Prosecutors: Green Bay gas station shooting was self-defense

GREEN BAY (WLUK) — A fatal shooting at a Green Bay gas station was self-defense, prosecutors have ruled.

Dominique Marie Wilson, 34, was killed in the Nov. 14 shooting at the Marathon gas station on E. Walnut Street and S. Monroe Avenue.

In a news release Friday, the Brown County district attorney’s office said the incident stemmed from an ongoing dispute between two groups of people. At the gas station in the early morning hours, the two groups confronted each other. Surveillance showed mostly females involved, with some carrying weapons such as baseball bats, brass knuckles and pepper spray.

Prosecutors say at one point Wilson went to her vehicle and got a loaded handgun. Surveillance video showed her pointing the gun at others nearby and trying to fire it at people who were fighting. While this was going on, a person who was there with friends and family members shot and killed Wilson.

Two days later, the shooter turned himself in to Green Bay police. He said he shot Wilson out of fear she would start shooting everyone else.

Prosecutors say no one will be charged in the case. FOX 11 is not naming the shooter because he is not being charged.

Ceres man shot after allegedly trying to break into home

CERES, Calif. — Police believe a man found shot in the backyard of a Ceres home Thursday was trying to break into the home.

According to a press release from the Ceres Police Department, officers received a call Thursday just after 4 a.m. for a report of a man shot outside of a home along the 2300 block of Moffett Road. Upon arrival, police found 23-year-old Anthony Robledo in the backyard of the home, suffering from a gunshot wound.

During their investigation, police believe Robledo was attempting to break into the home through a back window. When a resident of the home saw Robledo with a gun trying to enter, the resident shot at Robledo, hitting him multiple times.

California’s “castle doctrine” is the law that is applied to self-defense inside a person’s home. A Sacramento attorney previously told ABC10 a person may use reasonable force to defend themselves on their own private property when they believe an intruder may cause them harm.

Robledo was taken to the hospital where police said he is listed critical condition.

Yes, there is a town named ‘North Pole’ Alaska.

North Pole [Alaska] Gun seller fatally shoots 1 of 2 men who planned to rob him

A firearms sale in which two men planned to rob the seller resulted in one of the men being shot dead, North Pole police said Thursday.

Officers responded to a report of an armed robbery in progress near 301 N. Santa Claus Lane late Wednesday night, the North Pole Police Department said in a statement. Police were told that one person had been shot while another was being held at gunpoint, and when they arrived at the scene, officers detained several people in the parking lot.

Investigators determined Adam Dane Selid, 18, and Dalen Davis, 19, had arranged to meet an individual to buy firearms from them but actually planned to rob the seller during the transaction, police said. During the meetup, Selid and Davis agreed to buy the weapons, then Selid pulled out a gun and threatened the seller, according to police.

During a struggle over Selid’s gun, “the seller was able to retrieve a handgun that he had on his person and fired one round, striking Selid,” police said in the statement.

Selid was shot in the abdomen and taken to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, police said. Next of kin have been notified.

After investigators interviewed Davis at the police department, he was arrested and taken to the Fairbanks Correctional Center, police said. Online court records show that Davis faces charges of first-degree robbery and second-degree manslaughter. North Pole police said he “knowingly engaged in conduct that resulted in the death of another person.”

The gun seller, who fatally shot Selid, “has not been charged at this time,” police said.

A store employee exchanged gunfire with another man during an armed robbery on Sunday afternoon in River North, police said. No injuries were reported, but a witness said the store’s glass, which faces busy Ontario Street, was shot out.

Police suspect the same robber held up two more stores in the Loop less than an hour later.

Cops responded to calls of shots fired and flying glass on the first block of West Ontario around 1:50 p.m. A CPD spokesperson said an armed robber pulled out a gun inside the store, but an employee also pulled out a gun.

“There was an exchange of gunfire between the victim and the offender,” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement. The robber escaped with a cellphone.

Police did not identify the store, but officers entered Mystical Kicks and Mystical Smokes, which sells gym shoes, CBD products, and vaping supplies at 33 West Ontario. Investigators were verifying the employee’s concealed carry credentials.

