A dismantled nuclear bomb is making its home in a panhandle museum.
The B53 bomb is now at the freedom museum in Pampa as part of a war memorabilia exhibit. The bomb was transported from B&W Pantex on Wednesday to its new home. Workers called the B53 "the last of the big dogs" because it weighed about 10,000 pounds and was considered the most destructive weapon in the U.S. arsenal.
It was taken out of service in 2011.
A fight at a party led to one man being shot and two arrested.
Police were sent to an apartment complex in the 1200 block of south Roberts around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. They found a man who had been shot in the leg he was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A fight had broke out in one of the apartments where a party was happening.
The victim tried to break up the fight when he was shot. The shooter fled the scene before police arrived. The victim, 24 year old Matthew Barrientez, gave a false name and was found to be wanted for bond forfeiture. After being treated, he was arrested for the warrant and failure to identify.
A person who was leaving the party, 42 year old Orlando Garza, was found to be wanted on a parole violation warrant. He was booked into Potter county.

A water main break over the weekend will cause some delays and detours for the next few days.
A break in the 12-inch water main caused a sinkhole to form on 45th just west of I-27. While the main was repaired within a few hours, road repairs may take up to a week to complete.
As a result, 45th just west of the Canyon E-way is closed to east and westbound traffic. If you are driving east on 45th and want to turn north on to the E-way, you'll have to find a different route.
For daily updates on repairs, you can follow the City of Amarillo on Facebook or on Twitter @cityofamarillo.
