    San Diego police released an image Friday of a man they say is wanted in the investigation of a burglary and sexual assault in Pacific Beach earlier this month. 

    Jeffrey Hanze, 55, should be considered armed and dangerous, police said. 

    Officers believe Hanze, who also uses the name Jeffrey Hanre, is connected to the sexual assault of a woman who was sleeping in her Pacific Beach home on Monday, Oct. 1.

    The woman told police she awakened just before 2 a.m. to find a man in her home. The man ran off before police could take him into custody. Investigators believe the man entered the home through an open window. 

    The victim lived on Chalcedony Street near Cass Street. 

    She described her attacker as a bald man wearing a short-sleeved shirt. 

    San Diego police have identified Hanze as the prime suspect in the crime. He's described as balding with blue eyes, approximately 6-feet and weighs about 200 pounds, police said. 

    He should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.

    Anyone with information can call the SDPD’s Sex Crimes Unit at (619) 531-2210 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.

    A man caught looting a vacated home in Alpine during the West Fire was sentenced Friday to nearly five years in prison.

    Adrian Iseni, 30, was sentenced to four years and eight months in state prison. He pleaded guilty to looting last month.

    Iseni was caught July 6 by residents in the 1500 block of Highland View Road near Viejas Creek with stolen properties and burglary tools.

    A woman driving by saw Iseni leaving her friend's home and confronted him. 

    She told NBC 7 Iseni looked suspicious because he was wearing a hoodie with long pants and carrying a large tote bag in a 115 degrees heat.

    The woman alerted her husband and neighbors, some of whom are off-duty law enforcement officers, about the Iseni. They cornered to him and called the sheriff's department.

    Henry "Hank" Weldon was remembered Friday in Valley Center by family, friends and members of the local military community.

    Weldon, 95, of San Marcos, California was among the elite U.S. Navy frogmen who served as pioneers for the current SEAL program.

    He died Oct. 5 and was buried at the Valley Center Cemetery on Friday.

    Trained in underwater demolition techniques and Marine Raider Skills, Weldon and his fellow frogmen played a crucial role in the Philippines before Gen. MacArthur and his troops retook the islands for the Japanese. 

    “He was not one to talk about the honorable and heroic things he did in World War II but they came out,” his step-daughter Terri Babcock said.

    She described Weldon as a "man's man" who "always did it right." 

    There’s what talk about securing him a place in the National Cemetery but Babcock said the family wanted to keep him close.

    The honor guard playing "Taps" at the service Friday meant a lot to her and the rest of Weldon's family.

    “There’s been a strong military taking care of him because the heroes from WWII and on, they are disappearing,” Babcock said.

    Janalee Roper knew something was wrong when her usually precocious 21-month old son became lethargic with a fever earlier this month.

    Roper took him to urgent care at Rady Children’s Hospital in Escondido on Oct. 11. Her son Jett has a 103.4 fever, rashes on his stomach, legs and ear — all classic signs of Kawasaki Disease.

    Because the illness is so rare, doctors thought it was just another childhood illness and prescribed Motrin and Tylenol, something Roper tried before taking him to the hospital.

    “I told him, ‘No, we did that at home and it did not work,” Roper said.

    Then doctors noticed Jett’s hands were swollen and his rash had spread to his entire body and his eyes were bloodshot, she said. It was then, doctors decided to test of Kawasaki.

    “I thought of a motorcycle,” Roper said. “I had never heard of it before.”

    Dr. Adriana Tremoulet, who treated Jett, the disease is so rare that only 80 to 100 children in San Diego are diagnosed with it a year.

    Kawasaki is an inflammation disorder that affects the children’s heart and doctors don’t really know what causes it, she said. Tremoulet is the associate director of the Kawasaki Disease Research Center at UC San Diego.

    And the disease seems to come in clusters and peaks in February and March. She said. So far this month, four children have been diagnosed with it.

    “There seems to be some relationship between wind and storm patterns here in the San Diego area,” Tremoulet said.

    The recent cluster came after the recent rain storm earlier this month. And the disease is also hard to diagnose.

