Boy kills four and wounds one in Utah’s worst mass shooting since 2007 | US news | The Guardian

After first homicides in Grantsville for 20 years, Utah governor says: ‘Parents and grandparents, secure your firearms!’

A boy armed with a gun killed three children and a woman in a Utah home then accompanied a fifth victim to a hospital where he was arrested, police said on Saturday.

Police were trying to piece together what happened leading up to the shooting in Grantsville on Friday night. Investigators believed the victims were all related.

“We’re trying to make certain that we verify people’s relationships among the deceased and the survivor,” Grantsville police Cpl Rhonda Fields said. “As for motive, we don’t have any of that.”

People ‘unaccounted for’ after volcano erupts in New Zealand – BBC News

A volcano has erupted in New Zealand with 100 people in the vicinity – leaving some unaccounted for, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said.

Tourists were seen walking inside the rim of the White Island crater just moments before the eruption.

The local mayor told New Zealand media she feared there had been injuries.

White Island, or Whakaari, is off the coast of North Island – and is one the country’s most active volcanoes.

Despite that, the island is a tourist destination with frequent day tours and scenic flights available.

A live feed from the volcano showed a group of visitors inside the crater before images went dark after the eruption.
