5 #Gunsense New Year Resolutions

Some of you reading this will have been fighting for #gunsense and commonsense gun laws for some time. Some will have just joined the fight. Welcome to everyone.

Some of you will have always been ‘political’. For some of you this will be the first time you’re getting directly involved in a political movement. We are all cynical about politicians and Congress, but something has made you take that decision to say “I MUST ACT”.

Perhaps the 6-year-olds murdered at Newtown was your defining moment. Perhaps you or a loved one have been directly affected by gun violence. Perhaps you are fed up with people telling you that thousands and thousands of Americans dying each year is just “collateral damage” and a “new normal”. Perhaps you are a gun owner who knows that commonsense regulation is needed and are fed up with the NRA’s extremist stance.

You are right not to accept this situation. You are right to no longer stay silent. You are right to take action. You are right to push your politicians.

Without you, the field is left to the special interests and lobbying firms of the gun industry.

Without you, the field is left to those who spread misinformation, fear and paranoia with the sole purpose of making more money from selling guns to whomever they can get away with.

Without you, more children and teenagers will die needlessly.

Without you, more children will cower in lockdown bathrooms, terrified as they cram themselves in during a living nightmare.

Without you, more women will be subjected to deadly domestic abuse.

Without you, America will continue to head to a very dark place.

But with you, things CAN and WILL change for the better.

Make THIS YEAR the year when you take real and meaningful action.

Here are 5 #Gunsense New Year Resolutions – how many can you commit to and follow through on?

  1. I will contact my Senator(s) and State Senator(s) at least THREE times this year and demand that they support commonsense gun laws (such as the “Big Ten”).
  2. I will engage at least THREE friends or family members who currently do not support commonsense gun laws but who I think can be persuaded when given the facts.
  3. I will make a financial contribution this year to an organization lobbying for commonsense gun laws (Unfortunately money really does matter when pushing politicians).
  4. If I have children, I will ask THREE fellow families if they have guns in the home and, if so, how they are stored.
  5. I will encourage at least FIVE friends or acquaintances to take meaningful action this year (either by telling them about my actions or sharing these #gunsense resolutions).

These resolutions are all real and effective steps you can take this year to Continue reading

TAKE ACTION – How YOU Can Push For The ” Big Ten” Gun Safety Measures

quote1a

TAKE ACTION:

The only way our laws will change is if people like YOU put pressure on our politicians in the U.S. Congress and State Senates.

Follow these simple steps:

Step 1) Find out who your US Senators and Representative are at http://www.opencongress.org/people/zipcodelookup

Step 2) Find out who your State Senator is from the State Senate website in your state.

Step 3) If possible, coordinate with your neighbors and friends in the area and all make contact on the same day or in the same week.

Step 4) Call, email and/or write to each of your representatives and ask which of the “Big Ten” gun safety measures they support:

  1. Do you support universal background checks, including in private sales? If not, why not?
  2. Do you support an assault weapons ban? If not, why not?
  3. Do you support mandatory child safety locks on all guns? If not, why not?
  4. Do you support mandatory safe gun storage laws, particularly if a household contains a minor or person adjudicated mentally ill? If not, why not?
  5. Do you support repealing the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which prevents victims from holding the gun industry to account? If not, why not?
  6. Do you support limiting magazine sizes to ensure law enforcement are not outgunned? If not, why not?
  7. Do you support mandatory duty of states to report persons with mental health issues to the Federal background check system? If not, why not?
  8. Do you support mandatory liability insurance for all gun owners? If not, why not?
  9. Do you support mandatory reporting by gun owners of lost or stolen guns? If not, why not?
  10. Do you support Smart Gun technology to ensure only approved adults can fire a weapon, as soon as the technology is state-of-the-art? If not, why not?

Step 5) Note down the answers you receive, share them with people in your area and, if possible, publish them to the web. Use #gunsense if posting to Twitter.

Step 6) Attend in-person meetings with your representatives and demand that they support these commonsense gun safety measures.

Thanks for reading and keep working for commonsense gun laws in America.

Every single minute you commit to this fight will prevent more Americans from experiencing that terrifying minute when gun violence erupts.

