Los Angeles Times

Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County amphitheater where Donald Trump held a rally Thursday night, stomping on cars, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully declaring their opposition to the Republican presidential candidate. Traffic came to a halt as a boisterous crowd walked in the roadway, some waving American and Mexican flags. At one point, a demonstrator stomped on a police cruiser, its windows smashed to pieces. "Dump the Trump," said one sign. "I'm protesting because I want equal rights for everybody, and I want peaceful protest," said 19-year-old Daniel Lujan, one of hundreds in a crowd that appeared to be mostly in their late teens and 20s.

Los Angeles Times

Reports of shots fired at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday night led to evacuations, grounded flights and some frightening moments for fliers before the reports were later determined to be unfounded. "At this time, no firearm, rounds or shell casings or other evidence of shots fired has been found," said Joe Pentangelo, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department. Police evacuated Terminal 8 as a precaution after receiving reports of shots fired near the departure area about 9:30 p.m. Sunday. The New York Police Department was called in to assist. A short time later, police closed Terminal 1 after they received reports of shots fired in that terminal.
