An armed suspect holed up in a south Sacramento residence was shot Monday night by a Sacramento police officer after a standoff, police said.
The standoff began shortly after 7 p.m. when officers were called to a residence in the 7600 block of Bellini Way in the Glen Elder neighborhood. Bail bond agents were attempting to serve a warrant on a suspect who fled to the bathroom with a handgun, police said in a news release.
A police sergeant and a K-9 Unit entered the residence to assist the bail agents and to negotiate the suspect’s surrender, police said.

ARI SHAPIRO, HOST:
There was a disturbing scene at a nursing home in Hollywood, Fla., today – elderly residents suffering in stifling heat. They were found by first responders answering an early morning emergency call. Hurricane Irma apparently left the facility without air conditioning. Eight people are confirmed dead. Others are being treated at nearby hospitals. Police say they are now conducting a criminal investigation into what happened.
NPR’s Jon Hamilton went to the nursing home earlier today and joins us now. John, what was the scene when you got there?
JON HAMILTON, BYLINE: Well, it was it was pretty grim. There were sirens, ambulances, fire trucks, a line of medical vans going by and this news helicopter flying overhead. And of course in front of the nursing home itself, the police had parked their crime scene investigation truck. We also saw

A Florida man has pleaded guilty on Tuesday for a 1993 murder, and police are crediting the Oxygen show “Cold Justice” for the closure on the cold case.
Angelo E. Ruth, 61, was sentenced to 11 years in prison for the death of Mattie Henry, 40, according to WINK News. Henry’s half-naked body was found in September 1993 near a recreational center. She suffered a gunshot wound to her head.
Fort Myers police said “Cold Justice” helped renew leads in the case. The forensic evidence and witness statements that the show brought out led to Ruth’s arrest in 2016.
Two years before Henry’s murder, Ruth took out a fraudulent life insurance policy on her, according to an ABC affiliate. Investigators with the show helped police confirm that Ruth forged Henry’s signature on the $100,000 life insurance policy, according to the Root. Then, publicity from the show allowed key witnesses to come forward, and

A crime scene investigation was set up at a property in a small village near Yeovil after it was broken into in broad daylight.
