Andre Hill shot 4 times by former Columbus police officer, autopsy report shows

first_imgFacebook/Andre HillBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Andre Hill, an unarmed Black man who was shot and killed by a now-former police officer in Columbus, Ohio, last year, died from four gunshot wounds, his autopsy report shows.Hill, 47, was shot three times in his right leg and once in his chest, according to the coroner’s report, which was released Friday and obtained by ABC Columbus affiliate WSYX-TV.The cause of death was listed as multiple gunshot wounds.The former officer, Adam Coy, who is white, faces murder charges.Attorneys for Hill’s family charge that the autopsy “shows how reckless this officer was.”“It was not necessary to shoot an unarmed non-threatening individual four times,” Michael Wright, one of the attorneys for Hill’s family, told WSYX upon the release of the report.“Mr. Hill was an innocent unarmed man who suffered,” Wright told the station.Mark Collins, an attorney for Coy, has argued that the indictment, in particular the murder charge, does not make sense, saying it suggests his client knowingly intended to kill Hill.“The knowing element, to cause serious physical harm with a deadly weapon, and someone died, that’s the concept, however, police officers are trained a certain way to take an action and to stop a threat. So that kind of doesn’t make sense,” Collins told WSYX last month.Coy pleaded not guilty to one count of murder, one count of felonious assault and two counts of dereliction of duty last month. He was released from jail on Feb. 9 after posting $1 million bond. His next court hearing is scheduled for April 28.Hill was fatally shot after officers responded to a 311 non-emergency call for a noise complaint on Dec. 22.Coy told officials he thought he saw a firearm on Hill before shooting. Hill had a cellphone in his left hand. No weapons were found.Coy was fired in December after an investigation determined that his use of deadly force was not reasonable.ABC News’ Bill Hutchinson contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Brazil: Prumo to buy Bolognesi Energia’s LNG-fueled power project

first_imgLNG World News Staff Brazil’s Prumo Logística, part of the EIG Global Energy Partners, has signed an agreement with Bolognesi Group to buy the Novo Tempo gas-fired power plant. Local media report the company will look to transfer the project from the Pernambuco state to its Port of Acu in the Rio de Janeiro state where it is looking to develop a liquefied natural gas (LNG) hub.In a notice sent to the Brasilian stock exchange, Prumo informed it has signed a contract with UTE Novo Tempo for the transfer of the authorization for the construction and operation of a 1,238 MW thermal power plant.In addition to the construction authorization, Prumo would also take over 37 energy trading agreements, Novo Tempo signed with energy distribution companies.In 2015, Bolognesi Group signed contracts with Duro Felguera do Brasil and General Electric International for the construction of two gas-fired combined cycle power plants valued at €800 million ($895 million).Each plant would consume 5.5 million cubic meters of gas per day, provided by the LNG regasification terminals with a capacity of 14 million cubic meters per day, also to be built by Bolognesi Energia. The supply of LNG would take place under a 25-year contract with a major international producer.It is unclear whether the construction and LNG supply deals would be maintained by Prumo.1 EUR = 1.11889 USDlast_img read more

Gold for Rose Ð and a new generation of golfers is set to flower

first_img15 Aug 2016 Gold for Rose Ð and a new generation of golfers is set to flower England Golf ambassador Justin Rose is set to inspire a new generation of players after winning the first Olympic gold for golf since the sport’s return to the Games after 112 years.   The Englishman said after his two-stroke triumph at Rio 2016: “I am proud to be able to say that felt better than anything I’ve ever won. “I hope my win and the Olympics inspires people to get into golf, it truly is a sport for everyone, whatever your age or ability. “Back at home England Golf, who supported me as I developed as a golfer, are working with clubs to encourage participation with beginner courses, taster lessons and special events and break down perceived barriers to playing,” added Rose. Golf is already England’s fifth biggest participation sport, with just over 1.1 million adults playing at least once a month – and it’s set to grow rapidly after Rose’s Olympic triumph. England Golf’s Get into golf campaign – which is supported by Sky Sports – offers new and returning players an ideal way into the game with great value coaching from PGA professionals and an introduction to a sport which offers a good social life and many health benefits. Just playing 9-holes of golf means players will walk two to three miles, take over 5000 steps and burn over 450 calories. Rose says: “Golf is a great game for people looking to keep fit, as you don’t need to be an elite athlete to play. It is a game for everyone, of all ages or levels of fitness. It gets you out in the fresh air and doing some gentle, but effective exercise and can only help people looking to get or keep fit.” England Golf Chief Executive Nick Pink added: “Justin’s wonderful win is a fantastic result both for him and for golf. I am certain it will inspire thousands of people to set out to follow in his footsteps and enjoy the great game of golf – and we are ready to help guide them on their way.” He went on: “Everyone can play golf, there are no age limits and your ability doesn’t matter – golf has a handicapping system which irons out the differences between players and means everyone can play with each other. “Golf clubs and driving ranges everywhere are working incredibly hard to attract people to the game and all it has to offer. It’s an excellent game to play with family and friends because there’s plenty of time for conversation on the course and a really good social life in the clubhouse “But there are many myths around golf that we have to debunk. For example, people tell you that it takes all day to play. Nonsense! You can play 9 holes in 2 hours or whizz round a par 3 course in the same time. If you’re really strapped for time you can work well on your game in half an hour at the driving range or on the putting green.” The Golf Express campaign promotes 9-hole golf to encourage busy people to play all the game in half the time. It recognises the paces of modern life and offers 9 hole formats that most golfers can conveniently fit into a busy schedule Rose often plays 9 holes in practice and describes Golf Express as: “A great way to play all the game in half the time.” As an amateur Rose was an England international and a top boy player, winning the U16 and U18 McGregor and Carris Trophies. He turned professional after the 1998 Open championship when he holed from the rough on the last to tie fourth and, in a stellar career, has won the US Open and, now, his Olympic gold. He says: “I’m hoping that a great tournament in Rio will encourage kids all over the country go to their local club or range and start swinging a club. Golf is a game for everyone and I think that the Olympics will help make that point by getting more and more people playing.” Visit to find out about beginner courses, taster lessons and special events at clubs and ranges nationwide.

