15-year-old Killed In Concord

Good morning to you on this Monday, 14 October 2013, from the WBTV News morning team ... John Carter reporting to you this morning.  We have a lot to tell you about when you tune in from 4:30 to 7:00 AM this morning.

We're working on getting more information on a homicide that happened in Concord late last night...the victim was only 15-years-old.  We'll have more details on what happened...as well as the search for the shooter.

We'll have the latest information on the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer who was shot in his apartment Sunday.

You'll also get updates on two other shootings in the area...one in Rowan County, the other in Lancaster.

Time is running out to get the nation's financial affairs in order.  We'll tell you what's expected to happen today in the battle over the government shutdown.

The 11th annual Greater Hickory Kia Classic at Rock Barn begins today at Rock Barn Golf & Spa in Conover.  It's part of the PGA Champions Tour and some of the biggest names in golf will be there.  The other big part to this story...it was just a few months ago that heavy rains and flooding washed away many of the greens at the championship course!

Another big sports story...the Carolina Panthers beat the Minnesota Vikings in NFL action...and now have sole possession of 2nd place in the NFC South.

It was raining as I drove into work this morning...not a heavy rain, but a steady, solid mist.  Is that going to continue into rush hour?  Be sure to tune in for Al Conklin's First Alert Weather forecast.

All that and so much more...when you join us from 4:30 to 7:00 this morning...hope to see you then!
