury during the incident.

The female officer’s bulletproof vest protected her and she suffered minor injuries and is listed in satisfactory condition; the male officer was hit in the face and is in serious but stable condition at Harborview…

  5. Overlooked Drug Could Save Thousands Of Moms After Childbirth

    Peconicpublicbroadcasting.org - New York (NY)
    Back in the 1960s, a woman doctor in Japan created a powerful drug to help mothers who hemorrhage after childbirth. The medicine is inexpensive to make. Safe to use. And stops bleeding quickly by helping keep naturally forming blood clots intact. The drug's inventor, Utako Okamoto , hoped the drug called tranexamic acid would be used to help save moms' lives. Every year about 100,000 women around the world die of blood loss soon after a baby is born. It's the biggest cause of maternal…

    The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood is one of a handful of dystopian novels that have seen a boost in sales since the 2016 election. The book tells the story of what happens when a theocratic dictatorship takes over the government and gets rid of women's rights. In 2016, Atwood told us that the idea started as a question: "If you want women to go back into the home, how do you make them do that? And the method I proposed in 1985 was, now that we have credit cards, it's very easy to just…
  8. Dueling Rallies Rack Caracas After Death Toll Inches Toward 30 In Venezuela

    Peconicpublicbroadcasting.org - New York (NY)
    It has been just under a month since dissatisfaction with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro erupted into massive protests — but if Wednesday's street skirmishes in Caracas are any indication, the unrest is unlikely to end soon. Nearly 30 people have been killed in the demonstration since the end of March, when the pro-Maduro Supreme Court tried to nullify an opposition-dominated legislature — but then quickly backpedaled. Opposition leaders announced three of the deaths Wednesday, acc…
