Jennings police looking for man wanted for attempted murder

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck in the KPLC Newsroom filling in tonight for Cynthia. Here's a look at what we're working on for Nightcast.

A Jennings man is wanted by police for attempted second degree murder after firing a gun at a person. No one was injured, but police are still looking for suspect Caleb Newman.

Plus, it was said to be a top priority for Governor Bobby Jindal – reduce the size of state government, by slashing some of Louisiana's excess boards and commissions. So how's that working out? New numbers revealed today show there's still plenty of work to do.

Also, "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson is speaking out publicly for the first time after the A&E Network decided to suspend him for controversial comments made to GQ Magazine.

And clear skies and cooler weather continue in the forecast. Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton has all the details.

We'll see you tonight at Ten for these stories and more. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
