Join us for 7 News at Noon!

Good morning everyone!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

A deadly morning in St. John the Baptist Parish, west of New Orleans. Two sheriff's deputies were shot to death and two other deputies were wounded. It happened around 5:30 this morning in a parking lot used by workers in an area filled with manufacturing plants and refineries along the Mississippi River. We've been posting stories all morning on this situation and  you can view those HERE.

Brothers are being sentenced for bilking the federal government out of more than a million dollars in food stamps. It's all happening at the Federal Court in Lake Charles today. KPLC'S Theresa Schmidt is in court for the proceedings and will have our update.

Also today, researchers are digging up a massive discovery. Students and geologists have uncovered a 35 million year old fossil.

Plus, the Internet is a great place to sell unwanted stuff, but how can you avoid getting scammed? The Federal Trade Commission has some tips on how to avoid check scams when selling your stuff on sites like EBay and Craigslist.

In weather, Ben says we can expect a repeat forecast. Very hot, with some isolated showers possible in the afternoon.  However, Ben says we'll have improved chances for rain thru the weekend.  He's working up all the numbers right now and will have your full, local, live forecast at noon.

Remember, you can watch us online at kplctv.com and on air each weekday at noon. We hope you join us, and have a wonderful day everyone!
