Good afternoon!

It's a busy Wednesday afternoon here at WAVE 3 News! Our crews are all over the area for several breaking stories we're working on for WAVE 3 News at 5.

WAVE 3's Katie Bauer is on the scene of an apartment fire on Buechel Bank Road where flames were shooting out of one building. It's closed the road to traffic.  She's gathering more information as this story unfolds and we'll check in with her at 5:00.

A South Louisville mother came home early this morning to find her 15-year-old son shot to death in their home.  WAVE 3's Maira Ansari spoke to that stunned mother about the teenager and her loss.

And, NBC News is reporting that George Zimmerman will face charges in the death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.  We're expecting a news conference on that announcement this evening and will bring that to you live.

Plus, Dawne Gee is in Radcliff to Pass the Cash to a woman who almost lost hope, but her friend kept working to pull her through.

We'll see you at 5!
