Police: Man Killed By Officer Pointed Vaping Device:

For a second consecutive night, protesters gathered Wednesday in El Cajon, California, holding signs and demanding accountability following an officer-involved shooting of an unarmed black man.

Alfred Okwera Olango, 38, pulled a vape smoking device from his pocket and pointed it at police before one officer fatally shot him and another discharged a Taser, El Cajon Police said.
His death set off demonstrations in the San Diego suburb as activists demanded that authorities release video of the shooting. They also want a federal probe into Olango’s death.
Some protesters threw water bottles at police while others gathered in the street and parking lot where the shooting happened. Many held signs saying “black lives matter” as police wearing helmets with shields looked on.

SC Shootings: Suspect Allegedly Called Grandparents Before Opening Fire:

A minute before a teen allegedly opened fire at an elementary school playground in South Carolina, he called his grandparents’ cellphone, sobbing and mumbling unintelligibly, authorities say.

It was 1:44 p.m. local time.
His grandparents could barely hear the 14-year-old because of his crying, CNN affiliate WYFF reported. So they headed next door, where he lived, to check on him.

Michelle Obama Goes Off On Donald Trump:

First Lady Michelle Obama tore into Donald Trump Wednesday, telling Hillary Clinton supporters, “We need an adult in the White House.”

“When making life-or-death, war-or-peace decisions, a president can’t just pop off or lash out irrationally,” she said on behalf of the Democratic presidential nominee at La Salle University in Philadelphia. “We need an adult in the White House. I guarantee you.”
Obama criticized Trump over his spreading of the birther conspiracy theory, continuing a rebuke she first made earlier this month while stumping for Clinton in Virginia.

Congress Passes Bill To Avoid Government Shutdown:

Congress cleared a bill Wednesday to fund the government and the federal response to Zika, avoiding a potentially embarrassing government shutdown just weeks before the election.

The House and Senate approved the measure — which would fund federal agencies through December 9 — with just two days before federal agencies were set to run out of money.
Once leaders resolved the final sticking point — finding a mechanism to approve money for the city of Flint, Michigan, after its water system was contaminated with lead — members of both parties were eager to wrap up votes and head home to campaign in the final sprint to the November election. Once bipartisan leaders agreed to add an amendment to a separate water infrastructure bill earmarking funds for Flint there was quick agreement to approve the spending bill.
