It's a good day on Wall Street after last week's steep sell-off. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 586 points to 33-876 as markets roared back to start the week. The S&P 500 added 58 points to 42-24. The Nasdaq rose 111 points to 14-141.       Police are on the scene of a shooting that left an officer dead in a suburb of Denver. Residents in a section of Old Town Arvada were told to shelter in place as police canvas the area. At least one other person was taken to the hospital after the shooting.        Las Vegas Raiders defensive lineman Carl Nassib is the first active NFL player to say he is gay. He made the announcement today in an Instagram post. He wrote he's been meaning to do it for a while, but now feels comfortable. Nassib added he is a private person and isn't doing it for the attention.       Former President Obama is urging the Senate to pass a sweeping voting rights bill. The former commander-in-chief said Republican senators refusing to work toward a solution is "not acceptable." The stalled measure is unlikely to gain enough support with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell slamming it as an attempted "partisan power grab" by Democrats.        An FBI agent says backers of former President Trump talked about starting a "revolution" before the January 6th attack on the Capitol. NBC News is reporting on a court filing featuring comments from FBI Special Agent Patricia Norden. She claims, "Users in multiple online groups and platforms discussed traveling to the Capitol armed or making plans to start a 'revolution' on that day."        Groups representing airlines and employees are calling for a federal crackdown on unruly passengers. They sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland asking for stricter enforcement and tougher penalties including hefty fines and jail time. The push comes amid the soaring number of assaults involving passengers on flights.
