can you believe today is the last sunday of september. >> is it? >> it is. we're all ready to enter pumpkin picking. >> let's check in with tom. what do you say, tom? >> apple hunting. many areas are laden with apples. you may want to plan an skpurks. right now we're getting some rain. a little bit of light rain showing up. you can see across virginia and mainly west of 95 this rain is advancing to the north and the panhandle of west virginia. closer to washington, a few sprinkles around the beltway over to woodrow wilson bridge and west of there into fairfax, the beltway up to tysons. it's getting a little well as well as burke and shann tilly and west of 66. south of there through manassas and woodbridge and quantico getting a few sprinkles as well as south of cambridge on the eastern shore. cool start. we're in the mid-50s in
shenandoah valley. upper 50s, near 60, right in washington, low 60s. low 60s aunld the bay. it's in the low 50s out of the mountains right now. hour-by-hour forecast. there's the capital under a cloudy sky. temperatures in the mid-60s. we may get sunshine breaking out in the afternoon, upper 60s nchl the afternoon the sun peeking out. landmark musical festival west potomac part later today, partly sunny, mild. then overnight this evening might get a few breaks in the clouds with a lunar eclipse but overall a lot of clouds around the lunar eclipse. watch out. a lot of clouds after midnight and then by monday morning we may get a little sunshine breaking out. then during the afternoon, a passing shower is possible. highs, upper 70s. it looks like a wet pattern here beginning. each day, tuesday all the way
into the weekend we've got a chance of a passing shower and maybe temperatures a bit cooler too. in fact, only near 70 each day on wednesday, thursday, friday, and into the weekend. that's the way it looks that thank you, tom. up next we have "reporter's notebook" for you. good morning. welcome to "reporter's notebook." i'm pat lawson muse. will our city ever be the same again? pope francis spent three whirlwind historic days here in the nation's capital celebrating the canonization at the basilica mass and became the first pope to join the joint meeting of congress. how did he do? >> i like your first question, will the city ever be the same. i'm sitting here thinking, yeah, the day after the pope leaves
boehner decides to leave congress and here we go right back. but to answer the last part of your question, i think all in all the city did pretty good. i think thanks to the news programs, you know, like tv 4, you got the message out. people knew. you know, stay home, work from home, adjust, and, you know, traveling around the city as i did, it was pretty easy because a lot of people either did what you guys asked them to do. >> metro had a scare the day before the pope arrive. there was a smoke incident at the rfk, the metro station there. and the day he arrived there was a power failure on the green line throwing a wrench in the afternoon commute for so many, but things seemed to go pretty smoothly after that. >> they did, but you had to sort of feel for metro in a way that they're probably thinking what can we do to get things right. you know, fortunately for them,
the pope's visit was so big it really sort of overshadowed that. i think the mayor has to be happy with the way things were handled. i think police chief cathy lanier has to be happy. now, they had to have federal help. you could onto get so close and things were cordoned off. some folks didn't know in which direction the pope would go, that's how secretive it would go. up close it looked smooth. i think the only complaints would be that you couldn't get close to the pope even if you wanted to get close. >> i'm sorry. back to the metro thing. again, i don't feel sorry for metro, per se, the institute. i do feel sorry for metro riders because these are the people who had delays to work. i mean they've got to get control of that situation and maybe the best we could say is they dodged a bullet. >> things went so well, could it backfire in the future when there are big events planned
here. the last time they said the roads were going to be jammed and they weren't. so this time i won't stay home. >> no, n i think you guys did a masterful job and i would say as you were talking, what helped the situation, again, was this social media. people -- now we have the iphones. now you can check. it was like i was -- you know, thanks to you, i've got my tv 4 app going. >> the nbc washington app. download that. >> and i was -- it was alerts coming in all the time. so i knew where the pope was. i knew where the traffic was almost while it was happening. >> but i know where you were going with that. >> it worked really well this time. >> also in the context, this was such a big event. it was really a global event. it wasn't just a city convenient.
