Thank you are right that make it commodity. -- one dead one injured in western canal place hotel. -- heard about this over the weekend. Four people from out of town apparently. Had a dispute instead of hotel room at the Weston on the seventeenth floor. One ends up shooting another recording the penalties then gets into a standoff with officers when they arrived you respond to the gunfire. And stay in that taking his own life. In that hotel room tees -- four out of towners visiting New Orleans. After it was over with and the swat team laughter began interviewing people at the Weston an system. How this is gonna affect their decision to return to new warm ones for another vacation -- Someone was dead and someone was seriously wounded in the hotel where they were staying the swat team had to be called -- And believe it or not every single person I talked you said well. I'm glad it happened it's sad but I can't keep us from coming back to New Orleans and got a lot of this happens in every city or hey that's just the world we live in today. So my question for you and I want to detect an 87870. And we just become completely. -- to this sort of violence with the news cycle when it is with our ability to get news from so many sources so quickly all the time we hear about the shootings in places it would not supposed to expect them. That happened all over the country and all around the world that we become desensitized. To it. To appoint or drivel like and are right now as the dead guy -- seriously wounded swat team is at the hotel. And that happens that's a big deal and that was really the attitude people that was no big deal is that not a big deal anymore to us and is that good or bad text me. And it's 78 -- and he meanwhile your forecast. Mostly sunny to kick off this Monday morning hot and humid of course by the after being -- a few scattered downpours look for a 30% chance today. Dropping down a 20% chance overnight and for Tuesday a 60% chance for rain pretty good chance the season downpours that -- highs right around ninety. And for Wednesday were backed down to a 40% chance of a price of 93. For the pinpoint forecast winner I'm meteorologist -- tell. And actually started out just a few degrees cooler thanks of the rain that we've had over the evening and nighttime hours partly cloudy at the airport in Canada 76 degrees it is muggy 91% relative committees -- -- clear. And 73 degrees and -- on at the early edition of WWL first news by the way we were telling you about the national days and that it is. According to national. Day calendar dot com that today is. National. Raspberry. Home day BO MB of mature from pronouncing it right of attack and it's and it's and he says that the frozen dessert usually containing ice cream. And formed in layers in a mold are right that sounds pretty good I don't not a now the snow but after like the one. As we go to sports -- WWL. And we count up to the West Virginia mountains the sea with Steve -- domicile about as the saints. Yet rated play their second pre season team game right here in the war. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We gotta be mindful that. There's a transition here it's not. Everything right away over -- Panthers can't -- king appears to have overtaken -- and -- -- Carolina's number four wide receiver the top three -- Kelvin Benjamin Jericho Cotchery and Jason a bond king ran a four point 440 at the -- bind with a quality ten foot three broad jump at just over six -- 187. Pounds LSU football held its media day and at the center of attention was the top recruit in the nation freshman running back letter warned that isn't shy and has some lofty expectations for himself this season. For my first three I thought they are resident. All American on -- his -- And hopefully -- again. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah I'm Dave here in New Orleans and will be back right after this talk about their sport that doesn't expect much or want my -- Season does he's here -- has Steve about that live from West Virginia Helena -- Also talk about Kevin ward juniors dying on the racetrack. And Tony Stewart and the wheels the car and kill them. With Steve thank him about that -- at WW well I am left them and they've known in New Orleans Steve gallery in west Virginia's Steve first pre season game behind us the second one next week in each American 25 minutes. More sports talk about that as -- send them home to the dome for pre season action right now the you -- a sound kind of fallacies letter Cornet from yesterday's media -- it is not expected much this season has. -- not confident at all of his abilities I think it's great you know expect that from yourself. I would say before that though you kind of have to seniors ahead -- you right now on the depth chart that'll probably get more of the carries and Kenny Hilliard and Terrence McGee. But -- miles has been touting him you know leading up to training camp comparing -- -- the likes of Michael Jordan