Police investigate after the shootings inside the Southern California Edison office in Irwindale.

December 16, 2011         6:15 pm

The gunman who shot four people — two of them fatally — before killing himself at a Southern California Edison office Friday appeared to target specific victims, a witness said.

The unidentified man, an Edison employee, began shooting after 1:30 p.m. at the sprawling Edison facility at 4910 Rivergrade Road. The witness told the Los Angeles Times that the gunman did not fire randomly.

“He told people to leave and he was very deliberate about who he shot,” said the employee, who spoke on the condition of annoymity. “He did not like management.”

One of the victims died at the scene and the other died on the way to the hospital. The conditions of the two other victims were not immediately available, said Capt. Michael Taylor of the Baldwin Park Police Department, which is helping with the investigation.

Edison International Chief Excutive Theodore F. Craver Jr. said all Southern California Edison buildings immediately were locked down after the shooting. He said the gunman was a Southern California Edison employee and the victims were three employees and a contract worker at the Irwindale information technology facility.

“Our hearts and prayers go out to families of the employees,” Craver said.

He said all but one of the victims in the deadly rampage were men. Craver said the Irwindale office was a secure facility with a special card needed to gain entry. Craver said the company was reaching out to the victims’ families, was trying to comfort employees and was continuing to assist law enforcement agencies.

“It is a very sad day for us,” he said. “… This company has been around for 125 years. It acts like a family.”

Taylor said SWAT officers scoured the building and rescued employees hunkered down in their locked offices. About 1,050 employees work in the three-story building, primarily in the company’s Information Technology and Transmission and Distribution divisions.

A source said the gunman worked at the Edison building as a systems analyst.

At least some of the victims were supervisors at Edison.

One employee told The Times that he and others locked the door to their office and put office equipment in front of it in hopes of preventing the gunman from getting in.

The shooting prompted a lockdown at several nearby schools as officials sought to determine whether the gunman was still alive.

PHOTO: The million-dollar home where John and Geraldine Magee were found slain, victims of an apparently targeted shooting, December 14, 2011.

Dec. 16, 2011

The Boston-area couple that was gunned down in their multi-million dollar mansion was reportedly found lying head-to-head, shot in their necks, with all shell casings cleaned from the scene of the crime, all signs pointing to a well-planned murder.

Police investigating the murder of real-estate developer John “Jack” Magee, 69, and his wife Geraldine, 67, are now calling the crime a double homicide, but refuse to confirm further details in their investigation and are saying only that they have no suspects. An autopsy is now being conducted to find out exactly how the couple died.

Adding to the mystery surrounding their deaths is that the couple’s Lexus SUV was found 25 miles away on Wednesday, having been set ablaze. The vehicle was found in Boston’s North End, in an area known for mob activity.

ABC News has learned that the Magees were found dead Wednesday morning by their daughter and grandchildren. The family members made the grisly discovery on the first floor of the couple’s 6-000 square foot estate as they were bringing the children for a regular Wednesday morning visit.

The front door of the couple’s home was found unlocked with the family dog still inside, according to police, who are reassuring residents that there is no cause for fear after the first murder in the community in more than a decade.

“Jack and Jeri used to be Grandma and Grandpa, and they would babysit on Wednesdays for the kids,” Paul Mercandetti, a friend of the Magees, told ABC News.

Mercandetti, who has known the couple for more than 40 years and was best man at their wedding, told police that he had just eaten dinner with the couple Friday night. He said that he finds it hard to believe they could have been targeted.

“I know a lot of their friends they have, and people they do business with, and there is absolutely no reason at all why this happened,” he said, adding, “Jack is a guy that strives to makes things right and does things properly.”

Mercandetti says the son of the couple, who had two adult children, was in the process of taking over the family’s home construction business, one of the most lucrative development companies in Andover.

Friends and neighbors said that Magee had built most of the houses on his street.

December 12, 2011

The 911 caller reported a robbery in progress early Monday, and the first officers who arrived at the Brooklyn basement apartment found a tenant bloodied from a beating. They had no idea that the robbers were still there, hiding in a dark room behind them.

The robbers, in turn, did not know that backup was on the way, and so when they moved to slip out of the apartment unnoticed, they were met by two more police officers. Everyone was surprised, and in the frame of a darkened door, one robber raised a pistol and fired, striking an officer in the face, the police said.

