Shooter takes aim at former President Trump.. SATURDAY
Former President Donald Trump was grazed by a bullet at a campaign rally in Butler Pennsylvania this afternoon. Trump was immediately surrounded by the Secret Service and military personnel. Moments later, he emerged waving his arms to the large crowd to indicate that he was OK. As Trump spoke you could hear what sounded like several shots fired. He reached for his ear and he was clearly bleeding. We have also learned that one person (presumably a rally attendee) is dead and another injured by gun fire. We’re still waiting for an official announcement from the Secret Service on his status but reportedly Trump is in good condition.

UPDATE: A message from Trump..
“I want to thank The United States Secret Service, and all of Law Enforcement, for their rapid response on the shooting that just took place in Butler, Pennsylvania. Most importantly, I want to extend my condolences to the family of the person at the Rally who was killed, and also to the family of another person that was badly injured. It is incredible that such an act can take place in our Country. Nothing is known at this time about the shooter, who is now dead. I was shot with a bullet that pierced the upper part of my right ear. I knew immediately that something was wrong in that I heard a whizzing sound, shots, and immediately felt the bullet ripping through the skin. Much bleeding took place, so I realized then what was happening. GOD BLESS AMERICA!”

Oops: SATURDAY FACEBOOK  Sorry about the sidewalk post. We did some research and apparently (as several of you stated) it’s been there for at least a year. We traced it back to 2022 on Google Maps.

I-24 near Clarksville is experiencing issues in both directions. We are working to obtain more information from officials but we have a report of at least one crash. If you plan to head into Kentucky on I-24, or if you are traveling from Clarksville to Nashville or into Robertson County, you might want to reconsider your route. We getting calls from people stuck in the traffic and Google’s cell tracker is showing major blockages.

Dear Daily Brief Subscribers,

We are making an exciting update to our daily brief format to ensure you receive news and updates more efficiently. Starting immediately, we will be consolidating our daily updates into a single, continuously updated Daily Brief page for the entire week.

Here’s what this means for you:

  • We will continue to post news stories and updates as they happen throughout each day.
  • Instead of creating separate briefs for each day, all updates will be compiled into one comprehensive Weekly Daily Brief page.
  • This streamlined approach will allow us to deliver news much faster. For example, critical alerts like Tuesday’s tornado warning was dalaied critical minutes bacause we had to make a daily brief. Now we’ll make a new Daily Brief every Monday and continue to update it all week.

Thank you for your continued support as we enhance our service to provide you with the most timely and relevant news. Should you have any questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Best regards, Smokey staff..
