New information about Navy Yard gunman

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

*The Washington, D.C. Navy Yard remains closed today as the FBI investigates yesterday's shooting that killed more than a dozen people, including the alleged gunman.  This morning we are learning more about Navy veteran Aaron Alexis and the grudge he may have had against the military.

*A U.N. inspectors report confirms the use of chemical weapons on a large scale in Syria last month.  The report says rockets filled with sarin nerve agent were fired into Damascus, killing 1,400 civilians.  

*Back at home, plans are moving forward with the sale of the historic First Baptist Church in DeRidder.  The Beauregard Parish Police Jury will use the church as a temporary court building when the old parish courthouse undergoes multi-million dollar renovations.

*A different kind of graffiti has popped up in downtown Lake Charles.  We'll tell you how you can share your thoughts on what you want to accomplish before you die - for the town to see!

*Attention soldiers and veterans!  You are invited to a job fair at the Fort Polk Warrior Community Center later today.  Find out what's in store and what companies plan to hire.

Make it a Sunrise day!
