US Border Patrol boat shot at from Mexican riverbank

Westlake Legal Group border-patrol-rio-grande-boat US Border Patrol boat shot at from Mexican riverbank Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc article 11a74984-22d8-52f9-bfaf-1c5c5c3d8c26

The U.S. Border Patrol confirmed with Fox News Friday that a vessel stationed on the Rio Grande was shot at multiple times by gunfire coming from the Mexican riverbank.

Agents assigned to the RGV Marine Unit in the Rio Grande Valley sector said that at around 2:25 a.m, they saw four people on the Fronton Main Landing near Fronton, Texas, who shot more than 50 rounds at them using automatic weapons.

No agents were injured, but Customs and Border Protection sources told Fox News the “vessel was hit several times.”

CBP says the investigation is ongoing and the Mexican nationals thought be responsible have not yet been identified.

The Rio Grande, which flows from the southwest of the United States into parts of northern Mexico, forms part of the U.S.-Mexico border.  Violent gangs have roamed the region across the river from Texas.

The RGV Sector has been a hotbed for illegal-immigrant apprehensions with 36,872 migrants apprehended in July, according to CBP.  U.S. authorities have also forced thousands of asylum seekers to wait in Mexico, citing capacity issues.

Soldier arrested with 2 others in death of stepfather found in Oklahoma cemetery

An active-duty Army man has been arrested with two others in the death of his stepfather in Oklahoma last month.

Investigators opened an investigation after finding the body of Bob Dalpoas, 49, of Haileyville, Okla., on the Fourth of July in a cemetery, according to reports.

On Wednesday, Pittsburg County Sheriff Chris Morris announced the arrest of Dalpoas’ 21-year-old stepson, Tyler Morgan, and two other men, KOTV reported.

“We had a theory from pretty much the beginning that involved these three,” said Randy Hass, a detective in the sheriff’s office, according to the station.

Jimmy Nace, 46, of Haileyville, and Matt Vermillion, 40, of Krebs, were the other men charged. They were jailed in McAlester.

An arrest affidavit says Morgan told Army investigation that Dalpoas went down after a fight on July 3 with Nace in Haileyville, The McAlester News-Capital reported Thursday.

The affidavit says that at the cemetery, Morgan told the investigators that he and Nace grabbed a concrete bench and dropped it on Dalpoas’ head twice, the paper reported. Nace then dropped the bench on Dalpoas head a third time.

Morgon said Nace then set the man’s body on fire with lighter fluid to “destroy evidence,” according to the affidavit, the paper reported.

Hawaii man sentences himself to 5 years in prison for burglary

A man facing six months behind bars in a burglary case in Hawaii asked for — and received — a sentence that will keep him locked up for five years.

“I just want the five,” Kyle Neuberger, 34, told the astonished judge Thursday, according to the Garden Island newspaper.

Neuberger had pleaded guilty to breaking into a Wailua home March 2 in exchange for a six-month jail sentence.

His request for a longer sentence came after the owner of the house said the break-in had traumatized her and her granddaughter, according to the paper.

“We want to make sure he gets help,” the woman said according to the paper. “I don’t want to see him on the streets anymore. And that’s the end of the story.”

Neuberger apologized as he asked for “an open five.”

“I’m sorry for what I did,” he was quoted as saying by the newspaper. “I didn’t intend to stay in the residence. I was kind of out of my mind. I believe I deserve the five-year term.”

After delivering the sentence, Judge Randal Valenciano told Neuberger, “Good luck,” according to the Garden Island.

Elderly couple found dead in apparent murder-suicide, note says they could not afford medical care

A Washington state man allegedly killed himself after killing his wife, and left a note for authorities saying that he was driven to do so because they could not afford to pay for medical care for her serious health conditions.

The man, identified by the Whatcom County Medical Examiner Gary Goldfogel in a statement to Fox News as Brian S. Jones, was 77, and his wife, Patricia Whitney-Jones, was 76.

