11:02 am
right reasons at the right moment in this incident. >> reporter: back here live at the police department. sheriff bateman was arrested without incident charged with second degree assault which is a misdemeanor and has been released on his own personal recognizance, his weapons and credentials taken. he has denied any wrongdoing. still uncertain what his status is, of course. he's an elected official. not sure whether he's on paid or unpaid leave pending the outcome of this investigation. the police chief, of course, careful to say that his office is taking great steps to handle this investigation very carefully since, of course, sheriff bateman has a very long history in this county, elected in '06 but has been in law enforcement for a very long time in this county. that is the latest live. back to you. a man is in the hospital after an

11:09 am
washington. mark murray is a senior political editor for nbc news. he joins us now. i want to start where we just ended with tracy and president obama's comments about hillary clinton. should we read into that. >> one of the things you should read into that wasn't part of the clip is president obama repeatedly praising hillary clinton. he hasn't endorsed her, but he's coming very closely. also as far as the e-mail investigation, aaron, i think what we've seen so far is a very deliberate, very slow process from the fbi and the justice department to check everything. politics plays a role. that won't do anything to take away concerns critics have, but i think the administration wants to conserve that every part of due diligence has been put on this issue. >> ted cruz and donald trump won over the weekend. >> donald trump is a favorite. many polls have him at 50% where heig
11:10 am
delegates. i was on the ground in wisconsin where ted cruz had an overall advantage, and he cleaned up. it also showed donald trump's disorganization. they had misspellings for delegates, they had people with wrong numbers. you had a very organized ted cruz operation, a very disorganized donald trump one. >> i feel like we had that conversation after iowa, too, the difference between ted cruz's people and donald trump's people in iowa, and here we are again making the same point. does that suggest anything? >> well, it suggests that donald trump is still the frontrunner despite those disadvantages. i think the one thing for the likely republican nominee, it's going to be whoever is a more powerful force. that is, donald trump's ability to win in new york, maybe california in june, or ted cruz's ability to play the inside game better. >> we will see. mark murray, thank you. appreciate it. barbara? today some excitement at the verizon center. the capitols are painting the ice with the logo for the stanley cup playoffs which w

market last night. the man is in stable condition and the officer has been placed on administrative leave. maryland lawmakers have a lot to finish before the day is done. it's the final day before the state's legislative session and several key bills need votes. those bills include police reform, expanding drunk driving measures and a proposal to reduce sentences for non-violent drug dealers. right now you will want to pay attention to what lane you're driving in if your travels take you through northwest d.c. kristin wright tells us how police will be enforcing the new bus lane rules along georgia avenue. >> reporter: if you're caught driving in the bus lane, the fine is $200. it looks like a lot of people may not even be aware of this change just yet. they're still driving through the bus lane. here's what you need to know. the new bus lanes are on georgia avenue and barry place northwest
11:31 am
the lanes are clearly marked "bus only." this is supposed to help transit buses, tour buses, charter bu s buses, school buses and cabs. you cannot drive or park in the bus lane. the only time you can drive in it is if you're just about to make a turn. you can enter the bus lane about 40 feet before that turn. the lanes will not be enforced on sundays. later this spring, ddot is going to put down more paint to make it stand out more. kristin wright, news4. extending the 395 express lines for the d.c. line will likely shorten your drive to work. a meeting starts at 6:30 in arlington. the project will extend the 395

11:33 am
$2.00. west virginia is averaging $2.01 a gallon. let's go back to headquarters and a press conference. we expect some of the command staff here. >> the victim was walking home from dinner with her parents when she was struck by a stray bullet. as i understand, the victim right now is in fair and stable condition. the gun recovery unit has been working 24/7 as well as our detectives trying to get to the bottom of this case. we've been in the area knocking on doors and recanvassing for additional information. there's been police visibility in the area, and we want to thank the community so far that's come forward with tips and information on this case. if you have any information regarding the offense or the individuals that may be connected, we ask that you call us on 727-9099. a reward of up to $10,000 is being offered in the case. additionally, i'd like to add

[ inaudible question ] >> we have made a good deal of progress in this case. we feel pretty confident we'll be able to get to the bottom of it. we want to continue to urge people to come forward. we don't want to discourage them from coming forward. whenever you have a circumstance like this, you had a seven-year-old with her parents and with her brother walking in her own neighborhood. i don't think there is anything more tragic than that for that young girl to have to suffer this kind of an injury. i do want to say the actions taken by the family to save her life are remarkable and pretty
11:35 am
heroic, the things they did to save her life. [ inaudible question ] >> there is no indication that they were the targets whatsoever. it looks like a family that was caught up. an incident occurred within close proximity to the family where gunshots were fired, so you had some brazen violent offenders with probably illegal firearms involved in an altercation. and as a result we had a young girl that was struck. very, very serious injury. [ inaudible questi ] >> it appears we had some shots that were fired during an altercation in the neighborhood, and one of the stray bullets ended up striking this little girl. >> where was the altercation? >> we don't want to give that information out right now because it could impact the investigation. i can tell you this, the community has been awesome so far in coming forth with details on this case, and we expect y'
