6:14 am
charles, anne arundel. getting a little bit of light rain there. the sprinkles having just a scattered sprinkle is passing south of the metro area. timing hour by hour for a few more hours through 9:00, that should be the end of it by noontime. most of it is gone. may get a little bit of sunshine breaking out late afternoon. then this evening we'll stay cloudy through the evening hours. temperatures right now near the bay. most of our locations are around 50 degrees. this was taken by laura ellis. we're back to eastern standard time. so we're get one hour earlier sun rise and sunset. sunrise will be at 6:35. and then sun set and early 5:08.
6:15 am
it's hard. a chance of a light shower. mostly cloudy by 6:00 p.m. and back down to the low 60s. then by dawn on monday, should be in the 50s. passing showers during the day on monday. areas north may get a little sunshine. we'll be in the mid-60s by tomorrow afternoon. a mild pattern commences tuesday into wednesday looking gorgeous into the mid-70s both days. partly cloudy. a few clouds around on thursday. a slight chance of a sprinkle with highs around 70. friday, increasing clouds. again, the mid-70s. maybe a passing shower.
6:16 am
next weekend looking nice. saturday, high sunshine in the mid-60s. that's as good as it looks. >> hold those numbers. >> in november. up next, "reporter's notebook." >> we'll be back in 15 minutes. >> good morning. welcome to reporter's notebook. i'm pat lawson muse. metro has selected its top candidate for general manager. he is 55-year-old kneel cohen, a former top official in the airline industry who became a chief financial officer and executi executive company. cohen will reportedly become top manager at metro if the two sides can reach a contract agreement. bre man tay and pope.
6:17 am
>> it's very clear that the board of directors wants a money person in there, a person who knows how to deal with budget, turnaround which they mentioned and some of the information that question reveeded. he's worked outside of the box. he said we need someone who's worked in a large mass transit system. this really goes outside of that. and i'm fairly sure some of this is probably coming from the federal transit system saying, hey, listen, you need to find someone who can get your financial house in order and we move from there. that's how this reads to me. >> if he does become the new one he takes on the operational and financial challenges and a big
6:18 am
challenge of restoring the public's challenge. >> it's a huge challenge. it would be a huge challenge for anyone taking on this role. they're moving in the direction of someone they believe could be a turnaround specialist. that's the real key to this guy's appeals board that he does not come from this the transit world. they want someone who can turn this ship around and pull this out of the death spiral. >> many people are relieved, of course, bremante, that they finally after all of this time have settled on a choice.
6:19 am
>> here's the thing. if mr. cohen is the person who take over this position, it's sort of now leaves folks to look at it. now, everything should be in place for metro to move forward. there may not be any more excuse for metro if they cannot get their house in order. i will say this, he may become the general manager seeing that he worked in the airline industry for about 30 years, that might be subjective. >> i'm kind of curious about whether or not just the appointment alone and the fact that we're talking about an actual individual will create some instakt. we've seen riders abandon the system in droves because of all of the problems and uncertainty and i'm wondering if they will create a new sense of certainty that will bring riders back to the system. d.c. police are investigating the arrest t arrest of a man capture on video
6:20 am
this week that's raised a lot of questions and brought about a lot of questions. the arrest took place in the 6100 block. he was handcuffed and he was on the ground. in responding to criticism and questions about this, they said police work isn't pretty. this is what they face daily. what are your thoughts about that? >> if you see the video, any times, it is disturbing. if you see the gentleman, he looks like he's under some influence. if you look at the video, the force they use where they knee him in the face, punched him in the head, that's where it gets tricky. it's the type of force being used. >> he was on the ground. he wound up on the ground.
