Inmate shoots at officer on Vanderbilt campus

  Inmate shoots at officer on Vanderbilt campus A Robertson County inmate is dead after an officer-involved shooting at the Vanderbilt 100 Oaks campus, authorities said. According to Metro Nashville Police, two Robertson County sheriff's deputies were escorting a prisoner to the clinic when, during a confrontation, he grabbed a deputy's gun and fired. One deputy was critically injured and the other deputy returned fire, Metro Police said. “The inmate has been shot, and is now deceased," said Robertson County Sheriff's Office spokesman Ryan Martin. The shooting was reported at about 1:30 p.m. and occurred inside the building, which is a medical office complex near a shopping mall, according to Metro Police. There was no word on the severity of the injuries to the officer, according to Martin. "The officer is being treated and transported to a local hospital,” Martin said. Two ambulances arrived at the scene after the shooting and took two different people to two different hospitals. A lockdown was continuing as of 2:09 p.m., and police were clearing the building, according to a Vanderbilt security alert. Rory Foley, 44, of Nashville, was inside the building waiting for an appointment on the second floor when nurses asked her to “move, move, move.” Foley said she didn't hear any gunshots. “We heard all the nurses saying, 'you have to come in here,'” Foley said. “They locked us up in the room and made us stay there.

A man trying to evade a parole officer jumped from the eighth floor of a building in a Manhattan housing complex on Friday, sustaining only a broken ankle in the fall, the police said.

At around 3 p.m., the man, whose name was not immediately released, jumped from a window at the Lincoln Houses development on Park Avenue in Harlem, opposite the elevated Metro-North Railroad tracks. He fell onto a grassy patch set behind iron gates, and was handcuffed by police as he lay on the ground, according to witnesses who were at the complex on Friday.

They later learned he was unaware that his image was being used and was reinstated with the department. "DeAngelo came forward and owned up to making the video meant to spoof his buddy and fellow officer," Commissioner William Evans said. "He will undergo significant sensitivity and unconscious bias restraining.

“I guess he thought he could fly,” said a 60-year-old woman who provided only her given name, Dee. “He was on the ground and handcuffed, looking up.”

The man was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem, where he was in stable condition, the police said.

Jumping out of tall buildings to evade the police has been tried before, including once in the same Harlem complex more than a decade ago. A 21-year-old man, Tyrell Harris, jumped out a 14th-story window at the Lincoln Houses in 2005 after a gun battle with the police. He survived the impact, but died at St. Luke’s Hospital.

In 2007, several people broke out of New York City police precinct houses by jumping through windows. In at least two instances, people who had been brought in for questioning or were under arrest leapt from windows at station houses in Queens and Brooklyn. A third escapee that year — a man arrested on drug charges and being treated at Long Island College Hospital in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn — did not bother opening a window to make his getaway. He crashed through a plate-glass window and fled. He was captured two hours later.
