Charlotte resident John Cappuccilli got a phone call he wasn’t expecting Thursday morning. The auto shop where he had left his 2010 Mazda Speed 3 the night before was contacting him to let him know something had happened to his vehicle. Cappuccilli said he went to the auto shop and learned his car had been damaged. The back windshield was blasted out with shards of glass littering the surface of the car. The side of the car had also been damaged by BBs.
Police have released the names of three people who were killed in two separate shootings in Charlotte late Tuesday night. The first shooting happened around 11:05 p.m. on Eastwycke Place Drive in east Charlotte, where a man, identified by police as 29-year-old David Sean Lindsay, was killed. Police say they responded to a 911 call about the shooting and found Lindsay with a gunshot wound sitting in a car parked in a yard. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Gastonia City Council member Todd Pierceall says there have been multiple shootings in his neighborhood in the past few weeks. He says he recently had to get down and hide from gunfire just outside his own home. "Kind of behind those trees, yeah,” Pierceall said as he pointed to the site just down the block where he heard several gunshots last week. “You could tell it was probably several different calibers from the noise it was making. It was, 'pow-pow, pow-pow.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
