Trump injured and spectator dead after shooting at Pennsylvania rally; shooter is dead

Former President Donald Trump had blood on his ear and pumped his fist as he left the stage. His campaign said he is “fine” and Secret Service said he is “safe
Shots were fired from outside the security perimeter for the venue established by the U.S. Secret Service, three senior law enforcement sources said.


The shooting at the stage took place from a position outside the venue and their security measures, the sources told NBC News.
The assertion could answer a question that quickly emerged following the violence — namely how a gunman got a firearm past security and its gun-detecting magnetometers. In this view, they apparently didn’t.
Vice President Kamala Harris said she and her husband Doug Emhoff were “relieved” that Trump is not seriously injured.


“We are praying for him, his family, and all those who have been injured and impacted by this senseless shooting,” Harris said in a statement.
“Violence such as this has no place in our nation. We must all condemn this abhorrent act and do our part to ensure that it does not lead to more violence,” she said.

A missing 14-year-old American boy has been found safe after he left a cruise ship that docked in Germany and disappeared, authorities said.

Aydin Brown was found unharmed at around 10 p.m. in Brandenburg, a city over two hours away from where he went missing in the port town of Rostock-Warnemünde on Thursday, local police said.

Brown was last seen exiting the Caribbean Princess cruise ship shortly after it docked on July 4 at the port of Warnemünde. Brown was taking the cruise with his grandmother when the pair reportedly got into an argument, which led Brown to leave the ship, police previously said.

Princess previously told Fox News Digital that they were working with local police to find Brown after the teen disembarked “without an escort.”

Concerns grew over Brown’s whereabouts after family members posted on social media that the teen “may have been lured away” in their “worst nightmare” after he left the ship.

Police said investigators picked up the teen’s trail near Potsdam, a city on the border of Berlin, after “intensive investigation” and the evaluation of technical data.

Brown was found in Brandenburg, about an hour west of Berlin. Police said he was unharmed and accompanied by a 19-year-old whom he is believed to have met in Rostock.

At this stage in the investigation, police said there were no indications of a crime.

Brown’s family said in an update on social media that the 14-year-old was found safe, thanking everyone who continued to share updates during the ordeal.

“Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!” Amy Kopischke, a cousin of Brown wrote. “Our Prayers were answered and Aydin was found safe!!”

Family wrote on social media that Brown was reunited with his grandmother and mother, who had flown to Germany after he went missing, later Saturday night.

A 2-year-old boy whose dead body was found in the mouth of an alligator in Florida died of drowning, police announced Monday. The Pinellas Medical Examiner confirmed the cause of death, police said.

Taylen Mosley was found dead in Lake Maggiore in St. Petersburg on March 31. A search for the young boy had begun the day before, when his mother, Pashun Jeffery, 20, was found stabbed to death in her apartment.

The search for led investigators to Dell Holmes Park, adjacent to the lake, after searching local creeks and ponds. There, investigators found an alligator with an object in its mouth and was killed to retrieve Taylen’s body.

Taylen Mosley’s father, Thomas Mosley, 21, was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Taylen and Jeffery.

The missing Florida toddler who was found dead in the mouth of an alligator was put in the lake by his father, who is also accused of killing the child’s mother, according to St. Petersburg police affidavits.

Thomas Mosley, 21, is facing two counts of first-degree murder, according to the affidavits.

“Due to the extremely serious allegations surrounding these tragic losses, our investigation is currently focused on gathering information about the facts and circumstances of the case, as well as our client’s mental state,” a spokesperson for Sixth Judicial Circuit Public Defender Sara Mollo said in a statement.

Mosley allegedly “did throw or place” his 2-year-old son, Taylen, into a lake, inflicting “mortal wounds” that caused the child’s death, according to one of the affidavits.

Taylen had been reported missing after his mother, 20-year-old Pashun Jeffery, was found dead in her apartment Thursday afternoon with multiple stab wounds, police previously said.

The night before Jeffery was found, Mosley allegedly went to his mother’s house with “severe lacerations to both of his hands and arms consistent with injuries caused by slippage during a knife attack” and was admitted to a hospital, according to an affidavit.

Jeffery’s family went to check on her and allegedly saw blood on the sidewalk from her apartment, the affidavit said. They found Jeffery inside dead with “apparent cuts and stabs in excess of 100 wounds,” according to an affidavit.

