>> there's still police tape in front of the window where it appears the burglar made his way into a vacant retail space. then somehow made his way through the wall into the gun store. >> we've just learned 27 guns were stolen. the owner of new frontier armory tells us...surveillance video shows one person inside the store at around 4 this morning. security cameras may have also caught the possible getaway vehicle which could help north las vegas police track down the suspect much faster. business owners is those guns potentially getting into the wrong hands around the valley. so a beauty shop owner right next door is considering beefing up her security. ((giselle gonzalez/business owner: "we do have an alarm already but we were thinking it would be a good idea to get a camera just to see what's going on and maybe take more precaution." )) ((mauricio marin)) >> folks with the gun store hope to re-open tomorrow. they say they had plenty of

((mauricio marin)) >> at this time police have not released a description. but ask anyone who may have seen something to give them a call. reporting live...mauricio marin. 8 news now./// ((paul joncich)) >> mauricio...that's a lot of stolen guns. are the feds helping with this case? ((mauricio marin)) >> we've learned that a-t-f agents and homeland security teamed up with north las vegas police to help with the investigation. all working to track down the thied street. back to you./// ((christianne klein)) in southern california... firefighters are making some headway on the blue cut wildfire. it is now 26 percent contained.. it's raging in the cajon pass.. and is just one of 8 large wildfires that some 10- thousand firefighters are battling across the state of california./// the governor has since declared a state of emergency./// ((christianne klein)) an investigation is underway into the deaths of a dozen wild horses at an eco-resort in elko county.
5:04 pm
is looking into the incident along with the elko county sheriff's office. we do want to warn you these photos are graphic. the i-team broke the story earlier this week. a dozen dead mustangs were found on the sprawling mustang monument sanctuary owned by businesswoman madeleine pickens. vandals cut fences, diabled gates, then turned off all water sources provided for the horses. the dead ones died of thirst and dozens of others are missing. pickens has offered a information in the case. today nevada agriculture officials confirmed the horse deaths and said while they can't discuss the investigation, the quote "care of animals is ultimately the obligation of the livestock owner." mrs. pickens has said she does not expect a very vigorous investigation into the horse deaths and is not surprised by the comments by the state./// ((paul joncich)) ccsd enrollment is down, by about 90,000 students. ((christianne klein)) that's how many kids have yet
5:05 pm
and as sharie johnson shows us, a low count on day one could hurt the district's pockets. ((sharie johnson)) a lot of per-pupul funding depends on first day enrollment. so ccsd is urging parents to get their kids registered. so come the first day-- it's all about learning.
5:06 pm
their state per-pupil funding. ((ccsd chief student achievement officer mike barton it could be millions of dollars for the clark county school district so we're watching first day enrollment and subsequent days after that as well )) ((sharie johnson)) this schoolyear the first state allocation hinges on first day enrollment. but dad's like dennis, say they can't afford to do anything last minute. ((dennis fields, ccsd parent i don't have the type of children that allow me to procrastinate )) >> ((sharie johnson)) if you haven't enrolled just go to the distict's website, and look for infinite campus. if you don't have internet or a library. ((christianne klein)) as we inch closer to the start of the school year... the start of the school year... the i-r-s is warning folks about a "student tax" scam. first of all... it's not a real tax.. but not everybody knows that. since 2013... folks around the country have lost more than 40-million dollars to scammers... about 570-thousand in nevada.
5:07 pm
money over the phone... especially as prepaid gift card. they will also never threaten to involve the police or have you arrested./// ((christianne klein)) speaking of scams... one of our 8 news now viewers nearly fell victim to one recently. thankfully she reached out to our consumer advocate michelle mortensen... who got her back hundreds of dollars. ((michelle mortensen)) money for nothing. sounds too good to be true, right? that's what brenda thought too. hotline recently and wanted to know if this company found money was a scam. they say they had found her several hundrd dollars and all she had to do was pay them 30% of the cash to get. she wanted to know if it was a scam. well in this case .. it was and it wasn't. turns out brenda did have sevral hundred dollars due her in
5:08 pm
previously lived. but that money was hers and she didn't have to pay anyone to get it. the company trying to "get it for her" for a 30% fee was the one running a scam. unclaimed property is 100% legitmate. every state in america is sitting on millions of dollars in cash that they want to give back to residents. and it's easy to find out if you have any uncalimed property. just go to the website missing money dot com. yo find out if you have uncalimed money in any state ... and with a click of a button get a check mailed to you in a matter of days for free. so do yourself a favor and check it out .. often. and remember ... never pay anyone for something that's rightfully yours!! i'm michelle mortensen ((paul joncich)) coming up..,. the roller coaster between steve wynn and donald trump continues to roll. next on the valley's news leader... the i-team dives into the
5:09 pm
now that wynn says he's not picking a side in the race for president.///

