The Latest: Pelosi, Newsom offer condolences after shooting

The Latest on a shooting at a synagogue in Southern California (all times local):

3:30 p.m.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and California Gov. Gavin Newsom offered their condolences to the Jewish community after a man opened fire Saturday at a synagogue outside San Diego.

Authorities say a 19-year-old man opened fire on Chabad of Poway on the last day of Passover, killing one woman and wounding three others, including a girl.

Newsom said “no one should have to fear going to their place of worship.”

Pelosi said on Twitter that she stands with the Jewish community against “this act of hate.”

San Diego County Sheriff William Gore said at a news conference that he had no details on motive.

The attack comes six months after 11 people were killed in the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.

President Donald Trump has offered “deepest sympathies to the families of those affected” by a shooting at a synagogue outside San Diego.

At the White House, Trump said Saturday that the shooting “looked like a hate crime” and called it “hard to believe.” He spoke from the South Lawn before flying to a rally in Wisconsin.

Authorities say a woman has died and three others are hospitalized in stable condition after a shooting at a synagogue outside San Diego.

San Diego County Sheriff William Gore said at a news conference that a white man entered Chabad of Poway on Saturday and opened fire on worshippers with an AR-type assault weapon.

Gore says an off-duty Border Patrol agent believed to be inside the synagogue shot at the suspect as he fled. The sheriff says the agent didn’t hit him but struck his car.

San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit says the 19-year-old suspect called police to report the shooting and a California Highway Patrol officer heard it on a police scanner, saw the suspect and pulled him over. Nisleit says the suspect got out of his car with his hands up and he was taken into custody without incident.

Gore says a woman died from her injuries, while a girl and two men are in the hospital.

Derryl Acosta, a spokesman for Palomar Health Medical Center Hospital, says the four patients were admitted around 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit said there was no known threat after a man was detained in the shooting. However, he said authorities stepped up patrol at places of worship in the area as a precaution.

The Chabad of Poway was worshipping on the last day of Passover, exactly six months since a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue killed 11 people.

Authorities say a shooting at a synagogue outside San Diego has left people injured but the extent is unclear.

San Diego County sheriff’s office also said Saturday on Twitter that a man has been detained in connection with the shooting at the Chabad of Poway.

Officials say deputies were called just before 11:30 a.m.

The shooting came on the last day of Passover and exactly six months since a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue killed 11 people.

An Ohio man is facing charges after authorities said they found him with a 14-year-old California girl who’d been reported missing after she communicated with him online.

The FBI says 39-year-old Jeremy L. Cruz, of Elyria, has been charged with interstate transport of child pornography.

Cruz was arrested April 18 at a family home in Sheffield Lake, about 26 miles (42 km) west of Cleveland. He was with the girl, who’d been reported missing in Santa Maria, California, three days earlier.

Police said the girl had been communicating online with a man they identified through phone records as Cruz. They discovered photos on Cruz’s phone that they believe are child pornography.

The girl has returned home to her family.

Cruz was in federal custody following an initial court appearance Friday.

Georgia beach party reportedly canceled overnight as organizer is arrested, saga likened to Fyre Festival

Merrymakers seeking fun in the sun at this year’s Orange Crush Festival on Tybee Island, Ga., are apparently out of luck – as the event has been reportedly canceled overnight due to the organizer’s arrest, in a saga likened to the infamous Fyre Festival.

Early on Saturday morning, reps for the Tybee Island Police Department (TIPD) took to Facebook to share the news, Fox 28 reports.

Though the TIPD has since removed the post from the platform, a notice posted to the website of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office details that George “Mikey” Turner, an organizer of the festival, was arrested around 11 p.m. on April 26, for maintaining a disorderly house, giving false name, address or birthdate to law enforcment, and criminal damage to property.

Turner has been booked into jail, with bond listed at $2,400.

“The TIPD has arrested the promoter of Orange Crush on felony charges along with city ordinance violations pertaining to promoting an unpermitted event. As a result, all events associated with George “Mikey” Turner are canceled and will not be happening on Tybee Island,” officials for the department wrote online in the now-deleted post. “Please safely enjoy your day at the Beach.”

Reps for the TIPD declined Fox News’ request for comment on the story, directing inquiries to the office of the mayor, who could not be reached for comment.

LOTS OF AMERICANS LIE ABOUT THEIR VACATIONS, STUDY SUGGESTS

The small city of Tybee Island is a barrier island located roughly 18 miles away from Savannah.

