Columbus, OH (NOV. 29, 2016) ~ USA -- Knife weilding suspect Abdul Razak Ali Artan was almost immediately shot by OSU police officer Alan Horujko. Horujko was immediately hailed as a hero by mainstream media. Horujko is perhaps a hero for ending a serious threat. However, it appears that mainstream media is not telling the entire story. Most significantly, several of the students injured during the attack were injured by Horujko’s poor marksmanship, not by Artan’s knife.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- (WCJB) ~ United States California officials fear dozens may have died in a massive fire that swept through an Oakland warehouse where a concert was taking place Friday night. Nine people have been confirmed dead, and dozens of others remain missing, officials said. In a news conference Saturday, authorities said they expected the death toll to rise, but they did not know by how much. “We’re expecting the worst — maybe a couple dozen victims here,” Sgt. Ray Kelly, spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, told reporters. “We did not have a lot of victims go to the hospital,” Kelly said. “It appears that people either made it out, or they didn’t make it out.”

EL CENTRO, CA (WCJB) ~ United States The El Centro Police Department said it's investigating a video that shows officers using force on a suspect who put several people in danger Tuesday afternoon. The video shows officers beating 23-year-old Elizardo Saenz, an El Centro resident. It also shows a K-9 police dog attacking Saenz. (Click here for video)


Oakland, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- A sex scandal involving Oakland police officers and a then underage girl has all the makings of a TV thriller. The saga is full of twists and turns. The scandal erupted months after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide. O'Brien left a note spilling the details, including names. Three Oakland officers were placed on paid leave. A source said O'Brien in his suicide note confessed to exchanging messages with a young woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. However, the note says he did not have sexual contact with her. The same sources said she has met multiple officers. In the note, O'Brien named the officers, including one sergeant, involved in the alleged sexual misconduct with Guap. Guap is the daughter of a Oakland police dispatcher. The police investigation will look at whether Guap was under age during some of the encounters with officers. (Click here for video)


New Orleans, LA (WCJB) ~ United States -- On September 4, 2005, New Orleans police received a call from an officer at Danziger Bridge reporting gunfire. Several NOPD officers—including Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, and Officer Robert Faulcon—arrived at the scene in a Budget rental truck. They proceeded to open fire with assault rifles and a shotgun on an unarmed family, the Bartholomews, who had been walking to a grocery store and were then sheltering behind a concrete barrier. 17-year-old James Brissette—a family friend—was killed, and four other people were wounded. The police shooters stated that while approaching the bridge, they had been fired on by civilians, and were forced to return fire. Homicide detective Arthur "Archie" Kaufman was made the lead investigator on the case. He was later found guilty of conspiring with the defendants to conceal evidence in order to make the shootings appear justified, including fabricating information for his official reports on the case. NOPD lieutenant Michael Lohman also encouraged the officers to "provide false stories about what had precipitated the shooting" and plant a firearm near the scene. (Click here for video)


Aiken, S.C. (WCJB) ~ United States -- A horrifying new dashcam video shows at least one white member of the Aiken, S.C. Police Department search inside a black man’s rectum for the apparent crime of being a passenger in a car with paper tags, which, it bears noting, is not a crime in the state of South Carolina. Driving a car with paper tags isn’t illegal either, as long as they aren’t expired. The car belonged to a woman named Lakeya Hicks, who had the paper tags because she had recently purchased the vehicle. Hicks’ tags weren’t expired, and a check on her license came up clean. However, the cops didn’t let her go. (Click here for video)


Brooklyn, NY (WCJB) ~ United States -- When an unmarked police car drove very close to mailman Glenn Grays in Brooklyn, Grays shouted at the car.

