INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Good morning. Here are five things you need to know today:
1) A Zionsville shooting suspect is on the loose. A man was shot at the Quail Run apartment complex on N. Ford Road just north of Oak Street on the west side of Zionsville around 10 p.m. Boone County deputies searched for several hours after the incident last night at 10 p.m. but tweeted at 2 a.m. that they'd exhausted all of their leads. The suspect is described as a heavyset Hispanic male, 5 feet 8 inches tall last seen wearing a red hooded sweatshirt. Police believe the man was headed east, possibly to the Zionsville Rail Trail, which runs behind the apartments, but that's where they lost the trail.
2) Funerals begin today for the victims of the Tree of Life synagogue shooting, starting with Cecil and David Rosenthal - a pair of intellectually disabled brothers in their 50s who were ensconced in Pittsburgh's close-knit Jewish community. Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz, a family-medicine practitioner known for his caring and kindness, and Daniel Stein, a man seen as part of the core of his congregation, will also be laid to rest today. Other victims' funerals have been scheduled through Friday in a week of mourning, anguish and questions about the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump plan to visit Pittsburgh today to "express the support of the American people and to grieve with the Pittsburgh community," the White House said.
3) Indiana's US Senate candidates face off in their final debate tonight. Joe Donnelly, Mike Braun and Lucy Brenton will be at the Toby Theater at Newfields, the Indianapolis Museum of Art. There are no seats left to watch it in person - every ticket was claimed within three hours of the debate's announcement over the summer - but you can watch it on WTHR Channel 13-1 starting at 7 p.m. Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! will air on WALV. That's Channel 13-3 or Channel 46-1 over the air. Click here for how to find that on cable.
4) In a month where so many days have been colder than average, we have a day where many of you reach 70 degrees. If you need to rake leaves, Chuck Lofton says to do it before tomorrow morning. We could see a lot of rain tomorrow with heavy amounts possible. Widespread 1" to locally 3"+ amounts between late tonight and Friday evening. That means Halloween will be wet at times during the day, along with temperatures falling from near 60 degrees tomorrow morning to 45 - 50 degrees by evening as a cold front passes to the south. Right now, it looks like the steadiest, heaviest rain will be south of I-70 by trick-or-treating hours.
5) The mayor of Lawrence has moved trick-or-treating to tonight to avoid a wet Wednesday forecast. Mayor Steve Collier announced trick-or-treating will be held from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. instead of tomorrow on Halloween night. Other towns like Hope in Bartholomew County have pushed trick-or-treating back to Friday from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. North Vernon officials also decided to delay until Friday night. Sweet Street at First Christian Church, First Baptist Trunk-or-Treat and others have agreed to move their plans to Friday night as well. Those times remain the same: 5:30 p.m. - 8 p.m.
