CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (WBTV) – A search warrant provides new details on the investigation resulting from a deadly shooting in northwest Charlotte that killed a 3-year-old boy.

Shortly before midnight on September 7, police said Asiah Figueroa was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting where police said several people fired nearly 150 bullets at her home on Richard Rozzelle Drive.

According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s search warrant, detectives began searching the neighborhood after the shooting and obtained surveillance footage of several nearby locations. This footage showed two vehicles entering the neighbors around 11:30 p.m.

Vehicles stopped outside the house on Richard Rozzelle Drive, at which point five people opened fire on the residence, police said. They then left the area via Atherton Mill Road, the warrant says.

On September 8, detectives spoke to a witness who said the suspects were residing in a residence on Kiev Drive, according to the search warrant. Authorities said they monitored the scene and saw a silver Nissan Altima with a Florida tag arrive at the house.

“The driver of the vehicle, who was wearing a yellow T-shirt, entered the residence with nothing in his hands. Shortly after, the subject left the residence and was carrying a black handgun, ”the warrant states.

At this point, the occupant of the vehicle went to a residence on Valerie Drive, which backs up to the house on Kiev Drive, and retrieved an “AK-style” rifle from the trash, investigators said. They then got back into the Altima and left.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle and a chase began, according to the CMPD. At the end of the pursuit, a person was apprehended, specifies the warrant.

Police said they recovered evidence from inside the vehicle that matched evidence from the crime scene at Richard Rozzelle Drive.

The suspect’s name was not on the warrant.

In the weeks following the shooting, three people were taken into police custody.

Jacob Lanier is charged with murder and nine counts of shooting in an occupied apartment. Qua’tonio Stephens is accused of aiding and abetting after the fact of a crime.

Investigators also charged Kaleb Lawrence with murder in this case. He was denied bail during his first court appearance on Monday.

Authorities continue to say they believe teenagers from Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools were also involved.

A mass brawl broke out in the stands during the match between Dynamo Kiev and Oleksandriya in the Ukrainian Premier League on Saturday.

Footage from the incident shows a group of ultras charging a segregation fence at NSC Olympiyskiy in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev.

Police are reportedly investigating the mass brawl after a number of supporters and seats were left covered in blood, with RT reporting that the incident partly took place in a family section of the stadium.

The hosts won the game itself 1-0 with a time-out penalty from winger Viktor Tsygankov, sealing all three points.



Ultras could be seen charging a segregation barrier during Dynamo Kiev v Oleksandriya game

Reports suggest the violence began after a supporter told ultras not to launch flares due to children sitting in an adjoining part of the stadium.

The smoke and gas produced by torches can be particularly harmful to children.

Ultras were then seen attacking fans and reports said the brawl consisted of around 50 Ultras taking on four other supporters.

Four people have since come forward to report injuries of “varying severity” and the case is now being investigated by police.

What penalties should be imposed for this kind of mob violence? Let us know in the comments section below.

An official police statement issued after the incident reads: “Police efforts are aimed at identifying and bringing to justice all those involved. “

Meanwhile, Dynamo Kiev also released a statement from the club acknowledging the incident: “Fans in the neighboring area made legitimate verbal remarks to them that such actions could harm and cause discomfort to children and other spectators in the area. [a nearby] sector.

“In response to this request, there was an aggressive and unacceptable backlash from members of the fan group. It was manifested by the commission of physical violence against certain spectators, [and] their beating by a group of people in front of a large audience of the match, including viewers.

“It was only after the police intervened that this offense was stopped. Individuals have been identified and detained for drafting pleadings.

The club also condemned the actions of the ultras and promised to help with the subsequent police investigation.

“We hope that law enforcement will give an appropriate legal assessment to the aggressive actions of the perpetrators and bring them to justice for the crime.

“FC Dynamo is clearly stating its firm position on the inadmissibility of any act of violence in the stadium and the inevitability of punishing law breakers.

“For our part, we guarantee the full assistance of the investigating authorities in the investigation of criminal proceedings.”

Dynamo Kiev are set to host European giants Bayern Munich and Barcelona in the Champions League in November and UEFA have not been happy with the footage from Saturday’s game.

