California authorities on Saturday said the mother and aunt of a “critically missing” 6-year-old were arrested for the boy’s murder.

Police in Apple Valley responded to a home on Thursday night after a family member asked “for a welfare check” on 6-year-old Duke Flores, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.

Jakee Contreras, the boy’s mother, told deputies that he hadn’t “been seen for approximately two weeks,” prompting authorities to scour the area, the department said.

The mother was arrested and booked in a detention center for child neglect “for her delay in reporting him missing.”

The following day, detectives arrived at the scene and the search for the missing child continued, according to officials.

“Detectives gathered evidence and conducted multiple interviews throughout the day with family members,” the news release said.

Following an interview with Contreras on Saturday, she was booked for murder and held without bond, officials said. The same day, Jennifer Contreras, the boy’s aunt, was also arrested and booked for murder, according to the sheriff’s department. She is also held without bail.

“The investigation is ongoing and detectives are continuing the search for Duke Flores,” officials said.

Oklahoma mom says three children hit by police during shootout

An Oklahoma mother is fearing for her children’s lives after a police shootout caused left three of her four children with injuries.

Olivia Hill and her four children were in a pickup truck driven by William Devaughn Smith, 21, who police in Hugo pegged as a suspect in an April 11 armed robbery of a Pizza Hut.

According to KXII-TV, officers approached Smith near the Texas state line on Friday and a shootout ensued.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) said the incident started after Smith allegedly hit a Hugo police officer with his vehicle while trying to get away.

A second deputy reportedly was nearly hit by the truck and fired shots in fear for his safety.

“As they tried to approach the suspect, there was an incident that happened. An officer-involved shooting took place,” said OSBI spokeswoman Jenny Virden told KXII-TV.

The OSBI said Smith is in custody, two officers had minor injuries and the three innocent children were hospitalized.

The hospital where the children are being treated didn’t release their condition, but Hill says her 2-year-old child was not hurt. The other three, she said, were not as lucky.

“My 4-year-old daughter was shot in the head, and she has a bullet in her brain, and my 5-year-old has a skull fracture,” Hill told news station KXII-TV. “My 1-year-old baby has gunshot wounds on her face.”

Virden was unable to confirm whether officers knew the kids were inside the truck when they started shooting.

“Of course we’re still talking to witnesses, doing interviews and we’re still trying to find out exactly what happened,” she said.

Hugo police say Smith was shot in the incident and was treated and released to police custody from a Paris hospital.

Hugo police said on their Facebook page that Smith allegedly entered the back entrance of the restaurant, pressed an object to an employee’s back and demanded money. Police said the worker handed over money and the robber left.

Smith hasn’t been formally charged yet in the shooting or Pizza Hut robbery, but police told KXII-TV he’s in custody and faces a first-degree felony charge of aggravated robbery.

He hasn’t been formally charged yet in the shooting or Pizza Hut robbery, but police told KII-TV he’s in custody and faces a 1st degree felony charge of aggravated robbery.

A jury has returned a $1.2 million verdict in a lawsuit that accused a New York City cop of manhandling a prominent cancer doctor before she clipped him with her car.

Dr. Rachel Wellner, 43, had sued the NYPD, claiming she was the victim of excessive force during a 2016 traffic stop that ended with her arrest on charges of injuring the officer, the New York Post reported Friday.

The breast cancer surgeon became a tabloid villain after telling cops during the incident: “I’m the hero; the cops are not.”

Breast cancer surgeon Dr. Rachel Wellner was awarded $1.2 million in a federal lawsuit that accused a New York City cop of manhandling her after she clipped him with her car.

The cop she was accused of injuring, Officer Niguel Vega, testified in the lawsuit that he had come into physical contact with Wellner, according to the paper.

It wasn’t immediately clear how the jury determined Vega had used excessive force or why she was awarded $1.2 million, the Post reported.

Wellner was seeking $30 million in damages.

“We’re just happy they were able to see through the lies and deception of the police and were able to get to the truth of the matter,” Wellner’s lawyer, Jon Norinsberg, said.

A young girl was hailed a “hero” by California police officers after she kept herself and her infant brother alive for “several days” following their parents’ murder-suicide.

Capt. Maureen Ryan of the Topanga division of the Los Angeles Police Department called the young girl “a hero.”

“The baby is a miracle baby and the little girl is a hero. She’s an absolute hero,” Ryan said at a press conference.

