Evans County deputy fatally shoots man who attacked him with rocks, GBI says

By Shaddi Abusaid
An Evans County deputy shot and killed man who threw rocks at the officer during a a chase early Saturday and then lunged at him, the GBI said.

The fatal officer-involved shooting occurred shortly before 1 a.m. when the sheriff’s office responded to the intersection of Ga. 169 and Archie Mitchell Road in Claxton after receiving a call about a man standing in the middle of the roadway, authorities said.

The deputy arrived and and located 47-year-old Yassin Mohamad, who reportedly had several encounters with law enforcement in the 12 hours leading up to the incident. “When the deputy attempted to make contact with Mohamad, he fled from the deputy and an altercation ultimately ensued,” the GBI said Saturday in a news release.

Man fatally shot, another injured in Bonne Terre Friday

Bobby Radford
An investigation is underway after a man was fatally shot and another man was “slashed and cut” early Friday morning in Bonne Terre.

According to Bonne Terre Police Chief Doug Calvert, officers were dispatched to a residence on South Long Street just before 12:30 a.m. in reference to a stabbing/gunshot situation in progress.

A male subject in his mid-30s, who has now been identified as Nick Wann, had reportedly been shot in the chest.

Calvert said Wann reportedly entered the residence and “slashed and cut” a man at the residence, also believed to be in his mid-30s. Officers believe the injured man then retrieved a handgun and shot Wann. The two men knew each other.

Concealed-carry holder claims self-defense after gunfire kills 16-year-old boy in Ashburn: police
Rodrigo Rangel was a passenger in a vehicle when someone shot him in the head in the 3900 block of West 83rd Street.

By David Struett
A gunman who allegedly shot and killed a teen Thursday on the Southwest Side claims he was firing back at another shooter, police say.

The 16-year-old boy was a passenger in a vehicle when someone shot him in the head about 10:35 a.m. in the 3900 block of West 83rd Street, Chicago police said.

A female driver took him to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

Rodrigo Rangel was pronounced dead at 11 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A 45-year-old concealed-carry holder who was seated in another vehicle claims someone fired at him first, but detectives are working to verify those allegations, police said. He was arrested, but no charges have been filed.

The Chicago shoot seems dicey, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes. I’ll keep an eye out for updates. Otherwise, we have a Monday Trifecta. Thanks for the assist, GB. Rocks to a gun fight?

    What ever became of that PL14 Kalash pistol? The article was dated 2015. Was it adapted, or abandoned?

    • David says:

      Sounds like the PL15 is being phased in with Spetznatz etc. Does not look like they will do a wholesale replacement of their Makarovs like we did with Berettas v. 1911s, even though the 9×19 is demonstrably superior to the 9×18 Mak.

      • David says:

        PS – not a typo, PL15 superceded PL14.

        • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

          What “defects” did the PL14 have that were corrected by the PL15?
          Just interesting to follow the links.

          • David says:

            PL14 was an all metal hammer-fired sa/da pistol with a fairly slow trigger reset. The 15 is an alloy frame striker fired gun with a faster reset for faster follow up shots, doubles etc. Read that on a search to be honest, don’t think I have seen anything more recent than a Makarov personally.

  2. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman says:

    Sounds like little Mo won’t be throwing rocks at the po-po no mo’.
    I wonder if he was affected in the head by the fasting/feasting of Ramalamadingdong?

    Excellent start to the work week. Wilted Willy will be proud. The Fruitcake Capital of the World is minus another nut. Maybe he was mad cause the Vidalia Onion Festival was cancelled. And yeah, rocks to a gunfight? Suicide by cop? Even dumber than the knife to a gunfight idea in story 2. Chiraq shooting does seem somewhat dicey, or maybe they just don’t have all the details yet. Did the 16 yo catch a round meant for someone else or is this Darwin getting a head start? Shame.

    Gun pr0n looks like Luger had carnal congress with 1911. Got lost in the linky for awhile. You knew that would happen, didn’t you

      “Got lost in the linky for awhile. You knew that would happen, didn’t you”

      That’s exactly what they’re for, GB.
      *grin*

    Kinda weird looking but I like that low bore to hand axis.
    I have only been to Chicago twice. Once on my way to Montana and once on my way back. Only stopped to get fuel and if I don’t ever go back it will be too soon. They must hold some kind of record for killing everyday people there.

    That gat is uglier than a hunting party of “Predator” aliens.

    Did the AK-47 gat have gittens?
