Bay Area Man Gets Served After Kicking Asian Actor’s Audi R8 Because It’s ‘Too Loud’“So basically Asian dude got his Audi R8 kicked by white dude because apparently it was ‘too loud’ lmao. Asian dude gave him that combo tho,” the post said before it was deleted.
A friend of Delicia Cordon posted the photo showing the woman with a bloodied face, swollen eyes and multiple cuts. The woman, identified only as Mia, made harrowing allegations against the NFL star.“@shadymccoy is THE DEVIL!!!! YOU ARE AN ANIMAL!!!!!! We didn’t say anything about how you beat your dog “Henny” into kidney failure,” the woman wrote. “Let’s not talk about all the times my best friend had to stop you from VICIOUSLY beating your son for small things like peeing in the bed. We kept quiet about your drug usage ... all the ILLEGAL steroids and needles you were using, but we will not keep quiet about this!!!!!!"She continued: “I can’t believe you did this to my best friend!!!!! YOUR KARMA IS GOING TO BE SO REAL!!!!!! The world needs to know what type of animal you really are!!!!!!!

However, McCoy’s lawyer said at the time no criminal charges were pending and probable cause was never found.The Bills were aware of the McCoy allegations and were investigating, a source told ESPN.

Vermont woman shown on video cutting cop’s throat with knife acquitted of attempted murder
Jennifer Berube was acquitted of an attempted murder for attacking a Rutland, Vt., police officer with a knife in December 2012. (policeone.com)
A Vermont woman who sneaked up behind a police officer while under arrest and allegedly tried to slit his throat with a knife was found not guilty of attempted murder.
Jennifer Berube, 40, was acquitted of attempted second-degree murder and a lesser charge of attempted aggravated assault on Friday by a jury in Rutland, a city in western Vermont about 60 miles south of Burlington.
Berube and her former husband, John MacLean III, were arrested in December 2012 for trying to use a stolen credit card, the Times Argus newspaper reported.
While in police custody, Berube, who was homeless and hooked on heroin at the time, believed she heard MacLean trying to hang himself with his shoelaces in his holding cell, the Times Argus newspaper reported.
In a bid to help, she slipped a Leatherman tool out of a hidden jacket pocket and attacked Officer Damon Nguyen with it.
Surveillance footage from inside the station house showed Berube grabbing Nguyen by the neck with a 2-inch blade in her hand before getting overpowered by several other officers.
Berube, 40, was caught on security cameras trying to slit Officer Damon Nguyen's throat with a knife during an arrest. Berube later told cops she was trying to help her ex-husband, who she believed was trying to hang himself in his holding cell.

Nguyen suffered a cut near his jugular vein and was treated at a hospital.
He has since recovered and was back on the job.
It took the 12-man jury less than two hours to acquit Berube.

Kim's company, KKW Beauty, is looking into the June 30th event that left a Native American woman stunned when a white store worker allegedly asked if she was Mexican and said: "Get back in line and wait or I'll make a call and get you deported."
Nicole Johnny, an MBA student at Pepperdine University, told babe about what happened when she went to KKW Beauty's Los Angeles store with her mom and brother on Saturday night. "I was really shocked," she said. "We waited maybe an hour to get in the store. We were the last people in line and there were two security guards, one was African American and one was white."
Nicole, 28, waited her turn to be called inside, and seeing the door open and nobody in front of her, she said she took a few paces forward before the white security guard snapped: "Get back in line and wait or I'll make a call and get you deported. You're Mexican, right?"
"I felt very uncomfortable and very unwelcome," Nicole told babe. She says the other security guards noticed and let her inside with her mom and brother.
Once inside, she said she started testing makeup palettes to see which one she wanted to buy, when the white security guard came up to her and said: "If you're not going to buy anything, I need you to leave."
"I looked at him and I was like, 'are you serious?' I asked him why, because there was no-one in line waiting to come into the store, we were the last people – my mom was making a purchase!" He stepped away when a female staff member asked if she could help her find anything, but Nicole says she noticed him continuing to watch her. She didn't buy anything and then left.
"We’re there for makeup and perfume, we’re not there to be told we'll get deported," Nicole added. "It’s so insulting to say that to people of color… I’m Navajo, I’m indigenous. I had to explain myself and my cultural heritage to this guy who wanted to deport me."
