Florida teen accused of shooting man at Starbucks drive-thru

A 19-year-old Florida man allegedly shot and killed another man during an argument at a Starbucks drive-thru, police said.

Justin Boersma was arrested early Thursday and charged with first-degree murder and firing a weapon in a public place.

Witnesses said Boersma had cut in front of a truck in the drive-thru in downtown Lake Worth, according to an arrest report obtained by the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

The driver of the truck, identified as 31-year-old Samuel Rossetti, then left his vehicle and banged on Boersma’s Nissan Versa — before ripping off the door handle, the report said.

As Rossetti was heading back to his truck, Boersma left his sedan and allegedly fired three shots.

Boersma’s girlfriend and their infant child were in the car at the time of the confrontation. He told police that he feared for their safety, according to the report.

Rossetti was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Boersma fled the scene in his car, but was later tracked down and arrested.

2-year-old boy shoots parents in Maine home

A 2-year-old boy in Maine shot his parents Wednesday morning with a gun he picked up from a nightstand, a report said.

The toddler’s 25-year-old father was hit in the head, and the mother, 22, was struck in the leg in the shooting at their home in West Bath, WMTW reported, citing Sagadahoc County Sheriff Joel Merry.

The baby was injured by the recoil of the gun, authorities said. All three family members were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, according to Merry.

“The question of how the boy was able to pick up and fire the weapon is of great concern and is being investigated,” Merry said, according to the report.

“This situation, while disturbing, could have had an even more tragic ending,” the sheriff said.

Banksy's 'Love is in the Air' auctioned for $12.9M in crypto

A Banksy piece fetched $12.9 million in an auction Tuesday — and the winning bidder will pay for the pricey pop art with cryptocurrency.

The anonymous artist’s “Love is in the Air” is the first physical piece of art sold by a major auction house paid for using crypto, according to a tweet from Sotheby’s.

The protest image — which shows a protester winding up with a bouquet of flowers in hand instead of a molotov cocktail — was sold after a 14-minute bidding battle with four participants, Sotheby’s said.

The auction house announced in March it would auction off a series of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, which are digital assets that represent ownership of virtual items like art and sports memorabilia.

The company said it “initiated the restart of the pipeline” — which delivers about 45 percent of the fuel consumed on the East Coast — at around 5 p.m..

“Following this restart, it will take several days for the product delivery supply chain to return to normal,” Colonial’s statement said.
