City cuts ribbon on new Millennium Park

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for 7 News at Six.

Lake Charles Police are still investigating the triple homicide at McMillan Park. Two people have been arrested, including the man police believe is the primary suspect. We'll have the latest.

Despite the weather, hundreds of people helped the City of Lake Charles cut the ribbon to reopen Millennium Park. We're there as the community enjoyed the park they helped rebuild.

Plus, today was the start of early voting for the April 6th election. KPLC's Olivia Vidal was at the polls for the better part of the day and has a rundown of what's on the ballot.

Also McNeese State University laid out the welcome mat for prospective students. The MSU Admissions and Recruiting Office gave tours and answered questions about what the campus has to offer.

And how do you like this weather? Meteorologist Cedric Haynes has your forecast.

We'll see you tonight at six for these stories and much more. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
