    Nacogdoches homeowner shoots at alleged burglars, 1 possibly injured
    The Nacogdoches Police Department responded to a home invasion in the 1800 block of Martin Luther King Jr Blvd.


    LUFKIN, Texas — The Lufkin Police Department is investigating after a man allegedly threatened and robbed a Whataburger early Monday morning.

    According to Lufkin PD, the incident happened at the Whataburger on North Timberland Drive around 3 a.m.

    Police say the subject leaned over and slid the cashier a note that stated “Don’t make me kill you. Listen. Open up the cash register. Give me all the cash. I swear I will blow your (expletive) brains out if you try any slick (expletive). Try me.”

    The subject showed a pistol in his waistband and followed the employee behind the counter. He then got money from both registers before fleeing on foot toward the rear of the building.

    Police describe the robber as a black male wearing a light brown cap, black dew rag over his face, long-sleeve camo T-shirt with a sleeveless black sports jersey with a “3” on the back and dark slacks. He had been carrying a small, black bag with a rope handle.

    The Lufkin Police Department is investigating the incident.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the department at 936-633-0356 or CrimeStoppers at 936-639-TIPS.

    Deputies credit armed employee with stopping potential mass shooting at bar
    NEWNAN, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta)
    - Deputies in Coweta County say an armed off-duty employee may have stopped a mass shooting at a crowded bar in Newnan Saturday morning.

    FOX 5 News has the exclusive surveillance video of the shooting outside Fat Boys Bar and Grill on Highway 16. Deputies say that video shows Kevintez Mathewis on his way into the bar with a handgun when Ben McCoy confronts him and is shot multiple times. He drew the gunman's attention and then drew his fire.

    Deputies say the security footage also shows Mathewis being ejected from the bar and earlier when security there had confronted him numerous times about his behavior Saturday morning.

    Mathewis is seen on video repeatedly trying to get back into the bar and repeatedly security turning him away. Deputies say McCoy became concerned by Mathewis' warnings that he was going to return and shoot up the bar. They say this video shows McCoy placing a small-caliber rifle in from the back of his SUV into the back seat.

    It appears that McCoy shouts to him and Mathewis is then seen opening fire.

    Another camera angle shows Mathewis pursuing McCoy and firing continuously with his handgun even after McCoy is down. Deputies say he then grabs McCoy's rifle and runs away.

    Deputies say Kevintez Mathewis is 27-years-old. He was later tracked down by police K-9 and arrested. Deputies have charged him with aggravated assault.

    Ben McCoy was shot four to six times. They are not exactly sure of the exact number. He has undergone surgery at Atlanta Medical Center.

    And deputies credit McCoy with stopping what could have been a mass shooting inside the bar.

    Cops: West Side homeowner wounds backyard intruder
    Chicago Tribune staff
    Chicago Tribune |

    Aug 20, 2019 | 6:16 PM

    An East Garfield Park homeowner shot and wounded an intruder at his West Side home early Tuesday morning, authorities said.

    The alleged intruder, who remained hospitalized Tuesday afternoon, was later charged with misdemeanors connected to the 5 a.m. incident in the 2900 block of West Walnut Avenue in the East Garfield Park neighborhood, according to police.

    The 54-year-old homeowner told police he discovered the unknown man in his locked backyard and verbally instructed the man to leave, according to a police spokeswoman. But the intruder allegedly “balled up his fist” and approached the homeowner, who, fearing an attack, opened fire with a 9mm handgun, striking the intruder in the upper left thigh, police said.

    He was taken to Mount Sinai where he was listed in good condition. The 49-year-old was later charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass to real property and simple assault, police said. It’s unclear if the wounded man made a statement to investigators, but the spokeswoman considered the incident a case of trespassing or a possible burglary.

    The homeowner, who had a valid Firearms Owners Identification Card and concealed carry permit, was questioned by police, but later released without charges because the shooting appeared to be self-defense.

