    It’s a rare sight when law enforcement arrive at the scene of a crime where the suspect is being held at gunpoint by a neighbor.
    Brazos County sheriff’s deputy Nathan Dennis says a neighbor to a burglary victim called in a report of suspicious activity and later fired two shots into the ground to stop the suspect.

    The gunfire from a 22 caliber rifle was in a pasture north of Kurten Wednesday afternoon.

    According to the arrest report, 17 year old Eric Derrow of Clay told the deputy who arrested him that he kicked in a door of the victim’s home to look for gasoline.

    Derrow was released from the Brazos County jail Friday after posting a $5,000 dollar bond.

    Off-duty sheriff’s deputy shoots, wounds man in Manassas
    WASHINGTON — An off-duty Prince William County sheriff’s deputy confronting a group of individuals fighting in a Manassas apartment complex shot and wounded one of the suspects, police said Friday.

    Officers were called to the Fields of Manassas apartments in the 7400 block of Willoughby Lane around 11:15 p.m. Thursday to investigate calls of gunfire.

    When they arrived, they found a man with a gunshot wound. He was taken to an area hospital and later released.

    Further investigation revealed that a large group of people had gathered at the apartment complex and were fighting.

    Police say that, at some point, someone in the group pulled out a gun and fired multiple times into the air.

    That prompted several residents to call the Public Safety Communications Center.

    Before Prince William police arrived, a security resident of the apartment complex, identified as an off-duty Prince William County sheriff’s deputy, confronted multiple individuals who were fleeing the scene.

    That’s when the deputy, who was armed and not in uniform, fired a handgun and struck the man initially located by officers.

    Prince William County police arrived shortly after.

    A police K-9 and helicopter from Fairfax County police helped search the area for those involved in the fight. Multiple people were subsequently detained.

    The Prince William County Sheriff’s Office will conduct a separate administrative investigation into the incident.

    The deputy involved has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the criminal and administrative investigation.

    Below is a map of the area where the incident occurred.

    South Bend shooting death ruled justifiable homicide

    SOUTH BEND — No charges will be filed in the Tuesday shooting death of 18-year-old Lamar Foster.

    After reviewing the St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit's investigation, it was determined the shooting constituted a justifiable homicide, according to a news release from the prosecutor's office.

    Around 9 a.m., South Bend police were called to the 1700 block of Pulaski Street to find Foster dead from an apparent gunshot wound. Foster and the person who eventually shot him had a documented history of domestic violence in which Foster was the perpetrator, according to the release. The other party was not identified because they are not being charged with a crime.

    The person who shot Foster lives on Pulaski Street. In the early hours on Tuesday, Foster reportedly armed himself with a firearm and entered the home of the person who shot him. He entered through a bedroom window without permission, according to the release.

    Foster reportedly battered the other party and held the firearm to the person's head and threatened to shoot. Other people were in the home at the time and Foster eventually put down the weapon and left.

    The other party took the gun to their car. Foster returned around 9 a.m. and again confronted the person. Witnesses told police they saw Foster standing over the person as they sat in the vehicle. Foster reportedly again attacked the person, which is when the person discharged the gun from within the car. Two shots were fired and Foster was hit once in the chest.

    The person told police when they fired they were in imminent fear of death, according to the release.

    "The witnesses and physical, digital and forensic evidence establish that the situation that led to the shooting was brought about by Mr. Foster, and his death was a direct result of those actions," according to the release.

    Suspected robber hospitalized after being shot by victim in Oak Lawn
    A man in the Oak Lawn district of Dallas shot and injured a person Saturday morning while he says he was being robbed.

    The suspect is in police custody at the hospital, but police aren’t releasing any further details about the person.

    Police say the robbery happened at Cedar Springs and Hawthorne just before 3:30 in the morning.

    The suspect approached the victim trying to rob them, but at that point the victim pulled a gun out and shot the suspect, who then fled to a hospital.

    photo
    The incident is the latest in a string of violent robberies and assaults that have happened in oak lawn in recent weeks which have the neighborhood on high alert.

    “Everyone's on heightened alert down here. We saw this several years ago, the string of robberies and attacks down here. We're paying very close attention as a community down here to this string of robberies and assaults,” said co-founder of neighborhood watch group Take Back Oak Lawn Lee Daughtry.

    Reps with the group say they're working to get emergency call boxes installed in the area and plan to have increased volunteer patrols, especially on busy weekend nights like tonight.

    Residents and business owners have also met with Dallas Police for crime watch meetings and a town hall multiple times in the last few weeks to talk strategy and crime prevention.

    Man at Drive-Thru Shoots Restaurant Robbery Suspect
    The 60-year-old robbery suspect was shot by a person at the restaurant's drive-thru window

    Drive-Thru Customer Shoots Robber

    A 60-year-old man in Santa Ana was robbing a restaurant early Saturday morning and taking cash from the register when a second man at the drive-thru window took out a gun, started shooting and struck the robbery suspect.

    The robbery suspect was shot twice in the upper torso area according to the Santa Ana Police Department, and the shooting suspect drove off. No description of the shooting suspect was immediately available.

    After the chaotic scene, the robber did not get far and collapsed outside the Cozy Corner Drive-In, where the shooting took place. Police took the robbery suspect, who was also a shooting victim, to a nearby hospital, where he remained on Saturday being treated for gunshot wounds.

    The shooter was alone in a silver sedan, according to restaurant employees and the surveillance video that caught the unbelievable exchange.

    On Saturday afternoon, the restaurant was open for business even with fresh gunshot holes visible in the glass, wood counter and even the register. The staff, understandably, was still shaken up.

    The restaurant's manager, Francisco Reyno, says he's just happy that none of his employees were hurt and that the stolen money was immediately recovered. What was the amount that caused all this trouble?

    "$274," Reyno says

    Mysterious, wolf-like animal shot in central Montana, DNA tests underway
    Posted 7:39 pm, May 26, 2018, by Associated Press
    DENTON, Mont. (AP) — A central Montana rancher shot a wolf-like animal after it was spotted in a pasture with livestock, but a closer look prompted state wildlife officials to take DNA samples to determine what type of animal it was.

    Fish, Wildlife and Parks regional spokesman Bruce Auchly said the animal’s front claws and canine teeth are too short and its ears are too tall in proportion to its skull for it to be a purebred wolf.

    The animal was shot on May 16 near Denton.

    Wolf management specialist Ty Smucker says the animal could be a wolf-dog hybrid. The DNA tests haven’t been returned.

    Warden Zach Norris says the rancher was within his rights to kill the animal because it was seen near livestock, domestic dogs and children.
