5:01 am
new york city police officers. patrol cars still on scene here as well. we expect that this area will be closed off. the new york city police department just released a statement saying this will be closed off for the foreseeable future. the latest on the investigation coming up in just a minute. for now chris and eun, back to you. >> it's now 5:01. we're working for you to get you out the door on time. >> we'll let you know about any traffic tie-ups on the road. we want to start with storm team 4 meteorologist sheena parveen. how's it looking out there? >> good morning, guys. still chilly. as we go through the day today, one thing you'll notice, a lot of clouds around. 46 in washington, 43 leesburg and lorton 43. manassas, 41 degrees. 39 in winchester. long sleeves, the jackets, but here come the clouds. now we have some clear skies with thin cloud cover. more cloud cover back off to the west. that will start to move in. the rain you see off to the
5:02 am
but then it will break up. we really just have some sprinkles in the forecast. now your wednesday commute, the roads will be nice and dry. again, a few sprinkles. don't be surprised if you see that by lunchtime, 60 degrees. through the afternoon we'll still be cool in the mid 60s. a huge warmup as we go in through the week. wait until you see the temperatures, melissa mollet. the commute doesn't look too bad. >> pretty good. the earlier problem we were worried about was the road work we were talking about earlier. near serat road. in bound 66 at the beltway, still have that traffic stopped because of the deer that was hit. we just got off the phone with police. should be out of the way soon. 66 overall will be okay. so is 95 in virginia. 95 in maryland, top of the beltway. everything moving along nicely. 270, no major issues as you're moving along. 270 to the spur, going to take you 26 minutes. same thing outbound,
5:03 am
issues there. we want to go back to the breaking news in new york, and this poignant shot from the world trade center, the site of the worst terror attack on american soil. it is lit up in red, white and blue this morning just hours after yesterday's melee a few blocks away. that is where a man drove a truck on to a bike path killing eight people and as aaron mentioned, who is live there, that truck is still on the scene this morning as investigators continue to collect evidence. >> yeah. aaron, can you tell us the latest on what you're hearing about the investigation at this point? >> reporter: yeah, chris. i have to say that since you mentioned the world trade center, i can see it. we're right here in the footprint of the world trade center. you may be able to see the top of the building there from this camera shot. that red, white, blue light is off now. it was definitely on last night as a show of strength from new york city. this is very much an active crime scene.
5:04 am
and going this morning. want to give you first an idea of what exactly happened here yesterday afternoon and where this all happened. this unfolded in the shadow, as we said, of the world trade center 3:00 yesterday afternoon in the tribeca neighborhood. the suspect drove the rented truck on to a bike path on west street, the west side highway if you're familiar with this area near houston street. he collided with a school bus. witnesses say he jumped out of that rented truck and he shouted alla akbar or god is great. this is a photo of officers detaining that suspect after he was shot by an officer. eight people died, 11 people seriously hurt. law enforcement telling nbc news the man left a note inside that truck claiming that he was committing this attack for isis. new york's governor, andrew cuomo, says the attack appeared to be the work of a lone wolf, eun. at this point local
5:05 am
as well as the fbi and new york state police are investigating this still trying to get a motive. we know they spoke with the suspect last night or spoke to him. he didn't say anything back. he's still in serious condition in the hospital as well. >> aaron, we know that after he crashed into the people on the bike path he crashed into a school bus which could only be so terrifying for the parents who are wondering about their children. this is happening as school was letting out for the day. >> reporter: right. there are at least i know two schools in this area that should have been letting out right around 3:00 yesterday afternoon when this all happened. we know that that school bus had two children, two adults on it. all four of them were hurt, taken to the hospital. we know the injuries are serious, but authorities here do expect that everyone who was injured here will survive their injuries. >> when he got out with the two guns their inclination was to take all the kids that were coming out of is 289 and ps 89 andke
5:06 am
all go back inside and help them upstairs. >> reporter: now the parents say that those two dads that jumped into action and tried to help out, tried to protect those kids may very well have saved their lives. none of them knew where the suspect was headed at that point so they had to presume that they were in danger. so some stories of heroism absolutely coming out as we learn more about what happened here yesterday afternoon. eun, chris? >> terrible tragedy. that is the one bright side that we know, that people are willing to put themselves at risk. >> two dads running into that school. thank you so much, aaron. 5:06. more now on the suspect. he came to the u.s. legally in 2010. officials say he had been staying in new jersey where he allegedly rented the truck he used in yesterday's deadly attack. his permanent address is listed in tampa, florida. we were over the apartment complex as investigators interviewed his neighbors. most of them told our affiliate that he seems like a nice guy but thid
5:07 am
>> we only saw him early in the morning and then at night. he was here one day and the next day you're hearing that he did something in new york, something that you can't even major you can't believe it. >> we also learned the suspect was an uber driver for six months and made more than 1400 trips. investigators saisai pof didny have a big social media footprint. back to the soft targets. >> open, relatively unprotected areas where you get a lot of people congregating. news 4's justin finch is live on the national mall. >> reporter: that's right. soft targets are open air spaces that are easy to access but a bit more complicated to secure like the mall here where tourists and families come and gather from around the world every single day. we
5:08 am
mind. first, experts say to keep an eye out for cameras. everyone has one these days. watch where they are pointing, particularly at doors or secured areas. they say those can be some serious red flags. also, one of our many venues in this area. access, they say those can be suspicious questions as well. some signs are going to be a bit more obvious like pulling an alarm to see what the response might be, but others are a bit morphine tuned. you have to keep your eyes open and police want you to do that as well, especially now as they are stepping up their patrols. >> two things we can do, we can make operational moves to make sure people are as safe as they possibly can be. the other thing is to make people feel save. >> reporter: we can tell you police were out in full force

traffic citations. don't forget that parts of indian head highway are an active construction zone. this is people coming through here when there are workers out here on the roads, and a lot of people are speeding in this area. one of the things that they actually found and one of the arrests that they made was a driver who was doing 115 miles an hour in a 55-mile-an-hour zoin. indian head highway has long stretches in between lights where you're able to pick up speed. 115 in a 55-mile-an-hour zone. police are getting real serious about cracking down on drivers who are not doing the right thing out here. we're also hearing that one of the drivers who was speeding had two small people in their car. one of them not in a car seat in the front seat. there are people not following the rules of the road. so the crackdown is expected to continue as you guys mentioned. it's going to -- there's going
