BRPD officer involved in shooting with attempted robbery suspect

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

We have a crazy packed show for you this morning. Many of us are still ringing ourselves out after all that rain. Did you get hit? Interested in being on Big Brother? We'll talk LIVE with Shelly Moore, the Prairieville woman who made a big splash last season. Nitro Jam returns to the State Capitol Raceway this weekend. We'll be climbing into a dragster this morning. That, and a look ahead to tomorrow's big Road Trip to Pointe Coupee Parish, specifically New Roads. Don't forget you can catch our 9Online webcasts three times throughout the day. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
