Double Murder/Suicide – Killed – Female Teen – Brianna Jones (Louisburg, NC)

Brianna Jones1

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–Man-fatally-shot-after-killing-2

Triple Murder – Killed – Female Teen – Zainee Hailey (Newark, NJ)

Zainee Hailey

NEWARK — One of the teenage victims of a Christmas night shooting in Newark was a 13-year-old girl taking out the trash, a law enforcement source said today.

Zainee Hailey, 13, was killed while taking garbage out of her Schley Street house, the source said. She was a student at Bragaw Avenue Elementary School in Newark.

Also killed was Kasson Morman, 15, a resident of North Seventh Street in Newark, the source said. Mormon was a student at Central High School in Newark.

A third teenager was also injured in the shooting. The source did not identify him, but said the teenager is a 14-year-old student at Weequahic High School in Newark.

NEWARK — A 15-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting three teenagers on a Newark street on Christmas night last year, a spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said.

The boy pleaded guilty on Monday in juvenile court in connection with the murders of Zainee Hailey, Kasson Morman and Abdul Frazier, said Katherine Carter, spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, he faces up to 40 years in prison when he is sentenced, Carter said. But Carter said juveniles are sentenced to what is called an “indeterminate term,” meaning the parole board can release him when it determines he is rehabilitated.

The boy opened fire in the 100 block of Schley Street, because he felt “disrespected” after one of the boys apparently hit on his girlfriend, law enforcement sources have said.

Hailey, 13, was gunned down as she and her younger brother carried trash bags to the street from her family’s third-floor apartment. Hailey and Morman, 15, died shortly after the attack, and Frazier, 14, died from his injuries a few weeks later.

NEWARK — The third teenager shot on a South Ward street on Christmas night died early this morning in the hospital, authorities said,

Abdul Frazier, 14, was one of the three teenagers shot on Schley Street. He has spent the past three weeks at University Hospital where he died at 4:57 a.m. today, said Thomas Fennelly, the chief assistant Essex County Prosecutor.

The innocent Newark girl died in a hail of bullets intended for somebody else after she and her 7-year-old brother carried the holiday trash to the curb, authorities and neighbors said.

A visitor, Kasson Morman, 15, was also slain when the gunfire erupted around 10 p.m. Wednesday, while a 14-year-old boy was shot but survived — critically wounded with a bullet lodged in his spine.

Killed – Pregnant Teen – Eva Casara (Chicago, IL)

Eva Casara2

CHICAGO – A third suspect in the Christmas Day murder of a pregnant Chicago teen has been charged after surrendering Monday, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

Darius D. Marshall, 19, of Dolton, Ill., is due in court Thursday to face charges of murder and attempted armed robbery. His attorney, Stuart Goldberg, told the Sun-Times his client will plead not guilty.

Marshall turned himself in after his brothers, a 16-year-old boy and 21-year-old Diante Coakley, were charged with the murder of Eva Casara, 17, over the weekend. Prosecutors say Casara was shot in the back of the head during a botched robbery in which she was allegedly participating Dec. 25. She was reportedly 26 weeks pregnant with the child of the 16-year-old suspect, who was her boyfriend.

Prosecutors have said Casara plotted with her boyfriend, his brother Coakley and another unnamed brother to commit a robbery, reports the Sun-Times. They believe Coakley fired the fatal shot, though they say Casara wasn’t the intended target.

Casara was shot in the back of the head on Wednesday. Her body was found in a residential area in Dolton around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, but police believe the shooting occurred somewhere else. Casara was taken to the hospital, where doctors saved her baby but she died.

“We believe we found the actual location where this young lady was shot at,” Dolton Police Chief John Franklin said. “It was suspected (Wednesday) night that she was not actually shot at 1102, that she was placed there. And members of the Crime Task Force have found some shell casings in the 15200 South Dorchester where we believe the actual shooting did occur there.”!/Obituary

Killed – Female Teen – Alicia Cassandra Gomez (Compton, CA)

Alicia Cassandra Gomez

Alicia Cassandra Gomez, a 14-year-old girl, was shot and killed Saturday, Dec. 14, near East Elm Street and North Tamarind Avenue in Compton, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

Deputies responded to a call of gunshots about 10:10 p.m. and found the girl in the street suffering from several gunshot wounds, according to a release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Witnesses told deputies that Gomez was riding a bicycle when she was shot.

Gomez was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead at 10:47 p.m., said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner’s office.

An autopsy showed that Gomez died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Female Teen – Claire Davis (Littleton, CO)

Claire Davis

Claire Davis, the 17-year-old who was shot in the head during the Dec. 13 shooting at Arapahoe High School, died Saturday afternoon with her family at her side.

The high school senior died at 4:29 p.m. at Littleton Adventist Hospital after eight days on life support.

LITTLETON, Colo. – The family of a teenage girl who was shot and killed at Arapahoe High School are promising not to sue the school district over the murder of their daughter, if Littleton Public Schools agrees to a list of requests including an arbiter’s investigation.

