Plano teen arrested for planning ISIS-inspired mass shooting at mall
By Alisha Ebrahimji | WFAA.com | Updated: 1:02 PM CDT May 2, 2018


Image

A Plano teenager was arrested for planning and trying to recruit others to commit an ISIS-inspired mass shooting at a Texas shopping mall, Stonebriar.

According to authorities, Plano West High School student Matin Azizi-Yarand, 17, planned the attack for mid-May after being inspired by ISIS. At the time of his arrest, Azizi-Yarand sent more than $1,400 to others for the purchase of weapons and tactical gear.

Azizi-Yarand had been talking online with an undercover FBI confidential human source about his desire to either "make Hijrah [travel]," or to conduct a terroristic attack within the United States.

Through several conversations online, it was uncovered that Azizi-Yarand wanted to act as a lone wolf. He wanted to wait until he was 18 to carry out this attack so he could purchase a rifle himself, according to affidavits.

"I've only been reading ISIS magazine guides for performing operations and making bombs," Azizi-Yarand told the undercover federal agent.

Affidavits show throughout several other online conversations, Azizi-Yarand sent the agent various types of ISIS propaganda.

"I'd like to actually make a cop surrender and drop his gun, then douse him with gasoline and burn him ... record it," Azizi-Yarand said during talks about the mall shooting.

Under Texas state law, if convicted Azizi-Yarand could face up to life in prison for criminal solicitation and up to 10 years for making a terroristic threat.

Authorities say he had written and planned to release what he called a “Message to America,” which explained the reasons for his attack.

The Latest: Official: Explosion being probed as intentional
By Michael Balsamo, LA | Associated Press | May 15, 2018

ALISO VIEJO, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on an explosion that rocked a Southern California office building (all times local):

9 p.m.
A U.S. official says a deadly explosion at a Southern California office building is being investigated as an intentional act and investigators believe the blast may have come from a package.

One woman was killed and three others were injured during the Tuesday afternoon explosion at a medical office building in Aliso Viejo.

The official said the information was based on a preliminary investigation. Investigators said they hadn’t yet located an explosive device and were searching through debris.

The official was briefed on the investigation but wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Agents from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were at the scene Tuesday night.

Sheriff’s officials said the size of blast made it suspicious.

Teen charged in death of Baltimore County officer; remaining three teen suspects also in custody
By Jessica Anderson | Baltimore Sun | May 22, 2018

Image

Baltimore County police said a 16-year-old has been arrested and charged as an adult in the death of a police officer on Monday, and three other suspects — all teenage males — are in custody.

Court records show the 16-year-old is Dawnta Anthony Harris, of the 1600 block of Vincent Court, in the Gilmor Homes complex in West Baltimore. He is charged with first-degree murder and is expected to appear in Towson district court for a bail review hearing Tuesday afternoon. He did not have an attorney listed in online court records, and family members could not be immediately reached for comment.

The department identified the officer who was killed as Amy Caprio, a four-year veteran of the force assigned to the Parkville precinct.

The documents say Caprio was responding to a call at about 2 p.m. Monday on Linwen Way to investigate a suspicious vehicle in the area. A 911 caller reported a black Jeep Wrangler near her home, and said three “suspicious subjects got out of it and were walking around homes.” The caller then said the suspects had broken into the home and the first arriving officer was on the ground after confronting the driver of the Jeep.

The search for the remaining suspects, whom police considered armed and dangerous, extended into the evening and left nearly 2,000 students stranded in their schools until parents were allowed to pick them up at about 7:30 p.m.

Police would not confirm whether the Jeep had been stolen, but they believe it was also involved in an earlier burglary.

Detectives have verified that the group were involved in burglaries in the area, police said. Officers were reporting to the area Tuesday to canvass for property stolen during the burglaries.
[...]
Tony Kurek, 54, had just walked in the door of his home when his son, Dakota, shouted for him. “ ‘Dad, Dad, a cop just got run over out front,’ ” the father recalled his son saying.

The officer was lying in the road in front of his house, he said. Dakota told his father he had seen the officer draw her gun on a black Jeep Wrangler and ordered the people inside to get out.

Instead, the driver sped forward, ramming the officer with the vehicle. She landed about 20 feet away. “She basically landed almost in front of my mailbox,” Kurek said.

By Jon Herskovitz | Reuters | May 25, 2018


A student armed with two handguns shot a teacher and a fellow student at a middle school in Indiana on Friday, police said, the latest in a series of shootings at U.S. schools and colleges fueling debate about how to keep campuses safe.

The teacher who was shot swatted the guns away from the student and wrestled him to the ground, protecting other students in his science class, witnesses told local media.

The suspect had excused himself from class at Noblesville West Middle School and came back armed with the pistols and opened fire. Police apprehended him in the classroom.
[...]
Local media said the Noblesville student who was shot was a 13-year-old girl.

The teacher was identified as Jason Seaman by the Indianapolis Star and other local media. Seaman’s mother said on Facebook her son was shot through the abdomen, in the hip and in the forearm, and was undergoing surgery.

'Do You Want Beaumont to Become Another Austin' Bombing Suspect Wrote: Investigators
By Cody Lillich | NBCDFW | May 25, 2018


A series of notes found with explosive devices led to the arrest of a Beaumont man accused of placing the devices, one of which exploded at a southeast Texas church.

Authorities announced the arrest of 40-year-old Jonathan Matthew Torres in connection to several devices found around the city since April.

Federal investigators found postcards next to the devices that contained notes from the alleged bomb maker. A device left outside a Beaumont Starbucks had a note on an index card stating "HAJI DIE USA -JH"

The day after the Starbucks device was discovered, police said they received a note that read "DO YOU WANT BMT (Beaumont) TO BECOME ANOTHER AUSTIN" referencing the series of explosions in Austin that killed two people.

Earlier this month, a device exploded at the St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Beaumont. Investigators said the remnants were similar to the device that was not exploded at the Starbucks in April.

The day following the church blast, police said they received a postcard appearing to be from the same sender as the previous note. The postcard had an image of "V for Vendetta" from DC Comics and writing said, "WOULD YOU LIKE TO PLAY A GAME? JH."

The police department would receive two more postcards over the next week, one with an image from the "Creature from the Black Lagoon" and the other from "The Atom." The postcards asked police, "There were two others. Did you not get them?" and "None of these have been deemed a credible threat."

Basically Dixon made a general claim that the trooper made inappropriate physical contact with her, to a detention officer and in a telephone conversation. By Texas law, she had to make a claim to a peace officer in order to bring charges against her. In addition, there is another DPS Trooper with the same name in a different area of Texas, who has received death threats this week. :doh A DPS Trooper is the top of the line as far as Law Enforcement in Texas. I hope this Trooper sues the pants off Shaun King.

No Additional Charges Against Woman Who Made Up Story About Trooper Sex Assault
CBSLocal.com | May 25, 2018, 7:15PM CT


Image

WAXAHACHIE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The Ellis County District Attorney’s Office announced Friday evening, Sherita Dixon-Cole will not be charged beyond her DWI arrest after she said she was sexually assaulted by a DPS trooper, when she was not.

Here is a statement from Ellis County DA Patrick Wilson’s Office.

    This office shares the outrage felt by the general public for the blatantly false and malicious allegations made by Sherita Dixon-Cole against the Texas Highway Patrol trooper who arrested her for driving while intoxicated on Sunday, May 20, 2018. However, no criminal charges will be filed against Dixon-Cole for her conduct. We know this decision will frustrate many in the public who have called for criminal charges against Ms. Dixon-Cole as both a punishment to her and as a deterrent to others who may make false and damaging allegations against the peace officers who protect all of us. We share the public’s frustration. In making any decision to charge a crime, this office is bound by the facts and the law. To help the public understand our decision in this matter, we are providing a detailed analysis of the facts and law.

Dixon-Cole was arrested for DWI and then retained the services of Dallas Civil Rights Attorney Lee Merritt. Merritt hastily called a news conference and then cancelled it while local media waited for him to explain the claims.

Video released by DPS showed the trooper behaving in a courteous and professional manner after Dixon-Cole’s claim gained national attention.

Merritt later apologized for his role in elevating the false claim, writing, “It is deeply troubling when innocent parties are falsely accused and I am truly sorry for any trouble these claims may have caused… I take full responsibility for amplifying these claims to the point of national concern.”

Merritt’s posts on the woman’s claims were quickly picked up by New York-based activist and radio contributor Shaun King. King then told listeners, “I have a horrible story to bring you about a woman named Sherita Dixon-Cole.”

He went on to repeat claims that the trooper offered to release Dixon-Cole in exchange for sexual favors and then sexually assaulted her when she refused. He also accused the trooper, apparently based on Dixon-Cole’s account, of threatening to kill her fiancee who arrived on the scene if she told him about what happened. Except that it didn’t happen– and the body camera footage shows that her account was completely fabricated.

Ex-CIA officer convicted of spying for China: U.S. Justice Department
By Reuters Staff | Updated June 8, 2018, 5:33PM


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A federal jury on Friday convicted a former CIA case officer on espionage charges for passing classified documents to China, the U.S. Justice Department said.

