Killed – Joshua A. Johnson (Norfolk, VA)

Joshua Johnson

Johnson and Virgie May Hairston, 21, tried to cash a stolen check at the Wells Fargo at 21st Street and Colonial Avenue about 2:40 p.m. Monday. A teller called 911 to report the incident while the suspects’ Mercedes was still in the bank’s drive-through lane. Two officers arrived within minutes.

The first officer got out of his car on Colonial Avenue and went toward the drive-through lanes. The second officer blocked the Mercedes with his squad car, before getting out.

As the first officer walked behind the Mercedes, Johnson put the car in reverse and accelerated, throwing him onto the trunk as the car continued, hitting curbs and bushes.

The other officer, standing in front of the car, began firing at Johnson after losing sight of his colleague, fearing he was behind or under the car. Johnson, of the 300 block of W. 27th St., died at the scene.

Hairston, of the 500 block of W. 26th St., was found uninjured on the passenger floor of the Mercedes. She was arrested and charged with conspiring to commit larceny.

Killed – Terry Laffitte (Los Angeles, CA)

Terry Laffitte1

Terry Laffitte, a 49-year-old black man, was fatally wounded by a sheriff’s deputy  Saturday, May 18 in the 6100 block of Miramonte Boulevard in South Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 9:10 p.m., deputies say they saw a man riding a bicycle without headlights or tail lights who appeared to be intoxicated. When they tried to stop him, the man continued to ride to a home on Miramonte Boulevard and headed to the back, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department news release.

Two deputies followed Laffitte and confronted him. Laffitte punched one of the deputies and both  he and the deputy fell to the ground. While the two stuggled, Laffitte’s family rushed out and joined in, punching and yelling at deputies, according to the release.

Laffitte then pulled out a gun, prompting deputies to draw their guns and fire. He died at 9:51 p.m. in the yard, according to coroner’s records.

The department said that Laffitte and several of the family members who attacked deputies are gang members.

Killed – Freddy Batt Sosa (Tucson, AZ)

male

A man armed with a BB gun who was fighting with his sister was shot and killed by two Tucson police officers Saturday night on the south side.

The man was identified as Freddy Batt Sosa.

Sosa, 22, was fatally wounded while at El Pueblo Regional Center, 101 W. Irvington Road, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

The shooting happened shortly after 7 p.m. when Sgt. Will Corrales and Officer Jesus Tapia, who were in one patrol car, were dispatched to where a man and woman were physically fighting near the parking lot of the center, Widmer said.

During the investigation, detectives found out that Sosa was fighting with his sister.

Detectives also found out that Sosa was armed with a black Stinger P311 BB gun, which looks like a handgun, Widmer said. Some such BB guns have orange tips; the one Sosa had did not.

Killed – Naim Keith Labaki (Evanston, WY)

Naim Keith Labaki1

An Evanston man was killed following a high-speed chase and shootout with local authorities Saturday afternoon, according to Evanston Police.

Local authorities say the incident’s flashpoint occurred shortly after 2 p.m. when Naim “Keith” Labaki, 43, fired a single shot in front of his residence on the 800 block of Uinta Street. Labaki then reportedly fled in his white 1995 Ford Explorer to a Sports World store 14nearby, where he demanded an additional weapon.

Labaki left when employees refused his demands, then drove his vehicle to the front of the store and fired another shot inside. No one at Labaki’s residence or in Sports World was injured, police say.

Local law enforcement pursued Labaki in a high-speed chase until he collided with an unmarked police vehicle at about 2:40 p.m.

Labaki then leveled his rifle at an Evanston police officer from inside his vehicle, a press release states. The officer and a Uinta County Sheriff’s deputy responded by shooting at the suspect.

Labaki was hit, and immediately transported to Evanston Regional Hospital, where we was pronounced dead.

Killed – Brent E. Brozek (Madison, WI)

Brent E. Brozek

Three Madison Police Department officers involved in the fatal shooting of Brent E. Brozek on May 17 have been cleared by the department.

A summary of the Professional Standards and Internal Affairs review, released on Thursday, said Officers Ryan Orvis, Ryan Finnegan and Scott Templeton have been exonerated regarding the department’s policies on use of deadly force and use of non-deadly force.

Brozek, 43, was shot and killed May 17 outside his Far East Side condominum when he charged at the officers while carrying a sword.

Brozek had been in a standoff with police earlier in the day when he refused to be evicted out of his foreclosed home.

At around 9 p.m., the man emerged from the residence, and officers tried to engage him in conversation, according to a statement by police. However, he brandished a large sword and charged at officers, who first tried to stop him by firing non-lethal bean-bag rounds, police said.

Whether he was hit by any of those bean-bag rounds was not immediately determined and will be part of the DCI investigation, DeSpain said.

The man made a second charge and more than one officer fired multiple rounds at the man, police said.

Killed – Misty Michelle Mullins (Raleigh, NC)

Misty Michelle Mullins

RALEIGH, N.C. — A Wake County deputy fatally shot a woman Friday afternoon after she charged at him and two other deputies with a knife, Sheriff Donnie Harrison said.

Someone called 911 at 11:45 a.m. to report that a woman was breaking into a home at 6232 Melbourne Road and was threatening the caller with a garden rake, Harrison said. When deputies arrived 10 minutes later, they found a woman breaking into a second home at 6222 Melbourne Road.

Misty Michelle Mullins and her boyfriend rented that home until a couple weeks ago, the property owner said. The pair had broken up, and Mullins was no longer listed on the lease.

The man had a protective order against Mullins, 33, saying she had assaulted him on April 25 and had threatened him with a knife and a baseball bat, according to court records. The order bars her from the 6222 Melbourne Road home and the man’s workplace.

Deputies tried to persuade Mullins to come out of the home. When she wouldn’t, they entered.

Mullins then charged at the deputies with a machete, witnesses said, and they used a stun gun to try to subdue her. When that failed three times, Deputy Gabriel Romero shot and killed her.

Killed – Tony Nim (Alhambra, CA)

male

ALHAMBRA– Three police officers who shot and killed a mentally ill man carrying a large knife in the lobby of the police department earlier this month have returned to active duty, officials said Wednesday.