Few household names on the field at 2010 World Series

first_imgON THE BIG STAGE—Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington responds to a question during a news conference before team practice for the World Series, Oct. 24, in Arlington, Texas. The Rangers reached the World Series for the first time in their 50 years as a franchise by beating the New York Yankees 6-1 Oct. 22 to win the American League Championship Series. (AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez) by Rachel CohenAP Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)—Their games often end way past bedtime for most of the nation. The biggest names linked to them—Nolan Ryan, George W. Bush, Willie Mays and Barry Bonds—won’t be on the field.And yet the World Series matchup of Texas and San Francisco could be intriguing, despite what all the TV ratings people say. If only fans around the country knew these two teams better. The World Series opens today with story lines to spare but not a lot of household names, putting it in danger of drawing some of the lowest television ratings in its history.The Rangers have MVP candidate Josh Hamilton, who overcame substance abuse. Giants ace Tim Lincecum was his league’s best pitcher two years running.Texas has never been to the World Series. The Giants last won it in 1954—before they left New York for San Francisco.It’s the reality of baseball in the 21st century: Some teams lure the viewers, and some don’t. A Philadelphia-Tampa World Series in 2008 set a record low. A year later, with the New York Yankees replacing the Rays as the Phillies’ opponent, the average rating jumped nearly 40 percent.“The whole world wanted to see the Phillies and Yankees in the World Series,” Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff said after his team won the National League pennant. “But you know what? It’s time for new blood.”Fox Sports Vice Chairman Ed Goren, whose network televises the series recalled the refrain of baseball fans just over a decade ago: “The Yankees just bought another World Series.”“For years, fans said, ‘We want parity,’” Goren said Monday on a conference call. “Well, you got it.”He noted that in the last six World Series, the only team to appear more than once was the Phillies in 2008 and ’09. While Goren expressed the required confidence of a TV executive that this matchup would fare just fine in the ratings, he acknowledged that it took longer for fans to warm up to teams they were less familiar with.MLB almost got a rematch of that enticing pairing this season. Instead, Texas and San Francisco pulled upsets in the League Championship Series.If the Yankees or Red Sox or Cubs or Dodgers are in the World Series, there’s a hook for casual fans from the start. Networks need competitive games and long series for viewers to be lured in when the teams lack national followings.“Initially, it’ll be lower, I would think,” Goren said. “As a series builds, you get to six or seven games, you’ll be fine.”While both teams are in sizable markets—Dallas-Fort Worth ranks fifth and the Bay Area is sixth, according to Nielsen—they play many of their games in the Pacific time zone and they are rarely on national television.When Barry Larkin went home to Orlando, Fla., in seasons that his Cincinnati Reds missed the playoffs, the All-Star shortstop saw just how much the identity of the teams swayed interest in the World Series. With no home team to root for, Orlando residents were intrigued only by a few clubs that were from the region, generated national appeal or had a minor-league affiliate nearby.“When those teams were involved, there was much more of a buzz in that area,” said Larkin, who retired in 2004 and now works as an analyst for MLB Network. “When they were not, it was so obvious that people could care less.”Larkin, who won a World Series in 1990, believes players such as Lincecum and Hamilton lack the star power to attract casual fans despite their dominant statistics.“I think they are not because of the way baseball markets its players,” Larkin said. “It markets its teams as opposed to marketing players.”A player like Derek Jeter is far more famous for winning championships with the Yankees than for his batting average or home runs.“Individually you get recognition within the team concept,” Larkin said.Casual fans tuning in to this World Series may be more likely to recognize Texas’ current owner Nolan Ryan, or the 43rd president, the team’s former owner. Mays and Bonds may outshine the current Giants from the stands.In 2002, while Bonds was still playing for San Francisco, the Giants and Angels met in the World Series and even went the full seven games. They still averaged what at the time was a record-low rating.About 3 million cable TV subscribers in the New York area—out of the nation’s nearly 115 million homes with televisions—won’t even be able to watch the World Series unless Fox and Cablevision settle their dispute. Goren called the effect “nominal.”Fox play-by-play announcer Joe Buck jokes that he visits Dallas nearly every week during NFL season to call Cowboys games. The network has never sent him to Texas to cover a Rangers game, proving it’s not just about market size but the marketability of certain teams.Buck expects to spend a lot of time educating fans about Rangers manager Ron Washington’s admission of cocaine use and Giants closer Brian Wilson’s beard.“You can’t assume everybody knows all about that to a national audience,” he said.If the series just goes long enough, he hopes those fans have enough time to learn to love these two unfamiliar teams.last_img read more

