Deadly Shooting Outside Charlotte Club; Final Pitch At Knights Stadium

It's back to work...and school...this morning for a lot of folks following the Labor Day holiday!  And we hope you'll turn your television to WBTV as you prepare to head out this morning...we have a lot of news and more to tell you about from 4:30 to 7:00 AM.

Good morning to you on this Tuesday, 3 September 2013, from the WBTV News morning team... John Carter reporting to you this morning.

BREAKING NEWS:  We're following breaking news out of north Charlotte.  Police are on the scene of a deadly shooting outside Club Cabaret 124.  That's just off North Tryon street.  It happened around 2am.  Right now...our Cam Man Ron Lee is working with investigators, getting information...he'll have a live report.

The North Carolina legislature returns to Raleigh today to determine whether it will override Gov. Pat McCrory's first two vetoes.  The bills would require government drug testing of some welfare applicants and broaden exceptions for employers obliged to use a federal database to determine whether employees can work in the country.

Syrian President Bashar Assad says military strikes against his country would risk triggering a regional war.  That comes as President Obama will be meeting today with leaders of the House and Senate armed services committees, the foreign relations committees and the intelligencee committees.

New developments in the story of a Charlotte church facing allegations of racism.  The pastor told African American members they shouldn't work as greeters...however, we've now learned the pastor has apologized.

The Charlotte Knights closed their season - and their 24 year run at Knights Stadium in Fort Mill - with a win.  We were there for the final pitch.

Astrid Martinez has a very interesting, all-new story for the morning.  Are you as high-tech as James Bond?   Futuristic high-tech security devices that only appeared in secret agent movies are now being rolled out for consumer use in everyday life.

It's going to be another hot day out there today...with a high near 90 and a chance of isolated thunderstorms.  The UV index will be very high, so be sure to slather on the sunscreen if you're going to be outdoors...I know I will when I mow my lawn this afternoon!  Al Conklin will have your complete, First Alert Weather forecast.

All those stories, and so much more, when you join us for WBTV News This Morning, from 4:30 to 7:00 AM.  Hope to see you then!
