Two New Jersey teens are facing first-degree murder charges in connection with the beating death of a homeless man, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Camden police found the body of 63-year-old Bobby J. Hill Jr. in an alleyway after midnight on June 25, investigators said.

The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office said the medical examiner has determined that Hill had died of blunt force trauma.

Investigators said surveillance footage showed two teens – a 15-year-old male and a 17-year-old female – entering an alleyway near the 1100 block of Kaighn Ave. with Hill.

The teens were reportedly filmed leaving the area several minutes later without Hill.

Seattle father mourning loss of son killed in ‘CHOP’ zone gets calls of support from Trump, Seattle mayor

On the day he buried his 19-year-old son, who was gunned down in Seattle’s lawless ‘CHOP’ zone, Horace Lorenzo Anderson Sr. got a phone call from President Trump, who had been moved by his heart-wrenching appearance the night before on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity.”

Anderson’s son, Horace Lorenzo Anderson Jr., was killed in the early hours of June 20, when shots rang out near the border of the six-block zone the city had given up for three chaotic weeks. In the emotional interview with Sean Hannity, a tearful Anderson said he hadn’t been able to get answers from the city about his son’s death, and disclosed that he had not even been contacted by Mayor Jenny Durkan.

But, the mayor, a Democrat, did reach out to Anderson later Wednesday, and a call from Trump followed later.

“We just talked to the president of the United States,” Anderson’s friend and family spokesman Andre Taylor, who took part in Wednesday’s interview, told Fox News. “How are you going to top that?”

MEDIA NARRATIVE OF PEACEFUL AREA TURNED UPSIDE DOWN

Taylor said Trump told Anderson he saw his interview with Hannity Wednesday night and was moved by the grieving father’s grace in the face of tragedy. In what Taylor said was a seven-minute call, Trump offered his condolences and support.

“He said he watched ‘Hannity’ last night, and told Horace, ‘Your son is looking down on you and watching over you,’” Taylor recounted. “He was incredibly gracious, and it gave Horace some extra help as he buried his son.”

In the interview, Anderson described his son as good-hearted, but easily influenced. He said he took some solace in knowing that he often told the boy he took full custody of him at age 2 and that he loved him. But, when he described the pain of learning through the grapevine that his son was dead, he broke down, as Taylor comforted him.

SEATTLE POLICE RESPONSE TO FATAL CHOP SHOOTING SEEN ON BODYCAM FOOTAGE

“The only way I found out was just two of his friends, just two friends that just happened to be up there, and they came and told me,” he said. “They weren’t even from Seattle. Now, mind you, I haven’t heard —  the police department, they never came.”

Compounding the father’s grief were reports that first responders who came to the CHOP zone to transport the shooting victims to the hospital encountered an angry mob that denied them entry. The pair were taken to Harborview Medical Center by self-described “CHOP medics,” and Anderson’s son was pronounced dead on arrival.

“My son needed help, and I don’t feel like they helped my son,” Anderson said. “I feel like he doesn’t — without this, he would just be nobody. He’s just — it doesn’t matter, he’s just another guy. Just another child, just swept up under the rug, and that’s it and forgotten about.”

His son’s death has left him heartbroken, Anderson told a visibly moved Hannity.

“I wake up in the morning… I look for my son in the morning,” he said. “He’s not there no more. You know what I’m saying? It’s like I go in there, I’m kissing a picture. He’s not there.”

Thursday’s phone call from Trump helped Anderson get through a day that no parent should ever face. Knowing that so many people, including the commander-in-chief, shared in his grief provided him some measure of peace and strength, Taylor said.

“It blew Horace’s mind,” he added.

The infamous CHOP zone in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood was forcefully cleared out Wednesday after the city’s leadership finally acted following two deadly shootings and weeks of scrutiny that a city would cede several blocks to protesters and not allow first responders to enter.

LATEST CHOP SHOOTING KILLS TEEN, CRITICALLY WOUNDS 14-YEAR-OLD

Elected leaders contended the protest was largely peaceful until reports of gun violence and videos of demonstrators threatening journalists and other visitors to the area surfaced online.

