Jenelle Evans' Husband Posts Threatening Gun Videos After Secret Service Visit

12/14/2018 11:58 AM PST

Jenelle Evans' husband says the Secret Service came to his home to question him about his gun-related social media posts directed at President Trump, but if they come back without a warrant ... he's not afraid to shoot the "motherf*****s."

David Eason just shared a series of gun-crazed vids that starts with what looks like a Secret Service vehicle leaving his property. The former 'Teen Mom' star claims they showed up unannounced because he posted a photo of bump stocks and hashtagged Trump and Nancy Pelosi ... which they deemed a threat.

Jenelle's husband explains he did that simply because the 2 want to ban bump stocks -- which he's strongly against -- but he wasn't threatening harm. It's interesting, though ... because he follows it up with a vid of himself shooting a target with a high-powered gun at close range.

He also went on a tirade about his, um, affection for guns and protecting his property ... making it clear he won't hesitate to shoot future trespassers and has PLENTY of ammunition to do so.

Seriously ... so much ammunition that he compared his home to a military base.

The unhinged vids come on the heels of another disturbing incident at the couple's North Carolina home in October, in which Jenelle made a hysterical 911 call claiming David attacked her and broke her collarbone.

She denied being in an abusive relationship days later, and Eason also shared a video showing everything was fine with their family.

We've reached out to the Secret Service ... so far, no word back.

Mass Shooting Threat Letter Makes 2nd Reference To Dec. 12 Attack on CSUN Campus

12/11/2018 7:01 AM PST
Breaking News

The campus of Cal State Northridge is bracing for the worst after a 2nd eerily specific threat of a mass shooting on December 12.

The latest threat was a menacing letter found Monday night in Sierra Hall of the SoCal campus. The letter says, "I'm killing as many motherf***ers as I possibly can." It specifically targets teachers and professors "for making students depressed and giving us bulls**t work."

The writer also claims to have co-conspirators who will open fire that same day at nearby Northridge Academy High School.

Last week there was graffiti found in the same building -- a swastika and the words, "Mass shooting in Sierra Hall 12/12/18" were scrawled on a wall. Additionally, a bunch of swastikas and the Dec. 12 date were found in multiple campus buildings ... with no specific threat.

CSUN administrators say the campus will be open Wednesday, but with increased police presence.

Last month's mass shooting at Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks is just 20 miles west of CSUN.

Mary Carey Doctor Hubby Arrested at LAX With Illegal Weapon

12/9/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-porn star Mary Carey's new husband got put into handcuffs for carrying a beating stick -- which might sound kinda kinky -- but get your head outta the gutter. 

Dr. Joseph Brownfield was busted Monday night at LAX as he and Mary were going through TSA. We're told agents pulled the good doc aside when they noticed a potential weapon in his carry-on ... which turned out to be a collapsible baton. 

Unfortunately for Dr. B., it's illegal in California to carry one of those if you aren't law enforcement or a licensed security guard. He was booked for misdemeanor control of a deadly weapon. He was released form jail after posting a $5,000 bond the next day. 

Sources close to the newly hitched couple tell TMZ ... Mary and her Mister are in the middle of moving from Cali to Florida, and he sometimes carries the baton for protection. 

Thousand Oaks Shooting Country Night Returns to Bar One Month After Massacre

12/6/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Thousand Oaks bar where 12 people were killed in a shooting rampage nearly a month ago is making a valiant effort to return to normalcy. First order of business -- hosting country night again.

The Borderline Bar & Grill's management is bringing their popular Country Line Dancing Night to a new venue, because they're not yet ready to open their doors. The event will be held at The Canyon Club in Agoura Hills -- just a 9 minute drive away from Borderline.

The owners say The Canyon Club "graciously allowed us to set up shop and take over Thursday." The first country night is slated for December 20 with doors opening at 6 PM, dance lessons at 6:30 PM ... then line dancing, drinks and food until closing.

As we first reported ... Borderline plans to open again, but the owners don't have a timetable yet.

It's been closed since an ex-Marine stormed the bar last month and opened fire on tons of college students attending Country Night. Tamera Mowry's niece and a Ventura County Sheriff's sergeant were among the victims.

Responding cops eventually found the gunman dead by apparent suicide.

Ex-Red Robin CEO Dead by Suicide

12/4/2018 8:08 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michael J. Snyder -- known for being the first franchisee of the Red Robin restaurant chain, who later became CEO -- has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head ... TMZ has learned.

Yakima County Chief Deputy Coroner Marshall Slight tells us ... Snyder committed suicide with a high-powered gun Sunday in Washington state. We're told he shot himself on a bench in the front yard of his home.

Slight says police responded to a 911 call and found Snyder's body ... no suicide note was left behind.

