Local firearms school proposes training area teachers

Good Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what we are covering on today's Sunrise:

*Following the Sandy Hook shooting in Connecticut, the conversation has changed when it comes to school safety.  One local firearms training school proposed the idea to the Calcasieu Parish School Board, hear their proposal.

*A mobile financial education program will teach money management skills to more than 400 students from area middle schools.  Find out why the students will also be matched with families.

*The search continues this morning for a suspect that shot at a police officer in the early hours of New Year's day in Lake Charles.

*Three people face manslaughter charges in the beating death of a Moss Bluff man.  Investigators say allegations of inappropriate contact with a juvenile could be the motive.

*A live interview with Anne Monlezun of Mardi Gras SWLA about the changes to this year's 12th Night.  It's coming up this Sunday and there's a lot in store!

Make it a Sunrise day!