    “It presents with fever and rash and can look like a lot of other pediatric illnesses,” she said.

    Symptoms of Kawasaki include a prolonged fever that can’t be controlled with Motrin or Tylenol, rash on the body that spares the hands or feet, bright red eyes, swelling of the lymph nodes, trouble walking.

    “The real issue is not all children come in with [all the symptoms],” Tremoulet said. “It really does take a combination of working with clinicians and families understanding they’re really worried about this to bring it up to their local pediatrician.”

    Most parents who come to her complained of a prolonged fever and knowing that their children are sicker than they are with common childhood illnesses.

    The disease tends to disproportionately affect children of Asian descent, particularly Filipino and Japanese.

    As for Jett, he is doing better now after three treatments and an eight-day stay in the hospital.

    NBC 7 stopped by a Hispanic-food trade show in North County to find out about the newest trends in Southern California cuisine. 

    The Comida Expo in the Bing Crosby Hall at the Del Mar Fairgrounds is happening Friday and Saturday. Food and beverage companies shared the hottest fads in their industries. 

    San Diego is known as the craft beer capital of the United States. The newest trend in craft beer is to infuse it with Mexican flavors. 

    "Mexico is our direct neighbor to the south, so we're seeing a lot of breweries, us included, experimenting with special Mexican ingredients, adding this to the beer and making them very flavorful and interesting," said Eric Zuazo, marketing coordinator of South Norte Beer Company in San Diego. 

    From agave to mango chili flavors, the influence of Mexico is beginning to make its way to the Southern California beer scene starting right here in San Diego. 

    "Especially in San Diego, beer drinkers are always looking for something new to drink," said Zuazo. "Mexican ingredients add that interesting twist to a beer." 

    There were a total of 65 vendors at the trade show. It is not open to the public, but rather a networking opportunity for vendors, food distributors, and foodservice operators to share ideas and stay on top of the newest trends in their fields. 

    A 10x10 booth starts at $1,600. The trade show will be on October 26 from 11am-5pm and October 27 from 11am-4pm.

    Jurors could not reach a verdict Friday in the trial of a man involved in a shooting after a heavy metal concert at Petco Park last summer. 

    Ray Pitoau faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon in the August 7, 2017 incident at Sixth and Island avenues near the ballpark.

    Off-duty San Diego sheriff's Deputy Jason Philpot, 36, was shot three times. Philpot said he was trying to protect his brother, who had gotten into a verbal confrontation with the defendant.

    The jury informed the court around 4:30 p.m. it could not come to a consensus. A status hearing has been scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

    Philpot, his brother and some friends had attended the Metallica concert as part of a birthday celebration. The group had been drinking and was kicked out of a nearby bar for disorderly conduct before the shooting, according to Pitoau's defense attorney. 

    Pitoau fled to Mexico after the shooting and was arrested at a home near Tijuana in September 2017. 

    Philpot testified at a pretrial hearing that he noticed an altercation when his younger brother called out for help.

    “He said ‘Help, he’s going to shoot me’ and the way he was grabbing my arm and the fear in his voice, I knew it wasn’t a joke,” Philpot testified at a pre-trial hearing in June.

    Philpot testified that when he saw the defendant holding the gun, he moved to keep the gunman from shooting anyone. That's when Philpot was shot in the chest and the arm.

    "I fell down and I remember trying to grab him and take him to the ground as well," Philpot said.

    A bystander who was in town for a conference at the San Diego Convention Center was also struck by one of the bullets.

    Pitoau pleaded not guilty to two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

    A jury found the documented gang member accused of firing at a rival and killing a woman with a stray bullet guilty of murder and other charges in a Vista courtroom Friday.

    Prosecutors say Dionicio Torrez, 24, shot 55-year-old Catherine Kennedy in March of 2017 while she was driving home from church on Grand Avenue in Escondido.

    Torrez was found guilty on one count of first-degree murder, one count of attempted murder of rival gang members and two counts of shooting at an occupied vehicle. His 16-year-old accomplice was also charged in the shooting.

