A 9-year-old kid from Kokomo, Indiana was able to stop a man from stealing a pickup truck on Christmas Day. The suspect, Ollie L. Dunn, 32, allegedly had his eyes on a red 2009 Dodge Ram, parked at One Stop, a gas station. The 9-year-old boy inside that truck, Larry Larimore, wasn’t having it.
“I noticed that a guy was trying to get in the car. […] As soon as he opened the door, I got scared,” he told NBC affiliate station WTHR. Larimore was sitting inside the truck while his dad purchased Ibuprofen at the gas station.
Larimore pointed the gun at the suspect’s head, which prompted Dunn to go for a different vehicle. Dunn allegedly stole a green Chevy Trailblazer, parked nearby, instead.
Kevin Cooksey, Larimore’s dad, watched the whole drama unfold from inside the gas station.
“When I see my truck door open, I was like, ‘Oh my God.

There was quite a scene on a highway in Fairfax County, Virginia on Tuesday. According to The Washington Post, Jose Gonzalez Flores, 32, was involved in a car accident with two other vehicles. After he crashed his truck, Flores then assaulted another driver in the accident and threw some items onto the highway.
Then, despite the freezing temperatures outside, he stripped naked and ran into traffic, according to NBC Washington. Flores fled police by jumping up onto a passing vehicle, which he began stabbing repeatedly with a knife.
A video caught the entire dramatic moment. The clip also catches the bewilderment and the horror of onlookers.
Witness Tariq Hussein said the naked man also lay down in the road.

At least 10 people were found dead in a tractor-trailer parked outside a San Antonio, Texas Walmart on Sunday. Dozens of undocumented immigrants were in the truck, many of them badly injured. They were discovered after a man in the truck asked a Walmart employee for water. The worker called police after bringing the man water, according to CNN.
Police found eight bodies in the 18-wheeler. Thirty-one people were suffering from various injuries. Many suffered heat strokes and face potential brain damage. A ninth victim later died at a hospital. The air conditioner in the trailer was not working, Yahoo! reported, and on Saturday, it was a scorching 100 degrees in Texas. Two of the people hospitalized are just 15 years old, a fire spokesman said.
At least 100 undocumented immigrants may have been in the vehicle at some point, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting Director Thomas Homan stated.
