Caught on tape: Men purposely launch fireworks into store

Happy Friday afternoon, everyone! We hope you're having a great afternoon!

Here's some of what we're working on this afternoon:

First at 4: three men launch commercial-grade fireworks into a tire store; these fireworks burn in excess of several thousand degrees. Arson investigators have it on tape, and we'll show you at 4.

Also, we'll share video from police in S.C. of an officer being taken hostage. It's unbelievable how this criminal, who officers eventually subdued, fought to get away. You can see it at 4.

And new for you a 4:30, it's not unusual for bears to go nosing around, looking for food. But one man found that he had a bear frequenting his back yard, and he caught it on a night vision camera. We'll show you this afternoon.


Speaking of wild animals getting too close to comfort, what would you do in this situation? You are on vacation, enjoying a safari, when a cheetah jumps into your vehicle! You'll hear about some folks who experienced just that in just a bit.

And at 5, we'll let you know what Tyler ISD says about the second confirmed case of whooping cough in one of its schools. We'll let you know what the rules are about when to send a child who has been sick back to school and more.

We'll also tell you about a victory for some students in a small Texas town who wanted to display banners and signs displaying encouraging scriptures at football games and other events. You'll hear about it at 5.

And new at 6, we'll review unemployment numbers just released, we'll tell you what you need to know if your car was one of those that was covered in tar on Tyler's west Loop 323, and we'll give you the latest West Nile numbers, too.

All of this, plus your latest sports and weather, will be here for you as we livestream on, or watch on tv at KLTV and KTRE.

We'll see you soon!
