Detroit police search for 2 men after transgender woman robbed, shot on city's west side

Fri, 11/17/2017 - 11:43pm

Police are looking for two men after a transgender woman was robbed and shot in Detroit early Friday.

Police said at about 1:45 a.m., two men got out of a vehicle in the 17800 block of Woodward Avenue and took a 36-year-old woman's purse. One of the men, who had a rifle, shot the victim four times when she tried to flee.

The victim was listed in serious condition. Police have not confirmed if she was targeted because she is transgender.

The men left in a red GMC Yukon. After a brief chase, the vehicle jumped a curb and struck a concrete barrier, police said.

Three people exited the vehicle and fled on foot, police said. Police detained one person and recovered the rifle, while the two others got away.

Less than 24 hours after the shooting, many gathered in Ferndale to remember members of the transgender community who have been lost to violence.

While the woman survived the shooting, there still weren't enough candles at the vigil to honor all of the people who have died as a result of anti-transgender violence in a year.

"This year, we're honoring 487 names, and that's just one year," said Michelle Fox-Phillips, of the Gender Identity Network Alliance.

Friends of the shooting victim, who is known as "Chocolate," described her as supportive.

"When I heard that, I couldn't believe it. I live in Ferndale and it's 2 miles down the road. We can do better than this," Father Charles Blanchard of Christ the Good Shepherd church, said.

Transgender Remembrance Day is Monday.

Anyone with information about the crime or the men is asked to call police at 313-596-5840 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.

More than 60,000 expected to attend Solanus Casey Beatification in Detroit

Fri, 11/17/2017 - 11:41pm

Thousands of Catholics are expected to come together Saturday for a special beatification mass for Fr. Solanus Casey at Ford Field in Detroit.

Fr. Casey's Beatification: What you need to know

For months, a steady stream of people have been at the Fr. Solanus Casey Center in Detroit, where Casey's tomb is located. Many Catholics pray and ask for help at the center.

Dorothy Dube's mother said she went to Casey for help when doctors told her she would lose her baby.

"And of course Fr. Solanus answered the door. [He] said, 'Go home and you're going to have a healthy baby.'"

She had a healthy baby, and Dorothy is proof of that.

Casey had an open door policy, and his family can attest to that.

"Solanus was known throughout Detroit. You know he didn't do anything but answer the door and listen to people," said his niece, Sister Anne Herkenrath.

The beatification puts Casey one step closer to sainthood, something the Detroit Archdiocese has been working on for more than 60 years because of how many people flocked to him for help.

Beautification ceremonies usually take place in Rome, but this weekend, many who would never get to see the ceremony will witness it.

According to the American Kennel Club, pets can have turkey and port, though holiday dinners usually include meats that pets shouldn't have. Plain meats can be consumed by dogs, but seasonings and sauces can make them sick. Also, onion powder, garlic powder and nutmeg are highly toxic to dogs.

Fatty foods and salt can also make dogs sick.

Foods containing artificial sweetener xylitol are also toxic to pets. Diet and low-calorie foods may be made with the sweetener.

Other foods that should not be given to dogs include tea, chocolate, garlic, avocado, alcohol, yeast dough, grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts and onions.

Michigan police officer charged with firing gun into car in which woman hurt

Fri, 11/17/2017 - 8:04pm

A southwestern Michigan police officer has been charged with recklessly firing her gun during a traffic stop involving a stolen vehicle that left one person with minor injuries.

Mattawan police Officer Chelsey Omilian was arraigned Friday on the charge punishable by up to 90 days in jail and $500 fine. She was released and couldn't be reached for comment.

The charges stem from a Nov. 3 incident in which nearby schools were locked down. Michigan State Police Lt. Chuck Christensen said the bullet or shrapnel from the vehicle struck a woman in the car, wounding her knee.

The driver, Gary Kingsbury, has been charged with unlawfully using a motor vehicle and resisting and obstructing police. He remains jailed.

Mattawan Chief Scott Herbert says in a release Omilian fired because she thought Kingsbury was trying to run her over. She's no longer working for the department.

$20,000 reward offered for information regarding Warren bank robber who sprayed woman with gasoline

Fri, 11/17/2017 - 5:23pm

Police have released the surveillance footage of the bank robbery in Warren on Wednesday.

