Wild California car chase ends after rolling shootout

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Wild California car chase ends after rolling shootout fox-news/us fnc/us fnc DOWNEY, Calif. Associated Press article 39451536-1496-5944-9d74-c3d33281884f

A wild car chase in the Los Angeles area has ended after a rolling shootout between a passenger and pursuing officers.

Authorities chased the Toyota Prius Friday afternoon. The car sped through traffic, and at one point a man leaned out of a passenger window and shot at pursuers.

The car finally came to a halt in the Los Angeles suburb of Downey, where the woman driver, who had blood on her shirt, surrendered.

However, the passenger remains in the car. It’s not immediately clear whether he was hit by gunfire because officers haven’t approached the car.

There was no immediate report on how the chase began.

Authorities say victim in Tennessee killings was decapitated

Westlake Legal Group authorities-say-victim-in-tennessee-killings-was-decapitated Authorities say victim in Tennessee killings was decapitated JONATHAN MATTISE and TRAVIS LOLLER fox-news/us/disasters/fires fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 67c06360-0e91-595f-b341-601a913eb618

Authorities revealed Friday that there was an eighth victim in a mass killing last month in rural Tennessee and his head was found 25 yards from his body.

Seven warrants were filed Thursday and Friday on first-degree murder charges against 25-year-old Michael Cummins, who has a criminal record and a history of court-ordered mental illness evaluation. A criminal homicide warrant was filed earlier.

According to the newest affidavit, an officer was dispatched to investigate a fire and a missing resident on April 17, 10 days before the discovery of the other bodies. The officer found Jim Dunn’s headless body about 75 yards away from a burned cabin. His head was about 25 yards away from his body, it says.

Cummins was later seen with a rifle that looked like one of Dunn’s that had gone missing, and on April 27, authorities discovered Dunn’s missing rifle at a home where six of the bodies were found, including Cummins’ parents, it says.

Footprints in blood found inside that home matched a pair of girl’s shoes that Cummins admitted to wearing and leaving at his uncle’s trailer, the affidavit says.

The eight victims died from blunt force head injuries, the affidavit states. The youngest was a 12-year-old girl.

Another person was injured but alive. Cummins is charged with criminal attempt to commit first-degree murder in that case.

Once the bodies were found, Cummins fled into the woods the night of April 27, and was shot and wounded by law enforcement officers after brandishing a hatchet, another affidavit says. He also had stolen the car belonging to one of the victims and abandoned it in a creek bed, according to court records.

Cummins was arrested and hospitalized. He was released from the hospital Friday and charged. He is being held in the Tennessee Department of Corrections Special Needs Unit, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

He had been within days of being arrested for probation violations when the bodies were discovered April 27 at two of the Sumner County homes.

Cummins, 25, had been on probation after serving just 16 months of a 10-year sentence for attempting to burn down a neighbor’s house in September 2017 and assaulting her when she tried to put out the fire.

He was released on probation in January, but his probation officer had been preparing an arrest warrant for probation violations, Sumner District Attorney Ray Whitley has said.

Cummins violated a no-contact order with the neighbor whose home he tried to burn and failed to get a required mental health evaluation, a previous affidavit says.

Cummins faced a string of charges beginning in February 2017 with the theft of a neighbor’s turkey and game camera, court records show. In April, he was sentenced to probation and ordered to seek mental health treatment, but less than a month later he assaulted his grandmother while stealing his mother’s purse, the records show.

Back in court in August, he was again given probation and this time ordered to attend a domestic violence classes. It was just the next month that he tried to burn down his neighbor’s mobile home by stuffing garbage between the insulation and the floorboards and setting it on fire.

Massachusetts teen mauled to death by “pack of dogs” he was tending, police

A Massachusetts teen died Thursday night after police say he was mauled to death by a “pack of dogs.”

Ryan Hazel, 14, was pronounced dead on the scene after suffering “traumatic injuries to various areas of his body” from an apparent dog attack, Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn said at a press conference on Friday.

According to authorities, Ryan was dropped off by his grandmother at 2477 Maple Swamp Rd. in Dighton, Mass., some 46 miles south of Boston, around 6 p.m.

