Triple Shooting – Killed – Donnieca Garcia (Gilford, MI)

Donnieca Garcia

REESE — The Thumb area is grieving after a tragic shooting incident Thursday, July 4, that left two Reese residents dead.

An investigation is continuing into the deaths of Donnieca Ann Garcia, 54, and her husband James Edward Garcia, 53, who died at their 9980 Van Geisen Road home.

According to a press release from Tuscola County prosecuting attorney Mark Reene, it was determined that Donnieca Garcia died of a single gunshot wound inflicted “some period of hours” before Tuscola County Sheriff deputies responded to a 911 call at the Van Geisen Road home.

Deputies responded at around 4:13 p.m. Thursday after a family member said they stopped at the home and confronted their father who stated the mother was dead on the floor.

According to an autopsy report, James Garcia died of gunshot wounds received after he opened fire on two Tuscola County Sheriff deputies and one officer from the Caro Police Department, all of whom responded to the scene.

One sheriff deputy was shot by Garcia in his protective vest and was treated and released from Covenant HealthCare in Saginaw. All three officers returned fire after the initial shot by Garcia struck the Sheriff’s deputy.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Bethany, IL)

male

DECATUR — Testimony at the inquest hearing of Denise Robertson, a Bethany woman who was killed during a shooting incident that also left her husband severely injured, indicated that the 51-year-old woman may have shot her 66-year-old husband in the chest before claiming her own life at the couple’s home.

Illinois State Police special agent Douglas LeConte testified Wednesday at the Macon County Courts Facility that at 8:32 a.m. July 4, Michael Robertson made a 911 call to report that he had awoken and was bleeding from the chest but was unaware of what had happened.

“According to interviews with Mr. Robertson, after waking up to the sound of two loud bangs and seeing that he was bleeding from the chest, he called out for his wife, Denise,” LeConte said. “He then looked over and saw her (Denise Robertson) at the side of his bed where he’d been sleeping, and she turned around and walked out of the bedroom without speaking to him or attempting to render any aid.”

Killed – Male Teen – Joshua Snapp (Richland, WA)

Joshua Snapp1

BENTON COUNTY, Wash. – As we first reported on keprtv.com, a young man from Richland is now a convicted killer. A jury convicted Josh Hunt in the death of his friend, Josh Snapp.

Josh Hunt never denied shooting his friend that day in the desert last summer. He cried on the stand remembering it all. A jury convicted him of second-degree murder.

KENNEWICK — Two shots into the desert were the only warning Josh Snapp got before he was told to start praying, then killed execution-style, court documents reveal.

The 17-year-old Richland boy went with his friends, Joshua H. Hunt and John C.I. Young, to a remote area near Horn Rapids Off-Road Vehicle Park believing they were going to smoke marijuana.

But Hunt and Young had other plans for the early morning hours of July 4.

Snapp was shot in the chest and the head, and Coroner John Hansens has said any of the wounds could have been fatal.

The two took several people home after the party. Hunt then called Snapp’s ex and they picked her up, along with Snapp. She wanted to cash a check but no stores were open, so the trio took her home some time between 4 and 5 a.m. Then they drove out to Beardsley Road.

Young claims they were smoking marijuana when Hunt confronted Snapp about talking to the police. Young got the gun out of the glove box, where he’d placed it during the party, and “fired the two rounds into the desert to show Snapp they meant business,” Hunt said when questioned by detectives.

Hunt then allegedly took the gun, told Snapp to start praying and shot him in the chest. Hunt said he gave the gun to Young and walked away, then heard another shot fired before they left together in his Cadillac, the affidavit says.

Young initially told officers that when Hunt took the gun, he shot the teen once in the chest and three times in the head, then handed it back to Young and they left. But after a detective relayed Hunt’s story to an officer with Young, he admitted firing a bullet into Snapp’s head, court documents said.

The men put the revolver back in the glove box and drove to Benton City to buy cigarettes at a Conoco gas station, with video surveillance showing Hunt going into the convenience store at 6:30 a.m., documents said. The two drove down the road to smoke the cigarettes, talk about what they’d say if contacted by police, swap out their shoes so the prints couldn’t be identified and place the shoes and gun in the car’s trunk.

Killed – Pregnant Woman – Baby Girl Harrison (San Antonio, TX)

Baby Girl Harrison

A 19-year-old woman was shot and killed inside her East San Antonio apartment early Thursday morning, and police are looking for any clues to help find her killer.

Shots were fired around 1:20 a.m. at an apartment complex on Gevers and E. Houston.

The victim’s 3-year-old daughter and boyfriend were inside the apartment at the time of the shooting, police said.

Family and friends want the shooter to know that whoever took her life, took a caring mother from a child.

SAN ANTONIO — Police are searching for a suspect in connection with the shooting death of a man on Wednesday.

The shooting happened around 1 p.m. in the 900 block of Canton, on the city’s east side.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said authorities are looking for a large white vehicle last seen leaving the area. However, SAPD said witnesses were not being very cooperative.

Several family members have been on the scene for hours, according to police. The family said the victim’s name was Stephon Jaumal Finnell.