Since the zone was established, there have been four shootings, two of which were deadly — 19-year-old Horace Lorenzo Anderson Jr. and a 16-year-old who died in a separate incident.

Many businesses and people living within the occupied area also complained of violence and threats from demonstrators. Several businesses, including an auto repair shop, a tattoo parlor and a property-management company, filed lawsuits against the city Wednesday. The complaint alleged that city officials were complicit in letting the self-described anarchists occupy public streets that made them feel unsafe.

As crews cleared out the area this week, Seattle police retook a police station that officers had abandoned following clashes between law enforcement and protesters.

Many Republicans, including Trump, have excoriated local leaders amid reports of chaos and lawlessness within CHOP. Earlier this month, Trump vowed to not have a repeat of Seattle in Washington, D.C., as protests raged near the White House.

In a June 18 tweet, he called CHOP “the latest example of Liberal (Democrat) cities caving to lawlessness.”

“We’re not talking about some little place, we’re talking about Seattle,” Trump said during a June 20 rally in Tulsa, Okla., while criticizing Democrats in Seattle and Washington state. He said he had an offer to Seattle officials that “any time you want, we’ll come in” and straighten out the issues in Seattle “in an hour or less.”

Colorado accused killer under probe – for renting out his swimming pool

Westlake Legal Group colorado-accused-killer-under-probe-for-renting-out-his-swimming-pool Colorado accused killer under probe – for renting out his swimming pool fox-news/us/us-regions/west/colorado fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox-news/politics/regulation fox news fnc/us fnc f8b57ac4-2ebe-5d82-a385-fb51bfcefa72 Dom Calicchio article

Robert Feldman isn’t due in court until September to stand trial for allegedly killing his wife in 2015.

Right now, the Denver man is facing another legal matter: Whether he’s been breaking local zoning rules by renting out his swimming pool.

Feldman, 57, has been pocketing as much as $45 an hour for letting people swim in his backyard, FOX 31 of Denver reported.

FLORIDA WOMAN HAD HITMAN KILL STEPFATHER TO COLLECT ON LIFE INSURANCE: POLICE

He was advertising his pool as a “Totally Private Oasis” on the Swimply site – until the site started receiving complaints from the family of the woman Feldman allegedly strangled to death.

Stacy Feldman had confronted her husband about an extramarital affair, FOX 31 reported. The suspect claimed his wife died after slipping and falling in the shower.

Feldman wasn’t charged in the case until 2018 because it took Denver detectives three years to find a medical expert who would testify that the wife was strangled instead, FOX 31 reported.

Meanwhile, some of Feldman’s neighbors said they find it “creepy” that he has been renting out his pool to people while he awaits his murder trial.

But one neighbor said it didn’t seem out of character.

“I’m not a bit surprised that he would go to any lengths to make money,” Roni Brown told FOX 31. “He’s already living off his wife’s life insurance, which upset me terribly when I found that out.”

Last year the state Supreme Court ruled that Feldman could pay for his defense using his wife’s life insurance money. The dead woman’s family had argued the $752,000 should go instead to the couple’s two children, who now live with an aunt, according to FOX 31.

One woman who’s been renting Feldman’s pool told the station she didn’t know about his upcoming trial. Was she concerned now that she knows?

“Not particularly, no,” the woman said.

Horace Lorenzo Anderson Sr., the father of a 19-year-old black man who was shot and killed last month inside Seattle’s Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) publically pleaded for answers on “Hannity” Wednesday night, saying police and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan had failed to reach out to him since his son’s death.

SEATTLE POLICE RESPONSE TO FATAL CHOP SHOOTING SEEN ON BODYCAM FOOTAGE

“They need to come talk to me and somebody needs to come tell me something, because I still don’t know nothin’,” an emotional Anderson told host Sean Hannity. “Somebody needs to come to my house and knock on my door and tell me something. I don’t know nothin’. All I know is my son got killed up there.

