down his gun. the two men exchanged words and police say the man refused to drop his weapon. >> at that point, the suspect turned toward the officer, the officer engaged him, i believe, discharged. at that point in time, the suspect fled southbound on park avenue toward chew. >> the suspect was shot in the stomach and collapsed after running away. he died just a short time later at the hospital. right now we're working to get more information on a car crash that killed a 3-year-old child in the lehigh valley. nbc 10 was on the scene in hanover township, lehigh county. two cars collided on weaversville road yesterday afternoon. you can see just how severe the damage was. police say the impact of that crash threw the toddler from one of the cars. we don't yet know the condition of the drivers or what caused that accident. one week ago today, an amtrak train collided with a backhoe killing two workers.
now amtrak is retraining workers on basic safety rules. investigators are expected to issue a report on what they found in the next few days. the federal railroad administration told amtrak to go over track safety and communication protocols. experts believe it is an indication that the two workers didn't even realize the track was being reopened to train traffic. happening today, septa is making permanent schedule changes for regional rail riders. the airport line will no longer stop at the west trenton station. chestnut hill east is being run on saturday and sunday, but at new times. service will also be earlier on the lansdale doylestown line and the paoli thorn dale line. there are more changes on our website, nbc10.com. good news this morning, the

good sunday morning. i'm meteorologist karen thomas. bundle up if you're heading out early this morning or maybe just throw another blanket on the bed and stay in bed. why not? we're looking live now at the skyline and it is a crisp sunday morning feeling a bit more like wintertime than april. we have a freeze warning in effect until 10:00 a.m. this morning. all the areas highlighted there in the purple undergoing a freeze warning. so if you did any spring planting, hopefully cover it up for the overnight hours, simply because we're at the freezing mark in philadelphia right now. 32 degrees. colder to the north and to the west. and we're just under the freezing mark in millville and atlantic city. temperatures will slowly but surely be bumping. in the meantime, it is kind of
funny, here is your windchill outside right now. 23 is what it feels like in allentown. how about teens in reading and lancaster, 28 in pottstown. and it feels like 21 degrees out there in wilmington. so that's what i'm saying, you want to bundle up. we'll see some sunshine today. there is the good news. and that will give a chance for whatever snow is on the grassy areas to sort of go away, while breezy conditions, but not bad. we'll warm up to about 49 degrees in philadelphia. 52 for a high in the outer lying burbs. i'll be back with your seven-day in a bit. george? >> thank you, karen. both of villanova's championship winning coaches came together for a great cause last night. jay wright and raleigh masamino part of the coaches versus cancer gala in center city. masamino was honored at the event. he was the coach in the 1985

morning. temperatures in the 20s north and west of philadelphia. right now we are at 29 in glassboro. 31 in millville, new jersey. 31 degrees in atlantic city. i know it is feeling like the middle of wintertime. not spring. but we are in the midst of spring. northwesterly wind this morning. it isn't too bad out there. but it is factoring in to our temperature, i have cold temperatures and giving us a windchill out there. this is really what it feels like if you are stepping outside this morning. feels more like 21 degrees in wilmington. feels more like 24 degrees in dover, delaware. and 21 in atlantic city. hard to believe. here is that freeze warning, all the areas in purple until 10:00 a.m. this morning. not too much in the way of spring planting or if you did, at least you covered up that vegetation. it is in jeopardy as we are about 15 degrees below where we should be waking up this morning for overnight low temperatures. 5 inches of snow yesterday recorded in malvern
unofficially. 2.7 in estelle manor. i thought the numbers were interesting. not too much at philly international. close to 5 inches in wayne. boy, that was just a heavy snow. see the size of some of the snowflakes. high pressure moving in today. so we are looking for clear skies and really not too much to worry about for sure in the way of snow or rain. cold start for this morning. cold start for afternoon. sunshine and clouds moving in later on today. this evening, winds shifting. we could have some breezy conditions. for our monday, right now, the models showing that there is going to be rain activity, but it should stay mainly to our north and to our west. so sunshine to start. clouds rolling in. maybe a passing spotty shower for monday. so philly's home opener in the afternoon should be okay. it isn't until tuesday that we are looking for some shower activity as that system just really rolls through our area, really gets started. so looking like the umbrellas
necessary for monday, but really for tuesday is looking like the best shot of some rain. sun and clouds today. breezy conditions, 49 to 52 for high temperatures. we'll take you out with the seven-day forecast. and we will be slowly but surely rebounding to feel a bit more like spring. and that's good news because look at all the baseball we have to play. george? >> karen just mentioned baseball and a philadelphia police officer what was ambushed on the job several months ago will actually throw out first pitch at the philly's home opener tomorrow. jessy hartnett was shot three times in the arm during an am bush attack in january. he had several surgeries since then, but is still recovering. right now on this cold morning, a live look at citizens bank park where tomorrow hartnett will take the mound ahead of the philly's home opener against the san diego padres. if you can't make it down to south philly for the big game, nbc 10 has you covered.
