Coming up on Good Morning East Texas...
A Smith County manhunt is currently underway for the suspected shooter in a Thursday afternoon altercation. We'll hear what happened from a woman who says she witnessed everything first hand.
Plus, 24 people including community members, UT Tyler and TJC students are boarding a plane for a trip to Turkey. But in early January TJC school officials told us they weren't sure if the trip would happen. For the last several years, Dr. Manoucher Khosrowshahi was the project guide, but in December he was arrested for theft, fabricating physical evidence and fraud. Good Morning East Texas' Annette Falconer is live in the studio to tell us about the school's decision to continue with this year's spring break trip to Turkey.
Grant Dade says clouds will be on the increase throughout the day. High temperatures will range from the middle 60s north to the lower 70s south. Tonight will be mostly cloudy with a few sprinkles possible by morning. Lows will only drop into the 50s. Saturday will be mostly cloudy and warm. There will be a few isolated showers possible. Highs will approach 70 degrees. Grant will have a look at the rest of the weekend to see when some thunderstorms could affect the area coming up on Good Morning East Texas.
