Woman caught on camera dumping puppies next to dumpster behind store in Coachella, California

A woman in California is being sought by officials after she was caught Thursday on a security camera dumping a bag full of puppies next to a dumpster behind a store.

The Riverside County Animal Services said in a Facebook post the incident happened in Coachella after a woman was captured on surveillance video around 1 p.m. pulling up in a Jeep and getting out of the vehicle carrying a plastic bag.

The woman can then be seen walking towards a dumpster used for recycling materials and dropping the clear, plastic bag next to the bin before driving away.

“There is no excuse for dumping puppies,” Animal Services Commander Chris Mayer said in a statement. “Especially in today’s age when we or other shelters would be willing to get these animals to foster parents or rescue partners. This was a shameful act.”

About an hour later, a passerby named John was rummaging through the trash discovered the puppies still alive, according to officials.

In total, there were 7 puppies inside the bag. All were 3 days old and were believed to be terrier mixes.

Officials said had it not been for the Good Samaritan’s actions, the puppies may not have survived much longer since temperatures in Coachella on Thursday were into the mid-90’s.

“The Good Samaritan played a major role in saving these puppies’ lives,” Mayer said. “His actions were humane and heroic.”

The puppies are now being cared for by a rescue shelter in Orange County, FOX11 reported.

The Riverside Animal Services Department is now hoping that someone will recognize the woman and turn her in. Mayer, who called the woman’s actions “despicable,” said he’s been in contact with investigators from the Riverside County Sheriff Office and the District Attorney’s office, who said she could face animal cruelty charges.

Ex-boyfriend of victim arrested in ax attack that left one woman dead and another fighting for her life

Police have arrested the ex-boyfriend of one of the victims of a brutal ax attack on Saturday that left one woman dead and another fighting for her life.

Jerry Brown, 34, has been charged with murder and attempted murder after allegedly chopping his girlfriend, Angela Valle, and her pregnant friend Savannah Rivera, with an ax at an apartment building in Brooklyn, New York.

Police found Rivera, who also has a three-year-old son, partially decapitated with her fingers severed at the grisly scene early Saturday morning. Valle, 21, called an Uber to take her to the hospital after the attack left her with gashes to her head, chest, arms, stomach, and throat, the New York Post reports. The Uber driver then called 911, and Valle, 21, informed medics before losing consciousness that her boyfriend was the attacker and that her four-year-old daughter Aliana was in the room next to the scene of the crime.

The girl was found asleep and unharmed. She is now with family as they wait with Valle at the Elmhurst Hospital Center and hope that she pulls through from the vicious attack.

TEEN, 3 FRIENDS CHARGED IN BEATING, STABBING DEATH OF GRANDFATHER, 71, FOR $30G KEPT IN SAFE, POLICE SAY

Brown is said to suffer from mental health issues and told Pix 11 before being arrested that he is schizophrenic, bipolar, and paranoid. He said he was trying to get medication from a hospital, and that he did not remember the attack. When he learned that his girlfriend was fighting for her life, he began to cry while speaking to reporters over the phone.

Brown allegedly purchased the ax at a Florama Hardware store about two weeks ago, employees said. They added that he asked 39-year-old worker Udi Amrussi if he could sharpen the ax for him, but the man refused.

Police found the ax covered in blood and tossed in a trash compactor at the Bushwick Houses, where the attack took place.

PENNSYLVANIA MAN, 76, CHARGED WITH KILLING WIFE WHO VANISHED IN 1981

Valle has previously gushed about Brown on Facebook, where the alleged attacker goes by the name “Grim Creepa.” Six weeks ago, she posted a photo of Brown and referred to him as “Mr. 187,” believed to be street slang identifying Brown as a murderer.

“I love you Daddy,” she wrote in the caption.

The unsolved 2017 murders of two teenage girls in Indiana that drew nationwide attention is set to move in a “new direction,” according to officials.

Indiana State Police said in a statement that an update will be held Monday on the murders of Libby German, 14, and Abby Williams, 13, who were killed in February 2017 while biking on trails near Delphi, located about 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

Details on what the news conference will entail were not included, other than a “new direction” in the investigation will be announced by Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter on behalf of the Multi-Agency Taskforce, according to state police.

