Wall St falls as shutdown weighs

Downbeat September service sector data adds to investor worries about outlook amid US political deadlock.

United States stocks fell broadly Thursday, as investors weighed the consequences of an extended partial government shutdown after a budget deal remained elusive in Washington.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 137 points, or 0.9%, to 14,996 points, its ninth decline in 11 sessions and closing below 15,000 for the first time in a month. All but four Dow components were lower.