Michael and his brother became the first Red Robin franchisees in 1979 and went on to open 14 of the burger restaurants in Washington, Colorado and Idaho. Snyder merged his franchise company with the parent company in 2000 ... and took over as CEO and President.

He was ousted in 2005, though, after an internal investigation discovered he had misused funds and charter planes. He reportedly remained the largest individual shareholder of the company.

Snyder was 68.

Elisa Johnson Hooded Men Seen On Street Before Robbery ... Neighborhood on Edge

12/3/2018 12:32 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Neighbors around the home where Magic Johnson's daughter escaped a home invasion are on edge ... and surveillance cams captured some suspicious activity just before the armed robbery went down. 

We've obtained these videos, taken just an hour before Elisa Johnson ran out of the San Fernando Valley Airbnb where 2 armed men held her friends at gunpoint. The first video shows 2 men in hoodies -- one of them on the phone -- walking around that neighborhood around 3:30 AM. We're told they walked back about a half hour later.

Another video shows a black Cadillac Escalade driving in the same neighborhood with its headlights off around 3:45 AM. We're told the Escalade went up and down the hill twice.

At this point, there's nothing to connect the 2 men or the Escalade to the home invasion -- police are investigating, but we're told neighbors were already on edge due to other violent crimes.

We're told Elisa was running down this same street, knocking on neighbors' doors and pleading with them to call 911.

We broke the story ... 2 armed men robbed Elisa's friends and made off with a Rolex, cash and electronics for a total haul worth between $30-40k.

No one was injured and cops are searching for suspects.

TOMS Shoes Founder Most Americans Back Our Gun Safety Plan ... Most NRA Members Do Too

11/28/2018 3:43 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie knows 90% of Americans want what he does when it comes to gun reform, but what might surprise you is he says a majority of NRA members also back his plan.

Blake was on TMZ Live Wednesday when he told us he's planning to hit up NRA leaders about his initiative to get Congress to enact universal background checks for all gun purchases. He told us the vast majority of the NRA's rank and file members support it ... so he's hoping the org gets on board with his "End Gun Violence Together" campaign.

Blake has said the Thousand Oaks bar mass shooting sparked his company's interest in taking a stand. He kicked things into high gear last week announcing on 'The Tonight Show' that TOMS will donate $5 million to several organizations working to end gun violence.  

He's proudly touting, and rightfully so, the technology on toms.com that makes it simpler than ever to mail a postcard to your elected officials, demanding they back universal background checks.

As for getting the NRA's support -- he explained why it could be a huge win-win for gun owners and the country, as a whole.

Breaking News

A North Carolina man grabbed a shotgun and fired at his son during a HEATED Thanksgiving Day argument about kneeling players in the NFL. 

Makes you feel a little better about your family, right? 

Here's the deal ... cops say 51-year-old Jorge Luis Valencia-Lamadrid had invited family members over to his home for Turkey Day when his two sons began arguing about NFL kneelers. 

The sons began fighting and Jorge tried to break it up -- but realized his kids were too strong. So, he went and got his shotgun. 

Officials say Jorge told his 21-year-old son -- who appeared intoxicated -- to leave the home.

Things began to escalate again -- and the son allegedly threw a water bottle at Jorge, striking him in the face -- and causing him to squeeze the trigger on his gun. 

The shot connected with his son -- striking him in the hand and leg. Jorge told cops he checked on his son, made sure he wasn't seriously injured and then went inside to change his clothes. 

Don't worry, the son will be fine. 

As for Jorge, he was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. He's since been released. 

Wonder how Christmas is gonna go ... 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein Man Phoned in Threat ... I'm Gonna Bomb Your Office

11/27/2018 12:41 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Senator Dianne Feinstein got a serious bomb threat a month before pipe bombs started showing up at the homes and offices of other prominent politicians ... TMZ has learned.

According to court docs ... an intern at the California Senator's field office on Santa Monica Blvd. answered the phone on September 26 and a man on the line wanted to confirm the address of the office. He got mad and blurted out he was gonna "bomb the place" and hung up.

The intern, concerned with what he had just heard, told his supervisor who then contacted Capitol police. According to the docs, cops executed a search warrant for phone records in hopes of identifying the caller.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... no arrests have been made and it's an ongoing investigation.

The bomb threat came nearly a month to the day before pipe bombs were sent to former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, among others. There was also a package addressed to former CIA director John Brennan at CNN's HQ and Robert De Niro.

It had been believed a similar package was sent to Feinstein's field office on October 25 ... but the item turned out to be harmless.

Cops eventually arrested Cesar A. Sayocthe suspect they believe mailed the pipe bombs and charged him with 5 felonies.

U.S.-Mexico Border Crisis Tear Gas Thrown at Migrants, Kids As San Ysidro Crossing Closes

11/25/2018 2:34 PM PST
Breaking News

4:34 PM PT -- CBP San Diego says pedestrian bridges between Tijuana and San Diego are now open again in both directions, heading north and south. 

