A Waldorf, Maryland housewife shot and killed her police detective husband in an apparent murder-suicide Friday evening.

Police say Christina Francis, 41, fatally shot Timothy Francis, 50, before turning the gun on herself in a murder-suicide that shocked neighbors on their quiet suburban street.

WUSA9 reports Charles County detectives responded to a 911 call around 6 p.m. on the 3300 block of Marylea Court after Christina's father found the bodies. He told police he tried to reach her by phone all day and when he didn't hear from her, he went to the home and discovered the bodies.

According to WUSA9, a neighbor who lives a few houses down saw Christina shortly before the incident.

"She had just walked past me walking her dog... and an hour and a half later, we heard the police sirens," Delancey Praylow III said.

"It's sad because it feels like one of your own family members because we were all tight like that," Praylow said.

"You never know what people go through," said another neighbor, Demetrius Wilson.

Incidents of intimate partner violence (IPV) and stalking against men by women are on the rise, according to a National Family Violence Survey published in 2017.

A new study reveals that more men were killed by women in 2017 than in the decade prior. The figures aren't in yet for 2018-2020, but the statistics of women killing men are expected to soar.

A Dallas man who drove to Houston to meet a woman he met online was robbed and killed by two unknown gunmen. Now Deonte Hicks' family says the police aren't moving quickly enough to solve the murder.

Hicks, a father to a 4-year-old girl, was killed by two Black males - which is given lower priority than a Black man who is killed by a white police officer.

The family says Hicks, 27, was catfished by a fake online profile. Hicks believed he was going to Houston to spend the weekend with a woman he had never seen in person.

He was killed on May 20 while standing outside his Car in the 1000 block of Centre Parkway. Two suspects were seen fleeing the area on foot. So far, police have no suspects.

According to ABC13, Hicks' death was was one of more than 350 murders in the city in 2020 alone. His death didn't make headlines or catch the attention of Black Lives Matter, the far-left organization that protests Black males killed by white police officers.

Hicks' family says police have stopped looking for the gunmen who killed Hicks.

"It has not been a top priority, my family and I, we've gone to Houston headquarters to talk to detectives. I've called a million times... nothing has been done," Hicks' aunt, Tamara Peterson, told CBS11.

The family traveled to Houston and put up fliers hoping someone would see them and provide a clue to catch the killers.

They were joined by Houston activist Quanell X on Friday, who said, "We have to mobilize. We have to get busy. We have to raise our voices... We gotta stop making excuses."

Boosie Badazz updated his fans on his condition after undergoing two surgical procedures to save his leg.

The 38-year-old rapper hopes his social media followers will help him raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to save his leg from amputation.

Boosie, who is a type 1 diabetic, was shot in the lower leg by an unknown gunman in a Dallas parking lot on Nov. 14.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., told his followers he is "not doing that good," and he doesn't have much time to find a specialist before he loses that leg.

Boosie said he needs a ton of money from his fans to pay for a "Specialist doctor" who works on "fixing body parts."

Sources tell TMZ bullet fragments were removed from his leg wound and surgeons added screws to stabilize the bones while the leg heals.

But type I diabetics are notoriously slow to heal, particularly after suffering a traumatic injury.

Boosie's doctors reportedly gave him medical options including amputation, but he declined, and was discharged home to Atlanta.

Now the "Wipe Me Down" rapper is searching for a specialist to save his leg from amputation.

The suspect is wearing all black skull cap, face covering, long-sleeved top and faded grey jeans that appear to be falling down, revealing light blue boxer shorts. He is holding what appears to be an Ak-47 pistol with a drum magazine.

Police say the gunman fled the scene of the shooting in a 2014 or 2015 black Chevrolet Camaro.

The rapper, real name Melvin Noble, was leaving a female friend's house on Nov. 11, when he called his manager to say he was being followed by another vehicle.

Noble was known to flaunt what appeared to be hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, designer clothes and flashy jewelry on social media. This photo of the rapper holding stacks of cash was uploaded to his Instagram account.

Noble drove onto Interstate 35 in an effort to elude the other vehicle but the car pursued him onto the freeway.

Police say Noble crashed his car, exited the vehicle and tried to escape on foot. But the gunman chased him down and shot him in the back of the head. Noble was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Noble's female friend later took to Instagram and denied setting up the rapper for a robbery.

Surgeons have saved rapper Boosie Badazz's foot from amputation after the Louisiana rapper was shot in the leg in a Dallas, Texas parking lot on Nov. 14.

The rap star is already back home in the Atlanta area recovering after multiple surgeries to save his foot.

Sources tell TMZ bullet fragments were removed and surgeons added screws to stabilize the bones while the leg heals.

The 38 year old and his entourage were fired upon in the parking lot of Big T's Plaza shopping mall, after paying his respects to his artist, the late rapper Mo3, who was shot and killed on a Dallas freeway days before.

