It's a hard way to end the week…

The tragic news out of Colorado has us all saddened and watching for new information here at WAVE 3.  It's hard to understand how something as simple as going to a movie could end with such tragedy.  We'll have the latest on what we've learned about the mass shooting beginning at 5.

We're also following up on a couple of sad stories here at home.

WAVE 3's David Williams spoke to the man who is both the uncle and son of the two people killed in a fire at a home near Churchill Downs last night.  He'll tell us about what happened in the moments after the fire broke out.

And, WAVE 3's Jaimie Weiss is working on a disheartening development to a story that both she and I have been following for the better part of a year now: Kerry Porter, the  man released from prison late last year for a murder he didn't commit, has been re-arrested and the allegations are shocking.  She spoke to Porter's supporters today about the latest turn.

It's the oldest free outdoor organization of its kind in the country, it's right here in Louisville and the pride of many … but if it can't come up with enough money, it may shut down.  WAVE 3's Dawne Gee talks about the struggles and what might be able to save it.

And if you're looking for a little good news: tonight at 7:30 meet a man who's from Louisville and has made it to the top of the heap on America's Got Talent.  Howard Stern is a big fan!!

We'll see you, starting at 5!
