    Donald Trump latest's close-up is coming from the unlikeliest of magazines: Rolling Stone.

    When the magazine's cover story came out on Wednesday, the most-talked-about passage was a Trump comment about rival Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina.

    According to writer Paul Solotaroff, he was sitting with Trump watching a newscast when a video clip zoomed in on Fiorina.

    "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?" Trump said to Solotaroff. "Can you imagine that, the face of our next president."

    Trump added, "I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"

    Solotaroff continued his cover story (headlined "Taking Trump Seriously") by saying:

    "And there, in a nutshell, is Trump's blessing and his curse: He can't seem to quit while he's ahead. The instincts that carried him out to a lead and have kept him far above the captious field are the same ones that landed him in ugly stews with ex-wives, business partners, networks, supermodels and many, many other famous women."

    The quotes stirred controversy on Twitter Wednesday evening. A spokeswoman for the Trump campaign declined to comment.

    But Trump said on CNN's "New Day" Thursday morning that he was talking about Fiorina's persona, not her physical traits.

    "The fact is that Carly Fiorina has had a terrible past," he said, citing criticisms of her time as a CEO.

    For her part, Fiorina sidestepped questions about Trump during an interview on Fox News on Wednesday night. "I think those comments speak for themselves," she told Megyn Kelly.

    Fiorina said "I have no idea" what Trump meant, but "maybe, just maybe, I'm getting under his skin a little bit, because I am climbing in the polls."

    On CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," Republican strategist Ana Navarro predicted that at next week's primary debate, "she's going to look Donald Trump right into his face and say to him, 'Really, Donald? Really? You think you can criticize my looks?'"

    Republican commentator Ken Cuccinelli, a former Virginia attorney general, said Trump's barb directed at Fiorina is "going to cause him problems, as it probably should."

    That said, Trump has proven uniquely able to withstand periods of outrage over controversial comments in the past.

    The Trump interview and cover shoot with Rolling Stone was arranged back in August. It came as something of a surprise because the magazine is well known for its progressive bent. Its publisher Jann Wenner is a staunch supporter of Democrats.

    A spokeswoman for the magazine said the issue -- dated September 24 -- will hit newsstands on Friday.

    Solotaroff's cover story also reveals that Trump has not totally moved on from his well-documented feud last month with the Fox News Channel.

    Most recently, he was absent from the network for two weeks after criticizing prime time host Megyn Kelly.

    While spending time with Solotaroff, Trump handed the writer a copy of a New York magazine article titled "How Roger Ailes Picked Trump, and Fox News' Audience, Over Megyn Kelly."

    It was the same article he handed to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd when she visited him a couple of weeks ago.

    "I don't start these fights, but I sure as hell win them," Trump told Solotaroff.

    A man who was arrested over the weekend is facing more charges after he confessed Tuesday to snatching a woman's purse outside a convenience store in West Park, Broward Sheriff's Office deputies said.

    Lamonte Dean, 20, faces multiple charges including robbery by sudden snatching and battery on a person 65 years of age or older.

    According to an arrest report, surveillance video showed Dean inside a Kwik Mart  Aug. 17 at 5551 W. Hallandale Beach Blvd. before he followed a woman outside and snatched her purse from her arm.

    The woman told deputies that Dean got away with $225 in cash and her Bank of America card, which she cancelled immediately afterward.

    Deputies said the victim was not able to identity Dean in a photo lineup, but said Dean confessed to the crime Tuesday while being interviewed by detectives at the Broward County jail.

    Detectives said Dean also identified himself in the surveillance images and told them that he was addicted to the drug flakka.

    A man fatally shot his estranged wife before turning the gun on himself early Thursday morning in southwest Miami-Dade County, police said.

    Miami-Dade police were called to a shooting at the Sunrise at Sunset apartment complex at Southwest 152nd Avenue and Southwest 75th Street.

    Police said a 45-year-old woman was killed by her husband, from whom she recently separated.

    "There was a dispute in the parking lot, and that's when he was able to produce his firearm and obviously shoot her," a detective at the scene said.

    The suspect then tried to kill himself, police said. He is now in surgery at Kendall Regional Medical Center.

    Police said the couple's two sons were inside the home at the time, the youngest 16 years old, but they were asleep and didn't witness the incident.

    "It's a sad situation because of the fact that you have two boys that are left behind with mom, and for them to find out like this, it's tragic, it's heartbreaking," the detective said.

    A family is pleading for help in finding the driver who struck a man who was riding a scooter in Miami over the weekend and left him to die.

