Chicago Man Killed Himself and a Woman After Fearing They Had Coronavirus, Police Say 

 

Police say a man in the Chicago area shot himself and a woman in his apartment after fearing both had the new coronavirus, The Chicago Tribune reports. Will County Sheriff’s deputies found the bodies of Patrick Jesernik, 54, and Cheryl Schriefer, 59, during a welfare check Saturday that had been requested by Jesernik’s family, who had not heard from him. Family members said Jesernik had been afraid that he was suffering from COVID-19 and that Schriefer had been having trouble breathing. Tests for COVID-19 came back negative for both after the apparent murder-suicide. The prohibition of any group larger than 10 people to slow the spread of the coronavirus has stymied recovery and domestic violence prevention efforts across the world.

Boy Dies 8 Years After His Mom, Pregnant with Him, Was Fatally Shot — and Killer Sits in Prison 

 

A Chicago 8-year-old whose mother was fatally shot in 2011 while months pregnant with him has died.

In August 2011, 17-year-old Charinez Jefferson was walking down a street in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood when 18-year-old Timothy Jones opened fire, WLOX, the Chicago Sun Times and CBS2 report.

According to prosecutors, Jones was attempting to shoot a rival gang member walking with Jefferson, who was six months pregnant. He shot the expecting mother in the head, back and chest as she begged him for her life.

Despite Jefferson not surviving the shooting, her baby did. Kahmani Mims-Jefferson was born prematurely and would eventually be adopted by a hospital nurse.

On March 8, Kahmani died of “complications of prematurity” and “multiple maternal gunshot wounds,” according to the Cook County Medical Examiner.

Baltimore mayor to residents: Please stop shooting each other — we need hospital beds for coronavirus patients 

 

In a news conference Wednesday, Baltimore Mayor Jack Young pleaded with residents to stop shooting each other so that the city's limited number of hospital beds could be used to treat those suffering from COVID-19.

His plea came alongside a declaration of emergency in Baltimore as the city reported its fifth confirmed coronavirus case and is experiencing evidence of a growing community spread.

"I want to reiterate how completely unacceptable the level of violence is that we have seen recently," Young said, according to WJZ-TV. "We will not stand for mass shootings and an increase in crime."

Baltimore has seen an uptick in violence since Friday, according to city Commissioner Michael Harrison. The violence included a mass shooting Tuesday night that resulted in seven victims needing to be transported to hospitals and are in serious but stable condition.

"For those of you who want to continue to shoot and kill people of this city, we're not going to tolerate it," Young said. "We're going to come after you and we're going to get you."

11-year-old girl brings loaded AR-15 to gun legislation hearing in Idaho 

 

An 11-year-old girl appeared Monday at a legislative hearing in Idaho, toting a loaded AR-15 assault weapon. Bailey Nielsen was with her grandfather, who is supporting a proposal that would allow visitors to Idaho who can legally possess firearms to carry a concealed handgun within city limits.

Charles Nielsen addressed the committee that voted to send the legislation to the full House as his granddaughter stood at his side with the weapon slung over her right shoulder. She did not speak.

"Bailey is carrying a loaded AR-15," Charles Nielsen told lawmakers. "People live in fear, terrified of that which they do not understand. She's been shooting since she was 5 years old. She got her first deer with this weapon at 9. She carries it responsibly. She knows how not to put her finger on the trigger. We live in fear in a society that is fed fear on a daily basis."

He said Bailey was an example of someone who could responsibly handle a gun, and lawmakers should extend that to non-residents.

Playing video games does not make you a mass shooter, expert says 
 

During a speech on Monday addressing the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, President Trump call for an end to — or substantial reduction of — the "glorification" of violence in "gruesome and grisly" video game culture. While some are quick to blame video games for real-life acts of violence, experts say there is no such link.

"When it comes to actual serious criminal violence, there's virtually no evidence that video games matter," James Ivory, professor and research director at Virginia Tech, told CBS News.

Ivory has researched the social and psychological dimensions of media, particularly the content and effects of video games. He says he's determined that a lot of things influence violent crime — but the media we consume is not one of them.

Teens are increasingly depressed, anxious, and suicidal. How can we help? 

