The following stories are brought to you by the fine folks on the News4 assignment desk.

MONTGOMERY POLICE WILL INVESTIGATE MALVO CLAIMS
Police are now investigating claims made by convicted sniper Lee Boyd Malvo in a recent interview with actor William Shatner.

Assistant Police Chief Drew Tracy tells WTOP he has directed his investigators to question those interviewed on the Shatner show, which aired this past weekend.

Malvo and former psychiatrist Neil Blumberg claimed the younger sniper was responsible for 42 murders with partner John Allen Muhammad. Previously, Malvo had admitted taking part in only about 20 shootings. (WTOP)

SAFEWAY TRUFFLES: ONLY $999 PER POUND
That’s not a typo. At least GM doesn’t think so. What you see there is a locked case of truffles in the Safeway produce section selling for $999.99 per pound.

GM did a quick run through of the store to see if anything came close to this in terms of price. Only a few bottles of wine and champagne topped the multi-hundred dollar range, but nothing close to this. (Georgetown Metropolitan)

MARYLAND MAN DIES IN GOLF CART CRASH
A Maryland man is dead after losing control of his golf cart in a park and plunging over a 15-foot embankment into the Potomac River.

Sixty-year-old Marshall Marks of New Market died early Sunday.

Berkeley County sheriff's deputies say two others were injured. They were passengers in the cart that Marks was driving. Neither had life-threatening injuries. (Washington Post)

METRO BOARD MEMBERS PLAY HOOKY

When Metro' to approve a major development plan for the New Carrollton station, Vice Chairman Marcell Solomon never showed.

His absence was notable because he represents Prince George's County, which will benefit from the injection of 6.1 million square feet of economic development. But it wasn't unusual. (Washington Examiner)
