Rain coming

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom. 

Wasn’t today’s sunshine just glorious?  Hope you didn’t get too used to it because Eric Thomas says there’s a powerful system rolling through Texas that will hit us with rain on the weekend.  He’ll have his First Alert Forecast at 11:00.

A reminder to never leave packages in your car at a mall.  We’re hearing from a woman who had her car loaded with luggage, jewelry and electronics she’d just purchased on a shopping trip in Blowing Rock.  She stopped in at Charlotte Premium Outlets for 20 minutes.  When she returned to her car, the back window was broken out and she estimates her $10,000 of gifts were gone.  Now, she’s blaming the lack of mall security.

Horrible story in Chicago tonight—a 9-year old boy was lured and killed by a street gang.  Why?  Because his father is a known gang member and now refuses to cooperate with police.

Burglars at a Best Buy store in Hickory broke-in the hard way—right through a cinder block wall using sledge hammers.  They knocked through the outside wall in several places before they could squeeze through.  Makes you wonder how no one heard the banging in the middle of the night.

You just won’t believe your eyes when you see two men wearing wing suits and jet packs soaring next to a jumbo jet airliner.  It’s a stunt that makes you wonder why?

Please join Molly Grantham, Eric Thomas, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00 tonight!
