Good evening from the WBRC FOX6 Newsroom! This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at the stories we're following for you tonight.
Watching for bad weather
First tonight we're doing our best to keep you as up-to-date as possible on the evolving severe weather threat for Wednesday, which J-P says is looking more significant by the hour. He'll have his latest model data and forecast track throughout our 90 minutes of news starting with WBRC FOX6 News at 9.
He came home to find a burglar in his house, tried to chase them, and ended up getting shot. That's how Birmingham police are describing what happened to a Roebuck homeowner seriously injured in that situation. Our Lydia Hu is at police headquarters working her sources as the chase for the shooter heats up.
Hoover council stamp of approval
Plus Hoover's making official right now what we tipped you to on Friday: they're ready to build a $70 million sports complex including lacrosse fields near the Hoover Met. New on WBRC FOX6 News at 10 we're getting a first look at the detailed plans and timeline for this potentially game-changing project.
