    READING, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania-based frozen sliced steak brand has achieved success in its months-long campaign to become verified on Twitter. Steak-umm, owned by Reading’s Quaker Maid Meats, launched a campaign nearly four months ago to become verified on the social media platform, employing bizarre absurdist jokes alongside doctored images and videos. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Twitter verification comes via a blue check mark granted to various companies and celebrities on the platform. Steak-umm’s Twitter account confirmed Monday that the brand’s profile was now verified. The campaign was coordinated by Nathan Allebach, who has amassed an audience of over 12,000 followers on Steak-umm’s Twitter profile . Allebach said Monday the team was “beefstorming” ideas for how to move forward post-verification, including a possible celebratory event. ___ Information from: The Philadelphia Inquirer, http://www.inquirer.com

  • Pakistan launches new anti-polio drive in Punjab provincePakistan launches new anti-polio drive in Punjab province

    LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — A Pakistani health official says a special anti-polio drive has been launched in the country’s eastern Punjab province. Imran Nazir says the week-long campaign was launched on Monday amid tight security. He says thousands of workers are taking part in the drive by going house-to-house to vaccinate children in the struggle to eradicate the crippling disease. Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria are the only three countries left in the world where polio has not been eliminated. Pakistan regularly launches anti-polio drives despite threats from the Taliban who perceive the campaign as part of a Western conspiracy and claim it will sterilize Pakistani children. The Taliban and other militants have in the past attacked polio vaccination teams, health centers and health workers, even security forces accompanying health workers during the campaign.

  • Mississippi inmate in buttocks injection killing has diedMississippi inmate in buttocks injection killing has died

    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi inmate convicted in 2014 of the death of a Georgia woman through illicit silicone buttocks injections has died. The Mississippi Department of Corrections said in a statement Monday that an autopsy will be conducted on the remains of Tracy Lynn Garner , who died Sunday. She was 58 and had served less than 3 ½ years of a life sentence. Garner was convicted by a jury of depraved heart murder in the death of Karima Gordon, an Atlanta area resident who died eight days after receiving the injections in Jackson in 2012. Depraved heart murder is a killing caused by reckless disregard for human life. Prosecutors said Gordon was referred to Garner by Natasha Stewart, an adult entertainer known as Pebbelz Da Model. Stewart was convicted of manslaughter in Garner’s death and received a seven-year sentence. Authorities initially identified Garner as a man, Morris Garner, after the arrest. Her attorney subsequently said Garner was born male and had sex reassignment surgery. Angelina Barber, Gordon’s best friend who traveled with her to Jackson, testified during Gordon’s trial that she decided not to receive injections after meeting Garner. Barber testified that she and Gordon were led to believe Garner was a nurse. A nursing home administrator testified Garner had been a cook at a nursing home where she wore scrubs. Garner was taken from Central Mississippi Correctional Facility to a hospital in Jackson, where she was pronounced dead Sunday morning. The Department of Corrections did not elaborate on the circumstances surrounding the inmate’s death.

  • Measles kills dozens of children in Indonesia’s PapuaMeasles kills dozens of children in Indonesia’s Papua

    JAYAPURA, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesian authorities are struggling to contain a months-long outbreak of measles in easternmost Papua province that has killed dozens of children. Stefanus Lange, a doctor at a state-run hospital in Papua’s Asmat district, said Tuesday that cases were first detected in September, but a lack of access to remote areas, insufficient personnel and the high mobility of villagers hampered treatment and vaccination efforts. Lange said 36 victims died in Pulau Tiga sub-district and 22 died in Agats, the main town and capital of Asmat district. He did not rule out the possibility of a higher number of victims since reports have not been received from some sub-districts. Papua and neighboring West Papua are the poorest provinces in Indonesia and home to a decades-old independence movement and armed insurgency. The region is culturally and ethnically distinct form the rest of Indonesia, which annexed it in the early 1960s. Data from hospitals showed a total of 568 people had been treated for measles since September and 175 required hospitalization. The data also showed that one child died in Pulau Tiga of malnutrition, which has plagued some villages in the district. A team of more than 50 doctors and paramedics from the Indonesian military arrived Tuesday in the province to help overcome the disease.

