11:02 pm
walking down the street and heard really loud noise and immediately i went, uhhh.. that's not the sound the bellagio fountains make. sounded like a large caliber handgun." )) ((vanessa murphy)) heard the shots from across the street started looking around to see if people were running almost immediately, multiple police on scene knew it was a gunshot and something was going on. thought at first it could possibly have been bourne movie, but police were there so fast, knew it was real. ((vanessa murphy))
11:03 pm
((dave courvoisier)) > social ((dave courvoisier)) > social media is blowing up with video and pictures from the scene... we've been tweeting out information at 8 news now... look for the hashtag "strip shooting"./// ((denise valdez)) > tonight, the mid-atlantic east coast is dealing with what's shaping up to be a historic blizzard. ((dave courvoisier)) the massive storm could dump as much as three feet of snow on the nation's capital. falling at a rate of two to three inches an hour. ((denise valdez)) the storm has already been blamed for multiple deaths... and drivers are being told to stay off the roads. and this storm is far from over... tedd florendo is here with the latest on this storm's power./// ((tedd florendo)) >in some areas the storm just starting picking up steam. the storm will not be over in just one night either.
11:04 pm
posibsy some coastal flooding as well. ((tedd florendo)) >there are still numerous weather alerts from tenness all the way up to connecticut. winter storm warnings stretch from tennessee all the way up to pennsylvania. ............................... ........... but it's the nations capital that could get hit the hardest with blizzard warnings now in effect from there all the way now up to philly to new jersey. there are also coastal flood warnings, because this storm offshore could bring a storm surge with strong winds and high tide combining for flooding through the jersey shore and delaware beaches and delmarva. ............................... ................ it's size is big. with the heaviest snow now coming down in virginia and and now into d-c. areas of ice can be seen in north carolina and southern virginia. this storm is going to cause all sorts of problems for the east coast paul and denise.
11:05 pm
tied to el nino in any way? qe ((denise valdez)) thousands of flights have been canceled in d-c... new york... and several other east coast cities. ((dave courvoisier)) and because of that... can't get home tonight. we counted at least a dozen flights that were canceled out of mccarran because there's simply no safe way for planes to land in this weather. mccarran officials told us they expect the impact to extend into next week. complicating thing further... this is a major convention weekend with five sizeable shows
11:06 pm
200-thousand passengers expected to be trying to leave. one stranded passenger we spoke to said he stll has to get home, so he's taking matters into his own hands: (( jesse patterson/strande d passenger: "i'm going to cleveland, ohio, and then i'm renting a car, and i think it's about a 10 hour drive, so the flight's about 5, so about 15 hours ( ((dave courvoisier)) the airport says to check your flight status before you head to mccarran. many airlines are trying to work with passengers to waive change fees./// ((denise valdez)) > excitement is building for the upcoming super bowl. football fans will find out this weekend which two teams will battle for the world championship.

((denise valdez)) george knapp reports on the contract dispute
11:07 pm
here's some real-life daytime drama for you. things are about to get a lot less bold and considerably less beautiful for cox cable customers. after january 29th, cox customers will be blocked from watching their favorite programs on channel 8. the price won't be right in the mornings. and in the evenings, say goodbye to alex trebek's jeopardy brain twisters or vanna white's stylish letter- turns on wheel of fortune the most popular prime time programs on the nation's most watched network will vanish when klas is taken off the menu...the big bang nerds...the sleuths of ncis...and tom sellecks iconic 'stash. klas g.m. lisa howfield does not want to be on the air talking about this. lisa howfield/ klas general manager: i'm doing this because i don't want viewers to go to their tv and turn it on next saturday morning or late friday night and
11:08 pm
but, she says, it looks like that's where things are headed. it means nevada's most watched local news station, 8 news now, would be gone. this sunday's 60 minutes will be the last for cox subscribers....a nd if no agreement can be reached soon, the biggest television event of the year...super bowl 50..will not be carried by cox, which is the service provider for about half of all viewers in southern nevada. cox customers would have to make other arrangements..s witch to another provider or try your luck with rabbit ears. lisa: if you are a cox customer and don't make arrangements, there's a very good chance you will not be able to see super bowl 50. like other cable systems, cox pays fees to rebroadcast original content. the biggest chunk of your monthly cable bill goes to pay for espn...8 bucks a month per customer....t.n.t gets 1.65 per customer. local providers, including klas and the other network affiliates, get a tiny fraction
11:09 pm
stations are the biggest draw for cable systems. howfield says, after 5 months of intense negotiations, cox is unwilling to pay a fraction of what channel 8's programming generates for the cable company. lisa: it's crazy. broadcasters bring about 35% of the audiences to any given cable system around the country and we get around 12% of those retransmission revenues. ... that.... howfield says cox stormed out of the last negotiation session and is unwilling to budge, even though the other local providers...incl uding satellite companies..alre ady agreed to a deal. cox declined to appear on camera but in a statement the company said it is willing to pay more but thinks that the demands made by nexstar, the parent company for klas, are "unreasonable". howfield is asking that klas
11:10 pm
them to settle this lisa: we're really upset at this point. we don't want our viewers to have to go through this but we're really at the point where we need people to rally around us and help us out on this. george knapp 8 news now > ((denise valdez)) on our website, we have posted information about how you can reach out to cox either by phone or social media. you can also read a full statement from klas and comments sent by cox communication s. again, the deadline is january 29th. after that cox will no longer carry any channel 8 programming including this newscast./// ((dave courvoisier)) > traffic remains shut down on the las vegas strip right now... but metro is now telling us that could change soon. mauricio marin has a live report one when the roads could be opening up again... right after this short break.///

and lets start with the runnin' rebels tonight... they're heading to reno as 5 1/2 point favorites over the wolf pack. it's a credit to this group, losing a coach, then rallying to win 3 in a row. the makeup has changed... and maybe that's just what this team needed. same faces, maybe louder voices in the huddle... stacey augmon, who's normally ththquiet teacher, seems to be a little more vocal. todd simon/unlv interim head coach: 'staff has been tremendous, getting players going. rehashing what our plan is, stacey is a passionate firey coach he's gone a tremendous job with these guys... the talk and the fire sometimes have to come from coaches." the rebels have scored 80 or
