Making Headlines:

Officer involved shooting: Kentucky police shoot and kill a man holding a long knife. New this morning, we have video from the officer's body camera. The incident remains under investigation.

Shake, rattle and roll: Parts of southeast Missouri got a little shake early Tuesday around 4 a.m. when a magnitude 2.6 earthquake rocked the region. According to the USGS, the quake was centered five miles west northwest of East Prairie and about seven miles southeast of Sikeston.

Happening today: Firefighters in and around the Carbondale community will hold a training seminar on removing victims trapped in small, confined spaces at Southern Illinois University Carbondale this morning. The training will take place in the steam tunnels beneath the campus.

Horrific accident: According to reports, no state or federal agencies inspected Verruckt, dubbed the 'World's Tallest Water Slide,' prior to Caleb Schwab's death. That has one certified amusement ride safety inspector saying it's time for Kansas to change their inspection laws.
