A Missouri man, shot by police during a domestic violence dispute, has been charged with domestic abuse and firearms possession. Authorities say he’d shot at his child’s mother during a confrontation.

Police received complaints on Wednesday that Erron Williams, 31, got into an argument with the woman with whom he shares a child at their home in Maryland Heights, a St. Louis suburb. Williams, said to have been armed, reportedly threatened the woman with the child present, saying, “We are going to shoot it out.”

The dispute continued outside and Williams again threatened the woman, according to authorities, saying, “You think I won’t shoot you while we are outside?”

After the woman tried to drive away with their daughter, Williams, a convicted felon, fired at the vehicle, but no one was injured and he fled the scene, according to the probable cause statement from the St. Louis County Police Department.

On Thursday, further investigation into the dispute led investigators to Williams’ job. When he was apprehended by police and officers tried to arrest him, “he was seen grabbing at his waistband trying to produce a weapon which he ultimately does produce,” St. Louis County Police Sgt. Ben Granda said.

“When he gathers that weapon, turns it towards officers, an officer discharged his weapon, striking that suspect.”

Williams, still in the hospital as of Friday, has been charged with one count of first-degree domestic assault, armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon, and unlawful possession of a firearm.

He is being held on a $200,000 cash-only bond.

Tensions high as Memphis community tries to return to normal after police shooting

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A sense of calm has been restored in this city after a night of violent clashes between police and protesters following the police-involved shooting of a black man.

But the mood remained tense.

Thursday night, a day after the shooting death of Brandon Webber, 20, some residents of the Memphis community he lived in shouted their frustrations through a bullhorn on the same street where a violent clash between protestors and police erupted.

Community activist, Casio Montez, who knew Webber personally, said he was outraged by the shooting death and sympathized with the deceased man’s family.

“Nobody knows what them folks [are] feeling right now,” Montez said of Webber’s family. “You don’t understand that pain.”

Montez said Webber was a “good young man” who had graduated from Central High School in Memphis and had completed a couple of years of college. He said Webber was also a father of three who simply wanted provide for his family.

“Somebody dropped the ball,” he said angrily. “A life was lost – a child – 20 years old. He was just beginning to see life.”

(Jim Weber/Daily Memphian via AP)

But police portrayed Webber differently, saying he was a violent criminal who was the main suspect in a savage shooting.

In a press release, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said the United States Marshals – Gulf Coast Regional Task Force had tried to take Webber into custody on several warrants out of DeSoto County, Miss. stemming from a shooting and car theft that occurred last week.

DeSoto County District Attorney John Champion said during a press conference that Webber allegedly shot someone five times and stole his red Infinity after the two met to work out a potential sale of the vehicle on June 3.

“It was every intent of Mr. Webber to kill our victim,” said Chief Scott Worsham, Hernando Police Department. “He’s still alive by the grace of God.”

The victim, who is hospitalized, was able to identify Webber for authorities who tracked him and the car down in Memphis on Wednesday, police said. U.S. Marshals encountered Webber as he was getting into a vehicle. While attempting to stop him, officials allege Webber rammed his vehicle into the officers’ vehicles multiple times before exiting with a weapon.

The officers claim that’s when they fired their guns, striking and killing Webber.

“There’s no doubt we were dealing with a violent individual,” Champion said.

Community members aren’t buying it.

Frank Gottie said the relationship between the community and police was irreparable until officers are held accountable for their actions.

“Hold these officers accountable for what they’re doing,” said Gottie. “When we kill each other, they hold us accountable. We need to hold them accountable.”

Protests broke out in the city’s Frayser neighborhood after Webber was shot. Protestors threw bricks and rocks at a line of police officers and their patrol vehicles. Officers tried to disperse the crowd with tear gas. Police said three arrests were made.

At least 36 officers and deputies were injured during the Wednesday night clash, police said Thursday. According to the Memphis Police Department’s Twitter account, 15 department cars were damaged.

As the community slowly returns to normal, at least one resident said he is hoping that police and community members can make amends.

‘Live PD’ creator says the show helps hold police accountable but that ‘negativity is what gets attention’

A&E’s big bet on “Live PD” in 2016 paid off and the show became one of the most popular on the network. However, its creator is proudest of the conversation the series has sparked about law enforcement in America.

For those unfamiliar, “Live PD” is hosted by Dan Abrams, Tom Morris Jr. and Sgt. Sean “Sticks” Larkin as camera crews follow various police and sheriff’s departments around the United States to document what happens every Friday and Saturday night on patrol.

Unlike other police ride-along shows, everything happens live and viewers get to see calls from beginning to end in real time. In addition to being one of cables most-watch series and being No. 1 in DVR viewership, “Live PD” is in a rare position to highlight law enforcement across the country in an incredibly honest light.

LIVE PD Hosts Dan Abrams, Tom Morris Jr., and Sean Larkin on Thursday, October 12, 2017 in Brooklyn, New York.

