New York... a deadly shooting at the DEP offices in Kingston, which is along the Hudson River about halfway between New York City and Albany. A 33-year-old man was killed, and his 53-year-old co-worker is now charged with murder. The facility houses a water quality testing lab and watershed protection programs. Investigators are not revealing a possible motive...

California... a state agency says Google must move its mystery barge from a construction site on an island in the middle of the San Francisco Bay because the permits are not in order. There had been multiple complaints about the floating, four-story building, which some people had speculated would be a store for Google to sell its internet-connected glasses. Google can resolve the issue by moving the barge to a fully permitted construction facility elsewhere in the bay...

Iowa... it's been another success! More than 10,000 pounds of bacon attracted 12,000 visitors to the state fairgrounds this past weekend for Baconfest. This year's theme was Viva la Bacon, which apparently some confused with Elvis. This was the 7th year for the event, which just keeps getting bigger and better each and every year. And that's been a meaty USA Update.
