5:08 am
moving a tv is a real pain. would that be easier if i had prism tv from centurylink?
5:09 am
which makes it pretty easy. let me show you. i could move it here... or here... even here. switch to centurylink. get the prism essential tv package with internet for only $70 a month for one year with autopay enrollment. didn't even break a sweat.
5:10 am
>> dana: at 5:10 a.m. on a thursday, we have breakings new. federal officials have decided to bring charles against the ex-neighbor of the san bernardino shooters. >> kim: several law enforcement officials are telling nbc news right now, that those first criminal charges stem from the massacre and they're being brought against the man you see pictured on your screen, enrique marquez, a longtime friend and former neighbor of the gunman, syed rizwan farook, those charges, we're told, could be filed as early as today. we'll stay on top of this developing story. it is now 5:10 a.m. and so far, it's been relatively calm in baltimore, after it was just announced by a judge yesterday that they have a hung jury in the first of the freddie gray death trials. >> dana: gray died in police custody after suffering a broken neck while being taken to jail. there were protests after the
5:11 am
at least two people were arrested, but the streets have mostly been calm. william porter, the officer, was the first of the six officers charged in gray's death. prosecutors and attorneys for that police officer plan to meet in the judge's chambers later today to discuss a possible retrial. >> kim: it is now 5:11 a.m. and we want too give awe heads up that the video we're about to run on the broadcast is disturbing, but we're also going to stop it short from the most disturbing images. let me set the scene here. this is in a small town of california, the sheriff's department releasing this video, you see a deputy talking to a man on the street, the man pulls a knife, rushes toward the deputy and this is where we're going to stop the footage because shots are fired. hospital. the sheriff's office also releasing a picture, you just saw a moment ago of the knife that the suspect had on him, also saying that the suspect had a cellphone in his other hand
5:12 am
neither the suspect's name or the deputy's name is released. the deputy had no other choice but to pull the trigger because the suspect was rushing toward him, authorities say. >> dana: a tractor is rolling slowly down the street. and they can't get it to stop. so a sheriff's deputy is able to climb into the cab and stop that tractor-trailer before it crashes into anybody. that's sergeant todd voltz, why was it doing this? the driver of the tractor-trailer had a diabetic episode, so he was unable to control the tractor-trailer, the driver of the truck is expected to be ok. >> kim: it is now 5:12 a.m. and we have a "wake up with the wagners" exclusive. it has to do with those double a batteries, and you're going to be buying those this holiday season if you have toys or electronic deep advices or gadgets that need them. but do you need to buy the expensive name brand batteries to keep the gadgets up and running?
5:13 am
justicjust tested 15 double a batteries to see which last the longest. it's all fun and game until the batteries run out. "consumer reports" looked into which batteries you should buy to keep everything chirping, chiming, and chugging. but there are so many brands to choose from. >> double a batteries i can range from 62 cents a pair to $5 a pair and that's a big price range. >> kim: "consumer reports" put 15 double a batteries through a battery of tests. they simulated the typical use of toys and flashlights, and now, the big question -- which lasted the longest? >> overall, the lithium batteries did tops in our tests, but so did some of the act akal lines at half the price.
5:14 am
buy for batteries is kirkland's signature alkaline, sold in large value packs, to these pair cost only $1. when it's time to change the batteries in your devices, always use batteries that are all the same age, brand, and type. and then that old wife's tail about keeping batteries in the fridge to prolong their life. "consumer reports" says, don't bother. keep your batteries in a cool, dry place, and they will likely last for about seven years. "consumer reports" also says not to keep those batteries, or your battery powered devices in extreme heat for extended periods of time, because they can leak and rupture. also, don't keep batteries in your pocket, because they could rub against spare change, causing them to short circuit. >> dana: i never heard that one before. that's interesting. >> tom: leaky batteries is a sure sign. >> dana: you've had that before,
5:15 am
forget about for years. >> tom: like a flashlight i haven't looked at for a couple of years. >> here's the other thing with extreme heat. your garage door clicker, a lot of people put it up on the visor and you keep visor to keep the shade in place. i've had the battery leak from the clicker because it was holding the shade up. >> tom: like a scene from aliens. >> dana: what's happening in terms of traffic? >> tom: we have one accident on the valley far west side at the intersection of qualapy and charleston. police are on the scene of that one. the problem we had downtown in terms of fire, these cleared up. rainbow speeds are looking good in the low 60's, just below the speed limit. into the bowl on summerlin parkway, no problem whatsoever. the 215 coming in, looks good, as well as i-15, so travel times up to speed in the spaghetti bowl. busiest intersection in the state of nevada.
