5:03 pm
emotion across the country. >> i think, you know, the trump-esque wall building stuff is nothing but tear people apart and i'm not going to allow it here in philadelphia. >> reporter: some immigration groups, this is personal, they felt that philadelphia was a leader on this issue, making people more comfortable with the police and that the city could now take a step back. mayor nutter tells me as of now no changes have been made. live at city hall, lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. >> lauren, thank you. staying in the city now, philadelphia mayor jim kenney announced three more members of his administration today. mike diberardinis as managing director. he served for two philadelphia city mayors now. jane slusser will serve as chief of staff in the administration and otis hackney will be chief education officer. hackney is credited with turning around south philadelphia high as the school's principal. from our delaware bureau, it's been called murder town
5:04 pm
usa, and today the fight against that title in the newly announced network show is growing stronger in wilmington. the show would be called, you guessed it, "murder town." abc ordered a pilot of the legal drama and now real life religious leaders are angry. they got together a congregation to urge the city to fight harder against the show. the naacp says it's an insult to the city and to the families who are victims of violent crime. >> hope folks understand and go home and regroup and continue to stand firm to try to make changes here. putting our resources and talents together, we can make changes. >> city council sent a letter to executives in new york asking them to reconsider using wilmington as the location for the show. jerry sandusky is getting his pension back from penn state and it's worth almost $5,000 a month. a court's ruling today means the state must restore sandusky's

5:06 pm
>> kaye is now being held on $50,000 bail. if you know anything about him, call police. to our weather now. check out the wind outside legislative hall in dover, kent county. finally looks and feels like november outside, whether that's good or bad for you. it's a lot chillier than the last few days. live look over center city, philadelphia, now. the flag blowing for the first time this season we're starting to talk about wind chills. now let's talk to first alert chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. temperatures are dropping, glenn. >> yeah, absolutely, keith. wasn't all that cold this afternoon. it's taking a while for the cold air to start to come in, but those winds are bringing it in, and temperatures as we go through the rest of the night are going to continue to drop. it's down to 56 degrees in philadelphia. we got up to 59, down to 50 in most of those areas north and west and keeps dropping.
5:07 pm
the wind no longer is gusty as it was earlier today. we saw gusts up to 40 miles an hour as we go through the night tonight, we're going to find temperatures dropping into the 40s pretty quickly. by 8:00, and then later tonight as the wind -- as the temperatures go down into the lower 40s and even upper 30s in philadelphia when you add the wind, we're actually talking about a wind chill. even from the philadelphia area southward, so the wind chill by later tonight, if you headed out late tonight, take the heavier coat because it's going to feel like in the upper 20s in some of the suburbs. the temperatures are going to be going lower this weekend before we see a rebound. i'll get into those details in a few minutes. >> thank you. right now at 5:00, uber driver versus uber driver. it's a protest at philadelphia international airport. drivers with the more expensive uber black service say workers with the lower end uber x
5:08 pm
service are picking up passengers illegally at the airport. nbc 10's tim furlong joins us live to sort this thing out. tim, a lot going on around you. >> reporter: there is a lot going on. loud in the arrivals area. these drivers here drive through uber black, they are upset with the airport because they pay to be here like regular cabbies, play by the rules, use special lanes and wait for their turn to pick up customers, but they say regular uber drivers and drivers from an app called lyft come in and pick up people, they say those drivers even run into the baggage area and offer customers rides. they say this isn't fair, they say the airport isn't doing enough to keep the playing field level for the drivers who pay to be here. >> they have to understand what we go through if i'm making $8 an hour, this guy is also to be making the same or, you know, less, because he's not paying anything. it's just not fair with anyone.
5:09 pm
>> reporter: and i just got a call from the airport, and it turns out these two actually have a pretty good point. uber x drivers and lyft drivers are not technically allowed to work at the airport, something the utility commission ruled. philadelphia police are supposed to make sure they are not here but it's hard to enforce. they've been showing me the apps, you can track the apps and see where the drivers are. we have seen uber x drivers and lyft drivers here, who the airport says are not supposed to be here. these people are upset, they pay to be here and even the airport says they have a good point. live at the airport, tim furlong, nbc 10 news. >> thank you. right now at 5:00, pennsylvania attorney general kathleen kane has responded to a subpoena from the state senate committee investigating her. this all comes hours after her spokesperson said she would ignore it. kane handed over documents to the panel but told them she doesn't think it has the authority to recommend the legislature trying to remove her from office.

