gun police armed robbery

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A scary and dangerous situation developed Friday night in a busy Kroger parking lot on Richmond Road, according to Lexington Police.

Investigators say three juveniles were waving a gun around in the parking lot around 8:00 p.m.

The weapon turned out to be a BB Gun, but police say it looked like a real gun.

Police say when they arrived on the scene, the juveniles took off running and a chase began.

One juvenile was caught across the street at an apartment complex. As of this writing, the other two juveniles were still on the run. No names were released because of the suspects ages.

Police say they’re trying to determine if this incident is connected to the front door glass being shot out by a BB Gun at a home on Mount Tabor Road Friday evening.

UConn's 111-game winning streak ends, Miss St wins at buzzer

When the final shot swished through the net and UConn’s record streak was over, all Geno Auriemma could do was smile.

The Huskies’ 111-game run came to a stunning end when Mississippi State pulled off perhaps the biggest upset in women’s basketball history, winning 66-64 on Morgan William’s overtime buzzer beater in the national semifinals Friday night.

“I can’t say I’m surprised,” Auriemma said. “It’s something I’ve been talking about to the guys all year long. I’ve been talking about it all year. We’re playing way above our years, way above our experience level and tonight it caught up to us when we needed to be more mature with what we’re doing.”

“We didn’t have it. A big part of it was because of what they were doing,” the coach said.

The Huskies hadn’t lost in 865 days, with that defeat coming to Stanford in overtime on Nov. 17, 2014. Winning had become routine, often by routs. But in an instant, their drive toward a fifth consecutive national championship had been blocked.

When William’s jumper dropped, Auriemma broke into that wry smile. He turned to his bench, then went to congratulate the Bulldogs.

“We had an incredible run, but we came up against a much better team tonight,” Auriemma said.

It took an incredible shot by Mississippi State’s diminutive point guard to end the historic streak.

William hit a 15-footer to cap it, moments after a replay review awarded UConn two free throws for a flagrant 1 foul call that tied the game with 26.6 seconds left.

“I live for moments like this,” William said. “UConn, they’re an incredible team. For me to make that shot against them, it’s unbelievable. I’m still in shock right now. I wanted to take the shot. I wanted to take the shot and I made it.”

The Bulldogs (34-4) will play South Carolina for the national championship Sunday night in a matchup of two SEC teams.

Mississippi State and UConn met in the Sweet 16 last season and the Huskies won by 60 points — the most-lopsided win in regional semifinals history. All season long the Bulldogs had that humiliating loss on their minds.

Now they’ve erased that defeat, beating UConn (36-1) on the grandest stage in one of the sport’s greatest games.

“I don’t have to play them 100 times. Only have to beat them once,” Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer said. “That is one heck of a basketball team, the greatest of all-time. But how proud am I of my kids?”

Mississippi State led 64-62 before a replay review gave Katie Lou Samuelson the two free throws that tied the game. After a UConn turnover, William held the ball at the top of the key before dribbling to her right and pulling up for the shot, with the ball in the air when the buzzer sounded.

The Bulldogs ran onto the court, piling up at center court while UConn players stood stone-faced. Schaefer grabbed William in a bear hug, with former Mississippi State star Dak Prescott — the Dallas Cowboys quarterback — helping lead the cheers.

Prescott said he’d try to come back Sunday for the title game.

UConn rallied from a 16-point deficit, its biggest during its NCAA record streak, to take a 59-56 lead in the fourth quarter. The teams were tied at 60 when the Bulldogs had a chance to win it in regulation, but William’s shot was blocked by Gabby Williams, sending the game into overtime.

“Maybe we’re just not ready for this. Maybe we were ready for everything else, but maybe we’re just not mature enough for this,” Auriemma said. “Maybe all our young kids needed to experience this so that we can come back and really be ready for this.”

Neither team scored much in OT with Teaira McCowan’s layup with 1:12 left in the extra session breaking a 62-62 tie. It was the lone basket for Mississippi State in OT until William’s game-winner.