The detention of Russian citizen Alexander Franchetti at Prague airport on warrant from Ukraine is a “dangerous precedent”, which gives the impression that Russian citizens cannot feel safe while in the countries Europeans, Jan Carnogursky, former Slovak Prime Minister and head of the International Association of Friends of Crimea, told Sputnik

PRAGUE (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – September 21, 2021) The detention of Russian citizen Alexander Franchetti at Prague airport under a Ukraine warrant is a “dangerous precedent”, which gives the impression that Russian citizens cannot feel safe when in European countries, Jan Carnogursky, former Slovak prime minister and president of the international association of Friends of Crimea, told Sputnik.

Franchetti was arrested on September 12 under a warrant issued by Ukraine, where he is wanted for his alleged role in the reunification of Crimea with Russia in 2014. Moscow called on Prague to prevent the “politicization” of the case and release the Russian citizen.

“I am closely following the development of the situation with Franchetti and I believe that his detention is a dangerous precedent which may lead to the fact that not every Russian citizen entering the territory of the Member States of the EU will feel there safe, because independence, justice in these countries is not assured, “said Carnogursky.

Carnogursky expressed concern that similar incidents could happen to any Russian, even those that had nothing to do with the Crimean referendum.

“There may be such ‘witnesses’ who will say that such and such a person was in Crimea at one time and participated in God knows what,” he suggested.

Even though the actions of the Czech judicial authorities towards Franchetti did not formally contradict the law, the question of their objectivity is “another question”, which Carnogursky refused to go into further.

“If the Czech Republic had extradited Franchetti to Ukraine, first of all, it would have violated international law on Interpol, which obliges this organization to deal only with criminal and not political matters. And the Franchetti affair is purely political since the Ukrainian authorities are contesting the right of the residents of Crimea to decide on the question of the secession of the peninsula from Ukraine and to join Russia in their referendum “, explained the Slovak politician.

If the Russian national were extradited to Kiev from Prague, the latter would violate the rights of Franchetti himself, given that the legal proceedings against him in Ukraine are unlikely to be objective, added Carnogursky.

However, in recent times the Czech Republic has made many “serious miscalculations” in its policy, so the issue of Franchetti’s extradition to Ukraine remains likely, the Slovak official concluded.

Crimea joined Russia in March 2014, when almost the entire population of the peninsula participating in a regional referendum voted for reunification. Kiev and Western states refused to recognize the results of the vote, imposing economic and political sanctions on Moscow.

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – September 20, 2021) Russia has offered Ukraine to formulate Moscow’s commitments to resolve the conflict in Donbass, but Kiev has pulled out, said a source close to the talks between the advisers politicians and representatives of the Normandy Format foreign affairs ministries. On Monday.

According to the source, all attempts to find out how participants in the negotiating process see a specific settlement process based on the Minsk accords, in line with the position stated, including publicly by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, that Russia is party to the conflict, stubborn silence was the answer.

Ultimately, political advisers to Germany and France suggested that the Russian side call itself an aggressor in the draft outcome document and commit to resolving the conflict, the source said.

Ultimately, Dmitry Kozak turned to Ukrainian Representative Andriy Yermak with a proposal to try to articulate Russia’s obligations to resolve the conflict, taking into account the repeated public statements by Ukrainian officials on this issue. Quite unexpectedly, Yermak chose to “put his head in the sand”, saying it should be done by representatives of Germany and France, “the source said.

TACHKENT, September 20. / TASS /. Moscow does not rule out that Kiev renounces the Minsk agreement, but such a move will prolong the conflict in southeastern Ukraine, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko told media on the sidelines of the conference entitled Russia and Uzbekistan Facing Development and Security Challenges at a New Historical Stage of Interaction.

“I would prefer to avoid speculation about various scenarios. Anything is possible, including a withdrawal from the Minsk accords. However, we believe this is a road that leads nowhere. This will worsen the conflict and prolong it for many years. years, ”he said. said, when asked about the likely implications of Ukraine’s withdrawal from the Minsk agreement.

Rudenko warned that Ukraine’s military build-up and overwhelming support from the West in no way contributes to a peaceful settlement of the conflict in the east of the country.

“We are aware of these military preparations and the help Kiev is receiving from the United States and other countries. As long as the current leadership in Kiev remains unchanged, nothing can be ruled out. We take all of these things into account in the process of our own military planning. We hope that common sense will prevail in Kiev. Hopefully this will not lead to a military scenario, including the situation in Donbass, “he concluded.

