Good Evening from the WTVM Newsroom. Hope you'll join us in just a few minutes for News Leader 9 at 11. It's a busy night of high school football and Dave Platta and Sports Leader 9 are everywhere to bring you all the scores and highlight from tonight's local games.
In the news, we're working on a developing story as police raid two shops in Columbus South making several arrests and seizing several machines allegedly used for gambling. It's all part of an ongoing crackdown on gambling in the city. We'll tell you what shops were raided and have the latest on the investigation.
We'll also have the latest on a Fort Benning soldier who died after collapsing during a training exercise. We'll tell you what base officials are saying about what happened.
And local celebrities and their pets were both on stage tonight for a good cause. We'll explain.
