Bon Wier pastor charged with murder in shooting death

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

*A Newton, Texas pastor has been charged with murder after a shooting outside Belgrade Baptist Church in Bon Wier.  We'll tell you what we know about the unfolding story this morning.

*An unusual alligator sighting in the water near Veterans Memorial Park draws the attention of big crowds.  See the video of the gator as Lake Charles police worked to relocate it.

*We should start seeing a decline in giant salvinia on the Calcasieu River.  Find out what's being the plant's slowdown in growth.

*A wedding boat party to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of a young couple ended tragically on the Hudson River when their boat crashed into a construction barge Friday night.  Two people, the bride-to-be and best man have both been found dead.

*Will we see rain this week?  Meteorologist Ben Terry will have our pinpoint forecast plus the projected path of Hurricane Flossie.

Make it a Sunrise day!
