5:02 am
investigating a fatal shooting on a college campus. shaina humphries is following this, so shaina what do we know about the shooting so far? shaina: elizabeth, police believe the shooting was actually triggered by an argument over a dice game on the tennessee state university campus. three people were shot, one of those people is dead, the other two are being treated in a local hospital. the man who died was not a student, but a university spokeperson says the two injured victims are students, and their injuries are not life-threatening. no word yet if the suspect in this shooting is in custody. also developing overnight, hurricane patricia strengthened to a category five storm as it heads toward mexico's pacific coast. the storm is supposed to make landfall in the mexican state of jalisco sometime friday afternoon. heavy rain is already pounding some areas. officials have declared a state of emergency in three mexican states, and classes at all education levels are cancelled for the day. officials warn the storm's effects could be catastrophic. flooding is already affecting parts of texas. cars in abilene drove through several inches of water during rush hour thursday, as rain fell

5:05 am
for iowa drivers. the interchange will be called a diverging diamond, there are 3 in kansas city but this will be the first one in iowa. the simplest explanation, get used to driving on what will feel like the wrong side of the road when you pass over i-80. it's a design that limits the places where traffic crosses paths, and allows more cars to flow through and a faster rate. >> we think there will be a lot of people coming down 141 come down alices road to get onto interstate rather than go down 141 to rider corner. air the director of waukee : public works says the new grand prairie parkway interchange is expected to see up to 45,000 vehicles a day. it's scheduled to open in late november. elizabeth: this morning, there's a townhouse boom in downtown des moines. hubbell realty says they've sold all 27 of their townhomes at their artisan row development, before they've even poured any concrete. the development is at 16th and grand.

5:15 am
into the holes to be treated apart from other healthy tissues. >> no one is excited to have radiation, no one is excited to have cancer. but they are very excited about the opportunity to have radiation that is going to spare their heart and lungs. emmy: this treatment can also decrease skin reactions and a second cancer from forming. the bliss cancer center is the first place in central iowa that offers this. more than 25% of patients at bliss are diagnosed with breast cancer. live in studio, emmy victor, kcci 8 news, iowa's news leader. eric: thanks emmy, shaina is back with another health story developing this morning, shaina? shaina: eric, you may remember pharmaceutical company turing from a story last month, it made headlines when it hiked up the price of a drug used to treat a life-threatening infection from $13 repel to $750 per pill. overnight we learned a competition drug company, imprimis, will supply that same drug, for just one-dollar per pill to make the pills more widely available. turing ceo martin shkreli recently promised to lower the
5:16 am
price, but that has not happened yet. and right now federal regulators , are urging drivers to get your cars fixed immediately if it's part of the recent takata airbag recall. the faulty airbags are responsible for 8 deaths and nearly 100 injuries so far. 19.2 million vehicles from 12 manufacturers are affected and the officials say less than a quarter of those recalled have been fixed nationwide. drivers are encouraged to go to to see if their vehicle is listed, and make an immediate appointment for a free repair. elizabeth: more economic headlines now, mazda is recalling almost a million and a half vehicles in the u.s. this morning, because ignition switches can overheat and catch fire. the recall impacts these seven models. so far, no injuries or accidents have been reported, dealers will replace the ignition switches starting in december. many cars these days are equipped with hands-free technology, designed to keep your attention on the road. but a new aaa study shows hands-free can actually be more
5:17 am
dangerous than previously thought. distracted driving killed more than 3100 people and injured about 424,000 in the year 2013 alone. the triple-a study finds even the hands-free systems that work with voice commands leave drivers with something called lingering distraction. >> you have to kind of get out of that distracted zone and to much more of an alert driver, but that takes time, it takes up to 27 seconds. if you are now all of a sudden talking to your phone, you are now focusing on one task, to the exclusion of tending to the elizabeth: researchers say the bottom line is, just because there is hands-free technology mean it's safe to use while driving. eric: stocks surged on wall street thursday. the dow was up more than 320 points. the nasdaq added almost 80. and the s and p 500 jumped more than 33. a note for holiday shoppers. starting this sunday, best buy

5:19 am
i think the chocolatey caramel has my vote. jason: i like anything bacon. you can put bacon on bacon and i would probably eat it. today is going to be a pretty tasty day, no bacon falling from the sky that we do have rain. 58 is what we are sitting at right now. rain throughout the morning hours as well as a few scattered showers and thundershowers, warming all the way to 67. we are still looking at a pretty decent day temperature wise. the stream of moisture is being pulled by the system into southern south dakota and that will be shifting off to the northeast. as it does so, it takes a good batch of rain with it. eventually clouds will be clearing. we have to wait until saturday for that to happen, so plan on rain throughout your morning and then as you head into the afternoon. we catch a little bit of a
5:20 am
break. that main batch of rain shifts eastward so around 2:00 we have a bit of a break in the rain before another resurgence makes its way in. if you are headed to a football game, i would still pack that umbrella. you are likely to still see a few showers lingering. overnight, mainly just clouds and those begin to clear on saturday morning. temperatures topping out in the mid-60's. after we get rid of the rain, a beautiful one ahead of us. 67 today along with a gusty southwest wind. 70 from council bluffs to lamoni. 51 will be the low tonight. a beautiful weekend, mid-60's saturday and sunday along with the sunshine. we kickoff the work with -- the

5:44 am
6:00 or 7:00 timeframe. you can see the moisture in this area of low pressure, continuing to drive up from the south. we are seeing warmer conditions, some spots in the mid-70's for highs. this continues to push eastward and some of those clouds begin to break up as high pressure slides into the nebraska area. it is going to mean a much sunnier weekend for us. one rainy day will make way for beautiful conditions this weekend. futurecast drives most of that rain through as we head through the 1:00 or 2:00 timeframe, and then that gap. a scatter line as we head into the evening hours. we are not seeing a lot of sites cloud the backside of this low pressure. if you are looking for a gorgeous weekend, we have another great fall weekend lined up for us with plenty of sunshine.
