Triple Shooting – Wounded – Woman (St. George, SC)

female

A woman was killed on her birthday when shots were fired at a club in St. George early Sunday morning. Two others were wounded.

The woman was killed about 2 a.m. at the Starlight Lounge at 243 Hudson Road, Dorchester County Chief Deputy Sam Richardson said. Two others were also shot at the club, he said. Deputies were working several leads Sunday.

Sierra Denise Truesdale, 23, of Harbor Lake Drive died after she was shot once in the right side, Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nisbet said. Sunday was her birthday.

A witness of the July 14 shooting said members of the Cowboys started the incident at the Starlite Lounge, located at 243 Hudson Road.  The man said the Cowboys put American flag bandanas over their faces and walked outside and started firing off rounds just before Truesdale was shot.

Truesdale was ducking behind a vehicle when she was caught in the crossfire, authorities say.  She died a short time later en route to the hospital.

Three other people, a man and two women, were also injured in the shooting. The man was shot in the upper right shoulder and the woman suffered gunshot wounds to her right forearm and midsection. The other female victim was grazed on the right side of her left foot, according to the report.

23-year-old Ikeal Dacus of Reevesville was charged with murder Wednesday.

Dacus was arrested in the death of Sierra Truesdale, a Trident Technical College student from Goose Creek who was celebrating her 23rd birthday at the Starlite Lounge early Sunday. Truesdale was hit when shots were fired at a group outside the club. Two other people were injured.

Triple Murder – Killed – Julie 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.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Casey Krebs (Cowan, IN)

Casey Krebs

COWAN, Ind. – Police on Sunday released details of an apparent murder-suicide that resulted in the deaths of a woman and her ex-boyfriend.

Delaware County sheriff’s Chief Deputy Jason Walker said the shooting happened Saturday evening in the community of Cowan, south of Muncie.

Police said Marty Reese came to the home of Casey Krebs a little after 6 p.m. and fired a warning shot into the ceiling before telling her to get on the floor.

Krebs was then shot in the back of the head before Reese turned the gun on himself, police said.

The bodies were discovered after neighbors saw Reese’s truck in the driveway and went to check on Krebs.

Police said the weapon used in the killing had been reported stolen and that Krebs’ current boyfriend had been in the home at the time Reese arrived.

Investigators said Krebs had asked her boyfriend to leave so she could talk to Reese.

COWAN, IN -  A case of love gone bad ended the life of a Cowan mother who was killed by her ex-boyfriend who then took his own life.

Casey D. Krebs, 32, who lived on County Road 600-W and Marty D. Reese, 53, Yorktown, were found dead in Krebs home Saturday night by a neighbor.

When County Sheriff Mike Scroggins and other sheriff’s deputies arrived, they found the two along with a handgun that Reese used to shoot Krebs and himself.

Reese used a stolen weapon to shoot Krebs, according to county police Cpl. Nancy Marvin, before shooting himself. He also had a history of drunk driving arrests.

The two had been dating and just broke up a month ago. And Krebs has two children by another man who were not there when the shooting occurred.

Friends of the couple said Reese  was upset by the breakup and still had alcohol problems. County police were still investigating the murder-suicide as the families prepare for funerals.

Killed – Doris Schobel (Cleveland, OH)

Doris Schobel

CLEVELAND, Ohio—The 31-year-old Cleveland man accused in the fatal shooting of 29-year-old Doris Schobel was wanted for failing to appear in court in April on domestic violence and other charges.

Maurice Brown was arrested Saturday afternoon near his home on East 65th Street minutes after the shooting occurred at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Metal Fabricating Corp. on Berea Road. He is now charged with aggravated murder.

Shobel was shot several times in the back and died at 3:55 p.m. at MetroHealth Medical Center.

Brown had been wanted since April 30, when he failed to appear in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court for arraignment in the domestic violence case that did not involve Schobel. The incident with another woman occurred March 4 in Cleveland and he was indicted April 16, according to the court’s website.

Brown was also wanted on charges of felonious assault, kidnapping and aggravated rioting brought by Cleveland Heights police in February. The arraignment on those charges was also April 30, when he failed to appear. The charges did not involve Schobel.

Brown was sentenced to four years in prison in April 2009 for stalking, burglary and attempted felonious assault. He was released on parole from the Lorain Correctional Institution in December 2012.

Brown also served three years for an aggravated burglary and kidnapping in 2004.

A grand jury has indicted a man on eight charges for the murder of his girlfriend shot dead at her job in Cleveland.

Double Shooting – Killed – Among Rajvong (Minneapolis, MN)

Among Rajvong

A drive-by gunman in north Minneapolis killed a woman with a shot to the head as she sat in a car, authorities said Tuesday.

Arnong Rajvong, 26, of Minneapolis, died Saturday after being shot early that morning near 26th and Washington Avenues N., according to the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office.

Another woman in the car with Rajvong was seriously wounded but is expected to survive, police said. No arrests have been made, and authorities have yet to say what led to the violence.

Shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday, emergency dispatchers received a call from someone in the vehicle, saying that friends had been shot, police said. There were four people in the car, police said.

Rajvong died at Hennepin County Medical Center early Saturday evening after being on life support since arrival, police said.

Rajvong’s brother, Kenny Rajvong, said he was told by a passenger in the vehicle that his sister had been picked up by a man he didn’t know Friday night when she went to a nearby bar, and at the end of the night she decided to leave the bar with her friends rather than the man who picked her up.

“He said something like ‘Why did you go with them?’ And my sister said ‘I’ll go with whoever I want to. I’ll meet up with you guys later,’ ” the brother said.

He was told two men sped up to the car and looked inside before firing toward Arnong Rajvong in the back seat.

Rajvong’s family is planning for her funeral. She leaves behind a 7-year-old son.

“I’m more hurt than angry,” Kenny Rajvong said. “My sister was only 26. She was my baby sister.”
