motive. and investigators are looking to family and friends to help put the pieces to the. live at police headquarters, i'm lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. >> thanks for that. right now, five of the victims remain in the hospital. the officer ambushed sergeant sylvia young had a bulletproof vest to thank for saving her life. she was one of the first shot. sergeant young was on a special detail that night aimed at lower being crime in the neighborhood. stay with nbc 10 and the nbc 10 app for updates on the shooting rampage. we'll bring up more about the suspect's past and the latest on the victims' conditions. authorities say an explosion in new york city does not appear to be linked to a bomb blast in seaside park ocean county that happened just before a charity run yesterday. >> we need to shut down this run. shut down this run. >> the device went off inside this trash can along ocean avenue as thousands of people were waiting for a marine corps charity run to start. sources say additional the run was actually dlad
because of some registration issues. so no one was near the trash can at the time of the blast. >> the big thing was that delay helped tremendously in terms of what could have been injuries and others issues. >> the can was in tatters. and white smoke was pouring out. >> it really was loud. >> sources tell us additional undetonated devices were also discovered inside that trash can. new this morning philadelphia police are investigating a double shooting in tioga. officers say two men were sitting in a car at broad street and erie avenue around 4:30 this morning when someone trying to rob them opened fire. one victim is now in critical condition. the other is stable. also new in philadelphia's port richmond neighborhood, three people are in the hospital with gunshot wounds after a shooting outside of a night club on caster avenue. one of the victims is in critical condition. police tell us an argument in the club's parking lot escalated

now to this new
video from new york. it shows the moment an explosion rocked part of manhattan, and injured more than two dozen people. nbc's live in chelsea with the latest on the investigation. >> good morning. the explosion happened about a block away from here at a busy intersection, and you can see the streets are still closed at this moment. police are standing guard on this street, not letting anybody go through, even people who work in some of these businesses here. while the nypd has not said what caused this explosion they made one thing very clear. this was no accident. news four new york has obtained several security videos documenting this incident. in this video you can see the
initial bright flash of the explosion and then people running for their lives. this happened at the intersection of 23rd and 6th avenue in chelsea, which has a lot of bars and restaurants. clearly very crowded on a saturday night. after the blast the nypd combed the surrounding area for secondary devices just as a precaution. and they found a pressure cooker on another street, about four blocks away in what appears to be a cell phone and electrical wiers attached inside a plastic bag. the nypd bomb squad sent a robot onto the street to remove this device. they have brought it to an area in the bronx where they will detonate it later on today. at this point police have not said what caused this explosion but the key point is, they believe it was intentional. >> was an intentional act. we're going have a lot more to say in the coming hours as we have more detailed analysis. whatever the cause, whatever the intentions here, new yorkers will not be intimidated. we are not going to let anyone change who we are, or how we go
about our lives. >> and this was no small explosion. 29 people in total were injured. they were sent to area hospitals, treated for bruises and cuts. we're told all 29 of them have been released from their respective hospitals. that is the latest, nbc 10 news. back to you. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. and we're starting with that look at your radar and satellite because we've got a little action on the map here. you see there's a line of some showers, possibly some heavier rain. the yellow that you see now just moving in to reading and that's going to move into allentown here early on this morning. this is going to be very spotty activity through your morning hour. in fact this is isolated storms. otherwise that thicker cloud coverage hanging over parts of the pennsylvania suburbs, as well as the lehigh valley. now it's even extended through philadelphia to parts of new jersey, as well. the shore today is going to be that mix of clouds and some sun.
