Oakland County PD

A manhunt is underway for James and Jennifer Crumbley, the parents of Ethan Crumbley, who shot and killed 4 students during a shooting rampage on Tuesday.

Police say James Crumbley purchased a 9MM semi-automatic handgun just days before his son's shooting spree at Oxford High School.

Ethan Crumbley, 15, reportedly showed off the murder weapon on social media in the days leading up to the shooting at Oxford High School.

Oakland County (Michigan) Prosecutor Karen McDonald announced four involuntary manslaughter charges against the Crumbleys.

An attorney for the parents said they would turn themselves in, but police suspect they are in the wind.

The Crumbleys are believed to be driving a black 2021 Kia Seltos SUV with Michigan plate number DQG 5203.

They were expected to be arraigned by video Friday in Rochester Hills, MSN reports.

Charges were filed against the couple after prosecutors say his mom texted him the day of the shooting to say "don't do it" and "learn not to get caught."

The Oakland County Fugitive Team, the FBI and U.S, Marshal Service, have joined in the search for the couple.

"The action of fleeing and ignoring their attorney certainly adds weight to the charges," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a press release Friday. "They cannot run from their part in this tragedy."

The suspect who killed Jacqueline Avant during a home invasion accidentally shot himself in the foot with an AR-15 rifle while burglarizing another home minutes later.

Avant, 81, was fatally shot around 2:20 a.m. Wednesday during a home invasion burglary in the affluent Truesdale Estates.

Jackie Avant, Clarence Avant's wife of 54 years, was pronounced dead at a hospital. Clarence Avant, 90, was at home, but uninjured during the home invasion.

An armed security guard posted at the Avant home was shot and wounded during the home invasion. He did not return fire.

Surveillance videos captured the suspect driving away from the Avant residence after shooting Mrs. Avant.

Minutes later, LAPD's Hollywood Division officers responded to a burglary call in the 6000 block of Graciosa Drive.

LAPD officers arrived to find Aariel Maynor, 29, hopping around in the backyard of the residence at about 3:30 a.m. He was suffering from a gunshot wound to the foot.

Beverly Hills police Chief Mark Stainbrook said Maynor accidentally shot himself in the foot with an AR-15 while burglarizing the home on Graciosa Drive. The AR-15 is believed to be the murder weapon.

Stainbrook said an "astute watch commander" at the LAPD "put two and two together," and reached out to Beverly Hills PD about similarities between the two shootings.

Evidence collected at both crime scenes linked the two crimes.

Police said Maynor acted alone and there is no further threat to Truesdale Estate residents.

The suspect was taken to a hospital where he is being treated for the self-inflicted gunshot wound. He will be booked into jail once he is released from the hospital.

Maynor, of Los Angeles, is a gang banger with an extensive criminal history. He was out on parole at the time of the murder.

An arrest has been made in the shooting death of Jacqueline Avant, wife of music legend Clarence Avant. Mrs. Avant, 81, was killed during a home invasion in the exclusive Truesdale Estates on Wednesday.

TMZ reports a family member confirmed the arrest on Friday.

A Beverly Hills police unit was posted outside the couple's $7 million hilltop mansion on the 1100 block of Maytor place. The home invaders shattered a rear glass door to enter the residence around 2:20 a.m. Clarence Avant, 90, was at home at the time, but he wasn't harmed.

The Beverly Hills Police Department will hold a news conference at 12:30 p.m. PT to reveal details about the arrest.

Movie mogul Tyler Perry vowed to use his wealth and "every available resource" to help find the murderer.

He mentioned the couple's daughter, former US Ambassador to the Bahamas, Nicole Avant, in a tweet.

"My heart breaks for Clarence and Nicole and all the Avant family," he tweeted on Thursday. "This world can be so cruel and cold!! I have no idea what kind of sub-human could shoot an 81 year old woman, and in her own home."

He added, "But you can rest assured that every available resource will be used to find whoever is responsible for this awful nightmare. This is tremendously sad."

Police discovered more FedEx packages dumped in the woods in Alabama, about 75 miles from where about 400 packages were found in a ravine.

