NEW YORK — The stock market is sliding to its lowest level in a month as a partial shutdown of the U.S. government enters a third day.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index dropped 22 points, or 1.3 percent, to 1,671 as of noon, its lowest level since Sept. 9.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 184 points, or 1.2 percent, to 14,948. The Nasdaq fell 59 points, or 1.6 percent, to 3,755.

Industrial companies led the market lower. Boeing fell the most of the 30 companies in the Dow, giving up $2.90, or 2.5 percent, to $114.94.

Tesla Motors slumped $12.65, or 7 percent, to $168.21 after the electric car company got a rare downgrade from a financial analyst and on news of a fire involving one of its cars.
