Two California police officers were injured on Saturday after seemingly aiming and firing at a suspect but instead hitting themselves, officials said.

The officers with the Elk Grove Police Department responded to a call regarding a suspicious person after 11 p.m. south of Sacramento. It was reported that he was trying to break into a trailer and may have had a firearm, according to a news release from the department.

One of the police officers arrived and asked that a male and female standing near the trailer sit down, to which they both complied. When the second officer arrived, “the male stood up and ran.”

The first officer ran after the suspect, while the second officer chased after him in his vehicle, police said. When the two confronted the suspect, they “were on each side of the [him], facing each other.”

When the suspect “moved toward the second officer with his hands near his midsection area,” both officers “using their duty weapons, fired at the suspect hitting him,” the news release stated.

But, during the encounter, the officers apparently were hit by each other’s gunfire, Public Information Officer Jason Jimenez told Fox News. One of the officers was hit in the lower leg and another suffered a deep grazing wound on his lower leg.

Jimenez said that at this point in the department’s investigation, officials did not believe the suspect fired his weapon, which police said was loaded.

The officers and the suspect were taken to the hospital for treatment.

The suspect was identified as a 41-year-old man from Sacramento. Investigators said that the person who reported him to police was an acquaintance and that the suspect often used the trailer, despite the caller’s claim he apparently was trying to break into it.

Upon release from the hospital, the suspect will be booked on several charges, including possessing a firearm by a felon, possessing a loaded firearm and obstructing arrest, police said.

‘Game of Thrones’ Night King taken into custody…by Norwegian police

The Night King’s reign of terror is reportedly over — and that’s not a Season 8 spoiler.

The “Game of Thrones” character was caught, cuffed and taken into custody last week by the Trondheim Police Department, who wanted to tap into the hype of the eighth and final season of the hit HBO show.

“The police have received many complains about a man from the northern region involved in criminal activity,” the department said in a satirical Facebook post on April 15 – the day after the show’s season premiere.

The Night King’s transgressions were a nod to the character’s javelin takedown of a dragon in Season 7.

“Our night watch has now apprehended the man to deter any further criminal activity on his behalf,” the police said.

Trondheim police told SYFY Wire why the satirical post was also important.

“These kinds of posts generate a lot of attention and new followers for us,” the department said in a statement to the website. “That’s useful when we later ask for help i.e. solving crimes or [searching] for missing persons.”

The department said the person behind the Night King mask was one of the younger officers, who’d been “handpicked for the job.”

“The response has been overwhelming and by far our most liked, commented and shared post,” the police added. “We are great fans. Valar Morghulis.”

Florida deputy on restricted duty after seen forcefully restraining pepper-sprayed HS student, hitting him in head

Westlake Legal Group florida-deputy-on-restricted-duty-after-seen-forcefully-restraining-pepper-sprayed-hs-student-hitting-him-in-head Florida deputy on restricted duty after seen forcefully restraining pepper-sprayed HS student, hitting him in head fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc article Anna Hopkins 24bd46a6-7178-5fc9-965e-135cb1a4612c

A Florida sheriff’s deputy was placed on restricted duty after cellphone video showed him forcefully restraining a pepper-sprayed high school student, at one point hitting him in the head while he was on the ground.

Deputy Christopher Krickovich was ordered to surrender his gun and badge until an investigation into Thursday’s fight is completed by the Department of Internal Affairs, Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony said.

WARNING: VIDEO BELOW CONTAINS PROFANITY

“I wanted to assure you that this incident is being conducted under a thorough investigation,” Tony said in a video statement. “We will look at this as a fact-finding measure to make sure we hold folks accountable,”

Broward County Mayor Mark Bogen called for Krickovich to be fired and another deputy disciplined, writing on Twitter that their conduct was “outrageous & unacceptable.”