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 30, 2015)–Arguably the quickest horse on the grounds, trainer Jeff Bonde’s Distinctiv Passion figures to be tested early as he defends his title in the Grade III, $100,000 Midnight Lute Stakes for older horses at 6 ½ furlongs this Saturday at Santa Anita.Idle since running a well-beaten fifth in the Grade I, six furlong Santa Anita Sprint Championship on Oct. 3, the 6-year-old Florida-bred horse by With Distinction could likely get early pressure from the likes of California-bred San Onofre, and rising star, Seattle Seranade.

Owned by Jacobson and Southern Equine Stable, LLC, Salutos Amigos has banked a Midnight Lute-best $1,122,406.A sharp second in both the Grade III, six furlong Los Angeles Stakes and Grade II, 6 ½ furlong Kona Gold Stakes this past spring at Santa Anita, trainer Karen Headley’s San Onofre has been idle since well beaten in the Grade I, seven furlong Triple Bend Stakes here on June 27.Naturally quick, the 6-year-old California-bred gelding by Surf Cat will hope to survive what could develop into an all-out rush for the lead with Distinctiv Passion. Owned by Matson Racing, lightly raced San Onofre, who will be bidding for his first stakes win, is 9-4-4-0 with earnings of $273,040.Jerry Hollendorfer’s Seattle Serenade, who comes off a smashing 6 ¼ length allowance score going six furlongs at Los Alamitos on Dec. 11, will try stakes company for the first time as he tries to remain unbeaten in what will be his third career start. A 4-year-old Kentucky-bred colt by Smart Strike, Seattle Serenade was bred in-part by Hill ‘N’ Dale Equine Holdings.Owned by Hollendorfer, Hill ‘N’ Dale Equine Holdings, Inc., and Mark DeDominico, Seattle Serenade will break from the rail with regular rider Mike Smith.The complete field for the Grade III Midnight Lute Stakes, to be run as the sixth race on a nine-race card Saturday, with jockey and weights in post position order: Seattle Serenade, Mike Smith, 119; San Onofre, Alex Solis, 119; Distinctiv Passion, Edwin Maldonado, 121; Pulling G’s, Victor Espinoza, 119; Raised a Secret, Fernando Perez, 119; All Run, Mario Gutierrez, 119, and Salutos Amigos, Martin Garcia, 121.First post time on Saturday is at 12:30 p.m., with admission gates opening at 10:30 a.m.last_img read more


first_imgRAMON VAZQUEZ, SUBTLE INDIAN, SECOND: ​”I think (Subtle Indian) ran a good race today. He never quits and he tries really hard. I think he is better at six furlongs. Today, at six and a half he had to go a little more. In this case, the other horse just ran better than mine. I think he has potential to be better in the future. I’ve ridden this horse four times and he keeps getting better.”             RAFAEL BEJARANO, WILD DUDE, WINNER: “I had a very good trip. I knew that (Subtle Indian) would go to the lead. I thought other horses would go with him too, so I just took my time. I knew my horse would show me a big kick but I had to make sure by the three-eighths pole that I had enough room. I let him go in the stretch, had a clean trip and my horse won.” JERRY HOLLENDORFER, WILD DUDE, WINNER: “We gave this horse a little time, and he’s been training really well. I thought he would run a heck of a race. I didn’t know if the number one post would hurt him, but he got real lucky and got through, so that was what won the race for him. He’s a real nice horse. He’s a millionaire now, and we’re very proud of him.” TRAINER QUOTES Notes: The winning owners are Jerry Hollerndorfer of Richmond, CA and Green Smith, Jr. ROBERTINO DIODORO, SUBTLE INDIAN, SECOND: “Yeah, he ran tough. I thought he showed a lot of guts today. At the top of the lane it looked like they might run right over him. He ran a tough race.“Ramon gets along with him and he’s a good rider so, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. He’s been on a winning streak with him, so why change rider’s right?“We’ll give him a few day then start making a plan. We don’t think he’s going anywhere. We’ll keep him here for now.” JOCKEY QUOTESlast_img read more