Claire Davis was shot by a classmate inside Arapahoe High School in December 2013. She died in the hospital eight days later.

The shooter, fellow student, Karl Pierson, took his own life after shooting Claire, investigators said.

“They want to how Karl Pierson, who was known as troubled, how he fell through cracks and why he didn’t get the help he needed,” said family spokeswoman Katy Atkinson.

Davis, 17, was shot in the head by another student with a shotgun at point-blank range at the school on Dec. 13, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said.

The father of a Colorado teen that killed a classmate asked for his son to be remembered as a person “who lost his way for a moment” on the same day a vigil was held to commemorate the victim on the one-year anniversary of her death.

Police say Pierson was looking for revenge against a librarian, but couldn’t find the faculty member and killed himself as a school resource officer closed in. Davis was just a random victim, police surmised, and the gunman and victim didn’t even know each other.

In Friday’s shooting, Pierson was armed with a shotgun, a bandolier stocked with ammunition, a machete and three Molotov cocktails, Robinson said. Pierson fired five shots within 1 minute and 20 seconds, he said.

But the 18-year-old senior also was filled with a rage that began to unravel when he was told he could no longer serve as a captain on his speech and debate team. His father said the entries in his diary, which was kept on a thumb drive and hidden in his car, began to show a downward spiral that neither he nor his ex-wife could have imagined.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Friday’s shooting at Arapahoe High School by 18-year-old Karl Pierson likely was motivated by retaliation against a librarian at the school.

Robinson said that it appeared the librarian was the initial target but that the gunman planned to hurt multiple people.

He said the teen bought the pump-action shotgun legally Dec. 6 at a local store.

Anyone over 18 is allowed to buy a shotgun in Colorado; only those over 21 can legally buy a handgun.

The gunman, Karl Pierson, intended to kill another person in the school but fired randomly hitting 17-year-old Claire Davis at close range. He then killed himself.[2] Claire Davis died December 21, 2013.[3]

Killed – Female Teen – Aubrey Peters (Noblesville, IN)

Aubrey Peters1

The man charged with reckless homicide in the shooting death of a Noblesville teenager in December has pleaded guilty in Hamilton County court.

Jacob Travis McDaniel, 20, Noblesville, was arrested after he fatally shot 16-year-old Aubrey Peters with a handgun he thought would be empty, police said.

McDaniel pleaded guilty to reckless homicide and pointing a firearm, both felonies, according to a plea agreement he signed Friday. The court issued an order on the plea Monday.

According to a probable cause affidavit, McDaniel, Peters and two other men were in McDaniel’s house in the 8200 block of River Run Place about 11:20 p.m. Dec. 8 when the shooting happened.

Court documents say McDaniel was showing Peters and the two others a shotgun and a handgun. Dajuan Williams, one of the men, told police that “McDaniel tried to get Aubrey to hold the gun, but she didn’t want to.”

At that point, Williams told police, McDaniel ejected the magazine from the gun, pointed the weapon at Peters, took the safety off and pulled the trigger.

McDaniel apparently thought the gun was empty, the affidavit said, but when he pulled the trigger, a round fired. Peters was taken to St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The killing prompted an outpouring of support for Peters, who two years earlier was hailed as a hero for saving two children who fell through the ice on Morse Reservoir.

Killed – Female Teen – Destinee Ford (Jackson, MS)

Destinee Ford1

JACKSON, Miss. —Two teens were arrested after a Wingfield High School freshman was shot and killed not far from school.

Friday morning, Jackson police said they arrested 18-year-old Dennis Pickett and 17-year-old Demonte Finch. Both teens are charged with murder.

Authorities said 15-year-old Destinee Ford died after someone opened fire on the corner of Castle Hill Drive and Anna Lisa Lane, which is near Wilkins Elementary and Wingfield High School.

Police said several students were at the intersection where a fight broke out just after school was dismissed.

Saturday night, family and friends of Destinee Ford held a candle light vigil in her honor. The 15- year- old was shot and killed Thursday, as an innocent bystander to a fight.

Vance says during the fight, one person pulled a large caliber handgun and started firing into a group of students.

Destinee Ford was shot right outside of Wingfield High School Thursday just before 4 o’clock. She died at the hospital later, from a gunshot to the chest.

Double Shooting – Killed – Female Teen – Alyssa Jackson (Macon, GA)

Alyssa Jackson

A 16-year-old girl was shot to death in a drive-by and a 13-year-old boy wounded Thursday night in Macon.

The shootings happened shortly before 8:20 p.m. near a home at 2008 Cedar Ave. near Moseley Avenue, according to Macon police.

Officers responded to the scene after getting a 911 call about shots fired. They found the two teens shot, police spokeswoman Ms. Jami Gaudet said.

“The female teen was standing outside of a house with several other people at the time the shots were fired,” Ms. Gaudet said. “The 13 year-old male was in a vehicle traveling down Moseley Avenue with a relative when he was struck.”