Nicole messaged KKW Beauty, a makeup empire so successful it made $14 million in its first 20 minutes of existing. A rep responded to Nicole and told they would investigate the matter immediately. "We are so sorry to hear about your experience at our store," they wrote to Nicole. "We have a zero tolerance for discrimination of any kind."
Woman Expertly Destroys ‘Crusty Western Men’ Who Call Asian Men ‘Gay’
A woman’s epic post calling out some “Western men” who call Asian men “gay” based certain masculinity standards has gone viral on Facebook.
lol I hate crusty ass western men who call Asian men gay for being more likely to be impeccably groomed and dressed with a solid skincare routine. like ok robert you completely have the right to have a neck beard and smell like shit and wear your socks n sandals n cargo shorts combo but when yoonsung is over here looking 25 at age 47 and you just turned 33 on your 18th birthday you might wanna reconsider wearing a face mask or two occasionally.
The woman who made the post and goes by “Joanne” (@smallicecoffee), is a 22-year-old American living in Seoul, South Korea where she works at a travel agency. “I made the post originally to poke fun at how toxic masculinity really hurts everyone including the men involved in it,” she told NextShark. “As an Asian American who originally grew up in Texas, I was made hyper aware of my ‘otherness’ from a very young age.”“The post itself can hopefully make men, particularly Asian men, feel more validated in their habits, that everyone and anyone can and should do whatever they want without unnecessary labels tossed at them,” she added. “Joanne” says that most people are taking her post well and laughing at it with her. There are a few handful of people reacting negatively, but she remains unfazed.”“With the exception of a handful of people I don’t think anyone’s really had an issue, but even if they do, whatever. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinions,” she said.

On June 18, 2018, XXXTentacion (real name: Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy) was shot to death during what police suspect was a robbery outside a motorcycle shop in Deerfield Beach, Florida. Another young man, 22-year old Dedrick Williams, has already been arrested and charged with his murder. Meanwhile, thousands are expected to attend the rapper’s memorial Wednesday at the stadium that typically hosts the NHL’s Florida Panthers hockey team.
But XXXTentacion is not someone I can mourn. Although his death has been met with an outpouring of sympathy, it has also revealed something dark and complicated and ultimately inescapable about the state of American hip-hop culture today.
Although his death has been met with an outpouring of sympathy, it has also revealed something dark about the state of American hip-hop culture today.
XXXTentacion’s rise to stardom is inexplicably tied to violence. In April 2015, he joined forces with Ski Mask the Slump God to create the Members Only Club; the group’s mixtapes would take the hip-hop world by storm. But only a few months later, in November of 2015, XXXTentacion was arrested for aggravated battery and home invasion. A year later he was accused of beating his pregnant girlfriend,strangling her and holding her head underwater. In fact he was awaiting trial on charges aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment and witness tampering when he was killed.
Simply put, I don’t believe separating the person from their art is possible, especially not for someone like XXXTentacion. His acts of abuse are too well documented.
My introduction to the rapper occurred first via the allegations against him — and then via his music. His ever-growing presence in the hip-hop world was a test of that world's questionable moral compass. If left unchecked, it seems clear that XXXTentacion's rap sheet would have doubled in size over the years. But just as importantly, it seems like his fans were ready to forgive him no matter what he did. A hero to his followers, he allegedly beat a concertgoer in the face with his microphone, later claiming self-defense. How can we separate the person from their art when the two are mirror images of each other?
One of XXXTentacion’s most famous early songs, “Look At Me,” is an example of everything that made the rapper both popular and deeply problematic.
One of XXXTentacion’s most famous early songs, “Look At Me,” is an example of everything that made the rapper both popular and deeply problematic. His music was clearly a reflection of his lifestyle, and fans loved him for it. His abrasive lyrics scratch themselves through a blown-out stereo sound. Sonically, the track is a lo-fi, gritty warbling that combines hallmarks of both hip-hop and indie rock.
Enamored with his innovative work inside the recording booth, the music community turned a blind eye to his behavior outside of it. XXL Magazine selected him for its prestigious XXL Freshmen cover in 2017. After Spotify pulled the rapper’s music from its playlists after the allegations against him went public, it was pressure from Kendrick Lamar’s camp that reportedly got XXXTentacion reinstated on the streaming platform. And in the days following his murder, mainstream stars like Kanye West, Diddy, J. Cole and Gucci Mane have all mourned his death on social media.
