    A mysterious series of apparently random killings in Kansas City, mostly committed in isolated spots along walking trails, came to an end when the killer deviated from his pattern with a brazen, execution-style shooting in broad daylight on a city street, according to Jackson County prosecutors. The fifth and final killing came shortly after noon on Aug. 13, when 22-year-old Fredrick Demond Scott allegedly followed a man from a city bus, crept up behind him on the street and shot him in the head — before turning and getting right back on a bus. Like the other four victims Scott...

    DALLAS - A hearing impaired woman was sucker punched in broad daylight while waiting for a bus stop in Dallas. 56-year-old Cindy Tarkington says she was waiting for the bus when a stranger walked right up to her and hit her without warning. The unprovoked attack happened last Wednesday on South Polk Street near Nokomis Avenue in the Oak Cliff area. Joe, Cindy’s husband, recalled walking his wife, who is nearly deaf, to the DART bus stop. It was around 11:30 a.m. so Cindy felt safe waiting for the bus by herself. But a few minutes later, she was sucker...
