UPDATE: Ole Miss student now in police custody

And you thought Friday afternoon would never get here! Slightly warmer in the Jackson metro area. I'm Howard Ballou with a look at some of the news stories you will see on WLBT.

Ole Miss Police have confirmed, on their Facebook page, that Byron Magee, wanted for armed robbery, has been "apprehended by authorities." 

Plus, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is assisting the Leake County Sheriff's Department in the investigation of a body found in Leake County earlier today.

And, community organizer Henry Minor says he'll hold a prayer vigil at Morton High School to talk about the direction of the Scott County school district and the proposed state takeover.

In sports, a preview of college baseball set to begin next week.

Clear skies and 45 degrees but it feels like 41. Watch your full First Alert Forecast and see what the weekend looks like.
