Teens arrested in fatal shooting of girl, 9, sitting inside car in Cleveland

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 15:34

CLEVELAND (AP) — Authorities in Cleveland say two 17-year-old boys and a 19-year-old man have been arrested in the death of a 9-year-old girl struck by an errant gunshot during an exchange of fire nearby.

Cleveland police said Friday an arrest warrant has also been issued for a 16-year-old in Wednesday's fatal shooting of Saniyah Nicholson. She was sitting in the back seat of a car with an adult sister when two teens in a car exchanged gunfire with two teens on foot. The 20-year-old sister wasn't injured.

Court records show that 19-year-old Devontae Nettles has been charged with murder in the girl's death. Police say Nettles and one of the 17-year-olds were in the car. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

Police say the shootout doesn't appear to be gang-related.

Statewide outbreak of hepatitis A declared for Ohio

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 15:23

The Ohio Department of Health has declared an outbreak of hepatitis A in the state.

The department said there has been 79 cases of hepatitis A in Ohio so far in 2018.

This is nearly double the number of cases reported during all of 2017.

Hepatitis A is a vaccine-preventable liver disease. It is typically spread when a person ingests food or drinks that may have been contaminated with the stool of an infected person. Hepatitis A can also spread from close personal contact with an infected person, such as through sex.

Doctors say the best way to prevent hepatitis A is through vaccinations. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a child as young as 1-year-old receive the vaccine.

Symptoms of Hepatitis A include fatigue, low appetite, stomach pain, nausea, clay-colored stool and jaundice. Patients with hepatitis A can experience a mild illness that lasts only a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months.

Some of Ohio's hepatitis A cases are linked to outbreaks in neighboring states.

Indiana has seen 138 cases, Kentucky has 761 cases, Michigan has 843 cases, and West Virginia has 248 cases.

Concerns about scrappers raised days before house explosion

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 14:44

COLUMBUS, Ohio - 10 Investigates has been digging into the history of the property where a home exploded Friday morning in east Columbus, looking for clues as to what happened.

One week ago, buildings reduced to debris and rubble Friday were someone's home.

Those residents had been relocated as of last week to make way for remodeling.

Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority says no one was supposed to be in these units.

"When we vacate the units we secure the front and back doors and then we look at, when it comes to the utilities, because we're doing renovation, we would still make those available for usage," said Cheryl Thomas with CMHA.

She says that means the gas would be left on.

But having those units vacant appears to have made them a target of scrappers.

"We were in correspondence with the fire department in regards to some issues of individuals trying to get into the units and compromising some of the utilities in the units," she said.

That was earlier this week.

On Friday, CMHA was not taking any chances.

It was working with Columbia Gas to turn off the gas to any other vacant units in this area, and had hired private, round the clock security.

"Our primary concern right now, and the only thing we're concerned about right now, is the security of the area and for the residents involved around it," Thomas said.

Columbia Gas said it completed their testing at the scene on Friday and the lines serving the affected units are safe.

The utility is confident its facilities and lines were not the source of this explosion.

They remind everyone -- if you smell natural gas, it is an emergency.

People should leave the area and call 911 and Columbia Gas immediately.

10TV also checked with Columbus Code Enforcement and Building and Zoning.

They say they have complaints or concerns about these buildings for at least the last three years.

Columbus Police say the only reports or complaints at the properties in question were in March and May.

One involved loud music, the other a suspicious person.

Police: Man kills lawyer, self, hours after divorce is final

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 14:41

CARTERSVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia man killed his ex-wife's attorney in his law office just hours after the couple's divorce was final and then killed himself, authorities said.

Cartersville Police Lt. M.E. Bettikofer tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that 33-year-old Walter Samuel Radford's divorce was finalized at 12:04 p.m. Wednesday and Radford fatally shot his ex-wife's attorney about two hours later. Police say 41-year-old lawyer Antonio Benjamin Mari's body was found in his Cartersville law office. He had been shot multiple times.

Bettikofer says Radford called ex-wife Cindy Radford to tell her he had shot Mari. He says Radford then broke into her home and shot himself. His body was found about 2:40 p.m.

Radford had failed to show up for the final divorce hearing.

While at the courthouse Wednesday morning, Mari told colleagues he had concerns about Radford, attorney Wade Everett said.

Though he didn't know specifics, Everett said Mari had a "gut feeling" that Radford could harm him. On Thursday, Everett said he and his colleagues discussed security at their office.