Death penalty sought for suspect in slaying of California sheriff’s deputy — despite Dem governor’s moratorium

Prosecutors in California are seeking the death penalty for a man accused of killing a sheriff’s deputy in Sacramento last September, according to a report.

The Friday announcement from the Sacramento District Attorney’s office comes just after California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a moratorium on the death penalty in the state, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Prosecutors in four California counties are also seeking the death penalty for accused Golden State Killer Joseph DeAngelo.

Anton Lemon Paris, 38, faces four counts of felony murder, attempted murder and felon-in-possession-of-a-firearm charges in the shooting death of Deputy Mark Stasyuk, 27, and injuries to his partner Deputy Julie Robertson, 28, as well as a store employee, the Bee reported.

Stasyuk and Robertson headed to a Sacramento area Pep Boys auto service store on Sept. 17 of last year after employees reported Paris harassing workers and knocking items from shelves.

The arriving officers faced gunfire almost immediately, according to the report. Robertson was shot in an arm and Stasyuk was shot twice – once in the back and once in the back of the head. Robertson attempted to give first aid to Stasyuk during what the Sacramento County Sheriff called an “extensive” firefight. Pep Boys employee Arturo Nolasco was also shot once in the back.

“Instead of taking the opportunity to flee in either direction, [Paris] followed Deputy Stasyuk into the parking lot, continuing to fire at his back and struck him one time in the back of the head. This caused his almost immediate death,” Sheriff Scott Jones said in September, according to Sacramento’s KCRA-TV.

Paris, who was shot multiple times, was arraigned 10 days after the shooting in his hospital room. He is a convicted felon with an extensive criminal history and is expected to be back in court May 17.

When Newsom signed his moratorium in March, he cited “disparity” in the way the punishment has been applied in the Golden State and said “a more enlightened choice” would be better for the state’s criminal justice system.

“If someone kills, we do not kill,” Newsom said. “We’re better than that.”

Earlier this month, however, some relatives of murder victims and several district attorneys denounced the governor’s stand.

“Governor Newsom took a knife and stabbed all the victims and all the victims’ families in the heart,” Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said.

California authorities arrested a driver who allegedly defied “a lawful order” and hauled off 285 gallons of diesel fuel in a minivan, officials said Friday.

Five containers of fuel were found inside the unidentified driver’s vehicle, the California Highway Patrol’s (CHP) Oroville division said on Facebook.

“We understand fuel prices are going up, but this is not the way to stock up on fuel,” the CHP said. “For obvious reasons this is highly illegal and dangerous.”

The agency provided a few photos of the containers in the minivan, as well as one of the fuel pump, which showed the roughly $943 price tag.

The minivan was impounded and the driver was arrested, CHP said, later offering a more in-depth explanation as to why.

Upon running into law enforcement, the man behind the wheel was given “a verbal yet lawful order” that he couldn’t “transport that much fuel,” CHP said in a separate post. They added that they gave him information to assist him in moving it.

“He was told not to move the vehicle from the fuel station until the vehicle was in compliance,” CHP said. “As soon as we left, he pulled out from the fuel station and was stopped again. He was arrested for disobeying a lawful order.”

Authorities in Alabama arrested a man and a woman Thursday in connection with the disappearance and murder of the man’s estranged wife, officials said.

Samuel Sullivan, 42, and Jennifer Sullivan, 44, both of Wilmer, Ala., were taken into custody by Washington County Sheriff’s Deputies as well as agents from the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) and State Bureau of Investigation “in connection to the missing person’s case of Samuel’s estranged wife Terri Sullivan.”

Jail records showed that Jennifer Sullivan was charged with capital murder and first-degree kidnapping. Fox 10 reported that Samuel Sullivan faced the same charges.

Terri Sullivan was last seen on Jan. 20. Washington County Sheriff Richard Stringer told Fox 10 that she and Samuel Sullivan were in the process of getting divorced at the time of her disappearance. The sheriff also said that Samuel Sullivan and Jennifer Sullivan are ex-spouses.

According to the station, Terri Sullivan claimed that Samuel Sullivan cheated on her and was physically and emotionally abusive. She also claimed her husband was breeding and raising roosters for cockfighting on the property.

Terri Sullivan’s burned car with her remains inside was found last month. Fox 10, citing court documents filed Friday, reported that she died of blunt force trauma around the time of her disappearance.