    Torrez's sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 20 in Vista.

    Days after Kennedy’s death, the community held a prayer service at St. Timothy’s parish where she volunteered.

    Torrez could face life in prison.

    An 8th child has died at a medical center hit by a viral outbreak, the New Jersey Department of Health says.

    Seven other children at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Passaic County have died recently after being exposed to an adenovirus outbreak at the center, however, the virus was not yet confirmed in the eighth child on Friday evening.

    The news comes after four additional cases of adenovirus at the pediatric long-term care medical facility in Passaic County was confirmed, bringing the total number of young patients infected to 23, health officials revealed Friday.

    The New Jersey Department of Health said additional laboratory tests confirmed the additional cases. The medical institution houses the Pediatric Center; the eight deaths have taken place up to date, with the latest being announced Wednesday.

    The medical center has been grappling with a “severe outbreak” of adenovirus, a family of viruses that can otherwise cause mild illness, according to the state's Department of Health.

    The facility has been instructed not to admit any new patients until the outbreak ends and they are in full compliance.

    On Thursday, the Wanaque Center established a 24/7 hotline for families impacted by the outbreak, which has already claimed the lives of seven children.

    “This is an active investigation of an outbreak of adenovirus so it is possible that lab tests will confirm additional cases. A Department of Health Communicable Disease Service staff member is on site at the facility and monitoring the outbreak. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is assisting with lab testing and expertise,” the state’s Department of Health says.

    Adenoviruses are common viruses that can cause a range of illnesses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The viruses cause cold-like symptoms, sore throat, bronchitis, pneumonia, diarrhea, and pink eye. Adenoviruses can pose serious complications to certain people, particularly those with weakened immune systems, respiratory issues and cardiac disease.

    That is the case at the Wanaque Center, health officials said.

    "Unfortunately, the particular strain of adenovirus (#7) in this outbreak is affecting medically fragile children with severely compromised immune systems," the New Jersey Department of Health in a statement Tuesday. "This strain has been particularly associated with disease in communal living facilities."

    According to the CDC, adenoviruses are typically spread from an infected person to others through close personal contact such touching or shaking hands; through the air by coughing and sneezing; or by touching an object or surface with adenoviruses on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands.

    The state’s Department of Health said they were informed of the outbreak on Oct. 9. On Sunday, state health officials found handwashing discrepancies.

    The I-Team has uncovered inspection reports for the center dating back to 2015. During that time the facility was cited for 14 violations, including infection control.

    The state Department of Health is monitoring the situation “very closely” and has been in contact with the staff at the center “providing guidance on infection control and cleaning procedures.”

    The Wanaque Center is a for-profit facility that, according to its website, works with "with medically fragile children" from newborn to 22 years of age. The center also serves as an adult nursing home and rehabilitation center for short- and long-term care.

    Ten years after Sandy Nolan's son died of a heroin overdose, the drug abuse problem in San Diego is even worse.

    Nolan was a featured speaker at Friday's unveiling of the county’s annual update on drug-related death trends. She spoke tearfully about her son Jerry’s 2008 overdose death.

    Nolan also told parents that it’s very hard to detect the early signs of prescription drug abuse. She counseled them to prepare for a long, difficult and sometimes unsuccessful effort to help a loved-one beat their addiction.

    “And if you think recovery is as simple as a30-day rehab, it is not,” Nolan said. “My husband and I sent Jerry to rehab four times in a year and a half,” only to see him ultimately defeated by his addiction.

    In San Diego county, prescription drug deaths increased 8 percent last year to a total of 273 fatalities.

    While deaths from heroin actually decreased, the synthetic opioid fentanyl killed many more addicts.

    According to the drug abuse report card, 84 people died from fentanyl overdoses last year compared to 33 deaths in 2016.

    Fentanyl is especially dangerous, because it’s 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and at least 25 times stronger than heroin.

    That unpredictable potency causes more deaths from accidental fentanyl overdoses.

    Drug users are also at risk from cocaine that's been spiked with fentanyl.