5:16 am
let's get to kelly in the >> kelly: yesterday was one of the days you look out the window and you say oh my gosh it looks gorgeous and you take two steps outside and say maybe not. we had a lot of sunshine out there yesterday as well. as far as what we were expecting, as we head throughout the day today, mostly sunny skies. 49-degrees, that's what we're anticipating as far as the 3:00 p.m. now here's a look at the temperatures hour-by-hour as we continue to head through the day. 50 degrees right around 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon. now, here's a look at the time lapse from yesterday, we had all that sunshine across the area. clear blue skies, looks so great, even rain, i didn't want to be outside for any length of time yesterday and the temperature right now, as you're heading out the door, 30 degrees, north las vegas, and downtown, below freezing, blue diamond, you're at 21. henderson, just at 31 degrees. the good news is though, as far as the winds are concerned, we're really not looking at much, so that is definitely good
5:17 am
look at the seven day forecast and when we could see highs returning to the 60-degree mark coming up. >> dana: 5:17 a.m. now. time to take you live to the floor of the nasdaq in midtown manhattan, and you're warmer there than we are here in las vegas. what the heck is going on? >> the reporter: it's going to be almost 70 on new year's eve or on christmas eve. >> dana: stop it. jane right now is wearing shorts, people don't know that, but i do. jane, the best performing casino of the year, i'm thinking belagio, the wynn? >> the reporter: the gaming industry, they've dealt with problems, but sands bethlehem, that's las vegas' smallest casino, that's the only one that improved performance. the pennsylvania location benefited from some of the big cities like philadelphia and new york.
5:18 am
that has driven the state for the number two spot for gaming behind only nevada. >> dana: they're building a new airport in boulder city, this >> the reporter: just for drones. construction started on this airport in boulder city, it hopes to attract hobbyist, government officials, rescue workers, private businesses who are all eager to find a spot where they can fly and test their zones, built itself as the world's first only drone airport. >> dana: we know that the fed raised interest rates yesterday for the first time in almost a decade, just a small amount. but what we really want to know is it, how that impacts us, the consumer. >> the reporter: absolutely. well, you're not going to feel it overnight, although there are some banks already raising loan rates. wells fargo raising loan rates, but not rates on depositors, it doesn't seem fair, but the short-term rates, we're talking about savings accounts, credit cards, auto loans, that is where you will people the pinch first on the loans, they're likely going to go up soon, if not already.
5:19 am
floor of the nasdaq. thank you very much. now here is kim. >> kim: 5:19 a.m. let's get you in the loop las vegas and we begin with the winner of "the voice," live from new york city as we take in a greatly look at the fabulous troop at rockefeller -- tree at rockefeller. right there behind the tree is where jordan smith will be on the "today" show. he just won $100,000 in that recording contract tuesday night of this week, right here on channel 3 and we'll have a sneak peek of his appearance live on the "today" show this morning, right here on "wake up with the wagners." so once he gives that interview to the "today" show crew, our crew here in town is going to turn that around and to make sure you can hear from jordan before the "today" show even starts. from new york city, across the pond to london, a greatly look at the tower bridge in all of its glory and we now know that duchess kate is taking on a new role. she hash named the new honorary air commandant of the erika deaths. what does that mean?

