    Here’s the whole story for this one from earlier.

    http://abc3340.com/news/local/calhou...ct-at-gunpoint
    Calhoun County teenager credited with holding burglary suspect at gunpoint
    ANNISTON, Ala. (WBMA) —
    A teenage boy armed with a pistol was credited for helping capture one of six suspects authorities say were involved in a string of break-ins last week across Calhoun County.

    Patrick Denson told ABC 33/40 News he wasn't sure what he'd find when he walked behind his grandparent's house on July 4th. He went to check the home after he heard about the manhunt nearby,

    "I heard some sheriff's yelling in the woods and so I stood up on top one of the air conditioners and one of the suspects came running around the corner and I held the gun up on him and told him to freeze and I held him there until the police arrived and arrested him....he kept saying he didn't do anything wrong."

    The teenager Denson helped capture near Camp Lee was one of six juveniles from Georgia involved in a string of break-in's and car burglaries between July 3rd-4th said Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade. The sheriff said each one faces charges related to more than 72 reported break-in attempts in the City of Anniston and Calhoun County.

    "That was their job. Go out and commit as much crime as possible."

    Stolen guns were recovered from the suspects' getaway car according to the sheriff. A girl in the group had been indicted on at least 20 felony charges in her home state Wade said. Authorities were not able to release the names of the suspects because they will be charged as juveniles.

    "Just because they're young doesn't mean they weren't dangerous," said the sheriff.

    Denson said he was not sure he would have confronted the suspect had he known of the group's alleged criminal past. "They didn't believe it at first," said Denson of when he told his parent's what happened. "But I told them the Sheriff was there and everything. They were startled, making sure I was okay."

    Wade said Denson will have a job waiting for him at the sheriff's office if he ever needs it.

    "I gave him a coin. I wish I could have given him more..we're very thankful he did what he did. We're very proud of him."

    Calhoun County youth held alleged teen criminal at gunpoint

    Patrick Denson, a 17 year old who held two crime suspects at gunpoint last week when they crossed his path last week running from sheriff's deputies.

    On the Fourth of July, Patrick Denson nearly saw a different kind of fireworks.

    Seventeen-year-old Denson held a theft suspect — also a juvenile — at gunpoint on his grandparents’ property just north of Choccolocco Road last Wednesday while police arrived to arrest him.

    2 shot, 2 charged in Hyde Park home invasion
    By Freeman staffUpdated: 6 hrs ago

    HYDE PARK, N.Y. >> A Willow Cross Road resident was shot in the shoulder after shooting an intruder with a shotgun during a home invasion and attempted robbery, police said Tuesday.

    The two suspects in the home invasion — Montarius J. Washington, 31, of Hyde Park, and Cali A. Hamilton, 21, of Poughkeepsie — were charged with the felonies of attempted robbery and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the Hyde Park Police department.

    About 2:10 a.m. Sunday, police responded to a 911 call reporting a female had been shot. The investigation found Collin W. Vogg, 27, was at his residence on Willow Cross Road when Washington and Hamilton entered, displayed a handgun and demanded money and drugs, police said.

    After retrieving a “hidden shotgun,” Vogg pointed it at Washington, “informing him that he was not giving him anything,” police said.

    Hamilton then shot Vogg in the shoulder, and he returned fire, striking her in the arm, police said. After being shot, Hamilton fled and called 911 from a neighboring yard, police said.

    Washington remained inside the house and locked himself in a bathroom, but Vogg let him to leave before officers arrived, police said.

    When Hyde Park police, state police and Dutchess County sheriff’s deputies arrived, Vogg’s residence was “searched and secured” and Vogg was taken to the Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie, where he was treated and released.

    Hamilton was taken to the MidHudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie and then transferred to the Westchester Medical Center with an injury that was not life-threatening, police said.

    Washington was arrested about three hours later by state troopers when they saw him walking along a road about 2 miles from the scene, police said. He was arraigned in Hyde Park Town Court and sent to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bail.

    Hamilton was arraigned at Westchester Medical Center, and her bail was set at $150,000.

    Good Samaritan with a gun stops possible shooter outside restaurant

    NORTH NAPLES
    Customers at the Jack’s Bait Shop in North Naples got the scare of their life when one man tried to wreak havoc outside.

    If it wasn’t for Good Samaritan, named Tom, standing by, an evening out could have turned into someone’s worse nightmare.

    “You wonder, is this ever going to happen to me, and it did,” Tom said.

    According to witnesses, what Tom did may have prevented a tragedy.

