An 8-week old baby was taken to a Brooklyn hospital with multiple fractures this week — and cops are investigating whether the tot was abused, police sources said.
The infant’s parents brought the boy from their home on Avenue K near East 46th Street in Flatlands to Brooklyn Hospital with fractures to his ribs, arm and leg, according to the sources.
The 31-year-old mother and 32-year-old father are being interviewed by police, and the Administration for Children’s Services is involved, the sources said.
The circumstances remain under investigation.
New video shows cops in aftermath of shooting
Newly-released video shows officers walking through shell casings after Breonna Taylor was shot dead in her apartment by Louisville police — with the only officer charged in the deadly Kentucky raid calmly wandering back into the crime scene.
“Is that theirs?” fired detective Brett Hankison is heard asking as he walks among shell casings at the entry of Taylor’s apartment in bodycam footage obtained by VICE News.
Shining his flashlight down the hallway where 26-year-old EMT Taylor was fatally shot, Hankison is also heard asking if there are “any guns visible.”
“Like a long gun?” he asks after an investigator tells him they “did not see any,” according to the Vice report.
The presence of the officer — recently indicted with wanton endangerment for firing shots into a neighbor’s apartment during the botched raid — is just one of “multiple” violations of department policy, VICE said.
The force’s policy dictates that the officers involved should have immediately been assigned an “escort officer” to take them to the Public Integrity Unit (PUI) office in order to verify that each officer “is isolated from all non-essential individuals for the remainder of the initial investigation,” according to the Lousiville Courier-Journal.
The Public Integrity Unit investigates officer-involved shootings.
“I’ve never seen anything like this,” a former LMPD narcotics officer, who reviewed parts of the footage, told VICE News. “This is not how it’s supposed to work.”
The footage obtained by the outlet also shows how SWAT officers at the scene were uncomfortable.
“I’d back out until they get PIU in here,” SWAT officer Sgt. Brandon Hogan tells Hankison.
“This is a crime scene,” the investigator also warns, according to VICE.
Hankison then later walks up to a SWAT team member standing on the sidewalk and asks if his body camera is on — with the video cutting out, VICE said.
The footage also showed other officers involved in the raid remaining on scene — with one even helping to interview neighbors and potential witnesses.
Detective Myles Cosgrove — who fired 16 rounds but was not charged — also roamed freely while still carrying a rifle, the report said.
Louisville officials have long insisted that no bodycam footage exists of the raid or deadly shooting itself.
However, VICE said it obtained hours of footage from SWAT officers and others who arrived after the shooting.
Another clip shows Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, being threatened with a police K9 as he was arrested outside the apartment after he was accused of opening fire on the officers.
“Walk straight back or I will send this dog on you!” an officer yells, according to the report.
When he asked what he did, the footage then apparently shows Hankison telling him, “You’re going to prison, that’s what’s going on. For the rest of your f—ing life.”
LMPD, Hankison’s attorney, and the union attorney who was present for officers’ interviews did not immediately respond to VICE’S requests for comment on the footage.
NH husband ‘murders wife’s lover, forced her to decapitate his body’
An alleged husband from hell, New Hampshire authorities claim, murdered his wife’s lover in a jealous rage and then forced her to decapitate him, The U.S. Sun reports.
Then he compelled her to bury the head in the woods.
The husband, Armando Barron, 30, and the wife, Brittany Barron, 31, have both been charged in connection with the murder and decapitation of Jonathan Amerault, 25, in Manchester.
The wife allegedly decapitated Amerault and, directed by her murderous husband, buried her lover’s noggin in a remote campsite in the Northwoods, near the Maine border.
After discovering the affair, Britany told police Armando beat her, and at one point put a loaded pistol into her mouth.
Furious over being cuckolded, the husband used his wife’s cell phone on Saturday, September 19 to trick Amerault into walking directly into his doom and decapitation.
Armando lured the lover to Annette Wayside Park in Rindge, New Hampshire.
There, the jealous husband allegedly attacked Amerault and, with decapitation in mind as an ultimate goal, attempted to get his wife to shoot Amerault.
The New Hampshire Union Leader reports that it was a group of hunters inspecting an illegal campsite who discovered Amerault’s headless body.
Amerault’s co-workers told police that a woman named Britany Barron had called out of work Monday and said she was going to find a new job, according to a state police detective’s affidavit. Office gossip had it that Amerault and Barron were romantically involved, though Barron was married.

The husband allegedly forced his wife to slash Amerault’s wrists before shooting him three times, completing the murder. Then it was time for the decapitation.
After the conclusion of the murder, Armando provided his wife Britany with a saw to complete the gruesome deed — with the husband thereby forcing her to decapitate her lover’s corpse.
According to CBS Boston, following the murder and decapitation, the husband and wife drove some 200 miles north to hide the body.
The couple left Amerault near a brook — dead, wrapped in plastic.
Britany Barron is facing charges for falsifying evidence.
Both the husband and the wife are being held without bail in the wake of the murder and decapitation.
Britany apparently confessed her role in the gruesome act after wildlife conservation officers found her at the campsite where she attempted to hide the remains.
“I’m in big trouble,” the wife said as her and her husband’s murder and decapitation efforts quickly came to light.
According to NBC 5, Armando is facing a capital murder charge.
Amerault was reported missing early this week after he didn’t show up to work. His body was found Tuesday in an unincorporated area of Atkinson and Gilmanton Academy Grant more than 200 miles away in Coos County.
Pelosi preparing House for possible undecided November election
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has begun rallying Democrats in the event neither President Trump nor Joe Biden outright win the Electoral College, according to a report.
In the event of an Electoral College tie, the House would decide through a process that would allow each of the 50 state delegations one vote — which hasn’t happened since 1876, Politico reported Sunday.
And as it stands currently, Republicans control 26 state delegations to the Democrats’ 22 — with Pennsylvania split evenly and Michigan a 7-6 plurality for Democrats, with a 14th seat held by independent Justin Amash.
In a letter to House Democrats, Pelosi set the stakes for the Nov. 3 election.
“The Constitution says that a candidate must receive a majority of the state delegations to win,” Pelosi wrote, according to the report. “We must achieve that majority of delegations or keep the Republicans from doing so.”
Under this high-stakes scenario, a single seat could determine whether a delegation is Democrat or Republican and it could set off ferocious legal partisan battles in the states to pick winners, Politico reported.
It could also lead Democrats to focus resources on states like Montana and Alaska — typically Republican strongholds — where flipping even one House seat could change the delegation’s makeup.
Pelosi has been pursuing the issue with her leadership team, and House Democrats said they’re aware of the concerns.
“We’re trying to win every seat in America, but there are obviously some places where a congressional district is even more important than just getting the member into the US House of Representatives,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) told Politico.
Meanwhile, Trump talked about the possibility of the House deciding the election during a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday.
“And I don’t want to end up in the Supreme Court and I don’t want to go back to Congress either, even though we have an advantage if we go back to Congress — does everyone understand that?” Trump said.
“I think it’s 26 to 22 or something because it’s counted one vote per state, so we actually have an advantage. Oh, they’re going to be thrilled to hear that.”
