The prosecutor's office says its review of cases considers factors including burden of proof and likelihood of success at trial.

The injured men were found in a car on Kennedy street northwest, they both been arrested. Conti says the child was not in the car. Before year old had no connection to any other individual or any other people who were involved, the four year old was doing what for you should be doing. And did not deserve to be shot on Kennedy street last night.

"Pfeiffer in Washington. For close to two months, Ukraine has been reclaiming land that Russia occupied early in its invasion. Today, Russian president Vladimir Putin seemed to signal his frustration. He ordered martial law in four Russian occupied territories of Ukraine. The same territories Russia just annexed unilaterally. That move likely signals more restrictions in occupy Ukraine and in Russia itself. And Pierre's Charles maines is in Moscow and has details by Charles. Hi there. What did Putin have to say? You know, we'll put made this announcement in a video addressed to his Security Council, you know, as you note that the headline here was imposing martial law on these lands that he annexed based on the results staged referendums to join the Russian Federation. Those were done in violation of international law, but the thing to remember is that even then, you know, Russia never had full control over these territories and in the weeks since for Ukraine has seized back large portions of land with Russian forces repeatedly withdrawing and even civilians being asked to relocate. And all of this much to Putin's frustration. Let's listen. So here Putin says that what he called regime in Kyiv has refused to recognize the will of the people. Russia carry out these referendum votes and instead of sitting down at the negotiating table, Ukraine keeps fighting. So today's announcement is Putin trying to crush this Ukrainian counter offensive by Tapping even more of his security apparatus and he's doing that by arguing Ukraine is now actually attacking the Russian homeland. Thereby triggering measures like martial law. Practically speaking, what does martial law mean both for Ukrainians in these occupied territories and for Russians? Will Putin essentially tasked his government and security apparatus to come up with ideas to reestablish control over these lands. He's also imposed heightened security levels and regions adjacent to Ukraine, as well as slightly lower ones in Moscow and southern Russia. And all of these moves give the government all sorts of extrajudicial powers. You know, everything from travel restrictions, search and seizure, police can now detain people for up to one month without bringing charges, a forced resettlement. But the key is implementation. For example, right away the Kremlin said they had no intention of sealing the border, but that's far from a guarantee, and certainly not much of one for government critics who already faced an enormous pressure. How are people reacting to this? Well, it's mixed as you might imagine, but let's start with Ukraine, you know, top aid to president volodymyr zelensky, said martial law and these occupied regions really doesn't change much. Key of argues people there were already de facto living in a police state, although it's worth pointing out that you create itself has been under martial law since February. Russian governors say they don't plan to introduce new restrictions, at least not yet, but keep in mind this comes on the back of governors being blamed for a very troubled and unpopular mobilization drive to get additional troops into Ukraine. So perhaps the local authorities are sensitive to that. And yet in a more worrying sign, nationalists who increasingly seem to have Putin's ear when it comes to Ukraine or cheering the news. For example, ramzan kadyrov, the strongman head of the Chechen republic, took to social media to say this was an excellent and long awaited move. And he's among a group that seems to argue that the only way Russia can win this conflict is by getting tougher and increasingly that looks to me not only with its military campaign against Ukraine, where we've seen all these recent intense bombardments of Ukrainian cities. But also in Russia, now with a further crackdown on perceived enemies at home. That's NPR's Charles maines and Moscow Charles, thank you for covering this for us. Thank you. Today, New York City opened a temporary emergency shelter to house and care for hundreds of migrants arriving daily on buses from the border. A record number of Venezuelan migrants have fled to the U.S. this year, and we have an update now about one of them. We first met Jose albinos about a month ago, when he had just crossed the Rio Grande into Texas, and he came face to face with a local rancher. I'm exhausted, he said. Adding that he had started walking at three in the morning. Albert nose turned himself in to the border patrol. A few days later, he was released into the U.S., and now like many Venezuelan migrants, he finds himself in a kind of legal limbo. And pierce Joel rose picks up the story from here. Jose albornoz has only been in the U.S. for a few weeks, but things have been happening fast for him. His original plan was to head to New York and meet up with a friend from Venezuela. But when he got there, his friend had lined up construction jobs for both of them in Montana. He said, yeah, let's go. I came here to work. When you arrive here, you're lost, he says. We land in a completely unknown world. Albert knows is trying to make sense of where he is. He doesn't have a work plan, but he does have permission to be in the U.S. temporarily, which protects him from deportation. I'm undocumented, he says, but I'm not illegal. This immigration purgatory, lawfully present, but not able to work legally, is where tens of thousands of Venezuelan migrants now find themselves. They've been released into the U.S. with a notice to appear in immigration court or instructions to check in with ice when they get to their destinations. But the next steps, those are not so clear. They're not getting the things that they need their information that they need. They don't know their rights. You know, they don't even know how to get around the city.

After about 50 Venezuelan migrants arrived unexpectedly on Martha's Vineyard last week, there's been a lot of talk about who brought them there. Republican governors shipped them another migrants around the country on planes and buses. Those migrants are part of a broader shift that's happening at the southern border, a shift that has big implications for the entire U.S.. And PRS Joel rose and Marisa penguin also recently traveled to South Texas and they're here to tell us about what they learned. Good to have you both here. Hi. Thank you. Joel, what is this shift at the border? And how does it connect to the buses and planes full of migrants? These migrants are coming from all over the hemisphere, increasingly from Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua. And where they're crossing is changing too. A remote stretch of South Texas has become one of the busiest sections of the entire border, around the border towns of Del Rio, and Eagle Pass Texas. In many cases, it's these migrants who are then being bused to New York and Washington D.C. in Chicago. And we also know that some of these migrants were flown to Martha's Vineyard after crossing the border around Eagle Pass because they say so, and their lawsuit against Florida officials. All right, well, the two of you went there. You spent time in one of these remote stretches of border, near Eagle Pass. Marisa, take us there. What'd you find? Sure. So this story begins on a ranch outside Eagle Pass, a border town a little more than two hours from San Antonio. Often migrants cross here in groups, sometimes hundreds at a time, or sometimes it's just a few families together. So it's pretty unusual when we see migrants crossing alone. That is how we meet Jose albornoz. Under the blistering sun of South Texas, all alone, dripping wet and muddy on the U.S. side of the river. Venezuela. We're on the land of Louis valderrama.
