Louisiana rapper Hurricane Chris, real name Christoper Dooley Jr., was charged with second-degree murder in connection with a shooting early Friday, according to KTVE.

Dooley, 31, initially told police he shot an armed man in self-defense at a gas station at 1 a.m., but police later determined he made up the story.

The Shreveport Police Violent Crimes Unit arrested Dooley on Friday morning.

The victim had been shot multiple times and died later at a local hospital. Dooley claimed he shot the man in self-defense after an alleged struggle over a vehicle that he claimed was his.

Officers later viewed surveillance video that captured the shooting.

The footage led detectives to believe Dooley was not in fear for his life when he opened fire.

Dooley was 18 when his first single "A Bay Bay" dropped in 2007. It was also his only hit. The song peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 3 on the rap chart.

2 years after "That '70s Show" star Danny Masterson was ousted from Netflix's "The Ranch" amid sexual assault allegations, the actor was finally arrested on rape charges.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office charged Masterson with rape in three separate cases on Wednesday, after four women came forward to accuse him of rape in March 2017.

Masterson, a 44-year-old Scientologist, is accused of raping a 23-year-old woman in 2001, and a 28-year-old woman in 2003. Another 23-year-old woman alleged Masterson raped her after he invited her to his Hollywood Hills home in 2003, according to the Los Angeles prosecutor's office.

Actress Leah Remini was not surprised at the news of his arrest. The former Scientologist said she was relieved that Masterson was finally charged.

"Finally, victims are being heard when it comes to Scientology!" Remini tweeted shortly on Wednesday. "Praise the lord! This is just the beginning Scientology, your days of getting away with it is coming to an end!"

Masterson, who is married, faces a maximum sentence of 45 years to life in prison if convicted on all charges.

By now you've seen the horrifying viral video that shows a young Black male bashing a Black woman in her face with a skateboard, knocking her out.

After laying her out, the guy strutted away, while his boys encouraged him.

Don't expect the news media to cover this story. It's just a Black man treating a Black woman like her life doesn't matter.

The video is dark and blurry. But the Internet believe they found the guy. I won't name him. According to web sleuths, the guy is an up-and-coming rapper and a youth counselor (!).

IG bloggers say he savagely hit the woman with his skateboard because she rejected his advances.

I had a long speech written about the lack of protests decrying violence against Black women. But I deleted it.

Not one Black blog or media outlet wrote a post about this video. Not one. And that's a shame.

The reward for female arsonists who torched a Wendy's restaurant in Atlanta has been increased to $20,000.

The restaurant was destroyed, leaving about a dozen Wendy's employees jobless.

Atlanta fire officials released images from a surveillance video that shows a woman, who appears to be Caucasian, wearing a black miniskirt with a purple cardigan wrapped around her waist.

The same woman was caught on cellphone video pouring an accelerant inside the Wendy's restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was gunned down by a former Atlanta police officer on June 12.

Brooks, 27, died from 2 gunshot wounds to the back, according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office.

Police are also searching for another Caucasian woman who was pictured holding a can of accelerant outside the Wendy's restaurant as it was fully engulfed in flames.

Caucasian firebugs have caused millions of dollars worth of damage to property during protests -- while blaming the property damage on Black Lives Matter protesters.

A 911 dispatcher was so concerned after watching a live feed of George Floyd's arrest on May 25, that she called a sergeant to express her concerns.

The phone call came to light in a newly released transcript from the Minneapolis Police Department, according to Fox5DC.

In the phone call between the dispatcher and a police sergeant, the woman said she watched the arrest on live camera feed outside Cup Foods in south Minneapolis.

"You can call me a snitch if you want to," she said, before adding she saw three officers physically restrain Floyd who was already handcuffed on the ground.

"All of them sat on this man. I don't know if they needed to or not. They haven't said anything to me yet," the dispatcher added.

The sergeant said he would look into the problem, before the call with the dispatcher ended.

The transcript also included two calls from pedestrians who witnessed the murder. Both calls were placed at 8:32 p.m.

In the first call, the bystander said he watched as an officer, "just pretty much killed this guy that wasn't resisting arrest. He had his knee on the dude's neck the whole time."

The caller asked to speak with a supervisor and was in the middle of being connected when the call abruptly ended.

A second call placed about 30 seconds later was also disconnected before the caller could speak with a supervisor about the incident.

Rayshard Brooks, the 27-year-old Black man who was shot by an Atlanta police officer, died from 2 gunshot wounds to the back, according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office.

Brooks was gunned down in a Wendy's parking lot while fleeing from police late Friday night.

The incident began when police responded to a report that a man was asleep in a car in the Wendy's drive-thru lane. His car was blocking other cars in the drive-thru lane.

Police body cam video shows Brooks having a polite conversation with one of the officers. After failing a field sobriety test, he asked if he could park his car and walk to his sister's house a short distance away, but his request was denied.

Police attempted to cuff Brooks but he resisted and a struggle ensued between the three men.

Brooks was able to wrest a taser away from one of the cops and flee on foot. Surveillance video shows Brooks turning and pointing the taser at a pursuing officer who then fired three shots, killing Brooks.

The officer who fired his weapon was fired on Saturday after officials viewed the boy cam footage and determined the use of deadly force was not justifiable.

His partner was assigned to desk duty while the investigation into the officer-involved shooting continues.

Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields resigned and her resignation was accepted by Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Saturday.

Protesters demonstrated peacefully outside the Wendy's restaurant on Saturday. But paid agitators in the crowd burned the restaurant to the ground overnight Sunday.