"There's only so much security you can really do," he said. "You can carry a gun. But unless you've got it in your hand and you're waiting on someone, it's not going to do you any good."

Mari's death shocked the Cartersville community, where he had worked nearly 18 years as a high school history teacher and later an attorney. After teaching for 10 years at Cass High School, Mari graduated from law school and passed the Georgia bar exam in 2009.

Though he represented clients in bankruptcy and domestic cases, Mari wasn't the typical tough-faced litigator, according to fellow Cartersville attorney Lester Tate.

"He's just one of the nicest, most easy-going people you could imagine," Tate said.

Mari is survived by his wife.

Late Wednesday, Cass High School posted a tribute to him on Facebook. And Thursday, the Bartow County School System honored Mari in a post.

"Inspirational, favorite teacher, Georgia Bulldog fan; that's how Antonio Mari's former students at Cass High School describe him," the school system posted. "We share the community's grief and extend our deepest sympathies to the Mari Family, as well as the BCSS Family."

Cartersville is about 43 miles northwest of Atlanta.

"He has a gun": Mom's 911 call in standoff that left 4 kids dead

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 14:34

ORLANDO, Fla. - The mother of four children killed by her boyfriend called 911 from a 7-Eleven after fleeing her Orlando apartment, according to the June 10 call released Thursday by Orlando police, reports CBS affiliate WKMG. Ciara Lopez called Orlando police dispatch around 11:43 p.m. and said that her boyfriend, Gary Lindsey Jr., hurt her and took her phone.

"He hurt me and he has my phone and he has a gun, and there's four children in the house," Lopez said, her voice shaking.

The dispatcher asked Lopez if Lindsey had ever pulled the gun on her. "Not today," she replied.

Lopez said her four children were locked in their rooms at the home at Westbrook Apartments complex and she drove to the nearby 7-Eleven to get help.

"I have to go back to the apartment," she told dispatch several times.

WKMG reports that four minutes after that 911 call, Orlando police met Lopez at the complex's leasing office and attempted to get the children out. During an exchange of gunfire with Lindsey, OPD Officer Kevin Valencia was shot in the head and critically injured, police said.

Almost 24 hours later, Irayan Pluth, 12; Lillia Pluth, 10; Aidan Lindsey, 6; and Dove Lindsey, 1, were found shot to death in their beds, police said.

Valencia remains in critical condition.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina said Lindsey shot and killed the children, two of whom were his own, before taking his own life.

"I don't want to leave them alone there for too long, because he might do something," Lopez told dispatch.

Lopez's attorney released a statement Thursday afternoon about the 911 calls.

"It is clearly evident that in the recently released 911 call placed by Ciara Lopez ... at 11:43 p.m. that she had been physically assaulted and was in a state of terror, in fear for her children's lives at this point," the statement read.

Lopez told a 911 operator that she was scratched up but didn't need medical attention.

WKMG reports that at 4:35 a.m., Lindsey's sister from Jacksonville called Orlando police unsure if her brother was the barricaded suspect she saw on the news, but said she put two and two together after she received a call from Lindsey's friend at 2:30 a.m. who said Lindsey was threatening to kill himself.

Lindsey's sister told dispatch, still unsure if her brother was the suspect, that she wanted to help if she could.

"I didn't know exactly where it was. No one really did. I'm just calling because I saw this on the news and I was wondering if there was anything my mother and I could help," she said.

WKMG reports that the month before the shooting, Lindsey's sister attended a hearing after Lindsey reportedly violated his probation, and made a $1,000 restitution payment on his behalf which a judge said "saved him" from going to prison.

According to the station, Lindsey had a long history of arrests, including for arson and domestic violence. He once allegedly pulled a knife on his girlfriend while she held their 7-month-old child in her arms.

Orlando police also released 911 calls made by several concerned Westbrook residents.

The funeral for the four children will be held Saturday at St. James Catholic Cathedral Church, in downtown Orlando.

Crude oil leaks into floodwaters after train derails in Iowa

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 14:12

DOON, Iowa — A freight train derailed in northwest Iowa on Friday, leaking crude oil from at least one of 31 tankers into flooded fields flanking the tracks and raising concerns about the possible contamination of residential water supplies, officials said.

BNSF railroad spokesman Andy Williams said no one was injured when the cars derailed around 4:30 a.m. Friday just south of Doon in Lyon County.

