The Tallahassee Police Department is investigating a shooting where a woman was shot in the leg around 5:00 a.m. near South Adams Street and FAMU Way on Sunday Morning.

No arrests have yet been made.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has filed a complaint against U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over a “new parole policy” where Florida alleges it has caused a mass release of illegal aliens across the southern border. Florida accuses the Biden Administration of violating public-safety immigration laws and implementing policies to weaken border security, making Americans less safe. The legal dispute between Florida and the Biden Administration began in September 2021 when Florida initiated a legal case against the United States.
Similarly, California Attorney General Rob Bonta is accusing Florida of dropping off a plane load of illegal aliens in Sacramento. California officials said the flight was sanctioned by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. The DeSantis administration has not commented on if they did sanction the flight. If they did, it would not be the first time as DeSantis sanctioned the famous flight of illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard, MA last year.
A trans activist and Montana State Rep. Zooey Zephyr came to Florida and participated in a gay pride rally in West Palm Beach saying that Florida’s recent string of laws banning ideologically-driven books from schools and banning transgender surgeries and hormone blockers for minors are an attack on the LGBT community. “We’re gonna say we know exactly what these bills are trying to do. They’re trying to exterminate us, and we’re not going to stand for it,” said Zephyr, born a male named Zachary Raasch. “Trans people, queer people, intersex people exist. We have been here forever, and we’re not going anywhere.”
