5:00 pm
here that there was extremely high speed involved. as you heard the investigator tell us, it appears as though this car was flying up the road when there was some traffic in front of it and it swerved on to the median strip and struck the utility pole. a horrible, horrible accident. again, two dead and one flown out to a hospital. we don't have the condition of the survivor at this time. reporting live in waldorf, scott broom, wusa9. >> it is just heart breaking. scott, thank you. there are a lot of unanswered questions after a deadly shooting in the middle of the day. it happened at 12:30 this afternoon on great oak drive in district heights. that's not too far from silver hill road and pennsylvania avenue. police have not told us anything about the man who died, who pulled the trigger or why this all happened. the victim it was found outside. there are murderers still out there and they're tied to gangs. fairfax county's police chief said this after confirming the human remains of
5:01 pm
have been discovered at homes run park. stephanie ramirez is live where the search continues. do we know who the remains belong to yet? >> reporter: our sources are giving us information but police are not yet willing to say who they believe the two remains found belong to. what they are telling us is this is part of a greater problem of gang resurgence in the region. >> it was well lit right in this area. >> reporter: the red tape may be gone but there's still an uneasy feeling for neighbors who are now learning human remains sat just beyond their backyards. police say investigators had to dig to get to the evidence. they discovered the remains last night inside holmes run park, the same park that saw two gruesome ms-13 murders in 2014. neighbors tell me this is a hard location to get to because there's a steep drop from the homes to this area. there's also a steep drop down to the path and water below. >> residents wouldn't notice. >> it's concerning.
5:02 pm
nobody would walk back here. so you could abandon someone for many years and no one would ever see them. >> reporter: fairfax county police started searching off a tip they said is gang related. took that one step further saying the remains found will most likely be connected to other gang-related murders in the region. prince william and fairfax counties have around 16 people in custody for two separate but connected ms 13 homicides. police are dealing with two missing teens who are believed to be affiliated with gangs and are believed to be in danger. concerned for their own kids. >> knowing that they found a body just behind the woods it's kind of crazy. >> this is getting out of control and we need to stop it. >> reporter: now the investigation may be finished on this side but police are not done. they're actually set up in the parking lot of the park lawn pool area, continuing their investigation there. they said there's a possibility there could be more
5:03 pm
public plea. he's asking for the community to come together. parents look into their kids to try to solve this gang issue. in fairfax county, stephanie ramirez, wusa9. >> seems like we're reporting on something new with gangs every day. thanks. many of the arrests in those other two ms 13-related homicides involved minors and very young adults. i.c.e. issued detainers against 6 of the 16 people in custody. a montgomery county school bus driver is accused of some heinous crimes tonight. police say salvador rodriguez had sexual contact with two 11- year-old girls while they were passengers on his bus. the north kensington man drove bus routes for three schools. police say he admitted to having inappropriate contact with the victims. president trump continues to defend attorney general jeff sessions over his contacts with russian officials during the campaign. the president is hitting back at a
5:04 pm
sessions to resign. now mr. trump is also calling for an immediate investigation into charles schumer and ties to russian president vladimir putin. the president tweeted this photo of schumer meeting putin in new york back in 2003 and he called the senator a total hypocrite. schumer said he would happily talk under oath about his meeting with putin and he challenged president trump to do the same. vice president mike pence is responding to reports he routinely used a private e-mail account to conduct state business while governor of indiana. that e-mail account was hacked last june. indiana law does not prohibit public officials from using private e-mail accounts and pence says he broke no laws. though he was an outspoken critic of hillary clinton's use, pence says his case is far different. >> no, there's no comparison whatsoever between hillary clinton's practice and having a
5:05 pm
classified information, destroying e-mails when they were requested by the congress and by officials. we have fully complied with all indiana's laws. >> the pence e-mails covered everything from homeland security to syrian refugees, including items that state government officials considered confidential. earlier this week it was nearly 80 degrees. this morning there was snow. not a whole lot of accumulation, but a lot of you saw a dusting on your cars and porches this morning. topper shutt woke up like this. he's out on the weather terrace. going to be a chilly weekend but no more snow. >> except for a couple of showers we're tracking as we speak. they'll roll through in the next 30 minutes or so. some just north of frederick and north of leesburg. also around winchester. everything is moving off to the south and east about 30, 35 miles an hour. good clip. this is about to cross over 15. if you drive between leesburg. you might see a little burst
5:06 pm
minutes. this is going to head down to the south. headed towards sterling. the real story is going to be the cold. temperatures right now are well below average. it's only 40 downtown. mainly in the 30s in the suburbs. these are straight temps. we'll factor in the winds. dress for the teens and 20s. we were spoiled earlier at the first of the month. 32 right now windchill in waldorf. 23 up in hagerstown. we'll talk about the weekend. lower temps on sunday. we'll tell you when the 60s return. >> thanks, topper. sad news to report out of montgomery county. a man has been found buried beneath the rubble of his own home after a fire burned it to the ground last night. this was the fiery scene around 10:15 when firefighters arrived flames were shooting through the roof. the windows and other parts of
5:07 pm
