CPSO & Calcasieu educators participate in active shooter drill

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on today.

In light of recent tragedies, preparing for school shootings is a reality for local authorities and educators. KPLC's Haley Rush was there as educators from across Calcasieu Parish participated in a very realistic drill.

Also, folks in Westlake were up early walking and running to help combat childhood cancer. KPLC's Erica Bivens has this story.

Plus, horses and cowboys take over the Civic Center as the Lake Charles Black Rodeo returns to town.

We'll also show you how reality stars from A&E's Duck Dynasty are venturing into the world of art.

In Sports, we're live from Cowboy Stadium as the Pokes take on West Alabama.  

And we've seen some rain across our area… we'll check in with Meteorologist Cedric Haynes to see if we can expect any more.  

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