Overnight shooting in Jennings, plus today starts legislative session

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

*Jennings police are investigating a shooting from overnight.  The first calls came in around midnight.  Details are not available right now, but there has been confirmation of an active crime scene.

*The 60 day legislative session begins later today in Baton Rouge.  The biggest issue facing the legislature will be the proposed tax changes.  We'll have a preview of what you can expect.

*Florida authorities are hoping good weather will improve their chances of tracking down a sailboat that may be carrying two kidnapped boys.  Find out their Louisiana connection and the description of the boat that they might be aboard.

*The U.S. is bracing for another missile test by North Korea any day as the situation remains tense on the Korean peninsula this morning. 

*On a much lighter note, we'll be opening up the Sunrise Pet Shop to introduce you to an animal in need of a loving home!

Make it a Sunrise day!
