   KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Two people have died in clashes between protesters and police in the Ukrainian capital Wednesday, according to medics on the site, in a development that will likely escalate Ukraine's two month-long political crisis.
   An Associated Press reporter saw medics declare two people dead near the barricades where police and protesters have confronted each other for three days. Police earlier reported one death, but it was unclear whether that was a separate victim.
   Oleh Bondar, a medic, said the two men died of bullet wounds, but would not specify whether they were rubber or real bullets.
   Police began dismantling barricades near a government district in Kiev on Wednesday morning, but protesters soon pushed them back to their original positions.
   Ukraine's political crisis reached a new phase last week after President Viktor Yanukovych pushed through harsh anti-protest legislation. That prompted street battles at a cordon of riot police and buses near the Ukrainian parliament. Protesters threw rocks and fire bombs and police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets.
   The clashes injured hundreds of protesters and police, but the deaths were likely to stoke anger and cause more people to join the protests and clashes.

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York City medical examiner's office says that human remains found along the East River are those of an autistic teen missing for three months.
 
The office said Tuesday that DNA tests confirm the remains found Thursday are those of 14-year-old Avonte Oquendo. He was last seen walking out of his school on Oct. 4. His disappearance prompted a search that included hundreds of police and volunteers.
 
The medical examiner says the cause and manner of death are pending further study.
 
A teenage girl shooting photos in a Queens park noticed a left arm, leading to the discovery of legs and lower torso. A part of a skull was also later recovered.
 
Authorities made the identification through DNA given by his family.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Officials at Purdue University in Indiana say one person was killed in a shooting at a campus classroom building.
 
   Purdue Provost Tim Sands says he didn't immediately know the identity of the person killed or the person's connection to the university.
 
   Campus police chief John Cox says the suspect is in custody after surrendering outside the Electrical Engineering Building following the shooting about noon Tuesday.
 
   Cox says the person appeared to have targeted the victim.
