Suspect who opened fire on NYPD officers identified as ‘dangerous’ Venezeulan teen

A teenage migrant gunman who shot a woman at a Times Square clothing store Thursday night before opening fire on police officers was taken into custody Friday afternoon following a brief manhunt. 

Details about the arrest of Jose Alejandro Rivas-Figureoa, 15, were not disclosed. 

At an earlier news conference, authorities said the teen was living in a temporary shelter after migrating from Venezuela. 

He entered the U.S. in September and was staying at the Stratford Arms Hotel, which houses migrants, said NYPD Chief of Patrol John Chell.

Rivas-Figureoa was part of a trio — two 15-year-olds and a 16-year-old — that entered a JD Sports store on West 42nd Street and Broadway and grabbed some clothes before attempting to leave. A security guard confronted them and recovered the merchandise, Chell said.

“At this time our suspect takes out a .45 caliber handgun… shoots at her into a crowd,” Chell said. 

Rivas-Figureoa missed his intended target and a 37-year-old woman visiting from Brazil was struck in the leg by gunfire, police said. Two of the teens fled the location and one of the 15-year-old’s was arrested by responding officers. 

Another officer chased Rivas-Figureoa.

“You saw the video. He turns once, fires towards our officer,” Chell told reporters. “Our officer takes his gun out. He cannot return fire. There’s too many people in his way.”

As the foot chase continued, the shooter fired again at the officer and fled into a subway station and onto the tracks before coming up to the street, authorities said. 

The 16-year-old was arrested Friday morning. Investigators are still trying to determine the arrested suspects’ alleged roles in Thursday’s shooting.

During his briefing, Chell praised the actions of the police officer who was fired upon.

“Our cop showed great restraint not to fire their weapon into a crowd of New Yorkers,” he said. “His training dictates you have to be prudent when you’re going to fire your weapon.”

“We’re the most restrained police department in the world and we proved it last night,” Chell added.  

In addition to Thursday’s shooting, Rivas-Figureoa is suspected in an armed robbery in the Bronx and a shots-fired incident in Midtown Manhattan, Chell said. 

The shooting came nearly two weeks after a group of migrants attacked a pair of NYPD officers, also in Times Square. Several suspects in that case have been indicted, but only one is being held in custody.

He noted that some Venezuelans have posed a public safety risk as the city continues to struggle with an influx of migrants. 

“We saw the moped robberies and snatches. We see pockets being picked in Times Square and on the subway. We see some groups going into stores… and stealing property,” he said.

Jill Biden confronted president and aides after long press conference in 2022: report

First lady Jill Biden was reportedly so upset by a lengthy 2022 press conference by President Biden that she berated him and his aides afterward, demanding to know why no one put an end to it.

“Where were you guys? she asked the aides, according to a new book. “Where was the person who was going to end the press conference?”

In the forthcoming book about modern first ladies titled “American Woman,” author Katie Rogers wrote that Jill Biden confronted President Biden himself and his aides after the Jan. 19, 2022, news conference, which marked his first year in office. During the nearly two-hour conference, Biden held forth on numerous topics but at times bungled facts and lashed out at one reporter who quoted Biden’s comments comparing political opponents to segregationists. 

“She had watched the news conference, and the look on her face told everyone in the room — from the president on down — that they had some explaining to do,” Rogers wrote in the excerpt reported by Axios. “‘Why didn’t anyone stop that?’ she demanded.”

BIDEN BLISTERED BY MAINSTREAM MEDIA AFTER ‘DISASTER’ PRESS CONFERENCE: ‘ELDERLY, IRRITABLE MAN’

According to Rogers’ account, her reaction cowered even her husband into silence.

“Everyone stayed silent, looking at one another, and then at her, and back to one another. That included the most powerful man in the world. Her husband essentially played along, not offering an answer, even though aides had slipped him a card suggesting he end the press conference,” Rogers wrote.

Rogers added in her own report for The New York Times that officials “later apologized to her, according to an account of the episode shared by a person in the room.”

The book portrays Jill Biden as her husband’s “fiercest protector,” suggesting she wants to help shield him from difficult situations. It added that she knows “how much the job is draining him” as he brings briefing books back to the residence every evening.

The reports on the book comes on the heels of the most difficult public moment yet for a White House that’s been on the defensive about the president’s advanced age. Biden gave a rare nationally televised primetime speech and press conference Thursday night in response to alleged significant memory lapses during his interview for a special counsel report about his handling of classified documents.

