be soon enough. a quick look at the maps shows southbound speeds onychite 25 -- on i-25 is a 20 minute drive from e-470 and out to the east a 35 minute commute between 225 and i-25. and gary and cory, that is all squeezed in just between 225 and peoria. >> avoid that area. thank you much for that. good morning. what a beautiful day it will be with temps in the 80s once again. marty is in the back we're fine if this weather lasts forever. >> would that it could. but it would get dry if we did that. we will get balance later in the week. for now we enjoy the sunshine. this is the divide near ridgeway in southwestern colorado. tremendous amount of color there. thanks to our friend don lewis for providing that. it has been dry here the last couple of days. we have a pretty slow-moving storm system in the gulf of california that wants to spin appropriate few showers boo western colorado today. they are going to have to wait until very late in the
6:02 am
the center of that storm to get anything going. so it is sunny yet again today. and cory, as you said, i think we will top 80. just barely top 80 during the day. no rain across the state. we have a few very light showers in arizona and in new mexico this morning. and those will start to move toward colorado by late in the day. but even at the dinner hour, we're not really anticipating much happening in southwestern colorado. it will be after that when we begin to see really light showers on the western slope. to actually show something in western colorado for some light showers. but they won't be very impressive. >> all right. marty, thank you. two shootings, three victims this morning. denver police are searching for the suspect or suspects after the late-night shootings. the first happened on south federal near yale and vassar at 8:00 p.m. two people were shot that are expected to survive. police are trying to gather information on whoever pulled the trigger. the second happened on the

6:04 am
thyfault. he was hit in may of last year while investigating an accident. so was his colleague trooper clinton rushing. rushing survived that crash. but thyfault did not. now here is how the crash happened. investigators say that the defendant, gebers, was fleeing from police another state patrol officer who was trying to pull him over for his headlights. they say he was high on meth and he intended to sell drugs when he started that chase. then he came upon the scene with cadhy rushing and that is when he hit them according to investigators. the defense for christopher gebers, they have an interesting defense in this case. they told the jury that he should not be held accountable for this because the trooper who was originally pursuing him should have seen that it was so dangerous that he should have stopped the chase. so in essence they are blaming the trooper who originally started that pursuit trying to pull over gebers when he fled. so we will see if that defense sticks. but we do know the jury at
6:05 am
three hours yesterday and they will return today. core question, they could reach a verdict. if they do, we will let you know. >> this trial has moved so quickly. tarhonda, thank you. wells county investigators think a 15-year-old student is behind an online threat about a shooting on halloween. greeley police say it was posted on facebook and suggested a school shooting involving clowns at franklin middle school in north ridge high school. investigators say none of the threats were credible. the wells county d. a. says clown threats are no laughing matter and anyone caught making threats d crime. it is back to the practice field today for legacy high school head football coach wayne voorhees. he was on the bus that crashed at d.i.a. earlier this month. two other coaches, matt kroupa and kyle rider and 15 football players were hurt. the bus driver was killed. coaches voorhees and rider spent two days in the hospital. rider is recovering at home. coach kroupa is still in the hospital. 5 after 6:00. a federal report has uncovered abuse at a center for people

6:13 am
drive times. they have dropped from 40 minutes right along that westbound stretch, 225 over to i-25 down to 12 minutes. so it looks like the crashes in havana, peoria and central park are about to clear out of there. but the long line of red going to take a while to work itself out. what a way to start the day. clear conditions around here this morning. we're tracking a storm down south. it is really easy to track because it is barely moving at all. just now working over the mexico-arizona border. we have a few clouds drifting in ahead of it. should work into the four corners late in the day. by late tonight we will start to see a few showers move into central colorado. summit county perhaps even berthed pass and over to grand county. a few light rain showers. going to be after -- way after sunset before that would happen. so the daylight completely clear for you here today. 70s, low eats at lower elevations. 60s -- low 80s at lower elevations.

6:15 am
for the growing community around the airport. 9 news reporter colleen ferrara is live outside construction site. this will impact all of us probably. >> reporter: it really wil because the four fire stations they have right now really focus on airfield rescues and they have to deal with everything else around the airport. having this new fire station right behind me will help this station and the crews focus on public safety. more outside of that airfield space. so ad out here. as you know it is always growing. this fire station right behind me to give you an idea, you may have seen it under construction. right off pena boulevard as you head towards the airport. 7 fifth and jackson gap street. station 35 will open in november. to start off it will have one engine, a low profile truck and reserve truck. but they have the capacity to hold four different vehicles. designed to look like an air plane hangar to keep with the feel of all the other buildings
6:16 am
not tax-pair funded. the money -- tax payer-funded. the airport uses some of the revenue it collects and reinvests it into new infrastructure just like this. the station is really here to serve the entire airport. but you may notice it helping you in an emergency. >> their first in response will specifically help service south cargo, the final approach area, all of the new infrastructure that is going in along airport city. there will be times in this immediate area because -- bus they are adjacent to it. >> reporter: so, they tell me that they will also have a snow cap right behind me in this new fire station. cory you can imagine a snow cat might be very, very useful. especially on those days where it is blowing like a blizzard out here on pena boulevard. i know a lot of us have been in that situation so that snow cat could come in very hand later on this winter. >> absolutely. you can see why they need that
6:17 am

6:22 am
of dust blowing into phoenix. it looks like something out of a movie. this dust cloud shut down several highways as it lowered visibility to near zero. no reports of any injuries but we do have to say while it might be scary-looking, it did help create a beautiful sunset. all right. that happens a lot in arizona, i think. >> yup. from homeless to heroes, to bed rest for their heads at night. we will talk about how being in the right place at the right off the streets this morning. but first, lots of problems on the roads this morning and amelia will bring us up to date. it is one of those day, gary. southbound 25 locked one a crash at 84th avenue. but good news across i-70. we will start first with our 84th avenue drive. here is a look at your southbound crash. it is blocking the express lanes as well as the center lane traveling through southbound. we're forced into the two right lanes. because of it the southbound delays track back to about 128th. washington and huron will help
