Four St. Louis Police officers who were shot overnight during protests over the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis are recovering. The officers were standing near a police line when they were hit. Protests in St. Louis were peaceful throughout the day but vandalism and violence broke out as the night wore on.        Washington Episcopal Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde [[ buddy ]] tore into President Trump Monday evening. Budde said she was outraged after the park across the street from the White House was cleared apparently so the president could walk through and pose for a photo, holding a Bible outside St. John's Episcopal Church.        Tennessee National Guard troops called out to keep peace in Nashville laid down their shields at the request of a community activist Monday evening in a powerful moment that's now gone viral. People in the crowd roared their approval as guardsmen put their shields on the ground in front of the State Capitol.        Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is lifting her stay-at-home order and moving the state into phase four of her reopening plan. Outdoor gatherings of up to 100 people are now allowed as long as social distancing requirements can be followed.        The zoo that once belonged to 'Tiger King" Joe Exotic is now the property of his longtime rival. An Oklahoma judge on Monday awarded the zoo to big cat rights activist Carole Baskin's Big Cat Rescue Corporation. Baskin and Exotic feuded for years before he was convicted last year in a plot to have Baskin murdered.        Former Auburn football coach Pat Dye has died. He was 80. Dye restored Auburn football to prominence as the Tigers won or shared four SEC titles with him on the sidelines. He died Monday from complications from kidney and liver failure, and had also tested positive for COVID-19.
