first_imgBloomington IL Police Department(ROCKFORD, Ill.) — The suspect in the fatal shooting of a sheriff’s deputy Thursday at a hotel in Rockford, Illinois, has now been taken into custody after barricading himself in his car following a high-speed chase, Illinois State Police confirmed to ABC News.The suspect, identified as Floyd E. Brown, 39, lost control of his vehicle during the chase and careened off Interstate 55 between Bloomington and Springfield and crashed into a ravine, said Master Sgt. Sam Thomas of the Illinois State Police. He then barricaded himself in his car Thursday afternoon.The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office confirmed on Twitter that the deputy wounded in the shooting had died. Deputy Jacob Keltner was a member of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department and assigned to the U.S. Marshalls Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force, the sheriff’s office said.“We regret to inform you that shortly after 3:30 p.m. [Central time] today Deputy Jacob Keltner has passed away,” the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office tweeted.At an afternoon news conference, Trooper Sean Ramsey of the Illinois State Police said Brown had barricaded himself in his car and police had been trying to establish communication with him to convince him to surrender. He said Brown was still armed with at least one gun during the standoff.“We want it to end peacefully,” Ramsey said prior to Brown’s arrest. “You never want to end a life.”The shooting occurred at 9:15 a.m. local time as the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force from the Great Lakes Region was attempting to arrest Brown at an Extended Stay America hotel, officials said. He had several outstanding warrants, including two burglary warrants, a failure to appear warrant and a parole violation, Rockford Police Chief Dan O’Shea said in a press conference Thursday night.Lt. Kurt Whisenand of the Rockford Police Department said that as task force members approached Brown’s room on the third floor of the hotel, Brown allegedly opened fire. Ramsey added that Brown allegedly shot through the door, hitting the sheriff’s deputy outside in the hallway.Whisenand said Brown is believed to have fired a rifle at the task force members and then fled out a window, leaving a female acquaintance with a bullet wound in the hotel room.Whisenand said no members of the task force fired their weapons, and investigators believe Brown shot the woman in the hotel room.Authorities did not name the female acquaintance but said on Thursday night that she had been treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital and released. She was not in custody and there were no charges against her, O’Shea said.“It’s a dark day here and certainly his family is in our prayers,” Jack Franks, the McHenry County Board Chairman, told ABC News, referring to Deputy Keltner.Authorities initially said Brown was 45 years old, and that the deputy was a U.S. Marshal.Brown fled the hotel in a Mercury Grand Marquis.His car was spotted headed south on Interstate 55 and police chased him into Logan County, WLS-TV reported. The chase reached speeds of 100 miles per hour and the driver was pointing a gun outside his vehicle window at police pursuing him, ABC station WLS-TV in Chicago reported.Thomas said the car went off the road and into a ravine. It was not immediately clear if Brown was injured.Winnebago County State’s Attorney Marilyn Hite-Ross said on Thursday night that upon learning of Keltner’s death, Brown’s charges had been upgraded to first-degree murder with a mandatory penalty of life in prison. Brown is currently waiting to be transported to Winnebago County.“Jake was a fine young man,” said McHenry County Sheriff Bill Prim Thursday night. “We’re truly going to miss him.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgIn the first of what is hoped will be a series of spectacular space missions in 2004, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory flew the Stardust spacecraft today on a wild ride right into the dusty coma of comet Wild-2 (pronounced Vilt-2).  Though the dust storm would have killed an astronaut at that range, the craft emerged on the other side unscathed, with possibly millions of dust particles embedded in its aerogel collector.  The first sample return mission since Apollo 17 in 1972, Stardust will parachute its capsule loaded with the precious cargo into the Utah desert in January, 2006.  During the encounter today, the mass spectrometer also worked well, and so did the camera.  About six dozen images were snapped of the comet’s nucleus from about 250 km (150 mi).    Elated by their picture-perfect enounter, the spacecraft team proudly displayed two detailed images of the nucleus at the press conference this afternoon, just 3 hours from the time they were taken.  They expect additional images still being processed may be even better.  The photos reveal a rough surface mottled by pits, with about five jets visible.  The pits, rather than being impact craters, may be sinkholes from collapse of underlying volatiles.  If this comet is like Halley and Borrelly visited earlier by Giotto and Deep Space 1, respectively, the surface is probably as black as asphalt, but data will have to be analyzed to nail down the actual reflectivity.  Principal investigator Donald Brownlee (Univ. of Washington) said that the jetting of volatiles and dust only comes from a few percent of the surface.    Project Manager Tom Duxbury explained that the spacecraft was named Stardust because comet dust is assumed to be pristine material from our star, the Sun, left over from its formation (although this assumption has been questioned recently: see 08/12/2003 entry).  Brownlee, co-author of Rare Earth (12/19/2000), a book that asserts intelligent life is rare in the universe, stressed that photographs and actual physical samples that can be examined in the lab are worth much more than mere ideas.  These first images were surprising, and more surprises are anticipated once the samples are returned to Earth.  Nevertheless, he reiterated the evolutionary theme Carl Sagan made famous, that humans, like comets, are also made of star dust.    Upcoming comet rendezvous missions include the European Space Agency Rosetta, launching (after previous delays) in February (01/13/2003), and NASA’s Deep Impact, launching in December.As expressed in similar headlines in the past, we congratulate those who succeed in risky missions to gather data, and we can hardly wait to see what the particles in the collector show, but the public should be “taught the controversy” when there is one.  If not all scientists agree that comets are made of pristine material, that should be mentioned, rather than making matter-of-fact statements to the press that comet material has been unprocessed for 4.6 billion years.    The phrase “we are made of starstuff” is a misleading half-truth.  Yes, our bodies have carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and other elements found in stars, but we know what Sagan and Brownlee mean.  They want us to believe that stardust aggregated into the Earth, and from the atoms on Earth, life arose and evolved upward into human beings by unguided, purposeless, undirected natural processes.  Such myths should be distinguished from science.  They would not get smiling nods at press conferences if scientists were expected to use disclaimers when preaching naturalistic philosophy: “According to my atheistic, naturalistic opinion, and according to the teachings of my tradition’s creation myth, we are all made of stardust.  Won’t you please join me in singing my favorite hymn, Godless Philosophy.” (Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
