Police investigating whether the killings of four Muslim men in Albuquerque are connected say Sunday they need help finding a vehicle believed to be connected to the deaths. Police say the vehicle sought is a dark gray or silver, four-door Volkswagen with dark tinted windows. A Muslim man was killed Friday night in Albuquerque. Authorities are investigating whether there are connections between that killing and the ambush shooting deaths of three Muslim men over the past nine months in New Mexico’s biggest city. Authorities say they can’t say yet if the shootings were hate crimes until they have identified a suspect and can determine a motive.

A cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian militants has taken effect in a bid to end nearly three days of violence that has killed dozens of Palestinians. Egyptian officials had worked to bring the sides to an agreement after the flare-up of fighting that saw Israeli aircraft pound targets in Gaza and militants fire hundreds of rockets that reached deep into Israel. Rocket fire and airstrikes continued until the scheduled start of the truce at 11:30 p.m. (2030 GMT; 4:30 p.m. EDT). More than 40 Palestinians were killed in the violence, including 15 children and four women. Israel began its offensive Friday and has kept up airstrikes since then, while militants have lobbed barrages of rockets into Israel.

Sheriff’s deputies in North Carolina are investigating a shooting that left a 17-year-old dead and a second person injured early Sunday. The Nash County Sheriff’s Office received a call at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday reporting multiple shooters at a party at a home in Whitakers. Melito Armstrong Jr. was shot in the chest and died. His mother confirmed to WRAL-TV that Armstrong had turned 17 in July. Another victim went to the hospital with a gunshot wound. WRAL reports that deputies believe the shooting was not a random act and the shooters and victims knew each other.

Kentucky Republicans went to the state’s premier political event this weekend intent on winning elections in November and beyond. But some candidates running for governor had a hard time coming to terms with Donald Trump’s defeat in 2020. They gave parsed or tortured responses when asked if Democrat Joe Biden’s victory over Trump was fairly decided. Their tiptoeing was a sign of Trump’s continued hold on many in the GOP in Kentucky and elsewhere. Trump has already weighed in on Kentucky's 2023 race for governor. He endorsed Attorney General Daniel Cameron. Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear is seeking a second term.

A new federal study said dozens of people got sick after visiting a splash park near Wichita, Kansas, last summer. The study by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that 21 people contracted Shigella bacteria and six others became sick with the norovirus after visiting the splash park at Tanganyika Wildlife Park in Goddard. The Wichita Eagle reported that another 36 people reported gastrointestinal illnesses after visiting the splash park but didn’t have lab tests confirming what caused their illnesses. At least four people were hospitalized. Previously, state and local health officials hadn't detailed how many people got sick. The splash park was allowed to reopen last July after upgrading its filtration system and passing a health inspection.
