Search for Rayne teen considered armed and dangerous

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

*Gunfire in Rayne leaves one teen wounded and another wanted by police.  Investigators say a 17-year-old was shot in the stomach and now they are looking for the alleged shooter 18-year-old Kyler Sinegal.

*Tougher rules for sex offenders in Sulphur.  The city council unanimously approved an ordinance requiring all sex offenders to pay an annual $200 fee and first time offenders to pay a one time $600 fee.  Find out how that money will be used by law enforcement.

*President Obama will address the nation in prime time tonight on action in Syria.  We'll tell you where the majority of Americans stand on this issue today and how Louisiana lawmakers are reacting.

*It was the first year of Louisiana's new teacher evaluation system known as "Compass."  While most Southwest Louisiana teachers made the grade, was the system fair?  KPLC's Haley Rush will look into the results.

*It's a dream come true for a Grand Lake teen with an unforgettable story of overcoming loss.  In this morning's Healthcast, I talk to Cierra Theriot about how she has found light in a world that she cannot see.

*The tropics are heating up.  Meteorologist Ben Terry has a look at Humberto and Gabrielle and any potential risks to our area.

Make it a Sunrise day!

    Sinkholes in the road are an issue all over Lake Charles and a pretty common sight in the Downtown area. Drivers usually have to dodge the cones, especially on Division Street.
