The violence came in three separate spurts Thursday, starting at around 7:18 p.m. ET, Knoxville police said, when shots were fired at a house with two people inside: 46-year-old resident Lisa Perry and an unnamed 10-year-old.

Perry was hit multiple times in the lower back, police said on Facebook, and was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The child was not hurt.

Then, about three hours later, Brandon Perry, Lisa Perry’s 23-year-old son, and several other men drove to another neighborhood in Knoxville and “randomly fired multiple times into a crowd,” police said.

Those shots pierced Zaevion Dobson, a 15-year-old football player at Knoxville’s Fulton High School, who was “struck and killed after he had jumped on top of three girls to shield them from the shooters,” police said. The girls were not injured.

The overnight shooting spree came to an end just before 2 a.m. Friday, when Brandon Perry was shot while driving a BMW. He crashed the BMW into an apartment and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, which he later died of, police said.

Two other men fled the crash, and were quickly taken into custody. One has been released. The other, Christopher D. Bassett, 20, was charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and violation of probation, and faces additional charges as the investigation unfolds. He is being held without bond.

Check out the emotional police press conference discussing the death of Zaevion Dobson and his heroic act below by Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch. Don’t tell me that the police do not care about black lives. They very much do and especially when they make such sacrifices like Zaevion did in trying to save others from senseless gang violence.

27 Year Old Corey Morgan Arrested in the Chicago Gang Shooting Death of 9 Year Old Tyshawn Lee


27 year old Corey Morgan has been arrested and charged with first degree murder in the shooting death of 9 year old Tyshawn Lee. The boy was shot in the face and back on November 2, 2015 as he headed to a park down the street from his grandmother’s house to play basketball. According to the police, Tyshawn Lee was lured into an alley in the 8000 block of South Damen Avenue on November 2, 2015 and killed because of his father’s gang ties. Police believe Tyshawn was killed in retaliation for the October 13 murder of Tracey Morgan, 25, who is the brother of Corey Morgan.

USA Today:

The Chicago Police Department announced on Friday that they have arrested a 27-year-old Chicago man for the brutal murder of a 9-year-old boy who was lured into an alley and executed earlier this month.

The suspect was identified as Corey Morgan, of Chicago, by the police department. Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy announced a 10 a.m. news conference to formally announce the arrest and charges against Morgan.

Police said they believe Tyshawn was targeted because of his father’s gang ties. The father, Pierre Stokes, previously told reporters he is not in a gang and does not believe his son’s killing was retaliation. Stokes is currently on probation for a 2011 armed robbery conviction. He was arrested and charged in June 2014 with unlawful use of a weapon, but has pleaded not guilty to that charge.

McCarthy previously described the Nov. 2 killing as part of a string of violence between rival gangs on the city’s South Side that started in August.

“Tyshawn Lee was murdered in probably the most abhorrent, cowardly, unfathomable crime that I’ve witnessed in 35 years of policing,” McCarthy told reporters earlier this month as police searched for tips

14 Year Old Christopher Duran Shot and Killed In The Bronx, NY … Police Say Gang Related

The NY Daily News is reporting that a 14 year old boy, Christopher Duran, was shot dead while walking to school in the Bronx, NY on Friday. According to reports, the 14 year old was peppered with 16 bullets by a gunman wearing a red bandana who shot him multiple times at point-blank range. 14 year old Christopher Duran cried out “Mommy! Mommy!” as he was laying dying outside a Laundromat. Duran was shot once in the head and three times in the torso at Sheridan Avenue near East 167th Street at around 8:30 a.m. in Concourse Village. The authorities believe the shooting was gang related. Duran was no stranger to police, he had already racked-up five previous arrests, including possession of a knife, assault and battery, and robbery.

A baby-faced Bronx teenager was executed on the street Friday by a gunman wearing a red bandana who blasted him multiple times at point-blank range — and without any warning.

Fourteen-year-old Christopher Duran cried out “Mommy! Mommy!” as he was laying dying outside a laundermat, sources said.

“We have video of the shooting,” a police source said. “It’s bad, real bad. The guy runs up to him and just shoots him, bang, bang, bang. It doesn’t look like he says anything to him.”

Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce confirmed the existence of the surveillance video and agreed “it’s pretty gruesome.”

The hoodie-clad gunman may have been trying to “disguise what he looks like” with the bandana, he added.

Where is Rev. Al Sharpton an the rest of the clan protesting this murder?

