4:35 am
cameras, in the area, where the shooting took place. so, hopefully, these cameras recorded something that can help us with our investigation. >> reporter: that surveillance video may show what happened, hopefully some witnesses he mentioned will talk with police and know why all this happened and the real question here, dawn and kerry this morning is are these two killings in two separate spots in one hour in that within neighborhood related or is it just a very violent odd coincidence that you have two killings so close in time and distance from each other. >> we know you will figure it out, steve, thank you. philadelphia police make an arrest in the tavern burglary, this happened at sports irish pub in holmesberg. the place was closed when the thief used a crowbar to force open a door and pry open two cash registers. highway patrol officers recognized the man from the video and tonight authorities have a suspect michael carpino in hand. fire investigators looking for charred remains of the, main line mansion trying to figure out what sparked this