The boy was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening gunshot wound to the head. But the girl died later from her injuries, Ms. Gaudet said.

Bibb County Coroner Mr. Leon Jones identified the girl as Alyssa Jackson, a student of Southwest High School.

She died about 20 minutes after being shot in the lower back at the Medical Center of Central Georgia, Mr. Jones said.

Prosecutor John Regan said two witnesses have identified Mintz, an alleged member of the Bloomfield Crips street gang, as one of two people who fired shots on Nov. 21, 2013, when Jackson was shot.

Jackson was shot while talking with Damion Bernard “Little Petey” Clayton on Cedar Avenue. Clayton, an alleged member of the rival 10-12 gang, was the alleged intended target.

Police have said then-13-year-old Charleston “Brother” Burnett III., was grazed on the head by a bullet while traveling in a vehicle on Moseley Avenue. He survived.

Clayton was killed months later, Feb. 22, 2014, at the Macon Little League ball field on Anthony Road, about a month after Mintz’s Jan. 17, 2014, arrest.

Mintz was 16 when he was arrested.

A Macon man pleaded guilty to murder Monday in the 2013 fatal shooting of 16-year-old Alyssa Jackson.

Dontavius “Man Man” Mintz, 18, entered his plea as part of an agreement with prosecutors that he will “truthfully” testify in a pending case in exchange for a recommended sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole.

He pleaded guilty, standing before a judge in Bibb County Superior Court on Monday afternoon, but was not sentenced.

Johnathan Sanchez, also known as “J Boi,” is accused of killing two women and a man.

The three killed were identified Thursday as Yosselyn Alfaro, 21, and Daniel Munoz and Veronica Hernandez, both 17.

The injured, a man and a woman, were taken via Life Flight helicopter ambulance to the Memorial Hermann Hospital trauma center, according to hospital staff.

Harris County Detective Sgt. Ben Beal said on Friday that the woman remains on life support. She has a gunshot wound to the head.

Beal said the man is in stable condition.

Harris County sheriff’s investigators said they believe a gunman was in an apartment at Peppermill Place, in the 8200 block of Sunbury in the Copperfield area, when he opened fire about 4:25 p.m. Wednesday.

Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said Wednesday that all of the five were shot several times before the gunman closed the door behind him and fled. Deputies at the scene said the victims were seated and had been shot in the head.

Killed – Female Teen – V’ondra Olivaria (Clayton County, GA)

V'ondra Olivaria

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A Clayton County high school student was shot to death in her own bedroom.

Police said a teenager confessed to accidentally shooting V’ondra Olivaria, 16, in her Clayton County house on Silverwood Drive on Saturday.

Brandon Williams, 17, is facing involuntary manslaughter charges, along with reckless endangerment, and possession of a handgun by a person under 18.

“She was bubbly. She was loving, caring, givin , unselfish, just the sunshine. She was the sunshine,” Yolanda Rincon, the teen’s mother, told Channel 2’s Rachel Stockman.

A Clayton County mother says a teenage boy shook her hand when he and a friend came to her house to visit her daughters Saturday night.

Minutes later, that same teenager allegedly shot and killed her 16-year-old daughter, V’ondra Olivaria.

Sunday night, Williams was arrested, Officer Charlene Watson-Fraser with Clayton County police said. Williams, of Jonesboro, was charged with involuntary manslaughter, reckless conduct, possession of a handgun by a person under 18, obstruction and criminal trespassing and booked into the Clayton County jail.

Mass Shooting – Killed – Female Teen – Audrey Sanders (Phoenix, AZ)

Audrey Sanders2

PHOENIX — The man who killed his child, wife and brother-in-law Tuesday night in Phoenix before turning his gun on himself, once drove his family into the desert, forced them to the ground and threatened them with a gun, according to court records.

“It all ends now,” the 53-year-old Michael Sanders told his terrified wife and daughter, 51-year-old Carol Sanders and 14-year-old Audrey as they cowered on the ground, according to a restraining order petition filed by the woman in October.

The document depicted Sanders as erratic and prone to violent outbursts.

“He kept remarking what a nice day it was,” she wrote. “We strongly believed he was saying ‘nice day to die.’ We believed he planned to kill us all.”

The incident, which started with an argument between Michael Sanders and his daughter during a family outing, was one of numerous episodes in which he threatened his family members, according to Carol Sanders.

On one occasion, he raged at his wife because she purchased some fish at the grocery store and forgot it in the car, according Carol Sanders’ account in the document. When she arrived at home, Michael Sanders screamed expletives at her, threw the remaining groceries around the house and punched several holes in the wall of the family’s garage.

Later, he told his wife that she had “30 days” to get money from her mother to pay off the home or he’d “burn it down with me inside.”

The threats became a reality Tuesday when Michael Sanders fatally shot Carol, Audra and Carol’s brother, 49-year-old Tom Fitzpatrick at their home in northeast Phoenix, police said. He then turned the gun on himself, police spokesman Sgt. Trent Crump said.

