their respects to a grandmother who was beloved in south philadelphia, you can see there was just a line around the block right there. she was shot in her own store. >> this is on christmas eve, right? my gosh. the good byes come as police make an arrest in her murder, they are calling it, an act of revenge. steve keeley in south philadelphia, steve. >> reporter: well, it was revenge a begins marie's grandson that was real shocker that came out yesterday. we're out front of saint mary magdellan church just four blocks from where marie buck was killed and this is where her funeral will be held later today. in a coincidence we have new information, why a killer from overbrook, deal drugs town here, how did he know her grandson? well, her store, was at sixth and titan. this guy, 31 year-old maurice green, grew up four blocks from the store. grew up there. went to that store as a kid. so he knew the family. knew her grandson. he grew up at sixth and
carpenter right by his grandparent down here in south philadelphia. when they moved to the west philadelphia overbrook area, he came back here, and this is where he would deal drugs with the grandson apparently according to police, arrested twice just this year that we know of among his 15 to 17 arrests, since he became an adult. >> something that he he was into unfortunately and ultimately got his grandmother killed. he is very sad, family is very upset but did he work with us. >> obviously she was intended target. he opened up the door and shot her 11 times. what we believe the grandson was supposed to be working that morning, so we think he was there with the intention of shooting, killing the grandson. he opened up the door, saw the grandmother and then he hade choice that he would kill the grandmother since he wases not there. >> he alleged that this jewelry was taken that was estimated it is worse anywhere between five and $10,000. in police report was ever made so we don't no that but that is what he is alleging that
the grandson and someone else, got into his house, stole his jewelry and pawned his jewelry it is one of the more horrific murders i have dealt with in nine years. we have a 81 year-old grandmother, defense less, beloved by the community and to be killed in this hander it is just horrific, it is very sad but we are very happy that we were able to put this to a close in a very short time period. >> reporter: i learn from police yesterday that the grandson is in his 20's, close to the 31 years old that the accused killer maurice green is and how about that information, maurice green likely knew the woman he killed real well, probably grew up, she probably made sandwiches for him as she did everybody else here in south philadelphia and what he didn't know was that she had 750 bucks cash in her pocket, more in the register, she would have gave him all of it, and debt would have been paid off if she knew her grandson
had this debt but grandson didn't tell her and this guy didn't ask any questions, just came in blasting away, knowing who he was killing and likely knowing this woman. we don't know that for sure but would you figure if he grew up just down sixth street from this store as a kid, knew her grandson that they knew her too. that makes it even more shocking, at 6:00 a.m. today. >> yeah, all right steve, just senseless. reparticular lust. 6:06. >> we have had new developments russia going tit for tat with the you had suggesting now that it will be expelling dozens of our diplomates ape close two of our facilities in moscow after , of course, president obama announced very similar sanctionness retaliation for at alleged hacking of the u.s. election by russia. white house accused russian president putin orchestrating it forwarded to wikileaks. russia promised retaliation against u.s. and maybe that is coming. 6:06. you said tit for tat twice.
>> there you go. >> it can happen again in the next hour. >> okay. >> thank you for watching good day fail on this friday, i know, i'm probably looking a little sun burned. >> we're a little bit jealous. >> a little bit. >> 6:07 now. this is a horrible story. a former elect official in delaware county is in trouble with the law. big time. prosecutors say that william spangler assaulted an elderly woman, 103 years old. used to be a radnor township commissioner, william spangler is facing indecent assault charges for instance dents that happened at a nursing home. he has a preliminary hearing scheduled for january the fifth. so right now we are getting ready for, of course, new years eve and we do it so well here. we do it at 6:00. we do it midnight with the
fire works. >> that is right, early for the kid, later for the adults. >> what will you be doing? >> i don't know. i just don't know. i was going to come up with some quip but i don't know what i will be doing. >> well, whatever you want to do jenny joyce will have our plans, out here. >> this is what i won't be to go shooting a hand gun in the air, come on folks, we have to stop doing this, jenny. >> that is for sure. >> reporter: positive thing is you can come down here for fire works at penns landing but police want everyone, to be celebrating safely. while you are counting down to the new year and celebrating with fire works, friend, family, philadelphia police want to remine people not to be celebrating by firing a gunshot into the air. twenty-nine year-old joe jasku lka is living proof of the harm that can happen when people fire their guns in celebration, when he was just 11 years old he was walking down the street in south
philadelphia and was struck in the head by a bullet that was fired, in celebration. the bullet remained lodged in his head and has been paralyzed ever since. >> what goes up, must come down. i just can't believe that people think that once it goes up, it gets sucked into outer space. and it is just crazy. >> reporter: city officials know new years day is a big day of celebration in our city they want people to be careful , enjoy good, clean fun many people head over to broad street and march on famous mummers day par ray a famous tradition, expect to see lots of block off roads along the parade route which starts at city hall and moves south to washington avenue. on new years day there are parking and driving restrictions, through center city and south philadelphia. so, parade will kick off at 9:00 a.m. on sun dane and to get a full listing of the road

