Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we're working on for FOX6 News this evening.

Shootout With Car Thief

A Hoover man exchanged gunfire this morning with a thief who was trying to steal his car. The owner had left the car running so it would warm up. Hoover Police are looking for the thief now. They are also working with Mountain Brook Police on a similar car theft that may have been pulled by the same crooks. We'll have the latest on the investigation at 5 p.m.