Investigators determined that the man escaped on a southbound Red Line train at the Grand station.

Appleton Police say fatal shooting was in self-defense

APPLETON, Wis. (WBAY) – Police are not recommending criminal charges in connection to a fatal June 2021 shooting in Appleton.

The department has determined that the shooting of Jonathan Tolley, 38, was in self-defense.

On June 20, at about 4:30 a.m., police were called to a report of a suspicious person in the 2800 block of E. Newberry St. As they responded, officers were alerted to a second caller saying there was an unknown man in their house.

The caller said they had locked themselves in a bedroom and could hear a man yelling in the home. A short time later, police were notified that a gun had been fired.

Officers arrived to find Tolley with a gunshot wound. He was taken to a local hospital where he died.

Police say a person inside the home shot Tolley, an Appleton resident.

“Investigators from the Appleton Police Department conducted an extensive investigation into this incident. Evidence indicates Jonathan Tolley forcibly entered the locked residence, caused damage while inside of the home, and forcibly entered a locked bedroom where the residents of the home were sheltering while on the phone with 911 dispatchers. After entering the locked bedroom, the residents indicated Tolley continued to advance towards them. Tolley was subsequently shot one time by a resident of the home,” reads a statement from police.

Investigators determined the resident shot Tolley in self-defense. No charges will be recommended for the person who shot Tolley. Officers did not identify the person who fired the shot.

Investigators say they do not know Tolley’s motive. They do not believe the homeowners knew Tolley. Toxicology reports show Tolley’s blood alcohol level was .272 at the time of his death. For comparison, the legal limit to drive a car in Wisconsin is .08.

Yakima man says he was defending family during Walmart shooting

YAKIMA, Wash. — Yakima police declined to arrest a 37-year-old man accused of shooting another man in a Walmart parking lot Thursday after he told investigators he was defending himself and his family during an attempted robbery.

“At this point, we’re leaning towards this being a self-defense type of incident,” Sgt. Jake Lancaster said.

Lancaster said the 37-year-old was eating lunch in his car with his girlfriend and her 16-year-old child in the Walmart parking lot at 1600 E. Chestnut Ave. before going grocery shopping. At just after 4 p.m., someone reportedly got out of a car parked behind them, opened the family’s car door and pointed a firearm at them.

“At that point, he was demanding money and then he was demanding they get out of their vehicle,” Lancaster said.

Lancaster said the 37-year-old driver produced his own firearm during the altercation, shot the unknown man multiple times and left the scene. He reportedly took his family to the nearby Target parking lot, called 911 to report the incident and waited for police to arrive.

Meanwhile, the 31-year-old man was being treated at the crime scene for gunshot wounds to the chest and neck. Police said the man may have died at the scene were it not for an AMR ambulance crew that was on break in the parking lot and responded seconds after the shooting.

“By the time they got there, he had stopped breathing and so they were rendering first aid CPR when the officers arrived,” Capt. Jay Seely said.

The man was taken to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital for emergency surgery, then transferred to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he remains in critical condition Friday night.

Investigators said they noticed what appeared to be drugs in the man’s vehicle, but are having to wait on a search warrant to be able to take a closer look. They do not believe the incident was gang-related.

Lancaster said after arriving at the Target parking lot, detectives took the 37-year-old man and his family to the police station for questioning. He said they did not arrest the man, who told investigators the shooting was self-defense.

“We have discussed this with the prosecutors but we’re still too early in the investigation to have made a full decision on whether or not charges will be filed,” Lancaster said. “Sometimes these things take a while and with the self defense claims, we’re going to have to do a lot more investigating.”

FedEx Driver Shot And Robbed, Returns Fire With Weapon, Suspect Dead

An unnamed 32-year-old Philadelphia FedEx driver had just dropped off a package at a home in Northeast Philadelphia on a Tuesday night when things took a terrifying turn. Shortly after 7 p.m., the FedEx driver, who was making a routine residential delivery in the city’s Lawndale neighborhood, was approached by an armed gunman, who stole items from his FedEx truck and reportedly took his wallet and keys.