New York ~ United States -- Opening statements and testimony began this week in the long-awaited trial of New York City police officer Peter Liang for the killing of Akai Gurley, an unarmed 28-year-old African-American man walking down the stairs in his apartment building, part of the Louis H. Pink housing projects in the East New York section of Brooklyn. Jury selection in the case was completed last week. Gurley died more than 14 months ago, on November 20, 2014, as two cops were making a “vertical patrol,” checking the stairwells in the high-rise building. As Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney Marc Fliedner put it, opening the prosecution’s case, “Akai Gurley is dead today because he crossed paths with Peter Liang.” Liang was indicted by a Brooklyn grand jury on manslaughter and other charges last February, and both prosecution and defense agree on the immediate events that led to Gurley’s death.(Click here for video)

Chicago, IL -- Surveillance video (Click here for video) in connection with a Chicago police officer's fatally shooting 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman was released today by attorneys for the teen's family. A federal judge ordered the release of footage showing the 2013 shooting today after the city withdrew its objection to its being made public. Chicago police officer Kevin Fry fatally shot Chatman Jan. 7, 2013, in broad daylight during a foot chase, according to court records. Chatman’s family had fought for the video to be released as part of a wrongful death lawsuit they filed over the shooting against the city, Fry and Chicago police officer Lou Toth, who pursued Chatman along with Fry during the foot chase. Family members have argued the video will counter the city and police’s narrative that the 17-year-old was a danger to police. IPRA concluded the officers' actions were justified because they reasonably believed Chatman was armed at the time.

Brooklyn, NY -- A newly-released surveillance video (Click here for video) contradicts an undercover NYPD police officer who arrested four people in Brooklyn for allegedly trying to rob him on Dec. 26, 2015, according to a defense lawyer. Jean Scott, 33; Peterson Duplan, 28; Ricardi Joseph, 29; and Samantha Dabel, 24, said that they were approached by a man who tried to buy drugs from them at a hardware store. The undercover cop was identified as Winston McDonald, who testified in court that Duplan allegedly flashed a switchblade at him outside of the store, and said, "Give me your money or I will stab you," according to court papers.

Forth Worth, TX -- The mother of ‘affluenza’ teen Ethan Couch was ordered released from a Tarrant County jail cell after a bond hearing this afternoon. She may be leaving the jail soon. Judge Wayne Salvant ordered her bond reduced to $75,000 with several conditions. The conditions include weekly visits with the Community Supervisions and Corrections Department of Tarrant County. She is also not to consume alcoholic beverages or use social media. “Let’s look at it for what it is, I understand everyone is concerned and there is outrage in the community… but as a judge I have to look at the law,” said Judge Salvant. Couch and her lawyers were present at a 2 p.m. bond hearing at the Tarrant County Justice Center hoping to have her bond reduced. It was originally set at $1 million since she was charged with Hindering Apprehension of a Felon. (Click here for video)

Salt Lake City, Utah -- Exactly one year after a man was shot and killed during an altercation with a Salt Lake City Police Department officer, a former Davis County Sheriff says new video (Click here for video)footage indicates the officer's actions may not have been justified.

Philadelphia, PA ~ USA -- Corrupt Justice™ has obtained a video (Click here for video) of the police shooting that took place Thursday night at 60th and Spruce streets.

Stunningly, Hartnett can be seen in the video getting out of his patrol car and chasing down the shooter after being ambushed. Officials say Hartnett is in critical but stable condition.

Miami, FL ~ USA -- A Florida jury began weighing on Tuesday whether a man who killed his wife and posted a photo of her blood-spattered, lifeless body on Facebook committed first-degree murder. Attorneys for Derek Medina, 33, argued that he was acting in self-defense when he fired eight shots at Jennifer Alfonso, 27, in the kitchen of their Miami-area residence. The August 2013 shooting followed a fight in which she had threatened to leave, prosecutors said during closing statements. They argued that Medina retrieved a .380-caliber pistol from his bedroom and pulled the trigger repeatedly in a premeditated act of murder. "Every single shot hit her because he was aiming and he wanted her dead," said Assistant State Attorney Leah Klein in Miami-Dade County circuit court. Medina wrote on Facebook shortly before turning himself in: "I'm going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife. My wife was punching me, and I am not going to stand any more with the abuse so I did what I did," he added in the post. (Click here for video)

Montgomery County, Pa. -- Bill Cosby, the comedian and entertainer once known as “America’s dad”, appeared in court (Click here for video) to face his first criminal charge for sexual misconduct on Wednesday, for an incident in which he allegedly drugged and violated a woman who considered him to be her mentor.

Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison for each charge.

Oklahoma City OK ~ USA -- A former Oklahoma City police officer was convicted Thursday of 18 of the 36 counts he faced, including four counts of first-degree rape, related to accusations that he victimized 13 women on his police beat in a minority, low-income neighborhood. Daniel Holtzclaw, 29, sobbed (Click here for video) as the verdict was read aloud. He could spend the rest of his life in prison based on the jury's recommendations, which include a 30-year sentence on each of the first-degree rape counts.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Multnomah County parole and probation officer Jani McCord is a 12-year veteran with a caseload of sex offenders, but Jeremy Peter Goulet stood out in her mind. Goulet, 35, who last week killed two Santa Cruz police officers, was assigned to McCord after being accused in 2007 of peeping on a 22-year-Portland woman and firing a gun during a fight with the victim's boyfriend. A jury acquitted him of three felony charges, finding him guilty on two misdemeanors, but a judge still ordered Goulet to undergo treatment. Almost immediately, McCord knew Goulet was trouble. Combative from the start and concerning due to his military background, Goulet once sparked an incident where he refused to leave the Portland Department of Community Justice premises and was confronted by about 10 probation officers. "I knew (treatment) wouldn't go well."

Probation officers by nature deal with difficult characters, and documents show Multnomah County officials taking a firm stance against a client who clearly did not think he needed treatment. It does not appear Goulet ever made it into therapy before being hauled back before a judge. Probation reports from Portland describe Goulet as someone who "spent a lot of time in angry rumination." The former Army pilot, who was trained as a military policeman while in the Marine Corps Reserve, once noted to authorities at his probation office that security there was lax. He even made a thinly veiled weapons threat against McCord.


"He was concerning from the get-go. It is not normal for me to see someone the day after his intake, and I saw him the day after his intake," McCord said. "He was somebody I thought could come to my house and kill me," McCord said, days after the Feb. 26 shooting in Santa Cruz. McCord even went so far as to show Goulet's picture, and a picture of his truck, to her neighbors, asking them to be alert -- something she hadn't done before, and hasn't done since. And she brought her weapon home. "I was very concerned. I don't typically take my gun home, and I took my gun home quite a few times" while supervising Goulet, McCord said.

During two months, probation officials made four visits to Goulet's then-Northwest Portland home. Uncooperative and confrontational, reports say Goulet acted in ways similar to what Santa Cruz police say happened last Tuesday, when Goulet refused to open his door before ambushing Sgt. Loran "Butch" Baker and detective Elizabeth Butler. After yelling at probation officers during one home visit and generally being uncooperative, Goulet was arrested. At first he resisted handcuffs, twisting his arms to try to get away from McCord and her partner. "He wanted to be in control. He didn't want home visits," McCord said. "It reminded me so much of what happened (in Santa Cruz)."

When hauled before Portland Judge Erich Bloch, Goulet declined further treatment. Bloch gave him a stiff sentence -- maximum one-year penalties for each of the two misdemeanors, stringing them back-to-back. Despite the two-year sentence, Goulet would not have been prohibited from gun ownership. Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark believes more alarms should have been raised based on what is now known about Goulet's past, questioning the lack of a felony conviction or other penalty that would have prevented Goulet's lawful ownership of a gun. "It's outrageous," Clark said.

Since last week's shooting, Goulet's family has stated that he had peeping compulsions, and Goulet was convicted of peeping-related misdemeanors in San Diego, Portland and Berkeley. But records show a more violent streak as well, discharging the weapon in Portland case and later acting combative toward and even physically struggling with Portland authorities. And Goulet's father recently said his son vowed never to be taken into custody again.