“I am very hopeful that this is the break we have been waiting for,” said Libby’s mother, Carrie Timmons, told FOX59.

POLICE WON’T SAY IF 1988 INDIANA COLD CASE SUSPECT LINKED TO 2017 DELPHI MURDERS OF TWO TEENAGE GIRLS

The teens were reported missing on Feb. 13, 2017, after were dropped off at the Delphi Historic Trails in the early afternoon and were not heard from in hours. Their bodies were discovered the next day by a volunteer, about a half-mile off the trail.

Despite autopsies being conducted, no cause of death has ever been revealed for either of the girls.

Police have tens of thousands of tips in the investigation into Williams and German’s deaths but have not pinned down a suspect.  A source told FOX59 that no arrests have been made, but that authorities are expected to reveal “significant news” on the case on Monday.

In the course of the investigation, authorities released a pixelated image of a man walking on the bridge around the time of the girl’s disappearance.

Authorities also released an audio clip from one of the phones. Police said it might be the suspect’s voice. An unidentified man can be heard saying, “Down the hill.”

ACCUSED CHILD MOLESTER INVESTIGATED IN 2017 MURDERS OF INDIANA TEENS: REPORT

A composite sketch of the suspected killer was also released several months after the murders. He is described as a man having reddish-brown hair and undetermined eye color. He is thought to stand between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-10 and weigh between 180-220 pounds.

The Valencia County Sheriff’s Office says three suspects are in custody in the shooting deaths of three men at a home near Los Lunas early Saturday.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Joseph Rowland says 18-year-old Brandon Dowdy, 19-year-old Robert Wilson and a male 17-year-old were arrested on three counts of murder. The Associated Press does not generally identify defendants who are juveniles.

Court records don’t list defense attorneys who could comment on the allegations.

The victims were identified as 40-year-old Darren Bernal and 28-year-old Nathan Morrison from Belen and 29-year-old Joseph Santiago, from Albuquerque.

The Sheriff’s Office said witnesses who heard gunshots said they saw a SUV leaving the scene and that officers arrested the three after finding the SUV nearby.

The Latest: Visitors pay respects at Columbine memorial

The Latest on events commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Columbine school shooting (all times local):

1:05 p.m.

A steady stream of people are visiting a memorial to the 13 people killed at Columbine High School 20 years ago ahead of a remembrance ceremony in suburban Denver.

Visitors left dozens of single flowers along with cards and seed packets for columbines, the Colorado state flower, on the inner circle of the memorial Saturday.

Sheriff’s deputies patrolled the area on foot and by bike on a warm day as little league games went on at nearby fields.

Saturday’s events in the suburban area surrounding Columbine end a three-day slate of somber ceremonies honoring the victims and lending support to survivors, the school and victims’ families.

This week brought a new burden as federal authorities led a manhunt for a Florida teen “infatuated” with the shooting. She was discovered dead in an apparent suicide Wednesday in the foothills west of Denver.

10:30 p.m.

A Colorado community is marking the 20th anniversary of the attack on Columbine High School that killed 13 people and injured 24 others with community service projects and a remembrance ceremony.

Saturday’s events end several days of memorial events in the suburban community surrounding Columbine, remembering those killed and lending support to their families, survivors of the attack and the school’s students and staff.

The days surrounding the anniversary remain emotionally fraught for survivors of the attack, including those without physical wounds.

This week brought a new burden as federal authorities led a manhunt for a Florida teen “infatuated” with the shooting. The young woman flew to Denver on Monday and purchased a shotgun.

She was discovered dead in an apparent suicide Wednesday in the foothills west of Denver.

An Oklahoma mother has been charged with child neglect, accused of starving her children and feeding them dog feces.

The Tulsa World reports that 34-year-old Mary Elizabeth Moore was charged in Delaware County court this month.

The children, aged 5 and 3, are severely malnourished and have been placed on a special diet with nasal feeding tubes. They are in state custody.

An affidavit says the older child told Department of Human Services workers that she ate dog feces. The arresting officer noted the child had parasitic pinworms.