Double Murder/Suicide – Dead – Ricky Junior Toney (Louisburg, NC)

Ricky Junior Toney3

A preliminary autopsy report suggests that Ricky Junior Toney, one of the suspects in a Dec. 31 double homicide in Franklin County, died of a self-inflicted wound, according to Warren County Sheriff Johnny Williams.

Toney, 34, and his brother, Joey Lamont Kearney, 16, both of Franklin County, led law enforcement officers on a manhunt that covered areas of Franklin and Vance counties before ending in southwestern Warren County.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office was called to a residence on West River Road in Franklinton at 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 31 to the scene of what was believed to be a domestic dispute. According to the sheriff office’s report, there was no answer at the door when deputies arrived. Deputies were able to enter the residence through an unsecured door and found broken glass on the bedroom floor, blood pooling at the base of the bathroom door, and a mirror in the bathroom that appeared to have been shattered by a gunshot.

According to the report, the bodies of a woman and her teenage daughter were found in the bathroom. They later were identified as Akesia Michelle Toney, 37, Ricky Junior Toney’s estranged wife, and Brianna Nicole Jones, 16.

Deputies say the teen helped Toney killed his 37-year-old estranged wife and her 16-year-old daughter at their home in Louisburg early Tuesday morning. The chase started several hours later when Vance County deputies say they spotted Toney in his dead wife’s car.

Killed – Sierra Landry (Lancaster, SC)

Sierra Landry1

Murder/Suicide – Dead – Michael Penrose (Parke County, IL)

male

DANVILLE — Investigations into the death of an area woman continue after her body was found in her home late Sunday evening.

The Vermilion County Sheriff’s Department was called just before 9 p.m. Sunday to the home of Jamie L. Sternberger, 40, along Greenwood Cemetery Road.

Capt. Rod Kaag, chief investigator for the sheriff’s department, said Sternberger was found dead inside the residence with initial indications of gunshot wounds.

ANVILLE, Ill. (AP) – Authorities in east central Illinois say a man found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Parke County, Indiana, was a suspect in the murder of a 40-year-old Illinois woman.

The woman, Jamie L. Sternberger, was found fatally shot Sunday in her mobile home near Danville. Her vehicle was found Sunday in Indiana at an undisclosed spot where 43-year-old Michael Penrose is believed to have committed suicide.

Chief Deputy Bill Todd of the Parke County, Indiana, sheriff’s office says Penrose may have been living with Sternberger for about six months at her home outside of Danville where her body was found.

Capt. Rod Kaag of the Vermilion County sheriff’s department tells The (Champaign) News-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1cla9tu ) investigators consider Penrose the only suspect in the murder.

However, Chief Deputy Bill Todd with the Parke County, Ind., Sheriff’s Office said his department is working through its official identification confirmation process, but they believe that it was the body of Michael Penrose, 43, that was found at 5:38 p.m. Sunday at an undisclosed location in Parke County, Ind.

Todd said they believe Mr. Penrose was the victim of a single self-inflicted gunshot wound. He said they have linked Mr. Penrose to a rural address near Rockville, Ind., but believe he had been living temporarily with Ms. Sternberger for the last six months at her mobile home.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Latalia Robinson (Marion, FL)

Latalia Robinson

Marion County Sheriff’s Office detectives confirmed Tuesday that the couple found dead inside a Dunnellon-area home on Sunday were the victims of a murder/suicide and that the woman had been shot multiple times.

Latalia Robinson, 32, was shot with a Taurus .40-caliber handgun that belonged to her husband, Dean Hamilton, according to the man’s friend.

The friend also told detectives Mark Peavy and Felix Rodriguez that the 33-year-old Hamilton, the woman’s estranged husband, usually kept the firearm in his vehicle. He later turned the gun on himself, officials said.

The woman was discovered in the bed, while her husband was found close by.

Three children — a boy and two girls, ages 11, 8 and 7 — discovered the bodies inside the bedroom. The kids have been referred to counseling, authorities said.

Officials said the boy was from a previous relationship and was Robinson’s son. Her two daughters were with Hamilton, officials said. Robinson was a biology teacher at West Port High School.

