Man arrested for threats that closed Kentucky school system

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 05:14

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky authorities say they believe they saved lives by arresting a heavily armed man who allegedly threatened multiple schools, had a "detailed plan of attack" and was stopped while pulling out of his driveway shortly before the school day ended Thursday.

The suspect, Dylan Jarrell, who lives close to Anderson County High School in Lawrenceburg, possessed a firearm, more than 200 rounds of ammunition, a bulletproof vest and a 100-round high-capacity magazine, Kentucky State Police Sgt. Josh Lawson said Friday. Jarrell, 20, later was arrested on charges that included terroristic threatening.

"There's no doubt in my mind that as a result of this investigation, we saved lives," state police Commissioner Rick Sanders said at a press conference in Frankfort. "This young man had it in his mind to go to schools and create havoc."

He added that Jarrell "was caught backing out of his driveway with the tools he needed to commit this heinous act."

"He had the tools necessary, the intent necessary. And the only thing that stood between him and evil ... is law enforcement," Sanders said.

Evidence suggested Jarrell might have been headed to a school when he was stopped, state police said.

Jarrell was stopped by authorities about 2:30 p.m. Thursday, state police said. That was shortly before students, parents and teachers would have been clustered outside at the end of the school day. Anderson County schools end classes between 2:45 p.m. and 3:05 p.m., local schools Superintendent Sheila Mitchell said.

Officials did not reveal what kind of gun he had.

Mitchell praised the work of law enforcement on Friday, saying in a phone interview: "We're very blessed. I do think their efforts did avoid a disaster."

State police, who worked with local and federal authorities, said they considered it a "credible and imminent threat" against schools in Anderson and neighboring Shelby counties.

As a precautionary measure, Anderson County public school officials canceled classes districtwide Friday.

In Shelby County, the school system suspended activities at Shelby County High School. The district was on fall break so regular classes were not in session. Both school districts later said after-school activities would go on as planned Friday.

Jarrell formerly attended Shelby County schools, and he had taken classes in Anderson County to obtain his GED diploma, officials in both districts said Friday.

Jarrell had been questioned by the FBI in May over social media threats to a school in Tennessee, Kentucky authorities said.

The investigation by Kentucky authorities began after they received a complaint that the man had sent harassing Facebook messages to a New Jersey woman. During questioning, an FBI agent asked Jarrell about a past school shooting threat in which Jarrell had been a suspect, according to his arrest citation. Jarrell admitted to making the threats and consented to a police examination of his phone, the court record said.

The review found information pertaining to "threats of bodily harm against multiple persons at a school," it said.

A search of Jarrell's home turned up evidence "corroborating the information that a threat was valid and imminent," the citation said. It did not specify which school was threatened.

The search also turned up "an Internet search history on how to successfully conduct a school shooting," Lawson said. Jarrell was the only suspect in the case, he said.

Jarrell was charged with two counts of second-degree terroristic threatening and one count of harassing communications, state police said. He was being held in the Shelby County Detention Center. Jarrell's arraignment was set for Monday in Anderson County District Court in Lawrenceburg. Court records did not list an attorney for Jarrell.

Sanders praised the teamwork of state, federal and local law enforcement but singled out the work of state police Trooper Josh Satterly, who responded to the initial report of a threat against the woman in New Jersey.

No Mega Millions winner, jackpot climbs to $1.6 billion

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 04:02

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — No one won the latest Mega Millions drawing, meaning the jackpot climbs to a staggering $1.6 billion.

Mega Millions officials say no tickets matched all six numbers to claim the estimated $1 billion grand prize in Friday night's drawing. The numbers were 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 7.

The next drawing will be Tuesday. The estimated jackpot for that drawing would tie the largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

The jackpot has been growing since July, when a group of California office workers won $543 million.

It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of winning the jackpot aren't good. The chance of matching all six numbers and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Broken stadium lights concern parents at Walnut Ridge High School

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 20:42

COLUMBUS-- Parents and fans of the Walnut Ridge football team are hoping the district fixes the broken lights surrounding the stadium and school parking lot.

According to a district spokesperson, 50 percent of the lights around the athletic field are out of order.

“I’ve been noticing that probably since last year,” Eric Crump said.

Crump is the grandfather of a Walnut Ridge football player. He says the situation has not improved and the lack of action by the district does not reflect well on the school.

“It’s not investing enough in the stadiums, our football fields period, in our facilities or our athletic facilities, especially at the older high schools.”

The Athletic Director at Walnut ridge says she brought in the construction lights to substitute the blown bulbs and the district has made attempts to fix the problem this week but were unsuccessful.

A district spokesperson said there are plans to resolve the issue but there is no set timeline.

No. 2 Buckeyes still seeking improvement on trip to Purdue

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 19:34

Jeff Brohm sees all sorts of challenges in No. 2 Ohio State.

Purdue's coach knows the Buckeyes are big and strong, capable of scoring dozens of points and of making life miserable for opponents.

