Good Evening, 'm Jean Jadhon.

Roanoke is losing jobs in its downtown business district.
DOUBLE BOX=Jean/Len;


Len Besthoff reports those affected work in one of the city's most "high profile" buildings.
Len, What's going on?
ANCHOR=Len


Jean we're talking about the 21- story First Union Tower.
LIVE=Len/Newsroom;
SUPER=@Len1;


By next year there will be very few, if any people from First Union working in the landmark building that bears its name.
News-7 has learned that First Union will close its Mortgage Service Center in downtown Roanoke.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Roanoke/File Tape;


The bank confirmed that by next fall it will transfer 120 jobs there to its main mortgage center in Raleigh.
First Union calls this an efficiency move.
It opened the Roanoke service center in 1993 with 200 employees.
(-------------)
LIVE=Len/Newsroom;


First Union employees who don't want to transfer to Raleigh will be offered other jobs with the bank, mostly at its operations center in Roanoke County.

So while the net job loss in the Roanoke Valley may not be that great, the downtown Roanoke area will still lose around 100 office workers.
(QUESTION: WILL THE BUILDING REMAIN THE FIRST UNION TOWER?))

The Sheriff's department says 35- year old Wilbur Gilbert Scearce and his wife, Tammy DID have a history of domestic violence.
Wilbur Scearce fatally shot himself near the couple's Ringgold home.
It all began around 8- 30 last night when Scearce ended a high speed chase with authorities when he pulled into his driveway.
Scearce apparently got out of his car and pointed a gun to his head.
Sheriff's officials later discovered the body of 33- year old Tammy, in the trunk.
Officials negotiated with Scearce for about four hours before he turned a gun on himself.
