| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Marin Report is a fast-paced, insightful look at the day's top news from renowned reporter Carol Marin. Watch it each weekday at noon.




Here are the stories we're following today:


• Six-month-old Jonylah Watkins died early this morning. She's the infant who was shot five times Monday as her father, who was also shot, changed her diaper in the front seat of a minivan. Police say he had gang ties. Sadly, this comes as shootings in Chicago have dropped by 9 percent this year over last.

• The federal trial of Cook County Commissioner Bill Beavers gets back on track today after a one-day delay. The Feds say he used $225,000 in campaign funds to gamble with but failed to pay taxes on the money.

• Now for some good news: Gas prices are going down. And an industry spokesman says they could stay down through the summer driving season.