The officers involved in the May 17 shooting were Officer Carlos Donato, Officer Brandon Cardella and Sgt. Edward Elizalde. Donato has been with the department since 2006, Elizalde since 1995 and Cardella since 1999, said Lt. Dave Coleman of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.

Khan Tony Nim, 35, of Alhambra, was shot and killed by the three officers around 7:30 a.m. on May 17 after he walked into the department lobby holding a large black backpack.

Five officers responded to the scene and tried to communicate with Nim, but he was unresponsive. When Nim produced a 12-inch kitchen carving knife, Coleman said, three officers fired. At least one officer in the lobby did have a stun gun, but was unable to deploy it.

Double Shooting – Killed – Andrea Rebello (Uniondale, NY)

Andrea Rebello1

UNIONDALE (WABC) – A Hofstra University student and a suspect were killed during an apparent home invasion robbery in Uniondale overnight Friday.

The victim has been identified as Andrea Rebello of Westchester County.

The shots rang out inside an off-campus house on California Avenue just after 2:30 a.m.

Police responded to a report of a home invasion robbery in a house where three female students and one male student live. Authorities say the incident began when an armed man with a black ski mask forced his way inside.

One of the victims was permitted to leave the home, apparently to withdraw money from an ATM, and she called 911.

Somehow, gunfire erupted after police arrived. One responding officer said the scene resemebed a hostage situation, with the suspect pointing a gun at the heads of his victims.

Rebello, and the suspect, who police say was not a student, were both killed.

Authorities have said an officer answering a call about a home invasion at Rebello’s Uniondale rental home fired his gun after confronting Dalton Smith, a 30-year-old ex-convict from Hempstead.

At the time, Smith had a gun to Rebello’s head while holding her in a headlock, according to authorities. The officer fired after Smith pointed a gun at him, and the gunfire struck and killed Rebello and Smith, according to police, who haven’t publicly revealed the officer’s name. Law enforcement sources have identified the officer as Nikolas Budimlic.

The Nassau County cop who fatally shot a Hofstra University student during a terrifying home-invasion standoff is “inconsolable,” sources told The Post yesterday.

“He blames himself and keeps replaying it in his mind,” a police source said. “He is torn up about the poor girl.”

Killed – James Genda (Akron, OH)

James Genda

AKRON — University of Akron’s police chief told FOX 8 News that a 64-year-old man, who was killed during a traffic stop, had a pellet gun.

The chief said the gun looked like a 45 caliber semi-automatic.

A University of Akron officer fired his weapon during a traffic stop Thursday morning, according to The University of Akron.

Around 11 a.m., the officer pulled over the vehicle on Wolf Ledges Road near the Akron Main Post Office for improper registration.

When the officer asked the man for his driver’s license and registration, the officer said it appeared the driver pulled out a handgun, which turned out to be a pellet gun.

That’s when the officer fired at the driver.

Killed – Justin Cairns (Spokane, WA)

Justin Cairns1

SPOKANE, Wash. — Two people are dead following two shootings early Thursday in Spokane. Police said it started around 1:30 a.m. on the 1500 block of West Grace near Maple Street.

A call came into dispatchers reporting a man had been hit by a car.  When officers arrived, they found a man lying in the road with gunshot wounds to the chest.

Medics took the victim, Cyrus Jones, to the hospital with life-threatening injuries but he later died. The Spokane County Medical Examiner ruled his death a homicide. The autopsy report stated that Jones dead from gunshot wounds.

Police tracked the man accused of killing Jones  to a home in the Nine Mile Falls area about 45 minutes after they arrived at the scene on Grace. They used information on the suspect’s car to track him down to a home along the 22000 block of West Charles Road.

Officers observed a vehicle at the location matching the description of the vehicle used by the homicide suspect.  Investigators said police believed the suspect was still armed and began setting up a perimeter around the house.

Authorities contacted the suspect outside of the house. Police Chief Frank Straub said the suspect came outside and shut off the lights. Investigators said the man failed to follow commands when he was confronted by the officers.

During the incident, shots were fired by the officers. Those shots hit the suspect and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Justin Cairns, 21, died early Thursday morning after being shot by police outside his Nine Mile Falls home. Police said Cairns shot and killed Cyrus C. Jones, 33, on West Grace Avenue earlier that morning.

Killed – Louis Squires (Springfield, MA)

Louis Squires

PRINGFIELD (WGGB) — One man is dead after being shot by police Wednesday.

It all began as a domestic related incident Wednesday morning, just before 6:00, on Albemarle Street.

Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney says that 27-year-old Ethel McCreary had gone to the home of 44-year-old Louis Squires to confront him about reportedly seeing another woman.

Delaney adds that McCreary was upset and threw a cinder block into the window of his rental car, slashed his tires, and keyed the car.

Witnesses tell police that when Squires confronted McCreary, who police say was his estranged girlfriend, he allegedly went into that car and pulled out a shotgun.

Squires then allegedly turned and started opening fire on McCreary. She ran and sought cover behind a nearby car.

As the gunfire rang out, officers were alerted to the situation after “ShotSpotter” went off indicating gunfire near 93 Albemarle Street.

Officers responded and were met by gunfire from Squires, with some bullets hitting a cruiser. They quickly retreated back up the street and called for backup, while Louis allegedly continued to fire at them.

Backup units arrived and were finally able to find McCreary, who was not injured, and move her to safety.

Delaney says that Squires then moved toward the backyards of homes on Braddock Street and continued to open fire on the officers, who returned fire.

Squires was hit by gunfire and police were able to move in and get Squires into custody. At the same time, first aid was rendered.

Squires was taken to Baystate Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Killed – Bobby Earl Driggers (Brandon, FL)

Bobby Earl Driggers

BRANDON FL (WFLA) -
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has identified the suspect who was shot and killed by a deputy on Tuesday afternoon as 50-year-old Bobby  Earl Driggers of Seffner.

The sheriff’s office says Driggers was wanted on charges of grand theft auto and fraudulent use of a credit card when he was spotted at about 1:15 p.m. Tuesday by 18-year veteran Detective Jack Thompson, 46, standing next to a jeep parked at a home on Wheeler Road in Brandon.