    But Friday, Nolan and drug addiction counselors focused on prescription painkillers which they warned are a gateway to addiction and street drugs.

    They urged parents to properly dispose of unused prescription opiates at drop-boxes throughout the county and to take advantage of drug take-back days, like the one this Saturday.

    “There's no reason why somebody should die from medications sitting in a medicine cabinet that someone's not using,” said Scott Silverman of the Safe Home Coalition.

    Safe disposal and collection of prescription drugs started in San Diego County 2009 and the practice was adopted nationally in 2010. National Drug Take Back Day is Oct. 27, and you can participate locally sheriff's department facilities.

    The San Diego County Sheriff's department has put up safe drop boxes at its stations across the where prescription drugs can be disposed.

    Illegal marijuana dispensaries continue to pop up all over Chula Vista and the city is having a hard time keeping up and shutting them down.

    Some are getting pretty creative in their effort to keep clandestine.

    One example is open on Broadway in a strip mall with a giant canopy sign that says "Thrift Store." With nothing more than an address and a white-decal "You Are Here" sign over a facade of tinted glass, it's easy to miss what you're about to walk into.

    "I opened the door but I didn't see anything, so I asked the girl in there if there was a thrift store and she said no, it's a dispensary," a woman told NBC 7 as she walked away from the building.

    It’s one of many illegal marijuana dispensaries plaguing Chula Vista. Right now, no dispensaries are allowed within the city.

    The illegal shops run untaxed. When operators are caught they are shut down and pay fines a, but then move on to the next spot.

    Customers of the dispensary on Broadway told NBC 7 it has been there for about two weeks. Before that, it was down the street.

    "This place is 24 hours. it's pretty much the only place I know that's 24 hours. A lot of people know about it," said customer Rob Rogers.

    The extra business, brings some extra concern from people who live nearby.

    An elementary school is around the corner and a high school is down the street.

    "You never know who's buying for who. And then the school is around the corner there. You never know what's going to happen," said neighbor George Barr.

    The city is trying to get the problem under control with Measure Q on November's ballot, where voters will decide if shops can legally open up, or none will be allowed in the city; and either way, it will be strictly enforced.

    "They have spinners outside advertising. They're really being bold and aggressive. We really need to be able to reign that in and control the situation here in Chula Vista," explained Chula Vista’s Mayor, Mary Casillas Salas.

    Measure Q stipulates an eight-dispensary maximum in the city, and if the maximum is reached then only four additional delivery services will be allowed.

    Supporters of Measure Q say it’s a big deal because if voters don't approve it, things will stay just like they are now: Absolutely no legal marijuana manufacturing or dispensaries within city limits.

    If the yes votes prevail, that means licensed shops can open up and the city can tax manufacturing, cultivation and testing sites, as well as dispensaries and delivery services anywhere from 5 to 15 percent.

    Manufacturing, cultivation and testing will be limited to industrial-zoned sites only, and those establishments will have to qualify for a permit.

    "We will not grant a license to anybody who has been operating illegally," Casillas Salas said.

    Every applicant will have to pass a criminal background check, financial check, and have their site approved through the whole permit process. They’ll also need a plan for security and money handling.

    According to City Councilmembers, some of the revenue from the tax would go toward setting up an enforcement unit focused on regulating legal pot shops and shutting down illegal ones. The rest of the revenue would go into the general fund.

    Where your next car repair could take a bigger chunk out of your wallet.


    Your next car repair could take a bigger chunk out of your wallet. Cars are more high tech than ever before but fixing those cars when there is an accident could run up the bill. 

    According to one study, one in four drivers can not pay $500 for a surprise car repair.  But that $500 bill could double or triple with today's new high tech cars. 

    Our cars today are like computers on four wheels. It's not just plastic and steel that keeps us safe, it's also a collection of sensors. 

    "You have sensors in the front and rear bumpers," said Doug Shupe with Automobile Club of Southern California, "You have sensors actually in the windshield."

