EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

Good afternoon East Texas. We are definitely feeling the summertime heat and humidity in East Texas this Tuesday afternoon.

Here are some stories we've been working on for you to check out as you go about the afternoon tasks:

1. Disturbing news out of Amarillo this afternoon, after an armed man who was suspected of holding two people hostage at an Amarillo Walmart was shot and killed by police. More on this story.

2.  As details continue to unfold in the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Florida, WFTV in Orlando cited law enforcement sources in its report that Noor Salman, wife of Orlando gunman Omar Mateen, gave the FBI a written statement that she knew about her husband’s plan to attack the Pulse nightclub and didn’t stop him.

3. Rusk County authorities are asking for the public's help in locating a driver who hit a construction worker and left the scene last Friday. That worker is in critical condition at a local hospital.

4. It's starting to look a lot like...summer? Whew, it's a hot one today. The heat and the humidity is on in East Texas. We are looking for some very warm and very humid days ahead. Chances for showers and/or thundershowers will be near zero through Friday, then slight chances will enter the forecast for the weekend. Watch KLTV7 News at 5 and 6 for the latest update from Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto.
