6:02 pm
july. donald trump not only has to really win big, win almost all the delegates here in maryland and the other four states tomorrow, but then has to keep on winning almost all the delegates from this team now of kasich and cruz. live in rockville, steve handelsman. news 4. the cruz/kasich alliance could save both of them from elimination, but it's a gamble. there are ways it could backfire. chris lawrence has a closer look at the potential pitfalls coming up at 6:15. a young man dead. police trying to find out who killed him. neighbors say it is only one of several frightening events that have happened at the centerway park in montgomery village area recently. >> reporter: police say that that latest incident happened right here in this parking lot not far from where parents park their cars to bring their kids to that playground there, which
6:03 pm
they're determined to try and do what they can to make their community safer. it's a community park where kids usually come to play, but on sunday night just after 10:00 centerway park turned into the scene of a murder investigation, which continued into early monday morning. >> it's sad, and it's worrisome. >> reporter: montgomery county police say 18-year-old oscar benitez was brutally assaulted in this parking lot. >> investigators are still talking with those who were present at the time. some people transported him to the hospital. and there was also two other injured parties there at the scene as well. >> reporter: but so far police say they don't have a suspect in custody. meanwhile neighbors are concerned about violence in the area. though some folks say they will be doing more to try to keep their community safe. >> making sure that public officials are kept aware of
6:04 pm
residents are committed to keeping our community safe. >> reporter: now, police say they are investigating the possibility of this incident being gang related. they're asking anyone with information to contact the montgomery county police department. dore doreen? >> all right. thank you. for the second time in a matter of days, a d.c. student was robbed at knife point walking to school, but this time the student was stabbed. while parents were notified about today's case, they were not told about the previous one. the most recent attack happened this morning outside of wilson high school in northwest. that's where we find mark segraves with details on both crimes. mark? >> reporter: good evening, doreen. yes, today's stabbing took place on the backside of wilson high school in a neighborhood along nebraska avenue. last tuesday night it was a female student who was leaving school across this park by this tennis court where she was robbed at knife point. and after that first i
6:05 pm
e-mail with safety tips for parents and teachers, but she never told parents that a student had been held up at knife point. after today's stabbing outside of wilson high school, students were on edge. >> i do feel a little bit concerned for my safety now that people are being robbed a couple blocks from school. that's a concern to my safety. >> reporter: neighbors around the school are also worried about their safety. >> really surprised, but we have seen more robberies in this area in the past. there have been other stories about friends that we know that have people that have their guns pulled out on them. at the same time, still not surprised, but that is terrible. >> reporter: it was just after 9:00 this morning. a senior, who friends say is on the wilson crew team, was getting out of his car on his way to school when a man approached him with a knife. >> there was a brief exchange of words and what we think now is a robbery attempt. a struggle
6:06 pm
was stabbed in the leg. >> reporter: the suspect ran away through the neighborhood. the student was able to get to school where staff called police and paramedics. the school's principal sent an e-mail to parents alerting them of the stabbing. but after the robbery of an 111th grade female student last week, the principal did not send an e-mail to parents. even with the safety of northwest, we may still fall prey to an undesirable situation. we reached out to the chancellor of d.c. public school and the mayor's office to ask why parents were never alerted about the first incident here. they told us late this afternoon they're looking into that and they would get back to us. d.c. police tell us they did make an arrest in that first incident. one juvenile was arrested. he was charged with multiple robberies in this area. as for the suspect today, he is still at large. the victim is expected to recover. jim, back to you.
6:07 pm
there are new efforts to stop violence between students from two other d.c. high schools. beginning today the kids at dunbar and mckinley technology education campus, those students are being dismissed at different times. the students have been fighting at different metro stations when school lets out. now there's going to be a 20-minute gap between dismissal. police are having for your help in identifying some of the people in this video. you can see them knocking at least two victims to the ground. police say this was part of a robbery that happened early sunday morning on georgia avenue near howard university. so far nobody has been arrested yet. tonight, three navy families are staying in a hotel after a fire at joint base anacost anacostia-bolling. one building was destroyed by the flames

