Hilo Beach Park Stabbing Suspect Claims Self-Defense

Big Island Now - ‎56 minutes ago‎
The attorney for the man accused of attempted murder in Saturday's stabbing incident at a Hilo beach park today said his client was acting in self-defense.According to arrest affidavits filed with the court, Gibson on Saturday stabbed 41-year-old David Coombs with a 6-inch knife multiple times in the left and rear mid-section.
Coombs’ 50-year-old wife, Alicia Coombs, told police that Gibson approached her husband and stabbed him multiple times in the torso, according to the documents (which at times also spelled Coombs as “Coombes.”)
The documents said Alicia Coombs reported that Gibson also pointed a cocked black handgun at her husband’s head, and also threatened to shoot her... Zola told Big Island Now that the matter is a “very strong case of self-defense.”
“It will come out that he was attacked by a very large person,” said Zola, who then showed reporters a photo on his cell phone of a large man sitting in a vehicle who he said was the man who had attacked Gibson.
“Mr. Gibson was on the bottom and there were threats against his life and he had no choice but to do what he did,” Zola said.

  • (Why did the transformer explode?? Sabotage?)  May 13, 2014 Soma mine disaster An underground coal fire is ongoing at a mine in Soma, ManisaTurkey. The fire began on 13 May 2014 at a mine owned by Turkey's largest coal producer,Soma Kömür İşletmeleri A.Ş.. The fire was started by an explosion suspected to have been caused by electrical equipment. Because the fire occurred at the mine's shift change, the exact number of miners underground at the time is unknown; the number of trapped workers could be as high as 800.[1] At least 200 people have died as a result of the fire.[2] Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said the number of those lost their lives has risen to 232.[3] 
    • Turkey's Energy Minister Taner Yildiz raises the death toll from the disaster to at least 201 with 200 people still trapped in the mine and 80 miners injured, four seriously. (AP)
