    Police hold man seen leaving in victim's car

    An 18-year-old woman was shot and killed as she worked alone inside an office complex Saturday morning.

    Phoenix police arrested a man reportedly seen leaving the area shortly after the shooting.

    Norma Gabriella Contreras was shot in the upper body and killed about 11 a.m. Saturday while working at an insurance office at 7342 W. Indian School Road.

    The suspect, Stephen D. Reeves, 53, was charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery and theft of a vehicle.

    "It appeared the victim was chosen randomly," Phoenix police Detective Bob Ragsdale said.

    Witnesses called 911 after they heard a women screaming. Police arrived at the scene and saw blood on the floor of one of the complex's offices.

    A witness reported to 911 operators seeing the suspect get into the victim's parked car and drive away as officers arrived on scene.

    Operators notified the officers, who soon caught up with the car, found Reeves inside and arrested him.
    Note: MMC I modified the title of your thread to be more general as your thread concept is an excellent idea toward long term cataloging of as much. Please excuse my intrusion.

    SWAT team in standoff at Hampton McDonald's

    As reported today by the Daily Press:

    SWAT team in standoff at Hampton McDonald's
    Phoebus High was put on lockdown

    BY SHAWN DAY AND JIM HODGES
    Daily Press
    June 4, 2007, 3:00 PM EDT

    HAMPTON -- All of the hostages involved in a police standoff at a a McDonald's restaurant are free and uninjured, but Hampton police continue a a tense standoff with an unidentified gunman.

    Police say they received a call about 1:54 p.m. from a person who said they were armed and inside the restaurant, which is at the intersection of Pembroke Avenue and Grimes Road.

    The caller did not make any demands, but early reports were that a number of people inside the restaurant at the time the standoff began were held inside a freezer - including an employee who is eight months pregant.

    Police set up a command post a short distance away from the restaurant, with ambulances and fire trucks parked nearby.

    All of the hostages were released about 4:40 p.m., after members of the SWAT team went inside the restaurant. There were no reports of shots fired.

    A spokeswoman for Hampton City Schools says nearby Phoebus High School went into lockdown at 2:05 after being told about the standoff by city police.

    She says the district also put Jones and Spratley middle schools and Merrimack, Cary and Smith elementary schools in modified lockdown to protect students.

    When Phoebus dismissed school at 2:35, all students who walked to school were taken to the gymnasium and were not allowed to leave until they could be safely escorted off campus or were picked up by parents.

    Students who drove to school left through the faculty parking lot. Hampton Roads Transit buses, which provide school transportation, were rerouted so they did not drive by the restaurant. All afterschool activities were canceled for the day.

    Christina Meyer of Hampton said she lives next door to the restaurant and went in about 1:30 p.m. to put in a job application, but was told none were available. Asked after the standoff started whether she still wanted to work at the restaurant, Meyer said no.

    Staff writers Shawn Day and Jim Hodges, and staff photographer Sangjib Min are on the scene. Look to dailypress.com for updates on this breaking news story.

    i wonder

    with ccw - if we lived life like on a tv and some nutjob decided to create a hostage situation - with a bomb instead of say a gun


    everyone would still be in fear for their lives - so i assume it would be a justified shooting

    or am i totally off base?

    A Phoenix man was robbed and shot at in downtown Tempe Saturday night.

    A 24-year-old suspect demanded the victim's wallet at gunpoint at 10:39 p.m. Saturday in the 200 block of West Fifth Street, near Mill Avenue and University Drive, according to Tempe Police. The victim handed over some money, but then was shot at when he struggled with the suspect over his wallet.

    The suspect fled to a vehicle that was being driven by a Mesa resident. The vehicle sped off and fled police until it was involved in a collision at McClintock Drive and Southern Avenue.


    The suspects then ran away on foot before being apprehended by police.

    Both men were arrested on suspicion of armed robbery. The driver was also arrested on suspicion of felony flight and aggravated drunk driving.

    The suspects' names are not being released at this time pending further investigation as to their possible involvement in other crimes.

    The victim was uninjured.

    Clerk shot and killed

    A call for help led to the death of a Circle K clerk. Phoenix police said a person was shot, and went into the store near 58th Avenue and McDowell looking for help.

