6:02 am
goo good. when it rains, you still need to drink and hydrate. >> you forget that sometimes. >> you do. somehow you think water is absorbing into your body. we've got to consume. >> reporter: runners are made of tough stuff, marines are made of tough stuff. if people are coming down to run or cheer somebody on, what do they need to keep in mind? >> really, get out the door now and start moving. when you have 30,000 people showing up for a race and probably another 20,000, 30,000 to race, metro is going to be busy. there's prayer services going on. get a little mental balance. it all helps.
6:03 am
it's so important. >> it's so impressive when we see the parachuters drop out of the sky. will we see that? >> we will. they have a bigger flag than f. the flyover. liberty bell sing new this year, goes back to my time working the olympics. i love homing pigeons, the doves. they're going get released at the howitzer, they make their way up the potomac river and back to the great falls. it's something to see when the howitzer goes off. nice touch. >> reporter: nice touch. it's so dramatic. you get goose bbumps. it's a truly patriotic marathon. what is it about the marine corps marathon that draws them from where?
6:04 am
59 countries this year? >> absolutely the marines but you have to take in the beautiful surroundings we have. it's the people's marathon. we talk about the part-time who come here. you're right. our nation's been at war for 13 years and there's a strong patriotism feeling about earning that eagle globe at the finish line. again, it's a mental mindset of what's transpiring here. as you sigh the marines and sailors on the court that have been months or years ago out in harm's way. it's almost a two-way street. the runners are out here doing a personal goal, a dream, and then you have them thank marines and marines thanking them. i'm going to go on air and say it's a lovefest throughout here. >> reporter: it is, it is.
6:05 am
>> we're going to be out here at 10:30 when the first ones cross the line. joining me in about a half an hour, governor mcauliffe will be up here. we've got two different locations. we've got the 10k at the different sight and the howitzer here. >> we can sense the excitement. thanks so much. we'll check back in. the marine corps marathon is nicknamed the people's marathon. the run is a little different than it has been in years past because it actually pass through crystal city. you can see those changes in the nbc washington app as well as

6:08 am
been heavily damaged. more than 200,000 have lost power. here at home a development out of prince williams county where we're trying to work out the name of the person found dead insi inside of a car. police are now calling it a death investigation and are not releasing any other details. people told "news4" their street was taped off for hours and they were forced to stay inside. coming up, new body camera footage showing the release of the hostages from isis. in less than two hours runners will take their mark and you can check out the

