Workers who arrived at the Island Grill restaurant located in the Red Hills Mall were pounced upon by gunmen while they opened the establishment.

The police reported that around 7:30 yesterday morning, two armed men entered the premises and "held up" the workers.

"It wasn't a hostage situation. They were robbed of two cellphones. They did not get anything else, no money or anything because KingAlarm intervened and the men fled," a constable from the Constabulary Communications Unit said.

According to the constabulary's Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), lawmen were conducting vehicular checkpoint operations on Molynes Road when the man, who was driving a Nissan motorcar, was signalled to stop. He complied and was searched along with the vehicle.

The search of the vehicle revealed an Intratec submachine gun loaded with two 9mm rounds.

Further reports are that the lawmen swiftly obtained a warrant and escorted the man to his home in the Red Hills, where one Ruger 9mm pistol and two-hundred assorted rounds of ammunition were seized.CCU said the 57-year-old "lawbreaker" was then taken into custody where it was discovered that he had served a 21-year prison sentence and was only released 3 years ago.

donald-trump-photo-1.jpgBowling Green, Atlanta and now... Sweden? US President Donald Trump was speaking to supporters on Saturday when he apparently referred to the Scandinavian country as the site of a terror incident -- the latest example of his administration naming a non-existent attack. He was addressing a campaign-style rally in Florida when he launched into a list of places that have been targeted by terrorists.

"You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible," he said, provoking mockery on social media.

His speech was aimed at defending his order last month that blocked refugees and travellers from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States.The order has been suspended by a federal appeals court, and Trump vowed to introduce a new order this week as a means of protecting Americans at home.

He went on to name Brussels, Nice and Paris -- European cities that have been struck by deadly terror attacks. Sweden's embassy in Washington has asked for an explanation, the foreign ministry in Stockholm said Sunday.

"We have now contacted the American (State Department) to understand and receive clarity," ministry press officer Catarina Axelsson told AFP.

Users on Twitter, Trump's favourite communication platform, cracked jokes about the apparent miscue using the hashtags #lastnightinSweden and #SwedenIncident. Former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt asked: "Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound."

Gunnar Hokmark, a Swedish member of the European Parliament, retweeted a post that said "#lastnightinSweden my son dropped his hotdog in the campfire. So sad!"

Hokmark added his own comment: "How could he know?"

Numerous internet wags responded with Ikea-themed tweets. Some posted photos of the impossible-to-understand instructions for assembling Ikea furniture, calling it "Secret Plans for the #SwedenIncident."

Posts flooded into @sweden, the country's official Twitter account which is run by a different Swede each week.

This week's curator, Emma, who describes herself as a school librarian and mother, said the account had received 800 mentions in four hours.

"No. Nothing has happened here in Sweden. There has not (been) any terrorist attacks here. At all. The main news right now is about Melfest," she said, referring to the competition to pick the performer who will represent Sweden at the Eurovision singing contest.

Top Trump aides in his month-old administration have faced criticism and ridicule after speaking publicly about massacres that never took place. White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway -- who famously coined the term "alternative facts" -- referred to a "Bowling Green massacre" during an interview.She later tweeted that she meant to say "Bowling Green terrorists" -- referring to two Iraqi men who were indicted in 2011 for trying to send money and weapons to Al-Qaeda, and using improvised explosive devices against US soldiers in Iraq. And White House spokesman Sean Spicer made three separate references in one week to an attack in Atlanta. He later said he meant to say Orlando, the Florida city where an American of Afghan origin gunned down 49 people at a gay nightclub last year.

johnny-wonder-photo-1.jpgWell well well, the Wonder of it all. Here is Hapilos Ent Group sending out a press release to say that they have basically fired their VP Johnny Wonder.

Then the following day, Johnny Wonder takes to social media to say that he wasn't fired; he in fact, walked away from the company.

So who is telling the truth and who is lying, because somebody has to be a "liar liar pants on fire".

And we all know that there is much more to this than meets the eyes ...and the ears. But we await the unravelling.

kevin-nelson-killer.jpgKevin Kemoy Nelson, the man accused of killing reggae singer Anthony Cruz's daughter, Shanice Smith, and her mother inside their Sunrise home reportedly called and texted friends and family members to tell them what he'd done.

Kevin Nelson 32, was married to Karen Lyle, the 40 year-old mother of Shanice Smith.

According to the arrest report, a neighbor told police he'd heard gunshots on Friday night. And Kevin Nelson's sister said he came to her house Friday night and said he'd gotten into an argument with his wife, Karen Lyle and killed her, the report said. When the sister asked Nelson if he was kidding he said yes, the report said.


Then on Monday morning, Nelson made a 911 call and told the police that there had been gun shots in his area, 2 people were dead and that he was the shooter. The cops immediately went to Nelson's house in Sunrise, but he locked himself inside the house and refused to respond to the police.The report said that during the standoff between Nelson and the police on Monday morning, Nelson texted his dead wife's brother.

"Shanice, Karen and me are all dead. The cops is here and the news crew," the text said, according to the report. An hour later he called Lyle's brother and told him he'd killed Karen Lyle and 15 year-old Shanice Smith, the report said.


One of Lyle's friends said she received several text messages from Nelson, the first at 10:20 a.m. Monday, less than an hour before the 911 call, the report said.

Nelson told the friend Lyle was cheating on him, lying to him, talking down to him and embarrassing him on a regular basis, the report said. He also said he believed she was having sex with her ex-husband, according to the report.

"I am sorry for everything," his last text read.

When the friend called Nelson, he said "I am sorry to inform you that Karen is deceased," the report said. When she asked what happened to her, Nelson said "I shot her," the report said.

The friend also asked about the teen. "I shot her too," he said, according to the report.

Shanice Smith, who was an 'A' student, had attended Piper High School in Sunrise.


Anthony Cruz, who has always been very vocal about his love for his only daughter, posted a photo of Shanice on Facebook Monday, hours after the tragedy.

"I can't believe they kill my one and only daughter in ft. lauderdale," he wrote.

Nelson, 32, is facing two counts of murder in the shooting deaths of 40-year-old Karen Lyle and her 15-year-old daughter, Shanice Smith,

Nelson remained behind bars without bond Tuesday.

US Prosecutors say a Jamaican man has been sentenced to serve more than three years in federal prison for threatening an immigration judge.

Attorney G.F. "Pete" Peterman says 42-year-old Delroy Anthony McLean was sentenced Tuesday to serve three years and five months.

McLean was in federal immigration custody awaiting deportation at the Stewart Detention Center in southwest Georgia. Prosecutors say he threatened during a hearing at that facility to "bash the head" of an immigration judge. They say he also threatened the judge's husband and repeated his comments outside the courtroom.

McLean was found guilty during a trial in October. Prosecutors say he is expected to be deported to his native Jamaica after he serves his sentence.