Police have arrested a man in the slaying of Stephon Finnell, who was shot to death Sept. 4, two months after his pregnant girlfriend was killed.

Roderick Herron, 27, walked into the Police Department’s Public Safety Headquarters on Tuesday afternoon and turned himself in, officials said. Shortly after, he was taken to the magistrate’s office and booked on a murder charge.

Sgt. Javier Salazar, a police spokesman, said the amount of publicity that case received played a part in Herron coming forward. He had been named as a suspect last week, and his picture was widely circulated, including on the department’s Facebook page late Friday.

Finnell, 22, was gunned down on a front porch in the 900 block of Canton on the East Side, two months after the slaying of his girlfriend, Baby Girl Mshae Harrison, 19.

Killed – Che Cadfi Matoorah (Charlotte, NC)

male

A Charlotte man seriously wounded in a July 4 shooting died Wednesday, and the man arrested in the case now faces a murder charge, police say.

The case is unusual, because the victim and suspect didn’t know each other, detectives believe.

Jeremy Rossco Bishop, 23, now faces a murder charge in the death of Che Cadfi Matoorah, 29, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. Matoorah was shot in the early-morning hours on the Fourth of July and died Wednesday morning at Carolinas Medical Center.

Police say they were called about 1:10 a.m. July 4 to the 2200 block of The Plaza, where they found Matoorah suffering from a gunshot wound. A day later, Bishop was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

“Detectives believe that the victim and suspect got into an argument that led to the shooting,” Officer Keith Trietley, a CMPD spokesman, said in a statement. Trietley said investigators don’t think the two men knew one another. Police say that in most of CMPD’s homicide cases, the two parties know each other.

Killed – Alex Nguyen (Arlington, TX)

male

ARLINGTON — A brawl outside an east-side bar early Thursday turned deadly when a 31-year-old man firing into the crowd was fatally shot by an officer, Arlington police said.

Alex Nguyen of Fort Worth was pronounced dead in the parking lot of Saigon Nites, 2410 E. Arkansas Lane, at 1:06 a.m., according to the Tarrant County medical examiner.

The officer, who works traffic, pulled into the parking lot “just as a matter of routine patrol,” said Sgt. Christopher Cook, an Arlington police spokesman. As he entered the parking lot, he was flagged down by a security guard, who reported a disturbance.

Around the same time, a 911 caller reported a large fight at a local bar involving more than 20 people, Cook said.

When the officer got out of his vehicle, he saw a man firing into the crowd, Cook said.

“This led to a confrontation,” Cook said, and the officer shot Nguyen.

The officer, whose name was not released, has been placed on routine administrative leave with pay. The officer was not injured.

Update by Tanya Eiserer at noon: Alex Nguyen, 31, of Fort Worth, has been identified by the 1Tarrant County Medical Exminer as the man killed by police.

Original post at 8:29 a.m.: An Arlington police officer is on administrative leave with pay following a fatal shooting early this morning outside a nightclub.

According to police, just after 1 Thursday morning an officer with the Traffic Unit was on routine patrol when he pulled into the parking lot at 2400 E. Arkansas Lane, just off State Highway 360. Police say the officer was flagged down by an armed security guard who needed help dealing with a disturbance at the Star Saigon Bar and Grill, which had spilled into the parking lot. At the same time, police say, they received a 911 call concerning a fight at that very location involving more than 20 people — most or perhaps even all of whom may have arrived together, according to KTVT-Channel 11.

Killed – Guerline Noel (North Miami Beach, FL)

Guerline Noel

North Miami Beach Police detectives went door to door Friday, handing out flyers seeking information on the homicide of a 28-year-old mother in her home early Thursday.

Guerline Noel was shot to death after two robbers held her family hostage in the bathroom at gunpoint, according to her husband. Clauvens Cenor said he escaped through a window, but when he returned to their home at 250 NE 175th Terrace he found his wife dead.

The suspects did not cover their faces, but they were seen leaving the area on foot – which is why detectives were canvassing the area.

“If they’re leaving on foot, they’re not going to go a far distance, but many times there’s getaway cars. So we’re also looking at video as well, from surrounding businesses,” said North Miami Beach Police Major Kathy Katerman.

Police were called about the incident at 12:41 a.m. Thursday.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Paul W McCombs (Cragsmoor, NY)

Paul W McCombs

CRAGSMOOR, N.Y. — A woman killed her husband with two gunshots to the head and then died after taking pills, the Ulster County Sheriff’s Office said on Thursday.

Undersheriff Frank Faluotico said the case was being treated as a murder-suicide.

The Sheriff’s Office said deputies went to 40 Dellenbaugh Road in the Wawarsing hamlet of Cragsmoor at 7:32 p.m. Wednesday after being told neither Paul W. McCombs, 62, nor Sharon K. McCombs, 61, had been heard from in more than 24 hours.

Faluotico said a family member who was not in the area asked authorities to check on the McCombs. He said the couple lived alone and were found dead in a rear bedroom of the single-story, ranch-style home.

