It happened on Saturday night while the driver was taking a pizza delivery to a home in the 1400 block of Springwood Drive. Two teens answered the door and tried robbing the man, with one of the teens opening fire on the driver.
The driver, who was also armed, returned fire and sent the two 16-year-old boys running. The driver called police who arrived and found one the suspects, 16-year-old Wayne Delaney Osborne, dead from a gunshot wound.
The second teen was located and charged with aggravated robbery. Osborne was a sophomore at John Horn High School in Mesquite. Mesquite ISD released the following statement:
“The loss of a student’s life is always tragic and heartbreaking, regardless of the circumstances. Mesquite ISD’s thoughts and prayers are with this child’s family as well as the students and staff members of John Horn High School.…
A manhunt is currently in progress for 37-year-old Steve Stephens, who broadcast himself fatally shooting an elderly man before claiming to have killed dozens more.
In the video, Stephens pulls up to the man as he walks down the road while stating he was going to kill the man. After telling the man to say his ex-girlfriend’s name, he then asks his age before shooting him point blank in the head.
The man, later identified as 74-year-old Robert Goodwin Sr., can be seen bleeding on the ground as Stevens walks back to his car and telling his ex-girlfriend this was her fault. You can watch the unedited video below, but be warned, it is the senseless death of an elderly man trying to shield himself with grocery bags.
Stevens then made several posts on Facebook explaining why he was killing people and, as you can imagine, the reasons make no sense to a sane person.…
Malachi Hemphill, 13, had just returned to his room when his mother and sister heard a loud bang. When they ran upstairs to investigate, they found the teen had accidentally shot himself.
“We kicked in the door. We found him just laying there in a pool of blood,” said his mother, Shaniqua Stephens. “My daughter screamed and said, ‘Mom turn his phone off!’ As I proceeded to look at his phone he was on Instagram Live.”
Hemphill was rushed to the hospital where he would be pronounced dead. Turns out Hemphill was live on Instagram while handling a gun when someone watching asked why he didn’t have a clip in the gun.
“As he put the clip in the gun, that is when the gun went off,” said Stephens.
Police are now trying to find out where the teen got the gun. Stephens heard he got the gun from a friend who got it from someone else.…
The depraved activities of 53-year-old Russ Robinson came to light after he pulled over a 17-year-old boy as he left a Family Dollar.
After the teen pulled over, Robinson allegedly began talking with the teen and told him he’s had sex with two other boys before reaching in and grabbing the boy’s groin.
The teen told Robinson he wasn’t gay and then told his parents about the altercation, who then contacted the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Department. When questioned, Robinson admitted to molesting the teen and had molested other minors in the past.
Because Mississippi law does not allow a law enforcement officer to be charged with a crime without a probable cause hearing, Robinson was not immediately arrested and allowed to go home. The next day, Robinson was found dead at his home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Normally, that would be the end of the story.…
Police say 44-year-old Jamie Urton was on his way back to work from lunch when he saw the father of the boy, 25-year-old Jamall Killings, yelling at other drivers.
According to witnesses, Urton was looking at Killings on his driver’s side when the boy was hit on his passenger’s side.
Urton immediately stopped but was attacked by Killings and 25-year-old Deonde Baber through his window. A witness said Urton was “bawling his eyes out” while saying he was sorry.
His apologies fell on deaf ears as either Baber or Killings pulled out a gun and shot Urton multiple times through his door. There still some confusion on who actually did the shooting, with several different news outlets reporting on either Baber or Killings being the shooter.
“He just fell, he just stopped and they kept going at, after he stopped. They kept shooting him,” the witness said.…
The incident happened on Monday at around 12 p.m. after three males – aged 16, 17 and 18 – broke into a home while wearing masks and armed with a knife and brass knuckles.
Unfortunately for the three burglars, the homeowner’s 23-year-old son was sleeping in the home when he heard them break through the back door.
The man armed himself with an AR-15 rifle and walked toward the back door where he encountered the three, masked home intruders.
“Armed with a rifle, there were some shots fired, and, at this point, three people are deceased,” said Wagoner County Sheriff’s Deputy Nick Mahoney.
Two of the teens died inside the home, while the third died after running from the home and collapsing in the driveway.
A fourth person, 21-year-old Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez (pictured), has been identified as the driver and turned herself into police after the shooting.…
The child is currently on life support and is not expected to survive.
