When rookie police Officer Peter Liang fired his gun in a pitch-dark public housing stairwell, he at first thought he had hurt nothing but his career. Then he went looking for the bullet and heard someone crying. He followed the sound down three flights and saw a man lying wounded and a distraught woman bending over him, Liang said Monday at his manslaughter trial in the 2014 death of Akai Gurley, who was unarmed. "I said, 'Oh, my God, someone's hit!" Liang recalled as he gave emotional testimony. His lawyers say the shooting was an accident, not a crime. But prosecutors and Gurley's loved ones say Liang handled his weapon recklessly and did nearly nothing to help Gurley after realizing the bullet had hit someone.
Chipotle restaurants across the U.S. are opening later than usual Monday as workers gather in movie theaters and hotel conference rooms across the country to discuss the chain's recent food safety scares.
The company says stores will open at 3 p.m. in their local time zones, which is after the typical lunch hour rush. Stores typically open at 11 a.m.
Chipotle announced Monday that it will offer free burritos to customers who missed out on lunch at the chain during those hours.
"You're in luck, text 'raincheck' to 888-222," a message read on the company website. "If we messed up your lunch plans today, follow the steps and we'll hook you up."
Chipotle said it will text customers back with a coupon for a free burrito within the next few days.

A spokesperson for the Swiss Federal Ministry of Justice told NBC News that a man from the Gambia was arrested Thursday at a refugee center in Kreuzlingen, a town around 20 miles from the Austrian border.
Neither Swiss nor the Austrian authorities would identify the suspect to NBC News.

If this was the final game of his magnificent career, what a Super way to go out for Peyton Manning. He can thank Von Miller and the Broncos' swarming, big-play defense for his second NFL championship. Adding that ring to his five MVP awards, Manning certainly can be satisfied and comfortable in retirement should Sunday's 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers be his finale. "I'll take some time to reflect," Manning said when asked if Super Bowl 50 is the end. "I got a couple priorities first. I'm going to go kiss my wife and my kids. ... I'm going to drink a lot of Budweiser tonight. Take care of those things first."

At least four people, including an 8-year-old girl, were rescued Monday from a high-rise Taiwanese apartment building toppled by a powerful quake two days earlier, as frustration grew among families waiting for searchers to reach their buried loved ones.
More than 100 people are believed to still be under the debris in a disaster that struck during the most important family holiday in the Chinese calendar — the Lunar New Year.
Saturday's quake killed at least 38 people in Tainan city in southern Taiwan, all but two of them in the collapse of the 17-story building. Even though the 6.4-magnitude quake was shallow, few buildings were reported to have been damaged, which experts said was because Taiwan's building standards are high.
An FBI agent testified that cell tower data records originally entered into evidence in the trial of a convicted killer at the center of the popular podcast "Serial" were accurate, as was testimony from an AT&T radio frequency expert.
Agent Chad Fitzgerald took the stand Monday to finish testimony he began last week in a hearing for Adnan Syed, who was convicted in 2000 of murdering his high school girlfriend Hae Min Lee. The hearing will determine whether Syed deserves a new trial.
Syed's attorneys have argued that his lawyer was ineffective because she didn't contact an alibi witness, and that cell tower data presented to jurors was misleading.
