TEMA/Peg Broadcasting News Thursday February 19, 2015

Tennessee remains under a State of Emergency as the weather-related death toll continues to climb. At least six people have died from hypothermia statewide: one each in Roane, Sequatchie, Shelby, and Hamilton Counties; two in Henry County. Four others have died in motor vehicle accidents caused by icy roads, and in Hickman County a dialysis patient died, unable to get to treatment because of the severe weather. The preliminary total of weather-related deaths now stands at 11 in Tennessee. Officials fear we could see even more weather-related fatalities as another wintry blast hits the Volunteer State. A Winter Storm Warning for ice and snow is in effect from noon Friday to 9 am CST Saturday with the potential for 1 to 2 inches of snow and up to a half inch of ice. The National Weather Service is urging everyone to get prepared for possible power outages.

 


Defendant in Tennessee armory shooting case will not testify
News Channel 9/AP Thursday February 19, 2015

A Tennessee National Guard recruiter charged in an armory shooting is not testifying at his federal trial. News Channel 9 reports that Amos Patton told a judge Wednesday that it was his decision to not testify in his trial on charges that he tried to kill four superiors in a shooting at the National Guard armory in Millington on Oct. 24, 2013. Prosecutors say Patton pulled a gun from a fanny pack and started shooting at fellow Guard members after he was removed from his job in a disciplinary meeting about a misconduct investigation. Patton's defense attorney argues Patton was trying to commit suicide, not kill his superiors, in the armory before he was grabbed by a Guard member and was wrestled to the ground, causing him to begin firing wildly.