The jury in Virginia found Kevin Mallory, 61, guilty of delivery of defense information to aid a foreign government and other charges, and he faces a maximum penalty of life in prison when sentenced on Sept. 21, the department said in a statement.

A U.S. official familiar with the case said it was a serious security breach that highlighted aggressive efforts by Chinese intelligence to gather sensitive American secrets.
[...]
Mallory had worked as a covert case officer for the CIA and an intelligence officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency. His security clearance was terminated when he left government service in 2012, the statement said.

Last week officials arrested Ron Hansen, a former officer with the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, in Washington state for allegedly trying to spy on the United States for China.

Earlier this year, former CIA case officer Jerry Chun Shing Lee was indicted for conspiring to gather or deliver national defense information to China.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A Wyandotte County sheriff's deputy is dead and another is in critical condition after they were shot near the county courthouse Friday morning.

Officials say that Deputy Patrick Rohrer, 35, was killed in the shooting. He was a seven-year veteran of the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office.

Major Kelli Bailiff with the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office said at 11:30 a.m. two deputies were transporting inmates to court. They pulled into the parking lot, ready to transport, and they were overcome. Bailiff said it's possible the two deputies were shot with their own guns.

The suspect was also shot and taken to the hospital in unknown condition.

Sources tell 41 Action News the suspected shooter is Antoine Fielder. Booking info shows that Fielder has a jury trial for robbery charges coming up on July 30. He’s also been charged with murder, assault and armed criminal action in a December 2017 shooting in Kansas City, Missouri.

Fielder has also been charged with two counts of tampering with a witness. Prosecutors alleged that threats to witnesses contributed to two hung juries in a 2015 murder case.

Suspect in Ohio teen rape and kidnap case captured in Texas; 2 still sought
By Jericka Duncan | CBS News | July 5, 2018


A nationwide manhunt was underway Thursday for three men suspected of kidnapping and raping teenage sisters in Ohio. On Thursday, authorities arrested one of the suspects, David Ramos Contreras, who had been on the run since last week.

Contreras is one of three suspects who detectives say sexually assaulted the two sisters who are 13 and 14.

"Based on the crime that they're accused of we would consider them violent offenders so they would be dangerous," said Lt. Dan Mancuso.

Investigators believe the men are in the U.S. illegally. U.S. marshals and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have joined local police in the manhunt.

The suspects allegedly kidnapped and raped the girls last Thursday. According to police, it happened at a Days Inn, where the teens and their parents were staying at the same time as the men.

Police still haven't been able to confirm the identities of the two men who are still on the run.

"They had fraudulent immigration paperwork or identifications," said Mancuso.

Police say the suspect arrested on Thursday was deported from the U.S. in October of last year. He was found hiding under a bed in Lubbock, Texas and will be extradited back to Ohio to face charges.

Explosion in East Boston caused by man playing with chemicals
28-year-old man likely facing weapon charges
By WCVB 5 ABC | Updated: 11:21 PM EDT Jul 8, 2018


BOSTON — Police and federal agents are investigating after an explosion started a small fire in an East Boston building overnight.

The explosion at 88 Webster Street in East Boston occurred around 12:30 a.m. Sunday. It was so powerful that it blew out the windows of a second-floor apartment where police say a 28-year-old man was mixing chemicals, when the concoction blew up.

Police said the fire was put out quickly, but the man was taken from the home with second-degree burn injuries.

Police identified him as Tomas Mikula, 28, of Boston. He is facing about half a dozen weapons-related charges, including unlawful possession of explosives.

Mikula was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital and kept under police surveillance. He is expected to survive his injuries.

"We don't believe there's anything to do with terrorism here," Evans said. "It's just someone who has some weapons in there and is playing around with chemicals and, you know, some powder, and it looks like that blew up on him."

Police said they found materials commonly used for making explosives, as well as two handguns, a rifle, and more than a hundred rounds of live ammunition in Mikula's home. As a result, the bomb squad, arson squad and FBI agents are all involved in the investigation.

Police officer, bystander shot, killed in Weymouth; suspect in custody
Officer Michael Chesna was 42 years old
By WCVB 5 abc | Updated 7:40 PM EDT Jul 15, 2018


Image

WEYMOUTH, Mass. — A police officer and an innocent bystander were shot and killed in Weymouth Sunday morning.

Authorities say Weymouth police received a call around 7:30 a.m. about an erratic driver in the area of South Shore Hospital. The driver was involved in a single-car accident and was seen leaving the car on foot.

