Beneath the bridge

 It's been three years since a Livingston man was shot and killed and his body dumped in a creek bed. And ever since then, his mother has been waiting and hoping for justice. Authorities say their investigation has taken them across seven counties, but they still need help connecting the dots. Leigha Hughes brings you this special report tonight at 10.

 An eight-year-old child is recovering from a vicious dog attack in which she was only saved when an elderly woman covered her up from the attack and got attacked herself. Caleb Beames has that story at 6.

 Lufkin police say there has been an increase in telephone scams in the past month. And while we can't say it enough, there are still people who do not beware of scams. At 6, Cheyenne Simpson explains a few things you can look for to avoid being scammed.
