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.

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

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.

Killed – Female Teen – Kayla Williams (Kilgore, TX)

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.