“This is a clear-cut case of domestic violence that ended tragically, and now three children are without their mother and father,” said Maj. Tommy Bibb, head of the Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit.

Court records show one of them filed fordivorce on November 26, 2013. Robinson was a biology teacher at West Port High School in Ocala. According to her Facebook page she started working here this year.

Killed – Sheena Green (Henrico County, VA)

Sheena Green

A Henrico County woman who was fatally wounded Sunday in Richmond had sought a protective order last week against the suspect in her death, claiming he had threatened to kill her.

The woman, Sheena Green, 26, requested a protective order Dec. 23 against Corenzo Laroscoe Hill, the father of her two children, according to court records in Henrico Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.

That day, Green wrote in an affidavit for the protective order that Hill kept “putting his hands on me and saying he’s going to kill me. This is not the first time this done happened.”

But Green’s petition for the protective order was dismissed because she failed to appear that day at a preliminary protective order hearing, according to court records.

Green was found about 5:30 a.m. Sunday lying on the ground in a wooded area in the 2700 block of Richmond-Henrico Turnpike in the city’s North Side.

She had been shot, run over by a vehicle and left for dead, according to a source familiar with the case.

She was taken to VCU Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

A Henrico County man who left the mother of his two children bleeding from gunshot wounds and then ran over her with her car will serve 26 years in prison.

Corenzo Hill, 31, of the 3700 block of Conway Street, entered a no-contest plea Tuesday morning in Richmond Circuit Court to second-degree murder as part of an agreement that resolves a brutal murder preceded by issues of domestic violence. Hill had been indicted on first-degree murder, abduction and firearms charges and faced a life sentence.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – April Everts-Hampton (Simi Valley, CA)

April Everts-Hampton1

A 42-year-old Simi Valley man shot and killed his wife before turning the gun on himself this weekend, police said Tuesday.

The couple’s four children were home at the time of the shooting, but were unharmed, police said.

Investigators said Jason Hampton killed his wife, 30-year-old April Evert-Hampton, in their home at 2440 E. Woodrow Ave. Saturday afternoon before shooting himself with a handgun.

Evert-Hampton was declared dead at the scene shortly after police arrived at just before 2 p.m. Jason Hampton was transported to a local hospital in critical condition, and later died from his injuries.

April Everts-Hampton, 30, and Jason Hampton, 42, were found in a home in a cul-de-sac in the 2400 block of Woodrow Avenue at about 1:40 p.m. Saturday.

During the investigation, it was determined that four children were living at the residence. Livingstone said detectives at the scene believe the children were not in the home when the shootings occurred.

On December 28 at 1:38 PM, Simi Valley Police Department Officers responded to an “unknown trouble” call at 2440 E. Woodrow Ave. Upon arriving, officers discovered a male and female adult inside the residence with gunshot wounds. The female was deceased and the male was gravely wounded with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The male was transported to an area hospital where he subsequently died as a result of his wounds. A handgun was recovered at the scene. There were four children residing at the location that were unharmed and are presently under the supervision of a case worker from Ventura County Child Protective Services pending the identification and notification of family members. The Police Department would like to commend and thank those area residents who willingly provided shelter and assistance to the four children while waiting for the arrival of Child Protective Services.

Update 12/31/13, 1445: The two decedents, Jason Hampton, 42 years and April Everts-Hampton, 30 years were married. During the subsequent investigation, a determination was made that Jason was responsible for April’s death and then killed himself. Detectives have still not established a motive for this tragic crime.

Murder/Suicide – Dead – Jason Hampton (Simi Valley, CA)

Jason Hampton

A 42-year-old Simi Valley man shot and killed his wife before turning the gun on himself this weekend, police said Tuesday.

The couple’s four children were home at the time of the shooting, but were unharmed, police said.

Investigators said Jason Hampton killed his wife, 30-year-old April Evert-Hampton, in their home at 2440 E. Woodrow Ave. Saturday afternoon before shooting himself with a handgun.

Evert-Hampton was declared dead at the scene shortly after police arrived at just before 2 p.m. Jason Hampton was transported to a local hospital in critical condition, and later died from his injuries.

