10 shot and one person killed at Detroit block party

Published

on

Ten people were shot, one of them fatally, at a block party in Detroit on Saturday, the Detroit Free Press reported on its web site.

Three of the victims were women who ranged from ages 26 to 45, the newspaper said, citing police, who did not yet know the motive.

No details were available on the person killed, but a 46-year-old man was in critical condition and two men, ages 21 and 26, were in serious condition.

Asst. Chief Steve Dolunt told the Free Press that no children were hit, although many were present when shots were fired on a basketball court where the party was taking place.

“I think one individual was the target. The others just happened to be at this party,” the paper quoted Dolunt as saying.

Police were continuing to investigate and trying to interview witnesses.

"I'm fine with Pelosi serving as interim president until we hold an election," tweeted activist Bree Newsom. "Both Trump and Pence are implicated in this conspiracy to extort Ukraine."

“Was there a ‘quid pro quo’?” Sondland said in his testimony to the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday. "The answer is ‘yes.’”

Sondland further claimed that “everyone was in the loop” and all actions were “directed” by the president.

Seth Meyers can’t stop laughing at Devin Nunes: ‘It’s like murdering someone and calling their ghost to testify’

Published

on

"Late Night" comedian Seth Meyers summed up the day of hearings by saying it was devastating to President Donald Trump. If you don't believe him, he showed the humiliating clip of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) who looked dejected.

"Wow, look at his face!" Meyers said. "He looks like he just walked in on his parents having sex -- with someone else's parents. There's only two explanations for that face, either he just heard lengthy testimony detailing a criminal scheme so shocking to bring down the presidency of Donald Trump. Or he sharted, and he's trying to remember how far away his back-up pants are."
