PHOENIX (AP) - A hearing is scheduled in a challenge of the home addresses listed by Congressional District 2 candidate Ann Kirkpatrick on her nominating petitions. The hearing Monday stems from a lawsuit that alleges Kirkpatrick lives in Phoenix, even though she listed two Tucson addresses on nominating documents. The lawsuit seeks to bar Kirkpatrick from appearing on the ballot. The Kirkpatrick campaign has called the lawsuit's claims baseless.

MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Mesa police say a man who may have been armed with a BB gun is dead after being shot by an officer. They identified the man as 53-year-old Michael Fletcher. Police say officers responded to a 911 hang-up call from a residential area about 5 p.m. Saturday and encountered a man and a woman.

MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Police in a Phoenix suburb say a self-driving Waymo vehicle was among five cars involved in a collision, but no serious injuries were reported. The driver of the Waymo vehicle told Mesa police that the car was not in autonomous mode at the time of Saturday night's crash. Witnesses say another car failed to stop for a red light and crashed into the Waymo vehicle as it was turning left.

PHOENIX (AP) - There are more than a hundred Democratic candidates vying for a seat in the Arizona Legislature this year. The Arizona Capitol Times reports it's the first time since 1988 that so many Democrats have jumped into the race. It's also a 41 percent increase from 2016 when 81 Democrats qualified for the ballot. Arizona Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee officials say the group's goal is to saturate the ballot in hopes of getting as many Democrats elected as possible.
