CHULA VISTA Parkland survivor David Hogg is going to Harvard University

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida school shooting survivor and gun control advocate David Hogg is going to Harvard University.

Hogg announced his acceptance to the Cambridge, Massachusetts, university on Twitter Saturday. He said he plans to major in political science.

Hogg has been one of the most prominent voices seeking gun control measures after authorities say a former student killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

He has amassed more than 900,000 Twitter followers. His tweet about his Harvard plans earned more than 162,000 “likes” within about eight hours.

He followed up the original tweet with one that said, “I love y’all so much.”

Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham received backlash earlier this year after she mocked Hogg in a tweet, saying he “whined” about being rejected by some colleges.

She later apologized. (AP) — A man riding an electric scooter has died after being struck by a car in Chula Vista.

Police Lt. Rusty Rea said the driver of the car stayed at the scene and was upset after the accident that happened around 4 a.m. Saturday.

Rea said investigators have not determined who was at fault and no charges are pending. He says the man who rode a Bird electric scooter has not been identified.

Meanwhile, police in San Diego said a woman crashed while riding a Bird electric scooter in the city’s Hillcrest neighborhood and suffered a life-threatening head injury.

Officer Robert Heims said the woman flipped and hit her head late Friday. She was taken to the hospital and her injury was considered life-threatening.
