    Former President George Herbert Walker Bush died overnight at age 94. Bush was born in Milton, Massachusetts, but grew up in Greenwich, Connecticut.

    He attended Yale University in New Haven, after serving in the U.S. Navy.

    While at Yale, Bush played on the baseball team. He was a left-handed first baseman and team captain. He played in the first college world series in 1947.

    It was in New Haven where he and his wife Barbara spent their first few years as a married couple. One of the apartments they lived in was on Chapel Street.

    "As Barbara said in her memoir when she told them that she was expecting and would be bringing a baby home to that apartment eventually she found out that although they like dogs, they don't like babies so they were evicted," said Judith Schiff, the chief research archivist for Yale University.

    The couple ended up moving into a home at 37 Hillhouse Avenue in New Haven, with their first son George W. Bush, who would go on to be our 43rd president.

    “A very old house from the 19th century, ten couples lived there with their children, or more, actually some said there over a dozen, so 40 people lived in that house and had to eat and cook in there," Schiff said.

    After George H.W. Bush graduated from Yale University in 1948, he moved his family to Texas. But his family members would return to Connecticut years later, when his son George W. Bush graduated from Yale in 1968 and his granddaughter Barbara Bush graduated in 2004.

    East Haven Police have arrested a man who was caught burglarizing cars early Saturday morning.

    Officers were dispatched to Stoddard Road after getting a report of a man burglarizing vehicles around 2:10 a.m.

    Before officers arrived, police said a witness told dispatch that she saw the man, later identified as 26-year-old Jacob Longyear, of New Haven, walking down Stoddard Road. She said that she watched him enter an unlocked vehicle near the intersection of Stoddard Road and South End Road.

    When officers arrived, they found Longyear in the passenger seat of a black van.

    Officers said they ordered Longyear out of the vehicle and he was detained without incident.

    According to police, Longyear admitted to officers that he was in the area to burglarize cars.

    Officers located a canvas bag next to Longyear that contained various stolen items from other vehicles in the neighborhood, police said.

    Police said while officers were speaking with Longyear, several residents came out and found their vehicles had been burglarized. Longyear was found with their stolen items.

    Longyear was arrested and is facing charges including burglary, possession of burglary tools, criminal trespass and larceny. He was given a $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on December 3 in New Haven.

    While Longyear was being processed, police discovered he had six active arrest warrants from different agencies throughout the state with court set bonds totaling $215,000.

    Longyear is being held on a total of $225,000 in bonds.

    Police are reminding residents to take valuables inside and lock up vehicles at night.

    While former President George H.W. Bush was known for his political and foreign policy achievements, many will also remember him for his flashy footwear.

    Bush, who died at the age of 94 on Friday, had a well documented love of socks. His fancy for colorful ankle-wear popularized the hashtag #sockswag after former President Bill Clinton used it in a 2013 Twitter post.

    "Enjoyed my annual lunch with President and Mrs. Bush in Maine. Envious of his 'western cactus'-themed socks.#sockswag," Clinton wrote during a visit to Bush’s home in coastal Kennebunkport, Maine.

    He later donated the socks to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland with a letter of authenticity that joked "I Absolutely love a crazy pair of socks. Barbara, on the other hand, has had enough."

    Bush's penchant for colorful, flamboyant socks became one of his trademarks in his elder years. In an interview with granddaughter and "Today" correspondent Jenna Bush Hager, the former president said "I love a good sock." 

    At Barbara Bush’s funeral in April, he donned socks decorated with stacks of colorful books to honor her long devotion to literacy. The socks were a gift from 22-year-old John Cronin, a New York man with Down syndrome who, along with his father, launched a sock business in 2016. John’s Crazy Socks now donates 100 percent of the book-themed socks’ proceeds to the Barbara Bush Literacy Foundation.

    In a 2014 interview with Buzzfeed, Bush said that when picking out a pair of socks, one must "assess the prevailing mood. Sometimes a good sock can give those around you a lift like a catchy tune or a post-convention bounce in the polls."

