Woman Charged In Shocking Shooting That Was Live-Streamed By Victim On Facebook

The woman who allegedly pulled a trigger in a shocking Facebook Live video has turned herself in.  Labritney Austin, 29, of University Park, Chicago turned herself in on Wednesday, one day after she allegedly shot a 27-year-old woman in the arm.

According to the Associated Press, police announced on Friday that Austin is being charged with aggravated battery by discharging a firearm. It is unclear at this time if Austin has a lawyer who can speak on her behalf.

In that parking lot, she reportedly ran into an acquaintance, a woman who was sitting in a car. The woman appeared to be seated

Shocking Video Surfaces Of Man Shoving Woman Onto Subway Tracks

Security footage showing a man shoving a woman onto Hong Kong subway tracks and calmly walking away went viral over the weekend, the South China Morning Post reported.

Luckily, no trains were coming at the time of the apparent assault, and the 59-year-old woman, a subway worker, suffered only jaw injuries after tumbling on the tracks of the light railway station in Yuen Long.

The 56-year-old assailant was arrested outside the subway stop on “suspicion of assault occasioning actual bodily harm,” according to the Chinese newspaper.

“The woman suffered injuries to her jaw and was sent to Pok Oi Hospital for treatment,” a police spokeswoman said.

The identity of the man was not released, but he apparently has a Hong Kong identification card.

Assaults involving people getting pushed onto subway tracks are surprisingly common (and a city-dweller’s worst nightmare). In 2017 alone, we’ve written about a woman who was groped before being pushed

Shocking Video Captures 89-Year-Old Alzheimer’s Patient Being Beaten At Nursing Home

Shocking camera footage shows an elderly man who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease being beaten by a care worker at a Canadian nursing home. The family of 89-year-old Georges Karam installed the surveillance cameras in his room at Ottawa’s Gary J. Armstrong Long Term Care Home after noticing several unexplained injuries to their loved one. Police arrested personal care worker Jie Xiao in connection with the incident and charged him with assault.

“In the fall of 2016 and early 2017, my grandfather kept suffering from bruises, cuts and lesions — mostly to his face,” Karam’s grandson Daniel Nassrallah told CBC Radio-Canada. “Sometimes the home would have answers saying he fell out of bed, [but] my grandfather is immobile, so we didn’t necessarily believe [that].” With the approval of the Armstrong Home’s management and the knowledge of staff, the family installed the camera, which Nassrallah said was “extremely visible.”