6:11 am
feinblatt: everytown for gun safety action fund sponsored this ad.
6:12 am
new body camera video appears to show this week's hostage rescue mission at an isis facility in iraq. nbc news got the video from a news agency. the joint u.s./kurdish mission freed 73 hostages. you could hear gunfire in the background and an arabic voice yelling directions for hostages. >> they're doing stretches, warming up, drinking their water. when we're talking about weather, tom, it looks like they might have to watch for a puddle
6:13 am
or two. >> just lingering light showers that came through. right now we're getting a few of these scattered across virginia, west virginia, and eastern kentucky, all of this sliding off to the north and east. the local high definition radar showing a few areas in green, charles and west of there. southern prince william. stafford, spotsylvania, west of there across northern virginia into culpeper, a few of these sprinkles there. later this morning, the hour-by-hour timing this morning. a few sprinkles coming through. and then by noontime most of it's ending. we get some sunshine breaking up later this afternoon and a little bit of a blustery wind, too, behind this rain. the wind may be picking up by later this afternoon. la right now we're in the 50s. the marine corps marathon for
6:14 am
this morning. those sprinkles will be ending by late morning and then that sunshine breaks out into the mid-60s for the game. tampa bay at fedex field. kickoff time, 1:0060s. a little rain breaks out. they get into the upper 60s by 3:00. then back out to the mid-60s by the end of the game. them overnight, partly cloudy. the mid-40s. back to work and school tomorrow. we'll have sunshine back and cooler. afternoon highs in the low 60s. cloudy and cool on tuesday. highs in tupper 50s. rain likely moving in. showers likely on wednesday with highs reaching the upper 60s. those showers ending. thursday, friday, saturday, the sunshine returns, it will be cooler after a milder day on thursday. that's the way it looks. >> all right.
6:15 am
thanks so much. 6:14. next up "reporter's notebook." >> then we're back weith more o this morning's news. >> good morning. i'm pat lawson muse. fresh pac is staffed by people from mayor bowser's campaign. her former treasurer wants to raise a million this year. it's smart, but critics say it's bad. does this fly in the face? >> it's not fresh. iflt's not new. it's not innovative. it goes back to tammany hall and those who ever studied civics or government. i agree with one city councilman. it's very bad politics.
6:16 am
there's no ifs, ands, butser it even though on paper the mayor says it won't target anybody. once it's established you can do with the pac unless restrictions are written in. >> there are new limits, but this is not illegal. it is unusual, though, to see a pac formed to support a mayor. >> well, and for them to say that, you know, we won't do anything here with this, we already know they have said we want to be behind the mayor to support the initiatives. the counter would be if they don't support the mayor's initiatives, what are you going to do with this. the important thing is in nonelection years. in nonelection years you can give any amount of money you like. it's reported that the mayor's pac has $300,000. i think what's interesting is
6:17 am
the council members who voted for the bill to squash it, none of them are running for re-election. the five who aren't aren't supporting this because they're thinking maybe they have a pac and they don't want to put limits on it. so you have to say where is it going to fall? is it going to be for the good of the community? let me say this quickly. remember, the supreme court has ruled citizens united, corporations are people too. >> you could actually -- you're absolutely right. it could go that route. the other thing people aren't saying is the mayor has the ability to suck up all of the money as opposed to a councilperson that might be running an award and certain council members who run at large. >> does it matter she's been open about it. even though decisions about how
6:18 am
the money is spent is being raised independently? >> i don't think it matters. i think what matters is the potential to control the city kouj. >> i think it does matter in this sense, joe, if it was really shadowy and we didn't know about it, it would be a much bigger issue. >> she didn't do that. >> that's right. the council knows about it and the committee chairman mcduffy who at the tieme could have changed the law and he didn't. bikers clash with a house of worship. they say bike lanes would run them out of the neighborhood. the church which is located east of the convention center. they say putting a bike route on sixth street would take away park space.
6:19 am
we've seen standoffs like this before in the district, haven't we? >> yeah and what we're talking about here is gentrification. if you look, it's not going to help. we've seen this in churches in d.c. that was a parking issue again and if you see this letter that was sent out from the church, it is pretty heavy. they're talking about racial issues, the fact that the cities want churches to move out so they can get tax-emt churches out. >> that's where i go back and forth from here to home and what they're talking about is angular parking on sunday as opposed to parallel because you can get far more cars in there. the reality is that the
6:20 am
millenniums who now are occupying a lot of the city, they've got to learn how to get along with people. this is ridiculous. the reality is it's a sunday issue. here you're saying they can't park to go worship because somebody might be taking away a bike lane as if that many people are out on a bike on sunday morning or any time? this is a problem in which you go into the neighborhood. you want to change the culture. you've got an attitude about it and quiet honestly i support the church 100%. >> the city is changing not just in that area but all over. >> that's part of it.
6:21 am
>> they're saying the times are changing. the church is saying we will sue and we will sue under the first amendment in terms of religious expression. that's how far they're going. >> what did we do in cities when there weren't bike lanes. we found a way. find a way. suspending an app. after a criticism used by residents, the georgetown business district has suspended use of the app. critics say it was bug used for racial profiling. the service says before they put it back up, they're going to want a review for those who use the app. will it satisfy jornl town and
6:22 am
the critics? >> it will if they suspend it. i don't know if they're keep it out forever. we're talking about the app but i think you have to taj with the department. i think what's problematic, i heard one person say, listen, even if it hurts just a few who have been profiled, it is not worth getting rid of the whole thing. they took it down and they're working on it. >> you can have all the sensitivity training you want. this is a very simple matter. if you've got a problem with shoplifting -- by the way, most of the shoplifting is by employees, let's be honest about
6:23 am
that. secondly, put security guards in place, cameras. i don't think it's going to work. they're using it not just for shoplifting and suspicious people who come into the show. they're using it now for neighborhoods and whether the complexion of a neighborhood changes and therefore may or may not be crime-ridden. >> got to take a break. stay with us.
6:24 am
♪ ♪ hold the ticketing. there is some confusion about how those tickets are being handed out. attorney general mark herring says the law as it stands doesn't allow those citations to be delivered in the mail. you're supposed to be served in person by a law enforcement official. but if you're caught on camera runs a red light the law does
6:25 am
allow you to get that ticket in the mail. so it sounds like there's some confusion to be cleared up. >> clearly it's the way the law is written. clearly the council or legislative body is going to have to go back and tweet the law because what it basically says is if you go past a school bus, which is so dangerous to do, the policeman has to catch you, pull you over, write the ticket. and so it's just a mat err of, i think, rewriting the law or creating a new one. >> the interesting thing is, the law the way it was set up was in the initial pill that you could make out the ticket but once it went through the general assembly, it was taken out. we have to do this. you know, my issue would be, again, you know, is this the best use of the police force? you know, you want to make it's fish end.
6:26 am
if you want people to have to pay tickets, you want them to pay quickly. if they know it one supposed to be in the bill, it sounds like it's going to have to go back into the general assembly. >> they have to find a way to get people to stop. >> that's the real issue. as everyone knows, we've had a lot of deaths and accidents. yes, it's inconvenient when you get behind a school bus, but it's very dangerous for the children. >> the shooting of an unarmed sprungfield man in 2013 has led to proposed changes in police practices in fairfax. a panel mount includes more changes. more transparency. more force and a resfru panel. a chigs spent six months
6:27 am
examining the way they've been using force training officers and the way it works with the public. >> the cynical side of me would say it's really not groundbreaking. we need more transparency, more training. i will give them credit for being deliberate. 6 months is a long time. i think the issue for fairfax county, they've had so many bumps in the role for a couple of times that was in depth. obviously the prove will be in the petr. you can always put together a piece of paper and a plan but let's see if they'll floichl. >> i commend them firm bridging together police officers, elects officials. civilians.
6:28 am
the one thing i found were comments and blowbacks from the civilian review board. i thought the chairman made a very good point. he doesn't understand. what's the problem. the military reviews it. should. there be some blowback from that? but i think they should be applauded for the way they put it toke. like you said, you're going to have to put everybody together. >> hot lanes, everyone is pushing for them. i're looking for ways to ease the dgridlock on the bridges. for years planners have been talking about the need for a second potomac river crossing.
6:29 am
so you have hov lanes and hot ways on the other side of the bridge, maybe a suggestion would be to have hot lanes and hov lanes on the maryland side. >> duh. i mean that makes sense. you have the traffic going out in the morning coming in the evening. it's a lot cheaper to decide to build a new bridge. once you decide to build a new bridge, how do you pay for it? >> if you look at larry hogan's portion his position was like let's put money in roads and bridges and you had to push to get money for the purple line. >> time will tell. we'll see. thank you, gentlemen. and thank you for joining us. that's "reporter's notebook."
6:30 am
i'm pat hawson muse. stay tuned with us. the news continues right now. ready set. we're live from the marine corps marathon. >> they're all running together in a salute to our troops. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "news4 today." i'm angie goff. >> and i'm adam tough. >> we have big news on tap. >> we do and wet pavement to content with early which isn't too bad a news because things are going to try out later, right, tom? >> absolutely. we've got to more rain. coming out of west virginia and

