Arrest made in early morning armed robber & shooting

Good Evening,

Lee Peck here in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on this Sunday.

From shootings to highway fatalities, local law enforcement has been busy this Labor Day weekend.

Two separate early morning shootings send two men to jail on various charges. We'll have the details.

Plus, two women are dead following two separate crashes in Jeff Davis Parish. Also, it could have been much worse in Vinton after a motorcyclist failed to negotiate a curve. He survives, thanks to the quick response by local emergency officials.

And it's designed to create more economic development south of town. KPLC's Gerron Jordan has an update on the McNeese Street Extension Project.

It's not uncommon for Labor Day weekend to be HOT. Tonight, we'll show how dry conditions can be a recipe for disaster. Meteorologist Cedric Haynes also has your complete forecast.

And two big wins by Southwest Louisiana's favorite teams this weekend. KPLC's newest addition to the 7 Sport's team, Rebecca Cade, makes her debut on the Sports desk. She'll have your McNeese and LSU highlights.

We'll see you tonight at ten for Nightcast. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