i think if you have another dignitary who comes in who doesn't have the global appeal, right, of the pope and exposure and folks don't really pay that much attention as they did with the pope to stay off the road, stay home, opm sending out alerts, that i think it could sort of go back to the situation where folks aren't really seeing that these roads are closed and people are trying to come into the city. so i do think it depends sometimes on what tigny tair is coming in in terms of how much folks are paying attention. >> well, we certainly didn't get it with the chinese prime minister, did we. i don't know if we've gotten those alerts quite yet. >> highlighting the homeless. the pope put a high light on homeless. some were representing just a fraction of the more than 11,000 people living in shelters in this city. he pointed out that jesus was homeless at birth and there's no social or moral justification for the lack of housing.
how do you think the mayor and city leaders receive that? >> that was a powerful powerful statement, and for the mayor, she had to be happy to hear that. we've talked about that many times. has been the centerpiece of her run for mayor and her administration. now the question is will she use that posted pope bump alert to get that out for a push to homelessness? will she use it? i would recommend she use it. the pope's visit was very popular. she can sort of lean back on that and say, listen, the pope spoke on this and we have to follow his dictates. we have to do something about homelessne homelessness. >> i heard that same sermon 20 years ago by the reverend jesse jackson. i slemt opt outside in the park.
jesus was homeless. we've heard this over and over. i hope you're right. i really hope you're right. something was strange and that just a few blocks away from where the pope had lunch with a handful or small fraction of homeless people, people were literally walking over homeless people. and the reality is we're going to continue to have this problem because people can't afford housing. they can't even afford to live in the city. some of them -- i read a story where in cities like san francisco and other cities, people who work for the city, bus drivers are sleeping in their buses. >> shouldn't you agree this is the mayor's opportunity to sort of use the appearance of the pope to her advantage politically because we know as much as the pope was speaking from a spiritual point of view,
he's also a very political figure. we saw it when he came into the house to give a speech. they told congressional leaders, no one shake hands. the only hands he shook was secretary of state john kerry. the only one he knew in terms of religious position. >> i do agree. the question is what actions will now be taken. that's really the question. what actions will be taken to deal. and this homeless issue involves the mentally ill. it involves family. it involves a lot of things. >> all righty. we've got to take a break. we'll be right back. stay with us. ♪ ♪ hush my darling... ♪ don't fear my darling... ♪ the lion sleeps tonight. [snoring.] ♪ hush my darling...
machine. there was only one. the police believe it may have resulted in fewer arrests for dui. gentlemen, i thought we had gone here a couple of years ago when there was a broken breath test machine. how did we wind up here again, very monte. >> you say this is new news. it's really old news. they had issues where the machines were testing the breathalyzers and statistics came out where they were 40% off on these tests and they led to these lawsuits. here we are 4 1/2 years later, same issue, same problem. i think what's so important about this is any jurisdiction in the nation, they're dealing with drunk driving. this is oftentimes one of the main points of police departments. and to have a system where you have machines that are broken and have been broken and the person who's supposed to run this system has left and you
haven't filled the position, you know my question would be if this is so important, why hasn't either the administration or the police department put more of an onus, more of an importance on this issue. that would be my question. and i think that's a major problem. >> my position -- and when i heard this story, i must tell you. how much does a breathalyzer cost. it is absolutely embarrassing to be in washington, d.c., the nation's capital, and you've got one working breathalyzer. that is quite embarrassing. and it just does not make sense. go buy them, get good ones, get people trained, because other than that, you are putting all our living at risk because we're going to be on the streets with people who are drinking and driving. this is ridiculous. it's absolutely absurd to have one working machine in washington, d.c. >> vermonte, the city paid more than $300,000 to people who sued before alluding to the case you
