Parsons' Case Bombshell; Suing Gang Members

Good morning to you on this Thursday, 22, August 2013, from the WBTV News morning team... John Carter reporting to you this morning!  Is your television on?  Be sure to tune in to WBTV from 4:30 to 7:00 this morning for the area's BEST morning newscast.  We have a lot to tell you about this morning.

A live report on the bombshell in the Erica Parsons case.  A WBTV News investigation has found the grandmother the missing teenage girl allegedly went to live with...is dead.  We'll have more details for you.

Today, the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police department will find out if it can sue nearly two dozen alleged gang members in Charlotte.

A rally to promote immigration reform is scheduled to be outside the Charlotte office of Congressman Robert Pittenger today.

Jury deliberations are likely to start today in the military trial of the U.S. Army psychiatrist charged with the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood in Texas.

Syrian activists say President Bashar Assad's forces are pressing on with a military offensive today in the rebel-held eastern Damascus suburbs. It's where the opposition says government forces attacked yesterday with chemical weapons, killing more than 100 people. There's no word on casualties in today's bombing.

We know what's behind a big power outage that affected customers in four counties last night.  At one point more than 20-thousand people were in the dark across Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Stanly and Union.

We have an important story every parent needs to see this morning before their child heads back to school...it's about immunizations.  Astrid Martinez will be live with the story that's all new for you this morning.

Fog in some areas this morning...but that should clear off later as we are looking at mostly sunny skies today.  Al Conklin will have your complete First Alert Weather forecast.

All that and so much more...and the Panthers play the Pittsburgh Steelers in preseason action later tonight...when you join us for WBTV News This Morning from 4:30 to 7:00 AM.  See you then!!