6:09 pm
electrified third rail. metro says there were no problems with power cables in this area, but there was a report of a loud bang and a flash. and that's what we heard from a rider who was on board. >> i turned around to see flashing lights, flames, reflections off the tunnel walls, and a loud noise and billowing smoke. >> reporter: chuck holmes was on the train. >> that's when people really started to get nervous. people tried to jump over seats. people were really scared. >> reporter: what we do know is that there was smoke and a lot of it between tinley town and friendship heights. for a lot of riders, this too familiar to the deadly episode last year. for 20 to 30 minutes, riders didn't get word about what was happening. no one was hurt. >> clearly for the people on the train, it's very stressful. i get it. >> reporter: metro says in some of these episodes more time is needed to figure h
6:10 pm
handle the situation. now it turns out there was actually two off-duty firefighters that were on board that train. they helped the customers who were riding along in that smoke-filled train, even helping some children out telling them to get down to the ground just like they learned in school. >> so easy to understand why people would be freaked out on a train with smoke happening. and this is not a new situation. you mentioned the lafont incident from last year. did they learn anything from that that helped them handle what happened this weekend? >> reporter: clearly communication was still a problem here. you heard that rider say it was 20 to 30 minutes before anything was happening, but what we did hear is there is a new fire liaison that responds to these incidents that is able to coordinate with people. that worked out perfectly this

6:12 pm
over the next couple of days. we've been in the 80s. we're going to move back into the 50s and 60s. kathleen matthews: in the race for congress, i don't believe that big money can buy votes -- not in our district. and i won't claim to have single handily passed just about every bill in annapolis. we can't settle for the same old politics, not when our basic rights are being threatened by trump and cruz. i'll stand up to their bigotry and be a passionate voice for maryland women and families. in tv and in business, i built relationships. as a woman in the house, i'll do the same to get things done. i'm kathleen mathews and i approve this message.
6:13 pm

