Making Headlines:

Calling for justice: Several hundred protesters gathered outside a Baton Rouge store overnight where police shot and killed a man early Tuesday morning. The big question: what led to the shooting? The public hopes that'll be answered at a news conference scheduled for today.

Up for grabs: No jackpot-winning ticket was sold in the latest Mega Millions drawing, increasing the prize to an estimated $508 million. Tuesday marked the 34th time the jackpot has rolled over without a winner. 

Under investigation: Police are investigating a suspicious fire and vandalism at a historically black church in St. Louis. Officers responded to a building alarm at Greater St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church and found the building was on fire, the back door had been forced open, and that there was "hate-related" graffiti outside the church.

Milestone birthday: Happening today, people all over Pope County will celebrate turning 200! Bicentennial celebrations are already under way.
