Facebook/OrangeCoSheriff(ORLANDO, Fla.) — Authorities in Florida are searching for clues to find the gunman who shot and killed a 15-year-old walking to school on Monday morning.Alejandro Vargas, a sophomore at Boone High School in Orlando, was shot around 6:30 a.m. while on his way to class, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office announced.Deputies responded to 911 calls from neighbors of shots fired and a man down, Orange County Sheriff John Mina told reporters Monday. First responders provided aid to Alejandro at the scene but he later died at a local hospital, Mina said.Alejandro regularly walked to school, but it is unclear if he was on his normal route when he was shot, Mina said, adding that investigators believe he was alone at the time.Some neighbors heard gunshots but no witnesses to the shooting have come forward, Mina said. A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest in Alejandro’s killing, according to the sheriff’s office.The Foundation for Orange County Public Schools described Alejandro as a “fine young man, with a great sense of humor and a love for life.”“Our community is broken and we want to help his family pick up the pieces of their lives in any way possible,” the school district said in a statement.Boone High School Principal Dusty Johns said Alejandro was “tragically killed on the way to school.” Grief counselors and additional law enforcement will be on campus to speak to students and staff this week, Johns said.“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family as they go through this extremely difficult time,” Johns said.The school is working with the OCPS Foundation to provide emergency funds to Alejandro’s family, who have created a separate GoFundMe campaign to help pay for funeral costs.Mina described “the death of a child” as “extremely tragic,” especially since it occurred during the holiday season.“And to have it one week before Christmas, I can’t imagine how the parents are feeling right now,” Mina said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe financial support represents an enormous swing for Help Feed the Frontline, which as of Friday morning had raised nearly $100,000 of a $3 million goal according to its GoFundMe page.Shannon Pruitt is one of the group’s founders: The campaign came together last weekend when a group of parents who knew an emergency room doctor heard that medical workers wanted a decent meal after long shifts in a stressful environment.Help Feed the Frontline has enlisted local restaurants, which have seen huge business slumps during the quarantine period, to create hygenic and temperature-specified meals for healthcare workers at Cedars-Sinai, Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles, Providence St. John’s, USC Medical Center, UCLA Santa Monica and UCLA Reagan. The food sourcing is partnered through Playa Provisions, and charity World Central Kitchen which feeds people in the midst of humanitarian crises is also offering support. Restaurants are partnered with specific hospitals to meet their needs.“These healthcare workers are working in wartime conditions, putting themselves at risk and putting their families at risk,” Pruitt said. “Keeping them safe and keeping them strong is so important.”Related Articles The Lakers vaulted to title contenders the moment they added Anthony Davis last summer – now a Los Angeles-based charitable effort to feed medical workers is looking for the same kind of infusion.Davis, the 27-year-old All-Star forward of the Lakers, has pledged up to $250,000 in matching donations for Help Feed the Frontline Fighting COVID-19, a grassroots campaign that seeks to feed 1,000 healthcare workers at six L.A.-based hospitals for at least the next 30 days.Davis is joined in the partnership by Lineage Logistics, the partners together hoping to contribute up to half a million dollars to the initiative, which has quickly gained steam and scope after a group of local parents started the effort last weekend. Davis’ partnership also includes a staffing drive: Lineage will fill 260 jobs by hiring Staples Center event employees who have been put out of work by the suspension of sporting events.“We all need to find ways to support our community during these challenging times,” Davis said in a statement. “Whether it’s the people we work with, the small businesses trying to stay afloat, or the healthcare workers putting themselves in harm’s way to treat the sick, we’ve got to give our support however we can.” How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Pruitt’s hope is that as the health care system strains under the load of coronavirus, eating well is one less thing staffers have to worry about.“What we’ve heard is nothing but positive response,” said Pruitt. “Delivering these meals, we know it’s buoying spirits from the feedback we get.”The Lakers, Clippers and Kings have already partnered with AEG, the company that runs Staples Center, to create a fund to help pay event workers throughout the quarantine.Other Lakers have made charitable contributions focused in their hometowns: LeBron James donated meals for 343 I Promise families on Tuesday and expects to deliver more meals this week in Akron, Ohio. Kyle Kuzma is running a program to feed seniors through the YMCA in his hometown of Flint, Mich.Lakers co-owner Jesse Buss also announced on Instagram that he was donating 13,000 masks to Saint John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica, as well as 3,500 meals to local children through the charity Hashtag Lunchbag. Pruitt said Help Feed the Frontline has quickly expanded as the group has learned about more and more need across the region. More contributions could help serve more workers in more hospitals, as well as put more restaurants to work.

Paris, France | AFP | Edinson Cavani struck twice as Paris Saint-Germain beat Strasbourg 5-2 on Saturday to relieve some of the pressure on the runaway Ligue 1 leaders following their Champions League defeat at Real Madrid.Strasbourg struck early through Jean Eudes Aholou, but PSG hit back courtesy of a Julian Draxler effort before two goals in as many minutes from Neymar and Angel Di Maria put the home side in control.Stephane Bahoken pulled one back midway through the second half as Strasbourg threatened an unlikely comeback, but Cavani’s league-best 22nd and 23rd goals of the season ensured victory for Unai Emery’s team. PSG responded quickly though as an intended pass through from Neymar was diverted straight into the path of Draxler who swept low into the far corner for his first league goal in over three months.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Captain Thiago Silva and Di Maria were recalled after Emery faced criticism for dropping them for the 3-1 loss in Madrid, and the coach was whistled by a section of home supporters unhappy with the Spaniard’s decisions in midweek. Neymar was largely overshadowed by Cristiano Ronaldo in Spain on Wednesday, but the Brazilian could have struck within 90 seconds at the Parc des Princes when he was denied the legs of Strasbourg goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja.The visitors, who inflicted PSG’s first defeat of the season in early December, sprang another surprise by grabbing the lead on six minutes following a clinical counter-attack.Neymar was guilty of overplaying and lost possession allowing Strasbourg to break with great effect, the move finishing off with Aholou steering home a precise first-time finish from Kenny Lala’s cross.
