4:03 pm
municipal center. but now they are saying at his church but they are not saying which one. 22-year-old deonte carraway, as you said, he is a young man who was doing everything he could to work with children. he was in a school working as a volunteer, he was out doing a youth choir in glenarden. and now police are telling us two things. you mentioned the location. but also this. that there is another victim. a 14th victim named. that is the list now. 14 is where it stands of victims. we have told you several times it is likely to grow in the dozens. that is just how many police confirmed. they are telling us about the church but not being specific about which church it is. very simply because they want parents to be alerted that it is possible that they went to church with this guy. they could be victims, too. >> perhaps the name of a location might spark someone's memory. a
4:04 pm
dropped a child off at a particular location for example. brad: so with regard to particular locations, judge sylvania woods elementary school seems to be at the heart of this, where most victimization occurred. alleged victimization. when we come back at 5:00, for the first time you will hear from the attorney representing some of the very young victims. he has harsh words for the principal of the school, says she should have known this was going on. she should be held liable. in glenarden, brad bell, abc7 news. jonathan: thank you. some of you might have first found out about the story from a breaking news text alert. you can sign up for the text alert at one way to ensure you get updates on the big stories as they come in the newsroom. as soon as we get them, we text them to your phone. tonight we are learning more about the man now charged in the death of a montgomery county police officer. luis gustavo reluzco is charged with manslaughter by
