WCBI NEWS AT TEN 12/07/18

A drive by shooting in lee county leaves a woman dead.... now the search is on for the gunman.... thanks for joining us tonight... i'm quentin smith... lee county coroner carolyn green confirms the victim is 66 year old annie walton... sheriff jim johnson says it all un-folded around three o'clock this afternoon at a mobile home on 181 county road 45 in the palmetto community.

Johnson says a car stopped in front of the home, and fired multiple shots inside the residence.... the sheriff says a total of seven people were inside the home during the shooting.... they range in ages 70 to three years old.

In all, three people were shot... one victim was treated at the scene.... another was was taken to north mississippi medical center.... walton was also transported to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Right now, investigstors are looking for the four suspects responsible for this violent act... "this is not a situation where this is a stray bullet, or someone was target practicing or hunting and the bullet went into this home, this home was a direct target and the individuals inside were the purpose of the shooting, there are multiple gunshots fired inside this home."

Walton's body is now being sent to pearl for an autopsy.

Investigators were on the scene for several hours collecting evidence....and expect to release more information on this shooting later this weekend.

What started out as a traffic stop in clay county..... ends with two people being carried away in handcuffs..

39 year old kennie chandler and 30 year old magean poss are now facing drug charges... clay county investigators charged chandler with possession of methamphetamin e.... while poss is being charged with possession of paraphernalia... the duo was stopped along highway 50 west in the cedar bluff area ... bond for chandler is set at 5 thousand dollars.... and bond for poss is just under 500 under dollars.... this investigation is still on-going... governor phil bryant says he's confident lawmakers will approve a pay hike for public school teachers.

Bryant has proposed a 50- million dollar pay raise for teachers all across the state.

The governor says it's important to pay teachers a competitive wage.

He says improving state economy has provided a good opportunity to pass a pay raise for teachers.

"if you look at the revenue numbers coming in we are about 150 million dollars more than we had to spend last year, just now the budget is about 45 million dollars more by end of november than we had projected, so that's 45 million dollars in real money we going to put into hopefully a two year, 50 million dollar pay raise for teachers, it's time to do that again."

Governor bryant also says he wants to pay the state's correctional officers more money... and he will also recommend no cuts to any agency's budget.... the legislative session begins in january.

It's never too early to start thinking about the next election season... that's how the mississippi state extension center for government and community development feels.... the department recently developed a new site featuring videos and other resources on all of the needed requirements for local elections...... our victoria bailey explains.... if you are thinking of throwing your hat in the local political arena, there's now information available, in one place, to help you finalize that decision.

"this is an online resource to help local elected officials who are people interested in running for office, learn more about making that decision.

About the qualifications they have to meet.

Also for voters when they're trying to find out who the candidates are and what they're voting on.

They can go there and find out about that," the website's called election prep 101 and features videos from mississippi's secretary of state delbert hosemann's, print resources on local election requirements, as well as the legal requirements for running.

"wanting to put your name on the ballot and doing the job, is one thing.

But you have got to have ideas, you've got to be sincere in what you want to do," clay county sheriff eddie scott says this information will be helpful, because there's so much more to holding office that's not written anywhere.

"you look at the job description, get the qualifications, and but that's the very icing on the cake.

When you get into the job, the details of it.

Even the description is isn't going to tell you everything about the job.

In my experience 75% of the job is straight from the heart.

You've got to really want to get in there and make a difference.

You have to care about your community.

The people you serve, always looking to make it a better place to live," msu extension center for government and community development instructor jason camp says he hopes this information will be helpful to voters too.

"the local elected officials are probably the most important because they're closest to the people.

They are the people who are making the decisions that impact your daily life.

The roads to drive on, the schools you send your kids.

So, we want to make sure we have good quality candidates running.

We want to make sure were removing the unknown for those candidates and we think this resource does that," to find out how you can visit election prep 101 visit our website at wcbi dot com.... first look stinger first look friday night: areas of rain continue along with northeasterly winds between 5 and 10 mph.

"so we found out about this around mid summer when the family was notified and that's kind of when in nas meridian got involved so was here corresponding with mr. wade and obviously expressed a desire from the family for the navy to be involved and we couldn't be more honored to be a part of this obviously bringing a service member home to his final resting place is a very important job for us and something we take very seriously."

Fellow service men and women filled calhoun city's pryor funeral home ready to welcome this sailor home.

"i can't express how important that is for those of us who have been out to sea and off serving you know everybody that's participating today has been in the navy we've been at war this whole time and so for those of us who have gone off to war and come home you know we've had that opportunity to come back and it means a lot to us to bring a fellow shipmate home."

Follow @wcbiweather on facebook, twitter, instagram, and snapchat welcome back.... breast cancer welcome back.... breast cancer survivors have no way of knowing whether their cancer will come back or spread to other organs.... researchers at the university of southern california are developing a new blood test to change that.

Cbs's ileana diaz reports.

Faviola rodriguez beat breast cancer...twice...she is back in the lab to get her blood drawn.

This time...it's to help other patients.

Some women participated in research and studies that helped me so i thought why not let's do it.

Researchers at usc's keck school of medicine are using her dna to create a blood test that would predict which breast cancer patients are at risk for having their cancer come back and spread to other organs..

There may be some residual cells are beyond any detection tools today nats dr. bodour sahlia says developing this liquid biopsy test is critical..

Researchers extract dna from patients and they test it for five years to see if cancer returns&amp; and if the patients who donated the blood also have recurrence.

We want to do a better job of being able to determine which women remain at high risk for metastasis to develop this new blood test researchers are recruiting 500 breast cancer patients from early to late stage.

Faviola says arming women with information is how you beat the disease.

If you know it's going to come back then you're going to be as aggressive as you can.

She also says the peace of mind this test could offer would be a huge relief for survivors.

They will be given to children ages 5 to 12.

"every child for christmas should have a new bike.

When i was six, i remember my first bike.
