Breaking this morning: Death investigation underway in DeKalb County

It's Friday, and never a dull moment in the newsroom.

We have some breaking news to update you about out of Crossville. We've got reporter, Jonathan Radford headed to Dekalb county to bring you live reports after a shooting where one person is dead and another is seriously injured.

If you travel Highway 31 in Athens, we'll be checking to see if it's back open this morning. Especially, after a flatbed hauling a backhoe hit the side of the Highway 31 overpass. The southbound lane was closed for inspection so we'll double check if you should head that way this morning.

A warrant is now out for the arrest of a former Shoals youth minister facing sex charges. This after he popped up with a new job at another church in Texas. Charles Kyle Adcock is charged with rape and sodomy. Police say his victim was under the age of 16 and the abuse happened while Adcock worked at Woodward Avenue Baptist Church in Muscle Shoals.

Also, there's concerts on the dock tonight at Lowe Mill, an Alzheimer's Walk & of course 9-11 memorial events throughout the valley this weekend. Tune in at 5:55 a.m. & 6:50 a.m. for all your weekend events.

Alright, see you starting at 4:30 a.m.
