Good afternoon!

Here's your daily round-up of stories to check out on KLTV.com:

1. Rains County Sheriff's deputy Jerrod Dooley has been fired after the dust-up that occurred after he shot a family's barking dog. The sheriff says that Dooley has been receiving threats and that it was in the best interest of Dooley and the department for him to move on. A necropsy by a local veterinarian says that Dooley shot the dog in the back of the head, indicating the dog was retreating. We'll tell you more tonight on East Texas News at 5 and 6.

2. Authorities are searching for two individuals seen leaving the scene of a robbery in Smith County on Thursday morning.
The Smith County Sheriff's Office said deputies are looking for two black male suspects who witnesses saw leaving the scene of an attempted burglary at a residence off of County Road 411 near the Hideaway Lake community.

3. Netflix, you have met your match with Amazon Prime's latest move. The Amazon-based streaming service announced Wednesday that they will stream HBO original series beginning May 21. This is the first streaming deal HBO has signed with an online video service in its history.

4. A Smith Co. homeowner arrived at her residence earlier this week to find that three people were there burglarizing the place. Luckily, sheriff's deputies were already on the way and three young people in their 20s were arrested and are in jail.

5. On Thursday, country singer and East Texas native Neal McCoy confirmed with KLTV that he will be the headliner for the 2014 Fourth of July festival. Holly Tucker, a season six top six competitor on "The Voice", is also scheduled to perform at the festival. These performers are the replacement for Ted Nugent.

6. "I was going to have to take those pine trees down, but not like this," said an Arp woman after a semi-truck careened into her yard this afternoon. Officials can't figure out just how the truck landed in the yard.

7. Consumers are being asked to stop using certain Summer Infant Slim and Secure video monitors after their rechargeable batteries were found to pose a burn hazard. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commissions issued the recall on Wednesday after it was discovered that the batteries in the handheld baby monitors could overheat and rupture, posing a burn hazard.
