6:05 am
seats inside the car but police don't believe the murder actually happened here. they think the guy was killed someplace else and the car and body were dumped at this aparna complex. they believe the guy was probably killed on saturday because they said the body was already starting to decompose. as for the suspects at this point we don't have a clear description so still a lot of work for investigators. live in phoenix, justin pazera abc15. it's five minutes after six we are getting the best description yet of what the phoenix serial street shooter might be driving. >> the survivor of this latest attack is breaking his silence talking about what happened on july 11 at 30th street and sheridan near oak. police say the shooter pulled out a gun and started firing near the car at this intersection. >> i was like oh, that's strange why are you looking at me that way and that's when he pulled out the gun and started firing at me. he wasn't wearing a mask or glasses. or a hat. he didn't care. he didn't care if i saw him.

6:11 am
and again those dark clouds as the storms continue to move off to the northeast. wet roads behind the storms but not a lot of new storms firing up just behind that initial batch and you can see much of the rain moving to the northeast and things look much quieter across phoenix so just a slight chance of a few spotty showers but much of this moving into the higher terrain across our state from sedona over to payson up towards winslow as the activity starts to so as you look at your most accurate hour by hour planner are storm chances are slowly tapering off by 9 am just a 10% chance of a stray shower or storm and then mostly clear skies midday. in the evening just an isolated threat of a storm, but the best potential overall was this morning from here and those storm chances -- from here those storm chances start to trend down. i will show you the 7-day forecast in just a few minutes, valerie. an update to the crash on loop 202 right near elliott. adot tweeting that this is

6:20 am
across the northeast things are much quieter and clouds are starting to break up. you can see that from the phoenix hospital valley cam. more sunshine across the west and south valley as we begin the process of trying out after the storms. so storm chances will gradually trend down from here. clearing out the storm chances by lunchtime. this afternoon, just a 10% chance of another phoenix metro although the bulk of the action will be across the higher terrain. temperature-wise we've had rain cooled air so you will step outside to some pictures in the 70s -- to temperatures in the 70s. it will feel pretty comfortable out there and it will be a gradual warm-up up to 93 by noon before the high
6:21 am

6:33 am
more weather and traffic from your neighborhood in just moments but right now first on abc15 mornings, phoenix police officers are trying to piece together a murder mystery. some people reaching out to us this morning when they saw our camera crews on the scene after we learned a body appears to have been dumped at a phoenix apartment complex. this unfolding near peyton -- near tatum and bell. justin, what is the latest? >> hey chris. we can tell you that investigators have a lot of work to do on this one because they don't have a suspect at this point scene for you. it happened right at that carport over there. it was folks living in this apartment complex that said something is not right with that car so they called police. inside the car was a man's body . detectives are telling us they don't believe the man was actually killed here. they can -- they think he was killed someplace else probably on saturday just because of the condition of the body. there were obvious signs of trauma and this is very suspicious. they have towed the car away
6:34 am
hours, but again no description of a suspect. so folks here just really vigilant are the ones who called the scene. if we get a suspect description we will pass that along as soon as we get it. live in north phoenix justin pazera abc15. it's judgment day for a -- woman who ran down her boyfriend with her car. back in may misty wilke told and she was distraught, trying to get away as she -- he had just dropped a bombshell admission and was talking her and then that happened. she says he cut her with a knife but new court documents reveal that witnesses heard her threatened to kill her boyfriend with her car. wilke cut a plea deal and will be sentenced today. happening while you were sleeping, a very large response and unfortunately a family dog died in an apartment fire early

6:39 am
not too bad. iris early this morning the storms went right across that area. you are pinpointing it. yes they sure did moving in from the west valley to peoria. from glendale to tollefson we saw heavy rain through central phoenix and eventually into the northeast and east valley but right now things are really winding down and you can see that on abc15 desert poplar as off toward the higher terrain. lingering sprinkles in the northeast pocket of the county and showers over the superstitions but spots like apache junction are starting to dry out, gilbert -- and central phoenix drying out after the set -- after the storms rolled through overnight. this is moving upwards when slow in spots like -- an area northwest of show low.
6:40 am
northwest arizona and as we go through the day today we've got more chances for storms across the higher terrain in our state . so as you look at futurecast here with me, these showers from this morning gradually winding down through the next couple of hours but just as those are winding down by 1:00 this afternoon, more storms are developing across the higher terrain. meanwhile the valley will continue to clear out this morning but as we head into midafternoon we will have to watc southeast along the rim. they could come close to the valley so i'm keeping a 10% chance for a stray shower or storm as we go through the evening although it is likely that most of us will stay quiet here as we go through much of the day. you will notice much of the hour by hour rain chance planner and begin the storm chances trending down, quieter mid-day and just a slight chance this evening. we will talk about temperatures in just a few minutes, mallory. i-17 -- super slow near
6:41 am
maybe a lane is blocked just south of thomas. take a look. it is just building on the i-10 stack. this is just a little slow once you get south of the durango curve. this low a spot this morning will be the 10 with rain earlier, a crash from earlier so a 32 minute desert drivetime i-10 eastbound from loop 101 to the 17. a new crash will add to the delays so i will keep a close eye and let you know if it gets worse than that. in a couple minutes i will give you a look -- from loop 202 southbound near elliott. that's in just a few minutes. don't forget abc15 is giving away tickets to the cards-broncos game on september 1. just download the abc15 app and look for the contest entry for your chance to win.

are considering making a requirement to learn this by the end of third grade. the decisions made by the district -- is made by the district but it could become state law and if so it could become the first state to have foundational writing standards. early-morning thunderstorms and this is now our view over the phoenix metro. what a difference right? those storm chances trending down and we're seeing more of the clearing skies as we look live with our cameras here early this morning. if you look at desert doppler the rain is really shifting off to the northeast over some of the higher terrain while the valley begins the process of drying out here this morning. the good news is despite the rain -- i know it's created a bit of a mess around the valley but it's helped cool temperatures down quite a bit. cave creek is coming in at 69 degrees and we are sitting at
6:50 am
and the west valley, goodyear checking in right at 70 degrees so a very nice start to the day. we will make it into the 90s again by 11 am and this afternoon the high is right at 100 and we could hit that rate between three and 5:00. just a slight chance of a stray storm as we go into the phoenix metro but otherwise plan on temperatures in the upper 90s to low 100s across the vall but we start to warm up a bit across the valley and i will show you that in a few minutes. driver's ed in the east valley, sounds like the drivers -- silanes have reopened. you will still see restrictions but speeds are already looking so much better in the area. the rest of the east valley isn't doing too bad. this is westbound from the 202
