Los Angeles, CA – A gunman who opened fire on a group of people, grazing a 14-year-old boy in the head, was fatally shot by police after he broke into a woman’s home and took her hostage on Friday night (video below).
Officers were able to see the suspect through a window as he held a gun to the hostage’s head, according to police.
A neighbor directly across from the apartment recorded the incident and posted the footage to Twitter.
“Based on the already incredibly violent actions & fearing the suspect was going to kill the hostage, SWAT entered the apartment,” the LAPD said.
This week, a Massachusetts Superior Court judge refused to allow any delay of the state’s vaccine mandate that is set to begin on October 17th. The decision has already caused a wave of state troopers to file their paperwork to quit the force and even more are expected to resign before the mandate kicks in.
Back in Florida, the Laundrie family’s neighbors have spoken out about a strange camping trip Christopher and Roberta Laundrie took with their 23-year-old son the day her family reported her as missing.
According to Charlene and William Guthrie, the family set off in a new, small camper attached to their truck on Sept. 11 for what the Guthries figured was a weekend getaway, FOX News reported.
They said Petito had been living at the Laundrie home prior to the couple’s cross-country trip in Petito’s converted camper van, and said they had no idea Brian Laundrie had returned home without her on Sept. 1.
The Guthries said when police later came around asking neighbors questions in relation to a missing persons case, they told them about the camping excursion, FOX News reported.
William Guthrie noted he thought it was odd that the entire family would be camping in such a small camper.
