Incoming Mexican government now says there is no 'Remain in Mexico' deal on migrants

Mexico denies deal to keep Migrants

The incoming Mexican administration of Andrés Manuel López Obrador now says that there is no deal with the United States that would allow asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases are decided after reports Saturday indicated such an agreement had been reached.

Man shot and killed in Alabama mall shooting "likely" wrong suspect

Alabama mall shooting likely killed wrong man Officials are now saying the man who Alabama police shot and killed after a shooting at a mall near Birmingham "likely did not fire the shots" that wounded two people and sent terrified shoppers running for cover.

Authorities mistakenly thought Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr. fired the rounds that left an 18-year-old and a 12-year-old hospitalized, Hoover police spokesman Capt. Gregg Rector said in a statement.

Police initially said Bradford opened fire after an altercation with the 18-year-old and an officer fatally shot him as he fled the scene. But late Friday, police changed that story, saying that while Bradford was involved in "some aspect of the altercation" and was armed with a handgun, he likely did not fire the rounds that injured the two others.
