There is an update in the tragic story of a Florida mom who was fatally shot by her toddler while on a Zoom call.

On August 11, Shamaya Lynn, 21, was on a Zoom call with co-workers when they heard a loud bang and she fell backwards off her seat. A co-worker who called 911 said she saw Lynn's toddler crying behind her.

First responders arrived at the apartment off Wymore Road in Altamonte Springs, and found Lynn unresponsive with a single gunshot wound to the head. Investigators determined that her 2-year-old son shot her with an unsecured gun.

Camaryn's personal belongings, suitcases and boxes were piled in a corner of Tyga's garage waiting for someone to collect them.

According to TMZ, a drunken Camaryn showed up at his house at 3 a.m. Monday "shouting" for Tyga to let her in. After he let her inside the home, an argument ensued and Tyga allegedly pinned Camaryn against a wall and threw the 22-year-old Instagram model out of his house.

On Tuesday, Camaryn filed a domestic violence report with the Los Angeles Police Department.

Cumberland County Sheriff

A U.S. Army sergeant who fatally shot his pregnant mistress as she drove on a Georgia highway, was arrested in North Carolina.

Alonzo Dargan Jr., 30, was arrested at Fort Bragg in Cumberland County on Thursday.

Dargan was on active duty at Fort Bragg as a staff sergeant, Channel 2 Action News reports.

Dargan is accused of killing Akeila Ware, 29, of LaGrange, Ga., and their unborn child, as she drove on Highway 18 in Troup County, Ga. on Tuesday, October 5.

Dargan has been charged with murder, feticide and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Authorities initially believed Ware was shot during a road rage incident.

After Ware was shot, her bullet-riddled Honda Accord veered off the highway and crashed near E. Drummond Road.

Georgia State Patrol troopers responding to a report of a single-car crash found Ware unresponsive inside the car, authorities said.

Ware and her unborn child were pronounced dead at a Columbus-area hospital.

Ware, a single mother of five, was expecting her 6th child.

Dargan is married with children. None of Ware's other children were fathered by Dargan.

Troup County Sheriff James Woodruff announced Dargan's arrest in a press conference on Friday morning.

"I could not believe somebody had shot and killed a young mother with five children," Woodruff said. "And on top of that, killed her and she had a baby inside her that resulted in the death of that baby."

Woodruff said Dargan grew up in Troup County.

Gwinnett County PD

Family members say a skull unearthed in Gwinnett County, Ga. in April was identified as missing 32-year-old Brittany Davis, of Greenville, South Carolina.

Davis went missing on March 7th, 2020, according to her family.

Bridgett Brown, Davis' niece, told Channel 2 Action News the family was initially told by Gwinnett police that a police sketch that resembled Davis was a "stock photo" of a white or Hispanic woman (above left).

Davis's disappearance did not receive press coverage in 2020, so her family and friends took to social media to get the word out.

"You guys my friend is #MISSING & has been since 3/7/2020," family friend Alicia La'Von wrote on Facebook last year.

"We have been friends for over ten years and she is my rock thru so many hard times. When my mom died she came to her funeral and just followed behind me to make sure no one upset me and made things worse...

"She was last seen in San Juan, she loved it there. My country Macon, GA girl living her best island life. Please you guys, Pray and repost. @ all the blogs and send them her picture."

La'Von updated her Facebook post on March 21, 2020 to say Davis was last seen at her residence in Greenville, South Carolina, with her fiancé, Michael Lee Wilkerson.

"She was last seen with this man, who could be in the Atlanta area," she wrote in the caption of photos showing Davis and Wilkerson together.

Gwinnett County police with the help of the U.S. Marshal's Task Force, and the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office arrested Wilkerson during a traffic stop in Buford, Ga. on August 24, 2021, according to WBTW.

Wilkerson was living in Lawrenceville, Ga. at the time of his arrest.

He was extradited to the Greenville County, SC Jail on August 31 and charged with murder. He is being held without bond.

