Columbus, IN—Early Saturday morning CPD officers were dispatched to a residence on Home Avenue in regards to a report of shots fired. When officers arrived, they located a man with multiple gunshot wounds inside a home. The homeowner, John Noonan,55, of Columbus, reported to law enforcement officers that he was confronted by an unknown person with a baseball bat inside his home. Noonan reportedly discharged a firearm a short time later, striking the man, who was later identified as Derek Henderson, 38. Henderson was transported to Columbus Regional Hospital by paramedics, where he was pronounced deceased. The Bartholomew County Death Investigation Team is continuing the investigation but has determined that Noonan and Henderson did not know each other. However, law enforcement responded to Henderson’s residence at 1803 Home Avenue on three occasions on January 3rd. On January 3rd, 2020 at 11:08 a.m., CPD officers responded to Henderson’s residence after they received a request from the Department of Veteran Affairs to assist with transporting him to the hospital. Officers were unable to make contact with Henderson at that time. Several hours later, at 2:15 p.m., CPD officers returned to Henderson’s residence after receiving a phone call that Henderson was now there. Officers made contact with Henderson and he refused any assistance. In the evening at 6:21 p.m., the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department initiated a call at Henderson’s residence. CPD officers responded to assist the sheriff deputies and left the scene when it was determined that they were no longer needed.
Department of Public Safety and LAPD officials arrested a suspect in connection with three recent armed robberies Wednesday near the 1200 block of 29th Street, DPS said.The suspect, Anthony Paul Hood, was spotted by the DPS Special Problems Unit, which was patrolling the area because there was suspicion a drug deal was taking place. Because Hood matched the suspect description provided by the victims of the three robberies, the officers of the Special Problems Unit and LAPD officers assigned to the USC area detained him, and a subsequent investigation led to his arrest at approximately 7:30 p.m.“Our Special Problems Unit was patrolling in the North University Park Area and they observed a suspect matching the description of a suspect in three robberies get in a vehicle near a house where we suspect drug dealing was going on,” DPS Capt. David Carlisle said. “DPS officers detained that suspect along with the LAPD unit that is assigned to USC.”During the follow-up investigation, the laptop of a student who was robbed June 7 near the 1200 block of 27th Street was recovered. Later, the student positively identified Hood as the man who robbed him, Carlisle said. Officers also recovered a BB gun.In addition to the June 7 robbery, Carlisle said officials also believe Hood was responsible for robberies on June 2 and 3. The June 2 robbery took place at the 2700 block of Ellendale, while the June 3 robbery occurred at 1120 W. 27th St. In all three instances a weapon was displayed.According to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Inmate Locator, Hood was booked at the LAPD Southwest Station early Thursday morning, and is being held on $100,000 bail.

“Definitely not,” Muncy said if he expected to be in this position. “Maybe Buehler. But I didn’t figure I’d be standing here. The whole experience has been incredible.”And wholly unpredictable.When the Dodgers reported to Camelback Ranch for the opening of spring training in February, the narrative surrounding the defending National League champions was how little they had changed during the offseason – no big free-agent signings, only one trade that wasn’t a salary dump. The two-year deal given to clubhouse leader emeritus Chase Utley was the only multi-year deal negotiated by the Dodgers’ front office last winter.Then Matt Kemp played like an All-Star. Max Muncy started hitting home runs and never really stopped. Manny Machado was acquired in the boldest trade-deadline move this season. And Buehler grew into his potential faster than the Dodgers could have hoped.“One thing I learned years ago is not to act like you know how a season is going to unfold,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said after Monday’s 5-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies. “It’s about having as many good options as you can have and then sitting back and watching how things materialize. This year is a great example of that.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is familiar with the value of unexpected contributions.“Max has been unbelievable,” he said. “Every year it takes a couple guys you didn’t really count on to have big years and Max is that guy. Last year it was Chris Taylor. To envision 35 home runs from a guy that was a non-roster invitation, I didn’t foresee it. He just wanted an opportunity and, fortunately for us, we gave it to him and he came through.” LOS ANGELES — Do you remember Opening Day of the Pacific Coast League season? Max Muncy does.“Yeah, it was about 10 degrees in Iowa,” Muncy recalled, exaggerating slightly.Also notable, Muncy hit a home run and right-hander Walker Buehler pitched for the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers.Nearly six months later, Buehler was pitching again and Muncy hit another home run – his team-leading 35th for the Dodgers – only now it was in the 163rd game of the big-league season. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies PITCHING PLANSMonday’s win saved the Dodgers from facing quite a dilemma. They would have had to choose between right-hander Ross Stripling, who has struggled since returning from the DL, and a bullpen game (perhaps featuring Alex Wood as an ‘opener’) to start a do-or-die wild-card game on Tuesday.“The pitching is set up,” Roberts said after Monday’s win. “That’s all we talked about. It wasn’t an elimination game (against the Rockies), but for us to kind of prepare for the Division Series we felt it was a must-win.”The Dodgers will now be able to send Clayton Kershaw to the mound for Game 1 on regular rest Thursday with Hyun-Jin Ryu lined up for Game 2 on extra rest. In nine starts at Dodger Stadium this year, Ryu has a 1.15 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP, holding batters to a .212 average. He hasn’t allowed a run at Dodger Stadium in his past 14 innings.“That’s probably the way it looks, yeah,” Roberts said of the rotation.Buehler would line up to pitch Game 3 in Atlanta on Sunday on five days’ rest with veteran left-hander Rich Hill in Game 4.FAN FAVORITESThanks to the 82nd home date on Monday, the Dodgers were able to set a new franchise record for attendance this season. The one-game playoff with the Rockies drew 47,816, pushing the season total to 3,857,500 – a few hundred more than the previous record set in 2007 and the sixth-largest season total in National League history.“It has been remarkable since the day we got here,” Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten said. “They have been supportive for 60 years. To think this year was the greatest attendance they’ve ever had is really extraordinary. And that really enables us to do everything that we do.”Tickets did not go on sale until about 22 hours before Monday’s first pitch and there were large swaths of empty seats when the game started as fans fought through traffic to get to the stadium for the afternoon start.“You drive in L.A., it’s going to take you a while – but it’s worth it when you get here,” Kasten said. “That’s what I’ve learned about living in L.A. – it takes a long time to get there but when you do, it’s really worth it.”UP NEXTBraves (RHP Mike Foltynewicz, 13-10, 2.85 ERA) at Dodgers (LHP Clayton Kershaw, 9-5, 2.73 ERA), Thursday, TBD, Fox Sports 1Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season
