NEW YORK (AP) — A man says his 86-year-old grandfather shot him in the head, killed his girlfriend and then took his own life out of frustration that the couple was living in a family home in New York City.

Michael Feliciano spoke to the Daily News from his hospital bed for a story published Sunday.

Police say Feliciano's grandfather, Heriberto Pagan, unleashed the gunfire on the couple and himself Friday.

The 47-year-old Feliciano and his 28-year-old girlfriend, Claritle Huerta, were living in a Staten Island home owned by Feliciano's ailing mother. Feliciano says his grandfather wanted them out because of Feliciano's past drug problems.

He says Huerta called him Friday to tell him his grandfather wanted to talk to him. He says he opened the door, "and that was it."

The couple's 4-month-old son was found unharmed inside the house.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - The teen gunman who fatally shot a fellow student at his suburban Denver high school earlier this month entered through a door that was propped open.
 
Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Monday that the Arapahoe High School door is supposed to be locked but was frequently left open. If it had been locked, Robinson thinks 18-year-old Karl Pierson, armed with a shotgun, machete and over 100 rounds of ammunition would have just have found another way inside.
 
Pierson shot senior Claire Davis point-blank in the face soon after entering through the open door. Investigators believe his main target was a speech team coach who had disciplined him but also say he likely wanted to hurt many others. He killed himself as a deputy assigned to the school closed in.

Police: Yale campus safe, no gunman found

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - New Haven authorities say they have not found a gunman on Yale's campus and are leaning toward a call warning of an armed man heading to shoot up the school being a hoax.

New Haven Police Chief Dean Esserman said at a news conference Monday afternoon that New Haven and the Yale campus are both safe.

A lockdown remains in effect on the Old Campus as police search rooms to confirm that no gunman is on campus.

There have been no reports of shots fired or anyone injured and no arrests have been made.

New Haven police Officer David Hartman says an anonymous caller from a pay phone nearby told them his roommate had a gun and was heading to the campus.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - School officials say three people were shot in or near a Pittsburgh high school, and police are searching for a gunman.

Pittsburgh school district spokeswoman Ebony Pugh says three students were shot outside Brashear High School on Wednesday afternoon as they walked to a vehicle they'd all taken to school earlier in the day.

She says their injuries appear to be non-life-threatening. Two were grazed in the head and one was shot in both the foot and arm.

Pugh says the victims were not on school property but close by. It's not clear who shot them.

STEELVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri judge has found probable cause for the second-degree murder trial of 59-year-old James Crocker, accused of killing a man on a float trip who stopped on or near Crocker's property.

Crocker, of Steelville, is charged in the death of 48-year-old Paul Dart Jr. Crawford County Associate Circuit Judge Scott Bernstein heard more than an hour of testimony Friday before ruling the case should move forward.

The shooting happened in July after Crocker spotted people from a Meramec River float trip party on a gravel bar that Crocker considered part of his property. Dart was shot in the face during the confrontation.

Defense attorney Michael Bert says Crocker was protecting himself and his property, and felt threatened by rock-wielding members of the float party.
