2 Chicago gangbangers executed 9-year-old in revenge killing against his father’s rival gang: prosecutors

Two reputed Chicago gang members allegedly executed a 9-year-old boy in broad daylight because they sought revenge on the child’s father’s rival gang that they blamed for gunning down family members, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Tyshawn Lee, 9, was in his school uniform when three men approached him in the South Side of Chicago in November 2015, prosecutors said during opening statements.

Prosecutors said Corey Morgan and Kevin Edwards kept watch while Dwight Doty lured the fourth-grader into an alleyway. They said he promised him a juice box.

Doty then took out a .40-caliber handgun and shot Lee, Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Margaret Hillmann said.

Two separate trials began for Morgan and Doty on Tuesday. The two alleged members of the Bang Gang/Terror Dome faction of the Black P Stones gang seek to pin the blame on each other for the child’s slaying, reports said. Edwards, who prosecutors claim was the getaway driver, pleaded guilty earlier this month to first-degree murder in exchange for a 25-year prison sentence, according to the Chicago Tribune. He’s not expected to testify against the other two men.

Prosecutors argued that Morgan and Doty targeted the 9-year-old elementary student because his father, Pierre Stokes, belongs to a rival gang—the Killa Ward faction of the Gangster Disciples. They say the two blame that gang for a shooting in October 2015 that killed Morgan’s brother and wounded his mother.

Morgan’s attorney, Thomas Breen, tried to distance his client from the crime.

“That execution of that 9-year-old boy has to come from one singularly evil person,” Breen told jurors without naming Doty. “Not from a plan. His killer did so of his own volition and for his own reason. Not at the behest or help of Corey Morgan.”

Brett Gallagher, an assistant public defender representing Doty, later pointed out to jurors that Morgan had the motive for revenge and the Morgan family had organized the purchase of the firearm used to kill the child.

The two gangs have been locked in an escalating gang war that could be responsible for up to 15 shootings dating back to 2011, authorities said. Months after the child’s execution, his father allegedly sought revenge by shooting three people, including Morgan’s girlfriend, outside a gas station. He is being held without bail.

Suspect, 18, held in murder of New York teen who was fatally stabbed while students recorded attack: cops

An 18-year-old man from New York City’s Long Island suburbs was arrested Wednesday and charged with the murder of a 16-year-old student who was fatally stabbed outside a pizza shop just blocks away from his high school earlier this week.

Police say dozens of teens recorded the assault on their cell phones instead of trying to stop the attack.

Police charged Tyler Flach of Lido Beach, N.Y., with second-degree murder in connection with the death of Khaseen Morris. Flach will be arraigned in First District Court in Hempstead on Thursday morning, Nassau County police officials said at a Wednesday evening news conference.

Khaseen Morris, 16, was fatally stabbed while dozens of teens stood around and watched without trying to stop the attack, police say.

Morris was stabbed once in the chest during an after-school fight Monday near Oceanside High School. Flach was allegedly one of about eight young people who came from a nearby high school in Long Beach on the South Shore of Long Island to fight Morris at the popular after-school hangout in retaliation for him spending time with one of their ex-girlfriends.

The victim’s sister, Keyanna Morris, 30, told Newsday of Long Island that she cried “tears of joy” when police called Wednesday to tell her an arrest had been made in connection with her brother’s slaying. She said her brother had told family that he walked a girl home from a party Sunday and he knew her ex-boyfriend had been trying to get in touch with him ever since to confront him, the New York Post reported.

Police said between 50 and 70 teens stopped to watch the bloody brawl, at least some of them recording the fight on their cell phones, all while failing to do anything to defend Morris from his attackers. Morris was rushed to South Nassau Communities Hospital in Oceanside where he died of his injuries shortly before midnight, Newsday reported.

“Kids stood there and didn’t help Khaseen,” Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick of the Nassau County Police Department said at a news conference Tuesday. “They videoed his death instead of helping him.”

“Kids stood there and didn’t help Khaseen. They videoed his death instead of helping him.”

Authorities used the cell phone video as well as surveillance video from a local business to identify some of the suspects in the case, Newsday reported. Also Wednesday, Nassau County police assigned extra officers to Oceanside High School in response to a threat made against the school.

