    It’s Thursday, July 11th – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.

    Weather wise, temperatures will reach the low 90s across South Florida as part of drier weather that looks to stick around through the weekend.

    No. 1 - Police are looking for a man who they say shot and killed his girlfriend, a mother of three children, early Wednesday in Hollywood.

    Carnell Spencer Lee Jr. is wanted for the murder of 31-year-old Coretta Bain, according to the Hollywood Police Department. Officers responded to an apartment complex located off Washington Street and South 56th Avenue around 4:30 a.m., where they discovered the woman's body.

    No. 2 - A murder suspect who was mistakenly released from Broward County jail months ago has been caught in Georgia, officials said Wednesday.

    The Broward County Sheriff's Office released 28-year-old Eric Vail on May 30 when a second-degree murder charge was dismissed even though he had been indicted by a grand jury earlier this year on a first-degree murder charge. The investigation led authorities to a mobile home in Jesup, Georgia.

    No. 3 - A propane gas leak forced hundreds of residents in Coconut Grove to evacuate Wednesday.

    City of Miami Fire Rescue officials said they responded to a building in the area of Bird Road and 27th Avenue around 8:30 a.m. after someone reported smelling gas. Fire officials removed the defective valve and deemed the area safe after 12 hours. Residents were allowed to go back to their homes.

    No. 4 - President Donald Trump's company said Wednesday it has canceled a golf tournament with strippers serving as caddies that was to be held at Trump's golf resort in Doral.

    The Washington Post reports the Trump Organization issued a statement saying the event would no longer take place because a children's charity that was to benefit from it had pulled out. The Shadow All Star Tournament was organized by a Hialeah strip club, Shadow Cabaret.

    No. 5 - A potential tropical storm brewing in the Gulf of Mexico presents twin troubles for parts of southeast Louisiana — the possibility that a high Mississippi River will be lapping at the tops of levees this weekend, and a danger of flash floods like the one that unexpectedly walloped New Orleans on Wednesday.

    The Gulf of Mexico disturbance that dumped as much as 8 inches of rain in parts of metro New Orleans in a three-hour span was forecast to strengthen into a tropical depression Thursday, a tropical storm called Barry Thursday night, and, possibly, a hurricane by Friday night.

    No. 6 - Nail dipping is a manicure that's grown in popularity over the last couple years – but some health experts say it may be putting you at risk of an infection.