so -- now. You know I wouldn't I would not X. You know wouldn't doubt him. Achieving some of those ability here it goes a look at. All SEC all American and analyze the Heisman hopeful he expects me all that in his freshman year. Well hey yea you would you like the confidence and got about came through that would be great at a very serious. What do you think's gonna happen with this investigation Tony Stewart -- sounding like police and not looking at criminal charges against him after he hitting killed Kevin ward junior when. Junior got out of his car and was pointing at Stewart on the racetrack after Stuart apparently bumped him and made him spin out. In what some bad blood between his -- and do you think and the legal system gets more involved. You know I I'd do just because of the fact I think the legal system will get more involved because to me what I see in that video. A full -- coming out of his car into traffic as you know some people been saying it's not the smartest. Thing in the world obviously but these other car seem to be able to avoid him and them and going up to Stewart's car. You can tell he revs the engine and the car kind of fish tailed in toward sucking him under the vehicle and ultimately killing him. I got to imagine that some kind of spectacular manslaughter charge could be involved there but I'm no I'm definitely not a legal expert I do think. We read a sheriff said there was no intent. One of the sentence Tony Stewart's career yes or -- is Tony Stewart's career over. I don't think so I think he definitely has a strong enough legal team to fight this but I -- think he is responsible. In some way shape or form he's not completely it was -- a complete accident today. -- -- back wicked -- that meant more sports here at WWL AM asked them that now -- the early edition of WWL first news it's August the eleventh that's 2014. And its monetary yep we're gonna get through its you know and I are going to lead the charge everyone can. -- us and together we'll form a group team trudged through Monday. As a unified group determined to make it locking arms and going over the hill absolute. -- now now. Oh social tedious celebrities. Flights for us as an amazing though I'm not really amazed by well and I sort of think about it I'm like OK as the united in the -- -- anecdote reprieve in order to decode it wouldn't have. Mark talked about. And and I expected a cam comparable lips like NC people on and have cosmetic procedures to make their lips look filler Fuller -- love that. Pump out their lips during a -- he boob jobs second -- because. You're on FaceBook. Twitter any of those you can see so many self fees are taken arm above where they make -- either. Bolting cleavage it's apparently important to a girl when she takes the sultry. Give me your Botox to tighten things up a little but that there are things 10% increase in nose jobs between 200270000. To its -- nose job -- -- it was already pretty popular but now you Martha. -- -- -- -- -- Plants and that's for men and and a 6%. Increase in -- surgery. In my eyelids looked a little rupiah myself -- amendment that doctors fixed yeah yeah in hasn't anything about face plants and that. Demagogue drop a couple of ground right it would just to get started you know younger and -- younger and younger people Adam Botox and sellers and man and we haven't even talked about the boom in but doc. On follow of course you know with the card dash Leann got to have that in Brazil we all but yet bagel bots that are at the Armenian. And in now and again -- halo with -- big Biden. -- a lot of people a lot snake -- That's that's a totally I don't think that as it was social median estimate it takes office and bought. Although they do that nearest thing where they turn kind of sideways and they can deal anyway. So again younger and younger people getting plastic surgery. As of soltys and social media in general and while. Who would've thunk it -- time we will area yes indeed. The time we live and is one where pizza loving turtles are dominating the box office are born they are at -- you're right. -- teenage mutant ninja turtles -- big slice out of the box office. 65 million dollars in the opening weekend Steele got to the studio -- I would go to sequel. Another candidate in 2016. Will be another TM NC. There. -- -- -- -- On opening weekend I mean that's just a little tip of the iceberg -- absolutely plus all the marketing inventories and and the dvds and everything else again they'll be -- the tournament marvels comic book adaptation guardians of the galaxy. Is in second place after opening last weekend the top spot argument 175. Billion hung -- into the storm third hundred foot journey forth. And Lucy. It. The box office I've been asking folks to text that he says the -- than yours. About this violence now I went to -- I went yesterday morning during a swat standoff. To the west of New Orleans hotel nice quote yeah. One of the finest in the city. Not a place where you expect to