A 6-Year-Old Little Girl Is Shot In DC, Man Hunt For A Man Who Threatened The President Online, Original Tuskegee Airman passes

A 6-year-old little girl is shot in DC …

The search continues for those involved in yesterday’s shooting of a 6-year-old little girl, a teen girl, and a woman. The shooting in the 100 block of 59th street happened just before 9 last night. The child was shot in the leg. All three victims are expected to survive.

Witnesses say a dark colored four-door Acura or Lexus with a license plate in the windshield circled the block before opening fire. The shooting was about a mile away from were 10-year-old Makiyah Wilson was shot and killed while playing outside in June. This shooting was just one of three separate that took place in the District last night all before 11 O’clock.

Manhunt on for man who threatened the President…

The massive multi-state search for a Pennsylvania man who threatened to kill President Trump and other elected officials in the state remains on the loose. The FBI says 27-year-old Shawn Christy should be considered armed and dangerous.

Christy is a self-proclaimed survivalist. He was last seen yesterday sleeping in a vehicle in Cumberland, Maryland. He wanted for several warrants for burglary, violating probation and failure to appear for an aggravated assault case.

On June 19th Christy made several threats on Facebook against the district Attorney in Northampton County. In his post, he said, “Keep it up Morganelli, I promise I’ll put a bullet in your head as soon as I put one in the head of President Donald J. Trump”.  His Facebook post has since been deleted. There are several posts that seem to taunt law enforcement.

Agents believe that he may still be in a stolen red pick up truck with Pennsylvania license plate number ZGL-2845. There is a $20,000 dollar reward for information that leads to his capture and prosecution.

Original Tuskegee Airman passes…

The Nation has lost yet another original Tuskegee Airman. On Saturday Frank Weaver passed away in his sleep. He was 91 years old. Weaver was a hangar chief during World War II for the first African-American group to fly with the U.S. Army Corps. His funeral will be held on Saturday in Kentucky.

Kentucky state Rep. Tom Burch described Weaver as humble. “He served well, did not talk about it, did not say how great he was or anything”, he added, “In fact, you had to pull everything out of him”.
