The convicted felon who pointed an assault rifle at the Union Gospel Mission last week says he carries the firearm to "clean up the streets."

Dad news
You may have seen the Spokane Craigslist ad looking for a "generic father figure" for an upcoming BBQ. The Spokesman-Review talked to the group responsible for the post, which has gone viral; they say there's now one more requirement, other than being able to "talk about dad things, like lawnmowers, building your own deck, Jimmy Buffett." The generic father figure actually must be Bill Murray.

Murder trial set to begin
The trial of a suspected serial killer who allegedly murdered three women in 1990 starts Friday. The accused killer, Donna Perry, was Douglas Perry before undergoing gender reassignment surgery in 2000. (KXLY)