The Atlanta Police Dept. is offering a $10,000 reward for the capture of a Caucasian woman who allegedly set the blaze that torched the restaurant.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard released a statement on Sunday:

"Today, members of my staff had the unfortunate duty of witnessing the autopsy of Mr. Brooks as part of our continued investigation.

Because this is a homicide investigation, there are several technical requirements that must be met before we are able to reach a decision. That includes the confirmation of the ballistics involved and obtaining a preliminary report from the Medical Examiner,” according to the DA’s statement."

So far, no arrests have been made in the murder of Mr. Brooks.
 

 

 

 

Tamla Horsford

New developments in the Tamla Horsford cold case prompted the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office to ask the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to reopen the case.

New evidence suggests Horsford fought for her life before she was thrown off a balcony following an "adult slumber party" in Forsyth County, GA.

Tamla Horsford

Horsford, a 40-year-old mother-of-5, was found dead in the backyard of a home in North Forsyth County on Nov. 4, 2018.

Her neck was broken and her heart was lacerated, causing her to bleed out in the backyard.

The medical examiner and Georgia Bureau of Investigation ruled the cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma from "an accidental fall" from a 2nd floor residential deck, and the case was closed in 2019.

In a letter to Horsford's widow, Leander, attorney Ralph E. Fernandez said he recently "finished the exhaustive review of the records related to the investigation."

"The review reflects that a homicide is a strong possibility." He went on to say "Witness statements are in conflict" and "A potential subject handled the body as well as the evidence prior to the law enforcement arrival."

He added: "A remarkable fact is that there were no photographs taken during the autopsy of Tamla's body This had been done at someone's directive because such a practice is unheard of."

In a letter to GBI Director Vic Reynolds, Forsyth County Sheriff Ron Freeman asked the GBI to "assume and open" an investigation into the "tragic death of Tamla Horsford."

The autopsy report and other documents pertaining to Horsford's death were released to the public by the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office in 2019 after the case was closed.

The detailed autopsy report, published by Forsythnews.com, describe a fractured cervical vertebra in her neck, bleeding on the brain, and multiple lacerations and abrasions to her face, head, neck, torso and extremities. Her right wrist was dislocated and a 1-inch laceration was observed on her wrist.

The report also described a "3/4 inch linear laceration to the right ventricle" of her heart, meaning a tear in the wall of her heart. That injury alone would have been fatal.

The GBI toxicology report shows Horsford had a blood alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit and she had THC (marijuana) and Xanax in her system. But her family said she did not smoke marijuana nor was she prescribed Xanax by a doctor.

Chad Daybell, the new husband of Lori Vallow, was arrested after human remains were unearthed at his Idaho property.

Vallow is the mother of 2 children, Joshua Vallow, 7, and his sister, Tylee Ryan, 17, who have been missing since September. She was arrested in Hawaii in February and extradited to Idaho where she is being held on $1 million bail.

Daybell was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of concealing or destroying evidence after police in Idaho executed a search warrant at his home in Fremont County.

"During the search of the property, investigators found what appears to be unidentified human remains," chief of police Gary Hagen said.

Vallow and Daybell fled to Hawaii last year after police and federal agents in Idaho questioned them repeatedly about the location of the children.

Vallow missed a court-ordered deadline to bring the children to the Rexburg Police Department in Idaho.

Tylee and Joshua were last seen in September 2019, according to police. Surveillance cameras at an Idaho storage facility showed Vallow and Daybell removing heavy items from a storage unit.

Police served a search warrant on the storage unit, but did not disclose if any evidence was found.

The case has frustrated law enforcement who believed the children were deceased.

At least 5 people -- including Vallow's ex-husband, Charles, and Daybell's wife, Tammy -- have died under suspicious circumstances in Vallow's inner circle.

Tammy told police that a man fired several shots at her in the weeks before she died mysteriously in her sleep.

Vallow and Daybell married 2 weeks after Tammy's death. Tammy's body was exhumed by police. Toxicology results are pending.

Vallow's first husband, Charles, was shot and killed by her brother, Alex, on July 11, 2019. Alex claimed he shot Charles in self-defense. Vallow was at home at the time of the shooting. She corroborated the story that her brother gave police.

Alex mysteriously died on December 11, 2019 of unknown causes.

Vallow and Daybell are cult members who were preparing for the second coming of Jesus in July 2020.

Tylee was preparing to return to college at the time of her disappearance. Joshua, who was adopted, was diagnosed with autism.

A Florida police union lost a motion to keep the identity of the white police officer who shot and killed female-to-male transgender NaTosha "Tony" McDade a secret.

McDade, who was described as a "black transgender man" by liberal news media outlets, was fatally shot by a Tallahassee police officer on May 27.

Police responding to a call about a fatal stabbing around 10:45 a.m. saw McDade who fit the description of the suspect, armed with a handgun.

An eyewitness told reporters McDade stabbed a man then fled the scene on foot.

Police approached McDade. According to a police report, McDade "then made a move consistent with using the firearm against the officer, who fired their issued handgun, fatally striking the adult female suspect."

Angry transgender activists took to social media to correct the victim's gender and to criticize police and the news media for "misgendering" McDade.

Tallahassee Police Chief Lawrence Revell said "anger is justified" after several Black people were killed by white officers in the state.

McDade's death is the third officer-involved shooting in Tallahassee in two months.

The police union tried to keep the officer's name a secret using "Marsy's Law." But the judge rejected the motion, saying the Attorney General would need to review the motion.

McDade was initially identified as a woman on social media.

"A black girl was just killed in Tallahassee by cops. She was walking alone and minding her business. Shot five times," one user tweeted. "Non-male so I know you mother***kers don't care. Just talking to myself..."
