1 person killed, 1 officer wounded in police-involved shooting on New York State Thruway

HILLBURN, New York (WABC) -- One person was killed after a police-involved shooting in Hillburn, New York.

Suffern Mayor Mike Curley confirmed the fatal shooting, which occurred after a traffic stop Wednesday afternoon near Exit 15B on the New York State Thruway.

According to officials, two New York State Troopers stopped a white Mercedes that they say was identified as a 'Be On the Lookout' on I-87 in the town of Ramapo.

The vehicle was wanted for fleeing a drive-by shooting earlier in the day in Albany that left one person hospitalized.

During the traffic stop by State Police, officials say the driver opened fire on troopers, who returned fire.

The driver was confirmed dead on the scene.

One trooper sustained minor injuries, and the other was unharmed.

Due to the ongoing police investigation, the southbound lanes on the I-87 are closed.

27-year-old porch pirate accused of stealing packages from Yonkers home

YONKERS, New York (WABC) -- A bold porch pirate was caught on camera and is accused of stealing not one, but two packages from a home in Yonkers.

Police say the suspect, identified as 27-year-old Jose Eder Mateo, took the packages and stuffed them into his bookbag.

A homeowner says he saw the theft in progress on his Ring camera and called 911.

Officers spotted him and said Mateo led them on a brief foot pursuit. A Yonkers public works employee also saw him running and helped stop Mateo by pushing him to the ground.

Mateo has been arraigned and released on his own recognizance. He is charged with grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, both felonies, in addition to other misdemeanors.

3 people facing charges after wild brawl caught on video after crash on Long Island

LINDENHURST, Suffolk County (WABC) -- Three people are facing charges following a wild brawl that occurred after a two-vehicle crash on Long Island last week.

Patrick O'Connor, Sr., James O'Connor, and Patrick O'Connor, Jr. are facing assault charges for the Dec. 20th road rage attack in North Lindenhurst.

The minutes-long brawl ensued after two trucks crashed on Sunrise Highway near North Green Avenue, causing one of the two to flip on its side.

Witnesses say as many as ten people broke out into a physical confrontation on the road.

"Saw a bunch of guys, probably five on five, swinging baseball bats and two-by-fours," Spiffy Car Wash Express owner Todd Christman recalled. "My understanding is nobody was seriously hurt, but some people were in the hospital."

Police say everyone involved in the fight seemed to have known each other.

Police seek suspect who fatally shot man on subway train in Crown Heights

CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (WABC) -- The 45-year-old Brooklyn man fatally shot on a subway train Sunday night is believed to have been killed after intervening in a dispute over loud music, fellow passengers told detectives.

Officials say Richard Henderson was shot in the back and shoulder on Sunday just before 8:30 p.m. He was riding a Manhattan-bound No. 3 train approaching the Franklin Ave-Medgar Evers College station.

Detectives are being told that Henderson was attempting to break up the argument between two fellow passengers over loud music.

One of the men involved fired at Henderson as the subway train arrived at the Franklin Ave.-Medgar Evers College station. The gunman then fled into the station.

The victim was found inside a subway car at the station and was taken to Kings County Hospital where he died.

"Everywhere you go some random terrible thing. We just have to learn to live with it, Would be nice if we had better gun control but that's going to take big shift in politics and that's not about to happen," said Professor Jeff Spinner-Halevim.

The southbound No. 3 train was temporarily held Sunday night at the Franklin Avenue station.

SUV hits two people pushing strollers in double hit-and-run in Midtown, witnesses say

MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- Two strollers were clipped in a double hit-and-run in a busy intersection near Rockefeller Center Sunday afternoon.

Witnesses say a yellow SUV, possibly a taxi, hit one person pushing a stroller - and then sped away and hit another person, also hitting that stroller.

It happened near West 48th Street and Sixth Avenue just before 3 p.m. Police say the SUV sped up just as the light was changing - but by the time the driver made it through the intersection, the light was red and pedestrians were in it.

The SUV clipped one stroller in the first crosswalk and then hit a second stroller in the second crosswalk, according to witnesses. One victim says their stroller was knocked over, but no one was hurt. Witnesses said they saw the family with the second stroller in the second crosswalk of the intersection.

