LAFAYETTE, Calif. (AP) - A man says his son, a California resident, is among the dead in a truck attack in Barcelona, Spain. Daniel Tucker says he had never seen his son happier than he had been in the last year, and his one consolation is that his son probably died happy.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Three counties say they've received enough valid signatures to trigger a recall election that could remove a southern California senator from office and end a Democratic supermajority in the California Legislature. Counts released Friday showed that recall proponents have gathered more than the 63,000 signatures required to recall Democratic Sen. Josh Newman of Fullerton.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - More than 150 people were killed during encounters with police in California in 2016. A report from Attorney General Xavier Becerra provides the first statewide tally on police use-of-force incidents. The report found violent police encounters last year led to the deaths of 157 civilians and six officers. It says there were 782 incidents resulting in serious injury or death, or when a firearm was discharged. The report doesn't detail the race of those civilians killed.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A wildfire in central Oregon has prompted the evacuation of 440 homes and the closure of a large section of highway in the so-called "zone of totality" for Monday's solar eclipse. The homes near Sisters, Oregon were evacuated Friday afternoon, and part of the McKenzie Pass Highway -- Oregon Highway 242 -- was closed.