ARIZONA POLICE OFFICER HELPS SAVE DISTRESSED MAN ON BRIDGE AFTER OFFERING A HUG

“Live PD” creator, executive producer and Big Fish Entertainment President Dan Cesareo told Fox News that the series started with a simple idea based on a very big concept – law enforcement accountability.

“We came across an article in a development meeting that was about officers live-tweeting from patrol. We kind of stepped back and started thinking about it. The reason they were live-tweeting was because they wanted to keep their community informed and aware of what was going on,” Cesareo said. “We sort of thought, ‘If these departments are willing to live-tweet from patrol, would they be willing to let live cameras in?’”

With that, the idea for “Live PD” was born. As it continued to grow in popularity, Cesareo noticed fans’ opinions of the show can be “a bit of a Rorschach Test” in that some will watch and find the officer’s conduct inappropriate, while others will watch the same scene and place all the blame squarely on the suspect.

“I think one of the successes of the show is that we very much approach it like we’re documenting what these officers or deputies and Sherif’s offices are doing on a night-to-night basis, but we’re neutral. We don’t have an opinion,” he said. “For us, I think the most important thing is that people are actually having a conversation about it. We want a dialogue. It feels like we reached this point where there was no dialogue. I think, when you look at any profession, you have people that are exemplary at their job and people that are incredible at what they do, and people that aren’t so great at what they do. Unfortunately, we live in a world where the negativity is what gets attention.”

‘Live PD’ creator Dan Cesareo told Fox News that the show started out of a desire for police to document themselves.

He is quick to give credit to both the show’s crew as well as the various law enforcement agencies that agree to let cameras film every weekend knowing it’s a big public relations risk given the increased climate of police scrutiny.

“Those were hard conversations in the beginning, to get departments to want to throw in and let live cameras in,” Cesareo explained. “But we’ve gotten to the point where, departments and Sheriff’s Offices and state agencies were looking at their team and saying, ‘We have a great team that goes out every night and works hard and does a really great job. We feel comfortable being transparent and letting the cameras in. What do we have to lose?’”

Although Cesareo says he’s incredibly proud of the conversation that “Live PD” has sparked in America, he’s also aware that viewers continue to tune in because they want to see some exciting police work and the human drama behind policing a community. The show’s lack of editing constantly offers raw moments that wouldn’t make it onto other police shows. However, it also leaves room to showcase the slower nights on the job.

“You never know what’s going to happen, a show can start off a little slow and then the craziest thing can happen just before 10 p.m. It’s the only show on TV where the endings aren’t written. There’s nothing else like it,” he said. “We really approached the show as a math problem. How many officers do you need to be riding with on a given night in how many different locations to always feel like there’s a new call or there’s something new happening every 3 to 5 minutes?”

While “Live PD” helps bring police accountability to the screen, the “Live PD” cameras have stirred controversy as well. However, the series’ creator believes that as long as they continue to be there as documentarians, the show acts as a net-positive for these communities.

“For me, I think the presence of our cameras is a good thing. I would much rather have them there documenting what’s going on than not being there,” he explained. “All of this stuff is happening with or without the cameras. Sometimes, any sort of… criticism from any of these communities, I think at times is completely unfair. People just don’t want to acknowledge what might be happening down the street from their house.”

California deputy shot while getting food at Jack in the Box has died, officials say

Southern California sheriff’s deputy Joseph Gilbert Solano, who was shot and critically wounded on Monday while getting food at a fast-food restaurant, has died, officials announced.

Solano, a 13-year-veteran deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, died Wednesday afternoon surrounded by loved ones.

Rhett Nelson, a 30-year-old Utah man who his family had reported missing, was identified as the suspected gunman, investigators said.  He was arrested a day after the shooting when his father called authorities to turn him in.

“We have the suspect in custody,” Sheriff Alex Villanueva said at a news conference Wednesday.

UTAH MAN ARRESTED IN SHOOTING OF OFF-DUTY CALIFORNIA DEPUTY AT JACK IN THE BOX

“We are continuing processing all the information, all the evidence to present a solid case for prosecution,” he added.

Nelson was suspected of walking into a Jack in the Box restaurant in the eastern Los Angeles suburb of Alhambra on Monday night and shooting Solano in the head.

The 50-year-old deputy was off duty at the time. Paramedics rushed him to the hospital in grave condition and doctors put him on life support, Villanueva said.

Solano was not wearing anything that would identify him as a law-enforcement officer and investigators said the shooting appeared to be random.

He added that there was “no prior knowledge, there’s no indication that he knew that the person was a law-enforcement officer.”

He continued, “The deputy was alerted in the restaurant that someone was following him and that’s when he turned to confront it and that’s when the shooting happened.”

Villanueva added, “The motive or rationale from the suspect, that’s a million-dollar question.”

Long Beach police took Nelson into custody Tuesday after he stopped at a church and called his father in Utah, Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau Capt. Kent Wegener said.

“In that call, he referred to committing a murder in Southern California,” he added.

