5:05 am
comparisons between the new york bombing and the bombing here at the boston marathon. now there appears to be a direct connection involving the tsarnaev brothers. from the surveillance video to the shoot-out with police to the pressure cooker loaded with bbs and ball bearings, there are striking similarities between the new york terror takedown and the boston marathon bombings, but now a direct link. cnn reporting that a note found on the unexploded bomb in manhattan mentioned the boston marathon tsarnaev brothers. the pressure cooker bomb that failed to explode was the same sort of improvised device that killed three people and wounded more than 260 in the boston marathon attack. one of the big questions that remains unanswered: did ahmad khan rahami work alone? former boston police commissioner ed davis does not think so. >> they don't do this by looking at the internet. they have to have someone show them how to do it.

5:10 am
out. >> john: but if garoppolo can't go, the patriots are ready to roll with rookie jacoby brissett. >> i love working with them, and i know our koching staff will have him prepared for thursday night. who knows. jimmy may be out there. we'll see how it plays out. >> john: if all else fails, there's still julian edelman. >> he still talks about that touchdown pass he threw a couple years ago. he's kind of to go. >> john: espn is reporting the patriots don't plan on adding another quarterback this week, that means julian edelman would likely be the back-up for thursday night's game. live in foxborough, john cuoco, 7news "today in new england." >> sarah: now to the race for the white house. george h.w. bush says he's planning to vote for clinton in november according to a facebook post from the daughter of the

5:16 am
in some of the rivers and streams in the boston metro area. it was beneficial across portions of southern new hampshire and northern mass. still a couple lingering showers this morning. they are passing through block island, sneaking into buzzards bay and across the cape. so once in a rile across southeastern mass, especially south of route 44 here in southern plymouth and southern bristol county, i do expect a passing shower or two. otherwise murky start, muggy start, temperatures mid to upper 60s. we have some areas of fog, as well, locally points north and east. the dew point into the mid to upper 60s. there's your humidity. doesn't feel like fall this morning. that's upon us here. officially, astronomically speaking, we start fall on thursday. winds light out of the south. you have to change the direction to the west to start to clear on out. you have a couple showers skirting the coastline of southern new england through southeastern mass right along the stalled-out boundary. that's stuck across the east coast. very slow to press off to the
5:17 am
lakes gets closer to us, you kind of edge down that cloud cover. so i think we'll see some sun this afternoon, especially north and west of boston. southeastern mass, maybe a bit of a struggle at times to get enough sun through the day. 80s as far as the eye can see back into the midwest in minneapolis and chicago, detroit. this is the weather that will be working on in over the next couple days. so we keep the warmth, but we change up the humidity. we have that lower humanity with brighter skies on wednesday and into thursday, and then as we get into thursdayig clouds to the north of us start to work on in. tropical storm carl out in the middle of the atlantic. a tropical storm now is expected to become a hurricane. it curls near bermuda if not just to the east of it, running parallel to the east coast and getting kicked off east-northeast. no threat to the united states. 76 to 83. coolest across southeastern mass. close to 80 in boston. even some 83s and 84s
5:18 am
through the merrimack valley. clearing overnight tonight. still some cloudiness down to buzzards bay, the cape and the islands. the theme here is dry it out, lower the humidity. we are warm through the end of the week. huge change-up for the weekend. look at that. 60s and breezy. >> christa: right now the acluo oklahoma is calling for criminal charges in a police-involved shooting in tulsa, oklahoma. >> christa: outrage is growing after the release of video after it shows the victim had his arms in the air. jennifer eagan has more. >> jennifer: that officer is off the job, and no protests are greg as people are getting a glimpse of the shocking video. the shooting friday evening seen from multiple angels. tulsa police officers responding to an unrelated call when they spot terence crutcher's stalled s.u.v. police say crutcher approaches officers when they arrive but refuses to follow their commands.

5:24 am
he needed just 89 pitches to do it. porcello is a cy young award candidate and the first-place red sox are now four games up on the orioles. mookie betts keeps on dominating in baltimore. top of the third, he launches his eighth home run of the season at camden yards. david ortiz also going deep last night. but this night was all about porcello, striking out seven in a complete-game effort, allowing just two run, lowering his e.r.a. to sox win it 5-2, even with jimmy garoppolo recovering from a sprained a.c. joint in his throwing shoulder, the patriots reportedly not planning to bring in a veteran back-up quarterback. so there is a chance garoppolo could back up rookie jacoby brissett on thursday night against the texans, and tom brady says jimmy g will do all he can to get back on the field. >> it's a tough thing to injure your throwing shoulder.
