CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — SpaceX’s new crew capsule has arrived at the International Space Station, acing its second milestone in just over a day. No one was aboard the Dragon capsule launched Saturday — only a test dummy. But the three station astronauts had front-row seats as the Dragon neatly docked Sunday morning and became the first American-made, designed-for-crew spacecraft to visit in eight years ago. If the six-day demo goes well, SpaceX could launch two astronauts this summer.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A California prosecutor is being criticized for his decision not to file charges against Sacramento police officers who killed an unarmed black man nearly a year ago. The fiancee of the man says it continues a “shameful legacy” of officers killing black men without consequences. A tearful Salena Manni also criticized the district attorney for bringing up the domestic violence complaint she filed against Stephon Clark. The prosecutor says that may have been a factor in the shooting.

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — President Donald Trump let loose in a more than two hour speech Saturday, denouncing Democrats, complaining he doesn’t get credit for his achievements and predicting an even bigger victory in 2020. Trump spoke before the Conservative Political Action Conference in suburban Washington. He revisited many of his long-held grievances, capping a week that saw his nuclear summit with North Korea’s leader collapse without an agreement and other disappointing developments.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The United States and South Korea are offering an olive branch to North Korea after the breakdown of the recent summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Springtime military exercises that North Korea has viewed as an invasion rehearsal are being eliminated and replaced with smaller drills. The decision has been announced by both the U.S. and South Korea as part of efforts to support diplomacy aimed at resolving the North Korean nuclear crisis.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police say the man arrested in a deadly crash that killed two people is believed to have been impaired at the time. In a news release, a police spokesman identified the suspect as 32-year-old Tashonty Toney and said he is a police officer’s son. Cunningham says that will not change the department’s investigation, which he said will be “open and transparent.” According to the news release, Saturday was Toney’s birthday. Police are awaiting the results of a blood alcohol test.