Nearly two dozen FedEx boxes were found along a rural road this week in the Alabama town of Jemison, police say.

According to the Blount County Sheriff's Office, the FedEx driver dumped packages into an Alabama ravine 6 times.

"We are in the process of contacting officials with Fed Ex so that they can investigate this situation and contact their customers," police said.

The driver who was assigned to deliver all the packages has been identified and questioned by police.

"This will not be an easy or fast case to close," said Moon who declined to name the driver. "Again I am asking for patience from our citizens as our investigators work through this case."

Hayden residents Chris and Andrea Finchum finally received an Xbox that was dumped in the ravine. The package that it came in was wet and damaged.

"It's heartbreaking that someone would take advantage of people when they are supposed to be delivering kids toys to them for Christmas," Andrea Finchum told KLTV.

Memphis, Tennessee-based FedEx said in a statement that the driver is no longer employed by FedEx Ground. FedEx is cooperating with law enforcement, ABC News reports.

FedEx sent multiple trucks and drivers to pick up the packages, according to the sheriff.

Two suspects have been arrested in the shooting death of 14-year-old Samir Jefferson, Philadelphia police say.

Jefferson was chased and shot 18 times by several gunmen after allegedly sending a fight video to someone on social media.

Police say Samir Jefferson was at a North Philadelphia bus stop near his high school in the city's Feltonville neighborhood when a car pulled up around 3:30 p.m. on Monday.

Several men got out of the car and chased the boy down a sidewalk on the 100 block of West Wyoming Avenue.

The assailants opened fire -- striking Jefferson 18 times. He ran another block before collapsing and was pronounced dead at Temple University Hospital.

Police collected 35 spent shell casings near a Rite Aid pharmacy. More than a dozen bullet holes dotted one wall of the pharmacy.

The gunmen left the scene in a vehicle driven by a female. Police stopped the vehicle nearby and took the occupants into custody.

On Wednesday, Deputy Commissioner Ben Naish said three separate shooters in their 20s were involved in Jefferson's murder, according to 6 ABC News.

Naish said two suspects are in custody and three other suspects are still at large. A woman was reportedly cooperating in the investigation.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Naish urged the suspects to turn themselves in.

"They know who they are. I don't know what they're doing to try to hide their way or prevent them from being arrested," said Naish.

A source tells Action News that Jefferson may have been killed for taunting someone on social media.

Jefferson's family say his Instagram shows he messaged a fight video to someone approximately 15 minutes before he was killed.

Police say they are investigating whether the video was a factor in this case.

"Every time I close my eyes, I see my son," Denise Goodson told Fox 29 Philadelphia. "That's my son, I birthed him. He wanted to be somebody. He wanted to be known," she cried.
 

Samir's murder was the third in just 2 days in Philadelphia. A 16-year-old boy was shot dead the day before Samir was killed.

Police say social media drives most of the violent deaths of young people in Philly.

The city broke a longstanding record for homicides in one year with 508 in 2021.

"I don't care about no justice, I don't care about retaliation, I just want my son back. None of that can help me get my son back," Goodson cried out.

An armed security guard was shot outside the home where Jacqueline Avant, wife of music legend Clarence Avant, was shot and killed early Wednesday.

Jacqueline, 81, was fatally shot by a gunman who forced his way into the couple's Beverly Hills area mansion. Clarence Avant, 90, was at home but wasn't harmed, a source tells TMZ.

The security guard who was stationed outside the home was shot and wounded. He did not return fire, police say.

Beverly Hills police responded to a 911 call from the residence around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday in the upscale Truesdale estates.

They found Mrs. Avant suffering from a single gunshot wound inside the residence. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital later that morning.

Police found a broken glass door at the rear of the mansion. They believe the home invaders targeted the elderly couple whose mansion is valued at $7 million.

Various upscale Los Angeles neighborhoods have been plagued by a string of "follow-home" robberies.

