Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Georgia officer dies after suffering injuries while on duty Savannah (Ga) fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 1153c5b5-b01c-5729-ac90-4d71dd597716

Police in coastal Georgia say an officer has died after being injured while responding to a call.

The Savannah Police Department said in a news release Sunday that officers were following up on a previous robbery call a little after 8 p.m. Saturday. As they approached a vehicle that matched a description they’d been given, gunshots were fired.

Two officers and a suspect were injured and taken to a hospital. Police did not reveal their identities.

Savannah police say the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been called in to investigate the shooting. The second officer involved was treated and released. The suspect’s condition was not immediately available Sunday.

Las Vegas woman accused of drowning 2-year-old daughter in bathtub

A Las Vegas woman has been accused of murder after calling police to report that her 2-year-old daughter had drowned in the bathtub.

An officer who responded to the call Saturday found the girl face up in the bathtub, which was full of water, Las Vegas police spokesman Lt. Ray Spencer said. The girl was fully clothed.

“Disturbing is an understatement,” Spencer said, according to Fox 5 Las Vegas. “I have officers out here who are extremely shaken up. We have a 2-year-old child that was senselessly murdered.”

The name of the woman and her daughter weren’t released. The mother was arrested on suspicion of murder.

The 911 operator was unable to persuade the woman to rescue the child from the water and administer CPR, he said.

Spencer said it took several minutes for the woman to answer the door when the first officer arrived, the station reported.

The spokesman said police went to the apartment earlier Saturday in response to a domestic disturbance report involving the woman and a man who may have been her husband or boyfriend, the station reported.

Spencer said the man wasn’t there when officers returned and he wasn’t a suspect.

Massachusetts trooper responds to call of injured dog, finds wounded coyote pup

A Massachusetts state trooper was in for a surprise earlier this month when the “wounded dog” he tried to rescue turned out to be an injured coyote pup.

Trooper Carlo Mastromattei responded to a call on May 5 about the animal on the side of a road in Revere, a city roughly 5 miles north of Boston, state police wrote on Facebook.

When Mastromattei arrived, he spotted the animal on a busy parkway. Instead of a dog, he “saw a small frightened, solitary coyote pup. The pup’s mother was nowhere in sight.”

As state police said, “the baby coyote’s adventure was far from over.” Mastromattei took the coyote pup home, where it stayed with the trooper and his girlfriend.

The following day, the coyote was transported to Tufts Wildlife Clinic in Grafton, “where he was examined and determined to be healthy,” officials said.

The pup was scheduled to be transferred to a wildlife specialist in the Berkshires to be rehabilitated and later released in the wild.

Leaked letters reveal details of NRA chief’s alleged spending

National Rifle Association Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre billed the group’s ad agency $39,000 for one day of shopping at a Beverly Hills clothing boutique, $18,300 for a car and driver in Europe and had the agency cover $13,800 in rent for a summer intern, according to newly revealed NRA internal documents.

The documents, posted anonymously on the internet, provide new details of the clothing, travel and other expenses totaling more than $542,000 that Ackerman McQueen Inc. alleges Mr. LaPierre billed to it.

TRUMP SAYS NRA ‘UNDER SIEGE’ BY DEM OFFICIALS WHO WANT TO DESTROY IT

The travel expenses allegedly include more than $200,000 in “Air Transportation” costs during a one-month period in late 2012 and early 2013, in part related to a two-week trip over Christmas to the Bahamas by Mr. LaPierre.

The additional details behind the ad agency’s claims comes as Mr. LaPierre faces internal scrutiny at the NRA over his expenses amid an extraordinary falling-out between the NRA and Ackerman McQueen.

The NRA released a statement from Carolyn Meadows, its new president, who said the “entire board is fully aware of these issues. We have full confidence in Wayne LaPierre.” She added that “it is troubling and pathetic that some people would resort to leaking information to advance their agendas.”

Mr. LaPierre didn’t respond to a request for comment sent through the NRA.

This story continues in the Wall Street Journal.

Man who reported girl missing arrested in her disappearance

The man who reported 4-year-old Maleah Davis had been abducted from him last weekend was arrested near Houston Saturday in connection with her disappearance and police say they have found blood in his apartment linked to her.

Darion Vence, who had lived with Maleah and her mother, was arrested without incident at his brother’s home in Sugar Land, Texas, about 22 miles (35 kilometers) southwest of Houston, a statement from Houston police said. He was charged with tampering with evidence. Police spokesman Kese Smith declined to give more detail on the charge.

Vence told police last Saturday that men in a pickup truck abducted him, Maleah and his 2-year-old son before freeing him and the boy. But Sugar Land police, who initially interviewed him, said his story kept changing and didn’t add up.

Houston police set out in the press release Saturday some of those false claims.

Vence reported that his silver Nissan Altima was taken in the abduction but surveillance video showed that vehicle was used to drop Vence off later at a hospital, where he first reported the abduction, police said.

