CPSO investigating fatal shooting outside local nightclub

Good Evening,

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

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal shooting outside of a local nightclub. Officials said it happened overnight at The Keg off Highway 90. Details are limited at this time, but we're told they are looking for one suspect. We hope to have more information by news time.

Also another series of accidents on Interstate-210 causes traffic to be tied up for hours. Police said they worked four separate wrecks involving multiple vehicles, including two Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's units.

Plus, more on that giant sinkhole in Assumption Parish, where residents are taking matters into their own hands after being evacuated from their homes for months. They've now got the attention of California-based environmentalist Erin Brokovich – the woman portrayed by actress Julia Roberts in the self-titled movie that won Roberts an Oscar. You'll hear what she had to say about the issue.

And we saw our share of rain today – but can we expect more? Meteorologist Cedric Haynes has your forecast.

We'll see you tonight at ten. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.

    This is the first time the group has rehearsed all together. This weekend being the only real preparation. For music director Bob Marcantel, he's only a little stressed out. “My choir members came up to me after the first rehearsal and they said this music's hard, and I said, 'Would you expect anything less?' ” said Marcantel.
