LANCASTER, Pa. - Lt. Governor John Fetterman announced Sunday he suffered a stroke last week.

In a statement, Fetterman explained he hadn’t been feeling well, but with his campaign for U.S. Senate in the final stages before Tuesday’s primary, he felt the need to keep going.

His wife insisted he go to a hospital and be checked. He went on to say they arrived in time for doctors to treat him.

I had a stroke that was caused by a clot from my heart being in an A-fib rhythm for too long. Fortunately, Gisele spotted the symptoms and got me to the hospital within minutes. The amazing doctors here were able to quickly and completely remove the clot, reversing the stroke, they got my heart under control as well. It's a good reminder to listen to your body and be aware of the signs.

He went on to say he is feeling better and his campaign continues.

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Federal agents interviewed the parents of the teenager accused of shooting and killing 10 people at a Buffalo supermarket and served multiple search warrants, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Sunday.

Federal authorities were still working to confirm the authenticity of a 180-page manifesto that was posted online, which detailed the plot and identified Payton Gendron by name as the gunman, the official said. Authorities say the shooting was motivated by racial hatred.

Gendron’s parents were cooperating with investigators, the official said. The official was not authorized to discuss details of the investigation into the Saturday afternoon shooting publicly and spoke to AP on condition of anonymity.