5:12 pm
this is 8 news now at five.")) ((christianne klein)) this week, las vegas casino owner steve wynn surprised the political world when he a side in the presidential race. ((paul joncich)) >> the reason it's a surprise is that wynn has a longstanding friendship with donald trump and has been front and center at trump's campaign events here. the relationship between the two casino developers is solid these days... but has been a roller coaster as far back as the 80's. ((christianne klein)) >> george knapp has more in tonight's street talk commentary. ((george knapp)) like some marriages, the friendship between business titans steve wynn and donald trump is complicated. when i read this week that wynn
5:13 pm
me of something i kept in the files--this old wall street journal from 1996, a front page article in which wynn and trump lob neutron bombs at each other, calling each other all kinds of names and stopping just short of saying "your momma." remember this scene back in 2011 when trump came to las vegas in part to attend wynn's wedding and to promote his own hotel tower? donald trump: my friend steve wynn is here. ((george knapp)) and we saw something similar back in february when trump won the nevada caucus. his pal steve was front and center. donald trump. mrs and mrs. steve wynn. stand up and take a bow.... just a year ago, national media reports described wynn as a key campaign advisor to trump. and a few months ago, wynn hosted a new york meeting of trump
5:14 pm
that he hasnt given a dime to either trump or hillary clinton and doesn't know how he will vote. maybe it harkens back to old wounds. at times the two titans have been fierce rivals, especially in atlantic city. news reports say both men hired private detectives to dig into the other. they've tangled in court, and especially in the media. trump called wynn a scumbag and suggested he is psychologically disturbed. wynn has said trump is a string adolescent. trump said wynn is strange and slick and tries too hard to look perfect. worst of all, he described the bellagio as "very ugly." wynn said most of trump's statements have no relation to the truth, that he is disturbed, pitiable, and broken, and said trump's atlantic city is "a slum by the sea." back in 1989 when we first interviewed trump in new york, a
5:15 pm
but he had previously demeaned wynn by saying maybe wynn could work for him some day. trump had also taken shots at another las vegas rival barron hilton, described as a quote member of the lucky sperm club. since then trump named his youngest son barron. some of the rivalry has an alpha male air to it---you know, whose is bigger? and by that i mean casinos. wynn used to feud with sheldon adelson too, and now they're friends and allies. million to trump's presidential campaign, but hasn't done it, likely because trump didn't pick newt gingrich as his running mate. in decades past, las vegas casinos would donate money to both sides in major races. they wanted to have a friend in office no matter who won. like the rest of the country though, a partisan chasm is now evident on the strip. mgm ceo jim murren, a republican, came out strong for hillary clinton this week.
5:16 pm
we mortals will never be able to figure out what goes on inside the minds of mega-moguls like donald trump and steve wynn, but we sure have enjoyed the fireworks over the years. it's a lot more fun to watch when they're not getting along. ((weather toss))
5:17 pm
from the area. dewpoint remain high enough for the risk of more t'storms maybe this evening, but should be isolated in nature. ................................ ... .................. temps around the valley in the 90s through many neighborhoods with the warmest temps typically valley and southeast sections. not as warm for the foothills and the northwest part of the region. we're below normal for temps but not much. the clouds also helped keep a lid on any daytime warming from the sun. ....................... ............ ................... regional temps also stayed warm but still hot over in death valley where they had more sunshine. warm down the colorado river valley from mesquite all the way down to laughlin. more tolerable temps in the central great basin with those areas inthe 80's to low 90's. ........ ........................... ................ radar shows very little
5:18 pm
a shield of clouds helped keep a tight lid on any storm development this morning and afternoon. now with clearing and us getting to the hottest part of the day, there is still slight chances for t'storms mainly east of i-15 and better chances for southern clark county. mostly in mohave county. ....... ............................ .................. futurecast shows we get a better break from those storms chances tomorrow but it's sunday we see the return of showers and low pressure that will drift in some rain from the south. shower and storm chances also return for monday through tuesday as well before we see a drying trend by wednesday and more sunshine. ................................ ... ................. so the forecast is calling for temps in the 80's by morning with clouds and some clearing. expect muggy condtions this evening with slight hit and miss shower chances as well. tomorrow expecting temps near 100 and partly to mostly sunny through the day. very slim chances for showers but the possibility is out there more points east of the valley. ................................ ... ..................... extended forecast calls for

