Over 500 unaccounted for in Colorado

Colorado residents kept a wary eye on the sky as more rain is forecast for Sunday, and with it more fears of gushing rivers and cascading mudslides.

Boulder County officials said up to 4 inches of rain could fall by afternoon, an amount Sheriff Joe Pelle described as "devastating."

Authorities are worried that any additional water on a ground already soaked by up to 15 inches of rain will cause more flooding, and dislodge mud and debris.

Man apparently seeking help killed by police

Police in North Carolina shot and killed a man running toward them Saturday morning - but he may have just been looking for help.

Officers responded to a 911 call of a suspicious man outside a woman's home in Charlotte.

The man had been knocking on her door repeatedly.

Police say that when they got there, a man matching the caller's description ran toward them.

One of the officers pulled out his stun gun, but it malfunctioned. Another officer then opened fire, police said.

Jonathan Ferrell died at the scene. He was shot several times.

He was unarmed.

Police now believe Ferrell was seeking assistance after crashing his car.
