"Time for change," says Lake Charles residents after recent murders

Good Tuesday morning to you! Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*The triple homicide in a Lake Charles community park has taken its toll on the victims' families and friends. As they try to move forward, a group is now taking action and organizing a community takeback.

*A manhunt is underway in Texas for the killer or killers of a Kaufman County district attorney and his wife, who were gunned down in their home Saturday. We'll have the latest on this search.

*Funeral services for Lake Charles architect, Joe Champeaux, will be held tomorrow afternoon. He died over the weekend. Champeaux was a city planner during the Jim Sudduth administration and helped build the boardwalk during Mayor Willie Mount's term.

*The U.S. is stepping up its military, moving at least one warship closer to the North Korean coastline. The move follows weeks of belligerent rhetoric from North Korea, including threats to use nuclear weapons.

*There are alarming new numbers about the growing number of children with autism: now 1 in 88 children are diagnosed, including 1 in 54. I'll take you inside a local autism support group to show that an autism diagnosis does not mean that life is put on hold.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry is tracking a storm system that we will see in the area tonight.

Make it a Sunrise day!
