Bizarre: Man Hits Child In Car, Stops To Help, Gets Shot

Milwaukee two shot dead after road accident

A motorist who knocked down and killed a two-year-old girl in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has been shot dead after stopping to help at the scene of the accident.

A gunman, apparently enraged that a van had struck a 2-year-old boy Sunday in Milwaukee, not only “assassinated” the driver of the van – in the words of Mayor Tom Barrett – but also shot the toddler’s 15-year-old brother, who had rushed to the scene.  The 15-year-old boy, who was not in the vehicle, was shot in the shoulder and later died in hospital.

The accident happened on Sunday at 5:10pm after the child ran into the street and was hit by a van.

Rasheed T. Chiles, 15, had been attending a party at a nearby house with his brother, 2-year-old Damani T. Terry.  Damani was hit by the van.

Archie Brown Jr., 40, was driving the van about 5:10 p.m. Sunday in the 4600 block of N. 48th St., near Wahl Park in Milwaukee when he hit Damani, who had run into the road, according to Milwaukee police.

Brown immediately jumped out and was reportedly grieving and upset as he stood over the body.

Police have said there were no suspects in custody.  Milwaukee police continued on Monday to work on identifying the shooting suspect.

In the late afternoon, Attorney Michael Hupy offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who shot Brown.  An upset Hupy said it was the fourth time ever he has offered a reward in a murder case.

Police Captain Timothy Heier said the 41-year-old driver remained at the scene to help and was then shot along with the teenager, who was not a passenger.

Sky News reports the driver was 41, whereas The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel states he was 40.

The driver was identified by his father.  Archie Brown, Sr. said his son was the father of four daughters, including one who was six months old.

Man Shot And Killed After Trying To Run Down Police

A man who had posted an online video threatening to kill police and FBI agents supposedly tried to use his car to run down officers seeking to arrest him on Tuesday and, fearing for their lives, they shot and killed him, authorities said.

The man was killed in Upper Darby, suburban Philadelphia, as officers ordered him out of the car and he appeared ready to accelerate at them as they manned a blockade.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said officers feared 52-year-old Joseph Pacini would kill them Tuesday and that they “did what they had to do.” Together, five officers fired about 20 shots, he said. No officers were injured.

The man’s death comes a little more than a week after a man who made similar threats shot two New York Police Department officers dead in their patrol car and then killed himself in a subway station.

Pacini posted three online videos with rambling messages and threats after a detective left a message for him regarding an altercation Monday at a fitness club, Chitwood said.

Pacini described the videos as a response to the message, saying in one that police had destroyed and tortured him and demanding the detective “back off.”

If police tried arresting him, Pacini said, there would be “serious and irreversible catastrophic consequences,” including the deaths of law enforcement officers.

Police secured an arrest warrant Tuesday.

Pacini’s record included a 2005 arrest for locking his Philadelphia landlord in an office while facing eviction and demanding $1,500 at knifepoint to leave, Chitwood said. The charges were later withdrawn, according to court records.

Pacini was living with his mother when she had him involuntarily committed, Chitwood said. The date of the commitment was not immediately available. They were still living together in a Clifton Heights apartment at the time of his death.

“Certainly in his rant on the Dec. 29 YouTube where he threatened to kill any police, FBI or CIA that came after him, or their families, it was clear that those mental health issues were still affecting his life,” Chitwood said.
