From San Jacinto, California;

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that deputies were sent to the store at 11:20 a.m. in the 700 block of San Jacinto Avenue.

“During the investigation they found a shop owner, Nabeel Qandah, 42-year-old from San Jacinto, chased two subjects who were stealing two boxes of butane from his store,” the statement said. “Qandah attempted to stop the subjects who entered a waiting vehicle and drove away. Qandah fired his handgun at the vehicle.”

Shortly after the shooting, Juan Miguel Macias, 41, San Jacinto, arrived at a nearby hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his arm.

The sheriff’s statement said investigators learned Macias and a 16-year-old person, who was not named, had taken butane from the store without paying.

“As they drove away, it appears Qandah discharged his firearm,” the statement said.

From St. Paul, Iowa;

A 15-year-old was arrested Friday afternoon several hours after he allegedly invaded a rural Lee County home, pulled a knife and demanded money from the residents.

The teenager, whose name has not been released because of his age, was arrested Friday afternoon in Fort Madison by Lee County sheriff’s detectives, said Lee County Sheriff Stacy Weber.

He was chased from the residence in the 1400 block of 210th Avenue in rural St. Paul and suffered injuries when he was assaulted by the homeowner, whose name has not been released.

“I can’t comment at this time on very many details of the case, but I will say the homeowners were instrumental in the investigation and subsequent arrest,” Weber said, adding the investigation is ongoing and additional arrests could be made.

From Midland, Michigan;

Investigators say it happened just after 1:30 a.m. Monday when two men allegedly were caught breaking into a vehicle on East Ashman Street.

Officers say they were chasing the suspects on foot when one of the men pulled out a gun and shot at police. The officer returned fire, killing the man.

The second suspect was arrested.

    At least one perp whose recidivism rate has dropped to zero.

    And the world is a more peaceful place……

    OK, OK, all right. To the really important question:

    Are residents of Riverside County who pronounce the name of the town something other than “sahn-hah-SEEN-toe” all racists?

    The fella in Riverside could be in trouble – midday, no active threat, subject retreating in a car… given it is in the PRC, he may be facing charges.

    Try pronouncing that street in Houston…. San Jasinto, San Hahsinto, San Jaseento… hundreds of variation for the name of arguably the most important battle in Texas history.

    Qandah is in a world of shit.
