Officers respond to reports of shots fired at Highline College, outside Seattle
Highline College, about 24 kilometres (15 miles) south of Seattle, in Des Moines, Washington was on lock down. Just before noon, the school says law enforcement told them the situation was "all clear".

When I got home, I saw a large white ring, a telltale indication that the HomePod's silicone base had messed up the finish. Looking around the top of the cabinet, I noticed a bunch of little white marks, all left from the Sonos Ones as I moved them around.

In an explanation posted Wednesday, Apple said the problem occurs with speakers that, like the HomePod, are equipped with a silicon base to minimize vibration. However, unlike the HomePod which left behind prominent white circles, the Sonos One left behind four small marks. The HomePod also features Apple's assistant Siri, which is still catching up to Amazon's Alexa and Google's eponymous Assistant in responsiveness and versatility.

It was unclear whether authorities had spoken to Jereb, who spoke to several news outlets about Cruz's purported ties to the ROF. Jim Lewis , the family's lawyer, told WPTV: "They are heartbroken". "Just a mildly troubled kid who'd lost his mom".

According to a Sonos spokesperson, this is the first time that such an incident has been raised with one of its devices, and that the company is now investigating the situation. "Try cleaning the surface with the manufacturer's suggested oiling method". However, the smart speaker may leave some light marks in its wake when placed on wooden surfaces. A cloth placed underneath the HomePod, however, is not a good solution as the soft material will absorb the sound. Don't worry Pad & Quill, best known for their Artisan crafted leather accessories for Apple products, have you and your HomePod covered. You can pick up the leather HomePod Coaster right now on Pad & Quill's website. Even the folks at Apple themselves recommend this, especially if the ring stains are a big concern for you.