“They say, ‘He’s just a 19-year-old.'” No, that’s Horace Lorenzo Anderson [Jr.]. That’s my son, and I loved him.”

“Somebody needs to come to my house and knock on my door and tell me something.”

— Horace Lorenzo Anderson, “Hannity”

The younger Anderson was murdered early on the morning of June 20 when shots rang out near Cal Anderson Park on 10th Avenue and East Pine Street inside the CHOP.  A 33-year-old man was wounded in the shooting.

Anderson Sr. broke down in tears as he recalled the night he learned of his son’s death.

“The only way I found out was just two of his friends, just two friends that just happened to be up there and they came and told me,” he said.  “They weren’t even from Seattle. Now, mind you, I haven’t heard —  the police department, they never came …

“Someone should’ve came and knocked on my door and … should’ve been, like, coming to talk to me and let me know about my son. To this day, I really don’t know nothing. I’m still here sitting. I don’t know nothing.”

LATEST CHOP SHOOTING KILLS TEEN, CRITICALLY WOUNDS 14-YEAR-OLD

Anderson, who plans to bury his son on Thursday, told Hannity that he is “numb” and hasn’t been able to sleep as questions about his son’s final moments remain unanswered.

“I still don’t know what’s going on,” he said. “I’m hearing from YouTube. I don’t know nothing. All I know is my son is dead. I’m still trying to figure out answers so I can sleep. I don’t sleep. My kids don’t sleep. I can’t even stay at home. My kids, they feel like they are unsafe at home. I’ve been buying motel rooms and I don’t have that type of money. I wasn’t prepared for this.”

Anderson said that without his efforts to honor his son’s memory, “he would be nobody. It doesn’t matter. Just another guy, another child swept up under a rug and that’s it and forgotten about.”

At one point in the interview, Hannity became emotional as Anderson described the daily trauma of waking up to the realization that his son is no longer alive.

“I wake up in the morning … I look for my son in the morning. He’s not there no more. You know I’m saying? It’s like I go in there, I’m kissing a picture. He’s not there.”

“You’re taking away generations,” he went on. ” You’re taking away our youth. You are taking away, my son never had a chance to have another child. My grandbaby would never be … that’s a generation taken from me.”

Despite his grief, Anderson said he trusts that God will take care of his family and guide them through these trying times.

“Everything is in God’s hands now,” he said. “God’s going to take care of it, I feel like … God is going to take care of me and he is going to take care of my son.”

To the family of the perpetrator, Anderson said “I look in the camera and I wouldn’t wish this on you, nobody else’s kids.”

Vanessa Guillen’s body found, fellow Fort Hood soldier killed self, another suspect in custody: family lawyer

Westlake Legal Group Vanessa-Guillen Vanessa Guillen's body found, fellow Fort Hood soldier killed self, another suspect in custody: family lawyer fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/military/army fox-news/us/military fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox-news/us/crime fox-news/topic/missing-persons fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 820bc8dc-98c3-52e4-a63e-365371bad3b3

A lawyer representing the family of Vanessa Guillen, a 20-year-old soldier reported missing from a U.S. Army base in Texas in April, said Wednesday they’re demanding accountability after it appears her body has been found and a suspect killed himself.

The attorney, Natalie Kahwam, referred to a suspect — identified by officials as a fellow soldier who fled Fort Hood on foot Wednesday morning and reportedly shot and killed himself as local police and federal marshals closed in on him at a home in Killeen, Texas.

Another suspect — identified only as the estranged wife of a former Fort Hood soldier — was taken into custody and awaits charges in connection to Guillen’s disappearance.

TEXAS ARMY BASE MAKES PLEA FOR VANESSA GUILLEN’S RETURN AFTER SKELETAL REMAINS OF DIFFERENT MISSING SOLDIER FOUND

“We believe that her remains were found,” Kahwam said in a press conference in Washington, D.C. “We believe that the suspect had killed himself in the morning. And that, unfortunately, does not provide us much information about how this happened, why this happened. About why a beautiful young soldier is not with us today.”