6:33 am
uphill. you start at the beautiful commonwealth of virginia, end in virginia, you can't do that anywhere else. i've run boston, chicago, nothing compares. >> you're going to be firing the pistol at 755. tell me. you remember your time. you were a student at catholic university. >> i was a senior. probably stayed out the night before. stayed up till 4 in the morning and came down. i have a son racing this morning. >> he's one of the volunteers. >> one of the volunteers. it's great advertising for both

d.c. and virginia. people have been coming in here for days. >> and coming from all over the world. 59 miles. you run every day. >>y. this is a beautiful day. you don't want it too hot. you don't want pouring rain. i remember in new york it was raining so hard your sneakers got heavy. it was like carrying 10-pound weights around. but this is pretty cool. >> you mentioned politics. were on the campaign hill with hillary. it's all about endurance. >> we had great day in alexandria. after 11 hows of testimony, she came out with us.
6:35 am
>> we had 3,800. you were there. she was fired up. we had a great dinner. you've got to stay to this. you know, listen. we don't have our first contest till february in iowa. so we've got a long way to go till you win the full prize. >> but she's in the race. >> she's running. >> it's a marathon aunt not a splint. >> but it's a mary thochblt 7:55. we'll be lacking four you. we'll be with you back at 7:00 liven. we're leave outside ar lengthton cemetery. back to you now. >> thanks so much. a lot to look forward to. you're going to br bringing it all to us.

6:37 am
the parade. >> i saw black coming and i didn't know what it was. the car hit me and i flew other some strollers. >> reporter: she walked away. her roommate tlied to shield her from the carnage around her. my teammate was like do not look, do not look. it was really scary. >> reporter: police identified the 25-year-old as adacia chambers. a man who pulled his children out of the way shared a picture of officers taking her away. >> they were speeding through the crowd of people. >> reporter: the tragic deaths of four and jooirs others.
6:38 am
that's good ball. to think someone could hurt someone like thissing is unfathomable. one said he hooft his rifle. not much happening. in a couple of hours it will be packed with thousands of marine corps maratho