The officer, Peter J. Figoski, 47, of West Babylon, N.Y., died five hours later at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center. His four daughters had been rushed to his side; two had been hurried aboard police helicopters at colleges in upstate New York.

The police identified the gunman as Lamont Pride, 27, a felon who served a prison term in North Carolina and was wanted by the authorities there for a shooting in August. He was arrested on a drug charge in Brooklyn in November but released.

Officer Figoski served 22 years with the New York Police Department. He was sworn in amid the crack-cocaine epidemic of the late 1980s and early 1990s and witnessed plummeting crime rates. His death at the barrel of a semi-automatic Ruger pistol, the same kind of gun used in the 1993 shootings on the Long Island Rail Road and the sort of firearm that continues to vex the city, served as a reminder of those days, and of the way an officer’s routine shift can end in an instant.

The shooting, the first fatal one in more than four years, revived the familiar mechanics that follow an on-duty death. Some grieving officers — many who did not know Officer Figoski — rushed to the hospital, while others pulled black bunting out from storage at the station house where he had spent his entire career.

Officer Figoski’s partner, Officer Glenn Estrada, had been struggling outside the basement apartment with a second robber when he heard the shot and saw the gunman run, the police said; Officer Estrada chased the gunman on a zigzag sprint of four blocks and arrested him.

The second suspect was still at large several hours later; the police released video footage of him calmly strolling on a nearby sidewalk minutes after the shooting.

The events leading to the shooting began at 2:15 a.m., when the two robbers pounded on the basement door of 25 Pine Street, a two-story home, claiming they were police officers. The owner, who lives upstairs, called 911. Neighbors told the police that both intruders were armed. The area, in Cypress Hills, is known as a relatively quiet pocket of a busy precinct that includes East New York; officers once called the precinct “the killing fields.”

The men entered the apartment, which was narrow and messy. The building’s oil tank, marked with graffiti, was in the hallway, under a bare light bulb. They confronted the tenant, a 25-year-old bodega worker who lived in a cramped bedroom, and demanded money, the police said the tenant had told them. Mr. Pride, wearing a ski mask, forced the tenant to the floor, he told detectives, then pistol-whipped him and took his watch as well as $770 in cash. The police said they were investigating whether the money might have come from drug-dealing.

The robbers moved deeper into the apartment, looking for a way out and finding none, the police said. One of them is believed to have stashed his revolver — an unloaded blackSmith and Wesson that was jammed — in a dirty microwave oven in the kitchen, where officers found it later.

The robbers turned and headed back the way they had come, presumably stepping over the bleeding tenant. He later told the police that he knew the officers were close by when he heard the crackle of their radios. The robbers may have heard them too, and ducked into a dark room with tools and debris close to the front door. A neighbor walked in to care for the wounded tenant.

Two officers entered and saw the neighbor standing over the tenant, and they hurried to them, not knowing whether the neighbor was an attacker. They probably did not even notice the door to the room where the robbers were hiding, the police said.

Backup officers arrived: Officers Figoski and Estrada, who had been partners for several years. Both had been given commendations: Officer Figoski was awarded a medal for recovering a gun during an arrest in a livery cab robbery; Officer Estrada received a congratulatory letter after a driver in a traffic stop offered him $100 to walk away and he arrested the driver on bribery charges.

One of the robbers emerged from the room and ran outside, where Officer Estrada confronted him. They fought in front of the building while Officer Figoski came upon Mr. Pride trying to make his escape. Mr. Pride fired, the police said, and a single round struck Officer Figoski below his left eye; it exited from the back of his head. Officer Figoski left behind a bloody palm print on the wall, perhaps seeking to steady himself as he fell. A small pin with the number 75, for his precinct, fell from his uniform to the ground.

Mr. Pride ran and Officer Estrada chased him, south on Pine and around three corners, before he was apprehended. His gun, which contained 10 bullets but had jammed, was found under a nearby car, near a black ski mask, the police said.

