ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) - We are learning more about the fatal shooting of a 14-year-old girl in Monroe County that law enforcement says was committed by her 9-year-old brother.
"He went over and got a gun out and come up behind her and shot her," said Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell, who says the Saturday shooting at the children's home in Wren was triggered by Dijonae White not letting her brother have a video game controller.
Cantrell says the two siblings were playing the game when the shooting happened.
According to the sheriff, the gun belongs to the mother's husband and two other children were in the home at the time of the shooting. The mother was in the kitchen.
There's no word if any adults will be charged in connection with the shooting.
White was a student and basketball player at Tupelo Middle School, and the school district is offering counseling and bereavement support to any student or staff who needs it.
It was originally reported the girl was 13-years-old, but Coroner Alan Gurley says she is 14 since she was born in September 2003.
White also attended LifeCulture Ministry in Tupelo.
Her pastor says he and other members of the church are still shocked by White's passing.
"We still can't put it together," Pastor Charles Moore said. "The reality of it is we know she is not here anymore but just to accept it is still hard."
Moore was at the hospital with White and her family. He says her teammates and coach were there too and he encouraged them to talk to her.
"They routed the team for the last hooray with De before she took her last heartbeat."
Moore says White was full of life.
He also says her funeral is tentatively Sunday but he does not know all of the details. He says the members of the church will be in attendance. Submitted by Talitha.
An Indiana mother admitted in court last Friday to fatally stabbing her two children because she feared her husband would take them away after he filed for divorce.
Brandi Worley, 31, of Darlington, pleaded guilty to two counts of murder. Worley murdered her son, Tyler Worley, 7, and her daughter, Charlee Worley, 3, in the early morning hours of Nov. 17, 2016.
She told the dispatcher in a monotone voice, “I just stabbed myself and killed my two children.
Melo Hairapetian was trimming wood one day when the unthinkable happened: in a matter of seconds, the saw made a quick and powerful cut across the palm of his hand.
His thumb was gone and his pinky was dangling. “My knee buckled, caught my jacket and pulled my hand right through the circular saw,” Melo said.
Doctors tried to salvage his thumb, but it didn’t take because the finger and joint were too badly damaged.
A few months later, the 45-year-old opted for Plan B, a rare procedure to replace the missing thumb with one of his own toes. “I need a thumb. I can’t live with just three fingers on one hand.
You can’t do anything. You can’t pick up, you can’t brush your teeth, you can’t put deodorant on, can’t do a button, can’t do a zipper. I knew right away I had to have it,”Melo said.
A relic galaxy is a rare and mysterious assemblage of stars, that has remained unchanged for the past 10 billion years. The discovery could provide key insights into the origin and evolution of galaxies billions of years ago. The galaxy, which NASA has named NGC 1277, churned out stars 1,000 times faster than seen in our own Milky Way, shortly after it formed. But it quickly became inactive, as the stars aged and grew red.
A suspect in a series of terrifying parcel bombings in Austin, Texas, blew himself up in his car as a heavily-armed police SWAT team moved in to arrest him.
Officers were following the suspect's car on a motorway when the 24-year-old man came to a stop in a ditch and then killed himself when he detonated an explosive device, police confirmed.
A SWAT team member approaching the car was knocked back and injured when the bomb went off just a few feet away.
Another officer then shot at the suspect - named by US media as Mark Anthony Conditt - moments before officers moved closer and confirmed that he was dead.
Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told reporters: "The suspect is deceased and has significant injuries from a blast which occurred from detonating a bomb inside his vehicle."
The bombing campaign had terrorised residents for three weeks and news of the suspect's death brought a sense of relief to the state capital, although police are still investigating whether unexploded devices are still out there and whether the man had accomplices.
The suspect believed to be responsible for a series of bombings in Texas has been killed following a confrontation with Austin's Police SWAT team.
"The suspect is deceased and has significant injuries from detonating a bomb inside his vehicle," Interim Police Chief Brian Manley told reporters early on Wednesday morning.
"As members of the Austin PD SWAT team approached the vehicle, the suspect detonated a bomb inside the vehicle, knocking one our squad officers back and one of our squad officers fired at him as well."
Manley said the suspect had not been positively identified as of yet, but said he was a 24-year-old white male. He added that the community should stay vigilant, suggesting that there could be other suspect packages outstanding.
