right now at 11, take a look at this video. two metro employees being called heros after seeing an armed man on a train and taking safety into their own hands. >> tonight two metro employees are getting big kudos from their bosses by working together to stop violence on a busy train. >> reporter: this happened saturday afternoon.
a fight broke out. neither of these employees are police officers, but they both stepped in and in the process made a frightening discovery. she wasn't expecting to come across a man armed with a gun. before the station manager made it to her final stop, she and a co-worker came face to face with a man police say committed a felony moments before. >> our suspect committed an armed robbery at the metro station, the platform. >> reporter: the gun he used was in his left pocket. he can be seen arguing with someone on the platform. the argument escalates as soon as the doors close. >> two other guys came behind us, got the guy in a choke hold, and said we have to get that up off you. >> reporter: they stepped in thinking they were robbing tibbs. two of the guys left the train.
tibbs was still there. >> we were talking to him to find out what he had. he said he had a cell phone a couple of times, then he admitted he did have a gun. >> reporter: her co-worker touched his pocket and felt the gun. you can see that employee on top of tibbs. her co-worker moved the gun away and pinned tibbs to the floor. >> he was trying to get away. we figured we better hold on to him. we didn't know what would happen if he got ahold of it. >> reporter: they arrested tibbs as soon as the train made it to chinatown. this type of encounter is rare and their employees went well beyond what is expected. >> their actions were heroic and may have saved lives. >> reporter: transit police say the initial two men are and don't know what they were fighting about. they do not consider those men to be suspects or victims of the robbery that allegedly took
place just before tibbs hopped on that train. >> thank you. transit police say tibbs was involved in two robberies before he stepped on the train. in january he pled guilty to one count of robbery and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm. here's video you'll see only on 9. dramatic, up close video as d.c. firefighters go into a chinatown high-rise to get people out after a fire in one of the apartments. you can see the crews going in as smoke pours out of the 7th floor windows. you can see this woman being brought out on a stretcher. the woman was taken to the hospital, but we're told her injuries are not life threatening. it took about a half hour to put out the fire. traffic back to normal. all lanes open. police on the scene after crews found a car upside down and
partially underwater. >> marcus leaferyman was pronounced dead there. he had been reported missing earlier this month. we are live near the scene in laurel. do we know when this accident happened? >> reporter: that's one of the few unanswered questions police are still investigating at the moment. this is the ramp right here, this ramp merges on to the bw parkway. it was along this ramp where that vehicle was pulled up this afternoon from an enbankment down below. it's not unclear when it happened but how it happened. how did this happen? did anyone see it happen? this overturned car along the baltimore, washington parkway was found partially submerged in water. it was beyond the view of traffic traveling on the nearby parkway. it wasn't until landscapers clearing trees off the parkway spotted the vehicle that first responders could finally pull the car out.
>> they were able to break into the car to determine if there was anyone in distress in the vehicle. >> reporter: inside they found freeman of laurel dead. it's still unclear how he died -- from the crash, if he drowned, or from something else. investigators hope to answer that when they determine how and when the car flipped off the road. we do know that freeman was reported missing on october 15th, nearly two weeks ago. live just outside of laurel for wusa 9. we have been tracking rain. >> right now we have a yellow weather alert set for wednesday. there is a chance we could see showers before that? >> maybe even as early as tomorrow evening. we'll have leftover into wednesday. a yellow weather alert for wednesday. prepare for a slow commute on wednesday. let's talk about futurecast. we have showers south and west

trooper. a large knife was found on the man. that man, who is black, has not been identified. the trooper who shot him is white, but race has not been raised as a factor in this shooting. in the district, police shot and killed a man they say was trying to rob a liquor store and shot fire their way. police chief says the officers didn't even have a chance to get out of their cars before the suspect opened fire. a second robbery suspect was taken into custody just a few blocks away. in prince georges county tonight, another sad reminder of the county's shortage of support for domestic violence victims. 35-year-old tonya sullivan was killed by her husband who then turned the gun on himself. the county has more domestic violence incidents than any other county in maryland. there's only one shelter

overtaking trump in iowa. a poll out today had carson up by 12 among likely caucus goers. while trump still leads nationally, he spent the weekend needling his new rival's politics. >> i don't think he'll negotiate well. i'm presbyterian. that's down the middle of the road, folks, in all fairness. i mean 7th day adventists i don't know about. >> he went ballistic when he thought i was questioning his faith. it seems interesting he'd be doing that. >> reporter: forced to cut staff and expenses as his poll numbers sink, he sounded melancholy. >> i have a lot of cool things i could be doing rather than
sitting around listening to people demonize me. >> reporter: former president george w. bush addressed about 175 top donors trying to rally them. he said his brother would remain in the race as a fierce competitor for the office. he thinks voters will come around. reporting live for wusa 9. >> thank you. on the democratic side, hillary clinton celebrated her 68th birthday today. tomorrow she will appear on steven colbert's late show. bernie sanders will be back in our area wednesday holding a town hall meeting with students at george mason university. to a strange story. a naval academy mid shipman in serious trouble after waking up drunk in a strange woman's home. the 74-year-old annapolis woman called police when she found max smith sleeping on a chair in her living room.

performance, but they must do a better job of taking the pressure off his shoulders. >> the objective of this offense is to get the ball in the quarterback's hands and let the play makers make the plays. i think he has the ability to throw as many times as he wants to, but we want to make sure everybody gets involved with the running game. >> it was a somber day around the verizon center with the news of the passing of saunders. he was the first head coach of john wall's pro career. wednesday the wizards open their season against orlando. he said saunders will be on his mind as he looks to guide his team to a victory. while the offense is clicking, it's a matter of keeping up the pace on defense. >> we're going make shots. we're going to push the pace,