Quinn said that the young teen had an “arrangement” with the property owner, who was later identified as 49-year-old Scott Dunmore, to tend to his animals when he was out of town.

“He was going there to take care of several animals on the property while the homeowner was in Boston,” he said. “The victim took care of the homeowners dogs and other animals on a regular basis.”

Ryan’s grandmother told police that she would normally wait for him to finish, a process that normally took between 30 and 45 minutes, but this time she grew concerned when the teen hadn’t returned after an hour.

She contacted Ryan’s parents who were in New York at the time and they contacted a neighbor to check on the boy.

When the neighbor arrived on the property, which was described as a large lot with several buildings on it, he saw the victim lying in the yard surrounded by dogs, suffering from “traumatic injuries to various areas of his body,” Quinn said.

The neighbor attempted to perform CPR but Ryan was pronounced dead once first responders arrived on the scene.

Quinn declined to comment further on the victim’s condition or the manner in which the dogs were found. He did say that dogs did not appear to be “malnourished.”

There were four loose dogs in the yard, a Belgian Malinois and several Dutch Shepherds. Seven other dogs were caged at the time of the attack.

The eleven dogs were taken into “custody” by local animal control where they will be quarantined for 10 days as the law requires.

“It does not appear that any foul play is suspected at this time. This was clearly a terrible tragedy for the victim his family and his friends and the town. My heart goes out to all of them,” Quinn said.

He added that the homeowner has cooperated with authorities but that his dogs were not licensed in the county. The majority of the dogs belonged to the homeowner but he was also watching several dogs that did not belong to him.

Police said there have never been any calls about the property in the past other than a reported house fire in February.

US moving Patriot missile battery to Mideast to counter Iran

Westlake Legal Group us-moving-patriot-missile-battery-to-mideast-to-counter-iran US moving Patriot missile battery to Mideast to counter Iran LOLITA C. BALDOR fox-news/us/military fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 719288fc-a315-5ce2-af8b-ab6cb09dde1d

The U.S. will move a Patriot missile battery into the Middle East to counter threats from Iran, the Pentagon said Friday, reflecting ongoing concerns that Tehran may be planning to attack America forces or interests in the region.

The Defense Department released a statement about the move but provided no details. An official said the decision comes after intelligence showed that the Iranians have loaded military equipment and missiles onto small boats controlled by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. The official was not authorized to discuss the information publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Officials had said earlier this week that sending a Patriot battery to the area was under discussion and was part of the initial request made by the Pentagon’s U.S. Central Command. They said it took a few days to get final approval for the Patriot, a long-range, all-weather air defense system to counter tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and advanced aircraft.

The U.S. removed Patriot missile batteries from Bahrain, Kuwait and Jordan late last year. It was not clear if the battery would go back to one of those countries.

U.S. officials announced Sunday that they would rush an aircraft carrier strike group and bombers to the region. The aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and accompanying ships have passed through the Suez Canal and are now in the Red Sea.

Officials had initially indicated that the military moves were based in part on indications that Iran had moved short-range ballistic missiles onto small boats called dhows along its shore.

Officials would not say if the intelligence showed that the boats have mobile launchers on them. But a notice to mariners in the region has warned of potential threats to commercial maritime traffic.

John Bolton, the national security adviser, announced the initial moves on Sunday, citing “troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” but did not explain what they were.

On Friday, a defense official said the Iranian threats also include potential attacks by Iranian proxies, such as Shia militias in Iraq.

Several officials said they have not yet seen any tangible move by Iran in reaction to the U.S. military shifts in the area. But they also noted there have been no attacks.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a quick visit Tuesday to Baghdad to meet with top leaders and underscore Iraq’s need to protect Americans in their country.

The Pentagon also said Friday that the USS Arlington, an amphibious transport ship, will move to the Middle East region earlier than planned. The ship is in Europe and will be replacing the USS McHenry, which is scheduled to leave.

