A shocking video shows the moment emergency workers in Florida had to hide from gunfire between a suspect and police.

County Sheriff Tommy Ford said at a news conference in Panama City that sporadic bursts of heavy gunfire had pinned several officers down at times as suspected assailant, Kevin Robert Holroyd, 49, fired from an elevated position with a rifle.

In the video, those gunshots can be heard nearby as members from the Panama City Fire Department and other first responders hide behind vehicles in a parking lot.

A terrified woman filmed the video of the shootout from her apartment.

Eddie Curlin, 29, was sentenced after pleading guilty to malicious destruction of property in 2016-2017

He pleaded guilty April 23 to the three counts of malicious destruction of a building and pleaded no contest to the four counts of identity theft.

Curlin attended EMU from 2014 to early 2016. He was accused of spray painting hate messages on an exterior wall of King Hall in September 2016, on the exterior wall of Ford Hall in October 2016 and in a men’s restroom stall in Sherzer Hall in spring 2017.

The graffiti targeted EMU black community.

Curlin is black.

Police believe he was motivated by hopes of acting as an informant in the case, having previous criminal charges against him dropped and being allowed to return as a student to Eastern Michigan University.

ATLANTA – Dr. Windell Boutte’s website calls her “Atlanta’s most experienced cosmetic surgeon,” but a Channel 2 Action News consumer investigation discovered she also had plenty of experience dealing with malpractice cases.

Boutte refused to answer consumer investigator Jim Strickland’s questions about seven lawsuits against her, and more than 20 YouTube videos featuring the dermatologist dancing and singing around exposed, unmoving patients. Some show Boutte making incisions while she sings and cavorts to the camera.

One of those lawsuits was filed by 26-year-old Ojay Liburd. He agreed to talk to Strickland about his mother’s visit to Boutte’s Gwinnett County office, because his mother no longer can. According to court

WSB-TV records Liburd’s mother, Icilma Cornelius, saw Boutte for a tummy tuck and liposuction in 2016. It was weeks before her wedding and she was credits away from earning her Ph.D. “She just wanted to be perfect for her wedding dress,” Liburd told Strickland. “She had everything going for her.”

She never got the chance to wear her wedding dress. After a more than eight-hour procedure, Cornelius’ heart stopped. She suffered permanent brain damage and will need care for the rest of her life.

A gun-toting 70-year-old grandmother took matters into her own hands early Saturday morning when she shot and wounded an alleged home intruder attempting to break into her Philadelphia residence. Maxine Thompson told Fox 29 she woke up around 4:30 a.m. and heard banging outside her house. Police said a 43-year-old man attempted to break into the grandmother’s Philadelphia home at the time.

“First I thought I was dreaming, and then I looked out the window, outside. I was still hearing the banging, banging, banging, so I yelled to whoever, ‘Who’s that on my door? Get off my door, get off my door,’” Thompson recalled. Despite her warnings, the alleged burglar didn’t stop and continued to smash her dining room window and enter the house. Thompson, going into survival mode, grabbed her late mother’s handgun and shot at the suspect. She told Fox 29 it was her first time using the gun.
,br>“I shot at him. He turned around and he ran and when he ran, I ran down the steps behind him and shot at him some more,” Thompson recalled. “Kill him before he kills me. That’s what was going through my mind.” The alleged burglar was struck while Thompson fired at him several times. He ran to a nearby car wash and called police to report he’d been shot, Fox 29 reported. He was arrested, taken to the hospital and treated for a gunshot wound to his upper arm.

Kentucky police detective assigned to drive a rape victim home in September 2017 is accused of taking her to a hotel and sexually assaulting her instead, prosecutors said.

John W. Nissen, of the Hillview Police Department, was indicted last week on charges of official misconduct, tampering with a witness and theft by deception, according to WLKY in Louisville.

Hillview Police Chief William Mahoney III said in a statement that the indictment stems from a September 2017 incident in which Nissen was indirectly involved. Department officials “became concerned” about the allegations and turned the investigation over to the Kentucky State Police, whose investigators in turn gave their findings to Shelly Alvey, the commonwealth attorney for Bullitt County.

The findings led Alvey to seek and obtain Nissen’s indictment.

Alvey told WLKY that the victim went to Hillview police officers to report she’d been raped by an officer in another Bullitt County department. Detectives interviewed the woman about the allegations.

“(Nissen) agreed to take her home, and the allegation is that when he left the police department, he actually drove her to the home of the alleged perpetrator,” Alvey told the news station.

From there, Nissen and the other officer, whose name has not been made public, took the woman to Wal-Mart, where they pooled their money to buy her a phone, Alvey told The Pioneer News, Bullitt County’s community newspaper.

Dressed in yellow prison jumpsuits and with their hands and ankles shackled, the Dauphin County couple charged with trying to starve their three children to death emerged out of a district court office after having waived their preliminary hearing on Monday.

Dauphin County District Judge Gregory Johnson sent the case against Joshua Ross Weyant, 33, and Brandi Jene Weyant, 38, of Halifax Township, to trial. The two will have their first court appearance in May. They also waived their arraignment hearing, which was scheduled for April.

The parents previously pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, conspiracy, false imprisonment, endangering the welfare of children.

The children were covered in bruises and abrasions when they were discovered and they were living in filth in a locked room.

They had lice and were covered in animal hair along with human urine and feces.

At the time, Pennsylvania prosecutors said the couple no longer wanted to look after the kids so had decided to put them in a room to starve them.

A doctor who examined them said the two oldest children were just days from death when they were saved.

‘They looked like they had walked out of a concentration camp,’ Chief Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Gettle told Penn Live.

They were so thin, doctors could see their bones through their skin.
