LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Here are five stories WAVE Country will be talking about today:

1. Rainy start: Scattered showers this morning will grow even more scattered as the day wears on. Some breaks in the clouds are possible late in the day. WAVE 3 News Storm Tracking Team meteorologists Christie Dutton and Brian Goode look at the rain and storm risk for Friday through the end of Memorial Day weekend.

2. Dequante Hobbs: The mother of the 7-year-old boy shot and killed by a stray bullet Sunday night invited WAVE 3 News into her home to show the devastating effects of gun violence. Police are still looking for the person who pulled the trigger during a argument over a dice game behind the boy's home.

3. Death investigation: Authorities are investigating the death of a woman who was hit by a train Wednesday night in southern Jefferson County. The incident happened about 8:45 p.m. on Dixie Highway near Richie Lane. The victim died at the scene. It's not clear why she was on the tracks.

4. Criminal abuse charges: Family members of a LaRue County woman who died earlier this month have been charged with criminal abuse. Mary King died May 5. Her nephew, Loyd Sadler and his wife Lora Sadler were renting a mobile home to King, where police said she lived in filthy conditions with 31 dogs. King's cause of death has not been released.

5. Omni Hotel protest: People working on the new Omni Hotel, which already is changing the face of Louisville's skyline, will protest what they call unfair labor practices and wages at the construction site today. Although the Omni workers are not union workers, other unions will participate in solidarity. It's unclear whether the protest will have an impact on the construction deadline, which is Spring 2018.