elsewhere more on the mostly cloudy side with some breaks in sun. we'll get to philadelphia, forecasting temperature of 83 by your lunch hour. should hit the mid 80s officially for a high. 85 but you see some areas may warm up a bit more than that. it's really going to be dependent on how much we see the sunshine break through. not likely to see rain, though, until we move into the overnight hours. in the suburbs, as well as the lehigh valley that potential is there, with low 80s in the afternoon. you see the icons indicating the storms picking up late in the day for the lehigh valley. delaware, new jersey, mid 80s, as well by this afternoon. cloudiness, and as i mentioned, along the shore, up to 79 degrees by 4:00. not likely to see rain there, though, until we move into late tonight, into tomorrow morning. 12 minutes past niep clock right now on this sunday. honoring a fallen hero next we'll show you a burlington county community is keeping the

the family of the new jersey state trooper who died in the line of duty received a very special surprise this weekend. west hampton township's municipal drive located right next to the police department is now known as cullen way. it was officially renamed yesterday, in honor of trooper sean cullen. you may remember back in march, trooper cullen was outside of his cruiser while responding to
an accident on route 295 when he was hit and killed by a passing car. cullen's fiancee was pregnant at the time. she has since given birth to the couple's second son. now to our decision 2016 coverage. protecting the obama legacy. that was hillary clinton's message to the congressional black caucus gala in washington last night. the democratic nominee is hoping black voters turn out for her like they did for president obama. clinton told the crowd that a donald trump would be dangerous, especially for african-americans. >> it's not about golf course promotions, or birth certificates. we need ideas, not insults. real plans to help struggling americans in communities that have been left out and left behind. not prejudice and paranoia. >> president obama also addressed the gala, doubling down on his support for clinton
by making this statement. >> i will consider it a personal
insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. you want to give me a good send-off? go vote! >> the president also took a swipe at donald trump by suggesting that trump missed a civics lesson about slavery and jim crow. speaking of donald trump, the republican nominee campaigned in texas and colorado yesterday. in houston he spoke to a group backing families whose loved ones were killed by undocumented immigrants. trump claimed that hillary clinton stopped immigration laws while she was secretary of state. >> she failed to take forceful action, and ignored the federal law requiring her us is to suspend visas to countries that don't take back their citizens. she didn't want to get involved. >> trump also reminded the group
of his plan to build a border wall with mexico. he vowed to deport criminal immigrants and not allow them back in the country. philadelphia is gearing up for tomorrow night's liberty medal ceremony honoring civil rights icon georgia congressman john lewis. the 20th annual event will be held at the national constitution center. the medal honors lewis and all those who strived to restore liberty for people around the world. lewis risked death and endured injury to lead the bloody sunday march in selma, alabama in 1965. lewis worked with the reverend dr. martin luther king jr. he also participated in lunch counter sit-ins and freedom rides that led to the passage and federal anti-discrimination laws. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> this morning, a lot different than what we've been seeing the last few mornings. temperatures considerably warmer out there. here's a look at our neighborhoods right now in
philadelphia. 74 degrees in central city as well as dora at 73 degrees. and it just keeps going here, fox chase, 73. bustleton parkwood up to 75 degrees already outside. we're looking at highs today that will be a bit warmer than they were yesterday, as well. partially because we're starting so much warmer out there. and we are looking at on top of the warmer conditions, cloudy conditions, and you can see why. this wide view shows us that we've got a long stretch of stormy activity and that long stretch is ahead of a cold front that's sitting to our west right now. so that cold front is going to push everything our direction as it moves our way. meaning, that already we're seeing the clouds. but, soon to be we'll start seeing more showers pop up, and that potential is going to continue as we move overnight even into your monday. a little closer look into our area shows us that the clouds have really started to push over the border between pennsylvania and new jersey, noticing some of
the thicker cloud overhead. into new jersey the shore more scattered coverage. today that will be one of the areas less likely to see rain and mostly just those clouds. here's your hour by hour showing. 9:00 a.m., a few of the spotty storms that sit mostly to our west at this point. they break apart, maybe some breaks in clouds here so pockets of sunshine although this is going to be a mostly cloudy day for us. and spot chances of rain do pick up along the delaware bay. then we move from 1:00 through your afternoon. 5:00 p.m. now we see some showers, thunderstorms developing over allentown. this will continue as we move overknight. spotty storms 4:00 a.m. monday. i think the model is going a little stronger hoo here. there's a possibility of very heavy rain. we could see larger accumulation, maybe above half an inch here. that moves through 4:00 a.m. through 9:00 a.m., passing philadelphia, wilmington, trenton, before it moves along the shore and then those showers
hanging as we move into your late morning, early afternoon, before moving out entirely through your monday. by tuesday, things will dry. but monday a rainy forecast especially during that morning commute. so a heads up there, toss the umbrella in the car as you're heading to work on monday. philadelphia today, forecasting a high temperature of 85 in center city with the possibility of late-day showers although it's looking more likely for us to see that in the suburbs, and through the lehigh valley. you can see that with your icons through the lehigh valley. down to 82 for the forecast high temperature today and allentown at 81. new jersey partly cloudy to cloudy weather across the board, 85 degrees. atlantic city just tapping at 80 and wilmington, 84 degrees. rehoboth beach also at 84 degrees but along the beach points again less likely to see rain until we hit the overnight and into tomorrow. we'll talk more about your ten-day on tap coming up.