Former BET host and actor Terrence "J" Jenkins, 39, was followed on his way home to his Sherman Oaks neighborhood by someone in an SUV who opened fire at his car around 3 a.m. on November 10. He managed to escape with his life.

Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore announced that a police task force has been created to apprehend "follow-home" robbers.

California is also plagued by crowbar-wielding smash-and-grab burglars who invade high end stores such as Louis Vuitton and Nordstrom.

Two gunmen chased a 14-year-old boy and shot him 18 times while he stood on a corner waiting for a SEPTA bus in Philadelphia on Monday.

Police say Samir Jefferson was standing on the corner of Sun and Wyoming avenues in the Feltonville neighborhood around 3:30 p.m. when a car pulled up and the gunmen stepped out and approached him.

The gunmen chased the boy -- firing 36 shots and hitting him 18 times.

"A car load, possibly one or two cars, pull up," said Chief Inspector Scott Small. "At least two males get out, and they start shooting and chasing this victim and the victim runs about a block east on Wyoming."

Samir was pronounced dead at 4 p.m. at Temple University Hospital.

The suspects fled in the vehicle which was stopped by police at the intersection of 5th Street and Somerville Avenue. Three suspects -- two men and a woman -- were taken into custody.

Police markers covered dozens of spent shell casings in the street outside a Rite Aid pharmacy and large caliber bullet holes dotted a wall of the pharmacy.

Multiple news outlets filmed CSI officers collecting evidence at the scene.

"Earlier today, we lost another young life to senseless gun violence--the fourth since yesterday," Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said. "My heart grieves for the victims, their families, and this city."

Samir's murder occurred a day after a 16-year-old boy was shot eight times in North Philadelphia.

Philadelphia has recorded at least 508 homicides so far this year, making 2021 the deadliest year in the city's history.

It seems American artists haven't learn a thing since rapper A$AP Rocky was locked up for acting out in a foreign country. It took a special request from then-President Donald Trump to secure his release.

American singer Ari Lennox cried "racism" when she was locked up for showing out in Amsterdam over the weekend.

The Grammy-nominated singer, who is Black, claims she was "racially profiled" at the Amsterdam airport and tweeted "Amsterdam security hate black people."

Nicky Nelson/WENN.com

According to published reports, the 30-year-old R&B star was arrested at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport for disorderly conduct.

Like most entitled American stars who get into trouble when traveling abroad, Lennox played the victim on Twitter.

"I'm being arrested in Amsterdam for reacting to a woman racially profiling me... Fuck Amsterdam security. They hate black people... I just want to go home. I'll never leave my house again."

However, Amsterdam police told a different story. Police said Lennox was impolite to a female security officer and she was cuffed when she refused to calm down.

"Our unit found a woman full of emotions, that wouldn't calm down. That's why she had to be taken into custody... she was probably under the influence of the alcohol, and this was later confirmed... Our concern is to get everything on paper and ask her why she made those threats."

Derrick Salters/WENN

A KLM spokesperson added:

"There was an altercation ... about seeing her identification. The lady did not show the correct document. When the employee confronted her, she drew the wrong conclusions. Meanwhile, her management has apologized to us and she will make a statement later today."

Lennox, real name Courtney Shanade Salter, grew up in Washington, D.C. and was inspired by singers like Mariah Carey and Ella Fitzgerald.

Jussie Smollett arrived at a Chicago courthouse on Monday as jury selection gets underway on Day 1 of his MAGA hoax trial.

The nervous-looking actor arrived at the courtroom of Judge James Linn shortly before 9:30 a.m. with his friends and family members.

Smollett was one of the most celebrated LGBT+ stars who routinely rubbed elbows with Barack and Michelle Obama and other political elites before his fall from grace.

NurPhoto/NurPhoto via Getty Images

Smollett is pictured with former First Lady Michelle Obama in the State Dining Room of the White House on February 24, 2016.

Police say the Empire actor staged a racist and homophobic attack on himself on a chilly night in Chicago in January 2019.

The disgraced actor is accused of lying to police and costing Chicago taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. Police complained of lost resources while they hunted two white MAGA hat-wearing attackers who didn't exist.