A bank teller was doused in gasoline during the robbery and was told that she would be set on fire if she didn't give the robber money.

A $20,000 reward is being offered by Huntington Bank representatives for information leading to an arrest.

"It's deranged," Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer said.

The man had medical gauze taped to his face to disguise his appearance and approached a bank manager and asked about opening a checking account.

The man then spoke briefly with a teller before pulling out a plastic spray bottle and squirting gasoline on her, telling the teller that she would be set on fire unless money was handed over.

"This is not your typical robbery," Dwyer said.

He pursued the woman around the bank, threatening her with a cigarette and a lighter, before she could lock herself in a bathroom. The manager filled a black duffel bag for the man, and he fled with about $4,000.

"It's a very disturbing one," Dwyer said. "That's why we want to get him arrested as soon as possible."

The bank robber was described as black, 25 to 30 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs 150 pounds and had gauze bandage on his face. He was wearing gray sweatpants, a black hooded sweatshirt, a black down vest, a blue and gray baseball cap and a glove on his right hand.

The FBI is investigating alongside Warren police detectives.

The bank employee was treated by EMS at the scene and was not injured.

Man charged with illegal dumping in Detroit

Fri, 11/17/2017 - 1:21pm

John Evans has been charged with three counts of scrap tires, a violation involving 50 or more tires.

According to authorities, Evans dumped more than 250 tires on someone else's property in the area of Buchanan Street and West Forest Avenue. He was caught on camera at least five times dumping tires between Sep. 18 and Oct. 5, the charges say.

On Oct. 10, a citizen who owned property witnessed Evans illegally dumping tires for the sixth time and notified the police.

Evans was issued several blight violations and had his vehicle impounded.

An arrest warrant was issued on Nov. 15, and Evans was taken into custody without incident.

It isn't the first time Evans has been charged with scrap tires. Charges in 2015 said he was caught by a business owner who witnessed Evans dumping tires in an alley from a flatbed truck he had rented.

Just over two months ago, the University of Michigan Robotics department received Cassie Blue, a sleek, bipedal robot.

Many steps up from its predecessor MARLO, the team hopes Cassie will help them make make great strides in independent robotic walking.

Jessy Grizzle, director of Michigan Robotics and the Elmer G. Gilbert Distinguished University Professor of Engineering, let the A4 team into the new robotics lab to see Cassie in action.

Watch our Facebook live video:

Grizzle and his team of graduate students are exploring ways Cassie can shed light on the development of robotic prosthetic limbs and serve as a life-saving device in natural disaster recovery zones.

The team has a YouTube channel and films Cassie's outings around north campus.

Mackinac County man wins $4.3 million Lotto 47 jackpot

Fri, 11/17/2017 - 12:13pm

A Mackinac County man can't wait to "share with family" after winning a $4.3 million Lotto 47 jackpot from the Michigan Lottery.

The player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched all six Lotto 47 numbers drawn Nov. 1 after buying his ticket at the Kwik Mart on Main Street in Walkerville.

This is the seventh time in 2017 a player has won the Lotto 47 jackpot.

"I was visiting family members down state and stopped to buy a Lotto 47 ticket," said the player. "A few days later, I was having a burger and beer near my home when I noticed my wallet was full of tickets, so I started scanning them on the self-service machine.

"When I scanned the Lotto 47 ticket, I got a funny message so I set it aside thinking I'd check it again at the end of my tickets. When I checked it again, I got the same message, so I took it up to the bartender. She handed it back to me and told me I'd won big. I asked my stepdaughter to text the winning numbers from Nov. 1 to me. When I saw I'd matched all six, I screamed: 'Oh my god!'"

The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters Thursday to claim his big prize. He chose to receive his prize as a one-time lump sum payment of about $2.8 million, rather than an annuity. He plans to share his winnings with his family, and may buy a newer truck.

"This is still all sinking in," the player said. "I can't wait to help my family out with this jackpot. When I see the look on each of their faces is when I think it will really set in that I'm a millionaire."
"I've got six kids and several grandkids, so I'll probably be half-broke by the time I'm done with them," the player joked. "But it'll be worth it!"
