ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A man accused of fatally shooting a Rochester police officer has been indicted on aggravated murder and other counts. The grand jury indictment against Thomas Johnson III was made public this morning at about the same time he was sent from Strong Memorial Hospital to the Monroe County Jail. Authorities say 32-year-old Daryl Pierson was shot and killed by Johnson September 3rd.

NEW YORK (AP) - Governor Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie have met with U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to discuss ways to secure the region from what they described as a mounting terror threat fueled by Islamic State extremists. The governors emerged from the meeting in midtown Manhattan today saying they would develop a coordinated security plan covering both states.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - The new Miss America says there are more important things for people to worry about than her little red cup. That was the message today from Kira Kazantsev (kah-ZANT'-sev) of New York as many social media users continued to pan her use of a plastic cup during the talent portion of last night's pageant finale in Atlantic City.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A man wanted for an armed bank robbery in New York eluded authorities for four years until they caught up with him while he played at an ultimate Frisbee tournament in Oregon. KVAL-TV says police in Eugene, Oregon, arrested Jahson Marryshow yesterday. The Ulster County sheriff's office says he was indicted in 2010.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons
