Police Identify Fallen Richardson Officer & Accused Gunman
By CBS DFW | February 8, 2018


Image

RICHARDSON (CBSDFW.COM) – Police have released the name of the Richardson police officer who was killed along with a civilian on Wednesday evening. Officer David Sherrard was shot after responding to a call about a disturbance at the Breckinridge Point Apartments, near Renner Road and North Star Road.

During a morning press conference Richardson police Chief Jimmy Spivey said when officers arrived they found the injured civilian and began rendering aid. “In the course of their investigation they were led to an apartment where they made an entry and immediately encountered gunfire.” The Chief said Officer Sherrard fell back out of the apartment and was immediately helped by other officers.

After allegedly shooting Officer Sherrard, accused gunman Brandon De McCall barricaded himself inside one of the apartments for more than four hours. The wounded 37-year-old officer was rushed to Medical City Plano but died from his injuries. He had been shot in the neck.

Early Thursday morning police also identified the civilian victim killed as Rene Gamez. Police say the 30-year-old lived in the apartment where McCall held police at bay and that he knew the accused gunman. The exact relationship between the two men, if any, isn’t known.

Officer David Sherrard was a 14-year veteran with the department and was married with two daughters. A memorial for the officer has been started on a cruiser parked outside RPD headquarters and the flag there has been lowered to half-staff.

This is surreal. Thirty-one years on the job, he was not a street cop. He was off-duty across the street at City Hall when he heard the police scanner and description of the guy who ran from police. When Bauer found and approached the suspect, he was shot twice in the head. He leaves behind a wife and young daughter. :(

Chicago police Cmdr. Paul Bauer shot to death at Thompson Center in Loop
By Chicago Tribune | February 13, 2018


Image

A high-ranking Chicago police officer was shot to death at the Thompson Center on Tuesday afternoon while assisting a tactical team that was chasing a person who was acting suspiciously, police said.

Cmdr. Paul Bauer of the Near North District was shot several times a little before 2 p.m., according to police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. He said a suspect was taken into custody and a gun recovered.

Bauer, 53, joined the department in 1986 and worked all across the city over his career — from the South Side to the specialized mounted patrol unit to his current position as commander of the busy and high-profile Near North District.

Bauer was shot after a man started running from tactical officers who had tried to stop him for questioning, according to Johnson. The officers radioed a description that the commander heard, he said. Bauer, at the Thompson Center for a training session, confronted the suspect, who opened fire.

Police radio traffic caught the moments before the shooting, including a warning from one of the pursuing officers, “Don’t anybody get hurt. We just wanted to do a street stop on him.”

After witnessing the massive support today at the funeral for Officer David Sherrard in Dallas, this tragedy in Chicago is the worst I can imagine for police officers in a US city. Cmdr. Paul Bauer's most recent priority was to change the "revolving door" of criminals in and out of prison. This is all I can find on the killer. In a news clip, I did see them put him in the police cruiser.

Quote:
The 44-year-old suspect’s felony record goes back to 1998, when he was charged with armed robbery. He was convicted and sentenced to 16 years in prison.
In 2007, the man was charged with being a felon in possession of body armor, possession of a defaced firearm and possession of heroin. He got three years in prison on the gun charge, records show.
In 2011, he was charged with resisting an officer and battery. He was convicted of battery and given 30 days of community service, records show.
Finally, the suspect was convicted of drug possession in 2014 and received a two-year prison term.
The Sun-Times isn’t naming the man, who lives on the South Side, because he isn’t charged in Bauer’s death.

I missed reporting two police officers killed the week I was gone house-sitting, two weeks ago. :(

Five police officers were shot last Monday, one died and one was on life-support awaiting organ donors, last I remember.

Two police officers have already been shot today, hospitalized and in good condition, in Idaho... IDAHO! Perp is dead.

This is really odd. Sent to the wrong house which turned out to be a meth lab. :roll

Missouri officer killed, 2 hurt when sent to wrong house
By Heather Hollingsworth, Margaret Stafford | Associated Press | March 7, 2018


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri police officer who was shot and killed and two others who were wounded had been sent to the wrong house following a 911 call, authorities said Wednesday.

Missouri Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Lowe said no one spoke when the 911 call came in Tuesday night but two women could be heard arguing in the background. For reasons that authorities still are trying to determine, the officers were sent to the address in Clinton where they were shot. The home that officers should have responded to was in Windsor, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) away.

The three Clinton officers went inside the home to determine if criminal activity was occurring and James Waters shot them, Lowe said. Waters, 37, was in the home. It’s not clear if he was living there.

Officer Christopher Ryan Morton, 30, died. Officer Nathan Bettencourt was in stable condition Wednesday. The third officer, Nicholas Kasper, was treated for gunshot wounds and released Wednesday.

After the officers were shot, a SWAT team entered the house and found Waters dead. Investigators have not determined if he shot himself or was killed by the officers, Lowe said.

Officials ID Man Accused of Killing Pomona Police Officer, Injuring Another Amid Hours-Long Standoff
By Cindy Von Quednow, John Fenoglio, Dave Mecham | KTLA | March 10, 2018


Image
Officer Greggory Casillas

A man who allegedly shot and killed a Pomona police officer and injured another has been taken into custody following an 15-hour standoff with authorities Saturday.

Isaias De Jesus Valencia, 39, is suspected of killing Greggory Casillas, 30, who had been with the department since 2014 and leaves behind a wife and two small children, officials said. Los Angeles County coroner's officials had originally given a different spelling of the officer's first name.