Police believe he contacted his wife as she was gathering her belongings from their house.

The victims were found scattered throughout the property. Carol Sanders was found on fire in the backyard, Audra Sanders was found dead inside the home and Carol’s brother was found in the front yard.

Michael’s body was found in the alley behind the home, Crump said.

Just seven hours before the killings, Michael and Carol Sanders appeared at an order-of-protection hearing in a Maricopa County courtroom at 9 a.m. Tuesday. Michael, an unemployed Phoenix man, was challenging the restraining order his wife got in October. She had filed for divorce Oct. 14, citing domestic violence.

The judge declined to lift the order, Carol’s attorney Leslie Satterlee said. Another judge that day had just authorized supervised visits between Michael and his daughter Audra.

“After the judge entered the order, there was nothing to indicate that he would react in this way. He did not blow up. He did not storm out. There was no indication that this was coming.”

Police first started receiving calls about 4 p.m. Tuesday with reports of shots being fired in the residential neighborhood, Crump said.

Police dispatchers could hear gunshots in the background while the neighbors were on the phone, he said.

Investigators now believe Michael Sanders forced his way into the home as his wife was removing belongings with Audra and her brother, police said.

Mass Shooting – Killed – Female Teen – Arielle Shepherd (Cypress, TX)

Arielle Shepherd

Two men are in custody in connection to Saturday night’s deadly house party in the Cypress area of northwest Harris County, according to officials.

The shooting happened just before 11pm Saturday at a home in the 7300 block of Enchanted Creek Drive near FM 529. Investigators have told us 10 shots were fired at this party.

Willie Young, 21, and Randy Stewart, 18, were arrested Monday morning. Young is charged with deadly conduct while Stewart is charged with aggravated assault. (Since this story was published, charged against Willie Young were dropped.)

Stewart didn’t say much as a Harris County investigator led him handcuffed through a crowd of cameras.

“Rest in peace Queric,” he said.

Queric Richardson, 17, and Arielle Shepherd, 17, died in the shooting. Richardson’s 16-year-old brother, Kenneth Guidry, was also shot while trying to save his brother, but survived.

HOUSTON, TX) – A murder charge has been filed against Randy Stewart for the 2013 death of Queric Richardson. Richardson was one of two killed during a house party in northwest Harris County in November of last year.

Randy Stewart has been in the Harris County jail since being arrested on November 11, 2013 and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly weapon in connection with the shooting at a home in the 7300 block of Enchanted Creek.

In February of this year, Stewart and his brother, Marvin, were also charged with with tampering with evidence.

Marvin Stewart is not in custody.

Queric Richardson, 17, and Arielle Olivia Shepherd, also 17, were killed and about 20 others were injured when suspects started firing guns during a house party that had been advertised as a birthday celebration on Twitter and other social media.

Investigators are still actively looking into the death of Ms. Shepherd.

As for the survivors of this mass shooting, 18 people suffered gunshot wounds, those injuries varying in severity. A 19th victim suffered a broken leg.

The garage door is now bowed out. That’s where deputies say people were pushing, trying frantically to get out of the house.

The anonymous witness said the shooting went on for three to five minutes. When it ended, he walked by two young people who had been shot, trying to get to safety.

Authorities have given varying accounts of the number of people injured, but they clarified Sunday that 20 were hurt, with 16 suffering gunshot wounds and four others varying injuries such as a fracture and twisted ankles in the panic to flee.

Authorities said scores of partygoers, mostly 17-, 18- and 19-year-olds, were dancing in the home at around 11 p.m. when someone pulled a pistol and fired it into the air, apparently in a moment of celebration.

Moments later, someone else started shooting, as panicked teens rushed from the home.

“We’re regretful he had to go through that experience,” Garcia said. Garcia indicated that police are still looking for at least two other suspects in regard to the Cypress birthday party shootings that happened Saturday. He said sheriff’s investigators are looking to the public for help in finding the others involved. Garcia also said that more information from the community could help “further exonerate [Young].”

Community activist Quanell X prompted the response by requesting an internal investigation of Garcia by HCSO, calling the arrest a “rush to judgment.” Police originally arrested Young and Randy Stewart, 18, on Monday morning for the shooting that happened at a birthday party in Cypress advertised on social media. With more than 100 in attendance, two teens were fatally shot and 19 others were injured during the gunfire that broke out between 11 p.m. and midnight.

Double Shooting – Killed – Female Teen – Emaiyne Pittman (Miami, FL)


A man injured in a Miami shooting is recovering at Jackson Memorial Hospital after doctors removed a bullet from his head, his family said.

Pedro Nunez, 27, was briefly released from the hospital Tuesday morning but later told to return so a bullet could be removed, his aunt Maira Nunez said in Spanish.

A teen girl was killed in the shooting, which happened around 12:30 a.m. in the 1400 block of Northwest 34th Street, Miami Police spokeswoman Kenia Reyes said.

