Man armed with BB gun shoots at theater crowd; No injuries

By – Associated Press – Friday, November 23, 2018

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Authorities say a man armed with a BB gun started firing shots into a crowd outside an entertainment venue in Pittsburgh, but no injuries were reported.

The shooting at the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts occurred around 7 p.m. Wednesday, shortly before a performance of “Fiddler on the Roof.”

Witnesses say 29-year-old city resident Andre Freeman Jr., who was dressed all in black, began waving a BB gun near the theater entrance and soon started firing at the crowd gathered on the sidewalk. But the site’s chief security officer soon tackled Freeman and held him until police arrived.

A motive for the shooting wasn’t immediately known.

Freeman faces numerous counts, including risking a catastrophe and discharging a firearm or airgun. It’s not known if he’s retained an attorney.

Man Stabbed During Pusha T Concert in Toronto

By The Associated Press

  • TORONTO — One person has life-threatening injuries after a stabbing at a Pusha T concert in Toronto.
  • Toronto Police Constable David Hopkinson said Wednesday three others were treated at a hospital for minor injuries at the Danforth Music Hall late Tuesday. Hopkinson said the patient who was stabbed remains in critical condition.

    Video on social media shows drinks being hurled onstage toward Pusha T and fights breaking out as some people charge the stage.

    Hopkinson said someone rushed the stage and several people were injured in resulting melees, but it’s unclear whether the stabbing victim was wounded inside or outside the venue. Police didn’t find out someone was stabbed until they noticed someone with serious stab wounds at a local hospital.

    Man charged with bringing gun to Soldier Field during Bears, Vikings game


    A 57-year-old convicted felon is facing weapon charges after he allegedly brought a loaded gun to Sunday night’s Chicago Bears game against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Security at Soldier Field was alerted about the weapon shortly before 7:30 p.m. when Levi Flemister walked through a metal detector at the stadium, Cook County prosecutors said.

    Chicago police were called after Flemister handed over the .38-caliber revolver loaded with two live rounds.

    Flemister was charged with unlawful use of a weapon and could also face a charge of being an armed habitual criminal, prosecutors said at a bond hearing Monday at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse.

    An assistant public defender said Flemister had taken someone else’s coat and did not realize the gun was in the pocket.  Flemister likely would not have tried to walk through security if he was attempting to sneak the gun inside, the defense attorney said.

    Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke questioned how Flemister did not feel the weight on the gun in his pocket when he put the coat on.

    The assistant public defender responded by saying that the gun was a lightweight “derringer-style” revolver with only two rounds.

    Flemister, a life-long resident of Cook County, is an honorably discharged Army veteran, the attorney added.

    Prosecutors said Flemister is not allowed to possess the weapon because of his previous felony convictions for armed robbery and vehicular hijacking.

    Those convictions were more than 15 years old, Flemister’s assistant public defender noted.

    Lyke said he was particularly concerned about Flemister’s criminal history in light of the charge.

    “What’s more disturbing to me is his background,” Lyke said in considering bail.

    Lyke ultimately denied Flemister bail, but said his ruling could be reconsidered at the next hearing.

    British intel faulted for ignoring red flags prior to bombing at Ariana Grande concert

    By Andrew Blake – The Washington Times – Saturday, November 24, 2018

    British officials investigating the suicide bombing that killed 22 people attending an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena last year have found multiple failures on the part of U.K. intelligence that could have potentially prevented the deadly terrorist attack from happening.

    The U.K. Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee concluded in a report published Thursday that the MI5 security agency was aware of the suspected suicide bomber, Salman Abedi, for several years leading up to the May 2017 attack.

    Abedi, 22, initially came to MI5’s attention in late 2010 over his ties to another person of interest, and he remained on the agency’s radar as recently as two months before the attack, the committee’s investigation uncovered.

    “What we can say is that there were a number of failures in the handling of Salman Abedi’s case and while it is impossible to say whether these would have prevented the devastating attack, we have concluded that, as a result of the failings, potential opportunities to prevent it were missed,” said Dominic Grieve, the committee’s chairman.

    “MI5 have since admitted that given the information they had on Abedi, they should have done so, and they have now revisited their policies in this respect,” said Mr. Grieve, a Conservative representing Beaconsfield in the U.K. House of  Commons.

    The British-born son of Libyan parents, officials alleged that Abedi detonated a homemade bomb in the foyer of Manchester Arena during the pop concert on May 22, 2017, killing nearly two-dozen people including himself and injuring over 100 others. His younger brother, Hashem, was arrested shortly afterwards in connection with the attack and is being held in Libya pending extradition.

    Intelligence officials formally investigated Abedi briefly in 2014, and he was considered a closed “subject of interest” for the three years preceding the attack, the committee’s report revealed.

    He remained on MI5’s radar in the interim, drawing attention for his frequent travel to Libya, his ties to a known extremist under investigation and for visiting an incarcerated “extremist contact” in prison, according to the report.

    “An internal MI5 process in March 2017 had raised SALMAN’s name for potential further investigations; however, final decisions on this had not taken place by the time SALMAN launched his attack,” the committee’s report revealed.

    Both brothers traveled to Libya the following month, while only one returned and ultimately conducted the attack, according to authorities.

    “Following the attacks, the government, police and MI5 undertook a series of rigorous reviews to ensure we are all doing everything we can to tackle the evolving threat of terrorism,” said British Home Secretary Sajid Javid.

    Hashem Abedi could be extradited back to the U.K. to face charges within a matter of weeks, Libyan official Fayez al-Sarraj said earlier this month.
