Both officers have died.

Fatal fire: The Craighead County Sheriff's Office has confirmed 2 children have died in a house fire in Cash Wednesday morning. Rolland said emergency crews were looking for a third child who went missing at the scene.

To say good bye: Today many will begin to say goodbye to a Chester police officer killed last week in a police chase that ended in a crash. A public visitation will take place for officer James Brockmeyer at Chester high school starting a 3-30.

Looking for a suspect: A group of people wearing bandanas over their faces opened fire Tuesday night on another group at a park in Memphis, killing a 16-year-old girl and wounding five others. The shooting "possibly stemmed from an ongoing disagreement," police said.
