Five things to know this Wednesday morning:
1.) Downey Relay for Life has its kick-off today at Bob's Big Boy restaurant.
From 5-9 p.m., you can learn about Relay for Life, and the programs and services offered by the American Cancer Society. The kickoff is also a fundraiser, so Bob's Big Boy is donating 20% of all food and beverage purchases to the Downey Relay for Life (must show this flyer).
2.) That empty lot at Firestone and Rives that was rumored to be a Starbucks will instead house a Valvoline oil change center.
3.) A man was arrested near the Rio Hondo River after leading police officers on a slow speed chase early this morning.
4.) Also this morning residents reported hearing up to six gunshots in south Downey at around 3 a.m.
5.) Dates have been announced for the fifth annual GlennFest Movie Festival in Downey: Sept. 24 through Oct. 6.
