Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we’re working on for WBRC FOX6 News this evening.
 
Run, hide, fight

What would you do if you had to face a terrorist or an active shooter? We’ll show you a video that takes you through the steps as well as how experts are now recommending we prepare ourselves on WBRC FOX6 News at 5.

Is Alabama law too tough on pregnant women?

An Alabama law designed to crack down on meth labs near children is now being used to prosecute pregnant women hooked on drugs. Is it too tough on those who need treatment instead of prison? We’ll look at the issue being considered by a state task force.
 
Moonshine bust!

Here’s a story Barney Fife would love. A moonshine operation is busted in Sumter County and authorities found a 400-gallon still. Andy Griffith fans might be thinking "pow,pow, pow."

Those stories and more beginning at 5 on WBRC FOX6 News.
