some new insight right now into why we've seen flames and smoke spreading across montgomery county land dozens of times so far this year. reports reviewed by news4 shows the fire and ems department has responded to 60 brush fires in the county so far. a dozen of those were considered significant including one last month in germantown. among the causes listed, controlled burns that spread farther than expected, and one of them triggered by overhead power lines that fell on dry grass. it is one of the most controversial issues on the presidential campaign trail, the

4:12 pm
make an announcement about an arrest in that case. chief? >> good afternoon, everybody. as we talked about earlier today, we had a 7-year-old that was shot in this neighborhood, and today i want to announce we're very pleased to announce that 27-year-old michael wiggins from southwest washington, d.c., has been arrested and charged in this case. i can't underestimate the help that we got from the community in this case, all the calls, all the support that we got in closing this case. the hard work of detective kenneth weeks and her partner
4:13 pm
they worked diligently with the court system. the weapon was recovered, and we do now have an arrest in the case. >> so we want to let everybody know -- it's good news. that the 7-year-old involved, we got a chance -- i got a chance to talk to her and her family yesterday. we continue to pray for her speedy recovery. she is very anxious to get back to school, and we're anxious for that to happen as well. we certainly don't tolerate any level of violence in our city and are shocked that a child walking with her family could get caught in this cross fire. we're equally shocked that what appears to be an altercation among teenagers at a metro station ended in one of those young people being dead. so we look forward very soon to being able to share additional information about the stabbing that
4:14 pm
metro. >> we can as we speak, i have my public information officer who is watching. we're going it recease some images that we have in that case so we'll be sending that out to all the news organizations and we'll tweet it out so everybody has that. so we do have an image of a person of interest in that case. >> we can take a few questions. >> does the person you arrested live in this area? >> southwest d.c., yeah. >> down what the involvement was? what brought him over here? >> it appears there was an altercation that led to gunshots, and then, unfortunately, the 7-year-old was struck by one of those gunshots. >> more arrests to be made or is it still under investigation? >> we believe we have the one shooter that is responsible for the shooting. >> chief, you mentioned some community involvement. was that the basis of your warrant or do you have video or anything -- >> i have to say without the community's help in this particular case, we would not have been able to make a closure, so we really want to thank folks. we go out a lot of times and we ask the community to help us
4:15 pm
in this particular case, like i said, i can't underestimate the amount of people that called in with tips and information, and one of those tips led us to closing this case. all right? are you guys good? >> thank you, everybody. thank you. >> so, again, we just broke in with that live news conference there. that was mayor muriel bowser and some of her officers talking about the arrest. a man named michael wiggins has been arrested for shooting that little 7-year-old girl on friday night. that shooting shocked a lot of people in this community. >> we're glad to know the little girl is recovering. she's hospitalized. the mayor says she's anxious to get back to school and they say they belie they were able to make this arrest with ethe help of the public. a man dead after crashing
4:16 pm
the man was driving here rutland road around noon when he ran off the road and hit trees. maryland state police are working to see what might have caused him to lose control. we're still working to learn his identity. the victim's identity. an important traffic alert now. new bus lanes opened along a stretch of georgia avenue in northwest. drivers who don't follow the rules could face big fines. as news4 kristin wright reports, the goal is to help buses move more quickly on one of the city's busiest corridors. >> 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 is what you need to know. the new bus lanes are in georgia avenue between florida and barry place over by howard. it's about three blocks. the laennes are clearly marked s
4:17 pm
cabs with passengers get through. bicycles are allowed in the bus lane but you cannot drive, you cannot 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. now, later this spring ddot is going to put down a red surfacing paint to make the lanes stand out more. again, the fine is 2 -- $200. absolutely i would not agree to having any cia officer carrying out waterboarding again. >> the presidential campaign has brought waterboarding back to the forefront of national security discussions, and tonight we have a preview of a new interview with cia director john brennan that you're going to see only on nbc news. richard engel joins us now with more on director brennan's stance
4:18 pm
donald trump is already calling brennan's position on this issue ridiculous. senator ted cruz has said he doesn't even consider waterboarding to be torture. what did director brennan say to you about some of the rhetoric from the campaign trail? >> well, this came -- it was a surprise actually. i went to the cia headquarters at langley and i was planning on talking about isis and that's what we talked about, about counterterrorism and what's being done to fight groups like al qaeda and isis, and we were talking about the agency's successes and failures, and director brennan said that one of the things that -- a lesson learned was about enhanced interrogations. that's the term for interrogation techniques like waterboarding and others. practices that were made illegal in 2009 under president obama. and he said that they're not going down that road. they're not going to do it again.
4:19 pm
about the republican candidates who say they want to bring it back? and in quite clear terms, he said we're not doing it. we're not going down that road. we've learned lessons from the past. they're not necessary, and the cia doesn't want to get back into that business again. and numerous legal obstacles have been put in place that would make it extraordinarily difficult for a future president to try to force the cia to get back into the business of waterboarding and others, and now we have very publicly an acting cia director saying they won't go back. >> and, richard, just to short of draw that out a little bit, i mean, you've had years of experience talking to intelligence officials. do you get the sense that brennan is speaking for the internal culture of the cia or is there a chance you get a new president, you get a new cia director who may be more amenable to some of these techniques? >> it wouldn't just be a matter of switching the cia
4:20 pm
there have been -- there was a justice department memo that was used as a justification for this -- legal opinion i should say that was used to justify the program under the bush administration. that has since been repealed. there's the mccain amendment. the fact that in 2009 it was made to be illegal. so many laws would have to -- mean legal hurdles i should say would have to be overcome to bring these practices back. that's one thing, so it wouldn't just be a simple matter of flipping a switch and turning it on again, but the internal culture at the cia, i think many people there felt burned by this. they felt that they were left holding the bag. the people who were involved in the program faced criminal investigations, length y investigations. there were public hearings on this. many people had to hire at their own expense
4:21 pm
and i think when you have all these combination of public condemnation and inquiries and criminal investigations on a program that was at the time sanctioned by the administration, even with that sanctioning, they had so much problems. so i think they felt that they're not willing to do it again. >> all right. well said. thank you very much, richard. as richard mentioned, the waterboarding topic was just a small part of what he spoke to director brennan about. the full interview with cia director robert brennan is coming up -- or john brennan is coming up on "nbc nightly news" at 7:00 right here on nbc 4. the tax clock is ticking away. "first at 4," what to do to make sure you're ready, and what you should do if you can't m

thomas since that confirmation hearing. well, he said it last week and repeated it today. alabama governor robert bentley says he has, quote, no plans to step down. last week state lawmakers started the process to impeach bentley and remove him from office. it stems from an alleged affair between bentley and his long-time staffer while he was still married. some lawmakers say they can't trust his leadership anymore but today bentley said there's no basis for impeachment. the fbi says it still needs your help despite a huge number of leads in a notorious murder case. it's been two years now since the fbi named william bradford bishop to its ten most wanted list, and since his addition to the list, local and federal law enforcement officials say they have followed up on more than 650 new leads in the case. he's accused in the brutal murders of his wife, his mother, and three children in bethesda 40 years ago. the news4 i-team creaed
