Police have arrested and charged a man with a homicide that happened last night in northeast Charlotte. Officers responded to a domestic-related call of assault with a deadly weapon on Dogwood Avenue around 9:30 p.m. Officers found 29-year-old William Rann Jr. with an apparent gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have charged 29-year-old Michael Smith with murder in Rann’s death. Police believe the two men are related. It's the 66th homicide in Charlotte this year.
Officers shot and killed an armed man last night at a business in Monroe. The Union County Sheriff's Office says a deputy tried to pull a white Pontiac Bonneville over around midnight because the taillights were out. The driver sped off and eventually pulled into the parking lot of the Dairy Queen on Roosevelt Boulevard. The sheriff’s office says the man then got out of the vehicle armed with a long gun and ran into a nearby Metro PCS, which officers then surrounded.
The Charlotte City Council meeting following the fatal police shooting of Keith Scott was full of strong emotions. There was also a lot of sharply and loudly worded critique of council. Julie Eiselt was on the receiving end of those angry words a year ago. She’s an at-large city council member and chairs the council’s committee on public safety. What do you think the community as a whole has learned a year after the shooting of Keith Scott? I don’t think we are a community as a whole.
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".
