From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

A possible overnight shooting in North Baton Rouge, near Maplewood Park. We'll bring you the latest. Plus we'll be talking with State Treasurer John Kennedy.  The governor's administration says we have a budget surplus, but do we? A look at how the numbers work and can be worked. Plus, we'll let you know what that weekend forecast of yours is looking like. I know you have plans. And the World Series is now all set.  Please send your condolences to Lauren. Her team didn't make it.  We'll see you for 9NTM, The Big Extra Hour, and The Early Edition at 4:30 a.m.
