Good morning!

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

Another shooting incident in Lake Charles to tell you about today. This time, Lake Charles Police responded to the 2200 block of 10th Street, after a large disturbance led to gunfire. Two people were shot, and three were arrested, including a juvenile. We have pictures of the 2 adult suspects HERE.

Also today, a love story untold for 70 years. It's a tale of two sisters in France who have never forgotten the Cajun paratrooper who turned up lost on their doorstep on D-Day. You can read more about it HERE.

Plus, two best friends celebrate a momentous milestone together. The women both turn 100 this summer! The pals will tell us their secret to a long, happy life, and you can read more about their friendship HERE.

Ben tells me we'll warm up to around 90 by the noon hour. That daytime heating is expected to spark some late afternoon showers and storms. Will that repeat on Friday, or will we have a dry day? What about the weekend? Check out Ben's live, local forecast at noon for the answers. You can also see the latest weather conditions HERE.

And you'll want to check THIS out – a pair of kayakers paddling around some whales when one of the massive creatures slides under their boat and lifts it above the water! What a ride! 

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

Have a great day everyone!
