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!

    DeQuincy Elementary students watch eclipse with special telescope

    While many people across the United States watched today's solar eclipse with special eclipse glasses, some students at DeQuincy Elementary had a different option.  Smiles were on many faces of the third graders at the school, who were able to view the solar eclipse through a special Dobsonian telescope. This was all thanks to a local amateur Astronomer, Blake Gaspard.  Gaspard heard the school was interested in safe activities for the eclipse so he off...

    We only saw around 70-percent coverage during the eclipse, but that didn't stop residents and students from getting hyped up about it. At Sam Houston High School, Sara Blankenship's Biology class shifted gears to learn about this major event, a total solar eclipse. The first time we've seen one across the US in a while and 9th grade students like Allison Hull and Ben Martin are excited. “I think it’s really cool because 99 years ago was the last total one which is what ...
