    It’s Monday, October 7th – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.

    No. 1 – Weather wise, a muggy start to the work week is in store across South Florida as higher rain chances stick around for the next few days. Keep your NBC 6 app handy for push alerts of any severe weather and First Alert Doppler 6000.

    No. 2 - A woman was fatally shot in Miami Beach early Sunday after an altercation with a man who fled the scene, according to police.

    The Miami Beach Police Department said the shooting occurred just after 2 a.m. at the northwest corner of 10th Street and Collins Avenue. The woman was involved in an altercation with the man who shot at her at least three times.

    No. 3 – Emotions were on display Sunday for a vigil honoring 17-year-old Christian Burgos, who lost his life trying to save a mother and son from drowning earlier this week.

    Burgos died Wednesday after jumping into strong currents to help a 25-year-old mother and her 9-year-old son, who were struggling to swim in the fierce water. Burgos ended up also getting caught in the current and was pulled out by two bystanders.

    No. 4 - A federal judge is set to begin hearing a case Monday that could decide if Florida lawmakers exceeded their authority to strip voting rights from former felons who still owe fines and other financial obligations once freed from prison.

    Amendment 4 was overwhelmingly approved by voters last fall. It was supposed to restore voting rights to 1.4 million Floridians with felony convictions who had already completed their sentences, including parole or probation.

    No. 5 - House Democrats are marching forward with their impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, with more depositions coming this week.

    Democrats are moving quickly to interview key witnesses and lock down information as they explore the question of whether the president compromised national security or abused his office – while the administration is continuing to offer mixed signals as it struggles to respond to the barrage and as the president lashes out by tweet.

    No. 6 - Delta Airlines says a woman was able to board one of its planes at a Florida airport without a ticket and was removed, delaying the flight.

    The airline apologized in a statement Sunday for the three-hour delay on its Orlando-Atlanta flight. Delta employees asked for her ticket because she was in someone else's seat. Orlando police Lt. Wanda Miglio says the woman said she threw her ticket away and didn't have identification.
