Thanks for joining us for news 12 now at 11.

Investigators are working a heartbreaking animal hoarding case in grundy county.

They came across hundreds of dogs in horrific conditions.

We want to want you that some of these images may be graphic.

Several organizaions including the sheriff's office have removed more than 200 dogs from the property.

Many of the dogs were said to be neglected, pregnant and received no medical care before being rescued.

Because of legal issues, it took years for organizations to rescue these animals.

Sadly, cases like this happen more often than you think, "i think it's fairly common all across the state and actually in the south in general.

I know for grundy county specifically we do not have animal control or a shelter.

Dogs of borrowed time is the only rescue based in grundy and were a very small one.

So there's only so much we can do in cases like this where it's a massive amount of dogs."

The dogs are being transferred to shelters across the country where they are receiving medical care.

Chattanooga police have responded to multiple "shots fired" calls tonight.

Two victims went to the hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds, but they don't seem to be connected.

Investigators tell us neither seems to be life threatening.

Police are now trying to identify the shooting scenes.

This follows a shooting last night on clio avenue where a 27 year old man was seriously hurt.

A woman is killed when a ford f-350 pulling a utility trailer collides head on with her car.

Cleveland police say it happened late this morning spring place road.

Investigators think the pickup driver was trying avoid another collision when he hit a buick lesabre.

The crash knocked the car into a ditch.

55 year old dawn schoate died at the scene.

A chattanooga man is being remembered as community champion.

Chris ramsey recently died after contracting covid.

He was a big part in the minority health fair.

Over the summer, he was giving covid testing for black and brown communities.

Mt canaan baptist church pastor dr. ternae jordan knew him for over 30 years.

He says ramsey was a mentor, leader and had been a great athlete.

"there is no question that chris ramsey had left a tremendous legacy here in the city of chattanooga.

He has touched so many lives yet mentored so many people and i'm just praying that he has touched, impact would take up the tourch, take up the mantle that chris has left us all."

Franklin funeral home is handing funeral arrangements.

One of the effects of covid-19 is a covid version of pneumonia.

Researchers say this version is more deadly than typical pneumonia.

Experts say it spreads like"wildfire" throughout the lungs.

Covid pneumonia is viral, not bacterial, so antibiotics don't help.

Viruses do their damage by taking over normal human cells apparatus or operations and produce more virus with your own cells.

It's very hard to eliminate that or attack your own selves when they've already been taken over.

The hamilton county health department has announced that all covid-19 first time vaccine appointments have been filled.

But if you need your second dose, some spots are still available.

The health department says more appointments will become available when more vaccines get here.

The covid-19 hotline will open at their normal hours starting tomorrow morning at 8.

We'll have to wait a while longer for this year's national cornbread fesitval in south pittsburg.

It was originally scheduled for the end of april, but the pandemic is pushing it back.

No official word yet how long it will be postponed.

Organizers are closely monitoring the situation.

Until then, they urge you to keep dreaming of all things cornbread.

Social media giant, twitter, has caused controversy after banning president trump and several of his allies from the platform.

The site says his tweets were inciting violence.

The washington post reports that online misinformation fell 73 percent, after the president's ban from twitter and other social media sites, citing data from research firm zignal labs.

Some chattanoogans say the move was justified to prevent more violence.

"when speech becomes dangerous, we have to do something about it.

You can't yell fire in a crowded theater, as commonly said.

So i think it is within their rights, if they deem it to be dangerous speech."

And while representative marjorie taylor green's twitter account has been unlocked following a 12-hour ban, she is now slamming the social media outlet for what she says are unfair practices in regulating speech.

The second annual mlk march in cleveland, tennessee was made possible thanks to partners like cleveland state community college, the city of cleveland, the n double a- c- p and 100 black men of bradley county.

Organizers are proud of the unity displayed during the march, especially considering the adversity the country has faced over the past year with covid-19 and political division.

A diverse group of people marched, including students, seniors, people of different races and socio economic backgrounds.

This morning's demonstration paid respect to dr. king because without his courage and leadership, events like it would not be possible.

Since i've been here in bradley county, i've watched us establish and acknowledge this day as a local holiday, especially for our local school districts.

Once upon a time we didn't honor that or recognize that and that's within my lifetime.

So i can say that's one of the major accomplishments, just getting the community to accept and respect this holiday.

There are plans to contiue the m-l-k march each year in bradley county.

Chattanooga is still providing the community a chance to honor doctor king despite covid-19.

Offices of multicultural affaits from chattanooga and u-t-c held their annual martin luther king jr. day of service, virtually.

