2 North Carolina fugitives arrested in Florida

Two men wanted by North Carolina authorities were found hiding in a Florida home and were arrested after a weapons standoff with a SWAT team early Sunday, The Tampa Bay Times reported.

The men were armed with an AR-15, a machete and a pipe bomb, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.

Donald “Alfred” Billings, 30, and Alton Otto Smoot, 26, were charged with attempted first-degree murder on law enforcement and felony conspiracy to commit first-degree murder on law enforcement, the Sheriff’s Office said. Billings also was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, and Smoot was charged with aggravated assault with a gun and fleeing law enforcement, deputies said.

"These guys are bad people, and they were engaged in activity where they were willing to shoot it out with a cop," Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri told the Times.

On Aug. 11, North Carolina deputies tried to pull over a vehicle registered to Billings, the newspaper reported. Billings, and Smoot, who was a passenger, drove away and fired at the deputies with a handgun and an AR-15 rifle, according to Alleghany County deputies.

On Aug. 17, U.S. marshals told Pinellas County officials that the men were in Florida, WTVT reported. Pinellas County authorities learned that Billings’ ex-girlfriend Tiffany McCord, 34, lived in Treasure Island. After conducting surveillance near McCord’s apartment, they arrested Smoot on Saturday, the Times reported.

Detectives learned that Billings was inside McCord’s apartment and armed with a machete, a handgun, a .223 caliber AR-15 and a pipe bomb that he made using black power, metal and a detonator cord, BayNews9 reported. 

Billings, who served jail time in North Carolina on a drug conviction in 2003 and 2004, told witnesses he was not going back to prison and would shoot it out with police, the Times reported.

Deputies used tear gas and a fire broke out, the newspaper reported.

“As we were still attempting to enter the apartment, a fire broke out in the apartment. We don't know if he set the fire or what happened. The fire department was already on standby, they were able to extinguish the fire. SWAT team members entered, and found billings on the floor," Gualtieri said at a news conference.

Deputies found Billings severely burned with two AR-15 magazines on him, the Sheriff’s Office reported.

Authorities took Billings to a hospital, the Times reported

Direct from Springfield: ‘The Simpsons’ Kwik-E-Mart opens in Myrtle Beach

Real life is mimicking the shows we have watched for almost 30 years as a real Kwik-E-Mart has opened up shop. 

But the convenience store modeled on the one from “The Simpsons” isn’t in Springfield, Ohio, Springfield, Virginia, or any of the dozens of Springfield towns or townships, in the United States. 

It’s actually located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, WBTW reported.

The Kwik-E-Mart opened last week at Broadway at the Beach.

It has tons of Simpsons memorabilia for sale and also has food items inspired by the show like Squishees and Lard Lad Donuts. There’s even Duff on the shelves, but it isn’t beer, but rather non-alcoholic energy drinks, WBTW reported.

The store will serve as the endof the line for fans who are leaving the Aztec Theater when it opens later this year. 

The theater is also inspired by “The Simpsons” and will feature a Simpsons 4D movie experience, WBTW reported

Teacher suspended over pole dancing video

A North Carolina teacher says she was suspended because the district found out she's a part-time pole dancing instructor.

Kandice Mason works West Hoke County Middle School in Raeford. She posted a video of her dancing on her private Facebook page. The school district found out about it and suspended her.

>> Read more trending news 

“I was really excited,” Mason told WSOC. “I had already been given my classroom.”

The single mother of two has a masters in psychology, bachelors in English and a certificate in phlebotomy.

She’s also a self-taught pole dancer, using it to unwind in her home after long days in the classroom.

“That’s how I stay in shape,” Mason said. “That’s how I feel like I can express myself and have time for myself.”

Hoke County Schools would not specify why Mason was suspended but cited a policy that says employees should be role models even when they're not at work.

“I’ve worked so hard to try and make sure I can provide for my daughters and our livelihood to have it jeopardized just for doing something that I’m passionate about,” Mason said.

Mason has been suspended with pay pending an investigation.