“The Nassau County Police Department has increased our patrols at Oceanside High School as an abundance of caution and are working with the school’s administration to ensure the highest level of safety for students and faculty,” Det. Lt. Richard LeBrun said in a statement. “All threats are always taken seriously and are being fully investigated. At this time these threats do not appear credible.”

Oceanside Superintendent Phyllis S. Harrington said in a statement sent to parents and school officials that the school was investigating posts on social media of “neighboring students” threatening to come to the Oceanside campus to potentially do harm.

Hundreds attended candlelight vigils Tuesday and Wednesday evening held in the parking lot where the fatal brawl took place, Newsday reported. A second teenager was hospitalized with a broken arm and swelling to his head after Monday’s fight.

Crew member who survived California dive boat fire files lawsuit against owner: report

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6085749129001_6085751454001-vs Crew member who survived California dive boat fire files lawsuit against owner: report fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/disasters/fires fox news fnc/us fnc b8f0f51a-d679-5989-8acc-bf933cae1a68 article

A crew member who was on the dive boat that caught fire off the Southern California coast earlier this month reportedly sued the boat’s owner and the dive charter company, claiming the boat was not properly maintained and employees lacked proper training.

The Pacific Coast Times reported that Ryan Sims, the crew member, claimed he was trapped with other employees when the fire broke out on the boat, called the Conception. He reportedly claimed he was forced to jump from the top deck into the water and broke one of his legs in three places.

All six crew members were asleep when the boat caught fire, killing 34 people, federal authorities said. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), in a preliminary report, said five crew members were sleeping in their quarters behind the wheelhouse on the second deck and another below deck when the fire broke out in the early hours of Sept. 2.

A lawyer for the company disputed the claim that they were asleep and said earlier that a crew member “checked” the galley area about 45 minutes before the fire broke out. Worldwide Diving Adventures, the dive company, was also named in the lawsuit.

Coast Guard records show the Conception passed its two most recent inspections with no safety violations. Previous customers said the company that owns the vessel, Truth Aquatics, and the captains of its three boats, were very safety conscious.

The paper said it reached out to lawyers for Truth Aquatics, but did not get an immediate response. Truth Aquatics Inc. filed suit in Los Angeles in federal court under a pre-Civil War provision of maritime law that allows it to limit its liability.

The suit said the company and owners Glen and Dana Fritzler “used reasonable care to make the Conception seaworthy, and she was, at all relevant times, tight, staunch, and strong, fully and properly manned, equipped and supplied and in all respects seaworthy and fit for the service in which she was engaged.”

Anyone who could make a claim against the company would be served with notice that the firm was asserting it was not liable for damages and victims will have a limited time to challenge that claim.

The time-tested legal maneuver has been successfully employed by owners of the Titanic and countless other crafts, and many maritime law experts said they’d anticipated it.

2 California middle school students arrested after ‘sucker punch’ leaves third in critical condition: reports

Two California middle school students were arrested after police said a student was sucker-punched during a fight on campus Monday that left him in critical condition, according to reports.

Police responded to Landmark Middle School in Moreno Valley, Calif., Monday at about 1 p.m. They found a seriously injured student who had been in a fight, according to a press release from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.  He was rushed to a nearby hospital and listed in critical condition, authorities said.

DEFENDANT SUCKER-PUNCHES HIS ATTORNEY IN ARIZONA COURTROOM

A Facebook video posted by an unverified account that purports to show the altercation that started with two students squaring off and then the third appearing to take the cheap shot. The alleged victim appeared to hit his head on a concrete pillar as he fell to the ground.

Two 13-year-old boys were arrested Monday and booked into Riverside Juvenile Hall, where they are expected to be charged with assault likely to produce great bodily injury. The identities of all three boys were not released by authorities because they are minors, the Times reported.

On Tuesday, officials from the sheriff’s department met with school staff to provide updates about the investigation, the Times reported. It is unclear what started the fight.

Back in March, a fight between about 50 students broke out at the school that prompted deputies to fire pepper balls into the crowd to break it up, the Los Angeles Times reported. Some were treated for minor injuries related to exposure to the irritant, but no one was seriously hurt.

Trump says EPA to slap San Francisco with violations related to homeless population

President Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One Wednesday that within a week, his administration will slap San Francisco with a notice of environmental violations related to the city’s homelessness problem.

TRUMP SAYS CALIFORNIA CITIES ‘DESTROY THEMSELVES’ WITH HOMELESSNESS

Trump made the remarks while returning to Washington, D.C. after a two-day fundraising trip in California.