Special counsel Robert Hur described Biden in the report as a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” Hur, throughout the more than 300-page report, said “it would be difficult to convince a jury that they should convict him” of a serious felony “that requires a mental state of willfulness,” and said Biden would be “well into his eighties.” 

CRITICS RAIL AGAINST BIDEN FOR MISSING SUPER BOWL INTERVIEW TWO YEARS IN A ROW: ‘WHY THE HELL NOT?’

The report didn’t recommend charges for mishandling classified documents, and Biden’s supporters have contrasted his situation and cooperation in the case with the criminal charges former President Trump faces in his own classified documents case.

A defiant Biden said Thursday his memory was “fine,” snapped that a question about his son Beau’s death was none of anyone’s “damn business,” and said he was the most qualified person for the presidency.

At one point, Biden took a shot at Fox News reporter Peter Doocy for quoting from the report and asking if he could continue to serve.

“How bad is your memory? And can you continue as president?” Doocy asked. 

“My memory is so bad I let you speak,” Biden replied. 

Biden has been historically reticent to do one-on-one interviews during his presidency, and he also made headlines by declining the traditional Super Bowl Sunday network interview for the second straight year.

“It’s a chance to have an interview before a massive audience, it’s not likely to be the toughest interview in the world. Why not do it? Why not take the opportunity to talk to a really large section of the country?” one former White House correspondent told Fox News Digital. 

The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Travis Kelce admits Chiefs’ Super Bowl practice ‘got a little bit chippy’

When 53 people are coming together for one common goal, emotions can run high.

Apparently, that’s exactly what happened at one of the Kansas City Chiefs‘ practices in Las Vegas.

The Chiefs are one win away from becoming the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls since the New England Patriots did so in the 2003 and 2004 seasons.

Many counted the Chiefs out after their subpar (by their standards) regular season, but it’s apparent that they know how to turn it on in the postseason.

The team knocked off the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens en route to Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, but now, the offense and defense are trying too hard to beat one another in practice, says Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

“I’m not going to lie, and I’m not going to say who, but things got a little bit chippy in practice,” he told the media Thursday, via the New York Post.

Kelce said it’s a result of everybody being “focused and dialed in on their job at hand,” adding that it’s been “chaos, a lot of fun and a lot of energy at practice.”

CHIEFS OWNER, PATRICK MAHOMES’ MOM SAY TAYLOR SWIFT HAS BROUGHT IN WHOLE NEW AUDIENCE TO NFL

And despite pleasantries being exchanged at practice, Kelce directed it to the passion the entire roster has.

“The offensive and defensive lines are trying to get their work in, trying to make sure everybody’s ready for the game. It just got me fired up. I love the focus and energy of the team right now,” he continued.

The Chiefs are looking to officially become a dynasty by winning their third Super Bowl in five seasons.

“I think it’s been thrown around a lot,” Kelce said, via WFAN. “And obviously, it being our third in five years, I think the number three is a big number in terms of dynasties and things like that. Hopefully, we can get this thing, and you guys can start talking about dynasties. I’m trying to get this third ring, though.”

‘Woke-free’ beer CEO reacts to Trump defending Bud Light after marketing disaster

FIRST ON FOX: A conservative CEO says that Republican beer drinkers want a beverage that “truly supports their values” after former President Donald Trump defended rival brand Bud Light.

In 2023, Bud Light launched a controversial partnership with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney that sparked an immediate, months-long boycott from the beer-drinking community.

Trump, however, tried to soothe things over with the beer brand earlier this week by saying that Bud Light’s parent company Anheuser-Busch “is not a woke company” and that the brand “perhaps deserves a second chance.”

The former president wrote that the partnership with Mulvaney was a “mistake of epic proportions,” but that conservatives should reconsider their boycott of the Anheuser-Busch brand.

TRUMP RUSHED TO BUD LIGHT’S DEFENSE AS ANHEUSER-BUSCH LOBBYIST SLATED TO HOST FUNDRAISER FOR HIM

“And for that a very big price was paid, but Anheuser-Busch is not a Woke company, but I can give you plenty that are,” Trump posted on Truth Social.  “Anheuser-Busch is a Great American Brand that perhaps deserves a Second Chance?”

ANTI-WOKE BEER COMPANY TEAMS UP WITH RILEY GAINES TO LAUNCH ‘REAL WOMEN OF AMERICA’ CALENDAR

Ultra Right CEO Seth Weathers, who launched the highly successful Conservative Dad’s Ultra Right beer as a rival to the Anheuser-Busch brand in the aftermath of the boycott, is still optimistic about his brand despite Trump’s social media post.