    The shooter followed the victim, and shot and killed the clerk working at the store.

    Police are looking for the suspect. He's described as an Hispanic man, 20 to 25 years old, 5'5'' to 5'7'', weighing 140-160 pounds. He has shorter dark hair and a mustache.

    He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt over a white T-shirt and dark, baggy cargo shorts. He was driving a newer model white Cadillac.

    Bank robbery suspect in custody

    Police have a man in custody after an attempted armed bank robbery at 43rd Ave. and Olive Ave. in Glendale.

    Police believe Carl Stewart, 50, entered the Bank of America branch just before 5 p.m., told tellers that he had a bomb in his backpack, and demanded money.

    Tellers handed over the money but an alarm was sounded. Customers inside the bank also contacted police while the attempted robbery was in progress.


    Police say Stewart tried to flee but customers at the bank subdued him until police arrived. He was treated for minor injuries resulting from the scuffle.

    A bomb squad examined the backpack for explosive material and determined there was no bomb.

    No one was injured in the incident and police believe all the money has been returned to the bank. Stewart is being held at a detention facility for questioning.

    Glendale police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will conduct an investigation.

    kinda ironic i was thinking about something like this the other day and posted about it

    Robber Forces Utah Woman to Fill His SUV With Gas

    As reported via FoxNews:

    Robber Forces Utah Woman to Fill His SUV With Gas

    Tuesday, June 05, 2007

    SALT LAKE CITY — A woman was held up during a fill-up.

    The woman was pumping gasoline at a station south of downtown Sunday morning when a man stuck something in her back, told her it was a gun and ordered her to start filling up his sport utility vehicle instead of her own car, said Salt Lake City police Detective Jared Wihongi.

    "This is definitely not common," Wihongi said Monday.

    The woman put $15 worth in the other vehicle's tank before her debit card reached its limit.

    Wihongi said surveillance video at the station showed two men in a large, white sport utility vehicle with Wyoming license plates. They could face aggravated robbery charges.

    The woman was so shaken up by the incident she didn't call police until about three hours later.

    Man Leaps on Jeep carrying Pope Benedict XVI

    As reported by ABCNews.com:

    Man Leaps on Jeep carrying Pope Benedict XVI
    Pontiff Appears Unfazed After Man Jumps Barrier



    Jun 6, 2007

    VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - A man leaped over a barricade during Pope Benedict's weekly audience on Wednesday and tried to jump on to his moving, open-topped popemobile but was stopped by guards.

    It was the first serious security breach in the Vatican regarding Benedict since he was elected in April 2005. The man took the Pope's bodyguards by surprise and managed to get to within about a meter of the Pope.

    Vatican sources said the man was unarmed and did not appear to have posed a threat to the Pope, who was not aware of what was happening behind him.

    Television pictures showed a man wearing a baseball cap and short pants jump out of the crowd and over a wooden barricade in St Peter's Square as the Pope passed by on the jeep to start his weekly general audience for some 40,000 people.

    Hurtling from the Pope's right, he tried to jump on the back of the moving popemobile but only managed to touch it before being wrestled to the ground by Vatican security guards.

    The Pope was standing on the open jeep facing forward and looking at the crowd to his left and did not see the man trying to get on the vehicle.

    The driver did not appear to know what was happening behind him since the speed of the vehicle did not increase.

    The episode lasted about 15 seconds.

    The man, believed to be between 20 and 30 years old, was taken in for questioning and was due to be handed over to Italian police.

    While Vatican guards make initial detentions in St Peter's Square, suspects are routinely handed over to Italian police in line with a special international agreement in force since 1929.

    Benedict's predecessor, John Paul, was shot and nearly killed in the same square by Turkish gunman Mehmet Ali Agca on May 13, 1981.

    The report with video can be found at; http://abcnews.go.com/International/...ory?id=3249344

    Note: Not even The Pope is absolutely completely without fail 100% safe from crime, criminal acts, and/or highly motivated crazy people with intent.
    We average Joe and Jane types who are not Pope's who expect same or in some folks minds better are just not being realistic. I suppose those same people would suggest The Pope simply dial 9-1-1 and wait for Robocop to swoop in just in the nick of time.
    Oh, and the Popemobile is not a "Jeep". It's a customized Land Rover Defender 90.
