Funerals for shooting victims begin today

Good morning, this is John Bridges in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what's coming up on 7 News Sunrise.

The funerals for the victims of Friday's shooting in Connecticut begin today.  We'll have a look at how the community of Newtown is handling this horrible tragedy.

Schools across the nation are double-checking their security after last week's shootings to see if there's anything they can do to make themselves safer.  We'll see what they are doing.

Louisiana State Police are investigating the hit and run death of a 5-year-old boy over the weekend.  Their biggest question is how he got away from a Christmas party more than two miles away.

We'll also open up the Sunrise Pet Shop to try to find a home for a pet and give you a recap of Sunday's NFL games.

Join us for Sunrise, this morning at 5.