Wendy Lavarnia, who was home with three other children at the time, reportedly told police that she had put the loaded gun on the bed, well within reach of two of the children involved, and then turned around to grab the holster.
She said she heard a shot and turned around and saw her 2-year-old holding the gun and her 9-year-old, who had been standing nearby, shot in the head.
Kansas returned to the home shortly after first responders arrived. He was promptly detained and questioned about the gun used in the shooting.
Kansas, a convicted felon, was arrested on suspicion of prohibited possession of a firearm. Wendy has been charged with four counts of child endangerment.
It is unclear whether the three other children are in protective custody, or with relatives.…
Richard Matte told police he just wanted to scare his son by shooting into a wall.
Zak Matte reportedly told police his father entered his bedroom while he was injecting heroin into his right arm. Richard asked Zak if any money he had recently given to him had been used to buy heroin. Zak replied that it hadn’t — it was used to buy pot.
Zak claims his father asked him to turn and look at a hole in the wall. He then shot him.
“I shot my son in the arm on accident,” Richard told a 911 dispatcher. At some point in the conversation with the dispatcher, Richard expressed his frustration with his son’s drug use and said he just snapped. “I just got pushed to the point where I couldn’t take it anymore.”
Richard was charged with one count of reckless endangerment and remains free on $15,000 bail.…
Tarentum, PA — Police allege Teresa Drum, 38, shot and killed her husband after arguing about a casserole she’d burned, then snapped a quick pic of the body and texted it to a friend, before taking a quicky shower and calling 911.
When police and paramedics arrived at the couple’s home late Monday night, Teresa apparently attempted to convince them her husband, 42-year-old Dennis Drum Sr., killed himself.
Teresa claimed the two had argued over the charred casserole, and the fact that she had sucked down his last beer, and he just put a bullet in his head all on his own. She told police he did this as she was calling 911.
She showed police a picture of the body. She took the pic and texted it to a friend, she explained, because she didn’t know what to do. The friend apparently told her to call 911.
Heh. A good friend would have been over 15 minutes later with a shovel and a bottle of wine. Or a dead hooker.…
Somehow, dude survived.
According to police, Flores called 911 Saturday night to report her boyfriend had been shot. She initially told police her boyfriend informed her that he had been shot and asked her to call for help.
She later changed her story, telling police it was she that shot him because she believed he was cheating on her.
The victim reportedly told police he had fallen asleep sitting up in a chair, and woke to what he thought was the sound of fireworks. Oh, and excruciating pain in his lower extremities.
He had been shot once in the dick, and twice in the scrotum. Plus, there were additional gunshot wounds — neck, upper back, and thigh.
The man told officers he owned three 9-mm guns but said he didn’t think his Flores owned a handgun, let alone know how to use one.…
According to authorities, the unidentified couple hit up a food truck just before 2:00 Monday morning. The taco the woman ordered was apparently a little on the cool side.
The woman got kinda pissy when the man in the window refused to warm said taco.
The boyfriend told the woman to calm down, and that’s when the gun came out and he got shot.
He apparently didn’t read the “Boyfriend Handbook.” Article 5 — Section 74-5-2(b) clearly states: “Do not tell the woman to “Calm down.” Especially if the word calm is used with a capital C. Even more especially if food is involved.” (Rule subject to change at any moment). I kid. There is no handboook… we make that shit up as we go along.
It is unclear at this point exactly where the man was shot. He is, however, expected to survive.
It is also unclear exactly who the woman was aiming(?) for, and whether the shooting was purely accidental.…
Frederick Jay Bowdy was building an acting career, including a role in the 2016 film, Prepper, some television roles, and was in the middle of starring in a sports film, Going Vertical.
To make ends meet, the 33-year-old father of at least six children also worked as an exotic dancer in Hollywood. But everything changed for Bowdy last Thursday after he was arrested in Santa Clarita on suspicion of sexual assault.
Not a lot of details on the sexual assault allegation, but he was the following day after posting $100,000 bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Janice Banks.
Days later, Bowdy was using Facebook’s livestream to broadcast from inside his car, telling anyone watching that he was going to commit suicide. This prompted an out of state family member to call police.
However, before authorities could intervene, Bowdy fatally shot himself in the head while sitting in his vehicle.…
Video from a surveillance camera inside the classroom at American School of the Northeast shows the boy stand up and use a .22 caliber pistol he brought from home to shoot a boy sitting in front of him.
