Grand jury considers charges in deadly nightclub shooting

It's expected to be a busy evening at the Baton Rouge Metro Council meeting, with an agenda that includes several big ticket items like bridge replacements.  A councilman is also expected to introduce a resolution for big changes to the city bus system.  WAFB's Nick Foley and Andrew Nomura will have live team coverage on 9News at 5.

A grand jury is evaluating evidence in the shooting of a man outside a nightclub in 2012 by a security guard.  The family of the man says it was murder, but detectives say it was self defense.  WAFB's Greg Meriwether is following the story and will have more tonight on 9News at 6.
