Minnesota man charged with attempted murder in shooting that critically wounded officer

Tyler Janovsky from Minnesota was charged with three counts of attempted murder of a peace officer and possession of a firearm by an ineligible person on Wednesday, after he allegedly shot Waseca police officer Arik Matson in the head.

Matson, 32, was responding to reports of a suspicious person on Monday when Janovsky, 37, reportedly opened fire on him and the other officers he was with. After Matson was hit, Sgt. Timothy Schroeder returned fire and wounded Janovsky, according to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA).

Matson was then airlifted to North Memorial Hospital and remains in critical but stable condition, Fox 9 reported.

Police said Janovsky, who has reportedly been wanted for running a methamphetamine lab and possessing illegal firearms, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Pastor Kaleb Hurley visited Matson on Wednesday and provided an update on his recovery. Hurley spoke on behalf of Matson’s family and said his surgery had been “very successful.”

“With every hour up to this point, Arik’s condition has been getting better and he’s better than what the doctors thought that he would be or what they anticipated,” Hurley said in a Facebook video message, after quoting biblical verse on the power of prayer.

The pastor created a Facebook events page for a “community night of prayer” for Matson and his family on Thursday between 6 and 8 p.m.

“As many of you know, Officer Arik Matson of the Waseca Police Department was injured in the line of duty on Monday night, January 6th. We have already seen an outpouring of support from our community, which the family is so grateful for,” the event page read.

“One of the biggest ways we can continue to support them is through prayer,” it added. “We would like to invite the entire community from Albert Lea to Waseca and beyond to join gather together this Thursday evening from 6pm-8pm to lift up Arik and his family.”

Hurley also created a GoFundMe page to help Matson’s wife and two children with medical expenses and basic necessities. The page has raised nearly $120,000 as of Wednesday evening, with a goal of $250,000.

Matson, who is still facing a long road to recovery, has served as a police officer since 2013. He has also served as a SWAT team member, a city councilman and volunteer firefighter, according to CBS 4 in Minnesota.

Ohio man who claimed to be missing boy gets 2 years for identity theft

An Ohio man who impersonated the long-missing child who disappeared when he was 6 years old was sentenced Wednesday to two years in prison after pleading guilty to identity theft.

Brian Michael Rini, 24, of Medina, will be credited for time served dating back to April 2019 and will be on probation for one year following his release. He pleaded guilty last year to aggravated identity theft and lying to FBI agents.

Prosecutors later dropped the lying charge. He could have faced up to eight years in prison had he been convicted on all charges.

Rini was initially arrested after a DNA test proved he wasn’t Timmothy Pitzen, an Aurora, Ill., boy who went missing in 2011. Rini was found by authorities April 3, 2019, wandering the streets of Newport, Ky.

He claimed to be Pitzen and said he had just escaped captors who sexually assaulted him. Federal authorities became suspicious when he refused to be fingerprinted.

The hoax raised hope for Pitzen’s relatives that his disappearance had been solved. Investigators believe the boy vanished after his mother, 43-year-old Amy Fry-Pitzen, pulled him out of kindergarten and took him on a two-day road trip to the zoo and a water park in Wisconsin.

Fry-Pitzen killed herself at a hotel, authorities said. She left a note saying her son was safe with people who will love and care for him.

“You will never find him,” the note said.

Rini was released from prison in March after serving more than a year for burglary and vandalism. He was accused of making up stories during his prison stint, records show. He was treated in 2017 at a center for people with mental health issues and substance abuse problems.

Rini admitted he watched Pitzen’s story on ABC’s “20/20” and wanted to get away from his own family, the FBI said. He previously twice portrayed himself as a juvenile victim of sex trafficking in Ohio, authorities said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Alcohol-related deaths in US have more than doubled over past 20 years, study finds

Westlake Legal Group iStock-974765782 Alcohol-related deaths in US have more than doubled over past 20 years, study finds Morgan Phillips fox-news/health fox-news/food-drink fox news fnc/us fnc article 78ebdb76-a346-52bc-bb4e-efdd39159a0a

The number of alcohol-related deaths in the U.S. has more than doubled since the turn of the century, according to a new government report.

“Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research” found alcohol-related deaths per year shot up from 35,914 in 1999 to 72,558 in 2017. Given reports that death certificates often fail to indicate alcohol as a cause of death, the actual number is likely higher.

Researchers at the National Center for Health Statistics looked at death certificates from 1999 to 2017 and found the rate of alcohol-related death increased 50.9 percent, from 16.9 to 25.5 per 100,000. This equates to nearly 1 million lives lost over the 18-year span.

