here on riverside drive which is near washington and rancho. they found a hispanic male possibly in his 70s shot multiple times and dead in the driveway. and a second hispanic male was taken to umc trauma with a gunshot wound to the head. he's considered to be in extremely critical condition. those are the words - the lieutenant used - extremely critical. he also says it appears both men who were shot showed up at a home here to deal with some sort of dispute... and they ended up getting shot by someone at that home. four to five shots may have been fired. one gun was found at the scene....it may belong to one of the men who was shot... so that's why police believe the suspect may still have a gun used in this shooting. ((vanessa murphy)) as far as a motive - police say that's unknown at this time. but again - it appears there was some sort of ongoing dispute at the center of this all. the bottom line - this may involve a fight between two groups - but at the same time police say this does not appear to be gang related. back to you. ((dave courvoisier)) vanessa, the home where this
people there? ((vanessa murphy)) dave, police tell us - yes - there was a family there... they may be relatives of the suspect. and there were some children there... but the lieutenant says since the shooting happened outside, he does not believe those children were in danger./// ((paula francis)) > an outpouring of love tonight for rene angelil, the man who discovered celine dion, married her, and brought her to las vegas. angelil lost his las vegas. angelil lost his long battle with throat cancer at age 73. this is the scene outside caesars palace, where dion is one of the biggest draws in show business. the marquee says "we will miss you friend." rene angelil was also dion's manager. dion returned to the colosseum at caesars palace in august after taking a year off to care for angelil. the couple have three children together. celine's weekend shows have been canceled. she is scheduled to perform again in february, but it's unclear at this time if those dates will stand. warm thoughts for the family have been pouring out tonight

((patranya bhoolsuwan)) not perfect.... but it's what they are calling a good start.. the terms are outlined in this 118 - page collective bargaining agreement...one that will cost taxpayers some 135 million dollars over the next 2 years: < it was a unanimous vote at the clark county school board meeting. 7 trustees saying yes to a new 2 year contract that will result in a long awaited pay bump to more than 18 thousand teachers across the district. ((jana pleggenkuhle/teac her: "i
somewhat changing.")) under the contract, the base salary for new teachers will go up from around 35 thousand dollars to 40 thousand dollars a year. current teachers will also see a step up on their pay based on education and experience...wit h a new cap at about 90 thousand a year. and for the first time teachers who seek out professional development will get even more money down the road. ((pat skorkowsky/ccsd superintendent: "i look forward to what will be a game changer in the future for education of our students in clark county school district.")) but not every teacher thinks this new contract goes far enough. ((chuck scorpiniti/teacher: "i am one of the teachers who consider leaving.")) chuck scorpinetti has been teaching for a few years and is also working on his masters degree. he says even with the pay raise he will only be making about the same as a newly hired educator. ((chris garvey/ccsd trustee: "i hear your message it's not perfect i know that.")) for now, aside from pay raise, teachers
their cost of living pay and health care contributions. and new recruits willing to teach in at risk schools will still receive a 5- thousand dollar bonus. ((linda young/ccsd trustee: "we know we want to do more..but again this is just a starting point.")) > ((patranya bhoolsuwan)) ccsd will have to make budget cuts in other areas to make good on this contract. so expect to see millions of dollars less going towards school maintenance over the next few years. h-r and payroll departments will also be affected. but no layoffs are expected. ((dave courvoisier)) patranya, how much impact does the district think this move will help in future recruiting efforts? ((patranya bhoolsuwan)) teachers union leaders tell me it's already making a difference... as word of the higher salary has gotten out to potential recruits from states like california and texas. and we still need teachers, right now the district is still dealing with about 700 vacancies./// ((paula francis)) > the city of
this evening to discuss funding of the clark county school district. a technical advisory committee is developing a plan to reorganize the school district... and how to distribute funding for students to local schools. lawmakers passed a measure last year to create a plan to divide c-c-s-d into smaller precincts. one parent said insufficient funding is not only hurting students, but business in southern nevada as well: (( parent: silicon valley, san francisco bay area, tech companies in boulder, colorado, they're all having the same problem. they're afraid of doing business in southern nevada because of what their children will be exposed to by not having the tools and technologies in schools." )) those tasked with the decision are weighing input at these meetings before the plan is finalized -- that could be in place as soon as this summer. the deadline is january first, 2017./// ((dave courvoisier)) > a break in a murder case of a teenager
