On Thursday, police received phone calls reporting gunshots coming from Janzen’s home, followed by a loud bang. A SWAT team arrived at the home, beginning a four hour standoff before a fire was started inside the home.
After firefighters put out the blaze, members of the SWAT made entry into the home and found the bodies of Randy Janzen, his wife, Laurel, and their 19-year-old daughter, Emily. The body of his sister, Shelly, was found shot to death at another location.
According to a post made under Rand Janzen’s Facebook account the murder of his daughter was a cure for the migraines that had plagued his daughter since elementary school. He states that “he shot her in the head and now she is migraine free.”
He claims he murdered his wife and sister because it was in their best interest. His wife was killed because “a mother should never hear the news that their baby has died,” and he murdered his sister so she would not have to live with the shame he’d caused.…
JEMISON, AL – Authorities charged Eric “Heath” Price with murder after he shot and killed his wife inside a doctor’s office before turning the gun on himself.
Leaj Price, 24, got into a a domestic situation with her husband that got so bad she felt the need to run from the home and to a doctor’s office next door. She was frantically trying to get in while screaming for someone to call the police.
Dr. Jay Patel went to the main entrance and found Leaj struggling with her husband, 26-year-old Eric “Heath” Price. “He wouldn’t let go of her hand and he just stood at the doorway,” Patel adds.
Patel said Eric Price threatened him with a gun, so he locked a dozen other patients and employees in a back room. “Before anything could happen, I heard a pop then I heard her stop screaming,” Patel says.
After shooting Leaj in the head, Eric walked back to the couple’s rental home next door and staged a standoff with police that lasted several hours.…
HUDSON, FL – A 13-year-old boy shot and killed his 6-year-old brother and wounded his 16-year-old brother before committing suicide, following a heated argument over food.
The three siblings were home alone Wednesday while their mother and an older brother were at work. At some point they were eating dinner and an argument broke out over food.
That’s when authorities say the 13-year-old retrieved a handgun and used it to fatally shoot his little brother. He then shot his older brother before turning the gun on himself.
The 16-year-old suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was able to call police. The scene was reportedly so grisly that a crisis intervention team was brought in for the responding deputies.
“This is a nightmare when you hear about the ages of these boys,” said Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco. “A 6-year-old that was probably playing in his room, an argument over food, and he lost his life.”
Details regarding the argument, the names of those involved and how the boy was able to get his hands on a gun have not been released at this time.…
GARLAND, TX – Police have taken a 12-year-old boy into custody for the fatal shooting of 13-year-old Matthew Cisneros, a death police initially thought was a suicide.
Back in February, police were called to a home where Cisneros was found dead from a gunshot wound with a gun lying near his body. According to Joe Harn with Garland Police, it wasn’t immediately certain if the shooting was self-inflicted.
But the resulting investigation revealed Cisneros and a 12-year-old friend were playing with the gun and that the younger boy wasn’t aware the gun was loaded when he pulled the trigger and fatally shot his friend.
The 12-year-old has been placed in custody and is now facing a manslaughter charge. I couldn’t find any details on how the boys got possession of the gun in the first place, but Texas law is pretty clear that anyone who allows a child to gain access to a loaded firearm can be charged with criminal negligence.
A friend of the Cisneros family has setup a GoFundMe page to help with the boy’s funeral expenses.…
BATON ROUGE, LA – Police have arrested 58-year-old Eldridge Dukes after they say he shot his 18-year-old son in the ass during an argument over orange juice.
Dukes and his son got into an argument on Sunday about having no orange juice that led to the teenager breaking a vase.
In response, Dukes grabbed a handgun and chased his son out of the house and down the street, firing several times. His son was hit once in the ass and suffered non-life-threatening injuries, say police.
Dukes was arrested and placed in the parish prison on counts of attempted manslaughter and illegal use of a dangerous weapon.
Some people just take their food seriously, man. A couple of months ago a 14-year-old stabbed his older brother to death over a soft drink and a bag of chips, and last year a man choked the shit out of his cookie eating roommate.…
PHILADELPHIA, PA – Three juveniles have been accused of murdering 51-year-old James Stuhlman as the man pleaded for his life during an armed robbery.
