12 Year-Old Boy Fatally Shoots Intruder Who Tried to Rob Grandmother, Family Says

Published

on

Late Saturday night, Goldsboro police responded to reports of a shooting that took place in the home of 73-year-old Linda Ellis around 12:34 am.

What We Know:

  • Two assailants forcibly entered the home of Linda Ellis and demanded money before they shot her in the leg. A 12-year-old juvenile described as Ellis’s grandson and family member Randolph Bunn were present inside the house as well. Bunn claims the attackers made him open the door and forced him onto the ground once they were in the house.
  • Unfortunately for the intruders, the juvenile inside the house was prepared and managed to fire back at the burglars. One of them, named Khalil Herring, was hit. Both burglars immediately fled the scene together.
  • Herring, one of the intruders, was sooner than later recovered by police at a nearby intersection suffering from a gunshot wound. At this time, it is unclear whether his partner dumped him or he’d been resting. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was then declared dead. The status of this investigation currently remains open as the whereabouts of Herring’s partner are still unknown.
  • Linda Ellis was taken to Wayne UNC Healthcare, where she remains in stable condition. Her great-niece Chiquita Coley comments that she can’t believe this would happen to Ellis. She continues and states, “I just couldn’t believe she been shot because she’s a good person. Why would somebody come into her house and do this?” An investigation is currently underway, and a motive behind this robbery has yet to be discovered. Any relationships the burglars had with the victims are also unclear as of late.

Goldsboro police assert that there will be no charges filed against the juvenile, whose name remains private.

Lady Gaga Offers $500,000 For Return of Dogs After Thief Steals Them, Shoots Dog Walker

Published

on

Lady Gaga’s dogs were targeted by thieves, leaving 2 dogs missing and her dog walker shot.

What We Know:

  • On Wednesday night, TMZ reports that thieves stole 2 of Lady Gaga’s beloved French Bulldogs. The dog walker, 30-year-old Ryan Fischer, was shot in the chest four times by two men in baseball caps in West Hollywood. Fischer is expected to make a full recovery.
  • Police were able to recover a third dog named Miss Asia, who ran away during the incident. Koji and Gustav, however, are still missing. USA Today reports that surveillance footage from a neighbors house caught the thieves leaving with the dogs in a white vehicle.
  • A source for US Magazine says, “Gaga is beside herself. She is hoping and praying for the safe return of Koji and Gustav and for the speedy recovery of their walker, who is doing as well as can be expected given the circumstances.” As of now, Lady Gaga is desperate to get her pups back, offering a $500,000 reward for their return “no questions asked.”
  • LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division has taken over the case but has yet to determine if the target was specifically on Lady Gaga’s dogs. French Bulldogs are an expensive breed in high demand, so it is possible that the gunmen did not know who the dogs belonged to.
  • The police have identified two potential suspects as Black men between the ages of 20 to 25 years old, one with blond dreadlocks and armed with a semi-automatic handgun.

Lady Gaga is asking that all tips be sent to KojiandGustav@gmail.com.

76-Year Old Man Shoved by Buffalo Police Files Lawsuit

Published

on

76-year-old Martin Gugino filed a lawsuit against the city of Buffalo and members of the city’s police force.

What We Know:

  • During the Black Lives Matter protests on June 4, 2020, Buffalo Police forcefully pushed protestor Martin Gugino in Niagara Square. Niagara Square is famous for being a place for Buffalo citizens to exercise their right to protest. It has been the home of many Presidential visits and civil rights protests.
  • On Monday, the lawsuit was filed stating that Gugino was unlawfully assaulted by Buffalo police. The officers involved in the lawsuit are Officers Robert McCabe, Aaron Torgalski (who were previously suspended), and John Losi. Also included in the lineup are Police Commissioner Byron C. Lockwood and Deputy Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia.   
  • After the incident, the Buffalo Police Department issued a statement saying Gugino “tripped and fell” during a “skirmish”. Shortly after that statement was issued, WBFO tweeted a video that clearly showed Gugino being pushed by Buffalo Police. Several officers walked past Gugino where he lay unconscious and bleeding on the ground. Gugino was treated at Erie County Medical Center for a concussion and fractured skull.
  • The city is also arguing that Gugino broke curfew rules. To protect the protestors, Mayor Byron Brown set a curfew from June 2nd to June 8th during the hours of 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. Buffalo Police Department was “instructed not to unnecessarily detain any person out for a legitimate purpose.” However, protesting crowds were broken up by police despite following the rules. 
  • Militarized officers began marching toward protestors. Out of concern for the other protestors, Gugino walked up to the officers to speak to them. The officers yelled, “push him, push him.” Which resulted in the incident seen in the viral video. 

Martin Gugino was released from the hospital after four weeks and is continuing his recovery.

Bobby Shmurda Released From Prison

Published

on

Ackquille Jean Pollard, known professionally as Bobby Shmurda, was released this week after serving five years in prison.

What We Know:

  • In December 2014, Shmurda was arrested and charged with conspiracy to murder, weapons possession, and reckless endangerment. Shmurda was made eligible for conditional release from Clinton Correctional Facility at 8:30 am Tuesday. Under the terms of his conditional release, Shmurda will serve the remainder of his sentence under community supervision until February 23, 2026. Shmurda was originally sentenced to seven years in prison, but his sentence was reduced to five years after he initially served two years while awaiting a trial date.
  • As far as new music is concerned, Shmurda has assured fans that he will be back in the studio as soon as possible. Fans of the rapper managed to make him certified 5x platinum on the day of his release. Shmurda asserts that he will devote most of his time to music now that he’s out of prison.
  • Shmurda’s welcome home kicked off when rapper Quavo of the group Migos volunteered to be the person to pick him up. “I’m gonna let him show you how I’m gonna pick him up. It’s gonna be big,” Quavo stated. The rapper is, of course, referring to the private plane that he personally picked up and escorted Shmurda home in.
  • It’s unknown if the two artists have plans to do music together, however, Shmurda’s debut studio album is slated to be released soon. The album was originally scheduled to be released in 2016 but was postponed indefinitely after Shmurda’s incarceration. Shmurda previously released an extended play entitled Shmurda, She Wrote on November 10, 2014, one month before his arrest.
  • Shmurda thanked his fans for “remaining loyal” during his time in prison. One of the people Shmurda reacquainted with was longtime accomplice, Rowdy Rebel. Rebel had also been charged in the original investigation and had not seen Shmurda since their arrest.
  • Towards the end of Shmurda’s first day out, friends and family of the rapper gathered together in celebration at a private venue. It was here that Shmurda reunited with his mother, Leslie Pollard. Altogether, it was an intimate and socially distanced dinner.

Fans of Bobby Shmurda cannot wait to experience whatever the rehabilitated rapper has planned for the future of hip-hop music.