However, Jeff Bell, the president of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association, criticized Tony’s decision, saying Krickovich and his colleagues were implementing the aggressive police tactics the new sheriff has pushed. After the shooting which killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year, deputies were disciplined for not charging into the school. Former Sheriff Scott Israel was replaced by Tony earlier this year.

The video posted on social media showed Krickovich and Sgt. Greg Lacerra amid a crowd of mostly African American students from J.P. Taravella High School after a fight outside a suburban Fort Lauderdale McDonald’s. Krickovich wrote in his report that because of a large fight Wednesday at the shopping center where the restaurant is located, the two were stationed there Thursday in case of a new eruption. Bell said the Tamarac plaza has been a longtime afterschool trouble spot, with students threatening and harassing the mostly elderly clientele.

The deputies “did exactly what they were trained to do,” Bell said. He argued that Krickovich and the others were surrounded by 200 students and feared for their safety. He also said Tony should release the deputies’ body camera video, which he said would show why they reacted as they did.

MAN CHARGED WITH MURDER FOR ALLEGEDLY KILLING DAUGHTER, NIECE HE MAY HAVE FATHERED CHILD WITH: REPORT

Krickovich said Thursday’s fight ended before deputies could get there. He said as the crowd dispersed, Lacerra noticed a teen who had been told to stay out of the plaza after Wednesday’s fight. Krickovich said he arrested the teen for trespassing and put him on the ground, causing the teen to drop his cellphone. Then, he said, another teen in a red tank top bent down to pick up the phone.

Video from the incident then showed the teen in the red tank top standing up. He turned sideways and appeared to say something to Lacerra, who pepper-sprayed him and threw him to the ground. Krickovich jumped on the teen, forcing his head to the ground and punching him. A third deputy helped Krickovich pin the teen’s arms behind his back to be handcuffed as the video ended.

Krickovich said he pushed down on the teen because he was trying to get up and he feared the teen would try to fight him or run off.

“The three of us were outnumbered by the large group of students who were yelling, threatening us and surrounding us,” Krickovich wrote in a statement. “I had to act quickly, fearing I would get struck or having a student potentially grab weapons off my belt.”

The teen, whose name was not released, was charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and trespassing.

Speed trap by Florida police foiled by handmade sign to alert drivers

Authorities in Florida were getting ready to crack down on speeding drivers last week when they discovered they couldn’t catch any because someone tipped off drivers.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post that officers were initially set up to conduct a speed enforcement operation in the Golden State Estates neighborhood after requests from residents.

“After a significant amount of time had passed they were puzzled,” police said Wednesday. “Traffic was steady, so why had they identified just one driver who was traveling over the speed limit?”

When police officers left the area, the mystery was solved.

Someone had made a sign on a piece of plywood that warned of “police ahead” and leaned it up against a speed limit sign pole.

Dispute over pro-police ‘Blue Lives Matter’ flag results in $100G settlement for county employee who sued

Westlake Legal Group dispute-over-pro-police-blue-lives-matter-flag-results-in-100g-settlement-for-county-employee-who-sued Dispute over pro-police ‘Blue Lives Matter’ flag results in $100G settlement for county employee who sued fox-news/us/us-regions/west/oregon fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc Dom Calicchio article 18479d4f-6837-54a6-83bf-ff6fd40fd06e

A county in Oregon has agreed to pay a former employee a $100,000 settlement after she sued the county for racial discrimination because a co-worker had posted a “Blue Lives Matter” flag in an office in support of local police.

The former employee, Karimah Guion-Pledgure, had worked as a corrections technician for the Multnomah County Department of Community Justice since 2011 but agreed to drop her lawsuit and resign as part of the settlement, the Portland Mercury reported, although she will be permitted to apply for another county job.

TODD STARNES: UC DAVIS STUDENTS PROTEST PHOTO OF SLAIN POLICE OFFICER HOLDING BLUE LIVES MATTER FLAG

In her lawsuit, Guion-Pledgure alleged that other county employees had retaliated against her after she complained that the pro-police flag was offensive, the report said.