According to police, Stuhlman and his 13-year-old daughter would take his dog for a walk around the neighborhood every night. But on March 12, Stuhlman told his daughter it was getting a little late and walked his dog alone.
At around the same time, Brandon Smith (pictured) and Tyfine Hamilton, both 15-years-old, were with an unnamed 14-year-old boy playing basketball. Afterwards, they decided they wanted to rob someone.
They settled on Stuhlman because “he looked soft” and his dog did not look aggressive. After confronting Stuhlman and announcing he was being robbed, the man begged for his life and pleaded with the teens not to shoot him.
Hamilton ignored his pleas, according to police, and shot the man once in the chest. Being the cowards that they are, the teens ran off without taking anything from Stuhlman.
Stuhlman would be found on the ground holding a flashlight in one hand and his dog’s leash in the other. …
Marshall and 65-year-old Theodore Hubbell Jr. owned property next to each other off a dirt road in a rural subdivision call Bokeelia. Marshall and his wife had purchased the property with hopes of building a home with a shed there.
Hubbell was upset with Marshall for clear cutting parts of the property and covering over gopher tortoise burrows. In Florida, the gopher tortoise is listed as Threatened. Both the tortoise and its burrow are protected under state law. Gopher tortoises must be relocated before any land clearing or development takes place, and property owners must obtain permits from the FWC before capturing and relocating tortoises.
Hubbell explained this to Marshall and uncovered the buried burrows. Marshall was upset with this and contacted his attorney, Robert Harris, who instructed him to contact police to get a restraining order. Marshall did contact police but there isn’t a restraining order against Hubbell.…
HOLLY HILL, FL – Christopher Taft has been arrested after police say the 21-year-old shot his sister in the ass with a BB gun because she made him a penis cake for his birthday.
According to police, Taft shot his sister after she gave him a birthday cake that was shaped like a dick. Taft told police he didn’t mean to hurt his sister when he shot her, he just thought it would be a funny response.
The BB ended up embedded in his sister’s ass cheek, but she refused to be transported to the hospital. She said she would go herself and did not want to pursue charges against her brother.
Police noted the woman’s request, then arrested Taft and charged him with aggravated battery and battery causing bodily harm. He was released from Volusia County jail the following day.
Last time I ever heard of a shooting involving a penis cake, it was regarding Jaded getting pissed she didn’t get one on her birthday. In fact, let’s make it up to Jaded.…

On Thursday morning, 48-year-old Keith Dukes got into an argument with his 34-year-old wife, Michelle Dukes, inside their home while their three children were sitting in a car outside.
The argument between the couple, who have been separated for a year, turned violent when Duke grabbed a knife and slit his wife’s throat. She managed to run from the house, screaming for help.
Her daughters, ages 7, 13 and 14, saw their mother running away and got out of the car to join her. At the same time, a Waste Management truck driver was passing by and saw Michelle and her daughters toward him, screaming for help.
“I saw a cut going from one side of her neck to the other,” said the driver.
As he called 911, Michelle and her daughters ran into a neighbor’s house. But Keith wasn’t done, and he wasn’t letting a neighbor’s home protect Michelle from what he had in store for her next.…
JEANNETTE, PA – Maxwell Morton has been charged with murder after police say the 16-year-old shot a classmate in the face before taking a selfie with the victim’s body and posting it to Snapchat.
Police were contacted Wednesday evening after the mother of 16-year-old Ryan Mangan found her son dead in his room. The following day, a woman called police to report a disturbing image her son had received via Snapchat.
The image was a selfie taken by Morton with a very dead Mangan sitting in a chair behind him with a gunshot wound to the face. The woman also said her son received messages from Maxwell, stating, “Told you I cleaned up the shells” and “Ryan was not the last one.”
A search warrant was served at Morton’s home and a 9 mm handgun was found in the basement under the steps that matched a shell casing found in Mangan’s room. After being advised of his rights, Morton confessed to shooting Mangan. At this time, no motive has been revealed.…
UPPER DARBY, PA – A teen who tried to rob an old man with a toy gun has died after the intended victim used his real gun to shoot the teenager in the head.
The shooting happened Wednesday afternoon when a 67-year-old man walking in Cobbs Creek park was confronted by 18-year-old Tyler Williams.