good morning to you. i'm danny pommells. after watching the bruins lose to the senators, the flyers took the ice knowing a win over the penguins would get them to the playoffs. ed snider who is resting in california with health issues, the wildcats brought the mojo. late first party, down 1-0 until th this. flyers hold the lead and that is an empty netter, 3-1 and the
second wild card. marshall harris has more. >> reporter: with a new head coach in dave hakstol, the flyers won five of the first 18 games. despite that close start, here they are back in the playoffs. >> we worked so hard to get to this point. i thought we deserved that. that's only one stop. but it is a huge stop for us. >> we have been through a lot since the whole season, you know. and we really believe in what we were doing and how we were going to do it. and it is a relief to know we're going to play in the playoffs. >> we have been pushing hard and put a lot into it. this is, you know, this is one of the rewards for the guys. so step one accomplished. that's it. step one. >> when the flyers start the playoffs next week, it will be against washington. the team with the best record in the league. the captain claude giroux told me facing adversity down the stretch has them ready for that
challenge. for nbc 10, marshall harris, comcast sports net. >> about that challenge, stopping alex ovechkin, that's not easy. he had ha hat trick over the blues. he's tops in the nhl. to baseball now, vince ha valasquez had a strong start, nine in six innings. could the offense help him out? not much on a cold night in the big apple. opposite wade jack, his second of the season, that's the only run of the game. phillies get the first win 1-0. a rough day at the masters yesterday, five players had rounds under par. it was a windy day on the
course. 16th hole, smiley kauffman in the first masters. yes, his name is smiley and he's wearing funky green pants but just off the green, gets the birdie. only player to break 70 in the third round. 69 for him. jordan spieth, three-shot lead, but the three-putt on that hole, 73 for the day. he's three under, one shot ahead. that's your look at sports. boxer manny pacquiao is retiring or that's what he said moments after winning his latest fight. pacquiao won a 12-round unanimous decision over timothy bradley in las vegas last night. pacquiao's first fight since he lost to floyd mayweather in the world weiglterweight belt last may. he said, as of now, i'm retired. i'm going to go home with my family and serve the people. it is april, but it is cold
enough for a freeze warning. nbc 10's deanna durante is live at the art museum this morning. deanna? >> reporter: it is cold outside, george. but for many runners coming out here today, hopefully this is the perfect weather for them as 10,000 runners are going to be here in center city for a half marathon. i think running or bundling up are the only two ways you'll stay warm out there this morning as we're looking live at cape may, new jersey, now. beautiful sunrise has just begun. what a great picture that is. but a cold picture for sure. temperatures in the upper 20s down there along the shoreline right now. we are about 12 to 15 degrees below where we should be for this time of year. interesting stuff. i'll be back to let you know when we can warm up and feel more like springtime. and a look at the seven-day after the break. ♪
