Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we’re working on for 7News@Noon.

The murder trial of the man accused of shooting 3 men to death last year continues. Today, experts in firearms and DNA are scheduled to testify in Armonta Hadnot’s trial. KPLC’s Haley Rush is in the courtroom and is providing updates for noon and later newscasts. You can also read more about the trial HERE.

The search is on for those responsible for striking a Lafayette Police officer with their vehicle and dragging him along for 100 feet. It happened this morning at the Wal-mart on Ambassador Caffery. Look for more at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Did you know that more than a million people in Texas are driving without a license? We’ll tell you why at noon.

An incredible explosion caught on camera – the blast from a food truck shot flames about 200 feet into the air. Twelve people were injured. Details at noon, and you can see the video HERE.

Also today, life and death intersecting in a flash. We’ll show you how a man is grateful to be alive after a stranger pulls him from a burning SUV.

Plus, a unique garden sprouts up in Pennsylvania – sculptures that sport a colorful assortment of discarded metals parts.

Ben tells me today should be pretty much like yesterday – plenty of heat and humidity but very little rain. However, the chance of rain will increase tomorrow. How much can we expect, and what about the holiday weekend? Tune in at noon for Ben’s live, local forecast for the answers.

Remember, if you’re away from the TV at noon, you can always tune in to kplctv.com to watch us online and on your mobile device.

Have a great day everyone!
