It's WLOX News Director Brad Kessie.  We were glued to the police scanner this afternoon, listening to Harrison County deputies track a suspected murderer.  What caught our attention in the newsroom was scanner traffic about a gunshot to the head.  Moments later, I talked with Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara.  He told me the gunshot came from the suspect's gun. And the person wounded was the suspect.

If you've been to today, you know the murder suspect is Marty Saucier.  He allegedly killed his mother, his father and his brother.  Danielle Thomas is covering this triple murder.  She has the latest from the crime scene on WLOX News at 6:00.

When should a downtown Ocean Springs bar mute its music?  That's one of the questions being debated at Ocean Springs City Hall today.  The city is analyzing its noise ordinance.  Neighbors near downtown want entertainment venues to turn down the volume.  Proprietors worry muting their music could silence their businesses.

Doug Walker listened to today's noise ordinance debate.  You'll hear what he heard on WLOX News at 6:00.

They celebrated at Moss Point High School this afternoon.  Teachers and administrators learned the school system got its accreditation back.  Moss Point no longer has a school district on the brink of an education crisis.

Patrice Clark was inside the Moss Point High auditorium when the good news was announced.  Look for her story on WLOX News at 10:00.

I just got off the phone with Waveland Mayor David Garcia.  His city has a meeting Thursday night about the budget.  And I wanted to know how he would describe the city's current financial state.

"It's looking good," the mayor told me.  Garcia said through the tough cuts made last fall, his administration had eliminated most of the debt it inherited.

"We're getting better all the time," the mayor said.  "We're not where we'd like to be.  We've still got to move cautiously."

Garcia does not anticipate any additional layoffs.

"We've got ourselves out of that problem," he told me.  "We're pretty stable."
