We have some breaking news to report
this morning...


Roanoke County police are investigating
an officer- involved shooting.


They say no officers were
injured...but one man was taken to a
hospital.


The investigation will affect your
morning commute if you normally take
Route 220 South.


The southbound lanes of 220 are
closed just north of the Franklin
County- Roanoke County line.


Traffic's being detoured onto the
northbound lanes.


It's supposed to stay that way at
least until mid-morning.


New 7's Bob Grebe was on the
scene and we'll have more on this story
coming up in our 6 o'clock half hour.

They say everything's bigger in Texas
but it's HUGE for Hillary Clinton.



(SOT HILLARY CLINTON): "HOUSTON - WE


REALLY DO HAVE A PROBLEM."



She needs the state - along with Ohio -
to get back in a race that seems like


it's slipping away....



Her campaign just got a big boost with
it's best fund-raising month yet ,


raking in 35-million-dollars in
February.... It's money that can
immediately


make a difference after being outspent
by Barack Obama.



(nats rally)


But his campaign says it did even
better. They haven't released the
numbers


yet but some believe they may have rung
up as much as 50-million dollars this


month.



Even with his poll numbers rising,
delegates piling up, and the cash
rolling


in - Obama insists he's not writing
off his opponent.



(SOT no font BARACK OBAMA on plane


153810): "I AM NOT, I AM NOT.
REMEMBER


NEW HAMPSHIRE?"



But he's not talking much about her
these days. Yesterday he didn't even


mention her name as he focused on the
slumping economy....Blaming the man


who's got the job he wants -- and the
likely republican nominee.



(SOT BARACK OBAMA video as incoming):


"GEORGE BUSH HANDS OUT BILLIONS OF


DOLLARS OF TAX CUTS TO THE WEALTHIEST
FEW FOR EIGHT LONG YEARS AND JOHN


MCCAIN PROMISES TO MAKE THOSE SAME TAX
CUTS PERMANENT."



Hillary Clinton's problem is that - for
all the debates and differences - she


and Obama have pretty similar positions
on all the major issues.



She's been trying to win on
policy...but that may not be


enough....in races


that look more and more like popularity
contests.

An initial concern of absbestos

An initial concern of absbestos
burning turned out to NOT be a threat.