UPDATE I: A surveillance image of the second suspect was released by police on Friday afternoon.

Police are looking for two suspects who fled southbound on Sheridan Avenue. They are described as a black or dark-skinned Hispanic male wearing all black, and a Hispanic male wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt with dark sleeves, blue jeans and a red bandana covering his face, police said.

A surveillance image of the second suspect was released by police on Friday afternoon. Investigators believe the shooting is gang related, but were not immediately sure if Duran was the intended target, or if the gunmen mistook him for someone else.

“(He’s) trying to disguise what he looks like. It is a red bandana, don’t know what that means just yet. But it’s a very distinctive piece of clothing. I would hope that we put that out and somebody calls,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said.

9 Dead in Rival Motorcycle Gang Fight Shootout at Twin Peaks in Waco, TX (VIDEO) (Update: 3 of the 5 Motorcycle Gangs ID’d as the Bandidos, Cossacks & Scimitars)(Update: 192 Arrested)


As per the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office, there are 9 dead and 18 injured following a shootout between rival motorcycle gangs in Waco, Texas. The shooting took place Sunday afternoon just after 12 in the Twin Peaks restaurant located in the Central Texas Market Place. According to accounts, the fight first started inside the restaurant and spilled into the parking lot where the fight quickly escalated from fists and feet to chains, clubs and knives, then to gunfire. In the aftermath of the chaos, the police recovered more than 100 weapons from the scene. Trooper D.L. Wilson said officers arrested three men near the Cabella’s store after they seized their weapons. According to CNN, the fight may have started over a parking space. When asked if the police knew what the three gangs were that took part in the shooting, Sergeant Swanton said, “We do, but we’re not going to give them the privilege at this point of putting their names out there.” However, according to this one report, at least five were present and some of the gangs were fighting as allies. Police estimate that between 150-200 gang members were involved.


Rival motorcycle gangs turned a local restaurant into a shooting gallery Sunday afternoon and when the gunfire was over, nine people were dead and 17 were injured.

Waco police Sunday afternoon, assisted by Department of Public Safety troopers, police officers from several cities and deputies from the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office were surrounding the Twin Peaks Restaurant, in the Central Texas Market Place after several people were reported shot during a rival motorcycle gang fight, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

Police initially said three gangs were involved, but later said factions from at least five gangs took part in the melee.

Police and troopers were in the parking lot trying to secure the area and protect citizens when a fight broke out inside the restaurant and spilled into the parking lot.

Swanton said the fight quickly escalated from fists and feet to chains, clubs and knives, then to gunfire.

Gang members were shooting at each other and officers at the scene fired their weapons, as well, Swanton said.

Other patrons in Twin Peaks and some employees locked themselves in a freezer to escape the fight.

The scene at the Market Place between Don Carlos and Twin Peaks was absolute chaos, Swanton said.

“It is one of the most violent scene I’ve seen in my 34 years as a police officer in Waco,” Swanton said.

Swanton said officers recovered more than 100 weapons from the scene and there were several vehicles that had bullet holes in them.

Swanton said no officers and no civilians were injured.

Authorities had anticipated trouble and pre-positioned officers; however, it appears that the establishment wanted the business rather than working with the police. In a post shooting presser, District Attorney Abel Reyna said that trouble at Twin Peaks among rival bikers had been brewing for some time. Reyna said local police were on heightened alert in anticipation of trouble on Thursday nights, when Twin Peaks hosts a Biker Night. Twin Peaks might want to rethink that marketing plan.

“There were at least three rival gang groups here this morning for whatever reason. As they were here, we had officers on scene. We expected issues,” said Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton, a police spokesman. He later said there were at least five gangs.

UPDATE I: The Twin Peaks Restaurant had hosted motorcycle gang members in the past.

Are these people friggin insane, Bikers Night … there is a recipe for disaster. Hell, these folks didn’t even wait for Thursday, they decided to have a shootout on the Sabbath. This Twin Peaks in Waco advertizes Biker night as  “Get revved up and ready to go at Twin Peaks bike night.” Or shot. What’s Wednesday, Crips and Bloods night? Hey, maybe they can have Skin head Saturday where all of a white supremacist and antisemitic groups get two for 1 beers? Have I been absurd enough?  It is hard to believe that Twin Peaks corporate would allow this to go forward. This is not a local strip club catering to bikers, its a national chain.

