    At least 15 people were injured, some critically, when they were shot while attending the funeral of 31-year-old Donnie Weathersby, a recent victim of gun violence himself. In a Wednesday morning update, police said that 10 of the victims were female and five were male. "I saw body after body on the ground," said witness Arnita Jeder. "It's a war out here … Why are they shooting like this? This is ridiculous. Enough is enough." According to reports, victims ranging in ages between 21 and 65 were entering and exiting the Rhodes Funeral Services funeral home when assailants in a...

    A new study breaks down those most vulnerable to firearm violence. Originally published on November 25, 2019 5:03 pm Overall crime in the United States has been declining since the early 1990s. But the same cannot be said for gun violence, which has seen a slight uptick in recent years. A new report from Boston University found that uptick has been led by an increase in homicides of young people — particularly of young black and Hispanic men. Gun Violence Is A ‘Complicated Problem’ Researchers at Boston University, led by Dr. Bindu Kalesan, looked at national gun violence data...

    Police in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue had a chance to get Carlos Daniel Carillo-Lopez, an illegal immigrant, off the streets in March — but a local jail defied a deportation notification request from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and released him into the community. Three weeks later, police say, the 19-year-old Guatemalan, eager to join the violent Surenos street gang, took part in a murder posse that tracked down and slew a teen from a rival gang. Mr. Carillo-Lopez, who came to the U.S. as part of the Unaccompanied Alien Child (UAC) surge, is at the crossroads of the...

    FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Two young men were found dead inside torched cars. Three others died of apparent suicides. Another collapsed on a bus, his death ruled an overdose. Six deaths, all involving men with connections to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, drew attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister was at play. Police say there is no evidence the deaths have anything to do with the protests stemming from a white police officer’s fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and that only two were homicides with no known link to the protests. But some...

    The migrant caravan marching northbound through Central America is an “elaborately planned” movement that’s benefiting human smugglers and bringing disturbing numbers of violent gang members and other criminal elements through Guatemala, according to government sources in the capital city. “MS-13 gang members have been detained and coyotes (human smugglers) are joining the march with clients who pay to get smuggled into the United States,” a Guatemalan official told Judicial Watch. People from Asian countries waiting to get smuggled into the U.S. through Central America are also integrating with poor Hondurans in the caravan, a high-level Guatemalan government source confirmed.

    A Illinois county might create a special task force to protect cemeteries as gangs have taken to opening fire on each other during funerals. Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart proposed creating a special task force Thursday to combat rival gangs trying to shoot each other during funeral services, reported FOX 32. During a talk with various political leaders, religious members and funeral directors, Dart called for a task force made up of the three groups that would try to fix the problem. “This has been something that has been escalating I’d say over the last ten to 15 years from...

    A disturbing incident involving a shooting inside a busy Washington D.C. metro station has received a lot of media attention, but all the reports conspicuously fail to mention if the suspect is an illegal immigrant. A man was captured on camera firing a gun down the escalator of the Columbia Heights Metro station in Northwest Washington in the middle of the afternoon on August 25. He eluded police for days and authorities needed help capturing him so they revealed he had an extensive criminal history and identified him as 22-year-old Cesar Morales, Hispanic with brown eyes, black hair and facial...

    Gaspar Marcos stepped off the 720 bus into early-morning darkness in MacArthur Park after the end of an eight-hour shift of scrubbing dishes in a Westwood restaurant. He walked toward his apartment, past laundromats fortified with iron bars and scrawled with graffiti, shuttered stores that sold knockoffs and a cook staffing a taco cart in eerie desolation. Around 3 a.m., he collapsed into a twin bed in a room he rents from a family. Five hours later, he slid into his desk at Belmont High School, just before the bell rang. The 18-year-old sophomore rubbed his eyes and fixed his...

    There is outrage after Chicago police shot and killed a 16-year-old boy. In Homan Square on Monday night, police pulled over a car that was connected to an earlier shooting. Police say Pierre Loury jumped out and an officer chased him. Police say Loury then pointed a weapon at the officer and that is when he was shot. But a witness claims he saw officers "high five" each other after the teen was gunned down. And now, protesters are demanding justice. A group held a vigil at the scene of the shooting and then marched onto the Eisenhower. Even though...

    Three men have been charged in Georgia after one of them allegedly pulled out a gun and threatened a homeowner over his pro-Donald Trump sign. The homeowner, 42-year-old David Grant, said he posted the Trump for President sign in his yard on Woodland Drive in Dalton to show his support for his favorite presidential candidate. “I’m behind Donald Trump. You mess with Trump, you mess with us,” he told the NBC News-affiliated WRCB. But on Tuesday, the sign sparked an armed standoff that sent three men to jail. Mr. Grant said he was outside when he saw the trio walking...

    It appears that the recent execution-style murder of a Massachusetts man was committed by two Central American teens that came to the U.S. as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) under President Obama's open border free-for-all. Tens of thousands of illegal immigrant minors--mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras--have entered the country through the Mexican border since the influx began in the summer of 2014 and the administration has relocated them nationwide. News reports indicate that the 17-year-olds charged in the gruesome Massachusetts killing entered the U.S. recently as UAC's and both have ties to MS-13, according to authorities cited by various...