Reyes said the girl was rushed to the hospital, where she died. Friends identified her as Emaiyne Pittman and said she was just 16 years old.

Nunez was also rushed to the hospital after he was shot in front of his grandmother’s house. He was sitting in a van with two other people at the time, including Christian Marino.

He said in Spanish that they were listening to music when two men approached the van and started shooting. Nunez was struck in the head and Pittman, who was standing outside of the vehicle, was hit several times.

A dog, Coco, was also shot at the scene and taken to a nearby animal hospital with two bullet wounds. The dog, who was struck in her two right legs, is expected to be okay.

Double Shooting – Wounded – Female Teen (Pittsburgh, PA)


November 2, 2013 4:38 PM

The Allegheny County Medical Examiners Office has released the identity of a man fatally shot during an early morning attack in Beltzhoover.

Antoine Dudley, 35, of Natrona Heights, was shot to death early this morning in an attack in Beltzhoover in which a minimum of 15 shots from a handgun were fired.

Officers who responded at 3:39 a.m. to a 911 call found the victim, whose name was not immediately released, lying unresponsive on the kitchen floor in a home at 310 East Warrington Ave. He had been shot multiple times in the upper portion of his body, police said.

Homicide detectives learned the victim and his girlfriend, who resides at the home, had returned there after going to a convenience store. As they were walking up the front steps toward the house, a male began shooting at them from the street, detectives reported.

The couple ran along the side of the house toward the back door and the victim collapsed after being wounded. The woman and a teenager pulled the victim into the house and called 911.

There were six people in the home at the time of the shooting ranging in age from 11 months to 22 years. The only other injury was reported by a 15 year-old girl who was grazed in the arm by a bullet that was fired at the house. Her injury was minor and she was not transported for treatment, detectives said.

Mass Shooting – Killed – Female Teen – Shannon Moore (Phoenix, AZ)


Phoenix police said Sunday that they may never learn exactly why a 56-year-old man fatally shot a family of four who lived next door before killing himself in a townhouse complex in Phoenix.

But neighbors in the family-oriented, 250-unit complex, near 17th Avenue and Hazelwood Street, said the shooter often argued with pet owners about barking dogs and left written notes complaining about the noise.

“He didn’t want noise,” neighbor and dog owner Denise Lopez said. “The dogs were waking him up. He always used to complain.”

What is known, according to police, is that Michael Dante Guzzo took his pump-action shotgun and, at about 9a.m. Saturday, fatally shot his next-door neighbors: Bruce Moore, 66; his daughter, Renee, 36; her husband, Michael, 42, who took his wife’s last name; their son, Shannon, 17; and two dogs.

Guzzo then began walking to a unit across the courtyard, where a Chihuahua and pit bull had started barking at the gunfire, the dogs’ owner said.

Guzzo banged and kicked the front door, said Libni, who lives at the unit and declined to provide a last name. Libni’s girlfriend had just left the shower and was trying to open the door and hold a towel around herself at the same time, he said, but he sent her upstairs to be with the two children.

“That’s when he fired through the door,” said Libni, who was standing to the side at the time.

Guzzo then began to walk away as Libni raced up to the second floor, retrieved his gun and opened a window, he said.

“A man’s got to protect his family,” Libni said.

At the sound of the window opening, Guzzo raised the shotgun and fired, shattering the glass, Libni said. He said he had just ducked.

“It’s a miracle,” he said.

Guzzo then walked across the courtyard to his unit, went inside and fatally shot himself, police said.

The ex-wife of the man who murdered his four neighbors and killed their two dogs Saturday because the canines wouldn’t stop barking loudly, says there were warning signs he would snap.
Michael Guzzo, the 56-year-old gunman, became enraged over the noise from the pets at a neighboring townhouse in a Phoenix apartment complex, detectives say.
They believe the pharmacist used a pump-action shotgun to shoot dead Bruce Moore, 66; his daughter, Renee Moore, 36; her husband Michael Moore, 42 (who took his wife’s last name); and their son, Shannon Moore, 17. He also slaughtered their dogs.
Guzzo then fired several rounds into the door of another neighbor.He returned home and killed himself.

Triple Shooting – Wounded – Female Teen (New Orleans, LA)


A man who was brought to the hospital in critical condition after being wounded last week during a drive-by shooting in Algiers has died from his injuries, the Orleans Parish coroner’s office said.

Christopher Petty, 30, of Harvey was one of three people shot about 7 p.m. on Oct. 23 near Copernicus Street and Mardi Gras Boulevard.

Willie Boudreaux, 31, was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time after the shooting. A 14-year-old girl was treated for a gunshot wound to her leg.

The shooting happened Wednesday just before 7 p.m. at the intersection of Mardi Gras Boulevard and Copernicus Street.

Double Murder/Suicide – Killed – Female Teen – Kristen Bianca Furgeri (Phoenix, AZ)

Kristen Bianca Furgeri1

The suspect in an October double murder in Phoenix has died after a chase and a shooting in Tucson.

