Not again

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

It’s happened again.  This time on a much larger scale.  Terrorists hitting restaurants, a soccer match, a mall and a concert hall—killing more than 150 at last count.  These are soft targets which go undefended in everyday life.  And that’s the point of this latest exercise in evil—killing innocents where they shop, eat and go to be entertained.  We certainly stand with France tonight.

We’ve learned a band member performing when gunmen stormed the theater is from South Carolina.  Jesse Hughes is led singer for “Eagles of Death Metal.”  He went to Greenville Tech and says the band scattered to safety at the first sound of gunfire.

I have friends who are staying two blocks from one of the shooting sites.  They were supposed to fly back to Charlotte tomorrow, but American Air has announced possible suspension of flights, now the family wonders how they’ll get home.

A group of local lawmakers say they’ll go to court to stop the toll lanes on I-77.  They want an injunction to block the beginning of construction from Gilead Road in Huntersville to Catawba Avenue in Cornelius which is scheduled for Monday.

Hope you’ve got your woolies out—Eric says you’re going to need them by tomorrow.  The temperature is dropping to the lowest lows of the season.

Please join Molly Grantham, Eric Thomas, Delano Little and me for WBTV News right now!