Brian Jones called police on Wednesday morning to say that he was going to kill himself, and told the dispatcher that authorities would find a note in his home with an explanation as well as instructions. The dispatcher unsuccessfully tried to keep him on the telephone, according to the Bellingham Herald.

“It’s very tragic that one of our senior citizens would find himself in such desperate circumstances where he felt murder and suicide were the only option,” Sheriff Bill Elfo said in a statement.

Upon entering the home, police found the couple lying side by side, the newspaper said. Jones allegedly shot his wife once, and himself three times — including once in the head — with a semi-automatic handgun, according to the medical examiner statement to Fox News. The statement said both had “significant natural health disease conditions.”

A neighbor, Sherrie Schulteis, told the Lynden Tribune that despite many friendly conversations with Brian Jones, she was surprised to learn of their struggles. She said their deaths had shocked the neighborhood.

“[Brian and I] were always waving and talking about our yards or our flowers,” Schulteis said. “It’s a little tiny community where we all know each other, but we don’t really know each other.”

5-foot python slithers out of bathroom light fixture while children brushed teeth

Two Australian children were brushing their teeth and getting ready for bed Monday when they were confronted by a 5-foot long python in their bathroom.

The snake had slithered its way into their Brisbane, Queensland home, eventually finding its way through a missing lightbulb fixture in the bathroom ceiling.

MASSIVE 16-FOOT PYTHON WITH NEST OF EGGS REMOVED FROM FLORIDA EVERGLADES

Snake catcher Bryce Lockett was called by the family to remove the reptile from their home, according to The Sun. He later released it into a local creek after taking some photographs for a keepsake.

“I’ve been catching snakes for about 7 years now, I’ve seen them all in various situations,” Lockett said.

“Carpet pythons are nocturnal and coldblooded, which is why this one must have slithered down to enjoy the heat of the lamp – they’re harmless but they don’t like to be disturbed.”

Lockett said it was surprising that the snake managed to slip through the light fixture, adding that one-third of Australian residents have snakes hidden in their roofs.

“People are generally quite terrified of them but I’ve owned snakes my whole life so I’m not too fazed.”

Suspect steals gun during ‘anonymous’ masked orgy in Florida

A suspect stole a handgun during an “anonymous” masked orgy last month in central Florida, and sheriff’s deputies have said they have no leads.

Around 20 guests participated in the orgy, which was at a private residence in Deltona, Fla., about 30 miles north of Orlando during the weekend of July 19, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.

The theme was “anonymous sex” and participants were encouraged to use fake names, invite friends and “come and go as they pleased” during the weekend, according to the News-Journal. The party was also advertised on social media.

The 9-mm Glock was left on the nightstand of the master bedroom during the party and police said the gun’s owner wasn’t able to make any identifications.

“We’re probably not going to solve this one,” Volusia County Sheriff’s Sgt. Todd Smith said Thursday. “And DNA is not going to be an option.”

After the theft was reported, the homeowner was “apprehensive” about giving more details to detectives, but eventually told them about the party.

He said he probably only knew five or six of the guests, the News-Journal reported.

Gun background checks, ‘red flag’ laws may be on Senate agenda in the fall, Mitch McConnell says

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start your Friday…

McConnell: Background checks and ‘red flag’ laws may be on Senate’s agenda in the fall
After several calls to bring the Senate back from recess to consider gun violence legislation following last weekend’s mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he and President Trump are considering several options, including background checks, and are “anxious for an outcome” when lawmakers return to Capitol Hill in the fall. McConnell won’t cut short the Senate vacation, as some lawmakers and 2020 presidential candidates have asked.

But he told a Kentucky radio station Thursday that Trump called him and they discussed several ideas, including background checks and “red flag” laws that allow authorities to seize firearms from someone deemed a threat to themselves or others. The president, he said, is “anxious to get an outcome and so am I.” Rush Limbaugh, meanwhile, has urged Trump not to trust Democrats to come to any compromise.

