program. with matt o'donnell, tamala edwards, karen rogers and with matt o'donnell, tamala >> good morning it's 6:00 a.m. on this tuesday september 9th. >> a philadelphia woman is shot in the face during a violent struggle. we are learning more details about who police are looking for. >> police beef up patrols in efforts to find a prowler and peeping tom in delaware county. >> and lawmakers in philadelphia are on the verge of reducing the punishment for possessing small amounts of pot. >> and let's get a sense of what you can expect as you hit the roads. how should you get dressed, in your sweater today. let's go to karen and david. good morning. >> it's a little cool to start out right now. take a look at cloud cover on satellite. we have had some filling in although there are some holes in the clouds and i think some of us may actually see some sunshine as we get a little bit later into the morning. most of that rain, that did clip the coast yesterday is off the coast but we might see a bit more of that building back in later this afternoon.
coastal flood advisory. minor flooding for the most part. there's also the chance for some rip currents today because of that coastal low pushing in some water in off the ocean. so not a great day down the beach anyway but be careful if you do venture into the water. 69 degrees right now philadelphia. just 60 in allentown. low 70's down the shore and as we head out the door to catch that school bus between 7 o'clock and 8 o'clock looks like we're still be in the upper 60's. 67 by seven and 68 by 8:00 a.m. a bit of a bright breeze. as we roll through the day most of the day in the 70's. 70 by 9 o'clock your lie today at 3 o'clock, 77 degrees. mostly cloudy skies with some sunny breaks possible. karen, if we see any rain today it will be light and spotty so i'm not going overboard on the rain gear. we have a better chance of some showers though coming up in the accuweather 7-day, okay. >> all right dave. your morning commute is dry as you head out but we've got problems out there. the big first tractor-trailer fire. it was blocking all lanes of
the new jersey turnpike. this is as you head north near exit eight, watch for this. now we're getting the left lane squeezing by but that's it. so watch for some slowing on the new jersey turnpike northbound. i'd stick to the alternates here which are 130 or route one. that's on the turnpike up north near eight, exit eight right now so watch for that. looking at the big picture with speeds around the city looking pretty good on the schuylkill expressway. on i-95 maybe a touch slow i-95 southbound about 47 miles an hour near girard. things are looking a lot better on the blue route because that construction cleared. but here in darby we've got a problem, a gas main break that's new this morning, it's right on main street and ninth. avoid the area altogether. what you can do is stick to new walnut street or you can use summit as your alternate to avoid that. let's check the roads for you right now. looking live here on the boulevard, this is near ridge, that's your southbound traffic. not too bad just yet as you exit off for the schuylkill, matt. >> thanks karen. we're following several developing stories including the search for the plan who police say shot his girlfriend in the face. "action news" reporter erin o'hearn is tracking
information live at the big board. erin. >> matt a-very unsettling night. the three separate incidents have left three people in area hospitals with critical injuries and it is unclear if the woman involved in a domestic shooting will survive. around 10:00 p.m. police rushed to a home on the 900 block of south fifth street where they found the 32-year-old woman who lives there on the floor with a gun shot wound to the mouth and arm. police say there were signs of violent struggles took place before the shooting with tv's torn off walls and furniture overturned. investigators say six shell casings were found within inches of the woman's body which means she was likely shot at point blank range. investigators are currently looking for her live-in boyfriend. police are also utilizing the private and city surveillance cameras in the area hoping they can identify a suspect coming or leaving the residence. again, the victim is in very critical condition. police are not sure if she will survive her injuries. early this morning an
argument inside a chinese takeout restaurant escalated into a stabbing and a 38-year-old man was rushed in critical condition to an area hospital with wounds to his chest. this happened just past 1:30 a.m. on the 3600 block of north broad street in north philadelphia. the suspect is a male in his 20's wearing a t-shirt and jeans. he fled the scene but police are hoping that surveillance cameras in that area will help them in their investigation. finally in williamstown, new jersey, late last night a person was struck by a car and seriously injured along the 100 block of north black horse pike. details on this are a bit sketchy. the investigation is under way but police say the driver of the car did stop nearby. police tell "action news" this was not a hit and run but are actively investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident. of course, if you have any information on any of these cases, you are asked to call police immediately. matt. >> thank you, erin. police in delaware county
are ramping up the search for a peeping tom. several residents in the secane section of upper darby have reported a partially clothed man lurking and looking into the windows of the laurel manor apartments. police released this photograph of a man saying he is a person of interest in the case. neighbors can expect extra police patrols until the prowler caught. >> ray rice is out of a job after a disturbing video went viral. the video shows him knocking out his then fiancé janay palmer inside an elevator in atlantic city. the nfl extended rice's two game suspension to an indefinite suspension after that video went public. his team the baltimore ravens have cut the running back none other team can pick up rice. the nfl and the ravens claim they didn't see the video before yesterday though the revel says it was release d to police. rice and palmer are now married. katherine scott will have more on this story in the next half hour. >> new on "action news" a double shooting has shaken a quiet berks county block.
