    During an interview with Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday," President Donald Trump seemed to reject the idea of soon sitting with special counsel Robert Mueller for an interview, among multiple other subjects, NBC News reported.

    On Mueller, Trump all but shut down the idea that he would sit for an interview with the special counsel, adding that he will soon turn over his answers to written questions to the special counsel "at some point very soon."

    Asked if there would be "no interview" with Mueller, Trump said he thought "we've wasted enough time on this witch hunt and the answer is probably, we're finished" after he submits the written answers.

    Trump also said acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker is "right" about his criticism of Mueller's investigation and defended his appointment of Whitaker after forcing out Attorney General Jeff Sessions earlier this month.

    El Cajon Boy Injured in Hit-and-Run Crash Returns to School

    Hassan Haidar, 10, was riding his bike to school on Oct. 4 when a driver hit him, leaving him in the road. Just over a month since the crash, and 27 days in the hospital, Haidar is back at school part-time and on the road to recovery. The one thing doctors said saved his life was the helmet his mother always reminded him to wear.

    Former Gulls Star Willie O'Ree Enters Hockey Hall of Fame

    On Monday, Willie O'Ree was finally inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame. In 1958, O'Ree broke hockey's color barrier 11 years after Jackie Robinson did the same thing for Major League Baseball. At the end of his induction speech, O'Ree said the game has grown significantly but the NHL still has issues with inclusion. Then he reminded us all of the opportunity that he received and asked us all a simple favor. "I leave this with you," said O'Ree. "When you return to your communities take a look around. Find a young boy or girl who needs the opportunity to play hockey and give it to them. You never know; they may make history."

    East County Bar Raises Money for Shooting and Fire Victims

The bar's owner plans to drive the donations up north herself and drop them off to organizations already helping the victims in both tragedies.

    A broken fire hydrant in the Colina Del Sol area sent a plume of water about 50 feet into the air, flooding a home and a nearby apartment complex Sunday afternoon.

    The hydrant was knocked off around 2 p.m. in the 5000 block of University Avenue, San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Jose sea said.

    The water from the resulting geyser hit the roof of the house next to the hydrant, flooding the home.

    The water also flowed down the street and flooded three units at the Palms Apartments complex.

    "We had a total of three units that were flooded," maintenance manager Scott Tenhunen said. "Luckily one of them wasn’t that bad but the other two were pretty bad."

    One resident may be displaced because of the flooding, he said.

    "We already had a flood restoration company on its way," Tenhunen said.

    Brenda Snipes has submitted her resignation as the Broward County supervisor of elections.

    A representative of Snipes confirmed the news to NBC 6 on Sunday.

    Snipes became the Broward County supervisor of elections in 2003 after the calamitous issues in the 2000 election.

    Snipes faced heavy scrutiny over Broward's election and recount process in the recent 2018 midterm contest.

    Snipes was appointed to serve out a term in the role by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and she has won re-elections ever since. She was re-elected despite some controversies along the way. 

    In 2004, Snipes said 58,000 absentee ballots in heavily Democratic Broward County were lost – a detriment to the campaign of John Kerry's campaign.

    The history is mixed as the 2008 and 2010 elections had no issues.

    In 2016, however, her office illegally destroyed 6,000 ballots after they were counted but a judge ordered them to be preserved.

    In 2018, her office sent out a sample ballot that did not resemble the real ballot used on Election Day. The ballot arguably made it difficult to locate the U.S. Senate race on the ballot to cast a vote.

    Lastly, Snipes' office submitted the results of a machine recount two minutes past the deadline and also lost over 2,000 ballots for the 2018 midterm.

    Witnesses told police the teens knocked him down to the ground and attacked him while he was on the ground.

    Witnesses yelled at the teens and they fled eastbound on Imperial Avenue, Dobbs said.

    Several people were detained in the area but it was unclear if they were involved in the attack, he said.

    The victim has not been identified but was described as being in his 40s.

    Anyone with information about the incident was urged to call the SDPD Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

    The man was still at large as of 11 p.m. Sunday.

    Anyone who may have seen the man was urged to call 911.

    Police are still looking for an elderly at-risk woman who's been missing in the Mira Mesa area for two days.

    Twelve people were displaced Sunday after their Lemon Grove home caught fire, a fire official said.

    The fire started around 2:30 p.m. on the second-floor balcony of the home in the 3100 block of Buena Vista Avenue, Heartland Battalion Chief Chris Case said.

    The fire then spread into one of the bedrooms inside the home, he said.

    One of the residents spotted the fire, called 911 and tried to extinguish the flames himself, Case said.

    All 12 residents were displaced because of smoke and water damage to the home. The San Diego Red Cross was contacted to help those displaced, he said.

    One of the residents complained of smoke inhalation and was treated at the scene, Case said.

    The cause of the fire was under investigation and residents won't be allowed back in until inspectors evaluate the structural integrity of the house, the battalion chief said.

