Mobile Police says the it happened Saturday night at 9:30 during a traffic stop. It happened on First Avenue at Hanes Street. The Sheriff’s Office says Lawrence Hawkins was shot by a Prichard Police Officer. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The sheriff’s office says there is no other further information at this time and more details will be released as the investigation continues. News 5 spoke witnesses about what happened. Latreisha Williams tells News 5 she witnessed the officer follow Lawrence to his house, “He (Hawkins) got out his truck, reached in there to get his cell phone. The police were saying something, and all i heard was pow… pow… pow.” Williams says the officer never turned on his police lights until after he shot Lawrence. Several other witnesses from on the scene tell News 5 the same thing.” (1070)

5 cases are considered noteworthy. Fugitive task force involved in fatal shooting near Hedgesville, W.Va. MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — “The U.S. Marshals Service Mountain State Fugitive Task Force was involved in a “line-of-duty” fatal shooting Thursday near Hedgesville, W.Va., Deputy U.S. Marshal Cole Barnhart said in a statement. The deceased was not identified … The shooting occurred while the agency was attempting to arrest a suspect with a warrant that had been obtained by the West Virginia State Police for armed robbery charges, Barnhart said. … the agency, as a matter of policy, does not release the names of deputy marshals involved in shooting incidents until the conclusion of all investigations.” (1062)

Investigation Underway After Fort Worth Police Vehicle Hits, Kills Pedestrian “Police confirmed Friday evening that one of their units traveling southbound on Hemphill Street hit and killed a man walking across the street. Neighbors near the crash scene say their area is a bigger safety concern. The pedestrian’s body ended up on Fernado Florez’s yard. The victim, ” Leopoldo Castaneda-Solis, “… died at the scene. A cross has been planted on Florez’s yard. He says he is sad about what happened but is not shocked. Florez claims the street lights will be on and then suddenly turn off in the middle of the night. “If I had to go to the store, even just a couple of blocks, I’d call a cab. I’m not crossing the street here because a lot of times these vehicles don’t have their lights on.” (1064)

Death of inmate at county jail under investigation “The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an inmate’s death at the county jail early Friday. Fort Walton Beach police had arrested Nathaniel Harrison Edwards, 31, … shortly after midnight on an outstanding warrant of felony battery-domestic violence, … During a search at the jail, Edwards was caught trying to conceal a plastic bag containing methamphetamine. The Sheriff’s Office then charged him with possession of a controlled substance and smuggling contraband into a detention facility. Edwards became combative about 3:50 a.m. and had to be physically controlled by corrections staff, according to jail officials. Edwards became unresponsive and was taken to North Okaloosa Medical Center in Crestview, where he was pronounced dead.” (1065)

Two dead in stolen pickup after deputies open fire “… Sheriff Manuel Gonzales said the incident started around 3:50 a.m. when the BCSO helicopter spotted a white pickup truck that had been reported stolen. Albuquerque police officers had encountered the truck earlier in the night, but a spokesman did not have any information about it. North Valley-area command deputies responded to the report and tried to stop the truck. “They actually got out ahead of this and deployed a spike belt that was successful in spiking the vehicle,” Gonzales said. But, he said, the truck didn’t stop and instead continued to flee from authorities, driving erratically near Coors and Interstate 40. Deputies performed a “pursuit intervention technique” – in which a cruiser hits a fleeing vehicle to get it to stop – in a nearby neighborhood, and the truck came to a standstill about a quarter mile away on Coors and Glenrio NW. “Subsequently the deputies felt threatened,” Gonzales said. “We don’t know how many shots were fired.” Two people were found dead in the truck, and two people exited safely and were taken into custody, he said. He did not identify the people who were killed and did not know how old they were. He also did not identify the people who were taken into custody. Gonzales did not know why the deputies had felt threatened or if any shots had been fired at them.” (1066/1067)

Officer Involved Shooting in Klamath Falls “Police say earlier in the day at 4:30 p.m. officers and detectives from the Klamath Falls Police Department investigated an attempted murder incident at a home in Klamath Falls. They say during the investigation, officers developed probable cause to arrest the suspect for Attempted Muder, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Burglary in the first degree, Menacing, Assault in the fourth degree, and Reckless Endangering. Police say the suspect fled the residence prior to the arrival of law enforcement. Police say at 9:35 p.m. they contacted the suspect in the 2100 block of Darrow Drive and the shooting happened. The names of the officer and suspect are not being released at this time.” “Matthew David Borner, 52, was wanted on an outstanding felony warrant and suspected of stealing a vehicle when he was contacted by Klamath Falls police officers just after 8:30 a.m., a press release from the district attorney’s office said. A confrontation ensued and Borner was shot by one or more officers. District Attorney Rob Patridge could not say whether Borner had a weapon, or if one was fired, citing the fact that the investigation is ongoing.” (1079)