    He also has one important piece of advice on #sockswag: "The first rule of sock club is there is no sock club."

    Here’s a look back at some of the whacky and notable socks worn by the dapper late former president:

    Tributes to former President George H.W. Bush are pouring in nationwide and in North Texas.

    At the George W. Bush Library and Museum in Dallas, people from all over the country paid their respects. Flowers were left by a fountain out front, flags were at half-staff and visitors left notes of gratitude in guest books set out Saturday morning.

    "I just said he was a great man. He was a great president and godspeed," said Jim Seibert, a Pennsylvania resident.

    "We're very grateful -- not grateful that he passed, but grateful that we can be here and honor his memory," said Barb Seibert, also from Pennsylvania

    In memory of the former president, photos that once hung in the White House were on display — images reflecting a father and son's undeniable experience, energy and loyalty.

    "It's a bond of just love. It's not about politics. It's not about power. It's about just caring for one another," said Jeffrey Rand, a Michigan resident.

    Five years ago, the then 88-year-old George H.W. Bush was with his late wife, Barbara, for the dedication of the library to their son.

    "Dad taught me how to be a president. Before that, he showed me how to be a man and 41, it is awesome that you are here today," George W. Bush said in April 2013.

    A portrait painted by 43 — of 41 — is now on display at the museum.

    The tributes and guest book to leave condolences will be available through Thursday's funeral.

    A spokesman for Russia’s government said Saturday that only two emails and a phone call took place between President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen and Russian officials about a planned Trump Tower project.

    But Russian officials gave the exchanges no more attention than any other business proposition, spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Argentina. 

    Peskov told NBC News in an interview that “every week dozens and dozens of foreign businessmen are approaching us, mentioning possible investments, searching for contacts.” He said Trump representatives ceased contact with the Russians.

    Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty this week to lying to Congress about the proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow and admitted discussions continued into June 2016 during the presidential campaign.

    The national menorah is set to be illuminated during a ceremony on the Ellipse Sunday, the first night of Hanukkah.

    Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is expected to participate in the ceremony. 

    The annual lighting of the National Hanukkah Menorah begins about 4 p.m. and features performances from the United States Air Force Band and Dreidelman and the Macabees.

    Following the ceremony, guests are set to be treated to latkes and donuts. Free dreidels and Menorah kits will also be given out. Tens of millions of people are expected to watch the lighting from home, the National Menorah Council says.

    Meanwhile, in his Hanukkah message to Americans, President Donald Trump honored the victims of the October shooting at Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 

    "Jews today continue to face many different forms of violence, hatred, and bigotry around the globe," the president wrote in a statement, adding that the country pledges its "continued love and support" to the victims and their families for the holiday.

    "Over the coming days, may the warming glow of each candle on the menorah help fill homes and hearts with love and happiness," Trump said. "Together, we reaffirm the truth that light will always break through the darkness."


    CORRECTION (Dec. 2, 2018, 4:50 p.m. ET): An earlier version of this story erroneously reported that the national menorah is the largest in the world. The world's largest menorah is in New York City, according to Guinness World Records.

    Norwich Police have arrested a man who is accused of exposing himself to children who were playing outside on Saturday.

    Officers were called to a home on Maple Street to investigate a report of a man exposing himself.

    The person who reported the incident to police followed the man, later identified as 27-year-old Kyle Quintin White, of Norwich, on Asylum Street until police arrived.

    Once police arrived, White was detained while officers investigated the incident.

    According to police, the person who reported the incident told them that White was in their yard while children were playing outside.

    The children said they saw him in the yard partially expose his genitals.

    Once the children told their parents what happened, the parents confronted White, who fled on foot.

    The parents then followed White and demanded his identity. The parents said White gave them his identity and then fled on foot again, where he was apprehended by Norwich Police.

    White was arrested and is facing charges including risk of injury/imparing morals of a minor, breach of peace and public indecency. He is being held on a $50,000 bond.

