Multiple Cars Record Real Shooter at Night in Silver Spring, MD

Last year on December 13, in the middle of the night on the busy street in the heart of downtown Silver Spring Maryland, many clubgoers were shocked by gun shoots. Cars that were parked on the street silently collected all the pieces of evidence. A Tesla EV’s video camera was recording what was really going on that night.

Multiple records showed that the Thayer Avenue and Mayor Lane, a Chrysler scraped an illegally parked Mercedes in an alley. Two men jumped on the windshield of the Chrysler and twitched at the doors but the driver fled as a gunman, identified as John Tomlinson grabbed a handgun from an SUV. Tomlinson ran over and opened fire 9 times. Many people in the clubs lowered their postures on the floor and one bullet hit a building right next to where some of the people had been standing.

According to WUSA, Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy called the shooting “callous behavior.” He also stated that “It’s a miracle no one was killed,” The Tesla captured the best picture of John Tomlinson firing, and the owner of the car contacted local police to share the footage.

Within 45 days after the incident, the police caught John Tomlinson who had two guns in his possession. “They identified the one of gunmen from the video,” McCarthy said. “A detective said ‘I know that guy!’ That’s how we identified the shooter.” The other man on the video who jumped on the Chrysler, Osman Sesay was shot to death by police two weeks later in another violent incident.

A murder suspect, Kaitlin Armstrong(34) was captured at a hotel in Costa Rica on June 29 after she fled to the country from Austin, TX through NJ airport on May 18.  Armstrong used fake IDs and cosmetic surgery on her face to change her appearance and avoid detection, according to the U.S. Marshals, on Thursday.

When she was arrested, U.S. Marshals said her appearance had changed, with her hair being chopped to shoulder-length and dyed brown. Her nose was different — there was bruising under her eyes. She told authorities the change was from a “surfing accident.”

Armstrong is accused of the deadly shooting and killing of Moriah Wilson (25) on May 11 in East Austin. Moriah was the brightest cyclist in the U.S., and she had plans to achieve her dream from gravel to mountain on cycle worldwide. She came to Texas from Colorado for the race,” Gravel Locos race in Hico” and died 3 days before the race. She was expected to win the race before her death.

Armstrong used the names Beth and Liz Martin to conceal her identity, Marshals said. She wanted to be a yoga teacher in Costa Rica, but she is now in Travis County Jail and is being held on a $3.5 million bond.

Boko Haram attacked the Kuje maximum security prison in Nigeria and freed nearly 1,000 inmates including 64 Boko Haram extremist group inmates on Wednesday. Explosions and gunfires were exchanged. The attackers went through the hole from the blasts and freed the inmates.

Some recaptured inmates lay on the ground by the prison entrance near the bodies of those who died in the attack. Although many have been recaptured and turned into the police, at least 300 inmates are still missing.

The Abuja jailbreak occurred around the same time when the gunmen launched a daring attack on an advancing security convoy preparing for the visit of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari in the northwest Katsina state. Those attackers “opened fire on the convoy from ambush positions but were repelled by the military,” a presidential spokesman said.

Boko Haram, the extremist insurgency in Nigeria is accountable for much of the violence including kidnapping high schoolers along with more than 35,000 death and displacing more than 2 million people.

Homicide methods are by gun (69 cases), knife (7), and others (4). Average victims’ ages are 35 and the average arrestee’s age is 29.

Recently, A 15-year-old teenage boy was shot and died at the scene of a small musical event, where he called his mother before death. No one could help him despite there being a crowd, other than a wounded police officer.

Why do we hear about homicide news which is related to gun violence every single day? Don’t we have any solutions? Do we have any preventive programs? IF there are no healthy children, there will be no healthy future.

According to Gov. Larry Hogan at a conference, he stated, “The State Police responded, pursued the suspect, the suspect fired and shot the state trooper in the shoulder, who then returned fire and shot him back,”.
“Gunshots were exchanged between the suspect and the Trooper. Both were injured and transported for medical treatment,” the release says.
This incident is the 254th mass shooting this year, according to CNN.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Carly Hose said the suspect was a man, but she didn’t yet know other details about the shooting, like whether the shooter was an employee of Columbia Machine.
