ROSEVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Investigators are working around the clock to learn why a man with no apparent ties to terrorism drove a flaming minivan loaded with propane tanks through the main gate of a major Northern California Air Force base. FBI agent Sean Ragan said Hafiz Kazi died Wednesday evening shortly after barreling through the main gate of Travis Air Force Base and crashing. Ragan says Kazi did not leave behind a manifesto or any threats or explanation.

SAN LORENZO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a San Francisco-Bay Area teen was arrested after police found a loaded handgun in what's believed to be the boy's backpack while school was in session. The Alameda County Sheriff's Department says concerned students at Arroyo High School in San Lorenzo reported a rumor to school officials that the 15-year-old student had a gun. The department says officers quickly found the student in class and arrested him after finding the semi-automatic handgun.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Federal officials aren't saying if they knew a Nebraska company hired to build an $11 million section of border wall in California has ties to a firm with a dubious performance record. The top Democrat on the House Committee on National Security is seeking answers on what vetting was used last year to select SWF Constructors for the job. It's an offshoot of a New York firm repeatedly sued by the government and contractors.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Demonstrators broke at least one car window, doused a bystander with drinks and blocked busy downtown Sacramento thoroughfares in a second day of protests of the officer-involved killing of an unarmed black man. The Sacramento Bee reports that Friday's protests grew unruly and sometimes violent. In the afternoon, about 200 protesters confronted drivers struck in traffic, breaking the rear window of one car as it tried to make it through the throng.
