Police: Shooting followed dispute
in Walmart checkout lines
WYNCOTE, Pa. (AP) — Police say a man pulled a gun during a dispute with another customer in Walmart checkout lines near Philadelphia and opened fire, wounding several people before fleeing but was later arrested after crashing into a police vehicle.
Cheltenham Township Police Chief John Frye says all victims sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the gunfire reported just after 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Cedarbrook Plaza Shopping Center.
Frye says two women in their 40s and a man in his 40s were wounded in the legs and another had a graze wound, while a fifth person later went to a hospital with unspecified injuries.
The male suspect and a female passenger fled, tossing the gun from the car, but ran into a police vehicle and were taken to hospitals along with two officers.
Bond decrease denied for men
accused of luring boy from home
OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi judge has kept bond at $600,000 each for two Illinois men accused of luring a 14-year-old boy away from his home through a video game-centered chat program.
News outlets report a judge denied the bond reduction requests Tuesday for 30-year-old Juan E. Andrade and 29-year-old Jason St. Aubin.
Authorities say the two face kidnapping and conspiracy charges for luring John Aubrey Peal III away from his Mississippi home on Aug. 1. Peal’s father, John Aubrey Peal II, says St. Aubin and Andrade spent months manipulating his son using the Discord application, convincing the boy that he was saving the men from killing themselves.
Peal resurfaced at an Illinois fire station four days after his disappearance. St. Aubin and Andrade were later arrested.
Both are set to appear in court Aug. 21.