    A cement truck rolled over on a University City freeway onramp Monday morning, forcing highway crews to shut down the ramp as they upright the 60,000-pound truck. 

    The fully-loaded truck was transitioning from westbound La Jolla Village Drive to southbound I-805, probably a little too quickly, when it overturned at about 3 a.m., California Highway Patrol said. 

    CHP said the driver had filled up the truck at a facility nearby and was heading out to start his morning deliveries when the rollover happened. He was not injured. 

    Crews shut down the transition ramp as they worked to upright the truck. Just after 6 a.m., two tow trucks with cranes hoisted the truck back on its wheels. 

    The truck would still need to be towed away before the on-ramp could be reopened to traffic.

    Lanes into the United States from Mexico have been temporarily shut down at the San Ysidro Port of Entry as crews secure the border in response to a caravan of thousands of migrants from Central America. 

    A message from CBP said they had temporarily suspended northbound vehicle processing as they "position additional port hardening materials." 

    The majority of lanes would be reopened after the process was completed, a CBP spokesperson said. It was not clear how long the positioning would take. 

    Pedestrian lanes into the U.S. at the Ped-East facility were also closed but foot travelers could use the Ped-West facility to cross into the US, CBP said.

    Southbound lanes were not affected.

    The San Ysidro Port of Entry is the busiest land border crossing in the United States. 

    More than 1,100 Marines have been deployed to assist CBP with Operation Secure Line, a "border hardening" mission meant to prepare the area’s infrastructure for the arrival of thousands of people among the migrant caravan seeking asylum in the United States.

    CBP said the Marines' specific duties include installing barbed wire to make walls less scalable, and reinforcing construction areas so that people could not cross into them.

    Pieces of barbed wire, concrete roadblocks and rebar are being used to create reinforced barriers that can be used to block lanes at the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports of entry. 

    Thousands more troops from other branches have also deployed to the border to assist in other ways. For example, Army Military Police are there to protect the Marines who are not armed and are prohibited from enforcing the law. The Department of Defense insisted last week that the troops were sent there to help CBP and nothing else.

    Analysts and the Pentagon estimate that the entire deployment operation could cost $200 million.

    "My place is not to think about fiscal restraint, that’s for Congress. We’ve been asked to do a job and that’s what we’re here to do," Army Captain Guster Cunningham said.

    In October, President Donald Trump threatened to close the southern border to address the caravan if the situation worsened. Since the arrival of the first troops at the border, CBP has acknowledged that option is still on the table.

    A former Ohio judge convicted of assaulting his estranged wife in 2014 was taken into custody last week after she was found dead, NBC News reported.

    Lance Mason served nine months for the assault on Aisha Fraser, which took place in front of their children, according to NBC affiliate WKYC. After his release, Mason was hired to serve in Cleveland's government, but he was fired Saturday after his arrest.

    Police in Shaker Heights, Ohio, didn't immediately give details about Fraser's death but called it a "terrible tragedy."

    Fraser was a teacher for two decades and an uncle said in a statement that "Heaven just got a magnificent angel," according to WKYC.

    Four teenagers have been arrested in connection with the brutal beating of a man near Petco Park in the East Village, police said Monday. 

    Paramedics found Edward Leon Starland, 56, unresponsive near the pedestrian bridge that connects Park Boulevard over Harbor Drive at about 2:10 p.m. Sunday. 

    A witness said Starland and a group of teens were arguing when he was pushed to the ground and attacked, Lt. Matt Dobbs said. The teens took off when witnesses yelled at them. 

    SDPD's investigation led them to believe 19-year-old Dominick Wells and three juvenile women, ages 14, 15 and 17, were involved in the attack. The three girls would not be identified because they are under-age, police said. 

    All four were arrested and booked into either San Diego County Jail or Juvenile Hall on felony battery charges. 

    Starland remains in the hospital on life support. He is not expected to survive the injuries sustained in the beating, Dobbs said. 

    SDPD continues to investigate the incident and is working on identifying other possible suspects.

    Anyone with information about the incident was urged to call the SDPD Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

    Mark Zuckerberg and his deputy, Sheryl Sandberg, believe Facebook's negative image comes from bungled public relations strategy and sensational media coverage, not structural or philosophical issues, six sources at the company told NBC News.

    Facebook is facing challenges from consumer organizations, politicians and journalists. A recent New York Times report found it had a "delay, deny and deflect" strategy for dealing with problems related to Russia-based disinformation efforts, and Zuckerberg and Sandberg publicly blamed the company's communications team for a controversial PR move highlighted in the report.

    Internally, members of the communications team feel they've been thrown under the bus, with one source calling the move "total arrogance."

    A Facebook spokesperson told NBC News the leadership "takes full responsibility for the issues we're facing. ... No matter where people sit at Facebook, everyone wants to move forward — and that's our plan."