Minsk agreements

A peace settlement that has yet to be reached in the Donbass is based on the Minsk Accords, providing for a ceasefire, withdrawal of arms, amnesty, resumption of economic ties and fundamental constitutional reform in Ukraine on the basis of a dialogue with the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics with the aim of decentralizing power in accordance with the special status of certain districts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

However, the negotiation process is in fact blocked due to Ukraine’s refusal to comply with the “political clauses” of the Minsk agreement. On the one hand, Kiev refuses to conduct a direct dialogue with Donetsk and Lugansk. He remains opposed to the inclusion in the Constitution of the special status of the region and demands that it be allowed to establish control of the Donbass border with Russia before the political part of the agreements is implemented. In the meantime, under point nine of the package of measures for the implementation of the Minsk agreements, the restoration of full control of the state border must begin the day after the local elections and not be completed until after a comprehensive political settlement.

The Belarusian House in Ukraine has reported on the release of Belarusians, who were detained by the Ukrainian security services on September 16 and underlines that they are all well.

Belarusian House invites everyone to come to Maidan Nezalezhnosti on Sunday September 19 at 2:00 pm to discuss this case and other similar situations and understand how to “protect yourself from the danger of being detained because you are Belarusian”.

On September 16, Ukrainian security services visited the house rented by Belarusian refugees and arrested four people. Then the House of Belarusians in Ukraine reported that 12 Belarusians had been detained.

Among the detainees was a volunteer Alena Zharkevich, which helps people to relocate from Belarus. She came to Ukraine this year with her son and helped hundreds of Belarusians who found themselves in the country without housing or papers. A few days ago, she took care of the legalization of one of the refugees, who also left Belarus. Along with Alena, three other people were arrested. One of them was a former policeman Yahor Yemelyanau, who left the Home Office on August 11, 2020.

Goalkeeper residences were a staple of Irish international teams, men and women, until five years ago.

Shay Given, with the exception of a brief period of retirement, held the top spot firmly for 15 years.

Centurion Emma Byrne surpassed the 20-year mark as the top pick until her retirement in 2017.

Similar modified models have consumed both teams since – Darren Randolph and Marie Hourihan took over for a few years, only to find themselves ousted by the newcomers.

Teenager Gavin Bazunu snatched control from Mark Travers in Stephen Kenny’s pecking order, while Caoimhín Kelleher adds to the competition.

It was just as tight in the women’s team. In the last campaign, the European qualifiers which ended in December, Hourihan was moved by Courtney Brosnan and then reinstated.

Hourihan’s injuries created a vacancy for the last two matches, first occupied by Brosnan and then Grace Moloney.

The change between the qualifiers against Ukraine and Germany was likely due to Brosnan’s problems in Kiev.

Áine O’Gorman was credited, more like debited, with the own goal which cost Ireland the point of almost guaranteeing a place for the play-offs, but the keeper’s inability to move her feet quickly enough to control the temperamental back pass was a contributing factor. .

Over the next 11 months, O’Gorman applied dry humor when reminded of the concession, saying she will be forever remembered for the calamity, no matter how high she is. at club and international level.

Brosnan, the American-born plug who joined Everton from West Ham United ahead of the Women’s Super League season, also attempted to erase him from the memory bank.

“As an elite top athlete, things happen,” she reflected, speaking for the first time about the incident.

“As much as there is the physical side, the mental side is just as important.

As an elite athlete, you get used to adversity and setbacks. It’s always difficult when things aren’t going your way, but being able to move forward is really important to me.

The prospect means vying for the position of goalkeeper for Vera Pauw’s side for the World Cup qualifiers which begin next month.

Brosnan and Moloney both started a game in the last rally, the two-sided friendly against Iceland in June, and Hourihan’s exclusion from the squad makes it a direct shootout between the two emerging contenders.

First-choice Reading Moloney has the advantage over Brosnan, replacing Everton, but she gave up the warm-up for the weekend’s loss to Arsenal and is uncertain for next Tuesday’s friendly against Australia.

That puts the New Jersey-born goalie in a position to showcase her credentials on her fifth pick in the final audition for the qualifying doubles against Sweden and Finland.