In 2006, military prosecutors in Hawaii brought Goulet up on successive rape charges against female military officers. But those charges were dropped in a exchange for a less-than-honorable discharge, after which Goulet made his way to Portland and, eventually, Santa Cruz. Last week, media sources filed a Freedom of Information Act request related to the dropped court martials. Army officials have not returned numerous requests for comment.

Local investigators also have requested those records -- which appear to have been unknown to Baker and Butler at the time of the deadly encounter, which ended with Goulet's death as well -- as they prepare a report on the shooting. McCord said she had copies of them in her files on Goulet, but there was nothing to alert the officers to that fact.

Not Guilty!

Posted: 11:57 p.m., Wednesday, May 16, 2012 - Updated: 1:03 a.m., Thursday, May 17, 2012

Houston, Texas -- Former Houston police officer Andrew Blomberg was found “not guilty” Wednesday after spending weeks on trial for his role in the 2010 police beating of Chad Holley, which was caught on video that shocked Houston, including the mayor and police chief. Blomberg, 29, is white; the teenage victim, Chad Holley, is black.

Outside the courtroom, black activists had tears streaming down their cheeks as they exploded with angry shouts alleging racism and corruption because the case was decided by a jury of six white people.

Andre Bloomberg, an ex-Houston Police Officer, looks into the audience before his trial for beating a teenage burglary suspect Thursday, May 3, 2012, in the Harris County Criminal Justice Center in Houston. Blomberg, 29, is the first of the four former police officers to stand trial in the alleged attack that was caught on video.

“They knew what they were doing with an all-white jury,” shouted community activist Quanell X. “Nobody believes any of the other trials are any good either.”

To pick six jurors and an alternate for the misdemeanor trial, prosecutors and Blomberg's defense team had a 60-person pool fill out questionnaires. As in a capital murder trial, the questionnaires were graded and prospective jurors were questioned individually, winnowing the pool to 19 people. It took about a week. Of those 19 people, two were black and were struck from the pool by Blomberg's attorneys. One said he had been arrested several times unjustifiably, and the other was an employee of the Harris County district attorney's office, said a defense attorney.

“The [...] reality is that it is very hard to convict a police officer,” a professor at South Texas School of Law said. “Because a police officer begins a trial with a powerful presumption of legitimacy and propriety.”

Holley's attorney, as well as Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, called for the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. attorney's office in Houston to take over the prosecution. The U.S. attorney's office did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

Houston, Texas -- Four Houston police officers are accused of brutally beating a teenager Chad Holley during an arrest in 2010. The beating was captured on video. Despite efforts by Houston Mayor Annise Parker and Houston police Chief Charles McClelland to keep the videotape from becoming public, community activist Quanell X and local television stations exposed the tape. The recording shows a police cruiser clipping Holley as he hurdles the hood to avoid a chain link fence. The teen who flips over on his stomach and puts his hands behind his head as several officers descend on him as they take turns kicking and stomping him.

On Monday, a trial for one of the officers began. Andrew Blomberg is charged with official oppression, a misdemeanor that could earn the officer up to one year in jail. Blomberg is the first of four former officers to go to trial for their behavior during the arrest. Trials are pending for Phil Bryan, Raad Hassan and Drew Ryser, all of whom were fired. Bryan and Hassan also were charged with violation of the civil rights of a prisoner, a misdemeanor.

Attorneys for Holley said Blomberg was the first to begin beating the teen, then a 15-year-old Elsik High sophomore, creating a "snowball effect" that led to a barrage of fists and boots. "The beating starts with Blomberg," said one of Holley's attorneys. "Whether it is one lick, five licks, whatever, someone started this slew of attacks on Chad." He said the beating injured Holley's brain, slowing his cognitive capacity. "That's going to be a lifelong difficulty," he said. "This is just a horrible example of conduct that goes too far," he said. "I'm just glad that some court is moving forward in prosecution of some of these claims," he added.

