involving a woman and a man, and they do have a man in custody. the next one that happened, which happened in the overnight hours, happened very near where we're standing right now, which is at the overpass at lamb and i-15 and we have video, we really don't have a lot of information on this shooting. all we know is that police say that this happened between two drivers, at least that's what we think it was between two cars, i should say, two cars involved, and i'm not sure how many people were in these cars. but we know that a woman was shot and killed here at the scene, and our photographer, sam, who had been here all night long, says that the focus of the investigation centered around two cars near the on-ramp, one was underneath the overpass on the freeway and one was pulled over to the side, appeared to be possibly getting on to the freeway, and that's all we know. so we're working to get more information, kim and dana, hoping that police will be able to update us with more, but at
confirm that a woman was killed here at the scene. i don't even know if they have a suspect in custody, or if they have a suspect in mind, somebody that they're looking for. they just could not give us that information. so we're going to stay out here on this very cold monday morning, and try to gather more information and we'll let you know if we have more headed your way throughout the show. and also the cw show, kim and dana. >> dana: michelle, thank you. right now, information coming out in drips and drabs, but we will get more information later on today. >> kim: it is now 5:05 a.m. and it's going to happen right here in our own backyard on the fabulous las vegas strip. the big debate, tomorrow night for those republican presidential candidates. it will be over at the venetian as we take a live look on your screen. and now, he is going to be in the main debate again. remember, he was at the kid's table debate is what they call it or the jv debate. new jersey governor chris christie will join eight other candidates in the primetime republican debate here in town. he was dropped from the main
debate because of low polling numbers, but he has rebounded since. donald trump will also be there. ben carson, senator ted cruz, senator marco rubio, carly fiorina will be on the main stage, so will florida governor, former florida governor jeb bush as well as john kasich from ohio. all of those hopefuls will be on the main stage, but then, also, we've transitioned to, again, the jv debate, if you want to call it that. mike huckabee, rick santorum, lindsay graham, george pataki, they will be part of the happy hour debate, they have several different monikers for that and both broadcast on cnn. we are hoping because we are partners with cn in to take you live inside the venetian. >> dana: speaking of politics, if the presidential election were held today, hillary clinton would lose to two top republicans. however, a new nbc news-"wall street journal" poll shows that
donald trump head-to-head, would also beat ted cruz by three however. ben carson and marco rubio would both beat her. of the field. in a new national bowl, donald trump, only five percentage points ahead of ted cruz and ted cruz has actually mulled in front of trump in iowa, the iowa caucus february 1, it's coming up here in 49 days. >> kim: well, terrorists and isis in particular have been the main focus as of late and we have a lot of locals from different faith that is got together and said the bad people are the quote unquote, bad people. not all muslims are bad and there's been a backlash as of late, so the different community leaders from different faiths getting together to stand in solidarity. more than 200 locals from different backgrounds gathering to focus on the message of tolerance and love, and that's what you're seeing right here on your screen. political leaders have been calling for a halt to bringing many syrian refugees to the
concern that isis could infiltrate that group, but many local muslims say isis is violator of islam and others are rallying with them now to make sure that the terror groups stays at bay and that, quote unquote, peace-loving muslims don't see the backlash they've been seeing as of late. >> just -- hopefully our presidential leaders will find that the perspective of bringing us together instead of trying to pull us apart. >> kim: so all these different people from different religions, backgrounds, getting together, and also, they're looking ahead to the big debate tomorrow, right here in las vegas, they know that isis will be a focus, but they're hoping it stays on isis and nod on muslims. >> dana: i heard some people talking about this. they say this is one of the things that makes our country great is that people from all different religions can live together in peace in our country.
