Police hunt for man who shot at officer

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

The morning started busy for the Baton Rouge Police Department. An officer-involved shooting has police out right now looking for the guy behind the gun. The officer wasn't injured. It looks like "Sons of Guns" will stick around for another year. The BR based show's fourth season premiered last night. This, as another studio decides to set up shop in the Capitol City.
