Police in York, Pennsylvania arrested a man over the weekend who was accused of shooting a boy for throwing snowballs.

According to charging documents obtained by WPMT, York police responded to reports of multiple shots fired at around 2:03 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.

A witness told police that he had seen a group of juveniles running in the neighborhood, and at least one of them was carrying a snowball. The witness recalled hearing around six gunshots. Then, he allegedly saw 22-year-old Jerquan Dickson come out of a nearby alley, and speed off in a maroon sedan.

When police caught up with Dickson, he told them that he did own a gun, but it was not at the current address. The charging documents said that Dickson told police that kids had thrown snowballs at his car. After following the kids to Forry Avenue, Dickson reportedly said that he fired once into the air, and then “several times” into the snow.

WPMT reported that a 15-year-old boy was recovering from “several” non-life threatening gunshot wounds at York Hospital.

Police obtained a search warrant, and recovered a 9 mm Smith and Wesson hidden in a laundry basket at a home connected to Dickson. Six 9 mm shell casings were also recovered from the scene of the crime.

Dickson was charged with two counts of felony Aggravated Assault and Recklessly Endangering Another Person.

Trump says militia that sought to kidnap and kill Michigan’s Gov. Whitmer was ‘maybe a problem, maybe it wasn’t’

In a startling moment during his Michigan rally Tuesday, President Donald Trump implied that the militia that attempted to kidnap and kill Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) was maybe or maybe not all that big of a problem.

“People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn’t," Trump told his rally.

It's a commonly used tactic by Trump to say things like "people say" or "some say" or raise hypotheticals so that it gives him the ability to say "I don't think that, people do." But he has never been able to cite the actual person that said that to him.

In this case, one would assume all political leaders would oppose kidnapping and killing a political leader regardless of the party to which he or she belongs. In Ohio they've opted for a gentler approach, merely trying to recall Republican Gov. Mike DeWine for his mask mandate.

Trump’s closing argument to women: ‘We’re getting your husbands back to work’

Published

One week before the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump made his closing argument to women at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan.

"I love women and I can't help it, they're the greatest," Trump said, four years after the Access Hollywood tape was released which showed him bragging about sexually assaulting strangers.

"I love them much more than the men," he added.

Trump also made an economic argument that sounded as dated as his talk about "suburban housewives."

"We're getting your husbands -- they want to get back to work, right? We're getting your husbands back to work," he argued.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday again complained about the amount of media coverage being given to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump made the remarks at a campaign event in Lansing, Michigan, where he reminded supporters that he had been infected by the virus.

"I would like to give me full credit," the president said of his recovery. "I don't want to give the drug any credit. I want to say, because I am a very young person that's in perfect physical shape, I took that virus and I woke up the next morning and I felt like Superman."

Trump then motioned to members of the media at the event.
