Deputies of a county clerk in rural Kentucky issued marriage licenses to four gay couples on Friday after she defied a federal judge's orders for months because as a Christian she opposes same-sex unions.

Investigators in northern Illinois on Friday pieced together several videos to build a visual timeline around the fatal shooting of a veteran policeman while a $50,000 reward was offered for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the culprits. Hundreds of law enforcement officers for a fourth day searched the region of Fox Lake, located about 60 miles (97 km) north of Chicago near the Wisconsin border, for three men suspected in the Tuesday's shooting of Fox Lake police Lieutenant Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, 52. The videos come from various sources, including transportation department cameras at nearby traffic intersections, businesses and residences, Lake County Major Crime Task Force Commander George Filenko told a news conference.
More than 10,000 law enforcement officers from across the United States attended the Houston funeral of Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth on Friday, remembering him as good-natured man who brought dignity to the profession. Goforth, 47, was fatally shot on Aug. 28 as he fueled a patrol car at a Houston-area gas station. Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said officers responding to calls for help will be doing so in Goforth's honor.

This week the U.S. Supreme Court declined to grant Davis a stay on a federal judge's injunction that would force her to issue marriage licenses to all comers.
