build. flashing lights visible at some points here. and for the alternate route, here's what i would suggest. we are getting very busy north of i-70. use the southbound lanes of havana to link up with the westbound mlk junior boulevard. then mlk to northbound colorado. this will be a huge delay. that. try and avoid that area if you can. right now police are investigating a shooting in lakewood near center avenue and cody street. police say that a neighbor tried to stop someone from breaking into a car. that neighbor got shot and then the suspect ran away. police say the car didn't belong to the victim. we'll bring you more information as we get it. we are trying to sort it all out. good morning, everybody, a

this was caused by equipment failure or something else. investigators just confirmed this morning they have pulled one of the black box recorders from the back of the train. this black box contains the information on the train's speed and braking at the time of the crash. right now they say it still isn't safe for investigators to get the second recorder from the engineer's compartment because of the collapsed roof and the possibility of asbestos in more than 100,000 people use new jersey transit to commute every day. the new jersey portion will stay closed today. a lot of questions surrounding positive train control, that technology that can slow down a train and bring it to a stop, i'll look into that coming up at 6:30. >> thanks a lot, colleen. 6:04 now. pretty bold to rob a bank that was already robbed earlier