Prosecutors say Smollett paid Nigerian brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo $3,500 to carry out a fake racist attack on him.

Smollett allegedly staged the attack to wring more money out of Empire show producers. He also allegedly hoped to parlay press coverage about his attack to get more movie roles.

However, the details of the staged racist and homophobic attack were too bizarre to believe and his story unraveled after police reviewed surveillance videos from the night of the alleged attack.

Smollett, 39, was originally charged with 16 counts of lying to police but the charges were dropped by Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx.

After a public outcry, a special prosecutor charged Smollett with six counts of felony disorderly conduct in February 2020.

He faces a maximum of three years in prison for each count or 18 years in prison if convicted.

Smollett continues to maintain he is an innocent victim and not the mastermind behind the hoax homophobic attack.

Officials in Lubbock, Texas have not charged a married man who fatally shot his mistress' ex-husband during a child custody dispute.

Chad Read's widow Jennifer Read released cell phone footage of the verbal altercation that led to Read's fatal shooting.

In the video, 54-year-old father Chad Read is seen arguing with his ex-wife Christina Read's new boyfriend Kyle Carruth.

Carruth is heard telling Read to "get off my property."

Read was there to pick up a son he had with ex-wife Christina Read.

At one point, Carruth went inside the house to retrieve a rifle while Read continued arguing with Christina Read outside.

"Where's my son at? I'll go get him. I'm supposed to have him at 3:15," Chad Read is heard telling Christina Read. "And you're playing games telling me that I can pick him up at six? I've already got the cops on the way to your mom's house... Because that's probably where he is."

Then, Carruth emerged from the house with the rifle and the two men briefly argued on the front porch.

Carruth fired a warning shot at Read's feet before firing two shots into Read's chest, killing him.

According to Jennifer Read, Carruth was angry that Read threatened to expose his extramarital affair to his wife, Judge Ann-Marie Carruth whose jurisdiction is the 72nd District Court in Crosby and Lubbock counties.

Through her attorney, Jennifer Read released a statement along with her cell phone footage.

In an affidavit, Jennifer Read accused Christina Read and Kyle Carruth of engaging "in a conspiracy" to murder Chad Read to silence him.

In a Facebook post, Jennifer Read wrote:

"Please share. Make this go viral. Does this look like a man in fear of his life or the life of others? Look at that smile. He is a cold blooded murderer."

A jury has returned guilty verdicts for three men charged with fatally shooting Ahmaud Arbery in Brunswick, Georgia last year.

Father and son Greg and Travis McMichael and neighbor Roddie Bryan were found guilty on all counts including malice murder and felony murder on Wednesday.

The McMichaels pursued Arbery in their pickup truck after they spotted him leaving a home that was under construction in their Satilla Shores subdivision on Feb. 23, 2020.

Travis McMichael claims he shot Arbery in self-defense after Arbery grabbed for his shotgun. Bryan joined the pursuit and recorded the video of Travis McMichael shooting Arbery.

The murder would have gone unnoticed, but someone leaked the video online and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation took over the case from local police.

The three men were arrested and charged following the public uproar.

The guilty verdicts come a week after 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was cleared on all charges in his murder case in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Rittenhouse faced life in prison if convicted of murdering two Antifa activists and wounding a third man during the Jacob Blake riots last summer.

A suspect accused of kidnapping and assaulting a woman tried to flee from police by jumping through a hotel window 6 floors above the ground.

The incident happened on Sunday morning at a Quality Hotel in Blue Ash, Ohio.

Police bodycam video shows 19-year-old Onjre Damon George answering a cop's question in a hotel room.

A moment later, he slipped the cop's grip and fled toward the window where he tried to jump through it.

But the reinforced glass didn't break and the suspect bounced back into the room.

"Where you going?" the officer asked, before cuffing him.

The Blue Ash Police Department said cops responded to a welfare check call after an employee saw the suspect with a woman who appeared to be in distress.

The employee told police "She was discreetly able to ask the female if she was okay and the female used body language to indicate that something was wrong."

