Posted: Updated:

Good Monday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

It's 48 degrees right now and the word from our meteorologists is get ready for the rain.  Michael Haynes will tell us all about it in the First Alert Forecast.

Happening now, three suspects arrested for putting on dog fights in Rankin County are awaiting their meeting with a judge. Three pitbulls were seized during the dog fighting bust, and coming up on the WLBT AM Report we'll let you know where the dogs are being kept now.

Also, two men are recovering in the hospital this morning after being shot while leaving a bar in Jackson Saturday morning. It's the second shooting at M Bar, on the north side of town, in the last two weeks.

And, we'll bring you highlights from last night's Golden Globes.  Who walked away with the most hardware?

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now you can find it on FOX 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Monday!