a gunman opened fire on two men in the 800 block of rose street in reading on sunday night. one man who was shot in the leg will be okay but the other man has been seriously injured. a neighbor who did not want her face on camera found one of the victims lying in front of her home. >> it was a guy laying right on the ground with blood coming down his face and it was just horrible. >> a stray bullet also shattered a man's glass door and went through his living room. fortunately no one inside that home was hurt. police say they are searching for multiple shooters. >> so, it's d-day for apple. what new gadgets or updates will they reveal today? maribel aber is live at the nasdaq in times square. she's got details. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, tam. after months of aunts paying the tech industry event of 2014 is here. apple's product launch day. nothing is confirmed yet but here is what industry insiders think we can expect. so, two iphone six smartphones larger more
scratch resistant screens. a smart watch and a mobile payment system that works on the new iphone. social goes retail. you can now make purchases via twitter. the company is introducing a buy button which will allow users to purchase items through tweets. this is the first step by twitter to enter the world of e commerce. it's a $300 billion industry. markets couldn't hold onto the green monday as the dow and s & p closed lower. finally tivo is developing the ultimate dvr. us a today reporting the new tivo mega will be able to record about 4,000 hours of high def content about 24 weeks of play back. tivo will inveil a prototype later this week and the estimated price tag for high end dvr is about $5,000. so, you can create your own binge watching, matt. >> all right. thank you maribel. see you tomorrow. philadelphia's on the verge of decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana. mayor michael nutter says he has worked out a deal with city council. the measure sponsored by
councilman jim kenny passed in june. the mayor has yet to act on it until now. the legislation would mean no arrests or jail time for people caught with 1 ounce of pot or less. instead, they would get a $25 fine. council says prosecuting small time users is not only expensive to taxpayers and clogs the legal system but it disproportionately targets african-americans. the mayor's compromise includes adding higher fines or community service for smoking marijuana in public. the law is expected to take effect on october 20th. >> we definitely feel like we are moving more and more into fall. cool out there this morning. >> yeah, it is a little cool and breezy, too, tam. storm tracker 6 live double scan shows us that we are dry, which is nice. looks like there might be a little bit of a sprinkle developing over cape may county and maybe up the coast by surf city but that's about it. as we take a look outside we have a fair amount of clouds overhead with some breaks in the clouds. it's going to be some of those mornings where some of you see mainly cloudy skies but others
manage to squeeze out some sunshine and i can see some of that breaking out in philadelphia. 69 degrees is your current temperature in the city, 69 down the pike in wilmington as well. just 60 in allentown. 62 in reading and trenton and low 70's in sea isle city and the boardwalk in atlantic city. future tracker 6 shows us how as we go through the morning and then in through the afternoon there is going to be some rain off the coast that every now and then will try and make it inland in the form of some drizzle or maybe a couple of spotty showers. this generally speaking isn't looking like a grateful rain but there is that chance of a shower at times. especially down the shore. some of this might work its way up into philadelphia. otherwise we're going for mostly cloudy skies with some sunny breaks at times. 75 degrees is your high up in allentown with clouds mixing with some sun. like yesterday, i think the farther north and west you go through the region the better chance you have of seeing more sun and hopefully we'll get some of that in philadelphia at times today as well. down the shore cloudy with rain and drizzle. 73 degrees by noon. 77 by 3 o'clock. remember, there is a rip