    Dime size sensors are part of a car's Advance Driving Assistant System (ADS). Sensors warn drivers about potental crashes, when there is a car in a driver's blind spot and help with crash and back up warnings. The cars are looking at what's happening all around them at all times.

    Shupe says this technology has the potential of cutting traffic accidents down by 40 percent, but also double the cost of your next car repair. Even a simple fender bender.

    "Can cost you $3,000 more to repair compared to a vehicle without the Advance Driver Assistance Systems," said Shupe.

    That's because today's bumpers are home to a collection of sensors and high tech electronics. The same is true with a car's sideview mirror. A simple bump of your mirror with a trash can or mail box can cost a lot of money to repair. Even replacing your windshield could cost a lot more since it now has embedded sensors.

    Not only do sensors have to be replaced but also calibrated. That often has to be done by the dealership which can drive up costs. But the Auto Club is not trying to steer people away from the extra safety features.

    "It's so important that we educate ourselves and we talk with our insurance providers to make sure we are going to be covered," said Shupe.

    Senator Bernie Sanders continued his nine-state campaign supporting Democratic candidates with a stop at Mira Costa College in Oceanside.

    Around 1600 people crowded the college’s gym to hear Sanders speak and throw his support behind 49th Congressional District candidate Mike Levin, who is challenging Republican Diane Harkey in the race to fill Darrell Issa’s soon-to-be-vacant seat.

    "This seat can well be the difference between victory and defeat," says Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

    Sanders went on to tell his supporters how he and Levin support health care for everyone and making college affordable.

    "Mike understands that we need an economy and a government that works for all of us, not just the one percent," Sanders added.

    At the end of his speech, Sanders attacked President Donald Trump's immigration and foreign policy decisions and then made a final plea for support.

    "A week from Tuesday will be the most important midterm election in the history of the country,” Sanders said. “That election will determine if Donald Trump continues to do his things unchecked by either the House or the Senate, and we cannot allow that to happen."

    NBC 7 requested an interview with Harkey. A campaign spokesperson said she wasn't available but sent NBC 7 this statement.

    "Mike Levin and Bernie Sanders do not represent our values. They both support open borders and massive tax increases to pay for a government take-over of entire industries, socialist ideas that have failed everywhere they have been tried."

    Two San Marcos High School students went the extra mile Friday to talk to their peers about the dangers of underage drinking and drugs.

    The stands were full for the highly anticipated rivalry game between San Marcos and Mission Hills High School, which presented the perfect opportunity to celebrate Red Ribbon Week.

    Red Ribbon Week is a nationally-recognized drug, alcohol, and violence prevention and awareness campaign.

    In light of that campaign, excitement at the big game was accompanied by a sobering message.

    Red ribbon decals could be spotted on the backs of every helmet on the turf and on every coach and referee’s shirt. Hundreds more were pinned to the shirts of cheering fans on both sides.

    For some members of the Youth Advocacy Coalition at Mission Hills, the cause is important to them because of things they’ve seen on and off campus.

    “A lot of people bring alcohol to the school and it just doesn't end up right,” junior Justin Soto said. “A lot of fights end up happening because of that.”

    “Well I have had many friends that have taken drugs and alcohol,” junior Brandon Bazen said. “You see that drugs really have an impact on their lives and the families around them.”

    Baseball is unpredictable. 

    With the Dodgers backs against the wall, they somehow fought back. 

    Max Muncy hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 18th inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Boston Red Sox, 3-2, in the longest game in World Series history. 

    "This was a gut-wrenching game for both sides," said Muncy following the win. "This is one of those games that whoever came out on top is going to have a lot of momentum going into tomorrow. This was an extremely long game, 18 innings. A lot of pitchers were used. Every position player was used. Injuries on both sides. Their guys are banged up, our guys are banged up. It's one of those things when you're able to come out on top from a game like this, you have to feel it gives you a little momentum going to the next one."

    Boston still leads the series, two games to one. 

    [[498480721, C]]

    Muncy took a 90MPH cutter from Nathan Eovaldi to opposite field in left-center to end a marathon game that saw both teams burn through 18 pitchers and 27 position players (both postseason records), in a seven-hour and 20-minute affair.

