    Dog walker shoots pit bull during attack in Palm Bay, police say
    No charges to be filed against shooter; dog euthanized

    PALM BAY, Fla. - A dog walker shot a pit bull that was later euthanized after a man said his neighbor's dog attacked him in Palm Bay, according to police.

    The incident happened around 9:30 a.m. Thursday in the 900 block of Granata Avenue.

    The man told police he and his dog were walking on Granata Avenue when they were attacked by two dogs, including a 4-year-old brindle pit bull named Sammy.

    "I can't think about anything but my dog," owner Mikayla Butcher told News 6 on Friday. "She was my everything," the 19-year-old said.

    The man shot at Samy with his .380 handgun and struck the dog a couple of times, a police report obtained by News 6 stated.

    The dog was taken to Eau Gallie Veterinary Hospital, where it was euthanized.

    "There were two bullets in her lungs. She would have needed two surgeries and I didn't want to put her through that," Butcher said.

    No charges will be filed against the 53-year-old man who shot the dog, police said.

    The police report said Sammy was on a leash, which was tied to a stake but she pulled the stake out of the ground.

    Police said the man reported that Butcher's dog bit him and hurt his own dog, too. He said that, before shooting his handgun, he tried kicking the dog.

    "My dog was an angel. She would not hurt a thing," Butcher said.

    News 6 called the man on Friday, but he didn't pick up or call back.

    The man has a concealed weapons permit.

    The police report takes his side, saying he acted in self-defense.

    "Pit bulls are misjudged because of how other people have treated them," Butcher said.

    Employee shoots Hesperia man during alleged attempted robbery

    HESPERIA — Authorities are still investigating an alleged robbery and assault that turned into a shooting at a local business early Friday morning.

    San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department officials said 37-year-old Hesperia resident Michael Richardson was shot during the incident, which occurred at a business in the 15900 block of Bear Valley Road at 12:08 a.m. Friday.

    Officials said Richardson reportedly went to the business and “created a disturbance.” He refused to leave despite being asked to and became physically aggressive, assaulting at least two victims and “demanding property from them” just before an employee reportedly shot him.

    “Fearing for his safety and the safety of the others in the business, an employee retrieved a handgun, and several shots were fired,” officials said.

    Hesperia Sheriff’s Station deputies responding to the incident found Richardson in a vacant field behind the business suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper body, officials said.

    Richardson was treated at the scene and flown to a local hospital, while detectives processed the scene and interviewed all witnesses. Officials said Richardson is expected to survive his injuries and, upon his release, will be arrested on suspicion of strong-arm robbery.

    An employee who suffered minor injuries from the assault was treated and released at the scene. No other injuries were reported.

    All employees and customers inside the business are cooperating with detectives, officials said, and the firearm used during the shooting was recovered at the scene. Further details weren’t available.

    Suspected burglar shot dead during home invasion

    A burglary suspect died from gunshot wounds Wednesday after an altercation with family members at a Dunnellon-area home.

    According to the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were responding to a burglary in process at 4:31 p.m. Wednesday on West Dunklin Street when a male suspect, later identified as Zechariah Tackett, 28, of Levy County, was shot.

    When deputies arrived, they found Tackett lying on his back outside of the residence, and two males identified as Robert Jones Sr., 54, and Robert Jones Jr., 32, both of Citrus County, standing in the driveway.

    Deputies performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on Tackett, but he was unresponsive and pronounced dead at 4:51 p.m, the report states.

    Major crimes detectives interviewed Robert Jones Sr., who said after receiving a call from his sister about a possible burglary, he and his son — both carrying weapons — responded to the home and found an unknown male in the living room. He said Tackett was shot during that confrontation, the report states.

    While deputies were searching the house, they found over a dozen firearms laying on the living room floor and a safe that was cut open. After Tackett's next of kin were notified, detectives discovered Tackett was a suspect in other burglaries in both Citrus and Marion counties. Detectives are continuing their investigation and will release more information when the case is closed.

    10 today. This one is a bit different.

    UPDATE: Raccoon rabid, tests show
    An Angola woman attacked by a raccoon who entered her home through a cat door faces a complete series of rabies shots after the raccoon tested positive for rabies.

    Christine King had already received a dozen shots before the test confirmed the shots were necessary. Her husband, Bruce King, said state officials informed the couple Jan.12 the raccoon was rabid.

    In an interview Jan. 11, Christine King said she and her husband could laugh about the early morning hours of Jan. 10, when she was attacked in her home by a raccoon.

    “It was quite the scene,” she said, chuckling. “Me screaming and my husband standing there naked with no glasses, shooting his gun.”

    Bruce chimes in, “It was a big coon – 30 inches. I knew not to shoot it in the head because that’s how they test for rabies.”

    The Kings, who live off Camp Arrowhead Road in Angola, have four cats, and they have a back entrance cat door so the cats can come and go. Bruce said raccoons have entered the cat door before, but this was the first time a raccoon went past the food bowls.

    I used to hunt,” Bruce said. “Now, I only kill things that attack us.”

    Christine said she thought a cat was causing the ruckus in her bedroom, and when she got out of bed to see what it was, the raccoon attacked her.

    “At first I thought one of my cats was going crazy, but then I looked down and saw it was a damn raccoon,” she said. The electric furnace at the foot of her bed and the wooden floor just to the right have the bullet marks to prove the story.

    This is the second time in a month a person in the Cape Region has been bitten by a raccoon.

    In mid-December, public health officials confirmed a raccoon bit a homeowner who was hanging up decorations in Kings Creek. That raccoon tested positive for rabies. At the time, Jen Brestel, community relations officer for the Division of Public Health, said the raccoon was hiding in some bushes when the homeowner in the Rehoboth Beach community was bit Dec. 9.