“Conservatives want options for companies that truly support their values,” Weathers told FOX Business. “Conservative Dad’s Ultra Right Beer will proudly continue to be that option!”

Ultra Right has openly supported Trump throughout his campaign, launching a limited edition beer can that featured the former president’s mugshot and donating ten percent of sales generated from sales to the Georgia Republican Party and the David Shafer Legal Defense Fund “to defend Georgia’s Trump electors against unjust political prosecution.”

Ultra Right also teamed up with Riley Gaines, a women’s sports activist, and raised thousands of dollars for her center to protect women’s sports. The campaign involved selling “Real Women of America” 2024 Calendar, an endeavor the group previously told FOX Business was the first calendar created to “specifically showcase the most beautiful conservative women in America.”

Last summer, FOX Business obtained a press release that revealed Ultra Right signed new distribution deals in multiple states to appear in thousands of retailers, bars and restaurants.

“First, they mocked us. They said we’d never sell any beer, they said we’d never get the beer made, they said we would never get distributors, and then they said we’d never get shelf space in stores,” Weathers said at the time. “I’m proud to say, we’ve accomplished all those things in a matter of months.”

Liberal pundits explode over scathing Biden report: ‘Binary choice between evil and good’

“The View” co-hosts vehemently disagreed on whether President Biden was mentally fit for office on Friday, following his explosive press conference with reporters on Thursday responding to Special Counsel Robert Hur’s damning report.

Biden lashed out at reporters questioning his mental acuity following a defiant address to the nation about the report, which called Biden a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” Shortly after insisting that his memory was “fine,” Biden proceeded to refer to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi as the “president of Mexico.”

Several media outlets rated the conference a “disaster” for the president politically. However, “The View” co-hosts were divided on the issue. Co-hosts Joy Behar and Ana Navarro forcefully defended Biden while Sunny Hostin and Alyssa Farah Griffin were troubled by the president’s performance.

“I think it’s significant,” Hostin remarked. She recounted the incidents detailing Biden’s forgetfulness from the special report before saying the presser would fuel speculation about his mental acuity.

However, Behar disagreed. “He answered those questions quite clearly, as far as I can tell,” she said, claiming Biden’s still “got it.”

Farah Griffin said the damning report and presser “did not inspire confidence.”

“This is not even the Joe Biden of four years ago. This is not Barack Obama. And I think Democrats have to wake up to the fact that especially young people are watching and they’re seeing one of the weakest presidents of my lifetime,” she argued. 

Comparing Biden to Donald Trump, she called it “a shame these are the only two options for Americans.”

Navarro downplayed Biden’s apparent memory lapses, saying, “We all make gaffes.”

BIDEN BLISTERED BY MAINSTREAM MEDIA AFTER ‘DISASTER’ PRESS CONFERENCE: ‘ELDERLY, IRRITABLE MAN’

“The difference is that he is under this level of scrutiny that whenever he makes a gaffe like this it becomes national news,” she continued.

“You get panicky over Joe Biden making a gaffe, but Republicans don’t care. They don’t care that Donald Trump says stupid things every single day!” Navarro complained.

Behar summed up the difference between the two candidates being a “fascist government versus some memory lapses.”

After Farah Griffin worried Democrats were risking losing the election to Trump by keeping Biden as the nominee, Navarro called the election a choice between “evil and good.”

BIDEN TORCHED FOR CLAIMING THAT HE RECENTLY MET WITH DEAD FORMER PRESIDENT OF FRANCE: ‘NOT A HEALTHY SIGN’

“I don’t know how many times I have to say this,” she said. “This is a binary choice. Between evil and good. Between moral and immoral. Between an effective president an ineffective president. Between a — fine man and an egotistical narcissist!” 

“Like the Super Bowl, where one wins or the other,” she continued.

‘Hot in Cleveland’ star lashes out at ‘diet culture’ after sharing ‘overweight’ bikini pic

Valerie Bertinelli revealed this week that she no longer weighs herself. 

The 63-year-old actress shared two photos of herself in a bikini in a Throwback Thursday Instagram post, writing, “This is a 150lb body on a 5’4 frame. I don’t weigh myself anymore because this is considered overweight by whose standards I don’t know.”

She added that the standards are “stupid and I believed them for far too long. I now, finally, know that I am a kind, considerate, funny, thoughtful woman. So please remember, who you are and what your character is, should never be overshadowed by what size you are or how much you weigh. You are enough. Just the way you are. F— ‘em.” 