6:21 am
he was standing. he was confrontational but clearly appeared to be in some kind of altered state of consciousness. what about the head of the police union, michael, who said this wouldn't have been necessary had police been armed with tasers. >> that's the real debate. should your rank-and-file police officers have tasers. the union chief says they should. the police chief, not so sure. the real challenge, though, we have seen a problem with the tasers being deployed in the fairfax county jail. there was a woman who recently died. she had schizophrenia and so you have to think about these thing s when you decide to employ
6:22 am
this. you really don't know if the person is on any kind of medications that might react to that, if they have some sort of medical conditions that they might end up dead as a result of this. so this is something you need to carefully have thought out. >> i'm sheer kathy lanier knows that, can look across the river, knows what happened in fairfax county and i think that's why she's a little sort of backing off and the type of training. >> residents say, let's make a deal. they want the training facility but they want it with a cash. they want a displacement free zone. most practice in an arena. residents don't want to be pushed out so they are proposed that the zone featured a years
6:23 am
long moratorium on tax increases for small businesses and residents. sounds like a reasonable request. do the residents have the clout to get this into the deal? >> the ward 8 representative is a men tee of mayor bowser, so you would think they would have her ear. i don't know that they have much of a ground to stand on to have this displacement zone. think what they need is if there's going to be changes in the ward and things are torn down. whatever is built up is affordable for the residents who are there. i think that's what they have to push. this is about gentrification and folks and ward 8 is changing also and i think that's what you're hearing. listen, mayor, we know it's change, we want to be part of it. i'm not sure how much pull they have in getting changes they want. >> this would be kind of an
6:24 am
unprecedent move, so it's something worth discussing. there are two catches to that. if you're talking about property taxes, that influences people who own the buildings. we don't know what what kind of influence this would have. the other is this is temporary. this is a three-year measure. what happens at the end of the three years, does it happen then. >> and very quickly, aisle add this. one of the residents said, we saw what happened. we don't want ward 8 to turn into that. improvements have been made. really what we're saying is folks who have been there before have pushed down. >> yeah. got to take a break. we'll be right back. stay with us.
6:25 am
♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ geico for your boat. see how much you could save. tuesday's election day in northern virginia and there's a
6:26 am
lot at stake. every seat in the general assembly is up. big race for control in the senate and there's the big mayor's race. michael pope, you have been covering the mayor's race. but let's start with the senate and who may wind up controlling. >> it's at a razor's edge. there's no state wide. we've seen a market decline in participation. just because a few voters are participated doesn't mean the state are huge. they only need to flip one seat. they need to focus on two. one in northern virginia where the democrat is retiring and
6:27 am
they're fighting hard to keep that seat and another down in richmond is republican and they're vacating that and democrats are trying hard to take control of that. >> i think what's happening here to michael's point about the races, we know they won't lose control of the house. their numbers are too far out there. you would think for the democrats and the issues that are important to them, especially when you talk about traffic and what the government wants, at least if he gets the vote in the senate, that will make a big difference to him, at least slow some of the things the republicans are trying to do. in terming of the city of alexandria and bill being a write-in candidate, what i find interesting about this race, it was a three-way race in the primary. i believe that uhl could still
6:28 am
win. if that vote had been split three ways it would seem to me he could still win the election. >> what we're going to see is a reaction to the primaries. so that was the three-way race. uhl and dioply split the part of the democratic parties that is pro development. so as a result, silfverbergs with able to gain that part of the democratic party, plus virginia's an open state, so republicans could participate. she may have been elected with help from republicans. it's important to remember when considering the chances to remember that uhl's name will not be on the ballot. silfverberg's name will be the only name on the ballot. there's something to be said for that. in order for uhl to win, he's going to need a whole lot of people to write his name in and potentially spell it correctly. >> how will his ties with
6:29 am
development impact do, you think, this race? >> i spent some time last week looking at contributions from developers. he has a long history. and after he launched his campaign as a write-in candidate, the developers showed lots of support to uhl's campaign. they gave about $25,000 to his campaign against silfverberg. one in particular gave a $10,000 contribution. it seems pretty clear. >> they have been credited with thwarting a possible attack in their school. two teenage boys apparently were plotting a mass shooting in river bend high. they were arrested after their claes classmates saw threats. here's what kids did what they were taught to do, if you see
6:30 am
something, say something. >> this was a serious, serious issue and oftentimes we talk about after the fact thfrmt is just as important before the fact the way the school handled this. in virginia, the first state, the only state to have this school threat assessment that's in place where you have counselors, school, security coming together. they look at his phone. everything worked perfectly in terms of being proactive. this could be a model for other school districts. >> it's real interesting here saying these students felt dep pew tiezed to be sort of detectives in a way. this is something we really would not have seen unless we were in this environment that we're now in the post columbine, post 911. as you said, if you see something, say something environment that we're now all in. it's interesting they were
6:31 am
concerned about their own safety to the extent that they were willing to take action and thank goodness they didn't. >> thank you. >> thank you. that's "reporter's notebook." i'm pat lawson muse. stay with us for "news4" day, which continues. an update to breaking news we've been following this morning we learn one person is dead after a shooting at winston-salem state university. officials now naming a suspect. his name is jarrett moore. >> the school has been on lockdown. again, one person dead. police are searching for your the suspect. >> good morning, everybody, and welcome back to anonymous nuz 4 today. i'm angie goff.