Killeen Police said in a statement that its officers, U.S. Marshals in the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and investigators with the Fort Hood Criminal Investigation Division located the suspect in the 4700 block of East Rancier Avenue in Killeen around 1:29 a.m. Wednesday.

“As officers attempted to make contact with the suspect, the suspect displayed a weapon and discharged it towards himself.  The suspect succumbed from a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” the press release said.

‘EXTENSIVE SEARCH’ FOR MISSING SOLDIER, 20, LAST SEEN ON TEXAS ARMY BASE CONTINUES AFTER KEYS, WALLET FOUND

“The person who took his own life earlier today in Killeen after being sought by Killeen police and federal marshals was a soldier from Fort Hood and had fled the base earlier in the day,” U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command said in another statement Wednesday. “A civilian has been arrested in connection with Vanessa Guillen’s disappearance. The civilian suspect is the estranged wife of a former Fort Hood Soldier and is currently in custody in the Bell County Jail awaiting charges by civilian authorities.”

The suspects have not been named publicly by authorities. But Guillen’s sister, Mayra, said Wednesday that she recognized the man who reportedly shot and killed himself Wednesday morning from meeting him before in the past.

“I met him not knowing that he had something to do with it,” Mayra Guillen said, according to KTRK. “I felt something was telling me that he did something and I wasn’t wrong apparently. He still had the nerve that day to laugh in my face. And apparently now, he kills himself. Why? I don’t know. But whoever is responsible has to pay and we demand a Congressional investigation.”

Kahwam clarified that Guillen’s family is still waiting for official identification of the remains found Tuesday near the Leon River in Bell County, just 25 miles from Fort Hood, the U.S. Army post in Killeen.

Chris Grey, U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID) spokesman, said Tuesday that special agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command returned to the area near the Leon River for more investigative work in the search for Guillen, where “agents have discovered what has been described as partial human remains after analysis from a forensic anthropologist.”

“Army CID agents are currently on scene with the Texas Rangers, the FBI and Bell County Sheriff’s Department,” the statement said. “No confirmation as to the identity of the remains has been made at this point and we ask for the media and public’s understanding that the identification process can take time.  Due to the ongoing criminal investigation, no further information will be released at this time.”

Texas EquuSearch, a non-profit search-and-rescue organization assisting multiple law enforcement agencies, has said that the search for Guillen has concluded.

Pvt. First Class Vanessa Guillen, 20, a native of Houston, was last seen in the parking lot of her Regimental Engineer Squadron Headquarters, 3rd Cavalry Regiment at Fort Hood on April 22.

Her car keys, barracks room key, identification card and wallet were found in the armory room where she was working earlier in the day, according to investigators. Officials said she was last seen in the parking lot wearing a black T-shirt and “purple fitness-type pants.”

Guillen’s unit reported her missing to the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division on April 23 when a check of the barracks and unit area did not locate her.

Khawam has said the soldier told relatives, friends and colleagues before her disappearance that she was being sexually harassed by a sergeant at the base but did not formally report the matter for fear of retaliation.

An Arizona man who authorities said sold illegal tracer and armor-piercing bullets to the Las Vegas massacre gunman was sentenced to prison Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

Douglas Haig, 57, of Mesa, will spend 13 months in federal prison for manufacturing ammunition without a license,according to Nicholas A. Trutanich, U.S. attorney for the District of Nevada. Haig had pleaded guilty to the federal charge last November.

“This case arose out of the investigation into the October 1, 2017 mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas,” prosecutors said. “In the hotel room from which the shooter staged his attack, investigators located a box with a shipping label setting forth Haig’s name and address.”

Still, Haig was not accused of a direct role in the shooting that killed 58 people and injured more than 850 — described as the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. Senior U.S. District Judge James Mahan imposed the sentence but separated Haig from the actions conducted by the gunman, Stephen Paddock.

Paddock killed himself as responding law enforcement officers moved in on him, authorities have said. His precise motivation for the shooting remains a mystery.

“The person who did that, who committed that reprehensible act, we can only hope now that he’s being punished for eternity,” Mahan said, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “He’s escaped punishment on this earth.”

