‘VIOLENT JIHAD’
In one of his earliest posts, he suggested that “America needs another Vegas event,” an apparent reference to the 2017 mass shooting at a ]country music concert in Las Vegas where a lone gunman perched in a nearby hotel killed 58 people and wounded hundreds, the complaint alleged.

Domingo, who said he wanted to become a martyr, also made reference to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, according to the complaint. During one meeting in person with an FBI operative, he arrived carrying an AK 47-style assault rifle, telling the informant: “I just wanted to show you that I’m serious.”

According to a law enforcement database, Domingo is the registered owner of three semi-automatic rifles. An FBI spokeswoman said received a less-than-honorable discharge from the Army.

Prosecutors say Domingo contemplated drive-by shootings and detonating a bomb at the Santa Monica pier before deciding to bomb a rally scheduled for Sunday, April 28, in the Los Angeles suburb of Long Beach that he believed was organized by white nationalists.

Domingo and two FBI informants
visited the planned site of the rally to scout the best location to place explosives to cause the greatest casualties, authorities said, agreeing that they would leave the scene separately to throw off suspicion. He as arrested shortly after placing one of the mock bombs into the vehicle of an informant

The announcement of Domingo’s arrest came two days after a gunman opened fire in a San Diego-area synagogue, killing one woman and wounding three others, including the rabbi. John Earnest, 19, was arrested.
There was no indication the two incidents were connected.

2 killed, 4 injured in University of North Carolina shooting on last day of classes
Two people have been killed and at least four injured in a shooting at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Police reportedly have one male suspect in custody.

Shots were fired near the Kennedy building on the UNCC campus on Tuesday afternoon around 4:40pm and the campus was temporarily locked down in response, with the school issuing an alert advising students to remain in a safe location. As police swept the remaining buildings on the campus, students were released to reunite with parents or family members at a designated location.

Numerous emergency vehicles responded to the scene.
Two patients were dead on arrival and three more were in critical condition, according to police. Six victims in total were taken to to area hospitals.

Videos retweeted by local media show students running and walking away from the building where the shooting occurred and police running toward the building, as well as a high concentration of emergency vehicles, including helicopters flying overhead.

https://emergency.uncc.edu/ said:
⚠ NinerAlert: The campus remains on lockdown while police clear each building. This could take several more hours. Check email for more details.
Last year, a UNCC student was arrested and committed to a hospital after telling a doctor that he “could not wait to buy a gun and shoot the university up” and discussing an “explicit detailed plan…about killing and harming [UNCC] students and staff,” according to campus police. A search of his room turned up a copy of the school’s emergency response guide, with the section on dealing with active shooters attached to the wall – but no weapons. The student was banned from entering the campus.

8 injured, 2 arrested in Colorado school shooting
At least eight people were injured in a shooting at a charter school in Highland Ranch, Colorado, a suburb of Denver. Two suspects have been arrested.

Multiple people were shot at STEM School Highlands Ranch on Tuesday afternoon just before 2pm local time. Four victims are in serious condition, one is in fair condition, one is in good condition, and two are stable, according to Denver's KGMH-TV, which reports the victims were taken to three different hospitals.

Two suspects believed to be juveniles are in custody, though it is not known whether they are students. While police are still searching the school classroom by classroom, there is no longer believed to be a third suspect, according to Douglas County Undersherriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth. A lockout of all Douglas County schools has been lifted, but after-school activities have been canceled for the entire district.

:whistle:
The second suspect was not named, but The Denver Channel wrote that multiple sources say “the second suspect, who is a minor, is a transgender male who was in the midst of transitioning from female to male.” The motive, the station alleges, “went beyond bullying and involved revenge and anger towards others at the school,” adding that one suspect “was involved in legal and illegal drug use and had been in therapy.”


On social media, Devon Erickson, a registered Democrat, expressed hatred for some Christians, and shared posts criticizing Donald Trump and praising Barack Obama, which you can see later in this article. ( John Fenton News Producer @CBSDenver and a pretty righteous dude overall)

What do we know about the madman?

The kidnapper, a young man of "almost 18 years, was unfavorably known for cases of violence, including the police, theft, but also for his participation in December in a demonstration of yellow vests, where he had been arrested, "said the Toulouse prosecutor, Dominique Alzeari. "It was also not classified as dangerous," he added.

He left at his home "a mail, where he seems quite depressed
, or at least concerned about his state of health, and he refers to the movement of the yellow vests but ensuring that the act he wanted to commit n 'would not go beyond this approach finally a little spectacular,' according to the prosecutor.

The terrorist track was quickly dismissed by the investigators
. "But we are necessarily worried when we have a young man very determined and armed," according to the prosecutor. The suspect fired twice in the air at the beginning of the hostage crisis, according to a source close to the file. He "reportedly said that if the police intervened he would shoot at the police," she added.

I don't approve of ordering the children to raise their hands to their heads, either. I feel - it makes them "an easier target" if one of the shooters is still in the building, as the kids walk single file outside? Psychologically, the authorities just made each one of those kids - a victim? It's all needless trauma and emotional distress on the child's part. If one of those students were my child, I'd be on the phone demanding an immediate School Board meeting and starting a Petition for interested Parent's to sign! It's a school/educational facility - not a Federal Corrections re-education prison!

A shooting at a crowd leaves one dead and three wounded in Mexico while interviewing an official --Spanish
In the middle of a merchant demonstration, an unidentified aggressor shot into the crowd and was later arrested.

One dead and three wounded was the result of a shoot-out in the center of Cuernavaca, in the state of Morelos (Mexico), when a state official was interviewed by the media.