5:11 pm
getting hit by a car. witnesses say they saw the victim, they tried to help him, but then a car came down the street and hit him. witnesses say the man seemed groggy, so police are trying to figure out if he was intoxicating. the driver did stop. police say that person most likely won't be charged. and a gas pump turned into a cash machine for two men wanted by delaware state police. here's what we mean by that, a credit card skimmer was placed on a gas pump on the louis georgetown highway in dover. police say these two men then cloned the information and used it at a number of stores in wilmington and pennsylvania. if you recognize these men on your screen right now, call police. trump's tirade against dr. ben carson. we have highlights of his 96-minute speech insulting his closest competition and now how carson is responding tonight. plus, 1 in 45 children fall in the autism spectrum,

if i did the stuff that he said he did, i wouldn't be here right now. >> that's just part of what donald trump said about his rival ben carson in iowa last night. some people are calling it a tirade at ben carson. trump focused on claims carson made in his book and whether people would actually believe them. listen. >> how stupid are the people of iowa? how stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap? >> that's just a taste of what trump said against his republican rival. 1,500 people crowded iowa central community college to listen, and boy did they get a show. trump attacked carson's life
5:16 pm
story, he even reenacted the neurosurgeon's book claim that he once attempted to stab a friend as a child, seconds later said carson has an incurable pathological temper and even compared it to child molestation. >> but if you're a child molester, there's no cure. can't stop you. pathological, no cure. now, he said he was pathological. okay. >> today carson dismissed trump's personal attacks. he said he wouldn't engage trump in this kind of dialogue. meanwhile, many people are talking about this, a judge in utah just reversed his decision to take a baby away from her lesbian foster parents and place her with a heterosexual couple. the judge apparently pointed to research that shows children do better when raised in heterosexual homes. utah's division of child services say that went against their recommendation. the decision caused so much

5:18 pm
in the u.s. has an autism spectrum disorder. here's why. researchers changed how they asked parents about their children's developmental delays, also over the years the definition of what conditions fall under the autism spectrum is broadened. it's also possible some children were falsely diagnosed. joining us now to talk about this rise is carrie matthews, ceo and founder of james voice inc., the community group that works to enhance the lives of individuals diagnosed with autism. thank you so much for joining me. >> hi, thank you for having me, keith, i'm excited to be here today. >> let's start with perspective here, before i understand it was 1 in 68 kids, now it's 1 in 45. that's an alarming jump. what do you think is happening? >> well, you know, keith, there are several things that are happening. one, we're properly diagnosising children, which is extremely important. more of autism is being talked about so, therefore, parents are standing up and looking and asking the most important
5:19 pm
questions, and even better than that we're getting developmental pediatricians involved who can appropriately diagnose a child with autism. so often times parents think should my pediatrician be able to tell me my child is autistic and that's not all the time true. autism is not something all doctors have been specifically trained on to be able to identify in all kids. >> the methodology sounds like it's gotten more accurate. now we're hearing new numbers. what needs to happen next? >> i think the best thing that needs to happen next is, number one, on a federal level we need to make some definite changes and mandate some things so that autism is being accommodated in not only young children, but also adults who unfortunately missed some of the additional services that they could have gotten when they were younger. i think the next step, too, is that, you know, our world needs to accommodate restaurants, theaters, and doctors and professionals and teachers and churches, all of those things need to be trained or those
5:20 pm
people need to be trained so that we understand how to identify autism, accommodate those individuals living with autism and embrace families so there's no more isolation. >> thank you so much for taking the time. >> thank you so much for having me, keith. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> well, the wind has been howling during the day and it's bringing in colder air. it's not going to be a long lasting cold spell, though. the gusty winds, well, we're going to have some more of that tomorrow. maybe not quite as windy as today. setting us up for this chilly weekend, but the warmth is going to be returning next week. so it's not a trend toward a colder pattern. we've had a lot of sunshine today. 56 degrees right now. the winds really diminished at philly international. up to 40 miles an hour earlier. five degrees colder, though, than we were at this time yesterday and down to 50 in
5:21 pm
reading and allentown and pottstown, lancaster, about to go into the 40s. and before the night's over, yeah, going to be in the 30s. and some wind chills may end up being in the 20s. 56 degrees in dover, one of the warmer spots. there's the wind direction out of the west and northwest. the sustained winds now generally 10 to 15 miles an hour. still strong 20 in lancaster, but the trend is definitely to diminish, at least for a while. now, by sunday i don't expect it to be as windy as it was today or will be tomorrow. there will still be some breeze, maybe 10 to 20 miles an hour, but won't be as cold. 56 degrees at kickoff, 60 degrees by the fourth quarter. so that's pretty nice football weather for this time of year. we have that west wind now and it's important to see the direction, because there are some lake-effect showers and even snow flurries up there. the general trend, though, is straight west to east here, so
5:22 pm
at the most i think some of those flurries could end up grazing the poconos. this is the future cast, as you can see, and there are a couple little flakes perhaps early this evening up towards the poconos, but other than that dry through the weekend and into early next week. for the rest of the night, clear, much colder, chance of a flurry in the poconos. wind chills by morning, 25 to 32. been a while since we've used that term, hasn't it? tomorrow windy and colder, mix of sun and clouds, temperatures struggling to get over 50. average high is 57 for this time of the year. average 60 sunday after the cold start and look at these temperatures, 66 on monday. in the 60s it's about all of next week and maybe one day up to near 70 degrees. >> glenn, thank you. in case you missed the top of our show, we have breaking international news to tell you. we now know 35 people are dead
5:23 pm

5:27 pm
we've seen it all, we've probably seen this happen. maybe it even happens to you. embarrassing selfies posted on social media. well, now facebook says it's working to stop that from happening. the image recognition software may prevent uploading a late night selfie or other pictures you might want your friends to see. might not want them to see it, too. the feature would also warn before you share a picture of your children with more than just family. no date yet when the new feature will begin to roll out. switching gears completely. up next we continue to follow the breaking news out of paris. explosions and shootings across the center of that city. at least 35 people dead, about 100 people have been taken hostage. we'll take you back live to that scene and tell you what investigators are saying now when we come right back.