The plaintiff, a black woman, contended that the phrase “Blue Lives Matter” had co-opted the phrase “Black Lives Matter,” and thus denigrated and diluted the original term.

According to the Mercury, the woman who sued originally protested the flag by displaying photos of people of color who had been killed by police officers. Department managers then asked her to remove the photos but she refused because the pro-police flag was allowed to stay in place.

A county spokeswoman, Jessica Morkert-Shibley, said county officials were working on policy revisions intended to avoid such disputes in the future, the Oregonian reported.

The plaintiff had originally sought $420,000 in her lawsuit, the newspaper reported.

Ex-Black Panther on death row for 1981 cop killing to get new chance at appeal

A former Black Panther member who was convicted in the 1981 killing of a Philadelphia police officer will get a chance at a new appeals hearing after a prosecutor dropped his opposition to it.

Mumia Abu-Jamal, 64, was sentenced to death for killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner, who had pulled his brother over during an overnight traffic stop. He was tried in absentia after attempts to serve as his own lawyer.

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

Abu-Jamal was given a new chance in December to argue his initial appeal by Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Leon Tucker after the U.S. Supreme Court determined a former state justice improperly heard and appeal in a murder case he had seen as district attorney.

FARRAKHAN CLAIMS TO BE JESUS IN ‘SAVIOURS’ DAY’ ADDRESS: ‘I AM THE MESSIAH

District Attorney Larry Krasner dropped his argument against Abu-Jamal, giving him a fresh chance at a new appeal despite arguing it could affect a large number of other convictions. Krasner agreed that then-District Attorney Ronald Castille – who presided over the Abu-Jamal case – shouldn’t have worn “two hats.”

A 1990 note Castille sent to then Gov. Robert Casey said “police killers” should get death warrants to “send a clear and dramatic message to all police killers that the death penalty actually means something.

Maureen Faulkner, David’s widow, said Krasner broke a promise to tell her about his decision before announcing it.

“I was just crying my eyes out, once again,” she said. “What about the survivors? What about victims in Philadelphia, and how they’re notified?”

Kranser’s office said he spoke to her Tuesday before making his final decision.

California ‘house of horrors’ parents face life in prison; 911 call from daughter released: ‘Sometimes we live in filth’

The California “house of horrors” parents who abused and tortured some of their 13 children face being sentenced to 25 years to life in prison Friday, a day after the 911 call from one of their daughters which helped lead to their downfall was released.

David and Louise Turpin pleaded guilty in Riverside County Superior Court in February to torture and other abuse and neglect so severe it stunted their children’s growth, led to muscle wasting and left two girls unable to bear children.

Their 17-year-old daughter was able to escape the filthy home in a middle-class section of Perris, about 60 miles southeast of Los Angeles. She jumped out of the window and used a cell phone to alert authorities. ABC News obtained the 911 call the girl made to authorities, pleading for help.

“I’ve never been out,” the teen told the dispatcher. “I don’t go out much.”

CALIFORNIA ‘HOUSE OF HORRORS’ PARENTS PLEAD GUILTY

“My parents are abusive,” she said in the call. “My two little sisters right now are chained up right now … they’re chained up to their bed.”

“Sometimes we live in filth and sometimes I wake up and I can’t breathe because how dirty the house is,” she told the dispatcher.

When asked by the dispatcher when the last time she took a bath, she replied, “I don’t know. Almost a year ago.”

Authorities arrived at the home in January 2018 and were shocked by what they saw. A 22-year-old son was chained to a bed and two girls had just been set free from their shackles. The house was covered in filth and the stench of human waste was overwhelming, police said.

Authorities said the children barely left the home except for the occasional family vacation, slept most of the day and were mostly kept in their rooms.

The children said they were beaten, caged and shackled to beds if they didn’t obey their parents. The children ranged in age from 2 to 29.