“As he turns around, he sees a masked man with a gun pointed at him saying, ‘Give it up, give me all you got,” said Supt. Michael Chitwood, Upper Darby Township Police.
The old man didn’t comply with the teen’s demands, but rather grabbed the teen’s gun. The two got into a struggle that ended when the victim pulled out his very real, .38 caliber handgun, and used it to shoot the teen in the head.
The man then walked out of the park and called 911 and Williams would die at the scene.
Chitwood said the teen was found with half a dozen cell phones and that the toy gun he was using looked so real that police at the scene didn’t know it was a fake until they got a closer look at it.…
ELMO, MO – An infant has died after his 5-year-old brother got his hands on a loaded gun and shot him in the head.
According to the Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office, the mother of the two children called 911 to report her five-year-old son shot her infant in the head with a paintball gun.
But after law enforcement arrived at the location, they discovered that the infant had been shot in the head with a .22 caliber magnum revolver. The baby boy was flown to a Kansas City hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Nodaway County Sheriff Darren White said the infant was inside a playpen in a bedroom where the loaded gun was located on a shelf built into the headboard of a bed.
“At this point foul play is not suspected, and it appears at this time that the shooting was accidental,” said White.
Neighbor and family friend, Kathy Armentrout, said the mother was home alone with her five young sons at the time of the shooting. White said the gun belonged to a relative and that guns are common place in the area.…
TAMPA, FL – Police have charged a 15-year-old and her 11-year-old sister with the murder of their 16-year-old brother.
Police learned of the shooting after the two girls told an officer that there had been a shooting at their home. They told the officer that her older brother had beaten her up earlier in the day.
Police arrested the 15-year-old and charged her with premeditated murder on Monday, saying she grabbed a handgun from her parents’ bedroom and fatally shot her brother in the living room of their home.
Her sister was arrested the following day and faces the same charge. The sheriff’s office has not released details regarding the younger sibling’s involvement but did say in a statement that she allegedly “assisted” in the killing of her brother.
Investigators believe that the fight between the older sibling and her brother was the motive behind the shooting, said Columbia County sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Murray Smith.
Also charged were the girls’ parents. Keith Kornegay, 37, and Misty Kornegay, 33, were out of town at the time of the shooting, but were later arrested and charged with child neglect.…
HAYDEN, ID – Veronica Rutledge was inside a Walmart when she was accidentally shot and killed by her 2-year-old boy after he reached into her purse and her concealed gun fired.
The shooting occurred on Tuesday at around 10:20 a.m. as Rutledge, 29, was shopping with her son and three other children, said Kootenai County sheriff’s spokesman Stu Miller.
The boy was in a shopping cart when he reached into his mother’s purse and pulled out a small-caliber handgun. The gun fired once and Rutledge, who had a concealed weapons permit, was fatally struck.
“It appears to be a pretty tragic accident,” Miller said.
Rutledge’s husband showed up to the store shortly after the shooting. All of the children were taken to a relative’s house.
Rutledge’s father-in-law, Terry Rutledge, told The Associated Press that Rutledge “was a beautiful, young, loving mother” and was “not the least bit irresponsible.” I beg to differ.
Look, I’m all for people being able to carry a concealed firearm. Hell, I’m a concealed weapons permit holder myself.…
DAYTON, OH – Police said a man with a concealed weapon permit shot and killed 16-year-old Jawaad Jabbar after the teen showed a gun and tried to rob the man of his new Nike Air Jordans.
According to reports, Jabbar was with two friends at the Dayton Mall to buy a pair of the limited edition sneakers. When the teen found out the shop had sold out, he resorted to getting them another way.
He and his friends waited outside on the sidewalk until they spotted two men leaving the mall carrying the newly bought shoes they were seeking. Jabbar allegedly showed a gun to the men and demanded their merchandise.
“This was a random act of ‘I want something that person has and I’m going to take it from them by any means,'” said Miami Township, Ohio police Sgt. Jay Phares.
Unfortunately for Jabbar, he picked a man with a concealed weapon permit who was carrying a gun of his own. The man, who is not being identified at this time, pulled out his gun and shot Jabbar once in the torso.…

According to Pinellas Park police, 57-year-old Dennis Emery became angry with his wife when he could not locate his lighter. During this argument Emery picked up a revolver, pointed it at the family dog and threatened to shoot it.