“I’ve never felt ashamed of pole dancing. It's just an art for me,” Mason said “I just don’t see it as negative.”

Her case could go before the school board, which would have the final say.

Teen who 'made it to see 17' killed 1 hour after social media post

A St. Louis teen posted on social media Saturday that he was “just glad I can say I made it to see 17.” Slightly more than an hour later, he was shot to death, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Armond Latimore was shot in the head around 1 p.m. Saturday -- his birthday -- outside a restaurant, the newspaper reported. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Latimore’s mother, Chandra D. Payne, said her son wanted nothing elaborate for his birthday, just asking for ice cream to accompany the cake he was having.

“I went to Save A Lot and three minutes later I received the call,” Payne told the Post-Dispatch.

Police have not released information about a suspect or motive.

Latimore was a sophomore in high school. After the shooting, Payne said she found a paper her son wrote for school about a bully who was harassing him, the Post-Dispatch reported. However, Payne said her son never mentioned a bully, and Latimore’s father and siblings did not know of any problems the teen was having.

On Facebook, Latimore had posted a photo of himself holding a large amount of money; his mother responded by telling him to “take this pic down.” There are other photos with the boy holding more cash (“Win some you lose some,” he wrote on one post). Another photo showed the teen with what looked to be a handgun in his pocket and his comment, “The devil want my soul” with the hashtag #InGodITrust.

Payne told the Post-Dispatch that Latimore never owned a gun, and the money was not his. She described him as “a helping-hand child.”

“He would cut grass, wash your car or sell water,” Payne told the newspaper. “He loved music and loved money and always made it the right way.”

Harvey Collins of St. Louis told the Post-Dispatch that Latimore helped move his daughter into her dorm at Harris-Stowe State University two hours before his death.

“I can’t believe that a couple hours later he was dead,” Collins told the newspaper. “That’s a crying shame.”

Husband said he didn’t realize wife fell overboard off sailboat, woman rescued hours later

A Rhode Island man said he had no idea that his wife was missing after she apparently fell overboard from their sailboat in Narragansett Bay Friday afternoon. 

The couple, who was not identified, was on the way from Newport, Rhode Island to East Greenwich, Rhode Island, The Associated Press reported.

The woman was found on Prudence Island by a passing boater who heard her crying for help around 4 a.m. Saturday, hours after she apparently fell.

The woman had mild hypothermia but refused treatment, The Providence Journal reported.

The woman’s husband was found about two hours earlier, at 2 a.m. after he ran the boat aground. He told police that he didn’t know his wife was missing and that he thought she was sleeping below deck, the AP reported. He said the last he had seen his wife was earlier in the afternoon, the Journal reported.

The incident is under investigation.

“The story’s a little cloudy,” Coast Guard Petty Officer Sam Van Lent told the Journal.

Texas shooting: 2 dead, including suspect, after employee opens fire at food warehouse, police say

A woman opened fire on her co-workers during an overnight shift at a food warehouse in Texas early Monday, killing one person and injuring another.

Authorities said the suspect also died after getting into a shootout with a responding officer, but it was not immediately clear if she was killed by a police bullet or a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Update 9:20 a.m. EDT Aug. 20: Authorities told KTRK the woman suspected of opening fire at the Ben E. Keith Foods facility in Missouri City was an employee who starting shooting just before 2:30 a.m. Monday in the facility’s warehouse. At the time, between 20 and 25 people were working in the warehouse, Missouri City Police Chief Mike Berezin said Monday at a news conference.

Berezin said the shooting took place during an overnight shift. Two employees were shot, one fatally, according to KTRK. The surviving victim suffered a gunshot wound to his leg, the news station reported.

Berezin declined to identify the victims or suspect in the case or confirm reports from KTRK and KHOU that the slain victim was an overnight manager at the facility.

An officer confronted the shooter outside the warehouse Monday morning and fired at least one shot at the woman, but it was not immediately clear if the bullet hit her.

“Whether or not the shooter was actually hit by one of the officer's bullets or whether it was self-inflicted, we don't know at this point,” Berezin said.

The officer was not injured.