    Jean Carlos Hernandez-Trujillo, 29, was visiting his cousin from Venezuela when he was killed on Saturday.

    "(He was a) good boy, good son, good friend. He came here only for vacation," the victim's cousin, Marilis Lopez, said.

    Police said the driver of a Mazda ran a red light on Flagler Street and struck the scooter, knocking Hernandez-Trujillo off the vehicle and onto the trunk of the Mazda.

    Hernandez-Trujillo was on top of the trunk of the Mazda until he was thrown off the vehicle when the driver turned onto the onramp of Interstate 95.

    Detectives said the driver of the Mazda never slowed down or stopped to help.

    "He never helped. This is not nice," Lopez said. "I am angry because this person continued driving with the body of Jean Carlos on the top of the car."

    Seasoned Detective Willie Moreno held back tears as he addressed the media on Thursday.

    "It's a human being," Moreno said. "This person obviously has no conscience. I want to know who this person is."

    "This person needs to be in the jail now," Lopez said. "Because this can happen to any family."

    Police are searching for a silver or gray four-door Mazda sedan (pictured left) with tinted windows.

    Anyone with information about the fatal hit-and-run is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    Police are investigating after numerous vehicles were broken into Thursday morning at a northwest Miami-Dade County apartment complex.

    Police said the crime happened between 4:30 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. at the Hibiscus Point Apartments off Northwest 79th Street and 13th Avenue.

    Police said two men hopped a fence on the east side of the complex and began smashing windows and vandalizing cars.

    Residents said this is the second day in a row that vehicles in the community have been targeted.

    According to police, a total of 31 cars and SUVs were broken into. They said 23 were vandalized and eight were burglarized.

    The thieves busted windows, locks and door handles.

    Neighbors told Local 10 News reporter John Turchin that the thieves took electronics, jewelry, wallets and items that contained personal identification information, such as driver's licenses and voter cards.

    "I came outside immediately, and when I looked I see almost all my neighbors outside complaining, on the phone calling police and all their windows were busted," one woman said.

    "Our cars are vandalized for now. Who's to say we’re going to feel safe sleeping in our apartment. If they're doing something to our cars what makes you think they won't do it to our apartments?" another woman said.

    Hours after the break-ins, several technicians were still replacing windows and stereo equipment. They are expected to remain at the complex for much of the day.

    A Broward County judge convicted of DUI testified before the Judicial Qualifications Committee at a hearing Thursday in West Palm Beach.

    The Florida Supreme Court in April rejected a deal that would have imposed a fine and suspension for Judge Cynthia Imperato.

    An investigative panel of the JQC recommended that Imperato be suspended for 20 days without pay, incur a $5,000 fine and undergo an alcohol evaluation. But the state's high court instead called for a full hearing to determine an "appropriate sanction" for the disgraced judge.

    Imperato was arrested on a DUI charge in Boca Raton in November 2013. She was found guilty last December and sentenced to 20 days of house arrest and a year of probation. Her driving privileges were also revoked.

    The JQC will give its recommendation to the Supreme Court, which will make the final decision.

    The Coral Gables Police Department has released a newly enhanced composite sketch of a man who is believed to have broken into numerous homes in the area since last year. In each case, female victims have been home alone and have awakened to find a person standing near them.

    In one case, in the 200 block of Menores Avenue in June 2014, a man entered a female victim's home through an unlocked door, concealed his identity with a ski mask and sexually assaulted her, police said.

    Police said the man's DNA was discovered in that case and two others, helping them create a more detailed sketch of the man.

    In May 2015, another woman said she was sleeping when she woke up to find a man standing over her, covering her mouth with his hands.

    Police said the woman had left the kitchen hallway light on, but the man unscrewed the light bulb from the socket enough to disable it.

    The woman told detectives that the man was wearing gloves and told her that he was 19 years old. She said she told him, "You're wearing gloves. I promise not to move or look for 10 seconds if you would just leave."

    She said she closed her eyes, and the man quickly left her apartment.

    Police said the department has been investigating six overnight apartment burglaries over the last year in which women were awakened and touched by a burglar, who is believed to be the same man.

    Before those incidents, five cases of lewd and lascivious behavior were reported in the north area of the city. Coral Gables police believe that the same man might have committed those crimes and similar crimes in surrounding communities.

    Police described the man as having olive-colored skin and believe he is between the ages of 20 to his early 30s. They said he often wears a hooded sweatshirt or other material to conceal his identity.