So how does one measure such a short and violent life? In Snapchat videos or Billboard Chart Numbers? The story of XXXTentacion is an intimately American one. When I first wrote about XXXTentacion back in March, I did not think I would have to write about him again. Surely hip-hop would soon draw the line at a man accused of such brutality. And yet, how I can be so surprised when history repeats itself?
With gangsta-rap solidifying its foothold in modern hip-hop, violence against women has become commonplace and acceptable. As a student of the game, XXXTentacion is an amalgamation of all the generations of artists who came before him. The impact of his legacy will be hip-hop’s problem to reconcile — or to brush aside. Those on the other side of the conversation argue that XXXTentacion was attempting to rectify his sins and become a better person. It's unclear if that's true or not, but I don't believe that he deserves the benefit of the doubt. Actions must have consequences, even for the rich and talented.
Despite XXXTentacion’s legal troubles attracting more headlines than his music releases, he climbed the charts with near-unstoppable power. Meanwhile, media outlets did little to temper the growing fever. Platforms that pushed back against his violence only served to galvanize his fan base. Outlets that refused to cover or write about him faced a backlash.
Platforms that pushed back against again his violence only served to galvanize his fan base. Outlets that refused to cover or write about him faced a backlash.
When music site DJ Booth declined to review XXXTentacion’s latest album, for example, one fan’s letter protesting the decision struck a chord. “He is the new generation's troubled mind,” the reader wrote. XXXTentacion’s power was that his work articulated the pain of a generation — or at least, one corner of it. He understood there was a community of listeners out there drowning in depression and he found a way to reach them. There’s something deeply personal and humanizing about his music, and it allowed fans to look the other way. They still are. He has something they need. They believe he is someone they need.
And his violent and untimely death will likely memorialize him in the eyes of a new generation of hip-hop fans. Indeed, his death has already made his music more popular than ever. Right now, there is a community of rap fans who will remember where they were when XXXTentacion died. That is what I fear: That history will ultimately erase his sins. Death does not absolve XXXTentacion of anything.
And so I will remember XXXTentacion for who he was in life: A young man who was hurting who then saw fit to inflict harm onto others. To some he was a troubled young man trying to right his wrongs and to others he was a woman-beater and an armed robber. I think we should observe XXXTentacion as a whole, but more importantly we cannot excuse his violence. A human life is never black and white. I find him a condemnable person. I find him a polarizing one.

NYPD cop gets eight years in prison for running cocaine, pot An NYPD cop convicted of delivering cocaine and pot for side cash in what she came to learn was an undercover Internal Affairs Bureau sting was sentenced to eight years in prison Tuesday — the minimum she could have faced. Nysia Stroud, 30, was convicted of high-level drug possession and official misconduct at trial in Manhattan Supreme Court. She faced up to 20 years on each of the two top counts and the sentences could have run consecutively. Stroud, with a courier she knew as Lisa — really an undercover — delivered drugs between Washington Heights and W. 96th St. between April and June 2017. She pocketed between $250 and $1,000 for the handful of drug runs, evidence at her trial showed. Justice Ruth Pickholz told Stroud at her sentencing she “did betray the public trust” and “made some very poor choices,” before shipping the former law enforcement official upstate to serve the next several years behind bars. "You gave up a wonderful career by breaking the law,” Pickholz added. “You of all people should have known better.”The judge was unmoved by Stroud’s long-shot bid to have her felony convictions tossed so she could join the military — insisting she should not be defined by the verdict. “Having been raised in a poverty-stricken area in Brownsville in Brooklyn, I am blessed to not have become a product of my environment,” Stroud said. “I do not believe that my true character was conveyed to you,” she added. “I always have been a person of integrity.”Stroud was already on modified duty and assigned to the Fleet Services Division when she was busted last June.
The Internal Affairs Bureau had been on her case for two years after she was caught in her uncle’s apartment during a drug raid. She was not charged in connection with that search. Her attorney Alex Grosshtern argued at trial that the NYPD planted an attractive lesbian undercover, just his client’s “type,” to lure Stroud into the drug deliveries. “A reasonable jury could have come to a different conclusion,” he argued at the sentencing.