    According to the Division of Public Health, only mammals carry rabies and the most common carrier of the disease in Delaware is the raccoon. A public health pamphlet defines rabies as a deadly disease caused by a virus that attacks the central nervous system – brain and spinal cord.

    The pamphlet also says exposure to a rabid animal does not always result in rabies, but if rabies exposure is not treated and a person develops clinical signs of rabies, the disease is always considered to be fatal.

    “If treatment is initiated promptly following a rabies exposure, rabies can be prevented,” the pamphlet states.

    Bruce said state officials notified him Jan. 12 that the raccoon was rabid. He said he wanted to get the message out for people to be on the watch.

    Bruce also commended the professionalism of the emergency service personnel who helped them.

    “From the 911 call, to the ambulance drivers to the emergency room doctors, their professionalism was outstanding,” he said.

    Christine said it’s easy for Bruce to say that because he wasn’t the person getting shots in both arms, both buttocks and in the open wounds by two people at the same time. “I was squeezing his hand so hard it hurt,” she said, again laughing. “If I’m going to be in that much pain, so is he.”

    Christine said she’s scheduled for another shot Saturday, Jan. 13, and then two more the following week.

    In a Jan. 11 email, Brestel said since Jan. 1, health department officials have performed rabies tests on four animals, three of which were negative for rabies, and one result is pending. “DPH only announces lab-confirmed positive rabies cases in which it is possible the animal had unknown contacts with humans and there is risk of exposure to the community,” she said.

    Anyone who thinks they might have been bitten, scratched or come in contact with a raccoon should immediately contact their healthcare provider or call the DPH Rabies Program at 302-744-4995. An epidemiologist is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Also anyone who thinks their pet may have been bitten by this raccoon should call their private veterinarian or the Delaware Department of Agriculture at 302-698-4630.

    Neighbors say Morning View man shot son in self-defense
    by Joe Webb, WKRC

    Thursday, January 11th 2018



    A shooting in rural Kenton County is shaping up as a family tragedy. (WKRC)

    MORNING VIEW, Ky. (WKRC) - A shooting in rural Kenton County is shaping up as a family tragedy.

    Twenty-four-year-old Collin Thomas Huff was shot and killed at home by his father, and neighbors are saying it was in self-defense.

    The peace and quiet of rural Kenton County was broken Wednesday night on Decoursey Pike. Kenton County Police found Huff dead of a gunshot wound to the face. His father, Ron Huff, was in handcuffs at the crime scene Wednesday night but has not been charged with anything.

    Neighbor Margie Collins says she spoke to Ron Huff Thursday morning. He told her Collin was under the influence Wednesday night and an argument turned violent.

    "He said, 'Margie, I had to kill my only son,' and he was crying," Margie said. "And he said it was that dope and he wasn't Collin no more. And said he threatened [him] with either a hammer or a hatchet. I'm so upset, I can't remember what he said."

    Kenton County Police are investigating. They would not confirm any details of what happened in the house. They plan to talk with Ron Huff more Thursday.

    An autopsy will be performed on Collin Huff's body Friday. So far, no one has been charged with any crime.

    Margie says Collin Huff sat at her kitchen table less than one week ago. She says he was a great kid and got along well with his father until a drug arrest in December.

    "I love the man and respect him, and shooting his only son was not his fault," Margie said.

    The police will ultimately decide if this family tragedy is self-defense, murder or something else.

    The Kenton County coroner says Collin Huff's autopsy will be done by the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort.

    Hijacker shot dead in Durban

    Durban - A hijacker was shot dead and two accomplices arrested following a shoot out during an attempted hijacking in Esselen Cresent in Phoenix on Friday evening.

    Police spokesperson, Major General Thulani Zwane, said four men, driving a Hyundai Accent, had attempted to hijack a man of his VW Polo at around 21:00.

    "Members of the neighbourhood watch confronted the hijackers who shot at the civilians. The civilians returned fire and the highjackers drove away at high speed and crashed into a fence about 200 metres down the road," he said.

    Zwane said the driver had died on the scene.

    "Two suspects were arrested in the vehicle while the fourth suspect fled," he said.

    He said the two arrested men were being guarded in hospital, as they had been injured in the crash.

    Zwane said the Accent that the men were driving had been hijacked nearby on Tuesday, in Avelen Crescent.

    5 today. This story unfortunately did not go well for an unarmed husband and wife in the store. Things did go a little different for someone who the criminals approached earlier and was armed.

    Man Dead, Woman Injured After Fort Worth Grocery Store Shooting

    FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A man is dead and a woman hospitalized after a robbery at a supermarket in Fort Worth.

    Police have identified the man killed as 26-year-old Raymond Huerta, of Fort Worth. The 26-year-old was killed trying to stop the robbery and protect the woman who witnesses say is his wife.

    The shooting happened at the Save-A-Lot grocery store on James Avenue near Interstate-20.

    According to police, they found Huerta dead “on the floor of the business” when they arrived.

    A witness who spoke with CBS 11 News said he and a friend were at a home across the street from the grocery store when two men approached them. He said they both feared they were about to be robbed so his friend pulled out a gun and the suspects raw away.

    A short time later he said he heard gunshots, ran over to the store and found a man shot in the head and a woman who looked as if she’d been beaten on the head and face with a gun.

    An assistant store manager said two women were working at the store at the time of the robbery and that the man killed was the husband of one of those employees. Police say Huerta was concerned about his wife working late at night and was at the store to look out for her.

    Fort Worth police have not given a description of the suspects – only that they’re looking for two men. Witnesses say the men may be driving a silver-colored Ford Taurus.