As noted by local outlet The Island Packet, the Orange Crush party is an annual beach bash featuring various concerts, models, dancers, dance parties, photographers, car shows. and more. Its website claims the event draws crowds of over 100,000.

The last two years, city officials have voted to restrict alcohol allowed on the island through the Orange Crush revelry weekend.

Social media commenters, meanwhile, had a whole lot to say about the reported cancellation.

“Crush is overwhelming for the locals….. and I have seen why. I have met some very nice folks who attend the event. They followed rules and have common decency. I have also watched as others have come to only wreak havoc,” one Facebook user commented on TIPD’s now-deleted post. “During the event, people have been shot, drugs have been used, weapons have been confiscated, islanders personal items have been trashed, public urination is the norm, and the beach has been left completely trashed.”

“If the folks attended would all follow laws and rules….that’d be great. But that doesn’t happen. My heart is with the Tybee residents,” they concluded.

“Let me be straight. I have no problem with Orange Crush! The issue is that they do not obtain the proper permits so that businesses and public safety can get prepared for such a large on slot of people!” another agreed. “MANY MANY large events go on at Tybee every year when the island is well prepared for it. They go off with little uproar and everyone has a great time.”

“The Orange Crush promoters need to take notes from successful events and obey the laws!” the commenter offered.

“I feel bad for those people who bought all access passes from “orange crush lit” they getting scammed,” one Twitter user chimed in.

“I’m laughing…. folks really still come from outta town to attend ‘orange crush’ y’all are easy to swindle…. have y’all not seen Fyre Festival [?],” another joked.

The Fyre Festival gained viral attention in 2017, when hundreds of attendees flocked to an island in the Bahamas with a promise that guests could vacation in luxury, eat gourmet food and walk amongst Instagram influencers as musical guests performed live.

However, when the festival-goers arrived, they found almost none of the promises were fulfilled. The creator of the festival, Billy McFarland, was ordered to spend six years in prison. He admitted to defrauding investors of $26 million in the 2017 Fyre Festival and over $100,000 in a fraudulent ticket-selling scheme after his arrest in the scam.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft flaunted one of his Super Bowl rings and discussed football with an officer when he was stopped in Florida in January after he allegedly paid to receive sex acts, court records state.

On Jan. 19, Kraft, 77, is said to have asked the officer if he rooted for the Miami Dolphins and mentioned that he was going to Kansas City for the AFC Championship Game the following day. The Kansas Chiefs played Kraft’s Patriots on Jan. 20. The officer, who pulled over Kraft’s Bentley, was not aware of who the billionaire was when he stopped him, the Boston Globe reported.

“Robert Kraft was very polite and respectful during the whole process . . . [he] asked the [officer] if he was a Dolphins fan,’’ prosecutors wrote in the document, according to the Boston Globe. “He then told the officer he was the owner of the Patriots . . . and showed his Super Bowl ring.”

ROBERT KRAFT VIDEO EVIDENCE TO REMAIN SEALED FOR TIME BEING, JUDGE RULES

Police “conducted the traffic stop for the sole purpose of identification,” the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. The following day, Kraft returned to the massage parlor just before traveling to Kansas City for the game, records showed.

Florida prosecutors provided the new details on Friday before a hearing between Kraft’s attorneys and Palm Beach prosecutors. The billionaire’s lawyers asked a judge to throw out a video police said shows Kraft paying for sex at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Fla. Kraft’s high-profile legal team spent six hours Friday questioning the lead detective in the massage parlor prostitution sting that resulted in Kraft being charged with misdemeanor solicitation of a prostitute. The hearing is scheduled to continue Tuesday.

Kraft and 24 other men were charged with paying for sex acts at the spa. Kraft, who was not in court Friday, has pleaded not guilty to paying for sex twice but has also publicly apologized for his behavior. Police secretly installed cameras at the massage parlor in what authorities initially said was an investigation into human trafficking. Prosecutors have since said they found no evidence of trafficking at the spa. Kraft’s lawyers argued the cameras were installed illegally in the spa.

Earlier this week, Circuit Judge Leonard Hanser ruled that video purporting to show Kraft paying to receive sex acts from a worker should not be made public until after the case either goes to trial or is resolved in some other way.

Fox News’ Samuel Chamberlain and the Associated Press contributed to this report.