    Under state law, a legal gun owner may fire their weapon if they “reasonably believe” they’re subject to an imminent deadly attack by another person.

    The homeowner couldn’t be reached for comment Tuesday evening.

    Wilmington, Illinois Residents Told To Stay Inside During Manhunt
    Riley O'NeilAugust 21, 2019

    Wilmington (population 5,724), in Will County, is approximately 60 miles southwest from downtown Chicago.

    Authorities said multiple agencies are conducting an active manhunt for the suspect in the Northcrest area of Wilmington, that started around 4am Wednesday.

    It all started when just before midnight, an armed carjacking occurred in Calumet City. The vehicle was spotted by Dolton police around 1am Wednesday, which instigated a police chase that eventually stretched about 30 miles to Wilmington.

    The two suspects ventured onto Interstate 57, and before long, Illinois State Police and other agencies joined in the pursuit. Police said the offenders were traveling over 100 miles an hour at times.

    WGN News:

    The pursuit ended after the two offenders crashed through a fence in a subdivision. The two then fled on foot.

    A homeowner, who wants to remain anonymous, confronted one of suspects who came into his home.

    The homeowner said his dog alerted him of a possible intruder, so he grabbed his gun and called out, "if someone is inside the house leave now." The suspect allegedly yelled back at the man, and said, "I'm not leaving!"

    That's when the homeowner fired one shot at the suspect. The suspect then allegedly told the homeowner "I don't want to die tonight," and left out the back door.

    Police were able to capture the suspect soon after that encounter. The other suspect remains at large.

    Residents in the area have been asked to stay in their homes as police conduct the search, and all Wilmington schools are on a delayed start

    Home invasion suspects tied to armed carjacking of teacher, police say

    GWINETT COUNTY, Ga. - Channel 2 Action News has confirmed that three crimes stretching at least 40 miles are all connected.

    Channel 2’s Tyisha Fernandes first reported on Monday that someone carjacked a teacher outside Heritage Elementary School in south Fulton County.

    Then there was home invasion and shooting overnight on Terrace Court in Peachtree Corners.

    Content Continues Below
    It ended when a victim from that shooting called for help on Bolton Road in northwest Atlanta early Tuesday morning. Police say he was in the car stolen in the carjacking.

    When the two teens suspects tried to commit a home invasion in Peachtree Corners, things didn’t go as planned, according to officers.

    Gwinnett County police say someone inside the apartment shot one of the teens before they could steal anything.


    Police say the suspects left the apartments before officers arrived. That when investigators said they headed to Atlanta to a home on Bolton Road.

    Someone there called police and said a teenager was shot in the arm and stomach.

    When Atlanta police got to the house, they said the teen wouldn’t tell them who shot him or what happened. But he did tell police he was riding in a white Dodge Challenger.

    Police figured out the car is the same white Challenger someone took from a teacher at gunpoint at Heritage Elementary on Monday.

    Fulton County Schools Director of Safety Shannon Flounnory said the carjacking had nothing to do with someone targeting Heritage Elementary, that it was a thief who came to the school’s neighborhood looking to get rid of a stolen car he was already driving.

    “We don’t feel that anyone else is in danger at this particular point. This was a crime of opportunity,” Flounnory said.

    Now, school police are trying to connect the dots and figure out if any of the teen suspects carjacked the teacher.

    Parents are eager to find out.

    "That could've been me coming in the morning. It's scary," parent Savion Thomas said.

    Shooting results in death of a Mississippi man. Sheriff said it's most likely self-defense
    Deputies responded to a fight and fatal shooting on Little Black Creek Road in Lumberton on Sunday, Aug. 18, 2019.

    A man was shot to death Sunday night in Lamar County, but he may have been shot in self-defense, Sheriff Danny Rigel said.

    Thirty-one-year-old Henry Johnson of Lumberton was pronounced dead on arrival at a local hospital, Coroner Cody Creel said.

