The Standoff Lasted Nearly Seven Hours, Police Said

A SUSPECT is said to have killed two people before stabbing his mother and dropping a baby from a window during an hour-long barricade and standoff, police officers and neighbors say.

Police arrived at the Michigan home around 8 p.m. following the domestic violence call.

As they approached the home, officers said the suspect shot them, according to FOX2 News.

The standoff ensued and lasted almost seven hours.

Neighbors claim that during this time, Welch dropped his baby from one of the house’s windows.

“He leaned out the window and dropped the baby on the grass,” a neighbor told Click on Detroit.

“The baby was naked – while the house was burning. It all happened while the house was burning.”

The police saw the child and removed him from the scene.

When officers entered the home nearly seven hours after Welch surrendered, they found that a fire had also been set in the home.

The bodies of the two victims were recovered by police after the fire was extinguished.

Zlayiah Frazier, 22, and Robert Bray Jr., 70, have been identified as the two victims who died from blunt force trauma, police officers told Click on Detroit.

Frazier was an ex-girlfriend of Welch’s, her sister Breonna told FOX2 News.

Bray was Welch’s stepfather, officials told Click on Detroit.

A third victim, Welch’s mother, was injured in the attack and ran to a neighbor’s house after allegedly being stabbed by her son.

There was no news on the condition of Welch’s mother or child.

The suspect was out on bail following an alleged assault on Frazier last month, court records show.

The Wayne County Attorney’s Office issued a statement June 12 saying Welch has received a handful of charges, including first-degree home invasion, third-degree criminal sexual conduct, and assault with intent to commit penetration.

Welch bailed on July 8 and was released from the Wayne County Jail.

Frazier’s family insisted to FOX2 News that the legal system is “definitely broken.”

“You should never have let him out of jail,” Breonna said.

The US Sun has reached out to Harper Woods, Michigan police for further comment.

Juveniles arrested for violent crimes ‘more common than you might think’, says San Francisco lawyer

Juveniles Arrested For Violent Crimes 'More Common Than You Might Think', Says San Francisco Lawyer

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — There are new details about the minors arrested in connection with the robbery and assault of a 70-year-old San Francisco woman. Police have identified four suspects but confirm that one of the minors is still at large.

The four suspects have been identified as Darryl Moore, 18, of Oakland, 14, 13 and 11.

“The fact that we are here in front of you talking about 14, 13 and 11 year olds who are committing violent robberies, I hope it shocks everyone’s conscience,” said San Francisco’s police chief. Francisco, Bill Scott.

This begs the question – is it common?

“It’s more common than the public wants to know,” said criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor Marc Pelta. “Certainly, more common than you think.”

Pelta has presided over hundreds of juvenile cases in the Bay Area over the past decade.

“I’ve met 11, 12, 13-year-old minors, often it’s unique to the minor how young they look in court,” Pelta said. “Unfortunately, this happens more often than the public realizes.”

SFPD confirmed to I-Team that they are still looking for the 14-year-old suspect, the 13-year-old is still in Alameda County awaiting transfer to San Francisco, and the 11-year-old was released in an adult.

“We’re going to take it from here,” San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins said at a Monday news conference.

EXCLUSIVE: Brutally beaten 70-year-old woman hit in the head by 4 attackers at SF housing complex

In 2018, Senate Bill 439 was signed into law, which essentially removed the discretion of DAs to charge children under 12.

“With the 11-year-old, it’s going to be a community issue because he’s too young to be charged with a crime,” Jenkins said.

Daniel Macallair, executive director of the San Francisco-based Center for Juvenile and Criminal Justice, told ABC7 that this case involving an 11-year-old child is extremely rare.

“Cases like this are not common,” Macallair explained.

So what happens to him?

“He won’t be on his own, someone will respond,” Macallair said, adding that each case is handled individually and often reviews the circumstances at the child’s home.

“First of all, you have to ask him what the situation is at home? If he is caring for older children who also have problems, that is also a signal that there is turbulence at home. home and in the neighborhood. And you design your response strategies accordingly,” Macallair said.

According to Pelta, California, the goal of the Welfare and Institutions Code is rehabilitation first and punishment second.

“In these types of cases, especially involving such young minors, the chances of reoffending are very high,” Pelta said.

According to a 2017 report from the California Division of Juvenile Justice, 74.2% of youths were re-arrested, 53.8% were reconvicted for new offenses and 37.3% were re-incarcerated in the three years after their release.

Stephanie: “What do you often see happen with juveniles this young?”

Pelta: “In these cases, it would routinely involve one of two options…one would be to send the minor to a camp, a locked down facility outside of the county where support services can be provided to young people. And the court monitors the minor’s progress over time to see if the minor can return home.”

An example of this is institutions like the Boys Republic in Chino Hills, California, which work to support troubled teens. It is unclear what the outcome will be for any of the minors in this case.

The ABC7 News I-Team has contacted the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office to see if an assessment of juvenile homes will take place.