In 2017 alone, 2.6 percent of deaths in the United States were alcohol-related. Nearly half of the alcohol-related deaths were the result of liver disease or overdoses.

‘DRY JANUARY’ GAINS POPULARITY AS MORE PEOPLE TRY TO CUT BACK ON ALCOHOL 

Rates were highest among males, those between the ages of 45 and 74 years and among non-Hispanic American Indians or Alaska natives. However, the largest annual increase occurred among non-Hispanic white females.

Unsurprisingly, Americans have been consuming more alcohol since the start of the new millennium. Per capita consumption of alcohol over the same time period by about 8 percent. An average of 2.34 gallons of ethanol were consumed per capita in 2017. Over 20 million gallons of beer were consumed that year, according to Statista.

As of 2017, health care costs from alcohol abuse alone in the U.S. were estimated to be $27 billion per year.

Puerto Rico earthquake, power outage spurs state of emergency, many sleep outside amid ‘uncertainty’

Schools across Puerto Rico remained closed on Wednesday as more than a half-million people remained without electricity after the island’s worst earthquake in a century.

President Trump declared an emergency, freeing up federal funds, and Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vázquez activated the National Guard after the magnitude 6.4 quake struck Tuesday, killing one person and injuring nine others while knocking out power across the U.S. territory. Vázquez, who also declared a state of emergency, said power should return to most of the island in 24 to 48 hours.

“All of Puerto Rico has seen the devastation of this earthquake,” Vázquez told reporters.

PUERTO RICO EARTHQUAKE CAUSES POPULAR TOURIST ROCK FORMATION TO COLLAPSE

Some Puerto Ricans in the hard-hit south area of the island in towns such as Guánica moved beds outside Tuesday night over concerns their homes would collapse if another earthquake hit. The flurry of quakes in Puerto Rico’s southern region began the night of Dec. 28.

In Guánica, more than 200 people took shelter in a gymnasium after a quake Monday, only for the latest temblor on Tuesday to damage that structure — forcing them to sleep outside.

“There’s no power. There’s no water. There is nothing. This is horrible,” Lupita Martínez, 80, told the Associated Press as she sat in the parking lot with her 96-year-old husband.

While officials said it was too early to estimate the total damage caused by the string of quakes, hundreds of homes and businesses in the southwest region were damaged or destroyed. In Guánica, a town of roughly 15,000 people, nearly 150 homes were affected by the quake, along with three schools, including a three-story structure where two floors were completely flattened.

Tuesday’s quake was the strongest to hit Puerto Rico since October 1918, when a magnitude 7.3 quake struck near the island’s northwest coast, unleashing a tsunami and killing 116 people.

Nearly all of the island’s more than 3 million people lost power and only 100,000 customers had energy by late Tuesday night, according to the AEE electricity authority.

The agency scrambled to restart power plants that automatically shut down for safety during the quake. The large Costa Sur plant suffered “severe damage” and was put out of service, Vázquez said.

PUERTO RICO HIT WITH 6.4 MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE, ISLANDWIDE BLACKOUT REPORTED

Authorities said they were working on how to shelter people as they handed out blankets, food, and water to families gathered at the gymnasium in Guánica for the second night in a row.

Many who spent the night sleeping in their cars or outside said they were used to hurricanes, but nothing like what has been happening.

“There’s a lot of uncertainty, this is the first time this has happened to us,” Patricia Alonso told Reuters as she was heading to her mother’s apartment building because it had a generator.

The U.S. Geologic Survey said that while it’s virtually certain there will be many aftershocks in the next week, the chance of a magnitude 6 quake — similar to Tuesday’s — or stronger is around 22 percent.

Puerto Rico is still recovering from when Hurricane Maria hit in 2017, causing an estimated 2,975 deaths and more than $100 billion in estimated damage. The island is also working through a bankruptcy process to restructure about $120 billion of debt and pension obligations.

Illegal immigrants rescued at border wall in California after ‘perilous situation’

Three people were rescued over the weekend after they were found trapped in “a precarious situation” on a new section of border wall near San Diego, according to officials.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection news release said that around midnight Sunday, agents on patrol saw three people perched on top of the wall near Otay Mesa. The three, a man and two women, attempted to enter the U.S. illegally in dense fog by climbing the San Diego Sector’s new 30-foot, steel bollard wall before getting stuck, according to officials.

“These three were very fortunate to not have fallen from the top of the wall, which could have resulted in serious injury or death,” CBP San Diego Sector’s Acting Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Heitke said in a statement. “These dangers are not important considerations to smugglers, who place an emphasis on profits over safety.”

The trio ended up on the wet, slippery wall after smugglers abandoned them, which officials said left them in “a precarious situation.”

