Janet's Thursday Blast

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

Charleston Gunman

We are learning more about the young man accused of murdering nine people at a Charleston church. We'll have the latest on the captured suspect, Dylann Roof. We'll also talk to former prosecutor Doug Jones about the connection between this church tragedy and the 1963 bombing at Birmingham's 16th Street Baptist Church.

Pope Politics

Pope Francis calls for decisive action on global warming and chastised those who deny a human connection to it. We'll get reaction from Father Mitch Pacwa with EWTN.

Dad Brigade

A Hoover father is calling on dads to join the "Dad Brigade" and tackle various projects at 10 elementary schools. We'll tell you how you can join him on FOX6 News at 5.

Those stories and more beginning at 5:00 on FOX6 News.