Eighth suspect arrested in innocent Bronx teen’s murder Police collared an eighth suspect Tuesday in the gang
Eighth suspect arrested in innocent Bronx teen’s murder Police collared an eighth suspect Tuesday in the gang murder of an innocent Bronx teen — as six others arrested in New Jersey were ordered back to New York to stand trial. Newly arrested Elvin Garcia was charged with murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon, police said. “The brutal nature of this crime, we will leave literally no stone unturned until we make sure that we get justice and we make sure that everyone involved in this incident are brought to justice,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said in announcing the latest arrest.
Garcia was awaiting arraignment in Bronx Criminal Court Tuesday evening. News of the new arrest came as a New Jersey judge ordered the extradition of six suspects captured in Paterson Sunday. The crew — Danel Fernandez, Joniki Martinez, Jose Muniz, Jose Taverez, Manuel Rivera and Santiago Rodriguez — appeared in Passaic County Court in New Jersey on Tuesday. Another suspect, Kevin Alvarez, was arrested in the Bronx and pleaded not guilty to murder charges Monday night. The reputed members of the ruthless Dominican gang Trinitarios are accused of slaughtering 15-year-old aspiring NYPD detective Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz outside a Bronx deli last week because they mistook him for someone who made a sex tape with one of the gangsters’ sisters, police sources said. But their public defender whined in court that their families have been threatened. Judith Fallon, deputy public defender for Passaic County, said the six men are “extremely concerned” for their families in the wake of their arrests. “Social media has been very active about this case. Their families are being threatened, children,” she said. The suspects will be transferred to Bronx Criminal Court on Wednesday, according to DA Darcel Clark. City Councilman Ritchie Torres is calling on Clark to lock them up and throw away the keys. “Gang members who drag a young teen out of a bodega and then hack him to death repeatedly with knives and a machete deserve to rot in prison for the rest of their lives,” he wrote in a letter obtained by The Post.
Doctors Remove Live Worm Crawling Under Woman’s Face
The parasitic roundworm in question can live up to two years in a human if it isn’t removed and can move from the face to the buttocks.
A Russian woman bugged by a strange lump on her face was even more shocked to discover the cause: a live worm.
According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the 32-year-old woman first noticed strange nodules below her left eye that later moved above her eye and then down to her upper lip. She told doctors the nodules appeared after she visited a rural area outside Moscow, where she was bitten repeatedly by mosquitoes.
The nodules caused occasional itching and burning, but she said she had no other symptoms.
New England Journal Of Medicine
Doctors quickly identified the suspect ― a long, parasitic roundworm called Dirofilaria reopens typically spread by mosquitoes and hosted by dogs and other carnivores. They removed the squirming lump from the woman’s face using local anesthetic and a pair of forceps.
It could have been worse, according to Natalia Pshenichnaya, a physician who studies infectious diseases at Rostov State Medical University in Rostov, Russia.
She told NPR that in 20 percent of cases, the worms can “move considerable distances,” such as from the upper eyelid to the buttocks.
Even worse: The worm can live up to two years in the human body if it isn’t removed.
Luckily, it rarely causes disease in humans, according to Dr. Jorgen Kurtzhals, professor at University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen University Hospital, and president of the World Federation of Parasitologists.
Still, Kurtzhals acknowledged that just the thought of such a critter can get under some people’s skin.
“A lot of people have a fear of contracting worms of various kinds,” Kurtzhals told CNN. “I think it is important not to scare people. This is still a very rare condition ― despite the apparently rising numbers.”
‘Crooked’ NYPD cop busted for cocaine possession An NYPD officer suspected of a slew of crimes was busted for cocaine possession Monday after admitting to an informant, “I should know better — I’m a cop,” according to court papers. Disgraced Manhattan cop Johnny Diaz — a 23-year veteran of the force — was initially probed for allegedly offering to help crooks beat their raps in exchange for cash. Prosecutors said an undercover investigator was then assigned to track Diaz and posed as a drug dealer in his patrol area. Diaz, 48, arrested the informant May 23 and allegedly logged only $17,000 of the $18,000 in cash he recovered from the man, according to prosecutors. He then offered to return the dealer’s cell phone from an evidence locker and accepted a $250 bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue scotch as a thank-you gift for the favor, said ADA Emily Farber. The crooked cop then allegedly offered to tamper with the man’s pending case in order to get it tossed in exchange for $20,000. Diaz, a father of two, also later helped transport a kilo of cocaine from The Bronx to upper Manhattan for the informant June 15 in exchange for $4,000, authorities said. After moving the load, the two men partied at a lower Manhattan club, where Diaz made his damning admission, adding, “I could do life for this.”A glum-looking Diaz pleaded not guilty Monday to one count of first-degree possession of a controlled substance. Farber said more charges are anticipated and that Diaz committed other crimes during his corrupt career in law enforcement, including stealing cash from defendants and accepting bribes to throw their criminal cases. Defense lawyer Raymond Loving argued that Diaz had deep ties in the community and wasn’t a flight risk. But Justice James Burke ordered the veteran cop held without bail in protective custody. “As alleged in this case, this Officer was willing to traffic dangerous narcotics in the city he is sworn to protect for a few thousand dollars, and to steal evidence from his own precinct for a bottle of scotch,” said Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. in a statement. Diaz faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted.