According to a transcript of Mr. Pride’s court hearing after his arrest on a drug charge in November, Justice Evelyn Laporte of Brooklyn Criminal Court was told that there was an active warrant for his arrest in connection with a shooting in North Carolina, but she released him without bail. According to David Bookstaver, a spokesman for the state court system, the warrant appeared to say that North Carolina would not seek his extradition if he were arrested outside that state.

A law enforcement spokeswoman in Greensboro, N.C., disputed that.

“It is our understanding, based on conversations with the district attorney’s office, that we had a warrant with full extradition that was in place at the end of September,” said Susan Danielsen, a spokeswoman for the Greensboro Police Department, adding that a New York police detective had notified the Greensboro police of Mr. Pride’s arrest.

“We had intended to travel to New York to pick him up and bring him back to North Carolina,” Ms. Danielsen said.

The last New York City police officer killed in the line of duty was Alain Schaberger, 42, who died on March 13 when he was pushed over a railing during a domestic violence episode in Brooklyn. The last officer fatally shot in the line of duty was Russel Timoshenko, 23, during a traffic stop in Brooklyn on July 9, 2007.

After Officer Figoski’s shooting, the State Police rushed to his two older daughters, at colleges in Plattsburgh and Oneonta. They were flown in helicopters to Albany. There, they boarded a police airplane to Kennedy International Airport, where officers met them and sped them to the hospital.

Officer Figoski’s younger daughters are in high school. He and their mother are divorced.

The police commissioner, Raymond W. Kelly, and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg praised Officer Figoski’s career, with more than 200 arrests, about half for felonies.

Mr. Bloomberg called the shooting a “horrible, depraved criminal attack.”

Nordine Amrani

13 December 2011          21:52 ET

Police in Belgium are trying to determine what motivated a local man to open fire on a busy marketplace in Liege, killing at least four people.

Nearly 125 people were wounded, some critically, when 33-year-old Nordine Amrani fired bullets and hurled grenades before killing himself.

Police have said he was known to them for previous drugs and firearms offences and acted alone in the attack.

Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo said it had been “an isolated case”.

The city is to hold a minute’s silence and a vigil at midday on Wednesday, the AFP news agency reports.

An 17-month-old girl became the fourth victim late on Tuesday, dying in hospital despite undergoing hours of emergency treatment.

Belgium’s Home Affairs Minister Joelle Milquet said four people remained in a critical condition.

Warnings missed?

The BBC’s Matthew Price in Liege says the central Place Saint-Lambert, where the attack took place, has been re-opened to the public, but blood stains, shattered glass and bullet marks remains.

Officials have ruled out organised political terrorism or a known mental illness as Amrani’s motives but have yet to determine why he opened fire.

Belgium’s King Albert II and Queen Paola paid their respects at the square on Tuesday

They will now need to examine whether there was anything to indicate in advance that he might have posed a danger to the public, says our correspondent.

Amrani, a resident of Liege, had been jailed for 58 months in September 2008 for possessing firearms and drugs, media reports said.

Officials did not confirm this, but said they were aware he had spent some time in prison.

“At no moment in any of the judicial proceedings against him was there a sign of unbalance,” Daniele Reynders, the public prosecutor for Liege, told reporters.

Amrani is reported to have been on parole and on Tuesday, had been asked to attend a police station for an interview in connection with charges against him.

I began to run to get away – for a few seconds I didn’t understand, couldn’t believe, what was happening”

Nicolas Gimenne  Journalist

Instead, he took an assault rifle, revolver and hand grenades into the busy town centre square, close to the courthouse.

At around midday, he threw three grenades at people waiting for buses then opened fire, sending hundreds of people fleeing in panic.

“He wanted to hurt as many people as possible,” journalist Nicolas Gilenne told AFP. “I heard four explosions and shots during about 10 seconds.”

A 15-year-old boy died instantly, while a 17-year-old boy and a 75-year-old woman died later in hospital.

One official told AFP that a Christmas market was meant to be taking place in the square that day but its opening had been postponed because of bad weather.

“Otherwise many more would have died,” said the official.

Amrani died at the scene, but officials said he had not been shot by police. Some witnesses said he had shot himself in the head.

Mr di Rupo, who has only been in office since last week, said there were “no words to describe this tragedy”.

“The whole country shares the pain of the families affected. We share the shock of the population,” he said as he visited the square.

But he said: “This is an isolated case. This is not about terrorism.”