Wegener said Nelson’s father called police who traced the call to the church, and shortly thereafter, Long Beach officers spotted him in a car near the church and arrested him without incident.

Investigators said they were looking into whether he killed another man an hour earlier on Monday in what appeared to be another random attack.

Chief Michel Moore with the Los Angeles Police Department said a 30-year-old man standing on a street near downtown Los Angeles on Monday was shot and killed after somebody inside a vehicle “had a brief exchange with our victim” and “gunfire erupted.”

He added that Nelson’s description and the car he was driving matched those seen at both shootings.

At the news conference Wednesday, Villanueva acknowledged police also were investigating whether Nelson was linked to numerous armed robberies in the San Diego area.

“It’s an astonishing level of violent crime in such a short period of time and we can only think that but for this last incident that crime spree may have continued,” said Villanueva.

“But, we’re fortunate that the father of the suspect made a very key phone call to the Long Beach Police Department that allowed us to put the resources together to detain him so there were no further victims in this person’s crime spree that didn’t look like it would be abated until he was actually arrested.”

Nelson’s father issued a statement on Tuesday saying he was “saddened beyond words” by the shooting “and to learn that our son Rhett is being held in connection with this horrifying and senseless attack.”

He said his son disappeared on May 26.

In a May 30 Facebook post, Nelson’s father said his son “has a history of opiate abuse and has been clean for about 6 months, but we know what a terrible struggle that is. We are praying for his safe return.”

The Salt Lake Tribune reported that Nelson did not have a violent criminal history in Utah but previously had pleaded guilty to driving with a “measurable amount” of a controlled substance in his body.

Solano was most recently assigned to the department’s custody division. Villanueva described him as a family man well-liked by everyone who worked with him.

“Not only did I lose a father figure but a best friend,” Solano’s step-daughter told reporters on Wednesday as she held back tears. “I would like to thank everybody who has supported us, sent us prayers, and the whole entire law enforcement.”

His son also got emotional as he spoke at the news conference calling Solano “a really good dad.”

Solano’s girlfriend called the attack a “senseless tragedy” and thanked law enforcement for “apprehending the perpetrator.”

She added, “Although the outcome was not what we wished it to be, we have solace knowing that he is in a better place now.”

A Los Angeles police officer died Sunday during a surgery stemming from an on-duty traffic collision — that occurred four years prior, officials said.

Officer Esmerelda Ramirez, 49, died following complications from the surgery related to the 2015 collision, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Ramirez was a member of the department since 2008, and “was a valued member of Pacific Division where she worked in a variety of assignments.”

Police did not immediately release information on the crash that led to her death.

“We will, not as an organization but as a family, never forget her sacrifice,” he wrote.

A Minnesota police officer is showing that one of the varieties of ways officers assist those they serve is by grabbing a lawnmower.

The Orono Police Department posted a photo on social media Thursday showing Officer Matt Siltala confronting knee-high weeds with a push mower at a home where he had just conducted a welfare check on the owner, a woman living alone.

“She was ok and Matt asked her why her yard is so unkempt,” police said. “She said she doesn’t have anyone to mow for her. He grabbed her mower and cut the front yard. Very cool.”

Philadelphia’s first openly gay deputy sheriff found dead at his desk in apparent suicide

Philadelphia’s first openly gay Deputy Sheriff committed suicide at his desk from an apparent gunshot wound on Friday, just before the city’s weekend of pride celebrations were set to begin.

Dante Austin, 27, was found dead at his desk at the Philadelphia Sheriff’s office. An official cause of death is awaiting confirmation from the local Medical Examiner’s office.

Austin was an Army veteran who also served as the department’s first LGBTQ community liaison and was known as a “fierce advocate.” He was set to be promoted to the position of sergeant next month, according to CBS Philly.

Sheriff Jewell Williams reflected on Austin’s service with the Philadelphia Police Department, which he joined in 2013, and called his death “a tragedy for the Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Austin’s family and the local LGBTQ community.”

“Dante was a person who believed in and cared about everybody,” Williams said.

TEXAS POLICE CHIEF’S BODY FOUND AFTER BEING KNOCKED OVERBOARD BY LARGE WAVE

“He had the highest score on the Deputy Sheriff’s exam when he was hired in November 2013. He was our first openly gay deputy sheriff and we promoted him to become our first LGBTQ community liaison in May 2017.”

The Mayor’s Commission on LGBT Affairs also issued a statement in the wake of Austin’s death, describing his significant impact on the community in Philadelphia.

“Dante worked tirelessly, always, to lift up the most marginalized among us, to secure safety and protection for the most vulnerable, and to serve his community with unparalleled dedication and a warmth and generosity that moved so many of us,” it read.

“Dante’s legacy is one of boldness, bravery, compassion, and an unfailing commitment to a kinder and more just world for all. As we move forward in mourning and honoring our friend and colleague, may we cherish and celebrate the ways he changed us, improved our city, and protected and saved lives.”
