leave, for years. this is why i'm doing this i didn't have to do this. i was having a very nice life. >> so as he normally does donald trump wants to undue president obama's economic agenda, that is what he says he wants to do if he becomes president, including as he always say repealing obama care and deregulating the cole industry. hillary clinton's e-mail scandal continues to haunt her she's using olympic games to take shots at donald trump. >> if team u.s.a. was as fearful as trump, michael phelps and simone biles would be cowering in the locker room frayed to come out and compete. >> she spent 56 million-dollar in television ad during the olympics trump has not spent any. quinnipiac poll shows clinton leading trum in pennsylvania and ohio, and in a virtual tie with him in florida. well, foot the ball is back did you go to the game,
good morning i'm sean bell. football is back, all is right with the world. we have been anticipating carson wentz first action, since he was drafted and new we finally got to see it. wentz came in the second quarter and like any rookie he had a little bit of nerves. first play he over throws his target but after that he actually settled down and zach ertz over the middle for his first nfl completion. then this is why this kid was drafted, the ability to use his athletism and dart for a completion. eagles win 17-nine, overall a very good start for carson wentz. >> finally got to take some hit, been a while since that has happened. overall i had fun. definitely some things to improve on for myself and as a
team but overall enjoyable. >> quick basketball note lebron james signed a three-year, 100 million-dollar deal, ridiculous, that is sports in a minute, i'm sean bell. one hundred million-dollar over three years for lebron. >> he made it. >> he made it big. >> it is end of an era for new york yankees tonight alex rodriguez, we call him a rod, plays his last major league baseball game as yankees face tampa bay up in the bronx. we have learn he asked joe girardi to play third base tonight, his old position. he played short stop for a while in his career but you know what joe said, no. yankees planned a pregame ceremony recognizing a rod, he will be an advisor and instructor for the new york yankees. 6:25. >> he is not going anywhere. >> he will not be on the feel, right sue.
>> that is right. >> some of us will be under a watch, some of us under a warning but it is excessive heat no matter what, hot through sunday, dave, can you handle it. >> i will do my best. another child injured at an park in pennsylvania this time we will tell you exactly where and what happened, steve. i can use word like sue just did we have a crime watch and a warning for bullet flying, as this heat wave, also, fights with the crime wave for the headlines this week. it's a pretty simple question: is
pat toomey's agenda your agenda? toomey voted seven times to defund planned parenthood. he even tried to shut down the federal government
in order to eliminate funding for planned parenthood. and toomey's against a woman's right to choose
and supports overturning roe v. wade which would allow states to criminalize abortion. pat toomey: he's focused on his own agenda, not us. majority forward is responsible for the content of this advertising.

us especially here in the city. even by 6:00 o'clock 91 degrees and chance, of course, of pop up showers and thunderstorms. we have seen this morning and yesterday they can pop up at anytime. we had that shower yesterday bob kelly, and it could happen today as well. >> when i left here heading out to breakfast bam we got hit with the thunder boomers and heavy downpour and that quickly the sun came out. good morning 6:31. we have an accident on the admiral wilson boulevard heading in to new jersey at baird boulevard. headlights here coming off that airport circle heading in toward philadelphia a. a down tree monument road is block at presidential avenue right off of city line avenue. watch out for local detours this weekend beginning tonight septa is putting in the trolley blitz. no service on the subway surface trolleys in the tunnels here. they begin tonight all the way through early monday morning. so from center city take

investigation continues. >> as i understand it right now the tip line has revealed or resulted in no tips from that shooting as well, so that is two, six years olds shot within a week of each other and no witnesses have come forward. >> reporter: looking at our video you will see five cars that we know of shot and with daylight more houses that have had bullets. one of them, get this woman does laundry you have a kid upstairs, she was downstairs when bullets were fired thankfully because bullets hit the house upstairs. she's putting laundry in the dresser, it is bullet riddle. she takes it out where she just put clean lots and there is one sitting on top of some clothes that she had just folded and put in that dresser. that is how close it came and even worse then it sound right new with the facts we have been giving you. >> well, no wonder in germantown and east germantown are on edge. >> two, six years old have been hit in just the past few
