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

Funerals for the two women shot and killed while watching a movie in Lafayette are set for today. Jillian Johnson and Mayci Breaux were shot last Thursday. More information on the shootings can be found HERE.

Meanwhile, a Shreveport state representative has drafted a bill to require all movie theaters statewide to use metal detectors. Is she getting any support for this idea? Find out at noon, and you can read more HERE.

A new cosmetic procedure is making it easier for patients who are seeking a little facelift. Also, patients can be awake throughout the procedure. Learn more about it at noon.

Plus, a golf course volunteer tees up with an alligator to save a neighbor's dog. At noon, we'll tell you why she risked her life wading into knee-deep water. You can also see more HERE.

In weather, our rain chances will decrease to just a 20 percent coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Highs today will surge into the middle 90s with a heat index up to 105. The highest heat index values today will be across the northern and central portions of Louisiana, where a heat advisory is in effect. This advisory includes Vernon Parish for heat index values briefly exceeding 108 later today. How long will this pattern last? Meteorologist Ben Terry has the answer during his live, local forecast at noon.

Remember, if you're not near a TV at noon, you can watch us live on our mobile news apps for Apple and Android devices.

Have a great day!
