Good morning, Wilson!

For those of you wondering about road conditions, we’d like to update you. Depending on where you are in the city, the road conditions may be vastly different. The are some areas in the city where the streets are completely clear and there are other streets that are completely covered in ice from curb to curb.

The best advice is for everyone to stay inside if you can and do not travel until closer to lunch time to allow the sun and road crews to get roads in better condition.

Have a great snow day! See MoreSee Less

At 2:55 p.m. Officers responded to the hospital in reference to a female that had been assaulted with a firearm. She reported that the incident had just occurred in the wooded area across from Wilson Medical Center. Officers responded to the area. Officers were able to quickly develop a suspect in this case. The suspect has been taken into custody. Investigation is on-going. There is no threat to the community at this time. A press release will be published shortly. See MoreSee Less
