The Lumumba era begins

Good Wednesday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

It's 75 degrees and we're set-up for possibly the hottest day we've seen this year. Meteorologist Barbie Basset will pay us a visit and let us know if the heat index will be a factor in her First Alert Forecast.

Happening today, Chokwe Lumumba will get a break following a long campaign ultimately resulting in a Jackson mayoral race victory. Lumumba will join Jewell Hillery live on the AM Report to let us know his plans between now and when he's sworn-in, in July.

Our Decision 2013 coverage continues as we take you across the metro for all municipal elections, including the mayoral races for Clinton, Byram and Canton.

Plus, this morning two Jackson brothers are waking up in jail.  Police believe they are responsible for firing off as-man-as 200 bullets in a west Jackson shooting that killed one and sent several to the hospital.

All those stories and much more are headed your way at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now you can catch us on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great hump day!
