WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. – Charges have been filed against Arthur Disanto, 41, of Delaware County, PA, in an August 23rd incident in Gloucester County in which Disanto allegedly exchanged gunfire with police, wounding a police officer, according to Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer.
Disanto was also wounded during the incident. The police-involved shooting remains under investigation by the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.
Disanto was wanted for allegedly shooting a woman in Media, PA in July. On August 23rd, he evaded capture by police in Folcroft, PA and fled to Deptford Township in Gloucester County, NJ.
Members of several Gloucester County Police Departments responded at approximately 7:30 p.m. to a 911 call from a resident reporting a suspicious vehicle parked outside of his residence. Police later located Disanto in a wooded area behind Cape Cod Drive in Washington Township, NJ.
Disanto fled to Barnsboro Road, where he and an officer with the Monroe Township Police Department exchanged gunfire. The officer was shot in the hand and ear.
Disanto then allegedly fired at an officer with the Deptford Township Police Department.
Disanto was shot and wounded in the exchange of gunfire as well. He was transported to Cooper Medical Center, where he remains in critical but stable condition. His revolver was recovered.
The Monroe Township officer who was shot was treated and released from the hospital.
WPVI reported: According to an arrest affidavit obtained by Action News, the woman told police that Disanto had been staying with her for a few nights, and they were fighting over money and the death of a friend. During the altercation, the woman stated that Disanto became angry and punched her in the face, tasered her and then shot her while in a bedroom, the document stated. The woman sustained a gunshot wound to the hip but survived her injuries.
Disanto was on a motorcycle on the night of August 23 when Pennsylvania troopers tried to stop him in Marple Township. A plainclothes officer in an unmarked police sport utility vehicle later spotted him in Folcroft, but officials said he reached for a gun and then got in the SUV and drove off as the officer retreated behind the vehicle. The officer shot out windows of the fleeing SUV.
A second person was arrested on Tuesday in connection to the death of a 5-year-old Dallas boy.
On Monday, 5-year-old Zamaurian Kizzee was found dead in his home located in the 2800 block of Silkwood Street. The little boy showed signs of prolonged physical abuse.
Hours after Dallas police discovered the boy dead, his mother, Tiffany Williams, 26, was arrested and charged with Injury to a Child/Serious Bodily Injury.
Williams admitted to hitting her son with a closed fist the day of his death. She also admitted that he was physically abused daily.
The following day, 74-year-old Ulysses Kizzee was also arrested. He is charged with Injury to a Child/Serious Bodily Injury by Omission, a first-degree felony.
The Dallas Police Department has not confirmed exactly how Kizzee is related to the little boy. However, a domestic disturbance incident filed with DPD earlier this year disclosed that Ulysses Kizzee and Tiffany Williams have been in a relationship for 9 years.
A 3-month-old, 1-year-old, 3-year-old, 6-year-old, and 7-year-old, have been removed from the home. Child Protective Services say there is a history with the family.
R & B singer R. Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison Wednesday for racketeering and sex trafficking.
U.S. District Court Judge Ann Donnelly handed down the sentence after long deliberation and testimony from several of Kelly’s victims.
Robert Sylvester Kelly’s attorneys argued that he should only get 10 years in prison but the federal prosecutors recommended he be sentenced to more than 25 years.
During the trial several victims came together and spoke out about the sexual abuse and pain they endured throughout the years.
One victim who was identified as Jane Doe said Kelly made her perform sexual acts.
Attorneys also brought up the late Aaliyah and how R. Kelli married her while she was 15.
“I felt special, because someone who was special to the world was interested in me,” she said, adding, “I hope you go to jail for the rest of your life.”
As judge Donnelly handed down the singers sentencing the victims stood together, held hands and prayed. The judge also put in consideration Kelly’s childhood involving sexual assault, poverty and violence.
Back in 2019 Kelly was arrested and accused of leading an organization where he would recruit underage women and subject them to sex crimes.
Kelly was charged with bribery, kidnapping, forced labor, sexual exploitation of a child, sexual trafficking across state lines and racketeering involving six victims. He was also accused of breaking the Mann Act, which makes it illegal to take anyone across state lines “for any immoral purpose“.
During testimony Kelly listened to all his accusers and did not take the stand during his trial.