An unidentified subject shot into the crowd just as some reporters were interviewing the head of the Social Development Secretariat of the Government of Morelos, Gilberto Alcalá Pineda, in downtown Cuernavaca, at around 10:15 a.m. (local) on May 8.

The interview took place in the middle of a protest by merchants.

After the aggression, four people were reported injured by gunshot wounds. Among them were three shopkeepers and a journalist.

The wounded merchants were identified as Jesús García, Roberto Castrejón and another person whose name is unknown. The injured reporter is René Pérez.

Minutes later, businessman Jesús García died after being shot, according to the Morelos Prosecutor's Office.



Subsequently, elements of the Mexican Army and the Attorney General's Office (FGE) arrived in the area to conduct the corresponding inquiries.

The authorities are still investigating whether there was a second shooter involved in the events.

Re-runs work wounders. Stay tuned.

Survivors of a Colorado school shooting walked out of vigil for their slain classmate on Wednesday night in protest of politicians and other groups using it as a platform for gun control, a local report said.

The students from STEM High School, where two gunman killed a student and wounded eight others on Tuesday, began yelling from the stands that they “wanted to be heard” after two politicians and pro-gun control advocates addressed the crowd, according to the local NBC affiliate, KUSA.

They then stormed out of the vigil after Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and Democratic Congressman Jason Crow addressed the crowd, The Denver Post reported.

The kids chanted “mental health” and hurled expletives at the media, according to the report.

The students returned, and some of them took the microphone, saying their grief being used for political purposes.

“What has happened at STEM is awful. But it’s not a statistic. We can’t be used as a reason for gun control. We are people not a statement,” one student said, according to video by KUSA.

“We wanted Kendrick to be mourned. We wanted all of you to join us in that mourning, but that was not allowed here. We all walked out. We were not kicked out,” another student added.

The vigil was organized by Team Enough, the student branch of gun-control group the Brady Campaign.

Hostage-taking #Blagnac: the strange tale of Yanis, the "soldier of the yellow vests" [VIDEO] Prise d'otages de Blagnac : l'étrange récit de Yanis, le «soldat des Gilets jaunes»
Snip:
" Non violent "

Calm, precise but sometimes having trouble answering all the questions, he would have reaffirmed to have been recruited by "an armed militia to become a soldier of the Yellow Vests". His passage to the act is a real underground crime.

A story above ground, even wacky,
which is difficult to perceive a bit of logic. Already arrested last December in a demonstration of Vests yellow, Toulouse, he would have met individuals believing that the barbeques around the roundabouts were not effective enough.

This obscure militia would have allowed him to perform several weeks of military preparation to plan other actions. At the end of this "training", the "leaders" of this secret organization, of which he can not specify who it is, would have handed him the handgun used for the taking of hostages. According to him, there were also ammunition that he removed from the magazine.

"Make a hit"

Still according to his statements, he opted to "make a coup", in a tobacco shop, instead of a service station, previously chosen in Blagnac by members of the militia. Reaffirming his non-violent nature, he did not want to hurt anyone.

Thus Yanis, recruited in the service of a dark radicalized organization forming soldiers near a park, and militant "for a more just state", arrives on his foldable electric bicycle in front of the tobacco shop, Place du Plan -du-Port, Tuesday, May 7, around 16 hours. He parks his two-wheelers and enters the sign with his alarm gun evacuating customers. He sequestered four women, including the boss and her daughter. He is polite, caring and does not use any physical violence. But Yanis has another obsession: to talk about him and intervene in a major media to make the militia known to the general public. He films live the hostage taking with an apparatus around his neck that he eventually destroys.

At least 11 people were killed and six hospitalized with various injuries after a gunman opened fire at people at a municipal center in Virginia Beach (Virginia), on Friday, the city’s police chief James Cervera said at a news conference aired by CNN and other leading TV channels.

"Right now I can tell you we have multiple casualties and multiple fatalities. We have 11 deceased victims, they are at the scene. We had six more victims who were transported to area hospitals. I do not have the condition of those victims at this particular time," he said.

"We do know that shortly after 4:00 p.m. this afternoon the suspect entered a building two. He's a longtime employee of public utilities. I will not release his name at this time and he immediately began to indiscriminately fire upon all the victims," the police chief continued.

"Officers entered, once the call went out the officers were at headquarters. They responded to building two, they secured as much of the victims as they could and then they engage with the suspect," Cervera said. "The suspect did shoot a police officer. Officers returned fire, suspect is deceased."

According to the official, the officer, who was shot, was saved by his bulletproof vest.

CNN quoted police sources as saying that a pistol and a rifle were found at the scene. The guns were purchased legally.

The White House press service said US President Donald Trump was informed about the tragedy.

Virginia Beach gunman who killed 12 was disgruntled city engineer
Virginia Beach gunman who killed 12 was disgruntled city engineer

The gunman who killed 12 people at a Virginia Beach municipal building before dying in a shootout with police was identified on Saturday as a disgruntled city engineer and co-worker of most of the victims.

All but one of the victims from Friday's mass shooting in the coastal resort community were employed by the city, officials said, while the other was a contractor seeking a permit. Four people were wounded.

The gunman, DeWayne Craddock, had worked for the city's public utilities department for about 15 years, Virginia Beach Police Chief James Cervera said at a news conference. He declined to comment on any possible motive.

Police said the gunman was armed with two .45 caliber pistols and used an employee pass to enter secure areas before firing "immediately and indiscriminately" on victims while reloading with multiple extended ammunition magazines.