unquote, religious test in our country. >> dana: tuberculosis word scare, a nurse infects people she was working on at a hospital. how many people are being tracked for treatment. >> kim: taylor swift, just celebrated a birthday, but she's a giver. it's her fans who really soared and we'll talk about the big gift she gave them coming up. >> dana: and of course, spoiler alert. hollywood buzzing ago, the newest "star wars" movie set to premiere tonight. why some are saying, this is bigger than the oscars. and we also have a check of your weather forecast, as 49 degrees. if that's true, it's going to warm up one degree today from that temperature. it is a thermometer at the top of minions. i don't know how accurate it is. we'll show you how low we're
back to the program. and a story that we have been monitoring ever since it started, is the freddie gray story, and now, we're on verdict watch. it could come very soon and the very first of the trials associated with the death of freddie gray. >> dana: closing arguments expected to begin today for this man, officer william porter, the jury expected to make a ruling by wednesday or thursday of this week. freddie gray suffered a neck injury in april during a 45-minute ride to the police station in that police wagon. he died a week later. prosecutors say porter failed to put a seat belt on gray and ignored his cries for medical help. porter testified last week in his own defense. he didn't call paramedics because gray didn't appear injured and didn't say he needed help. >> kim: president obama is going to deliver a statement on his
he's going to do so after he meets with his national security council and he's doing that at the pentagon. he will deliver a statement following that meeting. the president addressed awful us, the entire nation last week, regarding terrorism and anti-muslim feelings within the united states. >> >> dana: and health officials trying to track down hundreds of babies and mothers who may have been exposed to tuberculosis at a california hospital by an employee 3. other workers may have also been exposed to this. the woman responsible for exposing possibly more than 800 people to t.b. is a nurse there in the maternity ward. t.b. scare was detected by accident on a chest x-ray and now the hospital trying to track down all the people that the nurse came into contact with. >> kim: if you don't like crowds, don't go to the post office today. it's going to be hopping. i would also do an emergency, down an emergency, before you get into that big crowd, because you know people are going to be coughing, that's just me going in to mom mode. this is a big deal today as far as getting the packages and
on time. the united states postal service says today is their official busiest mailing day of the year for all of those items. officials recommending sending packages by december 21st, let me give you that quick update. today is december 14th, but they say the deadline is the 21st for christmas arrival. the post office, estimating some 15.5 billion pieces of mail will be sent this holiday season. >> tom: they have do it yourself package delivery down at the grocery store near my house, that's what i use. just stick it in the box and let it go. >> kim: you don't have to stand in the long line over at the official post office. >> dana: in one of our local malls, again, with an albertson's in there, we have the post-it mailing centers. it's not associated with the post office itself. i'm sure it's going to be busy there too as well, but if you want to avoid the post office, there are ways to do that. >> tom: if you something oversized, sorry, you're out of
and stand in line. >> kim: i noticed, tom, when i went out this morning that the roads were a little damp out in the northwest section of town. >> tom: i guess there was sprinkles last night. we'll hear more about that from dane in just a second. there's no big problem. one accident, it's already in the clearing stages, it's over at tropicana and wynn road, just to the west of i-15. wells where around town, you do have continuing road work along flamingo, up and down flamingo, but we'll show you this little piece right here in the resort corridor, where you can see barricades are up, cars are having to go by without one lane. elsewhere, we're looking good as far as getting into the spaghetti bowl. travel times are fully up to speed coming in from the wells side of town or coming in from the southeast. here's an outside view there from our d-camera and it is looking smooth at the bowl and dana, i guess this is what passes for wintery weather here, even though we're a week away from official winter. >> dana: we're a week away from the first official start of winter, but from news 3, your weather authority, we had winds out there, preceding the cold
night. a few clouds at the lake mead marina, but gusty winds at times again today, dropped the temperatures down into the 40's, but these temperatures are going to drop another 15 degrees by wednesday morning. many places here in the las vegas valley when you wake up on wednesday, will be below freezing. green valley at from 01 degrees. currently. 46 in downtown las vegas motor speedway. and -- downtown las vegas. peak wind gusts into the 20's and 30's from our weather bug sites. 33 miles per hour in downtown las vegas. showers rolled in around 8:00 p.m., 9:00 p.m. in the valley in the local mountains. snow levels dropped to 4500 feet. light dusting of snow in the local mountains and just a few rainshowers here in the valley. all of that is now pressed mainly to the east of us. morning. they also had some blustery conditions into lincoln and nye counties as well. and again, we don't have much in the way of rain on the way for us again this morning. we may have a sprinkle or two,

like, dah, it's always at or near the top of the best places to ring in the new year. 2015, of course, nearing the finish line, las vegas also one of the more frugal places to ring in the new year. in particular, fremont street it says. known for its thrilling new year's eve party. admission is only $30, so not too shabby. >> kim: no. >> the reporter: low gas prices, maybe i'll head out there. fremont street this year. >> kim: i think we'll get a lot of visitors from southern california for sure. and then, jane, starbucks just cannot catch break this holiday season. they have all kinds of flack about their particular coffee cup and it not being merry christmas enough. now we're going to show pictures of this polar bear cookie that they haven't actually sold for some years, but now it's back and it has a red -- it looks like a scarf and people think >> the reporter: yeah. it's supposed to be a scarf. but someone posted a picture of it, and as you mentioned, it years. you know how the internet is,
this person says it looks like the polar bears have had their throats slit. the only problem, the starbucks, of course, according to buzz feet, hasn't sold this, so these photos are old. i would not have thought about that, if somebody hasn't done something about it. poor starbucks, they can't catch a break. >> kim: why they're not back. that is an old picture that's resurfaced, so they're taking some heat for a cookie that they aren't even currently selling anymore. ok, jane, thank you very much. we'll see you again tomorrow on the program. right now, quick time check. 5:20 a.m. let's get you in the loop, las vegas, and the force is back in hollywood tonight.