“His story turned out not to be the case, including the fact that there was that blood evidence in the apartment linked to Maleah,” Smith said.

Asked if police believe Vence killed Maleah, Smith said: “At this point in time those are the charges we have filed and I can’t say any more than that.”

He said authorities have not found the girl and the investigation is continuing.

The police statement said Vence was observed carrying a full laundry basket from the apartment. That basket was later found in the trunk of the Nissan along with a gas can.

Maleah’s mother Brittany Bowens, said through a spokesman that Vence is her former fiance. Bowens appeared outside her apartment Friday as Quanell X, a local civil rights activist, addressed reporters on her behalf.

Quanell X said that Vence had abused Maleah and that Bowens believes Vence harmed the girl.

Police have described Vence as Maleah’s stepfather. But Quanell X said that Vence and Bowens were recently in a fight and she broke off their engagement.

Child Protective Services removed Maleah and her brothers from the home Vence and Bowens shared in August after the girl suffered a head wound, but the children were returned in February, according to an agency spokeswoman.

The suspects used the false names “Becky” and “Victoria” to match with male victims and scheduled late night meetings on secluded streets near parks, where they then beat, robbed and carjacked the victims at gunpoint wearing masks, according to a press release from the San Jose Police Department.

Each of the five teens faces multiple counts of robbery, carjacking, auto theft and hit-run.

At least 11 men fell prey to the Tinder trap allegedly set by the teens.

Tinder’s site includes tips for dating safely through the app and encourages users to do their due diligence before meeting matches in person.

“Meet for the first time in a populated, public place – never in a private or remote location, and never at your home or apartment,” Tinder advises.

Dating apps have come under scrutiny after crimes related to the sites spiked from 329 in 2015 to 658 in 2018, according to BBC 5 Live in the U.K.

In 2018, a 27-year-old man was arrested in North Hollywood California in connection with the death of a 29-year-old nurse he met on Tinder.

The Latest: Police: blood in man’s apartment linked to girl

The Latest on the disappearance of 4-year-old Maleah Davis (all times local):

6 p.m.

Houston police say they found “blood evidence” in the apartment of Darion Vence that matches that of the missing 4-year-old girl, Maleah Davis.

In a statement on the arrest of Vence, Houston police say that he has been charged with tampering with evidence.

They also say that Vence was observed carrying a full laundry basket from the apartment.

The laundry basket was found in the trunk of Vence’s silver Nisson Altima, which was recovered in Missouri City, Texas, Thursday.

Vence reported last Saturday that Maleah had been abducted from him.

5:30 p.m.

The man who reported a 4-year-old Texas girl had been abducted from him last weekend has been arrested near Houston.

U.S. Marshals’ southern district spokesman Alfredo Perez says that Darion Vence was taken into custody Saturday at his brother’s house in Sugar Land, Texas, about 22 miles (35 kilometers) southwest of Houston.

Perez says the Houston Police Department requested U.S. Marshals assist in serving the arrest warrant. It was not immediately known if the arrest was related to the disappearance of Maleah Davis. Houston police could not be reached for comment.

Vence told police last Saturday that men in a pickup truck abducted him, Maleah and his 2-year-old son before freeing him and the boy. But Sugar Land police, who initially interviewed him, said his story kept changing and didn’t add up.

Murder suspect wounded in shootout with California police

A man suspected of killing a liquor store owner near Los Angeles is hospitalized with at least one gunshot wound suffered during a shootout with police at the end of a chase.

The county sheriff’s department says the man is in critical condition Saturday.

He is believed to be the gunman who walked into a Downey liquor store on Tuesday and shot down its owner.

The high-speed chase began Friday afternoon when a black Prius he was riding in refused to pull over. During the pursuit, the suspect fired a large-caliber revolver at police.

It ended when traffic trapped the Prius and police who pulled up in the next lane riddled the car with gunfire.

Authorities said a woman driving the Prius was shot, but her injury was not life-threatening.

5 more ex-students sue Ohio State claiming abuse by doctor

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news 5 more ex-students sue Ohio State claiming abuse by doctor fox-news/us/education/college fnc/us fnc COLUMBUS, Ohio Associated Press article 6a2c4ddd-3fb1-5b10-aa1b-4b33629ab052

Five more former Ohio State University students who claim they were abused by a former university physician and team doctor have sued the school.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the plaintiffs in the federal lawsuit filed Friday are identified as “John Does” to protect their identities. Three of the men say they were wrestlers and two sought treatment at a university health center.

As in previous lawsuits, the former students say they were fondled and asked inappropriate questions during examinations by the late Dr. Richard Strauss , who worked at the university from 1978 to 1998. Strauss killed himself in California in 2005.

A university spokesman said Saturday that Ohio State is reviewing the latest lawsuit.

The school is awaiting results from a law firm’s investigation into allegations of abuse by Strauss.