April Everts-Hampton, 30, and Jason Hampton, 42, were found in a home in a cul-de-sac in the 2400 block of Woodrow Avenue at about 1:40 p.m. Saturday.

During the investigation, it was determined that four children were living at the residence. Livingstone said detectives at the scene believe the children were not in the home when the shootings occurred.

On December 28 at 1:38 PM, Simi Valley Police Department Officers responded to an “unknown trouble” call at 2440 E. Woodrow Ave. Upon arriving, officers discovered a male and female adult inside the residence with gunshot wounds. The female was deceased and the male was gravely wounded with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The male was transported to an area hospital where he subsequently died as a result of his wounds. A handgun was recovered at the scene. There were four children residing at the location that were unharmed and are presently under the supervision of a case worker from Ventura County Child Protective Services pending the identification and notification of family members. The Police Department would like to commend and thank those area residents who willingly provided shelter and assistance to the four children while waiting for the arrival of Child Protective Services.

Update 12/31/13, 1445: The two decedents, Jason Hampton, 42 years and April Everts-Hampton, 30 years were married. During the subsequent investigation, a determination was made that Jason was responsible for April’s death and then killed himself. Detectives have still not established a motive for this tragic crime.

Double Murder – Killed – Luann Storey (Lincoln, AL)

female

LINCOLN, Alabama — Police are investigating a double homicide after two people were found shot Saturday, according to The Daily Home.

Deonte Strown, 27, was found dead in the driveway of a home on Roberson Road after officers were called to a report of shots fired around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, police told the newspaper.

Luann Storey, 46, died at a hospital after she was taken by a private vehicle.

A Talladega County jury of eight women and four men spent just under two hours deliberating Tuesday before finding Jonathon Virgil Davis, 24, of Lincoln, guilty of attempted murder and shooting into an occupied dwelling.

Davis now faces 20 to 99 years or life in prison on the attempted murder charge.
According to Assistant District Attorney Christina Kilgore, Davis will be sentenced Sept. 15 by Talladega County Circuit Judge Julian King.

Davis was charged following a series of events Dec. 28, 2013, that resulted in the deaths of two people: Deonte “Tae-Tae” Strown, 27, and Luanne “Belle” Story, 47.

Davis’s victim in the attempted murder case was Strown’s brother, Brandon “Bam-Bam” Strown, who was involved in a relationship with Story’s daughter, LaShekia Knight, at the time of the incident.
Knight’s sister, Diamond Knight, had a child in common with Deonte Strown.

Story also had a son, James “Lil James” Knight, who was a witness, along with Antonio “Jarue” Tanner.

On Dec. 28, 2013, Bam-Bam had his cousin, Shawn Collins, drop him off at LaShekia Knight’s apartment at Talladega Downs. Strown and Knight argued, and he left.

Davis is not related to any of the Knights, but said he had known them since he was a child and considers the two daughters his sisters.

Shortly after the exchange at Talladega Downs, Davis went to Brandon Strown’s apartment on Shocco Springs Road. He only found Collins and told him that he planned to kill Strown for putting his hands on “his sister.”

Collins testified that Davis also showed him a gun.

At this point, Davis drove to pick up Story, who had come down from Gadsden to get her grandchild, who had gone to stay with the Strown family after Christmas.

The rest of the day’s events took place at the Strowns’ grandparents’ house on Roberson Road in Lincoln. Story demanded her grandchild, who was not there. She went into the house briefly, then came out again, and was locked out.

The brothers had heard the commotion and came around. Brandon got a shotgun from the garage, which Deonte took from him. What happened next was disputed.

According to the state’s version of events, Story and Deonte Strown fought over the shotgun, which went off and struck Story in the gut. She later died of her wounds.

Davis then shot Deonte Strown, knocking him down but not killing him.

Then Davis began shooting at Brandon Strown, who was unarmed and trying to make his way back into his grandparents’ house. He eventually made it, and Davis shot at him again when he was “peeping around the front door.”

At this point, Deonte Strown tried to sit up and move toward the shotgun before being fatally shot in the head by Davis.

Killed – Anderous Reid (Nashville, TN)

Anderous Reid

The couple involved in a fatal shooting Saturday at a Bellevue apartment complex had a lengthy history of violence.

