Two men are facing charges after a shooting in Danville. Just after 1 o-clock Thursday morning police responded to a breaking and entering call at a home on Morris Avenue. They found 28 year old Thomas Edward Jones on the front porch with a gunshot wound to the head. Authorities say when 29 year old John Jermaine Jackson and his girlfriend arrived home, they found Jones coming out of the house. Jackson's girlfriend grabbed Jones, and a struggle ensued. Jackson then shot Jones. He has been charged with malicious wounding. Jones was charged with breaking and entering.

Traffic is up and running again on Business Route 220 in Martinsville after the road was closed for several hours yesterday.
Just after one yesterday afternoon, a mechanical problem with one of two generators at the Martinsville Hydroelectric Dam caused a turbine to spin out of control.
The road was closed for more than five hours, for fear the spinning turbine might shatter, and throw shrapnel into passing traffic. A sluice (slew-is) gate was eventually closed, reducing the flow of water and the spin rate of the turbine. No one was injured, no customers lost power, and traffic has been restored to Route 220 Business.