  • Father mourns son who went missing on icy waters near JamestownFather mourns son who went missing on icy waters near Jamestown

    SURRY COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — Kyle Englehart and Austin Savage went missing during a winter storm on January 3, after they left the Jamestown Yacht Basin bound for a duck blind. Nearly two weeks later, the search continues for the missing boaters, though Kyle’s father David is beginning to accept the worst. We met David Englehart at a Surry County marina outside the Surry Seafood Company, which has assisted in providing a staging area for the search and rescue, and now the search and recovery. He took us to the shores of Grays Creek. We walked along the shore for the length of three football fields. It was bitter cold, but a trip worth taking none the less to remember all that David has lost. The peaceful waters of Grays Creek that feed the James River, “the best I know my son came here that Wednesday night,” says David, who took us to a duck blind constructed by his son. It is here in tranquility that a father comes to mourn his lost son, “I took him into the woods,” David says while pausing to catch his emotion. He continues, “from age three he knew the woods, the best hunter I ever seen other than his grandfather.” David spent a lot of time with Kyle, whom he calls a modern day Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier. “He was smart, fishing, hunting, he loved the water, jet skied, boating, and he was going to be safe.” So David was not surprised when Kyle launched his 16-foot Jon boat at a James City County marina to travel directly across the James River to Grays Creek to fix up his duck blind in Surry County. But he did it while a winter storm was hitting. “My son loved what he was doing, and people ask me ‘why? why?’ I can answer that as his father. To answer the why part? He loved this river. He loved to duck hunt and shoot deer, to hunt and farm.” David says investigators claim Kyle and his friend Austin Savage were last seen around 11 p.m. on the water heading towards Hog Island on the evening of January 3. “It’s just baffling to me. Baffling. He was smart on the water. He knew how to drive that boat in all types of conditions,” David said. Then at 11:38 p.m., the last ping from Kyle’s phone was picked up on a cell tower. “We are destroyed. We are destroyed. I have never had my heart broke like this. In a million pieces if it is (true that he is dead).” In the grief, acceptance that fate has grabbed hold of his son, “As hard as it is I have accepted that and as time goes forward it’s perilous. If I feel helpless we are doing everything we can. The police and so many agencies are involved in this.” At night, father talks to his son as if he were there. “I say ‘son. It’s daddy. I can’t believe I can’t hear your voice one more time,’ ” David said . David then says, “Kyle looked up at me and said, ‘No big deal.’ He said, ‘call me back dad.’ That is what he said, ‘call me back dad,’ and that is something he would say to me, ‘call me back dad.’ ” You get a deep feeling that it’s God that will bring the Engleharts through. “God is going to give whatever we are suppose to get. I do believe in our creator Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.”

  • Travelers warned of possible measles exposure at Chicago’s O’Hare airportTravelers warned of possible measles exposure at Chicago’s O’Hare airport

    CHICAGO – A passenger arriving on an international flight at Chicago's O'Hare Airport last Wednesday may have exposed some people in the airport to measles, health officials say. While they stress there is no current risk to the public, the Illinois Department of Public Health said in a statement that anyone inside O’Hare between 6:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on January 10 may have been exposed to the measles virus. On January 10, a passenger on an international flight with a contagious case of the measles arrived in O'Hare's Terminal 5 and traveled through Terminal 1, possibly in addition to other areas of the airport, officials say. The passenger was diagnosed with measles after arriving in his home state. Soon afterwards, the Centers for Disease Control learned of the case and contacted passengers who sat next to the passenger during his journey. Health agencies are now working to inform others who were inside O'Hare on January 10 that they may have been exposed. "If you weren’t at O'Hare on January 10 there’s no concern, and even if you were the risk was very, very low, and even if you’ve been vaccinated it’s next to nothing,” said CDPH Chief Medial Officer Dr. Allison Arwady. Since the vaccine that protects people from measles is a standard childhood vaccine, travelers who received it as a child are generally protected. But if you have not been vaccinated or you were traveling with small children that day you should check in with your doctor, officials say. If you were exposed to measles, symptoms could come on as late as January 31, and include rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes. If you think you have it, do not go to the doctor’s office right away; call first so you don’t infect anyone else. The Chicago Department of Public Health says there is no current risk for travelers coming into or out of O'Hare and they do not expect an outbreak, but it's a good reminder to make sure you and your children have all your vaccinations.

