  Authorities on Monday shot and killed an 18-year-old suspected of killing a Georgia police officer after he was found in a shed near Atlanta.The suspect, Tafahree Maynard, was fatally shot when authorities traced him to a home in an unincorporated area of Snellville, Ga., as part of a manhunt after he was suspected of killing Gwinnett Police Department Officer Antwan Toney, the department wrote on Twitter."One officer deployed a taser, which did not successfully incapacitate Maynard," Gwinnett Police Department said. "Maynard then produced a lawnmower blade and made an aggressive move toward officers. One Gwinnett County Police officer fired shots, striking and killing Maynard."No officers were injured in the encounter and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating the shooting.Gwinnett County Police Chief Butch Ayers said police received a tip about 3 a.m. Monday that Maynard was spotted in a residential neighborhood and 75 to 90 officers responded to establish a perimeter and go door to door in search of the suspect.Ayers added Maynard "was issued verbal commands" to show his hands and come out of the shed, but "failed to comply with the verbal commands" and was shot and killed by an officer standing about five to six feet away."I'd like to say the danger to the community is over," Ayers said.The shooting came two days after Maynard was suspected of fatally shooting Toney after the officer stopped Maynard and 19-year-old Isaiah Pretlow while responding with other officers to a report of a suspicious vehicle parked near Shiloh Middle School on Saturday afternoon.Pretlow was arrested at the scene after fleeing in the vehicle and firing shots at officers before crashing a short distance away.
  Mesut Ozil hit a brilliant strike off of the far post to help Arsenal beat Leicester City on Monday at Emirates Stadium in London.The German striker scored the goal in the 45th minute, tying the score at 1-1 in the Gunners' 3-1 triumph. Ozil dashed down the field, dribbling the ball at a blazing pace before sending a pass to the right side and finding Hector Bellerin.Bellerin immediately sent the feed back into the box for a give-and-go with Ozil. The Gunners star used his first touch to send the ball toward the left post with his left boot. The shot tapped off of the post and bounced into the net, beating a stationary Kasper Schmeichel.Bellerin was on the wrong end of a score in the 31st minute. He made an own goal to give Leicester City a 1-0 advantage. The score stayed tied through the halftime whistle before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored in the 63rd minute and the 66th minute."Mesut is a player that always keeps giving his best and is always surprising everyone and he's a player that we're very grateful and very lucky to have," Bellerin told the team website. "When the team play well with good football and he can find space he's always a killer with his passes and finishes, so for us to have a player like him in the team is very important."Arsenal battles Sporting CP in the UEFA Europa League at 12:55 p.m. on Thursday at Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon, Portugal.
  The Museum of the Bible announced Monday that five of its Dead Sea Scrolls fragments are forgeries, the result of a third-party scientific analysis.The museum, which opened in November in Washington, D.C., said it removed the fragments from display and replaced them with three other fragments also undergoing scientific analysis."Though we had hoped the testing would render different results, this is an opportunity to educate the public on the importance of verifying the authenticity of rare biblical artifacts, the elaborate testing process undertaken and our commitment to transparency," said Jeffrey Kloha, the museum's chief curatorial officer. "As an educational institution entrusted with cultural heritage, the museum upholds and adheres to all museum and ethical guidelines on collection care, research and display."Before it opened in November, the Museum of the Bible's collection came under scrutiny by critics of the collecting practices of Hobby Lobby President Steve Green, who donated some of the exhibits at the museum. The five forged Dead Sea Scrolls fragments were among the items donated by Green, The Guardian reported.The Green family has collected about 40,000 artifacts worth more than $205 million over the past eight years.In May, Hobby Lobby returned thousands of historic artifacts from modern-day Iraq that Green purchased in Dubai and improperly brought to the United States. He paid $1.6 million for 5,500 pieces, including 4,000-year-old cuneiform tablets and stone cylinders, in 2010. The company also agreed to pay a $3 million fine.The Department of Justice found that the company had the tablets shipped to its Oklahoma headquarters, but that the boxes were labeled as containing ceramic tile samples. Green promised more oversight at the time, and blamed the incident on his own inexperience as a collector."We made mistakes, but we've learned from them," he said."Before this, we weren't collectors or museum-goers," Green added. "We didn't know we needed to ask for all this paperwork" to prove provenance.Proving prior ownership of an artwork or artifact is meant not only to verify the authenticity of the piece, but to prevent the sale of looted items.The misstep cast doubt on the veracity of other objects the Green family owns, including some that are on display at the Museum of the Bible.Josephine Dru was the former curator of the Greens' collection of papyri; she left after three years over concerns about how the museum handled the provenance of some manuscripts."The Greens are good people, and they wanted to find important artifacts to study, but the situation may end up hurting some of the scholars and students they wanted to help," she said in November.Museum Director David Trobisch said the museum rejected some donations made by the family over questions of prior ownershipThe museum's board also hired a cultural heritage lawyer to authenticate all items in the collection."We feel like we're paying for the sins of the father," Trobisch said last year.

