Man accused of kidnapping woman in Rolla, almost running over officers, stealing several cars ROLLA, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A suspect is facing charges, accused of kidnapping a woman, almost running over an officer, leading officers on a chase and stealing several cars. Timothy Vance, 33, is charged with first-degree kidnapping, assault on a law enforcement officer, armed criminal action and endangering the welfare of a child. The incident took place just before 7:00 p.m. on September 1. Police said Vance was holding a woman at gunpoint at a home in the 1200 block of Turkey Run Drive. When they arrived, they said they heard a disturbance and a woman crying from inside the garage.

An officer shot a man who apparently showed a gun in Cincinnati’s Avondale neighborhood, authorities said Wednesday.

It happened around noon in the 900 block of Blair Avenue near the intersection of Ridgeway Avenue, just a block away from Woodward Park.

According to Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac, officers with Cincinnati’s gang enforcement squad were patrolling the area at the time.

One of those officers came in contact with a man who “produced a firearm,” Isaac said. That officer fired one shot, striking the alleged gunman in the torso.

The shooting victim – identified only as a male – was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. His condition is unknown.

Police: Man with weapon shot by Des Moines officer at homeless camp Rescue crews were called to a report of an officer-involved shooting in Des Moines at noon Friday. It happened south of Terrace Hill near a homeless encampment west of the MLK Bridge over the Raccoon River. Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek said officers were following up on a complaint about the homeless camp in that area. Officers found multiple people named in warrants and while dealing with them, they encountered a man in his 30s who wasn't cooperative. Parizek said the man jumped into the river. When he exited the river, he ran to the camp, initially arming himself with a shovel.

A firearm was recovered at the scene, police said.

Isaac said that the investigation is still in its very early stages, and new information will be provided as it becomes available.

No officers were injured.

Isaac said the shooting comes during a time of increased patrols in the Avondale area. Officers have been directed to give more attention to the Cincinnati neighborhood, Isaac said, following an uptick in violence in the area.

California governor signs bill striking down law that made it a crime to refuse police officer's request for help.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed a bill on Tuesday striking down a dated law that made it a crime to refuse a police officer's request for help. The law Newsom struck down Tuesday dated back to 1872 and made it a misdemeanor for any "able-bodied person 18 years of age or older" to refuse a police officer's call for assistance in making an arrest, according to The Sacramento Bee. The California Posse Comitatus Act of 1872 was used in the country's early days, notably as a means of enforcement to help catch runaway slaves. The bill Newsom signed into law is sponsored by state Sen.