currents risk in the water today. not that it's a great beach day anyway but you want to be careful if you venture into the beach and of course there are no lifeguards. today is probably not a great day to hit the water for a number of reasons actually. lots of clouds a bit breezy in philadelphia, 77 degrees. we can't rule out some periods of sunshine as well. and maybe spotty drizzle or a shower passing but i'm not recommending rain gear for the kids 'cause i think it's very little. especially up in the i-95 corridor. 68 degrees by 8 o'clock. then we're in the 70's the rest of the way. 73 by 11 o'clock, 76 by 2 o'clock. your high of 77 around 3 o'clock and then still in the mid 70's by 5 o'clock. clouds mixing with some sun and a little breezy and coolish out there. 72 degrees for the first pitch for the phillies tonight against the pirates. 69 in the ninth inning. similar conditions to last night with a bit of a breeze blowing. your exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast shows some changes coming right around the corner. today we've got mainly cloudy skies with some sunny breaks. that spotty rain or drizzle around at times and a high of 77. but tomorrow clouds give way to sun and we wind up with a
nice afternoon and a warm high of 80 and then the humidity returns for thursday. warm and humid with a high of 86 and in the afternoon with a front coming in we could see some spotty showers and thunderstorms at times in the afternoon and evening. looks like that system's out of here quickly though and on friday it's less humid and a high of 77. pretty nice afternoon there. saturday 73 and afternoon shower can't be ruled out. doesn't necessarily look like a complete washout and we're hoping things dry out in time for that big union game against new york at ppl park saturday night. sunday looks dry. monday looks dry. >> gotcha'. thanks, david. next on "action news" more stories you didn't see last night including how a driver rammed his pickup into a sheriff's office. plus, the assault on law enforcement did not stop there. >> all hail girl power. we'll tell you about the new cab service in the big apple. karen. >> looking lifey here in the city, the vine street expressway near the schuylkill, traffic there maybe a touch slow as you head towards the schuylkill. not a big deal just yet. we'll have details on the latest with that tractor-trailer fire and a
cool degrees. >> all right, what's going on in montgomery county, karen? >> a new accident just coming in right now, it's in whitemarsh township so watch for it on joshua road at germantown pike just happening within the last couple minutes here so look for that one new this morning. also this tractor-trailer fire was blocking all lanes of the new jersey turnpike northbound. this is in hyattstown near exit eight. so now the latest is they're letting two lanes get by but you can see the area of yellow, even area of red up here so we're pretty jammed on the new jersey turnpike. kind of an unusual jam at this early hour so if you're headed up towards exit eight expect a big delay certainly from 195 to items -- hyattstown. particular to 130 or route one. your south jersey overview not bad. this is 55, 82 your about 47 miles an hour as you head towards 42 and 42 moving in the 50's for the most part. you know that's going to change in about an hour or so. enjoy your smoother ride right now. looking outside at 422, at
trooper, little slow at 23. watch for that one. looking at the temperatures, 69 degrees right now in philadelphia. we're dry but later today you might expect maybe a touch of rain or drizzle and that could impact you slightly for your evening commute. 77 degrees for your high today. so on the cool side, matt. >> okay, thanks karen. its ncaa lift ed sanctions against penn state two years ahead of schedule. several thousand people gatherd in state college last night to celebrate. the action will allow penn state's football row gm to qualify for a bowl game this season. the ncaa ended the sanctions saying the progress the school has made in reforming the athletic program in the wake of the jerry sandusky scandal has been impressive. >> the president of chile is calling the explosion near a subway station in country a terrorist attack. the blast ripped through a restaurant next to a subway station in santiago yesterday. at least 14 people were injured. no group has claimed responsibility for the blast. at least 29 bombs have been found across the city so far