The feds lost — yes, lost — 1,475 migrant children Corrections & Clarifications: An earlier version of this column mischaracterized the legal status of 1,475 undocumented migrant children who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border without their parents. Those children were placed in the custody of sponsors screened by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. They are no longer in federal custody. The Trump administration recently announced a new, get-tough policy that will separate parents from their children if the family is caught crossing the border illegally. It was a big news story. So big it overshadowed the fact that the federal government has lost — yes, lost — 1,475 migrant children. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told Congress that within 48 hours of being taken into custody the children are transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services, which finds places for them to stay. “They will be separated from their parent,” said Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. “Just like we do in the United States every day,” Nielsen replied.
Just like in the states, only ... not Except that the states, unlike the federal government, have systems in place to better screen the people who become guardians of the children and much better ways to keep track of those children. That is what happened to 1,475 minors swept up at the border and taken into custody by the federal government. The Office of Refugee Resettlement reported at the end of 2017 that of the 7,000-plus children placed with sponsored individuals, the agency did not know where 1,475 of them were. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said, “It’s just a system that has so many gaps, so many opportunities for these children to fall between the cracks, that we just don’t know what’s going on — how much trafficking or abuse or simply immigration law violations are occurring.”
VAGINA FLAVORED BEER! MADE FROM MODEL’S VAGINAL YEAST!
Would you drink this?
Although this sounds like a joke, rest assured it is not…in fact, this company is not the first company to try and market a food product that had the essence of vagina! However, we believe this is the first time we have ever come across anything that we were asked to eat or drink that includes the woman’s “juice” as an active ingredient in the product!
The name of the beer is The Order of Yoni. Wojtek Mann, the founder of the company explains that the word “yoni” means “vagina” in the Sanskrit language and the logo/artwork associated with the beer is also the symbol of a Hindu Goddess.
As you can imagine things only get weirder when you learn more about a vagina flavored beer. Check out the video and see if you want to sip from the fountain of Yoni!
Nipsey Hussle unleashed a vicious slap on a guy in the middle of an argument over where he could park his whip ... and it's all captured on video.
Check it out, the L.A. rapper's in the street outside the venue for Sunday night's 'BET Awards' when he gets into with another man. We're told the issue was whether or not Nipsey could move some cones and drive through a restricted area.
Tempers flare, and after the guy smacks a traffic cone out of the hand of Nipsey's bodyguard ... Hussle unloads a hard right slap.
A law officer immediately grabs Nipsey to keep the fight from escalating ... and then he gets back in his car.
Back in 2012 Jadakiss did an interview with VibeMagazine where he spoke about things like love, here's what he had to say:
"I’d probably say I fell in love a long time ago, but I really didn’t know it. By being in the industry, making money and thinking you’re that dude, men do a lot of moving around. Men move around more than ladies, if you know what I mean. But I’ll say the first time I knew I was in love was when somebody that I really felt feelings for was dealing with somebody else. Nobody really knew it, but that really hit me. In the hood, stuff gets exaggerated and dude came to me like, ‘Yo, such and such is messing with…” He made it look like it was extra crazy, and I was like, ‘Word?’"
Maybe the mystery woman he was talking about all those years ago was faith?!
, "Faith and Jada were definitely together. They sat together, hung out together, and left together. They were so cute."
Another entertainment insider, who is an ACTOR on the show Luke Cage, told MTO News, " I heard they were together, but I thought they were trying to keep it low key."
Well it looks like the two LEGENDARY artists are ready to make it official. CONGRATS TO THE TWO OF THEM!!