6:41. if you're running this morning, hey, time to get up. we're counting down to the start of the marine corps marathon. this is a live look at the starting line along the memorial bridge. take a look at the marathon route. it begins in arlington, snakes its way through. it's a little bit different this year because it passes through crystal city.
6:42 am
you can see those changes of the route and the nbc washington app as well as the road closures you're going to run into. >> opening ceremonies in about 40 minutes or so. a different kind of marathon, though, this weekend on capitol hill as hillary clinton sat through 11 hours of testimony about benghazi, plus, ryan takes the reins. >> joining us to talk about all that, chuck todd. >> i sigh what you did. >> we're going to do "meet the press" at the marathon. we're at mile marker 4. >> seriously. >> yes. >> let's talk about hillary clinton. the cartoon shows her sitting sipping her coffee. >> there was a lot of deflection.
6:43 am
some of the key questions, she wouldn't take full responsibility. it wasn't very organized. i think the fairest way was to go after the policy to. me there wasn't enough time spen on that and the democrats decided to be her shield and why they'll were performing as good democrats, you can't feel good that they didn't decide to 'peer in the hearing at all. >> what are her hurdles now? >> i think it's her self. nobody wants to be running for president and slapped even with
6:44 am
a misdemeanor charge. that wouldn't look good if that happens and charges are prout. what's interesting about her is she had this terrific ten-day campaign. now she's the overwhelming front runner again. will she get complaisant. that's. >> thick she should have to fear. >> that's the story of the weekend. donald trump has basically lost it. he's not first place -- if you're leading in iowa, you're the front-runner because it all begins there so i'm one of those believes the person leading in iowa will sit down. >> and you sit down with ben carson. >> i will be.
6:45 am

6:46 am
across the key bridge all morning to head down to the starting line. we talked to them a little while ago. one, an experienced marathoner and a woman running for the first time today. here's what they had to say. >> i think the marine corps marathon is great. it's my third. i did new york last year. i'm originally from new york but this i feel is sort of my home base marathon. >> i am a cancer survivor and it's kind of taking control back. >> reporter: we wish them both good luck. we met a group from mexico, a group from australia. so important to them to come and run this marathon and i'm really
6:47 am
excited this year because my brother is going to be among the marathoners. he flew in from ann arbor, michigan, so he'll be here as well. >> all right. julie carey for us along mile marker 4. >> we'll be rooting for everyone as were as her brother. it's so spirited. you turn the corner and they given you that extra push that you need. it's really, really cool. >> i would neat a lot of push. >> he needs to be in a stroller. >> overall decent running weather. >> in the 50s and a little bit of a light sprinkle. >> there is the leave view. the scene this sunday morning is
6:48 am
cloudy. look at the "storm team 4" radar. the wide view showing the batch of rain across virginia getting close, pulling out of west virginia and kentucky. this batch is tracking right into washington right now. just a few sprinkles beginning here now. to the west into the shenandoah valley. very light rain. charles, calvert getting light rain now. so for the next couple of hours put on the sprinklend and the temperatures will stay in the 50s. right in washington and around the bay. it's right near 650 degrees. for the morning hours we will stay wet and then should begin to dry out. by 11:00 as many of the runners will begin to come back in and ending the race, it will be around 60 and cloudy.
6:49 am
and then for the other runners finishing a little bit later. in the mid-60s by early afternoon. then there's the sky over washington right now. live view from our tower camera just beginning to produce those sprinkles. the sun comes back out and we hit the upper 60s. the winds may be gusting to around 20 miles per hour. so likely not affecting the tampa bay and washington game at fedex field in the upper 650s. then by dawn on monday. down to the mid-40s. cloudy on tuesday. highs in the 50s. another chance of rain. likely showers during the day on wednesday. could pick up an-inch of rain. then cool again with sunshine friday, saturday, highs in the low 60s.
6:50 am
that's the way it looks. >> all right. thank you very much, tom. coming up a prince george's county officer -- >> good sunday morning, evan. the redskins getting ready to tack on the buccaneers. when tampa came to tampa and ran away with the win. in five out of sijs games this year the redskins left at the hat. the burg ard gold scored 36 points. they've been outgained. what happens. the players are certainly look for answers. >> you know, when you have a lead, you maybe get a little comfortable. i don't know. i think it's important for us to have it. i've been pleased with the way we've come out in the first quarter. >> you know, we've done the same
6:51 am
thing in the five or six games. we're looking at a different result right now. you're asking me different questions. the only thing we can do is each guy has to take the individual responsibility and turn it up a notch. >> the bucks' rookie quarterback jameis winston five games into his nfl career, seven touchdowns but also seven interception. well, the redskins know they may have the upper hand. >> he's the number one overall pick for a reason. the dude can move around in the corner. kickoff at 11:00. coming up, a prince george's county officer lost something pretty important. husband rifle. we're going to tell you what happens next.
