9News Early Edition from Matt Williams: May 15, 2012 - WAFB 9 News Baton Rouge, Louisiana News, Weather, Sports

I-Team: Money and Politics

 


From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

If Sunday night's string of shootings in the area wasn't bad enough, there was another one late Monday night. This one happened in the Oak Park area of Baton Rouge. There is a scary warning out of Mississippi. Authorities there are saying be careful if you get pulled over along the interstate. Two people have been found shot to death in their cars along the road. Is there someone posing as a cop to get people to pull over? 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.
