You may need the umbrella early this morning. Some showers are sticking around from yesterday. But Brian’s First Alert Forecast shows the day should improve, with less rain and more sun.

Making Headlines:

Search for shooter: Authorities are looking for a male gunman after a Shreveport police officer was killed in the line of duty.