were speaking of. the police chief is warning the problem could jeopardize new cases pending right now. >> i don't see how they could. there's clearly a precedent for this. if i was a person that was pulled over and if i can't trust that the test was run correctly or i contest whether i had been drinking, you can fall back on what we know now and even what was done previously. that's why i was saying for the city this is so bad that it's 4 1/2 years later and we're readdressing this. i would say, another point, pat, if we don't do the breathalyzer, poce had to then douren tests and that took longer. it costs $75 a test where the breathalyzer is $10. now you're talking about that. mistreated. a transgender said she was called by "it" and a guard
watched her shower has won a legal victory that forces the prison system to get training on treating transgender inmates better. you've had past cases where you had inmates who ha have suffered health issues and won cases. there's a need for better training in the jail system when it comes to treating people who are different. >> i think the big issue here was out in maryland. they weren't following federal regulations, again, that were already on the books. you know, the prison rape elimination act is there. and this prison wasn't following any of them. so the issue becomes it's a new society, right? and so how are these prisons then going to react to what is new in new york on rikers island. they set up a unit where
transgender prisoners were put. but even then there's an phish they're segregated for so long, is that a problem. so i this i this is an issue where the prison system is going to have to struggle with this. we keep talking about training. are they going to put money behind this to train. and any time you have a situation like this where the prison doesn't follow regulations, that's a big issue. >> don't they have to? >> yeah. then i el make it simple. bring your checkbook to court because you're going to continue to get these lawsuits. this is not new. this is 2015. and so everything you said is 100% right, and until they start training people and get serious about it. lawyers are going to sue. bring your checkbook to court because you're going to pay. residents in fairfax county can now text 911 in case of an emergency. they announced the capability of the technology for people who can't call or speak.
sounds like a great idea, great step forward. >> i think so particularly for people who do have those limitations, no ifs, ands, buts. at one point we talked about what may be the drawback. i don't know about you. so often i get a text and i have to find someone to interpret it. their spelling, their shorthand. that may be one of the drawbacks that it could get overused. >> well, obviously the upside is if you're in a situation where you can't talk, you klkts be heard, and you need to let police know there's an emergency, that 911 is there. i think what's also important is this is something the scc has put in place and they've asked the phone companies to make it available. now it's up to the jurisdictions whether they implement that. >> a lot of young people, that's it. that's how they communicate.
they text. they're good at it. it's not bad. it's another way. look, you can do both. >> joe and vermonte, thank you so much. and thank you. that's "reporter's notebook." stay with us. "news4 today" continues right now. . . we are following breaking news this morning in the district. one man is dead after a triple shooting in southeast. it happened on elvans road just before midnight. >> one has life-threatening injuries. the over is expected to be oklahoma. d.c. police will now offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. more than a million people are expected to celebrate mass with pope francis on this final day of his u.s. visit. after an electric night filled with music, the stage in
philadelphia is now being trance forled into an altar. >> that's right. jay gray live in philadelphia this morning. jay, how is the brotherly love. >> reporter: it's overflowing here and has been this weekend. look, it's been an inner jet ek and emotional at times six days here. as you mentioned, hundreds of thousands turning out to greet pope francis at each stop along his american tour. nothing different as he closed out the families festival here, the world meeting of family. he went off skrimt as he talked about families, the love and importance of family and how families have the take care of not only their children but the grandparents. it was very interesting. for some a very moving night last night. spend some time with clergy members and seminarians. he'll also visit with local prisoners who helped to hand craft a chair that will be used today during his mass.
over a million expected to be a part of this mass. one chance to say a final good-bye to pope francis. he leaves after this mass here this afternoon. that's the latest live right now as preparations continue in philadelphia. i'm jay gray. back to you. >> jay gray live. thanks so much. you've got see the touching moments thousands of people are sharing online. as pope francis left the philadelphia airport yesterday, he stopped when he saw a boy in a wheelchair. 10-year-old michael keating has cerebral palsy. when the pope saw him, he got out of the fiat, he placed his hands on his head and kissed his forehead. the family cried. our eun yang is in philadelphia for the meeting of the families. that's coming up in our 9:00 hour of "news4 today."