    Anyone who may have witnessed this incident is encouraged to contact Officer O'Connell with information.

    Connecticut State Police are investigating multiple crashes on Interstate 95 south in Westport, including one that left one person with serious injuries early Sunday morning.

    According to firefighters, the first crash happened at 3:04 a.m. on I-95 south between exits 18 and 17.

    Crews reported one vehicle on its roof with one person still inside. 

    Firefighters said they stabilized the vehicle and removed the person inside. The person was transferred to Westport EMS.

    About 40 minutes later, police said there was another crash on the highway, just north of exit 17.

    Firefighters reported one vehicle on its side with heavy damage.

    Three people were in the vehicle and were transported to local hospitals. Police said two were transported for precautionary reasons and the third person had serious injuries.

    The highway was closed between exits 18 and 17 while the Collision Analysis Reconstruction Squad processed and documented the scene with help from the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

    There was some congestion in the area while DOT crews repaired the guardrail.

    Massachusetts State Police say they have arrested the driver of a car in connection with a school bus crash investigation after determining that she was under the influence of alcohol.

    Authorities identified the driver as Christy Gilpatrick, 27, of Warren, Rhode Island. The crash is still under investigation and police have not yet determined whether Gilpatrick caused the crash.

    Two adults with serious injuries remain at Rhode Island Hospital, according to police. The other 23 people involved with the crash went to Hasbro Children's, Charlton Memorial, Morton and St. Anne's hospitals, police say.

    State police responded Saturday night to a school bus crash with injuries on Route 24 southbound after receiving multiple 911 calls about a serious crash. The accident was south of exit 11 in Berkley.

    According to officials, Fire Rescue Chief Scott Fournier was the first firefighter on scene, and he immediately knew that Berkley would need significant mutual aid assistance.

    Fournier says he established a command post and issued two orders that resulted in the mobilization of resources from across southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

    He declared a mass casualty incident and requested an Ambulance Task Force.

    In total, 27 ambulances responded to the scene and nearly a dozen municipal fire chiefs from around the area responded to assist Fournier with command, operations, triage and communications.

    The effort resulted in the transportation of 30 patients to five hospitals in two states in 30 minutes.

    "I would just like to thank all of the mutual aid departments as well as municipal and state police. Last evening was a total team effort," Fournier said in a statement on Sunday. "It is the kind of situation we train for and sit in workshops and prepare for, but you really come to appreciate the value of all that planning when see it unfold before you."

    The group on the bus had recently come from visiting the National Shrine of our Lady of La Salette in Attleboro, according to police.

    “We had a big concert here that about 1,000 people came to," said the Rev. Ted Brown, the director of the shrine. He said he was saddened that the group might have possibly been the victims of drunk driving.

    "It just kind of takes the air out of you,” he said. “We forget that automobiles are 3,000-pound weapons and so we always have to drive responsibly.”

    According to State Police, people ranging in age from adult to young children were on the bus. The bus went off the road off the right shoulder and into the woods. It did not roll over.

    A passenger car also went off the road. The female driver was not injured.

    All occupants are accounted for and no other transports are believed to be serious injuries, police said. They were transported with minor injuries or for precautionary reasons.

    According to state police, the bus contained parents and children who were returning to Tiverton, Rhode Island.

    Gilpatrick was charged with OUI alcohol second offense, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and marked lanes violation. It’s unclear if she has an attorney.

    Eleven police officers who responded to the deadly synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh will light a menorah on Long Island Sunday evening in memory of the victims.

    The menorah lighting at Chabad of Roslyn, in Roslyn Heights on Long Island, will commemorate the 11 people killed in the Oct. 27 attack at Tree of Life Congregation.

    The lighting will be “a show of solidarity with the Pittsburgh community and a display of Jewish pride in the face of rising anti-Semitism,” Chabad of Roslyn said in a release.

    “The light of the menorah reminds us that when the forces of light and good encounter darkness and hate, without fail light will always prevail,” Chabad of Roslyn’s director, Rabbi Aaron Konikov, said in a statement.