Trump said the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will give San Francisco a notice related to the “tremendous” amount of pollution flowing into the ocean from the city’s storm sewers, Reuters reported. He also said hypodermic needles also littered the sewers there and were polluting the sea. Trump did not mention the source of the information.

“It’s a terrible situation that’s in Los Angeles and in San Francisco,” Trump said. “And, we’re going to be giving San Francisco, they’re in total violation, we’re going to be giving them a notice very soon.”

Maine mother allegedly gave heroin to daughter, 1, who later died

A Maine mom was arrested Wednesday after she allegedly gave her one-year-old daughter small doses of heroin more than a dozen times to help her sleep, a practice that resulted in the baby’s death.

Authorities charged Kimberly Nelligan, 33, with child endangerment and possession of drugs after they say she rubbed heroin residue on the child’s gums at least 15 times over the course of two months before her death on Oct. 10, 2018, according to court documents obtained by the Bangor Daily News.

The medical examiner’s office said the baby died of acute fentanyl intoxication, adding that the infant likely ingested the drug that killed her.

NEW MEXICO POLICE FIND NEWBORN INJECTED WITH HEROIN DEAD IN TRASH BAG, REPORT SAYS

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that is typically prescribed to treat severe pain, particularly in cancer patients but is also cut into doses of heroin.

Nelligan initially told police that she had never used heroin, but later admitted that she snorted the drug from small baggies once a week for two months leading up to her daughter’s death. She also admitted that she had used the drug on her other children as a sleep aid in the past, police said.

Nelligan’s husband told police that he witnessed her rubbing the heroin residue on their daughter’s gums about 15 times.

“You know I didn’t hurt our daughter on purpose,” Nelligan allegedly said to the father, according to the affidavit.

Nelligan faces up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $2,000 for child endangerment and up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine for the drug charge.

She was released on bail and is not permitted contact with the child’s father nor any children under the age of 18 years old.

District Attorney Marianne Lynch said that more charges against Nelligan could arise as the investigation continues.

“These are very serious, very difficult cases, and in some instances, the law isn’t really designed to address issues like this,” Lynch said. “If things change at some point, there is still a possibility for other charges to come forward, but at this point, these are the charges we are confident we can go forward with.”

Florida sex offender convicted of murder, rape, sentenced to death

A Florida man was sentenced to death Wednesday for the 2014 murder of a young mother and the sexual assault of her daughter.

Donald Hugh Davidson Jr waived his right to a jury trial after pleading guilty to first-degree murder, kidnapping, attempted sexual battery on a child over 12, grand theft and lewd and lascivious molestation, the State Attorney’s Office in Jacksonville announced.

State Attorney Melissa Nelson said the case “shocked the conscience of Clay County.” Clay is in northeastern Florida.

Prosecutors said Davidson entered the Middleburg home of 35-year-old Roseann Welsh on Dec. 1, 2014, strangled her and stabbed her in the neck several times. He’d known Welsh’s husband since childhood.

He then sexually assaulted Welsh’s young daughter in the home and kidnapped her in the family’s van. He took her to several areas and continually sexually assaulted her before dropping her off near her home, The Florida Times-Union reported.

Davidson’s lead attorney, Mark Wright, said “it is a sad day for everyone.”

Nine men arrested over statutory rapes on Alabama college campus

Nine men were arrested in connection with a series of statutory rape complaints on the Jacksonville State University campus, authorities said Wednesday.

The men, who’ve been released from police custody, range from 18 to 22, and face second-degree rape charges. Allen George, a commander with the Seventh Judicial Circuit Major Crimes Task Force, said they are from Anniston, Jacksonville, Centre and Guntersville, Ala.

Their names were not released. It was unclear if they were students at the university.

The arrests stem from reports of six statutory rapes earlier this year, WAFF-TV reported.

George said he became aware of other incidents that took place on campus after the Jacksonville Police Department asked him to investigate one of the complaints.

The assaults are said to have occurred at halls and a parking garage. Authorities are not looking for a serial rapist and students are not in danger, George said.

In a statement, the school said it was aware of the investigation, which is ongoing.

“The university is fully cooperating,” the statement read. “No more statements will be made at this time due to privacy laws. There is no risk to our students.”