    The shooting occurred around 7 p.m. on Little Black Creek Road in Lumberton. A 911 call came in about a fight at the location. Another call came in soon after to report one of the suspects had been shot twice.

    When deputies arrived, two people were performing cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on the shooting victim. One of them told deputies he was the person who shot Johnson.

    After talking to witnesses and investigating the scene, Rigel said the shooting appears to have been in self-defense.

    Rigel said several witnesses who saw the fight told deputies the victim was the aggressor. They said the fight started at one location. The shooter left the scene but the victim followed him to another location and continued the fight.

    "(Johnson) kept beating up on him," Rigel said, adding there was a gun in the glovebox of the truck the shooter was in. "The guy came running at him and he told him to stop but he wouldn't so he shot him twice — and then performed CPR on him."

    Rigel said once the investigation and autopsy is complete, the case will be turned over to the district attorney's office to be presented to a grand jury.

    No charges have been filed at this time, Rigel said.

    Police: Neighbors tackle incoherent Florida man after he throws brick through window

    WINTER HAVEN, Fla. - Residents of a Lake Howard community held a man at gunpoint, before tackling him, after he threw a brick through a window of a neighbor’s home, Winter Haven police said.

    A witness began banging on his own window in hopes of interrupting Patterson. Patterson then turned his attention on the neighbor and threw a brick into the window, shattering the glass, officers said.

    The resident then grabbed his firearm as Patterson walked toward him, officers said. The resident fired one round in the direction of the broken window where Patterson was approaching, authorities said.

    The shot did not hit Patterson.

    The resident of the first home confronted Patterson, and both neighbors tackled him and held him down until police arrived, investigators said.

    Police said Patterson was taken to Winter Haven Hospital to be medically evaluated.

    “After being interviewed, it is still unclear why Patterson acted in the manner he did," a news release said.

    Once Patterson was medically cleared, he was taken to the Polk County Jail on charges of throwing a deadly missile at building, attempted burglary of dwelling, burglary of an occupied structure and aggravated assault with deadly weapon.

    Wow, I think this the first one I’ve posted that took place in Washington D.C

    Legal gun owner fears robbery, shoots suspect at bus stop, D.C. police say
    Peter Hermann

    A man with a permit to carry a firearm in the District shot and wounded someone he thought was about to rob him Tuesday afternoon at a bus stop in Northeast Washington, according to D.C. police.

    Police said the wounded man and a second suspect have been charged with assault with intent to commit robbery. They were identified as Nigel Pulliam, 26, and Keith Lamont Blue, also 26. Both are from Southeast Washington.

    Police did not identify which of the men had been shot.

    The incident occurred shortly before 2 p.m. when police said two men approached the victim in the 500 block of H Street NE, blocked his path and made statements indicating a possible robbery.

    An arrest affidavit filed in D.C. Superior Court says one of the men was armed with a handgun with an extended magazine, and the other man held his hand under his shirt as if he had a firearm.

    The victim told police he tried to walk away but was again blocked by one of the men who said, “Don’t move,” the affidavit says.

    Police said the intended victim “brandished his lawfully possessed firearm and shot at the suspect, striking him in the arm.” Police said they recovered 10 bullet casings.

    A police report made public on Wednesday says the windows of four businesses on the H Street commercial strip were damaged — two restaurants, a clothing store and a cash express shop.

    [Hundreds of people apply for gun permits as District’s rules ease]

    Police said the man who fired his gun called 911.

    In October 2017, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit struck down a key provision of the city law that had required residents to show a “good reason” to carry a firearm outside the home.

    Since then, D.C. police said 4,448 people have applied for a conceal carry license, and 3,387 have been approved. Shootings involving a person with a legal gun in the District remain rare.

    Police said they are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting to determine if it was justified.

    The man who fired the gun could not be reached for comment on Wednesday.

    Correction: An earlier version of this story mistakenly said the man who fired had a gun with an extended magazine.
