  • A school resource officer is being hailed as a hero after he exchanged gunshots Wednesday morning with a 19-year-old former student who fired several shots at Dixon High School in Illinois. >> Read more trending news “From the angle I’m looking at right now, a lot of things went right when a great many of them could have gone wrong,” Dixon Mayor Li Arellano Jr. said at a news conference Wednesday. Authorities first got reports of an armed man on campus just after 8 a.m., police Chief Steve Howell said. The gunman, whose name was not released, was confronted by a school resource officer after he fired several shots near the west gym, Howell said. The gunman ran when he saw the officer, who chased after him. Howell said the suspect fired several shots at the officer as he tried to get away, but the officer was not injured. The officer returned fire, striking the gunman, according to authorities. The suspect was taken to a hospital for treatment of his wound, which did not appear to be life-threatening, Howell said. The officer, who was not identified, was placed on paid administrative leave as is standard in similar cases, according to the chief. No other injuries were reported. “I cannot be more proud of the police officer and the way he responded to the situation,” Howell said. “With shots ringing out through the hallways of the school, he charged toward the suspect and confronted him, head-on. Because of his heroic actions, countless lives were saved.” Dixon High School and nearby campuses were placed under lockdown as authorities searched the school for any signs of another shooter. Investigators believe the unidentified suspect acted alone. Howell said officers found students and staff members behind doors barricaded with desks and bookshelves while they were clearing the school. “The students and staff responded to this situation extremely well,” he said. All students have since been reunited with their families. The circumstances leading to the shooting were not immediately clear. Authorities did not say what motivated the attack. Police continue to investigate.
  • On Monday afternoon, a Georgia woman who allegedly stabbed her 17-year-old stepcousin to death in 2015 pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter. Olivia Smith, then 18, allegedly killed her stepcousin, Abbey Hebert,  outside an Acworth, Georgia, home on Nov. 14, 2015. According to the criminal warrant, Smith and Hebert had an argument that turned physical when Smith grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed Hebert. Smith then chased Hebert outside the home, where witnesses described seeing the teen on top of Hebert, stabbing her multiple times. >> Read more trending news  Smith cried in the court room of Cobb County Superior Court as the prosecutor Jesse Evans recounted the events of the day she allegedly killed Hebert. Evans said that, on the day of the stabbing, Smith told police that she and Hebert had smoked something prior to the stabbing and that “God told her to go after Abbey.” “There are no winners. There’s only losers here and there’s none greater than Abbey Hebert and her family,” Evans said. During his victim impact statement, Hebert’s father spoke directly to Smith and her family in court, calling their actions appalling. Smith broke down once again and the judge had to stop the father to ask him to address the court and not individuals. “None of us will be the same. It’s not a grief that we live with on Nov. 14. It’s a daily grief and we live with it every second of every day,” Steve Hebert said. Olivia Smith’s sister, Hannah Smith, gave a witness impact statement. “I stand before you today to speak on behalf of my sister’s character,” Hannah Smith said. “My sister is not a monster. Olivia loved Abbey. She would do anything for her. Olivia and Abbey were best friends. They were family.” Hannah Smith said drugs were to blame for what happened that day. “Abbey would not want Olivia to be confined to a cell for the rest of her life,” she said. “She would understand that drugs took over Olivia. Drugs have destroyed our family and our lives forever.” After hearing the statements, Judge Ann B. Harris choked up as she sentenced Smith to 20 years in prison. “There’s two lives that are destroyed,” Harris told the court. “Abbey will never be back, and you, Miss Smith, have to live with that. I do hope you think about this every day for the rest of your life.” Harris said Smith will get credit for time served. She then addressed Hebert’s family and friends who believed the sentence should’ve been longer. “Nothing can replace Miss Hebert, but that is the maximum I can do under the law,” Harris said.  She also had a message for Smith's family. “For those of you who think Miss Smith needs a lesser sentence, she made a choice and engaged in conduct and this was the result,” she said.

  • Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputies have arrested six people who they are calling “tomb raiders,” saying they fraudulently took ownership of 44 homes in Weston, Lauderhill, Tamarac and other places in the county. >> Read more trending news Catherine Lichtman, Mircho Murdjeff, Gillian Solomon, Illya Tinker, Patricia Tinker and Darren Tinker face more than 600 felony charges that include grand theft, identity theft, organized scheme to defraud and unlawful filing of false documents, deputies said.  Detectives started their investigation when a seventh person suspected in the alleged scheme, Compton Maycock-Beckles, was arrested in 2016 on grand theft and fraud charges after he was caught living in a foreclosed home in Weston, according to the arrest report. The original owner of the home told detectives that he did not give permission to Maycock-Beckles either to live in or sell the home.  Deputies said the six suspects operated under different company names such as Global Homebuyers, Prestige Home Buyers and Global Management Consulting Group. They used quit claim deeds and attorney authorizations to take ownership of homes, according to deputies. Detectives said the suspects also would then sell, rent or live in the homes, or also sell the same home to more than one person and collect money from both people at the same time. The suspects also used power of attorney to access deceased homeowners’ bank accounts and Social Security checks so it appeared as if the victims had given the six permission, according to the sheriff’s office.  Solomon and Illya, Patricia and Darren Tinker remain at the Broward County Jail on $3 million bond each. Lichtman and Murdjeff are being held at the jail on $900,000 bond each, according to jail records.

The report said when Dunn's mother attempted to call deputies, Dunn grabbed the victim's walker and snatched the phone. When the mother finally contacted deputies, she told them that Dunn came home last week and started punishing and starving her, the report said. Deputies said the victim told them that she survived on crumbs and candies that she discovered around the house. She said her daughter wouldn't give her her medication and refused to take her to the doctor, deputies said. 'I think we need to get to know our neighbors a little better,' Banyan said.

Dunn remains jailed in lieu of $15,000 bail.