    Police also described the man as a loner and stalker, and someone who is socially awkward and immature.

    Anyone who has information about the crimes is asked to call the Coral Gables Police Department at 305-442-1600 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    A woman escaped from the Broward County courthouse for a short time Thursday morning after she attended a hearing to face charges of grand theft and dealing in stolen merchandise.

    A Broward Sheriff's Office representative said shortly before 10 a.m., the judge ordered Dayanira Salazar to be jailed, and as deputies attempted to handcuff her, she took off running.

    Deputies said Salazar ran out of the building and down the street, where she jumped into a cab.

    A deputy stepped in front of the taxi and Salazar took off running again, authorities said.

    She was apprehended a short time later. Deputies said Salazar was taken to a hospital because she suffers from asthma.

    She is expected to face additional charges once she's released from the hospital.

    Salazar was originally arrested for stealing jewelry from her sister, whom she lives with, and selling the items to a pawn shop in Lauderdale Lakes, an incident report said.

    Authorities said a deputy was injured during the escape.

    Take a look back at newspaper front pages from the day after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, as gathered by the Newseum in Washington, D.C.

    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush marked the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on Friday by applauding first responders and the military and praising his brother, former President George W. Bush, while other candidates also marked the somber occasion.

    Front-runner Donald Trump tweeted: "Let's all take a moment to remember all of the heroes from a very tragic day that we cannot let happen again!"

    At a service on the 1th anniversary of the attacks, Bush said, "I'm proud of meeting the families of firefighters. To this day, when I go to New York, I always stop at a fire station to say thanks for their incredible sacrifice and the services of the emergency responders."

    The former Florida governor spoke at a remembrance in Londonderry, New Hampshire, which started at 8:46 a.m., marking the time the first plane hit the north tower of the World Trade Center. He later began reading the names of the victims in a ceremony that was expected to last until noon.

    He added, "I'm proud of the president of the United States at the time who unified our country in a way that was desperately needed and created a strategy to keep us safe."

    At a town hall meeting in New Hampshire Thursday night, Bush recounted where he was just one day before the attacks, having dinner with his brother George and a friend. The sense of normalcy before the attacks, he recalled, was "surreal."

    "We had dinner with friends of mine, and supporters of his, and spent two hours talking about books we were reading, it seems so surreal now," he said.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie recalled on "Fox and Friends" how then-President Bush had called him the day before Sept. 11 to let him know he was appointing him federal prosecutor. Christie took the next day off, brought his kids to school, and then his wife called him from Manhattan to tell him a plane had struck the World Trade Center.

    "While we were on the phone talking about other things, the second plane hit the second building," Christie said.

    He then lost track of his wife for five hours before she reached a working pay phone in Manhattan. The next time he saw her was when she walked off the ferry from Manhattan.

    "When she got off that ferry, she was walking down the street and she was wrapped in a blanket and soaking wet -- anybody who had been in lower Manhattan, they were hosed off by firehoses. They were covered with dust," Christie said. "That's' the first sight of my wife after having left her that morning. I just grabbed her, hugged her, got her in the car and got her home."

    Former New York Gov. George Pataki recounted his experience that day on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" -- from being alerted by his daughter when the first plane hit, to going against his security's recommendations that he leave Manhattan for Albany.

    The smoke and fire at Ground Zero turned lower Manhattan into a "Dante's Inferno," he said.

    "I went down and actually that night was at Ground Zero, and the flames were everywhere. You could taste the air from one river to the other. If ever there was Dante's Inferno live, it was lower Manhattan that day. And yet I remember, too, and this is another terrible memory, on January 1st, almost four months later when Mike Bloomberg was sworn in at Gracie Mansion, you could see the smoke still rising from ground zero a few blocks to the south," Pataki said. "Almost four months later it was still burning."

    Other 2016 hopefuls weighed in throughout the day Friday. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who was a state lawmaker at the time in 2001, released a statement praising the first responders and cautioning against radical Islam.

    "On that terrible day, radical Islamic terrorists unleashed unimaginable horror against our country, ending nearly 3,000 innocent lives. As we honor the victims and keep their families in our thoughts and prayers, we cannot forget the bravery of the hundreds of first responders who sacrificed their lives while trying to save others," Walker said in a statement.

    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio,sent his thoughts in a string of tweets Friday morning.

    "Today my thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the terrible attacks 14 years ago. America will not, and must not, ever forget," Rubio tweeted.

    Surveillance video shows three men who are believed to have robbed a jewelry store last month in Miami-Dade County.