Mets fans, it’s time for Brett Baty

Mets Fans, It’s Time For Brett Baty

ATLANTA — The day has finally come.

It didn’t happen earlier in the season as Dom Smith and J.D. Davis failed to make much of an impact at the designated hitter spot, and it didn’t happen at the trade deadline, when the Mets’ front office pilfered Daniel Vogelbach and Darin Ruf instead of promoting someone in-house.

That long-awaited promotion is upon us now, as the Mets are calling up 2019 first-round pick Brett Baty, per reports. Both general manager Billy Eppler and manager Buck Showalter had insisted that Baty would not be part of the picture anytime soon — Showalter as recently as Monday — but injuries forced their hand. Infielders Luis Guillorme (groin strain) and Eduardo Escobar (oblique strain) both suffered injuries within the last seven days, and Guillorme’s was severe enough to put him on the injured list. A groin malady of that caliber, per the Mets, could cause Guillorme to miss up to six weeks. Baty has dabbled in left field during his minor league career but is primarily a third baseman.

Baty was the 12th overall pick in his draft year and is the Mets’ second-ranked prospect according to MLB.com, behind only catcher prodigy Francisco Alvarez. He is the 18th-best prospect in the world according to the same rankings. While his call up isn’t official yet, Baty’s social media would seem to indicate that someone has broken the news to him already. His official Twitter account has liked several posts congratulating him on ascending to the big leagues. He is expected to be activated for Wednesday’s game in Atlanta, with a trip to the IL perhaps coming for Escobar.

Now being asked to contribute to a first-place team, and one that’s weathering its first troubling storm of the season, Baty is still just 22 years old. He has, though, been one of the best hitters at any level of the minor leagues this season. He started his year with the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies and lived up to the team’s fearsome name. Baty played 89 games at Double-A and made 394 plate appearances. Over 11% of those resulted in a walk and over 40% of them ended with Baty getting on-base. His .312/.406/.544 slash line for the Ponies makes it clear why he was shuttled along to Triple-A Syracuse.

In a microscopic, six-game sample at Syracuse, Baty went 8-for-22 (.364) and drew three walks while striking out six times. He did not play in Syracuse’s Tuesday night game in Charlotte, which is a quick and easy commute to Atlanta. All eight of his Triple-A hits were singles. It’s Baty’s raw power, though, that the Mets hope will carry him to a prolific MLB career. His 19 home runs in 89 games at Double-A showed that the left-handed hitter was perhaps more ready for the big time than his organization initially expected.

On a Zoom call discussing the trade deadline, during which he did not ship out any of the Mets’ top prospects, Eppler said, “Once you have success at Double-A, you kind of physically know you’re able to play in the major leagues.” Triple-A, then, is often used as a final polishing stage, one where young hitters can be exposed to several pitchers who have already pitched in the major leagues. If Double-A is the physical test, Triple-A is the mental one. Baty had an extremely limited look at Triple-A pitchers, but there’s no time for the Mets to gripe about that now.

Somebody has to play third base, and with all due respect to Deven Marrero, the 31-year-old who is fairly fresh out of an independent league, he is not the man for the job. Baty might not be either, at least right now, but the club has the luxury of knowing his performance won’t be the difference between making and missing the playoffs. The Mets have put themselves in an enviable position of power. They still lead the National League East by 3.5 games entering Wednesday night’s contest, own the second-best record in the majors and have a 100% chance of making the postseason according to FanGraphs’ playoff odds.

The games where they have to start Baty at third base could be the difference between winning and losing the division, though. With MLB’s new playoff format, winning the division and securing a top-two seed in the NL could prove very important, as the two division winners with the best record get a bye and avoid a wonky three-game Wild Card series. Taking the NL East will secure one of those top two seeds — the NL Central winner, barring a miracle, won’t have enough wins for it — but Atlanta is not just going to roll over and die.

Essentially, this is as real deal as it gets for Baty. He won’t have the agonizing bus rides, cramped clubhouses or cheap hotel rooms of the minor leagues anymore, but he also won’t have the comfort of being one of the best players on the field each time he goes out. The Mets have also called up a 22-year-old in the heat of a pennant race before, and you best believe Baty will be compared to him incessantly in the coming days.

Michael Conforto played a Double-A game on July 23, 2015. The very next day, he was at Citi Field, starting in left field for a team that would eventually play in the World Series. Most Mets fans can tell you exactly what Conforto did once he got there. Strapped with a left-handed swing of his own, fresh off demolishing Double-A just like Conforto did, a similar boost from Baty would immediately make him an unforgettable figure in Mets lore.

The Mets now find themselves in an interesting spot. They didn’t want to have to use Baty at the MLB level this early, but with the hard-charging Braves not relenting, the team’s brain trust wasn’t left with much of a choice. At worst, Baty struggles but has a useful trial by fire that can teach him some things about The Show.

At best, the Mets just accidentally unlocked the best third baseman they’ve had all year.

