A 23-year-old man who is believed to be the suspect of a ‘sniper-type’ shooting in D.C. on Friday was found dead that evening. Washington, D.C. police made the announcement in a press conference.

Raymond Spencer set up a tripod and configured a rifle on top of it in a “sniper-type setup” in his apartment according to police. Spencer opened fire from the window of his apartment Friday afternoon, shooting and injuring four people.

Although police did not indicate a specific motive for the incident, they said “this was very much a sniper-type setup…obviously his intent was to kill and hurt members of our community.” A photo of inside Spencer’s apartment released by police showed he had a poster of Yakub, “a figure associated with the Nation of Islam” reports National review.

Thankfully, all of the victims, including a twelve-year-old girl and a former member of the D.C. police are expected to recover from their injuries. The shooting occurred in the Van Ness neighborhood, and prompted the lockdowns of schools, the University of D.C., and foreign embassies including China, Israel, and Pakistan, which are located near the shooting site.

Investigators are all looking into social media posts allegedly made by the suspect during the time of the shooting, three law enforcement officials told the Washington Post.

Pelosi Snaps When Asked About Baby Formula Shortage

Nancy Pelosi

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) snapped when asked about comments from Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who criticized President Biden’s decision to send baby formula to the southern border as the United States suffers from a baby formula shortage.

“Joe Biden continues to put America LAST by shipping pallets of baby formula to the southern border as American families face empty shelves,” Stefanik wrote on Twitter. “This is unacceptable. American mothers and their babies shouldn’t suffer because of the #BidenBorderCrisis.”

Pelosi was asked about Stefanik’s comments during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

“As usual, her statement is totally irresponsible,” Pelosi said. “Babies are crying. We need to get them food. And the president has — now what we’re doing this week in the Congress is, again, Bobby Scott, chair of the Education and Labor Committee, that’s the jurisdiction that will lower some of the regulations, et cetera, so that it’s easier to buy it… We must do something as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible, and use caution, for these babies. But we have to move quickly to do that. And part of this is, again, the supply chain issue.”

Stefanik responded to Pelosi on Twitter, writing: “As usual, your LEADERSHIP is totally irresponsible. Babies are crying. We need to get them food.”

Biden’s Incoming Press Secretary Laughs When Asked About Baby Formula Crisis

Karine Jean-Pierre

On Wednesday, incoming White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the infant formula shortage is a “top priority” for the Biden administration but laughed as she admitted to reporters that she didn’t know who was in charge of handling the crisis of mothers being unable to feed their babies.

As noted by RNC Research on Twitter, “In 25 states, 40-50% of baby formula products are OUT OF STOCK. In 5 states, over 50% of formula is OUT OF STOCK.”

“On baby formula, there have been severe shortages throughout much of the country over many weeks and months but particularly the last couple of weeks, what is the administration doing? What can you do?” a reporter asked Jean-Pierre.

“That’s something certainly we’ve been tracking,” Jean-Pierre replied. “Ensuring that infant formula is safe and available for families across the country is a top priority for the White House and this administration. We know that Abbott’s voluntary recall of infant formula products has led to some Americans being unable to access other critical medical food supply. This is an urgent issue that the FDA and White House are working 24/7 to address.”

“Who is running point on the formula issue at the White House? You mentioned the White House is involved,” another reporter asked.

“At the White House, I don’t know,” Jean-Pierre said while laughing. “I can find out for you and get you a person who is running point.”

Jean-Pierre is currently the Biden administration’s Principal Deputy Press Secretary, but she will officially replace Jen Psaki as White House Press Secretary on Friday, May 13.