Detective Thompson called for backup, but was attacked by Driggers in a matter of seconds. During the struggle, both Driggers and Thompson ended up in the back seat of the Jeep. Driggers ripped Detective Thompson’s holster and gun from his belt according to the HCSO.

Deputy Manuel Gonzalez, 37, arrived as the backup and found Detective Thompson fighting with Driggers.  A press release put out by the HCSO says that Gonzalez found Thompson and Driggers fighting for the gun, and Thompson yelled at Gonzalez, “Shoot him, he has my gun.”

Deputy Gonzalez fired one shot at Driggers, hitting him in the upper body. Driggers was taken to Tampa General Hospital where he died a short time later.

Killed – Rodney Pike (Gwinnett County, GA)

Rodney Pike

A 38-year-old man was shot and killed Monday afternoon after allegedly hitting one police officer with a SUV, Gwinnett County police said.

Two police officers fired shots at the man, identified as Rodney Oneil Pike of Buford, before he could strike a second officer, Cpl. Jake Smith said. None of the officers involve1540d were seriously injured, but Pike died at the scene, in the 5300 block of Pass Court in Sugar Hill, Smith said.

Police were dispatched to the street around 3:40 p.m. Monday after a caller reported Pike was in the area and had active warrants out of Forsyth County. The caller’s name and relationship to Pike were not released.

Fed up with her son using drugs and eluding law enforcement, a Gwinnett County mother called police Monday afternoon to report his location.

Joan Morgan, of Sugar Hill, told police her son, Rodney Pike, was a wanted man who needed help during the call, obtained Tuesday by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Morgan’s words proved an eerie foreshadowing of what was to come.

Killed – Gerald Tyrone Murphy (Trenton, NJ)

Gerald Tyrone Murphy

(CNN) – Police burst into a home early Sunday in Trenton, New Jersey, finding a woman and her 13-year-old son dead, and three of her other children being held hostage, authorities said.

The suspect, Gerald Tyrone Murphy, 38, was shot by police and died from his wounds, authorities said at a news conference Sunday. The hostages were ages 18, 16, and 4, police said.

The raid ended a 37-hour standoff that began Friday afternoon when police responded to a phone call from a family member of Carmelita Stevens, who had not heard from her for a period of time. They received additional information that Stevens’ two daughters had not been to school in 12 days.

About 3:45 a.m. Sunday, authorities entered the upstairs room, confronted Murphy and rescued the three hostages. A single shot was fired by New Jersey State Police “to stop a threatening action against one of the children by Murphy,” said Fuentes.

Murphy was wounded, taken into custody and taken to a nearby medical center, where he later died of his injuries. No law enforcement officers were injured.

A preliminary investigation found that Stevens, 44, and her 13-year-old son were killed approximately two weeks ago, police said. They believe both were killed around the same time.

A child whose body was found in a New Jersey home during a tense, 37-hour standoff died from stab wounds, authorities said Tuesday. The announcement came a day after police said his mother also died from stab wounds as well as blunt force trauma.

Killed – Rigoberto Arceo (Cudahy, CA)

Rigoberto Arceo1

CUDAHY, Calif. (KTLA) — A deputy fatally shot a man who tried to grab his gun during a struggle on Saturday night in Cudahy, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

The shooting happened at about 10 p.m. on Walnut Street near Otis Avenue, just south of East Los Angeles.

Initially, East L.A. deputies responded to a report of a fight and a man with a gun.

Deputies were also told that a vehicle had been seen leaving the location and the man may have been inside.

The man and the car were found a short time later.

When approached, he tried to take a deputy’s gun and was shot in the upper torso, the sheriff’s department said.

The man was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

According to the sheriff’s account, Arceo exited the vehicle at Walnut Street and Otis Avenue, advanced on the deputy and attempted to take the deputy’s gun. The deputy fired a single shot, striking Arceo in the upper torso.

Maria Arceo, was in the driver’s seat and said she saw her brother exit the van and walk toward the rear of the van with his hands up. She heard a gunshot, then saw her brother disappear from the window where she’d been watching.

“His hands were in the air the entire time,” she said.

Killed – Nathan D. Brokaw (Stromsburg, NE)

Nathan D. Brokaw

A Nebraska man was killed Friday night in a wild chase and shootout with Nebraska State Troopers.

Nathan D. Brokaw, 28, of Brainard, was shot and killed after exchanging gunfire after a chase that ranged into three counties, Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said.

The uproar began early Friday evening, as the Nebraska State Patrol was watching Brokaw and another man, Joseph J. Pritchard, 31, of Stromsburg, at a home at 310 East Seventh in Stromsburg.

The men were wanted. Collins said Brokaw had warrant in Platte and Colfax Counties for terroristic threats and witness tampering. Pritchard was wanted for absconding parole.

Around 7 p.m., investigators saw the two men in a car parked in an alley behind the house. As they closed in on the car, it sped away through the yard.

Pritchard was thrown out of the passenger side door and arrested.

Two state patrol cars chased Brokaw through county roads in three counties — Polk, Butler and Seward, with Brokaw firing at troopers, Collins said.

Just north of the village of Bee, patrol cars converged and deliberatly rammed Brokaw’s car. His car ended up in the ditch on County Road 252 in Seward County. But even then Brokaw fired multiple rounds at troopers and they fired back, fatally wounding Brokaw.

During the early evening hours on Friday, May 10, investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol were conducting surveillance on two males with active felony warrants at a residence in Stromsburg. Just before 8:00 p.m., investigators observed two males sitting in a car parked in an alley behind the residence. Investigators approached the vehicle at which time the vehicle accelerated through the yard, ejecting one male suspect, out of the passenger side of the vehicle. The suspect ejected from the vehicle sustained minor injuries and was taken into custody.

Killed – Terrance Franklin (Minneapolis, MN)

Terrance Franklin1

Police said Franklin grabbed one of the officer’s guns and shot the officers. Two officers then returned fire, hitting Franklin eight times in the head, neck and torso.

Franklin was killed, and officers Ricardo Muro and Michael Meath were hit with gunfire. Both officers survived.

