Authorities on Saturday detained a man for questioning in relation to a “shooting incident” at a Southern California synagogue, officials said.

The situation unfolded at Chabad of Poway synagogue before noon, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department’s Poway station said on Twitter.

“A man has been detained for questioning in connection with a shooting incident at the Chabad of Poway synagogue,” the station tweeted. “@SDSOPoway Deputies were called to Chabad Way just before 11:30 a.m.”

“There are injuries. This is a developing situation,” the tweet continued.

Injured individuals were transported to the Palomar Medical Center, the sheriff added.

The update came after the sheriff’s department notified the public that deputies were looking into “reports of a man with a gun.”

“Be aware of increased law enforcement activity in the 16000 block of Chabad Way as @SDSOPoway Deputies investigate reports of a man with a gun,” the tweet said. “Please stay clear of the area and allow deputies to safely do their job.”

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.

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.

After her arrest, Wellner pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, a violation, and served a sentence of 10 days of community service picking up trash for the New York City Parks Department, the paper reported.

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.

A 46-year-old man shot his 38-year-old wife as she laid in bed, police said. The man then took his own life on April 11. The couple’s two young children were not injured in the incident.

The children were at the home for “several days” before officers responded to the home on Sunday, April 14 after receiving calls of an “assault with a deadly weapon shots fired” at the residence. The names of the children and the parents were not immediately available due to the ongoing probe, ABC News reported.

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.

Fox News’ Andrew O’Reilly contributed to this story.

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.”

BODY OF MISSING 5-YEAR-OLD BOY FOUND IN SHALLOW GRAVE, PARENTS CHARGED WITH MURDER

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.

The documents also claimed that authorities used cell phone data to track Terri and Samuel Sullivan to the site where Terri Sullivan was allegedly kidnapped and killed, as well as the site where her burned car and body was found.

Former Florida police officer gets 25 years in shooting death of stranded driver

A former police officer in Florida has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after being convicted in the shooting death of a driver whose car had broken down.

Circuit Judge Joseph Marx issued the sentence Thursday to Nouman Raja,41, a former officer in Palm Beach Gardens who was found guilty of killing of 31-year-old Corey Jones on Oct. 18, 2015.

“This has been a heartbreaking case,” Marx said. “I think it has had a profound effect on every single person who sat through this trial.”

Prosecutors said Jones, who was a member of a reggae band, was heading home from a performance at a nightclub when he pulled off to the side of the road after his car broke down.

Raja, who was dressed in plainclothes and driving an unmarked white van as a part of an auto burglary investigation team, approached Jones but never properly identified himself as a police officer, prosecutors said.

Jones had a concealed-weapons permit and was carrying a handgun.

At the time of the encounter, Jones had been on his phone, talking to a tow-truck dispatcher and the call was recorded. But police were not initially aware of the recording.

“You good?” the police officer is heard asking Jones.

“Yeah,” Jones responds.

Suddenly, Raja shouts at Jones to raise his hands, using an expletive. Jones replies, “Hold on!” and Raja repeats his demand.

Prosecutors believe Jones pulled his gun and tried to run away, Raja fired three shots and Jones ran down an embankment.

Jones then threw his gun, but Raja fired three more times, 10 seconds after the first volley. One of the bullets pierces Jones’ heart while other shots hit him in both arms, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors said Raja, not knowing of the tow-truck dispatcher recording, sought to deceive investigators. He claimed he said, “Police. Can I help you?” as Jones jumped from the SUV. He also told them Jones leaped backward and pointed his gun, forcing the officer to fire. Raja said Jones ran but turned and again pointed his gun, forcing the officer to fire the second volley.

Raja was charged with manslaughter and attempted murder. His sentencing marks the first time in 30 years that a Florida law enforcement agent has been convicted and sentenced for an on-duty killing.

A man who had allegedly been hiding out in his ex-girlfriend’s Pittsburgh home is now facing burglary charges, officials said.

Cary Michael Cocuzzi’s ex-girlfriend, who had a protection from abuse order against Cocuzzi, discovered her ex in her bedroom Saturday, authorities said.

The woman, who was not identified, told WPXI she saw signs around her home someone else was inside with her, such as when she discovered a blanket on the floor even though she hadn’t left it there.

“I feel like this is going to affect me for the rest of my life,” she told WPXI. “I had an intuition about it but I ignored it, I brushed it aside. I didn’t want to seem paranoid. But I should have trusted my instincts because I was right.”

Cocuzzi, 31, allegedly grabbed the woman, put a hand over her mouth and told her “Get over here,” according to the criminal complaint.

However, she pushed him away and was able to make it outside, where her terrified screams spurred several neighbors to call 911, officials said.

When police arrived and searched the home, they reported Cocuzzi was still there. They said he told officers he was homeless and had been sneaking in and out of the house for about two weeks.

The woman told the media outlet she was thankful her daughters were not at the residence at the time of the incident.

Cocuzzi is being held in the Allegheny County Jail and a preliminary hearing is slated for May 2. It was not immediately clear if he had retained an attorney.