Jessica Cothon, 29, shot the father of her two children after she says he physically attacked her about 4 a.m. at the Hallmark of Bellevue Apartments on River Road.

Anderous Reid, 39, died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Cothon hasn’t been charged in connection with Reid’s death, and Metro police say this is one of those cases where a grand jury will likely decide whether to prosecute.

Anderous Reid, 39, was shot at approximately 3:30 a.m. by Jessica Cothon, 29.

West Precinct detectives are continuing to investigate a West Nashville woman’s report that she fatally wounded her boyfriend in self-defense during an overnight domestic-related fight inside their River Road apartment.

Anderous Reid, 39, was shot at approximately 3:30 a.m. by Jessica Cothon, 29. Also home at the time were the couple’s two children (three-year-old girl and six-year-old boy), Cothon’s 11-year-old daughter, and Cothon’s mother. Police department counselors responded to assist the children.

Cothon was fully cooperative with detectives and said that Reid was physically attacking her in a bedroom when she retrieved her pistol and fired. Reid was hit in the midsection and died at the scene. No charges are being placed against Cothon at present. The case file, as a matter of routine, will be sent to the District Attorney’s Office for review at the conclusion of the investigation.

Killed – Mickey Lobdell (Nodaway County, KS)

male

A little after 11 p.m., the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Department, and state troopers, responded to a domestic dispute that left a Kansas man dead.

“The caller said that there had been some sort of altercation at the home. That they needed a deputy and an ambulance because someone had been shot,” said Sheriff Darren White.

At least a dozen family members gathered at 10197 Icon Road, just northwest of Hopkins, for a family function.

Alcohol was involved.

Sheriff Darren White, with the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Department, said 34-year old Mickey Lobdell, was very drunk and began making threats toward his uncle, 51-year-old Lewis Schrodt.

(MARYVILLE, Mo.) Nodaway County Prosecutor Robert Rice will not file charges against a man after he shot and killed a relative this past December.

Lewis Schrodt shot Mickey Lobdell in the chest after a domestic dispute near Clearmont, Mo. in December 2013. Lobdell later died.

“Missouri’s self-defense and castle doctrine is clear,” Rice said in a statement. “You have a right to defend yourself on your property against death or serious physical injury. In this case, Mr. Schrodt acted within his legal right and defended himself.”

According to a release from Rice, Schrodt was defending himself and fired two warning shots before firing the fatal shot. According to Rice’s statment, Lobdell had been drinking and Schrodt, who suffers from physical disabilites, felt threatened by Lobdell who was threatening and approaching Schrodt when he was shot.

Rice also said Lobdel had outstanding warrants in Kansas and had a history of criminal convictions.

According to Nodaway County Sheriff Darren White, Lobdell was Schrodt’s nephew. The shooting happened during a family gathering.

The St. Joseph News-Press (http://bit.ly/1cxdD0v) reports that 34-year-old Mickey Lobdell of Manchester, Kan., was killed Friday night near the town of Hopkins.

Killed – Flint Wilkey (Houston, TX)

male

A Liberty County man fatally shot his adult son after a family argument turned violent, authorities said late Friday.

Liberty County sheriff’s deputies said Billy Wilkey, 67, admitted shooting his son, Flint Wilkey, 35, shortly after 2 p.m. Friday at his home in the 700 block of County Road 2061 near Hardin.

The elder Wilkey was waiting in the front yard of the home when sheriff’s deputies arrived.
Sheriff’s officials said Flint Wilkey had been arguing with his wife earlier that day at their nearby home. She went to Billy Wilkey’s home to avoid further conflict with her husband but he followed her there and continued the quarrel, authorities said.

Deputies said Flint Wilkey went inside his father’s home and began hitting his wife and pulling her hair. He pulled her from the house and tried to force her into his truck; she was struggling and trying to protect herself, deputies said.

Billy Wilkey told deputies his son turned on him when he tried to stop him from attacking his wife. He then fired a single shot from a pistol, killing his son, authorities said.

Killed – Aubert Gholston (Oakland, CA)

male

A 26-year-old man was fatally shot Friday morning while driving a car in West Oakland.

