The Learning Center in downtown Roanoke is under investiagtion. We'll tell you why when we return.
and a Hostage situation ends in Washington State after the would be robber releases his hostages and shoots himself.
A five hour hostage standoff at a Washington state bank is over.
The would-be robber shot himself in the stomach after his last
four hostages escaped.
Two other hostages were released earlier. All six are safe.
The standoff began when a robbery attempt went awry.
A police spokeswoman says police negotiators got the robber to agree to lay his weapon aside, but she could not immediately say what led to the gunshot.
The 34 year old gunman is in serious condition-
A day of deliberations with no verdict in the case of
former Army Sargeant Major Gene McKinney.
Eight jurors deliberated for nearly seven hours today without reaching a decision.
The Army's former top enlisted man faces more than 55 years in prison if convicted on all counts in the sexual misconduct case.
After weeks of bickering, Virginia's House of Delegates voted unanimously to pass the car tax relief and school construction bill its Finance Commmittee crafted earlier this week.
The bill now faces tough scrutiny in the Senate.
Lawmakers have until Saturday to finish work on the bill.
But the House stopped a bill COLD that would change the way schools deal with children and non-prescription drugs.

The Downtown Learning Center's in trouble.
The director's been fired.
Bills have gone unpaid.
The agency that accredits the day-care center on Second Street in Roanoke says a number of things need to be corrected.

But parents have been told that there's money missing and the rent's not been paid.
Board Member Johnny Miller confirms the center takes in more than 30-thousand dollars a month, but he says there's not enough money to pay the bills.
Asked whether money is missing, Miller said: "not sure what the money situation is. That's one of things we're trying to find out," he said.
He says there's no reason to believe- -at this point- -that the Downtown Learning Center will have to close.
Lynchburg officials still aren't sure what to expect when anti-abortion activists converge on the Hill City this Friday.

But Tangier's Town Council voted 6-to-nothing to turn them away.
The town's mayor says "cursing, drinking, and sex" in the script conflicted with the town's values.
(( Virginia tourism officials here in Richmond say Tangier and Chincoteague lose at a minimum 10- thousand dollars a day in food, lodging, and related costs for a feature film crew.))
