    Police position themselves behind a squad car with guns drawn.

    An investigation is underway to determine the motive behind an attack that left four injured before police claimed the life of a gunman who opened fire inside of an office building on the outskirts of Madison, Wisconsin, early Wednesday.

    Members of the FBI and the regional office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives assisted some 50 police squad cars that were dispatched to the scene of an active shooting reported in Middleton shortly before 10:30 a.m. Up to 34 commercial establishments populating the neighboring Greenway Station shopping center were affected by the lockdown that authorities ordered upon their arrival at the location of the 1800 block of Deming Way.

    Hurricane Florence

    Hurricane Florence has devastated large swathes of the southeastern coast, but the residents of Horry County are devastated today for another reason. According to the Daily Beast, two female mental-health patients were being transported to safety in a sheriff’s van when it was overtaken by the rising waters of Florence’s aftermath.

    “We want answers. Why did the Deputies drive through flooded waters? What happened to ‘Turn Around. Don’t Drown?'” said Jewels Green, the sister of Nicolette Green, 43, who is one of the women who drowned in the van. Green’s family issued a statement on Wednesday.

    Northern California wildfires are 100% contained

    The largest wildfire in Northern California’s history burned for 55 days across 459,123 acres (720 miles) before it was declared 100 percent contained, reported the Huffington Post.

    Dubbed the Mendocino Complex Fire, it consisted of two separate blazes called the River fire and Ranch fire, which started in July. The fires spanned four counties: Mendocino, Colusa, Lake, and Glenn.

    Their origins are unknown, but theories range from sparking fire lines to arson.

    Thousands of residents were evacuated, according to the Sacramento Bee.

    Firefighters from hundreds of miles away joined the efforts, driving their engines up for week-long shifts before returning home.

    A massive spiderweb has appeared over night in Aitoliko, Greece

    On a 1,000 foot stretch of shoreline in Aitoliko, Greece, spiders have created a nightmare-inducing web that blankets the area. So, for those that are terrified of spiders, you might want to hold off booking a vacation to Greece at the moment.

    According to Euro News, the massive spiderweb in Aitoliko has been caused by warmer conditions in western Greece. The web structure has been constructed by Tetragnatha spiders, which have been known to build extremely large nests during their mating season.

    Scientists believe that ideal climate conditions that include warmer-than-usual temperatures and sufficient humidity, as well as an abundance of food, has led to the spiders hunkering down in Aitoliko for the mating season.

    That’s right, not only is there a massive spiderweb, it contains a multitude of spiders ready to procreate and produce many more spiders.

    Franklin Graham

    Preacher Franklin Graham has weighed in on the allegation made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who professionally uses Dr. Christine Blasey, against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, by saying that it is “irrelevant,” and that “there wasn’t a crime that was committed,” during his CBN interview. Graham touched many nerves with the host of comments he made regarding the Blasey accusation, even among his base followers of evangelical Christians. Graham continued to pound away against Blasey, defending Kavanaugh to the point that, according to at least some viewers of the interview commenting on Twitter, it got ridiculous.

    Donald Trump jokes with Hurricane Florence survivor about a yacht.

    While Donald Trump was on a post-Hurricane Florence tour and visiting River Drive in New Bern, North Carolina, he kept his thoughts on important topics, with a beautiful yacht in particular catching his eye.

    According to the Washington Post, Trump was taking his time visiting survivors of the deadly hurricane when he immediately spied the yacht. This yacht had been tossed by the storm into one of the survivor’s backyards, which the president found more than a little amusing, and Donald Trump asked, “Is this your boat? Or did it become your boat?”

    The homeowner assured Trump that the yacht was not actually his and was a product of Hurricane Florence, yet was docked on his property now. The yacht, which is reported to be white with tan accents, caught the eye of the president yet again, who joked that the man had fared all the better because of the hurricane.

    “At least you got a nice boat out of the deal.”

    Woman says human trafficking is happening at Florida Publix stores

    Lynne Perry was unsettled after a recent trip to the Publix Grocery store, and like many, she posted about her experience on social media. WKRG reports that Perry is now walking back her claims that there were human trafficking rings operating out of several retail locations in Pinellas County, Florida.

    In her video, Perry mentions that she was followed around a Publix Grocery store on an August afternoon. The man was so aggressive in his following, she said, that she was eventually forced to confront him. Perry did not file a police report or report the man to story authorities at the time of the incident. WFLA reports that after that incident, she saw a similar thing occur to another woman while shopping at Earth Origins Market.

    Shaken by the coincidence, Perry decided to go live with a video on Facebook.

    Hospital ER

    Pauls Valley Regional Medical Center in Oklahoma has hit a point where operations are almost literally day-to-day, and there is no revenue in sight to help keep the doors open. According to NewsOK, Frank Avignone, the hospital’s CEO, has said that they need to come up with about $500,000 to remain open before the week closes. He went on to say that it is possible to maybe convince some of the staff to stay on a day or two beyond running dry, but there is no guarantee of that. Even if employees were willing to stay on a bit longer, there would still be problems finding cash to keep the rest of the hospital running.

    The Koreas are expected to make an Olympic bid.

    In a monumental announcement, North Korea and South Korea have expressed their interest in co-hosting the 2032 Summer Olympics. This information was delivered on the second day of a three-day summit between the two leaders, Kim Jong Un and President Moon Jae-in, according to Fox4 News. It’s another goodwill gesture between the two leaders, as they work together in tandem with the United States to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. Kim and Moon signed a 17-page agreement, which is to “cease all hostile acts against each other.” Moon stated the following.

