  • Military officials said a U.S. sailor fatally shot two civilian employees and injured a third Wednesday at the Pearl Harbor shipyard in Hawaii before taking his own life. >> Read more trending news  Update 2:30 p.m. EST Dec. 5: Citing an unidentified military official, The Associated Press reported the shooter who killed two people and injured a third Wednesday at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard was 22-year-old G. Romero. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser identified the shooter as Gabriel Romero and reported he had been assigned to the USS Columbia, a submarine based at Pearl Harbor. Authorities have not yet released the names of those injured or killed in Wednesday’s attack. However, Tara Kapoi told the AP her husband, 30-year-old Vincent Kapoi Jr., was one of the two people killed. Hawaii News Now reported the injured victim, a 36-year-old man, remained in guarded condition Thursday at Queen’s Medical Center. The motive behind the shooting remained unclear Thursday. Officials previously told reporters it was unclear whether the shooter knew the victims. “We have no indication yet whether they were targeted or if it was a random shooting,” said Rear Adm. Robert Chadwick, commander of Navy Region Hawaii. Original report: The military didn’t release a motive or any identifying information about the sailor who opened fire. A third victim is at a hospital. Navy Rear Adm. Robert Chadwick, the commander of Navy Region Hawaii, said he didn’t know what type of weapon the shooter used. He said people aren’t authorized to bring their personal weapons on base. Queen’s Medical Center spokesman Cedric Yamanaka said the hospital was treating a male patient but didn’t give details on his condition. Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam spokesman Charles Anthony confirmed that there was an active shooting at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. The military tweeted that it began around 2:30 p.m. The base has tweeted that the gates and base can be accessed again following a lockdown. The shipyard is across the harbor from the Pearl Harbor National Memorial, which on Saturday will mark the 78th anniversary of the attack by Japan that propelled the U.S. into World War II. Pearl Harbor houses the headquarters for the U.S. Pacific Fleet and is the home port for 10 destroyers and 15 submarines. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
  • Twenty women have filed a lawsuit against Lyft, alleging that ride-share drivers raped or sexually assaulted them. >> Read more trending news  In the lawsuit, filed Wednesday in San Francisco Superior Court, the victims contend that the company ignored their complaints and does little to ensure safety of female passengers. Lyft is based in San Francisco. “This company is harming thousands of women,” said California attorney Mike Bomberger, who filed the suit. “This platform attracts predators.” The women are seeking unspecified financial damages and for Lyft to install cameras in drivers’ vehicles, CBS News reported. A Lyft spokesperson said the company is continuing to improve safety for its passengers. The company implemented 15 additional safety strategies, including background checks, earlier this year, CBS News reported. “What these women describe is something no one should ever have to endure. Everyone deserves the ability to move about the world safely, yet women still face disproportionate risks,” officials said. “We recognize these risks, which is why we are relentless in our work to build safety into every aspect of our work. That means continually investing in new features and policies to protect our riders and drivers.” Lawyers told CBS News that some of the victims were assaulted since those measures were launched. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
  • Police in Texas have a sense of humor this holiday season. Instead of the traditional cookies or breakfast with Santa events, they’re hosting an event called “Mugshots with Santa,” the Houston Chronicle reported. >> Read more trending news  The mugshots come with booking signs that spell out the children’s “crimes.” Think “refusing to nap' and “moving the elf” for the youngest offenders, and “texting addict” and “eye rolling” for the teens. The event raises money for the Pearland Police Department youth outreach program. Some of the proceeds also go to a family in need chosen by the department, the Chronicle reported. Last year they raised $7,000. This year they’re charging $10 for the first person in the photo and $5 for each additional, with a four-person limit because of space. No pets are allowed for now, but there may be an animal-friendly version eventually, the Chronicle reported. Parkland isn’t the only police department with the “Mugshots with Santa” event. Police in Manfield, Texas, held a similar event for the first time last month.
  • A 76-year-old Marion County Jail inmate offered a fellow inmate $4,000 and a car to have four people killed and their remains fed to pigs and alligators, the Marion County Sheriff's Office said Thursday. Investigators said an inmate told a jail deputy that Bangstad approached him about the offer Oct. 20 and that he had the request in writing and signed by Bangstad. >> Read more trending news  Deputies said the request outlined who Bangstad wanted to be murdered, how he wanted them killed, where the victims would be found and how much he was willing to pay. Bangstad told the inmate he wanted “everyone whose name was on the note to be fed to the pigs or alligators” in order to “leave no evidence” behind, investigators said. Bangstad wanted the inmate to draw a map of a mobile home so he could show where each person he wanted to be killed would be sleeping, an arrest report said. The inmate said Bangstad told him he had previously hired someone else, but that person had killed himself before carrying out the murders, the report said. Bangstad was charged Wednesday with five counts of solicitation of murder.