A hot dog vendor tells Eyewitness News he later helped that second family until an ambulance arrived.

"The yellow taxi, he didn't stop in the red light and he keep going. And on the other side, the people was coming. The baby, his dad and his mom, and the taxi push them in the floor," said Ahmed Sory,."The dad and his mom stopped on the floor and the baby kept going in the car in the middle of the street."

There are many NYPD cameras in the busy intersection, so police will be going through video to find the vehicle.

FDNY EMS says three people were taken to a hospital to be checked out and treated for minor injuries.

Man with bear spray prevents crash-and-grab burglary at Everett pot shop

Man with bear spray prevents crash-and-grab burglary at Everett pot shop

EVERETT, Wash. — Burglary suspects at an Everett pot shop were chased away by a neighbor using bear spray Monday morning.

The incident occurred shortly after 3 a.m. at Marijuanaclub99, located on Highway 99 at 12631 Evergreen Way. Owner Ryan Johnson said he got a call that the alarm went off and looked at the security cameras and saw multiple vehicles — one of which crashed into the building.

Johnson said a man who lives nearby ran to the store and sprayed bear repellent at the suspects, who then took off without any items. Significant structural damage was done to the store, though. The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office (SCSO) said the vehicles involved are believed to have been stolen.

"It sounds like they ran their cars into each other and almost flipped one of them outside," Johnson added.

Surveillance video shows three vehicles pull into the parking lot and one back into the store. Multiple suspects exit the vehicles and head for the store, then run back after the bear spray-wielding man approaches. Two of the vehicles collided on the way out of the parking lot, and the man is seen on video spraying a few of the suspects in the face.

He's a great guy," Johnson said. "I'm very grateful. He'll get a reward for that. It's amazing he could get out here and put a stop to it so quick.

Monday's incident marked the first crash-and-grab attempt at the dispensary, Johnson said, but the shop has been robbed at gunpoint four or five times. Johnson said he hopes the shop will reopen in the next "day or two." The SCSO said there have been no arrests made.

"Until they change legislation, they're going to keep doing it," Johnson said. "There's no real punishment behind it at this time.

Police: 12 arrested for break-in at Chabad Headquarters in Crown Heights

Authorities say a dozen people were arrested Monday night following a break-in and vandalism at the Chabad Lubavitch Headquarters synagogue in Crown Heights.
According to a spokesperson for the Chabad, a group of "extremist students" gained unauthorized access to the building at 770 Eastern Pkwy. by breaking through walls of adjacent properties.
The Chabad ordered a cement truck to repair the holes Monday afternoon. When the suspects found out, the Chabad says they attempted to disrupt the repairs by breaking inside the synagogue.
Citizen app video captured the moments people were seen throwing furniture, arguing with officers and emerging from the gaping hole in the wall. Others were seen escaping from grates in the sidewalk.
Members of the Chabad say the action of a few individuals does not define their institution.
The building was closed to members Tuesday morning. They were only allowed to enter for small periods of time. The Department of Buildings is investigating the structural stability of the building.
Charges for the 12 suspects arrested are still pending.

Police searching for burglary spree suspects

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Four men broke into multiple businesses beginning Friday morning, stealing over $11,000 worth of items at one store, police said. 

The Memphis Police Department responded to the first burglary Dec. 1 around 4:30 a.m. in the 1700 block of Prescott Road at the Prescott Express convenience store, where officers found the front door pried open. 

Police said multiple suspects stole T-shirts and drove away in a black four-door BMW with tinted windows. 

Almost 20 minutes later, officers responded to an alarm at 1617 Getwell Road at the Romantix adult entertainment store. Someone told them that the safe, a cash register, and $11,000 in merchandise were taken. Four suspects had escaped in a black four-door sedan, police said. 

Another alarm call sent officers to 862 South Cooper Street at Soul Fish Cafe about an hour later. Police said four suspects drove into the lot in a black BMW then stole a safe from the restaurant before getting away. 

The next day around 5 a.m., police said camera footage captured four suspects forcing their way inside Sugar Ghost Ice Cream and Bubble Tea at 2615 Broad Avenue, then escaping in a dark-colored four-door BMW and a midsize Infiniti SUV.

Investigators said they believe the four incidents are related. No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing. 

Anyone with information regarding these burglaries should call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