6:33 right now. we want to check in with tom kierein with more on this west forecast. >> yeah. yesterday morning i said we might get a few sprinkles sunday morning. here it is, sunday morning windchill e are getting a few sprinkles. the areas moving green coming out of virginia heading into west virginia and maryland. most of it is west of i-95. scattered. light sprinkles. the northeast and washington getting a few sprinkles and just outside into prince george's county getting a few sprinkles into largo and marlboro. and farther to the west getting a few and prince william, these again advancing to the north and the metro area. cool morning. you're in the 50s right in washington. low 60s. low 60s right around the bay. it's like a wet pattern setting
up here for much of the week ahead. look at our rain chances. that's ahead in a few minutes. >> thank you, tom. this morning more than a dozen people are recovering after a stage collapsed in arizona. police say the crowd may have pushed the stage causing it to collapse. nine people were taken to the hospital. it happened near phoenix yesterday. well, we have new information this morning about a deadly hit-and-run in clarksburg. police arrested this man, ryan salandy. they say he admitted to intentionally running over william mcdaniel. this happened on sweet spire kriesh near daniel's home. they say it bordered on rage. he drove to a germantown home where the family called police. investigators believe it all started with an argument about work. >> he may have had music or produced some music and mr. mcdano may have been formatting
it for him. investigators believe there may have been some dispute over that exchange or a transaction. >> now, salandy is being held without bond. he'll be in court tomorrow for a bond review. >> a community is now remembering a d.c. teen who was killed by a baltimore county police officer. darcy spencer talked with loved ones who called the shooting excessive force. we want to warn you, the video of the shooting is graphic. >> dozens turned out for a candlelight vigil held in memory for a 19-year-old man who lived in this garfield neighborhood. that young man keith mcleod was shot and killed by baltimore police officer. the teen's sister spoke. >> he was loved by many. he had our ups and downs but he when he needed somebody, wi us there. >> reporter: this graphic video shows the confrontation between
the officer and mcleod. the police chief says mcleod had his hand in the small of his back, whips his right hand around and brings his left hand up as if to support the right. >> that officer had one second to make a determination as to what to do to save his own life. >> reporter: but that decision is being criticized by mcleod's family and friends who call it excessive form. mcleod was unarmed . he was shot three times. >> you could have shot him once and detained him. he wasn't 150e6even 100 pounds. investigators say the front
ed engine of the duck boat was she she sheared off. four college students including those from austria, china, and japan were killed. >> i want to remind you of closures. 2015 turkish festival kicks off sunday morning. much of the day here, pennsylvania ave you. between 14th and 12th. also as far as metro goes, weekend track work here, green line running regular service here this weekend. orange and blue running every 24 minute this weekend. red line will run every 10 to 20 minutes and they'll have additional trains between fair began north and ♪

welcome back. it's 6:42. the pope came to washington and promptly the speaker of the house said he's leaving. >> we have chuck todd with us, the moderator of "meet the press." people were taken aback by this. >> that's right. it was pretty clear his job was in jeopardy, that there were folks gunning for him. how -- and it wasn't clear how he was going to be able to navigate this funding of the government, demand from conservatives that they do whatever it takes to defund planned parenthood at the same time, even if it means shut down the government. he couldn't figure a way out. what's interesting, he did find
a way out. he threw himself on the grenade. by doing this, it forced everybody to punt everything for three months. there's not going to be a shutdown for three months. it was like, all right, fine, you won't have me to kick around. >> who's going to be the next person? >> the most likely person, ken mccarthy. the problem is about 30 to 40 house republicans who have been upset with the tactics that he had been leading. well, there's not enough of them to choose their own speaker. they're still going to end up. the establishment if you want to call them that still has it. and guess what, mccarthy is going to get that. >> why are we hearing so much about paul ryan? >> paul ryan is somebody who they they could -- he has credibility with both the base conservatives and the
