The investigation into the crash of Germanwings Flight 9525 has not revealed evidence of the co-pilot Andreas Lubitz’s motive, but he suffered from suicidal tendencies at some point before his aviation career.

Cops: Shoplifting suspect charged after tussle with Stop & Shop security

A 55-year-old Bridgeport man is facing robbery charges after he allegedly shoved a security guard at Super Stop & Shop 1 , 1160 Kings Highway Cutoff, during an alleged shoplifting incident Monday afternoon. George Verras, of Morehouse Street in Bridgeport, was charged with third-degree robbery, third-degree assault and sixth-degree larceny. According to police, store security personnel said they saw Verras hiding $26 worth of merchandise, including a knife sharpener, kitchen tongs, Advil and a package of razors, and attempt to leave the store without paying.

After he was stopped, according to the report, Verras was walking with two security employees to the store’s office when he shoved one of them against the wall and ran off. The employee who got pushed called 911, while the other chased Verras into the parking lot and onto the property next door, where he was found trying to hide in some bushes. The items he had taken were found under a trash bin, police said.

Verras allegedly told police he pushed the employee and ran because he had panicked.

Bond was set at $750 and he is scheduled to appear April 13 at state Superior Court 2 in Bridgeport.

1 dead after Fort Meade gate crashing

Officers opened fire after two men dressed as women refused to stop a stolen vehicle Monday at the National Security Agency gate at Fort Meade and then smashed into a police vehicle blocking the road, officials said. One of the men died, and the other man and an officer were hurt. The FBI identified the man who died on Tuesday as Ricky Shawatza Hall, 27.

Officials close to the case told 11 News that the suspects were dressed as women and that there were plenty of chances for the incident to end nonviolently. The FBI said the men were dressed as women but not in an attempt to disguise themselves from authorities.

The NSA released a statement Monday afternoon saying the driver of the sport utility vehicle, Hall, disobeyed instructions from an NSA police officer and failed to stop shortly before 9 a.m. Authorities deployed barriers at the gate as the SUV accelerated toward an NSA police vehicle blocking the road. NSA police fired at the SUV, which crashed into the NSA police vehicle.

Hall was pronounced dead at the scene. A cause of death was not immediately determined. According to court records, Hall has a criminal history in Baltimore City.

He was found guilty of robbery in August 2013. The passenger in the SUV was taken to a hospital. One NSA police officer was injured and was taken to a hospital.

He has since been released. VIDEO: Men dressed as women charge gate at Fort Meade 4 THIS IS 11 NEWS AT 6:00 P.M. CAPTIONING MADE POSSIBLE BY CONSTELLATION ENERGY GROUP CAPTIONING PERFORMED BY THE NATIONAL CAPTIONING INSTITUTE, WHICH IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ITS CAPTION CONTENT AND ACCURACY.

Marine hospitalized after accidental on-base shooting

Lance Cpl. Dan Cary, 19, a Marine Security Forces Guard, is recovering after suffering a gunshot wound aboard Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga., on March 24. His mother described it as a “negligent discharge.” (Photo: Courtesy) The shooting of a Marine Corps Security Forces Guard aboard a naval base in Georgia last week remains under investigation, according to Marine officials.

Lance Cpl. Dan Cary, 19, of Gloucester, Massachusetts, was shot in the abdomen on March 24 while preparing for a security drill aboard Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Georgia. While Corps officials declined to detail the incident citing the ongoing investigation, the Marine’s mother, Josie Cary, said she was told it was caused by a “negligent discharge” of an M16 service rifle.

Dan Cary, who joined the Corps in 2013, was waiting for the security drill to start when a rifle went off and he was shot, Josie Cary said. She received news of the incident at about 8:45 p.m. that night.

Told her son had walked it off, she found the situation was more serious when she arrived at the University of Florida Health Shands Hospital in Jacksonville, where he was taken for treatment.

His stint would include time in the intensive care unit.
