Attempted Double Murder/Suicide – Howard Partee (Los Angeles, CA)

male

WILLOWBROOK, Calif. (KTLA) — Authorities on Thursday identified an alleged gunman who was found dead after a standoff at a home in Willowbrook.

Howard Michael Carl Partee, 34, of Willowbrook, allegedly wounded two officers in a shootout on Tuesday evening, setting off a barricade situation that went on for about 13 hours.

The shooting happened 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday in the 2200 block of East 117th Street.

LAPD officers and Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were conducting a probation check at a back house on a property.

Police were leaving when they apparently smelled marijuana coming from the front house and decided to investigate.

As the officers were ordering people to exit the home, gunfire erupted.

“The suspect basically ambushed our officers as they were conducting a search of that residence with probation,” LAPD Lt. Andy Neiman said.

The alleged gunman was in the attic above the kitchen, police said.

When an LAPD gang officer peered into the attic, he was shot.

He was wounded in the cheek and neck, and was rushed to St. Francis Hospital.

The officer underwent surgery on Tuesday night and was listed in critical but stable condition.

At least five officers exchanged gunfire with the alleged attacker, as bullets ripped through the ceiling and floor, police said.

A county probation officer also suffered a leg wound and was treated at the scene.

A Willowbrook man who allegedly shot a Los Angeles police officer in the face last week during a probation check died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, L.A. County coroner’s officials said Monday.

The autopsy on Howard Michael Carl Partee, 33, determined the death was a suicide, said Ed Winter, assistant chief of operations for the coroner’s office.

Shots Fired at Police – Man (Lee County, FL)

male

LEE COUNTY, FL –
It’s being described as a domestic situation that affected an entire neighborhood.

A 70-year-old retired New York police officer took his family hostage inside their home and had a shoot out with police before he ultimately shot himself.

Officials we spoke with say his body was found in the home’s swimming pool.

Residents said their 70-year-old neighbor Arthur Hohensee, who they knew as Arty, had been separated from his wife and hadn’t been seen here for months until Wednesday.

Eric and Mary Ann Epic saw him enter the neighborhood just before 4 p.m. Wednesday.

“He started to complain I lost everything my wife and my daughter took everything,” Eric said.

He headed to the home here on Lakeland Circle. What the Epics say they saw next they’ll never forget.

“I saw him shooting at the home,” Mary Ann said.

Deputies say that was around 4:16 p.m. Wednesday.

“A gentleman in his 70s had a firearm and fired that at his wife and daughter,” said Tony Schall, a spokesman for the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

Minutes later deputies arrived.

“We have secured the area. We have locked down Gateway Elementary School. We have vacated residences nearby,” Schall said.

Deputies say the suspect began firing shots at officers.

“Deputies were not hit by bullets. We do not know at this time if the subject was hit or not,” Schall said.

The suspect held his estranged wife and daughter hostage inside the home.

Wounded – Police Officer 1 (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.

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.

Wounded – Police Officer (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.