Defense lawyers for Blomberg claim he was trying to detain several suspects fleeing a burglary scene without drawing his gun.

LAS VEGAS, NV - Questions are surfacing about a Metro Police officer's use of deadly force twice in less than a year. Early Saturday morning, Metro Police say they tried to talk Sharmel Edwards out of a car for 30 minutes. Police say she pointed a gun at police, prompting five officers to shoot her. When those officers' names were released Monday, one name stood out to a local attorney who is already suing Metro. The Attorney is speaking about Christopher Grivas, a 31-year-old police officer who's been on the force since 2005. "A police officer's got a tough job. We all know that," the attorney said. "It's going to be fully investigated, but it is concerning. I got to tell you. It's a very strange coincidence." Grivas fired his gun in this latest officer-involved shooting Saturday. He also used deadly force July 14, 2011, killing 23-year-old Rafael Olivas. Rafael's mother called police after an argument. She requested the Crisis Intervention Team respond, so his medical condition - an ulcer - would not act up under stress. Rafael grabbed a kitchen knife and went outside. Police say they used a less-than-lethal shotgun on a knife-wielding Rafael, but they say he kept closing in on the officers. Officer Grivas and another officer opened fire, killing him. The family believes this death could have been prevented. Depending on what happens in court, the taxpayers may have to pay for Rafael's death. The attorney represents Olivas' mother Alma Chavez.

Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak says he's not questioning this particular officer's actions until all the facts come out, but he believes it's time to track officers by any lawsuit settlements they may be involved in. "Something can happen the first time, but the second, third, fourth, fifth time potentially, you got to start asking questions, the hard questions, in terms of, 'Okay, why does this keep happening? Why is there a pattern?' It's not an isolated one-time situation," he said. Sisolak says a tracking system shouldn't just apply to big dollar settlements like officer-involved shootings, but also traffic accidents. Ultimately, he says this will help get officers any new training they may need. In Saturday's deadly confrontation with Sharmel Edwards, police say she pointed a gun at the officers. They say a gun was found near her body. Five officers, including Officer Grivas, are on paid administrative leave. The Las Vegas Metro Police Dept. has identified all five officers involved in Saturday's shooting in the 2300 block of Jones. They are

•» Melvyn F. English,
•» Todd G. Edwards,
•» Christopher M. Grivas,
•» Matthew J. Cook and
•» Truong T. Thai.

The officers have been with Metro ranging from six to 20 years. As for the lawsuit involving the Rafael Olivas death, Metro is not commenting on the litigation.

Search Warrant! Shots Fired!

Pictured right, a 2006 booking photo provided by the Portsmouth, N.H., Police Department shows Cullen Mutrie, suspected of killing Greenland, N.H., Police Chief Michael Maloney and wounding four other officers Thursday, April 12, 2012, before he was found dead along with a female acquaintance (pictured left) early Friday morning. Greenland, N.H. (WCJB) -- Cullen Mutrie was the target of the final drug bust that Greenland's slain police chief, Michael Maloney, was planning before he retired after more than a quarter-century in law enforcement. Maloney had 26 years of experience in law enforcement, the last 12 as chief of the Greenland department. "I have nine more working days left," Maloney told a Board of Selectmen meeting Monday night, "and I have one more item I'm going to clear up." Trying to rid a neighborhood of its menace just days before retirement proved to be the 48-year-old chief's final act.

Police tried to serve a search warrant at a Greenland home, when Mutrie inside the home, opened fire, killing the chief and wounding four officers. Maloney and the four other officers, all detectives from other departments, were part of a drug task force run by the state attorney general's office. They arrived at Mutrie's house at 6 p.m. Thursday, search warrant in hand. Mutrie was ready, authorities said, opening fire as police tried to gain entry.