    [[498778841, C]]

    "I fell behind 3-0 and just wasn’t able to execute my pitch," Eovaldi said of the homer to Muncy. "It’s difficult. When you go that far, you want to come out on top. He was clutch right there. It’s frustrating." 

    Before that, Eovaldi pitched six innings of relief, allowing no runs, while throwing 97pitches. Oh yeah, and he pitched in Game 1 and Game 2 in Boston. 

    "When he came in, I asked him, 'How do you feel?' He's like, 'Let me finish it,'" said Red Sox manager Alex Cora of Eovaldi after the 17th inning. "So his stuff was still good. The last out, Turner, that was good. And then Muncy put a good swing on it, and hit it out of the ballpark."

    The exhausting and exhilarating game began as a pitcher's duel between former Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello and rookie Walker Buehler. 

    [[498737381, C]]

    With Sandy Koufax watching from behind home plate, Buehler, the 24-year-old rookie, became just the second youngest Dodgers pitcher in postseason history to have a scoreless start since Johnny Podres threw a complete game shutout in Game 7 of the 1955 World Series at 23 years old.

    "It's pretty cool, but at the same time, this is something I've probably pictured for a long time," said Buehler of his start. "I'm just glad it worked out the way it did. It's a pretty special moment for me."

    The Dodgers took the lead in the third inning when Joc Pederson crushed a first pitch changeup from Rick Porcello into the Boston bullpen.

    [[498748931, C]]

    The longball snapped an 0-for-24 slump by Dodgers hitters against the Red Sox dating back to the fourth inning of Game 2. 

    The story before Game 1 was all about All-Star pitchers in Clayton Kershaw and Chris Sale. In Game 2 it was all about Cy Young Award winner David Price dominating the Dodgers lineup. Yet in a series that has featured three different Cy Young Award winners, and a seven-time All-Star, it was the unassuming rookie with the famous last name that became the first to pitch into the seventh inning. 

    Against the best team in baseball, on the biggest stage the sport offers, Buehler surrendered just two hits, and retired the last 14 batters he faced as he struck out seven over seven scoreless innings. 

    "I think that certain people can handle a moment like this and understand what was at stake tonight," said Roberts of Buehler. "We needed his best effort. And we needed him to go deeper than their starter, log some innings. And some guys run from it. Some guys can't answer the bell. But this guy, he's got an overt confidence, a quiet confidence, a little combo. But he's got tremendous stuff. And he lives for moments like this."

    If writing his name in Dodgers history wasn't enough for Buehler, he also joined elite company as he became the second pitcher to have at least seven strikeouts, two or fewer base runners and not allow a run over seven innings since Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series.

    "His stuff is amazing," Cora said of Buehler. "We were putting good at-bats early on, and all of a sudden he started throwing cutters and changeups, and he was able to keep us off balance. For him to go seven at this stage, they needed it and he did an outstanding job."

    After Buehler's dominant performance, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts wanted just one man to pitch the final two innings of the game: All-Star closer Kenley Jansen.

    "We felt that in a must-win game to go to Kenley for two innings, we liked that," said Roberts of his decision. "That was the plan." 

    Maybe he should have rethought that decision. 

    Jackie Bradley Jr. took Jansen deep with two outs in the eighth inning for the game-tying homer.

    "It didn't work out," admitted Roberts of the blown save by Jansen. 

    Bradley Jr.'s homer was the 14th allowed by Jansen during the 2018 season, he had never allowed more than six in any previous season.

    The game would head to extra innings where the Red Sox threatened to take the lead in the top of the 10th. 

    Pedro Baez walked J.D. Martinez, and Ian Kinsler entered the game to pinch-run for him. After a single by Brock Holt put runners at the corners with out one, Eduardo Nuñez hit a fly ball to centerfield that appeared to be deep enough to score the tying run. 

    But Cody Bellinger had other ideas as the center fielder threw a cannon to catcher Austin Barnes who tagged out Kinsler just before the plate, keeping the score tied at 1-1.

