Under investigation: A man is recovering after he was found badly burned at a gas station in Miner. Police say that some sort of crime is involved.

Use of force: Chicago police say an officer shot and injured a man after he pointed a gun at the officer on the city's west side. The suspect is recovering at a hospital and the officers actions will be investigated.
