Charleston Police officials said murder suspect Alfred Pittman was arrested Thursday evening at CAMC Women and Children's Hospital. They said the hospital was shortly on lock down while the arrest was made.


Beckley Police have released the photos of three men they believe are responsible for the murder of Shawn Rucker.