    “If one hate-filled person created such darkness and pain, imagine the impact of so many more people united in doing good,” he added.

    Rabbi Konikov is close friends with a rabbi at the Chabad of Pittsburgh who worked with responders after the massacre, he told NBC 4 New York. 

    That rabbi helped organize the event at the Chabad of Roslyn, Rabbi Konikov explained. 

    Traditional Hanukkah treats will be served at the event, which will take place at 5:30 p.m. at Chabad of Roslyn.

    The menorah is the tallest one on Long Island and one of the tallest permanent menorahs in the world, Rabbi Konikov said.

    Police have identified the suspect who was shot and killed during an attempted robbery in Prospect on Friday night.

    Connecticut State Police received two 911 calls reporting an armed robbery and assault at Route 69 Auto Sales on Waterbury Road around 6:49 p.m.

    According to police, two masked men armed with guns entered through the rear of the business and headed to the customer service area at the front of the business.

    Officers said the two men began to physically assault several employees, including the owner of the store.

    A customer who was at the business saw the assault and drew his legally registered weapon before firing rounds towards the suspects, according to police.

    The masked men then ran and exited through the rear of the business.

    Troopers arrived on scene and provided medical assistance to the owner and employee, who were then transported to St. Mary's Hospital in Waterbury to be treated for non life-threatening injuries.

    A State Police K-9 team responded to the scene and found a 44-year-old man near the store. Police said the man, later identified as Torrance Battle, of Waterbury, sustained gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead by paramedics.

    The second suspect involved has not been found.

    Fog and drizzle will stick around this evening and we will see mild temperatures overnight. Temperatures will likely stay in the 40s to even near 50 degrees in some parts of the shoreline.

    Monday will be the pick of the week to put up outdoor decorations or cut down the Christmas tree as our NBC Connecticut meteorologists will track temperatures into the 50s across the state with mostly sunny skies.

    The warm air will only stick around for one day. Temperatures will drop by Tuesday bringing colder than average air in for the rest of the week. Highs will average only in the 30s with a breeze on Tuesday.

    At this time, it looks to stay quiet for the week with potential storminess toward the start of next week.

    The American people aren't the only ones mourning the loss of former President George H.W. Bush.

    Sunday night, the Bush family's spokesman, Jim McGrath, tweeted a photo of Bush's service dog, Sully, laying in front of the 41st president's casket with the caption "Mission complete."

    Sully was assigned to Bush in June -- specifically matched with the president to provide support in his daily activities, according to America's VetDogs, an organization that helps match service dogs with veterans, active-duty service members and first responders with disabilities.

    The 2-year-old Labrador retriever was even with Bush when he voted in the November midterm election.

    Now, Sully will go back to America's VetDogs on Long Island, where he will stay through the holidays, before he is assigned to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program in Bethesda, Maryland.

    Sully will work with other dogs to help with physical and occupational therapy for wounded soldiers and active duty personnel at the hospital.

    The president and CEO of America's VetDogs, John Miller, issued a statement on the death of President George H.W. Bush.

    "Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Bush family during this difficult time. It was truly an honor to have provided service dog Sully to be by the president’s side for the past several months. As a true patriot and a visionary, President Bush will forever be viewed by people with disabilities and their families as a hero through his efforts to enact the Americans with Disabilities Act. We are forever grateful to his service to the American people."

    A man from Westport has died after a crash on Interstate 95 south early Sunday morning.

    According to police, a vehicle was traveling on I-95 south, just north of exit 17 in the center lane in Westport around 3:44 a.m.

    After the crash, the vehicle continued to travel south and hit a Connecticut Department of Transportation sign and the joiner to a bridge. Police said the impact with the bridge joiner caused the vehicle to roll over and eject the back seat passenger, later identified as 20-year-old Brian Andersen, of Westport.

    Andersen was taken to Norwalk Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

    The driver and front seat passenger were taken to Norwalk Hospital to be evaluated.