Twin Peaks_Bike Night

The authorities made little effort on Sunday to conceal their frustration with the restaurant’s managers, who they said had previously been uncooperative in dealing with the Police Department’s security concerns about biker gatherings there.

“We have attempted to work with the local management of Twin Peaks to no avail,” Sergeant Swanton said. “They have continued to allow these bikers to gather here, and this is the culmination of what has occurred.” He added: “What happened here today could have been avoided if we had had management at a local establishment listen to their police department and assist us. They failed to do that.”

As recently as last week, the restaurant advertised “Bike Night” on Thursdays and promised “beers, bites and bikes at the hottest place in town!”

In a statement from Twin Peaks Restaurant chain:

A spokesman for the Twin Peaks Restaurant chain emphasized that the shooting had occurred outside the restaurant but declined to provide details about the police security concerns.

“We were shocked by the shootings that took place in the parking lot of our franchised restaurant in Waco and are fully reviewing all the circumstances surrounding it,” the spokesman, Rick Van Warner, said. “We are thankful no employees, guests or police were injured in this senseless violence outside the restaurant, and our sympathies are with the families of those killed.”

UPDATE II: Waco Tribune – Multiple law enforcement sources confirmed that the Bandidos and Cossacks biker gangs were at the center of the incident.

There were 5 motorcycle gangs involved in the shooting. Two of them at the heart of the trouble were the rival gangs, the Cossacks and the Bandidos. The third motorcycle gang involved in the shooting was the  Scimitars Motorcycle Club, who are aligned with the Cossacks Motorcycle Club against the Bandidos. The other two motorcycle gangs have yet to be identified.

At least two of the gangs were trying to do some recruiting in the area Sunday, and Twin Peaks was a known place for that kind of activity, Swanton said. Multiple law enforcement sources confirmed that the Bandidos and Cossacks biker gangs were at the center of the incident.

UPDATE III: 192 arrested in motorcycle gang shooting in Waco, TX.

Some 192 people have been arrested and charged with engaging in organized crime in connection to the deadly shooting that broke out between five biker gangs at a Twin Peaks in Waco. Under a Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission mandate, the restaurant is shut down for the next seven days as the investigation continues early Monday morning into the shooting that left nine people dead and at least 18 people injured — an investigation that has included biker gang death threats made against uniformed officers.

“Threats have been made to kill our uniformed officers,” said Waco Police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton early Monday morning, who added that the people arrested could be looking at capital murder charges. “This was a true gang fight.”


Governor Larry Hogan Signs Executive Order Declaring State Of Emergency … Activating National Guard to Baltimore, MD


Following the anarchy, lawlessness, looting and rioting in West Baltimore in the wake of the Freddie Gray funeral, Gov. Larry Hogan signs an executive order declaring a state of emergency.

Some how Baltimore, MD was caught with their politically correct pants down on Monday as riots and lawlessness spread throughout the community as thugs and punks looted and destroyed the city. With all the signs pointing toward riots, no one in a leadership role looked at past events like Ferguson, MO, and other incidents where blacks were killed and a violent reactions that took place, as a means to set up safeguards in advance to prevent the chaos. Thus, we got the riots, looting, vandalism and craziness that took place in Baltimore yesterday.

Governor Larry Hogan today, at the request of Baltimore City, has signed an Executive Order declaring a state of emergency and activating the National Guard to address the growing violence and unrest in Baltimore City.

The governor, along with Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford and National Guard Adjutant General Linda Singh, will hold a press conference at the Maryland Emergency Management Agency this evening at 8:30 PM.

The Executive Order can be read HERE.

The National Guard has also been called in to come to Baltimore, Maryland.

Maryland’s governor activated the National Guard on Monday and the city of Baltimore announced a curfew for all residents as a turbulent day that began with the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, the nation’s latest symbol of police brutality, ended with rioting by rock-throwing youths, arson, looting and at least 15 police officers injured.

Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency, and the Maryland State Police, who took command of the response, said they would ask for 5,000 law enforcement officials from the mid-Atlantic region to help quell the violence. Some National Guard units were to arrive on Monday night, with others deploying on Tuesday in armored Humvees.

In Washington, Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch, on her first day on the job, briefed President Obama, who in turn called Governor Hogan. Mr. Hogan said the president urged him to have law enforcement officers exercise restraint, and he assured the president they would. “But,” the governor added, “I assured him we weren’t going to stand by and allow our city of Baltimore to be taken over by thugs.”