Facebook is portraying itself as shocked after a whistleblower is exposing just how easy the social network makes it for firms like his former employer, Cambridge Analytica, to take users' private data and exploit it in virtually unlimited ways. But according to President Obama's former digital director, the social network told the campaign they knew its users' data were being improperly seized by the campaign in 2012, but they chose to look the other way because Facebook supports Obama. The Canadian born techie turned whistleblower, Christopher Wylie, said Cambridge Analytica, was able to create a personality profile users voluntarily took, but which inadvertently gave access to the quiz takers' entire social network. The survey that began with just 270,000 people ultimately ended up collecting data on more than 50 million people.
Facebook says this mass collection of its users' data violated its terms and asked Cambridge Analytica to delete the data. However, Wylie told NBC, "Facebook never checked to make sure that happened." President Obama's 2012 campaign poineered the exploitation of Facebook to harvest its users personal information. The co-founder of Engage D.C., Patrick Ruffini, who covered the story at the time, detailed how the campaign tricked users into unwittingly forking over to the campaign data on their peers. Ruffini posted a graphic from his original report detailing how this Facebook data helped the Obama campaign: Forms like this enabled Obama for America to harvest friends of friends' data. via Patrick Ruffini
The former director of Obama for America's Integration and Media Analytics, Carol Davidsen, candidly admitted that Facebook acknowledged letting their campaign improperly access its users data. "Facebook was surprised we were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing," Davidsen wrote Sunday night after news of Cambridge Analytica broke. "They came to office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side." The Obama project was code named tärgus and was covered by TIME Magazine at the time.
Facebook's attitude toward the Trump-aligned Cambridge Analytica was decidedly different. After news reports surfaced late last week that showed how the firm was able to exploit the social media platform, Facebook banned both Cambridge Analytica and its former staffer Wylie from the platform. "In 2015, we learned that a psychology professor at the University of Cambridge named Dr. Aleksandr Kogan lied to us and violated our Platform Policies by passing data from an app that was using Facebook Login to SCL/Cambridge Analytica, a firm that does political, government and military work around the globe," Facebook wrote in a blog post Friday night. "He also passed that data to Christopher Wylie of Eunoia Technologies, Inc."
"Several days ago, we received reports that, contrary to the certifications we were given, not all data was deleted," Facebook wrote. "We are moving aggressively to determine the accuracy of these claims. If true, this is another unacceptable violation of trust and the commitments they made. We are suspending SCL/Cambridge Analytica, Wylie and Kogan from Facebook, pending further information.
GAETZ: “This was not Andrew McCabe and James Comey acting alone. The testimony that Andrew McCabe has given makes me believe that there were people at the Department of Justice who were paving the way for Hillary Clinton. There’s evidence for that Kennedy. If you look at the key Hillary Clinton confidants, people like Susan Rice, who got immunity deals that never should have been given by the Department of Justice. You had DOJ making sure that anybody that could incriminate Hillary Clinton got immunity so that they would have every reason not to tell the truth about Hillary and I think that’s one of the reasons why she never faced a criminal consequence.”
Mark Levin: Here’s the big story, “The Obama administration did more to interfere with our election than the loathsome Vladimir Putin. Whether it’s unmasking, whether it’s Susan Rice refusing to allow the cyberspace folks to investigate. The Obama administration did more to interfere with our election than the Russians. That’s the story.
THIS is the horrifying moment a vampire baby doll started STARING at passers-by after mysteriously appearing on an unmarked tombstone in Mexico.
Horrifying footage appears to show the bloodstained puppet following a camera with its eyes.
The doll was found with a bottle of blood next to it after appearing in the unknown cemetery overnight.
The video has since gone viral on social media, and racked up more than 350,000 views.
One horrified user dubbed it 'The Doll of The Devil'.
But others urged viewers not to be taken in by the terrifying puppet.
MSNBC host Chris Matthews has a well-known reputation for being rather eccentric and Monday night’s “Trump Watch” on Hardball was no exception. After complaining about Special Counsel Robert Mueller going “soft” on President Trump for most of the program, Matthews capped it off by oddly championing Mueller as a “starfish” caught in a “battle to the death” with Trump the “clam.” -- “Mueller reminds me of the starfish which gets itself tightly around the clam and uses all its stuff to weaken and pry open the clam. Now, this is a battle to the death as far as the clam is concerned,” Matthews opined. He had a big smile on his face as he described the starfish’s persistence in prying open the shell of the mollusk, saying, “He is the starfish's lunch!”
