Good afternoon! We hope your Tuesday is going well.

Here are some stories for you to check out this afternoon:

1. The suspect in a Tuesday morning shooting in Smith County has now been taken into custody. Adrian Ray Mata, 29, of Tyler was arrested at a residence on Serenity Way near Lake Palestine after a standoff with police. The shooting happened at 11:07 Tuesday morning when authorities say Jennifer Mata was shot in the 1500 block of CR 333. She was transported to the hospital with life threatening injuries, and we now know that she has passed away. Our Cody Lillich is on the scene and will have updates for you on East Texas News at 4, 5 and 6.

2. A Nacogdoches County resident found a former Army sergeant's beloved post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) service dog lying dead in a ditch near the Lilly Grove Baptist Church on FM 1638.

Shonyo, a female blue-nose pit bull, had apparently been run over.

3. General Motors is adding more than 588,000 vehicles to a recall to fix ignition switches that can shut off engines and cause crashes. The company says it's adding Saturn Ion compacts from 2003 through 2007, and Chevrolet HHR SUVs and Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky sports cars from 2006 and 2007.

4. Tazille Madison III of Longview was arrested Sunday after police say he drove into oncoming traffic at a high rate of speed with a child in his vehicle. The child, an 11-year-old girl, leapt from the moving vehicle, later telling police "he took something that made him crazy."  Police say she also told them several times that he was trying to kill both her and himself.

5. The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Tuesday it will spend millions of dollars to help farmers and ranchers improve pastures in five Midwestern states to provide food for the nation's struggling honeybees. Commercial honeybees pollinate an estimated $15 billion worth of produce each year.

6. President Barack Obama has ordered the Pentagon to plan for a full American withdrawal from Afghanistan by the end of this year should the Afghan government refuse to sign a security agreement with the U.S., the White House said Tuesday. However, in a call with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Obama also said the U.S. could still keep a limited troop presence in Afghanistan after 2014 if the agreement is ultimately signed.
