5:03 am
that was blocking the ramp from the schuylkill westbound to the vine eastbound but that cleared. so now traffic is moving okay on the vine. we've got a big accident in new jersey though and you know when the roads are wet you expect these to happen. in in gloucester county three he 22 is blocked. it's blocked in monroe township this accident brought town a pole and wires. that's going to take a little longer to fix and this is near high street. stick to glassboro cross keys road as your alternate matt and tam. >> thank you karen. governor erupted in two locations in the city of philadelphia last night. >> both involved philadelphia police officers pulling the trigger and one of these situations was fatal. >> we have live team coverage. katherine scott is live at police headquarters. >> first let's start with annie mccormick in the overbrook section of the city with more on the deadly shooting. good morning, annie. >> reporter: good morning, tamala and matt. right now you can still see behind me that officers are still processing the scene.
5:04 am
detectives are still here. police say they opened fire when the driver of a suspicious vehicle ignored their command to stop and kept driving towards the officers. police say that the man shot was not armed with a gun but they felt in danger when that vehicle was coming towards them. now, this is video from earlier. we're told that this all unfolded around 1:00 a.m. it's that vehicle with the passenger door open that is the suspicious vehicle. police in the 19th district tried to stop. according to police plainclothes officers in an unmarked vehicle reported that van as suspicious and called for a marked cruiser to as sister them. they surrounded the vehicle with lights and sirens on and approached on foot. the driver did not listen to commands to stop and was driving towards the officers when one of the plainclothes officers from the unmarked vehicle fired four shots. the driver was hit in the chest and later died at the hospital. now back out here live like we said detectives and police are still out here on the scene processing this. this is still very early in the investigation. we're hoping to learn more

5:09 am
the only other spot seeing some of this rain is down along cape may and the south jersey coast although most of the heavier precipitation is off the coast and if we start this up you can see how most of that heavy stuff is probably just going to stay off the coast and miss atlantic city, sea isle city and cape may. as we take a look outside, we have cloudy skies out there over the ben franklin bridge. obviously it's cool and damp once again. and the temperatures do tell that you cool story. 51 currently in allentown. same story in philadelphia. 51 degrees there. and in wilmington. upper 40's in trenton and millville. so, everybody cool and everybody damp even in areas where it's not actively raining you might still see some drizzle and it still has that dank feel. the rest of the morning looks like we'll probably have a tendency to see most of that rain push offer to the north and then up until about 1 o'clock we may get into a little bit of a lull. once we get into the afternoon a few more sprinkles and showers begin to dig in. that takes us up to the rush

5:11 am
possible on friday and a high of 60. it does look like that low finally gets away from us on saturday. we transition to a mix of clouds and sun. it will get milder with a high of 68 but there's still the chance of a spotty shower especially later in the day. and then sunday clouds, some sun for mother's day, 68 degrees. we can can't rule out another spotty showers in the morning and maybe a spotty thunderstorm as well but it's not a washout. neither saturday nor sunday. and then on monday and tuesday we really start to build better weather back into play. >> thank goodness. >> tam says thank goodness. 72 on monday, 76 on tuesday. high pressure rolling in bringing us lots of sunshine and warmer temperatures. >> make it last, days, make it t last. >> more disturbing video showing school officers being attacked while break up a fight in northeast philadelphia. >> tragic new developments in the case of a missing native american girl out west. karen. >> the construction has cleared here in the tacony section. the ramp from princeton avenue to i-95 northbound has
