One Dead, Two Wounded in Shooting Inside California Costco

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Police Department is gathering evidence and video footage in an administrative investigation into an off-duty officer who shot and killed a man authorities say attacked him inside a Southern California Costco Wholesale warehouse store. Authorities remained tight-lipped Sunday, not responding to requests for comment about what provoked the Friday night confrontation and whether anyone but the officer was armed. Two others were critically injured in the shooting in Corona, which is about 40 miles (64 kilometers) east of Los Angeles. The officer opened fire after Kenneth French, 32, of Riverside, assaulted him without provocation as the officer held his young child, Corona police said Saturday. Bullets struck French and two of his family members, according to police. The officer was the only person who fired shots in the store, police said. Rick Shureih, French's cousin, told The Press-Enterprise that he was a "gentle giant" who was mentally disabled. Shureih also identified the other two victims as French's parents, Russell and Paola French, and said they remained in an intensive care unit Sunday. Authorities have not released their names. French's family is seeking an attorney, Shureih said, and declined to give specifics about his mental condition. French was "non-violent, non-aggressive, non-verbal," his cousin said, and "he has to be pretty much monitored." "He's not the kind to trade words, so I do...

It often causes limb disability and consumes a lot of energy, which is harmful for the growth and survival of commercially important crustaceans. In the present study, we mainly focused on the agonistic behaviour of the Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, which is an important species of the aquaculture industry in Chi...

Inborn errors of metabolism (IEMs) are rare group of genetic disorders comprising of more than 1000 different types. Around 200 of IEMs are potentially treatable through diet, pharmacological and other therapies, if diagnosed earlier in life. IEMs can be diagnosed early through newborn screening (NBS) programs, which are in place in most of the developed countries. However, establishing a NBS in a developing country is a challenging task due to scarcity of disease related data, large population size, poor economy and burden of other common disorders. Since, not enough data are available for the incidence of IEMs in Pakista...

Beyond their important role in hemostasis, platelets play a crucial role in inflammatory diseases. This becomes apparent during sepsis, where platelet count and activation correlate with disease outcome and survival. Sepsis is caused by a dysregulated host response to infection, leading to organ dysfunction, permanent disabilities or death. During sepsis, tissue injury results from the concomitant uncontrolled activation of the complement, coagulation and inflammatory systems as well as platelet dysfunction. The balance between the systemic inflammatory response syndrome and the compensatory anti-inflammatory response regu...
