Police in North Carolina say two people were found fatally shot in a car and two young children were found unharmed in the backseat. News outlets report that Rocky Mount police say employees arriving for work on Construction Drive around 6 a.m. Thursday spotted the bodies. Police say the children weren’t physically injured, but they were taken to a hospital for evaluation after spending hours in the cold on a night when temperatures dropped into the 30s. Police identified the people who were killed as Destiny Wiggins and Devone Brown. Police Chief Robert Hassell says family members have been notified and are at the hospital with the children, who are doing well.
North Carolina’s State Board of Education has backed an incremental approach to advance a potential teacher licensure overhaul. The board voted on Thursday with no opposition for a motion that in part envisions piloting or testing a new license and performance program before it could potentially be carried out statewide. It ultimately would take the General Assembly’s formal approval to move the idea forward and provide funding. A draft statewide plan that's been discussed would include higher instructor pay based on performance rather than years of experience. Board Chairman Eric Davis says creating pilots in school districts could help a statewide licensing remake become a success.
