Friday on the NewsHour, Indianapolis reels from a deadly mass shooting at a FedEx facility, and bodycam video of the police shooting of a Chicago teen is released. Then, dozens of states are seeking to ban young transgender athletes from competition despite widespread public opposition. And, after decades of being shunned by the industry, Black women finally gain prominence in country music.
Editor's Note: Today's segment on the Chicago Police shooting of Adam Toledo states that footage captured from Chicago Police Officer Eric Stillman's encounter with Adam Toledo took place the night of March 29th. The incident occurred in the early morning hours of March 29th. NewsHour regrets the error.
