Page 2A — Herald-Zeitijng — Friday, AprO 8, 2005Coach shot at East Texas high school
CANTON (AP) —The father of a high school football player shot and wounded the team’s coach with an assault rifle Thursday, fled in a truck loaded with weapons, and then tried to kill himself by slashing his wrists, authorities said.
Jeffrey Doyle Robertson, 45, apparently went to Canton High School just after classes started and shot coach Gary Joe Kinne in the school’s field house, authorities said. He was shot in the chest, authorities said.
Robertson then fled, and about two hours later the pickup was found abandoned on a rural road next to a golf course a few miles outside of town. Officers later found Robertson in the woods with self-inflicted wounds, including cuts to his wrists, said Tom Vinger, a spokesman with the Department of Public Safety.
Television footage captured Robertson being carried to an ambulance on stretcher and he seemed semiconscious.
Kinne, who is also the Canton High School athletic director, was airlifted to a hospital in nearby Tyler, but authorities were not releasing his condition.
Police were investigating a possible motive. On Wednesday, Robertson’s son, Baron, had apparently been banned from playing all school athletics, said Steve Smith Jr., a senior who was a defensive end and kicker on the team. He said another coach told players that after Kinne was shot.
Robertson had been banned from the school’s campus and told not to attend school functions after several confrontations with coaches.

NEARLY 50 IMMIGRANTS FOUND IN BIG RIG - A state trooper who pulled over an 18-wheeler near Abilene for a random inspection Thursday discovered 48 illegal immigrants in the trailer, authorities said.
None of the immigrants — 42 men and six women ranging in age from 13 to 55 — was hurt, said Tela Mange, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department for Public Safety. They had a couple of 5-gallon jugs of water with them in the back, she said.
After the trooper pulled over the rig about 8:30 a.m. on Interstate 20 near lye in Taylor County, he found that the driver did not have a commercial driver’s license or a log book, Mange said.
The driver, Henry L. Nunez, then gave permission for the trooper to check the trailer.
Border Patrol officials believe the vehicle left from El Paso, about 450 miles west of Abilene, and was en route to Dallas.
Authorities were trying to determine who owns the truck because it did not have current registration, Mange said.
POPE'S TESTAMENT SUGGESTS METHOUGHT ABOUT RESIGNING — Pope John Paul II, weighed down by illness and age, considered resigning as he turned 80 in 2000, according to his last will and testament published Thursday. The pope also wrote of tormented times for himself and the church and left instructions for his notes to be burned.
The document, written in several entries over 22 years, provides extraordinary insight into the pope’s thinking in the twilight of his life as he reflected about death and his legacy, and as he prayed for the “necessary strength” to continue his mission.
“The times in which we live are unutterably difficult and disturbed,” he wrote in 1980. “The
path of the church has also become difficult and tense... both for the faithful and for pastors.”
IRAQ GETS TWO NEW INTERIM LEADERS -
Cementing Iraq’s first democrac-tic government in 50 years, one of Saddam’s Hussein’s most implacable enemies took his oath as president Thursday and quickly named another longtime foe of the ousted dictator to the powerful post of prime minister.
The new government’s main task will be to draft a permanent constitution and lay the groundwork for elections in December.
After his inaugural speech, interim President Jalal Talabani, a Kurd, walked off the stage, and members of the National Assembly and onlookers began to disperse and television feeds were cut.
Talabani came hack about IO minutes later and had to shout to a dwindling crowd that the President’s Council —Talabani and his two vice presidents — had, as expected, selected Shiite Arab leader Ibrahim al-Jaafari as interim prime minister.