this year and some of them haven't even gone off but none before yesterday's blast caused any injuries. a man is dead after a bizarre shooting incident at a cher vive's office in texas. deputies say the suspect rammed his pickup truck into the sheriff's office early yesterday morning. then they say he got out and opened fire. a deputy returned fire hitting the man. he was taken to the hospital where he died. investigators do not yet have a motive but they say the suspect does not have a criminal history. no officers were injured. >> 6:17 now. all new here on "action news" a-parole violation uncovers a man's devious collection on his computer. >> the nfl strict policy on marijuana could be going up in smoke. david. >> we are dressing the kids in long pants and t-shirts today. it's a little cool this morning. some of them might want a jacket particularring in the cooler northern suburbs but this afternoon getting up into the 70's. will there be rain? we'll have details coming up. >> and when david is not on the air, you can still access the accuweather forecast. get the hourly and seven day

seeing from cottman to girard kind of generally jammed. that's a new problem on i-95. i just got off the phone in police in bucks county, new falls road and penn valley road we've got an accident here, dave. >> all right, karen. we have mainly 60-degree temperatures across the region, upper 60's close to philadelphia. spending most of the day in the 70's, though. 70 by 9 o'clock, 74 by noon and a high of 77 degrees by 3 o'clock. by 6 o'clock, 73 degrees. mostly cloudy skies with some sunny breaks possible. i think it's another one of those days where the farther north you are through the region the better chance you have of seeing a little more sun. the closer you are to the coast more clouds and there's the chance of a spotty shower or some drizzle mainly this afternoon and that looks to be centered largely in south jersey. it doesn't look like necessarily a lot of rain but the closer are you to the coast the more you want to keep your eyes on that. guys. >> thank you, david. there's a new lung cancer test nd it looks like it could be a good way to assess people over 65 who have had a past or they continue to be a heavy smoker. screening tests do come with some trade-offs such as false
alarms that require invasive follow-up tests to rule out cancer. medicare's currently debating whether or not it wants the pay for these scans. a decision is expected by early november. >> happening today, the nfl players association will vote on a radically revised drug policy. the changes include the first ever testing for human growth hormone. hgh is at the center of baseball's steroid era. meanwhile the nfl and nfl pa are considering increasing the amount of marijuana a player is allowed in his system. cleveland browns wide receiver josh gordon has already been suspended for the season for a positive marijuana test. the proposed increase in the threshold, though, could lead to his reinstatement. the lions made sure the eagles are the only ones in there nfc east with a winning record. they crushed the giants in detroit on monday night football. calvin johnson aka mega tron had two touchdown catches in the 35 to 14 bin. the giants, redskins and cowboys all lost their openers.

now. and as we roll through the day, we stay in the 70's for most of the way. 70 by 9 o'clock, 74 by noon and a high of 77 by 3 o'clock. mostly cloudy skies although we can't rule out some occasional sunshine breaking through and again there is that chance of a shower especially down south. wants to get you to the airport real quick. we don't have any major delays reported but i will point out that some rain has started out in chicago so that would be an area to watch. karen when i step inside we have another round of possible showers and a thunderstorm later in the accuweather 7-day forecast. that's ahead. >> all right, dave, problems on the roads. we're looking live at i-95 at cottman avenue you expect a southbound jam, that's normal. the problem is northbound. can you see up here on the right-hand side of your screen we've got a disabled school bus. many of the kids just getting what, to school yet we have this school bus stuck on i-95 northbound past cottman blocking the right lane. police and penndot on the scene. you see the jam-up from allegheny to past cottman because of that disabled school bus.
