Suspect killed after exchanging gunfire with officers near elementary school, police say

Suspect killed after exchanging gunfire with officers near elementary school, police say Police said an officer shot and killed an armed suspect near a southwest Houston elementary school on Monday morning. Houston Police Department Chief Art Acevedo said two officers responded to reports of a man brandishing a weapon at a car wash near the 10700 block of South Gessner in Valley West Elementary School. Officers responded, but the man allegedly refused to comply with their orders. He exchanged gunfire with police before he was shot and killed. The chief said the school was under lockdown for about an hour, but that lockdown has since been lifted.

An Italian man reportedly mistook his father for a wild boar and fatally shot him during a hunting trip in southern Italy over the weekend, an incident that officials have likened to the “Wild West.”

Homeowner shoots and kills 3 masked men in possible 'stand your ground' case A Georgia homeowner is being questioned after killing three masked men around 4 a.m. EST Monday.

The two men were stalking the boar separately in the thick bush of Sicignano degli Alburni, a town outside Salerno, on Sunday, Italian daily Il Piccolo reported.

The younger man, alerted by hunting dogs to a presence in the thick brush, opened fire on a shadow he saw through the bushes, according to authorities’ reconstruction of events. But instead of a boar, he had shot his father in the abdomen.

The 55-year-old later died at a hospital, the Telegraph reported.

The pair were in an area where hunting wild boar is banned, according to local reports. Investigators seized both of their firearms.
