4 charged in Chicago shooting held without bail

CHICAGO (AP) - A judge denied bail for four men charged in connection with a shooting at a Chicago park that injured a 3-year-old boy and 12 others.

All four appeared before a Cook County judge Tuesday wearing street clothes.

Authorities say last Thursday's attack on the city's southwest side was gang related and in retaliation for another shooting that occurred earlier in the day, injuring one of the defendants.

Tabari Young, Bryon Champ, Brad Jett and Kewane Gatewood are all charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery. Prosecutors say the four are members of the Blackstone street gang. The park where they opened fire was inside territory frequented by members of the Gangster Disciples.

Investigators say Young and Champ were alleged gunmen.

Police say they don't believe they were targeting specific people

WASHINGTON (AP) — Within hours of the Navy Yard shootings, the FBI was tracing the gunman's recent purchase of a shotgun, sending agents to the shop in northern Virginia where he bought it — and leaving the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives out of the loop.

The surprising snub between top U.S. law enforcement agencies comes as the ATF struggles to show its relevance in Washington.

The ATF is the federal agency in charge of tracing traces guns used in crimes, including the military-style semi-automatic rifle used in a rampage at a Connecticut school last year, a similar rifle used in the deadly shooting at a Colorado movie theater and a handgun used to kill six people and critically wound a congresswoman, among others, outside a grocery store in Tucson, Ariz.

CHILICOTHE, Mo. (AP) — A 60-year-old woman has been arrested in the almost 13-year-old abduction of a child in Florida.

The Kansas City Star reports that Sandy Hatte is being held on $25,000 bond in the Daviess/DeKalb County Regional Jail in Pattonsburg. She was arraigned Friday on a charge of felony child abduction. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.

Authorities took custody of the child Wednesday after a school official raised concerns. The biological father traveled to Chillicothe this week to be reunited with his child.

A Livingston County's sheriff's office news release described Hatte as being "somehow related to the family" of the child. Hatte and the child had only lived in Livingston County for about a month.

Man charged in bank robbery, trooper shooting

WARRENTON, Mo. (AP) — An eastern Missouri man has been charged with robbing a bank and shooting a trooper while fleeing.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 64-year-old Warren Gladders of Wentzville was charged Saturday in Warren County with first-degree assault against a law enforcement officer, armed criminal action, robbery in the first degree and possession of an illegal firearm.

Bail has been set at $500,000. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Gladders is accused of robbing the First Bank of Dutzow on Friday morning. Afterward, a witness provided a description of the getaway car. When Gladders was stopped, a shootout ensued near the St. Charles County town of New Mell.

Gladders was shot in both legs, and a bullet lodged in the bullet-proof vest of a trooper.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Representatives from more than two dozen law enforcement agencies from Missouri and Illinois will gather in St. Louis next week for a workshop on cyberbullying.

The organization Child Safety Day is hosting the workshop on Wednesday. It will be led by Tina Meier, whose 13-year-old daughter, Megan, committed suicide in 2006 after being the victim of cyberbullying.

Organizers say the workshop will include police officers conducting a mock re-investigation of the Megan Meier case using current state laws instituted after Megan's death.

Organizers of the workshop say bullying on the Internet can play a role not only in suicides but in school shootings and other tragedies.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a trooper was saved by his bulletproof vest during a shootout.

The incident started after a suspect walked into a First Bank in Marthasville. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money and sped away from the scene. A State Trooper was in the area and chased the suspect onto a nearby highway. The suspect stopped his vehicle and started shooting at the officer. He was hit in the chest, but was able to shoot back and hit the suspect in the leg.

The trooper was taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay.

The suspect is receiving treatment at St. John's Mercy Medical Center.

Justin DeRyke enters not guilty plea

Justin DeRyke was in court Thursday to enter a not guilty plea for the murder of his young niece.

With the plea, DeRyke moved the case closer to a trial. Police say DeRyke admitted to stabbing 7-year-old Willow Long to death, but he claims it was to "put her out of her misery". He claims that the girl fell into a pile of brush and a stick stabbed her in the neck. An autopsy result turned up evidence that prosecutors say contradict his story. The judge set the trial for December 2.

If convicted, DeRyke faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

   St. Charles police believe the man accused of drugging and raping a 13 year old girl and taking nude cell phone pictures of her, probably had more victims.  

   Forty-seven year old Thomas Wilburn is charged with statutory sodomy, statutory rape and enticement of a child under age 14.  

   St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lohmar says Wilburn lured the girl to his apartment in May through a singles' telephone chat service that's supposed to be for adults only.   Lohmar calls that disturbing.  "It is very concerning that somebody who's underage could find their way,  not only into the chat room, but to be able to participate in the chat room," Lohmar said.

   Lohmar says this girl probably wasn't the only victim Wilburn met through the chat service.  "We have reason to believe that there are other victims out there, for sure," he said.

   Police say Wilburn was identified through court ordered phone records.  

   Wilburn is a registered sex offender with statutory rape convictions in 2007.  He's currently jailed on $100,000 bond.

   Anyone with information about this case, or additional victims is urged to call the St. Charles Police Department at (636) 949-3300.