During their last two decades of dominance where they’ve won 11 national championships, the Huskies rarely found themselves trailing — let alone by double-digits. This was the first time this season that UConn was losing in the fourth quarter.

The Bulldogs got off to a great start, taking it right at the Huskies like not many teams had done during the streak. The Bulldogs led 15-13 before scoring 14 straight points to go up 29-13. It was the biggest deficit UConn had faced during its historic streak and one of the largest during the last 22 years, which the Huskies have dominated with 11 national championships.

The Huskies rallied to within 29-25 as senior Saniya Chong scored seven points during a 12-0 run. Mississippi State answered and was up 36-28 at the half.

UConn came back in the third quarter behind its trio of All-Americans with Williams, Napheesa Collier and Samuelson keying a 12-3 run to start the second half. That run brought Huskies alums Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart and Maya Moore, who were sitting 20 rows behind the UConn bench, to their feet.

STREAK BUSTER: The loss ended a 28-game NCAA Tournament winning streak for UConn. The last loss came to Notre Dame in 2012 in the Final Four. That was the last OT game in the national semifinals.

QUARTERBACK CONNECTION: Prescott wasn’t the only QB in attendance on Friday night. Donovan McNabb was also in Dallas, cheering on niece Kia Nurse, who stars for Connecticut. Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was supporting his sister Anna, who is a freshman at Stanford in the first game.

GOOD MORNING MISSISSIPPI: Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts was sitting at center court. She was cheering on the Bulldogs, who hail from her home state. Roberts brought out a Bulldogs jersey on her morning show.

Suspects in Trinity Gay murder to be tried together

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Fayette Circuit judge ruled Friday that all four suspects in the shooting death of a 15-year old girl will be tried together.

38-year old Chazarae Taylor is charged with wanton murder and wanton endangerment. His 19-year old son, D’Markeo Taylor, and 20-year old Lamonte Williams, both face wanton endangerment charges. A fourth man, Dvonta Middlebrooks, is charged with wanton endangerment and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Investigators haven’t said who they think fired the deadly shot that killed Trinity Gay, but they say they charged Chazarae Taylor with murder because they say he created the environment that led up to the shooting.

Police say the teen was in the parking lot of the Cook Out Restaurant on South Broadway in October of last year in the wee hours of a Sunday morning when she was caught in the crossfire of gunfire between the suspects who they say were shooting at each other from two different vehicles.

Trinity Gay is the daughter of Lexington native and U.S. Olympic sprinter Tyson Gay.

The teen’s death led for calls to end gun violence in the city and a bill filed in Frankfort in her name. A mural paying tribute to Gay was painted by a local artist on the outside wall of Whitaker Bank Ballpark in Lexington.

The judge in the case set a deadline of May 12, 2017, for the defense to file all of its pretrial motions. The next hearing is scheduled for June 9, 2017.

Man fights for admission after UK mistakenly sends him an acceptance letter

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- A father of three is continuing his fight to get into UK’s graduate school after being sent an acceptance letter last year, then finding out it was all a mistake.
Myron Guthrie says he uprooted his entire life in Tennessee, moving his family and business to Lexington last summer after being accepted into UK’s grad school.
But when he walked on campus to begin his classes, Guthrie was told his admission into the program was one big error.
“The classes and what, some of the folks that worked here and just the vibe that, you know, that basically told me that hey you know this may be the placed for me to go to school,” said Guthrie.

Guthrie says he was ecstatic after finding out he had been accepted into UK’s graduate program, moving his three children and video production business to Lexington with the dream of getting his masters.

“I don’t play basketball. I don’t play football. You know, I have a bachelors degree. Well you know to be accepted based on that is a big deal at least for some people, at least for me,” said Guthrie.

But then just two days after fall term began Guthrie was told he was mistakenly admitted into the program and would actually not be accepted because his undergraduate degree didn’t meet UK’s accreditation standards.

“There are a lot of confused people here. Not just me but there’s a lot of confused people. I know I was accepted, three acceptance letters in five months and it’s unacceptable you know not to step up and take care of that,” said Guthrie.

