Fire captain speaks out about racial slur allegation

Fire captain speaks out about racial slur allegation

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

He was standing guard at a war memorial as he was gunned down and killed. We'll bring you the latest on the terrorist shooting in Canada as they try and put all the pieces together. On a much lighter note, some good news for former LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger. You will probably see a lot of him this Sunday.  And Gerron Jordan takes you to the Greater Baton Rouge State Fair. I've heard there may be pig races so prepare for television awesomeness.  We'll see you for 9NTM, The Big Extra Hour, and The Early Edition at 4:30 a.m.