“A bloody fingerprint on a cleaning bottle which had been intentionally placed under a bed in the crime scene was identified to (Mosley),” the affidavit said. “A bloody shoe print with a ‘Gucci’ emblem was located on the bathroom floor where the victim was found,” the affidavit continues.

The 2 year old was not at the crime scene and authorities launched a search for the boy.

The following day, an alligator was spotted in Dell Homes Park just miles away from where Jeffery was found dead, with an object in its mouth, police said. Officers fired a single round at the reptile and it dropped the object.

Officers were able to retrieve what they discovered to be Taylen’s body, which was intact, according to police. The alligator was euthanized, an affidavit added.

Mosley was booked in the Pinellas County Jail on Friday, according to the website of the sheriff’s office. He is scheduled for a bond hearing on April 11.

CNN reached out to the Office of the State Attorney, who did not offer a comment.

Suspect in deadly Texas Chick-fil-A shooting in US illegally, ICE confirms

0

Authorities say the suspect in a deadly Texas shooting that killed two people inside a fast-food restaurant is in custody, and that he is in the United States illegally.

Oved Bernardo Mendoza Argueta, a 37-year-old citizen of El Salvador, is charged with capital murder of multiple persons after a shooting at a Chick-fil-A in the 5300 block of North MacArthur Boulevard in Irving, police announced.

“We can confirm that the suspect was taken into custody early this morning,” a spokesperson for Irving Police Department told Fox News Digital on Thursday morning, adding that Mendoza Argueta has an “ICE hold,” with the warrant agency being Immigration and Naturalization Service Dallas/Fort Worth.

An ICE spokesperson confirmed to Fox News Digital that the agency’s Enforcement and Removal Operations in Dallas “lodged an immigration detainer with the Irving Police Department on Mendoza.” Such detainers are for noncitizens accused of a crime and who have been apprehended by police.

The shooting happened around 3:40 p.m., according to an arrest warrant that identified one of the victims as Patricia Portillo. The document states Mendoza Argueta is the spouse of a Chick-fil-A employee who was a witness and “identified the defendant with certainty.

Police say the second victim’s name was redacted from the document due to next-of-kin notification needing to be made.

During the manhunt, police released a photograph of Mendoza Argueta alongside a picture of the 1997 Honda 4-door car he was last seen driving.

An official said they believed the shooting was “a targeted incident and that this was not a random act of violence.”

Television footage showed that screens had been placed in front of some of the windows at a Chick-fil-A restaurant, and several police cars were in the parking lot, which was blocked off.

Chick-fil-A did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

New Jersey man killed by lightning strike trying to warn beachgoing kids of impending storm

A New Jersey man died in Seaside Park over the weekend when he was struck by lightning while trying to warn a group of kids about a dangerous thunderstorm.

Patrick Dispoto, 59, made sure his girlfriend, Ruth Fussel, was safe in their car before returning to J Street Beach on the evening, the woman told News 12 New Jersey.

He went back up the dune and onto the sand to warn a group of kids about the incoming storm. No lifeguards were on duty, Fussel told the outlet.

Seaside Park Police told the Asbury Park Press that Dispoto was found unconscious on the beach around 7:38 p.m. CPR was performed on the scene, they said, before he was taken to an area hospital and pronounced dead around 9 p.m.

An autopsy confirmed that Dispoto died an accidental death caused by lightning, News 12 reported.

The beach was closed at the time, Seaside Park Police told the Asbury Park Press, and no one witnessed the fatal lightning strike.

Dispoto’s death comes as the New Jersey borough is poised to upgrade its lightning detection system to warn beachgoers of impending storms, a plan that has been in place for about a year, according to the Asbury Park Press.

“We don’t want to tell people when the storm is here, we want to tell people that the storm is coming so that they can stay ahead of it,” Seaside Park lifeguard captain Jim Rankin told News 12.

“In the event of a thunderstorm, the beach is a very dangerous place to be. So if you feel things like a wind shift, if it’s fluttering back and forth between hot and cold, you see the clouds, you hear little rumbles of thunder — those are signs to get off the beach,” Rankin said.

Since 1959, approximately 86 people have died each year in the U.S. due to lightning strikes, according to the National Weather Service.