Matthews boasted about observing a number of starfish (special counsels) over the years and noted: “Their purpose in life is to open the clam.” “Robert Mueller is a perfect example of a starfish. He will not stop until he has gotten Trump to open up,” he continued before wrapping up the show by asking: “Does anyone think this is going to end well for the clam?” This bloviating about Mueller trying to eat Trump for lunch oddly came about after Matthews spent much of the show whining about how the special counsel was going easy on the President. From near the start of the program, Matthews was confused about why the special counsel would treat the President with respect and negotiate when and what an interview would be about. (…)
“A lot has been going on in our government, “ Louis Farrakhan said. “Good people, like Maxine Waters…good people are in the Congress,” Farrakhan told the crowd at the Nation of Islam Annual Convention in 2002.
In a bit of must-see TV, conservative icon and Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources this Sunday to debate host Brian Stelter on the topic of the media’s liberal bias. As would be expected, Shapiro wiped the floor with Stelter as he called out CNN for blatantly pushing a gun control agenda and not being objective. After being asked by Stelter to address where he saw the greatest example of liberal media bias, Shapiro homed in on their uniform calls for gun control and gun bands. “Well, over the last three weeks, obviously the coverage of the gun debate has been absolutely egregious,” he said. “And I don't want to single out your network, but CNN has been pretty bad about this, from a conservative perspective.”
Shapiro noted that most media outlets only allowed anti-gun survivors of the Parkland shooting to be heard extensively across all their programs, which was true even for Stelter. The CNN host had brought on anti-gun student David Hogg to smear gun rights advocates while ignoring pro-gun survivor Kyle Kashuv. “They allow certain people to go on TV and suggest that folks like Dana Loesch or people at the NRA are evil, don't care, they’re terrorists, and there is no pushback from the anchors. This sort of thing makes a lot of people on the right feel that the media are really using this as an opportunity to push gun control…,” Shapiro explained. (…)

“That’s not going to happen,” Clinton said.
“No?” the interviewer responded.
“No,” Clinton said, shaking her head. “No, we don’t want any more inexperienced Trumps in the White House.”
Host Eva Jinek said she’s learned elections can bring the unexpected.
“Well, that’s true, but you know, fool me once shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. And I think the American people have seen for themselves what happens when a reality-TV candidate wins,” Clinton said.
“I really believe there’s an enormous amount of pent-up energy to take the country back from the Trump administration,” Clinton said.

Worried about catching a cold or the flu on an airplane? Get a window seat, and don’t leave it until the flight is over.
That’s what some experts have been saying for years, and it’s perhaps the best advice coming out of a new attempt to determine the risks of catching germs on an airplane.
It turns out there’s been little research on the risks of catching a cold or flu during air travel. Some experts believed that sitting in a window seat would keep a passenger away from infectious people who may be on the aisle or moving around.
The new study, published Monday, came to the same conclusion.
For somebody who doesn’t want to get sick, “get in that window seat and don’t move,” the study’s lead researcher, Vicki Stover Hertzberg of Emory University in Atlanta.
The study was ambitious: Squads of researchers jetted around the U.S. to test cabin surfaces and air for viruses and to observe how people came into contact with each other.
But it also had shortcomings. In a total of 10 flights, they observed only one person coughing. And though the experiment was done during a flu season five years ago, they didn’t find even one of 18 cold and flu viruses they tested for.
Mississippi moved quickly toward a legal confrontation over the nation's most restrictive abortion law Monday.
Within six hours, the governor signed a bill banning most abortions after 15 weeks of gestation, the state's lone abortion clinic sued, and a federal judge set a Tuesday morning hearing to consider blocking the restrictions.
Abortion opponents sought the confrontation, hoping federal courts will ultimately prohibit abortions before a fetus is viable. Current federal law blocks such restrictions by states.
Some legal experts have said a change in the law is unlikely unless the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court changes in a way that favors abortion opponents.
An 87-year-old priest was in Stony Brook University Hospital on Tuesday after he was violently beaten and robbed in his own home on Long Island.
As police search for clues, friends are looking for answers, CBS2’s Marc Liverman reported Tuesday.
A small, quiet community was transformed into a crime scene on Sunday. Parts of Oak Tree Lane on Shelter Island were closed off for a police investigation after officers found the priest beat up in his home. Whoever attacked him also stole from him before taking off.
“The people who attacked him, on a personal level, they’re evil because who would attack such a … I mean the man is a real nice man,” a friend named “Kirk” said.
The Episcopal Diocese of Long Island identified the priest as Paul Wancura. Kirk said Wancura is a supply priest where he comes to pray at the Episcopal Church of the Messiah in Central Islip.
