Rookie trooper in Arizona shot dead by suspect who stole cop gun

first_imgKNXV-TV(GOODYEAR, Ariz.) — An Arizona trooper who just graduated the academy in May was shot dead when a suspect stole a police officer’s gun during a struggle, authorities said.“The [Department of Public Safety] family is in mourning,” Colonel Frank Milstead of the Arizona Department of Public Safety said at a news conference. “Lives have been shattered and ruined.”The attack unfolded Wednesday night after authorities received calls about a driver swerving in and out of the lanes of Interstate 10, throwing items at cars, Milstead said.One trooper arrived, followed by two more troopers, including one who was finishing his field training, Milstead said.A fight broke out, during which two police officers from Goodyear, Arizona, arrived and helped try to take the suspect into custody, Milstead said.During the struggle, one of the trooper’s guns was taken by the suspect, Milstead said. The suspect then fired from the trooper’s weapon, hitting troopers Dalin Dorris and Tyler Edenhofer, he said.Dorris is in “good spirits, considering the circumstances,” Milstead said.But Edenhofer — who had just graduated from the state trooper academy in May — died from his injuries, Milstead said.“We’re all in a little bit of a state of shock this morning,” Milstead said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”It was not immediately clear which trooper’s gun was stolen.Edenhofer’s death came just hours after a 17-year veteran of the Milwaukee Police Department veteran was shot dead in the line of duty in Wisconsin.Gunfire was the leading cause of death among the 73 officers killed in the first half of this year, accounting for 42 percent of the deaths, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Press release: Campaign branches out to protect UK’s mighty oaks

first_img We need to take a serious look at the threats our trees and woods are facing. As we approach a post-Brexit world, we need to take opportunities to make the UK’s landscape more resilient, and combat invasive pests and diseases head-on. Our shared responsibilities span from ensuring the supply of new, UK-sourced saplings to better care for our ancient trees. We are proud to be a part of Action Oak. The oak supports an astonishing amount of wildlife, but is also an iconic part of our culture and heritage. By working together we plan to make the necessary changes to safeguard our most treasured native tree, for decades to come. The JABBS Foundation, a private family charitable foundation based in Birmingham – has pledged over £565,000 towards research examining oak tree defences at the University of Birmingham for Forest Research The Action Oak Partnership includes The Woodland Trust, Woodland Heritage, National Trust, The Duchy of Cornwall, Forest Research, Royal Botanical Gardens Kew, the Forestry Commission and the Northern Ireland Forest Service, and is supported by Defra, Scottish, Wales and Northern Ireland governments.The Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA), supported by the organisations involved in the Partnership, will have a stand at RHS Chelsea dedicated to Action Oak. At the stand visitors will be able to learn about how oak trees have shaped our history, the threats the face and how they can be protected.Action Oak has already attracted support from foundations, businesses, artists and celebrities including: Protecting our country from pests and diseases, so our trees and plants can thrive in the future, is a priority for this Government and we are proud to be backing this campaign. The Action Oak Partnership provides a one-off opportunity to shape the future of our oak trees and make sure they continue to have a place in our landscape. The combined knowledge of all the organisations involved will be vital in protecting these majestic trees, contributing to help us be the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we found it. British ceramicist Emma Bridgewater – has created a bespoke Action Oak mug which will go on sale later in the year in support of Partnership, with a portion of the proceeds going towards Action Oak research The oak is our country’s most important tree, an iconic species and the provider of numerous benefits to us and our environment. We must do all that we can to preserve the health of our oak trees for future generations. Dame Judi Dench, a well-known tree lover – a 3D scan of her favourite oak tree will be displayed on the Action Oak stand at Chelsea Geraint Richards, Duchy of Cornwall head forester, said:center_img A major new campaign to protect the UK’s mighty oak trees from threats including pests and diseases has been officially launched at the 2018 Chelsea Flower Show by Lord Gardiner, Defra’s Biosecurity Minister.The Action Oak Partnership – made up of charities, environmental organisations and landowners – is seeking to raise £15 million for research and monitoring to help safeguard the 121 million oaks in UK woodlands.Work will include capturing the first detailed picture of the current health of oaks trees, helping to gain a greater understanding of how to preserve their iconic position in our landscape for generations to come.The campaign contributes to the Government’s 25-year Environment Plan, which was launched by the Prime Minister in January, by helping to strengthen biosecurity and build resilience to protect oaks for future generations. It also builds on the £37 million the Government is already investing in tree and plant health research.Action Oak is supported by The Prince of Wales, who convened a cross-sector meeting on the issue of plant health and biosecurity at Highgrove, his residence in Gloucestershire, in February. HRH is also the Patron of Woodland Heritage, the charity that will be administering funds raised by the campaign.Defra Biosecurity Minister Lord Gardiner said: Beccy Speight, chief executive for the Woodland Trust, said: The Monument Trust, one of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts – has donated a further £500,000 towards research into Acute Oak Decline (AOD) Lewis Scott, co-founder and trustee of Woodland Heritage said: My co-Founder, Peter Goodwin, single-handedly raised £2million towards research into Acute Oak Decline (AOD) before his untimely death last year. This money has enabled so much research to have been undertaken over the last decade, but the threats to the oak go far beyond AOD, itself not yet fully understood. It is wonderful, therefore, for Woodland Heritage to now be part of a unique initiative that is tackling the wide range of risks the oak faces head-on, helping to ensure that the mighty oak can be enjoyed by generations to come.

Vulfpeck Welcomes Rachael Price, Performs Dubstep At Brooklyn Steel Closer

While the opening Friday night show was surely special, the Saturday and Sunday performances raised the bar to an all-time high, the Ann Arbor-bred quartet (and some very talented friends) captivating and commanding the audience like a force to be reckoned with throughout the weekend.The band is, and forever will be, Jack Stratton, Joe Dart, Theo Katzman, and Woody Goss, though Vulfpeck’s show has evolved into a family-style meal of guest collaborators, as percussionist Richie Rodriguez, guitarist Cory Wong, vocalist Antwaun Stanley, and vocalist/keyboardist/saxophonist Joey Dosik remained stage-put for large portions of the set. New York reliables Melissa Gardiner (trombone), Ibanda Ruhumbika (tuba), and Mark Dover (clarinet) became weekend staples as they contributed the embellishments necessary for the songs to continue to grow with time. Sunday night’s performance featured vocalist Rachael Price of Lake Street Dive for a cover of Fleetwood Mac‘s “Say You Love Me.”While the majority of the setlists remained the same over the weekend, they were differentiated by the first five songs of each night. Brooklyn Steel was treated to a mix of new and old rarities, including “Fugue State,” “El Chepe,” “Daddy, He Got A Tesla,” “Smile Meditation,” and “Animal Spirits,” which featured a horn section for the first time ever.Of course, all three nights were awarded with the love-pounding “1612,” the dance-driving “Funky Duck,” the heart-warming “Wait For The Moment,” and the sing-a-long favorite “Back Pocket.” Each night was similarly driven home with a “Beastly” and “Dean Town” Joe Dart bass badass-ery clinic, affectionately separated by “Christmas in LA.” Sunday night closed with their “dub step” version of “It Gets Funkier,” during which Jack Stratton used his cell phone as a probably-real/probably-not synthesizer and bippity-bopped his way to a 21 second hand stand to culminate the show. The band goes on to Europe this week, with sold-out runs in Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin, Glasgow, London, and Dublin.Thanks to Evan Pragliola, you can enjoy videos from Sunday night’s show below:last_img read more
