Shots fired at Fayetteville mall on Black Friday

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – Authorities say gunfire erupted at a
North Carolina mall as holiday shoppers gathered, though there are
no reports of any injuries. No evacuation was ordered, but several
shoppers left the mall and some smaller stores closed.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office says detectives are
looking for two suspects after gunfire rang out at Cross Creek Mall
in Fayetteville early Friday.

The first shots were fired around 2 a.m. outside the mall near a
food court entrance. Investigators say several more shots were
fired after one of the suspects ran inside the mall.

Investigators say no one with gunshot wounds has shown up at
Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, when
merchants can make 25 to 40 percent of their annual revenue.

Shooting rampage death toll rises to 6

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) – A 17-year-old boy shot during a rampage
in Greensboro has died, bringing the death toll from the massacre
to six, including the shooter.

Guilford County Sheriff BJ Barnes says Richard Brian Suttles
died Friday, five days after he was shot by his aunt, Mary Ann

Four other people were killed by Holder, including her two sons
and her 8-year-old niece. She killed herself after the rampage. An
adult victim, Holder’s married lover, was shot in the shoulder and
is expected to recover from his injury.

Police aren’t certain what prompted Holder to carry out the
massacre. Her affair with the married man was coming to an end, but
despite her leaving two notes taking responsibility for the
killings, investigators aren’t sure why she did it.

UNC Exhibit looks at textbooks role in history

Friday, November 25th, 2011

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) – The books read by North Carolina
schoolchildren have long been a source of contentious debate, on
topics ranging from slavery to evolution.

A new exhibit at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
looks at the role textbooks have played in state history since the
early 1800s.

Items in the exhibit include Civil War-era textbooks published
in Greensboro and Raleigh that defended slavery, and two textbooks
banned in the 1920s for teaching the theory of evolution.

The co-chairman of the state Textbook Commission, Charles
Gaffigan, says there are fewer controversies today, but he says
North Carolina still has an important role in textbook adoption,
since it’s one of the country’s largest buyers of school books.

The exhibit at the Wilson Library will run through Jan. 31.
