Get In the Know With Kim’s Monday News & Sports Headlines

Instead of  Colts’ “Blue Monday,” it’s more like a Boo-Hoo Monday after the Colts hosted their nemesis, the New England Patriots for Sunday Night Football and left fans with a head scratcher. More on that, in sports below, but first…

In local news…

Bullet shooting out from gun

Indianapolis Metro Police say that two people, including one of their own who is a retiree of IMPD, have been shot overnight on the eastside near East 34th Street and Emerson Avenue. Police say the homeowner who’s a retired IMPD officer, was grazed by a bullet to the head and his adult daughter, who was visiting him, was shot through the arm. That bullet also struck her in the leg. Both are in stable condition at now at Eskenazi Hospital. Police don’t believe the victims were the intended target, however they do think the targets could possibly be the people in the house next door because of an earlier police run to that home answering a call of shots fired there. Those neighbors aren’t cooperating. If you have any info on this neighborhood shooting, call Crime Stoppers anonymously at (317) 262-TIPS.

Police say multiple firearms were collected at the scene of a fatal shooting in Terre Haute that claimed the life of an Indianapolis teenager. The victim was attending an after-party celebrating homecoming weekend at Indiana State University, when he was shot and killed during an altercation. Police arrested an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old suspect in the murder of Donovan Clinkscales. Clinkscales was a senior at Manual High School on the southside.

Local pastors, police officers and members of the community all say they want the violence to end here in the city. So, they got together at a peace rally on Sunday that was held in Tarkington Park to remember the victims of recent shootings in the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood. There were songs, sermons, speeches and signs calling for the violence to end.

A school principal, his son and niece are mourned by hundreds attending funeral services at Broad Ripple High School. Norris Ncube, 52, was principal at Indianapolis Junior Academy. He, his 12-year-old son, Joshua, and niece, five-year-old Malia Siziba, were killed when their car was struck by an elderly driver nearly two weeks ago.

In National News…

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says his brother has a good record on fighting terrorism. On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Jeb Bush said Donald Trump’s attacks on former President George W. Bush’s handling of 9-11 prove he’s not a serious candidate for President.

Congress is back at work today, following a week-long break. House Republicans are still struggling to nominate a new Speaker to succeed John Boehner, who is resigning. The other high profile item for the House this week is the appearance of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is scheduled to testify before the Select Committee on Benghazi on Thursday.


The fans really want to know what happened during Sunday Night Football last night at Lucas Oil Stadium. The game was supposed to be the “Deflategate” revenge game where the Colts were to make a come-back on national television. Instead, the Colts made a play that will have their fans scratching their heads for weeks to come, possibly years. A horrendous call on fourth down spoiled the Colts’ chances of beating the reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots during the game. Simply put, it was on a punting play that the Colts lined up nearly the entire team on the right side of the field. Then, on the left side, they left the ball and two Colts’ players. One of those players was promptly tackled and the Patriots took advantage of that twisted gift of field positioning and scored. Tom Brady and crew sealed the deal. The Pats put the game away to a final of 34-27. There was a resounding, “What the…???” as Colts fans left the stadium and as TV’s were slammed off in Indy and beyond.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano is manning up about that fourth down play. He says he alone shoulders the blame for the colossal failure that has NFL fans snickering and Patriots fans rejoicing today. Pagano told reporters that by shifting nearly his entire team to the right side of the field, he was hoping to catch New England off-guard, possibly generating a penalty. Colts punter Pat McAfee says it was probably one of the most failed fake punts of all time.

Weather today…

Sunny Skies. Monday’s High: 69 degrees.