Franklin was killed after breaking into a home at 2717 Bryant Ave. S. around 3:30 p.m. Friday. Police initially sent a K9 into the home’s basement to assist with the arrest, but Franklin began wrestling with the dog. Four or five officers then rushed into the basement to take matters into their own hands. During the ensuing struggle, two officers were shot in the legs, and Franklin was shot multiple times and killed. All the shots were fired by a police-issued MP5.

On May 10th, 2013 at approximately 1:58 pm, the maintenance manager at an apartment building located at 2743 Lyndale Ave S called 911 to report that a burglary suspect was on the property. That call lasted for 8 ½ minutes.

This is a still image (right) isolated from surveillance video shot by a camera inside that apartment building on May 10th just prior to the 911 call you heard. A similar image, taken from the same video was handed out by the 911 caller that afternoon as police were searching for their suspect, described by multiple witnesses as a black male with dreadlocks in a ponytail, wearing red pants and a black shirt. One of the surveillance images given to officers that day was also used later by investigators to confirm Terrence Franklin’s identity with the owner of the blue PT Cruiser.152

At approximately 2:10 pm, Department of Corrections Officer Dave Scheibel, MPD Sgt. Gerald Moore, and MPD Sgt. Kathy Smulski arrived in response to that 911 call.

After Franklin crashed into the marked MPD squad car and fled the parking lot, he parked the PT Cruiser in the rear of 500 W 28th St, a fact officers later learned from a witness who called 911. That witness described a black male with dreadlocks in a pony tail wearing red pants, and a black shirt who she saw park the PT Cruiser and run away on foot, jumping fences. The witness also reported seeing a woman exit the car with two small children after the male had run away.

The apartment building maintenance manager called 911 a second time on May 10th at approximately 2:15 pm. That call lasted for more than 15 minutes and was how officers learned that Franklin had run into Flander’s Brothers bike shop at 2707 Lyndale Ave S.

The registered owner of the PT Cruiser later told investigators that she received a phone call from Franklin telling her he had been stopped by police and where she could find her car. This call occurred at approximately 2:18 pm, while he was hiding inside the bike shop. Witnesses from the bike shop later told investigators that he was acting nervous, pacing, and repeatedly looking out the windows as if he was watching for someone. At approximately 2:21 pm, Franklin ran from the bike shop as Officer Rob Illetschko arrived out in front of the shop in a fully marked squad car and in full uniform. Officer Rob Illetschko gave chase on foot, but lost sight of Franklin as he ran through alleys and yards.

At 3:13 p.m., a Minneapolis park police department squad was approached by the homeowner from 2717 Bryant Av. S. who reported a broken window on his back door.

After learning that no one should be in the home and receiving permission from the home owner to search the house, Sgt. Andy Stender yelled inside, identifying himself as a Minneapolis Police K9 officer and ordered anyone inside to exit the home. He also announced that anyone inside was likely to be bitten by the dog if they did not immediately surrender. After receiving no response, Sgt. Andy Stender, K9 Nash, Officer Lucas Peterson, Officer Mark Durand, Officer Ricardo Muro, and Officer Michael Meath entered the home at approximately 3:19 pm. Other officers maintained a perimeter around the exterior of the house in case anyone ran from one of the other doors or out a window.

At approximately 3:29 pm, ten minutes after officers had first entered the house, Department of Corrections Officer Dave Scheibel, standing just outside the house, heard multiple gunshots from inside. He immediately entered the house along with an MTC Officer and aired that shots had been fired. He saw Sgt. Stender coming up the stairs on his way out to secure his dog and was told that an officer had been shot. DOC Officer Dave Scheibel immediately went into the basement to assist.

A Hennepin County grand jury has cleared two Minneapolis police officers of any wrongdoing involving their roles in the shooting and killing of Terrance Franklin.

This call occurred at approximately 2:18 pm, while he was hiding inside the bike shop. Witnesses from the bike shop later told investigators that he was acting nervous, pacing, and repeatedly looking out the windows as if he was watching for someone. At approximately 2:21 pm, Franklin ran from the bike shop as Officer Rob Illetschko arrived out in front of the shop in a fully marked squad car and in full uniform. Officer Rob Illetschko gave chase on foot, but lost sight of Franklin as he ran through alleys and yards.

At 3:13 p.m., a Minneapolis park police department squad was approached by the homeowner from 2717 Bryant Av. S. who reported a broken window on his back door.

After learning that no one should be in the home and receiving permission from the home owner to search the house, Sgt. Andy Stender yelled inside, identifying himself as a Minneapolis Police K9 officer and ordered anyone inside to exit the home. He also announced that anyone inside was likely to be bitten by the dog if they did not immediately surrender. After receiving no response, Sgt. Andy Stender, K9 Nash, Officer Lucas Peterson, Officer Mark Durand, Officer Ricardo Muro, and Officer Michael Meath entered the home at approximately 3:19 pm. Other officers maintained a perimeter around the exterior of the house in case anyone ran from one of the other doors or out a window.

At approximately 3:29 pm, ten minutes after officers had first entered the house, Department of Corrections Officer Dave Scheibel, standing just outside the house, heard multiple gunshots from inside. He immediately entered the house along with an MTC Officer and aired that shots had been fired. He saw Sgt. Stender coming up the stairs on his way out to secure his dog and was told that an officer had been shot. DOC Officer Dave Scheibel immediately went into the basement to assist.

A Hennepin County grand jury has cleared two Minneapolis police officers of any wrongdoing involving their roles in the shooting and killing of Terrance Franklin.

Wounded – Police Officer 2 (Minneapolis, MN)

male

Police said Franklin grabbed one of the officer’s guns and shot the officers. Two officers then returned fire, hitting Franklin eight times in the head, neck and torso.

Franklin was killed, and officers Ricardo Muro and Michael Meath were hit with gunfire. Both officers survived.

Franklin was killed after breaking into a home at 2717 Bryant Ave. S. around 3:30 p.m. Friday. Police initially sent a K9 into the home’s basement to assist with the arrest, but Franklin began wrestling with the dog. Four or five officers then rushed into the basement to take matters into their own hands. During the ensuing struggle, two officers were shot in the legs, and Franklin was shot multiple times and killed. All the shots were fired by a police-issued MP5.

On May 10th, 2013 at approximately 1:58 pm, the maintenance manager at an apartment building located at 2743 Lyndale Ave S called 911 to report that a burglary suspect was on the property. That call lasted for 8 ½ minutes.

