Explosion kills stage manager at Palo Duro Canyon amphitheatre


One person is dead after what was described as an 'explosion' at the Palo Duro Canyon amphitheatre, according to officials at the scene.

The Randall County Sheriff's Office said a 21-year-old stage manager was killed. His or her identity was not immediately released because relatives had not yet been notified.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the fireworks storage building at TEXAS exploded.

The explosion happened at 5:54 p.m. The Sheriff's Office said debris blew up to 300 yards away.

The fire has been extinguished but hot spots remains. Firefighters will remain on scene through the night.

The Amphitheatre houses the famous outdoor musical 'TEXAS'. The musical has been canceled for Friday evening.

Scrutiny of latest round of Hillary Clinton emails begins

WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) -- A new batch of Hillary Clinton's emails from her term as Secretary of State were released Friday, although fewer than expected.

2,206 pages of emails were posted on the State Department's website Friday afternoon. According to the Associated Press, the process of releasing the emails Clinton sent from a private server in her home is going slower because of intense scrutiny for potential sensitive or classified information by intelligence agencies.

Many passages in the newly released documents have been redacted for national security purposes, although Clinton has maintained that she never sent any information from the account that was classified at the time.

Previous batches of emails released in May and June revealed relatively little of substance, but additional emails are expected to be released every month until January.

Clinton's use of the private email server instead of a government email account has drawn heavy criticism from Republicans questioning her honesty, and the periodic release of emails presents a continuing political problem for the 2016 Democratic frontrunner, as polls showmany voters do not trust her.

Clinton's presidential campaign also released a health declaration, copies of tax returns, and other financial records Friday. The statement from her personal physician says a blood clot she suffered between her brain and skull in 2012 has been completely resolved.

According to CNN, the tax returns released Friday include records from 2007 to 2014.

A select congressional committee investigating the 2012 attacks on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya is also examining Clinton's emails, and Republican members have expressed concerns about the possible mishandling of classified material.

The inspectors general for the intelligence community and the State Department said last week that four emails containing classified information were found while reviewing a sample of 40 of Clinton's emails and those "should never have been transmitted via an unclassified personal system."

Clinton has said that her use of the private server was appropriate and legal and she did not use it to transmit classified material.

Reporters were still sifting through the thousands of pages of documents Friday afternoon, but initial reactions focused on some heavily redacted emails:

And Clinton's media relations:

There are also some of the day-to-day details that typified much of the previous email release:

Expect more, and hopefully more significant, information to be revealed as the day goes on.

CPSO arrests man for aggravated burglary, looking for 2nd man

LAKE CHARLES -- Calcasieu Parish deputies responding to a report of a burglary at a motel found a man subdued by his victims and arrested him for aggravated burglary.


Deputies responded to the Sunrise Inn on Highway 90 in Lake Charles for a report of a burglary. 


During the investigation, deputies learned that two men entered a motel room occupied by several people, armed with a handgun and demanding money from them. During the course of the incident, one of the suspects, Traelyn D’Quann Campbell, 19, 2302 10th St., Lake Charles, was overpowered by the victims.


While being disarmed, a shot was fired, however, no one was injured. Once disarmed, Campbell was struck with his own gun and was subdued until deputies arrived. Campbell was treated at a local hospital for numerous injuries to the head.


Campbell was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with 1count of aggravated burglary. Bond was set at $150,000 by Judge Michael Canaday.


A second man, who ran from the motel room, is currently being sought. He is described as a black male with light skin tone, short dreadlocks, approximately 6’0 tall, and weighing 180 lbs.  Anyone having any information about his identity or whereabouts is asked to call lead investigator, CPSO Sr. Sgt. Brent Young, at 491-4563.
