4:02 pm
with the strong winds developing here on saturday. brutally cold temperatures all weekend long. the wind chills at time in the day on saturday will probably remain in the single digits. that is how cold it will get. we will look ahead to see if there are warmer days in the future coming up. michelle: we look forward to that. thank you. in d.c., mayor muriel bowser is proposing several shelters across the city. but it is one in particular in ward five that has residents nearby on 26th place second guessing repurposing an empty building there. it is part of the plan to close d.c. general. bureau chief sam ford explains the controversy surrounding the latest plan. sam? sam: michelle, across the city this evening, there will be eight meetings in'm of the city's eight wards for the pub -- meetings in each of the city's eight wards for the public to weigh in on the plan. the plan is housingf
4:03 pm
each ward except for ward two downtown where the shelter is for women. in the neighborhood, the reaction has been on both side. ward one the idea of turning a vacant lot in a shelter for 50 families. >> i think d.c. general is a disgrace. having folks placed in the neighborhood would be great. sam: in ward five, reaction to a family shelter put here in this warehouse district. >> i am not opposed to what the mayor is doing. i feel as though it is honorable and it needs to be done. ward five already has a homeless shelter. sam: the councilmember in that area mcduffy has not said he is opposed to any shelter in ward five but has not suggested another location other than this one. he does not want a shelter
4:04 pm
there. but anyway at 6:30, across the city in eight different locations there will be a meeting. mayor bowser is attending a meeting in ward six, southwest d.c. we'll have more on that at 6:00 and we'll hear the angezity that the -- the angezity that the residents have about having one in their ward. jonathan: police are investigating the first murder of 2016 in prince william's county. the body found in 800 block of barrett drive in manassas. there is no actual cause of death right now but they are investigating it as a murder. still, they have not identified the person they found or announced any suspects in the case. closing arguments now underway in the trial of a former traveling nurse accused of sexual assau
4:05 pm
assaulting a patient at the bowie health center in 2014. opening statements began today at the courthouse. verdict is expected before the end of the day. he sals accused of sexual assault at three different hospitals in the district. michelle: this evening there are still more questions than answers in the child porn case involving a former volunteer and an aide at sylvania woods elementary school in glenarden. school leaders and the parents are trying to figure out how this can happen. brad bell has been breaking news in this case. brad, everyone is just so perplexed by how it could happen on school grounds. brad: absolutely right. that is really the number one question. we expect a full house here tonight. in about two hours or so, hundreds of parents expected to brave the cold to come in here because even though the man at the heart of the case was arrested last saturday, tonight
4:06 pm
opportunity parents will have to speak directly to the top school and county officially. of course the man arrested last saturday 22-year-old deonte carraway worked here as a teacher's aide. first he was paid. his job was eliminated. then he came in as a volunteer. it is alleged he abused at least 11 young children, forcing them to act out explicit pornographic scenes that he recorded on his cell phone. as you said, so many parents wondering how it was he was allowed to be in here and how it was that he was not caught. allegations being made in lawsuit and through sources to me that the principal here was warned by parents and teachers that something was going on and did not act. tonight parents will hear directly from the school ceo. >> i am troubled by the allegations that are floating around. i want answers as much as everyone
4:07 pm
it. we will certainly be as transparent as possible. brad: well, that is what parents are asking for. they are asking for transparency. they are asking for answers. when we come back at 5:00, you will hear from some of the parents. you will hear their anger. in glenarden, brad bell, abc7 news. michelle: thank you. around the nation, city of cleveland is apologized and no longer charging the family of tamir rice for use of an ambulance. in 2014, a cleveland police officer shot and killed with a 12-year-old as he played with a toy gun. the city sent rice's mother the $5,000 invoice for the ambulance used to take rice to the hospital. jonathan: in the race for the white house, another definite. this time the democrats squaring off in milwaukee, wisconsin. the first opportunity now for hillary clinton and bernie sanders to go one on one since sanders' blow-out win in new hampshire. our political correspondent scott thuman is
4:08 pm
to shore up her support. if you look at the breakdown in new hampshire, she lost everything except for those over the age of 65. scott: yeah. that has to be a shocking revelation for them. it wasn't an unexpected loss in new hampshire but if you see the numbers it is a big dose of cold water on the clinton campaign trying to break down who to go after demographically. she has to chip away at that tonight and her constituents, that is one thing they are going to look at. and second, her scrutiny. early in the campaign she never mentioned sanders in campaign speeches and she glossed over, perhaps overlooked the ability to be a real contender. now will she go after him? not necessarily attack him but will she go after him in a way to put holes in the proposals that the clinton camp considers
4:09 pm
that is one way to do it. and the race-space. we are talking about demographics. what will they do to go after the african-american vote. in south carolina, hillary clinton is dominating. but bernie sanders is chipping away at the numbers recently. so she has to hold on to it or build on it. the next two states are south carolina and nevada voting on the democratic side. completely different than what we saw as a breakdown for iowa and new hampshire, which were very white states. will it be something they focus on tonight? we believe it will be. we will bring you analysis, coverage, reaction to all of that tonight. jonathan: a lot of undecided on that side of the fence. that is what they are fighting for. these two candidates for the most part have been civil. bernie was basically dismissing the e-mail controversy. all bets off, gloves coming off now? are they going to t
4:10 pm
hay-makers now? scott: i think so. i think there is a reason that they decided to be civil and relatively timid to each other early on. it gave them separation from the behavior on the g.o.p. side. but now when you start to see iowa was a virtual tie and hillary clinton losing by large margins in new hampshire, they have to. it doesn't mean they have to be nasty. she wants to avoid that. it's an image issue for clinton. she doesn't want to appear as someone a hardened washington insider willing to say anything and mud-sling. that is not the goal. but they definitely need to at least put pressure on bernie sanders. we'll see if they do that. jonathan: interesting to see. scott, good having you there. stay with abc7 and scott thuman. he will have much more leading up to the debate. coverage following it at abc7 news at 5:00, 6:00 and 11:00. coming up, gravitational waves. we'll explain the discovery to change how we look in th

4:15 pm
been telling you about that. diane cho has the information from the congressional hearing. diane: today on capitol hill, the national institute of allegeergy and infectious disease testified on the zika virus outbreak. >> many are concern it will make its way to the mainland when the warm weather returns. speaking for moms and grandmothers across the country this is deeply concerning to all of us. >> that concern is centered around pregnant women. health officials believe the zika virus could be connected to microcephaly, a rare neurological condition that causes babies to be born with abnormally small heads. >> the evidence that zika is causally related to microcephaly is getting stronger. it's not proven. but yesterday we published the zika virus genome in the brain tish --
4:16 pm
diane: they won't know more until time goes on. >> we have already seen cases so severe they resulted in early death. we have seen case resulting in blindness or deafness. diane: for those actively infected the tests are active. but the c.d.c. is saying all pregnant women to get tested whether they show the symptoms or not. >> the bigger challenge is to diagnose prior infection. the virus is similar genetically to other viruses. therefore people who have had yellow fever vaccine or even west nile virus may have a falsely positive test. diane: diane cho, abc7 news. michelle: if you have any questions about zika log on to wjla.com. we have all of our reporting online. and information on howi
