    OFFICIALS: Smith County homeowner, neighbor shoot at suspects attempting to run them down in vehicle following burglary attempt
    The incident occurred just before 1 a.m. on Saturday.


    SMITH COUNTY, Texas — The Smith County Sheriffs Office is investigating an overnight shooting incident.

    According to the SCSO, on Saturday, just before 1 a.m., officials were called to the scene of a burglary in progress in the 15000 block of County Road 1356, in southern Smith County.

    The sheriff's office says the homeowner claimed he came home from work and saw a vehicle pull up to the front of his house with the lights off and several males got out of the vehicle. He stated he then saw the men walking around his vehicle, which was parked in the driveway. The homeowner believed that the men were trying to break into his car.

    The SCSO reports the homeowner walked out of his house armed with a gun and fired several shots into the air. At this time, the men ran away, according to the homeowner. Authorities say the homeowner went back inside his house to call 911 as the suspect vehicle drove away from his residence, headed in the direction of where the men had run.

    The homeowner came back outside and met with his neighbor, who was now outside, armed with a firearm, as well. The homeowner was explaining the incident to his neighbor as he was still on the phone with 911.

    According to law enforcement, at this time, the suspect vehicle approached both of them at a high rate of speed and with its lights off and both the homeowner and the neighbor felt their lives were in danger as the vehicle approached. The homeowner fired several rounds toward the vehicle and the neighbor fired at least once. The vehicle was struck with the and swerved off the road into the homeowner’s yard. The vehicle then crossed the road and drove into a wooded area. All of the occupants then ran from the vehicle and into the woods.

    A short time later, one of the men in the vehicle came out of the woods and told the neighbor he had been shot. A deputy had just arrived on scene and requested EMS. When paramedics responded, the man was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

    Smith County investigators were able to interview the man who they say admitted to driving the suspect vehicle, along with two passengers. The SCSO says the man also confessed the group had broken into several other vehicles just prior to this incident. Investigators also determined the suspect vehicle was stolen.

    The additional suspects are still at large and the known suspect’s name is being withheld pending additional charges.

    This investigation is ongoing and CBS19 will update this article as more information becomes available.

    DA: Domestic violence suspect confronted by armed neighbor sentenced to 11 years in prison
    REDDING, Calif. —

    A domestic violence suspect who was confronted by an armed neighbor was sentenced to 11 years in state prison on Thursday.

    According to the Shasta County District Attorney's Office, Carl Hulsey III plead to one count of corporal injury to a spouse, assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury and admitted to causing great bodily injury for each count, causing each count to be considered a violent “strike” conviction.

    On September 26, Hulsey's wife who had been staying at One Safe Place in Redding returned to her home along with her sister to collect some of her belongings.

    Authorities say as she entered through the door of her home, Hulsey threw various belongings at her face and slammed the door on her foot several times causing injury and pinning her in the threshold. Husley then began punching the victim in the face, chest and head. She then fell with her foot caught in the door, screaming towards her sister for help.

    Her sister ran to the front door to help but was met by Hulsey who authorities say began punching her, knocking her to the ground.

    A neighbor also witnessed Hulsey strike the sister in the head with a brick.

    The say Hulsey then strangled the victim's sister by placing his knee on her neck. She was not able to breathe, her vision went dark and she lost consciousness briefly.

    The sister regained consciousness and saw Hulsey getting in her car in an attempt to drive away. The sister entered the vehicle through the passenger side in an unsuccessful attempt to keep Hulsey from leaving with the car.

    Hulsey was able to leave in the car with the sister as an unwilling passenger, making threats that they were going to die together.

    The incident ended shortly after when Hulsey stopped at a Win River Mini Mart at the corner of South Bonnyview Road and Eastside Road in Redding.

    As Hulsey entered the market the sister managed to message a neighbor who had witnessed the altercation of her whereabouts.

    When Hulsey returned from the market, the neighbor confronted Hulsey about the altercation and held him at gunpoint.

    Hulsey fled to a nearby field but was eventually found and detained with the help of a CHP helicopter, Redding police officer Travis Williams and his partner K9 Otto.

    EPD: Fatal shooting behind Sportsman's being investigated as possible self defense
    Isaiah SeibertUpdated 5:38 p.m. CT Oct. 15, 2019
    Video: EPD provides update on the early morning shooting Sunday behind Sportsman's MaCabe Brown, Courier & Press

    EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Police are investigating a fatal weekend shooting at a popular Franklin Street bar as a possible self defense case.

    The shooting took place at sportsman's Grille & Billiards around 12:45 a.m. Sunday. Of-duty officers working at the bar found Laren Hall, 23, shot in the alley behind the establishment. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

    Multiple witnesses at the scene reported seeing a group of five or six men sprint toward two men at the back of the bar, EPD spokesman Sgt. Jason Cullum said at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

    One witness, an employee on break at the restaurant, reported seeing a man fall to the ground and being beaten up before shots were fired.

    911 calls from shooting behind Sportsman's Grille & Billiards Sunday Provide, Evansville Courier & Press

    Police believe Hall was one of the men involved in the alleged assault.

    Surveillance video at nearby businesses corroborate witness accounts of the events leading up to Hall's death, Cullum said, but there is no video of either assault or shooting.

    The coroner's office earlier said it would conduct an autopsy on Hall's body Monday afternoon. Vanderburgh County Coroner Steve Lockyear said Hall died of single gunshot wound to the chest.

    At the scene, a responding officer found a man with the gun. The officer disarmed the man, who had injuries to his face, and detained him without incident, Cullum said.

    A second man, 27-year-old James Bales of Shoals, also had apparent injuries. Police are not releasing the identity of the man with the gun because he is the subject of an ongoing investigation. The man has not spoken to police, invoking his fifth amendment rights, Cullum said.

