D.C. Police Officers shot and killed Marqueese “Queese” Alston, on Tuesday after he and a group of men ran away from three police officers in an alley in Southeast D.C. Queese was reportedly shot 18 times and was pronounced dead at the scene. Queese was 22 years old.

The shooting is causing outrage because D.C. residents believe Queese was treated unfairly. Queese has an illegal handgun and when he reached to throw the weapon police opened fire, excessively. News reports fail to mention to amount of times Queese was shot at.

A day after the shooting police chief, Peter Newsham, said that Queese had fired at officers resulting in the police shooting.

“He was armed, he was a felon, he was under supervision and he fired at police officers,” — D.C. Police Chief, Peter Newsham

People in the area during the shooting say that they don’t think they heard crossfire. 

Michael Brown, a D.C. native said: “From what I heard, out my window, it was no exchange of gunfire, It was just straight up brrrrrp.”

There was no crossfire,” another witness told News4.

Officers who responded activated their body cameras, and the footage is under review. Deputy Mayor Kevin Donahue said the footage likely won’t be released for 5 to 10 days. It must undergo review by prosecutors first.

Friends and family are calling for the review of any cameras in the area as well as the body cam footage.

Alston had previously been convicted of robbery and was wearing a GPS monitor at the time of the shooting

The fatal shooting is the second deadly police-involved shooting in the D.C. area in two days. On Monday evening, a man was shot and killed by a Montgomery County Police officer in Silver Spring, Maryland after a brief conversation. The police chief said “the man became combative and a physical altercation occurred.”

A federal judge has issued a new order hauling Trump advisor Roger Stone back to court for possibly violating a gag order by speaking about the case on Instagram.

Robert Mueller notified federal judge, Judge Amy Berman Jackson, that President Donald Trumps friend, Roger Stone, was in violation of the judge’s strict gag order due to an Instagram post.

Roger Stone is barred from criticizing Mueller’s team under a gag imposed on Feb. 21 after an Instagram image was posted of Amy Jackson’s face next to a rifle scope.

According to MSNBC correspondent, Ari Melber, it is now more likely that Stone will go to jail. The judge has already jailed another former Trump aide (Paul Manafort) for similar offenses.

In a new pilot program called, Shop Theft, Toronto Police will no longer criminally charge first time shoplifters.

The program intends to allow Shopping Mall Security Guards to apprehend possible suspects of shoplifting. The security guard would call Toronto Police giving them all of their information.

Offenders must be at least 18 years old or older, have identification on them, be accused of stealing less than $1,000 worth of items, and be considered non-violent to not be charged their first attempt. If it is their first attempt they get let off with a warning, the second attempt will most likely result in an arrest.

The program has a 90-day testing period until the results will prove if the program should expand to more districts. The six-month pilot will run in divisions 51 and 52.

This year, Toronto had 16,667 shoplifting incidents reported to Toronto police as of Oct. 30

About Study in Canada

• Study in Canada takes many different forms—study at junior high and high schools, colleges, universities, language schools or other places. It is said that over 10,000 Japanese people per year obtain study permits to study in Canada for over 6 months. That does not include the vast majority of people who study for less than 6 months.