boy scouts are responding after a new jersey boy says he was kick out of his pack, because they found out he is transgendered. >> so they say joe maldonado does not meet eligibility requirements to be in the program. boy's mom christie say joe has been living as a boy for past two years, his school has accepted her child and she cannot understand why the cub scouts won't. >> i sound like why make a big tiehl, he wasn't bothering anybody, he was having fun, he lives as a boy.
>> i think i'm very sad and angry. there is no difference if i'm a girl and they are all boys and i didn't bother them. i was having fun. >> well, mom came forward because she would like to have her child's story shared and she hopes that there are changes in the future and that is why she's talking and hopes that the boy scouts kill call and apologize. >> we shall see what happens. new year brings new changes to affect your wallet. hear why penndot says that the increased gasoline tax, in pennsylvania, will actually benefit all of us.
you know, in philadelphia, we count down twice, with fire works, in philadelphia. we have had the 6:00 o'clock count down. it will be about 40 degrees tomorrow night for that one. not only for the kid but for people like me who can never stay up this will midnight. here's the midnight temperature about 35 degrees. it could be worse, a lot colder, best part, it will be try for your new years celebrations tomorrow. a lot colder today then yesterday. we have got cold wind coming across the great lakes, lake effect snow, and as we see here the possibility during the day of maybe a pop up snow shower or two, just because of
that moisture coming off of the great lakes, it will be brief if you do see a snow shower or snow squall and it could happen at anytime, then we're try through new years eve. it looks like we will stay dry , even to the south of us, it is very slight chance of a shower but the big rain comes on monday just as we get back to reality on the second day of january, rain comes from the south and that will be with a warm front. right now 35 degrees in philadelphia we are in the mid 30's every where else but it feels chillier then that thanks to the wind. wind will be picking up more after sunrise time so that is for temperatures through 20's. wind chillies 26 degrees in philadelphia right now. we have westerlies coming in sustain at 14 miles an hour here in philadelphia. so seven day forecast, cold one today, 41 but feels like 30's all day. forty-three tomorrow. wind calm down, should be a decent new years eve night, and for the parade on sunday plenty of sunshine we will start off in the upper 30's, end up in the upper 40's, a great the forecast for new
years day, rain rolls rolls in on monday and lasts through tuesday, it is mild for those two days, tuesday and wednesday, but will get colder by thursday and that is your seven day forecast, we're checking traffic on your friday morning with a look at the closures on sunday for mummers parade, big road that will be closed jfk boulevard between 15th and 20th street, your alternate there is arch street. market between 15th and 16th street your alternate is race street and these closures in effect starting at 3:00 on sunday and going until 6:00 in the evening. more hummers there 7:00 a.m. until the event conclusion, broad street from south penn square and washington avenue from 12 to 18th, closed. disabled vehicle to check on here route 202 north bound in paoli just before you get to route 252, and a look at the schuylkill expressway at montgomery drive, all is well mike and karen. >> thanks, sue. we have got new developments that have have just happened in the last half

russian government owned compound in the u.s., following move president-elect donald trump says it is time for our country to move on to bigger, better things but did say he will meet with intelligence officials for an update. >> great political fanfare and largely symbolic but will it have impact? >> reporter: new sanctions could be reversed by mr. trump once president but top senate republicans approve of the sanctions. some call them a small price in awe push for stronger sanctionness congress. >> if the next president wants to lift sanctities as begins senior russian intelligence units to make it easier to interfere with our elections then he can do so. we just don't think that will make sense. >> in a initial response, russia has reportedly closed an american school in moscow that serves children of u.s. diplomates. president obama is warning that the u.s. may still take further actions, covert against russia. in new york patricia starks "fox news". 6:20. so, we're all ushering in the

we will check traffic with this disable vehicle close-up look but i'll tell what you road, it is on i-95 southbound a roaching the blue route. now it is off to the shoulder and we understand tow truck is on the scene about ready to remove that vehicle. the big road closed on sunday for mummers parade, jfk boulevard between 15th and 20th street, and market between 15th and 16th. this is from 3:00 a.m. to 6:00 m 7:00 a.m. until everything is finish, broad street from penn square, washington avenue, from 12th to 18th also closed. an accident this delaware i-95 north bound at off ramp to route 202, there was a little, report of ice on the roadway, and caused a couple of accidents there.
it is 6:45. a look at traffic and weather in 15 seconds. having looked at traffic already let us proceed to the forecast, for tomorrow night, there are two fire works, one at 6:00 where it is 40 degrees and when we say welcome to the new year at midnight it will be 35 degrees, best news about the new year's eve forecast is it will be dry. we don't expect any precipitation. we have a few snow flurries that is creeping town into our area this morning. a couple of snow squals and that is the case today as wind pick up and we expect that to happen after sunrise, and so yes, some of these, streamers coming down from lake erie with the moisture and the cold air, it could give us a little
snow squall or two. other than that it looks like a very cold but dry day and it is probably cloudy, as we get to the new years eve celebrations around midnight but it should be dry as well, next chance of rain is not until machine morning when we are getting back to reality. it is 35 degrees in philadelphia. but feels like 20's all the way throughout the region. forty-one our high it will feel blustery all day long. sunny chilly tomorrow, high of 49 degrees on sunday in the bad at all for you this years day, rain, monday into tuesday , morning, milder temperatures for a while, and it gets cold again, on thursday. karen and mike. >> thanks, sue. >> what was your tweet. >> i'm in rare form. that is from teddy. kevin brings up a good point, kevin williams, why to we say new year's eve, there is no christmas's eve, why
