The shooting broke out just before 8 p.m. on Saturday in an unincorporated area about nine miles outside Union, South Carolina, after the Union County Sheriff's Department responded to a complaint of vehicles blocking a roadway, Major Scott Coffer told ABC News on Sunday.

    Washington epidemiologists have admitted that multiple victims of gunshot wounds who had also been diagnosed with coronavirus have been counted as COVID-19 deaths, although they say deaths from the virus are still likely being undercounted in the state. Epidemiologists with the Washington State Department of Health said that the "number of nuances" in coronavirus data makes it difficult to render a quick assessment in the cause of death. The state is currently counting anyone that dies with COVID-19 in its death toll. "We currently do have some deaths that are being reported that are clearly from other causes. We have...

    The two men who allegedly tracked, stopped, and killed Arbery were identified by the Police as being Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son, Travis McMichael, 34. The two claim there were several break-ins in the area and pursued Arbery to investigate if he was the perpetrator. Listen to me when I say this: You will see that this was murder. After watching the video multiple times, in my mind, the only conclusion is that these men saw a black man running through their neighborhood and immediately thought he was up to no good and murdered him. Whether this murder was...

    A Maryland man who was shot and killed by a police officer was asleep in his bedroom when police opened fire from outside his house, an attorney for the 21-year-old man’s family said on Friday. The man’s girlfriend was also wounded. The Montgomery county police department said in a news release Duncan Socrates Lemp “confronted” police and was shot by one of the officers early on Thursday. But Rene Sandler, an attorney for Lemp’s relatives, said an eyewitness gave a “completely contrary” account of the shooting. She said police could have “absolutely no justification” for shooting Lemp based on what...
