Jennings Police looking for "person of interest" in shooting

 

Good Afternoon,

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

A shooting last night in Jennings sends two people to the hospital. Jennings Police are now looking for a "person of interest."

Plus, a traffic stop this morning on I-10 near Jennings lands a Florida man in jail.   

Also, Fat Tuesday may be a little more than a week away – but the Mardi Gras festivities have already started in Southwest Louisiana. Tonight, we have team coverage as KPLC's Monica Grimaldo heads down south to Cameron for a chicken run, and Haley Rush travels west to Vinton for their parade.

We'll also introduce you to a 7-year-old girl, who is using her birthday to help those in need. KPLC's Erica Bivens profiles "Shoes From the Heart."

We begin our weekend with a cloudy start. But will that change? -- Meteorologist Zack Fradella has our weekend forecast.

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