Bullets near Birkdale

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom getting ready for 11:00.

Would you pay someone $2,000 up front for a house rental, then be told you wouldn't have to ever pay rent again?

You'll want to hear what the woman who goes by the name, "Hawaii," says in her defense.

76-degrees today in Charlotte, just a week after we couldn't top 30 and snow. The 76 mark ties a record high for this date set in 1939.

And, it's powerball night-- $400 million goes to the person holding the winning six numbers. No winner tonight means the jackpot will soar past half a billion for Saturday's drawing. We'll have those winning numbers at 11:00.

Please join Molly Grantham, Eric Thomas, Delano Little and me in just a few minutes from now.
