  • CHARGED WITH MURDER: Vickie Arriaga
Cecil Massey, 51, was found with a fatal gunshot wound outside his house at 2620 Longcoy Street about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, police report. His sister, Vickie Arriaga, 52, who also lives at the house, was charged with first-degree murder.

The report said officers found Massey with a wound in his back when they answered a call to an assault. A neighbor said Arriaga had earlier knocked on their door and asked for assistance in getting Massey out of the house. The neighbor said Arriaga was hitting herself in the head to make it appear Massey had been abusing her. After the neighbor called police, he saw Massey stagger out of his house. Massey said something the neighbor couldn't understand then fell to the ground, where officers found him.

Officers shouted for Arriaga to leave the house and she did, surrendering without incident

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