FBI kept using Steele dossier for FISA applications despite documenting ex-spy’s bias, documents show
The FBI continued to use British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s unverified Trump dossier in multiple Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application renewals, even after the bureau formally documented Steele’s anti-Trump bias following the 2016 presidential election, records obtained by Fox News show. The partially redacted documents, first acquired by Judicial Watch, also revealed that top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr maintained contact with Steele for at least six months after Steele was fired by the FBI for unauthorized media contacts in November 2016.

The records further confirm that Ohr knew of Steele’s anti-Trump bias before the 2016 election. “This is just the tip of the iceberg,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News’ “Hannity” on Thursday.

Latest Biden gaffe: Dem frontrunner says ‘poor kids’ just as bright as ‘white kids’
Former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic primary frontrunner, made another gaffe Thursday when he told a crowd in Iowa that “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids.” Biden, who famously directed supporters to a wrong number during last month’s debate — and misidentified the sites of recent mass shootings — quickly corrected himself after some applause from the crowd at the Asian & Latino Coalition PAC, and finished, “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.”

It’s been a shaky week for Biden. He seemed to mix up his words while on the stump at the Iowa State Fair on Thursday. A few days ago, he mistakenly referred to the shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio as “the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before.” He later corrected himself, according to a pool report.

Dems oppose NY bill making water attacks on police a felony
A Republican bill that would increase penalties for throwing water on cops is facing some initial Democratic opposition months before it could even be taken up. GOP lawmakers in New York are introducing a bill that would make throwing or spraying water “or any other substance” on a police officer a class E felony and punishable by up to four years in jail. Republicans in the state’s assembly were angered by viral videos of cops being drenched by groups of local residents — with NYPD officers apparently feeling unable to respond and walking away. Police have since made a number of arrests related to the cases, but the incidents have sparked national attention, with President Trump calling them “a total disgrace” last month.

‘The Hunt’ is still on, despite controversy 
NBC Universal still plans to release the controversial satirical movie “The Hunt” as scheduled on Sept. 27, despite significant backlash over the film, which depicts privileged vacationers hunting “deplorables” for sport. “There are no plans to not release the movie. No plans to move the release,” a studio source told Fox News. Characters in the R-rated film refer to the victims as “deplorables,” which is what Hillary Clinton infamously dubbed some Trump supporters during the 2016 election.

NBC’s Universal Pictures, which shares parent company Comcast with NBC News and MSNBC, told Fox News on Wednesday that the movie’s marketing campaign would be “temporarily paused” on the heels tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Critics say the movie represents a growing war on Trump supporters. Two real-life stories this week arguably illustrate that point: The backlash Equinox and SoulCycle investor Stephen Ross has received for agreeing to host a fundraiser for President Trump on Friday and Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro’s posting of the names and employers of dozens of Trump campaign donors on Twitter.

Texas airport watches as pilot son returns remains of Vietnam vet father

A Southwest pilot flew the plane that returned his Vietnam’s veteran father’s remains to Dallas Thursday – more than half a century after he was deployed to fight for his country.

U.S. Air Force Col.  Roy A. Knight, Jr.’s remains arrived at  Dallas’ Love Field on Thursday and the emotional return was documented by a journalist who was there who covered the shooting in El Paso.

“I’m at the airport in Dallas, waiting for my flight home to DC from El Paso, and something incredible is happening,” reporter Jackson Proskow tweeted.

Knight’s remains were identified earlier this year.

“When he left from this very airport to fight in Vietnam his 5-year-old son came to the airfield and waved goodbye,” Proskow wrote. “It was the last time he would see his father alive.”

Proskow wrote that Knight’s plane was shot down in Laos in 1967. He was first listed as missing in action until he was declared killed in action in 1974, according to his obituary.

“Col. Knight ejected from his aircraft, but no parachute was seen deploying,” a gate agent told Proskow. “A search was undertaken but could not find him.”

“The entire terminal has come to watch this arrival,” he wrote. “Incredible moment to watch. The entire airport fell silent.”

Proskow added the moment was a “privilege” to witness.
