now. the crime scene expanding off and on over night. orange is blocked off at 27th avenue near camel back. the victim shot multiple time inside of his vehicle. authorities say they believe the gunshot wound caused him to lose control and slam right into this apartment. there were three people asleep inside at the time. they were evaluated by the fire department and miraculously, no one was hurt. numerous emergency calls did go into police right after the crash reporting gunshots. but or asleep at the time, it has been extremely difficult to piece this together. so again, a suspect on the loose, police don't have much information about that person or people. if you have any information, contact phoenix police. we're live in phoenix, jen wall, 12 today. thank you for the update. right now we're learning brand new details on an over night home invasion. team 12's brian west is live near 83rd avenue and mcdowell with the latest from there.

in the 1900s. white clothes were more functional than fashionable. they were worn to keep people cool when there wasn't air conditioning. naturally white clothing wasn't necessary when the weather got cold. that turned into a fashion rule that stuck for decades. however, now just about any stylist will tell you forget about it. you can rock your white jeans oratresses or whatever long after this weekend. -- jeans or you so can wear it year round. especially in arizona. let's get to your juicy question of the morning. one of ten women say no matter what they won't show this to their mother. what is it a grown woman is so afraid to show mom? any final guesses? >> i'm sticking with the belly button piercing. i'm going to be specific about the tattoo. i'm saying, what is it called
i'm saying one of those two. >> that's one way to say it. another way would be the one on the lower back. >> or in like a private area i guess. >> all right. the answer -- >> inside their fridge. >> really? e' >> seriously? >> for some people that's a big no no. you don't look inside someone's fridge in their house. that's more personal than the bed room. >> my mom is so sweet. she brings me groceries. she's always in my fridge. >> they're like you have no food. let me shop for you. because you need to eat. that's how parents are. that baffles me.
jeff's fridge. wow. i love that. 6:36 is the time now. sometimes when you're traveling. you meet people along the way who are so interesting. that's what happened to rob and sue. when she was on the way to gila bend, she met an old crab. >> home to friendly people and five old crabs. gila bend may only have a population of about 1700 but it's got twice meet earl and shirley carpenter. or earl and shirl. earl is gila bend's senior ranking old crab. >> how do you like living in gila bend? >> it's different let's put it that way. >> different than what. >> there's not a heck of a lot that goes on. >> earl may speak softly. but clearly he's not one to
>> well, i call the people the way i see them. >> so earl, you have earned quite the title. it is a distinction that not many people have. you are an old crab. >> that's what they call me. i'm an old crab. >> is that something to brag about? being an old crab? >> well, you might say so. i like being called an old crab. because she keeps calling me an old crab. >> they moved to gila bend from upstate new york in 1980. they've lived here for more than half as long as they've been married. >> how long have you been married? >> oh good lord -- >> 60 years i guess. >> so how does one earn the title of old crab? >> you have to be voted in. >> of course. there are strict campaign
dollar. whoever you're selling the tickets to. and all that money goes to the rotary club here in gila bend. they in turn take that money and give it to seniors that are graduating from the gila bend high school as a scholarship. >> people must have given a lot of money for you to be the old crab. >> i was the highest paid crab in gila bend. >> so if earl were to be voted out of office, who does he think would to fill his seat? >> the only old crab that i can think of right now would be -- i don't even want to mention his name. >> come on, you can say it. come on, say it. >> it's mr. trump.
welcome back everyone to 12 today. it's time for the morning mix. and it looks like americans are forgetting to take time off. so listen to this. more than 40% of u.s. workers day last year. and today, 41% of employers will have some staff working. hence us. happy labor day everyone. while americans are reportedly working more, they aren't the most over worked. surprisingly, turkey tops that list. with mexico not far behind. the u.s. actually came in at number 16. that surprised me. i thought we'd be a lot higher.
the most. >> the countries, on an international scale there, i thought we'd rank higher. >> it begs the question of why are americans working more and not taking vacation time? >> it's simple. if you can get paid for that time a lot of people say give me the money, i want to keep working type of thing. >> how many people realistically have that option. >> a lot of people work on holidays because you get time and a half. and it's less busy. so a lot of people are like i get time d work as hard as i would normally do, i'll take that. >> cell phones, tablets, i mean you're so technologically, you know, connected with work, that you're just -- you can't get away from it. >> even when you're off you're still working or thinking about work. for some companies, they make it difficult for people to take time off too. there's that issue as well. speaking of too much of things, we know you love
new numbers out show overwhelmingly americans are not fans of remakes and sequels from ghost busters to independence day summer was littered with sequels that under performed. sony will lose tens of millions on ghost busters. it got us thinking, is hollywood running out of good ideas ? >> i agree. they are running out of good ideas. behe you have to come up with something new and original. we were talking off air about cartoons. those are always new and fresh. comedies are always kind of new and fresh. when you're trying to do a blockbuster though, you have to think out the box now, just like music, been there, done that, seen it. so what are you going to show me? or how are you going to show me something completely different than i viewed it before? so that's why we were seeing --
was something different than no one's done. >> especially when they tackle a blockbuster that was huge that you don't want to see a sequel. and then it's like hollywood, don't you know better? the movies that i love the most are the ones based on a true story. and i think hollywood has kind of turned towards that. you see so many movies that are, you know, developed because it actually happened. >> right. and those are always, usually let us know what you think. in the mean time, it's 6:46. how's the labor day forecast looking? jimmy? jimmy? wake up? we're focusing on this storm here. it's pretty awesome here. with a chance of rainfall coming in toward the area. very interesting. okay. also. clear skies out there. 76 degrees. and 6:46 is our current time. 76 right now. the dew point is 39.
