6:01 am
school authorities said it all began when an 8th grade student was caught trespassing at the high school...was told to leave...and refused. when the kid's sister got involved, thats when the crowd gathered, heckling the recording everything on their phones (nats screaming) "what made you want to pull out your cell phone? that he was hitting him" at about :14 seconds can see what appears to be a rock hits the officers head...right before he pulls out the pepper spray. however another video shot from a different angle...does not show that rock....although its not clear if the second video was taken at the same time as the first...if not....that could indicate the officer sprayed the students before he was hit....or contined to do it afterwards. school police made no mention of a rock in a statement released to action news describing what happened. some students are still upset..having been suffering with burning eyes and throats for hours. "i have ashtma and when he sprayed it i started coughing and lost my voice. i only got it back 20 or 30
6:02 am
this third video taken by luis zepeda...he says this is a school administrator talking- telling him to delete the evidence "erase it right now" we did show this video on our earlier newscasts ...and had a lot of calls and emails coming in defending the officer "i saw like four guys in the car with the trunk open and i see them carrying this big flat-screen tv." a teenage boy who was in the right place at the right time helped catch four burglars in northwest las vegas. the middle school student was out of school early yesterday when he saw four strangers carrying televisions out his neighbor's house. he called police and they soon spotted the suspect's car. while the suspects were driving to get away from the officers...they crashed at cheyenne and rancho -- not too far from the burglarized home. they hit and injured three pedestrians -- including a

6:04 am
outside the hotel..... while multiple gunmen reportedly attacked the building... taking hostages. (yannick sawadogo, survivor of the attack) "it's horrible because everyone was panicked and was laying down on the floor. there was blood everywhere, they were shooting at people at point blank." right now, secruity forces are searching nearby hotels making sure no other extremists are hiding there... this marks the third terror attack in 4 days targetting western nationals. back here in the u.s.... some frightening moments on board an american airlines flight from new york to miami. several passengers and crew members were injured when the jet flew into some severe turbulence. abc's david kerley talked with some passengers.. who describedthe moment it happened. that flight attendant..with the bloodied nose... on a stretcher... the american airlines jet heading to miami... into this weather...hit severe turbulence... passengers were screaming... children crying... sot: rosemarie aveloo/passenger "it felt like a roller coaster, it was just very uncomfortable, and everybody was afraid." nats - american 1410, we have one flight
6:05 am
and we have several minor injuries to passengers other planes were hit too.. severe turbulence... can toss people... their belongings... even heavy drink carts around the cabin. david kerley stand-up predicting turbulence like this, has always been the problem, but some new software is giving pilots a view inside the storm we were on this test flight... around miami recently ... where these pilots aim for trouble.. nats: dk: well we're headed right for this turbulence? rr: yes, we are. dk: on purpose. green...means go... a path through the storm.. when we have actually flown through those areas, it has been smooth as glass, there hasn't even been a ripple. technology... which may help prevent these dk abcn washington the chief operating officer of las vegas-based allegiant airlines stepped down. 52-year old steven harfst was only in that position for a little more than a year.

a woman is undergoing a mental evaluation after threatening to jump from an overpass along us-95 near lone mountain. chopper-13 was first over the scene yesterday morning to show you the traffic.. backed-up for miles.. as crisis negotiators tried to talk her down. michael rodriguez metro pio ((at the end of the day the most important thing is public safety and we realize that some - many people - will be inconvienced we need to possibly save someone's life and that's what we were working to do in this circumstance.)) they eventually succeeded about an hour later.. and the freeway was allowed to reopen. metro has a man in custody after a burglary attempt .. followed by an intense manhunt. take nat 3 seconds 6:57:42 helicopter flying a police helicopter was over the search for more than an hour after someone broke-in to a mcdonald's around 4am he took off in a car.. but ditched it near torrey pines and vegas drive and started running. the suspect was eventually caught..
6:26 am
while chopper-13 was overhead. it's still unclear how he was injured. investigators are now looking for a possible connection to a series of 'night owl' break-ins we've told you about at restaurants around the valley. dozens of people living at a valley apartment complex say they spent more than a week when you ask.. we investigate. the residents at canyon pointe say the hot water stopped flowing in a handful of buildings on january 5th and wasn't back on until the 13th. southwest gas tells action news a construction crew hit a line and they couldn't turn the gas back on until it was fixed. but residents say they had no communication from management.. and they've only been offered 10-dollars for the week without water. john hamilton lives in canyon pointe 17.07.08 the most upsetting fact is that they really didnt keep us informed 12 they didn't keep us informed 13 a manager from canyon pointe called us refused to comment. we then reached out to to the management company.. but after trying seven extensions no one answered. according to nevada law.. hot water is an essential

new data shows women are waiting longer to become
6:29 am
the c-d-c says its been rising for the last 15-years. the average age of women having their first child has risen to 26. back in 2000, it was just under 25-years- old... by 20-14... it had risen to 26. researchers say this is partly because there are fewer mothers under the age of 20. in fact, the teen birth rate has hit an all-time low. economic factors also play a role... with an increased number of women putting off motherhood for higher education or a career. this also has ramifications for the u-s population. having children later in life means fewer child-bearing years, and therefore, fewer children. one area of concern, doctors say older women having children increases a mothers risk of complications... like gestational diabetes, and passing on genetic defects.
6:30 am
can do a little celebrating... this weekend. the board of trustees unanimously approved.... a new -2- year contract for the teachers.... the -1- hundred -35- million dollar contract includes.... pay raises for the more than.... -18- thousand teachers. that includes.... -4- salary increases.... over the next nine months.... that will be based on education and experience... capping off... at - 90- thousand dollars a year. as part of the deal... the base salary for new teachers goes up from.... -35- thousand to -40- thousand dollars. the school district will need to make cuts... to school maintenance... and payroll... in order to pay for this contract... but... no lay-offs are expected. turning to the race for the white house... campaigning is in full swing in iowa as the time is running out before the iowa caucauses.... democrats are gearing up for their debate in south carolina tomorrow... and ahead of that debate, former president bill clinton is showing support for his wife, democratic frontrunner hillary clinton. the former president made several stops in iowa towns
6:31 am
support for the former first lady... but instead of attacking bernie sanders, who's gaining traction on hillary's lead, bill clinton decided to take a stab at the republicans at a rally in marshalltown, iowa.... (president bill clinton) i'm proud to be a member of my party when i look at the republican debates because they seem to talk about a universe i don't live in. the democratic debate is tomorrow...sanders and clinton will be joined by martin o'malley who barely made the cut to get into the debate. republican presidential candidate donald trump showed a bit of his softer side... in iowa. trump got to meet one of his biggest fans, 28-year-old shawn norman, during a stop in urbandale. norman has noonan syndrome, a genetic disease. he told his parents that his biggest wish before dying would be seeing trump get elected. a campaign worker says trump heard about norman's story and wanted to meet him. when good morning las vegas's the tallest building west of the mississippi... we're talking, of course, about the stratosphere...but do you