6:14 pm
i'm chris van hollen. my entire public life i've worked to bring people together for the common good. sometimes that means taking on and beating powerful special interests... like big oil, the nra and wall street. and i've done that. but sometimes it means finding common ground to get things done for marylanders. that's especially important now-- when so many seek to divide us. we must ensure that every child can succeed and build an economy that works for everyone. i approve this message because together we can get more things done. right now, hundreds of people are sitting in protest at the north carolina state house in
6:15 pm
began their today, and the protesters want the state's so-called bathroom law to be repealed. not everyone wants to see that happen. >> reporter: in raleigh, north carolina, protesters greeted lawmakers with chance. >> it is a cynical attempt to pit supposedly christian values against our family's best interests and our morality. >> reporter: republican lawmakers passed the bill in a special session last month. it forces transgendered people to use bathrooms for the sex listed on their birth certificates and prevents cities from passing their own minority protection laws. >> this will continue and more entertainment leaders will boycott this state until hb2 has been repealed. >> reporter:
6:16 pm
the law. >> i believe that we will have more than democratic support for this bill if it was ever given a vote in committee or on the floor. >> reporter: groups which support the law also rallied at the capital on monday, urging lawmakers to stand strong against mounting pressure. >> for the right to privacy. i think it is very important that we hold on to our bathroom values. >> reporter: it is a debate being waged in north carolina and beyond. president obama is expected back at the white house within the hour. he's returning from a trip to saudi arabia, britain, and germa germany. the president announced 250 additional u.s. troops will be demployed to syria to help in te fight against isis. there are roughly 50 special ops forces on the ground there. they're working with local fighters in an effort to drive
6:17 pm
there. >> given the success, i've approved the deployment of up to 250 additional troops to help them. more about presidential politics now in the last-minute alliance between ted cruz and john kasich to keep donald trump from reaching that magical number of 1237 and delegates. on paper it makes sense, but chris lawrence joins us with three ways it could backfire. >> if cruz skips the primaries in oregon and new mexico, that will help kasich. it plays right into trump's argument that republican forces are conspireing against him. >> it shows such total weakness and it's pathetic. when two long
6:18 pm
politicians, establishment guys, have to collude or get together to defeat a guy that speaks what the people want. >> the alliance is a necessity. if trump wins indiana next week, it is game over for cruz and kasich. it's not a sure thing that kasich's voters in indiana are going to support cruz. a fox poll over the weekend released shows trump leading cruz by eight points and kasich by 25. over half of voters said cruz would be their second choice. but 22% said i would be trump. taking kasich out of the equation doesn't guarantee a win for cruz. kasich is still on the state ballot, even though he is decided not to actively campaign. some kasich supporters have already cast their ballot for him. another way it could backfire, indiana is not trump's only
6:19 pm
trump could get shut out of indiana, but still win a majority of delegates at a first ballot at a convention. then there's the human factor. top campaign strategists worked out this whole cruz/kasich alliance, not the candidates themselves. in fact, just today kasich was out there saying he's not telling anyone how to vote. so we asked you to weigh in on the alliance and most of you feel this is going to end up helping trump rather than hurting him. >> thank you. a major boost to major league supports. the mayor is still trying to lure washington's football teams back to d.c. >> rert
6:20 pm
land in southwest for nats ballpark. it is for the new d.c. united soccer stadium set to open in 2018. >> construction and permanent jobs, 1,000, because of this stadium. >> reporter: the new facility's costs are being shared with the team. bethesda residents have backed the team since it arrived in 1996. >> fantastic. we've been with the team ups and downs. thinking about the stadium and now it's a reality. we are so happy. >> reporter: north virginians are long-time fans too. >> season ticket holders. this new project is definitely a blessing. >> reporter: protesters worried about air pollution and funding for the poor

6:25 pm
>> it is just one step. our group doesn't get too high or low. we'll enjoy it, but we're ready already to focus on game one of round two. >> a lot of caps fans have been answering the call to grow a playoff beard for the team and the charity. we've been tracking their beardathon. we came upon the beard of the day. that's doug kammerer there. the caps say they have already raised about $20,000 for the usa warriors hockey program. we can take a closer look at his beard and the weather. i think your beard is collecting pollen right now. >> it collects a lot of stuff you don't want it to collect. >> we probably don't want to know too much about that. >> it's a great day. adam tuss is also doing it
6:26 pm
help us raise money. vance, you should have done it too. >> i'm working with you. >> looking good. as long as the caps are winning, we want that great beard. a beautiful afternoon. reston live camera looking really good. i was out there towards reston town center this weekend. had a good time out there. nice day to get some lunch. last couple of days have been great. we've been on the great side of things, but things are going to start going downhill. winds out of the south at about 6 miles per hour, 76. temperatures right now 77. frederick around gaithersburg, 81. everyone is on the warm side. no rain to talk about today. tomorrow night we could start to see some showers, maybe even some thunderstorms. today it was only some cloud cover that came on through, so a mix of sun and clouds. i hi

6:33 pm
>> reporter: the 2-year-old was struck and killed while a driver hit them while they were legally walking in a crosswalk. >> there was no rhyme or reason as to why he did not see us. >> reporter: after the investigation into the crash, the prince george's county state's attorney's office says the driver wasn't under the influence, wasn't texting, talking on his phone, speeding and stayed on the scene after. so it appears this deadly accident is a misdemeanor. >> if you are not texting, if you are not speeding, if you have not consumed alcohol prior to driving, it's okay to kill someone in a crosswalk. >> reporter: she is now working to get support for dynasty's bill, a proposal she's crafted to change maryland's pedestrian laws. >> once this crosswalk sign is pushed, all traffic regardless of direction being traveled