bataclan concert hall, where a concert was being held performed by an american band. at least 15 killed. that is where there is this ongoing hostage situation as we speak. anywhere from 60 to 100 people held hostage inside that concert hall. and, lester, we're hearing now of a fourth incident in central paris. >> right now to the white house, here's president obama. >> the facts across paris tonight. once again, we've seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians. this is an attack not just on paris, it's an attack not just on the people of france, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share. we stand prepared and ready to provide whatever assistance that the government and the people of
5:47 pm
france need to respond. france is our oldest ally. the french people have stood shoulder to shoulder with the united states time and again. and we want to be very clear that we stand together with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism. paris itself represents the timeless values of human progress. those who think that they can terrorize the people of france or the values that they stand for are wrong. the american people draw strength from the french people's commitment to life, liber liberty, pursuit of happiness. we are reminded in this time of tragedy that the bonds of liberty and eternity are not only values to the french people care so deeply about, but they are values we share. and those values are going to
5:48 pm
endure far beyond an act of terrorism or the hateful vision of those who perpetrated the crimes this evening. we're going to do whatever it takes to work with the french people and with nations around the world to bring these terrorists to justice and to go after any terrorist networks that go after our people. we don't yet know all the details of what has happened. we have been in contact with french officials to communicate our deepest condolences to the families of those who have been killed, to offer our prayers and thoughts to those who have been wounded. we have offered our full support to them. the situation is still unfolding. i've chosen not to call president hollande at this time, because my expectation is that he is very busy at the moment.
5:49 pm
i actually, by coincidence, was talking to him earlier today in preparation for the g-20 meeting, but i am confident that i'll be in direct communications with him in the next few days and will be coordinating in any ways they think are helpful in the investigation of what's happened. this is a heartbreaking situation and, obviously, those of us here in the united states know what it's like. we've gone through these kinds of episodes ourselves. and whenever these kinds of attacks happened, we've always been able to count on the french people to stand with us. they have been an extraordinary counterterrorism partner, and we intend to be there with them in that same fashion. i'm sure that in the days ahead we'll learn more about exactly what happened, and my teams will make sure that we are in communication with the press to
5:50 pm
provide you accurate information. i don't want to speculate at this time in terms of who was responsible for this. it appears there may still be live activity and dangers that are taking place as we speak. and so until we know from french officials the situation is under control and we have more information about it, i don't want to speculate. okay? thank you very much. >> president obama acknowledging the concern about what's happening right now in france, but notably has not contacted his counterpart in france. still dealing now with what we're hearing four different locations of attacks in the paris capital, in the french capital. the fourth one we've received information most recently about the la haal shopping area in paris where there's apparently been more attacks. there was a hostage taking at a concert hall, a shooting at a restaurant, an explosion outside
5:51 pm
a football or soccer stadium. nbc's ron allen is in the white house briefing room there. ron, can you tell us what's been happening over the last couple of hours in terms of what the president has been learning and what the white house has been learning? >> well, interestingly he had a conversation with the french president this morning because there's a g-20, a major submit of the world's wealthiest nations coming up this weekend in turkey. the president is set to head off there tomorrow. we asked if his plans will change. obviously, he didn't want to answer that at this point because the events are still unfolding, but clearly global terrorism will be an issue on that agenda. now much higher on the agenda, the event will actually happen a few hundred miles from the syrian border in a turkish mediterranean town. here the president, of course, monitoring the situation. he's been in touch with his advisers, obviously. earlier today there was a meeting with a former national security experts, former secretaries of state. the issues there is the
5:52 pm
president's trade initiative which he is trying to push on this trip, as well, but certainly the issue of isis and the attack earlier announced earlier today on jihad john and the other developments there in iraq and syria. no doubt on the agenda the president certainly trying to get as much input and information as he can and advice, probably, but here events still unfolding and we'll see what comes next. back to you, lester. >> ron allen, thanks. let's go back to kelly monitoring the reports out of france. kelly, as i go to you, that last causality figure we heard of 60 dead, that is coming from french television, correct? >> correct, lester. that's from bf mm tv, 60 dead i four separate attacks, the fourth a shopping mall in central paris. that number has not been confirmed by french authorities. in fact, the french police number is slightly lower at 35
5:53 pm
dead, but still, extraordinary and sad numbers here, lester, including that hostage situation, which is still ongoing at the paris theater, the bataclan, where an american rock band was playing tonight. we don't have a clear number on how many gunmen may be inside or how many hostages may be held. we have numbers anywhere from 60 to 100 inside that theater and others who were killed in the initial attack. reports of at least 15 killed in the initial attack on that theater. so once again, lester, the details are changing almost by the moment. still no firm information on the fourth attack, which has happened now in central paris. lester? >> this, of course, follows the trauma of last january, the attack of the offices of "charlie hebdo" newspaper and the terror that followed there.