He then shoots the teacher before shooting two other students point blank in the head.
Afterwards, it looks as if he tries shooting himself in the head, but the gun either jams or misfires. He seems to be telling other students to leave the classroom just before the teen puts the gun in his mouth and fires.
According to Nuevo Leon state Gov. Jaime Rodriguez, the 24-year-old teacher, a 14-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy were shot in the head and currently “fighting between life and death.” A 15-year-old classmate was shot in the arm and is expected to survive.
A motive behind the shooting is not known at this time, but reports are that the teen was being treated for depression.…
Police were called to the home of Larry and Courtney Taylor on Friday night after a relative went to check on the family after not hearing from them all day.
“He went over there to check on them. No one had heard from there that day,” said Sheriff Colan Harrell. “He saw a body, left and called 911.”
When deputies arrived at the home, they had to kick in a back door to gain entry. Once inside, they encountered 41-year-old Courtney Taylor who was brandishing a pistol.
“He told her to put the weapon down and she didn’t,” Harrell said.
When Taylor aimed the pistol at the deputies, Deputy Sanders shot Taylor twice, once in the chest and once in the abdomen. She was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Deputies would then find the dead bodies of Taylor’s 56-year-old husband Larry, 18-year-old daughter Jesse and 13-year-old daughter Jolee.…
According to police, 65-year-old Rebecca Rawson went to the home of 83-year-old Eugene Matthews to retrieve a dog, Bart, that belonged to Rawson’s estranged husband, who died last week.
Matthews was a friend Rawson’s estranged husband, and took the dog in after his death.
When Rawson showed up to the home with her daughter and brother-in-law, she stayed in the car. When her brother-in-law knocked on the door, a woman answered the door and he called the dog’s name.
When Bart came to the door, he picked him up and took him back to the car. That’s when Matthews came out of the house and fired a handgun into the air twice before firing once at the car Rawson was sitting in.
The shot went through the windshield and hit Rawson in the face, killing her. Matthews’ family is saying he acted in self-defense, and that the Rawson family blasted through the gate and kicked down the front door, but the sheriff’s office said that account contradicts the evidence gathered from the scene.…
Last Friday, police found 30-year-old David Gorski dead inside his car that was stopped on the center median of Milwaukee Avenue near Hollister Drive.
Gorski had been killed by a bullet that went through his right arm and into his chest.
Investigators learned that Gorski had been on a date with an unnamed woman earlier that evening, and that the couple had visited the AMC Hawthorn 12 theater half a mile away in Vernon Hills.
During their interview with the woman, she told police about 37-year-old Kenneth Seplak. She claimed Seplak was a prior acquaintance of hers who has been stalking her and had shown up uninvited to her home on a previous occasion.
Police found Seplak at his home on Saturday and checked his mobile phone’s GPS records. They discovered he was at the Vernon Hills theater at the same time as Gorski and his date, and near the location where Gorski had been shot.…
Police were making a welfare check at a home Monday afternoon after 40-year-old Sheri Shermeyer made a disturbing post on Facebook to her husband.
The entire post can be read below (it is scathing), but in the message she expresses her unhappiness with the way her husband, John, treated her and their son, as well as his drinking.
In the message she flat out tells him he would never see his son again and that he doesn’t deserve a son to carry on his name. She also tells him she hopes he drinks himself to death thinking about all he had lost.
“Hope I don’t see you in Hell,” she tells him near the end of the message. This message, as you can imagine, is what had someone call police to check on her and her son.…
The two boys had been home alone when the 13-year-old called his parents, who in turn called police.
Responding officers found the 12-year-old in a bedroom dead from a gunshot wound. It was first thought that the gunshot had been self-inflicted, but after examining the evidence they felt his death was in fact a homicide.
After multiple interviews throughout the night, the 13-year-old was arrested on first-degree murder charges and placed in the Richard L. Bean Juvenile Detention Center.
Police have not released a motive behind the shooting, or if the boys’ parents will also face charges. The principal of Northwest Middle School, where both boys attended, released the following statement:
“We are deeply saddened by the tragic event that occurred Tuesday night involving two of our students. Our hearts are heavy as we offer our thoughts and prayers to the family during this very difficult time.”