the home. juanita hayden lives across the street. she saw it all, including the parked cars in the driveway. she called 911. she was devastated and said all she could think about was her neighbor who was gone. >> tell me about your neighbor. >> very quiet. very nice man. never mess with anybody. he just live by himself here. >> investigators haven't identified the victim yet. as to how the fire started and where, that remains under investigation in montgomery county. so investigators say that man charged with phoning in threats to jewish institutions, well he did it to get back at his former girlfriend. missouriless say they want to talk to juan thompson about the desecration of a jewish cemetery. investigatorssay thompson even mentioned hiss former girlfriend's name when he phoned in those threats. he i
5:08 pm
similar threats in our area. vandals struck the only jewish cemetery in rochester, new york. now investigators don't necessarily think this is a case of anti-semitism. they say that's because the headstones were toppled and not defaced like similar cases across the country. andrew cuomo announced an investigation into the rise in these crimes and threats against jewish organizations in the state. a $1000 fine for speeding? dc considered doing that. >> now it has cut in half the proposed fine for going 25 miles an hour other the limit. -- over the limit. bruce leshan is live. the district is heading towards implementing new, expensive fines, bruce. >> reporter: that's right. there are some questions about whether even the stiffest fines will work. some critics say that the best way to get people to slow down and
5:09 pm
know they are guaranteed to get caught. like here in chevy chase. almost all drivers know that if you roll through the light or speed you are going to get a ticket. the city calls it vision zero. it wants to cut traffic deaths to zero by 2024. they have been headed in the opposite direction in the last few years. >> if you don't like the fine, don't break the law. >> reporter: the size of the fines has some people pushing back. now cut the proposed fine for going 25 miles an hour over the speed limit from $1000 to $500. but that still seems high. >> i can see why that's a probably. $500 seems a little overboard. >> reporter: in an effort to spread the pain and the blame, dc would also hit cyclists and pedestrian
5:10 pm
collide with pedestrians. $50 for riding with ear buds in. and for pedestrians who walk in front of a car with the right of way, a $100 fine. >> the message that gets heard loud and clear is this is about fines. and it shouldn't be. this should be about making streets safer for everyone. >> reporter: there was push back at a dc council hearing. even some supporters suggested some scandinavian countries might have the right idea. positive reinforcement. >> if you were within the speed limit periodicly they would say congratulations ewe won the lottery and they'd mail them essentially a $100 check. >> wow. >> reporter: that driver here, i had the light, i had the cross signal and that guy just about took a left right into me. here are other ideas that ddot is considering. a 15 mile-an-hour speed limit around playgrounds,
5:11 pm
senior centers. a 20 mile-an-hour speed limit in neighborhood slow zones. and if you overtake a car that is stopped for a pedestrian in a crosswalk or at an intersection, a $500 fine. live in chevy chase, bruce leshan, wusa9. >> they want people to take notice by the large fines. we'll see what happens. thanks. if you like or don't like what the city is considering, you have until the end of the day on monday to let dc know. that's when the public comment period ends. we're tracking metro. the next phase of metro's safe track surge starts tomorrow. you may want to rethink your monday commute plan. on weekdays there will be constant tracking. also there will be no yellow rush plus
5:12 pm
this phase runs through april 1st. we have all the details on our news app. here's a question tonight. how do you feel about teacher salaries in our area? are they paid not enough? too much? or just about right? >> we'll tell you about a protest over higher pay in a couple of minutes. we want you to cast your vote. or head to wusa9.com/vote and let us know what you think. chime in right now. >> look at those numbers already. this is one of our favorite stories. a guy who got into trouble when he was a kid is turning it around big time. >> your life is going to be challenging. the point is you still can overcome it. >> now this entrepreneur is opening up his

attorney general jeff sessions is recusing himself from investigating russia's role in the 2016 presidential elections. but some say that is just not enough. my favorite friday friend from face the nation is with us now, john dickerson. some people are going so far as to say that sessions lied in his confirmation hearings. he and the president were saying he could have given some better answers. do we think the scandal has legs? >> the people who were the most critical of attorney general sessions tend to be democrats. so if that's the extent of the criticism it's not going to have any legs. it was the fact that republicans were saying that the attorney general should recuse himself of investigations of the trump campaign that put him in the
5:46 pm
his recusal from the investigations. so if if there is going to be another turn in this story with respect to the attorney general it would have to be republicans putting pressure on him and on the president and arguing that whatever else happens is just too much. but right now since he's recused himself it looks like it's going back to the basically democrats being the harshest critics and the president and attorney general are not likely to change their behavior based on democratic critics. >> we don't see this going forward with perjury charges or anything like that? >> especially with democrats not in control of the senate, no no. i think this will move on. it's also not a perfectly clean case where the attorney general can claim he just had a mistaken memory. when you prove perjury, you have to prove intent. that's harder. >> found out this today. mike pence used a personal
5:47 pm
hillary clinton got raked over the coals for doing that. what's pence's argument? >> his argument is it was not illegal in indiana law to do that. illegal in indiana for a government official to use government e-mail for private correspondence. the coincidence here for a campaign that talked about hillary clinton's e-mails is an embarrassing one, but the order of magnitude is different. it not only was legal, it was not -- there is obviously a big debate about hillary clinton's use, but -- she set up her own private server. it was that that had the totality of all of her e-mails. mike pence as near as we can tell only had some e-mails on the private. the rules were different. so those are the two arguments
