5:24 pm
we will see showers this evening. if you're headed to the nationals game, take the umbrella and the poncho just in case. the temperatures falling through the 60s as we get the showers in here. currently, look how cool we are. we're supposed to be upper 70s. average high, 77. we're 10 degrees below average. so a cool afternoon because of the easterly flow and yes, we have flowers. they are widely scattered, more to the south coming in, up towards frederick, leesburg, the marshall area, along 66. we are getting wet in some locations, but there's more rain coming. look at this shield of rain to the south. a little bit of a break, but here comes that rain. we will see showers throughout the evening tonight. if you're thinking about getting out, watch out for that. but the bulk of the rain, see this little spin in the atmosphere, that's kicking up big-time thunderstorms, even a tornado warning south of

5:30 pm
everywhere and all sorts. >> chaos and confusion outside after an explosion outside the of the ariana grande concert, as thousands tried to make their way out of that verizon center-sized venue in england. 22 people killed, dozens injured when a lone suicide bomber set off an ied outside the manchester arena. among the dead, an 8-year-old girl. police identified the bomber as a 22-year-old british man. he is said to be the libyan descent. overnight and this morning, another young man was taken into custody as raids were carried out in at least two cities. >> more than ever, it is vital to have diverse communities that make manchester such a strong place, actually stand together. we will, therefore, not tolerate hate towards any parts of our community. >> isis is
5:31 pm
but intel officials in the uk and the u.s. have not confirmed that. there are a lot of unknowns when it comes to the suspected bomber in the attack, and it's also raised concerns again with how to protect soft targets. joining us now, fbi special agent clint watts. this guy was apparently known to british authorities. is there any way to track when someone on their radar searches things online, like how to make a bomb, or track chatter about this kind of attack? >> well, i think nations are in the counterterrorism fight do track that chatter and pick up on those signals, but that's not always cause to start an investigation or even do surveillance. i think the other problem that europe has and the uk in particular, as opposed to the united states, there's far more people to investigate or look into, or track
5:32 pm
plotting an attack than there are resources available to do it. we've been lucky in the united states that per capita, we have far fewer recruits and inspired individuals that want to participate in terrorist violence. >> very good point. and we saw this kind of attack in paris, but this time it happened at that ariana grande concert, where you would expect much of the audience to be young girls. what does that say about this bomber, if anything, in where he decided to carry out this attack? it very much suggests it's not in line with traditional terror group thinking. al qaeda had learned long ago that killing women, children in particular, was bad for their brand. and the islamic state, while even more maniacal in hitting targets al qaeda would never have considered, probably is not going to receive much support for killing innocent young people in such a way, suggesting that the attacker wasn't really in contact
5:33 pm
state or their central planners who might have directed them more towards an adult audience or a different soft target. >> this also happened outside the venue, as we know. is there anything that we can do when we leave a sporting event or a concert of this nature? >> i think the number one thing everyone can do, when you see something, say something. it's usually local tips, tips from civilians that are involved, or attending the event that are the best signals for law enforcement. the best sensors out there are those people who know the community, and the behavior of other people. those tips are what get us to prevent the attack, rather than respond to it. >> our thanks to former fbi special agent clint watts. and we invite you to stay tuned after news4 at 6:00, for all the latest in the uk. lester holt from "nbc nightly news" will anchor a special edition of that program from manchester. back here in our area, we
5:34 pm
involve online sales, but this time a young woman is out several hundred dollars in a case involving funny money. pat? >> reporter: wendy, it went sideways. this was a beach trip that got off to a really bad start. you might say it's a story right out of the movies. sad, sad movies. this is hana burly. she lived in frederick. she's anticipa18 years old, goe college, and works part time. she was planning to go to the beach next weekend. she was going to sell her old iphone to finance the trip. but now, she's left empty handed. in fact, she's out $50. >> you feel like you were taken? >> oh, yeah. very taken advantage of, for sure. >> reporter: the ad, using an
5:35 pm
for $420. soon she was contacted by xavier. he said he would pay 450, but hana would have to bring the iphone to germantown. >> why did he offer you more than what you asked? snge >> i think it was because i was taking time to drive to germantown from walkersville. so maybe he wanted to be nice and pay for my gas or something. >> reporter: the meet, the parking lot of kohl's in germantown. xavier had the money stuffed in one of those bank envelopes. hana gives it a quick look, she gives him the iphone and 50 bucks, he goes this way, she goes that way. deal done. the heartbreak. hana goes back to her bank and tries to deposit the money into her atm, but that money, it keeps coming back out. >> as you stuck the money into the atm -- >> yeah, nothi
5:36 pm
>> yes. >> and back? >> yes. >> and then you looked close and what did you find out? >> i saw the bottom of one of the bills, and it said, for prop use only. >> reporter: in the end, hana ends up with movie money. at first glance, it looks realistic, but there are some signs. i'll tell you about them at 6:00 when i show you the money. and xavier, xavier, shame on you. jim? >> shame, indeed. thank you, pat. see you at 6:00. listen to this, folks. in a find in old town, alexandria, human remains dating on the 1700 or 1800s have been unearthed. archaeologists are on site and they've discovered evidence of
