Judge rules: no public dashcam video

This is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom, getting ready for the news at 5:00.

Tonight, the dashcam video on the night a CMPD officer shot and killed an unarmed man won't be shown publicly. That's the ruling from Judge Richard Boner who says officer Randall Kerrick should be tried in court and not in the media.

North Carolina Congressman Mel Watt's political future is on hold tonight. Republicans in the Senate blocked Watt's nomination to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency with some saying he's too political to confirm the President's nomination.

On my weekly Crime Stoppers report, I've got exclusive video of a frightening robbery at a local convenience store. A man covered from head to toe, carrying a large black handgun, bolts in at 6:00AM, terrifying the two clerks on duty. He demands money from very specific locations, which is why police believe he may be an ex-employee.

Of course, it's Halloween night and so far, no rain. But Eric Thomas says it may not stay that way all night.

Please join Eric, Maureen O'Boyle, and me for WBTV News at 5:00 Tonight!