6:32 am
>> good morning, everyone. i'm adam tuchls hope you had a happy halloween. >> how are we doing? >> starting off kind of wet. make sure your clock match ours time here at the bottom right of your screen as we went back an hour overnight last night. our sun reece and earlier sun rice will be a few minutes away. we'll see it.

6:33 am
in the shenandoah valley. then mid-50s around the metro area. milder weather moving in for the week ahead. i'll look at that in just a few minutes. >> tom, thank you. at least two people are dead and othering recovering from a three-car crash overnight. police say one car hit another head on at a curb and then flipped over. a third car was not able to stop in time. police say 37-year-old donna fitzgerald and another drive e your was killed. three were in the car with pack. three were not wearing seatbelts and three people in the third car were not badly hurt. drinking and speeding were believed to head to the crash. >> storms and tornados ripping through parts of texas right now. a tornado responsible for six deaths there. storms this weekend had battered
6:34 am
parts of central texas that were already florida flooded from hurricane patricia. flooding roads, homes, and businesses there. >> looking to the day ahead, family and friends will hold a vigil. police satan ya was shot and killed inside of her house by her husband antoine. after shooting his wife, police say antoine turned the gun on himself. the two had only been married just a few months. police are trying to find out why a man shot and killed people and then got in a confrontation with the police. he shot a person in the house, lit the basement on fire, shot another on a bike and gunned down a third person at a staurant.

6:36 am
the head of the program said he needed to find a new space but for months couldn't find one. >> i've been looking sense 1, july, and just was coming up against a big wall. >> so paul guenther made a public plea and metropolitan moving and storage stepped in and offered a huge warehouse with all the toys. >> imagining he collects 70,000 toy as year and that could have possibly not happened an got on the the families dependent on it. >> reporter: today is moorking day, loading the boxes on the moving truck and taking them to the warehouse just in time. let's take a look at what's in one box. a great lego set, something for a baby, and what would be christmas morn wougt a stuffed animally your stocking. >> reporter: these teens are

6:40 am
well, a few swings in the poll this week after a raucous debate, and we have a new
6:41 am
speaker of the house. >> joining us now to talk about it all moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. chuck, before the debate, you had sat down and talked to ted cruz and you said this is the guy to watch and now we have him posting in kubel digits. what's happening here. >> cruise has always had the a peel to appeal in the outsider lane and trump and carter have been sucking up the debate. carson called him the cruz missile. >> what do you make between the whole rift between rnc and nbc? >> it's partly us. we didn't have any involvement. we were happy to help if they wanted it and they were working

6:43 am
it, i'm listening, i know i'm not a good debater. i'm not going to compromise myself, butly do whatever it takes to win within a point. so we'll see. i think the donors though, i don't know how much patience they have. they're looking at marco rubio and looking at him as the most electable. who's better to put up against clinton who has the last name of bush or someone who's gnaw face and generational change. and i think that's what the big party financial elders are figuring out. >> we're going to talk about paul ryan the next time he stops around. >> we wanted to talk football, but we're getting wrap. >> i know. we should be talking about the miami miracle. >> i know. a reminder you can see "meet the press" right after "news4 today."