VALERIE BERTINELLI, JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT FIGHT BACK AGAINST CRITICS: ‘THIS IS ME WITH NO MAKEUP’

The “Kids Baking Championship” star revealed in a post last month, in which she shared a “snack of the day,” that she does not “like diet culture” and is more focused on making sure she gets enough protein, carbs, fat and fiber. “So I’m just trying to keep an eye on those things without making myself crazy,” she said.

Bertinelli is also an avid exerciser and shared a post of herself doing Pilates in December, saying she always feels better after a workout. 

In a “vulnerable” post in October, Bertinelli filmed herself in her closet, saying she had “found the clothes I was wearing in the very first ‘before’ picture for Jenny Craig.”

“I have done so much emotional and mental work to overcome years of pretending everything was OK when it wasn’t,” Bertinelli said. “Health is not a body size. Health is not the number you see on the scale. Your worth as a human being isn’t dictated by your body. It’s not defined by your body.”

She continued, “I thought I was fat the last time I wore these clothes.”

“I’ve never felt more beautiful, more at peace, more mentally and emotionally stable than I do today, and I’m wearing my ‘fat’ clothes. That’s f—ed up,” she scoffed. 

Last summer, Bertinelli revealed that she had gone down a size earlier in the year after doing Dry January, a tradition in which people start the new year off without drinking alcohol for a month.

“Back in November, I really started concentrating on my emotional and mental health. The harsh words and abuse can never be unheard and taken back, but here’s the thing, I wouldn’t have taken them in and believed them in the first place, if I hadn’t been saying harsh and unkind words to myself first,” she wrote, referencing her divorce from Tom Vitale.

She continued, “Through therapy, journaling, meditation, and slew of things you’ve watched me talk about on my feed the past year, I started to care about myself more and care how I treated myself more which led me to also care about the nutrition I put into my body. Caring not so much about calories but what are in those calories? Am I getting enough fiber? Am I getting enough protein? Am I getting enough vitamins, naturally, in my food? Am I drinking too much? What makes me feel better. What makes my body feel better?”

“Keyword, FEEL better,” Bertinelli stressed. She also explained, “I have cut back exponentially on alcohol and I’m sure that has helped with releasing the weight I was carrying for protection. And it did protect me. I’m grateful for that.”

Bahamas resort says sexual assault survivors’ allegations ‘conflict’ with security footage

A Bahamian resort has said two American women’s allegations of drug-laced cocktails and sexual assaults “conflict” with its 16 “time-stamped surveillance videos.”

Amber Shearer and Dongayla Dobson, lifelong friends from Kentucky, were enjoying a kid-free vacation when they stopped on Grand Bahama Island during a Carnival cruise. 

They said they felt woozy after a couple of sips of their drinks, lost consciousness and were sexually assaulted by resort employees, according to news outlets and their own posts on social media. They tested positive for high levels of drugs.

The resort, Pirate’s Cove in Freeport, Bahamas, said in a statement the “lengthy videos of all concerned” were handed over to local police. The FBI is also part of the investigation. 

KENTUCKY MOMS SURVIVE BAHAMAS DRUGGING, SEXUAL ASSAULTS AFTER CRUISE STOPS AT RESORT: REPORT

The resort did not immediately return Fox News Digital’s request for more information or answer follow-up questions about what resort officials saw on their cameras that “conflict” with the women’s allegations. 

“We regret that our guests experienced this incident, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to aid police in the collection of evidence in response to these allegations, including providing police access to video where the assault of the two guests allegedly occurred,” the resort said in its statement. 

WARNING FOR CRUISE PASSENGERS AS SEXUAL ASSAULTS HIT NEW HIGH IN 2023: FBI

The Freeport resort said it called law enforcement and medical personnel and took “swift” action by firing the two resort employees for violating resort policy.

“We have a zero-tolerance policy for fraternizing with guests or behaving in a manner that is unsafe,” the resort’s statement says. 

“While there is an active police investigation into these serious allegations, we have terminated the employment of the two accused, as the behavior seen on tape by management indicates that, at a minimum, they violated our zero-tolerance policy.”

“Local authorities and paramedics were called to the scene and Pirates Cove management assisted in identifying and locating the two alleged suspects,” the Freeport resort’s statement goes on to say. “In addition, after the police concluded their initial investigation, we assisted in transporting the women back to their cruise ship after guests refused transportation to the hospital.”

The women have not responded to Fox News Digital’s request for comment. The FBI confirmed their involvement, but said the Royal Bahamas Police Force is the lead agency. 

