The wife of a DEA employee was killed by a gunman while she was in her car with her husband and two children.

Tracy Czaczkowski, 44 of Buffalo Grove, Ill., was shot in her neck Sunday afternoon, and the suspected shooter is in police custody, ABC News reports. 

She is the wife of an 11-year DEA employee.

“Tracy is a loving wife of 15 years, mother of two tender age children, daughter and friend,” the DEA said in a statement. “The family is asking for privacy in this difficult time so that they can comfort each other. The family would like to say thank you for the prayers and out pouring of support for Tracy.”

Police said they don’t believe the husband’s employment had anything to do with the shooting, calling it a “random act.”

An Olympic gold medal swimmer who became paralyzed from the waste down said she was “humiliated” during a full-body search after her wheelchair couldn’t go through a metal detector.

ABC News reports that Van Dyken-Rouen, said she was groped during the search at Denver International Airport.

“They go around your breast. They basically go under your butt. They touch things that are not appropriate and it’s really embarrassing,” Van Dyken-Rouen told ABC News.

The TSA apologized in a written statement Monday.

“TSA works closely with the disability community to develop screening procedures that integrate the unique needs of those with disabilities or medical issues into the process. TSA reviews passenger complaints, and in this case determined that our officers did not follow correct screening protocols when Ms. Amy Van Dyken came through the security checkpoint at Denver International Airport (DEN) this weekend. TSA’s federal security director has reached out to Ms. Van Dyken. The officers involved are undergoing retraining, and TSA Denver is providing refresher training to all of its officers as well,” the statement read.

The Tucson police and Border Patrol agents are violating the Fourth Amendment rights of Southern Arizonans by immigration checks that often take more than an hour, the ACLU of Arizona wrote in a pair of letters to the two agencies Monday.

Of the 110 traffic stops reviewed by the ACLU by Tucson police between June 2014 and December 2015, a majority lasted longer than one hour, Tucson.com reports. 

More than three-quarters of the cases involved “clear or potential constitutional problems,” the ACLU said.

Someone with claustrophobia should not work with Border Patrol’s Entry team, which explores underground drug-smuggling passages near the border with Mexico.

The Los Angele Times reports that prospective members of the team must prove they can handle tight spaces by wiggling through a two-foot wide pipe for about 20 yards.

“You know right off if it’s playing with someone’s mind,” said Lance LeNoir, who leads the five person squad. “It takes some psyching up, to say the least, to do the job.”

The job is getting more difficult because team members are finding longer and tighter underground passages.

The average tunnel of the past two years was 2,450 feet.
