Arkansas police say three people are dead, and eight others were wounded in a shooting at a grocery store. Police responded to the Mad Butcher grocery store in Fordyce, about 70 miles south of Little Rock, after shots were fired Friday morning. The shooter was critically wounded by police and is in custody. Two officers were also injured but had non-life-threatening injuries.        Teamsters Union president Sean O' Brien will speak at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee next month. Former President Trump announced the move Friday saying that O'Brien had accepted his invitation. The influential labor group has yet to endorse a presidential candidate, but O'Brien has requested to speak at both party conventions.        David DePape is being found guilty in state court of attacking Nancy Pelosi's husband with a hammer back in 2022. DePape was convicted in federal court last November for the assault, and on Friday was also convicted on five charges in a California state court. He was found guilty of first-degree burglary, false imprisonment, aggravated kidnapping, and several other charges.        Wall Street is closing with stocks mixed to end the week. Nvidia struggled for a second-straight day, falling more than three-percent. Earlier this week, Nvidia briefly surpassed Microsoft as the most valuable public company.       Americans on either side of the political aisle want civility and an end to partisan gridlock. An Emerson College poll shows nearly seven in 10 voters say the government is so divided, it doesn't serve Americans' best interest. Three-quarters also said that politicians encourage division out of their own self-interest.        A'ja Wilson and Caitlin Clark lead in the first voting returns for the WNBA All-Star Game. Las Vegas Aces star Wilson leads all players with more than 217-thousand votes while Indiana Fever rookie sensation Clark sits at number two with over 216-thousand votes. The game on July 20th in Phoenix will see Team USA take on Team WNBA.
