Woman shot to death while sitting in car

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Baton Rouge homicide detectives were working late into the night and that's never a good thing. A 23-year-old woman was shot and killed while she sat in her car. We'll bring you the latest from what was understandably an emotional scene. We'll try and lighten it up considerably by taking you on a bit of a scavenger hunt. The annual Attic Trash & Treasure sale is about to hit. Have you ever been? Do you have some trash you just know is treasure? We'll bring you a LIVE look at what you might be able to find hiding among the aisles. (Maybe Greg and Dianne) The roadways have been looking good so far this morning, but take a look at our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras to make sure your route is still clear and if you run into any backups while driving, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
