According to reports, Evans was sitting inside the restaurant looking “sketchy” and disheveled. Evans was known to the workers and, going by statements made to the press, has a history of mental issues.
A sheriff’s deputy was called to the location to check on a report about Evans causing a problem. According to witnesses, the officer sat down beside Evans and asked him how he was doing. Evans responded by pulling out a handgun and shooting the officer in the head.
“I saw him fall back out of his chair and the blood started coming out,” said one patron sitting 10-feet away from the shooting.
Evans fled the scene and witnesses gave responding officers a description the direction Evans was headed. One deputy caught up to him, leading to an exchange of gunfire that left both Evans and the officer dead.
The names of the two police officers have not been released yet, at least not while I am writing this up, but it was reported that one was a 30-year veteran and the other served 16 years.…

CHICAGO, IL – Not a lot of details on this yet, but Chicago police say six people, including a child, were found murdered in a home Thursday afternoon. I am sure some of the following details will change as more information is released.
Police discovered the bodies after being called to the home to perform a well-being check after a co-worker of one of the victim’s called to report they had not been at work for the last two days.

Anna Nosova, 25, was hired to help lure customers into a clothing store near the Lyublino metro station.
This tactic aggravated some of the residents who lived nearby, but not nearly as much as it aggravated 58-year-old Sergei Galakhov, who lived above the clothing store.
The nuclear engineer had been fired the day before and was drinking when he became increasingly aggravated by Nosova’s use of a loudspeaker to advertise the shop’s wares.
So instead of asking her to stop, Galakhov shot the woman dead from his apartment as she stood on the sidewalk. Nosova’s horrified co-workers carried her into the clothing store, but she was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
Police arrived and spoke with Galakhov, who confessed to taking the law into his own hands and shooting Nosova without any warning. He was taken into custody on suspicion of murder and is facing 15 years in prison if convicted.…
According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, two men showed up to a home after responding to a Craigslist ad.
No word on what the homeowner was selling, but reports are that the two men weren’t interested in buying anything, anyway.
Instead, the suspects allegedly tied the homeowner up and took the keys to his SUV. As one man left in the vehicle they arrived in, the other tried taking the victim’s vehicle.
Unfortunately for the would-be car thief, the homeowner had gotten himself freed from his restraints, retrieved a handgun, and was firing shots at him and his accomplice. The unidentified man driving the victim’s SUV was hit and crashed the vehicle into a home a short distance away.
His accomplice got away, but he would die after being transported to the hospital. The homeowner and his wife weren’t hurt during the incident.…

Nelson and the girl had been dating since September of last year until the girl’s mother found out about the relationship and stopped it.
The two continued to see each other secretly, until earlier this month when the girl told Nelson she didn’t want to lie to her parents anymore and broke up with him.
This did not sit well with Nelson, so he allegedly vandalized his ex-girlfriend’s car in the school parking lot. When that didn’t win her over, he posted pictures of him having sex with the girl on social media.
Then, on Monday morning, police say Nelson went to the girl’s home and confronted the girl’s mother, 46-year-old Teresa Ryan, as she pulled up to the home with her 5-year-old daughter in the backseat.
An argument ensued, and Nelson fatally shot Ryan once in the chest and twice in the back before fleeing the scene on foot.…
According to reports, Karen Lotz was upset with her husband Friday night because he had left the coffee maker on. Angry, Larry unplugged the coffee maker and retreated to his office and locked the door.
After Karen used a key to unlock the office door and enter, Larry admits he fired four shots from a .45-caliber handgun. Karen was hit three times, including once in the head, according to prosecutors.

Investigators say a man watched his son, Georta Mack, walk to the bus stop Tuesday morning, but was unaware that his son had returned home shortly after.
The teen had decided to skip school and hide in the basement until his father left for work – a tactic I am sure many of us used back in the day.
Unfortunately for everyone involved with this incident, the man heard the teen in the basement, but thought it was an intruder. Armed with a handgun, the man went into the basement to investigate.
Police say the teen startled his father, resulting in the man firing off a shot that hit his son in the neck. The boy was rushed to the hospital in “extreme critical condition” but would die shortly after.
Captain Terri Theetge said after interviewing the father, his department feels the death was the result of a tragic accident but they would be reviewing the investigation with the Hamilton Prosecutor’s Office.…

“It’s a mess in there,” one police source said. “These people died violently, it seems.”

