Sunrise in the Sandhills Good morning -- it's Tuesday July 16, 2019 --- be careful outdoors, it'll be hot! Now, here's your Sunrise News from WIOZ: An accident at the intersection of Fort Bragg and Elk Roads sent two people to the hospital Monday afternoon. SandhillsSentinel-dot-com reports a Jeep Cherokee and Dodge Challenger collided, which sent the Jeep off the road and down an embankment... Neither of the drivers suffered life-threatening injuries. Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields says there's a possible scam artist who's surfaced in the area... the Sheriff's Office has received a number of reports about a man driving a faded blue Chevy truck with Florida tags, equipped with racks and ladders. He's been showing up at area churches to beg for money, food and shelter in exchange for work. The Sheriff's Office says that any suspicious activity should be reported. A man was arrested Monday after leading a Lee County deputy on a chase that ended when the deputy's patrol car slammed into a building in downtown Sanford. WNCN reports it all started when the deputy was investigating suspicious people in a car. Then after apparently trying to run over the deputy, the driver of the car, 37-year-old Cory Dexter Fennell of Fayetteville, led him on a chase that ended when the deputy's car slammed into an empty downtown business. Fennell took off on foot but was arrested and is held on 350-thousand dollars bond. (AP) — North Carolina’s second largest school system has suspended its superintendent with pay but without saying why. A statement from Charlotte-Mecklenburg School on Monday confirmed that Superintendent Clayton Wilcox was suspended, but the statement didn’t say when it happened and it provided no additional details. Wilcox has been on the job for two years. (AP) — Governor Roy Cooper’s re-election campaign says it took in more than 4 and a half million dollars during the first six months of this year. Cooper’s campaign said Monday the total is more than twice what his campaign raised during the same period four years ago, when he was attorney general and preparing to run against Governor Pat McCrory in 2016. (AP) — A partisan gerrymandering trial began Monday in Raleigh, where election advocacy groups and Democrats hope state courts will favor them in the kind of political mapmaking dispute that the U.S. Supreme Court just declared is not the business of the federal courts. Republicans say the Democrats are simply asking courts to use “raw political power” to take redistricting responsibilities from the legislature. The trial is expected to last up to two weeks. (AP) — An 8-year-old girl was shot and wounded inside her Durham townhome. Durham police say an argument which broke out early Monday morning resulted in shots being fired. Responding officers found an 11-year-old boy with an injury to his arm and an 8-year-old girl with a gunshot wound to her back. Officers initially thought the boy had been shot, but an examination showed he had been cut by debris. The girl's injuries are non-life-threatening.

The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office says 25-year-old Sarah Hardin of Shannon, the mother of 1-year-old Jadalyn Barton, was arrested Friday and charged with felony child abuse inflicting serious injury.