Florida Man Arrested For Attempting To “Barbecue” Child Molesters Porto-Sierra's plan to burn and kill sex offenders was thwarted when police arrived too soon. Jorge Porto-Sierra, who had a plan to “barbecue all the child molesters and kill them,” is now in jail. Police say that the 50-year-old Porto-Sierra was trying to kill sex offenders and set them on fire at the Friendly Village Inn & Motel in Kissimmee, Fla. An Osceola County detective said the man admitted his plan and he has now been charged with four counts of attempted premeditated murder. According to the police report, a man was standing outside his room when Porto-Sierra jumped out of his car and began screaming at the individual. Terrified, the man ran back into his room, prompting Porto-Sierra to break one motel’s windows and pour gasoline inside. The enraged Porto-Sierra also reportedly yelled, “You’re going to die child molester! I’m coming in!” Meanwhile, the man and his roomate escaped through the back window. In addition, Porto-Sierra allegedly attacked two other individuals inside a car in the hotel parking lot, first by pouring gasoline into the car through an open window. When the driver attempted to flee, Porto-Sierra got into his black Ford Focus and started ramming their car. Deputies then arrived on the scene, where they say Porto-Sierra surrendered right away. Waiving his Miranda rights, Porto-Sierra confessed and told the authorities, “they raped kids, they are child molesters that all live here and deserve to die.”Osceola County is known for being a sex offender haven, as it isn’t in the restricted range of schools, playgrounds, and churches, and there is a history of registered sex offenders living at the Friendly Village Inn & Motel. WESH 2 News reported that at least two of the four victims are convicted sex offenders. When the police asked why he didn’t follow through with the plan, Porto-Sierra responded, “because you got here too soon.”He is currently in custody at the Osceola County Jail without bond.
California Crops Rot as Immigration Crackdown Creates Farmworker Shortage Vegetable prices may be going up soon, as a shortage of migrant workers is resulting in lost crops in California. Farmers say they’re having trouble hiring enough people to work during harvest season, causing some crops to rot before they can be picked. Already, the situation has triggered losses of more than $13 million in two California counties alone, according to NBC News. The ongoing battle about U.S. immigration policies is blamed for the shortage. The vast majority of California’s farm workers are foreign born, with many coming from Mexico. However, the PEW Research Center reports more Mexicans are leaving the U.S. than coming here. To make the jobs more attractive, farmers are offering salaries above minimum wage, along with paid time off and 401(k) plans, but even that’s not proving enough. It’s unclear exactly how widespread the labor shortage is for farmers throughout the country, which would have a bigger impact on prices consumers pay. Ultimately, drought and flooding have a more significant impact on farms. Low oil prices could also offset any impact of the worker shortage.
A 14-year-old boy was stabbed during an altercation on Bronx River Parkway, police say.
News 12 cameras captured video of a heavy police presence Monday evening on the parkway near East Gun Hill Road. Officers swept the busy roadway amid the evening rush, looking for any suspects believed to be involved.
Police say the teenage boy was swimming in the river with a group of friends and got out during a fight. Investigators say they believe the victim was chased to the parkway, where he was stabbed repeatedly.
Police shut down the southbound lanes for some time during their investigation, causing a major traffic backup with cars stretching for miles in both directions.
News 12 is told that victim was in critical but stable condition at NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi.
Police have not yet made any arrests. They are looking for multiple suspects.
A witness cries out as one of two fatally shot men lies bleeding at a Bronx strip mall on Thursday.
Three people were killed in a barrage of gunfire near a strip mall in the Bronx on the first day of summer Thursday — and the victims apparently include an innocent bystander, police said.
The mayhem erupted on Castle Hill Avenue between Cincinnatus and Randall avenues nearby NYCHA’s Castle Hill Houses at about 9:45 a.m., sending fearful bystanders ducking for cover.
Victims Mustafa Tarver and Christopher AlleynFacebookThe gunman walked toward two of the victims, identified by sources as Mustafa Tarver, 33, and Christopher Alleyne, 33, “and began firing at them,” said NYPD Bronx Assistant Chief of Detectives Jason Wilcox.
The shooter, who remains at large, “fired several shots from in front of 620 Castle Hill Avenue,” Wilcox said.
