Police Arrest Suspected Campbell Prowler Who Fired Several Shots

CAMPBELL (CBS SF) – Campbell police have a suspect in custody Thursday morning after responding to a report late Wednesday night of a prowler in a residential neighborhood, police said.

At 11:40 p.m. Wednesday, police received a report of a prowler in the 700 block of Cypress Lane. The initial report indicated that there were explosions outside of a residence, police said.

Officers responded and found a suspect in the side yard of a home near the sound wall to state Highway 17. The suspect ran and jumped a fence into the backyard of another home. That’s when officers heard gunshots, police said.

According to police, eight to 12 gunshots were fired over the next 10 to 15 minutes. Police established a perimeter and California Highway Patrol officers closed the southbound lanes of Highway 17 from Hamilton Avenue to San Tomas Expressway.

CHP officers then saw the suspect face down on the ground near Los Gatos Creek. The suspect was eventually taken into custody, police said.

No officers were shot, police said.

Police had continued to search the area to make sure there were no other outstanding suspects and a shelter-in-place order was issued for residents in the area.

At 3:20 a.m., CHP officials said that all of the southbound lanes on Highway 17 were open and a previously issued Sig-alert was canceled.

The shelter-in-place order was lifted around 4:30 a.m. and police said they were no longer searching for other suspects. Police also said there was no other risk to the public.

It has been confirmed to Radio.com that fired hospital staffer Kelly Lombardo is filing a wrongful termination suit against Long Island’s Northwell Health, claiming that she did not access Bieber’s medical records, the stated cause for her termination. Lombardo claims instead she was let go because she is a woman.

The drama began back in May, when a soccer injury led Bieber to visit Northwell Heath with fears that he might have damaged his testicles. While the pop star’s private parts were fine, the health center claims that Lombardo snatched a copy of his files after hearing rumors that he was actually there for STD treatments, according to TMZ.

“My client never accessed Mr. Bieber’s medical file and yet she was fired for doing so,” stated Lombardo’s attorney, David H. Rosenberg.

Power Conservation Urged As California Broils

SACRAMENTO (AP) — The operator of California’s power grid is calling for voluntary conservation of electricity as an intense heat wave broils the state.

The California Independent System Operator says the so-called Flex Alert will be in effect from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Energy demand for the day is forecast to exceed 48,000 megawatts, which would be the highest demand on the grid so far this year.

Officials urge consumers to particularly conserve in the late afternoon because that’s when air conditioners typically at peak use.

Major appliances should be used before or after the Flex Alert period and air conditioners should be set at 78 degrees or higher.

No relief looks to be in sight from the high heat, as hot temperatures are expected to continue through the Labor Day Weekend.

FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) – The ousted superintendent for Navajo Head Start says she was illegally dismissed from the program last month and often faced harassment.

The Daily Times of Farmington, New Mexico, reports Sharon Singer recently filed a grievance alleging that her removal violated tribal law.

Singer also says she faced harassment, intimidation and a hostile work environment by her supervisor, Department of Diné Education Superintendent of Schools Tommy Lewis Jr.

Singer was fired after a Navajo Nation investigation revealed she engaged in misconduct and misused tribal funds.

Lewis denied Singer’s accusations and said the forensic audit showed financial abuse by Singer.
