initially fairfax county police said they did not think that he had any gang ties but with further investigation they found that he was associated with gang activity. police still aren't saying which gang. ms-13 obviously has been the big one in fairfax and montgomery counties. his body was found earlier this week about 30 miles away from here in prince william county. we'll show you some photos now. these were taken by a viewer as police recovered the body. this was in the nokesville area. you can see it looks like a large field, some farmland there. i asked prince william county police the manner of deaths death,how they think the victim died. they're not saying anything about that for now. they tell me they have not raid any arrests in the murder. there have been three suspects under arrest for lesser charges in this case. 20-year-old josé vincent sosa, 18-year-old edwin moreno and a female juvenile were arrested last week charged with

5:16 pm
wamu transportation reporter martin dicaro joining us with why this is kind of a big deal. >> reporter: that's right. let's remember how we got here. the string of safety lapses in 2015 including the l'enfant plaza smoke fiasco which claimed the life of carol glover of alexandria. it was determined that the current oversight body at the time was not and sufficient. so it took years to create a new metro safety commission. at least we have the legislation now. now the commission itself has to be put together and the legislature that president trump signed into law again years in the making does not require the commission members to be rail safety experts. now, i spoke to a number of current experts and former government officials about this and there are split opinins about whether this will really mat if you have say a transit agency expert or someone who is an expert in public finance also on this all important oversight board that's being put together. really what it comes down to is whe
5:17 pm
will be safety. so, even if their background is in something other than the mechanics of rail safety, as long as this commission and it is set up to deal with primarily and only safety at metro, the commission could be effective. it has a lot more enforcement authority than past oversight bodies have had at metro and that's been the key. making metro a compelling metro to follow safety rules that they have repeatedly not complied with in the past. >> all right, now one thing we know is that on monday martin there's a big meeting that involves metro. p>> yes. >> a lot of local dignitaries are getting together. what's the deal? what's happening there. >> yeah, we talked about safety. funding is so important. metro says it needs an extra $500 million a year over the next decade to maintain and expand the system. former transportation secretary ray la hood will be meeting with governors mcauliffe and hogan and muriel bowser to try to get the three jurisdictions on the same page about how to get this extra funding for metro. will it be a gas t
5:18 pm
be a regional sales tax? will it be up to the individual jurisdictions to make up their own minds about how to find the money. washington post reported today there's another disagreement about how to do this. it blew up in a behind closed door meeting yesterday. i spoke to ray la hood today. it was brought in by governor mcauliffe to deal with this issue. he said in so many words right now there is no consensus on how to fund metro's needs for the next decade. taxes are unpopular. jurisdictions don't want one regional solution. stuck on all of them to abide by. but even if the three main jurisdictions have their own disagreements between them within each of the jurisdictions there are disagreements. i'll give you one short example. in maryland some believe that the issue could be handled with existing funding, just give metro a larger percentage of already existing transportation funds. governor hogan is not hot for that idea. an alternative would
5:19 pm
prince george's county and montgomery counties to tax themselves by increasing their local sales tax. also, not a popular idea. we're not that far away from beginning of the legislative sessions even though we would rather not think of january right now but there's no consensus on this issue today. >> all right, martin dicaro busy downtown d.c. >> for sure. >> thanks for talking with us. appreciate it. we need to get you to some breaking news right now. take a look at the map on your screen. you can see where this is in d.c. we have a juvenile male shot. this happened right before 5 o'clock this afternoon. so about 20 minutes ago a little more than that. this is the 6300 block of georgia avenue northwest. what we're being told right now by police is that the victim is conscious and is breathing. we don't have any details on a suspect but of course we'll continue to follow this story and update you as we get more information. >> coming up on the 5:00 a huge drug bust. about million bucks worth of marijuana found inside of a vacant

tampa area. most recently found a gust and the beginning of an eye starting to show up of 86 miles per hour and so you can see how valuable that information is as they fly into the center of the storm and sample the environment and it helps them to not only get a more accurate forecast but really pinpoint where exactly this thing is going to be heading. as it moves north and northwest at 10 miles an hour, it's likely going to be coming ashore very close to brownsville or corpus christi and unfortunately it looks to be a category three hurricane with winds of 125 miles an hour which would be the first time since 2005 we've had a major hurricane make landfall. the other big part of this story, it just sits down here and spins. it could still be down here monday and tuesday and that's a huge amount of rain that will be falling on them. we'll talk more about hurricane harvey may be doing to texas in terms of rain coming up in our 6 o'clock newscast. today we hit 84 degrees here locally. dulles 81. bwi 82. nice low humidity day. feels great out there and our current temperature
5:46 pm
82 degrees. hagerstown 76. winchester 78. frederick -- fredericksburg 80 and also frederick at 79. so, beautiful evening and we are again letting you know there could be a passing shower north and west. better chance is west of d.c. this is the disturbance we're tracking and what it will do is just kind of reinforce the cool area aloft but it creates some clouds and as this vigorous little short wave or piece of energy comes on by, again, we could see a couple of showers here and there later on tonight. we're still going to be on the cool side dropping to 66 here in the district. mid-50's north and west so a cool start tomorrow but that humidity will still be suppressed down to the south and a nice day ahead for us with a mix of clouds and sun. we'll certainly probably have some clouds in the morning as the disturbance is continuing to move on by our area but temperature-wise, we're going to be in great shape. as early as 8:00 a.m. it's only 67 with some clouds around. by noon we brighten up to partly sunny, 77. by 5 o'clock, we're still dry, 81 degrees. tomorrow
5:47 pm
temperature i think will be 81 here in the district but low to mid 70's in some spots to our north and west and as the weekend goes on, high pressure will give us a bit of a taste of fall as it moves off the coast a little bit of an east wind develops and we're staying in the 70's with some passing clouds. upper 70's at that. your fox5 accuweather 7-day forecast let me show you that we're expecting no big heat waves, that's for sure. the warmest temperature i have on this seven-day forecast is 81 degrees. maybe we get to 82 sometime next week and in terms of rain from harvey this is not what you're seeing here. maybe a shower possible on wednesday. but we'll have to watch to see if we get some of that rain sometime next weekend, labor day weekend not exactly what we want to see but a lottery mains to be questioned with that and we'll continue to track its progress unfortunately which could be disastrous flooding for the texas coast. that is your seven day, to. jim and sarah back to you. >> sue thanks. tight end jordan read practiced for the second straight day today at redskins park. >> that's a big deal
