5:00 pm
that will be steeply discounted, $300 instead of $600. but a cheaper generic version has been stuck in regulatory red tape. we asked why, and we learned mylan has fought a fierce war to stop a low-cost epi pen from hitting pharmacy shelves. >> and then i jab it in my legs for ten seconds. >> reporter: haleigh andrews and her mother have used an ep i pen several times for the young gymnast with food allergies. there are just seconds to act. >> we can't go without the epi pen. it's a matter of life and death. >> reporter: the company behind epi pen mylan now says it will make a generic version of the drug that's 50% cheaper. but the nbc 10 investigators uncovered documents that showed mylan and its production partners have fought for years to stop a cheaper version of the drug.
5:01 pm
this so-called citizens petition asked the fda not to approve the generic epi pen reportedly designed by israeli pharma company. in a study paid for by mylan, the generic product would have a failure rate of 93%. but the study had no control group. and participants did not actually manipulate the device or perform the injection. >> the study was just flawed from start to finish. >> reporter: diana zuckerman heads a nonprofit fda watchdog. she said studies like this waste health regulatorregulators' tim stall approval of generic products. michael carrier has studied more than a decade's worth of citizens' petitions and found nine out of ten come not from patients, but from brand name companies arguing that cheaper generics should be blocked. >> it's not about what a citizen petition is about, it's really
5:02 pm
about the brand company, delaying the generic form from entering the market. >> it's being used by industry, it should be called an industry competitors petition. we hope the fda would know better than to take it seriously. >> reporter: mylan sent us a statement saying the generic epi pen doesn't meet fda rules for generics. experts say the study is flawed, mylan told us it offered a valid examination of the product design and how the injector might be used in an emergency. by the way, carrier also blames teva for delays. in 2012, teva settled a lawsuit related to the epi pen. and that supplement reportedly agreed to delay production of their generic for at least three years. >> it does raise a whole bunch of questions as to whether or not teva entered as quickly as it could have.
5:03 pm
>> reporter: this family is hoping the new round of scrutiny will hope the floodgates of how life saving drugs are approved. >> i hope they can explain, and are held accountable. i hope that it stops. i hope the stall tactics stop. >> after taking nearly six months to review mylan's petition to block teva's generic, the fda denied mylan's challenge. at the same time, the fda has continued to withhold approval. the fda won't say why the generic is not ready for market. the agency said that information is confidential to teva. a spokeswoman for teva said they found major deficiencies with their design. the company did not address its previous settlement to delay production. jacqueline and keith? >> george spencer, thank you so much. a live look at cape may, where dangerous rip currents are causing problems in the water for beachgoers during the unofficial last week of summer. i can't believe i'm saying that
5:04 pm
already. last week of summer. further south, the calm before the storm in north carolina. a massive tropical depression is set to clip the outer banks. it's expected to bring winds up to 45 miles per hour. and of course, heavy rains. the question a lot of people around here are asking, what does this mean for us? >> let's send it over to sheena parveen with more. >> yeah, for us it means we're going to see an increase in our rip current threat. that's going to be right at the shore. now, that is mostly going to be tomorrow as well as later on today. but temperatures right now are still on the warm side. you can still enjoy today. look at the shore points, though. we have a pretty good onshore wind, 81 degrees stone harbor, 83 in avalon. the onshore wind giving some areas upper 70s like ventnor city 78 degrees. but with that tropical depression, staying offshore, it is going to increase our risk for rip currents along the shore and the delaware beaches. farther inland, we don't have to worry about even increasing wind speeds.
5:05 pm
we're going to stay dry, even by tonight, philadelphia 84 degrees. sunny still. by later on this evening, it will still be fairly warm, but still pretty comfortable. here's a look at the radar. we have a tropical depression in the gulf of mexico. the other one right off the coast of north carolina. not too large here. it will skim the outer banks and give us the higher risk for rip currents. along the jersey shore and the delaware beaches, rip current threat, it will be lasting through labor day weekend. we'll talk more about that, and what you can expect coming up. firing gunshots at another vehicle. heading toward atlantic city. >> new details, the new 911 calls following this deadly shootout on the a.c. expressway. we brought you the story yesterday. tonight five people are under arrest. nbc 10's jim rosenfield joins us live from the breaking news center. >> he has the details on the arrests plus more of the 911 calls. >> new jersey state police released a photo of a third vehicle that may have been involved in the gun fire, which
5:06 pm
sent those bullets flying along the busy highway in grod daylight. it's a dodge ram. it has a temporary delaware plate. there you see some damage to the fender. this is another vehicle involved. the ford expedition that finally stopped at an egg harbor township wawa. it was hit with some 21 bullets. three men and a 16-year-old boy inside the suv were wounded. troopers found 22-year-old roseman octavius of egg harbor township dead in the passenger seat of a nissan on the nearby garden state parkway. 911 calls described the chaos as it unfolded in broad daylight. >> total of five people have now been charged with weapons offenses, including four from the expedition, and also the

5:09 pm
it is a strategy similar to the one they're using in the philadelphia suburbs. on the ground in lancaster, volunteers and supporters await democratic vice presidential nominee tim kaine. >> i was very surprised when they said he was coming. >> reporter: kathleen said she thought maybe they would get a visit later in the campaign. but kaine's first solo swing through pennsylvania includes a stop in lancaster. do you think having him here means that the campaign might be able to make more inroads here, more of a traditionally conservative county? >> yes, i do. >> reporter: it comes three weeks to the day after mike pence stopped in the region. >> lancaster is typically more republican, i think. but with donald trump as the candidate, it definitely makes it a lot more interesting, and maybe some people are feeling different than they would in other years. >> reporter: laurie's been hosting phone banks at her home
5:10 pm
for the clinton-kaine ticket and she's encouraged by what she's seen. >> the turnout has been amazing. we did the same activities for the obama campaign back in 2008 and 2012. and we are seeing about three times as many people showing up at our phone banks and volunteering. >> reporter: she plans to keep working. they're not taking anything for granted. they'll work right up until election day. we have also learned that governor tom wolf will accompany senator tim kaine here to this event at the boys and girls club in lancaster. they also made a stop at a local store. senator kaine will be speaking in less than an hour. live in lancaster, i'm lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. >> lauren, thank you. staying in the keystone state, there's a new attorney general in pennsylvania. today the state senate unanimously confirmed bruce beemer as the new top cop. he was sworn in privately in governor wolf's officer. he said beemer had the skills to
