Man killed after being shot in the head in Bridgeport

Man killed after being shot in the head in Bridgeport BRIDGEPORT, CT (WFSB) - A 21-year-old man was shot in the head in Bridgeport while sitting in a vehicle Sunday night. 

MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI – A man with an “extensive” criminal history will spend time in prison for causing – and fleeing from – a crash that seriously injured a woman.

Ronnie Lee Johnson, 29, of Muskegon Heights was drunk when he caused the crash on Nov. 10, 2018, in Muskegon Heights, according to the charges against him.

Johnson pleaded no contest to operating a vehicle while under the influence causing an incapacitating injury and failing to stop at a serious injury accident. He was sentenced last month by Muskegon County Circuit Judge Timothy Hicks to a minimum of three years and a maximum of 10 in prison.

3 Amish children killed, another injured after vehicle crashes into buggy

  3 Amish children killed, another injured after vehicle crashes into buggy Four Amish siblings were in the buggy traveling home from school around 3:20 p.m. when a vehicle struck them from behind, officials said.It's the second motor vehicle-buggy crash this year to claim multiple lives in Michigan. Three young siblings died in a crash in June in Branch County.

A court document shows he was sentenced as a third-time habitual offender, though the prosecutor’s office indicates he has seven prior felony convictions.

The crash that occurred around 3:20 a.m. on Hoyt Street pinned the victim and she had to be extricated from her vehicle, said Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat.

The 24-year-old victim suffered a severely broken leg that required significant surgical repair, a head injury requiring 30 stitches on her face, contusions throughout her body and blurred vision, Maat said.

Johnson’s prior felony convictions include second degree fleeing and eluding and resisting and obstructing police in 2007, for which he served about three years in prison, according to the Michigan Department of Corrections website.

Pitt grad student gets prison for killing McKeesport woman in fatal DUI crash

Pitt grad student gets prison for killing McKeesport woman in fatal DUI crash A Rochester, N.Y., man will spend four to eight years in prison for killing a 19-year-old woman in a drunk-driving crash last year in West Mifflin. Robert L. Darrisaw Jr., 24, was sentenced Tuesday by Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Thomas E. Flaherty, who found him guilty of homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence and related counts in a nonjury trial in June. Darrisaw, who was just starting graduate school in social work at the University of Pittsburgh, had a 0.163 percent blood alcohol content early Sept. 23 when he crashed into a car on Lebanon Church Road at McArthur Drive, more than twice the legal limit for driving of 0.08.

He served about a year in prison for three convictions for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance in 2016, the MDOC website shows. Other felony convictions include possession of a controlled substance in 2014 and resisting and obstructing police in 2018, Maat said.

Johnson also has misdemeanor convictions for drunk driving in 2014 and domestic violence in 2016 as well as an “extensive juvenile history,” Maat said.
