A Saudi Air Force member opened fire in a classroom building at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida, on Friday morning in an attack that left four dead including the suspect and seven more wounded, authorities said.
Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan said four people had been killed and that two sheriff's deputies were among the wounded but were expected to recover. Officials identified the weapon used in the attack as a handgun.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a press conference that the suspected shooter was a member of the Saudi Air Force in the U.S. for training.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says House Democrats will draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. That's a crucial step toward a vote of the full House. The articles are likely to mostly encompass Democrats' findings on Trump's dealings with Ukraine. They could charge Trump with abuse of office, bribery and obstruction. This is the fourth time in history Congress has moved to impeach a president.
The Supreme Court is preventing the Trump administration from restarting federal executions next week after a 16-year break. The court on Friday denied the administration's plea to undo a lower court ruling in favor of inmates who have been given execution dates. The first of those had been scheduled for Monday, with a second set for Friday. Two more inmates had been given execution dates in January. Attorney General William Barr announced during the summer that federal executions would resume using a single drug, pentobarbital, to put inmates to death.

Elizabeth Warren has spent weeks absorbing attacks from moderate rivals looking to blunt her surging campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Now, as the Massachusetts senator risks losing momentum, she's starting to hit back.
After a Democratic Party fundraiser in Boston on Thursday night, Warren blasted Pete Buttigieg, who is emerging as a leading moderate candidate in the lead-off Iowa caucuses set for Feb. 3. She criticized the South Bend, Indiana, mayor for holding closed-door fundraisers with big donors.
"I think that Mayor Pete should open up the doors so that anyone can come in and report on what's being said," Warren said. "Those doors shouldn't be closed, and no one should be left to wonder what kind of promises are being made to the people that then pony up big bucks to be in the room."

California Rep. Duncan Hunter said he will resign “shortly after the holidays” in a statement made three days after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to misuse campaign funds.
The congressman pleaded guilty to misusing $150,000 in campaign funds for his own personal expenses and acknowledged the finance violations in a brief statement on the steps outside the courthouse before walking away without taking questions.
Take a look back at the key moments from the first House Judiciary Committee Impeachment hearing.
The White House on Friday rejected an invitation to take part in impeachment hearings before the House Judiciary Committee, NBC News reported.
In a brief letter to Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., White House counsel Pat Cipollone sharply attacked the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump as "completely baseless" and said House Democrats had "violated basic principles of due process and fundamental fairness."
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced Thursday that she had asked committee chairmen to craft articles of impeachment against the president.

An attorney told a Los Angeles federal jury Friday it would be reasonable to award $190 million in damages to a British cave explorer who is suing Elon Musk for allegedly branding him as a pedophile during a Twitter spat.
Attorney Lin Wood said the suggested sum includes $150 million in punitive damages.
Musk, who testified his stock in Tesla and SpaceX is worth about $20 billion, contends that he was not being literal when he referred to Vernon Unsworth as a "pedo guy."

Either loudly sing your own praises or don't in the new year, but let's leave the humble brag behind, along with a few other oversaturated, cloying or just plain silly cultural quirks that deserve a big goodbye.
Among them are pop-up shops, cancel culture and the ever-present "OK Boomer" retort on social media. With much ado about something, here's our annual Over It list of things that should remain in 2019:

The Supreme Court on Friday temporarily shielded the bank records of President Donald Trump and three of his children from House Democrats.
In an order signed by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the House cannot enforce subpoenas issued to Deutsche Bank and Capital One at least until Dec. 13.
The justices are scheduled to discuss at least one and maybe two other similar cases at their private conference that day. One concerns a subpoena from the House for Trump's financial records and the other is a demand from the Manhattan district attorney for his tax returns.
Escambia Country Sheriff David Morgan asks everyone to pray for the families of the Navy personnel affected in the Pensacola Naval air station shooting.
Experts on police tactics are defending the Florida officers who opened fire on a UPS truck that had been hijacked by two robbery suspects. They say that while it is tragic that the UPS driver and a nearby motorist died in Thursday's gun battle near Miami, the suspects were firing on the officers and they had to be stopped to protect the dozens of motorists stuck in traffic around the truck.
The suspects also died. The family of UPS driver Frank Ordonez criticized officers, saying they should have pulled back and tried to talk to the suspects.
The U.S. Navy sailor who fatally shot two people at Pearl Harbor before killing himself was unhappy with his commanders and had been undergoing counseling, a military official said Friday.
Gabriel Romero, 22, also faced non-judicial punishment, which is a lower-level administrative process for minor misconduct, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss personnel matters not made public. He used his two service weapons in the attack, the official said.
