The Latest News Headlines

  • A teenager is recovering after he was shot while walking in the Moncreif area on Tuesday night.  The 15-year-old told police he was walking on West 13th Street when a white Hyundai Sonata drove by with several people inside. Someone in the car then started shooting at the teen. Police were talking to witnesses on the scene, but were unable to provide any motive or a tag number of the car.     
  • WHBQ in Memphis, Tennessee, has uncovered new details in the Southaven, Mississippi, police shooting death of Ismael Lopez. Lopez was shot after police served a warrant at the wrong home. >> Watch the news report here A search warrant WHBQ obtained out of Tate County, Mississippi, showed the address on the warrant was across the street from Lopez’s home. Police came to the neighborhood for Samuel Pearman, who is wanted in Tate County and lived at 5878 Surry Lane. Deputies said an arrest warrant was issued for Pearman on a domestic aggravated assault charge after he allegedly choked a woman Sunday in front of her 4-year-old child at a Tate County gas station.  Neighbor Kimberly Shelby told WHBQ that Lopez’s death is on the hands of the Southaven Police Department after they served a warrant at the wrong home. 'You would think they would be over here trying to find him at the right address,” Shelby said. Shelby said police have been to Pearman’s home before.  >> Read more trending news 'I've called the police before ... so they have dealt with him before,” Shelby said. Lopez’s family said they have been advised by their lawyers to not make any more comments about the case on camera. Neighbors said they hope the law will hold the officers accountable for this deadly mistake.
  • The JSO officer shot in an exchange of gunfire which killed a man on the Westside was actually hit while pursuing the suspect, but continued to chase and help take him down. It’s the newest information coming from Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams, as they continue to investigate the incident. We first told you earlier Tuesday that police were called to the area of 103rd and Old Middleburg Road as part of their search for a man suspected in two bank robberies. Williams now confirms several tips from the community helped lead them to that area, which is where officers found 28-year-old Michael Joseph Harris. When JSO approached Harris, he got out of his car and in to a small silver vehicle that had a woman driving. Williams says JSO is still working to determine whether the woman was a willing participant in the chase that ensued, or another victim in this crime spree. The chase lasted around two miles, and JSO confirmed earlier Tuesday that it ended in some kind of incident involving a civilian car. Williams says their investigation has led them to believe the suspect vehicle ran a stop sign and was hit by a civilian vehicle who had the right of way. A person in that civilian vehicle was taken to the hospital for injuries resulting from the crash. Williams also now confirms that the officer who was shot in the chin-area was actually hit by shots fired during that vehicle pursuit. 11-year veteran K9 Officer Jeremy Mason is stable, but faces a long road back, according to Williams. Despite the injury, Williams says Mason continued to pursue the suspect, and was ultimately one of two members of JSO who fired on Harris when he got out of the vehicle and fired his gun again. “We talk a lot about these men and women here at JSO that put their lives on the line every single day. That’s not a tag line, that’s not a slogan,” Williams says. The other man who fired was 10-year veteran Detective Brad Hurst, who Williams says was working in the area on a sex offender notification case, but heard what was happening through their radio communication and joined in. Neither Mason nor Hurst have been involved in a police shooting previously, according to Williams. Williams says Harris is a three time convicted felon. In addition to those convictions, he is considered the suspect in a bank robbery earlier today and one that took place yesterday. Duval County court records show Harris pleaded guilty to a 2006 burglary and 2010 charges of burglary and dealing in stolen property. He was also found guilty on a 2008 charge of resisting an officer without violence. There are a few other minor arrests, according to Duval County Jail logs, including a probation violation.
  • The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office continues to investigate after a deadly officer-involved shooting on the Westside.   According to JSO, officers were patrolling the area looking for a bank robbery suspect responsible for two robberies in the last two days; one at Wells Fargo and the other at the Atlantic Coast Federal Credit Union.   Officers eventually spotted that suspect in the same vehicle used in those robberies.   For some reason, he got out of that vehicle and into another vehicle with a woman inside. When officers tried to stop that vehicle, the woman fled, and a short pursuit was initiated.   That pursuit lasted about two miles, with the lead officer reporting gunfire coming from the vehicle.   As the vehicles approached Buttercup and Old Middleburg Road, the pursuit ended. JSO is still piecing together whether the pursuit ended with a crash or with lawful intervention.   When officers tried to approach the suspect, he got out of the vehicle, and shooting ensued.   A K-9 officer was taken to the hospital with a bullet to the chin area. The suspect was also transported, but has died.   A civilian also had to be taken to the hospital from a crash, but police aren't sure if it's a result of the suspect striking them, or something officers did.   JSO describes the officer as in 'good spirits', but no exact condition has been released.   At this time, it's not clear what the women's connection is to the suspect or if she will face any charges. Police say she could have been forced to drive the vehicle during the pursuit, but detectives are working to interview her.   JSO plans to hold another briefing to update this shooting later Tuesday night.
  • The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a deadly, triple shooting on the Northside.   According to JSO, three black males, all in their 20’s, were shot near the Raceway on the 1000 block of Golfair Boulevard.   One of the men has died from his injuries, while the other two are in the hospital. Police describe one of the men’s injuries as life-threatening.   At this time, police there is no suspect information available.

Severe Weather and How We Report It

  • News 104.5 WOKV is committed to serving the NE Florida community with timely, accurate coverage when severe weather threatens.  To help better understand what our coverage sounds (and looks) like, here is an overview: What is that tone?   The severe weather alert tone, which sounds like, “ding-dong”, is activated when there is a warning in the five county area (Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, St. Johns).  We only activate the tone during a tornado or severe thunderstorm warning to alert listeners that there is potentially dangerous weather in the area.  The tone plays approximately every 90 seconds during programs and commercials (think of it like a crawl on your TV screen).  We recognize the tone can be distracting from normal programming, but we feel it is the best way to keep you aware of severe weather in the area without fully interrupting your favorite program.  Why are you interrupting Herman/Rush/Sean/Brian?  We take seriously and are committed to providing listeners with timely, accurate reports about severe weather so that they can take appropriate precautions to stay safe.  When a tornado or severe thunderstorm warning is issued in the NE Florida area (Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, St. Johns County) we intend to break in to programming to provide the warning details which include the current location of the storm, where it is moving, how fast it is moving, and the greatest threats it poses.  Our coverage includes updates from the First Alert Weather Team, led by Action News Jax Chief Meteorologist Mike.  We also recognize the impact storms have on the roads and highways in our area, so the WOKV Traffic Center is a big part of our severe weather coverage.  How can I report severe weather?  You frequently hear reporters and anchors ask for listeners to report what they are seeing. Those first-hand accounts can be valuable, both for the listening public, and also for the National Weather Service.  You can report severe weather in multiple ways:-Download the WOKV App (Free in the App or Google Play Store) and record an Open Mic.  Think of it like leaving a voice mail that we play back on the radio.  -Share photos on Twitter or Facebook @WOKVNews.  Use the #firstalertwx on Twitter.  -Email weather reports and photos to news@wokv.com. -During wall-to-wall severe weather updates, call in live reports to (904) 340-1045.
