Today, Wednesday, May 26, is what we call a busy news day at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Check out these reports:
One man was killed and another wounded in a shooting at an east Benbrook apartment complex Tuesday night.
Benbrook police were called out to the River Glen Apartments in the 3800 block of Levee Circle shortly before 11 p.m. on a report of shots fired. There, officers found Patrick Danley, 20, dead outside an apartment on a sidewalk. Fort Worth police a short time later found a wounded man nearby.
Police officials said it appears that both men had been shot at the apartment complex. They were still trying Wednesday to figure out what prompted the shooting.
A former Keene High School teacher faces four allegations of having sex three high school students, including sexual assault of a child.
Math teacher Michelle Reed Daniel, 40, was indicted in April by a Johnson County grand jury after being accused of having sexual relationships with the young men between January 2009 and October 2009.
Ricardo Beltran, 18, and Victor Ramos Jr., 20, were arrested Tuesday morning after they wrecked in a sport utility vehicle belonging to the victim, 33-year-old Sheldon McKnight.
Firefighters Tuesday morning responded to a fire in the 2600 block of Arroyo Avenue, said Senior Cpl. Kevin Janse, police spokesman. They found McKnight's body in the apartment after the fire was extinguished, Janse said.
The suspects reportedly knew McKnight, who was "cut and stabbed"when firefighters found him, Janse said.
A teenage girl in Garland, fearing she would be harmed, waited nearly five months to accuse a teaching assistant of raping her in January, according to a court document.
Dennis Connor, 27, of Garland, was being held Wednesday at Dallas County jail, charged with aggravated sexual assault of child. The girl told police that Connor, in January, removed the girl from class, took her to an office and allegedly raped her, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
The girl told police that Connor "threatened her with telling anyone what happened and that she was too scared to say anything until now," according to the affidavit.
A Fort Worth woman and man have been arrested on suspicion of manufacturing and passing out fake cash in Keller and Fort Worth, authorities said Wednesday.
Investigators have confiscated almost $1,500 in fake bills that were made on computers, scanners and printers -- but with no finesse.
“These were not quality bills,” said Keller police Sgt. John McGrew. “One other investigator looked at them and said we could do better with crayons.”
