Two Vancouver police officers shoot domestic violence stabbing suspect

Two Vancouver police officers shot a man who allegedly stabbed his girlfriend at a Rose Village apartment Sunday, according to a statement.

Vancouver police were dispatched at 11:15 p.m. to the 2600 block of T Street for the report of an assault with a weapon.

Vancouver Mall to remodel, new venues to open

Vancouver Mall announced an interior remodeling project Tuesday, as well as opening time frames for a new Chick-fil-A restaurant and a Round1 Bowling and Amusement venue.

Round1 is expected to open before the end of the year, according to the mall. The entertainment venue will occupy 48,300 square feet on the upper floor of the anchor tenant space that was formerly home to Sears. A Hobby Lobby craft supply store opened last month on the lower level.

Investigation finds Vancouver police shooting of homeless man was justified

A prosecutor outside of Clark County, tasked with examining the fatal shooting of a Vancouver man earlier this year by city police, has determined that three officers’ use of deadly force was lawful and justified.

Thurston County Deputy Prosecutor Scott M. Jackson reviewed the shooting at the request of Clark County Prosecutor Tony Golik.

Former Vancouver woman says People of Praise faith group subjugates women

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court has close ties to a charismatic Christian religious group that holds men are divinely ordained as the “head” of the family and faith. Former members of the group, called People of Praise, say it teaches that wives must submit to the will of their husbands.

Federal appeals judge Amy Coney Barrett has not commented publicly about her own or her family’s involvement, and a People of Praise spokesman declined to say whether she and her husband are current members.

Broken water main floods Fort Vancouver Regional Libraries Operations Center

Several services will be delayed over the next few days, and operations will likely be temporarily relocated, following significant flooding Saturday night at the Fort Vancouver Regional Libraries Operations Center.

Contractors caused the flooding when they struck an 18-inch cast iron water main while working at the site of the new Vancouver Innovation, Technology and Arts Elementary School at 1007 E. Mill Plain Blvd., according to the Vancouver Public Works Department.
