MIAMI -- A well known South Florida gang member is in jail after taunting police on the internet.

"Come at us if you want to, Metro-Dade Gang Unit. Here I am, baby," said Rudy Villanueva on a YouTube.com posted video.

Investigators said they arrested 31-year-old Villanueva on federal weapons charges, Wednesday. They said he and another man were in the video showing off an AK-47, a shotgun and several handguns and making open threats towards the Miami-Dade Police Department.

KOKOMO, Ind. -- Police said a Kokomo man accidentally shot himself in the genitals while robbing a convenience store early Tuesday.

Kokomo police said they were called to a Village Pantry store at about 4:20 a.m. after a call from a clerk.

The female clerk told police that a man came into the store with a semiautomatic handgun, grabbed her hair and demanded cash and cigarettes before handing her a white cloth bag, WRTV-TV in Indianapolis reported.

"The bullet traveled through his right testicle ... and then into the bottom part of his leg," Kokomo police Lt. Don Whitehead said.
