Happy Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*A lot of people in Kinder are upset this morning after dozens of trophies from Kinder High School ended up in the school's dumpster.  We'll show you the images sent in to us overnight as we wait to hear what led to the disposal.

*An overnight shooting in Lafayette sends a police officer to the hospital with gunshot wounds.  We'll tell you the chain of events that led to shots being fired and a car chase.

*We're talking hunting and fishing this morning with outdoor guide, Hal McMillin.  He'll talk about upcoming teal and deer seasons and how which baits fish are biting.

*If you're looking for something to do this weekend, we've got the rundown for you!  From the Stars & Stripes Classic Car Show and Boudin Wars in Sulphur to the McNeese State University football game, find out when each event is happening.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry tells us our rain chances are on the rise for the weekend.  He'll break down when and where we can expect to see some rain and track the next tropical system.

Make it a Sunrise day!
