An FBI official says both robbers were shot and killed, and the fourth victim was in a nearby vehicle when shots rang out at a crowded intersection in Miramar on Thursday.


The incident began about 20 miles south during a robbery at a Coral Gables jewelry store. It was not immediately clear who fired the shots that killed the UPS driver or the bystander.

Big increase in female hunters seen in Wyoming

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The number of Wyoming hunting and fishing licenses sold to women has seen a marked increase over the past decade, while men are buying slightly fewer licenses, state officials said.


The Wyoming Game and Fish Department said 30% more women are hunting in Wyoming compared to 10 years ago, KGAB-AM report ed. Female anglers increased by 14% over that time.


Meanwhile, the number of men participating in both activities is down by about 5%.


Game and Fish Hunter and Angler Participation Coordinator Kathryn Boswell said the agency has been reaching out to women to get them more involved in not only hunting and fishing but also things like canoeing, photography, shooting sports and archery.


“I think women are starting to see hunting as an activity that is accessible to them,” Boswell said in a statement by the agency. “And, it comes with a certain pride in putting healthy food on the table and knowing exactly how it got there — something I think all hunters regardless of gender can relate to.”


Boswell also said the decline in male hunters and anglers in the state is not a concern.


''The demographics are changing. Our baby boomers are getting older and at the same time, women are seeing hunting and fishing as options for their food and recreation choices,” she said.
