A more than six-hour long standoff involving an angry parent holding a teacher hostage at a California elementary school Tuesday ended with police fatally shooting the suspect.
Riverside Police Public Information Officer Ryan Railsback said the teacher is safe, but they do not have a motive for the suspect’s actions yet. “We’re going to let our detectives figure that out,” he said, adding, “Just like every officer involved shooting we had or every critical incident, they will conduct their investigation.”
Riverside police received a 911 call around 11 am regarding “a disturbance and altercation involving a parent” at Castleview Elementary School, according to a statement. There, officers found Luvelle Kennon, 27, holding hostage Linda Montgomery, 70, who has taught at the school for several decades. It’s unclear if Kennon’s daughter was in Montgomery’s class, local..

The New Orleans Police Department launched an investigation of the shooting of a suspect who killed a police officer early Friday morning in an apparent ambush on the east side of the city.
NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said officer showed great restraint when they arrested the suspect, Darren Bridges, 30, after he gunned down Officer Marcus McNeil, 29, during a police stop.
“We’re proud of our officers,” Harrison said during a press conference Friday. “Our officers demonstrated great restraint, great courage, and great professionalism, even during a time of great mourning and grief.”
Harrison explained the department turned the investigation into the police-involved shooting over to NOPD’s Public Integrity Bureau’s Force Investigation Team, per department protocol.
Harrison was vague in his description about McNeil’s encounter with the suspect, saying..

Las Vegas police and the public in general are struggling to make sense of Sunday night’s mass shooting during a country music concert at the Mandalay Bay casino.
As authorities continue their investigation on gathering basic facts regarding the shooting, they also shift attention toward understanding the motive that drove gunman Stephen Paddock to shoot into a crowd from his hotel room on the 32nd floor and murder a staggering 59 people and injure another 527 others.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo called Paddock a “lone wolf” and said he is solely responsible for the shooting, but exactly why is unclear. Investigators have yet to uncover a manifesto or similar document like other mass shooters left behind, and journalists digging into his past have yet to find details pointing toward what drove him to commit such a heinous act.
What is known, however, is that after Paddock che..

Las Vegas police hosted the fourth press conference on Monday about the ongoing investigation into Sunday night’s mass shooting at Mandalay Bay that left 59 people dead and some 527 more injured.
Clark County Sherif Joe Lombardo said investigators found a total of 16 rifles, which could be described as assault weapons, in calibers ranging from .223 to .308 and a handgun from the gunman’s room on the 32nd floor of the casino’s hotel.
The sheriff clarified that the shooter, Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, had equipped some of the rifles with scopes and modified some of them with full-auto capabilities. “I don’t know if the sear pins have been filed down or whether they’ve been converted to fully automatic,” Lombardo said, adding the ATF is tracing the recovered firearms and should soon complete an evaluation to determine how exactly t..
