It’s Thursday, May 16th – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.

No. 1 – Scattered showers and storms remain in the forecast for parts of South Florida on Thursday morning ahead of heat and humidity arriving by the afternoon. Keep your NBC 6 app handy for any advisories and for First Alert Doppler 6000 anytime.

No. 2 - Police are searching for the people who shot a Deerfield Beach pizza deliveryman early Thursday morning inside of an apartment complex.

Officers arrived at the scene inside the Tallman Pines Apartments off I-95 and Sample Road, where a security guard told investigators that a group of teenagers ordered the pizza and attempted to rob the deliveryman when he arrived.

The victim, whose name was not released, is expected to be okay while the suspected gunmen have not been arrested.

No. 3 - Planned Parenthood is now offering hormone therapy and other services for transgender patients in Florida, starting with two health centers in Miami this week as it plans to expand statewide within the year.

The services could help a patient who, for example, was born as a female and still has female organs but identifies as male. Prescriptions are written after extensive medical and blood tests and are only available for patients 18 and older as the cost varies based on insurance and ranges from roughly $250 to $350 out of pocket.

No. 4 - After years of setbacks and stalemates, President Donald Trump will lay out yet another immigration plan as he tries to convince the American public and lawmakers that the nation's legal immigration system should be overhauled.

The latest effort, spearheaded by Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, focuses on beefing up border security and rethinking the green card system so that it would favor people with high-level skills, degrees and job offers instead of relatives of those already in the country.

No. 5 - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is officially running for president, defying deep voter opposition at home to enter the crowded field with an unabashed message of progressivism.

De Blasio launched his website Thursday morning and made the announcement in a three-minute campaign video titled "Working People First." In it, De Blasio refers to President Donald Trump as a "bully" and says he must be stopped.

No. 6 - Employees of a business in Davie confront a co-worker over missing money – and it’s all caught on camera. Bill Wolf’s home improvement company thought they hired someone to do bookkeeping, but what he found out led to quite the scene.
