CASPER, Wyo. (AP) -- Only a handful of students were in a Wyoming community college classroom when a man barged in with a bow and arrow and two knives, and killed the instructor and then himself.
Casper police spokesman Justin Smith says authorities believe "around six" students were in the Casper College computer science class Friday morning when 25-year-old Christopher Krumm, of Vernon, Conn., entered and attacked his father, the instructor.
Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh says Christopher Krumm had first fatally stabbed his father's live-in girlfriend, 42-year-old Heidi Arnold, at the couple's home about two miles away.
Christopher Krumm then went to the college and shot his father, 56-year-old James Krumm, in the head with the high-powered bow and arrow before stabbing himself with a large knife.

MIAMI (AP) -- Officials say the bus that crashed at Miami's airport, killing two people, was carrying 32 people who were part of a group of Jehovah's Witnesses.
Miami International Airport spokesman Greg Chin says he was told by passengers that the large bus was traveling to West Palm Beach for a convention.
Police say most of the passengers on board were elderly, including the two men who died. Three people remained in critical condition.
Federal records show the bus was owned by Miami Bus Service Corp.
Police say the driver was not familiar with the area and entered the airport by mistake before his tall bus smashed into a concrete overhang.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Another major storm moving into Northern California is expected to bring more pouring rain, flooding and additional problems to an area already soaked after two major storms.
Residents of Northern California enjoyed just a bit of a respite, but forecasters say the next storm -- the third in a string of powerful weather systems to hit the region since Wednesday -- is expected to force several rivers over their banks after it arrives this evening.
With rivers and streams already running high and the ground saturated from the previous storms, the National Weather Service has issued flood warnings for both the Napa and Russian rivers, two rivers north of San Francisco with a history of flooding.
Forecasters also issued flood warnings for the Truckee River near Lake Tahoe and the Susan River in Lassen County, as well as the Eel, Navarro and Van Duzen rivers in far Northern California.
A flash flood watch was also in effect for a wide area of Northern California through Sunday evening.

PAULSBORO, N.J. (AP) -- The U.S. Coast Guard says a 12-block evacuation near the site of a southern New Jersey train derailment remains in effect for precautionary reasons.
The agency said Saturday night that crews continue to monitor air quality and collect water samples after seven cars derailed Friday morning near a bridge that crosses Mantua Creek.
The derailment caused a hazardous chemical to spew into the air and sent more than 70 people to an emergency room, none with life-threatening injuries.
Conrail plans to open a center Sunday at the Paulsboro Fire Department to help people who were affected by the accident.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- One worker is dead and another is missing after separate accidents at two coal facilities in West Virginia.
An electrician was killed when he was caught between a scoop and a continuous mining machine Friday morning at the Pocahontas Mine A White Buck Portal in Greenbrier County.
Alpha Natural Resources says the worker was 27-year-old Steven O'Dell of Mount Nebo. He is the state's sixth mining fatality this year.
In the other accident, rescuers were still searching for a bulldozer operator missing after an embankment around a coal slurry pond gave way. Two engineers who also fell in the water were rescued.
That accident happened at the Nolans Run impoundment of Consol Energy's Robinson Run mine in Harrison County.

OAKLAND PARK, Fla. (AP) -- The family of two Florida brothers charged with plotting to support terrorists says that the charges are a misunderstanding and that the men wouldn't hurt anyone.
A man who identified himself as the pair's brother said Saturday that the two had strong family values. The man repeatedly refused to provide his full name to an Associated Press reporter.
Authorities swarmed the quiet, lakefront condominiums near Fort Lauderdale on Thursday and arrested 30-year-old Sheheryar Alam Qazi and 20-year-old Raees Alam Qazi. They are charged with plotting to provide material support to terrorists and to use a weapon of mass destruction. Prosecutors say the two are naturalized U.S. citizens originally from Pakistan.
Federal authorities said the two provided money, property, lodging and communications equipment in a conspiracy to obtain a weapon of mass destruction.
