ON WAFF 48 NEWS TODAY

Hello Monday & Good Morning Everyone, here is what the newsroom is buzzing about this morning ahead of WAFF 48 News Today.

We are working to get new information behind an officer involved shooting in Huntsville over the weekend. What police say started as a call about a possible drunk driver ended in a confrontation and death of a man in the car along highway 53 Saturday. We'll breakdown other details at 5:00 & 6:00 a.m.

Many of you followed the case of a deadly hit & run by a Huntsville woman who killed an 8 year old boy. A jury convicted Latonya Haley and today we'll find out how long she'll stay behind bars. Look for details about her sentencing.

I don't know about you but I've been wondering about the 911 calls made by the Orlando shooter. Today, the FBI plans to release some of the transcripts during the Orlando nightclub shooter's conversations with police.

Meantime, lawmakers in the Senate plan to vote on a gun measure following the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history in Orlando. We'll look at the implications of passing such a measure and if it fails much like legislation did at the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary school in 2012.

The Cavs did it! The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Finals, defeating the Golden State Warriors 93-89 in Sunday's Game 7. It's the first major sports championship that a Cleveland team has won since 1964. We'll have all your highlights.

It's the official first day of Summer. We're actually starting a bit cooler outside this morning. Tune in for weather on the 10s to see how the rest of the day will show up.

Also, catch your First Alert Road Report every 15 minutes starting at 5:50 a.m.

My other half Trent Butler is out today so Stephanie Mills will be joining me on the anchor desk.

See you starting at 4:30 a.m.
