Two people were suffering from life-threatening stab wounds after a violent protest broke out Sunday in Sacramento. The fight involved a white supremacist group clashing with counter-protesters at the state Capitol.
Officials said a total of 10 injured people were taken to area hospitals, some with "critical trauma" stab wounds. A spokeswoman from UC Davis Medical Center said it was treating eight people with injuries related to the rally, with their conditions ranging from "good to critical." The white supremacist group has been identified as a California affiliate of the Traditionalist Workers Party. The group sent out a news release about a planned march, calling the event "one to remember."
Five people were killed and another person was seriously injured after a vehicle collided into an Amtrak train in Colorado Sunday, NBC News reported.
Two of the victims were adults and four were children, according to NBC station KUSA. All six were in the vehicle. The survivor, a young girl, was airlifted to a hospital.
State patrol said they didn't suspect drugs or alcohol, although failure to yield right of way was being investigated as the factor in the collision, which took place just after noon ET near the New Mexico state line.
The train was traveling from Chicago to Los Angeles. It had 286 passengers on board.

An online petition calling for a second referendum on Britain’s exit from the European Union has received more than 3 million signatures, NBC News reported.
The petition calls for the government to implement a rule stating there should be another referendum if either camp won less than 60 percent of the vote with less than 75 percent voter turnout. The "Leave" campaign had racked up 17.4 million votes — compared to 16.1 million backing the status quo — giving "Leave" 51.9 percent of the ballot.
The online petition site hosted by the House of Commons website crashed Friday because of unprecedented interest in the measure. The person behind the petition was, in fact, in favor of the so-called Brexit.
Even though it has reached a record number of people to support it, the petition is not expected to result in a EU reversal.

Donald Trump’s campaign chair argued he is “confident” lagging fundraising totals and the recent removal of a top campaign leader will put Trump behind Hillary Clinton.
During an interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press” Sunday, Paul Manafort told Chuck Todd the campaign is “getting organized” and that the team is “now integrated with the Republican National Committee.”
The campaign endured scrutiny this week for a trip made to a Trump-owned golf course in Scotland amid the United Kingdom’s “Brexit” vote. Manafort defended the decision not to call off the trip, saying supporters are attracted to Trump because he is an international businessman. He called attacks on the trip “"tone deafness of the Hillary Clinton campaign."
Manafort formally took over the helm of the campaign after Corey Lewandowski was fired Monday. He’s advised presidential campaigns of Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.
Voters in the United Kingdom have decided to leave the European Union after a...

Survivors of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing visited some of the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando, NBC News reported.
The ten marathon victims, along with service dogs, visited six of the Orlando nightclub shooting victims who were still in the hospital this weekend.
The visit was set up by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer’s office. A large group was gathered together, with the help of JetBlue, Uber and AirBnB, according to marathon survivor Dave Fortier.
"It's a lot of talking, learning about their families and where they are all from. We are able to relate on a scale some folks may not be able to do," Fortier told NBC News on Sunday, as he was still with one of the Pulse victims. "We are showing them some of the things we learned."
The two groups shared their experiences and exchanged contact information.

Nine children and two adults were injured after a roller coaster derailed and fell off the tracks at an amusement park in Scotland Sunday, NBC News reported.
Photos taken by bystanders showed the cars of the Tsunami roller coaster at M&D's amusement park in North Lanarkshire, Scotland, on the ground in a heap.
"We have all emergency services on site to assist. The theme park is closed until further notice," the theme park said in a statement.
Tsunami is Scotland's only inverted roller coaster, according to M&D's website. It reaches speeds of up to 40 mph, the website said.

Montgomery County, Maryland, believes they have an uncommon solution to a bird problem in their county parks.
Montgomery Parks plans to round up between 100 to 150 geese that have been creating safety issues in the facilities and humanely euthanize them. The animals will be processed and the meat will be donated to the Maryland Food Bank.
“These geese are year-round residents and create multiple issues for park users and staff. The excessive feces they leave, up to one pound daily, is not only unsightly but causes unsanitary conditions around bodies of water, docks, pathways, athletic fields and lawn areas,” Dave Petersen, Natural Resources Specialist for Montgomery Parks, said in a press release.