    No criminal charges have been fired, and the investigation is ongoing. Police are encouraging any potential witnesses to come forward

    Prosecutors: Man with gun permit won’t be charged in shooting that injured 15-year-old in St. Paul

    Mara H. GottfriedOctober 15, 2019 at 2:19 pm
    Prosecutors have decided a man with a gun permit was justified when he shot and wounded a 15-year-old boy in St. Paul last spring.

    Surveillance footage showed the 27-year-old man was walking when a vehicle pulled up, four people exited and ran “full speed” in his direction, according to a police report.

    The man ran away from them “as fast as he could for as long as he could,” but they were gaining on him, said his attorney, Tim Webb.

    “It was clearly a case of self defense,” Webb said recently. “He felt he had no options and he was scared for his life.”

    The man, who has a permit to carry a handgun, fired and shot a 15-year-old in the chin.

    The Ramsey County Attorney’s Office concluded earlier this month that based on evidence collected by police, including video from the area, the use of force “was reasonable and justified” and he would not be charged, said Dennis Gerhardstein, the office’s spokesman.

    The man moved after the shooting because he was worried people “would come looking for him” and he’s still concerned for his safety, Webb said.

    FRIENDS BROUGHT TEEN TO HOSPITAL

    The shooting happened shortly before 1 a.m. on May 24. The man called 911 to report “he was attacked by multiple people and took two shots at the group and may have hit one of the people,” according to a police report.

    The man told police he just purchased a new car and didn’t yet have a permit to park by his address, so he parked nearby and was walking at Jackson and Mount Airy streets, north of the Capitol and Regions Hospital. A sedan drove by him quickly, but then the driver backed up, drove past again and parked.

    When males got out of the vehicle and started following him, he walked faster and then ran as they ran toward him. He said they were yelling something at him. Police reports don’t specify why they were running at the man.

    The man turned to face them, pointed his gun at the male closest to him and fired two rounds, according to the report. He said they all ran away, got back in the sedan and left.

    Soon after, a 15-year-old was brought to Regions Hospital by three other juveniles. They initially told an officer it was a drive-by shooting, but two of them later “refused to give information about how their friend … was injured,” a police report said.

    Another said they were walking down a street, possibly University Avenue, when someone drove by in a vehicle and shot at them. The 15-year-old reported he heard two quick “pops” then realized he was shot at.

    The teen was treated for his injury and ran out of the hospital in his underwear and socks, according to a police report. A Hennepin County child protection services worker informed an investigator the teen had an active warrant because he fled three shelters in the previous two weeks.

    The boy’s mother described him as “a chronic runaway” and said “she has no idea how or why he was in St. Paul,” the investigator wrote in a report.

    The investigator told the mother “the circumstances surrounding him being shot may be different than what he told the police,” the report continued. She responded “she would not be surprised that he was not honest with the police.”

    In a separate case a month earlier in St. Paul, the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office charged a man, who had a permit to carry a gun, with assault.

    Vincent Nesta Trotter is accused of wounding an auto theft suspect who ran from a crash and into his yard in the Payne-Phalen area. Prosecutors say the man was walking away when Trotter shot him. Trotter has pleaded not guilty and his court case is ongoing.

    Lauderdale Co. murder charge dismissed after judge makes ‘stand your ground’ ruling

    October 14, 2019 at 2:02 PM CDT - Updated October 14 at 4:54 PM
    FLORENCE, Ala. (WAFF) - A murder charge against Marcus Weakley was dismissed this month after a Lauderdale County Judge made a self defense ruling at a pretrial hearing.

    Weakley was indicted for the murder of Patton Shipley in August 2018.

    [ READ MORE: Man arrested for murder in Florence ]

    Weakley’s attorney successfully argued that he killed Shipley in self defense.

    According to the judge’s ruling, Weakley was tackled by a third man and was then fired on by Shipley. The judge said testimony showed that Weakley only started shooting after he was already under fire.

    The judge did note that some testimony was conflicting, and said he would prefer to have the case play out before a jury, however he said that Alabama law required he make a ruling before the case went to trial. The Judge said after weighing the evidence that the charge had to be dismissed.

    Lauderdale County District Attorney Chris Connolly says an appeal was filed on Friday. He says the state attorney general will take over the appeal.

    Dayton family outraged that brother shot by clerk while robbing store
    GOPUSA StaffDayton Daily NewsPOSTED ON 6:53 AM OCTOBER 14, 2019124


    A Dollar General clerk fatally shot an armed robber Wednesday night inside the store at 2228 North Gettysburg Avenue.

    “I just had somebody try to attempt and rob me over here at Dollar General on Gettysburg,” the 911 caller said. “Came in with a firearm, threatened to take money out the drawer, pointed a gun at me and my staff members.”

    The suspect, believed to be in his 20s, entered the store about 6:20 p.m. with a firearm, and the clerk shot him after he demanded money, Dayton police Sgt. Thomas Schloss said.

    “He pointed a gun at me, I had a firearm on me, I pulled my firearm and I shot him in self-defense,” the caller said.

    Montgomery County Coroner Dr. Kent Harshbarger said Roosevelt Rappley, 23, of Dayton, was pronounced dead at the the scene.


    Schloss said the suspect walked out of the store after being shot and collapsed outside the front doors.

    “He’s laying in front of my store,” said the caller. “He’s laying down in front of my door on the sidewalk.”

    It’s not clear how many shots were fired, but when dispatchers asked the caller if the suspect fired any shots in the store, he said, “he shot back.”

    It’s also not clear if the robber showed his gun or told the clerk he had one.
