Triple Shooting – Killed – Dave Harrison (Harvey, LA)

male

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating a double homicide that happened just before midnight Tuesday in Harvey.

Deputies said at 11:58 p.m. they responded to reports of gunshots in the Woodmere subdivision in Harvey. They found the bodies of two unidentified males with multiple gunshot wounds inside a Chevrolet S-10 Blazer at 4012 Paige Janette Drive. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

A Waggaman man who was wounded during a shooting that left two college students dead in Harvey’s Woodmere subdivision remains hospitalized, partially paralyzed by a bullet that lodged near his spine, his attorney said Tuesday. Jeremy Coleman, who turned 20 just days after the shooting, is one of two defendants booked with murder in the deaths of Nikiayn Westerfield of Westwego and David Harrison of Gretna.

Westerfield and Harrison, both 19, were found dead in a sport utility vehicle in the 4000 block of Paige Jenette Drive. Authorities have not said how Coleman was wounded.

He was booked with murder after he showed up at West Jefferson Medical Center in Marrero with a gunshot wound. Also charged in the case is Irvin Harris, 20, of Harvey.

male

Hartford police have acknowledged that they might have missed a gunshot victim when they initially responded to reports of gunfire near Linnmore Street last night.

Police found nothing last night, but neighbors discovered a bullet-riddled body in a yard at 321 Linnmoore Street this morning.

The victim has been identified as Valentine Santos, 21, of Vernon. Santos died from gunshot wounds to the torso and extremeties, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Now investigators are saying the victim might have been overlooked at first pass.

Neighbors said they heard gunshots last night and called police around 10:30 p.m.

Brenda Oquendo, of Hartford, is one such neighbor.

“I heard seven to 10 shots like 10:30 in the night,” Osquendo said.

Killed – John David Tuck (Denver, CO)

male

DENVER — A Denver police officer shot and killed a man who was waving a knife at people in North Denver Tuesday morning.

Police said they received reports of a man waving a knife at passersby near the intersection of E. 29th Avenue and Downing Street around 11:20 a.m.

Denver Police Chief Robert White said responding officers tried to use pepper spray and a stun gun to subdue the man.

“Neither one of those had any effect on him,” White said.

Officers ordered the man to drop the knife and at one point he moved “towards the officers aggressively, at which time one of the officers fired several shots striking him,” White said.

He was taken to a hospital in critical condition and later died, police said.  The man’s name has not been released.

At that point, the the suspect started towards officers with the knife. Police say they fired several shots around 11:32 a.m.

And in August 2013, John David Tuck was shot dead by police after waving a knife at pedestrians on Welton Street and East 29th Avenue. As in the cases of Clementi and Dubois—and Sheehan—911 callers had made note of his apparent mental illness.
