KTRK(HOUSTON) — A violent night of crime in Houston left one officer hospitalized, a suspect dead and three other people victims of separate robberies, including a priest who begged on his knees to be spared, police said.The officer, who was shot in his lower stomach Thursday night, is now in stable condition after undergoing surgery that lasted several hours, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said at a press conference Friday morning.The officer’s name has not yet been released, but police described him as a 29-year-old man who has been on the force for five years. His father is a 42-year veteran with the police department, Acevedo said.The suspect who was killed was shot by another officer who heard the shots fired and witnessed his fellow cop fall to the ground, according to Acevedo.The “acts of violence” began around 9:56 p.m. at a Valero gas station on Scott Street, according to police, when four suspects allegedly approached a man getting gas for his 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe and demanded he give them his vehicle at gunpoint.The man tried to explain that he was running on fumes and they wouldn’t make it far, police said, but the suspects still fled with the vehicle.Around 10:02, officers said they found the vehicle not far from the gas station and it appeared to have been abandoned because there was no gas.Police said after the suspects ditched the vehicle, around 10 p.m., they approached a priest in a nearby parking lot.“The priest has indicated that he was on his knees praying when one of the suspects pulled the trigger twice,” Acevedo said.The gun, however, did not discharge.Acevedo said the four suspects then beat the priest and stole his cellphone. When police were called to the scene, the priest gave the same description of the suspects as the first carjacking victim did.Shortly after that, the suspects allegedly approached a woman inside in her truck in her driveway and, at gunpoint, demanded she get out. The woman did so, and the suspects stole her vehicle, cell phone and purse, according to police.Officers were able to finally locate the suspects around at 10:21, prompting a chase.The officer who was shot chased one of the suspects for “quite the distance” before a struggle ensued and the shots were fired, according to police.Acevedo said he did not know the exact sequence of events, but it was possible that the officer was shot with his own gun. He described the night of crime as “chaotic.”last_img read more

Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: Willian Strike Cancels Out Salah Opener

first_imgLiverpool and Chelsea slipped further in the race for the English Premier League (EPL) title after both sides played out an entertaining 1-1 draw at Anfield in what was a Matchday 13 clash.Chelsea created the better chances in the first half but failed to convert any and they paid dearly for it twenty minutes after the interval in the form of their former player Mohammed Salah who scored for the hosts.In reaction to Liverpool’s goal, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte sent on Cesc Fabegras, Pedro and Willian and it was the Brazilian forward who rewarded his manager’s decision with a cross-shot to earn a valuable point for the champions.The draw takes Chelsea to 26 points (they remain in 3rd position) and within eight points of Manchester City while Liverpool also stay in 5th spot with 23 points.

Max Muncy’s challenge after breakout season with Dodgers – do it again

first_imgTaylor had a difficult time repeating that performance. His average dropped to .254 last season and his OPS to .775, each dragged down by a National League-leading 178 strikeouts.Muncy acknowledges the “Year Two challenge” will be considerable.“One of the biggest differences probably is, when I go up there in the batter’s box, teams aren’t going to be thinking, ‘Oh, here’s a guy – we know what he did in Oakland. He struggled,’ ” Muncy says. “Now it’s going to be, ‘OK, we can’t make a mistake against this guy.’ I do think that will be one of the biggest differences – that guys are going to be obviously a little more alert. Not saying I’m Miguel Cabrera out there. I think that will probably be one of the biggest challenges from Day One. It’s not going to be easy.“That’s probably the challenge everyone faces. You talk about Cody (Bellinger) and CT. When Cody comes up, it’s ‘OK, he’s a rookie. Let’s see if he can hit this pitch. Let’s see if he can handle this.’ He does, then the next year it becomes, ‘OK, let’s see if he can do this.’“Once they start getting information on you, that’s always the Year Two challenge. … There’s so much information now. They can tell on day games, on Tuesday, he does this. Don’t throw this pitch on a Tuesday day game. Or on a Wednesday, he hits this pitch. They have that information now – which is a little ridiculous. But they can break down every centimeter of your swing.”Muncy’s breakout season wasn’t all highlights. He fell into a 4-for-35 slump in late July and early August, striking out 20 times in that stretch. He also hit just .200 (10 for 50) in the postseason. His Game 3 home run was one of only two extra-base hits after the first round.Muncy expects teams will take their cues from those times.Related Articles “I would imagine teams are going to look back on what worked best on me last year and possibly try to repeat that,” Muncy says. “I will say one of the things that worked against me (in the postseason) – it seemed like guys were throwing me a lot of curveballs. But that’s a little different in the playoffs because the guys who were throwing the curveballs were all the guys from the Brewers who were throwing 100 (mph) with nasty breakers. Then you go to the World Series against the Red Sox and it’s Joe Kelly and Craig Kimbrel and they’re throwing 12-6ers with four feet of breaking at 90 mph. Not everyone has that.“I’m not exactly sure (what teams will do). Or maybe I’m just not telling you. Whatever adjustment they make, you have to make the adjustment.”Muncy has already made his first adjustment – pretending 2018 never happened.“I’m not looking back at last year,” he says. “I want to go out there and act like I’ve never done it. I want to play hard like I’ve never done it.“That’s one of the things I said coming into camp. I know that I’ve got a spot on the team. But I want to act like I don’t. I want to go out there and play hard every day and act like I’m making my first impression on the coaches and the front office. I feel like if I continue to do that, then that’s the best way for me to go out there and play.” Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error GLENDALE, Ariz. — Following a pretty good season at Triple-A in 2017, Max Muncy and his fiancee, Kellie, sat down to pick their wedding date.It was certain to be the highlight of 2018 for them. But they had no idea how many more there would be for Muncy before they walked down the aisle.There were the 20 home runs in his first 183 at-bats after his mid-April promotion to the Dodgers, a franchise record. There was the invitation to the All-Star Game to participate in the Home Run Derby. There were the team-leading 35 home runs, .582 slugging percentage, .973 OPS and 161 OPS-plus. And finally, there was the walk-off home run to end the 18-inning marathon Game 3 in the World Series against the Boston Red Sox, the longest game in postseason history.For a player who had struggled at the major-league level with the Oakland A’s in 2015 and 2016, it was one of the biggest breakout seasons in recent memory. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “I think the only way you could really top it would be to win the World Series,” Muncy says of his 2018 – including his Nov. 17 wedding to Kellie and their honeymoon in St. Lucia. “If we had won the World Series, I don’t think there would be any way you could top that good a year.”Muncy won’t be expected to top his 2018. It will be hard enough just to match it.“I think a lot of times people can be beholden to, like, the back of the baseball card numbers from last year,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman says. “For us, it’s about the process and we believe very good things will happen from a good process.“What I mean by that is he’s aggressive on pitches in the strike zone. He’s passive on balls outside of the strike zone. And he hits balls in the strike zone hard. Simply said, that’s a really good combination. We expect that to continue. Now – do as many go over the fence as opposed to split the outfielders and it’s a double? I don’t know. But we expect him to be a significant contributor again.”The Dodgers don’t have to look far to find an example of how it might work out. Chris Taylor had a milder version of the Muncy breakout in 2017, emerging from Triple-A to bat .288 with an .850 OPS and 21 home runs (nearly matching his total for six minor-league seasons).last_img read more
