The latest homicide victim in the city of St. Louis is a teenager who police say was shot while riding his scooter.

Antoine Bryant, seventeen, was pronounced dead at a hospital yesterday after he was shot in the Dutchtown South neighborhood in south city, officials say.

Police believe a suspect appeared from an alleyway at the 4700 block of Louisiana Avenue just before 6 p.m. and fired multiple shots at Bryant, who was operating a gas-powered scooter.

Bryant then drove himself to the 500 block of Elier Street nearby where police say he collapsed. Cops located him in front of a residence there; he was suffering from gunshot wounds to his shoulder.

He was taken to the hospital in critical and unstable condition and was pronounced dead later that evening.

Tyrone D. Taylor, 20, of the 3600 block of Michigan Avenue, was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.

Murder/Suicide – Dead – Male Teen – Ross Whitmire (Coleman, OK)

Ross Whitmire1

COLEMAN, Okla. – The OSBI is investigating after family members said a 14-year-old boy shot his grandmother in the head and then turned the gun on himself.

Authorities said a neighbor was trying to deliver fresh watermelon and tomatoes Monday when she found the grandmother’s body with a gunshot to the head in a house at 11700 Highway 48 South, just outside Coleman in Johnston County.

A short time later, Johnston County authorities found 14-year-old Ross Whitmire dead in a home just feet away with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation was called in to assist Johnston County Sheriff’s Department in the investigation of a crime scene Monday after two bodies were found in two different residences. Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to 11700 Highway 48 South, just outside of Coleman, at about 3 p.m. Monday after a female victim was found inside a home. Neighbors were trying to deliver fresh vegetables to the victim when they discovered her body. The victim appeared to have died from a gunshot to the head.

Double Murder – Killed – Male Teen – Gustavo Espinosa-Gamboa (Adams County, CO)

Gustavo Espinosa-Gamboa

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. — A man has been arrested after telling detectives he killed two missing male teens and then leading investigators to their bodies.

William Otto, 43, allegedly shot the two teens Saturday after they attempted to blackmail him with cell phone video of Otto touching them inappropriately and asking for sex acts, according to the probable cause affidavit.

When the teens, ages 15 and 16, allegedly confronted Otto at his home, he refused to give the teens $10,000 each in exchange for not reporting his solicitation, he told police. One of the boys “grabbed a knife” from his kitchen, prompting Otto to shoot them both with a .22-caliber handgun, he said.

“(Otto) fired his gun he believed four times,” the affidavit reads. “The second boy called out for his mother and fell limp.”

Otto then wrapped their bodies in carpet and buried them south of Highway 138 near Cottonwood Creek on Colorado’s eastern plains, according to the affidavit.

Mass Shooting – Wounded – Male Teen (DeSoto, TX)

male

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) -An army veteran, who also worked as a special education teacher and once performed as a Dallas Maverick ManiAAC, will be charged with four counts of capital murder, according to law enforcement officials from the Dallas and DeSoto Police Departments.

Erbie Bowser, 44, is accused of fatally shooting four women, and injuring four children during two separate shootings at homes in Dallas and DeSoto.

When the shootings were done Wednesday night, there were two slain women and two wounded minors at each location — one in Dallas and the other in DeSoto, roughly 15 miles to the south.

According to police, Bowser began his shooting spree around 10:30 p.m. at a home in the 7100 block of Long Canyon Trail in Dallas. Two people, 43-year-old Toya Smith and her 17-year-old daughter Tasmia Allen were killed. Police say Smith and Bowser were in a dating relationship, but Bowser was not related to anyone in the home. Two children were also shot. Smith’s 14-year-old son remains in critical condition and 17-year-old Dasmin Mitchell, a family friend visiting for the summer, is recovering from her injuries after surgery.

Bowser then traveled to a home about seven miles away in the 100 block of Galleria Drive in DeSoto. There, he tossed some type of explosive device into the home, police said, before opening fire again. In this shooting, police confirm Zina Bowser, 47, and her daughter Neima Williams, 28, were killed. Bowser was a nurse at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. An unidentified 11-year-old boy and 13-year-old boy remain in critical condition. Police say the suspect is the estranged husband of Zina Bowser and used to live at that home. He had no biological relation to Williams or the two children in the home, according to police.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, who has led a high-profile crusade against domestic violence, said Friday that he was “devastated” by the shootings and said that he would maintain his efforts, echoing previous description of domestic abusers.

“These are terrorists, these are people that are creating terror in our backyard,” Rawlings said. “And if we looked at them in that way, we would move heaven and earth to stop this.”

According to court records, Teal-Bowser filed for divorce from Bowser on Jan. 20, 2011. The order is still pending.

However, a protective order includes an affidavit detailing a violent incident at her home on Galleria Drive four days after that. According to the document, Bowser arrived home at 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 24. Teal-Bowser asked whether Bowser was moving out prior to the hearing date.

Bowser refused, the document says, saying “the only thing he was going to do is give me my ring back.” Bowser allegedly said, “I don’t have nothing to lose and if you take anything from me you are going to see what happens.”

Teal-Bowser replied, “What’s going to happen?”

At this point, Bowser allegedly approached his estranged wife as she stood in the bathroom wearing a robe. The document says he pushed her with his stomach and put his finger to her face before saying, “I will bury you.”

The affidavit says he walked out of the bathroom and pulled a knife out of the nightstand near the bed. He flipped the knife open and said, “Call the police and I will execute your kids,” the document says.

“Call the police and I am going to execute whoever is up there,” he allegedly said from their first-floor bedroom.

Teal-Bowser asked whether he was going to kill her “No,” he replied, “I’m going to cut your a– up but I am going to execute the kids.”

The document says he put the knife back in the drawer and exited the bedroom. Teal-Bowser grabbed her keys out of her purse, picked up a phone and followed him into the family room. She snuck past him and called to the boys, who were in the second floor of the home. The document says Bowser sat down on the stairs while Teal-Bowser called 911.

As she spoke to an operator, Bowser repeatedly yelled, “She is lying! That’s a lie!” The boys sat at the top of the stairs as Bowser blocked their exit, the affidavit says.

“All of a sudden, he jumped up and ran to the master bedroom and I told the boys to, ‘Come fast! Let’s go!’ And we ran out the front door and the police were outside,” the document reads.

The boys ran to the sidewalk as the door opened behind them. The protective order says Bowser was arrested that night.