Across the street, neighbor Michael Gordon said he realized the gravity of the situation when he heard a loud popping sound and saw a downed officer — Maloney — and realized that no one was rushing to assist him. Gordon herded his frightened boys and his wife to the back of the house and lay on the floor. Eventually they crawled to the basement, where they spent a long, tense night. Authorities spoke to Mutrie from outside the home a short time after the shooting, but things soon went silent, Delaney said. Around 2 a.m., a tactical team placed a robot equipped with a video camera in the home, and it detected the bodies of Mutrie and Brittany Tibbetts, a 26-year-old cosmetologist who had dated the gunman on and off. Both died of gunshot wounds to the head in what's been ruled a murder-suicide, authorities said Saturday.

Two of the wounded officers were treated for gunshot wounds and released. The two others were hospitalized with gunshot wounds to the chest.

Brittany was shot to death Thursday, her mother, Donna Tibbetts of Berwick, Maine, said. Her mother said Brittany had gone to Mutrie in recent days to help him sort through issues that were upsetting him. Donna Tibbetts said the pair dated off and on for about a year and a half. They were broken up and her daughter had moved back home, but "he in the last few days had some sort of issues that were upsetting him and she went back to try and help." She said her daughter, an award-winning high school softball pitcher who was Maine Player of the Year in 2003-2004, went on to be trained and to work as a cosmetologist. "We had only met him a few times," she said of Mutrie. "He was nice enough to us. We might have had some concerns, but we just basically thought that Brittany was a big girl and it had to be left up to her. It was her choice. She cared about him. She must have seen something good in him. That was the type of girl she was. ... I don't want her life to be defined by this one thing because she was a beautiful, caring girl."

The hulking, 6-foot-2, 260-pound Mutrie lived along a busy street near Interstate 95 and had long been a thorn in the neighborhood's side, working on loud motorcycles and playing music deep into the night. He did odd jobs and helped with his mother's printing business, said Donna Tibbetts. He hoped to become a firefighter, Tibbetts said. Mutrie, 29, grew up in Hampton Falls, and no one answered the door at his mother’s home Friday. Hampton Falls fire chief Jay Lord said Mutrie was a volunteer firefighter from 2004 to July 2010. He said Mutrie was nice and polite and left the department on good terms to pursue paramedic school. Lord said he hadn't spoken to Mutrie since November 2010, and at that time, Mutrie was working construction.

A search of Mutrie’s court records shows a violent criminal history prior to Thursday evening’s shooting. Anabolic steroids were once found in his home after he was arrested on domestic assault charges and officers entered to confiscate guns, the local media reported last year.

In December 2003, court documents state that Mutrie’s ex-girlfriend was granted a protective order against him after she claimed Mutrie, "forcefully grabbed me, choked me and pulled my hair … as well as pushed me down several times." The woman also said Mutrie was "threatening," was "prone to jealous rages" and indicated he had guns and knives in his possession. On Dec. 12, 2003, she accused Mutrie of calling her, "intoxicated in a rage, asking where I was and verbally abusing me. I then woke up on Dec. 13 to find two of my car tires slashed," she wrote, "I am very scared of him because of our history and his explosive behavior and past history of violence."

Court documents from Nov. 10, 2006, indicate Mutrie was charged with two counts of simple assault for punching a man in the face and head at a Portsmouth restaurant. Mutrie was found guilty of disorderly conduct and was ordered to have no contact with the victim. He was also ordered to take part in anger management evaluation and treatment.

In July 2010, another woman, who identified Mutrie as her "boyfriend" in a police report, was granted an order of protection after she said Mutrie grabbed her by the hair, dragged her to her car and slammed her head on the hood. Documents state that when police responded to Mutrie’s home to serve the order of protection and retrieve his firearms, they found steroids and steroid paraphernalia. Mutrie was charged with nine counts of possession of controlled/narcotic drugs. He was also charged with simple assault in the incident. Mutrie was given a 30-day suspended sentence and was ordered to undergo an anger management evaluation.