The preliminary investigation, according to a Sheriff’s Office report, found Mrs. McCombs shot her husband twice in the head with a small-caliber handgun and then died after ingesting an undetermined amount of prescription medication.

Triple Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Woman (Calais, ME)

female

CALAIS — Maine’s attorney general says it was reasonable for two police officers to believe they had to use deadly force in a July domestic violence-related shooting in Calais.

Police shot 26-year-old Daniel Pinney shortly after arriving at his home on July 3. They said Pinney had shot 21-year-old Megan Sherrard and their 6-week-old son, Luca. The woman was fleeing with her son.

Pinney later died; an autopsy showed he was struck twice in the chest and once in the arm by bullets fired from one of the officers, but that he actually killed himself, firing a gun at his head.

Sherrard and the baby recovered from their wounds.

CALAIS, Maine (AP) — State police said a shooting in the eastern Maine town of Calais left one man dead and a woman and baby wounded.

Police said the shooting Wednesday evening was an act of domestic violence.

Police said officers shot and killed 26-year-old Daniel Pinney shortly after arriving at a home on Main Street. They said Pinney had shot 21-year-old Megan Sherrard and their 6-week-old son, Luca.

Sherrard is undergoing treatment for serious gunshot wounds at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. The baby also was being treated for a gunshot wound to the foot.

A police officer was grazed by a bullet but is expected to make a full recovery.

Triple Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Baby (Calais, ME)

male

CALAIS — Maine’s attorney general says it was reasonable for two police officers to believe they had to use deadly force in a July domestic violence-related shooting in Calais.

Police shot 26-year-old Daniel Pinney shortly after arriving at his home on July 3. They said Pinney had shot 21-year-old Megan Sherrard and their 6-week-old son, Luca. The woman was fleeing with her son.

Pinney later died; an autopsy showed he was struck twice in the chest and once in the arm by bullets fired from one of the officers, but that he actually killed himself, firing a gun at his head.

Sherrard and the baby recovered from their wounds.

CALAIS, Maine (AP) — State police said a shooting in the eastern Maine town of Calais left one man dead and a woman and baby wounded.

Police said the shooting Wednesday evening was an act of domestic violence.

Police said officers shot and killed 26-year-old Daniel Pinney shortly after arriving at a home on Main Street. They said Pinney had shot 21-year-old Megan Sherrard and their 6-week-old son, Luca.

Sherrard is undergoing treatment for serious gunshot wounds at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. The baby also was being treated for a gunshot wound to the foot.

A police officer was grazed by a bullet but is expected to make a full recovery.

State police and the Maine attorney general’s office are investigating the shooting.

Murder/Suicide – Dominic Moses Moore (Denver, CO)

Dominic Moses Moore

Denver police were relieved to find three children who were reported missing Wednesday safe from harm, but they were still trying to learn why a man killed his wife before turning the gun on himself.

Officers called to the Green Valley Ranch home at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday found the man’s wife dead and the children, who should have been there, missing.

The man was also gone, fleeing police in a white 2000 Chrysler Cirrus.

Denver police said that information prompted them to issue an Amber Alert for the children, ages 15, 5 and 18 months, about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.

They abandoned the alert at about 7 a.m. after the children were found safe and the man, identified as Dominic Moses Moore, 32, was discovered dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside the Chrysler near Franktown.

The Denver medical examiner’s office did not release the woman’s name or cause of death, but police said she was Moore’s wife. Detectives were still trying to unravel the couple’s relationship to the children but said they all lived together.

DENVER – The mother found dead on Tuesday night, sparking an AMBER Alert, died from multiple injuries due to an assault, according to the Denver coroner.

Double Shooting – Killed – Joseph Puopolo (Stoneham, MA)

Joseph Puopolo1

STONEHAM (CBS) – Two men were arrested Sunday on murder charges in connection with a Stoneham double shooting that killed one man and injured another, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Stoneham Police Chief James McIntyre said in a prepared statement.

Jessie Williams, 24, of Medford, and Eugene Tate, 19, of Malden, were arrested Sunday and charged with murder, armed assault with intent to murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, armed robbery, and illegal possession of a firearm.

Williams and Tate face arraignment Monday in Woburn District Court.

According to authorities, at about 12:19 a.m. on Wednesday, Stoneham Police were dispatched to a home at 6 Micah’s Pond Way in Stoneham for a report of gunshots.
When officers arrived, they found two men suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. One of those men, Joseph Puopolo, 27, was found suffering from gunshot wounds to the chest and wrist. He was taken to Leahy Clinic, where he was pronounced deceased. The second victim, a 28-year-old man, suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

An investigation by Stoneham Police and Massachusetts State Police assigned to the DA’s office revealed that the 28-year-old victim arranged to sell drugs to Williams and Tate through known associates. It is alleged that prior to arrival of the pair, the 28-year-old victim asked Puopolo to come to the home because he was concerned the proposed deal may be a drug rip-off.

It is alleged that Williams and Tate entered the home shortly after midnight to complete a drug deal. When they entered the home, the two defendants allegedly drew handguns, demanded drugs and money, then shot Puopolo and the 28-year-old victim, Ryan and McIntyre said.