“The officer is doing very well right now, considering the circumstances,” Berezin said.

Authorities continue to investigate.

Original report: According to KHOU, police said a woman fired shots before 3 a.m. CDT at the Ben E. Keith Foods facility in Missouri City, killing one person at the scene. Another person was injured and is being treated at a nearby hospital.

KHOU reported that the shooter “suffered a gunshot wound when she was confronted by police outside the facility,” authorities said. Officers didn’t know whether she was hurt while exchanging gunfire with police or if she shot herself. She was taken to the hospital, where she died, police said.

‘Fur-ternity leave’ offered at Minnesota company

Having a new bundle of joy at home necessitates taking time off to make sure everyone is settled into the new routine. 

Apparently at one company in Minnesota, it doesn’t matter if it is the two-legged human variety or a four-legged animal one.

Nina Hale, a digital marketing company that is based in Minneapolis, has started a program called “fur-ternity” leave.

Connor McCarthy, a senior accounts manager at the company, adopted a Goldendoodle named Bentley. As a puppy parent, he wanted a few days off to get Bentley comfortable in his new home. 

>> Read more trending news 

“So I just discussed if there was any way that we could have adjustments to my schedule ... to allow me to at least be with the puppy while still working,” McCarthy told Minnesota Public Radio.

The lead of McCarthy’s team, Allison McMenimen, said that McCarthy’s request for his schedule adjustment was approved and that it showed company leaders that fur babies were important to their employees as children.

“We realized that we had received these requests a couple of times, and we thought, for so many of our hardworking, dedicated employees, there’s an opportunity for us to reciprocate their dedication and give them additional flexibility when they’re making a major life change. And in this case, instead of a human baby, it’s a fur baby,” McMenimen told MPR

The company eventually introduced an official company benefits package with “fur-ternity leave” spelled out.

McCarthy said that the time off worked out for his family.

“I think it was great. Within a couple of weeks, he was potty-trained. I was able to help out with that.” McCarthy told MPR. “He was a lot more at ease, and you could tell that he was getting used to being in this new environment because he had somebody there with him throughout the first week.”

“Looking back to the past, no effort to beg pardon and to seek to repair the harm done will ever be sufficient,” said the letter, which the Vatican released Monday. “Looking ahead to the future, no effort must be spared to create a culture able to prevent such situations from happening, but also to prevent the possibility of their being covered up and perpetuated.”

In his letter, Pope Francis said Catholics must “acknowledge and condemn, with sorrow and shame, the atrocities perpetrated by consecrated persons, clerics, and all those entrusted with the mission of watching over and caring for those most vulnerable.”

He wrote: “Let us beg forgiveness for our own sins and the sins of others. An awareness of sin helps us to acknowledge the errors, the crimes and the wounds caused in the past and allows us, in the present, to be more open and committed along a journey of renewed conversion.”

Florida alpaca dies after motorist feeds it Doritos, Cheese Nips, peanuts

A Florida animal hospital announced the death of a beloved community alpaca Saturday on Facebook.

>> See the Facebook post here

Creekside Animal Hospital in Fleming Island wrote: "It is with a heavy heart that we want to inform our clients and friends at [Swimming Pen Creek Elementary] that our youngest alpaca that was born out on the shared field over a year ago has passed away."

According to the post, a man in a blue car is responsible for the death of the alpaca.

The animal hospital said he would dump food onto the field multiple times a week and that they had spoken to him multiple times.

Most recently, he left three boxes of animal crackers, a large bag of Doritos, two boxes of Cheese Nips and two bags of whole peanuts, the animal hospital said.

The animal hospital said the man "leaves the litter behind every single time and we clean it up."

The post said this was the first time peanuts were dumped, and the youngest alpaca overindulged.

The hospital said it did everything they could for him, even a blood transfusion from his father, but the young alpaca died nonetheless. 

The animal hospital said it "worked on him for 36 hours and just couldn't bring him back."

Employees with the animal hospital said they are now in fear for the rest of the herd, including the goats.

They said they will likely be moving them to a new location because they have no way to protect them from the man with the blue car.
