Good Wednesday evening and happy Hump Day!
We're continuing to follow a shooting in Madison we've been working on all day. A man was shot outside of the Carrington Cove Apartment complex in Madison at around 1 o'clock this afternoon. The shooting victim, who has yet to be identified, remains in serious condition at Huntsville Hospital tonight. WAFF 48's Shumuriel Ratliff has been on top of this story all day long. She's learned that Madison police say the apartment complex is one of four possible crime scenes and there could be anywhere from 2 to 4 suspects in the case. Shumuriel will continue to work to fill in the blanks in this case and have the very latest at 10.
With the federal government shutdown, employers across the country and here in the Tennessee Valley no longer have the on-line background check system E-Verify to see if prospective employees are in this country legally. WAFF 48's Sarah Navoy is digging deeper in to what employers here in North Alabama are doing in the meantime to make effective and legal hires.
And in my weekly Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers report, a burglar hit a local business, stealing around $3,500 worth of lawn care equipment such as lawnmowers, weed eaters, and chain saws. We'll have the surveillance video and the important details of this overnight burglary. It's your chance to fight crime and pocket up to a thousand dollars.
We hope you'll join us tonight on WAFF 48 News at 10.
