confirm whether, in fact, he was at that bar because no one at the bar remembers seeing seth rich. what they do know is that he had about a mile track home, thatat trek to the bloomingdaleloom neighborhood which would haveldh taken him about 30 minutes to get there.t had he gone there it would have been about 3:30, an hour before he was gunned down.n. the police at this time have no idea what happened in that hour timespan. now, just last week wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for any information that would lead too an arrest and conviction in the case. and then we heard from wikileaks founder himself julian area sann fueling rumors that rich's deatt was a hit because of his work at the dnc. that was just a robbery, i believe, wasn't it? there's no finding. > what are you suggesting? >> i'm suggesting that
sources take risks and theyey become concerns to see things occurring like that. > but was he one of your sources, then? >> we don't comment on who our sources are. > now, police sources sayourc they're aware of the theory and they watched mr. area sang's. but at this point they still contend this was a robbery goner wrong and they have no efforts to suggest that this was some sort of quote, dnc hit, however, sources into the investigation v say there were seven arrests made after set rich's death and those arrests were made inre m connection to our robberies that happened in the days and weeks leading to set rich's deaths right there in his neighborhood. there were three guns that were confiscated. they've looked into ballistics and right now there is no
between those three guns and set rich's death. right now in northwest d.c., marina maracco, fox5 local news. > also developing tonight, two us olympic swimmers are heading home from brazil afteril testifying about an alleged robbery in rio. they checked in for their flight just a short time ago.. brazil and police say they men along with their teammates, ryan lochte and jimmy feigen lied j about the rob i. tmz poked some holes in the story. i understand the us limb committee just released aease statement about the controversyv >> about 40 minutes ago, the us olympic committee did release a statement saying that they are apologizing for these athletes'' behavior. saying they're not acceptable.ea they're apologizing to theirir host rio and also confirming that there was an encounter. these are the four swimmersmmer involved in this whole
gold medal ryan ryan lochte. swimmer james feigen is still in rio and gunnar bentz and jack conger are on a plane headed back to the us. they vandalized a gas station bathroom but left before police arrived. > this was first obtained by tmz. it doesn't show a rob, is but it does however show the four swimmers walking a gas stationao in rio. four of them urinated or one of them on the side of the gase si station and then vandalized the sign and may have been intoxicated at the time.e. i spoke to tmz's harvey levin about that video and the important parts that were cut out.out. m go back to the yellow cab they were in and then there is a three-minute edit in the video. theyde insist that what happenet and it seems like the police ar now supporting this is th
the video was off or when the gas station edited it, a gun was pulled. somebody from the security team pulled a gun on them. > now, police confirmed a security guard did point a gun at the swimmers only to contain the situation, but no shots were fired.fi it's still a different investort from what lochte which initially said is that they were pullede over by someone portrayortr themselves as police. pol they say the gas workers did demand money for the damage that was done to the gas station. either way it doesn't look for the swimmers and certainly the not for ryan locket who could stand to loosen doesments. by him doing these stupid fratpi and particulars, what it shows is lack of judgment. what it shows is nobody is going to willing to say that was l too issue, that was childhoodildh nonsense, we're going to trust this guy and we're going

we're on a good track.ck. we're still going to notch another 90-degree day, if not a 92-degree day tomorrow, but then bring on the weekend and big changes beyond that. tonight we are starting with thh look at radar because i want you to see that there's in the a loe going on. we've been tracking someckin stronger storms that he ' moved onto the maryland eastern shore. this is what we've been watchinn to our south around dale city and now it's moved beyond triangle l into western portions of charles down.rles maybe you're getting a about it more rain out of this than you'd rather see than last night. that will continue to move towards the southeast. you may be getting it on that it the next little while. nobody really seeing any rainain tonight. i think once we get that little disturbance out of here that will be it we're still 83 in the district, but 73 for martinsburg, 73 up towards frederick. humidity still up there, but up again all of that will get better. don't expect a less humid day
tomorrow. it will still be humid. it will still be warm. high pressure is going to be inn a position to pump in that southern heat for us. but it should be generally a dry day. again, anything we would see around in terms of rain or even a thunderstorm would be very isolated and kind of surprising if bee didn't get it. a warm day, a sunny case, a little bit humid, but not oppressive. let's look at your plannerlann foretop. 77-degrees at 8 in the morning.g but then we jump it 10 moree degrees and then we're back at 92 at 4:00 to fill up this very warm workweek. 88 for gaithersburg and annapolis, 91 for fredericksburg. for the weekend we're going to be attacking the approach of dryer more comfortable air and r by monday it is in here. as we change over from the who the, humid air mass to this dry, more comfortable air mass, big time thunderstorms possibleposs sunday. that might be a day in which you're really going to have too keep an eye to the sky. that's what we're going to
your attention to as we look at our weekend forecast.or the least stormy day will be sat with only isolated storms expected in the afternoon, buteo then watch any time after sunday afternoon into the evening for those strong storms to bring inr a change. we'll probably see a few of them at the beaches later in the day as well. upper 80s to near 90 for our forecast at the beaches. very quickly i just wanted to mention, our water temperaturer nice and warm at 75 and we continue to track what is tropical storm fee own a, but bu most of our computer models do have it moving more to the northwest. if that continues it's in the going to threaten any land mass. that's wrap it with our seven w day forecast.da we are going to see temperaturer getting back into the mid 80s by monday with less humid air.id it's going to feel great to you tuesday, wednesday and thursdayy and the 60s at night.ht. shawn, tone initial i cannot wait to open up my wind s at home. that air-conditioning feels likg it has been