The girl also told investigators that her mother’s boyfriend “throws bottles” at her younger sibling.

The affidavit says Moore denied starving her children and feeding them dog feces. Her court-appointed attorney, Lee Griffin, didn’t immediately return a phone call Saturday seeking comment.

AP Was There: Shock, then terror as Columbine attack unfolds

On April 20, 1999, two teenage boys dressed in black trench coats went on a killing rampage at Columbine High School in suburban Denver. They shot and killed 12 classmates and a teacher and wounded two dozen others before taking their own lives.

Twenty years later, The Associated Press is republishing this story about the attack, the product of reporting from more than a dozen AP journalists who conducted interviews in the hours after it happened. The article first appeared on April 22, 1999.

___

A moment of surprise, then hours of terror

By TED ANTHONY

AP National Writer

LITTLETON, Colo. — Her favorite lunchtime meal was ready — “my only meal,” jokes Sarah DeBoer. So, nachos in hand, she headed toward the commons area of the Columbine High School cafeteria.

It was a sunny Tuesday morning, maybe 60 degrees, only 17 school days before graduation, and a spring mentality was afoot — the kind that says summer is on the horizon.

Outside, two disaffected young men knew something their classmates didn’t. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris had endgame in mind.

Ms. DeBoer, who knew the pair in passing, had talked to them Friday. True, they liked to bluster about guns and vengeance and Adolf Hitler. But they seemed — for them, at least — fine.

Upstairs in the school library, four dozen students were studying their way through the lunch period.

Down the hall, Dave Sanders, a popular instructor and coach, was teaching a science class. Nearby, Stephanie Williams, 16, a junior, was in the choir room singing.

Then, at about 11:15 a.m., a sound from outside: pop-pop-pop-BANG.

In the cafeteria, they thought it was a lunchtime prank. Whatever it was, it was getting closer.

Sarah DeBoer, a 16-year-old sophomore, hit the floor with her lunch companions. As realization washed over her, she uttered one thing. Whether it was aloud or just to herself, she doesn’t quite remember.

“I think that I’m going to die.”

___

In moments of chaos and hours of confusion, memories can cloud. But, through myriad interviews and briefings, an intelligible if still imprecise portrait emerges of what unfolded behind a suburban school’s pale brown walls.

Just after lunch period begins, two young men in black trench coats open fire in the parking lot. Senior Wade Frank, 18, outside in the parking lot next to a picnic area, hears popping sounds and sees a girl lying against a curb, shot in the leg. As he watches, another youth is shot in the back and falls forward.

Then one gunman throws a bomb into the parking lot and heads inside.

“He was just casually walking. He wasn’t in any hurry,” says Frank.

Sophomore Denny Rowe, 15, is outside having lunch with friends. “These guys opened fire on everything that looked human,” says Rowe. Bullets are bouncing everywhere.

“One boy was running and suddenly his ankle just puffed up in blood,” says sophomore Don Arnold, 16. “A girl was running and her head popped open.”

As the gunmen walk into the school, two students lie dead outside. Still shooting, the two walk to the cafeteria, where food server Karen Nielsen hears someone yell, “Get down!”

Klebold, 17, and Harris, 18, are heavily armed — an assault rifle, sawed-off shotguns, handguns. In the cafeteria, one removes his trench coat to reveal home-made grenades. He tosses a pipe bomb.

Gunshots echo. Students fall. One gets up to run and others follow.

Word spreads: The “Trenchcoat Mafia” has gone nuts. Many of the 900 students in the building duck into closets and bathrooms, under tables and chairs. A couple call 911 with cellular phones. Dozens flee the building and hide in brush around the school.

Senior Nick Foss, 18, and a friend push two teachers, a cook and another woman into a bathroom. “I heard people praying for their husbands and their children,” says Foss. The attackers bang on doors, yelling: “We know you’re in there.”

Casey Brackley, 15, is in the gym when an administrator herds kids into the equipment room.

“I hit my knees and prayed,” Ms. Brackley says. They stay for 15 minutes before the administrator directs them outside.