Aubert Gholston was shot about 11:15 a.m. inside the moving Chevrolet, which crashed into a light pole outside Prescott Elementary School, authorities said. The school, at 920 Campbell St., was not in session when the shooting occurred.

OAKLAND — Murder charges have been filed against a man suspected of fatally shooting an acquaintance last December in West Oakland in a dispute over a woman, authorities said Thursday.

Investigators said video surveillance in the area recovered by police played a key role in identifying the suspect, Lyle “Jersey” Johnson, also known as Isiah Lowery, 23. He was arrested in Las Vegas June 26 by U.S. Marshals.

Johnson is charged with the Dec. 27, 2013 fatal shooing of Aubert Gholston, 26. Besides the murder count he is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon. He has a prior 2009 drug conviction, authorities said.

Officer Jason Andersen said the two men knew each other and were having a dispute over a woman they both knew who was close to Gholston. Andersen said that on the day of the killing, Johnson was in a liquor store in the 1600 block of Eighth Street when he saw Gholston park his car across the street. He went to the car and confronted Gholston, who was inside the vehicle. After and argument, Johnson shot Gholston, Andersen said.

Gholston was able to drive away but crashed in the 900 block of Campbell Street and died at the scene.

Killed – Jernale Richardson (Chicago, IL)

male

Jernale Richardson was found shot to death in the Austin neighborhood early Friday.

Richardson, 36, was found about 3:50 a.m. in the 5900 block of West Midway Park with gunshot wounds to the chest and head, authorities said.

Richardson, of the 5100 block of West Ohio Street, was dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Area North detectives are investigating.

An Austin neighborhood man has been charged with first-degree murder after prosecutors said he shot and killed the father of his girlfriend’s child.

Shaughnessy Simms Jr., 31, of the 5900 block of West Midway Park, was ordered held without bail Sunday by Cook County Judge James Brown.

Assistant State’s Attorney Kingsley Sawyers said Simms and his girlfriend began to argue Friday at Simms’ home because he’d been dating other women. The argument went on for a couple of hours, Sawyers said.

Eventually he said the girlfriend went to her room and got on the phone, speaking to Jermane Richardson, the father of her 7-year-old child.

Richardson showed up at the residence 45 minutes later and knocked on the door, the prosecutor said. Simm’s girlfriend came out of her room to speak to Richardson, who was at the bottom of a set of stairs.

A witness later saw Simms come out of his room with a “big gun,” Sawyers said, and he began to argue with Richardson as the girlfriend tried to intervene.

Eventually Richardson began to walk up the stairs toward Simms, Sawyers said, but Simms shot him once in the arm. Then, after Richardson fell to the ground in a seated position, the prosecutor said Simms stood over him and shot him two more times, once in the head.

Mass Murder/Suicide – Dead – Ben Freeman (Houma, LA)

Ben Freeman

A Houma man killed four, including himself, and injured three others in a shooting rampage across Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes Thursday, according to police.

The dead are Milton Bourgeois, longtime CEO at Ochsner St. Anne General Hospital in Raceland; Susan “Pixie” Gouaux, wife of Lafourche Parish Councilman Phillip Gouaux; the suspected shooter, 38-year-old Ben Edward Freeman; and his wife Denise Taylor Freeman.

Councilman Gouaux, his daughter Andrea and Bourgeois’ wife Ann were also shot, but had survived as Friday morning.

Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s deputies found Ben Freeman dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside his SUV on U.S. 90 near Bayou Blue hours after the shooting.

According to Sheriff Craig Webre, sometime before 6:40 p.m. Thursday, Freeman entered Councilman Gouaux’s residence on Hyland Drive in Lockport. Freeman was divorced from Gouaux’s daughter Jeanne, who was not at the home.

Once inside, police believe the shotgun-wielding gunman shot Phillip Gouaux in the throat, killed Gouaux’s wife and shot his other daughter Andrea.

The councilman was able to make the initial 911 call before he was rushed with Andrea to University Hospital in New Orleans. They are listed in critical, but stable condition.

Immediately after, Freeman drove some 15 miles north to Raceland and the home of Bourgeois on the 2900 block of La. 308. Bourgeois was the CEO of St. Anne General Hospital since 1988 where Freeman worked as a registered nurse before being terminated in 2011, according to Webre.

