‘Homeless hero’ Chris Parker took pictures of the wounded after Manchester Arena attack

Sickening CCTV footage has emerged of the ‘homeless hero’ of the Manchester Arena bombing taking photos of the bloody aftermath as victims lay dying on the ground.

Chris Parker, 33, previously said that he rushed into the concert hall to help in the minutes after the May 22 bomb.

But CCTV footage, shown in his trial at Manchester Crown Court, shows him holding his phone while passing bloody scenes and even stealing from the wounded.

One of the images found on Parker’s mobile phone is understood to have been used in international media coverage although it has not been officially confirmed exactly how the image ended up there.

Colorado police officer shot dead and four others wounded in ‘ambush-style attack’

A man fired more than 100 rounds at sheriff’s deputies early Sunday, killing one and injuring four others, before being fatally shot himself in what authorities called an ambush. Two civilians were also injured.

Douglas County sheriff Tony Spurlock said the shooting occurred at a home at the Copper Canyon Apartments, a landscaped complex in Highlands Ranch, 16 miles (28km) south of Denver.

The suspect was well known to authorities but Spurlock declined to name him until his identity was confirmed. Authorities had left the home about four hours earlier to address a noise complaint and returned to in response to reports of a disturbance at the home.

“I do know that all of them were shot very, very quickly. They all went down almost within seconds of each other, so it was more of an ambush-type of attack on our officers,” Spurlock said. “He knew we were coming and we

Tending to the Wounded After the Mass Shooting in Texas

“We were having a more or less routine weekend day, taking care of some
urgent cases needing surgery. And then we received notification from the
hospital’s trauma service, around 11:30 or 11:45 A.M., that there had
been a mass shooting incident at a church in the San Antonio area. We
were told that many people were injured—as many as thirty to fifty were
estimated—and for us to prepare for a mass-casualty event.

“I have to admit that I did have a moment of personal fear. My wife and
six children were at church and I was at work. So my first, immediate
thought was: Could they be involved in this incident? A few minutes
later, I heard the county where the incident happened, and my fears were
somewhat allayed. Eventually, I made