Lee Miller, who lives next door to where the shootings took place, told media that she had complained to police repeatedly about suspected drug activity at the house and had been told it was under investigation. "The neighborhood was raped by him. He came in and took over. And that was the end of our lives. There were fights out there at three, four o'clock in the morning," she said. "I moved my bed all around the room to get away from the window that faces the driveway. I said the next place I'm going to be sleeping is the bathtub." Miller said Mutrie had lived in the house for seven years.

Unlawful Detainer!

Posted: April 12, 2012 | 2:02 pm PDT - Updated: April 25, 2012 | 03:59 am PDT

Modesto, CA -- Deputy Robert Paris (pictured left) and a civilian were shot dead Thursday morning and the suspect has barricaded himself inside his residence. Sheriff Adam Christianson confirmed Paris was fatally shot in the 2100 block of Chrysler Drive just west of Prescott Road and south of West Rumble Road some time around 11 a.m. Officers from the Modesto Police Department and Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department received the radio call for “Officer Needs Assistance” in the 2100 block of Chrysler Dr in Modesto just before 11:00 AM Thursday morning. Officers arrived to find 53-year-old Deputy Paris and Glendon Engert, a 35-year-old locksmith, had both been struck by gunfire. Engert and Deputy Paris were later pronounced dead.

“Deputy Paris paid the ultimate price, sacrificing his life, while protecting and serving the citizens of Stanislaus County,” said Christianson. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob’s family, the community, our sheriff’s family and all the law enforcement personnel from every jurisdiction in the central valley who come to our aid today.” Christianson also said a civilian was shot to death in the incident. Neighbors say the civilian may have been a locksmith helping with an eviction. The sheriff confirmed his deputies were executing an eviction.

An eyewitness said she heard knocking on the door and then about 10 shots ring out. “At first we just heard knocking, then we heard gun shots and bullets coming out of the door,” Keani Hosino said. “It was pretty nuts.” “They were just laying there for the longest time till SWAT came and then they picked them up and dragged them away,” she said of the victims. “They were throwing smoke bombs inside, gas bombs. Only like afterwards they let us out because we are right across the street from what happened.”

Another neighbor said he saw the suspect (pictured left) walking around the area in military fatigues at night. “I really can’t call him scary, but he be dressed in a military uniform and walks around the block, stuff like that,” Curtis Dapson said. The pictures are jarring; Jim Ferrario is dressed up looking like a well-armed cop from head to toe. He’s wearing a badge, vest, handgun, and rifle while posing for the camera. Then there are pictures of Ferrario smiling in photos dated 2005. The anonymous former friend who sent the pictures writes: “Jimmy had a good side about him. He was a nice guy – easygoing and would help people any chance he’d get.” Even in the seconds after the April 12, double murder, law enforcement was already well aware of Ferrario’s military background. And he had no intention of giving up.

Late Thursday evening, a fire broke out in the home of the suspect, Jim Ferrario (pictured left). Around 9pm officers at the scene reported a fire starting inside the complex. Modesto Fire Department was on the scene to assist with the fire. Crews were able to contain the fire to prevent it from spreading to any neighboring apartment complexes. During the time the fire was burning officers still attempted to communicate with the suspect with no response. Eventually the fire was extinguished just before 2am Friday morning. The suspect, Jim Ferrario, had not emerged from inside at this point. Officers maintained a perimeter around the residence while fire officials continued to put out “hot-spots” until approximately 9am yesterday morning. At that time investigators from the Modesto Police Department, Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department, and the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms Bureau (ATF) began examining the crime scene. Fire officials deemed the house unsafe during the first few hours of the crime scene evaluation, but officials from ATF were eventually able to make entry into the residence. Once inside ATF officials confirmed they had located a deceased body inside the apartment complex.

OGDEN!