The suspect then opened fire, shooting the driver in the abdomen, NBC 10 Philadelphia reported. The gunman likely wasn’t anticipating that the FedEx driver would also be armed, but the robbery suspect soon learned the hard way that the driver was prepared to defend himself. The attempted robbery quickly turned into a shoot out as the victim drew his own weapon and turned the tables.

After being confronted by a gunman and getting shot in the abdomen, the FedEx driver returned fire, hitting the suspect several times. Despite his injuries, the robbery victim was able to get into his truck and drive himself away from the scene. Meanwhile, the injured robber managed to escape with several stolen items.

As police received calls about shots fired in the area, the victim entered a nearby parking lot in his FedEx truck, where he was found by police and able to report what had happened. “He was able to tell police that he was making a delivery on the 600 block of Unruh and right when he got done making that delivery, he was approached by at least one male and he was robbed at point of gun,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small explained, according to CBS Philly.

“Initially, we did not know whether the perpetrator was struck by gunfire,” Small added, but they soon found out. Minutes after the Philadelphia FedEx driver told police what had happened, cops were called to the 1400 block of Creston Street, where they found the 27-year-old suspect in critical condition. He was reportedly located in a driveway with multiple gunshot wounds to his chest, back, and torso.

Near where the suspect was found, investigators also located a vehicle, containing some of the items that were stolen from the FedEx truck. In addition, police discovered blood and a shell casing inside the vehicle, and back on Unruh Avenue, where the shooting occurred, at least seven spent shell casings were found near where the package was delivered.

The suspect, who was later identified as Jevan Lundy by NBC 10 Philadelphia and who was discovered with the victim’s FedEx ID card, was transferred to the hospital. He died of his injuries, pronounced dead at 8:27 p.m. — less than an hour and a half after the armed robbery. The FedEx driver, on the other hand, was transported to Einstein Medical Center in stable condition.

Police later confirmed that the unnamed FedEx driver was licensed to carry and seemed to have acted in self-defense. “Based on the preliminary story that was relayed it appears to be self-defense: he was shot first, he fired back,” Acting Police Commissioner Christine Coulter said.

A second person of interest was located with the vehicle where Lundy was found. Police were investigating whether that person drove the robbery suspect from the shooting scene to where he was found. And, according to NBC, the man found with Lundy was believed to be the owner of the car, which they believe was used to drive Lundy away from the scene of the shooting

“He is speaking to us, of course not portraying that he had any involvement with this robbery,” Philadelphia Police Department Capt. Jason Smith said. The following day, a second suspect was taken into custody with police saying it was possible the unnamed male was an accomplice in the robbery.

Following the fatal shooting, FedEx, which was cooperating fully with the police, released a statement. They were asked whether drivers are allowed to carry firearms but said they are not at liberty to disclose details of their internal policies. “The safety of our team members is of paramount importance at FedEx,” the company’s statement said. “As such, we do not publicly disclose details relating to our security policies. As this incident remains an ongoing police investigation, we will have no further comment.”

While many might question whether an employee should be allowed to carry a firearm while on the job, this story seems to prove there are times where it absolutely is necessary for self-defense. Who knows what condition the FedEx driver might have been found in if he were unable to protect himself. Instead, he was able to defend himself against the suspect accused of attacking him.

TAMPA — A 16-year-old boy was shot and killed at Takomah Trail Park Tuesday after a group of people, including the teen, shot and robbed another person, according to the Tampa Police Department.

Detectives later learned that a group of people, including Thomas, robbed and shot a 32-year-old man at the park. The 32-year-old fired a weapon in response, hitting Thomas.

The 32-year-old had a concealed weapons permit and legally owned his gun, according to police.

The robbery victim and the remaining suspects had fled the park by the time officers arrived. The 32-year-old was found in another, unspecified location. He was taken to the hospital with injuries not believed to be life threatening. The man is cooperating with detectives, police said.
