6:04 am
last week for carrying a concealed gun into the club. he did bond out of jail last week but he is back in custody now after these new charges. this does raise the question here, the fact that we've got neither one of these young men charged with murder, that raises the question who will be held accountable for the death of a 22-year-old and 33-year-old, police believe there could be a third suspect in the february 7 shooting on the loose. the shooting is said to have stemmed from a fight between two groups. we don't know which side these suspects were on. police were still questioning 21-year-old cruz nazario last night hoping to get more information out of him. we will be watching today as lopez makes his first appearance in court. as soon as we get new details, as soon as we can update you on his appearance or other details in the investigation we will do that here on air and on

6:32 am
see those winds increase and clouds will increase too. clouds are off the coast now. they are going to start rolling in. temperatures today headed back to the lower 70's pretty much where we were yesterday, even a degree or two warmer. like yesterday we have a really big temperature difference again, north and west to south and east. however, it is a little warmer in marion county. we're at 46 in ocala. yesterday we dropped to 39 degrees. 55 in sanford, 53 in daytona beach and orlando, and 65 now in melbourne. warmer at the coast because not only do we have a little cloud cover east of orlando, we have winds out of the northeast. you can kind of see here as winds come in today, that's going to send some of these clouds farther inland which means we start with plenty of sun but we will end up with more clouds today compared to the last two days when we've been mostly sunny. 72 will be our high in denilin.
6:33 am
sanford, 74 ma i tland in celebration. 70 degrees the high in daytona beach and 73 today melbourne. we'll talk more about the upcoming races at the speedway. the forecast for that and the rest of your weekend in a few minutes. right now let's get a traffic check. ted: a crash on central florida parkway near orange blossom trail. westbound on the right, sun starting to creep up over altamonte springs. more congestion getting out of altamonte and into orange county but not bad enough where it's changing the travel time. right now we're taking a look at our travel time for i-4 eastbound into downtown, john young into colonial, five minutes. michelle: this morning deputies may be back out at the site where human bones were found. jason: the discovery was made yesterday west of daytona beach off u.s. 92. its

6:35 am

6:36 am
custody now after these new charges. 21-year-old cruz nazario also faces more serious charges here: attempted murder, aggravated battery and aggravated assault. but neither one is charged with murder, and that does raise the question here who will be held accountable for the deaths of a 22-year-old man and 33-year-old man? police believe there could be a third suspect in the february 7 shooting still at large. the shooting is said to have stemmed from some type of fight between two groups at the club. but we don't know which side these suspects were on or the victims. 300 people were inside the club at the time. that is a packed house here when those shots rang out. and police were still questioning cruz nazario late last night hoping to get more information about this. we'll be watching today as raul lopez makes his first appearance in court on

6:38 am
credentials at a town hall on msnbc. the fight between clinton and sanders comes as a fox news poll shows bernie sanders leading hillary clinton for the democratic nomination 47% to 44%. michelle: our very potential adrian whitsett will be in south carolina for the weekend primary. you can look at his live report starting this afternoon and get updates inside the wesh 2 mobile app. jason: it's a jaw-dropping chopper crash. this was the scene in hawaii. we're going to slow it down for you. you see it go right into the water. it rolls over and ends up upside down there. this was on an approach to the shore near the u.s.s. arizona memorial at pearl harbor. five people were abored that hawaii tour at the time. a 16-year-old boy was critically injured but everyone survived thanks to good samaritans getting

6:45 am
winds fairly light at this point anywhere from about five to ten miles per hour. but the winds will be picking up as we get going today. those winds are also going to bring some clouds in. take a look at all the cloud cover that's out over the ocean. those clouds are going to keep streaming in on our northeast winds and that means we won't have all that full blue sky sunshine that we've had the last two days. instead we'll be partly chowedy instead of mostly sunny. but we are starting off with a lot of sun and then our temperatures this afternoon will top out in the lower 70's. we'll talk a little more about the weekend forecast when we get back to 80 degrees, when we've got rain in the forecast and of course a look ahead to the forecast at the speedway for the weekend as well. ted: good friday morning. we have a crash on i-4 eastbound at maitland boulevard. not blocking but a busy area so we're keeping an eye on it to make sure it will not delay your dry in

detectives claim evidence shows otherwise. >> i'm going to be as cooperative as possible. >> investigators show surveillance video showing the cab driven on john young parkway hours before it was found and other surveillance police say helped them build a time line up to the moment of finding the cab at lake sunset about a half mile away from strickland's home. strickland is being held without bond in this case. he filed a written plea of not guilty. the case likely won't be heard in court for several more months. the sherrif's office gun range is staying put. a judge dismissed a lawsuit demanding it be shut down. officers train every day at that range. some who live nearby say it night. since the range has been there for 35 years it is unlikely residents have grounds to
6:48 am
>> in no way is it a health hazard. it's a public nuisance and also it could be dangerous because we don't know whether the sherrifs department department is shooting or someone in the residence is getting shot. >> the plaintiff says he'll refile this lawsuit and try again. michelle: happening today, a cargo ship will leave the international space station. the spacecraft will undock around 7:25 this morning and burn up over the pacific ocean. the spacecraft delivered experiments over the years. jason: we're live at the speedway to preview the daytona 500 weekend. a live report between 7 and 9.