The berke administration launched the event in 2014 to encourage residents to come together and work on community-centric projects.

Day of service looks and feels quite a bit different than previous years.

Ordinarily right now i'll be out with you in the chilly weather, cleaning up an empty lot, doing repairs to a childcare center, feeding members of our community who are experiencing homelessness, or doing an art project to beautify one of our neighborhoods.

Thousands of federal troops have descended upon the nation's capital with a mission to ensure an orderly transfer of power this week.

Natalie brand is on capital hill as we... cover the nation.

The nation's capital is on high alert ahead of wednesday's inauguration of president-elect joe biden.

More than 20-thousand members of the national guard from across the country have been deployed to help... up to 5-thousand more are expected in the city by tuesday.

Officials hope the show of force will help serve as a deterrent to another attack.

The f-b-i is screening all troops working at the inauguration.

Agents are looking for anyone with ties to extremist groups that could pose an internal threat.

"to all the people of this country: you will be in my heart forever."

First lady melania trump released a farewell video monday - another sign her husband's administration is coming to a close.

The president is expected to spend much of his last full day in office issuing pardons and commuting sentences.

One official told cbs news that as many as 100 are planned.

Here on capitol hill, the senate will begin confirmation hearings for several of president-elect biden's cabinet picks, including treasury nominee janet yellen, secretary of state nominee antony blinken, and secretary of defense nominee lloyd austin.

<noise and music as he prepares to head to washington, president-elect biden observed the martin luther king, junior holiday in philadelphia, packing boxes at a food bank.

Vice president -elect kamala harris volunteered at one in washington.

"i am very much looking forward to be sworn in as the next vice president of the united states..."

Harris officially stepped down as california's junior senator on monday.

Natalie brand, cbs news, washington.> the jeremy pruitt era is over at tennessee.

Here's rick nyman from the gatorade sports desk.

Plus, mccallie's eric rivers shoots for a milestone against boyd buchanan.

And we'll recap the crazy day on rocky top as u-t fires jeremy pruitt.

"now from the news 12 sports desk."

A recruiting scandal has brought down vols coach jeremy pruitt.

He was fired monday after the university learned of major infractions from their internal investigation into recruiting practices.

So pruitt is out after going 16-19 in three years.

Plowman:"while the investigation is continuing, the information presented to us indicates serious violations of ncaa rules."

Serious enough that the university fired head coach jeremy pruitt.

Along with assistants brian neydermeyer and shelton felton, along with seven other football staffers.

Plowman:"coach jeremy pruitt is the leader of the football program.

He is repsonsible for hiring assistant coaches and staff and making sure that those who report to him comply with the ncaa rules.

This is written into his employment contract.

What is so disturbing demonstrated by the scope of employment actions we are announcing today is the number of violations and the number of people involved."

Reporter:"do you intend to have a negotiated buy-out with coach pruitt?

Do you intend to not pay him anything?"

Plowman:"his termination was for cause, whick means no buy-out."

Fulmer:"none of use are obviously pleased to be here under these circumstances."

And athletic director phil fulmer will not be around to hire pruitt's replacement.

Fulmer announced he was retiring, adding he felt it was important for a new athletic director to hire the new head football coach.

Fulmer:"my thoughts are i am 70 years-old.

I'm not going to be the athletic director at age 80.

It only makes sense that i make that move this semester, so that a new coach with a new athletic director can implement their vision together."

For now, kevin steele is the active head coach.

The former auburn defensive coordinator and u-t grad was just hired last week as a defensive assistant.

Reporter:"when kevin steele was hired last week, was he kind of given privvy to this investigation, and did he know there was a chance that he may be serving as the active head coach?"

Fulmer:"he did not know that he might be serving as the active head coach.

He did know that there was an investigation going on."

So here's tennessee once again looking for a new head coach to try and resurrect a program that hasn't enjoyed a ten win season since 2007.

Boyd:"if you can't win the right way, you don't belong here.

If there is anyone in our athletics department in knoxville or elsewhere, who hasn't heard that message yet.

You're hearing it now."

In high school hoops, mccallie entertained boyd buchanan.

Blue tornado senior eric rivers needed just two points to reach 1,000 career points.

Needed two, but rivers says how' bout three.

That first quarter three- pointer gave him the milestone.

Rivers finished with 25 points.

Boyd's jacob shockley scores over mccallie seven footer david craig.

Shockley had ten points.

Too much rivers and big blue.

Rivers the drive and dish to boon elliott.


The bucket and foul.

Mccallie wins 55-37.

That's it for sports.

The next seven to out i could walk the greenway about cleverly