Thu Jan 5, 2012 5:10pm EST

OGDEN, Utah - Six police officers were shot, one of them fatally, when a gunman said to be a U.S. Army veteran opened fire on them as they served a drug-related search warrant in Utah, authorities said on Thursday. The gunman fired on the officers late on Wednesday as they approached a home in a quiet residential neighborhood of Ogden, north of Salt Lake City, Ogden police Lieutenant Danielle Croyle said. "We have lost a brother. We will grieve this loss, he will be sorely missed," Weber County Sheriff Terry Thompson said of local drug task force agent Jared Francom, who was pronounced dead on Thursday. The shooting in Ogden, a city of more than 82,000 people about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City, also occurred on Mayor Mike Caldwell's first day on the job, who said it made for "an overwhelming first day in office."

Neighbors reported hearing shots ring out. Shayne Blakeley, 43, who lives two blocks away from the shooting scene, said he was out walking his yellow Labrador at the time. "I was walking down the street and I heard about 12 shots go off," he said. "Then all of the cops started to arrive." He counted at least 21 police vehicles at the scene, adding: "It shouldn't happen in our neighborhood
."

Police identified the suspected gunman as 37-year-old Matthew Stewart (pictured left) and said he was under guard at a hospital where he was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries suffered when officers returned fire. Ogden police chief Wayne Tarwater said Stewart had a limited criminal history, but did not elaborate.

A woman who lives two houses down from Stewart described him as "really quiet". "We'd see each other across the yard and say hello," said Jerri Johnson, a mother of three, adding she knew Stewart was a military veteran and believed he had served in Iraq. Johnson, who was home when she heard the shooting begin, said that as a reflex she opened her front door after hearing the commotion outside. "I saw three police officers on my front lawn. One had already been shot and was lying on the lawn. The other two were trying to get him help," she said. "It was unbelievable, the amount of gunfire." After telling her children, aged 8, 10 and 14, to get down on the floor of the bedroom, she saw officers drag the wounded policeman across her lawn as bullets flew.

A U.S. Army spokesman said Stewart was on active duty in the Army from 1994 to 1998 but could not confirm if he had also served in Iraq. Police released few details of the incident that broke out in the quiet, residential neighborhood after a "knock and announce" drug-related search warrant by the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Task Force, a visibly shaken Tarwater said. Three Ogden police officers remained in critical condition at McKay-Dee Hospital, spokesman Chris Dallin said, while a Weber County Sheriff's sergeant was in stable condition. An agent with the Roy Police Department was treated at Ogden Regional Medical Center and released, the hospital said. Federal officers from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were at the scene of the crime on Thursday, but would not comment to reporters.

Mount Rainier!

Posted: Mon. JAN 2, 2012 12:30 PM PST - Updated: Tues. January 3, 2012 11:34 AM PST

Mount Rainier National Park -- National park officials said Monday afternoon that the man found dead in Washington's Mount Rainier National Park is Benjamin Colton Barnes (pictured left) the suspect in the shooting death of park ranger Margaret Anderson the previous day. Barnes was found around 10:45 a.m. Monday, dressed in a T-shirt and jeans, and lying face-down in a creek near the base of a waterfall in an area popular among hikers. Search teams reached him and positively identified him later Monday, Chief Ranger Chuck Young said. Authorities had launched a massive manhunt across steep, snow-covered and wooded terrain for the 24-year-old Army veteran following the fatal New Year's Day shooting of park ranger Margaret Anderson.

Barnes also was wanted in connection with a shooting Sunday in the Seattle suburb of Skyway that left four people wounded, media affiliates reported, citing the King County sheriff's department. All the weapons that Barnes had with him when he allegedly shot Anderson and then fled are believed to be accounted for, said Ed Troyer, a spokesman for the Pierce County sheriff's department. Authorities expressed confidence that the danger is over now that Barnes has been found dead.

Barnes, a private first class, was discharged from the Army for misconduct in 2009 after he was charged with drunken driving and improperly transporting a privately owned weapon at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. Lewis-McChord has drawn national attention for widespread problems with post-traumatic stress disorder among service members returning from Afghanistan and from Iraq, where Barnes served in 2007 and 2008. The base, near Tacoma about 50 miles south of Seattle, has seen numerous violent incidents, leading to several charges and convictions of soldiers for serious crimes.
