CHICAGO (CBS) — Fourteen people – including three children – were shot during a mass shooting Monday night on the city’s West Side.
The shooting occurred around 9:30 p.m. at California Avenue and Polk Street in Lawndale, police Supt. David Brown said. Fourteen people were shot, and were in various conditions ranging from non-life-threatening to critical.
A 32-year-old woman took herself to Mt. Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound to her leg. She is in good condition.
Brown said the incident was a drive-by shooting that began and ended in about three seconds. A gunman apparently fired randomly into a crowd, Brown said.
A man was hurt Friday after a witness said he tried to stop a motorist from leaving what was described as a road rage incident in a Hempfield shopping plaza, according to court papers.
State police made an arrest within 20 minutes after finding the suspect in Hempfield Plaza along Route 30. Derek R. Walters, 41, of Hempfield, is charged with aggravated assault by vehicle, reckless endangerment and related offenses.
Troopers were called at 10:30 a.m. and found the injured man being treated by Mutual Aid paramedics. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of road rash and a cut on his head, police said.
The man told investigators that Walters tried to pass him on Hempfield Plaza Boulevard, which runs behind Walmart and Sam’s Club, according to court papers. A confrontation between the two motorists ensued nearby in a parking lot and Walters retrieved a tire iron, which police said he used to hit the other man’s vehicle.
The injured man attempted to stop Walters from leaving the scene by holding on to his Jeep Cherokee but was dragged by the SUV as Walters drove away, according to court papers.
Officials say a man and his two dogs were in the apartment when the fire broke out. A Rochester police officer helped the man rescue his pets. They were taken to the humane society and I’m told they’re okay. The man was taken to the hospital for chest pains. @WPXIpic.twitter.com/k7VSHhTJUR
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish authorities on Thursday began investigating the cause of a string of forest fires in Turkey’s Mediterranean and southern Aegean regions, including two near the coastal resort town of Manavgat that killed three people and sent over 50 others to the hospital as homes burned down.
A wildfire that broke out Wednesday in Manavgat, in Antalya province, and was fanned by strong winds and scorching temperatures, was largely contained, Agriculture and Forestry Minister Bekir Pakdemirli said. But another fire that started overnight and swept through the district of Akseki, 50 kilometers (30 miles) north, kept firefighters engaged.
Three people were killed in those fires, and authorities evacuated nearly 20 neighborhoods or villages.
The Antalya region is a popular vacation destination for tourists from Russia and other parts of Europe.
Fires also broke out Thursday in 16 other locations, including in the Icmeler region, close to the resort of Marmaris, 320 kilometers (200 miles) west of Antalya, that briefly threatened holiday homes and hotels. A hotel in the Aegean beach resort of Guvercinlik, near the town of Bodrum, was also evacuated, Pakdemirli said.
Seven people are dead and several more were critically injured when authorities say a sand or dust storm caused visibility issues that led to a series of crashes involving 20 vehicles in Utah Sunday evening.
The crashes happened on I-15 near Kanosh, the Utah Department of Public Service (DPS) said in a news release.
Several people were transported to local hospitals in critical condition, officials said. Authorities did not specify how many people were injured but noted there could be more fatalities.
A house explosion in a Dallas suburb injured at least six people, authorities said Monday.
Plano Fire-Rescue responded to the 4400 block of Cleveland Drive following the blast around 4:45 p.m., a department spokeswoman told Fox News. Three adults and three children were taken to hospitals but the extent of their injuries was not disclosed, Fox-owned station KDFW-TV reported.
The force of the explosion essentially flattened the home and caused significant damage to nearby homes.
Neighbors say it happened during a storm. They saw a flash and heard a loud-shaking boom.
The impact of the explosion felt by people living a mile away. Many walking to the scene were in disbelief.
It’s unclear what caused the explosion. It happened as a thunderstorm moved through the neighborhood.
“I just happened to be looking out my window right as it happened and it was a big flash of bright light,” said Taylor Reddick, who lives nearby. “It had been lightning a lot already, and I just saw a huge black smoke go up and debris go flying in the air. It all happened very fast.”
Plano Fire says only one person was inside the home when it exploded. Most of the injured lived nearby.
Tony Clark says he saw children leaving the neighboring home to get into an ambulance on their own.
“Yeah, I didn’t see any wounds or anything on them. They walked just fine,” he said.
Investigators from the Plano Fire Department, Atmos, Oncor, and the Plano Police Bomb Squad all came out to the scene.
Power and gas were cut off to the block. The Plano Fire Department says it’s standard protocol.

One person died and three people were injured on a water ride at an Iowa amusement park on Saturday. One of the rafts on the Raging River ride at Adventureland Park in Altoona, Iowa flipped, resulting in the fatal accident, CBS News affiliate KCCI reports.
Adventureland Park officials said in a statement to CBS News that the ride remains closed as the investigation continues. “Adventureland is saddened to learn of the passing of one Guest involved in the Raging River accident on the evening of 7/3/21,” officials said in the statement.
Adventureland is working closely with both the State and local authorities on the investigation. “At this time, we ask for your thoughts and prayers for the Guest and their family, as well as for our team members who were on site,” the statement reads.
Adventureland officials said six people were on the raft when the accident occurred.
The ride is located at a remote distance from park entrances, which fire officials said made getting to the incident difficult.
“The farthest units I guess walked 200-300 yards maybe,” said Lance Routson, with the Altoona Fire Department. “The closest (walked) maybe about a hundred. That’s the closest we could actually get an apparatus there, and they would have to walk the rest of the way and carry their equipment and so forth back.”
It first opened in 1983. It was manufactured by Intamin Amusement Rides based out of Switzerland.
Park officials said Raging River underwent inspection Friday before reopening to the public for the first time since 2020.
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — An airstrike hit a busy market in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray village of Togoga on Tuesday and killed at least 51 people, according to health workers who said soldiers blocked medical teams from traveling to the scene.
An official with Tigray’s health bureau told The Associated Press that more than 100 other people were wounded, more than 50 seriously, and at least 33 people were still missing. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns about retaliation.
The alleged airstrike comes amid some of the fiercest fighting in the Tigray region since the conflict began in November as Ethiopian forces supported by those from neighboring Eritrea pursue Tigray’s former leaders. A military spokesman and the spokeswoman for Ethiopia’s prime minister, Billene Seyoum, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The victims — three women and a man — were at a residence in the Englewood neighborhood when the bullets started flying around 5:45 a.m. CT, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said.
All four four were pronounced dead at the scene, a house in the 6200 block of South Morgan Street, Brown said.
Brown released no other details about the four victims or what sparked the latest outbreak of gun violence in the Windy City. He said no arrests have been made and there was no sign of forced entry, but police have found shell casings inside the house and a large-capacity “drum magazine.”
Mayor Lori Lightfoot called the mass shooting “a tragedy that’s ripped apart families and inflicted intense trauma on several individuals.”
“It tells us that we still have much work to do in our mission to end gun violence here in Chicago and in particular, to limit the access of individuals to illegal guns,” Lightfoot said.
