North Carolina power cut by shooting could come back earlier than planned


Workers work on equipment at the West End Substation in West End, N.C., on Monday, after an attack on critical infrastructure has caused a power outage to many around Southern Pines, N.C.

Duke Energy said it expects to have power back Wednesday just before midnight in Moore County. The outages began shortly after one or more people breached the gates and opened fire on two substations.