    “I pulled into Jack’s, just walked in to grab a beer. Walked outside to sit down, and there was a table of ladies to the right of me,” Tom said. “Almost immediately, this black Lincoln pulled up with all dark windows and he did a hell of a burnout.”

    Tom says what happened next was a blur.

    Tom says a man, who deputies later identified and arrested as Keith Zavattaro, 55, of Naples, drove back to the front of the building, stopped and then slowly rolled down his window to then point what looked like a gun.

    “So I got behind the cement pillar and showed my pistol, and he took off out of there really quick,” Tom said.

    According to the arrest report, other people outside also saw the gun.

    Zavattaro, a regular to Jack’s Bait Shop, was just kicked out of the bar for causing problems earlier that day.

    Investigators say Zavattaro gave deputies a hard time when they tried to arrest him at his house by hitting and kicking them.

    Deputies say they couldn’t find a gun in his car, but Zavattaro will face charges of battery on a law enforcement officer.

    “I just know it is a crazy world,” Tom said. “You never figure it’s going to happen to you, but it happened last night.”

    Homeowner shoots pit bull who mauled and killed family pet in Oak Cliff

    One of the dogs ran off when the family ran outside to save Rocky. The other pit bull clenched its teeth around Rocky's neck, dragging him. They say the dog wouldn't let go.

    It is a painful week for a group of family members who watched their beloved little dog die a violent death. A couple of loose pit bulls invaded the family’s back yard, killing a poodle-mix named Rocky.

    “My dad saw the dog and he started, you know, banging on the dog to see if it would let it go…” Nayleen Flores said.

    It is the latest dog attack in southern Dallas. Flores says her family is devastated, after two loose and healthy looking pit bulls mauled and killed her family pet. Rocky belonged to Flores’ three-year old nephew.

    "My dad’s first instinct was to save Rocky,” Flores said as she detailed how the family sprung into action. “He grabbed a metal rod and just started hitting it.”

    The family says it is likely the pit bulls squeezed under the fence. One of the dogs ran off when the family ran outside to save Rocky. The other pit bull clenched its teeth around Rocky’s neck, dragging him. They say the dog wouldn’t let go.

    "My cousin turned a hose on and started dousing it,” Flores said. “It still wouldn’t work. In the end my mom was like, get the gun, you’ve got to save Rocky.”

    The teen’s dad shot and killed the pit bull. The only thing they have to remember Rocky by, right now, is his collar and some photos.

    Workers with Dallas Animal Services say they’ve been aggressively tackling issues involving loose and dangerous dogs.

    "We realize, for sure, that it is an owned dog problem,” said Ann Barnes, a Field Services Manager with Dallas Animal Services.

    Pet owners are being reminded the City of Dallas recently passed new ordinances created to hold irresponsible dog owners accountable.

    "If your dog is not restrained, and it bites somebody or harms another animal, there is a criminal offense now with the new ordinances," Barnes said.

    The Flores family says investigators told them they would be checking the dead pit bull for a chip to possibly identify its owner.

    For now, the family is still trying to figure out how to tell a three-year-old little boy he will not be able to hug his best friend Rocky again.

    Would-be robbery victim calls 911, reports he shot suspect in Dayton
    Updated July 11, 2018 DAYTON —
    A 23-year-old man who shot another man multiple times tonight told police he shot his would-be robber.

    Police were called at 7:30 p.m. to the Marathon gas station and convenience store at 119 N. James H. McGee Blvd. in Dayton.


    (JIM NOELKER / STAFF)

    The 911 caller said the other man, who also was armed, fled in a blue Chevrolet Cruze, but not before he dropped his gun, according to the Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center.

    The shooting victim, a 22-year-old man, was shot multiple times, Dayton police Lt. Steven Bauer said.

    A worker said the incident happened at one of the gas pumps.

    The gunshot victim was found inside his car a short distance away, on Home Avenue near U.S. 35 and was taken to Miami Valley Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, the lieutenant said.

    Yellow crime scene tape surrounded the parking lot, and the shooter was in back of a cruiser while police investigated and the Marathon station and Subway restaurant inside were closed.

    Bauer said two weapons were recovered, and that police are trying to determine exactly what happened.

    “There was clearly some type of confrontation. What stemmed it or what caused it is what were still investigating,” Bauer said.

    Teen tried to take 79-year-old woman's car at gunpoint in Cleveland, report says

    An unidentified teen tried to take a 79-year-old woman's car at gunpoint Tuesday in Cleveland's Broadway-Slavic Village neighborhood, police said.(File photo)
    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- An unidentified teen tried to take a 79-year-old woman's car at gunpoint Tuesday in Cleveland's Broadway-Slavic Village neighborhood, police said.