  • Local jeweler believes personal and family challenges make him a better candidate for CongressLocal jeweler believes personal and family challenges make him a better candidate for Congress

    NORFOLK, Va. - A local jeweler is being very open and honest about his life and why he wants to run for Congress. David Nygaard  is among several Democrats hoping to win a chance to  win the seat currently held by Republican Scott Taylor to represent the second congressional district. Nygaard sat down with News 3's Kurt Williams and shared why he's throwing his hat into the political ring. Kurt Williams: What was it that motivated you to run? David Nygaard: I'm tired of seeing things not working in Washington and not working locally. Williams: What do you want voters to know about David Nygaard? Nygaard: I'm the only candidate running that is currently on Obamacare and I'm passionate about defending healthcare. I'm likely the only candidate who has a son who's a felon who needs his rights restored, so I know what that means firsthand. And I am I am a single dad. I have a pre-existing condition. I'm caring for my father who's a retired Navy veteran. Williams: I mean you talk very openly about all the issues in your life: your bankruptcy, your marriage failing, now being openly gay, your son's felony record. You talk openly about all of that, do you anticipate that any of that will be used against you by your opponents? Nygaard: The truth is, that all of these experiences in my life really make me a stronger candidate, so if people want to throw mud at me, I've been completely open, honest and transparent regarding my life. So will it become an issue? Perhaps, but to be honest with you, I think it gives me a new perspective on life. It gives new perspective on how I can serve and gives me the ability to open up and be a better candidate and a better public servant. Williams: You were a Republican how long, would you say? Nygaard: I was a long-term Republican, but the Republicans have changed and life has changed me. Perhaps because of my former affiliation with the Republican party, when we get to the general election, I think I'll be a much stronger candidate to run in the second district as a Democrat, against an incumbent Republican.

It’s the result of a tragic summer in Newport News, where two dogs died after stays at the same boarding facility. However, one local kennel owner told 10 On Your Side the current bills do more harm than good. Dogs have always had a special place in Maria and Patrick Nolan’s lives. After their service in the Navy, it made sense to take over Bayside Kennels in Virginia Beach. “The opportunity came up to buy it and we jumped at it,” Patrick Nolan said. Last summer, when an Australian Shepard named Fenway died after a stay at Newport News kennel, it hit close to home. “When we look at the circumstances of Fenway’s passing, we say inexcusable,” Nolan said. Nolan said the tragedy brought up serious kennel concerns. “When you’ve got a dog that is unsupervised with other dogs, and that has got its collars on (that’s bad),” Nolan said. Nolan said the incident is a black eye for the dog day care community. He watched as the General Assembly crafted legislation that should better regulate boarding facilities. But Nolan doesn’t think the two bills get the job done. “HB 79 doesn’t address the training or certification of the group play supervisors at all,” Nolan explained. That particular bill, crafted by delegate David Yancey, divides play groups of dogs by size. Nolan said that will force kennels to charge more. ”You’re talking about having day care bills that are over $8,000, potentially based on the size of your dog,” he said. Nolan thinks it will force some kennels to close. So we asked him: What do you want to see in Virginia kennel regulations? He said first; give more money to animal control to enforce current laws. “If we are really talking about doing something that’s going to be beneficial to the animal community and pet owners, then something comprehensive needs to be drafted,” he said. The Nolans love their work and the dogs they care for, but they feel the new laws could create unforeseen consequences.

  • Dueling gun rallies held at Virginia capitolDueling gun rallies held at Virginia capitol

    Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment RICHMOND – Demonstrators for and against gun control held rallies on the Capitol grounds Monday, highlighting an issue that has sharply divided Republicans and Democrats. U.S. Rep. Dave Brat and several fellow Republicans held a rally in the morning in support of the Second Amendment and the expansion of gun rights. “I’m not going to take away your Second Amendment rights,” said Dick Black, a state senator and Vietnam veteran from Loudoun County, “when I’m standing here alive because I had a rifle when I needed it.” A few hours later, Democratic officials delivered a different message, advocating what they call “common-sense” gun control proposals. “Over 1,000 individuals lose their lives each year in Virginia to gun violence and accidents – more than will die in motor vehicle accidents,” said newly inaugurated Gov. Ralph Northam. “Why don’t we all stand up and say ‘enough is enough?’” Virginia Citizens Defense League rally The Virginia Citizens Defense League started its rally at about 11 a.m. at the Bell Tower on Capitol Square. One of the attendees was Cesar Inong, Jr., a mortgage loan assistant from Springfield in Northern Virginia. Inong said he thinks restrictions on guns should be loosened for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves from muggers and other attacks. “Over years and years, gun laws have become stricter and stricter, but the issues that coincide with anti-gun laws are increasing – issues including shootings,” Inong said. At the rally, several Republican politicians, including Del. Dave LaRock of Loudoun County, spoke in support of gun rights. Philip Van Cleave, president of Virginia Citizens Defense League, criticized bills before the General Assembly that would restrict gun rights. “There’s a bill that if somebody swore an oath that if you were a danger to yourself, before you go to court or anything they can come in your house and take your guns away for a couple of weeks,” Van Cleave said. “You’re guilty before you’re innocent.” Speakers at the rally said restrictions on obtaining a concealed weapons permit hurt minorities and lower-income residents who may live in high-crime neighborhoods. Another vulnerable group is victims of domestic violence. Elizabeth Baran, a nurse from Maryland, said she was nearly beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend. “I called the police when he would break into my home. They could do really little other than writing a report,” Baran said. “After a failed suicide attempt on his part, he came to my home and broke in and decided that was the day I was going to die.” She described being raped and beaten and having her head slammed repeatedly into the cement, leaving her with a brain injury that would end her career as an emergency room nurse. “After a very long and difficult process in Maryland, I was able to obtain my unrestricted wear-and-carry permit in Maryland,” Baran said. “I want people to be able to understand that being able to own and carry a firearm can sometimes be truly a life-and-death situation.” Virginia Center for Public Safety vigil In the afternoon, the Virginia Center for Public Safety held a vigil for victims of gun violence and then met with legislators, urging them to support bills such as one requiring background checks before all gun purchases. The center’s rally was held only hours after Republicans on a Senate committee killed that bill and 19 other proposals to restrict firearms. At the vigil, Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring reaffirmed their commitment to gun safety laws. They were joined by religious leaders and activists to send one message: The fight is not over. “This morning, the legislature had an opportunity to take some concrete steps to make our communities safer, to make our families safer, by passing better laws,” Herring said. “And what happened? They were all defeated partially, if not all of them, on a party-line vote.” Herring left the crowd with a clear promise: “We’re not going to stop. We’re not going to give up.” Fairfax echoed Herring’s commitment to continue fighting for gun control and reducing gun violence. “We are not going to allow what happened today in the legislature deter us,” he said. “I promise you this … we will win this fight.” Northam told the crowd that his concerns about the proliferation of firearms come from his experience as a physician in the Army. “I served in Desert Storm. I saw firsthand what weapons of war do to human beings,” he said. “We do not need them on the streets. We do not need them in our society.” Kris Gregory, 58, from Falls Church, attended the event. She organized a traveling vigil made of T-shirts representing the 32 victims killed at the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007. She said she liked what the legislators had to say about the future of gun regulation in Virginia. “[I’m] delighted to have strong advocacy for sensible gun laws,” Gregory said. “We knew it was not going to be easy. This is a marathon, not a sprint, but we have a great deal of hope and the country is with us.” By Christopher Wood and Adam Hamza Capital News Service

  • Man’s attempt to hold in sneeze lands him in hospital with ruptured throatMan’s attempt to hold in sneeze lands him in hospital with ruptured throat

