Good morning!

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

The city of Boston is under lockdown as a search for the surviving suspect in the marathon bombings continues. The other suspect was killed in a gun battle with police overnight.

Both are suspected of killing an M.I.T. police officer on campus late last night, then stealing a car at gunpoint and later releasing the driver unharmed. NBC is continually updating this story, and you can stay informed by checking HERE.

Meanwhile, a Texas law enforcement official says 12 bodies have been recovered following that fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas. Hundreds were injured in the blast that destroyed dozens of homes and businesses. You can access the latest on this developing story HERE.

Also today, a look at how the ammunition industry is going green. See how they are getting rid of the lead by introducing an alternative bullet.

Plus, a high school prom gift is causing some controversy. Students went to a prom last weekend where the take home gift was a commemorative shot glass!

In weather, the rain has left the area, leaving cooler temperatures in its wake. Ben says there's a real chance at shattering an old record set for coldest temperatures tonight. Find out how cold it will get and how our weekend is shaping up during Ben's live, local forecast.

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