Don’t play with a gun. That’s the lesson here, and there’s a couple of reasons. WTOK in Meridian reports that 20-year-old Mondrick Martin was treating a loaded gun like a toy Saturday afternoon, and one of the kids around told him he didn’t need to be doing that. Low and behold, the gun went off. Shot the kid in the leg. Turns out Martin is a convicted felon, not supposed to have the gun, so he was arrested. The kids is gonna be ok.

Waynesboro. A night of fun at the club Saturday, then gunshots. Shaurice Cunningham, 23, died at the hospital. Other people hurt and police could use a call if you know anything.

It was ID theft in DeKalb and Ashley Boren has been arrested. She was a bank teller and police say she used that info to steal IDs and then money. She may have had Christmas for her kids on your dime.
