In the month since the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school , there has been rash of threats linked to various schools in San Diego County, some of which led to arrests. And while authorities found most of those threats were “not credible,” they stress that there are real consequences for the people who made them.
A man police said was trying to breaking into a parked vehicle on an El Cajon street on Sunday has been identified as 31-year-old Joseph Mercurio. The shooting occurred about 1:15 a.m. on Mona Place near Chase Avenue, police said. The resident, whose name has not been released, told investigators he awoke to the sound of his dogs barking. He looked outside and saw a man breaking into his vehicle in front of his house. The man picked up a .357-caliber revolver and confronted the suspected burglar.
A gang member convicted in the 1995 fatal shooting of a young woman in Encanto was sentenced Monday to 18 years to life in prison. Aswad Walker, 40, was found guilty last month in San Diego Superior Court of second-degree murder in the death of Crystal Odom, 18, who was wounded when a gunman fired at her and her boyfriend in the car Odom was driving. A jury acquitted Walker of an attempted murder charge linked to the boyfriend, Curtis Harvey.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
