Attempted robbery, shootout on Tuscarora Reservation leads to high-speed chase and 1 death

By Mark Sommer
One man is dead after an aborted robbery on the Tuscarora Reservation early Sunday led to a high-speed chase that ended with the arrest of three suspects in the Town of Wheatfield, according to the the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office and Lewiston police.

The Sheriff’s Office dispatch received a call of shots fired in the area of Mount Hope Road in the Town of Lewiston. The Sheriff’s Office said three armed suspects entered the house, exchanged shots with the homeowner and fled the scene. Two Lewiston police officers and a Niagara County sheriff’s deputy applied life-saving first aid, including a tourniquet, before EMS crews came and transported the homeowner to Erie County Medical Center.

A patrol car located and pursued the suspect’s vehicle with assistance from Lewiston police and the State Police. The pursuit ended on Lockport Road in the Town of Wheatfield, with three suspects taken into custody. A fourth individual in the vehicle did not respond to medical aid and was determined to be deceased, the Sheriff’s Office said. Officials did not say if that individual might have been shot by the homeowner.

No names have been released.

West Hollywood homeowner pulls gun on serial thief
Man takes off without being shot, police now searching for him

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – A homeowner turned a gun on a man stealing from his home. They believe it is the same man who went onto their property and stole before.

The video is startling to look at as the homeowner, who doesn’t want to be identified, pulled a gun on the thief. Little did the serial stealer know that cameras caught every move.

The homeowner told Local 10 that the thief took thousands of dollars worth of tools from a back shed.

“He got a compressor, chainsaw, street saw and pellet rifle,” said the homeowner.

On Tuesday around 11 a.m., the thief came back to the house on a bike, parked it, then walked away with a wheelbarrow full of stuff.

But it didn’t stop there. At 3 p.m., the serial thief returned to the home to get the bike that he left and that was when the homeowner confronted him.

A pair of DRTs and one in the wind, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes. Not bad for a Monday.

And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance?

Seems as if the natives got a little restless. Well it’s good that one is resting at room temperature and 3 chilling in the cooler. And another dumbass that doesn’t realize that it’s (OVER). Maybe Hollywood’s Take Two will result in a perp walk for bicycle boy.

Nice long distance shoulder mounted telegraph machine you gots there Mister. You do know that some fruit is gonna be triggered by that orange banana clip thingie. One of AOC’s staff asked her how to spell orange. “The color or the fruit” she replied.


Side note: The Tuscarora left North Caroline after loosing a war to the British in 1715 in which the Cherokee fought on the British side. They join the Iroquois Nation.


Re: The West Hollywood story, what the hell is a “street saw”?


Maybe a portable or hand pushed(like a mower)circular disk saw? The portable kind is used in masonry to saw ‘bats’ or half bricks more precisely than using a brick hammer, or to cut stone to fit.

The push kind is used to saw green, but dried concrete to put cuts in so it will crack in an aesthetically ordered way and not spoil a driveway or road.

You can use the portable one to cut rebar too.

Stihl, Husqvarna, and Milwaukee are popular brands. Just my guess having used those years ago.

I guess I’d call the push one a ‘street saw.’ before I’d use that to describe the portable one.

Very dusty job. You want a mask if you want long term lungs.
