Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Shots Fired at Kent State, Suspect Caught

KENT, Ohio (AP) - Kent State University says a person suspected of firing a gun on campus has been apprehended, and there's no longer a threat to anyone at the school.
   Campus police say the suspect is in custody at Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna.
   The university posted a notice about the capture on its Twitter page late Wednesday night.
   A Kent State spokeswoman says the male suspect fired the shot into the ground around 9 p.m. Wednesday near the Bowman Hall academic building.
   No injuries were reported.
   The university initially advised people across campus to stay put while police searched for the shooter, who was believe to be carrying a silver handgun.
   The campus was the site of deadly shootings by Ohio National Guard members during a Vietnam War protest in 1970.

Construction Budget Signed


   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A nearly $2.4 billion state construction budget that funds an array of community, school and park projects has cleared the Ohio Legislature.
   The Senate approved the bill on a 30-1 vote. Gov. John Kasich signed it late Tuesday.
   The proposal directs $675 million toward primary and secondary schools and roughly $455 million toward public colleges and universities for repairs and new buildings.
   Local road, bridge, sewer and other infrastructure projects would get $369 million. Another $574 million goes for maintenance, renovation and other projects at state-owned facilities, including parks and prisons. An additional $100 million goes to the Clean Ohio preservation program.
   The proposal includes about $160 million in community projects.
   Kasich's administration estimates that projects funded under the bill would create 31,000 jobs over several years.

Minority Students Slipping Behind

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A new report says black children are faring worse in Ohio than all but five other states.
   An index that compares milestones for kids across racial and ethnic groups shows black, Latino and American Indian children scoring well below whites in every region of the country.
   The index - compiled by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and reported by The Columbus Dispatch - shows just five states, all in the South or Midwest, posting lower scores for black children than Ohio.
   The report looks at how children are faring on milestones that position them for success. It uses 12 indicators, including birth-weight data, reading and math proficiency, and neighborhood poverty.
   The Children's Defense Fund-Ohio called the state's results for black children "dire."