Neil Gardner, the Jefferson County sheriff’s deputy assigned to the school full-time, hears shots and spots one of the gunmen in a first-floor hallway. He radios for backup and returns fire as bullets ricochet off lockers. Within minutes, seven officers arrive and begin pulling students, including a few shooting victims, from the building.

In the choir room, above the commons, Stephanie Williams and her classmates hear the sounds.

Someone comes to the door and, with a thumb-forefinger gesture, gives them a warning: gun.

Her teacher tells everyone to sit. But in moments, the school’s two-level auditorium next door seems a safer place, so some go; then, after about 10 minutes, they run into the main hall.

“The group I was in headed straight for the door. He was shooting at us,” Stephanie says. “All we knew was to run.”

As they flee, a door behind them explodes in gunfire.

Sarah DeBoer, separated from her friend who had run into the weight room, lies on the cafeteria floor until she hears a car explode outside. Then she runs into the auditorium and lies down between seats.

There she stays for some time. Fellow students — 15, maybe 20 — cry softly. Teachers warn them to be silent. In the distance, they hear sharp reports and dull explosions. Finally, a janitor enters and tells them: Go!

They run, and gunfire follows.

“I turned, and I saw Dylan was the one who turned and shot at me,” Sarah says. “He didn’t know it was me; we were just running out of the auditorium.”

The gunmen head upstairs toward the library.

___

“All jocks stand up! We’re going to kill every one of you,” one gunman yells in the library.

Student Aaron Cohn, a ballplayer, is spared because a girl leaps onto his back while he lies on the floor, covering the baseball slogan on his shirt.

“They were laughing after they shot,” Cohn says. “It was like they were having the time of their life.”

Some students are slain at their desks, one with pencil still in hand. The gunmen play “peek-a-boo” with others, finding them cowering under desks and opening fire. Isaiah Shoels, who is black and has tangled with the gunmen before, is one of those to fall.

Says one assailant: “Oh, my God. Look at this black kid’s brain. Awesome, man!”

Some kids play dead. By the time it is over, 12 aren’t playing.

Klebold and Harris leave behind shattered windows, bloody floors and a quiet unlike any the library has ever heard. Elsewhere upstairs, Sanders, the teacher, has been shot twice in the chest but manages to get students down a hallway away from danger. He stumbles into a science room, bleeding and coughing blood.

Outside, the first SWAT team is on the scene 20 minutes after the first 911 calls, joining the sheriff’s deputies. It finds several explosive devices around the school and treads cautiously.

“We had initial people there right away, but we couldn’t get in,” Jefferson County Sheriff John Stone says. “We were way outgunned.”

About 45 minutes after the shooting begins, at noon, ambulances take the first wounded students — the ones who managed to run outside — to hospitals. Bomb teams, firetrucks, more SWAT units and paramedics arrive.

Nick Foss and other students manage to crawl into a space between the ceiling and acoustic tiles. Foss falls through a tile, crashing onto the floor of the teacher’s lounge. He runs.

Kammi Vest, 18, hides in the choir-room closet with up to 60 other students. Others try to crawl through heating vents to safety.

In the science room, Dave Sanders is dying. Students cover the 47-year-old teacher with their shirts and a blanket and keep him talking. But his pulse slows, and he grows cold.

Shots are heard until almost 12:30. About that time, in the library, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris turn their guns on themselves, though no one will be sure of this for hours.

As 12:30 passes, after no shots echo for several minutes, SWAT teams begin sweeping the building room by room. It is, quite literally, a minefield: Dropped backpacks are everywhere, each a potential bomb. In the coming days, bombs will turn up in various shapes and sizes. They include two 35-pound propane bombs hidden in the school’s kitchen.

At about 2:30, SWAT teams begin freeing those in hiding. In small groups, hands behind their heads, they run from the school to a holding area. They are frisked, questioned, offered medical care and bused to Leawood Elementary School to be reunited with parents.

By now, the world is seeing it all on TV. Escaped students cling to each other. Tears flow freely for some; for others, it will take time. Even the tough guys, the ones with the backward baseball caps and the baggy camo pants, cry.

At 4:30, with the gunmen’s bodies found, authorities declare the school under control. In goes Dr. Chris Colwell, summoned for a medical synopsis. In the sun-dappled, silent library is the worst sight he has ever seen.