This is a still image (right) isolated from surveillance video shot by a camera inside that apartment building on May 10th just prior to the 911 call you heard. A similar image, taken from the same video was handed out by the 911 caller that afternoon as police were searching for their suspect, described by multiple witnesses as a black male with dreadlocks in a ponytail, wearing red pants and a black shirt. One of the surveillance images given to officers that day was also used later by investigators to confirm Terrence Franklin’s identity with the owner of the blue PT Cruiser.152

At approximately 2:10 pm, Department of Corrections Officer Dave Scheibel, MPD Sgt. Gerald Moore, and MPD Sgt. Kathy Smulski arrived in response to that 911 call.

After Franklin crashed into the marked MPD squad car and fled the parking lot, he parked the PT Cruiser in the rear of 500 W 28th St, a fact officers later learned from a witness who called 911. That witness described a black male with dreadlocks in a pony tail wearing red pants, and a black shirt who she saw park the PT Cruiser and run away on foot, jumping fences. The witness also reported seeing a woman exit the car with two small children after the male had run away.

Killed – Jose H. Garcia (Eureka, MO)

male

UPDATED: Authorities said a man who led officers on a high-speed chase Friday afternoon then was shot when he waved a gun at police has died of his injuries.

Police identified the man as  Jose H. Garcia, 49, of Des Plaines, Ill., which is near Chicago.

Earlier Story

A high-speed police pursuit that started in Franklin County shortly before 12:30 p.m. Friday ended in the Eureka area where the suspect was wounded in a shootout with police officers.

Sheriff Gary Toelke said the Missouri Highway Patrol was looking for the car on Interstate 44 and requested assistance in stopping it. County deputies then joined in the chase near Stanton.

The pursuit continue east on I-44 with the suspect reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph.

Pacific police set up spike strips but the suspect avoided them, the sheriff said.

As traffic slowed at Pacific, Sgt. Tom Leasor attempted to get in front of the car. At that point, the suspect pointed a gun at the officer, Toelke said.

At Eureka, the suspect got off I-44 and led officers on a chase down subdivision streets and through yards, said Toelke who was on the scene at Eureka when contacted by The Missourian at about 1:30 p.m.

Officers eventually blocked the suspect’s vehicle in a yard and the man got into the gun battle with a law enforcement officers who wounded him.

The man’s condition was not immediately released, but the sheriff reported that he was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Near Exit 109, about 7 miles east of the initial contact, the vehicle ran over spike strips, puncturing its tires, and exited the highway at Missouri Hwy. 109, according to Missouri State Trooper Justin Wheetley. After driving into a residential area of Eureka, Garcia was boxed in at about 11:45 a.m., drove at the pursuing officers and pointed a gun at them, according to the release.

Officers fired at him, hitting him multiple times, the release said. He was transported to Mercy St. Louis hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:56 p.m. according to the St. Louis County medical examiner’s office.

Killed – Tony Starnes (Richmond, IL)

male

CHICAGO (CBS) — FBI agents shot and killed a suspect and arrested two others at a bank in far northwest suburban Richmond on Friday, authorities said.

FBI Special Agent Frank Bochte confirmed agents were involved in a shooting outside the Associated Bank branch at 10910 N. Main St. in Richmond, less than a mile from the Wisconsin state line.

An employee at the NAPA Auto Parts store across the street said, around 11:30 a.m., he heard what he thought were fireworks.

The FBI said agents had the three suspects under investigation before the shooting happened on Friday morning, Special Agent Joan Hyde. She would not elaborate on why the group was being followed.

Cory B. Nelson, Special Agent in Charge of the Chicago Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and Gary S. Shapiro, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, announced the filing of charges against two individuals involved in an incident that led to the fatal shooting of a third individual.

Aaron Russel, 40, of 9200 Hunter Drive, Orland Hills, Illinois, and Roberto Favela, 34, of 5547 South California Avenue, Chicago, were charged in a criminal complaint filed late yesterday in U.S. District Court in Rockford with one count of attempted bank robbery, a felony offense.

According to the complaint, FBI special agents have been investigating Russell and others in connection with a number of armed robberies of Chicago-area jewelry stores as well as the armed robbery of a bank that occurred February 2, 2013, in Poplar Grove, Illinois. The complaint alleges that yesterday morning, law enforcement observed Favela driving a Chevy Tahoe and Tony Starnes, 45, of 7836 South Marquette Avenue, Chicago, driving a Honda Civic that had been reported stolen to Chicago Police Department late last year. A license plate observed on the Honda Civic had also been reported stolen. The complaint states that the two vehicles were seen traveling from the Chicago area to a location just across the Illinois-Wisconsin border. At that location, Russell was seen getting out of the Tahoe driven by Favela and getting into the back seat of the Honda Civic driven by Starnes. The two vehicles were then seen driving to Richmond, Illinois, and ultimately to a parking lot in front of the Associated Bank at 10910 North Main Street in Richmond, Illinois.

The complaint alleges that shortly after the Honda Civic pulled into the parking lot, it was surrounded by special agents who identified themselves as law enforcement. The complaint further alleges that the Honda Civic then rammed an agent’s vehicle and that law enforcement then shot and killed the driver, Starnes.

Russell, allegedly wearing gloves and a face mask around his neck, was removed from the back seat of the Honda Civic and taken into custody. Favela, who was still in the driver’s seat of the Tahoe in another area of the parking lot, was arrested by law enforcement at the same time. Both men appeared this morning before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael T. Mason, at which time they were formally charged and ordered held pending their next court appearance, scheduled to take place next Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. in U.S. District Court in Rockford.

In announcing the charges today, Mr. Nelson acknowledged the many law enforcement partners who lent resources and provided invaluable assistance during the course of the investigation and especially following yesterday’s events. He thanked the Chicago, Richmond, and Spring Grove (Illinois) Police Departments; the Richmond Fire Department; and the McHenry County, Will County, and Boone County Sheriff’s Offices.

Killed – Candace Jackson (Longview, TX)

Candace Jackson

More details have been revealed about last week’s standoff between Longview police and a former Good Shepherd Medical Center nurse.

