Gun on the run - - Jackson, MS

Gun on the run

Good Thursday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

You'll find it to be unusually warm outside, relatively speaking. 41 degrees right now and it's the first morning this week we haven't been below freezing. Meteorologist Michael Haynes will let us know how our weather is shaping up for the weekend in his First Alert Forecast.

Happening now, Jackson Police officials are asking that whoever stole a submachine gun from a SWAT officer's vehicle to return it. If the person's caught the penalties are not pretty and we'll tell you what would be in store for the thief.  

Plus, instead of celebrating the beginning of his second term as New Jersey's governor, Chris Christie is in defense mode in the biggest political fight of his career.

And, keeping good teachers and educators in Mississippi. That's the goal of a of a legislative task force which will be meeting at the State Capitol today. Jewell Hillery will join us live with a preview of what lawmakers have planned.

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

Please join us from 5 to 7 and Mississippi News Now continues on FOX 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Friday eve!