Police on Thursday night released a grainy image of a person of interest — a man in shorts, a blue shirt or sweater and a black baseball cap.Tarver and Alleyne, who locals said were “best friends” and fathers who lived at the Castle Hill Houses, suffered gunshot wounds to the head. Law enforcement sources said Tarver was the gunman’s intended target.The third victim, identified by sources as Arileida Jimenez, 45, also of the Castle Hill Houses, was shot in the torso.
“It appears as if she might be an innocent bystander, but the investigation is very early in its stages,” said Wilcox, adding that it was not immediately known what led up to the morning shooting.
All three victims were rushed to Jacobi Medical Center, where they were pronounced dead.
A witness said he was sitting in his car waiting for his mother-in-law before sudden gunfire erupted on the street.
“I heard six or seven shots. I thought it was fireworks until I heard someone screaming. They were screaming, ‘Oh my God, no, no, no!,’” said the witness who would only identify himself as Mark, 52.
Multiple witnesses said they saw Jimenez sitting at a Healthfirst insurance table set up outside the Mannam Medical Center before the shooting. It was not immediately known whether she worked for either entity.
“She had nothing to do with [the shooting]. She just got shot — caught in the crossfire,” Mark said.
Mark said he saw one of the victims run down the street bleeding before collapsing in front of a parked Honda SUV.
“He was spitting up blood. Blood was pouring out of him,” Mark said. “He ran and fell where the blood is. He was pouring out blood on the sidewalk.”Mark, who knew the victim from the neighborhood, called him “the nicest guy. I never saw him bother anyone.”Christina Aguilera, 25, a waitress at the nearby Shore Haven Diner, said that one of the men, who was a regular at the diner, was gunned down moments after leaving the eatery after using the bathroom.
The scene of a shooting that killed three people in the Bronx on Thursday.Brigitte Stelzer“He came in, asked me to use the bathroom. After he was done, he walked out and got shot dead right in front of the diner,” said Aguilera, who noted that she had come out of the diner right behind the man to return a bracelet to another customer.
“He looked lifeless,” said Aguilera, who said she also works as an EMT. “He was laying on the ground. The artery in his neck was shooting blood out onto the ground.”
Aguilera, who just started working at the diner three weeks ago, said: “There was a lady who jumped on top of him screaming: ‘Why, why, why, no, no!’ It looked like it could be his mother.”
Following the shooting, the gunman, wearing dark clothes, fled on foot toward Randall Avenue and police were searching a building at the Castle Hill Houses for him.
Authorities say they have surveillance footage that “paints a picture of what occurred with the shooting” and they are actively looking for more.
Police were also looking into whether the shooting was gang-related, sources said.
The 2020 presidential election is Senator Bernie Sanders’ race to lose, according to a new survey of more than a dozen top Democratic strategists.
The survey, conducted by The Hill, reveals a Democratic field crowded with old faces. At a time when the party could use some fresh blood, most contenders for commander-in-chief have been around for decades. Sanders, who will be 79 years old in 2020, currently leads the pack.His people have never gone away,” Democratic strategist Brad Bannon told The Hill. “And he has a loyal core following out there that will be with him come hell or high water.” Sanders is the most popular politician in America, with an approval rating of 75 percent, according to a recent Harvard-Harris poll.Since losing the 2016 primary to Hillary Clinton, Sanders has toured the U.S. to promote his political group, Our Revolution, and his Medicare-for-all bill. His frequent travel has led many to speculate that he’s drumming up support for another presidential run. Advisers to the Vermont senator also have indicated that he’s eyeing the top job. When one of Sanders' associates was asked if his team was thinking about another run, the associate simply said, "Yes, is the answer."
Sanders considers himself a Democratic Socialist, and is registered as an Independent in the Senate but ran as a Democrat in the 2016 election. Bannon says that since 2016, Sanders far-left politics have been embraced by Democrats at large. “The Sanders wing is becoming the dominant wing of the party,” he said.

Sanders’ Medicare For All Act of 2017, which promotes a single-payer healthcare plan, is now supported by a third of Senate Democrats. When Sanders presented a version of the bill in 2013, he was unable to garner any support at all.
Other Democratic contenders for 2020 include former Vice President Joe Biden, Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Sherrod Brown and former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick.
But overall it's a weak field, said political strategist Phil Singer, who served as press secretary on Clinton's 2008 presidential run. “You have a bunch of Celine Dions but there’s no Beatles," he said.