    “The era of no war has started. Today the North and South decided to remove all threats that can cause war from the entire Korean peninsula.”

    The National Solar Observatory in Sunspot, New Mexico, was mysteriously shut down and evacuated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on September 6, with no explanation as to why.

    Now that the FBI’s records have been unsealed, it has been revealed that the shut down was over suspected child pornography inside the observatory, reported Reuters. A janitor working at the facility was suspected of “using the facility’s wireless internet service to send and receive child pornography,” the documents showed.

    Following the evacuation, a social media storm ensued, with all sorts of conspiracy theories running rampant. The rumors were only fueled by the site’s proximity to two U.S. military installations as well as the town of Roswell, where a suspected UFO was spotted in 1947.

    Cats

    Police investigating the vicious case of the “Croydon cat killer” have decided not to pursue any further lines of inquiry after revealing the identity of their prime suspect to the public, reports Metro News.

    The serial killer stalked the streets of South London and struck fear into the hearts of cat lovers everywhere.

    More than 500 deaths were laid at the door of this reported vicious brute who appeared to get their kicks by mutilating and killing cats.

    The Croydon cat killer first entered the public consciousness in 2015 when beloved pets who had been decapitated or dismembered began to appear on the streets of Croydon.

    Grieving owners were further heartbroken when reports appeared to suggest the cat deaths were the work of the same murderous hand.

    Cat lovers were beside themselves with grief and concern for their feline friends. In Croydon and further afield, pet owners were gripped by a mass panic as the bloody killer continued to stalk the streets and their nightmares.

    Trump answers questions at a press conference following his meeting with Kim Jung-un in Singapore.

    Wednesday, the Inquisitr reported that North Korea and South Korea conducted a meeting in Pyongyang regarding peace efforts and status of the alleged North Korean denuclearization. Shortly after the meeting, CNN reports that Trump offered his input on the results. Trump apparently said many good things about the meeting, claiming that peace negotiations were moving forward.

    “We had very good news from North Korea, South Korea. They met, and we had some great responses,” Trump said to the press.

    However, CNN claims, experts do not agree with Mr. Trump’s assessment. Trump also praised his “relationships” with the leaders of both North and South Korea, touting the “calmness” of the negotiations.

    “The relationships, I have to tell you, at least on a personal basis, they’re very good. It’s very much calmed down. We’re talking. It’s very calm. He’s calm. I’m calm. So we’ll see what happens.”

    was a bottle spotted on mars

    The Mars Curiosity rover has snapped a picture that a “UFO hunter” claims is a bottle, and thus, evidence of an ancient alien civilization on the red planet.

    As The Express reports, Scott C. Waring styles himself a “UFO hunter,” and he spends his days poring over every pixel of every photograph that comes from various satellites and other devices up in space. The saucy ones – that is, the ones that look like aliens or UFOs or things that shouldn’t be where they are – wind up on his website, Ufosightingsdaily.com.

    And this week, Waring posted a picture, snapped by the Mars Curiosity rover, that he claims shows an “antique bottle.”

    A police line with emergency services in the background

    Wendy Martinez was stabbed while out jogging on Tuesday night by a mysterious attacker in the Logan Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C., reported Fox News.

    With little energy following the seemingly random attack, Martinez was able to make her way into a takeout restaurant and alert those in the restaurant of what happened and where her attacker went. The customers tried to give her first aid to save her life. That first aid worked long enough to get her to a hospital, where she later died.

    Surveillance footage showed Martinez running into the restaurant and pointing out her attacker, which led to several customers running out of the store to try and identify the assailant. Police are saying that the attack seems to have been random and that she did not know the individual before the attack.

    Active Shooter Near Aberdeen, Maryland Wounds Multiple People, Situation 'Fluid' [Breaking]

    According to CBS Baltimore, police were notified at 9:09 a.m. of the shooting, which took place on Thursday at a Rite Aid support facility in Perryman, a small community located near the town of Aberdeen in Harford County and about 30 miles northeast of Baltimore. “Multiple victims” were reported to have been shot in the area of Spesutia Road and Perryman Road, as the Harford Sheriff’s Office advised in a tweet shortly after the incident. People are currently being advised to avoid the area, as the situation was described as “fluid” as of 9:51 a.m.

    Rite Aid spokeswoman Susan Henderson described the center as a secure location that has about 1,000 employees and serves as a location where “products are received and processed for delivery,” according to CNN.

    President Donald Trump speaks to reporters outside the White House.

    One of President Donald Trump’s lawyers is claiming that NBC News altered an interview with his client, shortly after he fired former FBI director James Comey, to make it appear as though the president said something he didn’t.

    Jay Sekulow explained that the president’s words were selectively edited when he gave an interview to NBC‘s Lester Holt in May of 2017, according to reporting from CNN.

    In that interview, Trump suggested he had the Russia investigation on his mind when he made the decision to fire Comey — a notion that could put him into legal hot water, possibly demonstrating the president attempted to sway or influence the investigation itself, reports ThinkProgress. Trump’s statement to Holt also contradicted the official reason his administration gave for Comey’s ouster, which was purportedly for mishandling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails during her time as secretary of state.

    A Texas father and son allegedly shot and killed a neighbor over a trash dispute, and video of the event, taken by the victim’s girlfriend, has been released to the media.