Boosie was sitting in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van before the shooting at the mall and, after shooters opened fire on the vehicle, the musician was struck below the knee.

His manager denied reports that surgeons were prepping to take the "Wipe Me Down" rapper's foot.

So far, no suspects have been arrested in the case.

Boosie Badazz's manager has denied reports that the Louisiana rapper is undergoing surgery to amputate one of his feet after he was shot in the lower leg in Dallas, Texas.

Boosie's manager took to Instagram on Thursday to deny reports by posting a screenshot of a blog headline with the words: "Fake News"

A gunshot wound to the leg usually doesn't require a week in the hospital -- unless there are serious complications such as blood clots, pulmonary emboli, or diminished tissue perfusion causing tissue death.

Boosie, 38, has a history of type 1 diabetes which requires daily insulin injections to maintain normal blood sugar levels.

People who are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes are at higher risk for amputation because of a condition called peripheral artery disease, which narrows the arteries and lowers oxygenated blood perfusion to the arms and legs.

Another complication of a gunshot wound to the leg is pulmonary emboli caused by fragmented bone in the leg traveling through the veins to the lungs. A pulmonary embolism is potentially fatal.

Earlier this week Boosie posted an update to his Instagram assuring fans that he was well.

"I'm good. Appreciate all the happy birthday wishes and get well soon wishes."

After months of blaming white cops for killing Black men with impunity, rapper Tip "T.I." Harris agrees that rappers are more likely to be killed by other rappers.

Aspiring New York rapper Fivio Foreign tweeted about the rash of shootings that has taken the lives of several underground rappers including King Von, Mo3 and Dr. Rose, who were all shot to death in a 2 week span.

"Rappers are da most targeted people on planet earth. Target by police, by otha Rappers, by Media, By civilians & everybody else dat feel like we shouldnt have all da things we have!" Fivio tweeted.

T.I. shared the post on Instagram, and captioned it with the emojis for "No cap," meaning no lies.

Lil Boosie is reportedly scheduled to have one of his feet amputated due to massive blood loss after suffering a gunshot wound to the leg.

Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., was shot while sitting in a Sprinter van in a parking lot last week in Dallas, Texas.

The Louisiana rapper was in town to attend a memorial to his artist Mo3, 28, real name Melvin Noble, who was fatally shot by an unknown assailant on a Dallas freeway on Nov. 11.

Normally, a bullet wound to the leg is not a life-threatening condition. But if the bullet severed an artery in the leg the resulting blood loss can lead to tissue atrophy from lack of oxygen in the blood.

Boosie, 38, has a history of type 1 diabetes which requires daily insulin injections to maintain normal blood sugar levels.

People who are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes are at higher risk for amputation because of a condition called peripheral artery disease, which narrows the arteries and lowers oxygenated blood perfusion to the arms and legs.

Another complication of a gunshot wound to the leg is pulmonary emboli caused by fragmented bone in the leg traveling through the veins to the lungs. A pulmonary embolism is potentially fatal.

Black PhD candidate Nijinsky Latassia Dix, 37, was arrested and charged with second degree murder in the death of a man she dated for less than three months.

According to the Metropolitan Police Department, Dix, of Jacksonville, Florida, stalked and harassed Terry Hickman, 44, after he began seeing another woman in May.

Police say Dix stalked Hickman to his Washington, DC home, then shot him multiple times. Afterwards, Dix reportedly called her mom while Hickman bled out on the floor behind her.

"The individual stated the defendant called her and stated, 'He pushed me, and I shot him,'" according to a police report.

After being evaluated at a hospital, Dix was taken to police headquarters where she claimed she suffered short-term memory loss.

In a statement, a spokesman said Dix is employed at Notre Dame and the university "is aware of her arrest and will cooperate with law enforcement as appropriate."

Domestic violence against men is on the rise, according to a National Family Violence Survey.

A new study reveals that more men were killed by women in 2017 than in the decade prior. The figures aren't in yet for 2018-2020, but the statistics of women killing men are expected to soar.

In the past, scorned women harmed themselves rather than their men. That is about to change.

Police identified 2 persons of interest -- Antonius Montanez Aziz and Jeremiah Taylor -- in connection with the shooting.

Aziz was questioned by police and released. Police are still searching for Taylor.

According to Tyrell's father, Connie Sims, his son was recording a TikTok video in the front yard with his 12-year-old friend when a black SUV drove slowly down the 1200 block of Bell Avenue in the East Point neighborhood of Atlanta.

The two boys immediately hit the ground when they heard gunshots. The 12-year-old told police he heard bullets whizzing past his head.

When the shooting stopped, Tyrell was laying motionless on the ground with a gunshot wound to his head. He was pronounced dead at Grady Hospital.

"The guy came running in and told me, 'Your son was shot!' I just started running, jumped in the car, tried to resuscitate him. I tried to bring him back. I believe I did all I could," Connie Sims told reporters, according to AJC.com.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact East Point Police at 404-761-2177.