Officials at the scene aren't sure whether floodwater from the swollen Little Rock River caused the cars to leave the tracks. The river rose rapidly Wednesday after 5 to 7 inches of rain fell Wednesday and a further downpour on Thursday.

A broadening sheen of oil spread near several of the tankers, which had piled up across the track and earthen berm, some submerged in the water.

News of the spill was enough to prompt officials in Rock Valley, a small city about 5 miles southwest of the derailment, to shut off all the city's drinking water wells. The water towers also will be drained as a precaution, said Rock Valley public information officer Travis Olson. In the meantime, the city is getting its water from the nearby Rock Valley Rural Water system, which Olson said is not in danger of being contaminated by the spill.

The city, with a population of nearly 3,400, will stay on the rural water system until testing by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources confirms the safety of the city's drinking water, Olson said.

"I don't know how long that will be," he said. "It sounds like the cleanup is going to take a while."

Williams said he was unsure how much oil leaked and how many of the cars were leaking. Lyon County Sheriff Stewart Vander Stoep said the oil was being carried downstream into the Rock River a few hundred yards west of the derailment.

No information was immediately available on how much oil each of the tankers was carrying. Cleanup crews were dispatched to the site.

Vander Stoep said four homes near the site have been evacuated.

The Rock River has already carried some oil to Rock Valley, said Ken Hessenius with the Iowa Natural Resources Department. State crews are trying to determine how fast the oil was travelling south. The Rock River joins the Big Sioux River before merging into the Missouri River at Sioux City.

The task difficulty is compounded by the spreading floodwater, he said.

"The river, instead of being 100 yards wide, is now maybe a half-mile wide" in spots, Hessenius said.

"Our first major concerns are public water supplies," he said, adding that several towns that draw water from shallow wells near the Rock River have been alerted about possible contamination.

Doon is about 40 miles southeast of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where several rain-swollen rivers overflowed Thursday. The National Weather Service has forecast flooding in the area into the weekend.

Drug spoon sculpture placed outside drugmaker headquarters

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 13:59

STAMFORD, Conn. — An 800-pound, nearly 11-foot-long steel sculpture of a bent and burned drug spoon was placed Friday in front of the Connecticut headquarters of drugmaker Purdue Pharma as part of an art protest against the opioid crisis.

Artist Domenic Esposito and art gallery owner Fernando Alvarez dropped the sculpture at the company's Stamford headquarters. Police arrested Alvarez on a minor charge of obstructing free passage. A city worker removed the spoon with a payloader and it was hauled to a police evidence holding area.

Several state and local governments are suing Purdue Pharma for allegedly using deceptive marketing to boost sales of its opioid painkiller OxyContin, deceiving patients and doctors about the risks of opioids. The company has been blamed for helping fuel addiction and opioid overdose deaths.

Purdue Pharma denies the allegations in the lawsuits.

"We share the protesters' concern about the opioid crisis, and respect their right to peacefully express themselves," the company said in a statement Friday in response to the sculpture. "Purdue is committed to working collaboratively with those affected by this public health crisis on meaningful solutions to help stem the tide of opioid-related overdose deaths."

Opioid overdose deaths rose to about 46,000 in the U.S. for the 12-month period that ended in October 2017, up about 15 percent from October 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Esposito, of Westwood, Massachusetts, and his family have struggled with his brother's 14-year opioid addiction. He said his brother, Danny, who has been clean for the past four months, has nearly died and has been in and out of jail.

He said the idea for the 4-foot-high sculpture, which includes a depiction of burned heroin on the spoon, came from his mother screaming several years ago that she found another bent spoon used by his brother. Spoons are used to "cook" the drugs into liquid form before putting them into syringes.

"The spoon has always been an albatross for my family," Esposito said. "It's kind of an emotional symbol, a dark symbol for me.

"This is just a movement for accountability," he said. "Percocet and OxyContin are still all over the streets. Nothing's changed. People are still dying. ... It's also a calling for the federal government to step in and do something."

The placement of the giant spoon at Purdue Pharma kicked off an exhibit on the opioid crisis that opened Friday at Alvarez's gallery in Stamford.

9,000 barrels of aging bourbon crash to ground after warehouse collapses

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 13:46

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Thousands of bourbon barrels were piled in a massive heap Friday after a large section of a whiskey storage warehouse collapsed at a distillery in the heart of Kentucky bourbon country.

About 9,000 barrels filled with aging bourbon were affected by the warehouse collapse at the Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown, said Nelson County Emergency Management spokesman Milt Spalding. No injuries were reported following the late-morning collapse, he said.