hear about gunfire and during the red dress run weekend you know this the hotels were packed. We also -- dirty -- night bringing people land and so he wasn't. He wasn't cheap this weekend to stay and a fine downtown new regardless not know but for people from out of town. Staying on the seventeenth floor of the west and have a domestic dispute. One ends up shooting another -- difficulties. That person wounded and taken to the hospital the shooter eventually cops -- takes his own life. People I talk to at the hotel. One after another after another. I said hey you know does this bother you is this gonna keep me from coming back to New Orleans dumping -- people. Are gonna hear this news the men are -- if you can be shot at one of the nicest hotels in New Orleans. I'm never coming back to this point this is too scary this is crazy. But even before they knew the details one person after another missing aunt and happens -- The violence is everywhere is as part of life it is what it is at work on back. We got that back on -- they probably says you know out of towners this job in the cities before over -- as whatever and that's really was that that the overall attitude that it's it was what church. And in that happens so why -- man so I was just I'll have gone back. I guess our society has become numb. To a lot of the violence and I think part of it is the 24 hour news cycle and the way we yet and yet on our phones on computers -- radios televisions everywhere. And we hear every day about another. Dramatic shooting somewhere. Think that maybe at some point it's too much drama in our lives and people are gone well. Yeah centrist thing but -- arid areas it's well I'm gonna impact may so I just go on and that's the most of the people attacks estimates 7870. It is what it is. One text message today that it needs -- but someone does that. Breaking ranks with all the other text messages it's it is a big deal especially if you wanna raise children and good environment where it's not acceptable. Act violently. Now the president says it's no it is New Orleans I expect nothing less well these weren't normally in these were tourists. Who's started shooting each other. -- -- -- -- -- once started shooting and -- and -- shot himself -- and -- June Ninth -- -- last night and made him perhaps another tragedy but. I don't know how much people are affected by one tragedy after -- it's too much tragedy too much drama and they hear about all of itself. OK well we'll continue this discussion that we'll talk yet about twenty minutes more -- -- Chris Miller joins us birthday it's wolves at Charles parish today as well crystal tells about that. And now. Uh oh god let's go live in direct to the pinpoint forecast senate they do it more demanding. -- meteorologist Laura but now. Lovely lady in red this morning that's right bright and early Monday Wright's time and get out. Quake back to school again for more kids should never went more well thank you for wearing red lit us up on Monday morning. Apple up the red miniskirt that again own a hot day red miniskirts in T all right and today will be -- and behind again human again and. It's gonna be all beef up along with the flight -- to it this afternoon in some scattered downpours around today but it really more than heat 93 this afternoon and it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- For Wednesday for -- do you sense lightly drive and probably more so models they may be over the weekend we're showing a dry front maybe not so much that. It's a -- fry exactly so don't feel better. Well it depends on where you are -- -- links you know we -- -- -- as noticeable here but North Shore areas will likely notice that dry -- era -- -- all right nothing on on the tropics now you know there's a -- way -- in the -- it just came across the coast of Africa and kind of pushed off -- we have a long time to watch and have to get through a lot of dry year and that -- otherwise golf corporate and western Atlantic all vary quite. Like it I love it I want some more of an -- take heed and humidity is on as we don't have -- -- I'm not gonna complain too much about the summer weather on its hurricane free I'm a happy man. At that. If you heard about this police this bank robber in New York the police are looking for players at different. Every robbery. He hit at a different baseball no well he wore a baseball cap once he wears a cowboy hat. One of them looks like a ladies had one of almost like it may be a Mexican had another look like it may be. I don't even know what it is like a wrestling match. He would want -- -- a sombrero edge history anywhere is a different hats every robbery happening in this and that well apologies there. It's day dons a range of wacky head pieces as he commits. Bank robberies over the course of the past two and a half month they've got pictures here of at least six different robberies he's committed with different and at least he's making it interesting yeah and yeah. I would -- no -- anybody comes with kind of a random pat you're I mean it's they're gonna catch. You know yanks on walks in with a Kubiak you'd think they'd -- suddenly become suspicious right. Ago -- Public not just a case that's the guy like I think maybe his plan was too weird different hats and he couldn't be spotted -- talent that he may have done the opposite. A fact there -- I want bonds got a wig gets hats you -- those yankees so outlandish that now people are just waiting to see what he's gonna we're back -- so now maybe it leads to his capture he keeps it up. I hadn't thought about that that's a good point and that person you Wear hats do. I Wear I Wear a lot of baseball cap space spot when you -- and when -- continues -- on the beach you know where it had tickets to -- a lot of hats -- but I don't baseball can't get on having them -- I don't have -- -- he you know when it above the pack -- the sun -- when -- going to be -- that would really con -- where -- audience and not a baseball. Right I have nothing sun hats for the beach and then you know at around town not an act -- when I -- in and out of place then and having that. And I went slightly conceal your high yeah. These so you don't usually opted out they are all the and usually it's it's it's hard. Now I can't be heard yet now she be wearing makeup and repairs are pretty rough yet I am not. I usually throw -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- baseball cap every now that I wanted to be a cat person I've got to ask you hats like when I'm traveling. You know like different hats in their -- where. And I think others that look cool but that I can never find a reason to where it doesn't feel right -- my kids think it's funny -- them but got to I don't have kids thankfully I don't want to be -- you know that somebody could Wear you know lake. I have French or a Greek fisherman's -- We're. He had the special type of blood that the labor but to cool but maybe -- -- -- would be if it takes a special person like -- and two -- are -- I know it. Understood thank you look for a it might but -- I've been derived from the ten point forecasts that. I'm 51 -- at -- Steve -- in West Virginia -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You don't realize how much football you don't know what to you get to a campus like this. And I'm just continuing to develop and get to the stage ready to be that knows a lot of folks thought if you have been knowing a couple of the big stage like that notion of. Rory McIlroy won his second straight major championship and fourth of his young career rallying on the back nine in the PGA championship McIlroy shot three under -- in the final round beating Phil Mickelson by one stroke and finishing at sixteen under par and Eric Gordon -- basketball insiders dot com that he expects the -- -- make the playoffs this -- -- everyone stays healthy Gordon is still just 45 years -- but his only injury history has limited him to just play in -- 116. The last three years since coming to New Orleans today -- -- on sports -- hear from Sean -- and players following today's practice -- what adjustments to the saints need to -- after their first pre season game from -- -- in West Virginia Steve -- WW -- boards. They've -- New Orleans Steve -- West Virginia the saints coming off of Friday's pre season win have a lot to work on what do you see him focusing on this week in practices that you're ready to come home to face the titans -- the dome. -- in my three areas of improvement are turnovers. They stress that all campaign didn't create any. Against the rams hopefully against the titans in the superdome that'll be a different story. Also stopping the run. Saint Louis have pretty good success on the ground averaging four point seven yards per carry against the saints defense and another -- shored that up. As well as up penalties there were ten penalties for the saints for a 104 yards in the game cut -- to be expected go to first pre season game. Dust in the rust awful little right there so and -- that number. Goes down again buckle down most of the backups playing today in Gaza to be encouraged by the running game for the saints and overall absolutely execution thanks he would touch in fifteen meant to do more sports here on WW. There are ready -- to the violence one person tax okay crazy happens everywhere sadly it doesn't worry me at all. What does -- is what's ahead for the next four hours of fun -- doctors got that. My system warm up next it'll at which a -- or not but the saints and rams and knows openly and just plain old happy days -- talk about it. Shootings drive by shooting apparently about it the whole family about it and reports that act opens fires in. Now we'll talk about the latest on you rise in Israel Hamas. And also a time my parents actually. Colin their kids while driving. Causing the distraction Molly -- -- I don't I don't use a -- when your driving -- I call you exactly and and more. More more more on Monday coming up on WW.
