Deputy saves pair from rattlesnake

 MAURY COUNTY, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Maury County Sheriff’s Department deputy tried to help two people who had no clue a rattle snake was so close.

Dash cam video shows Deputy Adam Sisk pulling up to a gravel lot, where two people are laying. A snake can be faintly seen nearby.

Sisk gets out of the vehicle and warns the pair, saying “Don’t move! There’s a rattlesnake right next to you.”

The man quickly gets up and runs away, and the woman slowly follows.

District attorney Brent Cooper took to social media saying, “Drugs are bad… Rattlesnakes are dangerous. A Rattlesnake will sober you up quickly!! Great job Deputy Adam Sisk.”

Deputy Sisk says drugs weren’t found on the two people and he had no reason to believe they were on drugs. No arrests were made in the incident.

Woman accused of lighting 5-year-old stepdaughter’s face on fire as punishment

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas – A Texas woman is accused of pouring alcohol on her 5-year-old stepdaughter’s face, then setting it on fire.

Dalia Jimenez, 20, of Grand Prairie, faces a charge of felony injury to a child.

Jimenez initially told officers responding May 13 to reports of a child with burns that the girl was hurt while trying to light a candle, according to KTVT.

After investigators questioned her about several inconsistencies, Jimenez allegedly admitted to dousing the girl in rubbing alcohol and using a lighter to set fire to her face.

Jimenez told police she did it because the 5-year-old had been “yelling previously in the home,” KTVT reports.

The girl suffered burns on her cheeks down to her jawline, with smaller burns on her shoulders.

Grand Prairie Detective Greg Parker said during a press conference that Jimenez is believed to have left the girl’s injuries untreated for two days.

Child Protective Services has removed the victim and her younger sibling from the home. KDFW reports that the father was not home when the incident happened and is not expected to be charged.

Police hope high-tech ‘shot spotter’ could combat gun violence

PETERSBURG, Va. — Speed and time are both key factors in solving crime, but if no one calls 911 or police receive a vague call about location, speed and time are lost.

Petersburg Police are now one of a growing number of agencies looking at advanced technology to pinpoint gun shots.

“We can save lives and also get evidence faster,” Petersburg Police Capt. Greg Geist said.

Petersburg Police recently saw a demonstration by Shot Spotter Technology, which with that technology it could instantly tell patrol officers.

“The exact address location down to where the shooter was standing,” Geist said.

The new technology will be in use by the end of summer in Newport News.

“I just think this technology is going to be a game changer in some of the ways we respond and investigate crimes,” Newport News Police Chief Steve Drew said.

Shot Spotter works using sound, which is then triangulated to determine the exact location.

Bypassing dispatch and a call to 911, the location is instantly sent to patrol officers so they can respond.

Last year in St. Louis, Shot Spotter captured the fatal shots and helped police arrest two suspects in a murder.

“This was an instance in which no one called 911, so we did get that shot spotter alert and that was the officers responding, who located the victim and that really helps us start that investigation clock immediately” St. Louis Metropolitan Police Lt. Brent Feig said.

Petersburg Police are looking for grants to help them finance the technology.
