Crime Man kills baby and 2 family members in Brooklyn home
Texas 4-year-old Shoots 7-month-old Baby
Incident does not appear to have shocked neighbors as "accidents happen".The condition of the infant is unknown following the shooting at a house in the 300 block of South 25th Street at around 2:31 p.m. local time. KWKT-TV reports that the baby was conscious and breathing when taken to McLane Children's Hospital.
A Brooklyn man methodically murdered his 1-year-old daughter, his stepdad and his 16-year-old stepbrother before killing himself inside their gore-spattered apartment.
Terrance Briggs, whose domestic battles with the stepdad had twice brought cops to their home, shot the other three in their heads before turning the weapon on himself, police said.
The murdered child’s grandmom stumbled onto the grisly murder scene when she arrived Wednesday for 5 a.m. babysitting duties at the Riverdale Osborne Towers in Brownsville, police said.
Hamas kills man wanted in attack on Palestinian PM
A man wanted for a bombing that targeted the Palestinian premier's convoy as he visited Gaza last week was killed in a firefight Thursday with Hamas forces.The Interior Ministry in Gaza said the suspect, Anas Abu Khousa, 26, refused to surrender when Hamas surrounded his hideout. It said Abu Khousa was killed in the exchange of fire along with two Hamas policemen. Another suspect later died of his wounds at a hospital, it said.
Dead along with helpless little Laylay Briggs were her 27-year-old dad, along with Loyd Drain Jr., 57, and his 16-year-old namesake son Loyd III, according to police.
The four shared the apartment, and police sources said there was an ongoing dispute between the gunman and his stepdad.
A firearm was discovered in the home, although the gun was not in Terrance Briggs’ hands, the sources said. There was no suicide note left behind.
Terrance Briggs and his baby girl were found inside one bedroom in the fourth floor apartment, while Loyd III was in another bedroom and his dad’s body was found in a bathroom.
Cops believe that Briggs shot his stepfather first, then his teen stepbrother, and finally his own daughter.
The elder Drain “was a caring person — like a happy, joyful person,” said Josh Sanders, 17, a friend of the murdered teen. “He didn't really care what anybody said about him ... he just went on about his day, and he just enjoyed himself.”
Boy Scout with Down syndrome wasn't stripped of merit badges, path to Eagle Scout rank, group says
The Boy Scouts of America said there are misconceptions about a Utah boy's path to an Eagle Scout rank. The group said Logan Blythe is still a Boy Scout and still has the option to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, even with modifications. The Boy Scouts said the National Disabilities Advancement Team wants to work with Logan's family to review what he already accomplished and figure out a path forward.
Juan Campos, 15, another close friend of the slain teen, started screaming upon hearing the incomprehensible news.
“I'm very upset ... I was screaming all through the house,” said Campos, who recalled his friend as a good basketball player.
“He was just was focused on his family," said Campos. “He had very big dreams and he was smart,” he said. “His dad loved him. They used to do fun things.”
Neighbor Vanessa Swain, 50, was devastated by word of the slaughter inside her apartment building. She referred to the burly Loyd Jr. by his nickname of “Big Daddy.”
“It breaks my heart to see them gone and to see his kids,” said Swain. “Waking up 7 o'clock to someone telling me all of them are gone. My heart is so numb right now.”
Neighbor James Walker, 62, said the victims moved in about 10 years ago.
"They were friendly people. They ain't never have no trouble,” he said.
"This is a shocking thing to me because stuff like this just don't happen," he added. "They were a wholesome, respectful, decent family."
