‘My Stomach Dropped’: Harrowing Night for Twin Brothers of the Las Vegas Police

Branden Clarkson, meanwhile, was at the police department’s command post, helping direct officers and keeping track of who was where on a whiteboard.Finally, a lieutenant came up to him and said, “Hey, your brother is O.K.”“And I’m like, O.K., cool,” he said.But his brother was not exactly O.K. “Then she said: ‘He’s at Valley Hospital, you know, he got shot in the neck,’” Sergeant Clarkson recalled.“And my stomach dropped and I’m like, ‘Oh my god.’”On the whiteboard, under the names of the injured, he wrote his brother’s name.How a pair of 33-year-old twins wound up in the midst of one of the worst mass shootings in American history is a reflection of the incomprehensible scale of the tragedy. All hands were on deck, and since policing is a family business, it was not surprising that both brothers would be called into action.But the brothers’ roles could hardly have been more different. One brother carried out careful plans he helped devise. […]

A Burst of Gunfire, a Pause, Then Carnage in Las Vegas That Would Not Stop

VideoMass Shooting in Las VegasAt least 59 people were killed and hundreds injured when a gunman opened fire at a country music festival near the Mandalay Bay casino.By CAMILLA SCHICK, DAVE HORN and CHRIS CIRILLO on Publish Date October 2, 2017.Photo by David Becker/Getty Images.Watch in Times Video »embed LAS VEGAS — At first, it sounded like fireworks — a loud, crackling noise. Then the awful realization began to spread, unevenly, through the huge crowd.It dawned on people when they heard screams, when they saw bloodied victims collapse around them, or when others stampeded for the exits, trampling some of the people in their way.Many of the terrified concertgoers followed their instincts and crouched or lay flat, not realizing that they remained exposed to a gunman lodged high above them. Others surged into surrounding streets and buildings, leaving behind debris lost in the panic — drink cups, shoes, and cellphones that kept ringing for hours, as relatives and friends tried to reach their loved ones and find out if they were safe.By sunrise on Monday, the staggering toll at an outdoor country music festival on a cool desert night was becoming clear: at least 59 people killed, the police said, and 527 injured, either by gunfire or in the flight to safety.A lone gunman perched on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino had smashed the windows of his hotel suite with a hammer, taken aim at a crowd of 22,000 people, and committed one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history. Late on Monday, law enforcement officials said they still had no idea what the motive was.The gunman had 17 firearms, including a handgun, in his suite, according to Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. And when the police searched the shooter’s house on Monday, “we retrieved in excess of 18 additional firearms, some explosives, and several thousand rounds of ammo,” Sheriff Lombardo said […]

Clinging to Her Drowning ‘Mama,’ a Little Girl Survives the Raging Flood

PhotoThe van containing the six members of the Saldivar family who died is towed from Greens Bayou.Credit Mark Ralston/Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesRead the latest on the storm with Thursday’s live updates on Harvey.HOUSTON — Shivering from hypothermia, little Jordyn Grace was clutching her mother’s unresponsive body as the floodwaters rose around her. A rescue team in a Zodiac boat, on the lookout for those in distress in Beaumont, Tex., spotted the small pink backpack the girl was wearing and pulled her and her mother aboard.“Mama was saying her prayers,” the 3-year-old, recovering on Wednesday in a Beaumont hospital, told a relative, Antionette Logan, 38.“Jordyn told me they were in the yucky water for quite a while,” Ms. Logan said. “It’s a tragedy that her mama died, but it’s a miracle that Jordyn survived.”With the death toll from Hurricane Harvey climbing to 38, those who survived the storm are just now learning the names of those who did not and the terrible ways in which they died. Some episodes are particularly haunting, like the tale of Jordyn and her mother Colette Sulcer, 41, a nurse who died on Tuesday in the flooding in Beaumont, about 100 miles from waterlogged Houston, as her daughter clung to her body.Most of the victims identified so far also drowned: Agnes Stanley, 89, who was found floating in four feet of water inside her Houston home, where she lived alone; Alexander Sung, 64, a clockmaker in South Houston, who died in his beloved store after trying to rescue merchandise; Joshua Feuerstein, 33, who the police said drove around a barricade, a fatal mistake. Sgt. Steve Perez, 60, a veteran police officer in Houston, drove into a flooded underpass on his way to the station.Then there were the deaths of Manuel Saldivar, 84, and Belia Saldivar, 81, and their four great-grandchildren: Daisy, 6; Xavier, 8; Dominic, 14; and Devy, 16, who were found in a partly submerged van in Greens Bayou.The couple’s son, Sammy Saldivar, was driving the van and managed to escape through a window, watching helplessly as it disappeared under the water.

A Guide to Joe Arpaio, the Longtime Sheriff Who Escaped Strife

He would be re-elected five times.PhotoSheriff Arpaio speaking with members of what is believed to be the first chain gang of female inmates in 1996.Credit Jeff Topping/ReutersAn American lightning rodDuring Mr. Arpaio’s tenure, inmates were sometimes forced to stay in outdoor tents under the hot sun, wear pink underwear or work on chain gangs. (The sheriff is widely believed to have started the nation’s first female chain gang in 1996.) His deputies have been accused of racist abuse, needless intimidation and fatal mistreatment of prisoners.Mr. Arpaio seemed to revel in the spotlight as his tactics drew greater attention, and he often accused opponents of attacking him for political gain.He was a strident critic of President Barack Obama and a leading proponent of the theory that Mr. Obama was not born in the United States. In 2012, he sent a posse to Hawaii to check on the president’s birth certificate.The sheriff was an early supporter of Mr. Trump, giving his endorsement to the candidate in January 2016.PhotoSheriff Arpaio on a monitor at a 2012 news conference that raised questions about President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate.Credit Joshua Lott/ReutersWrong side of the law?Mr. Arpaio has been embroiled in legal troubles for at least a decade.

Fatal Knife Attack in Finland Is Investigated as Terrorism

Crista Granroth, an official with the National Bureau of Investigation, said that it seemed that the attacker had deliberately gone after women, and that the men had been wounded while trying to stop him.Prime Minister Juha Sipila said Finland had “feared something like this, but we have been prepared.”“We are no longer an island,” Mr. Sipila added.The assault in Turku, a city of more than 180,000, began in a main square when a man stabbed a woman, the authorities said. The assailant then ran to another square, where the police apprehended him and took the knife.Wali Hashi, a journalist who saw the episode, said in an interview that a group of people chased the knife-wielding man, who was screaming “God is great” in Arabic. The police declined to confirm whether the assailant had been yelling in Arabic.Paivi Koivisto, a teacher, said the wounded Italian woman had been pushing a baby in a stroller. “The most important thing was to keep the baby happy,” said Ms. Koivisto, one of several bystanders who tried to help after the attack. The child was unhurt.Leena Malkki, a counterterrorism expert and a lecturer at the University of Helsinki, said, “Finland has had attacks of indiscriminate violence, but none on this scale that also have political or religious motives.”PhotoThe site of the attack in Turku was cordoned off on Friday.Credit Roni Lehti/Lehtikuva, via ReutersFriday’s attack, Dr […]
