ELKHART, Ind. (AP) — A man fatally shot two women in a northern Indiana grocery store Wednesday night and was lining up to shoot a third person when police officers found him in an aisle and killed him, authorities said.

Elkhart police received a call about a gunman at Martin's Super Market about 10 p.m. Wednesday, Indiana State Police Sgt. Trent Smith said Thursday.

The 22-year-old man used a semi-automatic handgun to shoot and kill a 20-year-old employee and a 44-year-old shopper, Smith said. The victims' bodies were found about 12 aisles apart. Indiana State Police identified the gunman as Shawn Walter Bair of Elkhart.

Smith said two police officers responding to the scene heard a gunshot as they entered the near-empty store. They dashed to that area and found the shooter pointing his gun at a third person. Smith said the man then aimed his gun at the officers and that's when they shot him dead.

DETROIT (AP) — Texana Hollis, a Detroit centenarian who got her home back in 2012 after being evicted because of foreclosure, has died. She was 103.

Hollis died Dec. 31, according to James H. Cole Home for Funerals, which is handling arrangements. Deborah Hollis-Coburn told The Detroit News that her grandmother died of natural causes in Detroit. Her health had deteriorated in late 2013.

"It meant a lot to her to have the community surround her and support her and love her," Hollis-Coburn, told the Detroit Free Press. "She never expected anything from anybody. She was very, very grateful."

Hollis was evicted in September 2011 after her son failed to pay property taxes linked to a reverse mortgage. Two days later, a federal agency said the 101-year-old could return but then blocked her from moving in after an assessment determined the house was dilapidated.

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio University supervisor has been charged with a felony count of obstructing justice after human bones were stolen from the medical college.

The county prosecutor says 49-year-old Jerry A. Reed is accused of tipping off another employee that he was under investigation for stealing and selling human bones from the school's osteopathic-medicine lab.

Reed oversaw the medical college office that supports integration of health information technology in the classroom. A university spokeswoman says he's been put on paid administrative leave.

The former lab assistant, 28-year-old Weston Henri Moquin, pleaded guilty to selling the bones. His attorney says he did it to support a drug habit.

Online court records listed no attorney for Reed, who is not accused of participating in Moquin's scheme.

Ohio treasurer sells vehicle for $938 after crash

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Campaign finance filings indicate Ohio Republican Josh Mandel  sold a vehicle disabled in a March wreck to an online auction company, skirting a potential insurance review of the vehicle's ownership.

A spokeswoman said it made the most sense to sell the high-mileage 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which went for $938 to Copart Inc. of Dallas.

Mandel, the state treasurer, was in the SUV owned by his U.S. Senate campaign when it crashed near Toledo in March, months after his failed bid to unseat Democrat Sherrod Brown.

Mandel doesn't use state-owned transportation for official business to save taxpayer money. He's prohibited under federal law from using a Senate campaign vehicle for personal use or to run for a different office.

His treasurer campaign paid to rent the SUV in June.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A battle is brewing over who gets to display the Air Force One jet aboard which President Lyndon B. Johnson took the oath of office.

The Austin American-Statesman reports (http://www.statesman.com) the LBJ Foundation raised millions of dollars and planned to build a pavilion by the LBJ Presidential Library to house the VC-137C, a modified Boeing 707 the U.S. Air Force flew to transport U.S. presidents from 1962 until a Boeing 747 variant replaced it in 1990.

The jet is on display at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio. Last week, Republican Rep. Michael Turner of Dayton and Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio wrote to the Air Force secretary opposing the move.

Johnson was sworn in aboard the jet Nov. 22, 1963, after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas.
