now. middle to upper 30s for many of us as we step outside right now. there is a bit of a breeze, 16 miles per hour sustained in boston, in fact, 20 miles per hour in wocester. so that does add a chill to the air. the real feel is 23 in wocester right now, lower 30s from boston back down to taunton. skies clear, though. we are in for plenty of sunshine today, a few scattered clouds in wocester county and then back through the berkshires. otherwise we will be in for sunshine from start to finish with a few clouds mixed in. morning rush hour, don't forget the shad, for some of us. sunrise at 6:55. the wind will stay active today and will gust occasionally to 25, perhaps 30 miles per hour, not a damaging wind, but definitely adding a slight chill to the air. 47 by lunchtime, topping out around 50 with a few clouds for your ride home. no weather-related issues. sunset at 4:12 and temperatures in the mid-40s. we have to talk about the weekend. i'll have the details straight ahead, breeanna. >> danielle, thank you. live look at 93 south here

5:03 am
video this morning. first there were reports of shots fired near ruggle street and then a short is distance away and a short time later at ruggle street there was a campus cruiser slammed into by a vehicle. you can see that there is front end damage of that vehicle and the rear damage of the cruiser. it's unclear if any of the occupants of that vehicle were taken into custody. there were reports that those occupants may have fled the vehicle following the crash. a police officer was in that cruiser. it's unclear if there are injuries there, but as you can see it does not appear to be terribly serious. and then another incident a short distance away on mcgrievey street. there were shots fired there as well. you can see not only shell casings, but also two vehicles with bullet holes completely covering and shattering those windows. again, police have not commented if these three

change. he'll be as determined as ever to get back and get better as soon as possible. >>reporter: dr. thomas gill, the former patriot's team doctor says that gronk's injury is to a disk that has already been repaired in the past, it would make recovery even more difficult. >> what happens is every time you take out a piece of a disk, the vertebrae gets closer and closer together. the closer the vertebrae get together, two things happen, one, it lets the nerves get pinched more, so you end up having leg pain, but so start rubbing and that causes a lot of back pain. >>reporter: meanwhile the pat's quarterback knows losing gronk won't be easy, but it's next man up. >> we have a lot of good players on our team that will need to fill the void and it's a big void left by such a spectacular player like gronk. >>reporter: brady says even without gronk the patriots won't give up on what they're trying to accomplish and that's take home another, a fifth super bowl championship. from foxborough, steve burton, wbz sports.

5:32 am
south as you approach the o'neill tunnel. 5:32 now. breaking overnight, a car slams into a campus police cruiser in boston. the officer was taken to the hospital to be checked out. a source tells wbz this crash happened shortly after police were called to investigate a report of shots fired near the ruggles "t" station. a short time later police found damaged vehicles on mcgrievey way. some appeared to have their windows shot out. police are trying to figure out if those scenes are connected. police investigating a shooting in dorchester, not far from a playground and a middle school. the shooting happened near devon and normandy streets. one person was taken to boston medical center. no word on their condition. checking our other top story this morning, rob gronkowski set to have back surgery today and he'll likely miss the rest of the season. multiple reports say gronk has a herniated disk. it's still unclear if he suffered the injury during the game against the seahawks or the jets. regardless, this will be
5:33 am
since 2009. we spoke with the former patriots team doctor who says the more times you have back surgery, the less chance you have to come back and play. >> the question is, though, what will the durability be coming back and he's a tough guy, but how much pain can you handle? he plays so hard. >> the patriots have played 22 games without rob gronkowski since he entered the league in 2010. and in those games the team has had some success mark. president-elect donald trump taking a little victory lap. his first stop carrier in indiana where he announced a deal to save over 1,000 jobs. but this morning our jon keller says the president-elect needs to look at the bigger picture. >>reporter: good morning. love him or hate him, you gotta admit, president-elect donald trump is a consue mat political show mawn. his victory lap at a carrier air conditioning plant in indiana yesterday after cutting a deal with its parent company
5:34 am
had been slated to move to mexico was great political theater, complete with grateful workers, happy union officials, back-slapping halls and the usual humble bows from the man himself. trump is sphar -- trump is far from the first politician to bask in the glow of a move like this. i swear i heard president obama and his supporters boast 100 times about how general motors is alive and bin laden is dead. and former incessantly about the 800 jobs the evergreen solar he kept from moving from marlboro to china with a $21 million bailout. by the way, they wound up moving to china anyway. patrick's failed bet wound up costing about $26,000 per job, while the carrier tax breaks amount to roughly $5,400 per job, so on one level trump's indiana celebration is warranted.
5:35 am
jobs certainly think so. but in the long run, there's less here than meets the eye. 1,300 carrier workers will still lose their jobs. the company is still swearing allegiance to the economic benefits of outsourcing jobs to foreign countries, and that's $7 million in tax breaks they're getting to ease the pain of keeping workers here. well, that's barely 4% of the golden parachute their former ceo walked off with a few years ago. yes, those 1,100 jobs are with us, so are globalization, automation and corporate greed. the incoming president still has his work cut out for him. talk back to me via e- mail@keller@wbztv.com or use twitter, keller at large. the white house and the pentagon are announcing support to require women to register for the military draft. under the law right now women can volunteer to serve in the military, but aren't required