When police arrived to the suspect's hotel room, they asked him if "something happened" between him and the woman. George nervously answered their questions, before attempting to flee through the window.

George was charged with kidnapping, rape and assault. He will be served Thanksgiving dinner at the Hamilton County Justice Center where he is being held on $100,000 bond. His trial is scheduled for December 1.

The woman was transported to a hospital.

The San Francisco Bay Area is under siege by hammer-wielding mobs taking advantage of lax misdemeanor laws.

On Saturday, in Walnut Creek, a group of about 80 people carrying crowbars swarmed into a Nordstrom and left a minute later carrying expensive merchandise. They piled into about 25 cars and sped off.
 

"We probably saw 80 people in ski masks crowbars a bunch of weapons. They were looting the Nordstrom's right here," local PF Chang’s manager Brett Barrette told KGO.

Walnut Creek Police said that one employee was pepper sprayed and two others were kicked and punched.

Police were on the scene within minutes and arrested three of the perpetrators.

A day earlier, a smaller group of masked men ran into a San Francisco Union Square Louis Vuitton and emptied the entire store or merchandise.


 
Police were there quickly to apprehend a few of the thieves who are probably back on the streets due to the Bay Area's lax bail reform laws.

A pharmacy in Oakland was also hit by a mob of looters on Saturday.

On Sunday, a group of about 40-50 teenagers carrying hammers stormed into a Macy's and other stores in the Southland Mall.

They smashed glass cases and stole jewelry from Sam's jewelry store. About an hour later, in San Jose, another group entered a Lululemon store in the outdoor mall at Santana Row and stole merchandise before fleeing the scene.

All of the smash-and-grab robberies were over in less than a minute.

Residents blame Democratic lawmakers who downgraded the theft of property less than $950 in value from a felony to a misdemeanor charge.

The same lawmakers also enacted bail reform laws making it easier for criminals to hit the streets following arrests.

Waukesha PD

At least 5 people were killed and dozens more injured when a vehicle rammed police barriers and plowed into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday.

An officer opened fire on the speeding vehicle after the suspect broke through police barriers to flee the scene.
 

Chilling videos showed bodies flying as the red Ford Escape SUV mowed down children, high school cheerleaders and dancing grannies. The suspect was reportedly fleeing police after leaving the scene of a stabbing.
 


 
Police eventually located the abandoned SUV and traced an expired driver's license in the vehicle to 38-year-old Darrell E. Brooks Jr., an admitted pimp and Black supremacist.
 

Brooks faces multiple counts of capital murder, reckless endangerment, fleeing the scene of a felony, possession of a firearm by a felon, and many more charges.

According to court records, Brooks was released on $1,000 bond just two days before the tragedy. He has a long criminal history that includes domestic abuse and sex trafficking charges.

In addition to being a career criminal, Brooks is an aspiring rapper who uploaded tracks to YouTube and SoundCloud calling himself Mathboi Fly.

According to posts on his Facebook page, Brooks was unhappy that 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges by a Kenosha, Wisconsin jury on Friday.

Brooks' Facebook posts and music called for violence against white people and supported Black Lives Matter. One post specifically described running white people over.

Facebook took down Mathboi Fly's page hours after the incident.

Another viral video from Brazil shows real men beating down a punk after he tried to rob a girl on a busy street in broad daylight.

The video shows a brazen food delivery driver ride up on a motorcycle and snatch a girl's purse. Before he could flee with the purse, a group of men knocked him off the motorcycle and stomped him into the pavement.

Other men piled on and taught the guy a valuable lesson with their hands and feet.

You rarely see this type of bravery here in the U.S. unless the men are not from here. There are a lot of Jamaican men in America who will not tolerate another man disrespecting Black women.

Some American men are soy boys with too much Estrogen in their blood. They would rather record the action on their cell phones or stand around and watch.

In the second video below, another weak man is handled by real men after he beat his girlfriend in the street.

Again, grown men risking their lives to protect a woman they don't know.

If you are a petty crook who targets women, don't do it in Brazil: REAL men exist there. You might get hurt or killed.
