a little damp out there. you may need your umbrella at times. but, here's something. a milestone, i suppose. your official sunset time, 8:00. ya we love those long days. and as bob had mention earlier, it is dining under the stars night media which is hugely popular while all of the restaurant put their tables outside on the streets. think i we will be okay on this evening's dining under the stars. do you have try it sometime, bob kelly. >> i look forward to that, yes, i think you mentioned one of the future spring fling locations. >> indeed it will be. >> not this week there is week this friday, we are going to allentown but right now, we take to you bellmawr, new jersey, live look at an accident here, this is the 42 freeway right at the ramps for 295. so, it is the southbound 42 freeway, here are the ramps from 295 north. looks like right here, at this merge is where we have the accident the ram at any self is blocked. these folks haven't moved here in the last couple of minutes. so as you are getting ready
to step out the front door, you come over the walt whitman bridge into new jersey, and then head south on 42, it is right here, at that 295 and 42 interchange. and looking at those -- the headlight there, that are not moving at all if you are leaving south jersey your best bet would be to use route 130. 130 will give you access to that same 42 freeway and you will be in good shape. dad vail regatta rose into town. they'll be bringing the boats in today, crews arriving being practicing today tomorrow, races run friday and saturday, so watch for delays and closures of the kelly drive over the next couple every days. and in elwyn road at the baltimore pike in media. some downed wires folks using rose tree road for the mourning rush hour. >> breaking news, police trying to piece together what led to up triple shooting in north philadelphia overnight. >> one person dead, police trying to determine what the surviving victims might know

this happened just past midnight. the question is were these three guys shooting at each other? because we have two wounded and one dead, or were there other guys with other guns who got away? >> based on balistic evidence on the scene we know a lot of shots fired. we found 32 spent shell casings, on the highway sixth and clearfield also the sidewalk and the street in the 3100 block of north sixth street. of these 32 shell casings we know that there are at least two separate caliber, the shell cases are two separate calibers. they know they came from two separate size handguns. also found on the scene, were three semiautomatic weapons we found two guns under a mini-van on sixth street we found a third gun in a recycling trash bucket on one of the porches in the 3100 block of north sixth street. so in addition to the 32 spent shell casings we also have three weapons recovered.
fortunately, at the intersection of sixth and clearfield we found two businesses that do have exterior surveillance cameras. so hopefully these cameras recorded something that can help with us this triple shooting homicide investigation. >> they don't expect help from the two wound the guys not just considered victims of gunshots but considered suspect, and may have been doing some shooting themselves. that's why they don't expect to get much cooperation. so imagine that conversation that you don't have to have today, and be thankful that you live where you live, than doesn't happen on your street and also, think about all of the people that do live on that street, and what they have to go through what they are telling their kids as they get ready for school. >> yes, good reminder, good perspective steve thank you. also breaking this morning part of home collapse last night in south philadelphia. >> this happened on the 1400 block of bouvier street just before 3:00. the home is vacant, so no one in the neighboring houses were hurt. >> philadelphia police looking