 

On Thursday, 38-year-old Candace Jackson was shot by police after a standoff that lasted almost four hours. Jackson was taken to GSMC where she died shortly thereafter from her injuries.

According to the complaint, police were called to the 2000 block of Eden Drive in Longview by Jackson’s roommate on around 1:18 Thursday afternoon. Her roommate told police that Jackson had been using methamphetamines. 

The roommate said she asked Jackson where their cat was. When Jackson told her that the pet was up the street, the roommate went to go get the cat and call 911 because she knew Jackson was acting strangely and “wanted to get her some help.”

As the roommate was walking back, Jackson was walking towards her when she noticed a gun in Jackson’s pants pocket. She attempted to talk to Jackson, but Jackson told her there was going to be a “show down,” calling her roommate the “antichrist.” Jackson then pulled the gun, at which point she and her roommate began fighting over the weapon. The roommate was hit in the eye during the altercation.

The roommate was able to get the gun away and held Jackson at gunpoint until she could flag down a passing car. When that happened, Jackson ran back inside her home where the roommate told police more weapons were stored.

Authorities used gas to get Jackson out of the home. Police said she came out of the home and opened fire at police, at which point they shot her and took her by ambulance to the hospital where she died shortly after.

Killed – Bryan Snyder Valle (San Bernardino, CA)

male

Last week, Ivy Huang and Obette Lacap were planning their wedding next year at a San Diego winery.

Now, Huang’s planning her fiancé’s funeral after he was shot and killed Thursday, May 9, sitting in his car during an apparent random robbery.

Lacap, 33, of Beaumont, was sitting in a white Nissan sedan — a company car — about 11:30 a.m. in the Town Center Mall parking lot when authorities say two men approached the car and fired through the driver’s side window during either an attempted robbery or carjacking.

The car sped forward — police have theorized he may have been shot as he tried to speed away — and came to rest hanging over a short embankment at the end of the parking lot, where he was found dead inside.

A few minutes after the shooting, sheriff’s deputies spotted the suspect’s silver Chevy Malibu speeding away from the scene, which started a chase down Highway 62 from the Morongo Basin to San Bernardino.

California Highway Patrol officers cornered the car on Carnegie Drive, off Hospitality Lane, where the two men in the car jumped out and began shooting at police, authorities said. One CHP officer was shot in the leg, but was expected to recover.

One of the gunmen was killed at the scene by multiple CHP officers and sheriff’s deputies. His name has not been released by authorities. The other suspect, Jose Eduardo Gomez, 19, was shot by police and remains hospitalized.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials have identified a Central California man suspected of killing a Beaumont man, who died in a shootout with police in San Bernardino.

Bryan Snyder Valle and Jose Eduardo Guzman, both 19 of Earlimart, near Bakersfield, led police on a high speed pursuit Thursday, May 9, from Yucca Valley to San Bernardino, according to a sheriff’s statement.

The two men are accused of killing Obette Lacap, 33, of Beaumont in either an attempted robbery or carjacking Thursday morning as he sat in a mall parking lot in Yucca Valley.

Bryan Snyder Valle, 19, of Earlimart, died at the scene of the shooting May 9. Earlimart is located north of Bakersfield.

Killed – Thomas Edward Pulst (Great Falls, MT)

Thomas Edward Pulst

Authorities have identified the man who killed in a shoot-out with law enforcement officers in Great Falls on Wednesday as Thomas Edward Pulst.

GREAT FALLS – A 29-year-old man is dead after an officer-involved shooting at around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday in Great Falls.

The shooting happened in the 2700 block of Carmel Drive in the Fox Farm neighborhood when law enforcement officers from several agencies were trying to serve a warrant on the man.

GREAT FALLS – A coroner’s inquest has determined that law enforcement officers were justified in the deadly shooting last May of Thomas Edward Pulst.

Montana law states that a coroner’s inquest is conducted if law enforcement officers are involved in a shooting.

Because this incident involved Cascade County Sheriff’s deputies, Fergus County Coroner Richard Brown was called in for the inquest.

Officers were serving Pulst a federal warrant at a home on Carmel Drive in the Fox Farm neighborhood of Great Falls last May when Pulst reportedly fired a weapon at officers in the home from a closed room, and then ran out of the home with two handguns.

Killed – Alberto F. Valdes (Columbia County, FL)

male

The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office has released the name of the victim of Thursday’s officer involved shooting.  Authorities say he is 58-year old Alberto F. Valdes, of Lake City.  Valdes was shot and killed when deputies with the Columbia County Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force were conducting a narcotics investigation at 611 NW Bronco Terrace.

When deputies attempted to make contact with persons inside the home, Valdes exited the house armed with a shotgun.  After continually ordering Valdes to drop the weapon, he refused and fired the shotgun at the officers.  The Task Force deputies returned fire and killed him.

A search warrant was served at the same residence where the incident occurred, Thursday morning.

On Wednesday, May 8, 2013, deputies with the Columbia County Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force were involved in a life-threatening confrontation.

At approximately 11:50 p.m., Task Force deputies were conducting a narcotics investigation at 611 N.W. Bronco Terrace.

Killed – Kendra D. Diggs (Baltimore, MD)

Kendra D. Diggs

The incident started at about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday when two police officers were called to the home of Officer James Smith, a 20-year veteran of the force, after getting reports of an assault in the 1100 block of North Parrish Street.

According to charging documents, when the officers arrived, they heard a woman yell, “Help me,” so they forced open the front door. One of the officers went upstairs, while the other one escorted the woman, identified as Kendra Diggs, outside.

I-Team lead investigative reporter Jayne Miller said the documents showed as the officer and Diggs approached the sidewalk, a single gunshot was fired, and Diggs collapsed. Miller reported that SWAT teams were called in to move Diggs, which took some time.

Two Baltimore police officers arrived at a fellow officer’s home to investigate a reported domestic assault. They heard a woman inside calling for help, and when nobody answered the door, they kicked the door in and brought Kendra Diggs out.

James Smith, 49, ran upstairs as an officer implored him to come and talk. The other officer stood on the sidewalk next to Diggs, her face bleeding from a small wound. A shot rang out from a second-story window, authorities say. Diggs, shot in the head, hit the ground, and Smith and his fellow officers commenced a six-hour standoff.

