Good morning!

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

Three people are dead following a shooting incident last night at McMillian Park on Goos Boulevard in Lake Charles. Lake Charles Police say it happened around 11:30 last night.  A press conference on this incident will take place this afternoon at 4 and KPLC will be covering.  Be sure to check out our website and mobile apps throughout the day as this story develops.

What would you do if you found a snake in your house? I'd probably pass out, but one woman tried to kill the snake with fire…and well, it didn't quite work out. See what happened HERE.

Also today, some ground breaking research could affect the millions suffering from Alzheimer's.  Researchers say it could lead to a drug to great or even prevent the disease.

Plus, even in a rebounding economy, many workers say they don't think they can afford to retire. A new survey reveals why many Americans are not confident about their savings.

A bit of a chilly morning, but Ben tells me we should be in the upper 60's to near 70 this afternoon. He says we'll also see the return of humidity tonight and tomorrow, and the increased warmth will spark a few showers tomorrow. Just how much rain can we expect on Friday and over the weekend? You can get all the answers from Ben's live, local forecast at noon. Also don't forget the 7 Storm team will be at the Walgreens in Jennings today from 4 to 7 p.m. to help you program those weather radios.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us today, and have a great day!