Tensions are at a boiling point at the U.S.-Mexico border in California, where migrants have started to clash with border agents ... who've also begun throwing tear gas at them and their children.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection closed the San Ysidro border crossing outside of San Diego Sunday, as hundreds of migrants trying to enter the U.S. -- many of whom are seeking asylum -- gathered at the border and demanded entry. Some of them even started throwing rocks at agents, and U.S. agents reportedly responded by throwing tear gas into the crowd.

The move is drawing heavy criticism, as there are children among the migrants. No shots have been fired, but remember ... President Trump essentially gave the green light for retaliation a few weeks ago as the migrant caravan made its way north. 

Needless to say, it's an intense scene. As for a possible solution ... the Trump administration reportedly struck a deal with the incoming Mexican government to keep asylum seekers south of the border as their cases are heard in court. 

Unclear what a short-term fix might look like, though, as run-ins between authorities and migrants continue to escalate.

Tekashi69 $100k Tab for L.A. Bodyguards!!!

11/25/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

It pays to protect Tekashi69 -- especially these days -- 'cause he spared NO expense when it came to hiring muscle to cover his ass in La La Land ... TMZ has learned.

Tekashi hired a small army from 2 different security companies during his recent 10-day stay in L.A. -- we saw the mountainous men shadowing him everywhere. We're told the armed guards provided round-the-clock protection and 3 bulletproof SUVs ... all for the low, low price of $97,165.

Sounds like a ton of cash, until you add the context of what went down during that trip ... starting with nearly coming to blows with Slim 400 in an intense showdown.  

6ix9ine's security had to hold him back, which almost certainly saved him from an immediate probation violation and prison time.

Then, a few days later the Bev Hills shooting went down. We're told there were only 2 shifts of security initially scheduled for the music video set, but after the gunmen opened fire ... they called in a third emergency shift. As a result, Tekashi racked up 25 hours of protection for that single event! 

The kicker? The security companies ain't happy ... and not due to the bullets. We're told Tekashi hasn't paid his tab, but to be fair he's had bigger things on his mind.

We've reached out to Tekashi's camp Tekashi ... so far, no word back. 

Alabama Shooting Shots Fired in Alabama Mall 2 Injured, 1 Dead, Gunman Still at Large

11/23/2018 7:10 AM PST

11/24 10:30 AM PT -- Police are now saying that the man shot and killed Thursday night at the Alabama mall "likely did not fire" the shots that wounded and hospitalized 2 people, an 18-year-old and a 12-year-old.

Authorities say they mistakenly believed 21-year-old Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr. was the shooter, but admit now "our initial media release was not totally accurate." Bradford -- who was shot and killed by an officer as he fled the scene -- is believed to have been involved in the altercation ... but was not the gunman.

The actual suspected gunman is still at large.

A confrontation erupted at an Alabama mall on Thanksgiving night, and it ended with a gunman injuring 2 before he was shot dead.

The incident went down at Alabama's largest enclosed mall -- the Riverchase Galleria in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover.

There was an argument between a 21-year-old man and an 18-year-old male. The 21-year-old pulled out a gun and shot the 18-year-old twice in the torso. An armed, off-duty cop who was working security shot the gunman as he fled, killing him.

A 12-year-old girl was shot in the melee, although it's unclear if the bullet was from the gun of the shooter or the officer.

The 2 victims are expected to survive. The 12-year-old girl had to undergo surgery.  She's in stable condition.

The mall was crowded with shoppers and there was pandemonium after the shots rang out.

Tekashi69 Appears to Order Hit On Keef's Cousin ... Shocking New Video!!!

11/23/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 appears to have ordered his goons to shoot up Chief Keef's cousin, days before Keef narrowly escaped gunfire in New York City.  

In shocking new footage, obtained by TMZ, you see Tekashi on FaceTime with Chief's cousin, Tadoe, asking him if he's going to be at Keef's NYC hotel. When the convo ends, 6ix9ine brags to his crew about placing a $30,000 bounty on Tadoe. 

It's interesting ... the video was recorded in late May, just days before someone shot at and missed Chief Keef at the W Hotel in Times Square. Remember, 6ix9ine and Keef were beefing all spring over social media leading up to the shooting.

We got Tekashi in Bev Hills hours after bullets flew in Keef's direction, and 6ix9ine denied any involvement. But, Tekashi's very public denial didn't stop cops from looking into his role in the failed hit.

Tekashi is now sitting with neutral inmates at a federal facility after getting busted on racketeering, among other charges. Prosecutors say 6ix9ine and his crew conspired to commit a slew of crimes, including shootings. 

Now, if Tekashi was serious in his apparent threat, we have video evidence the rapper might've ordered at least one hit.