Police have taken the girl into custody but have not formally charged her.…

Morey is described as a heavy drinker who had “hundreds” of guns in the home. Neighbors say there was always a lot of drinking going on in the home and that this wasn’t the first time something like this has happened.

It happened late Tuesday night when the 45-year-old woman was awakened by sounds of someone in her house. She told police that when she heard footsteps quickly approaching, she fired one shot.
Turns out she was decent at shooting blindly, as she hit her target. Unfortunately, the intruder was her 27-year-old daughter who was visiting from North Carolina. She was rushed to the hospital where she would later die.
No charges have been filed at this time as detectives say the mother’s story matches the evidence they’ve found.
“The homeowner’s story is consistent with the physical evidence and the witness’ statement,” police said in a news release. “At this time, the incident appears to be an accidental shooting; however, the investigation is ongoing.”
Police initially withheld the identities of the woman and her daughter as the mother is a 911 dispatcher and her husband is a St. Cloud police corporal with past work as an undercover narcotics officer.…
Police were called to Braxton’s apartment where they would find a dead woman on Braxton’s couch. The victim was covered with a towel and had been shot in the head.
Braxton, 39, told investigators that the she had shot the woman in the eye two or three days ago for not believing in God, and that she kept the body on the couch as a “shrine from God.”
While she was cooperative with investigators, Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Trent Crump said some of her statements where “somewhat delusional.” He also said that Braxton will not tell them who the victim is.
“When we ask for the victim’s name, she gives her own name,” Crump said. “At this point, we’re not sure what her thought process is or what type of mental illness she may be suffering from.”
He described the victim as a heavyset black woman in her 30s or 40s who may have been pregnant.…

David Abbott was a Manassas City detective who served on the Northern Virginia-Washington, D.C. Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
According to reports, police had been investigating relationships he had with two teen boys he met while a Prince William youth hockey coach.
Police say Abbott solicited sex acts from one boy, who was 11-years-old when they met, over the phone, by text and through social media and email. Police would then learn of a second victim, a 13-year-old boy.
When officers arrived at Abbott’s home to charge him with two counts of taking indecent liberties and two counts of using a communications device to solicit sexual offenses, Abbott refused to come out of the house.
As detectives spoke with Abbott, he pulled out a gun and fatally shot himself.
If Abbott’s name sounds familiar, he made the news last year as the lead detective in a case involving a 17-year-old teen who was sentenced for sending explicit texts to his 15-year-old girlfriend.…
For any of you unaware of the October incident, a suspected shoplifter was leaving a Home Depot and was being followed by the store’s loss prevention team. As they tried to stop the suspect, he got into a waiting SUV that sped out of the parking lot.
This was all noticed by 46-year-old Tatiana Duva-Rodriguez, who was in the parking lot and had a concealed weapons permit. Not knowing exactly what was going on, she decided to pull out her handgun and fire shots at the fleeing SUV, blowing out one of the vehicle’s tires in the process.
The suspected shoplifters were arrested a few days later and police ended up charging Duva-Rodriguez with reckless discharge of a firearm. She would plead no-contest to the charge, admitting to the judge that she made a mistake.
“I made a decision in a split second,” she told a judge.…
KATY, TX – Police have arrested 78-year-old Dennis Gibson after he shot his wife, Jacqueline, and fatally shot his wife’s lover, Vernon Burger.
Gibson has given one hell of a jailhouse interview, but I’ll get to that in a second. First, let’s get to the events that transpired Friday morning.
At around 8 a.m., Gibson got into an argument with 66-year-old Vernon Burger after Burger arrived at Gibson’s home to take Gibson’s wife, 68-year-old Jacqueline, on a trip to Louisiana casino for his birthday.