the 90's stilshowers chances ry and through early week with sunday d monday being our best shot for some rain. drier mid to late week next week as temps climb back to near average

david was proud to be an american soldier. and i know i'm prejudiced because he was my son, but i don't think he had a mean bone in his body. when i saw donald trump attack another gold star mother, i felt such a sense of outrage. "she was standing there, she had nothing to say..." if donald trump cannot respect a gold star family, then why would anyone in america think he would respect them.

the verbal war has been going on for a while... but now the time has arrived... today's weigh in had the nevada athletic commission right on the stage. mcgregor at 168, diaz at 170 1/2 the fighters had to be on their best behavior... they posed and tried to intimidate each other... but everything went off without a hitch. (( )) conor mcgregor/: he should have killed me when he had the chance and i'm going to kill you and nats> nate diaz; "he's already dead from the last time. i'm a new guy a killer can't be killed again. ((chris maathuis)) range from 250 to about 13-hundred. tickets are still available they range from 250 to about 13-hundred. but by tomorrow night it should be sold out. ((chris maathuis)) today's scrimmage was open to the fans, so about 100 unlv football fanatics showed up to see what tony sanchez has to work with this season. it's a work in progress, but
5:24 pm
strides toward success. the determined defense definately stole the show at today's scrimmage. there is still no clear cut starter at quarterback... both kurt palendech and johnny staton had their moments... but also made critical mistakes at important times. you could sense their frustration.. average is no longer acceptable at unlv. (( )) johnny stanton/quarterback: "we didn't have any wow factors today.. had some strong drive and didn't finish.. i had a pick in the end zone, had a strong drive, but those first two weren't good." kurt palandech/qb:' we had a couple of screwups and i take responsibility for that when i'm in there. we've got to make the most of our ryan mcaleenan/linebacker; "i think everybody is more familiar with everything... which means we're getting more consistant." tony sanchez/coach; "one side does good, the other side struggles then the opposite, offense had a long drive and a touchdown .. you want give and take not one side dominating more then the other... that's why scrimmage are kind of a funny thing especially for a head coach because you want to see the defense have success, you want

((chris maathuis)) in mens' basketball... usa edges out spain 82-76... klay thompson led the americans with 22 points in the teams' lowest scoring game since 2004. the gold medal game is next against either australia or serbia.

apologized for his behavior surrounding a late-night incident at a rio de janeiro gas station. in a post on instagram lochte says he should have been more "careful and candid" about how he described what happened. the ioc is now looking into the matter.