Diggs left two children, Brandon, 20, and James Jr., 4. She had the younger boy with Smith, her cousin Sharifah Ahmed said. James Jr. was allowed to see family members Tuesday night but was placed in foster care overnight. Ahmed said Brandon is seeking custody of his younger brother.

Under the threat of more gunfire, emergency workers were unable to reach Diggs, who remained on the sidewalk. After about an hour, tactical officers were able to pick her up and take her to an ambulance. She was pronounced dead at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Killed – Carlos D. Oquendo (Leesburg, FL)

Carlos D. Oquendo1

LEESBURG, Fla. — Leesburg police have released more details on an officer-involved shooting that left one man dead Tuesday.

Carlos Oquendo, 23, was shot and killed following an attempted traffic stop in the area of Lucerne Circle and Euclid Street around 11 a.m. Tuesday.

According to police, Leesburg police officers James Dunagan and Gustavo Escalante were attempting to stop a Toyota driven by Oquendo when Oquendo began driving in an evasive fashion.

Police said when Oquendo turned onto Lucerne Circle, a street with no outlet, and stopped, the officers stepped from their vehicles and ordered Oquendo to get out of his car.

According to police, Oquendo put his car in reverse and drove rapidly toward Dunagan.  His car hit a tree and then struck Escalante’s patrol car.

Police said that Dunagan then fired his department issued firearm at Oquendo, hitting him at least once.

The two officers then called for Lake County Emergency Management Services and began performing first aid on Oquendo.

Oquendo was taken by helicopter to Orlando Regional Medical Center where he died.

Killed – Danny Valdes (Liberty City, FL)

male

Authorities have identified a 30-year-old Kendall man as the motorist shot and killed by Miami-Dade police officers this week during a Liberty City traffic stop.

Investigators believe Danny Valdes, on Tuesday just after 2 a.m., was driving a stolen Nissan in Liberty City when patrol officers ran the tag and tried pulling him over.

According to the Miami-Dade police union, Valdes refused to stop, leading them on a pursuit for more than 20 blocks.

When the car apparently died and came to a rolling stop near Northwest 59th Street and 35th Avenue, two officers got out on foot and demanded he exit. He refused, said Miami-Dade Police Benevolent Association President John Rivera.

At first, Valdes reached toward the glove compartment. The officer at the driver’s side window did not fire “because he could see his hands,” Rivera said.

But when Valdes reached under the car seat, the officer feared for his life, Rivera said.

“He was obviously not complying and he made some threatening comments to the officer and when he reached under the seat, the threat level kept escalating and the officer feared for his life and safety and fired,” Rivera said.

No weapon was found in the Nissan. A screwdriver, which may have been used to start or break into the stolen car, was found on the floorboard.

Killed – Male Teen – Tywon Jones (Chicago, IL)

Tywon Jones1

CHICAGO (CBS) – Chicago police shot and killed a teenager on a bike Sunday, after the boy began shooting randomly at people near the street in the North Lawndale neighborhood.

CBS 2′s Dana Kozlov reports it happened around 4 p.m. Sunday on the 1300 block of South Independence Boulevard. Witnesses described hearing more than two dozen gunshots, and seeing people running for cover before police arrived on the scene.

A police spokesperson said tactical officers happened to be driving on the other side of the boulevard when they heard the shots, saw the teen on the bike, and saw the gun in his hand. The officers made a U-turn, came up behind him, and when the teen started shooting at them, they shot back, hitting him.

The teen was pronounced dead a short time later at Mount Sinai Hospital. The boy was identified as 16-year-old Tywon Jones, of the 1600 block of South Hamlin Avenue, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Killed – Pedro Martinez Campos (San Diego, CA)

male

ESCONDIDO — A man shot to death when he charged at Escondido police with a large knife last weekend was identified by authorities Wednesday as Pedro Martinez Campos.

Police encountered Campos, 29, about 10:45 Saturday night, after a 911 call from a man near Washington Avenue and North Citrus Avenue who said he needed help.

Campos threatened to cut his own stomach, then walked toward the officers, who backed away hundreds of feet down nearby Trovita Court, police Lt. Neal Griffin said.

He refused to drop the knife, and officers used a Taser, but he continued forward, Griffin said. They shot Campos after he came within 10 feet and charged one of them.

The officers involved were Marco Fuentes, 42, a 20-year law enforcement veteran, and Patrick Hand, 34, a two-year veteran, the department said Wednesday.

Both officers are on paid administrative leave, which is routine department policy for officers involved in a shooting.

Killed – David Adam Patrick Maher (Atoka County, OK)

male

Saturday night (5/4/2013) at approximately 10 o’clock, the Atoka County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assist with an officer-involved shooting. An Oklahoma Department of Parks and Recreation park ranger shot and killed a man when the man attempted to run over the ranger.

Campers at McGee Creek State Park complained to a park ranger that a man was acting strangely and causing a disturbance. The ranger found David Adam Patrick Maher (d.o.b. 8/28/1982), the man identified by the campers, and attempted to get information from him. Maher would not cooperate and ran from the area to a parking lot where his vehicle was parked. He got inside his vehicle and attempted to run over the ranger. The ranger shot at Maher striking him at least one time. Maher was taken to the Atoka County Medical Center where he later died. Maher’s last known residence was in New York.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says around 10 p.m. on May 4th, the ranger got into an altercation with a man camping at the park.

Killed – Marquis Spencer (Orlando, FL)

Marquis Spencer

ORLANDO –
One suspect is dead, a second under arrest and a third under investigation after a massive manhunt overnight in Orange County.

Orlando police tried to pull over a car around 10 p.m. Friday near the intersection of Kirkman Road and Raleigh Street.

Instead of stopping, police said Marquis Spencer intentionally rammed the officer’s cruiser.

The 21-year-old then jumped out and took off, along with 21-year-old Ronmono Carson.

We’re told one of the suspects opened fire on the officers. Spencer was shot and killed when the officers fired back.

Carson was eventually captured in nearby woods and arrested.

The third person was detained for questioning but has not been charged.