    ENGLAND – If you are about to sneeze — even if you are in a quiet place — doctors would advise you to let it rip. A 34-year-old unnamed man in Britain learned that lesson the hard way and had to spend two weeks in the hospital due to his resulting injury. That’s according to a case report with the cringe-inducing title “Snap, crackle and pop: when sneezing leads to crackling in the neck.” The report was published Monday in the medical journal BMJ Case Reports. According to the report, this “previously fit” man pinched his nose and kept his mouth closed during a “forceful” sneeze. He later told doctors he immediately felt a popping sensation in his neck. He didn’t notice any problems right away, but a couple of hours later he felt pain in his throat and neck. When it became swollen and his voice changed, he took himself to the hospital. “This 34-year-old chap said he was always trying to hold his sneeze because he thinks it is very unhygienic to sneeze into the atmosphere or into someone’s face. That means he’s been holding his sneezes for the last 30 years or so, but this time it was different,” case report author Dr. Wanding Yang said. She works in the department of ear, nose and throat at at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. Initially, doctors saw swelling in his neck and when they examined the soft tissue they heard popping and crackling. Yang said that meant there were air bubbles getting into the man’s muscles and deep into his tissue. Scans confirmed the problem. The tests showed actual streaks of air in the retropharyngeal region and extensive surgical emphysema in the neck anterior to the trachea. In other words, by trying to hold in his sneeze, he actually blew a small hole in his throat. “Luckily, it was a very small perforation,” Yang said. “He didn’t need any operation.” When you sneeze, it’s your body’s protective reflex to get rid of an irritant that has gotten into your nose. With a sneeze, a significant amount of air pressure builds up in the lungs and forces its way through the nasal cavity to get rid of that irritant. A sneeze can propel mucous droplets at a rate of 100 miles an hour. If you hold a sneeze back, that pressurized air will need to go somewhere. In this case, it injured the tissue in the man’s throat. In past cases, doctors have also seen a stifled sneeze cause sinus problems, middle and inner ear damage, ear infections and a ruptured ear drum. The patient was given antibiotics and had to be fed through a tube, which was removed after seven days. His symptoms got better while he rested and gradually he was able to eat soft food. This kind of sneezing injury is unusual, according to the report. Doctors have seen patients with similar injuries after coughing heavily or after vomiting forcefully. “It is a rare injury that we would more likely see with trauma, like if someone were to be in a car accident or was injured with a gunshot or knife, or if they swallowed something sharp,” said Dr. Adam M. Klein, who did not see the British patient and was not involved in the study. Klein is the director of the Emory Voice Center and chief of the division of laryngology in the department of otolaryngology. Klein said if you are worried about spreading germs with your sneezes, rather than hold it in, the best thing to do to avoid injury is to let it out. If you don’t have a tissue, sneezing into the crook of your elbow, rather than onto your hand, is “a good practice.” The good news for this patient is that there was no permanent damage. Doctors did advise the man not to pinch his nose closed for future sneezes and they advise others to heed the same advice. “Halting sneeze via blocking nostrils and mouth is a dangerous maneuver,” the report recommended. It “should be avoided, as it may lead to numerous complications.”

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va . - A Virginia Beach man said he bought his first home only to have it catch fire two days later. The sold sign still out front of Jordan Weymouth’s new home on Lake Meadow Road in Virginia Beach. “I fell in love with it when I walked in,” said Weymouth. Weymouth said he bought it last Tuesday. Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment He and his girlfriend moved a bunch of their stuff in and left at around 9 o’clock Thursday but about an hour later the place was on fire. Weymouth said he had the gas turned on that day and he thinks it might have been an electrical problem. He said he was devastated and stunned after saving his money for years. “My whole life savings is in that house. I didn't think two days after closing I'd be in a house fire,” said Weymouth. But his co-workers started a GoFundMe account for him. His loved ones including his girlfriend’s family are also showing support along with complete strangers who live in his new neighborhood. He said dozens have been coming by offering to help. “I fell in love with the house initially and I didn't know the neighbors but seeing the reaction from the neighbors and the community, it makes me fall in love with this place even more,” said Weymouth. Weymouth said they are waiting to hear from the insurance company. The fire department has an investigation into the fire. Weymouth is grateful no one was harmed in the fire, but he knows the next few months will be financially very difficult as he works to replace all the things they lost. But he said he will never forget the kindness and generosity offered by many as he deals with his toughest challenge yet. “Everybody's been willing to help and for me, I'll remember that. Of course, I'll remember how terrible this was but to have people helping, I'll remember that for the rest my life,” said Weymouth.

  • Local organizations hold Day of Service in honor of MLKLocal organizations hold Day of Service in honor of MLK

    NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – For some Hampton Roads residents, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. took form in the shape of volunteer work. The volunteers were out working all across southeastern Newport News on Monday.  For them, it was the perfect way to honor the legacy of Dr. King: with a tangible answer to his question of “what are you doing for others?” It was a day on, not a day off. “What we’re doing here is trying to make an impact in southeast Newport News,” said Rev. Charles Cheek, with the Peninsula Baptist Association. Putting words into action to honor Dr. King. Cheek said, “Dr. King was a man of motion.  He was a man that wanted to engage the community.” Volunteers gathered Monday morning at Zion Baptist Church.  From there, they got to work. “I enjoy just getting to know other people that are out here wanting to love on this community,” said volunteer Christina Porter.  It was her second year joining the Peninsula Baptist Association for their annual day of service. Porter said, “I want to be part of bringing change and bringing restoration to this community that needs hope and needs love.”  She worked to rebuild the community garden at Marshall Early Learning Center, joined by volunteers from “The Mission Continues.” “We’re focusing on the core values of Dr. Martin Luther King of education, selflessness,” said Renee Foster, with The Mission Continues. The veterans organization teamed up with the Peninsula Baptist Association to make some changes to the school, like a new reading loft and a sensory room. Foster said, “Service is what brings the community together as a whole, you have to be willing to give back and put in an effort into your community to make your community better, and that’s done through service.” Other volunteers worked at “Operation Breaking Through,” while another group went door-to-door, meeting people in the nearby neighborhoods. “We’re hoping people are not seeing it as an event, but seeing it as a movement, a change in the community,” said Cheek. They are making steps toward making change, while honoring the legacy of Dr. King.

  • Gunshots from Newport News shooting caught on videoGunshots from Newport News shooting caught on video

    NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - A security camera attached to the front of a home caught two distinct gunshots from a shooting that happened Thursday. The homeowner, Garry Herrera said he initially thought they were fireworks. Herrera told News 3 he had just made his weekly grocery run and was unloading groceries when the shooting happened. "As I was coming back and reaching into the back of the truck for my groceries, I heard two distinct shots ringing out," said Herrera. Newport News police said they got the call about shots fired after 9 p.m. Thursday night. A 17-year-old teenager was shot in the arm. "This is a relatively quiet neighborhood. Been here since late 2016 when we purchased the home. There hasn't been any incidents I recall," said Herrera. Because of that, Herrera initially dismissed the idea it was a shooting. His home is across the street from where the shooting took place at the intersection of Harpersville Road and Groome Road. However, shortly after, Herrera heard the sirens. "I was in the house when I heard the sirens coming in in the distance. Something just told me I think they were gunshots," said Herrera. He gave Newport News Police a copy of the surveillance video. Even though he lives across the street from where the shooting happened, he isn't scared. "I'm not worried in the least bit. It happens everywhere. It was just a bad day around the neighborhood. Since then, it's been back to normal, quiet. I'm not concerned," said Herrera. Police are still investigating what happened. The teenager was sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

  • Two shootings on area interstates, both unprovoked, under investigationTwo shootings on area interstates, both unprovoked, under investigation

    HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) — Two separate interstate shootings that happened within hours of each other have Virginia State Police scrambling to find the suspects. At this time, there’s no suspect information related to either case, but officers do believe the two shootings are unrelated. What’s unusual is that both shootings were unprovoked, according to police. There was no altercation beforehand, or reports of road rage leading up to either incident. The first shooting happened just before 8 p.m. Sunday night in Newport News on an entrance ramp leading north onto I-664 from Chestnut Avenue. jQuery(function( $ ){ map = new google.maps.Map( document.getElementById( "lin-map-1" ), { center: new google.maps.LatLng( 36.999190043948, -76.408343045972 ), zoom: parseFloat( 14 ), mapTypeControlOptions: { style: google.maps.MapTypeControlStyle.DROPDOWN_MENU } }); }); Police say three people had just left a supermarket in a minivan and were merging onto I-664 when they heard multiple gunshots. No one inside the minivan could tell where the gunshots came from, but one of them was shot. The victim, a 40-year-old man, was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. No one else was hurt, and a search of the area didn’t reveal any suspects. Then, just as VSP officers finished clearing the scene of that shooting, they were called in reference to another interstate shooting in the area, this time in Virginia Beach. That shooting happened just before 2:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-264, about a half mile east of Newtown Road. Police say a Chevrolet Malibu had just passed Witchduck Road heading west on I-264 when an unknown vehicle pulled up alongside. Someone inside the vehicle then began shooting at the Malibu. jQuery(function( $ ){ map = new google.maps.Map( document.getElementById( "lin-map-2" ), { center: new google.maps.LatLng( 36.845061246855, -76.182973232263 ), zoom: parseFloat( 15 ), mapTypeControlOptions: { style: google.maps.MapTypeControlStyle.DROPDOWN_MENU } }); }); A 21-year-old woman in the back seat was struck by the gunfire, but she’s expected to be OK after sustaining non life-threatening injuries. She was taken to the hospital, and no other passengers in the Malibu were injured. From Newport News to Virginia Beach, drivers are on edge. “I’m very concerned about people out here shooting people random,” said Bruce Spratley of Newport News. “Because I have kids. I wouldn’t want somebody driving past me trying to shoot at me,” said Tameka Calloway of Virginia Beach. Agents are asking anyone with information regarding either crime to contact the Virginia State Police at 757-424-6800 or #77 on a cellular phone. Tips can also be sent in by email to questions@vsp.virginia.gov.