 

Suicide rates lately have been increasing in all age groups in America, in almost every state. But the epidemic of youth suicide is particularly stymying, even for experts who study it.

There are plenty of hypotheses about what’s driving it floating around. They include the changing way teens interact with each other in digital spaces, economic stress and fallout from the 2008 recession, increasing social isolation, suicide contagion, and the fact that teens can more easily look up suicide methods online.

Two other enormous public health issues of our time are at play too. Children of opioid users appear to be more at risk for suicide. Same goes for young people who live in a house with a gun.

But the bottom line is that no one really knows why. That doesn’t mean more suicides can’t be prevented, however.

Man Apologizes Before Shooting Dog In Front Of Children 

 

The Dallas Police Department was looking for the man who shot a dog in the face in front of young children.

The Department said Friday that the unidentified man approached the children, aged between five and seven, near an apartment complex in Dallas on Feb.28. He apologized to the children before shooting the canine. He then took off on foot. The dog, a 9-month-old labrador retriever mix named Nolan, suffered a "major injury to his mouth."

Speaking to ABC-affiliated television station WFAA, Genola Vance, the dog’s owner, said the pooch followed her son and nephews who had stepped out to throw the trash. A few minutes later, the children came back home screaming "someone shot Nolan!"

The NRA denies the reality of gun violence. Doctors like me know it all too well. 

 

Last week, the Annals of Internal Medicine published a set of guidelines by the Health and Public Policy Committee of the American College of Physicians (ACP) addressing the problem of firearm-related injuries and death from a public health perspective.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) quickly rebuked the journal — and physicians in general — on Twitter, saying: “Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane.”

As a gun rights advocacy group, the NRA’s sharp critique was entirely expected. But the eruption from my physician colleagues on social media was startling. Responding to the NRA’s central point — that doctors should “stay in their lane” on the topic of guns — medical professionals created a viral hashtag, #ThisISMyLane (also #ThisISOurLane), sharing vivid stories of their clinical experiences with gunshot wound victims, arguing that, despite what the NRA might believe, the issue falls unavoidably into the laps of medical practitioners.

LAWMAKERS PROPOSE SOCIAL MEDIA HATE SPEECH CHECKS BEFORE GUN PURCHASES 

 

Lawmakers in New York have begun drafting legislation that would require potential gun owners to have the past three years of their social media reviewed before they were granted permission to own a firearm.

Eric Adams, the president of Brooklyn Borough, and state Senator Kevin Palmer are currently writing the proposed legislation, which would give law enforcement authorities the power to check up to three years of an individual’s social media accounts and internet search history before they are allowed to buy a gun, WCBS Newsradio 880 reported. One of the main aims is to identify any hate speech shared by the users, as the politicians noted that such offensive comments are generally only discovered after mass shootings occur.

“A three-year review of a social media profile would give an easy profile of a person who is not suitable to hold and possess a firearm,” Adams explained, according to the WCBS report.

There’s a new global ranking of gun deaths. Here’s where the U.S. stands 

 

In 2016, more than 250,000 people worldwide died as a result of firearms, and half of all of those deaths came from six nations, including the U.S.

The new numbers, from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s latest study of Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries and Risk Factors, offer several new ways to measure the impact of gun deaths worldwide.

Half of all gun-related deaths in 2016 occurred in six nations — Brazil, the United States, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia and Guatemala. Together, the study published in the journal JAMA noted, these countries hold less than 10 percent of the world’s population.

Montana had the highest suicide rate in the country. Then budget cuts hit. 

 

Mourners in this small town in northeast Montana, where a strip of appliance shops and bars are dwarfed by vast ranches, packed into a church this month to pray for Michael Lee.

A week earlier, Michael, a 13-year-old who dreamed of playing for the NFL, had killed himself in his family’s red clapboard home. At the funeral on Aug. 3, a row of Michael’s middle-school football teammates sat behind his relatives and friends, wearing maroon jerseys and white armbands with “R.I.P.” handwritten on them. A handful of strangers were there, too; the funeral announcement said anyone affected by suicide was welcome.

That seems to include just about everybody in the state these days.
