Richland High students rally to bring back teacher

Very overcast and warm Tuesday afternoon in the Jackson metro area. I'm Howard Ballou with a look at some of the news stories you will see on WLBT.

Students at Richland High School are coming together to show their support for Mary Porter, an English teacher they say has been fired for showing an R rated movie (Dolan's Cadillac) to a class as part of one of her lessons.

Plus, Jackson police identified a Monday night shooting victim as 19-year-old Jesse Whitfield; shot several times in the parking lot of the UPS building on McDowell Road.

And a 3 On Your Side investigation into blatant use of contraband by Hinds County Detention Center inmates.

In sports, a look at national signing day.

Overcast and 60 degrees. Be sure to watch your full First Alert Forecast.