Officers began searching for the suspect when Officer Michael Chesna, 42, located the suspect, identified as Emanuel Lopes, 20, in the area of Burton Terrace vandalizing a home.

Authorities say Chesna got out of his cruiser, drew his firearm and told Lopes to stop when Lopes attacked Chesna with a large stone, striking him in the head. Chesna fell to the ground and Lopes took Chesna's gun and opened fire, hitting Chesna several times in his head and chest.

Chesna was taken to South Shore Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Responding officers exchanged gunfire with Lopes, hitting him in one of his legs before Lopes took of on foot through the yards of Burton Terrace.

Authorities say officers engaged in a foot pursuit with Lopes when he fired off Chesna's gun three more times, with one of those bullets striking a woman who was in her home and killing her. Lopes was placed into custody after discharging the weapon and taken to South Shore Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Previous Mugshot of the killer

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A heartbroken community is mourning the loss of a Fort Worth officer who died Friday evening after he was shot by a robbery suspect that morning.

Officer Garrett Hull was shot in the head during a sting operation. The undercover officers tracked suspected robbers to a small bar on Fort Worth’s south side early Friday morning.

The officers watched the group of suspects go inside the bar, where witnesses said they robbed as many as 10 people at gunpoint. When the officers moved in to confront them, the suspects opened fire. Hull was struck as shots rang out.

Fellow officers loaded Hull into a squad car and rushed him to the hospital where he remained in the ICU through the day.

Back at the bar, officers had fired back and fatally shot the suspected gunman, 23-year-old Dacion Steptoe.

The 17-year veteran of the Fort Worth Police Department died from his injuries at around 9:40 p.m. Friday, the police chief announced at a midnight press conference.

“Police officer Hull is an organ donor and will be able to prolong the life of others… over the next few days… as candidates are matched up with him, we will see him prolong the lives of other folks… because of the sacrifice he made,” Fitzgerald said.

Hull leaves behind a wife and two daughters.

Trooper Kevin K. Conner

COLUMBUS COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- A North Carolina State Trooper is dead after authorities said he was shot during a traffic stop Wednesday morning.

Highway Patrol identified the trooper as Kevin K. Conner. Conner, 38, had been on the force for 11 years. He was assigned to Troop B, District 5, which was based in Columbus County.

The suspect was identified as 20-year-old Raheem Cole Dashanell Davis. He is charged with first-degree murder.

Conner pulled over a pickup about midnight on US 701 near Sellers Town Road in Columbus County. When Conner approached the driver's side of the truck, the driver -- later identified as Davis -- opened fire.

NC State Highway Patrol said Conner died from his injuries after being taken to a nearby hospital.

The suspect drove off and refused to stop when local police tried to pull him over. Eventually, his truck broke down while he attempted to cross railroad tracks.

At that point, the suspect jumped out of his truck and ran. Law enforcement members eventually tracked him down and arrested him.

Bladen County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Larry Guyton said the suspect was caught around 4 a.m. in the woods near Fair Bluff, which is west of Whiteville near the South Carolina line.

SWAT officers served a warrant an hour ago at the Maynard residence. They now think a third punk is involved in the shootings.

Still at Large is Tafahree Maynard, 18

Police in Georgia are searching for a man suspected of killing a police officer who was answering a call about a suspicious vehicle near a middle school, authorities said.

Tafahree Maynard, 18, has been charged with aggravated assault and felony murder in the killing of Gwinnett County officer Antwan Toney on Saturday, the county's police department said. Maynard was still at large late Sunday afternoon.

A second suspect, Isaiah Pretlow, 19, was arrested and has been charged with aggravated assault, police said.

Toney, 30, was responding to an anonymous 911 call reporting a suspicious vehicle parked near Shiloh Middle School on Saturday afternoon when he was killed, police Chief Butch Ayers said. The caller believed the vehicle occupants might have been smoking marijuana.

The officer was approaching the car when, police say, Maynard fired a weapon from inside the vehicle and struck him.

Another officer returned fire and dragged Toney away. He died at a hospital, Sgt. Jake Smith of the Gwinnett County Police Department said.

After the shooting, the suspects' four-door black sedan sped away and crashed about a mile away. The suspects fled. Police believe Pretlow was driving the car and that as many as four people were inside.

"They fled the scene and crashed without an officer in hot pursuit," Smith said.

At some point after running from the car, Pretlow pointed a gun at an officer and the officer fired his weapon at him, police said. Pretlow, who was not injured, is facing an aggravated assault charge stemming from that encounter.

He ran to a wooded area but was arrested hours later by US Marshals, police said.
