2 dead bodies found in home associated with kidnapping suspect

  2 dead bodies found in home associated with kidnapping suspect Two dead bodies were found overnight in a home associated with a Springfield man already facing charges in connection with a woman who was beaten and held against her will, the district attorney said. The home at at 1333 Page Blvd. is the last known residence of Stewart Weldon, who was arrested Sunday after a police pursuit. Officers said they found a brutalized woman in his car who told them she'd been held captive for a month. Investigators said they could be at the home for days. They had recovered two bodies as of Thursday afternoon and the digging appeared to be continuing. "At this juncture, we don't believe there's any heightened risk or threat to members of the public in this immediate neighborhood or anywhere else," Hampden County DA Anthony Gulluni said. Weldon reportedly sped away from officers who tried to stop him over a broken tail light Sunday. The chase ended when police were able to box him in, according to a police report. Officers wrote that the chase concluded when Weldon put his car into reverse and hit a police cruiser. He was taken into custody at gunpoint. Weldon thrashed violently during the arrest and screamed, "She has a gun and there is a body in the trunk," police said. No gun was found, but officers said they did find two knives in Weldon's pockets. The woman who was a passenger in Weldon’s car told officers that she was held captive, beaten and raped in a home on Page Boulevard, the police report said.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego police officer accidentally shot himself in the leg Sunday while pursuing a hit-and-run suspect who pointed a weapon at officers and was eventually arrested on the roof of a parking structure near the finish line of an annual marathon , authorities said.

Officers fired at the woman but missed after she brandished the weapon at the parking facility at the edge of a downtown plaza shared by City Hall, police Chief David Nisleit told reporters.

The suspect, who the police did not identify, threw the weapon from the top of the structure to the street below before being taken into custody, Nisleit said. It was unclear what type of weapon it was, but investigators were looking into whether it was a pellet gun that resembles the real thing, the chief said.

Detectives were also investigating whether the woman was connected to a kidnapping in nearby Chula Vista, Nisleit said. In that incident a man called police to report that he was bound and gagged at gunpoint but managed to escape, he said.

In announcing the woman's arrest, police said the scene was secure and there was no threat to the area near the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon, which brought thousands of people downtown along with a heavy police presence. Organizers said there were 27,000 registered runners in the marathon and half-marathon.

Runner Fabian Tabares, 49, finished the race for the second year in a row and then heard the news that an armed suspect was arrested only two blocks from the route.

"I'm surprised to hear that but since I'm slow, luckily I was not affected," he said, adding that it was a well-organized event and felt safe. "I'll be back next year to do it again."

The incident began shortly before 11 a.m. as a call about a hit-and-run, officials said. A number of streets were closed after police chased the woman driving a white sedan into the parking structure.

The chief said the wounded officer's gun accidentally discharged and he was struck once in the lower leg. He was expected to fully recover. Officers fired at least two shots at the woman after she pointed the weapon at them, Nisleit said.

Initially, police received calls of an "active shooter" and said that the woman had fired her weapon, but Nisleit did not confirm that during a press briefing.

The race was halted for about 10 minutes and rerouted, marathon officials said.

Marathoner Beth Grew, 40, of Yuma, Arizona, said she had no idea the race was delayed. "Oh my God. That's so scary," she said after finishing and learning about the shooting.

Leilani Sandan and her 7-year-old son were playing music from "Les Miserables" on their way to see the musical at the San Diego Civic Theater when they were suddenly passed by more than a dozen police cars, sirens blaring. The shooting had just occurred in the parking garage they were headed to the nearby theater.

"It was crazy," Sandan said as she stood with hundreds of other ticketholders behind police tape. "It was like police, police, police, siren, siren, siren."

They were later escorted into the theater with the others, who shuffled past the yellow police tape.

Sara Wehr, 31, also was headed to the show with her family.

"It is a little nerve wracking that this just happened not long ago," said Wehr as she lined up next to the flashing police cars. "We're safe, right?"

The 26.2-mile (42.2-kilometer) marathon course weaves its way through the city and also includes a half-marathon and a 5K run.