Inside the Bourgeois residence, police said Freeman killed Bourgeois with a close range shotgun blast. Bourgeois’s wife Ann was also shot in the leg and is listed in stable condition.

Three hospitals where Freeman worked in years past, Terrebonne General Medical Center, Thibodaux Regional Medical Center and Ochsner St. Anne General Hospital, were on lockdown while officers searched for Freeman.

Parked along U.S. 90 sometime before 10:20 p.m., Freeman shot himself in the head with the same shotgun used in the slayings, police said.

The search for Freeman led authorities to his Houma home, where they found his wife, Denise Taylor Freeman, dead in the bathtub, Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said. Her cause of death hasn’t been determined, but Freeman is suspected of killing her as well.

Webre described a “difficult” custody conflict between Ben Freeman and Phillip Gouaux’s daughter. He noted Freeman was mandated by a court to have supervised visits with the four children he fathered with the daughter.

Freeman has also plead guilty to harassment charges and had multiple protective orders filed by his ex-wife, according to Webre. The last of those orders expired less than a month ago.

“Clearly, there has been a very difficult and complicated divorce/custody issue going on,” Webre said in a late-night news conference Thursday.

The Jefferson Parish Coroner ruled the cause of death was asphyxia (strangulation) due to suffocation and drowning for Denise Freeman. Authorities believe she was the first victim killed.

Mass Shooting – Killed – Susan Gouaux (Houma, LA)

Susan Gouaux

A Houma man killed four, including himself, and injured three others in a shooting rampage across Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes Thursday, according to police.

The dead are Milton Bourgeois, longtime CEO at Ochsner St. Anne General Hospital in Raceland; Susan “Pixie” Gouaux, wife of Lafourche Parish Councilman Phillip Gouaux; the suspected shooter, 38-year-old Ben Edward Freeman; and his wife Denise Taylor Freeman.

Councilman Gouaux, his daughter Andrea and Bourgeois’ wife Ann were also shot, but had survived as Friday morning.

Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s deputies found Ben Freeman dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside his SUV on U.S. 90 near Bayou Blue hours after the shooting.

According to Sheriff Craig Webre, sometime before 6:40 p.m. Thursday, Freeman entered Councilman Gouaux’s residence on Hyland Drive in Lockport. Freeman was divorced from Gouaux’s daughter Jeanne, who was not at the home.

Once inside, police believe the shotgun-wielding gunman shot Phillip Gouaux in the throat, killed Gouaux’s wife and shot his other daughter Andrea.

The councilman was able to make the initial 911 call before he was rushed with Andrea to University Hospital in New Orleans. They are listed in critical, but stable condition.

Immediately after, Freeman drove some 15 miles north to Raceland and the home of Bourgeois on the 2900 block of La. 308. Bourgeois was the CEO of St. Anne General Hospital since 1988 where Freeman worked as a registered nurse before being terminated in 2011, according to Webre.

Inside the Bourgeois residence, police said Freeman killed Bourgeois with a close range shotgun blast. Bourgeois’s wife Ann was also shot in the leg and is listed in stable condition.

Three hospitals where Freeman worked in years past, Terrebonne General Medical Center, Thibodaux Regional Medical Center and Ochsner St. Anne General Hospital, were on lockdown while officers searched for Freeman.

Parked along U.S. 90 sometime before 10:20 p.m., Freeman shot himself in the head with the same shotgun used in the slayings, police said.

The search for Freeman led authorities to his Houma home, where they found his wife, Denise Taylor Freeman, dead in the bathtub, Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said. Her cause of death hasn’t been determined, but Freeman is suspected of killing her as well.

Webre described a “difficult” custody conflict between Ben Freeman and Phillip Gouaux’s daughter. He noted Freeman was mandated by a court to have supervised visits with the four children he fathered with the daughter.

Freeman has also plead guilty to harassment charges and had multiple protective orders filed by his ex-wife, according to Webre. The last of those orders expired less than a month ago.

“Clearly, there has been a very difficult and complicated divorce/custody issue going on,” Webre said in a late-night news conference Thursday.

