7 from 7: Stories for your Tuesday afternoon

Posted: Updated:

Good afternoon! How's your Tuesday going this week?

Here are some stories that we think you'll want to check out this afternoon:

1. We spoke with the Rains County Sheriff's Dept. today, as well as the Point PD, who told us that there was a report of an attempted abduction of a girl before school this morning. Read here for details and join us on East Texas News at 6 for Melanie Torre's report from the scene.

2. An incredible animal story: Jim White was out hunting alligators Saturday in West Baton Rouge Parish when he came across one of his lines with something on it. What he found was a 13'4" alligator that weighed 760 pounds. Check out the story with slideshow here.

3. Nidal Hasan collected nearly $300,000 in his military salary while awaiting trial for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood. But his attorney says nearly all of it has been given to charity, likely making it inaccessible to his victims.

4. A gunman who killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard before dying in a gun battle with police had a valid pass to access the yard, according to the FBI. The suspect,  Aaron Alexis, is among the 13 who are dead. He was a military contractor for Hewlett Packard who recently lived in Fort Worth, TX.

5. You may remember reading last year on this website about the Salgado quadruplets who were born in Longview in 2012. Well, now that they're growing and doing well at home, their family is involved in a benefit concert on October 5. The concert will benefit other families whose children are in the neonatal intensive care unit, as they were. Read more about it here.

6. Texas Comptroller Susan Combs announced an interactive Web page where you can easily view information on November bond proposals being issued by cities, school districts, counties and special purpose districts around Texas. It can be found on the Tell the Truth Texas website here.

7. The man who tried to extort $200,000 from celebrity chef Paula Deen has been sentenced to two years in federal prison and one year of supervised release.
