Paris Raid Thwarted Planned Attack On Business District

A French prosecutor says investigators are still trying to determine the identities of the two terror suspects killed during an early morning raid.  Authorities believe the hours-long assault in a Paris suburb disrupted a terrorist attack on the city’s business district.  A woman suicide bomber blew herself up and another suspect was shot by a police sniper early today.  A police dog is among the casualties from the raid.  French police say a seven-year-old Belgian Shepard named “Diesel” was killed by terrorists in the operation.

DC Officials Will Clear Homeless Camp In NW

The homeless who camp out in a grassy area near 26th and “K” streets in Northwest DC will soon have to find a new place to live.  District officials say they will soon move to clear out the tents, which were set up several months ago underneath the Whitehurst Freeway.  It’s unclear when the city will clear out the camp, but officials say they started notifying the homeless late last month.  Many of those who live at the camp say they feel safer there than they would living at a homeless shelter.

Classes Canceled At Maryland College Until Further Notice

Classes are canceled at Washington College on Maryland’s Eastern Shore again today as police search for a student carrying a gun.  The college’s president says an arrest warrant has been issued for Jacob Marberger.  Police say the charges stem from an incident last month in which the 19-year-old displayed a handgun on campus after he had been drinking.  Marberger hasn’t been seen since early Monday when school officials say he went to his home near Philadelphia.  Campus police also say the teen may have been bullied.