“You walk in there with that hope that there might be somebody who’s still alive and still salvageable,” Colwell says. “It didn’t take long to see that wasn’t the case.”

He pronounces them all dead — 10 students and two alienated schoolmates who let their anger consume them.

The bodies will stay there for an entire day, until the known bombs are cleared.

___

By the following afternoon, nearby Clement Park has become a place of mourning. Students and teachers and gawkers, they come to commiserate, to speak of faith and perseverance, to see the spectacle and talk to the press.

Among the pilgrims: Sarah DeBoer, wearing her Columbine football jersey, and Stephanie Williams, accompanied by a friend to comfort her. They stand together, yards from the scene of their lives’ greatest terror, and they try to process the scenes running through their mind.

“Yesterday I was so scared,” Ms. DeBoer says, her voice falling.

“They ruined the school, but I think we should definitely go back,” she says. “If you don’t go back, they’ll win.”

Teens who were with boy shot by officer are added to lawsuit

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Teens who were with boy shot by officer are added to lawsuit fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc COLUMBUS, Ohio Associated Press article 4414a9e0-4806-5a34-9c6a-34ce970fdbef

Four teenagers who were with a black Ohio boy before he was fatally shot by a white police officer are now third-party defendants in a lawsuit over his death, even though his family doesn’t believe the teens should be held financially responsible.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the city of Columbus wanted the teens added to the case over the September 2016 death of 13-year-old Tyre (TY’-ree) King. That means they could be on the hook if Columbus or the officer is found liable for damages.

The city contends Tyre’s death was a consequence of the teens’ misbehavior.

Police say Tyre was with another teen who robbed someone, and Tyre was shot by a responding officer who thought he had a firearm. It turned out to be an inoperable BB gun.

However, Tinder and Bumble will not be helping him with his quest.

Zimmerman, 35, allegedly went under the name “Carter” on Tinder, according to screen grabs of his dating profile that were obtained by Creative Loafing Tampa Bay. “Carter” described himself as self-employed and as a Liberty University graduate who was “looking for carefree fun.” His profile claimed he liked to be outdoors and enjoyed fishing.

“I love adventure not into huge crowds,” his profile stated, according to the screenshots. “I’m also down for a quiet night with Longhorn take out.”

Tinder said in a statement that they removed the profile from its plaform.

“At Tinder, we take our users’ safety very seriously and our team has removed this profile from our platform,” Tinder said in a statement.

“We utilize a network of industry-leading automated and manual moderation and review tools, systems and processes – and spend millions of dollars annually to prevent, monitor and remove bad actors who have violated our Community terms and guidelines,” the statement continued.

This is not the first time Zimmerman has been kicked off a dating app. In December, Bumble “blocked and banned” him twice, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

“George Zimmerman was blocked and banned in December 2018 when we first discovered his profile and we have blocked and banned him again after we were informed by our users that he had created a new unverified profile,” a Bumble spokesperson said.

“Let’s get coffee and cake pops I’m looking for a mature and fun woman that’s ready to be loved and respected the way she deserves and is able to reciprocate,” Zimmerman wrote on his Bumble profile.

Zimmerman, a onetime neighborhood watch volunteer, fatally shot Martin, the 17-year-old unarmed black teenager who was staying at the gated townhouse community in Sanford where Zimmerman lived in 2012. He was acquitted of criminal charges in 2013.

Tinder did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

20 years after school attack, Columbine remembers 13 lost

A Colorado community is marking the 20th anniversary of the attack on Columbine High School that killed 13 people and injured 24 others with community service projects and a remembrance ceremony.

Saturday’s events end several days of memorial events in the suburban community surrounding Columbine, remembering those killed and lending support to their families, survivors of the attack and the school’s students and staff.

The days surrounding the anniversary remain emotionally fraught for survivors of the attack, including those without physical wounds.

This week brought a new burden as federal authorities led a manhunt for a Florida teen “infatuated” with the shooting. The young woman flew to Denver on Monday and purchased a shotgun.

She was discovered dead in an apparent suicide Wednesday in the foothills west of Denver.