    The woman was not harmed in the attempted carjacking that happened just before 3 p.m. on East 71st Street near Harvard Avenue, according to a police report.

    No arrests have been made in the case, the report says.

    The woman had just arrived home in her brown 2000 Chevrolet Malibu when the teen, who appeared to be roughly 17 years old, approached her car and opened a door.

    The teen pointed a gun at the woman and said "get out, I'm taking your car," the report says.

    The woman's grandson was in her house and saw the attempted carjacking through a window. The grandson grabbed his own gun, ran outside and told the teen to leave his grandmother alone, the report says.

    The teen ran away toward Harvard Avenue. Several other males followed him, the grandson told police.

    Des Moines business owner fatally shoots burglary suspect, police say
    Linh TaUpdated 2:38 p.m. CT July 11, 2018
    Gov. Terry Branstad signed a comprehensive rewrite that touches nearly every aspect of Iowa's firearms laws Wochit

    A store owner fatally shot a burglary suspect Wednesday morning following a confrontation, Des Moines police say.

    Police were called to Kraft 5 Star Muffler on Army Post Road on a report of a burglary around 7:15 a.m. En route, officers learned the burglary suspect was shot by the store owner. On arrival, they found a man’s body, according to police.

    There was a confrontation between the burglary suspect and the business owner and the owner shot him, Des Moines police spokesman Sgt. Paul Parizek said.

    The burglary suspect had driven up to the business in an out-of-state stolen truck and was loading items from Kraft 5 Star Muffler, Parizek said. When the owner came in for work, he found the suspect. Instead of fleeing, the man confronted the store owner, Parizek said.

    Parizek said at first blush, “it certainly looks like Stand Your Ground” will be applied in the case, but the county attorney will decide.

    Polk County Attorney John Sarcone said his office will wait until the police department finishes their investigation before deciding whether or not to file charges.

    Parizek didn't know if the burglar was armed. No one has been arrested. The store owner was not injured.

    Retired LEO uses 2 AR-15s to take down shooter on campground
    The retired officer shot the man who police said fired at random people during a multi-county crime spree

    Yesterday at 1:33 PM

    By PoliceOne Staff

    DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — A retired police officer stopped a gunman who police said fired at random people during a multi-county crime spree.

    On July 2, police pursued 29-year-old Austin Benson after receiving a report that he stole a vehicle, KOAA reported. Authorities said Benson was shooting at random vehicles during the pursuit, according to KUSA.

    Benson eventually drove onto an occupied campsite and started yelling, police said. A family drove by to check on Benson when witnesses said Benson fired a round at them.

    According to an affidavit, a retired officer from Alabama, 51-year-old Wesley Mattox, said he was camping with his wife when he heard Benson yelling.

    When Mattox approached Benson, the suspect reportedly told him “to get him water and that the law was after him.” Benson had a rifle in his hand and pointed it at the retired officer, the affidavit stated.

    Mattox then gave his wife a gun and told her to take cover before taking out an AR-15 and ordering Benson to drop his weapon. Benson drove away and started shooting at Mattox, who returned fire.

    The affidavit said Benson eventually crashed into a tree. The retired officer told deputies that after he thought his used all of his ammunition for his rifle, he pulled out a second AR-15 out of his truck and fired one more shot to see of Benson would react since he didn’t see any movement from him after the crash.

    Manitou Springs police officers arrived at the scene and investigated the incident. Police said Benson was shot “several times” in the arm and face but survived.

    Benson faces several charges, including six charges for attempted first-degree murder. Deputies said they initially thought Benson stole the vehicle he was driving, but later learned he had permission to drive it.

    Police said no one else was injured during the incident.

    Joplin resident fires shot during reported break-in attempt
    Jeff Lehr29 min ago
    Police responded to a report of a burglary with shots fired early Wednesday morning in the 4100 block of South Pennsylvania Avenue in Joplin.

    Jeremy J. Angel, 24, told police that he heard someone breaking into the back of his home about 6 a.m. and grabbed his rifle.

    Police Capt. Trevor Duncan said Angel told police that he fired a single shot in an effort to ward off any intruder. Since he was uncertain if anyone was still in his home or not, police performed a sweep of the residence without finding anyone still there, Duncan said.

    Officers subsequently determined that the shot Angel fired traveled out of his house and passed through the foundation of the house next door into a crawlspace. Nothing was reported stolen from the residence, Duncan said.