Barton bourbon is owned by Sazerac, a New Orleans-based spirits company. Spokeswoman Amy Preske said the company was assessing the damage and declined further comment.

The distillery is near a waterway, and officials were checking on whether any whiskey had spilled into it. The structure has a 12-foot (3.6-meter) basement that would help contain spills, said Joe Prewitt, the local emergency management director.

The warehouse stored about 20,000 barrels, and about half the structure with the rest of the barrels was still standing, Spalding said.

Bardstown fire chief Billy Mattingly said crews had been working on the warehouse earlier in the week.

No one was in the building when it collapsed, Spalding said.

The Barton distillery, established in 1879, includes 29 storage warehouses and 22 other buildings, according to its website.

Bourbon ages for years in charred new oak barrels, where it acquires its color and flavor.

Bardstown is about 40 miles (64 kilometers) south of Louisville.

Cops: Girl believed abducted by gunman who shot grandfather

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 11:37

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Authorities in Kansas City are searching for a girl they believe was abducted by a gunman who shot her grandfather, reports CBS affiliate KCTV. An Amber Alert has been issued in Kansas and Missouri for 15-year-old Brajean Sledge. Police responded to the report of a shooting Thursday at a Kansas City home, where they found Sledge's 60-year-old grandfather shot and wounded.

He was taken to an area hospital and is in serious but stable condition, the station reports.

Police say they believe the suspect, between 18 and 20 years old, may be with Sledge. He is considered armed and dangerous and Sledge is believed to be in danger, Kansas City police officer Jake Becchina told the station.

The two were last seen traveling northbound in a 2017 Kia Forte. Police say they located the vehicle abandoned Thursday in south Kansas City. Investigators were canvassing the area and processing the car for evidence.

Sledge goes by several different names, including Brajean Sweeten, Bre-Shawn, Brayshawn, and Rayshawn, the station reports. She was last seen wearing a white V-neck T-shirt and black pants, and her hair is black with a blond weave, police say. Anyone who sees her is asked to call 911.

Central Ohio parents learn about gaming disorders in children

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 11:16

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Parents in central Ohio are learning what the new mental health classification of gaming disorders could mean.

The World Health Organization announced that compulsively playing video games now qualifies as a new mental health condition. It is a move that some critics warn may risk stigmatizing young players.

Local colleges point to thousands of studies where universities nationwide completed a part of the research leading up to the designation.

“As with any addiction, it doesn't just harm the individual,” said Iowa State Professor Douglas Gentile.

Gentile has completed numerous studies on children and gaming. He called the action of the World Health Organization a victory for science. Now, a person can be diagnosed as addicted to gaming. Gentile said the move aligns with his ongoing studies that began in the 1990’s.

"Even back then, parents were saying their kids were addicted to games and I thought that can't be right. I started studying back then. I set out to disprove it, but the more I tried to disprove it, the more I couldn't."

Gentile said it could mean better help and therapy for children who have crossed the line. He explained the new classification could open the door for insurance companies to cover gaming addiction treatment.

“Once we recognize some kids might have a real problem with the way they're gaming, then we might recognize the symptoms earlier and get them help sooner before it becomes such a big problem,” Gentile said.

Warning signs he said parents can watch for include a shift in your child’s performance at school, depression, social phobias or ADHD. He said he found them to often be comorbid.

Columbus bank robbery suspect gives ID, easily tracked by police

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 10:53

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Police say a quick-thinking bank teller in Ohio convinced a suspected robber to hand over his own license.

Authorities say the man walked into a Huntington Bank in Columbus on June 4 and gave the teller a note saying he was armed and demanding money.

The teller gave the man a stack of cash, but then he demanded more money from the electronic cash recycle machine in the bank's lobby.

Police say the teller told the man the machine needed a driver's license to dispense cash, so the man handed his own license over.

The license led police to the 51-year-old man who was arrested June 15 and charged with aggravated robbery and threatening with a deadly weapon.

Crying girl in iconic image was never separated from mother, ICE says

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 10:07

The picture of a Honduran girl crying as she and her mother are detained in Texas has grabbed worldwide attention and come to symbolize the intense debate about separating children from their parents. Time magazine put the young girl on this week's cover, but the Border Patrol agent involved in the dramatic scene says the photo might be a little misleading. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to CBS News the mother and daughter are being housed together at a facility in Texas and her immigration proceedings are ongoing.