5:54 pm
paris, no stranger to this kind of terror, but certainly, never in recent history on this scale. no one is officially connecting the dots, but let's put it in perspective, all this comes about two weeks of the bombing of a russian plane over egypt, possibly by isis. that's still being investigated. of course, yesterday's twin suicide bombings in beirut, isis claiming responsibility for that, and it comes just a night after the u.s. took out the jihadist known as jihadi john, the infamous isis executioner. he was taken out by a u.s. drone yesterday. no one officially connecting any of those dots, but just to give you some perspective of the environment right now, certainly in the middle east and certainly we have seen these sorts of things play out in france before. again, as we noted, the president making the statement a short time ago acknowledging he does not have a lot of specific information from france. they, obviously, have their
5:55 pm
hands filled at this moment, the hostage taking, trying to get a handle of where and when all this stops. this is still breaking as we're on the air. these are the pictures coming in from different parts of paris right now. the security service is now scrambling to different locations, sealing different areas off. the first two attacks were in the 10th and 11th, forgive my pronunciation, arrondissements, northeast of central paris. again, more pictures coming in, two explosions outside the soccer stadium and there you see the shots from outside the restaurant. we're continuing to put all this together. we are going to have full extensive coverage when we see you in just a short time on the east coast for nbc nightly news and across the board as events warrant. for now i'm lester holt, nbc news, new york. to recap, we know at least 35 people are dead in paris, as
5:56 pm
many as 100 people taken hostage after a series of explosions and shootings in four different locations there in paris. we'll keep covering the tragic situation. until then, let's send it over to first alert meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz to talk about the weather here in our area, feeling more like november, glenn. >> yeah, and it's going to feel more and more like that throughout the night tonight. temperatures are already dropping. we're down to 48 in quakertown, 49 in doylestown. 50 in kennett square, still some wind, but it has diminished somewhat over the last couple of hours. it's a colder wind coming in out of the northwest. the wind speed is down a little bit, but it's still adding to the chill and we're going to be feeling a bit of a wind chill later tonight and into the morning hours. the temperature goes down into the 30s in many parts of the area and the wind still up there
5:57 pm
to a small degree at least going to create the wind chill between 25 and 32 by tomorrow morning if you get up early enough. 37 for the actual low temperature in philadelphia, and during the day tomorrow, windy and colder with high temperatures barely above 50. coming up next on nbc 10 news at 6:00. >> we continue to follow breaking news. dozens dead, 100 hostages, the latest on the shootings, explosions, and hostage situation in france next on nbc 10 news at 6:00.
5:58 pm
5:59 pm
nbc 10 breaking news. >> nbc 10 news at 6:00 begins with breaking news out of paris, france. there are reports up to 60 people now dead after what police are calling multiple acts of violence in and around that city. this is video from outside a restaurant where more than ten people were killed in a shooting there. there's also been an explosion in a bar near a stadium where france and germany were playing a soccer match. listen in. >> france's president francois hollande was at the game and now meeting with a crisis team. paris' mayor told millions of residents, don't leave home. some live pictures now coming to us from paris.
6:00 pm
there was a third incident and now a fourth, we believe, unfolding. the third at a concert hall. we do know about 100 hostages are being held there. back here in the united states, homeland security is monitoring the situation in paris. president obama was just briefed in the past few minutes. he spoke. officials say there is no known credible threats against the united states. you just heard him speak and we'll have that for you right now. >> this is an attack not just on paris, it's an attack not just on the people of france, but this is an attack on humanity and the universal values that we share. >> right now the french president is addressing his nation. he said he is declaring a state of emergency and closing the borders. that just in from france. also up to 60 dead, as we mentioned, in this violence across paris. those are the latest numbers we're tt
