PHOENIX (AP) - A drive-by shooting wounded a federal security officer outside the U.S. courthouse in downtown Phoenix on Tuesday, and a person has been taken into custody, authorities said. The officer was taken to a hospital and was expected to recover, according to city police and the FBI. Jill McCabe, a spokeswoman for the FBI's Phoenix office, said someone has been detained and there's no indication of a further threat to the public. The FBI said it's not releasing more information as it investigates. Police had released a photo of a silver sedan spotted leaving the area. The court security officer works for the U.S. Marshals Service and was struck in their protective vest, said a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly. Court security officers work under the direction of the U.S. Marshals Service but generally are employed by private security companies. Hours after the shooting, a street around the courthouse was closed to traffic, roped off by yellow tape with police officers standing on each corner. Four armed federal officers were talking outside the main entrance to the courthouse, which was still open to the public, according to a court clerk. The shooting came after the weekend ambush of two Los Angeles County deputies who were sitting in their parked vehicle when a man walked up to the passenger's side and fired multiple rounds. The deputies were struck in the head and critically wounded but are expected to recover. The gunman hasn't been captured, and a motive has not been determined. Federal courthouses have been flashpoints for recent violence, but it's not clear who shot the officer in Phoenix or why. In June, a federal security officer was shot and...

The San Antonio Zoo’s answer to the pandemic-spawned slowdown — allowing families to drive along the zoo’s walkways to see the animals — has kept the landmark attraction in business. When officials announced the Drive-Thru Zoo in late April, tickets for the first tours sold out in 90 minutes, said Tim Morrow, the zoo’s president and CEO. Since then, the tours have brought in more than $1 million in revenue. On May 1, opening day, 893 vehicles drove through the zoo, pausing to watch the bears, giraffes and other inhabitants. At that point, the zoo had been closed for six weeks because of stay-at-home orders aimed at stopping the spread of the coronavirus. The 106-year-old zoo was in deep financial trouble, and it furloughed 400 of its 700 workers. The animals’ only visitors were their caretakers. “We’re burning through $300,000 to $500,000 a week to take care of animals and infrastructure, even when we’re closed,” Morrow said. “We’re not like Six Flags. We need to take care of the animals. I tell people all the time, ‘It’s like your pet. You can’t just go on vacation with your pet at home for 10 weeks.’” The zoo remained closed to walk-through visitors from March 14 until May 29. But nearly 21,000 families toured the zoo in their vehicles in May, paying entrance fees of as much as $65. The tours’ success allowed the zoo to bring back all the furloughed employees. Given the Drive-Thru Zoo’s popularity and the public’s ongoing concerns about COVID, officials decided to continue the tours even after the facility reopened to pedestrians. The zoo developed a hybrid model that alternated between vehicles and visitors on foot. For safety reasons, the...