Valencia was expected to be charged with murdering Casillas and the attempted murder of the second officer, who has not been identified, L.A. County sheriff's officials said.
[...]
Casillas had originally joined the department as a records specialist before becoming a jailer in 2015.

He later completed San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department training and was sworn in as an officer last September. He was just completing his field training when he was shot late Friday night.

Casillas was a Los Angeles native who attended both high school and college in the area, the police chief said, without naming specific schools. He is survived by his mother and father, as well as wife and two small children.

Kentucky police officer killed in the line of duty; no suspect named
By Michelle Carroll, Anna Taylor | WVAH | March 14, 2018

Officer Scotty Hamilton

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WCHS/WVAH) — A suspect has not been named after a Pikeville, Ky., police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty Tuesday night.

Officer Scotty Hamilton was a 12-year veteran and joined the Pikeville Police Department in 2006. Kentucky State Police Post 13 Public Information Officer Jody Sims said Hamilton was shot while he and Trooper Matt Martine were investigating an area known to have high criminal drug activity.

"They had a presence in the area due to past known incidences of drug trafficking," Sims said during a news conference Wednesday.

With the information that has been gathered by KSP detectives, it is not known if there were any witnesses to the shooting incident. Sims said Martin was not in the immediate proximity when Hamilton was shot, but Martin told detectives he did hear gunshots.

At least three shots were believed to have been heard, Sims said, and Hamilton sustained at least one gunshot wound to the head. He is survived by his wife and one child.

This one stands out to me, because the teacher said she didn't mean it. :eek How stupid do you have to be? :roll

District arms teachers with rocks in case of school shooter
By Kristen de Groot | AP | March 23, 2018


A rural school district in Pennsylvania is arming teachers and students with buckets of rocks as a last resort should an armed intruder burst in, the superintendent said Friday.

Every classroom in the district about 90 miles (145 kilometers) northwest of Philadelphia has a 5-gallon bucket of river stones, said Blue Mountain School District Superintendent David Helsel.

“We always strive to find new ways to keep our students safe,” Helsel told The Associated Press in a telephone interview, adding that the rocks are one small part of the district’s overall security plan.

[,,,]
One high school senior said he supports the plan, adding that throwing rocks is better than throwing books or pencils.

Parents also have been supportive of the measure, which was implemented in the fall.

“At this point, we have to get creative, we have to protect our kids first and foremost,” parent Dori Bornstein told WNEP-TV. “Throwing rocks, it’s an option.”

Parents accused of choking, beating daughter for refusing arranged marriage
By CBS News, AP | WDBJ7.com | March 26, 2018


SAN ANTONIO, Tx. - Charges are being filed against the parents of a 16-year-old San Antonio high school student who police say repeatedly assaulted their daughter until she agreed to an arranged marriage, CBS affiliate KENS reports.

The Bexar County Sheriff's Office announced that they have found Maarib Al Hishmawi, a Taft High School student who had been missing since January, and arrested her parents for abuse.

"It became fairly obvious very early on that this wasn't a regular missing persons case," Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar told reporters Friday.

"Several times it was reported to us that this young lady was abused, with hot oil being thrown on her body. She was beaten by broomsticks. At one point she was choked almost to the point of unconsciousness," said Salazar.

[...] About a month after her disappearance, Maarib's father Abdul Al Hishwami expressed frustration at what he said was a lack of response from police. He even reached out to the FBI himself, reported CBS affiliate WGCL, believing his daughter may have been kidnapped.

Instead, Sheriff Salazar told reporters, the girl had run away from her family and was found safe in another city sometime in mid-March. She was then placed in the care of Child Protective Services.

Maarib's five younger siblings have also been placed with Child Protective Services, according to WGCL.

The man who arranged the teen's marriage may also be facing charges.

The San Antonio Express-News reports officials say the family is from Iraq and has been in the U.S. for two years.

A major fire has consumed the roof and upper floors of a multi-storey block of flats in the city of Grozny. More than 200 people have been evacuated, as firefighters work on extinguishing the flames.

The attic of the 12-storey building in Grozny city center caught fire on Monday evening, spreading across some 200 square meters. According to preliminary reports, no one has been injured in the fire, the region’s emergencies ministry has said.

Some 155 firefighters with 44 pieces of equipment were rushed to the scene, eventually managing to extinguish the blaze. Rescuers also had to evacuate mall-goers from a nearby shopping center.

Pictures on social media captured the block’s roof engulfed in fire, with black smoke rising above.

Man suspected in Kentucky officer’s death killed
By Associated Press | NY Post | March 30, 2018


Image
Officer Phillip Meacham, 38

A man suspected of fatally shooting an off-duty police officer in a small Kentucky city has been killed by law enforcement officials in Tennessee.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Rob Austin says in a statement Friday that 34-year-old James K. Decoursey of Hopkinsville “had a brief encounter with law enforcement” officials in Clarksville, Tennessee, where he “was shot and died from his injuries.”

Kentucky State police say Decoursey shot and killed 38-year-old Hopkinsville officer Phillip Meacham Thursday afternoon, then fled on foot then before taking off in a pickup truck.

Meacham, who was married and had two school-age children, had been with the Hopkinsville department since May 2017. Before that worked for about 14 years with the Christian County Sheriff’s Department.

Hopkinsville is about 73 miles (117.48 kilometers) northwest of Nashville, Tennessee.
