 A police officer and father of two shot to death at the hotel in Memphis last night. Police say the officer Timothy Warren was responding to a report of shots fire at a hotel where responders had already found the body of one victim when shots started firing again. Warren was fatally shot and the shooting suspect is now in custody1.

 
And take a look at this video. A speedboat crashes into another boat during a race that happened at a regatta on the Ohio River. It’s happened after another speedboat hit a rescue boat in the same area. Three people were injured in that crash, two of them seriously hurt.
 
The last American drafted to fight in the Vietnam war about to retire. Since Command Sergeant2 Major Jeffrey Mellinger. He’s returning to civilian3 life after 39 years in the army. Shortly after he was drafted in 1972, the US went to an all volunteer force.
 
Yes. It’s become as American as Apple Pie, and today is Nathan’s famous 4th of July, Hot Dog Eating Contest. Senior correspondent Allen Chernoff joining us from the festivities. Now we understand you are saying you gonna actually show us the dog right? This is the secret to the hotdog eating supremacy4?
 
Absolutely. Keiro, I will tell you the mystery of exactly how Joey Chestnut5 was able to consume 68 of these in only ten minutes 2 years ago to set a world championship record. That secret may never be unraveled. It’s beyond man’s comprehension. But I can tell you the secret to competitive eating of hotdog. It’s dry, right? The bun is really dry. That’s the problem. How do you resolve that? You dunk it in water. And it goes right down. It’s very very easy. So you will see these competitors dunking their buns, eating their buns separately from hotdogs in many cases. In some cases, pardon me, in some cases, dunking all together. But it’s all in the dunk. That’s the secret.
 
Allen, nothing like to see you dunk your buns. OK. Big thing to talk about today of course. The women finally getting their own table, right? They had broken the hotdog glass ceiling. This is serious stuff for the females now.
 
Keiro, precisely6, this is a great day for female equality. Finally, a women’s only table and that’s set the plate for Sonia Thomas to actually get her own belt. It’s pink as opposed to the men’s muster7 yellow belt. She’s expected to do it. She holds the world’s record for women. It’s right up there. 41 dogs, so, doesn’t have that much competition we expect to win it. By the way, guess what Sonia Thomas does for living? You will never guess. She’s a Burger King manager which is a champion hotdog eater.
 
This is surprise. I remember interviewing her years ago and she said that it was really tough going on a date, because, you know, she would always outdo the guy at the all you can eat buffet8.
