Footage of fatal shooting outside Cascade Middle School, Jan. 11, 2019 Eugene OR.

Authorities released Eugene police body camera footage in the Jan. 11, 2019 fatal shooting of Charles Landeros outside Cascade Middle School.

EUGENE, Ore. – As police attempted to place Charlie Landeros under arrest after removing him from Cascade Middle School amidst a child custody dispute January 11, Landeros pulled a 9mm handgun from a hoster and pointed the weapon at Officer Steve Timm, investigators determined based on video evidence and witness statements.

As Officer Aaron Johns tried to take control of the gun, Landeros again pointed the gun at the school resource officer and fired two shots, investigators said.

Officer Timm recognized that the situation was dangerous and needed to be controlled. Both were in fear of their own death or the death of other bystanders or students in the area,” District Attorney Patty Perlow wrote. “Officer Johns said he knew that if he let go of Landeros’ hand in the struggle, they were going to be killed. Officer Timm fired one bullet directly at Charles Landeros, striking Landeros in the temple, which was the cause of death.

SWAT Responds To Active Shooter Report At Hospital post Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, FL on June 12, 2016

This video contains unedited police interactions that is shown for documentary purposes of a newsworthy event. It is left unedited so that people may understand what actually happened in this event. It may contain graphic video and/or audio. Viewer discretion is advised.

On June 12, 2016, what began as an active shooter incident when a lone gunman entered the Pulse nightclub in Orlando and began shooting innocent club goers transitioned into a barricaded-suspect-with-hostages incident. The night was horrific, and by morning the Pulse tragedy had become the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil since September 11, 2001. Ultimately at least one out of every three people in Pulse was either wounded or killed, and one hundred two innocent people had been shot: 49 of them killed, 53 injured.

As the scene at Pulse unfolded law enforcement was faced with many monumental tasks. Among them was collecting, processing, and swiftly taking appropriate action in response to information.

At 3:25 am, as victims were actively being evaluated and resuscitated at Orlando Regional Medical Center, a report was issued indicating that gunfire had been heard in the emergency room lobby. The hospital’s “code silver” active shooter plan was implemented and heavily armed police officers and sheriff’s deputies rapidly arrived and began combing the hospital for possible threats. Staff closed doors and remained in place while continuing to provide patient care, as portable X-ray machines were used to barricade the trauma resuscitation room doors and prevent entry.

Initial reports stated that one of the victims that had been transferred to the hospital was in fact a second shooter at the club. This allegation was later determined to be false, but the report led to an incredibly tense scene at the hospital. But finally, approximately 45 minutes after it began, the code silver alert and lockdown were lifted.

This body-worn camera footage shows the manhunt for the non-existent second shooter, beginning just before the report of his existence came over the radio and ending with the “capture” of a terrifically unlucky Pulse victim and the stand-down of responding officers.

Of note, many physicians and nurses continued to move from room to room of the emergency department during the lockdown, caring for patients despite the risk of personal injury.

No Active Shooter Found At Walter Reed Military Medical Center, Despite Reports

CBS Baltimore reports

A call came in at about 2 p.m. for a report of an active shooter situation in the basement of building 19 at Walter Reed. After an investigation by NSA Bethesda, no active shooter was found.

Investigators found that this was a “false alarm and not part of a scheduled drill,” as was reported by the U.S. Navy and other military officials.

The U.S. Navy tweeted later in the evening that the incident was the result of “the improper use of a mass notification system by a tenant command aboard the installation.

They continued to say that while preparing for an upcoming drill, the notification system was “inadvertently enacted without containing the words “EXERCISE” or “DRILL”

 

 

 

Thanksgiving night mall shooting

 

A Thanksgiving night shooting at Alabama’s largest enclosed mall left a gunman dead and two people — including a 12-year-old girl — injured, authorities said, and sent terrified shoppers running for safety. The incident at the Riverchase Galleria in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover started with a fight between an 18-year-old and the 21-year-old gunman, police said. Police do not know how the confrontation began, but “we do not believe at this point the 18-year-old was armed,” Hoover police Capt. Gregg Rector said. The gunman opened fire, shooting the teen twice in the torso, according to police. An armed Hoover police officer who was working security at the mall confronted the gunman as he ran away from the scene and fatally shot him, police said. A 12-year-old girl described by police as a bystander also was shot once, but it’s unclear by whom, Rector said. Both of the injured were taken to hospitals. The girl has had surgery and “does not have life-threatening injuries,” Rector told CNN. Her condition was stable Friday morning, police said. The injured 18-year-old was in serious condition when an ambulance took him to the hospital, police said.