KOLD-TV, the CBS affiliate in Tucson, reports that U.S. Marshals and Toledo police served a warrant on the suspect at a motel near the Tucson airport.

Police said that led to a carjacking and a pursuit to 22nd Street and Fifth Avenue in south Tucson where the suspect, Hector “Flaco” Taner Karaca, 24, shot himself.

Police were looking for Karaca in connection with the Oct. 21 murders of 25-year-old Jose Alonso Villa and his 17-year-old girlfriend, Kristen Bianca Furgeri. Their bodies were found in a bed in a back house near 27th Avenue and Indian School Road shortly after 11:30 p.m., said Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump.

Villa’s brother heard gunshots coming from the back house and told his mother. She looked out the front window and saw Karaca running to her car and leaving, according to the police report.

It also said Villa’s mother waited about 10 minutes until her husband arrived home before calling police. When her husband got home, he checked on his son and Furgeri and found them shot to death.

The charred remains of a white 2005 Hyundai Elantra stolen from the scene were found in an alley near 20th Avenue just north of Buckeye Road the following morning. Police identified the suspect as Karaca, who spent time in the Arizona prison system for vehicle theft.

In an interview with police, Villa’s mother said she went to the back house about 9:30 p.m. and there was a man there she knew as “Flaco” carrying a green, camouflage gun in the home with her son and his girlfriend.

Villa’s father told police Karaca and Villa became friends about a month prior to the deadly shooting and that Karaca would come to the house once a week. On the day of the shooting, Villa’s father said Karaca was trying to sell him the camouflage gun.

He said witnesses saw the suspect get into the family’s Hyundai and drive away with the car’s lights off.

On Dec. 12, authorities located Karaca in Tucson and when they attempted to arrest him, he led police on a chase and then shot himself to death.

Kayla Williams

Kilgore Public Information Officer Roman Roberson confirms with KLTV that a teenager was shot and killed Saturday night in Kilgore.

Roberson tells us the shooting happened shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday in the 3000 block of Mustang Drive in Kilgore, located off of Farm to Market Road 349 northeast of downtown Kilgore.

Upon arrival officers found 17-year-old Kayla Williams dead from an apparent gunshot wound. Witnesses in the area identified the shooter to police as 22-year-old Coby Hudgins of Kilgore. Police say he left the residence after the shooting before police arrived. Hudgins was later involved in a vehicle crash on FM 2087. He was arrested for DWI by DPS officers.

Following an investigation by the Kilgore Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Unit, Hudgins was charged with murder and is currently being held in the Gregg County Jail on bonds over $100,000.

LONGVIEW (KYTX) — Coby Hudgins was found guilty of murdering Kayla Williams late Wednesday. His sentencing hearing was set for Thursday morning. Hudgins faces up to life in prison.

Coby Hudgins was on trial for fatally shooting a Hallsville teen at a Kilgore mobile home.

During testimony Wednesday, a police detective stated that between 8:30 and 8:45, Hudgins killed Kayla Williams and fired three more shots.

Crime scene photos show Kayla Williams was likely eating Reese’s Pieces with socks, shorts and a t-shirt on a couch when she was shot dead in October 2013, a state prosecutor says.

Leah Anderson was the state’s first witness. She was the sister of Hudgins’ girlfriend and was with him that night. They later picked up Williams, who was her best friend, and they all returned from Longview to Hudgins’ house. She testified that they hung out for about 30-45 minutes before Hudgins revealed the gun. She says drinking and illegal drug use was involved.

Abigail Valencia

A teenager in Big Spring has been formally charged for the murder of his girlfriend.

19-year-old Dakota Anguiano was indicted for killing 17-year-old Abigail Valencia.

You’ll remember he was locked up back in September after taking the young mother to the hospital with a gunshot wound.

Valencia died from that injury a few days later.

A 17-year-old girl remains in critical condition following a shooting in Big Spring Thursday night.

Abigail Valencia of Big Spring was brought to the hospital by private vehicle driven by her boyfriend. She appeared to have a single gun shot wound to the left side of her head, near the ear and was in critical condition.

Anguiano told officers he and Abigail were walking in the area of Circle and Sycamore when a black Escalade came around the corner and a shot was fired from the vehicle and struck Abigail. He advised that a friend of his drove by and let him take his vehicle to get Abigail to the hospital.

Investigators were called out and Patrol Officers attempted to find the crime scene. As investigators talked to witnesses Anguiano’s story began to unravel.

It was found that the shooting had occurred at 1317 Tucson. The crime scene was located there and was processed. At this point Dakota Anguiano was arrested for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. The weapon was not at the scene but the investigation led to a subject who had removed the weapon from the scene and hidden it in another home on Tucson Street.

The weapon, a .45 cal. handgun was recovered and the subject arrested. He was identified as 19-year-old David Westbrook of Big Spring. He is charged with Tampering With Evidence. There has been no motive established at this time and officers believe that Abigail’s 2 year old daughter was in the room when her mother was shot.

