By Patrick Fallon EL CAJON, Calif. (Reuters) - Authorities on Friday released two videos of police shooting an unarmed black man dead in El Cajon, California, but the grainy footage, much of it without sound, was not likely to pacify community outrage over the incident. Police and prosecutors said an investigation was still under way into the fatal shooting on Tuesday of Ugandan-born Alfred Olango, 38, and that no decision had been made on whether to criminally charge the officers involved. "This is as difficult a situation as any law enforcement officer will ever encounter and it's one we never seek," El Cajon Police Chief Jeff Davis told a news conference.
By Alexandria Sage SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California will allow companies more leeway in testing self-driving cars on public roads while restricting how the nascent technology is advertised under revised draft regulations released on Friday. The original draft regulations by the Department of Motor Vehicles were criticized by some tech companies, such as Alphabet Inc's Google, and carmakers as being overly restrictive and stifling innovation. California has been at the forefront of the fast-growing autonomous vehicle industry, fueled by technology companies in Silicon Valley, and is one of a handful of states to have passed regulations enabling self-driving car testing on public roads.
By Rebekah Kebede KINGSTON, Jamaica (Reuters) - Hurricane Matthew weakened slightly on Saturday as it headed toward Jamaica and Cuba, but with winds reaching 155 miles per hour (250 kph) forecasters said the storm was still powerful enough to wreck homes as islanders braced for its arrival. Matthew, the strongest hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean since Felix in 2007, was forecast to make landfall as a major storm on Monday on Jamaica's southern coast, home to the country's capital, Kingston, and its only oil refinery. It could also affect tourist destinations such as Montego Bay in the north.
Texas businessman Sam Wyly has agreed to pay $198.1 million to resolve claims by U.S. securities regulators that he engaged in a long-running securities fraud to hide trades in companies he controlled using offshore trusts, according to a court filing. According to papers filed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday in Manhattan federal court, Wyly is also in talks to resolve tax claims by the Internal Revenue Service after he was ordered to pay $1.11 billion. The settlement is subject to approval by SEC commissioners and a federal bankruptcy judge in Dallas, where the once-reported billionaire filed for Chapter 11 in 2014 amid the SEC's pursuit for monetary sanctions.
