Good evening,

Authorities are investigating after a 34-year-old man was shot in Future City, Illinois, just outside of Cairo on Tuesday evening, Oct. 7. Sheriff Tim Brown said Christopher Nelson was shot multiple times. Todd Tumminia will have more on this story, coming up on Heartland News.

The Mt. Vernon Police Department is also investigating after a house was shot several times on Tuesday just before noon. Giacomo Luca will have the latest on this story on Heartland News at 9 and 10.

The St. Louis Cardinals tagged Clayton Kershaw in the seventh inning for the second straight time, riding Matt Adams' go-ahead, three-run homer to a 3-2 victory over the Dodgers and a fourth straight trip to the NL Championship Series.

Speaking of Cardinals, Manager Mike Matheny will be the keynote speaker in November for the first annual Arrow Leadership and Success Summit. It will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 17 in the Show Me Center. You can click here for more information.

Former SIU student, 21-year-old Derrick Burns appeared in court on Tuesday. He's accused of mailing disturbing threats of beheadings, bombings and other violence to the Carbondale campus.

It's a problem people of all ages are dealing with as the weather changes: allergies. For many people, October means stocking up on tissues and allergy medicine. According to experts, the up in allergies is thanks to the harsh winter. They say it pushed back the seasons, making fall allergies last longer.

Another staple of fall? Haunted houses! They're popular attractions in October, but fire officials say not all of them have to be safe. Attractions in city limits operate like any other business and must meet minimum safety requirements and fire code, according to Cape Girardeau Fire Inspector Brian Shaffer.

The Bollinger County Health Center held its annual flu clinic on Tuesday, and offered options other than the normal flu shot. The center  provides a mist that the nurses gently spray into the nose. Rae Daniel had the story, you can click here for more.

In national news, New York police say they have an open investigation into allegations that veteran TV actor Stephen Collins molested a teenage girl in the early 1970s. Two cable television networks said on Tuesday they would not broadcast scheduled re-runs of Collins' series “7th Heaven.”

The U.S. economy may be strengthening, but the outlook elsewhere is far less encouraging. On Tuesday the International Monetary Fund trimmed its forecast for global growth. A surprisingly weak report on industrial production in Germany, Europe's biggest economy, added to the concerns.