Brown told Channel 2 Action News the family is concerned that the case did not receive enough attention in Georgia, where Wilkerson lived.

Brown said when the family first reached out to Gwinnett County police in response to a police artist sketch that resembled Davis, they were told that the sketch was a "stock photo" and that the skull belonged to a white, mixed race or Hispanic woman.

"We are very thankful that Greenville, SC Detective Nikki Bowdoin was persistent in pursuing the remains with the Gwinnett county police department," Brown told WSB-TV. "Without her, we may have never found out the truth."

Brown is hopeful that someone may know where the rest of Davis' remains can be found so she can receive a proper burial.

"We are hoping that news coverage of what has happened may jog someone's memory here in Gwinnett. Someone may have seen or had dealings with Michael Wilkerson and unknowingly may have details regarding my niece's murder or the dumping of her body.

"His arrest has been on the news in Greenville SC and other news outlets across the US but not here in Gwinnett county where the remains were found, where he lived, and where the arrest took place."

The rapper turned himself in to federal authorities on Thursday, September 23.

His lawyer, Charles Kuck, tells TMZ:

"Last night's manufactured charges are yet another example of how our justice system, from ICE down to the local level, unjustly targets young black men who seek to exercise their rights. There is no legitimate basis for these charges nor for ICE's continued antics, and we will fight until Mr. Joseph is justly vindicated."

At the time of last night's arrest, Savage was out on bond while awaiting a deportation hearing in connection with his 2019 immigration battle.

The "Bank Account" rapper, born Sheyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was previously arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers in Atlanta, Georgia in 2019 after the feds discovered his visa had expired and he was in America illegally.

McWright, of St. Paul, is currently being held in the Ramsey County Jail, awaiting extradition to Dunn County.

A second suspect, Antoine Suggs, 38, of St. Paul, is still at large and is considered armed and dangerous.

Dunn County Sheriff Kevin Bygd announced McWright's arrest late Thursday at a press conference. Bygd says more charges are expected as the investigation continues.

The cornfield is located 75 miles away from where the four friends were last seen at a bar in St. Paul on Saturday night.

Witnesses said the four friends left the bar and got into a black SUV with someone late Saturday. A second SUV was seen following the first SUV, according to the sheriff.

Bygd said the victims were killed at another location, then the bodies were driven to the cornfield where the SUV was abandoned. The killer left the scene in the second SUV.

Police arrested a hitman who shot and wounded South Carolina lawyer Alex Murdaugh as he changed a tire on the side of a highway.

Murdaugh was wounded three months after his wife, Maggie, 52, and son, Paul, 22 (pictured left), were shot and killed in an ambush at their South Carolina home on June 7.

Murdaugh, a well-known legal heir in SC, was shot in the head on a rural highway on Septmber 4. He survived the shooting, but he now faces arrest for allegedly embezzling millions of dollars from his law firm to buy opioids.

Police arrested Curtis Edward Smith, 61, on Tuesday on and charged him with shooting Murdaugh. Smith also faces charges of assisted suicide, assault and battery, possession of a firearm, insurance fraud and conspiracy to commit insurance fraud, Dailymail.com reports.

Police say Murdaugh hired Smith to kill him so his surviving son, Buster, 25, would receive a $10 million insurance payout. However, Smith was a bad shot.

Murdaugh's lawyer, Dick Harpootlian, says he knows who shot Maggie and Paul, and the suspect's name will be revealed this week. He said the motive for the murders was "personal".

Harpootlian acknowledged that Murdaugh is likely to be arrested for allegedly misappropriating millions from his own law firm.

Harpootlian said Murdaugh was still grieving the deaths of his wife and son when he embezzled millions from his law firm to finance his opioid addiction.

Murdaugh was fired from the law firm and the state bar revoked his law license for tampering with clients funds in escrow accounts.

Murdaugh has denied involvement in his wife and son's deaths.
