| Sex offender stopped on school campus|
Supply, N.C. (WWAY) - A man registered as a sex offender was picked up at a Brunswick County school yesterday with the help of new technology. James Fowler was arrested at Supply Elementary School when he attempted to attend an awards ceremony hosted by the school.
Fowler, a registered sex offender, was arrested by a School Resource Officer after his license alerted school officials he was illegally on the school campus.
All visitors are required to check in at the main office of a public school building through an electronic verification system. The Ident-A-Kid system then logs visitors in and out, provides them a temporary identification sticker, and scans their drivers license or state identification card in order to cross reference the national sex-offender database.
That cross reference led police to arrest Fowler.
The school system says the visitor management system is just one of many other aspects of a comprehensive safety and security program

| UPDATE: Man now faces murder charge after shooting victim dies|
SUPPLY, NC (WWAY) -- A Supply man facing attempted murder charges in a weekend shooting is now charged with murder after deputies say one of the two people he shot with a rifle outside his home has died.
This comes after William Calvin Steward, 36, of Supply, fired shots into an occupied vehicle Friday night during a party. Sheriff's deputies say the shooting happened around 11 p.m. at Steward's home on Eastfield Lane, where the two people shot were attending the party outside of his home.
Deputies arrested Steward Saturday on several charges including attempted murder, discharging a weapon into an occupied, moving vehicle, and one count of maiming without malice.
Deputies say Steward is now charged with the murder of Iqueisha Tequila Monique Collins, who has died since his arrest. They say Steward shot both Collins and Deontray Bryant, who is still recovering.
Steward is behind bars in Brunswick County under no bond.

| ONLY ON 3: Leland residents want to put the brakes on town parking ordinance |
LELAND, NC (WWAY) -- You won't find many cars parked on the street in Leland.
The town requires you to obtain a permit days in advance or else find yourself with a $50 ticket.
That's why some folks are speaking out against this town ordinance.
After a period of inactivity, Leland police are back giving out parking tickets to cars on the street.
There are no signs warning drivers of the law.
Leland resident John Guntner is not happy about it. He said, "No one has taken the trouble to read the law that they're enforcing," Guntner said, "I don't know how you can get much more contemptuous than that."
He wrote a letters to the mayor and the D.A. expressing his frustration.
The town Code states in part, "No parking areas shall designated by yellow curb markings, no parking signs, or other traffic control devices which indicate that parking is prohibited in the locations and under the circumstances described by the signs."
This portion of the ordinance led Guntner to ask, "Since everywhere else in North Carolina parking is allowed anywhere there is not a sign prohibiting it, how can you expect people to know they can't park on public streets in Leland?"
He has written a letters to the mayor and district attorney in hopes of fixing this.
A group of Leland women called "Singles and More" meet regularly to play the tile game, Mahjong.
They are frustrated with the handling of the ordinance.
One of the group members, Mary Webb said, "They built this big community...and they're making it so hard for us to get together."
Member Ellen Casey brought up another concern, "If you have a terrible thing... a funeral, that's not an anticipated thing" She said, "You have to think... I have 20 cars parked in front of my house, I just lost a family member and now I have to remember that I have to remember to go onto the computer and get permits from the police department," she said, "It's whack!"
Carpooling and bike riding are how they've managed to avoid the new wave of ticketing.
They went on to say they'd like the town council to take a look at the statute and figure out something different.
Town council member Bob Corrison says they're doing just that. This morning they voted to lower the $50 ticket to $15. They're also offering to reimburse those ticketed since January. The council has scheduled a public meeting for April 29th to solely discuss the parking issue. He asks that citizens come out and offer suggestions so they can "Make Leland a great place to live."
Corrison says the town ordinance has been in place for years but it's gone unenforced. He says they are seeing stronger enforcement now because of safety issues on the street.