Killed – Josiah Max Fischer (Scappoose, OR)

male

A 27-year-old St. Helens man led Oregon State Police troopers on a high-speed chase Friday that ended in gunfire — and his death — at a country crossroad north of Scappoose, Columbia County authorities reported on Saturday.

Troopers assigned to the St. Helens state police office attempted to stop Josiah Max Fischer for a traffic violation at 6:38 p.m. on Friday on U.S. 30. But Fischer, behind the wheel of a black 1997 Mitsubishi, drove westbound on U.S. 30 and two minutes later turned on Millard Road.

For the next four minutes, troopers Robin May and Justin Oxenrider — in separate patrol cars — chased Fischer as he made a series of turns at high speed on country lanes west of the highway. Fischer aimed the Mitsubishi down Hazen Road, in the community of Warren, where the auto skidded off the pavement at Stone Road.

At 6:44 p.m., county dispatchers heard reports, presumably by police, of shots fired.

ST. HELENS — A prosecutor says an Oregon state trooper was justified in firing at a 27-year-old St. Helens man who displayed a handgun after a high-speed chase.

Killed – Saan Pao Saeteurn (Suisun City, CA)

Saan Pao Saeteurn

Saan Pao Saeturn, 32, of Fairfield and Suisun City, was shot at the Suisun City Boat Ramp at 1250 Kellogg St. about 4:35 p.m. Thursday.

The man shot and killed by police on May 2, 2013 at the City of Suisun boat launch has been identified as Saan Pao Saeteurn, 32 years of age. Saeteurn has addresses in both the City of Fairfield and Suisun City. Information about Saeteurn has become available based upon many witness statements and background investigation. Saan Saeteurn had a lengthy criminal history including numerous arrests for theft, battery, possession of stolen property, possession of narcotics, resisting arrest and false impersonation. Saeteurn was on felony probation for arson at the time of the incident. Saeteurn also struggled with substance abuse and years of mental health treatment. In contacts with area law enforcement during the past few years, Saeteurn was volatile and combative.

Witnesses stated that Saeteurn had been using methamphetamine and alcohol prior to the shooting. Saeteurn has a history of heavy drug and alcohol use. Saeteurn had also recently been making statements to friends indicating he was suicidal, including asking others to help him end his life.

Saeteurn was contacted by police at the Suisun City Boat Launch on May 2, 2013 after receiving reports of a man with a gun. Police found Saeteurn armed with a rifle and was initially seated at a metal picnic table. Police attempted to negotiate with Saeteurn in an effort to separate Saeteurn from the rifle. Saeteurn was not complying with officers and made statements indicating he was suicidal to the officers. Saeteurn made numerous threats to officers during a period of over 14 minutes. The standoff concluded when Saeteurn threatened the officers with the rifle and was shot.

As a result of the shooting there are six officers on administrative leave. Following the shooting it was determined the rifle used by Saeteurn was a pellet gun manufactured to look like a rifle. The gun was seen with Saeteurn prior to the shooting by witnesses. These witnesses remarked that the gun was nearly indistinguishable from a real rifle without handling the gun.

SCHENECTADY – The man who stabbed another man and attempted to stab a Schenectady Police officer has been identified. Schenectady Police say 40-year-old Julio Colon was killed after Sgt. Darryl Mallard shot him three times in the chest. Mallard, who has been with the department since 2003, had to force his way into 3290 Balltown Road around 9 a.m. after responding to calls about a fight between two men. When he kicked in the door, Colon was holding a knife to another man’s chest who he had already stabbed once. Mallard ordered Colon to drop his weapon but Colon stabbed the victim again. Mallard fired one shot, hitting Colon in the chest.

Colon, 40, was shot three times in the chest Thursday by Sgt. Darryl Mallard as Colon held a knife on his already-bloodied boyfriend and then lunged at the officer, police said.

Killed – Ryan J. Koontz (Fort Wayne, IN)

Ryan J. Koontz2

Just days later at 8:22 a.m., May 2, the City of Fort Wayne Police Department responded to a home in the 7700 block of Weymouth Court reference a disturbance that resulted in a police action shooting. An adult male, later identified as 22-year-old Ryan J. Koontz, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Initial information received indicated that a resident at this home was under the influence of a mind- or mood-altering drugs and that he was behaving irrationally, and that he had access to a firearm. As the first responding officers attempted to make contact, Koontz reportedly fired shots inside the home and at the officers as they retreated for their safety. Koontz then gained access to a vehicle and pursued one of the officers into the front drive of a neighboring home. He then exited the vehicle and exchanged gunfire with that officer and the other officers on the scene. The suspect was fatally wounded. There were no physical injuries to the responding officers, and there were no injuries reported to any bystanders or residents in the neighborhood.

Because Koontz was firing indiscriminately, in multiple directions, neighboring homes were struck by gunfire; those homes became part of the investigation and also were processed by crime scene technicians. There were direct eyewitnesses to this incident who were transported to the police headquarters to be interviewed. There were four officers involved and they will be placed on administrative leave in accordance with departmental policy.

Killed – Jesse J. Vigil Jr. (Tularosa, NM)

Jesse J. Vigil Jr.

Eds: APNewsNow.
ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) – An Otero County grand jury has concluded police were justified in fatally shooting a 19-year-old man outside Tularosa Elementary School during a late-night encounter.

The Alamogordo Daily News reports that the decision was returned Wednesday in the death of Jesse Vigil of Tularosa on April 30.

The shooting occurred after a Tularosa police officer recognized Vigil while he was checking on the school during an electric blackout that was caused by a fire.

A State Police report says the officer believed Vigil had a warrant for his arrest and eventually stopped Vigil.

The report says the officer drew his gun after Vigil pulled out a .22-caliber rifle.

Rounds were fired between the officer, sheriff’s deputies and Vigil.

Authorities say the shooting happened outside the Tularosa Elementary School Tuesday night, but had nothing to do with the school. They say because of the investigation, the school will be closed Wednesday.

It’s uncertain when it will be presented because grand juries are conducted behind closed doors and are not open to the public or the media. Grand juries are convened to determine whether there’s enough evidence to hold a trial or, in this case, determine whether police were justified in fatally shooting Jesse Vigil, 19, of Tularosa, near Old Mescalero Road and First Street around 11:30 p.m. April 30.
