PRIEST KILLED IN ARIZONA:

A priest was shot and killed and another wounded at a Catholic church last night near Phoenix. Police responded to a burglary call shortly after 9:00 PM at the church. When they arrived they found the two priests injured. One died at the hospital the other is in critical condition. Police have not made any arrests.

VA HEALTH CARE BILL:

The U.S. Senate has passed a bill that will make it easier for veterans seeking V.A. medical care to get treated by local doctors. The bi-partisan measure meant to assist vets who've endured long wait times passed 93-3. The house approved a similar bill on Tuesday. Lawmakers hope a compromise version can be sent to President Obama soon for his signature.

MEN'S HEALTH SCREENING:

Men's health is the focus of a free event this Father's Day weekend. A free health fair offers screenings for the man in your life. It takes place Saturday from 9:00 AM- 1:00 PM at Eskenazi Health Center at 2700 Dr Martin Luther King Jr St. What's unique about this health fair--is you get to sit down with an actual physician at the end of the screening process to go over the results and your next course of action.

GRADUATION DAY:

It's graduation day for many students across Central Indiana. Today seniors from Arsenal Tech, Broad Ripple, Crispus Attucks, and George Washington Community High School will cross the stage to receive their diplomas. We have a list of the commencement ceremony times and locations on wthr.com.
