According to People, A South Carolina man fatally shot his 23-year-old daughter before injuring his wife and then killing himself. According to the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, Arthur Brannon locked himself and his daughter, MiAysha Brannon, in their Boiling Springs home on Sunday morning. Responding deputies arrived at the home around 6:30 a.m. to find Laquanda Brannon — Brannon’s wife and MiAysha’s mother — outside, suffering from a gunshot wound to her right arm. She said she had been in a verbal fight with her husband, who then opened fire on her and locked her out of the home. Laquanda Brannon was transported to the hospital, where she continues to receive treatment. Hostage negotiators were summoned to the scene to speak with Arthur Brannon. After failing to make contact with him, a SWAT team was sent in, where the father and daughter were found dead. PEOPLE confirms that MiAysha was a junior at Fort Valley State University in Georgia, where she was studying to become a veterinary technician. The school issued a statement on her death, saying she had a promising future ahead of her. “The death of MiAysha Brannon is devastating news,” said the university’s president, Paul Jones. “She was a cherished member of our Wildcat family. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this very sad time.” A GoFundMe campaign has been established online to help Laquanda in the wake of Sunday’s violence.
According to the Daily Mail, Kim Potter has been found guilty of first
and second degree manslaughter in the shooting death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright. The decision came after close to 28 hours of
deliberations during which jurors had, at times, seemed hopelessly
deadlocked. The jurors, six men and six women – 9 white, 2 Asian and one black – alerted the judge that they had reached their verdict shortly before noon on Thursday, the fourth day of deliberations. It marks the sensational conclusion to a trial during which the jury heard eight days of testimony.
According to Mail Online, After nearly a decade of marriage, Meagan Good and her husband DeVon Franklin are reportedly ending their marriage. Franklin filed for divorce in Los Angeles on Monday at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse, according to The Blast. The actress, 40, and the motivational speaker, 43, tied the knot in 2012. The cause of the dissolution of the marriage is unclear, but in a joint statement the couple said: “After much prayer and consideration, we have decided to go into our futures separately but forever connected. We celebrate almost a decade of marriage together and a love that is eternal. There’s no one at fault, we believe this is the next best chapter in the evolution of our love. We are incredibly grateful for the life-changing years we’ve spent together as husband and wife. We are also extremely thankful to God for the testimony being created inside us both and for blessing our lives with each other.” Just weeks ago the Live Free author took to Instagram in support of his wife’s new Amazon Prime series Harlem. He shared a trailer from the show with his 1.5 million followers on the photo-sharing app. Gushing about Good he wrote in the caption, ‘I’m so proud of my love @Meagangood! She’s one of the most talented actors on the planet AND she’s funnier than you may know but I’m so glad you finally get a chance to see her do it all as Camille Parks in the new Amazon show #Harlem!!’ The couple was famously outspoken about their celibacy journey before getting married nine years ago. They co-authored a book called “The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love”.

In closing, remember, God loves you. He always has and He always will. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” If you don’t know Jesus as your Saviour, today is a good day to get to know Him. Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died, was buried, and rose from the dead for you. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart and He will. Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