Ideally, she would have playing time behind her to strengthen that field, but accepted the risk of idleness by choosing to challenge England international Sandy MacIver at Everton.

“The main objective is to play for both Everton and Ireland. This is one of the most difficult things when choosing a club. You have to look at everything: where you are going to challenge, the playing time and how much you will improve your game. I spoke to Vera and goalkeeper coach Jan Willem van Ede about what was best for me.

“There’s a balance in saying, ‘If I go here, how much better will I be? A lot of that was taken into account when moving to Everton.

At least she’ll have fans in the ground at her first opportunity to line up at home. Eligible through ancestors of Roscommon and Kerry, she claims no descent to any of the Kingdom’s legendary GAA Brosnans.

“Em, not to my knowledge,” she replies of the lineage. “But having that name must be good for me!” “

Kiev has condemned Russia’s plan to allow hundreds of thousands of people living in parts of eastern Ukraine ruled by militias to vote in Russian parliamentary elections on Sunday when they are expected to support the party favorite of the Kremlin.

According to Kiev, Russia has distributed more than 600,000 passports in parts of Ukraine’s Donetsk and Luhansk regions held since 2014 by Moscow-led separatists, amid fighting with government troops that has left more than 14,000 dead. The Kremlin also annexed Crimea seven years ago, after a revolution in Ukraine tipped the country westward.

“I emphasize once again that under international law, Russia’s only status in Crimea and in the regions of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions is that of an occupying state,” Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro said on Thursday. Kuleba.

“I understand that we cannot cancel the elections and that the Russians will do whatever they see fit there, because they control this territory. But everything has an end, and so I am sure that the Russian occupation will also end … and all the rights violations recorded by the Russian Federation will have to be paid.

Kuleba said Ukraine would respond to Russia’s inclusion of separatist-controlled areas in its election “in the established manner: we will take note of violations and appeal to our partners.”

Russia allows people living in separatist Donetsk and Luhansk “people’s republics” to vote across the border in Russia’s Rostov region, which is also one of seven provinces where voters can vote online .

Bus and trains

Separatist officials in Donetsk said they would provide 825 buses and 12 trains to take people to Rostov, in what Mr Kuleba described as “election carousels, transporting voters to make it look like an expression of the will of the people “.

Most voters in militia-controlled areas are expected to support Russia’s ruling United Russia party, which is closely linked to Russian President Vladimir Putin but has seen its ratings drop steadily in recent years.

“Why is Putin doing it? Recently declared Ukrainian Security Council Secretary Oleksiy Danilov. “It’s to get 500,000 more votes in the election.”

The West condemned the distribution of passports by Russia to residents of eastern Ukraine, but Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that “if a Russian citizen living in another country wishes to come to Russia for vote here, he or she has the right to do so. so”.

The European Parliament this week approved a report according to which the EU must “be prepared to refuse recognition of the Russian parliament if the legislative elections of 2021 (…) are conducted in violation of democratic principles and international law”.

The report urged the EU to engage with the Russian people while opposing Mr. Putin’s regime, which it described as a “stagnant authoritarian kleptocracy led by a lifelong president surrounded by a circle of ‘oligarchs’.

Anthony Taylor, who will lead Arsenal’s trip to Burnley this weekend, had a moment to forget as he refereed Dynamo Kiev against Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The 42-year-old is widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s best referees, but he got a bit ahead of himself in the 82nd minute of the clash as he sent off Kiev midfielder Denys Garmash for a second bookable offense, even though he has not received a first yellow card

Taylor appeared to indicate on the pitch that he was giving the Ukrainian a second yellow for several infractions, but after the Kiev team surrounded him to point out to him that he had never booked Garmash, he quickly changed her mind, giving her a reservation instead. .

It’s one of those moments that happens every now and then, and Taylor will want to quickly erase the incident from her memory before taking charge of the match at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Both teams enter the game battling for points, as Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have 16e in the table after their first win of the season against other Norwich opponents last weekend, while Sean Dyche’s Burnley has taken just one point in his opening four matches.

The Gunners should be boosted by extra time on the training ground this week, as for the first time in 25 years they are not competing in Europe.

Neither Arteta nor Dyche will be worried about Taylor’s howl on Tuesday night, but instead will be focused on getting some much-needed points on the board.
