Online sleuths point finger at wrong person in fatal California attack, police say

When Riverside police shared photographs of two possible attackers in a fatal fight Aug. 12 outside the Hideaway Cafe and asked the public to phone in tips, generally well-intentioned online sleuths set about publicly pointing fingers at suspects of their choosing instead of discreetly contacting detectives with their suspicions.

As a result, an innocent man received death threats, police had to spend time deleting posts from their Facebook page and, an attorney said, the amateur detectives may have set themselves up for expensive defamation lawsuits.

“We appreciate our community doing their own detective work, but we’d appreciate them, instead of telling everyone about the detective work they did … tell the detective working on the case,” Riverside police Officer Ryan Railsback said.

Adam Valles, 29, of Bloomington, died Aug. 17, from the injuries he suffered shortly after 2 a.m. Aug. 12 outside the bar at the corner of Main Street and Mission Inn

Police: 3 men arrested in fatal shooting of 2 Germantown teens

WASHINGTON — Three men have been arrested in connection to the fatal shooting of two Germantown, Maryland, teenagers from earlier this month, police said Saturday.  

Two Northwest High School students — Shadi Adi Najjar, 17, and Artem S. Ziberov, 18 — were found dead inside a car in the area of Montgomery Village on the night of June 5. Police said earlier this week that they had recovered 30 shell casings from multiple caliber of weapons at the scene.

Manger said police have arrested three men:
