Welcome to the Daily Buzz, a quick and pithy rundown of the stories people are talking about right now.

Pa. college student, 19, accused of filming naked men in dorm shower

The campus police investigation began last fall when a Carnegie Mellon University student was allegedly caught by a classmate holding an iPhone over a stall while the two men were showering in a dorm bathroom, TribLive.com in Pittsburgh reports.

The investigation culminated Thursday as Carnegie Mellon University police accused a 19-year-old student Daniel Edilio Jorge of filming men in a dormitory shower.

The East Williston, N.Y., resident was arraigned in Pittsburgh Municipal Court on invasion of privacy charges and other counts, TribLive.com writes, adding:

Police found more than 30 videos of naked students on Jorge's iPhone and hard drive, the complaint said.

At first, Jorge denied filming anyone in the shower, but he later confessed, the complaint said.

Jorge is no longer a student at CMU, spokeswoman Abby Simons said.

Dead road rage victim knew alleged shooter, irate husband says

In the end, the alleged shooter in a fatal road rage case in Las Vegas lived in the same neighborhood. So close, that when police were executing a tactical operation to arrest the suspect, Erich Nowsch, 19, the family of his alleged victim walked to the scene and confronted the gathered media.

That's when victim Tammy Meyers's husband shouted at the media for sensationalizing the fact that Meyers had picked up her armed son and went back out looking for the suspect driver after the alleged road rage encounter when the mother was teaching her daughter to drive.

"Are you happy? You made my wife look like an animal, and my son! There's the animal! A block away! Are you happy?" husband Robert Meyers was quoted as saying by NBC News.

Nowsch was arrested Thursday afternoon after a brief standoff at a home a block away from the scene of the Feb. 12 shooting, NBC writes, adding:

Robert Meyers said his wife "spent countless hours at that park consoling this boy." 

"It is believed right now he is the only shooter, but there is another suspect involved in the incident," Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Capt. Christopher Tomaino said.

Police said Nowsch shot Tammy Meyers, 44, in the head outside her home around 11:22 p.m. that night, and she died two days later. He faces charges of murder, attempted murder and discharging a gun in a vehicle.

In yet another twist in the case, Robert Meyers told NBC that his family is familiar with the suspect:

"We know this boy. I couldn't tell you this before," Robert Meyers told reporters outside his home after the arrest. "He knew where I lived. We knew how bad he was, but we didn't know he was this bad."

Robert Meyers said his wife "spent countless hours at that park consoling this boy," that she fed him and gave him money, and that "she told him to pull his pants up and to be a man, more times than I can count."

Background:

It started out as a mother-daughter driving lesson in Las Vegas. It ended in a volley of road rage-fueled gunfire outside the mother's suburban home. One of the bullets would strike 44-year-old Tammy Meyers in the head, eventually killing her when she was taken off life support on Saturday.

After the initial encounter, Meyers returned home, picked up her armed son and the two went out looking for the suspect who would later shoot her in front of her home.

According to NBC, Meyers and her armed 22-year-old son followed a car she believed had been involved in a road rage incident earlier that night when Meyers had been teaching her daughter to drive.

However, NBC reports that Meyers and her son eventually stopped following the suspect vehicle and returned home.

When they arrived home, however, a car matching the description of the one they'd followed pulled up and someone inside it began shooting, NBC writes, adding that Meyers' son returned fire.

Queen Elsa sought by cops for 'Frozen' forecast: Blonde, blue dress, bursts into song

Cops in Harlan, Kentucky, aren't taking the frozen forecast lying down. Instead, they are out to apprehend the cause of it all: Queen Elsa from the hit Disney movie, "Frozen."

elsa-arrest-warrant-for-frozen-forecast.jpgCops in Harlan, Kentucky, aren't taking the frigid forecast lying down. They are out to apprehend Frozen's Queen Elsa. 

As local station WCHS reports, an all-points bulletin was posted on the city's police department Facebook page on Wednesday stating:

"HPD has issued an arrest warrant for Queen Elsa of Arendelle."

The light-hearted post goes on to describe this chill-inducing suspect:

"Suspect is a blonde female last seen wearing a long blue dress and is known to burst into song 'Let it Go,'" it adds.

As for how dangerous Elsa really is, the police post advises citizens to steer clear:

"As you can see by the weather she is very dangerous. Do not attempt to apprehend her alone."

And if the cops ever do get Elsa, they just have to remember to never, ever let her go.

The New York Daily News reports that the fake Facebook status update soon went viral, and led cops to issue a slightly more serious weather warning:

"All kidding aside, the weather has been very dangerous and temps will get worse. Everyone please take precautions to stay safe and warm," the second post said.

"Stay off the roads unless it is an emergency. Watch out and help others who may need help," it added.
