(CNN)A former Illinois State trooper was killed and two others were injured when a woman opened fire in a cigar lounge before taking her own life, police say.

The Friday night shooting, which was captured on surveillance footage, appeared to show several people watching television in a media room when the woman sitting behind the victims stands up “without apparent provocation,” the Lisle Police Department said in a news release.
The woman draws a handgun, shoots one victim in the head and then fires several rounds at the other two victims, the department said, before turning the gun on herself.
One of the victims, 51-year-old retired Illinois State Police Trooper Gregory Rieves succumbed to his injuries in a nearby hospital, Illinois State Police said.

Kenya terror attack: Three Americans killed by Al-Shabaab – CNNPolitics

Washington (CNN)Three Americans were killed in Sunday’s terror attack in Kenya.

The Americans — a US service member and two civilian contractors working for the Defense Department — were killed in the attack carried out by Al-Shabaab, US Africa Command, which is responsible for military relations with nations on the continent, confirmed to CNN. Two DOD members wounded in the attack are now in stable condition and are being evacuated, Africa Command said.
The attack occurred at a Kenya Defense Force in Manda Bay, Kenya. Sources have previously told CNN that the base was used by US Special Operations forces working with the Kenyans.
Africa Command said the US uses the airfield for missions such as providing training to African allies, responding to crises and protecting US interests in the region.
The names of those who were killed and wounded have not been released.

As CNN reported earlier Sunday US and Kenyan aircraft, both rotary and fixed-wing, were damaged in the attack, Africa Command now says six contractor-operated civilian aircraft were damaged to some degree.US authorities provided more details about the brazen attack which involved indirect and small arms fire.

They said forces from Kenya Defense forces as well as those from US Africa Command fought back the attack after an initial penetration of the perimeter of the facility.

North Hills Special Response Team And SWAT Officers Respond To Domestic Situation In McCandless – CBS Pittsburgh

According to the McCandless Police Chief Ryan Hawk, the call came in just before 2:30 p.m.

He said a man and a woman got into an argument outside of the home and the man went back into the home.

That’s when Hawk said the woman heard a gunshot and immediately called 9-1-1. McCandless Police and the North Hills Special Response Team arrived at what they believed to be a domestic situation. They treated this as a barricaded situation, not knowing what was happening inside.

When they were able to get into the home, they found the man dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“Deceased since that gunshot was heart,” said Chief Ryan Hawk. “At this time, we can say this was not a situation where anyone was barricaded.”

Man Who Murdered 90-Year-Old Was Walking His Dog, Stole Victim’s Wedding Ring – CBS Pittsburgh

 

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — New details have emerged in the murder of Samuel Rende, including possible motives and bizarre details about the suspect himself.

90-year-old Samuel Rende succumbed to his injuries after being shot in the head by 27-year-old Anthony Miller yesterday. He died at 12:59 p.m. at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital. Medics transported him there from his pickup truck after having been found in critical condition.

Samuel Rende was among those charged in 1981 in the murder-for-hire slaying of Norman McGregor. He pleaded no contest in 1985 to conspiracy.

In a bygone era when guys involved in questionable business dealings sported memorable monikers such as “Egghead,” “Codfish,” “Monster” and “Snooky,” Samuel Rende was just plain Sam.

The 90-year-old Mr. Rende — who was shot to death Saturday near the same Hazelwood streets where he grew up, in what police said was a targeted killing — never had a nickname. He was a man who had long stayed out of the public eye after doing time in the 1980s for his alleged involvement in a murder-for-hire scheme.

Two people are dead and another person is critically injured after a shooting at a church in the Tarrant County city of White Settlement, officials said.

During the incident, two men died from their injuries and another man was critically injured. Fort Worth spokesman Mike Drivdahl said in a news conference that they believe the gunman is among the three but it’s unknown if he was killed or is injured.

“When White Settlement PD and White Settlement Fire Department arrived on scene, they did find a total of three patients that have been transported in critical condition. That includes who they do believe is the shooter, so that is a total of three, including the shooter, who have been transported.”