  A series of storms brought hail, flooding and strong winds throughout Italy, local emergency officials said.Italy's Civil Protection Department issued an orange alert for the entire region of Calabria while a less severe yellow warning was issued for Abruzzo, Calabria, Sicily and Lazio, as the wave of severe weather swept across the country beginning Sunday.Schools in Naples and other towns were ordered to remain closed Monday due to the alert.A hailstorm struck Rome on Sunday, leaving roads covered with chunks of ice that disrupted local traffic, Euronews reported.Heavy storms also caused some drivers in Rome to abandon their vehicles as they were surrounded by rain and hail.The San Sebastiano Basilica also was flooded with more than a foot and a half of rainwater.The Coldiretti agriculture association said the sudden hail storms caused a "a calamity for Italian farming," possibly wiping out the remains of the olive harvest in Lazio.Northern Italy experienced strong winds that knocked down several trees in Milan, while airports in Bologna experienced delays due to poor flying conditions.Sicily's eastern province of Catania also was affected by the storms, bringing heavy rains and flooding to an area that had experienced flash floods earlier in the week.
  President Donald Trump on Monday told reporters the United States will build up its nuclear stockpile "until people come to their senses," days after announcing he was pulling the country out of a nuclear agreement with Russia.Speaking outside the White House, Trump criticized Russia for not adhering to the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which was signed between former President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987. The treaty banned all land-based cruise missiles with a range of between 310 miles and 3,417 miles."This should have been done years ago," Trump said Monday about his decision to withdraw from the INF. "Until people come to their senses, we have more money than anybody else by far. We'll build [the United States' nuclear arsenal] up until they come to their senses."When they do, then we'll all be smart and we'll all stop. And by the way, not only stop, we'll reduce, which I would love to do. But right now, they have not adhered to the agreement."Trump announced Saturday the United States will pull out of the agreement unless other countries quit violating the INF."Russia has violated the agreement. They've been violating it for many years and I don't know why President [Barack] Obama didn't negotiate or pull out," Trump said Saturday. "We're not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and go out and do weapons and we're not allowed to," Trump said. "We're the ones that have stayed in the agreement and we've honored the agreement but Russian has not, unfortunately .... so were going to terminate the agreement."On Sunday, Russia condemned Trump's plan. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said it would be a "very dangerous step.""Apparently, inability and unwillingness to come to terms with us on a sound foundation push certain forces in Washington to encourage the country's leadership to make a decision on a formal withdrawal from the treaty," he said. "This would be a very dangerous step, which, I'm sure, won't be just understood by the international community, but arouse serious condemnation of all members of the world community, who are committed to security and stability, and are ready to work on strengthening the current regimes in arms control."Ryabkov said Russia has strictly adhered to the treaty, and accused the United States of violating its terms and seeking to exit the deal as it "creates problems for pursuing the line towards the U.S. total domination in military sphere."He also referred to efforts by the United States to get out of the deal as "blackmail" with the purpose of achieving concessions from Moscow in international security issues.Ryabkov said Russia would adopt a number of retaliatory measures if the United States continues to unilaterally withdraw from agreements.National security adviser John Bolton traveled Monday to Moscow where he was expected to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russian security adviser Nikolai Patrushev and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
