MAN ACCUSED OF SHOOTING A HOUSTON POLICE OFFICER ARRESTED!

Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in the shooting of an off-duty HPD officer that occurred at 9757 Pine Lake Drive about 10:30 p.m. on Sunday (May 30).

The suspect, Josue Tomas Gallegos (H/m, 33), is charged with aggravated assault against a public servant in the 351st State District Court.  A booking photo of Gallegos is attached to this news release.

Officer John Brown, 33, was transported to Memorial Hermann – Texas Medical Center where he was treated and released.

Officer Brown was sworn in as an HPD officer in June 2012 and is assigned to the Homicide Division.

HPD Special Investigations Unit Sergeant R. Flores and Detectives J. Turner, R. Anderson and A. Hurtado reported:

Officer Brown approached a suspicious male on the top floor of a parking garage at the apartment complex at the above address.  As Officer Brown attempted to detain the suspect, the suspect brandished a firearm and fired several shots at the officer, striking him in the leg. 

The suspect fled the scene on foot.

Further investigation led to the identification of Gallegos as a suspect in this case.  Last Friday (June 4), he was arrested and charged for his role in this incident.

NOOSES FOUND HANGING AT AMAZON FACILITY NOW ITS SHUTDOWN!

Amazon is shutting down construction at a facility in Connecticut after several noose-like ropes were discovered at the site in recent weeks.

The first incident was April 27 when a construction supervisor reported that a hangman’s noose had been found on a second-floor steel beam, Windsor police said.

The latest was Wednesday when officers on a private duty assignment “were made aware of the discovery of a rope which could be interpreted as a noose hanging within overhead beams on the site,” police said.

“We continue to be deeply disturbed by the incidents happening at the construction site in Windsor and have ordered its shut down until necessary security measures can be put in place,” Amazon spokesperson Kelly Nantel said in a statement Thursday.

The rope found Wednesday will be sent to the state crime lab.

The FBI is involved in the investigation, David Sundberg, special agent in charge of the bureau’s New Haven field office, said, and lending its resources to Windsor.

Seven possible nooses have been discovered at the site. After the first was found, police said they were informed on April 29 that five others were found.

GROSS: ANA CARDENAS WOKE UP TO HUMAN BLOOD AND BODILY FLUIDS FLOWING FROM HER CEILING FAN INTO HER FACE!

Firefighters made a gruesome discovery when a woman called them panicking after she awoke in her Texas apartment to find blood being spattered onto her from her ceiling fan.

Ana Cardenas was understandably distraught when she called 911 from her apartment in El Paso.

She told KTSM-TV that she was sleeping when she was awakened at about 4 a.m. by the sensation of a liquid spattering onto her, her bed and the rest of her bedroom.

It was human blood and other bodily fluids dripping through her ceiling fan.

“It grossed me out, I was in shock, I thought this isn’t real this is a dream, wake up. I called maintenance and they said are you sure and I said blood is falling on me,” Cardenas said in a translation from Spanish.

The blood was spattered onto her bed, the walls, her furniture, and in her hair.

Firefighters later broke down the door to the apartment directly above hers and found the corpse of her neighbor right above her fan.

Cardenas said the man above her was between the ages of 55 and 70, and that police told her he died of natural causes.

They believe the man had been decomposing for up to six days.

She said that he was laying on carpet but the blood had seeped through that and through the ceiling into her apartment.

“They took my fan down and a pool of blood came pouring down,” Cardenas told KTSM.

The story got even worse.

She said that Cielo Vista Apartments told her that her losses would not be covered by their insurance. And although they disinfected her apartment, she showed KTSM that there were flies buzzing in the bedroom and a foul odor remained.

Cardenas says she is traumatized from the incident and can’t eat or sleep. She opened a GoFundMe account to help her pay her relocation costs and has raised over $15,000.

FORMER HOUSTON TV REPORTER DIES FROM COVID-19!

RUCKS RUSSELL

From Mike McGuff:

John “Rucks” Russell, former KHOU 11 reporter, has died.

Former KHOU 11 reporter Doug Miller received the news from Russell’s wife this afternoon.

On his personal Facebook profile, Miller posted a nice tribute for Russell and gave me permission to re-post it here on my blog: 

“Heartbreaking news about a fine former Houston television reporter.  Rucks Russell has died.  His wife says he died of COVID, which he contracted while caring for his brother who had also contracted the virus.  

Here’s the kind of man Rucks was:  His real name was John, but he decided to adopt his mother’s maiden name as his air name.  So every time his mother saw that handsome face on television, she heard her son honoring her by saying her name. 

 He was a conspicuously decent man and a exemplar of rectitude, and he has left this world much too soon.”

Russell worked at KHOU 11 from 2006 to 2016. 

He left the station to work as the Communications Director for U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee in Washington DC.

SNAKE SEASON IN TEXAS!

Copperhead

As it gets hotter in Texas more and more residents are posting their encounters with snakes.

This is the latest from one of the subscribers on the NextDoor app in the Woodlands / Spring area.

Have you seen snakes in your neighborhood yet this summer?

Snake Encounter:

Sneaky Snake. We were on a walk tonight (wife, son & me) in our neighborhood and my wife all of sudden said, “Eeeeewww, I stepped on something squishy!” We looked back with our phone lights and saw this guy. I’m glad Mr. Penny Head was OK with getting stepped on. Didn’t curl-up to get ready to strike or anything. My wife won’t be walking at night without a flashlight turned on anymore. I marked exactly where we saw it on the street. It was about 1/4 way across the road.
