2007 Halloween fatal hit & run remains unsolved - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

2007 Halloween fatal hit & run remains unsolved

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for Nightcast.

Nearly six years after a fatal hit and run on Ryan Street, the case remains unsolved. It happened on Halloween night 2007 in front of OB's Bar & Grill. Tonight, we take a look at the cold case.

Plus, a Shreveport man is in custody after shooting a Waffle House employee. We'll have that story from our sister station in Shreveport.

Also, a Calcasieu District judge ruled last week in one of three claims in the lawsuit the Lake Charles Stevedores have filed against the Port of Lake Charles. Tonight, we're learning that attorneys for the Stevedores have taken the next steps in their next claim. KPLC Gerron Jordan has this story.

And one Calcasieu school is changing things up in the cafeteria. As KPLC's Haley Rush explains, school administrators hope the healthier choices will follow students home.

It's just four days until Halloween. And if you're looking for a SCARE - there's a whole host of events going on around Southwest Louisiana. We took our cameras to "The Lost Hollows" and survived to tell the story you'll see tonight.

We enjoyed some great weekend weather. The rain returned today, but will it follow us into our work week? Meteorologist Cedric Haynes has your forecast.

Rebecca Cade is on the Sports desk tonight and will have more highlights and post game reaction of McNeese's victory over Nicholls State.

Nightcast starts following NFL Football. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