    Police said video from a store at 1205 NE 163rd St. shows three men walking around the shop while making hand and head signals at each other before they left without purchasing anything.

    Police believe the men are the same people who robbed Burt's Jewelers, at 1676 Miami Gardens Drive, two days later.

    According to detectives, the men came into the store posing as customers. Police said two of the men pulled out guns, sprayed employees with pepper spray and tied them up.

    Police said the owners opened the safe for the thieves and unlocked some of the cases that had jewelry inside.

    The thieves left with $1,500 in cash and several pieces of jewelry valued at about $250,000.

    Police said the men seen in both surveillance videos were dressed similarly. Two of the men are described as black and between the ages of 20 and 25, while one is estimated to be between 25 to 35 years old.

    Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    Cuba's highest authority says it is releasing 3,522 prisoners ahead of next week's visit to the island by Pope Francis, the third time Cuba has granted inmates freedom before a papal visit.

    The Council of State announced in state media Friday morning that the prisoners to be freed include a mix of women, people younger than 20, inmates suffering from illnesses and people whose terms were coming to an end next year.

    The government won't release people convicted of serious crimes like murder, child sexual abuse or violations of state security. The final category is often applied to people considered political prisoners by Cuban and international human rights groups.

    The government says the group includes some foreigners whose home countries have agreed to repatriate them.

    Miami-Dade Fire Rescue dedicated one of its fire trucks Friday to the New York City firefighters who lost their lives in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

    Engine Co. 3 was dedicated as a tribute to show its support for the Fire Department City of New York on June 28, 2002.

    On Friday, the firehouse unveiled one of its trucks which was outfitted with a white over red paint scheme to resemble the FDNY's apparatus, complete with a display of the American flag, New York City skyline and the Statue of Liberty.

    The truck, a 2015 Rosenbauer Commander Pumper, also displays "Never Forget" on the back of the truck and lists the names of all 343 firefighters who died on 9/11.

    Miami-Dade Fire Chief Dave Downey was among the rescue crews from South Florida to go to New York immediately after the attacks.

    "I've been involved in search and rescues for over 20 years. I've been all over the world. This one to me was personal," Downey said.

    A New York City firefighter who lost fellow comrades that day also attended Friday's ceremony at Tropical Park, recalling the emotions of that unforgettable day.

    "The thing I remember the most, by far, is late that night sitting with the guys we had left and praying the sun came up the next day," he said.

    Miami-Dade police have arrested a man they believe beat a woman to death with a tire iron last week.

    Timmy Lee Williams, 23, was wanted on a first-degree murder charge. Police said Friday that he was in custody.

    A team of mechanics broke down a small plane that made an emergency landing on Pompano Beach and removed it from the beach Friday morning.

    The Piper J5A aircraft took off from North Perry Airport and went down about 4:30 p.m. Thursday after the plane experienced some problems with its engine.

    "Oh he was so low, close to 20 feet off the ground," Carol Carlisle, who is also a pilot, said.

    Carlisle said she watched the plane land on the sand from her balcony on South Ocean Boulevard.

    "I thought he did crash," she said.

    The pilot was quick to act and landed safely on the sand.

    "It tipped over on its nose, but there was no damage. The pilot did a pretty good job," mechanic David Bettencourt said.

    Meanwhile, beach goers said they were shocked that no one was injured.

    "I've never seen a plane land on the beach, especially how well executed it was," Carlisle said.

    The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident.

    A 19-year-old man has been arrested in a hit-and-run crash that injured an 8-year-old boy in Coral Gables last week.

    Dennis Cerrato was arrested Thursday on charges of leaving the scene of an accident involving an injury and leaving the scene of an accident involving property damage.

    According to an arrest report, Cerrato struck a boy, identified as Sebastian Ochoa, who was riding his bicycle on Sept. 3 in the 1100 block of South Greenway Drive.

    Sebastian's father, Ismael Ochoa, who was jogging nearby, told police that he saw a white Honda Civic drive off the road onto the shoulder and yelled out to his son to "look out."

    Police said Sebastian ran south on Greenway Drive in an attempt to avoid being hit. According to the report, Cerrato struck the bike and then drove back on the roadway and ran over Sebastian's leg with the car's left front tire.

    Police said the boy suffered a broken leg and was taken to Nicklaus Children's Hospital. He has since been released from the hospital.

    Detectives visited Cerrato at his home Thursday and said he told them, "I fell asleep and I knew I hit the boy. I didn't stay because I didn't want a confrontation with the father who was pissed."