Urban Meyer views his team quite differently. No, he won't quibble with the impressive wins or the undefeated record but he knows Ohio State still needs to improve.

"We can play much better," Meyer said. "As I made a comment to you many times, you enhance your strengths and work on your weaknesses. Every team has weaknesses, and there are some things we have to work on."

It's a scary thought.

The Buckeyes (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten) are No. 2 nationally in total offense, No. 6 in scoring offense, No. 25 in scoring defense, tied for No. 13 in turnover margin and share the East Division lead with No. 6 Michigan. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. leads the nation with 28 touchdown passes.

And yet, around Columbus, Ohio, all the talk seems to be focused on a ground game that has not yet met the traditional standard. Brohm knows just how flawed such an assessment truly is.

"The thing that really impressed me the most about them is they have had a couple games that have been a little bit close and these guys just know how to win," Brohm said. "They know how to find a way to win. They have a lot of history and tradition and it's going to be a very tough matchup."

The timing couldn't be better for the Boilermakers (3-3, 2-1).

They've been building momentum since starting 0-3 and now find themselves back in the West Division title chase. Quarterback David Blough has played the finest football of his career since replacing the injured Elijah Sindelar, and the defense has started coming around, too.

It's enough to gin up excitement in the fan base, prompt network executives to put Purdue in a rare nationally televised night-time slot and, yes, draw the attention of a two-time national champion coach.

"It's a big road game, a team that is very good on film, obviously, and scoring a lot of points," Meyer said. "We've got to get some guys healthy and get ready to go."

WORK IN PROGRESS

Ohio State's defense is banged up and surrendering some big plays, suggesting there is a weak link. Meyer is not overreacting to the chatter about any problems.

"We held (Minnesota) without scoring for the better part of three quarters, and had three turnovers and three sacks," he said. "I see what you see, as well. We expect them to be snuffed out. But this will be a big challenge this week. That's what we do all day (during the week) is just constant evaluation."

Defensive end Jonathan Cooper and starting linebacker Malik Harrison are both expected to return this weekend after going into the concussion protocol following the Indiana game earlier this month. Starting defensive tackle Robert Landers is probable with an undisclosed injury and cornerback Damon Arnette is listed as questionable after getting hurt against Penn State.

WINNING AGAIN

The Boilermakers have won three straight for the second straight year under Brohm, marking the first time Purdue has achieved that feat since the late Joe Tiller won eight in a row — the last three of the 2006 season and the first five in 2007. Purdue's streak includes its only upset of a ranked opponent in its last 20 games and back-to-back road wins, at Nebraska and Illinois. The Buckeyes, meanwhile, will be the highest ranked foe to visit Ross-Ade Stadium since then No. 2 Penn State won 31-25 against the Drew Brees-led Boilermakers on Oct. 23, 1999.

LIFE WITHOUT BOSA

The glimmer of hope that Nick Bosa would return from injury this season was snuffed out when the All-American defensive end announced this week he's leaving school to prepare for the NFL draft. Bosa hasn't played in more than a month, since tearing a lower abdominal muscle.

"We've been without him for so long, we've adapted to it, we're used to it, we've adjusted," defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones said. "We wish he were here just to have him around to hang out, but that's how it goes. He decided to leave. That's real life."

Zanesville woman charged with murder for leaving infant in hot car

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 18:28

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A Zanesville woman whose 1-month-old daughter died of asphyxiation last year has been charged with murder in the death of her 1-month-old son who authorities say was left in a car on a 90-degree day.

The Zanesville Times Recorder reports 27-year-old Samantha Donohoe also faces felonious assault, involuntary manslaughter and child endangering charges in Muskingum County. She was arrested Monday.

Authorities say county sheriff's deputies were called to an apartment building Sept. 4 and found the infant unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

It's unclear how long the boy had been left in the car.

Authorities say Donohoe's daughter died after Donohoe fell asleep on a couch with the infant. The death was considered an accident.

A message seeking comment was left Friday with Donohoe's attorney.

Saudi Arabia confirms Jamal Khashoggi was killed at embassy

Channel 10 news - Fri, 10/19/2018 - 16:39

For the first time, Saudi Arabian state television said Friday that journalist Jamal Khashoggi is dead. Saudi state television reported that an investigation found that a fight broke out at the embassy between Khashoggi and people who met him at the consulate.

The Saudi public prosecutor said 18 people have been arrested. The investigation is ongoing.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman has dismissed his closest adviser Saud al-Qahtani, two sources told CBS News' Kylie Atwood. "You don't get much closer" to bin Salman, one source told Atwood.

Intelligence chief Ahmed al-Assiri is also out, sources said. CBS News reported earlier Friday that Saudi officials were considering blaming al-Assiri

Khashoggi, who was U.S.-based and wrote for The Washington Post, disappeared on Oct. 2 after going into the Saudi embassy in Istanbul. Turkish officials have said, anonymously, that Khashoggi was murdered in the consulate, by a 15-man team.

Khashoggi's last column was published Wednesday by The Washington Post.
