Election Day is here, Navy SEALs are told to zip it, and a family seeks answers after the deaths of their children in a Mexican border town.
It's Tuesday, and here are the "5 things to know for your New Day."
1. ELECTION DAY
Go vote: There's a lot on the line today - 435 House seats, 36 governors' races and party control of the Senate. Though Republicans appear to be on track to take the Senate majority, polls can be wrong and might miss important shifts during the final hours of the election.
2. UTAH POLICE SHOOTING
Another contentious shooting: To hear prosecutors tell it, Darrien Hunt lunged at officers with a "samurai-type sword" before he was killed. To hear his family tell it, police shot the 22-year-old several times while he was running away. An independent autopsy proves he was shot from behind, his family's attorney said. But the Utah County Attorney's Office has ruled the shooting justified.
3. BIN LADEN DEATH
Seal it, SEALs: The head of Naval Warfare Special Command had warned Navy SEALs against betraying their promise to maintain secrecy just days ahead of a SEAL's "60 Minutes" interview defending his publication of details from the 2011 Osama bin Laden mission. The admonition is seemingly directed both at Matt Bissonnette, who revealed his role on the bin Laden mission with "60 Minutes" on Sunday, and at a SEAL at the center of an upcoming Fox News documentary.
4. MEXICO KILLINGS
Mysterious deaths: Raquel and Pedro Alvarado had to bury three of their children - Erica, Alex and Jose Angel - after they were mysteriously killed just south of the Texas border. Each sibling was bound at the hands and feet, and each had a gunshot wound to the head.
5. ISIS DEATHS
300 Sunnis killed: That's the latest staggering report from the Iraqi government as ISIS continues its campaign of terror in Iraq and Syria. Some of the 322 people executed were women and children. The dead belonged to the Albu Nimr tribe, known for its fighting skill.
Those are your five biggies for the day. Here are a few others that are brewing and have the Internet buzzing:
Grumpy cat gets movie deal: Who knew looking so angry could land a starring gig?
Dog and sax duet: Apparently, this dog can sing the blues better than we can.
Brought to tears: When Chris Botti performed the national anthem, it made the Indiana Colts' Reggie Wayne well up.