A Big Spring man and his friend are in jail after a Thursday night shooting in Big Spring, according to a news release from the Big Spring Police Department.

Double Murder – Killed – Female Teen – Nyquese McCollum (Newark, NJ)

Nyquese McCollum1

Police say cousins Damien Matteaux and Nyquese McCollum were discovered in a parked vehicle at around 3:40 p.m. yesterday. (9/15/13)

EDISON – Investigators are trying to determine how two people became the latest to fall victim to violence in Newark.

Police say cousins Damien Matteaux, 23, of Newark, and Nyquese McCollum, 16, of Irvington, were discovered in a parked vehicle at around 3:40 p.m. yesterday near the intersection of South 10th Street and 15th Avenue. They were pronounced dead on the scene.

NEWARK— NaQuese McCollum was 16, just started her junior year at Newark’s West Side High School, and had made her mother a promise: She would soon make plans for her future.

“She said she would know by the end of this year what she would want to do,” her mother, 41-year-old Shana Norris, said Sunday in the kitchen of their Irvington apartment. “She wanted to go to college.”

But McCollum, who her mother said could fill a room with her presence and was loved by everyone around, never got the chance. She died Saturday afternoon in a shooting in Newark. Her 23-year-old cousin, Damien Matteaux of Newark, was also killed.

It appears Matteaux was the target of the shooting, according to Anthony Ambrose, chief of detectives with the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office. Ambrose said the investigation was continuing and no arrests had been made.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Female Teen – Alix Norman (Brigham City, UT)

Alix Norman

The gun Michael Woodruff used to kill his 16-year-old step-daughter and then himself earlier this week was borrowed from a friend the day of the shooting, police believe.

Brigham City Police Lt. Michael Nelsen said Woodruff, 45, had met with a friend Tuesday prior to the apparent murder-suicide and borrowed a .40-caliber Glock pistol.

The friend called police on Wednesday after hearing about Woodruff’s death, fearing the gun used may have been his.

“He had thought nothing of it,” Nelsen said of the gun owner. “He had done it many times before. They had been shooting several times together before, and it is very common that he has borrowed the gun before.”

But Nelsen said the gun owner had no idea Woodruff would use his weapon to allegedly kill Alix Norman, a family dog and Woodruff, himself, in their Brigham City home.

“He thought nothing of it whatsoever,” Nelsen said of the gun owner. “He was just distraught, completely distraught.”

Norman’s mother discovered the bodies in different rooms of her home — at 545 N. 100 East — about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. Police described the scene as a murder-suicide carried out by Woodruff.

Nelsen said Thursday that autopsies revealed that Norman and Woodruff each were shot twice. Nelsen said police believe the first shot Woodruff fired at himself was non-life-threatening.

Priscilla Perez

On July 26, 2013, a mass shooting occurred at an apartment complex in Hialeah, a city in

Miami-Dade County, Florida. Seven people, including the shooter, were killed in the incident. The shooter was identified by police as 42-year-old Pedro Alberto Vargas, a resident of Hialeah, who, after setting his apartment ablaze, opened fire from his balcony and inside the apartment, then held two people hostage before being fatally shot by a SWAT team on the early hours of July 27.[3] It was the deadliest mass shooting in Hialeah’s history,[4] as well as the deadliest in the entire Miami area in three decades.[5]

According to officials, Vargas poured combustible liquid on $10,000 of cash and set it on fire in his fourth-floor apartment at around 6:30 p.m.[6][7][8] The building’s manager, 79-year-old Italo Pisciotii, and his 69-year-old wife Samira noticed the smoke and ran to the apartment, to which Vargas stepped into the hallway and opened fire with a Glock 17 9mm semiautomatic pistol, shooting and killing both.[1][3][9][10] He proceeded to go his balcony on the fourth floor of the building and fired 10 to 20 bullets into the street, fatally hitting 33-year-old Carlos Gavilanes as he got out of his car.[3][9][10]

Vargas then kicked open the door of apartment 304, where he shot and killed the residents, 64-year-old Patricio Simono, his 51-year-old wife Merly Niebels, and their 17-year-old daughter Priscilla Perez;[9][10][11][12] Priscilla Perez was reportedly shot while she was hiding inside a bathtub.[13] Police officers responded to the scene and exchanged gunfire with Vargas throughout the complex.[14] Vargas then entered another apartment on the fifth floor where he took two people hostage for about three hours. After negotiations reportedly broke down, a SWAT team entered the building and fatally shot Vargas after a brief shootout; the two hostages escaped unharmed.[8][9][10][14]

Merly S. Niebles, 51 (wife of Patricio Simono, killed in apartment 304)

The shooter was identified as 42-year-old Pedro Alberto Vargas, a Cuban native. According to records, he resided in the apartment complex with his mother and had committed no serious criminal offenses. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1997 and was naturalized in 2004.[15][16] Neighbors described Vargas as a quiet man who commonly got into arguments with his mother in their apartment.[7][17] According to several LA Fitness customers, Vargas frequented the local gym and often lifted weights as a way to channel out pent-up anger. He also used steroids, expressed frustration at bad experiences with women, and was noticeably antisocial.[14] The Glock 9mm pistol used in the shooting was legally purchased by Vargas.[6][15]

Police were called to the aging, five-story apartment building in Hialeah, a working class suburb a few miles northwest of downtown Miami, on Friday at 6:30 p.m. The first calls reported a fire, but when firefighters arrived, they heard shots and immediately notified police, Zogby said.