  • Not in our waters: Kaine hears from local leaders on offshore drillingNot in our waters: Kaine hears from local leaders on offshore drilling

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — “No upside” and “unconscionable” were just two of the comments Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Virginia) heard Monday morning at a meeting regarding the possibility of offshore drilling off the Virginia coast. The Trump administration wants to expand offshore exploration and drilling in virtually all waters off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, however Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced last week that he would grant Florida’s request for an exemption. Kaine wants the same for Virginia. Kaine met at the Hilton Garden Inn with leaders from local government, the military, tourism and environmental groups. All of the participants oppose offshore drilling. Two local military experts say all five service branches use our waters as a training range, so offshore oil platforms could have a devastating effect on our ability to maintain our military presence. “Any sort of a crimp or a compromise in that training is an adverse effect,” said Craig Quigley of the Hampton Roads Military Federal Facilities Alliance. Joe Bouchard is a homeland security consultant and former commanding officer of Naval Station Norfolk. Bouchard says if Virginia gets drilling while Florida has an exemption, Florida will use that leverage against Hampton Roads.  Bouchard says Florida has been trying to take away one of our carrier battle groups for years. “The economic loss from losing a carrier battle group greatly exceeds any conceivable economic gain from offshore drilling.” Representatives from the Virginia Aquarium warned against the potential damage to whales, turtles and other sea life. The city’s Revenue Commissioner Phil Kellam told Kaine that tourism accounts for more than $100 million each year, about a quarter of all tax revenue. Long time owner of the Breakers Resort, Jimmy Capps says he fears the unknown. “What happens if one of them bursts or has a leak? If it were to happen in the middle of our tourist season, it would be devastating.” Kaine left the meeting with his own opposition to drilling reinforced. “It just puts too much of what makes Hampton Roads work at risk to contemplate offshore drilling.” Virginia Congressman Rob Wittman (R-Montross) supports drilling as a means to boost jobs and promote energy independence. The US Interior Department will hold hearings in Richmond on January 17 and in Washington on February 22. Kaine says he will try to get two more hearings scheduled – one each for Virginia Beach and the Eastern Shore. The public comment period will last until March 9.

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A Norfolk family lost nearly everything in a fire last month. Everything except for their beloved pet. But the dog did not escape unharmed. It has severe burns to more than half its body.  Now the community is stepping up to help this dog get back on its feet. “Her burns were not as evident when she came in,” said Dr. Kimberly Key with Bay Beach Veterinary Hospital. Bella was burned in a house fire December 27 on Norfolk’s A Avenue.  Her owner is a single mom with five children. “She has second and third degree burns over the majority of her right side,” Key added. Animal control brought Bella to Bay Beach for care.  Vets knew that her owner wouldn’t be able to pay for care so they’ve been donating their services. “We are doing treatments on her every day,” Key said.  “She is so tolerant, so sweet.” Vets say the community support has been overwhelming.  Donations from strangers have helped offset the mounting bills. “We just wanted to do anything we could to help,” added Dr. Heather Brookshire with Animal Vision Center of Virginia. Animal Vision Center of Virginia has pitched in to fix Bella’s eyes. The heat left her eyes with ulcers, but it’s very treatable. “I think she has got a good chance,” Brookshire said.  “She is going to need a lot of continued therapy.” Bella is getting stronger every day and in a couple weeks might be able to go home.  No, she’s not a Phoenix, but she certainly appears to be rising from the ashes. “She’s extremely lucky to be alive,” Key added. Vets are still looking for donations for Bella’s care.  They say anyone interested in donating can call Bay Beach Veterinary Hospital at 757-340-3913.

    NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) —  Winter’s tight grip on Hampton Roads this year is putting a squeeze on local homeless shelters. Local shelters have seen an increase in people coming into their facilities over the last month and they are running low on some supplies. The Union Mission alone has about 400 men, women and children staying in their shelters right now. Along with the challenges of feeding and housing that many people, the shelter is fighting the flu, which is spreading among those who’ve been cooped up together. “If you and I had a cold, we’d just open up our medicine cabinet or go to the drug store and get cough medicine, ibuprofen and Tylenol, things like that. Those are things people don’t think about with the homeless.” said Union Mission spokesperson, Linda Jones. The shelter could use things like alcohol free cough syrup and cough drops. They also need: – men’s underwear – women’s gloves – twin blankets – non-perishable food You can drop off donations at their facility at 121 E. Virginia Beach Blvd., Norfolk, or contact Union Mission for more information.

    NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A Norfolk District Court judge denied a gang member’s motion to withdraw his guilty plea on Jan. 10. Court documents say Anthony Foye of Suffolk, pleaded guilty in May of 2017 to four counts of murder in aid of racketeering activity and faced a mandatory life sentence on each count.

The paperwork also says Foye shot two other people in Portsmouth and Virginia Beach and fired gunshots into a Portsmouth home. Davis was sentenced to 45 years in prison in October of 2017 for his role in two of the murders.

    NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — The owner of Casey’s Seafood, Inc. in Newport News was charged Friday with violating the Lacey Act for blending foreign crab meat with Atlantic blue crab meat. The Department of Justice says 74-year-old James R. Casey is accused of replacing Atlantic blue crab meat with crab meat from Indonesia, China, Thailand, Vietnam and other foreign countries from July of 2012 to June of 2015.

    NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A New Jersey man who helped supply dealers in Hampton Roads with heroin and fentanyl that led to dozens of overdoses two deaths has pleaded guilty. Federal authorities say 43-year-old Kenneth Stuart, aka “Bones,” was the out-of-state supplier for a heroin and fentanyl ring led by Erskine Dawson, Jr., of Chesapeake. Stuart supplied three and 10 kilograms — or 7,500 to 25,000 individual doses — of the drugs between March and December of 2016. Authorities say the drugs were often concealed in stuff animals and transported from New Jersey to Virginia. The drugs were distributed in baggies stamped “King of Death,” “Last Call,” “Mad Max,” and “Chef Curry.” Two people from Virginia died after consuming the drugs. Authorities say Stuart knew of the deaths, and told two co-defendants to keep selling the drugs. Dawson pleaded guilty last July to selling drugs supplied by Stuart that led to overdoses and deaths. Authorities worked with police from Virginia Beach and Chesapeake in December 2016 to raid motels in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and Norfolk. Law enforcement ended up seizing cash, guns and over 1,800 baggies of heroin and fentanyl. Eight people involved in the organization were indicted and have since pleaded guilty. Four of those have been sentenced to a combined 70 years in prison. Stuart’s co-supplier, Rashad L. Clark, pleaded guilty in December. Stuart faces life in prison when he is sentenced in April 2018.

    KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (WAVY) — Several theft suspects were arrested on Wednesday in Kill Devil Hills after witnesses tipped police to the crimes. Police say the first call came just after 1 p.m. for a suspicious male lurking around a home in the 200 block of North Memorial Blvd. The caller gave police the description of the man and his location, and stayed on the phone with the dispatcher to update police on the man’s location. Officers arrived minutes later and arrested 33-year-old Kevin Allan Smyth as he was leaving the home with a bag of stolen items. But that wasn’t the only theft case officers responded to on Wednesday. Just before midnight later that day, another caller alerted police of three people who were reportedly going through unlocked cars around the Oyster Point Condos. The caller gave police a description of the suspects and the suspects’ vehicle and stayed on the line to relay their movements. Police then swooped in and arrested 20-year-old Skyler Lasco, 25-year-old Allen Shreaves and 18-year-old Bailey Garrett, charging them with multiple counts of breaking and entering motor vehicles and possession of stolen property. All of the vehicles that were broken into were unlocked, and one of the items taken was a Ruger .357 magnum revolver loaded with hollow point rounds. Police say the revolver is among the items that haven’t been linked to back to an owner. Those who had their cars broken into are asked to call police at (252) 473-3444, and residents around the area are urged to keep their vehicles locked at all times. Police emphasized that calls from witnesses were key to stopping these crimes. They ask that if you “see something, say something” by calling 911.
