RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Volvo is showing off its first car to be made-in-America, even as the economic climate changes radically under President Donald Trump.

(AP) - A judge dismissed a lawsuit against the FBI for a faulty background check that allowed Dylann Roof to buy the gun he used to kill nine people in a racist attack at a South Carolina church. But U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel also blasted what he called the federal government's "abysmally poor policy choices" in running the database for firearm background checks. Roof was sentenced to death in the 2015 shooting.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A man and woman have been found dead in a home in South Carolina and sheriff's deputies say three children were found in the house unharmed. Deputies were called to the home around 7:3 p.m. Tuesday. The victims were identified Wednesday as 31-year-old Daryl Lee Foster and 26-year-old Rickeya Latrice Stroble. The coroner said it appears Foster attacked the woman and then killed himself.
