NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) - Thunderstorms near the southern Arizona border have knocked down part of the metal border fence that divides the U.S. and Mexico. Officials say the storms in Sonora, Mexico, began Friday, and runoff water led about 60 feet of border fence to fall near Interstate 19 in Nogales. Agents are guarding the area while the fence is rebuilt.

PHOENIX (AP) - A jury has convicted a 40-year-old man of murder in the 2007 shooting death of a Glendale police officer during a traffic stop. Authorities say the shooting occurred after Bryan Hulsey exited the vehicle that had been pulled over for speeding and not having a license plate. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The federal government has come up with a final version of a rule meant to cut haze-causing emissions from the largest coal-fired power plant in the West. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's decision reflects a compromise by tribal and federal officials, environmental groups and the owners of the Navajo Generating Station, which is on track to shut down in 2044.

CAMP VERDE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities are searching for a man who escaped from the Yavapai County Jail by hoisting himself atop a basketball hoop, grabbing on to an overhead security fence and pulling it apart. The sheriff's office says Wade Dickinson was a known flight risk, but no one was directly supervising him when he escaped from a recreation yard on July 12.
