Convicted murderer accused of assaulting Bertie Correctional Officer

The NC Department of Public Safety says a convicted murderer serving a life sentence at Bertie Correctional Institution is accused of assaulting a worker there.

A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for Bertie, Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Edgecombe, Halifax, Hertford, Nash, Northampton, Pasquotank, and Perquimans counties.

Authorities say police officers in North Carolina shot and wounded a man who fired his gun at them and missed during a domestic dispute.

Officials say water filters installed at six homes all removed a potentially harmful chemical made at an eastern North Carolina plant.
