Triple homicide suspect in custody, community outraged over deaths

Good Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*The man that Lake Charles Police Chief Don Dixon referred to as "the most dangerous man in America" is now in police custody for the shooting deaths of three people and injury of a fourth.  Find out what led to his arrest and why the community is saying enough is enough.

*A family in Vinton is looking for answers after two of their cats came home with serious injuries, apparently the result of pellet guns.

*Final word should come today from the FAA on which airport control towers will be closed.  Lake Charles Regional and Chennault International are on the list to potentially get funding cuts.

*The newly renovated Millennium Park in downtown Lake Charles is set to open tomorrow!  I'll be live from the park from 6:00-7:00 this morning ahead of the grand opening festivities.

*There's tons of events in store this weekend - from the Palm Sunday Tour of Homes to Bark for Life and Live at the Lakefront!  We'll take a look at what's happening in our Sunrise Day Planner.

Make it a Sunrise day!