All six people were killed in a short time span, Zogby said, and it’s possible they were all dead by the time police arrived.

Just hours before going on a shooting rampage at his Hialeah apartment complex, gunman Pedro Vargas called 911 and told dispatchers he was being harassed by someone using witchcraft against him.

In the bizarre 12-minute call, Pedro Vargas, 42, asked the dispatcher if she could run the license plate of a vehicle parked outside his building. His mother then got on the phone, telling the dispatcher her son was acting strangely.

The dispatcher told Esperanza Patterson, 83, she had officers en route to the apartment, but the mother told her not to send them, explaining first that she feared her son would turn against her, and later, that he was not there.

“He might think I’m his enemy,” she said in Spanish.

The call was placed Friday at 1:37 p.m. About five hours later, Vargas set the apartment on fire and killed the husband and wife building managers, a family of three and a man who was returning from his son’s boxing practice.

Murder/Suicide – Female Teen – Killed – Jacqueline Flores (Harvard, IL)


HARVARD – Miguel Andrade was accused of threatening to kill the mother of his infant child about six months ago, according to McHenry County Court records.

On Thursday morning, Andrade and Jackie Flores were found dead near Flores’ home in an apparent murder-suicide.

Using a key, Andrade entered Flores’s home around 1 a.m. where Flores, the couple’s 9-month-old baby and Flores’s mother were sleeping, according to McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Michael Combs. Andrade demanded to see the baby and began pointing a gun at the child and at Flores.

Flores’s mother took the baby and fled the home.

Andrade shot Flores once in her home. The bullet hit her wrist and head but did not penetrate her skull, Combs said.

Flores then fled the home and was chased by Andrade through the neighborhood. Several neighbors said they heard screaming and said Flores was banging on neighbors’ doors. She was eventually chased into a neighbor’s yard and shot fatally in the head, Combs said.

Andrade then shot himself in the head as police arrived to the scene. A .22-caliber revolver was recovered near him.

Combs said he believes the child is currently living with Flores’s mother.

Andrade, 19, was taken to Mercy Harvard Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Flores, a 17-year-old senior at Harvard High School, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Andrade had threatened to kill Flores more than six months ago, according to court records. He was arrested Jan. 13 and charged with misdemeanor counts of endangering the life of a child, assault, harassment through electronic communication and battery.–216950471.html

Mary Clare (Molly) Conley1

EVERETT — Snohomish County prosecutors charged Erick N. Walker with second-degree murder Tuesday in connection with the fatal drive-by shooting of 15-year-old Molly Conley of Seattle.

Roe said the investigation into the shooting spree last month, in which Walker is alleged to have shot Mary Clare (Molly) Conley and fired on nearly a dozen houses and cars in the Marysville and Lake Stevens area, is nowhere near concluded.

Conley was an outstanding student at Seattle’s Bishop Blanchet High School, a gifted athlete and a girl of considerable compassion, according to relatives and friends. She was celebrating her birthday June 1 when she was shot in the neck while she and five friends were walking along a Lake Stevens road.

Investigators are looking into reports that two other drive-by shootings in Lake Stevens and Marysville later that night may be related. Those shootings, reported at 12:45 a.m. and 2:30 a.m., resulted in property damage, police said.

Molly Conley, 15, was a 4.0 student and an active member of her school — she played lacrosse and performed in drama. On Saturday night, she was walking in Lake Stevens with friends when she was shot and killed in what detectives are calling a random drive-by shooting. The shooter is still at large.

A South Carolina man was identified today as the person who shot at a car containing a woman and her two daughters in Peabody on Sunday and then apparently shot himself to death in a nearby home, officials said.

Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett identified the man as Wilfredo Lorenzo, 47, of London Court in Aiken, S.C. A formal cause of death is pending an autopsy to be performed by the state medical examiner’s office, Blodgett said in a statement.

According to Peabody police and Blodgett’s office, Lorenzo opened fire on the car while it was parked on Monson Drive in Peabody. Inside the vehicle was a mother and her two daughters, ages 18 and 12, officials said. All three were unharmed.

After opening fire, Lorenzo went to 10 Monson Drive where he barricaded himself inside, prompting police to activate the regional SWAT team. When police sent in a robot with a camera on board, they discovered that Lorenzo had apparently shot himself, and was dead.

Police said the woman called police to the home at about 7 p.m. Sunday. She told dispatchers a man had fired shots at her and her two daughters, ages 12 and 18, as they drove away, according to investigators.
