Inmates on death row will not be executed any time soon. The Trump Administration had asked the Supreme Court to restart federal executions on Monday after a 16-year break, but the justices denied that request Friday. Executions could stay on hold for several months.       An officer in Alabama has died after being shot Friday afternoon. He was chasing a suspect in a drug investigation when he was hit outside his bulletproof vest. He's a 20-year veteran of the Huntsville Police Department and the sixth police officer killed this year.        The White House is refusing to take part in the House impeachment investigation. President Trump's attorney calls it "completely baseless." Meantime, House Judiciary Republicans have requested eight witnesses to testify. The ranking Republican on the committee is asking they all be subpoenaed.       A sheriff in Florida says it will take some time to investigate Friday's deadly shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola. He called for people to trust officials to tell them what they need to know to keep them safe. He also called on people to remember the victims.        Wall Street is wrapping up the week in rally mode thanks to a surprisingly strong jobs report. Stocks surged after the Labor Department said the economy added 266-thousand jobs in November while the unemployment rate fell to three-and-a-half percent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 337 points to 28-015.        A Los Angeles jury says billionaire Elon Musk did not defame a British cave diver when he called him a "pedo guy." Vernon Unsworth was suing the Tesla and Space-X founder for 190-million dollars. He angered Musk last year by refusing his help with the rescue of a Thai soccer team from a flooded cave.
