  • A high school student with special needs was left unattended on a school bus 'throughout the duration of the day,' a spokesman said. >> Read more trending news  Birmingham City Schools officials said they will conduct an investigation after Tuesday's incident, AL.com reported. Spokesman Greg Williams said the bus service was operated by a contractor, the website reported. “The safety of our students is paramount,” Williams said in a statement. “The district is working with the contract bus service to conduct a full investigation and review safety measures in an effort to avoid similar situations in the future.” The student's parents were notified and a school administrator visited the family Tuesday, WIAT reported. Williams said he was 'not at liberty' to discuss the student's health situation and did not say which school the student attended, WBRC reported.
  • Police in Miami Gardens, Florida, are investigating after reports of a burglary at a wig warehouse. WSVN reported that authorities responded to Prime Trading International, a wholesale hair and wig warehouse, Tuesday morning.  Prime Trading International Vice President Rakib Hossain told the station he got a call from his security company and checked the cameras set up at the warehouse from an app on his phone. >> Read more trending news  'I have been here for eight years and this has never happened before to me. It is a big loss for me,' Hossain told WFOR. 'Some products here are very exclusive and worth up to $800. Surveillance video shows a truck backing in to the front door and ramming it at least three times. They tried three times to smash it. They knew exactly what they were doing. They knew where the expensive products were and they knew everything about the stock room.' Hossain told WFOR that the wigs were worth $70,000 to $80,000. One employee, Aaron Harris, told WSVN some wigs were going to a good cause. 'We were going to donate upwards between probably $10,000 to $20,000 worth of hair,' Harris said. Hossain said he will have more security at the warehouse going forward.
  • After a bikini barista shop in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood closed after failing to attract enough customers, a new coffee shop employing shirtless men has taken its place.  >> Read more trending news  As first reported by Capitol Hill Seattle Blog, Dreamboyz Espresso opened on Sept. 13. The owners say it’s currently the only coffee stand operated by shirtless men in Washington state.  The stand is located in a parking lot at the corner of Broadway and Harrison. Ladybug Espresso, which used to occupy the space, closed recently after a lack of business  But the new all-male barista stand is turning a lot of heads.  I saw a hunky guy in there,” said Jacob Haeger, who lives in the neighborhood. “There was a topless guy sitting in there with swollen pecs and whatnot,” he said.  “I saw it was men running it and that was even more awesome. They’re in these kind of brief bikinis and they’re all very good-looking young men, so I think both men and women will enjoy the difference,” said Shoma Goomansingh, another Cap Hill resident.  The Dreamboyz stand is still in its soft open phase. The two baristas put up the sign with the slogan, “Hot Guys Serving Hot Coffee” on Tuesday, and it immediately got people to turn heads and pull out their phones to take a picture. “I worked for Starbucks a couple years back and I really enjoyed being a barista,” said Brandon Peters, one of the new employees.  “I felt like why can women do it but men can't?” said Ja’shaun Williams, another one of the new employees. The owners of the new coffee stand also own 45 LadyBug Bikini Espresso stands with female baristas across Washington and Oregon.  Their Cap Hill location closed a few months ago after a lack of business. The owners said their customers and employees suggested hiring men to serve coffee instead.  And now they’ve decided to go for it. Even people who aren't so into the idea of bikini baristas with women said they're finding this stand has a different vibe.  “I thought it was fun. I've never seen anything like it and I was like yeah, hell yeah this is Capitol Hill. Bring it on,” Haeger said.  People who passed the stand all seemed to think there's no better place for it than in Seattle's Pride central.  “I definitely like the idea of equality with it now. A male stand and female stands. I really like it and I think it's a cool form of a little bit of entertainment with your coffee,” Haeger said. “Everyone's been very appropriate and respectful. I appreciate it, I love it,” Williams said.  The owners are planning a grand opening after all the new signage is up.  The restaurant Teriyaki & Wok that shares the same parking lot said the previous stand with mostly topless women brought in a lot of complaints, but they are happy about the change. 
  • A clothing label is facing criticism after unveiling school shooting-inspired hoodies at a show in New York last weekend. >> Read more trending news  According to the Washington Post, Bstroy, founded in 2012 by Brick Owens and Dieter 'Du' Grams of Atlanta, revealed the controversial pieces from its upcoming spring collection during New York Fashion Week. The company took to social media to share photos of the line, including shirts bearing the names Sandy Hook, Stoneman Douglas, Virginia Tech and Columbine – all sites of deadly mass shootings. The distressed shirts are riddled with holes.  The Vicki Soto Memorial Fund, dedicated to a teacher killed in the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, slammed the brand in an Instagram comment. 'As a Sandy Hook family, what you are doing here is absolutely disgusting, hurtful, wrong and disrespectful,' the comment read. 'You’ll never know what our family went through after Vicki died protecting her students. Our pain is not to be used for your fashion.' Frank Guttenberg, the father of Parkland, Florida, shooting victim Jaime Guttenberg, also panned the designers in a tweet. 'If any of my followers [know] anybody involved with this clothing line, please ask them to stop it immediately,' he wrote. Owens told 'Today' that the line was meant as 'a comment on gun violence and the type of gun violence that needs preventative attention.' He also shared the following on his Instagram page: 'Sometimes life can be painfully ironic,' the post read. 'Like the irony of dying violently in a place you considered to be a safe, controlled environment, like school. We are reminded all the time of life's fragility, shortness and unpredictability, yet we are also reminded of its infinite potential. It is this push and pull that creates the circular motion that is the cycle of life.' Read more here or here.
  • Police are on the scene of a SWAT standoff at a neighborhood in Henry County.  The situation is in the 1000 block of East Shoreview Road in McDonough early Wednesday morning.  We have a reporter and photographer at the scene for a look at the developing situation on Channel 2 Action News This Morning.  Neighbors said they were out of their homes for part of the night. 
  • An hours-long SWAT standoff in Henry County has ended Wednesday morning after a man was carried out of a home on a stretcher. No further information about the subject of the standoff or the cause of the police activity on East Shoreview Road in McDonough has been released. Henry County and Clayton County SWAT teams were assisting McDonough police, according to the Henry agency. The man, who was believed to have barricaded himself inside the home alone, was loaded into the back of an ambulance. An officer at the scene told Channel 2 Action News he was armed.  Residents in the Wesley Lakes neighborhood were allowed back into their homes about 8 a.m. Wednesday. Some, like Juan Hillman, spent the night in their cars. Hillman said he thought his mom was joking when she interrupted his favorite video game to tell him SWAT officers were evacuating the neighborhood. He plays the game often, he said, and his mom has employed similar distraction tactics in the past. “She was like, ‘Come on, hurry up. Get your stuff and leave,’” Hillman told AJC.com. He still didn’t believe her. “I checked outside of her room window and actually see SWAT people there.” That was about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. Hillman, his two siblings, his mother and his stepdad spent the next eight hours sleeping in their car.  Despite the odd sleeping arrangements, Hillman said the night passed uneventfully. He never heard gunfire.  “I didn’t think I would be outside as long as I was because I didn’t hear anything,” he said.  We have an Atlanta Journal-Constitution photographer on the scene working to learn more.  — Please return to AJC.com for updates.
