identity of the shooter. but they fear the gunman was driven by hate. >> we are pretty sure this is a hate crime. because there is so much ignorance and people mistake us of either being taliban, or part of the al qaeda, because of our turban and beards. >> a lot of the people are trying to know here what happened, how it happened, and who was the person, and what was the cause of this. and people are anxious to know. >> reporter: one of the core principles of the sikh faith is openness, but now it could be a vulnerability. temple leaders say they'll have to rethink their security. >> we will struggle with it and hopefully find a solution, not to have people turned away. but at the same time, have the security needs met. >> reporter: members of the sikh temple plan to hold a candlelight vigil tuesday evening at 7:30, when they'll

including temperatures, highs, lows. >> here's what i know about today. 98 degrees, about eight degrees warmer than it needed to be. late this morning, into early afternoon, the blazing hot sunshine was out there. and we soared into the upper 90s again today. if it weren't for the clouds building about 2:00, 3:00 in the afternoon, we had 100 dead in its sights. thankfully the clouds moved in. more importantly, rain showers brought the us needed rain drops across the area. if only it could have been more of a soaking rain. more rain on the way. august, very nice night 80 degrees still here at midnight. temperatures actually gone up a little bit since the rain ended. dew point temperatures, in the mid-70s. so 81% relative humidity now. 80 in annapolis. 84 in st. mary's county. anywhere near the chesapeake
bay, bay water temperatures in the 80s right now. out to the shanen do a valley, in the low to mid-70s. plenty of clouds in the morning tomorrow. scattered showers bubbling up along noontime and continue through much of the afternoon hour hours. tomorrow should stay in the 80s thanks to all the extra cloud cover. here's the rain for now. not much going on in the city, but there are showers now, northern montgomery county, southern frederick county, maryland, howard county, maryland, all those are eastbound showers at this point in time. not expecting any severe weather during the overnight hours. i can't rule out one or two rumbles of thunder. stanton, virginia, all getting in on the rain showers now. the strongest cells with thunder and lightning are headed out to the jersey coastline. and there's generally an end to the rain moving across far
southern parts of pennsylvania. overnight, the rain showers around. all part of that weather front which is going to sag just down to our south. by mid tomorrow afternoon, with the front hanging around, it will act as a focusing mechanism for focusing showers once again. the front inches further down to the south into tuesday. i think it stays just far enough to the south where we're dry for most of tuesday. but again, with it that close by, southern maryland, fredericksburg, may have to worry about rain drops. washington northbound, tuesday is looking probably like the nicest day of the week. if you're headed down to the beach, a little on the stormy and rainy side tomorrow. sunshine and warm weather into the rest of the week. for the overnight hours, showers and thundershowers gradually coming to an end late tonight. not much in the way of a severe weather risk. 6:14 the sun up in the morning. tomorrow, more clouds than

everybody is counting. >> can't they just stretch out his rotation? >> that's the question everyone's asking, but that's not what they're doing right now. if anyone is keeping track, stephen strasburg has pitched just over 121 innings. that leaves about seven starts before he could be shut down. now, no one knows exactly what that magic number is for the nationals, but it probably means no strasburg in the play-offs. after watching him with another solid outing today, that is a shame. taking on the marlins, strasburg getting it done on both ends this afternoon. top of the first, have a seat. carlos lee, no runs allowed, in six innings of work. in the bottom of the second, strasburg at the plate. how about a little hit. he ropes it into right field. jason worth and denny espinoza score. the nationals have a 2-0 lead. kind of gets you thinking maybe the nationals could use a clutch bat like that in the play-offs.
a couple batters later, who has been hotter than adam laroche lately. pretty much nobody. oh, jim said me. he just knocked in a score. nats up 4-0. they go on to win 4-1, and take the series. so davy, might we see shots down the stretch after all? >> i don't know, but somebody said when we shut him down, can we keep his bat? we'll use him as a pinch-hitter. highly unlikely. >> i don't think we're that far along. i think they're starting to pitch me more like a hitter. it's kind of cool, because they respect me a little bit more at the plate. but we've got a lot of guys capable of getting the job done. >> come on, let him pinch-hit. tampa, os, rays. that dog is styling. pretty quiet for the bats today. scoreless in the tenth. taylor teagarden gets ahold of
one. this one goes on a ride. but it stays in the park. mark reynolds, not exactly fleet of foot. but he'll score. or else take the 1-0 lead. that is your final. birds now move into sole possession of second place in the al east. well, finally we all got our football fix as the nfl preseason opened tonight with a hall of fame game in canton. but what would be the beginning of a season be these days without some sort of work stoppage? nfl officials are unable to come to terms with the league. so bring in the replacements. saints taking on the cardinals. shaky start for the replacement refs. he incorrectly announced the result of the coin flip. you've got to feel bad for the guy. in the first quarter, there's drew brees. he passed to thomas, running hard, who takes it down the ride sideline. broke some tackles. rumbles for about 20 yards. a couple of plays later, handoff to mark ingram. takes it down to the 3.
he would punch it in to give the saints a 7-0 lead. they go on to beat arizona 17-10. we've spent the past nine days bringing you the names of olympic athletes who have medaled in london. but tonight it was an athlete who finished dead last that captured the attention of the world. south african oscar pistorius base the first amputee to compete in the olympics. in the 400 meter, the story, he finished las. but a classy move by james, immediately after james walked over, and he asked to exchange name bibs. pistorius obliged. what a memorable moment it was. pistorius is not done yet. he'll run in the 4x400 relay thursday. the united states has 48 gold medals after richardson-ross won in track and field. what a story that was. great to see him out there.