we had live update on the air on our southbound delay which has grown a-27 minute ride from woodhaven to the vine. southbound right now slow. northbound you're jammed with this disabled school bus. it's not the only issue out there. whitemarsh township an accident joshua road and germantown pike. slow speeds on the schuylkill expressway, also looking at this about 29 miles an hour between the blue route and the curve we're hearing reports of an accident there as well so look for that in lower merion. a tractor-trailer fire that's been causing problems on the new jersey turnpike here but first falls township bucks county, new falls road and penn valley road we have an accident here as well so talk to police in bucks county, they say that one's minor. here's the tractor-trailer fire. so much happening out there. for awhile it was blocking all lanes of the turnpike in new jersey northbound near exit eight for hyattstown. now just the right lane is blocked so things are improving but you can see this area of red and yellow, it's an unexpected jam-up if you're headed northbound on the turnpike in new jersey, you might want to use 130 or route one as your alternate to avoid the delay near exit eight,
matt. >> thank you karen. we begin with an overnight update on the shooting investigation in north philadelphia. the 17-year-old victim has died. the shooting happened on the 2400 block of west huntingdon street shortly before 9 o'clock last night. police arrived to find the teenager with a gun shot wound to the chest. >> know that at least 19 shots were fired from a semi-automatic weapon. we know at least eight of the shots were fired from point blank range. >> he was rushed to the hospital where he later died. police do not have a suspect or a motive in this latest homicide. >> yesterday a viral video cost running back ray rice his job with the baltimore ravens and there are questions this morning about if the fallout will and should go further. the video shows rice deliver the blows that left his then fiancé now wife knocked out on an elevator floor. katherine scott is live in our satellite center much she's got the latest. good morning. >> good morning, tam. yesterday the nfl and the ravens said that they're just seeing the video now but there are a lot of questions this
morning as to why exactly that is. and just a warning for you viewers at home, the video you're about to see is graphic and violent. the video shows football star ray rice follow his then fiancé janay palmer into an elevator at revel in atlantic city. he punches her in the face. she lunges toward him and then he strikes her so hard she hits a railing, falls to the floor and is knocked out cold. when the elevator doors opened, he drags out her body. >> why did the video just surface with respect to the ravens seeing it for the first time? >> earlier this year video surfaced from the february incident of rice pulling her limp body from the elevator but not of the moments before. revel says they released the video to police. the atlantic city prosecutor's office will only say the case is settled. rice took a plea. no jail time, anger management and probation. the nfl had handed down a two game suspension. yesterday nfl commissioner
roger goodell says he never saw the video of the actual assault but did see the video of the unconscious woman being dragged out. the nfl has now suspended rice indefinitely. the ravens have terminated his contract. >> what did you think happened in that elevator before you saw the video? >> you know, i don't want to get into all that. i think the team responds just the way everybody responds, you know, to these things and again you're talking about somebody you know. >> this is a dark day for the national football league. this is a black eye for the national football league. this is a terrible pr nightmare. >> meanwhile many ravens fans have been sending a merse message herb she's pizza has been offering a free pizza to anyone who turned in a rice jersey. >> i was going to turn my jersey -- throw my jersey in a fire pit. we decide d to get a free pizza instead. >> reporter: the owner says the fans are making a statement to the team and the nfl. >> we were talking about the whole situation and we are kind of like, okay, you know, why don't we do this kind of

home depot says its investigation is now focused on the months since april. no evidence, though, indicates that debit card pins were stolen and online home depot customers don't appear to be victims as well. a software security expert says he's not shocked by this particular hack. >> the larger companies have a lot of data and are often targeted more often and more heavily. >> home depot says it will cover any fraudulent charges and offer free id protection to shoppers. home depot plans to have chip neighborhood checkout terminals at all its u.s. stores by the end of this year. they also apologized for not notifying customers about this hack attack sooner. >> i know you notice, you probably notice, too, some of them may not. >> what? >> fall starts in two weeks. >> it does. >> but it feels like it's here. >> yeah, it does. this morning especially. a little breezy out there. storm tracker 6 live double scan and you can see that there's not a whole lot of rain right now. there might be a little bit of drizzle down by the shore. as we take a look outside, we have basically cloudy skies over the coast. the camera wiggling a little
bit because of the wind that's kicked up overnight and now into this morning. we felt that breeze yesterday as well. temperature currently in philadelphia is 69 degrees. and the farther away you get from the shore the better chance you have of seeing a little bit of a sunny break later on this morning. dewpoints down below that 60-degree threshold for what we would consider humid air. winds out of the northeast at 12 miles per hour. so, yeah, a little bit breezy. satellite shows that you rain down to the south that almost looks like some of this might get close enough to clip some of the coast. a little bit later on this morning and perhaps into the afternoon. and at the at the same time there will be a bit of a sprinkle or a shower riding in above that main body of rain at times today. now, future tracker 6 really isn't playing up the idea of any major rain. it want to keep most of it down to the south but i will allow for some shower activity or a period of rain down the shore and there could be a couple sprinkles and showers making it into philadelphia at times today. otherwise it looks like mostly cloudy skies with perhaps some sunny breaks. it's another one of those days where the farther you are away