The Jefferson Parish Coroner ruled the cause of death was asphyxia (strangulation) due to suffocation and drowning for Denise Freeman. Authorities believe she was the first victim killed.

Killed – Shawn Moore (Brooksville, FL)

male

BROOKSVILLE — A lengthy history of unreported domestic abuse preceded the death of Brooksville contractor Shawn Moore, who was shot by his wife, Jeanne, inside their Weatherly Road residence Thursday evening, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said.

According to a Sheriff’s Office news release issued Friday, Shawn Moore, 44, left home Wednesday, on Christmas Day, after a domestic dispute with his wife, but returned Thursday shortly before 6 p.m., at which time another disturbance ensued.

Authorities said they found Shawn Moore dead at the scene. They did not reveal how many times he had been shot.

No charges have been filed against Jeanne Moore, who, according to a friend, remained at her home Friday. A call to the house by the Times was not answered.

Jan 25th, 2014

BROOKSVILLE – The wife of a man shot to death last month after the couple had a domestic dispute has died.

Jeanne Moore, 49, whom Hernando County deputies have questioned in relation to the shooting, died after what authorities believe was a heart attack at her home Friday afternoon, said Peyton Hyslop, Moore’s attorney.

Hernando sheriff’s detectives have been investigating the shooting death of Moore’s husband, Shawn Moore, on Dec. 26.

Shawn Moore, 44, was killed after a domestic dispute at their 9478 Weatherly Road home. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hyslop said Jeanne Moore, who worked for the City of Brooksville in the past, had not been charged with a crime.

“She was always a hard worker, willing to tackle whatever was put to her,” said Hyslop, who has known Moore for about 20 years. “She was very bright, friendly, just a fun person to be around.”

Hyslop said the Moores have two children, ages 11 and 13.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Yvone Tran (Garden Grove, CA)

Yvone Tran1

ORIGINAL POST, DEC. 26, 9:44 A.M.: Garden Grove Police suspect a murder-suicide is the cause of today’s early morning fatal shootings of a 51-year-old Vietnamese man and his 39-year-old Vietnamese wife.

“Family members told investigators that the couple was having marital problems and they were talking about a divorce,” says Lt. Jeff Nightengale, the police department’s spokesman.

At 4:16 a.m. this morning, dispatchers received a 9-1-1 “hang up” call, according to Nightengale, who adds a relative of the unidentified husband then called back on the police business line to say the man may have shot his wife and then himself.

Officers arrived to the residence in the 15000 block of Sail Avenue to find the husband and wife, who also has not been identified, suffering from gunshot wounds, said Nightengale, adding that paramedics later pronounced both dead at the scene.

The couple had two children, a 17-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy, but it is not yet clear if they were home or at another family member’s house at the time of the shootings, Nightengale noted.

UPDATE, DEC. 29, 6:44 P.M.: The county coroner’s office has identified the couple from the recent murder-suicide in their Garden Grove home.

They were 51-year-old Thanh Vuong, who died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot after shooting dead his 39-year-old wife, Yvone Tran, the coroner said.

Killed – Jason Canan (Ravenna, OH)

Jason Canan

A Windham Township man is being held in the Portage County jail without bond, charged in the murder of his nephew who was found dead in the house they shared on South Chapel Street on Christmas Day.

Joseph E. Thornton, 48, of 9889 S. Chapel St., is charged with murder, an unclassified felony, according to Portage County Sheriff David Doak. He will be arraigned today in Portage County Municipal Court in Ravenna.

Doak said emergency dispatchers received a call at 10:50 p.m. Wednesday from a relative of Jason R. Canan, 39, who lived with his uncle in the P M Estates Mobile Home Park on the north side of state Route 82, halfway between Garrettsville and Windham.

The relative reported being told that Canan may have been shot inside the residence, Doak said. Sheriff’s deputies, accompanied by Garrettsville police officers, responded to the residence and found Canan’s body inside. He had been shot and killed, Doak said.

Investigation led deputies to question Thornton in his nephew’s murder, and he was officially charged with murder Thursday morning, Doak said. The investigation is continuing, with assistance from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification, he said.
