Good morning!

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

The investigation continues into last night's shooting of a Sulphur woman who officials say tried to run over a Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputy.   Look for that story at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Also today, myths on social media are spreading about who is more tempting to mosquitoes and how to avoid being bitten. We'll hear from a mosquito expert who dispels the myths and explains how you can actually repel the pests. You can read more about it HERE.

Plus, a viral video of a cat rescue prompts one group to provide oxygen kits for their entire community. We'll show you how this trend is catching on in many places.

And get this, there's a neighborhood that's been overrun by feral chickens! It's a situation that has a bunch of folks crying “fowl!” Check it out at noon.

Ben tells me to look for an increase in clouds by midday, and some scattered showers and storms this afternoon. Will there be more of the same on Thursday? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answer. You can also check out the latest weather conditions HERE.

KPLC Sports Director Seth Lewis will have some sports answers for us as he reports live from Southland Football Media Day.

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!

    Stop by Kroger in Sulphur and you'll probably come across Brian Conner. A dedicated and loyal employee who's been with the company for 22 years.  "I love bagging groceries," said Conner.  On Wednesday, Conner was extra chipper, not just because he loves his job but because his birthday is on Thursday, April 26.  Customers at the grocery store knew that and Conner couldn't escape all the hugs.  Conner's customers love him so much that a group o...

    If Trump's tax plan is implemented, certified tax attorney, Rusty Stutes of Lake Charles, says it will mean a lower tax bill for businesses, big and small.