establishment that could be the guy who has the bong. he has no interest. he doesn't want the political part of the job that's never interested him. >> what did you take away from the pope? this was an amazing three days. i know he ee in new york and philadelphia but we got him first. it was interesting. >> his speech to congress and he had gone through a litany of issues. he certainly had an agenda. what was remarkable to me is this congress has become so famous for being polarized that even a man who lives in another continent came over here and very lightly lectured them about getting along together. it was amazing how, again, very politely and in an optimistic tone talked about the need in a good democracy that everybody do the best they can to work
together and bring them -- even if they disagree. >> real quick rj. i know you have a big show. >> we do. hillary clinton, car ly fiorina the two women running for pretty president. the new polls, maybe it's time to call carly fiorina one of the front-runners. >> a reminder you can see "meet the press" every sunday on nbc 4 right after "news4 today." the number of students free-meal-eligible is growing. "news4" got ahold of records. >> montgomery county is meeting the growing demand and "news4's" scott mcfarland went inside a central kitchen to see how a school district is doing it. >> a school lunch aseamably line by the hundreds. these are the school lunch cooks
and the cleaners, but they're not in the school but in a facility. montgomery county school system has a new kitchen. these will be shipped to dozens of schools tomorrow and served on monday says the school's services director. >> that's very unique and very efficient. >> reporter: and they need to be more efficient than ever. there are thousands more than last year and 2013. it's an enormous burden for school that must kiesch pace. helen herrera says some classmates depend on those meals. >> a lot of kids i know don't have a lot of food at their houses so they like to come to school because that's the only way they can eat. >> reporter: we found an increasing number of school districts trying free breakfast for all students. a new program to increase
participation, whether those qualify it or not. anyone can come by and grab one of these. yogurt and a bagel. at the processing center in montgomery county, they're even making students dinner. >> we don't know what they have at home. we want to make sure we've met the nutritional needs of each student. >> more people, more money now needed regionwide for those meals. some groups are having watch parties for those who can't make it to an event in person. a group of nuns from reading, pennsylvania, yeah, they've been breaking out the, quote, pope corn, papal punch. a marathon binge watching can
put your netflix to shame. >> each time he begins, his humility at the end, a constant "please pray for me." we do, we do, we do, we do every day. >> lots of excitement. the sisters say they're already working on how to make the pope's legacy real in their daily lives after the pope leaves. we talk about it last week. the middle of the week we said was going to be heaven sent weather. >> my favorite picture of the week was the nuns out tailgating. the weather was picture-perfect, they broke out the sandwiches, and they were sitting on the back of the wagon. >> everywhere he went it was beautiful weather for the pope. even in mass in philadelphia. here we're getting sprinkles. looks like they'll stay away from philadelphia. as we look now at the radar, the area in green, there's a few scattered sprinkles.
west virginia. that's showing up there in this area in the north. northwest of winchester. a few sprinkles. closer to washington, getting a few of these scattered across prince williams, fairfax, and iincento prgeorge's county between washington and buoy county getting wet. this is going to be drifting away. as it does, we'll get a little sunshine. mid-50s. out of the shenandoah valley in the 40s. closer to washington, a little milder. low 60s in town and right around the bay. skycast 4 showing a lot of clouds around this morning and breaking clouds. by noontime sunny. during the afternoon, it looks quite nice. partly sunny and mild. then the clouds begin to close back in this evening for the lunar eclipse. that is going to begin by early
evening. a chance of maybe a sprinkle or shower mid morning. upper 60s by noon. low 70s during the afternoon. for the land mark festival in potomac park, it's looking great. it will be hovering near 70 under a partly sunny sky then. the moon may be looking like that by around 9:00, 9:30. it begins at 8:11. so gradually as it gets at peak, we'll have more clouds. we might get lucky and see a little bit of it. partly sunny. upper 70s. a chance of an afternoon shower. then each day, tuesday all the way into saturday, a chance of a passing shower. afternoon highs on tuesday, the upper 70s. then on sunday, right around 70 degrees. then higher only in the 60s. maybe a little sun in and out. still a chance of a passing
