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.

Killed – Gerald Rubin (Durango, CO)

Gerald Rubin

A Durango man was shot and killed late Saturday at Dallabetta Park on the west side of the Animas River near Home Depot.

Durango Police Department received a phone call about 11:10 p.m. from the man’s girlfriend saying he was suicidal, had a handgun and was on foot along the river.

Gerald Rubin, 52, fired a shot when La Plata County Sheriff’s Office deputies approached him in the park, 13616 La Posta Road, said Durango police spokesman Ray Shupe.

Jacob Steinhage, a deputy with the Sheriff’s Office, then fired one round. Rubin collapsed on the ground and received medical attention from the officers on scene and medics from Durango Fire & Rescue Authority, Shupe said.

Rubin died at the scene from an apparent gunshot wound to the abdomen. Authorities are determining if it was self-inflicted or if it came from Steinhage’s weapon. An autopsy will be performed.

Murder/Suicide – Anthony Lee Payne (Canton, GA)

Anthony Payne

The parents of a Union County double homicide suspect fatally shot by Cherokee Sheriff’s Office deputies were killed by their own son.

That’s according to preliminary autopsy results released Friday by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Complete autopsy results are pending at the GBI’s Medical Examiner’s Office.

The GBI’s regional office in Cleveland around 5:45 p.m. Thursday received a call for assistance from Union County Sheriff Mack Mason after his deputies discovered the bodies of Charles Payne, age 59, and Louise Payne, age 67, at a home at 1098 Nottley Dam Road in Blairsville.

GBI authorities discovered the Payne’s 2005 Ford F-150 pick-up truck was missing from the home and they later determined by an investigation that the couple’s son, Anthony Payne, 34, was a suspect in the couple’s death.

Authorities received information that Payne may have been located at a residence 790 Swan Lake near Holly Springs, so the GBI notified the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office to be on the look out for Payne, who they classified as “armed and extremely dangerous.”

Cherokee deputies later located Payne and shot and killed the suspect in a confrontation early Friday morning.

Less than week after a Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office deputy shot a wanted Blairsville man, the GBI Medical Examiner has determined that the 34-year-old man died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound and not from the law enforcement officer’s bullet.

He died about 1:30 a.m. Friday after a standoff and gunfire with a Cherokee County sheriff’s deputy after refusing to drop his gun, deputies said.

Police Shots Fired – Horace Gwyn (Wichita, KS)

Horace Gwyn

Update:  Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter says a bank robbery suspect killed in an officer-involved shooting Wednesday afternoon killed himself.

The suspect, identified as 26-year-old Horace Gwyn, was spotted by a deputy as he was running from the Credit Union of America early Wednesday morning.

Sheriff Easter says Gwyn fired a shot at the deputy while being chased.  He then started to turn toward the deputy and raised the gun to his own head.  The deputy fired five shots at him, hitting him once in the upper back. At the same time, Gwyn fired a shot into his head.

The coroner says the cause of death was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The deputy was not hurt.

Dispatchers received the robbery call at 7:23 a.m. Wednesday. A deputy who was in the area quickly responded to the scene, where he saw a man running from the building, Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter said.

MATTOON — Thomas O’Dell’s run from police ended as violently as it began when the 41-year-old homicide suspect was shot and killed by police during an apparent burglary attempt in Arkansas on Tuesday night.

The man Mattoon police say shot and killed Benjamin Newton at a Mattoon tavern on March 18 died after trading shots with police in Bryant, a central Arkansas city with a population of about 13,000 near Little Rock.

Bryant police officer Scott Johnson was wounded during the exchange of gunfire but was treated at a hospital and released and is expected to fully recover, according to an Associated Press report. Johnson was shot in the hand and shoulder. O’Dell was mortally wounded at the scene of the shooting and pronounced dead at Saline Memorial Hospital.

The first officer who arrived at the store, Officer Scott Johnson, found someone inside a fenced area along the west side of the building.

MATTOON (JG-TC) — Police say they’re looking for anyone who might have information about the shooting death of a bartender during the robbery of a Mattoon tavern Monday night.

Benjamin E. Newton, 33, of Mattoon was found dead at Toaster’s Pub, 1408 Broadway Ave., about 7:40 p.m. Newton is thought to be the only employee who was on duty at the tavern at the time and whoever shot him was apparently the only other person present, Mattoon police Chief Jeff Branson said.

An autopsy that took place on Tuesday showed that Newton died from a single gunshot to the face, Coles County Coroner Ed Schniers said. He said Newton was shot at close range with a medium-caliber firearm, likely a handgun.

HEBBRONVILLE (March 29, 2013)—Authorities Friday identified the Central Texas man who died in a gun battle with U.S. Border Patrol agents earlier this month after he was caught with a car stolen in Waco .

Matthew Simmons, 27, who is believed to be from Bosque County, died March 21 in a gun fight with three border patrol agents, one of whom was wounded.

The injured agent has since been released from a Corpus Christi hospital and is at home recovering, a USBP spokeswoman said Friday.

U.S. Border Patrol press liaison Efrain Perez said the agents were on patrol on March 21 in the area of Farm-to-Market Road 649 and Chihuahua Road, just south of Hebbronville, when they spotted a car on the side of the road that appeared to have been involved in an accident.

Perez said agents pulled up to the car, a gray 2010 Honda Civic, and began talking with a man identified as Simmons who was standing beside it.

One of the agents checked the car’s license plate and determined the vehicle had been stolen in Waco.

Perez said Simmons died after he pulled a handgun on the three agents, shot one of them in the hip and then was shot himself.

About 20 minutes later, an officer spotted the man at a Family Dollar store at 6160 S. 1300 East. The man fled when he saw the police officer pull into the parking lot, running south on 1300 East and into a residential neighborhood.

The officer gave chase, returning fire when the man stopped short of a parked car and began shooting at him. A bullet hit the getaway car.

No one was injured, but the man — and the woman waiting inside the car — took off on foot down the street, running into an open garage where they took a silver 2010 Dodge Caliber from the resident and drove away, evading police.
