A man came into a Houston auto detail shop and began "randomly shooting," killing a man known to be a customer and putting a neighborhood on lockdown Sunday before being killed by a SWAT officer, police said.
Several people were shot and injured, including a man authorities initially described as another suspect because he was present and armed. Police said later Sunday they were investigating further whether he played any role.
Six others — four bystanders and two police constables — were hospitalized with injuries police said were not believed to be life-threatening, according to NBC News. A union official said the two officers should be OK.
Five people were killed and at least three others were reported missing after heavy rain hammered the Plains states, triggering flooding over the holiday weekend, NBC News reported.
Four bodies were discovered in Washington County, Texas, and another was found Saturday in Travis County, according to emergency services officials. Officials were still searching for three missing people, including a 10-year-old boy who was pulled into the swollen Brazos River.
An 11-year-old Kansas boy was swept away after falling into the fast-moving Gypsum Creek in Wichita.
Other parts of the country were also dealing with wild weather. Tropical Storm Bonnie weakened to a tropical depression, bringing winds up to 35 mph and high surf to the Carolinas and Georgia through Monday.

The use of black boxes to record critical flight data is striking many experts as antiquated, even though technology exists to stream information from an aircraft to a ground computer, according to NBC News.
The system doesn’t continuously send data to ground-based computers, but activates in the event of an abnormal occurrence, sending data to the airline to analyze. The airline can then apply corrective action.
The streaming devices are similar to the hardware used in black boxes on aircraft for decades. In the event of a plane crash, the data transmitted can help searchers pinpoint a specific search location.
The technology hasn’t been widely adopted, mainly because of the cost. FLYHT Aerospace Solutions, a Canadian company, provides an on-demand black box at about $100,000 per plane.

Republican Donald Trump told a motorcycle rally on Sunday that people in the U.S. illegally often are cared for better than the nation's military veterans, without backing up his allegation.
"Thousands of people are dying waiting in line to see a doctor. That is not going to happen anymore," Trump told veterans gathered in front of the Lincoln Memorial as part of the annual Rolling Thunder event, which brings thousands of motorcyclists to Washington each Memorial Day weekend.
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said he won’t rule out the possibility of being Hillary Clinton’s running mate.
"Here we are in California, I'm knocking my brains out to win the Democratic nomination," Sanders said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday. "What happens afterwards, we will see. But right now, my focus is on winning the nomination."
Sanders said California is important to win more pledged delegates than Clinton, but also said he will “do everything I can” to ensure Donald Trump is defeated. The onus, he said, was on Clinton to convince his supporters why they should back her.
"If Secretary Clinton is the nominee, it is her job to reach out to millions of people and make the case as to why she is going to defend working families and the middle [class], provide healthcare for all people, take on Wall Street, deal aggressively with climate change. That is the candidate's job to do."

exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo said the ape appeared to be protecting the child before being shot, NBC News reported.
"I don't know if the screaming did it or too many people hanging on the edge, if he thought we were coming in, but then he pulled the boy down away further from the big group," Kim O'Connor, who shot the video, told NBC station WLWT.
According to the video, Harambe, a Western lowland silverback gorilla, nudged the boy toward him before tugging on the back of his pants. In another video, the gorilla stands over the boy on all fours as onlookers shout in the background.
Cincinnati Fire Chief Marc Monahan said Saturday that first responders saw the gorilla "dragging and throwing the child."
Harambe was fatally shot during the rescue. The boy, whose age was misreported as 4 by authorities, was in the enclosure for more than 10 minutes before he was rescued and was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
