A woman was arrested after her two children were allegedly found unconscious inside a running car in a Walmart parking lot in San Jacinto, California.

Deputies arrived at the parking lot Monday evening after receiving reports that two children were alone in a black Toyota Solara. The officers found a 1-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy unconscious in the vehicle.

“Deputies removed the children from the car, and fire personnel began performing life-saving measures. The children were taken to Hemet Valley Hospital via American Medical Response for advanced care,” Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said, Patch reported.

Preliminary investigation revealed the children were left unattended in the car for over two hours.

Investigators searched the car and found methamphetamine and heroin “within arm’s reach of both children,” the Sheriff’s Department added.

Following a search, the mother of the two children, identified as 29-year-old Sarah Casciato, was taken into custody and charged with child endangerment. She was being held at Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility as of Wednesday in lieu of a $500,000 bond.

Reports stated the accused was homeless, but it remained unclear where the woman was when she was taken into custody.

Child Protective Services took custody of the children after they were discharged from the hospital.

The incident comes weeks after a woman in New York was arrested after she left her children unattended in a car for over 30 minutes. Officers arrived at the scene after receiving information that two children were found alone in a car parked near a mall. Investigation revealed the mother, 27-year-old Guadalupe Guevara-Diaz, had left the children, a 9-year-old girl, and 3-year old boy, in the vehicle and gone shopping in the mall. The mother was arrested and charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

In another incident, last month, a woman in Virginia was arrested and charged with child neglect after she left her toddler alone in a car for approximately 30 minutes. The vehicle was parked at a Walmart while she shopped in the store.

KALAMAZOO, MI — A 17-year-old male is in stable condition after he was shot Friday afternoon while sitting in a parked car.

The shooting was reported around 3:15 p.m. Friday, Nov. 27, in the 400 block of Reed Avenue, according to Kalamazoo Public Safety Sgt. Robert Holdwick.

Officers were called to that location on reports of gunfire and soon learned that the 17-year-old who was shot had been taken to an area emergency room.

The teen, a Kalamazoo resident, told officers he was sitting inside a parked car when he was hit by gunfire, Holdwick said.

Officers were able to recover evidence from the shooting scene but have not yet been able to locate or identify the shooter.

Earlier in the day, around 2:45 p.m., officers were called to the 1300 block of Bridge Street on a separate incident of gunfire.

Police officials say a house in the area occupied by an adult and a toddler was struck by gunfire but no one was injured. Officers were unable to locate the shooter involved in that incident but did collect shell casings.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety at 269-337-8120 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.

A 14-year-old boy has pleaded guilty in adult court to fatally shooting an older teenager seated in a parked pickup truck in St. Paul.

The St. Paul teen is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 17 after admitting Friday to second-degree unintentional murder in connection with the death on Sept. 1 of Jorge E. Batres, 17, of Coon Rapids, on the city’s East Side.

Officers were called to the 1200 block of Hazelwood Street about 6 p.m., where they found Batres in the driver’s seat of the pickup with a gunshot wound to the head. He was declared dead at the scene.

The teen’s mother and law enforcement agreed that he be prosecuted as an adult and receive a 12-year sentence, with the first eight years served while incarcerated, said county attorney spokesman Dennis Gerhardstein. The agreement also calls for dismissal of a second-degree intentional murder count.

Defense attorney Mike Padden declined to comment about the case.

The state sees very few suspects this young or younger accused of murder. Since 2001, there have been at least eight others who were 14 and younger charged with murder in Minnesota, according to a state judicial branch spokesman.

While the criminal complaint and the County Attorney’s Office has publicly identified the defendant by name, the Star Tribune is withholding his identity because of his age.

According to the criminal complaint:

One of two witnesses told police that the teen and Batres appeared to struggle in the pickup. One shot was fired while both were in the vehicle. The suspect got out and shot Batres again, took money from inside the vehicle and ran off.

Video surveillance from a nearby market showed the teen about half-hour earlier wearing the same yellow bandanna as described by one of the witnesses.

Batres’ sister told an investigator that he had accumulated more than $1,000. Investigators searched the suspect’s home and seized $1,525 and three bags of marijuana from his bedroom.

Officers located the teen, and he said he was at the market earlier “but went home to take a shower and then came back with his mother,” the complaint read.