    "I thought for sure that game wasn’t going to end," Bellinger said after the threw out Kinsler at home. "I thought we’d have to wake up in the morning to finish it. I'm just glad Max Muncy hit that home run so we can go home and sleep."

    Both bullpens continued to throw lights out, but with two of the best teams in baseball battling head-to-head, a game with a razor-thin margin of error was bound to come down to one fatal mistake. 

    Ironically, it came down to two, as both teams scored on bizarre errors in the 13th inning.

    Brock Holt led off the inning with a walk. One pitch later, Holt stole second on a ball in the dirt, and he scored on dribbler back to the pitcher that turned into disaster for the Dodgers. 

    Nuñez, who broke Game 1 open with a three-run homer, hit a little nubber back to reliever Scott Alexander, but first baseman Max Muncy was charging in on the play, so second baseman Kiké Hernandez had to hustle to cover first base. 

    Alexander threw underhand to Hernandez, but he slipped on the base and the ball flew over his head, allowing Holt to score from third and the Red Sox to finally take their first lead of the game, more than five hours after the first pitch had been thrown.

    "It was a flukey thing," Clayton Kershaw who had to enter the game as a pinch-hitter in the 17th inning said of the 13th. "It was in no-man's land with that grounder. It seems fitting for this game. Both were just really weird plays."

    Less than a week away from Halloween, it's fitting that the 13th inning proved to be the most bizzare for both teams. In fact, it's a surprise a black cat didn't run onto the field or a witch fly overhead on her broomstick.

    The Dodgers half of the unlucky 13th inning began with Muncy staring at 101MPH fastballs from Eovaldi. Eventually, he worked a walk, putting the tying run on base.

    After a flyout from Machado, Bellinger hit a fly ball in foul territory down the third base line that Nuñez dove into the seats to catch. Muncy wisely tagged on the play, and found himself in scoring position with two outs. 

    Yasiel Puig followed with a groundball up the middle that Ian Kinsler backhanded for what appeared to be the final out of the game. But Kinsler's throw went wide at first base, allowing Muncy to score on the error and tie the game.

    Both teams squandered numerous chances with the former Dodger, Eovaldi, holding the team that drafted him back in 2008 in check for seven innings until Muncy's big blast in the bottom of the eightheenth. 

    Muncy's walk-off homer was his first career walk-off hit of any kind, and the first walk-off home run in the World Series for the Dodgers since Kirk Gibson's legendary longball in Game 1 of the 1988 Fall Classic. 

    "Obviously there's not many words I can use to describe that," Muncy said of his walk-off homer. "The feeling was just pure joy and incredible excitement. That's about all I can think of because it's hard to describe how good a feeling it is." 

    Boston's loss snapped a five-game road winning streak dating back to the AL Division Series against the New York Yankees.

    There are "multiple casualties" after a shooting Saturday morning at a Pittsburgh synagogue, officials said, adding that three officers have been shot and the suspect is in custody.

    Pittsburgh Police Commander Jason Lando told reporters that police responded to an active shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue at Wilkins Avenue and Shady Avenue in Squirrel Hill. He said there were "multiple casualties."

    Preliminary details from multiple senior law enforcement officials briefed on the incident say 12 people were shot, including the officers, and at least eight people have died.

    Police had said officers were still working to determine there was no more threat.

    Video from local NBC affiliate WPXI posted to social media showed a heavy police presence in the area along with other emergency services. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Pittsburgh said on Twitter that agents were also responding to the scene.

    The Tree of Life describes itself on its website as conservative Jewish congregation that is also “progressive and relevant to the way we live today.”

    President Donald Trump tweeted that he was "watching the events unfolding in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania."

    He added: "Law enforcement on the scene. People in Squirrel Hill area should remain sheltered. Looks like multiple fatalities. Beware of active shooter. God Bless All!"

    Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf called the shooting a "serious situation," adding on Twitter, “Please stay away from the area and keep the congregants and law enforcement in your prayers."
