Hill, 47, was shot and killed by Adam Coy, a 44-year-old white man, on Dec. 22. Coy, a 19-year-veteran of the Columbus police force, was responding to a non-emergency nuisance call about car noise. Footage from Coy's body-worn camera showed Hill emerging from the shadows of the garage holding up a glowing cell phone in one hand before Coy opened fire on him.
DETROIT (AP) — Kris Bryant hit a two-run homer in the third inning, and the Chicago Cubs went on to a 4-2 victory over the Tigers, snapping Detroit's four-game winning streak Friday night. Jake Arrieta (4-3) faced the minimum number of hitters until the bottom of the sixth, when Detroit's Jake Rogers and Robbie Grossman hit consecutive home runs with two out. That was all the scoring for the Tigers, who entered the night with the second-worst record in baseball, percentage points ahead of Minnesota. Tarik Skubal (0-6) allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings. Joc Pederson had three hits for the Cubs, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Arrieta allowed two singles and a walk through the first five innings, but each of those baserunners was immediately erased by a double play. He was taken out after the sixth. Three Chicago relievers went an inning apiece. Craig Kimbrel struck out of the side in the ninth for his seventh save in eight chances. Bryant opened the scoring with his 10th homer of the season, and the Cubs added two more runs in the fifth. Anthony Rizzo hit an RBI double, and Javier Báez made it 4-0 with a run-scoring single. Arrieta was activated from the injured list before the game. He had been sidelined by a right forearm strain. He allowed seven runs in 3 1/3 innings in his previous start, April 30 at Cincinnati. TRAINER'S ROOM Cubs: RHP Dan Winkler (right triceps tendinitis) and infielder Nico Hoerner (left forearm strain) also were activated from the IL. Hoerner went 0 for 4. RHP Jason Adam, LHP Brad Wieck and OF Nick Martini were optioned to Triple-A Iowa. UP NEXT Chicago sends RHP Trevor Williams (2-2) to the mound Saturday against José Ureña (1-4) of the Tigers. ___ Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtrister ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Noah Trister, The Associated Press
A Venezuelan court on Friday seized the headquarters of the El Nacional newspaper, after it failed to pay a $13 million defamation award to top socialist party official Diosdado Cabello, both Cabello and the paper's leaders said. Venezuela's Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) last month issued the award, which stems from a 2015 lawsuit Cabello - a lawmaker and vice president of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela - filed against El Nacional after it reprinted a Spanish newspaper article asserting U.S. officials were investigating Cabello for alleged ties to drug trafficking.