Driver in deadly 1981 Brink’s heist freed from prison

Judith Clark, who entered prison as a left-wing revolutionary defiantly refusing to participate in her own murder trial, walked free on Friday as a 69-year-old woman acclaimed for her work behind bars with service dogs, AIDS patients and inmates with babies.

Clark made her initial report to her parole officer after leaving prison, state corrections spokesman Thomas Mailey said.

Clark will live in Manhattan. She will “be closely supervised to ensure her full compliance with all of the conditions of her parole,” Mailey said.

Clark, sentenced to 75-years-to-life for her role as getaway driver in a deadly 1981 Brink’s heist in suburban New York, became eligible for parole after Gov. Andrew Cuomo granted her clemency in 2016. The Democrat praised her as a model prisoner. Supporters said she embodied the prison system’s ideals as an institution of rehabilitation rather than retribution.

But some law enforcement officials, politicians and families of victims opposed her release. The $1.6 million armored truck robbery led to the shooting deaths of Brink’s guard Peter Paige and Nyack police officers Edward O’Grady and Waverly Brown.

In a 2-1 decision on April 17 granting her release, the parole board noted that Clark’s original life sentence was ordered in part because of her “unrepentant behavior and refusal of counsel.” The board said she had since disavowed her anarchist political views and apologized to the community and her victims.

The board listed Clark’s numerous achievements in prison, including earning a master’s degree, training service dogs for veterans and law enforcement, founding an AIDS education program, securing a college program for inmates and working in a prison nursery mentoring new mothers.

The dissenting board member cited the violence of the crime, the impact on the families of the slain officers and guard and Clark’s involvement in the revolutionary May 19th Communist Organization that was founded by members of the Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army in the late 70s. In addition to the Brink’s robbery, May 19th committed a series of bombings at government and military buildings.

Her lawyers said Clark will live with a friend in New York City and work for Hour Children, an organization that helps incarcerated women and their children rejoin the community.

What remained of a gas station in Virginia smoldered on Friday following an earlier blast that sent multiple people to the hospital.

Responders arrived at the scene in Buena Vista, Va., due to an explosion that went off around 9:50 a.m., WSET reported, citing police. A fire ensued but has since reportedly been put out.

Authorities are probing what may have triggered the explosion “and at this time it does not appear suspicious in nature,” Virginia State Police Sgt. Rick Garletts said in a statement obtained by ABC News.

Four adults were transported to one hospital following the incident, while another individual is thought to have been brought to a different facility, state police said, according to WSET.

Video from the scene captured fire officials working amid the rubble of what remained from the gas station, as well as charred vehicles.

Authorities “are working to account for all the individuals that may have been located in the building at the time of the explosion,” Garletts said, according to ABC News.

A 12-year-old reporter who runs a newspaper in Pennsylvania has delivered the commencement address at West Virginia University’s Reed College of Media.

Hilde Kate Lysiak has run the Orange Street News in since 2014 in Selinsgrove, 150 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

She first drew national attention in 2016 when she wrote about a suspected murder in Selinsgrove and ended up having to defend herself after some locals lashed out about a young girl covering violent crimes.

She had a confrontation in February with an Arizona marshal who threatened to arrest her for filming him on duty.

On Friday, Hilde joked that she’s sure some in the crowd in Morgantown were wondering why the university couldn’t “afford a full grown human” to give the speech.

She went on to share the lessons she’s learned in the field and tells graduates to “stay laser focused on the truth.”

Farrakhan delivers insult while denying he’s anti-Semitic

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Farrakhan delivers insult while denying he's anti-Semitic HERBERT G. McCANN fox-news/us/religion/islam fox-news/us/religion/christianity fnc/us fnc f957d566-29f9-5b9d-9045-6935cfcd04e1 Associated Press article

Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan referenced “Satanic Jews” in a speech denying allegations of anti-Semitism, misogyny and homophobia after Facebook banned him from the social media platform.

During the speech Thursday at a Roman Catholic church on Chicago’s South Side, Farrakhan asserted people shouldn’t be angry with him if “I stand on God’s word,” also saying that he knows “the truth,” and “separate the good Jews from the Satanic Jews.”

