Teens caught after shootout • Casino robberies lead to suspect • Joan Jett, more headlining Arts, Beats & Eats

A surveillance camera in Detroit captured a wild shootout in the middle of the day.

Police believe there was an exchange of words between three teens walking and people in a car on Manor near Puritan on Saturday before someone in the vehicle started shooting.

The teens returned fire, with nearly 40 bullets fired in total.

"Two of the individuals are captured on video shooting weapons, and the third is seen as more of a lookout," said Detroit Police Capt. Philip Rodriguez.

Those three teens were caught at a nearby home, but police are still searching for the people who were in the car.

"That display to myself watching that video is carelessness for the community itself," Rodriguez said.

Genesee County man arrested after Detroit casino robberies

A suspect arrested after a man was robbed in the parking garage of Motor City Casino matches the description of a similar crime in Greektown.

The victim at Motor City was about to head home early Monday when someone stole thousands of dollars from him in the parking garage. About 24 hours earlier Detroit police took a similar report of a robbery in the parking garage area in Greektown.

Surveillance cameras are everywhere by the casinos, and they helped police catch the Mt. Morris man, in conjunction with officers in that city. 

"They have made an arrest on an unrelated manner, so we are working in conjunction with them as we work up our search warrants and things of that nature," said Detroit Police Cmdr Melissa Gardner.

Bryan Kohberger might claim 'alibi' in Idaho murders case

Idaho murders suspect Bryan Kohberger "might rely on an alibi" during his upcoming trial, according to a recent court filing and criminal defense attorney John Henry Browne, who represented serial killer Ted Bundy.

FOX News reports that Kohberger, 29, who is "standing silent" in the case accusing him of fatally stabbing four University of Idaho students in Nov. 2022, reiterated his right to silence in a Monday filing responding to the state's demand to present an alibi.

The suspect's defense team said it "continues investigating and preparing his case." His lawyers also said they have "[e]vidence corroborating" the suspect being at a location other than the crime scene at 1122 King Road in Moscow — an off-campus house where three of the four victims lived — when the murders occurred on Nov. 13, 2022.