Belgium’s King Albert and Queen Paola II also visited Place Saint-Lambert on Tuesday evening to pay their respects.

Liege’s mayor Willy Demeyer, said the attack had “sown sorrow in the heart of the city”.

Police in Belgium have found a woman’s body in a shed belonging to a gunman who went on the rampage in the centre of Liege on Tuesday.

The body was found with a bullet wound to the head, say Belgian officials.

Nordine Amrani launched his attack with guns and hand grenades in a busy marketplace in Liege, killing three people there and himself.

Police say a 75 year-old woman earlier identified as one of the dead is still alive in hospital.

About 125 people were wounded, five of whom are in intensive care, including the woman.

The body found at the killer’s property was that of a cleaner, reported to be 45 years old, who worked for one of Amrani’s neighbours.

Also found in the shed were two weapons and a stockpile of ammunition, the public prosecutor, Daniele Reynders, told a news conference.

No message has been found from the attacker, she said.

Officials say the shed was used by Amrani to grow cannabis.

The victims

  • 15-year-old boy waiting for a bus who died instantly
  • 17-year-old male, reported to have just finished school exams, who died later in hospital
  • 17-month-old girl, who died overnight despite hours of emergency surgery
  • A cleaner, reported to be 45 years old, who was found shot in the head in Amrani’s shed

The authorities are trying to determine what motivated Amrani, a Belgian citizen, to go on his killing spree.

Police have said he was known to them for previous drugs and firearms offences and acted alone in the attack.

The city is to hold a minute’s silence and a vigil at midday on Wednesday, the AFP news agency reports.

Belgian public prosecutor Daniele Reynders: “Investigators discovered the body of a woman in the shed”

Amrani, a resident of Liege, had spent three years in jail for possessing firearms and drugs, said the prosecutor, Daniele Reynders. He was released in October 2010.

There were no medical reports suggesting any mental health problems, she said.

Amrani was on parole and on Tuesday had been asked to attend a police station for an interview in connection with charges against him.

Instead, he took an assault rifle, revolver and hand grenades into the busy town centre square, close to the courthouse.

At about midday, he threw three grenades at people waiting for buses then opened fire, sending hundreds of people fleeing in panic.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s office has identified the man who shot at motorists in Hollywood Friday morning, wounding one, before he was shot and killed by police.

Tyler Brehm, 26, died near the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Vine Street minutes after wandering up the street firing a handgun.

The incident, filmed by dozens at the busy intersection, brought police officers from across the city and clogged traffic for hours.

A Facebook member by the name of Tyler Brehm is listed as living in Hollywood and being from Carlisle, Penn.

On Tuesday, the site lists him as switching his status from “in a relationship” to “single.”

The Facebook page has a photo album titled “Cali Dreams” apparently of a trip he took to California in 2009. He’d recently changed his hometown to Carlisle and listed his place of residence as Hollywood.

December 8th, 2011

Nearly five years after a massacre at Virginia Tech that was the deadliest ever on a school campus, two men, including a campus police officer, died of gunshot wounds there on Thursday afternoon.

The police officer, Deriek W. Crouse, 39, of Christiansburg, Va., was shot at close range by a man who had walked up to him as he was making a traffic stop in a campus parking lot, the police said.

Officials did not identify the gunman, but in a conference call with reporters on Thursday night, Gov. Bob McDonnell and state police officers said the evidence was strong that he was the second dead man, whose body was found in a parking lot about a quarter-mile away from the traffic stop.

“We have recovered clothing items that would lead us to believe that he would be one and the same,” said Maj. Rick Jenkins, deputy director of the Virginia State Police’s bureau of investigation. But he added, “We are not in a situation to say that definitively at this point.”

The killing of Officer Crouse, an Army veteran with five children, happened around noon and was captured on video by a camera that had been mounted on his car dashboard.

Officials said they believed the gunman had acted alone in killing Officer Crouse.

Capt. George Austin of the state police said the police are still investigating whether the gunman knew Officer Crouse or the person in the car who was stopped. The police said they had been conducting tests of DNA and ballistics at a facility in nearby Roanoke and interviewing witnesses to establish the identity of the gunman.

