thanks, shayla. a man shot after threatening officers in polk county has died. this is an update to a story we've been following for much of the week. during a traffic stop wednesday, officers say they were forced to fire on francis perry after he threatened them. no officers were hurt in the altercation. and this wasn't perry's first brush with the law. take a look
5:04 am
with a weapons charge at age ?11. he called himself "freddy james".. and portrayed himself as a "buyer" to people selling stuff online. but deputies say the name was fake-- and he's really a thief.. and a murderer. his real name is victor manns... yesterday morning polk county deputies took him into custody. detectives say manns was using the online site 'let go' to meet his victims. he had already robbed 2 victims-- one at gun point. just days later... the robbery scheme turned deadly. jeffrey morrow tried to defend himself with a shot gun... but manns fired his own gun-- killing morrow. deputies say the owners of "let go" provided them information... which led them to manns. he's now facing first degree murder charges. this next story will leave you shaking your head... a driver took off... after hitting a 9 year-old girl who was skateboarding to school. 10-year-old takalya pierce was riding to tarpon springs elementary wednesday morning... when she was struck by a car in the school
5:05 am
says a man in a white mercedes paused at the stop sign... so she thought it was safe to cross. the next thing she knew...the car had slammed into her small body. pictures from her mother show cuts to her face and arms... and a swollen foot. the driver got out and asked if she was ok.. when she said yes... he took her word for it-- then drove off without calling for help. when takayla told the school what happened... they gave her a bag of ice-- but didn't call police mother's phone... saying she was in the nurses office-- but made no mention of a car accident... something takayla's mother says is unacceptable. the pinellas county school district told us despite being steps away from school..the child was not on school grounds. so calling police would be her parent's decision.. takayla's mom has filed a report... and police are now searching for that driver. he's described as a blonde, white male driving a white mercedes. a puppy is recovering at
5:06 am
county... after he suffered third-degree burns to his body. this is just heartbreaking. the puppy.. is just 5 weeks old.. an ocala farm worker found him and other pups... and brought him to the humane society tuesday -- where they named him and bandaged him up. they're not exactly sure what happened... but they do ?not think someone burned him on purpose. they're referring to hurricane hermine.. which of course lashed the state with heavy rain and wind.. keegan needs multiple surgeries. they think he will be healthy enough to be months. by now you've probably seen this video... of a woman burning - what she thought was her ex-boyfriends car in clearwater... it wasn't! that video has gone viral... and this morning we're learning more about the woman involved. 19-year-old carmen chamblee was arrested days after police released this video. officials say she was upset because she thought her ex-boyfriend owed her a hundred bucks. carmen went looking for him... but instead
5:07 am
thought belonged to him. the fire destroyed the car... which actually belongs to thomas jennings. he says he doesn't know carmen at all. but when police showed up... his day went from bad to worse. it turns out jennings had a warrant out for his arrest... so he was taken to jail. carmen is also behind bars this morning... charged with second degree arson. the f-b-i is looking for a man who robbed a south florida bank.. but in a strange twist... a man watching the news recognized the shirt the robber was wearing as ?his... that shirt had been stolen.. in a home invasion! c-j evans says the man burst into his fort lauderdale home monday... stealing his shirts... cell phone.... laptop and cash. the man wasn't wearing a shirt when he broke in.. when the f-b-i released the picture of the bank of america robbery.... evans immediately recognized
5:08 am
robber can keep the shirt... however... he wants the rest of his stuff back. after a 24-hour delay... miami officials have started spraying controversial chemicals over the area-- in hopes of keeping mosquitoes in check. officials decided to use "naled"... which has been proven to kill mosquitoes that carry the zika virus. but some people are worried about other side effects. governor scott mandated the aerial spraying after locally- transmitted zika cases popped up in the area. the spraying will continue for the next time for a happy story to start your morning off the right way.. this morning's good day good deed is from the pasco sheriff's office. deputies responded to a neighborhood dispute on wednesday night... but once that was resolved it was all fun and games. some kids walked over to say hi to the deputies... and started an impromptu game of basketball. sometimes you just need to take a moment to relax and
