2:31 am
from the results of an internal police probe and preliminary findings from the medical examiner's office but a spokesman from the medical examiner the tells the new york times it's still ongoing. he said we don't know preliminary findings. this is just after the washington post said another prisoner said he was banging against the wall trying to hurt himself. the man is telling a different story. >> once you got in the van what did you hear? >> i didn't hear nothing. we went straight to the police station. i heard a little banging for about four seconds. i heard little banging. just this just little you know what i mean? boom boom. just little banging. >> allen describe whad he told homicide detectives when questioned. >> did you the tell the the police you heard him banging his

parents taking away from this week's unrest. our correspondent filed this report for us from baltimore. >> of more than 35 juveniles arrested, many of them had no criminal record and for some being in police custody was shocking. and baltimore streets erupted in flames earlier this week carlos brooks couldn't believe what he was seeing. >> i was sitting in the house looking at it on tv and was just shocked it was going on. >> reporter: he immediately thought of his second oldest child, his sixteen-year-old son. >> my dad called me and told me don't go out there. don't go out there. he told me. >> reporter: but what did you do? >> went out there at nighttime. thought i was slick. thought i was being sneaky. >> reporter: for the first time ever with no previous record he was arrested. his dad says for looting.

2:41 am
reserve will do with interest rates. that means the cost of money might go up and the markets get nervous about that. that chipped us down on thursday across all the major indexes. this can be a difficult month. people think about packing up their tragd for the summer. but we'll have to wait and watch to see just exactly how firm this data is. some interesting indicators. we've seen an improvement in the initial jobless claims. 262,000 for the month. that was 34,000 better than we saw in the previous month, and that is at a 15-year low. signs that people are finding work here and i don't know how your salaries figuring out compared to last year but apparently we're also getting higher salary compensation rewards. 2.6% increase year on year in
