National Aquarium closing

An aquarium that opened its doors to visitors in 1885 is closing its doors in the nation’s capital. The National Aquarium is closing its Washington location after the last visitors leave today. Officials announced in May that the aquarium must move out of the U.S. Department of Commerce building due to renovations. The 1,500 animals will be moved to other locations, including the National Aquarium in Baltimore. The aquarium’s board says it is exploring ways to maintain a presence in Washington.

Fatal family confrontation

A two-decade family feud came to a violent end when a man shot dead the two home invaders that killed his wife and son, not knowing the assailants included his long-estranged daughter, authorities said Sunday. Authorities said it appears Josephine and Jeffrey Ruckinger planned to murder her family Friday — but it remains unclear what exactly led to the deadly confrontation. Roberta, Frew, 64, was shot by her daughter at point-blank range as she responded to a knock on the door after returning home from dinner with her husband, John, 67, and their son John Jr., 47, authorities said. John Jr. may have attempted to arm himself with a gun, but Jeffrey Ruckinger shot him multiple times in the chest, killing him, police said.
