Son Allegedly Shoots Own Father at Sandtown Winchester Funeral

first_imgAntonio Addison allegedly shot his father while attending his brother’s funeral. (Baltimore Police Department)What was meant to be a celebration of life for Antonio Addison, 22 , who was gunned down last month on the streets of West Baltimore, turned into almost the same scene, however, this time it was inside of a church. On Tuesday, family and friends gathered at the New Song Worship & Arts Center in Sandtown-Winchester for a repast after the funeral service where the tradition ended with a 47 year old man being shot in the stomach. The suspect is his own son, 26-year-old Antonio Addison of the 1600 Block of Walterswood Road in Baltimore. The two brothers share the same first and last names.“They got into some sort of argument at this repast over what was said or how it was said at the funeral, and the suspect in this case decided to pull out a gun that he bought with him to this event and shot his own father,” said T.J. Smith, Baltimore Police public information Officer, at a news conference.According to witnesses, the father and the son argued over an omission in the obituary written by a family member, police said. The brother’s name was not in the obituary said Charles Addison, the grandfather. “The place was full of children. They ran out the back and I ran out the front.”The 47-year-old father is expected to survive and his 26 year old son was taken into custody.The shooting happened inside of the church’s lobby, located at Gold and North Calhoun Street said police. Hordes of officers, detectives, along with the police commissioner and deputy commissioner, took over the church as those who attended the service, dressed in white attire, some with “R.I.P” and “Gone but not forgotten” T-Shirts on, watched from the street.Later, family members carried out the food which was supposed to be eaten at a celebration of Addison’s life.Addison was killed not to far from New Song on May 25. He was shot several times and he was found inside of a home just before 6 p.m.“I really can’t even describe how unnecessary and senseless this situation is,” Smith said. “There’s still food on the table inside.”Next door to the church, William Pinderhughes Elementary/Middle School was locked down, keeping the children a half-hour after dismissal said administrators.Sadly, this is not the first time that gun violence has interrupted a home going service. Virginia McGhee, 34, was shot and killed in 2009 at the viewing for her boyfriend who was shot and killed the week before. This shooting was at a funeral home about a half-mile from Tuesday’s church shooting. In 2008, two people were shot while attending the viewing of a man who had been killed in a triple shooting. In 2001, a man attending the funeral for his murdered brother was shot while he was leaving the service.“Fortunately, no one else was injured as a result of this, and again, it’s just that senseless that we talk about,” Smith stated.In the aftermath, the church door was locked and signs that Bible Study had been canceled had been taped to the front door.Pastor Louis Wilson of New Song Worship & Arts Center was not available for comment.last_img read more

With the help of AR, users can practice blocking penalty kicks from a life-size goal, including some that approach with 80 miles per hour — speeds that Naeher will be facing once the World Cup officially starts later this week.Gannett and USA Today emerging technology director Ray Soto readily admitted that he hadn’t been able to block any of those super-fast balls either when he demonstrated the experience at the sidelines of the Augmented World Expo in Santa Clara, Calif. last week. “You really don’t know where this is going to go, but I don’t think Alyssa does either,” he said. Soto said that his team initially just planned to include those 80 mph shots in the experience, but quickly realized that this would be too overwhelming for most users. That’s why the experience now also includes a much more manageable training phase, as well as an intermediate stage with balls coming in at 40 mph.The entire experience is modeled after real penalty kicks, tasking users to block 5 shots. It is being narrated in part by Naeher herself, who Soto’s team recently got to scan and turn into a 3D AR hologram. “Team USA and Alyssa were fantastic,” he said.In addition to the goalkeeper experience, USA Today is also launching a second AR component, which introduces Team USA on the field in a tabletop-like setting. Soto said that the app would be constantly updated to reflect any changes in Team USA’s line-up. The two-part AR experience went  live within USA Today’s iOS and Android apps Tuesday.center_img Popular on Variety last_img read more
