UPDATE: Man Guns Down 2 NYPD, Commits Suicide in Subway Station

The suspect, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, wrote on an Instagram account: “I’m putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours, let’s take 2 of theirs.”

Brinsley went to the home of a former girlfriend in Owings Mills in the Baltimore area and shot and wounded her around 5:45 a.m. on Sunday, reports CBS Baltimore. That victim is expected to survive.

Criminal records show Brinsley has a history of arrests on various charges in Georgia, including robbery, shoplifting, carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct and obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

An armed man walked up to two New York Police Department officers sitting inside a patrol car and opened fire Saturday afternoon, shooting both of them fatally before running into a nearby subway station and committing suicide, police said.

The shooting took place in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood. Both officers were rushed to Woodhull hospital, where one was pronounced dead, police said. The second officer was later pronounced dead at the hospital. That death was confirmed by two officials, a senior city official and a law enforcement official, who had direct knowledge of the shooting but were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Authorities say the suspect fatally shot himself inside the station. His motive wasn’t immediately clear.

19-Year Old Kills, Dumps 5-Year-Old Cousin, Reports Him Kidnapped

Tiffany VanAlstyne’s bogus 911 call on Thursday afternoon set off a search for Kenneth White that lasted into the night, authorities said. A search dog picked up a scent at about 9 p.m., and Kenneth’s body was found in a culvert, covered with snow VanAlstyne used in a bid to hide the crime, Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple said.

VanAlstyne’s parents have been the legal guardians of Kenneth, his twin sister Cheyenne, and 4-year-old sister Christine since September, and the children had lived in the home for more than a year. Apple said he did not believe the other children were in the room where White was attacked.

VanAlstyne strangled the boy and tossed his body “like a piece of trash” over a guard rail along a rural two-lane road about 40 yards from the trailer home in the town of Berne sometime before making the 911 call just after 1 p.m. Thursday, Apple said. The child had also suffered a blow to the head.

The 911 call touched off a search that included an Amber Alert describing the kidnappers as two men, clad all in black and driving a black pickup truck.

But Apple said the interrogation of VanAlstyne and others began to yield contradictions that threw the abduction story into doubt.

“Things did not start to add up,” he said, and investigators got a warrant to return to the home, about 23 miles southeast of Albany.

The children’s mother lives in Amsterdam, west of Albany, and the father in Massachusetts. Authorities would not say why the children had been place in the care of their aunt, Brenda VanAlstyne.

UPDATE: 6 Dead, 3 Wounded, Gunman AT LARGE in Pennsburg Area Found Dead

Bradley William Stone, a former Marine reservist, had been on the run since Monday’s slayings shook small communities north of Philadelphia.

His body was found in a wooded area about 1/2 mile from his home in Pennsburg, said Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman. It was not immediately clear how long the remains had been there.

Although a final report from the coroner is pending, Stone appears to have died from self-inflicted cutting wounds, in the center of his body, according to Ferman.

Early Monday morning, a hangup call to 911 first tipped off police to the bloodshed, directing them to Lansdale, 28 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

When police arrived, they found two slain women: Stone’s former mother-in-law and former grandmother-in-law, Ferman said.

A short time later, a neighbor of Stone’s ex-wife called 911, the prosecutor explained. Police went to an apartment in Lower Salford and found 33-year-old Nicole Stone dead.

“I heard three or four gunshots and I heard the kids yelling, saying, ‘Mommy, no. No, mommy, no.’ And he just said, ‘Let’s go. We gotta go,'” a neighbor who did not want to be identified told CNN affiliate WFMZ. “I heard him say, ‘Let’s go. We gotta get in the car.'”

“They didn’t have any coats on or anything,” the neighbor said. “They just had their pajamas on, and he just said, ‘We gotta go.’ He was like, ‘She’s hurt. She’s hurt pretty bad. We have to leave.’ And just got in the car and sped off.”

But Stone didn’t harm his two daughters, who were living with his former wife. At about 5:30 a.m., he brought them to a neighbor’s residence in Pennsburg, according to Ferman.

The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office said police are looking for 35-year-old Bradley William Stone, of Pennsburg, in the killings. Three others were seriously wounded, officials said.

All of the victims have a “familial relationship” to Stone, prosecutors said. The victims were not identified further.

The hunt for Stone has moved to Pennsburg after a siege in Souderton ended without taking a suspect into custody.

Montgomery County court records also show Stone had been entangled in protracted divorce proceedings with his wife, Nicole A. Stone, since early 2009. The divorce was finalized in December 2012. Less than two weeks ago, he filed an emergency motion for custody.

Cop Gone Bad: Just-Resigned Cop Kills Ex-Girlfriend, Wounds Her Teen Daughter

Authorities identified 32-year-old Stephen Rozniakowski, an officer with the Colwyn Borough Police Department, as the gunman in the deadly shooting that occurred around 9:30 p.m. Monday in a home on the 600 block of Glenfield Avenue in Glenolden.

Neighbors identified the woman killed as Valerie Morrow. The second shooting victim, identified by neighbors as Morrow’s teenage daughter, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators said Rozniakowski dated Morrow years ago, but the woman only recently filed a protection from abuse order against him.

Initial reports indicate another police officer, who was off-duty at the time, was in the home when the suspect started firing. The off-duty cop shot Rozniakowski, who was taken to Crozer-Chester Medical Center, according to officials. His condition is unknown.

Before the fatal shooting, Rozniakowski called the Colwyn Borough Police Department to announce his resignation, investigators said.

NBC10 Investigator Harry Hairston put a spotlight on Rozniakowski earlier this year when the officer was placed on “administrative leave” after his former fiancee filed a protection from abuse order against him.

Plymouth Township Police arrested Rozniakowski and charged him with 25 counts of stalking and 50 counts of harassment for allegedly contacting his former fiancee by phone and text repeatedly.

Yeah, Who the Fuck Are These Asshats?

“We need help,” [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration special agent Gregg Houghaboom] said, in tracking down who shot these protected mammals. “We have zero leads…zero responses from the public. We’re hoping someone will have heard something about these cases or saw something on Facebook.”

The pregnant bottlenose dolphin was found dead on Miramar Beach in Choctawhatchee Bay, near Destin around Nov. 21.

A necropsy, or non-human autopsy, revealed the dolphin died of a gunshot wound to her upper right side, likely with a small caliber firearm. She was within weeks of giving birth. The bullet was discovered lodged in the dolphin’s lung. It’s possible the dolphin may have been shot one to two days before it was found dead, NOAA officials said.

A second dolphin was found on Sunday on Orange Beach with a hunting arrow in its side.

It’s the same type of arrow used in deer hunting, Haughaboom said.

Based on preliminary results of a necropsy, it appears the dolphin lived with the arrow in its side for at least five days before eventually dying from a secondary infection caused by the wound.

Whale Dolphin Conservation Society, a worldwide charity whose mission is conservation of whales and dolphins, is offering a $2,500 reward in the pregnant dolphin’s death.

On its online news feed at us.whales.org, it stated it began the reward program last year in response to a large number of “illegal and cruel” acts of humans killing dolphins.

One of the deaths that spurred the society to take action was the dolphin found dead in Perdido Bay in June 2012 with a screwdriver lodged in its head.

Late Tuesday, the Humane Society of the United States and The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust offered up a $5,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the dolphin killed with an arrow.

According to the Humane Society, this is at least the 13th dolphin shot since 2010.

“You see that, that’s death”: Man Kills Mother with Gun, Knife, Bow and Arrow

When the deputy arrived, the neighbors said some people had argued next door, where the deputy found Gloria Watkins dead and Watkins wielding a large knife, according to the arrest report. Watkins put down the knife but officers had to use a stun gun after he resisted handcuffing, the report said.

Watkins pointed to his mother and said, “You see that, that’s death,” the arrest report stated. Watkins said he killed his mother because she was going to kill him first, that he shot her in the head three times, stabbed her with a knife and shot her with a bow and arrow, the report said.

Watkins also said he killed his mother because she stole his diamonds and gave his father cancer, according to the report.

Man in Werewolf Mask Shoots Worker in Check-Cashing Business, Still At-Large

And no clues why.

Police are searching for the masked assailant, who shot the worker in the head during the attack in Chino on Friday.

The victim — a 58-year-old man — was a construction worker at the business and is expected to survive, police said.

His co-worker, Armand Soliano, said they thought it was a prank when the assailant walked in. He opened fire without speaking to anyone.

Police are searching for a man who wore a werewolf mask and shot a worker at a check-cashing business, authorities said.
“He didn’t say a word,” Soliano told CNN affiliate KABC. “He shot him in the head for no reason.”

At the time of the incident, the business was closed for renovations, but it had its back doors open.

UPDATE: Man Shoots Woman, Kills Self at Chicago Nordstrom’s

Now it’s murder-suicide.

Nordstrom shooting victim dies day after her birthday. Chicago Tribune, 11/30/2014.

[Nadia] Ezaldein’s family said she and her relatives had been tormented by the gunman, the victim’s ex-boyfriend, who sought her out Friday night before shooting her in the head and neck area about 8:30 p.m.

Ezaldein [22] began dating [Marcus] Dee [31] in August 2012 after meeting him through her older sister’s roommate, they said. Dee physically abused and beat the woman throughout the relationship, and in December 2013, threatened her by inserting a handgun into her mouth, the victim’s family said. The incident resulted in a hospital visit and the victim ending the relationship.

In the year since, Dee had harassed both the woman and her family members by making threatening calls to her father and siblings, family members said. The victim changed her number three times as a result, they said.

Ezaldein also tried to request an order of protection but backed out of the request when Dee threatened to kill himself if she went through with it, family members said. Relatives said the woman was also hesitant to report abuse or harassment because Dee’s parents were police officers.

“She thought his parents could cover it up,” a sister said.

Law enforcement sources said Dee’s parents are both Chicago police officers.

Earlier post:

The 31-year-old man was targeting his “girlfriend or ex-girlfriend,” who was a seasonal employee at the department store, said John Escalante, chief of detectives for the Chicago Police Department.

“She was working up on the second floor when he approached her, fired one shot, which struck her,” Escalante said on the scene. “He then turned the gun to himself and shot and killed himself.”

According to a police report, the shooter, identified as Marcus Dee, approached the woman at the store and they spoke with each other. He took out a gun, and as the woman walked away from him, he shot her in the head/neck area before shooting himself in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 10:23 p.m., the report said.