Defense attorney Marc Victor added that Haig had no indication of the plans by the gunman.

“Doug was absolutely devastated when he learned of the tragedy,” Victor said.

Haig illegally sold various types of ammunition between July 2016 and October 2017, court documents showed, according to Fox 5 Vegas. A fingerprint examination found his prints on two pieces of armor-piercing ammunition removed from a magazine in the shooter’s hotel room, prosecutors said.

Agents from the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) conducted a series of interviews with Haig, starting on Oct. 2, 2017, where he admitted to meeting the shooter and selling him ammunition. Haig reportedly was not authorized to sell the ammunition and didn’t have a federal firearms license, prosecutors said, according to the station.

Agents seized “hundreds of pounds of ammunition and ammunition components” on Oct. 24, 2017, after executing a search warrant at Haig’s residence. Ammunition or firearms-related equipment was found in nearly every room, including a workshop they said was converted into an ammunition manufacturing operation that Haig was in the process of automating, according to prosecutors.

He reportedly used the workshop to conduct a business named Specialized Military Ammunition where he sold the ammo on the internet and at gun shows around the country. Paddock also purchased the ammunition from Haig through the business, which he closed permanently following the FBI raid, the paper reported.

Victor had previously argued that as the only person to face a criminal charge following the shooting, Haig could not be fairly judged by a jury drawn from the trauma-scarred Las Vegas community. Mahan had ordered Haig, an aerospace engineer, to self-surrender to the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) by Oct. 2, 2020.

In September, Haig’s lawyers are expected to ask the judge to consider the possibility of the coronavirus pandemic leaving him susceptible to serious illness before he is scheduled to start serving his sentence, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Mahan said BOP officials can decide whether Haig may serve some of his prison time at home.

Seattle CHOP barriers being cleared by city crews, cops at scene

Seattle Department of Transportation crews on Tuesday began removing concrete barriers marking the entrance to the area protesters are calling the Capitol Hill Organized Protest, or CHOP.

A crew used heavy machinery to remove the concrete barriers at 10th and East Pine Street. Seattle Police officers were also at the scene to assist crews in case protesters intervened.

Protesters almost immediately began to construct a makeshift barricade to take the concrete barrier’s place, moving furniture, trash cans and plywood into the road to continue to block traffic into the area.

As of Tuesday morning, no plans had been set in place to remove the other concrete barriers in front of the abandoned East Precinct, according to Seattle Police Department Assistant Chief Adrian Diaz.

Monday marked the fourth shooting near the CHOP zone since the occupation began three weeks ago.

A 16-year-old boy was killed and a 14-year-old boy remained hospitalized in critical condition after a shooting on 12th Avenue between Pike and Pine around 3 a.m.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best appeared on camera later Monday to urge protesters to leave the CHOP zone, saying “Enough is enough here.”

“This is something that’s going to need to change,” Best said. “We’re asking that people remove themselves from this area for the safety of the people. If they care about people, they’re going to have to try to help us to make it safe.”

Best said the shooting resulted in the second death of an African-American victim “at a place where they claim to be working for Black Lives Matter.”

Horace Lorenzo Anderson, 19, was shot and killed on June 20 when a shooting rang out around 2:30 a.m. near Cal Anderson Park on 10th Avenue and East Pine Street inside the CHOP.  A second man was injured in the incident.

The fatality prompted Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, a Democrat, to announce last week that the city would begin efforts to dismantle the occupied zone, but the barriers and tent encampment in Cal Anderson Park remained largely in place throughout the day Monday, KING-TV reported.

A 17-year-old was also shot in the arm near Cal Anderson Park on June 21, and a man in his 30s was shot in the calf near the CHOP zone on June 23.

City efforts to dismantle the CHOP were thwarted Friday when protesters laid down in the street to block Seattle Department of Transportation crews and heavy machinery from removing barricades around the occupied zone. Crews left after two hours without removing the barricades.

The encampment in Cal Anderson Park has become more difficult to manage, drawing violence and a large homeless population since the onset of the occupation three weeks ago.