“Through the FBI’s Legal Attaché office in Nassau, we have strong, established relationships and stand ready to assist in any way the Bahamian government may request,” the FBI said in an emailed statement. “We refer you to Royal Bahamas Police Force, which is leading the investigation, for any comment on this matter.”

EXCLUSIVE: MILITARY VET ‘CRAZY ED’ TAKES DOWN WOULD-BE THIEF ON VIDEO DAYS AFTER SAVING MAN’S LIFE

The Royal Bahama Police Force said in a Feb. 4 statement that they arrested two men – ages 54 and 40 – in connection with the alleged sexual assault. Their names were not released. 

In a follow-up statement, the Royal Bahama Police Force told the Nassau Guardian that the women declined medical assistance and signed a waiver before leaving for their cruise ship “in a private vehicle.”

“Recognizing the gravity of the incident, our officers boarded the cruise ship, providing a sexual assault kit and hospital form to the ship’s medical doctor and obtained signed statements from the victims,” the statement says. 

“Preliminary reports suggest the incident occurred shortly after noon at a central Grand Bahama beach. Upon learning of the incident, our officers immediately commenced investigations, leading to the arrest of two adult males, aged 54 and 40.”

Carnival Cruise Line said the two guests aboard the Carnival Elation reported the sexual assault that occurred on “an independent shore excursion,” according to the New York Post

“Our onboard Care Team provided support for the two guests as they sailed back to Jacksonville,” the cruise company said.

War of words and 70% of Bahamian economy at stake

As the resort fights the women’s allegations with its own statement, the United States Department of State and the Bahamian government exchanged cutting barbs over the department’s level-two travel advisory warning because of rising levels of crime.

“The majority of crime occurs on New Providence (Nassau) and Grand Bahama (Freeport) islands,” according to the State Department’s late January warning, which mentioned spikes in violent crimes like armed robberies and sexual assaults because of gang activity. 

Bahamian Prime Minister Philip Davis came out swinging by saying many tourism locations share the same level two designation. 

“The incidents described in the January 2024 US Embassy crime alert do not reflect general safety in The Bahamas, a count of sixteen tourist destinations, and many more islands,” Davis said on Jan. 29, five days after the U.S. warning. 

He said the Bahamian government “is alert, attentive and proactive to ensure that The Bahamas remains a safe and welcoming destination.”

Nearly the entire Bahamian economy is at stake when it comes to tourism, which accounts for approximately 70% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product and employs just over half of the workforce, according to an October 2022 report by the International Trade Administration

The Bahamas was on track to welcome over 7 million American tourists by the end of 2023, according to the state department’s most recent Investment Climate Statement, which was released in 2023. 

Jets owner Woody Johnson takes brutal shot at his own quarterback Zach Wilson

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson is putting his team on notice.

In the lead-up to Thursday night’s NFL Honors award ceremony, Johnson ripped into the team’s offense and took a not-so-thinly veiled jab at quarterback Zach Wilson when discussing the disappointing season. 

“The discussions I’ve had in the last couple of months, they’ve seen me about as mad as I can be with what was going on, with the offense particularly,” Johnson reportedly said, via ESPN.

“We have all this talent, and we have to deploy talent properly. So I think they all got the message. This is it. This is the time to go. We’ve got to produce this year.”

According to the report, when asked specifically by reporters about the team’s need for a backup, Johnson agreed. 

“You need a backup quarterback,” he said. “We didn’t have one last year.”

49ERS’ QB SAM DARNOLD SAYS HE ‘ALWAYS ENVISIONED’ A SUPER BOWL TRIP WITH JETS

Wilson, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, has faced mounting criticism throughout his NFL career. After another disastrous season, the Jets moved forward last year to acquire four-time league MVP Aaron Rodgers in an offseason trade with the Green Bay Packers.

With that, the Jets moved from trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2010 to talking about Super Bowl aspirations. But just four plays into Rodgers’ debut, he suffered a season-ending leg injury, and the Jets were back at square one. 

Johnson’s remarks can be seen as an indication of his view of Wilson’s status on the team. 

“We’ve got to fix our offense,” Johnson told ESPN separately. “I think we’ll do that – Aaron Rodgers will be back, and we’ll protect him, and we’ll get the flow and get into it.”

Johnson also addressed his confidence level in head coach Robert Saleh, telling the outlet, “He’s going to be a lot better coach.”

“It’s offense, offense, offense – as I’ve said.” 

The Jets finished the season 7-10, missing yet another postseason run. They now hold the record for the longest active playoff drought in the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB.
