Deputy Eric Overall, 50, died when he was “deliberately ran down” after putting down “stop sticks” to slow down the suspect’s vehicle, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department said.

Overall was outside of his patrol car at approximately 12:31 a.m. the suspect saw him him, deputies said. The suspect's vehicle then rolled over, the Free Press reported.

The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide, and said Overall died of blunt force trauma, CNN reported.

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said Overall “had a great career here and touched a lot of lives.”

“Deputy Overall was not in the roadway at the time, and in fact was well off the roadway, and he had just deployed the ‘stop sticks.’ It is our belief ... from all evidence collected that the suspect deliberately ran down Deputy Overall, swerving to hit him,” according to a statement from the Oakland County sheriff's office.

The suspect is from Macomb Township and is now in the Macomb County Jail. CNN reported. The Oakland County Sheriff's Office's Special Investigations Unit will present a warrant request to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office on Saturday, the statement said.

Overall was recently married and has an adult son. A GoFundMe account was set up to help Overall’s family, and the goal of $30,000 was met by late Thursday.

Cumming family delivers warm clothes and goods to Atlanta's homeless

A local family's effort to help the less fortunate during Thanksgiving is growing so large, they needed two trailers to deliver it.

Ron Mowen's family started handing out goods for the homeless five years ago after they realized there was a problem in downtown Atlanta. Since then, it's become a family affair to help others.

Hundreds of homeless men and women, even some with children, congregated at Pryor and Memorial to get items for personal comfort this Thanksgiving.  

TRENDING STORIES:

“The ground gets cold, so at night you kinda need something,” said Nate Akers, who’s been homeless for 10 years and lives under a highway bridge nearby. He came out to grab some clothes for both him and the other people who camp out beside him. 

“I’m receiving a blessing,” he told Channel 2's Nefertiti Jaquez.

He isn’t the only person who feels like they received a blessing this holiday.

Cherry Hall, who’s a Lyft driver and has been homeless on and off since 2005, was also grateful. 

"It makes you smile and feel better. I think they’re great, God-loving people,” she said. 

Mowen's family recruited their closest friends to help them help others with two trailers full of goods.

“Anything we can do to make them feel comfortable. The folks out here just need a little help,” he said. “We do a lot of blankets, sleeping bags, coats, clothing, thermal underwear.” 

They spent the day dedicated to sharing time with family, helping those who are less fortunate. In the process, their hope is that their young children learn a lesson in giving back.

"I want to install values in my children in hopes that they realize not everybody has it as well off as they do," he said.

The family told Jaquez they want to come back and host the same event for Christmas but need your help. If you'd like to donate to help them raise money for supplies, click here.

Thieves steal woman's dog's surgery money; friends raise nearly 20K

A week ago, Melissa Horstman's Worcester, Massachusetts, home was invaded by burglars who smashed the glass on her sliding door and took nearly $3,000 in valuables and cash.

Shortly after 9 p.m. last Thursday night, the thieves broke into her home and not only stole the money Horstman was saving for her dog's operation but left her sick pup Prince in a heap of glass.

Foreboding as he may look, Prince has bone cancer on his back leg and can barely move. Not only is Prince on heavy painkillers, but his leg will need to be amputated, and Horstman believes his condition is worsening.

"I'm just lucky they didn't kill my dog," Horstman said. 

Horstman says that after Boston 25 News interviewed her last Monday, one of her friends created an online fundraising page for Prince with the goal of raising $5,000 - the amount needed for his surgery.

However, to her surprise, the overwhelming generosity of those who contributed to the fundraiser help not only reach the goal but exceed far past just $5,000 .

"It is very close to $20,000 right now," Horstman said.

Initially, when Horstman posted about the burglary on Facebook, her mind was set on trying to catch those responsible for the theft.

She says she didn't ask for a dime, but is immensely thankful for those who helped. Prince will have surgery Tuesday and hopefully feel a lot better.

As for the rest of the money, Horstman plans on giving it to other pet owners who need it just as much as she did.

"I've decided to make some donations to Broken Tail Rescue that are here local in Worcester and possibly another rescue depending on how much is left over from Prince's surgery," Horstman said.

After our initial story on the burglary aired, Horstman said police told her this may be related to other recent burglaries. She is anxiously awaiting word of an arrest.

Horstman is urging people who want to help to give back to local animal shelters. She has since asked her friend to shut down the fundraising page. 

Police: 86-year-old woman with gun tried to rob bank

An 86-year-old Philadelphia woman allegedly pushed her walker into a bank Tuesday afternoon and attempted to rob it.

Bank employees told police the woman, identified as Emily Coakley, brandished a gun and demanded $400, CBS Philly reported.

It didn’t take long for the police to arrive, and they arrested the senior citizen. Authorities say the woman had a .38-caliber revolver.

They said the gun was not loaded, but, she did have bullets in her purse, according to The Morning Call.

University of Pennsylvania police responded to a robbery call at the TD Bank at 3735 Walnut St. around 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Coakley has been charged with aggravated assault, robbery and other related offenses.

According to witnesses, Coakley had visited the bank the day earlier and was under the impression she had been shorted $400 from her withdrawal that was the specific total she demanded from the teller. Her family later arrived and tried to defuse the situation.

Despite this, people near the bank weren’t happy.

“Someone could have got shot, even accidentally. You have to have concerns. People bring their kids here,” customer Will Duggan told Fox 29 in Philadelphia.

The Morning Call said she did not offer comment as police escorted her from the bank.
