It's not clear if he has an attorney.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Denver woman accused of shooting at law officers during protests in North Dakota against the Dakota Access oil pipeline has been arrested for violating conditions of her pretrial release.

DENVER (AP) - Lawmakers say Colorado has a growing list of adults with severe disabilities who need services.

But the wait list currently has about 2,900 people on it, compared to the roughly 2,100 people wait-listed in 2015.
