11:54 AM: An 8-year-old girl who was fatally shot in East Oakland on Wednesday night would have been a third-grader at Fruitvale Elementary School in the fall, an Oakland schools spokesman said today.

Troy Flint, of the Oakland Unified School District, identified the girl as Alaysha Carradine.

Oakland police said Alaysha was one of four people hit by gunfire when someone fired shots into an apartment at 3440 Wilson St. in the city’s Dimond District at about 11:15 p.m. Wednesday.

The other three victims are all listed in stable condition at hospitals.

Flint said one of the other people who was shot was 7-year-old Amara York, who is scheduled to start second grade at Fruitvale Elementary School this fall.

Police said the other victims are a woman and a 4-year-old boy, but haven’t released their names. Investigators have also not disclosed a possible motive for the shooting.

This morning, there were seven bullet holes in the screen door of the apartment where the shooting happened.

That unit is one of five apartments at the white two-story building on Wilson Street, just east of Interstate Highway 580 near Fruitvale Avenue.

Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley alleged that reputed gang member Darnell Williams, a 22-year-old Oakland man, fired multiple shots into an apartment in the 3400 block of Wilson Street at about 11:15 p.m. on July 17 in retaliation for the shooting death of 26-year-old Jermaine Davis in the 1800 block of Derby Street in Berkeley about four hours earlier, at 6:52 p.m.

Triple Murder – Killed – Girl – Autumn Hartsfield (Pike County, AR)

Top: Autumn Hartsfield; Bottom Left: Julie Hartsfield, Bottom Right: Dana Hill

The Pike County man accused of shooting and killing his wife, her mother and her niece in July of 2013 has accepted a plea deal that puts him in prison for life.

43-year-old Timothy Allen Hill was facing the death penalty if convicted. On Monday morning, Hill pleaded guilty to 3 counts of capital murder and was sentenced to 3 life sentences in prison without parole.

Hill’s estranged wife, 33-year-old Dana Hill was found shot to death inside his Delight, AR home on July 13. His 9-year-old niece Autumn Hartsfield and her grandmother, 54-year-old Julie Hartsfield were found in Dana’s car in the driveway. Julie Hartsfield had been shot to death. Autumn had been critically wounded. She later died at a Hot Springs hospital.

Investigators say the couple was separated and were the parents of two small children. They say the shootings occurred when Dana came to the home to pick up the children. Deputies say after the shooting, Hill notified a relative, who notified law enforcement.

Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division and deputies of the Pike County Sheriff’s Department are continuing their investigation today into the murders of two women and a child.

At 7:05 PM Saturday evening (July 13th), authorities received a 9-1-1 telephone call reporting a shooting incident at 3489 Highway 301, southwest of Delight (Pike County).

Found dead at the scene were Dana Hill, 33, of 3489 Highway 301, Delight and Julie Hartsfield, 54, of 905 Walnut Street, Waldo (Columbia County).

Autumn Hartsfield, 9, was wounded during the shooting incident and was transported from the scene to a Hot Springs hospital where she later died.

Timothy Allen Hill, 43, also of 3489 Highway 301, Delight was taken into custody at the scene and is being held today in connection with the murders as the investigation continues.

Initial findings during the investigation have caused agents and deputies to believe the shooting arose out of a domestic disturbance which may have preceded the gunfire.

Mass Shooting – Wounded – Girl (Pontiac, MI)

female

A gunman opened fire at a crowd of several hundred spectators at an informal July 4th fireworks show hosted by a local party store, killing a 33-year-old father and injuring his two children and four other people.

Several hundred people had gathered in front of Perry’s Palace Liquor Store at North Perry and Chamberlain streets about 11 p.m. Thursday. After a fight broke out at the store, a suspect fired shots into the crowd, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies and Oakland County Medical Examiner’s Office investigators confirm that a 33-year-old Pontiac man was killed after sustaining a gunshot wound to the head.

A 35-year-old Pontiac man was arrested at about 4 a.m. Friday, deputies said. He was taken into custody at his home after several witnesses on the scene identified him. Detectives continue to seek warrants and investigate.

The victim’s 6- and 12-year-old children also were injured in the shooting. His 6-year-old son was shot in the head, officials report. The boy suffered injuries that were not life threatening and was transported to Children’s Hospital in Detroit, where he remains in stable condition.

The man’s 12-year-old daughter suffered an injury to her forearm. She was treated at McLaren Oakland Hospital and released.

Two 22-year-old women also were shot in their lower legs. A 28-year-old man was shot once in the hip and forearm, and a 23-year-old man was shot once in the leg.

The Ridgway State Police continue investigating the deaths of seven year old Brian and eight year old Nicole David and their father, thirty two year old Brian David Senior.

That’s not far from Horton Township, about 100 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, where state police believe Brian Keith David Sr. shot both children before shooting himself last Thursday. The investigation continues, but police believe the incident was a murder-suicide.

The girl was flown to a hospital and taken off life-support Sunday night hours after the accident.