"We were patrolling the border. It was after 10 o'clock at night," Border Patrol agent Carlos Ruiz told CBS News' David Begnaud. He was the first to encounter Sandra Sanchez and her daughter after they allegedly crossed the Rio Grande River into Texas illegally.

"We asked her to set the kid down in front of her, not away from her, she was right in front of her...So we can properly search the mother," Ruiz said. "So the kid immediately started crying as she set her down. I personally went up to the mother and asked her 'Are you doing OK? Is the kid OK?' and she said, 'Yes. She's tired and thirsty. It's 11 o'clock at night.'"

Getty photographer John Moore joined Ruiz for a nearly nine-hour ride along on the border. He was just feet away from Sanchez and her daughter.

July 2 issue of Time (TIME)

"When I took this picture, I knew it would be important. I had no way of knowing that it would touch people quite on the level that it has," Moore said. "I asked her how long she'd been traveling, and she gave me this very weary look, and she said she'd been on the road with her daughter for a month…. Imagine doing that with children. It's almost impossible to imagine, actually."

Moore's image is now on the cover of Time magazine next to a picture of President Trump.

"They're using it to symbolize a policy and that was not the case in this picture," Ruiz said. "It took less than two minutes. As soon as the search was finished, she immediately picked the girl up, and the girl immediately stopped crying."

Moore says Ruiz and other agents acted professionally that night. But he is happy with the cover and the response to the image.

"Oftentimes, immigration is talked about in terms of statistics, and when you put a human face and humanize an issue, you make people feel. And when you make people feel, they have compassion. And if I've done just a little bit of that, then that's OK," Moore said.

Ruiz said he and his fellow agents represent more than just the Border Patrol logo.

"We are also fathers, we are also sons, we are also have families, and we do care, and we do our jobs, and we treat these people as humanely and as best as we possibly can," Ruiz said.

Supreme Court decides police generally need a warrant to track cell phones

Channel 10 news - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 09:25

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Friday that police generally need a search warrant if they want to track criminal suspects' movements by collecting information about where they've used their cellphones, bolstering privacy interests in the digital age.

The justices' 5-4 decision marks a big change in how police may obtain cellphone tower records, an important tool in criminal investigations.

Chief Justice John Roberts, joined by the court's four liberals, said cellphone location information "is detailed, encyclopedic and effortlessly compiled." Roberts wrote that "an individual maintains a legitimate expectation of privacy in the record of his physical movements" as they are captured by cellphone towers.

Roberts said the court's decision is limited to cellphone tracking information and does not affect other business records, including those held by banks.

He also wrote that police still can respond to an emergency and obtain records without a warrant.

Justices Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch each wrote dissenting opinions. Kennedy wrote that the court's "new and uncharted course will inhibit law enforcement" and "keep defendants and judges guessing for years to come."

The court ruled in the case of Timothy Carpenter, who was sentenced to 116 years in prison for his role in a string of robberies of Radio Shack and T-Mobile stores in Michigan and Ohio. Cell tower records that investigators got without a warrant bolstered the case against Carpenter.

Investigators obtained the cell tower records with a court order that requires a lower standard than the "probable cause" needed to obtain a warrant. "Probable cause" requires strong evidence that a person has committed a crime.

The judge at Carpenter's trial refused to suppress the records, finding no warrant was needed, and a federal appeals court agreed. The Trump administration said the lower court decisions should be upheld.

The American Civil Liberties Union, representing Carpenter, said a warrant would provide protection against unjustified government snooping.

The administration relied in part on a 1979 Supreme Court decision that treated phone records differently than the conversation in a phone call, for which a warrant generally is required.

"The government's position fails to contend with the seismic shifts in digital technology that made possible the tracking of not only Carpenter's location but also everyone else's, not for a short period but for years and years," Roberts wrote.

The earlier case involved a single home telephone and the court said then that people had no expectation of privacy in the records of calls made and kept by the phone company.

"The government's position fails to contend with the seismic shifts in digital technology that made possible the tracking of not only Carpenter's location but also everyone else's, not for a short period but for years and years," Roberts wrote.

The court decided the 1979 case before the digital age, and even the law on which prosecutors relied to obtain an order for Carpenter's records dates from 1986, when few people had cellphones.

The Supreme Court in recent years has acknowledged technology's effects on privacy. In 2014, the court held unanimously that police must generally get a warrant to search the cellphones of people they arrest. Other items people carry with them may be looked at without a warrant, after an arrest.
