The suspect, Noel Chambers, also injured his adult daughter during a domestic violence incident, according to police.

No. 2 - It's a wrap for Ultra Music Festival. This year got off to a rocky start because of its new location in Virginia Key. Miami Police say they will give an update on the music festival including how many arrests over the weekend were attributed to the event.

No. 3 - Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Sunday announced a 30-day plan to ration electricity following nationwide power cuts that have inflicted misery on millions of people and ignited protests, including one near the presidential palace in Caracas.

The rationing plan will help deal with the outages that have also cut off water supply and communications for days at a time.

No. 4 - The man accused of killing a woman who got into his car thinking it was her Uber ride had turned on the child locks in his backseat so the doors could only be opened from the outside, police in South Carolina say.

Columbia Police Chief Skip Holbrook also said investigators found the victim's blood in Nathaniel David Rowland's vehicle. Rowland, 24, was arrested and charged in the death of 21-year-old Samantha Josephson of Robbinsville, New Jersey.

No. 5 - Rapper Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed outside his clothing store in the Hyde Park neighborhood of South Los Angeles Sunday, while two other people were also injured, sources told NBC Los Angeles.

The shooting occurred at approximately 3:20 p.m., Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department said. Lopez said that it was an ongoing investigation, no one had been detained and the suspect or suspects remained at large.

No. 6 - It's April Fools Day and some businesses are skipping the silly pranks this year like Microsoft, as its marketing chief warned all employees not to participate in any stunts. With that, be on the lookout for pranks from other companies today!
