At least one person is under emergency treatment .. after gunshots were fired outside a Roanoke County restaurant just before dawn.
Roanoke County police say two people exchanged words inside the Waffle House restaurant near I-581 and Peters Creek Road .. and that led to gunfire outside.
Police are not releasing any further information at this point. We do not have word on what led to the shooting, or the victim's condition.
The slain Afghan Vice President is being remembered in Afghanistan and in the U-S as a hero and a patriot.

Assassins gunned down (kah-DEER) Qadir and his son-in-law yesterday.
Qadir was a key figure in United States-backed efforts to bring stability to Afghanistan.

About 700 passengers were cleared out of the Tom Bradley International Terminal for more than an hour, as police investigated a suspicious bag.
The bag was found near a Thai Airways International ticket counter.
An L-A-P-D spokesperson says that writing on the outside of the bag said, "hunting rifle," which made airline officials suspicious.
The evacuation comes just days after an Egyptian national opened fire inside the international terminal. The gunman killed two people before being killed by a security agent.

Several army veterans are fighting on a new battleground ... raising money to help the former president of the National D-Day Memorial Foundation.
Richard Burrow was charged last month with four counts of fundraising fraud.
But vets from the 29th Division Association are standing behind him - trying to help Burrow pay his legal bills as he fights the charges.
None of the charges against Burrow indicate that he used money raised for the memorial for personal gain... but that he lied about donations to secure millions more and to boost his reputation as a dynamic fundraiser.
Burrow's trial is scheduled to begin September third in Lynchburg.

It's a move to help get downtown Covington's economy rolling.
The city has received a federal grant to help turn two former railroad passenger stations into office buildings.
The 150-thousand dollar grant comes out of a Congressional program to fund the rehabilitation of transportation-related structures.
It's the third straight year Covington has received federal money for these types of projects.
The first train station was built in 1890 and the second one came in 1915.
By the early 1990s, both buildings had been abandoned and left to rot.
The new office complexes will house the Chamber of Commerce and Historical Society, among other groups and businesses.

An unusual auction wrapped up in Lexington this weekend.
[VO-NAT - :24+]
More than one thousand lots were on the auction block from the estate of Jack Roberson.
Roberson was an avid collector of antiques, and one of a kind items for nearly 70 years. He died more than a month ago.
The house at 111 Jefferson Street was orginially built in the late 18th century as a Methodist Church, and stored Roberson's thousands of antiques.
So far, there's no word of what will happen to the house.

More than 20 years ago, Leland Smith's interest in a special make of automobile revved into high gear.
He's been collecting Studebakers ever since, trying to make sure an automobile with a unique history stays on the road.

At this show, Smith showed off his 1963 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk, equipped with air conditioning, overdrive and power steering. High tech for the time.
Recently, Smith and a friend took to the road, driving the 665 miles from Franklin County to South Bend, Indiana, the home of Studebaker, to compete in a car show just for the fun of it.
