Deadly shooting on Centenary College campus, mass adoption event, cooking on Sunrise

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


*You will need your umbrella this weekend.  Meteorologist Ben Terry tells us that if you are going to high school football play-off games tonight, you shouldn't have to deal with more than a few sprinkles.  Saturday will be a different story, though!  Ben will pinpoint a potentially stormy Saturday forecast.


*Police in Shreveport are now investigating a shooting at Centenary College in Shreveport.  This morning we know that a man was shot and killed by police.  We plan to have a live report from Shreveport to learn the latest information on this shooting.


*We have some pretty compelling video this morning from I-10 eastbound in front of the old Harrah's property in Lake Charles where the driver of a car ran off the roadway, flipping over.  You won't believe who just happened to be in the right place at the right time to respond to the accident.


*National Adoption Day is tomorrow, but local families are celebrating in a monumental way today!  We will tell you about a mass adoption event happening in a Calcasieu Parish courtroom today to officially finalize the adoptions of 13 children.


*The Holiday House at Christmas Under the Oaks in Sulphur is decking the halls for the Christmas season.  Our special guests will be sharing a gumbo recipe in the Sunrise Kitchen to get you in the holiday spirit ahead of the the festival December 4-6 in Heritage Square.


Make it a Sunrise day!