“He’s somebody that you could really talk to. When you have a problem you can go to come and talk to him. You have no issues. He’s real nice,” Kirk said.
CNN asked the teenager if he could stay on the phone!… as he leaves the classroom!
CNN doing live interview with student on lockdown at the Maryland high school where school shooting was reported. He says he has to go b/c police are at the door. CNN asks if he can stay on phone even as he leaves. Strange new reality in real time reporting w/technology.
A student pulled out a gun and shot two other students at a high school in southeast Maryland Tuesday morning before the shooter was killed, the St. Mary’s County sheriff says.
The student entered Great Mills High School in Great Mills at the beginning of the school day and shot a female student in a hallway, Sheriff Tim Cameron told News4. A male student also was hit by a bullet.
The female student is in critical condition, the male student is in stable condition and the shooter, a male, has died, the sheriff said.
Information was not available immediately on the relationship between the students, Cameron said. A motive is not yet clear.
During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing this week on Capitol Hill, FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich revealed the Obama Justice Department purged more than 500,000 fugitives from the federal gun background check system.
"It's my understanding that under federal law fugitives cannot legal purchase or possess guns. We heard from local law enforcement that the Justice Department has issued a memo that forced the FBI NICS background check data base to drop more than 500,000 names of fugitives with outstanding arrest warrants because it was uncertain whether those fugitives fled across state lines. Mr. Bowdich can you describe why this determination was made by the Justice Department?" Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein asked.
"That was a decision that was made under the previous administration. It was the Department of Justice's Legal Counsel that reviewed the law and believed that it needed to be interpreted so that if someone was a fugitive in a state, there had to be indications they had cross state lines. Otherwise they were not known to be a fugitive under the law in the way it was interpreted," Bowdich responded.
A statue of the Virgin Mary was beheaded in Port Jefferson Station over the weekend, according to Suffolk County Police.
The statue was vandalized at the Church of Saint Majella in Port Jefferson Station sometime between Friday and Sunday.
Investigators are treating the matter as a hate crime.
A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
Californians may still love the beautiful weather and beaches, but more and more they are fed up with the high housing costs and taxes and deciding to flee to lower-cost states such as Nevada, Arizona and Texas.
"There's nowhere in the United States that you can find better weather than here," said Dave Senser, who lives on a fixed income near San Luis Obispo, California, and now plans to move to Las Vegas. "Rents here are crazy, if you can find a place, and they're going to tax us to death. That's what it feels like. At least in Nevada they don't have a state income tax. And every little bit helps."
Senser, 65, who previously lived in the east San Francisco Bay region, said housing costs and gas prices are "significantly lower in Las Vegas. The government in the state of California isn't helping people like myself. That's why people are running out of this state now."
Orange County’s second-smallest city voted Monday night to exempt itself from California’s so-called sanctuary law, which limits cooperation between local agencies and federal immigration authorities.
The Los Alamitos City Council voted 4-1 following more than two hours of heated testimony from residents on both sides of the issue.
While the crowd had dwindled both in and outside the chamber when the vote came, people erupted in cheers after the vote and began chanting “USA.” But on the pro-immigrant rights side, there was this chant: “The people united, will never be divided.”
Someone shouted out to Councilman Warren Kusumoto, who introduced the legislation, “great American patriot!” while someone else screamed out “America first.”
Oceans on Mars formed 300 million years earlier than first thought, according to a new study.
Research suggests the planet's water systems appeared after a series of massive volcanic eruptions permanently altered the planet's surface around 4 billion years ago.
The formation of Mars's oceans was linked to the violent rise of Tharsis, a 3,000-mile- (5,000km)-wide string of volcanoes that make up the solar system's largest volcanic system.
Tharsis likely spewed gases into the atmosphere that created a global warming or greenhouse effect, which allowed liquid water to exist on the planet.
A Chinese airline has denied rumors that its flight attendants were filmed engaging in a hotel room orgy after footage was posted on social media last week.
On Wednesday, a series of videos emerged on Weibo, a popular Chinese microblogging platform, which showed at least six nude men and women dancing, grinding and laughing in a room.
The video quickly went viral, and soon after, rumors emerged that the orgy occurred in Madrid and the people involved were flight attendants for China Eastern Airlines or its subsidiary, Shanghai Airlines, the Shanghaiist reported.
In a document that was allegedly compiled by the airline, the company denied that their employees were the people featured in the video, suggested it was filmed in Africa and said that the people who created it deliberately did so to damage their reputation.
