Firetruck theft deadly

A naked man stole a firetruck at an apartment complex and sped away, killing a pedestrian who was walking on a sidewalk, authorities said Saturday. The thief drove about two miles Friday before he hit a man, careened off the road and crashed into some trees, authorities said. The driver, who was pinned inside the firetruck, was freed by rescue workers, and then started assaulting two police officers, police said. Justin Miller, 28, was killed when he was hit as he walked with his brother. The driver was identified as Kalvin Hunt, 26.

Passers-by ignore victim

A World War II veteran said nobody helped him in the minutes after he was attacked and carjacked in daylight at a busy gas station and he had to crawl across a concrete parking lot to get help. A roughly four-minute surveillance video shows Aaron Brantley, 86, struggling to get from the fuel pump to the gas station’s door as people walked and drove by him Wednesday morning. The video was first obtained by the Detroit Free Press. Brantley said several people passed by him as he crawled, unable to walk because his leg was broken in the attack. The carjacker knocked Brantley down, took his keys and drove off in his car about 10:40 a.m.

Probation sought for boy

A Washington state prosecutor said his office will seek probation and treatment for a 9-year-old boy who took to school a gun that accidentally discharged and critically injured a classmate last week. Kitsap County Prosecutor Russ Haugen said Friday that “nobody is trying to lock this little boy up.” He said prosecutors hope to hold the boy accountable not through incarceration, but rather probation, treatment and other services. The third-grader faces charges of unlawful possession of a gun, bringing a dangerous weapon to school and third-degree assault. He is facing a capacity hearing where a judge will determine whether he knew what he did was wrong. If the judge decides the boy knew, the charges go forward.
