Oakland Zoo welcomes inmate

Strip Shooting Suspect Faces Extradition HearingThe man accused in the shooting of an Oakland rapper that led to a fiery crash last month on the Las Vegas Strip and a manhunt that ended at a San Fernando Valley residence faces an extradition hearing Monday morning.
Ammar Harris, 26, is scheduled to appear in Los Angeles Superior Court after his arrest Thursday in connection with the Feb. 21 shooting and crash that left three people dead. Harris was allegedly driving a black Range Rover sport utility vehicle when he fired at least five rounds into a Maserati after an argument at a casino valet area.
Twenty-seven-year-old rapper Kenneth Wayne Cherry Jr., aka Kenny Clutch, was driving the Maserati when he was shot near Flamingo and Las Vegas Boulevard. Cherry's vehicle then crashed into a taxicab, which exploded, killing the driver and the 48-year old passenger.
The Strip was closed for about 15 hours during the investigation. The black SUV was located at an apartment complex two days later before Harris' arrest Thursday at a North Hollywood apartment.
The hearing Monday will determine whether Harris will be extradited to Nevada to face charges.

According to a report, Zas says Valle might take the witness stand in his own defense.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) -- A central California retirement home is defending one of its nurses who refused pleas by a 911 operator to perform CPR on an elderly woman, who later died.
"Is there anybody that's willing to help this lady and not let her die," dispatcher Tracey Halvorson says on a 911 tape released by the Bakersfield Fire Department aired by several media outlets on Sunday.
"Not at this time," said the nurse, who didn't give her full name and said facility policy prevented her from giving the woman medical help.
At the beginning of the Tuesday morning call, the nurse asked for paramedics to come and help the woman who had collapsed in the home's dining room and was barely breathing.
Halvorson pleads for the nurse to perform CPR, and after several refusals she starts pleading for her to find a resident, or a gardener, or anyone not employed by the home to get on the phone, take her instructions and help the woman.
"Can we flag someone down in the street and get them to help this lady?" Halvorson says on the call. "Can we flag a stranger down? I bet a stranger would help her."
The 87-year-old was later declared dead at Mercy Southwest Hospital, officials said.
The executive director of Glenwood Gardens, Jeffrey Toomer, defended the nurse's actions in a statement, saying she did indeed follow policy.
"In the event of a health emergency at this independent living community our practice is to immediately call emergency medical personnel for assistance and to wait with the individual needing attention until such personnel arrives," Toomer said in a written statement. "That is the protocol we followed."
Toomer offered condolences to the woman's family and said a "thorough internal review" of the incident would be conducted.
He told KGET-TV that residents of the home's independent living community are informed of the policy and agree to it when they move in. He said the policy does not apply at the adjacent assisted living and skilled nursing facilities.