in october. authorities say they've arrested a suspect in california. back on october 26-th, 16 year-old tiyvone taylor mills was killed near lake mead and torrey pines. the only evidence police had to work with at the time was this surveillance video where the teen was seen arguing with a man before the shooting. in december, metro detectives identified the suspect as 24 year-old jimmy robinson, junior. a warrant was issued for his arrest and yesterday robinson was taken into custody near richmond, california... just north of oakland. tonight, we spoke with the victim's grandmother who praised a metro detective for his work to bring in the suspect: ((ruby taylor/ victim's grandmother: it's amazing. he made sure that this guy was caught. i stayed on him, you gotta catch him, this is my baby, this is my grandson and he did.)) ((dave courvoisier)) a mug shot for robinson is not available yet. he's awaiting extradition to las vegas to face charges of murder with a deadly weapon and attempted murder with a deadly weapon.///
tonight on our freedom of information act request to see video from an officer-worn body camera... in a case that cost a metro officer his job. metro confirms to us that our request has been received and in a letter signed by public information officer larry hadfield on behalf of sheriff joe lombardo, we're told it will take at least 30 days to compile the video in question. in case you aren't familiar with the case... here's the background information... officer richard scavone is accused of roughing up a suspected prostitute on january sixth of last year near tropicana and industrial road. on march 17-th of last year, the district attorney's office announced it was filing misdemeanor charges against the eight-year veteran of the force. metro held a press conference that same day calling scavone's actions "excessive" and unreasonable. seven months later, the department fired scavone. then, on tuesday a grand jury returned an indictment against scavone -- determining there is
it was then that we asked metro to release the body camera video. they deferred to the u-s attorney's office, which is prosecuting the case. a spokeswoman from the u-s attorney's office told us they would not prevent metro from releasing the video. we then took the request back to metro. the department told us yesterday that they would not release it... stating that it is evidence in the case... even after the agency that's prosecuting gave the release the go- ahead. that's when we filed the freedom of information act request and asked metro to cite specific exemptions they feel might justify the refusal to release the video -- which is public record. you may be wondering why we don't have a mugshot of the former officer... hadfield tells us scavone was never booked... and because he was charged with a misdemeanor this does not result in a booking photo unless it is for d-u-i or domestic violence. the district attorney's office filed the charges, but did not arrest scavone./// music ((dave courvoisier)) > the republican presidential
charleston, south carolina on the fox business network. the two candidates leading in the g-o-p polls, donald trump and senator ted cruz continued to trade barbs... this time about trump's home town: (( sen. ted cruz/(r) presidential candidate: "everyone understands that the values in new york city are socially liberal, are pro- abortion are pro-gay marriage, focus around money and the media." // donald trump/(r) presidential candidate: "new york is a great place, it's got great people, it's got loving people, wonderful people, when the world trade center came down, i saw something that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely than new york." )) ((dave courvoisier)) most of the conversation this evening was aimed at taking on democratic candidate hillary clinton. the candidates get another chance to face off in two weeks.... just days before the iowa caucuses./// ((dave courvoisier)) > all new tonight... the episcopal church is being sanctioned by the international anglican communion over its

(30) tony illia: "oh yeah, it absolutely did." )) ((patrick walker)) spokesman tony illia says his department had already planned on upgrades like widening a 5-mile stretch to four lanes... and upgrading the interchange at i-15. but last month's special session freed up funding to get the projects started. ((tony illia/ndot: "in this case, the state is going to be fronting the funds, and then reimbursed from its federal allocation." )) ((patrick walker)) those improvements are critical not only for faraday future, but also other companies that may be eyeing the 18-thousand acre industrial park.
robert lang has predicted apex could have a quarter- trilliion dollar economic impact over 20 years... once the wide swath of desert is built out. while it's no silicon valley... lang says a full industrial park will be a source of tens of thousands of good-paying, advanced manufacturing jobs. ((dr, robert lang/director, brookings mountain west: "the fact is you have many more employees in the manufacturing plant in the place you're making the product, and it's the kind of employment that we need, the kind of jobs that we need filled in this valley." )) ((patrick walker)) faraday is expected to break ground soon... other companies are expected to follow... leaving a tight schedule for n- dot to try to get its work done. if all goes as planned... road construction could begin in the first half of next year. patrick walker... 8 news now.