Agents called in firefighters with San Diego Fire Department to get the group down safely using a ladder truck

Once on the ground, agents questioned the group and found all three were Mexican citizens illegally trying to cross into the United States, Border Patrol said.

A 36-year-old male, a 20-year-old female, and an 18-year-old female were transported to a nearby Border Patrol station for processing. Officials did not say how they got on top of the wall.

The new stretch of border wall includes 14 miles of 18-foot, primary steel bollard fencing built in San Diego County as part of President Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall along the southern border. It has a secondary 30-foot steel bollard barrier behind.

The new construction replaced 8-foot landing mats, usually supported by a steel mesh behind them.

The project to install 14 miles of replacement barriers began in May 2018 and is now complete. The secondary project began in February 2019 and it includes 2 miles of wall that did not exist before, officials say.

Trump visited the San Diego project in September and described it in glowing terms — even signing his name on the barrier.

“So it’s a very powerful, very powerful wall, the likes of which, probably, to this extent, has not been built before,” he said.

“But the numbers now are way down,” he later added. “And as the wall goes up — literally, as the wall goes up, the numbers go down.”

How effectively the new barrier deters migrants and stops crossings is tough to calculate. The construction of the wall, however, did coincide with a sharp decline in apprehensions. In August 2019, there were 3,326 apprehensions in the San Diego sector, down from 6,880 in March and 5,884 in May.

Pennsylvania girl reunited with Minnie Mouse doll that helped through 39 brain surgeries

A Pennsylvania girl was reunited with her beloved Minnie Mouse doll that she said helped her overcome 39 brain surgeries, according to her mother.

Bryanna Ramirez, 13, lost the doll at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Trevose, Pa., last week before she was set to undergo another operation this week. She’s had a brain and connective tissue disorder since birth, according to NBC 10.

The doll was a little stuffed companion that had been through her side for every surgery since she was 18 months old.

“UPDATE!!! WE HAVE MINNIE!! WE HAVE MINNIE!! Thank you for all the shares and prayers,” her mother, Niki Dougherty-Ramirez wrote Tuesday on Facebook. “We appreciate each and every one of you!! This was one of the worst couple [of] days. There were so many tear[s] shed by all of us. Bryanna is soooooo ecstatic to have her in her arms again. Now she can eat and sleep again!!! This poor thing hasn’t eaten in days. Thank you again so much to EVERYONE we can not thank you enough.”

After losing Minnie, Ramirez said her daughter was “beyond heartbroken” and added it was “the only thing that helps her get through all that she goes through.” She added that she thought Minnie had been left in the car at first.

“This Minnie has been through all 40 of her Brain Surgeries with her and this doll means the world to this child,” Ramirez said. “She is a MESS!! We NEED TO FIND MINNIE!!”

People throughout the community came to her aid after the post, including the Bensalem Police Department, the Chick-fil-A restaurant on Horizon Boulevard and its employees.

“It was very emotional, to know what the kid went through with all these operations. This thing went with her through every operation,” A Chick-fil-A employee told NBC 10.

“Dozens” of U.S. and allied troops were transported to Kuwait aboard Canadian aircraft ahead of missile strikes that targeted military bases in Iraq, according to a report.

The relocation effort began Monday and continued Tuesday, with the military personnel leaving Iraq for safety reasons on numerous Canadian C-17 Globemaster aircraft.

Senior military sources said civilians and unarmed personnel were being prioritized, according to Canada’s Global News.

Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said Tuesday that the Defense Department was considering numerous steps to shield U.S. personnel.

“As we evaluate the situation and our response, we will take all necessary measures to protect and defend U.S. personnel, partners, and allies in the region,” Hoffman said.

Canadian Gen. Jonathan Vance, chief of the country’s defense staff, said in a letter regarding deployed military in the Middle East that some of their people were being moved to ensure their safety and security.

“Some of our people will be moved temporarily from Iraq to Kuwait,” he wrote Monday.

He later tweeted: “I can assure you that all deployed CAF personnel are safe & accounted for following missile attacks in Iraq. We remain vigilant.”

According to the Government of Canada, people traveling to Kuwait should exercise a high degree of caution when traveling due to the threat of terrorism in the region, while a non-essential travel risk has been issued for the town of Jaleeb Al-Shuyoukh due to high crime rates.

NATO said it was shifting some of its troops out of Iraq amid tensions over the killing of Iran’s Gen. Qassem Soleimani in an airstrike in Baghdad last week.

“We have temporarily suspended our training on the ground, and we are taking all precautions necessary to protect our people,” NATO said. “This includes the temporary repositioning of some personnel to different locations both inside and outside of Iraq.”
