A 71 year-old Dallas man is still hospitalized with what appears to be the West Nile Virus, but hospital officials say that he is doing much better. Dallas city leaders have decided for now to back away from any aerial spraying, but ground spraying will be stepped up over the next few weeks. So far, two human cases have been reported in Dallas with eight others in southeast Texas. Lubbock mosquito experts say the virus will likely spread to Lubbock. However, the chances of getting infected are slim.

Also in Dallas, a suspected burglar is dead Wednesday after trying to invade a man's home overnight. Police say the man told investigators he saw someone attempting to break in, and shot at him, hitting the suspect in the chest. The man died on the way to the hospital. At this time, no charges have been filed.

Two San Antonio teenage boys are in jail Wednesday night after pouring a bucket of urine on passengers riding on a River Walk boat. Police say that seconds after the teens dumped the liquid on the passengers they complained of trouble breathing and burning eyes. A haz-mat team hosed them off as a precaution. No one had to be taken to the hospital. The two teens have not yet been charged.
