LOS ANGELES (AP) - Homicide detectives are investigating the scene of a gunbattle that wounded two Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies and left a suspect dead. The detectives on Thursday were poring over the site at Salazar Park in East Los Angeles following the shooting Wednesday evening. The gunbattle happened after a report of someone in a car pointing a gun at people led deputies to follow the vehicle. One suspect died, another was taken to a hospital and a third is in custody.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Demonstrators have congregated in a Senate office building to protest Republicans' handling of the sexual-assault accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. A group of roughly 100 people marched to the office of Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Thursday for a sit-in, some with fists raised.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California doctors will have to tell patients if they are on probation for sexual misconduct or other wrongdoing under a new law. Gov. Jerry Brown announced he signed the first-in-the-nation legislation Wednesday. Patients can already find information online about which doctors are on probation if they know where to look. The law authored by Democratic state Sen. Jerry Hill of San Mateo will force doctors to tell patients their probation status and basic details of the terms of their probation.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Guitarist Jorma Kaukonen is reflecting on his life and how, long before he wrote and recorded the Jefferson Airplane classic "Embryonic Journey," he was on a decades-long journey of his own discovery. It began as a globe-circling embassy brat in the 1950s, continued as a psychedelic rock star in the '60s and shows no signs of slowing as the youthful Hot Tuna guitarist approaches 80. He stops long enough to recount much of it in his recent memoir 'Been So Long."