David Turpin, 57, had been an engineer for Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. Louise Turpin, 50, was listed as a housewife in a 2011 bankruptcy filing.

It was not immediately clear if any of the children will attend the sentencing, but they will be offered a chance to speak or can offer written statements to be read in court.

Australian man who was wrongfully convicted of murder dies in Los Angeles hit-and-run accident

An Australian man who served 12 years in jail for a murder he did not commit died in a hit-and-run accident in Los Angeles on Thursday at the age of 56, The West Australian reported.

Mallard was walking across the street around 1:30 a.m. when a driver struck him and failed to stop, LAPD told The West Australian. A witness attempted to administer CPR, but Mallard died at the scene. The British-born Australian was on vacation in the U.S. from his home in the United Kingdom when he passed.

FLORIDA DRIVER CRITICALLY INJURED IN SHOCKING HIT-AND-RUN ROLLOVER CRASH

Mallard was sentenced to life in prison in 1995 for murdering Pamela Lawrence in her Mosman Park jewelry store on May 23, 1994, WA Today reported. The High Court of Australia exonerated Mallard in 2006 after discovering prosecutors withheld information from the defense team.

“It’s just fortunate that he got to spend 13 years of freedom after so much time wrongfully imprisoned,” Attorney-General John Quigley who fought for Mallard’s freedom told The Western Australian. The Australian state government paid Mallard a $2 million settlement in 2009 for his wrongful conviction.

Police conducted two separate investigations into the cold case in 2006 and found new evidence to charge a different man, Simon Rochford, in the murder. Rochford, who had been found guilty of murdering his girlfriend Brigitta Dickens, committed suicide in Albany Prison before prosecutors could try the case. Mallard was finally eliminated as a suspect.

Western Australian police notified Mallard’s family of his death and offered condolences during this difficult time, a spokesperson for the department said.

A group of firefighters in Missouri were recently caught on tape lending a helping hand to an individual whose electric wheelchair gave out.

A video of the kind gesture, which appeared to be shot from inside a vehicle following behind, was shared on Facebook Tuesday by the Raytown Fire Protection District and showed the responders pushing the wheelchair down the road.

“What happens when a Fire Truck comes upon a citizen who’s electric wheelchair has stopped working. You get out and help them home,” the post said.

The man, who is a veteran, received the assistance after his chair got caught in the ground while he was visiting a pond in the area, Deputy Chief Mike Hunley told The Kansas City Star. Attempts by people on the scene to help him were reportedly unsuccessful so the fire department was called.

“Our guys responded out there and basically lifted a wheelchair with him in it up out of the rut he was stuck in,” Hunley said. “He apparently had been trying to get himself out with the wheelchair and had expended the battery so it was pretty drained.”

The firefighters were reportedly able to get the man home so he could power up his wheelchair.

Ten Connecticut high school students were arrested after participating in a food fight so wild it left a teacher injured and a school resource officer hospitalized, officials said.

The “out of control” ordeal took place at Westhill High School in Stamford on Friday after students planned the fight and circulated it on social media, the Stamford Police Department said in a news release.

The fight included “hundreds of students running out of the school, many throwing eggs, water and soda cans,” in addition to “a few skirmishes.”

The situation was so chaotic that investigators said a school resource officer who was hit in the head with a full can of soda had to be transported to the ER and treated for a laceration and a concussion. A teacher at the high school was injured after “she was trampled by a mass of students.”

“We realize that the citizens, parents, teachers and vast majority of the students do not condone this behavior,” the police department wrote. “This is not the learning environment we expect and demand for our children in this City.”

Following a “countless” number of hours investigating and reviewing surveillance footage, police arrested 10 juveniles in connection to the food fight. They’re scheduled to appear in juvenile court. The department said the charges “range from Riot in the 1st degree, Breach of Peace to Reckless Endangerment and Assault on a Police Officer.”

Investigators urged parents to monitor their children’s social media accounts to prevent similar incidents.
