Published: Thu, July 17, 2014 @ 12:00 a.m.

Stop the Violence


A Stop The Violence Rally will take place from 4 p.m. to dusk Sunday at 5665 South Ave.

Organized by city resident Patrick Hagerty, the rally is sponsored by All Caring Hospice.

There will be free food, police and fire vehicles and a raffle and auction. All proceeds will benefit Crimestoppers and Survivors Of Our Grace.

There also will be a candlelight vigil to remember those who have died because of violence.

2 fires ruled arson


City firefighters battled blazes at two vacant homes about the same time Wednesday morning.

Crews were called to a 338 E. Myrtle Ave. home on the South Side about 1:40 a.m. and found the home totally consumed by flames that melted the siding on a home across the street, reports said. A car parked across the street in a field also received minor damage, and power was knocked out to several homes on the block, reports said. Damage is listed at $6,680.

About 2 a.m., crews were called to a 1624 Hartzell Ave. home on the West Side, and that fire also was heavily involved when the first companies arrived. Damage there is listed at $14,400.

The cause of both fires is listed as arson. No one was injured in either blaze.

Trailer, gear stolen


Someone took a trailer with various lawn-mower equipment inside, totaling more than $10,000 in losses for a local business.

An 18-foot box trailer was discovered missing from Ohltown Road on Tuesday morning and reported to authorities at 8:16 a.m. Tuesday.

The trailer belonged to Impact Property Solutions and is valued at about $10,000. Various lawn- mower equipment was inside the trailer. The value of those items was unavailable Wednesday morning.

There are currently no suspects, and police believe someone connected a vehicle to the trailer and drove off sometime Monday night.

Robbery at store


A man with a gun entered the Fast Fuel store, 1514 Parkman Road NW, through the drive-through window at 1:40 a.m. Wednesday, firing three times at an employee, then stole the entire cash register.

The employee was not injured.

The employee said he was waiting on a customer at the drive-through window when the man, wearing a T-shirt, black shorts and stocking cap, came inside.

After taking the register, the suspect fled back out of the building through the drive-through window, the worker said.

Shots reported


An 18-year-old city man reported that another man fired three shots at his car as he was driving on Oak Street Southwest at 10:40 a.m. Tuesday.

The gunshots broke the rear and passenger windows, but the victim was not injured. The victim said he and the man who fired the shots have been arguing for about a month.

Police found broken glass on the street near the location where the victim said the shooting occurred, and his vehicle’s windows were shot out.
