Billy Graham: "I loved him as a brother"

Hello, it's Christine Nelson. A lot happened overnight while you were sleeping. Here is a quick look at some of the things we'll be getting you caught up on when you turn on WBTV News This Morning. If you're not near a television, remember you can watch a live stream of the newscast on your smartphone, computer or tablet. We're live now until 7:00 a.m.

RIGHT NOW: There is a heavy police presence in a Cabarrus County neighborhood right now. Police have surrounded Sleepy Hollow Road in Midland. We suspect something very serious is happening because authorities have pushed our news crews away from the scene. WBTV's Cam Man Ron Lee is there. He has contacts giving him information and will have live reports throughout the morning.

It's been a busy night for police in Charlotte too. Two shootings overnight. One is being investigated as we speak, the other was deadly. We'll have new details just coming down on what happened.

We'll have reaction this morning from Billy Graham on the death of George Beverly Shea, who died last night at the age of 104.

Plus, the latest coming out of Boston on whether authorities are closer to finding out who set made and set those bombs at the marathon on Monday.

We'll see you on the air.

Christine
