Three teens held in connection to carjacking

Two 15-year-olds and 13-year-old are in custody connected to a carjacking Tuesday night.

 

The incident happened outside of a Dollar General store in Fairview Heights. A mother and her 7-year-old son say the suspects pulled a gun on them, demanded money, and sped off in her car. An officer in the area tried to stop the car, but the suspects did not stop. The driver lost control of the car and it slid off the road. After a brief manhunt, police captured the teens.

 

Police say all three teens had “airsoft guns,” which look like real guns. All three teens are being held in St. Clair County. One suspect was already on home confinement for a previous crime.

Police in Collinsville are asking for help to solve a series of robberies.

 

The suspects lure victims using a deal on Craigslist and then beat and rob the victims. Police say the most recent crime was on Tuesday night. The victim told officers he was responding to a post for a TV for sale. When the victim walked into the apartment, someone in a ski mask hit the victim with a bat and stole his money.

 

A similar robbery occurred at the same apartment building just two days earlier. No one was injured in that case. No suspects are in custody.

Franklin County man accused of murdering father

ST. CLAIR, Mo. (AP) — Police have charged a 33-year-old Franklin County man with first-degree murder in the death of his father.

The St. Louis-Post Dispatch reports that worried relatives found the body of 57-year-old William J. Osborn Thursday afternoon after forcing their way into his Lonedell home.

Franklin Sheriff Gary Toelke says William Patton Osborn had a volatile relationship with his father and had sold one of the elder Osborn's guns in St. Clair after the killing.

He is also charged with armed criminal action for allegedly stealing his father's truck, a motorcycle and firearms.

Osborn was jailed with a cash-only bond of $100,000. Online court records don't list an attorney on his behalf.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a suburban Denver student shot at least one other student at a high school Friday before he apparently turned the gun on himself.
 
   Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said the student was wounded when he confronted the gunman at Arapahoe High School in Centennial.
 
   He said officers found another injured student while securing the school.
 
   Littleton Adventist Hospital spokesman Jason Dunkel said a student was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
 
   Students were seen walking toward the school's running track with their hands in the air. Television footage showed students being patted down.
 
   The school is about 8 miles east of Columbine High School in Littleton, where two teenage shooters killed 12 classmates and a teacher before killing themselves in 1999.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a Kansas man accused of planning to detonate a car bomb at the Wichita airport has been arrested.
 
U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said 58-year-old Terry Lee Loewen was arrested Friday morning at Mid-Continent regional airport.
 
Grissom said the man planned to drive a car that he believed was full of explosives into a terminal at the airport.
 
Loewen was charged with one count each of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, attempting to damage property and attempting to provide support to the terrorist group al-Qaida.
 
Investigators say Loewen is an avionics technician who lives in Wichita and works at the airport. He had been under investigation for about six months after he made statements about wanting to commit "violent jihad" against the U.S.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Prosecutors will no longer seek the death penalty against a southwest Missouri man who is charged with killing a classmate.
 
Prosecutors said Wednesday that they dropped the possibility of capital punishment after 20-year-old Gabriel Roche of Republic agreed to have his case decided by a judge, not a jury.
 
Roche is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the December 2011 death of 17-year-old Weston North. Roche took his classmate to a secluded area and stabbed him before slitting his throat.
 
Prosecutors say Roche believed North was a police informant.
 
The Springfield News-Leader reports Roche's attorneys didn't dispute that their client killed North. They asked the judge to consider charging him with second-degree murder, arguing that Roche was on drugs and hallucinating during the killing.

Charges against George Zimmerman were dropped

MIAMI (AP) - Prosecutors say they will not file domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman after his girlfriend said in a sworn statement she did not want to pursue the case.

State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County said in a statement Wednesday that Samantha Scheibe's decision not to cooperate and the lack of other corroborating evidence made a successful prosecution unlikely.

Zimmerman had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following a Nov. 18 incident at the central Florida house he shared with Scheibe. She initially told police Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her face, then recanted in an affidavit filed this week.

Zimmerman was acquitted last summer in the shooting death of unarmed, black teenager Trayvon Martin. The case sparked a nationwide debate about race and self-defense laws.