5:27 am
scary accident. this did have a happy ending. the driver of a small tractor-trailer turned right in front of a truck, causing the two vehicles to collide. the crash destroyed the tractor, scattering debris all over the road, threw the driver up into the curb but the drive made it out alive with only a broken hand and bruises. dramatic video for sure. >> kim: wow. that is something. right around here, i know that it is freezing in many places, in our viewing area, and so that could lead to slick roads. kelly, you have the details on that. >> kelly: luckily the roads are wet, but we haven't had any rain, but we have runoff from people watering theirs lawns and that can make for icy patches. you want to slow down, take it easy and bundle up on your way in. 49 degrees though by noon. 51 at 3:00 p.m. that's still below normal. warmer temperatures are on the way for the weekend, but also a chance for rain. i'll have more on that coming up. >> tom: we are starting off in good shape, with just one
5:28 am
the travel times are all up to speed for the moment. you're. coming from. outside view from the spaghetti bowl, 95 and rancho and a few the asphalt. no major tieups so that's good >> kim: imagine if you're sitting in a local doctor's office waiting for your appointment, someone busts in and it's armed, it's dangerous and you watch this play out in front of you. >> dana: and they are they're a shootout that goes on outside the doctor's office. michelle velez joins us close tomsto -- joins us from umc with what happened. >> the reporter: you say this played out like a scene of law & order, and it did, it was very dramatic, you have three victims, two suspects. in the end, one of the suspects dead. believed to be injured. so i'm going to step out of the way for a moment so you can see where it happened. it happened in this building
5:29 am
learned that this was a dental office and here's how police say this whole thing played out. a man and a woman who were wearing masks bust into this dental office, just after 7:00 p.m. last night, there was an employee, a patient, and a doctor inside, the two suspects forced the employee and the patient into a room, then they pistol whipped the doctor. they were demanding money hand possibly drugs according to police. well, the employee was able to get out and he ran outside, he went to his car, grabbed a gun and came back and confronted the two suspect. they were trying to escape through a stairwell in the back. there was a shootout between them. the woman suspect, she was hit, she eventually died at the scene. the other suspect, the male in this case, he got away, but police believe that he is injured, because they found a trail of blood leading from the stairwell into the back parking lot and so now they are looking
5:30 am
so three crime scene here, the dental office, the parking lot blood. and kim and dana, police also say that they believe that the female suspect, who died, may have possibly been a former patient at this doctor's office, so maybe this was a targeted situation here, obviously, they came in looking probably for drugs, and money. and they really don't have much to go by as far as a description of that suspect, who got away, except that it is an african-american man, 5'7" to 5'8". but keep in mind, this person is likely injured, so i don't think it's going to take them very long to find this man, because he has a gunshot wound and eventually at some point he'll need medical attention. >> dana: wow, what a dramatic scene playing out right here in las vegas. thank you very much for that michelle. thank goodness, it could have been worse to me, right? >> kim: of course. >> dana: one suspect dead, one injured, but to doesn't sound like anybody was seriously injured, at least inside doctor's office. >> kim: as that continues to be
5:31 am
live report with michelle a little while later in the broadcast, but right now the suspense is over for this one. we have a clear picture of who the new owner of the las vegas review journal is. there's the headline on very paper we're talking about, they ended up saying that patrick dumont, the son-in-law of sheldon adelson helped put the deal together. the paper sold last week to a group called news and media capital group l.l.c. the review journal reporting that dumont put the $140 million deal together at the behest of his father-in-law. it is the second time in a year that the newspaper has been sold, and now, sheldon adelson is the big local name, the big local billionaire name, attached to this paper, and so why do people care who owns the local paper? because there could be a bin laden, they want to know -- there could be a bent, they want to know who owns the paper so they can filter what they are reading in the paper. >> dana: we know that israel is
5:32 am
his wife miriam and he paid $40 million more than what it sold for a year ago, so he really, really wanted the r.j. >> kim: some people say in is mean because he wants to get his message out. all we have to do is continue to read and then we'll know. 5:35 a.m. and you can experience the north pole right here in las vegas. >> dana: kyndell nunley hanging out with santa claus this morning. kyndell, this is an awesome experience for children hall across the las vegas valley. >> the reporter: yes. and quite honestly, all ages too. right now, we are in fashion show mall at adventure to san that. now, this is a very, very interactive cool space for families to come, especially around this time of year. as you can see, they even have the ability to make it snow. so there's santa, as you can see, live on your screen this morning. now, it starts with dreamworks theme, so shrek, it ends with santa. the kids are able to go inside the house, and really just take part in the interactive