Farrakhan was invited to speak at the church by the Rev. Michael Pfleger after Facebook banned Farrakhan, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and conservative personality Milo Yiannopoulos, saying they violated its ban on “dangerous individuals.”

Farrakhan, who turns 86 this weekend, said those who think he is a hater don’t know him and have never had a conversation with him. He added those who hated him before and got to know him came to love him. He went on to say Facebook’s contention that he is dangerous is true because what he says can be researched by his listeners.

“Social media you met me tonight. I plead with the rulers, let the truth be taught,” he said.

The Archdiocese of Chicago distanced itself from Pfleger’s decision to invite Farrakhan to St. Sabina Catholic Church, saying Pfleger did not consult with Cardinal Blase Cupich or other diocese officials before extending the invitation.

“There is no place in American life for discriminatory rhetoric of any kind,” the archdiocese said in a statement. “At a time when hate crimes are on the rise, when religious believers are murdered in their places of worship, we cannot countenance any speech that dehumanizes persons on the basis of ethnicity, religious belief, economic status or country of origin.”

Farrakhan noted Cupich’s predecessor, Cardinal Francis George, visited him in his home and had dinner with him, and he met with Chicago Cardinal Joseph Bernardin.

“For those angry about me about coming to St. Sabina, how many would be angry with me meeting with Cardinal George and with the previous cardinal,” he said. “That kind of hatred is insanity.”

Pfleger, one of Chicago’s most prominent activists, defended his invitation, saying he was responding to the Facebook ban as a defender of free speech.

Hours before Farrakhan was scheduled to speak, officials of the Illinois Holocaust Museum spoke out against Pfleger for “giving hatred a platform.”

Museum president and Holocaust survivor Fritzie Fritzshall said when community leaders like Pfleger provide a platform for bigotry and anti-Semitism, “it increases the threat against all of humanity.”

Critics point to Farrakhan’s characterization of Judaism as a “gutter religion’ as evidence of anti-Semitism. And perhaps, most famously, in the 1980s, he came under intense criticism for what was seen as praise for Adolf Hitler. Widely quoted for calling Hitler a “great man,” Farrakhan said the reports weren’t accurate, and that he’d actually called the Nazi leader “wickedly great.”

His allegedly anti-Semitic, anti-white and anti-gay comments have prompted the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center to label him an extremist.

Facebook, which did not detail specific comments that led to the ban of Farrakhan and the others, says it has always banned people or groups that proclaim a violent or hateful mission or are engaged in acts of hate or violence, regardless of political ideology.

Teen with knife apologizes after being shot by police

Body camera footage that was released Thursday by California’s Oxnard Police Department showed a 17-year-old girl apologizing to an officer after she ran at him with a large knife.

Chief Scott Whitney described the confrontation on Friday, May 3, in an edited video package that was posted online by the department. The teenager’s face was blurred in the video due to her age.

Officers had received multiple calls regarding a woman with a 12-inch knife who “seemed disturbed,” Whitney said.

Officer Timothy Roberts’ body camera showed him telling the girl to not to reach for the weapon and to sit on the curb. Roberts was the first to arrive at the scene. When told not to reach for the knife, the teenager asked what would happen if she did.

“Then something bad is going to happen,” Roberts said.

“Drop it,” the officer could be heard saying.

“No,” she replied.

“Come on shoot me,” she continued. “I’ve been waiting all day.”

The officer continued to move away from her while commanding her to drop the knife. The teenager refused to drop the knife and continued to walk toward him.

When she suddenly began running at Roberts with the knife in her right hand, he shot her multiple times and she collapsed.

Following the shooting, the officer was able to get the knife away.

“I’m so sorry,” the teenager said while writhing on the pavement.

“It’s OK,” an officer is heard saying.

The officer was seen giving her medical aid as they waited for an ambulance.

The girl remained hospitalized Thursday in critical but stable condition, officials said. The investigation was ongoing and Roberts was placed on administrative leave, in accordance with police policy. The second officer arrived moments before the shooting and was preparing to use a beanbag weapon to try to subdue the girl, according to a police statement.
