Two separate shootings occurred on the same street at the same time Monday in South Los Angeles, with teenagers struck by gunfire in both shootings, police said.
One shooting took place on the 1300 block of 59th Street at 7:45 p.m., the Los Angeles Police Department said. Two people walked up and opened fire, striking a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, the LAPD said.
Police set up a perimeter and believe the shooters possibly ran into two separate homes.
The condition of the two teenage victims was not immediately known.
The other shooting took place near the intersection of 59th Street and Normandie Avenue, which is less than a block away from the location of the first shooting, police said. The second shooting also took place at 7:45 p.m., police said.
A 15-year-old walking out of store was approached by an unknown gunman and shot in the foot. The victim ran home and called authorities, police said.
About a half hour before the aforementioned pair of shootings, a 43-year-old man was fatally shot near the intersection of Vermont Avenue and 95th Street in South Los Angeles at about 7:15 p.m. according to police, City News Service reported.
The man was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting.
Police in Alabama are hunting for a man believed to be armed and dangerous after a police officer was fatally shot and two others were injured in a trailer park Sunday night, NBC News report.
The suspect, Grady Wayne Wilkes, is “armed and definitely considered dangerous,” Auburn police Chief Paul Register said at a news conference, adding it was “probably the worst day of my time here.”
The officers were responding to a domestic disturbance at the Arrowhead Trailer Park when they were shot. The two injured officers are expected to recover, authorities said.
Wilkes was last seen at the trailer park wearing body armor over camo clothing and a helmet, according to an emergency blue alert activated by the state of Alabama. He is white, 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 219 pounds.
A Southern California mom who just found out she was pregnant with twins two weeks before suddenly gave birth to one of the babies on a staircase, with dad helping deliver the newborn boy Thursday.
Paramedics responded to the family’s townhome in the 80 block of Barnes Road in Tustin around 8:50 in the morning to find the father of the babies holding a newborn, Orange County Fire Authority’s Tony Bommarito said.
“My wife was yelling and screaming, ‘I’m having a baby!’ And I said, ‘We’re going to the hospital,'” Samir Rai said. “And she said, ‘no, I’m having it right now.'”
Rai said the couple had just found out that Jasmine was pregnant with two babies instead of one weeks before, to their astonishment.
Rai said he was juggling caring for his 2-year-old, while calling 911, when suddenly he saw the baby’s head pop out.
He had to help deliver the baby right there on the staircase.
But the surprises didn’t stop there.
After dad helped deliver one baby at home, paramedics cut the cord, and loaded the pregnant mom and baby into the ambulance.
That’s when baby No. 2 decided to make his entrance into the world — feet first — in the ambulance on the ride to Orange County Global Medical Center.
“It was a life-threatening emergency for the baby,” Bommarito said. “They were able to create an airway for the baby until the mother could push the baby completely out.”
The mother was said to be in critical condition, but is expected to recover. Both baby boys are said to be doing fine.
Jasmine and Samir still have to name their new twins. They only learned the same day they were having boys.
“It was a magical moment. One of craziest moments of my life. It hasn’t sunk in just yet. I’m just happy they are both healthy,” he said.
The father also said the first baby decided to make his entrance into the world — two weeks early, in fact — one hour before a doctor’s appointment the couple had scheduled for Thursday.