The shooting dredged up traumatic memories of April 16, 2007, when a student, Seung-Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people before killing himself on the campus, five hours south of Washington in the western mountains of Virginia.

With that experience still vivid, an emergency notification went out on Thursday within minutes, leading to a universitywide lockdown of students and staff in campus buildings, and hundreds of police officers, some wearing body armor and carrying machine guns, hurrying to respond.

“Our hearts are broken again,” said Charles W. Steger, the president of the university.

Governor McDonnell, whose daughter is a graduate student at Virginia Tech and was in lockdown in a campus basement all day, said, “It was honestly very tragic news to receive this afternoon.”

Several Virginia Tech officials rushed back to campus after spending much of the day in Washington where, by coincidence, the university was appealing a $55,000 fine levied by the Department of Education for waiting too long to notify students after the 2007 attack.

Ed Falco, the director of creative writing at Virginia Tech, was among 12 professors locked in his office at Shanks Hall.

Mr. Falco, who was off campus during the 2007 shooting, said he had been at home on Thursday when he received the alert on the campus message system. He said that because previous alerts had been prompted by backfiring trucks and other false alarms, he decided to go to the campus for an appointment.

“I figured this would be the same thing, and came to campus anyway,” he said from inside his office. “I’m fine, but along with everyone else, this brings back very bad memories and bad associations. That this is actually happening is unbelievable.”

Mr. Falco said that there had been a state trooper parked outside the building throughout the afternoon and that the police had been inside to make sure everyone was fine.

“SWAT team called to us from a door, people were running. It was chaos,” said Hannah Nowack, a freshman. “We were herded into an entry to a room with hands on our heads, they searched us all, it was really scary. Then I realized I was in a safe place.”

The shooting occurred about 12:15 p.m., during what was described as a routine traffic stop in a parking lot near McComas Hall, a gym and sports building.

Afterward, witnesses reported seeing the suspect running toward a different parking lot, called the Cage. That is where the police said they found the second body. They said the man had been alive at first sighting and that responding officers had not shot him. A gun was found near the body, and Major Jenkins said they believed it was the same gun seen in the video that was carried by the gunman. The police did not say whether the man had been a student.

Classes were not in session on Thursday because students were preparing for final exams, but there were still thousands of students, staff and faculty members on campus at the time, officials said.

Hayley Bance, a freshman from Richmond, Va., said she was sitting with some friends in a dining area at the Squires Student Center when the building suddenly became a flurry of police activity.

“It was unreal. It just didn’t feel like it was happening on this campus,” Ms. Bance said. “Then we were told to move away from the windows and were taken upstairs. We saw these two police officers with huge guns. Then it started to feel real.”

Erika Meitner, an assistant professor of English at the university, said her 4-year-old son had been among 45 children on lockdown at a campus day care center, not far from where the shooting occurred. After nervously waiting for several hours, Ms. Meitner said her husband had gone to campus to pick up her son when the center began to release children.

She said that even though the shooting had occurred not far from Wallace Hall, where the day care is located, the children had been unaware that anything was amiss because the gunfire had occurred during their nap time.

“It’s closer than you want your child to be to this,” she said.

Anchorage Police Officers search the Millennium Hotel after a fatal shooting at the hotel, Oct. 29, 2011.

October 30th, 2011      08:18 PM

Update: Police  said early this morning that Victor Rodriguez Flores, 45, an ex-employee of the  Millennium Alaskan Hotel, has been charged with first-degree murder. The  shooting victim has been identified as Kerry Fadley, a 55-year-old manager at  the hotel.

Flores had been fired about a week ago, according to a  statement from Police Sgt. Slawomir Markiewicz. Other employees witnessed the  shooting and identified him, he said.


A four-hour manhunt ended late Saturday with the arrest of a suspect in a fatal  shooting at the Millennium Alaskan Hotel in Spenard that caused police to lock  down the hotel and close a section of Spenard Road.

The arrest took place near the suspected shooter’s  residence not far from the hotel at about 10:45 p.m, according to a press  release from the police department. The hotel and Spenard Road were re-opened  shortly afterward.

“It appears to be a workplace violence case,” said  Police Sgt. Slawomir Markiewicz. “An employee of the hotel was shot and killed  by another employee who was (fired).”