Christian Mccaffrey Knocked To Ground, Fan Injured In Fight At Joint Carolina Panthers And New England Patriots Practice

Carolina Panthers star running back Christian McCaffrey was involved in a fight Wednesday during joint practice with the New England Patriots that injured a fan.

McCaffrey, who was out of bounds, was knocked to the ground by Patriots defensive lineman Deatrich Wise Jr., who landed on the fan during the ensuing scrimmage. McCaffrey responded by throwing the ball at Wise’s feet, sparking the fight which continued in the stands.

The woman suffered a swollen foot but refused treatment from Patriots medical staff.

The 6-foot-5, 275-pound Wise reached out to the fan to apologize, and McCaffrey shook his hand as well. The Patriots offered him tickets to one game this season.

It was the second day in a row that the Panthers-Patriots joint workouts featured an altercation. Wise was ejected from practice Wednesday with Panthers backup running back Chuba Hubbard and cornerback Kenny Robinson, who was also ejected for fighting on Tuesday.

ESPN’s David Newton and Mike Reiss contributed to this report.

As losses pile up, Yankees say losing-streak will be good for them

As Losses Pile Up, Yankees Say Losing-Streak Will Be Good For Them

The Yankees walked off the field Tuesday night to some surprisingly loud boos. The Bombers have lost 11 of their last 13 games, scored one run over their last three games and watched their once double-digit lead in the division shrink. So the boos were only surprising in how loud they were. Most fans turned their backs Tuesday night and walked out long before Frank Sinatra began to sing.

But inside the clubhouse there is a firm belief that everything is going to be all right.

“A little adversity never hurt nobody,” catcher Jose Trevino said. “Everybody is going to struggle. You look at (the standings) right now, we’re still a few games up and we know that, but we also know we want to kick it into gear pretty soon.”

It’s been a two-week funk that may not have cost the Yankees the American League East lead, but has cost them the best record in the AL, which they said was hugely important following a two-game series loss to the Astros. The Yankees are 2.5 games behind Houston now.

Aaron Judge hopes this is one of those trials in the season that will pay off in the end.

“You learn to respond to getting hit in the face a couple of times,” Judge said. “It’s going to be good for us. You can’t have the good without the bad, so it’s good for everyone to kind of go through this stretch and kind of look themselves in the mirror and say, ‘Hey, what do I need to do to get better so we can kind of get out of this rut?’”

Wednesday morning it looked like a little foster shakeup was what the Bombers were hoping would get them out of a rut. Aaron Boone said they were discussing roster moves Tuesday night. The team declined to give further information.

Prospect Oswaldo Cabrera announced on his Instagram late Tuesday “Vamanos,” which hinted he may be coming to the Bronx from Triple-A Scranton. Estevan Florial was also mentioned as a possible addition.

While the team declined to comment, struggling closer Clay Holmes basically admitted he was heading to the injured list with a back issue after Tuesday night’s loss. That would allow Ron Marinaccio, who had been dominant before being demoted because of a roster numbers crunch, to come back and give the bullpen a boost.

Trump-backed Senator Lisa Murkowski and Kelly Tshibaka advance to general election in Alaska Senate race

Trump-Backed Senator Lisa Murkowski And Kelly Tshibaka Advance To General Election In Alaska Senate Race

Senator Lisa Murkowski and Kelly Tshibaka — Republican rivals locked in one of former President Donald Trump’s grudge matches — will qualify for the general election in the Alaska Senate race, NBC News projects.

Their top spot in Tuesday’s coverage, the nonpartisan primary secures them two of four spots in a November contest that will be decided by ballot-by-choice, a system that allows voters to rank candidates in order of preference.

Patricia Chesbro, a Democrat, will also advance NBC News projects.

NBC News is not yet projecting the winner of the fourth ballot in the general election.

Incumbent Murkowski drew Trump’s ire when she voted to convict him in his second impeachment trial, believing he instigated the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. Trump endorsed Tshibaka, a former commissioner of the Alaska Department of Administration.

Trump used to call Murkowski the “Alaska disaster.” In his June 2021 endorsement — 14 months before the primary — he promoted Tshibaka as “the candidate who can beat Murkowski” and “a fighter who represents Alaskan values ​​and America first.”

Tshibaka made waves as she vowed not to back another Trump foil, Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., for another term as GOP leader in the Senate if elected. Murkowski, meanwhile, has proven herself to be a moderate willing to work with Democrats. She was one of only three Republicans to vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson in April.

The new voting format could help Murkowski. Proponents of ranked choice, which was used most notably in New York’s mayoral election last year, believe the setup benefits moderate candidates who don’t play on the fringe of either side. parties and work the hardest to please the widest group of people.

In preferential choice elections, voters identify a first choice on their ballot and then rank the other candidates in order of preference. If no candidate receives a majority of first-choice votes on the first count, the election proceeds to an instant second round. The candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated and the ballots cast for that candidate are recast for the voter’s second choice. The process repeats until one candidate reaches a majority.
