Area pastors hold vigil to stop the violence

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for 7 News Nightcast.

The Barbe Bucs didn't come home with a state title, but they still have a lot to be proud of. KPLC's Sports Director Drew Shirley will have highlights and reaction from last night's game in the Superdome.

Plus, one week after  three homicides in Lake Charles a local group of pastors is holding a vigil to stop the violence. The vigil starts at 5:30pm at the Lake Charles Civic Center. KPLC's Gerron Jordan will be there and have this story.

Also the voters have spoken - Congressman Charles Boustany will be returning to Congress for a fifth term. Boustany beat Jeff Landry in the runoff for the 3rd Congressional District. Tonight hear more from what Boustany hopes to accomplish in his next term.

And the weather continues to be warm but changes are on the way. Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton is in tonight and will have all the details.

We hope you'll join us for Nightcast following NFL Football. Until then remember we are always online at kplctv.com and your mobile device.