Markiewicz said the deceased employee was a supervisor  of the suspect, who had been fired recently.

The shooting was reported just after 6:30 p.m. and  reportedly occurred in an employee area of the hotel. The victim died at the  hotel, police said.

Police were notifying the victim’s next of kin late  Saturday and had not yet released a name.

Police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker said hotel guests  were asked to remain in their quarters and were being evacuated as police  methodically searched the building room by room.

A hotel manager declined to comment.

Adak resident and Millennium guest Esther Bennett  said hotel employees ushered guests out of the lobby.

“They were pushing people out through the bar,”  Bennett said as she stood with two others waiting to get back in shortly after  10 p.m. “They didn’t say anything, I’ve just been sitting out  here listening.”

Bennett said her trip to the city had been OK until  Saturday night. “I’m not coming back anytime soon,” she said.

During the hotel lockdown, Spenard Road was closed  at Wisconsin Street on one end and International Airport Road at the other.

Officers initially surrounded the hotel on Lake  Spenard and were also searching inside the building.

A former Millennium Alaskan Hotel waiter accused of shooting his ex-boss to
death at the Spenard hotel Saturday night was arraigned Sunday. Victor Rodriguez
Flores, 45, has been charged with first-degree murder.

Flores, who had been fired from the hotel at 4800 Spenard Rd. nine days ago,
allegedly killed 55-year-old manager Kerry Fadely at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
APD spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker says Fadely was specifically targeted and that
the attack wasn’t random.

In charging documents Sunday, APD Det. Mark Huelskoetter summarized
witnesses’ accounts of the shooting.

“According to one female employee,
Flores came to the office and asked where Kerry was. That employee told Flores
Kerry would return shortly,” Huelskoetter wrote. “A short time later the same
employee heard Flores swearing at Fadely then say something like, ‘If I’m going
down, then you are all going down.’ Then she heard several gunshots.”

A
maintenance employee of the hotel told detectives he came out of a bathroom and
saw Flores speak with Fadely then hand her a white envelope, but couldn’t hear
what was said.

“Then, Flores pulled out a pistol and asked Fadely, ‘Do
you want some of this?’ and fire two shots,” Huelskoetter wrote. “As the witness
turned to run, he saw Fadely run through the double doors into the kitchen with
Flores right behind her. The witness said he saw Flores fire 3 to 4 more shots
in a downward direction, although he couldn’t see Fadely at that point.”

More than a dozen APD units responded to the hotel at about 6:35 p.m.
Saturday, where officers found Fadely dead. APD’s SWAT team was called to the
scene, sealing the hotel to search for Flores. Other officers in the area
carried automatic weapons and donned ballistic helmets while the search
continued, with hotel guests asked to remain in their rooms and gradually
evacuated as police methodically searched the building room-by-room.

Parker said police also surrounded Flores’ residence in Anchorage, where SWAT
officers took him into custody at about 10:45 p.m. after he had run away from
the hotel.

APD Sgt. Aaron Whitt said officers were called in from Eagle River to help
answer calls related to Saturday’s search, as part of one of the biggest police
responses Whitt has ever seen.

At Flores’ arraignment Sunday, he told the
judge he used to make between $50,000 and $60,000 per year. The court is
considering whether to appoint a public defender for Flores, because he has no
support from family or a marriage — and is now unemployed.

In an interview after Flores’ arraignment Deborah Harris, Fadely’s partner of
14 years, said she couldn’t explain Saturday’s shooting.

“I don’t know how that happens,” Harris said, crying as she spoke. “You know,
I saw her two hours before she goes to work, she just went to work — this is
irrational that we get to this point.”

She had particularly harsh words for Flores.

“Do you wake up in the morning and go, ‘I’m going to kill my ex-boss ‘cause
she fired me?’” Harris asked. “Like, really, is that what we do? Is that how bad
we are? That’s — come on.”

his path of destiny = Tragedy.

—————————————————————————————–

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the 4th, 5th, and 6th letters of the name.

Victor Rodriguez Flores

20 (t is the 20th letter of the alphabet) + 15 (o is the 15th letter of the alphabet) + 18 (r is the 18th letter of the alphabet) = 53

So the number 53 ruled his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four.

53 = Arguing.  Combative.