The college says human error lead to Guthrie’s false acceptance and that while it is unfortunate the school is not liable for mistakes.
But Guthrie disagrees, recruiting the help of the Lexington NAACP to fight for his admission.

“We want to make sure that people know exactly what uk’s about. That if you receive an acceptance and you’re admitted to this university you might want to double check before you move yourself to this state,” said Adrian Wallace, president of the Lexington NAACP.

On behalf of Guthrie, the NAACP has filed a complaint with the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office and called on Governor Bevin to investigate UK’s graduate school.

“You know there’s still a lot of unanswered questions and that’s what we want is just answers and you know this thing to be cleared up,” said Guthrie.
The Kentucky Attorney General’s Office says cases like Guthrie’s are not within its jurisdiction.
So far Guthrie and the NAACP say they have not received a response from the governor’s office.

Former Cat leads Wyoming to CBI crown

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) – Former Kentucky Wildcat Allen Edwards is a national champion again.

Hayden Dalton scored 19 points with 11 rebounds and Justin James added 17 points to carry Wyoming to an 83-59 win over Coastal Carolina to claim the CBI championship on Friday.

Dalton sank 5 of 9 from long range in notching his 12th double-double of the season. Wyoming (23-15) won the last two games – at home – by routs in the best-of-three College Basketball Invitational finals series after dropping the opener by 10 on the road.

It was Wyoming’s first national title since the 1943 NCAA championship.

Coastal Carolina (20-19) was led by Demario Beck with 17 points, while Jaylen Shaw had 10.

The Chanticleers, who never led, closed within 44-34 after a 3-pointer by Joseph Williams-Powell from the top of the key with 15:37 to play. But James’ layup and a trey by Dalton ignited an 18-7 roll that left the Cowboys ahead 62-41.

The Chanticleers never got closer than 18 after that, and the lead eventually reached 81-51 late.

Willis shines, earns MVP honors in Reese’s All-Star Game

PHOENIX – Awarded one final college game after a tremendous college career, Kentucky men’s basketball senior Derek Willis made the most of the of the opportunity Friday with a solid performance in the Reese’s College All-Star Game.

 

Willis recorded 13 points, a team-high eight rebounds, a block and a steal for the West Team in 21 minutes at the University of Phoenix Stadium, site of this year’s Final Four. Willis made 6 of 11 shots and was named the Reese’s Perfect Player from the West.

 

The East defeated the West 121-90 in the annual all-star game.

 

The Reese’s College All-Star Game, hosted by the National Association of Basketball Coaches, annually features 20 of the top seniors in college basketball and is one of the featured events leading up to the games at the Final Four.

 

Willis’ participation marked the first time the game has featured a UK player since its inception in 2009.

 

Willis finished his Kentucky career with 555 points scored, 354 rebounds and 108 3-point field goals made. His career 3-point field-goal percentage (.3985) ranks 12th among the school’s all-time leaders.

 

The senior from Mt. Washington, Kentucky, was a member of four NCAA Tournament teams, three Southeastern Conference regular-season championships, three SEC Tournament titles and two Final Four appearances.

 

Willis played an integral role in each of the last two seasons during limited minutes in his freshman and sophomore seasons. He averaged 7.7 points and led the team in 3-point field goal percentage with a .442 clip during his junior season. He led the SEC in 3-point field-goal percentage a year ago during conference play.

 

In his senior season, Willis notched career highs in points (267), rebounds (205), blocks (39), assists (34) and steals (25). He was a central figure in UK’s late-season defensive improvement, totaling 18 blocks over the last nine games after recording 21 in the previous 29. He averaged 5.4 rebounds on the season, including 7.3 over the last 12 games.

 

Among Willis’ career highlights is a 25-point performance with a career-high seven 3-pointers vs. Tennessee last season. He came up big during UK’s run to the Elite Eight, averaging 7.8 points and 7.3 rebounds in the NCAA Tournament.