Organizers on Sunday said they’re seeking to move into the abandoned East Precinct, where most protest leadership have already taken up shelter, as part of an effort to secure their best bargaining chip in convincing city officials to act on police reform and other demands, the Seattle Times reported.

Negotiations between protesters and city officials over the weekend proved unfruitful, despite Durkan reiterating on Sunday that she outlined a plan earlier in the week to review the Seattle Police Department’s budget and allocate funds to invest in black communities.

“In recent weeks, I’ve had more than a dozen meetings with organizations, Black leaders, and protesters. Right now, I am at City Hall doing the work,” Durkan tweeted.

Dozens of people were arrested Monday after protesters in Louisville parked cars on a major bridge, blocking traffic between Kentucky and Indiana for nearly three hours to demand justice for the late Breonna Taylor.

News helicopter video showed protesters making their way onto Clark Memorial Bridge around 11 a.m. and blocking traffic. They hung a large sign with Taylor’s image that read: “They tried to bury me. They didn’t know I was a seed. Breonna Taylor. The revolution is now.”

One protester at the scene was seen carrying a rifle and scope, according to a WAVE local news reporter. Louisville Metro Police Department officers reached protesters on the bridge by 1 p.m. and told them to disperse. Authorities said 33 people were arrested when they refused to comply, and 19 cars were removed.

GUNFIRE AT DEADLY BREONNA TAYLOR PROTEST IN LOUISVILLE CAUGHT ON VIDEO; POLICE SAY GUNMAN WAS A PROTESTER

Those arrested were seen handcuffed, sitting on the sidewalk before being taken into custody and transported in a police van. Tow trucks removed stranded vehicles.

The protest followed an incident at a tent encampment in Jefferson Square Park, where gunfire erupted Saturday; a protester had opened fire, wreaking chaos among campers who also were armed. Tyler Charles Gerth, 27, a photographer from Louisville, died of a gunshot wound.

Steven Nelson Lopez, 23, identified from surveillance footage as the first to begin shooting, pleaded not guilty to murder and nine counts of wanton endangerment during an arraignment hearing Tuesday, the Courier-Journal reported. Bail for Lopez, who also was wounded in the incident, was set at $500,000.

Officers on Monday stood in a line at the foot of the Clark Memorial Bridge, which stretches over the Ohio River, to redirect traffic and block additional protesters from interfering. A video captured by a local WHAS reporter showed an exchange between a black police officer and black protesters at the foot of the bridge.

“I got black daughters. So don’t threaten me,” the officer told protesters, making a connection between himself and the police killing of Breonna Taylor. “I’m gonna be pissed off just like everybody else.”

“Ya’ll have a right to be. But when you do stupid stuff –­ that ya’ll ain’t doing –­ but other people are doing, we got to show up,” the officer continued, gesturing to fellow officers at the scene.

Another video taken at the scene showed a black officer bowing his head to pray with a black protester. A white officer at his side also bows his head in prayer.

“We just ask God that you help us to find common ground out here today on all levels. We just ask for peace for this city. We just ask for peace for the family of Breonna Taylor,” the black officer said.

Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, was killed in her Louisville apartment on March 13 by plainclothes detectives who were serving a no-knock warrant in a drug investigation. No drugs were found, and one of the officers was recently fired. Two other officers remain on administrative reassignment.

Calls for action against the officers have gotten louder during a national reckoning over racism and police brutality following George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis on May 25.

Kentucky government officials said Monday they will begin an investigation into the city of Louisville’s handling of the fatal police shooting of Taylor.

“The citizens of this community, including members of this Metro Council, have been very upset with the perceived lack of transparency by the city,” said Brent Ackerson, who chairs the Louisville Metro Council’s government oversight committee. “It’s our intention, as a committee, to formally begin an investigation, to bring people in and get legitimate answers and legitimate documentation.”

Jean Porter, a spokeswoman for Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, said he welcomed the review. She said Fischer already has authorized a thorough review of the Louisville Metro Police Department and a separate investigation of actions related to the Taylor case.