Cops Shooting Armed Hospital Patient Huntersville, NC

Huntersville, NC police ordered a 76-year-old Hurricane Irma evacuee to drop his gun before and after they shot him in a hospital hallway in September, according to video released Monday by the Huntersville Police Department. The gun is not visible in the video before the shooting. In December, Mecklenburg County District Attorney Spencer Merriweather ruled two Huntersville police officers were justified in shooting and killing James Charles Cook, who was a patient at Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center. A nurse came to Cook’s room around 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 10 and saw him pull a gun out of his suitcase, according to investigation records released with the DA’s report. She ran away from the room and was returning with a security guard when she heard a gunshot, the records said. The security guard, who was unarmed, watched Cook walk out of his room holding a gun, records said. The Huntersville officers, Michael Joseph and Travis Watts, responded to the hospital after hearing reports that a man had fired shots there. On the video released Monday, filmed by Joseph’s body camera, Watts can be seen with a black shield and a gun.

The video showed the officers looking for Cook in the hospital and riding an elevator before they found him near a nurses’ station. “Sir, show me your hands! Show me your hands! Do it now!” one officer said. Another voice said “got a gun” as shots rang out, creating a breeze that turned the pages of a binder on the nurses’ station counter. In interviews with State Bureau of Investigations officials, Watts and Joseph both said they saw Cook point a gun at Watts before they fired, according to the DA’s report. The officers shot Cook just past the two-minute mark of the video, and Cook is not visible in the video before or during the shooting. Officers continued to point their guns at Cook after shooting him. “Sir! Put that gun down! Drop the gun … do not move! Do not move!” an officer said to Cook. One officer, apparently concerned about the possibility of other attackers, told another to “check our backs and make sure nobody’s gonna shoot us.” During the rest of the nine-minute video, the officers talked to colleagues about checking the rest of the hospital and keeping an eye on Cook’s gun. “How in the world did he get a gun in a hospital?” one officer asked near the end of the video.

Gunman opened fire in Cincinnati downtown bank

Cincinnati police released body camera and security camera video footage showing the harrowing moment when officers shot and killed a gunman who opened fire on a downtown bank on Thursday morning, September 06, 2018. Surveillance video from the Fifth Third Bank headquarters near the city’s Fountain Square shows the gunman, identified by police as 29-year-old Omar Perez from Northbend, Ohio, walking methodically through the building. Perez, wearing a long-sleeved shirt, pants and a shoulder bag, could be seen behind the security turnstile, pointing his gun forward. In one clip, a security officer could seen helping a man off the ground and to safety before Perez walks by moments later. Isaac described the security guard’s actions as “heroic.” The gunman could be seen taking “shots at anyone he sees,” Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac said in a press conference Friday. Later, when Perez appears to see the officers approaching, he turns to run away but is propelled forward after he is struck by gunfire. Isaac also played body camera footage from two of the officers who engaged the suspect and 911 calls reporting the shooting. Officers approaching the building could hear multiple gunshots ringing out, which “enabled the officers to pinpoint the shooter’s location,” Isaac said. As the officers ran toward the building, they spotted the gunman “actively firing shots in the first-floor lobby,” the police chief said. Four officers then engaged the subject, shooting him through the glass window, Isaac said. The officers fired 11 rounds, eight from 9 mm handguns, two rounds from a shotgun and 1 round from a rifle, Isaac said. By the time one officer cracked open the door to the lobby, the gunman was on the ground, the body camera footage shows. The officers then entered the building, subdued the suspect and began to render aid to the victims, Isaac said. In a 911 call, a woman can be heard telling an emergency dispatcher that she’s locked in a bathroom with others. The emergency dispatcher tells her to stay there and wait for officers, who were already on the scene. The 911 center received “hundreds of calls” reporting the shooting, the emergency dispatcher said. Three people were killed and two injured in the shooting. The injured are still being treated in the hospital, Isaac said. Perez arrived at the location in his own vehicle and parked his car on a nearby street, Isaac said. He then entered through the side of the building and opened fire before continuing into the lobby are and firing more shots, Isaac said. About 4 minutes, 28 seconds passed between when Perez fired his first shot and he was stopped by officers, Isaac said. Emergency dispatcher received the first 911 call about 55 seconds after Perez fired the first shot, Isaac said. Fire personnel determined Perez dead at the scene, the police chief said. Coroners will determine how many times he was struck be police gunfire. Perez was armed with a Taurus 9mm semi-automatic handgun, which was legally purchased from a Cincinnati gun store in August, Isaac said. He fired 35 rounds during the shooting, but while exchanging gunfire with police, his firearm malfunctioned and jammed, according to the police chief. Perez had about 200 rounds of extra ammunition in the briefcase he was carrying, Isaac said. Investigators have not yet determined a motive for the shooting. Police believe he may have been trying to eventually make his way to the federal courthouse. Perez was not a current or former employee of the bank, Isaac said at a press conference Thursday. He had been living in Cincinnati since 2015 at seven different addresses, Isaac said. He had been issued several citations in the area but did not have a local criminal history. Perez also has a “brief criminal history” in South Carolina and Palm Beach, Florida, Isaac said. Court documents show that Perez filed two lawsuits against NBC Universal, Inc. and CNBC Universal Media in the Southern District of Ohio earlier this year, alleging that the oranizations used his cell phone harvest and broadcast his personal information. No such broadcasts appear to have been aired, ABC Cincinnati station WCPO reported.
