Making Headlines:

Under investigation: The search is on for an "armed and dangerous" suspect in a homicide investigation after a shooting in Sikeston left one person dead and injured another man last night. One person has been arrested.

Overnight fire: A family escaped a house fire in Scott County early this morning. A two-year-old and the child's mother suffered minor smoke inhalation when a fire broke out at their trailer on County Road 405.

Walk out: Mound City has just one police officer this morning, after the rest walked off the job in support of their chief. This comes after a dispute over the chief's part-time status.

Deadline looming: Millions of taxpayers face a midnight deadline Monday to file their tax returns. There was a three-day delay beyond the traditional April 15 deadline because Friday was a legal holiday in the District of Columbia.
