Winter Storm That Led to at Least 5 Deaths Hits East Coast

(RICHMOND, Va.) — A winter storm that contributed to at least five deaths in the Midwest is pummeling the mid-Atlantic region for a second day, bringing snow, freezing rain and power outages.

Nearly 200,000 people were without electricity in Virginia and North Carolina on Sunday morning.

The wintry mix was also causing problems at airports in the region, including more than 250 flight cancellations Sunday at the three main airports serving the nation’s capital.

In Baltimore, a man was fatally shot as he shoveled snow early Sunday morning. Police said a 43-year-old man was outside shoveling at 4:40 a.m. when an unidentified suspect shot him in the shoulder and head. He died at a local hospital.

The storm was expected to continue into Sunday evening.
