Sunrise to Go: Monday, May 12

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Here are 10 things Kentuckiana will be talking about today:

1:Warm: Today will be another warm day with a slight chance of an afternoon or evening storm. The storms that are able to develop could have gusty winds, small hail and brief heavy downpours. We expect more storms tomorrow as a cold front slowly approaches WAVE Country, and numerous storms on Wednesday with a slight risk of severe storms.

2: Shooting: A fight turns into a deadly shooting in Oldham County Sunday night. Officers were dispatched to a home along East Washington Street in La Grange around 10:00. Right now police aren't sure why the two people were fighting, but according to witnesses, the violence spilled over into the front yard. The victim of the shooting is Justin Rogers, 24, of La Grange. He died at the scene. Two men, Robert Carbera and Henry Schultz-Eggenspiller of La Grange, were taken into custody. Both are being charged with murder.

3: Crash: A Metro Louisville Police officer is recovering after a crash Sunday night. Around 1 a.m., the officer crashed at 3rd and Outer Loop. According to Carey Klain of LMPD, the officer was responding to a run when the collision occurred. The officer struck a section of the roadway between West Manslick Road and Old 3rd. He has cuts to the face and back. The officer was transported to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

4: SWAT: Hillview police called in a SWAT team from the Louisville Metro Police Department to assist after spotting ammunition inside a house as they were serving warrants. Police officers were serving warrants at a home on Brookley Drive when a man barricaded himself inside, according to the Hillview Police Department. SWAT was called in as a precaution because of the ammunition spotted by officers. Police say the situation ended safely around 9 p.m.

5: Shooting: A man who died of multiple gunshot wounds suffered in the parking lot of an eastern Jefferson County apartment building has been identified.The Jefferson County Coroner's office identified the man as Nicholas J. Baker, 22. He died at University Hospital at 7:36 p.m. Saturday. LMPD spokeswoman Carey Klain said officers responded to a report of shots fired at Berrytown Apartments around 7 p.m. Saturday.

6: Drowning:A church gathering at Green River Lake in Taylor County turns tragic this Mother's Day after 19-year old Jose Zambrano drowns. Some of the kids were cruising the water on floaties. When they got too far, Zambrano jumped in bringing them to shore. Zambrano went back into the water to grab a floatie that drifted away when he started struggling. Three others, including his father, tried to reach him but couldn't. His sister said their mother and father are devastated.

7: Graduation:Plenty of proud parents packed the KFC Yum! Center Saturday afternoon for the University of Louisville's graduation ceremonies, but for a pair of daughters, it was their mother walking the line that packed an emotional wallop.

8: Graduating Athletes:University of Louisville basketball players Russ Smith and Tia Gibbs have heard their names called at the KFC Yum! Center hundreds of times, but on graduation day, it took on a whole different meaning.

9: Mothers: Mothers - and their love - are priceless. But the National Retail Federation figures Americans will spend just shy of $20 billion to show them that this Mother's Day. That works out to about $162 per mom. Two-thirds of that will go toward Sunday brunch or dinner. For Kentuckiana restaurateurs, that's the last leg of dining's Triple Crown, following Easter and Derby weekends.

10: Parklands: You'd think any little boy or girl would know what to do in a fountain. Or dirt. But maybe nature isn't second nature for them these days. After all, who has a backyard quite like the 1,800 acres now open, in the soon-to-be 4,000-acre Parklands of Floyds Fork? Saturday's Spring Fling was an opportunity to buy-in, financially and philosophically.
