11:08 am
here to get a sense of what happened. they're also looking to the officer's body-worn camera to shed more light on what happened here when that officer arrived. as for the officer, he is now on leave. we are told that he's a ten-year veteran of the force. in wheaton, i'm justin finch. news 4. right now a teenage girl has gone missing again, just a month after she was abducted and then found. this is sanahi aguilar cruz and she's 16 years old. police said she left home in woodbridge saturday night and hasn't been seen since. if you happen to see her, please contact police immediately. he's accused of carrying out one of the most notorious murders in recent memory and he is back in court in d.c. darren wynn is taking part in a d.c. mansion murder. he accused

11:11 am
signs hereio you can bet, if it works e dot will stay with you. >> $11 to park two hours on the street? >> like the gentleman said you can't drive into the city. you have to take uber or mass transit. you know what? the price of parking is not the only thing going up. gas prices on the rise, as well. so we will have a look at what is driving up the cost. and we have a lot more on election day now just less than 24 hours away. we'll run down what you need

11:13 am
health care. but that's exactly where i find myself because of politicians like bob marshall. marshall voted against expanding medicaid to thousands of virginians who get up every day and go to work but still can't afford insurance. and marshall wants to end obamacare, allowing insurance companies to deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. virginians like you and me. i'm danica roem, candidate for delegate, and i sponsored this ad. for a baby's heart in thel, first 12 weeks of pregnancy. and a future when prenatal pediatrics leads to healthier children. it's being the number one newborn intensive care unit in the country. and giving parents peace of mind. it's less recovering in our bed, and more jumping on yours. stronger is standing out and standing proud. because we don't just want your kids to grow up. we want them to grow up stronger.

11:16 am
and the hard-hitting ads -- >> correct, the question to me is what matters more? the environment which is really rough for republicans or the tactics that you can give in the republican column and the force that plays out and it's a bigger factor. we'll tell you who wins tomorrow. >> these are two mild-mannered guys and yet the race is nasty. we are seeing your first sanctuary city. it's gotten brutal. >> the debate moderated by chuck todd and the next day you start seeing the ms-13 ads and it's been rough-and-tumble from both sides and that's how politics is right now, but to me it's ironic how national the stakes are in this race were given that we're talking about the governor's race and virginia which is so close to the white house does have more
11:17 am
>> for democrats or drepublican. >> the democrats feel they need to win to say the resistance is on our side. if they come up short that will be a bad side for them and the stakes are higher for the democrats going into the race tomorrow. >> it all comes down to voter turnout. what are you hearing about what we expect? >> what we expect is the turnout is going to be very high which should benefit democrats. when they didn't perform that well in 2014 when mark warner barely ended up gaining reelection and what we see from early indications and the early vote so far as well the canvassing, and we soften 2016 and the democrats had the edge, too. we'll see if that enthusiasm does play out for democrats this time. >> thank you very much. mark, thanks for joining us. we'll look for your reporting starting pretty early in the morning. >> stay with us, news 4

11:29 am
attended this church and we know that he had made threatening texts from him and we can't go into details about that domestic situation that is continuing to be vetted and thoroughly investigated, but we want to get that out there that this was not racially motivate. it wasn't over religious beliefs. there was a domestic situation going on within the family and the in-laws and that's the wilson county district attorney ab aubrey lewis who would like to say something. >> good morning. we've learned this morning just how smalltown america truly is. we've had a tremendous outpouring across the country for people wanting to assist our families in need and i want to make sure how everyone can help and you can help by

[ inaudible question ] >> we don't. [ inaudible question ] you've been watching our breaking news coverage of the mass shooting there in texas with a live news conference by some of the investigators. i think the thing that jumped out to me was the fact that we learned that devin kelley allegedly sent threatening text messages to his mother-in-law and the mother-in- a
11:33 am
there. >> yeah. this is the most information i think we've been able to gather about a possible motive here, the threatening text messages sent to his mother-in-law. we do know that this man was kicked out of the air force for an assault charge against his estranged wife and child and served time, as well, in a court-martial proceeding there, and we heard the public safety official as well rule out racial, religious motivation and pointing in and zeroing in on the domestic-related tie here. >> all of this is very preliminary and very early so i don't want to jump into any conclusion and it appears that's the road they're going down in the investigation. we'll keep an eye on that news conference and we want to get you up-to-date on other stories. paul manafort will remain under house arrest after a
