slurs, beyond, that we don't have any details of the actual attack or even where it happened. temple is asking anyone with information to call campus safety immediately. the school released a statement saying temple university unequivocally disparage or assault on any person based on religion, nationality, will not tolerate violence of any kfials reached out to leaders of the temple jewish and pro palestinian communities to discuss the incident and figure out how best to move forward. again, temple university says one of its students attacked yesterday anti-semetic comments were also made, this event is still under investigation, and anyone with information should call campus safety. mike, kerry? >> ironically it happened on the campus named temple. all right, thanks, jenny, 6:34, more breaking news out of north philadelphia. an ambulance was involved in a accident around 2:00 this morning, we had an ambulance involved in a accident yesterday morning, on our show, but this one just about four and a half hours ago at
tioga and broad streets. >> this happened right near that temple campus hospital, the driver of the car is in critical condition. the patient inside the ambulance suffered minor injuries, can you imagine, you're in a ambulance, and then you're injured again? >> yes, another ambulance, night of gun violence meanwhile in south philadelphia, two people are dead, that includes a teenager. >> steve keeley is live at police headquarters with more on this. what happened and how far apart were these? >> well, no ambulance necessary in either of these. they weren't that far apart. four blocks, 21st street and 25th street, talking about, two different neighborhoods, so little further west than the second one. but detective still working here, because they've got witnesses here, that's another rarity. witnesses in both cases, cooperating, and they had several 911 calls, and they both happened right at the end of the little league game, in fact, while some of phillies best young people were playing in williamsport, not much older and not much further from the taney field, shot and killed, one of the two newest
murder victims in philly within the same hour, in the same section, south philadelphia. >> a male wearing gray hooded sweatshirt and camouflage type shorts. he was last seen running south on 21st street, 1500 block, toward tasker street. we don't have a motive for the shooting at this time. there are some real time crime city police cameras, that were at an intersection, just several feet from where the shooting took place. so, hopefully, these cameras recorded something that can help us identify the shooter of this 16 year old male who ended up being killed from being shot. >> then, just less than an hour later, only four blocks over, on 25th, and few blocks west on man ton, in south philly, a rented 2014 jeep was parked, drivers window rolled down, and doors shut at the time. opened by police, to take the young man driver out into the
hospital, but he never had a chance, after rolling down his window to be executed up close. >> we found two spent shell casings, on the highway, right next to just feet from the driver door of the 2014 jeep where we found the victim. which is an indication that the shots were fired from point blank range into the jeep striking our victim in the head. >> right now that victim still known as a john doe. kerrey, mike, the shooting so up close, so personal, so defer state whg it came to impact, that that victim was originally a jane dough they thought it was a woman. >> really? >> the injuries to his face from being shot, what's a bullet does, that close, than was two fired, right into his face. >> oh, my god. all right, thanks, steve.
6:38. i was up late. >> i can tell. >> watching the taney dragons, and i was sweating during the whole game. i was so nervous. it didn't turn out well. they got smoked by last vegas? it is not over, though. they had a chance, still hope that they can make it to the u.s. championships on saturdayment last night's lost as you mon shopped eight to one. but it wasn't an elimination game. so playing chicago tonight f they do win that game, they're going to face nevada again on saturday's us championship game. so, there is a chance. philadelphia fans are actually pretty hopeful that this will happen. >> i really believe that tomorrow, when she sprays chicago, she'll win. >> of course she won't be pitching because it is not allowed. >> right. >> probably play at shortstop or third. >> right, right. >> well, i believe, okay, let's go for it, tonight's game starts at 7:30. >> 7:30, yes. >> on espn. okay. prime time.

thursday will be the chance of rain, and as we zoom in on doppler, we see there is a little bit of green showing up to the north and west of us, up toward the lehigh valley, berks county, whether that's all making it to the grounds, doubtful. not much going on, there but it is pretty humid. and we're looking at little league world series forecast, with thunderstorms, likely, again, whether they will happen exactly at 7:30, well it, didn't last night, but we could see it again tonight. 78 degrees, at game time, eagles forecast, for 78 degrees, and guess what? we have a chance every thunderstorms, tonight, maybe just some showers, but, it would be a good idea, if you're tailgating then going into the game, to have that
rain gear with you just in case, so, future cast has clouds around, throughout, say, late morning, then it is afternoon, that it gets a little unsettled. we get those pop up thunderstorms. 5:00 o'clock, 7:00, 8:00. some of them could be little loud. nothing necessarily severe. but now we see the action lasting perhaps into friday. not every minute raining, but that unsettled nature of the weather pattern, staying with us, even through early, early saturday morning. so, hopefully we'll recover by saturday afternoon, and sunday looks terrific. we'll show you in the seven day in just a moment. sixty-eight greets, right now, in allentown, in warminster, it is 63, 69 degrees, in the city, 63 in millville. and 64 degrees in atlantic city. we are looking at another day, with temperatures in the mid 80s, which is right where we're supposed to be this time of year, and pretty used to humid summers around here, snow isn't going to be
anything weird either. so we got unsettled weather today, tomorrow, maybe saturday morning. but the rest of the weekends looks pretty cool with temperatures in the 70s, for highs, both saturday, sunday, even monday, and we warm back into the mid 80s by tuesday, wednesday, of next week. so that's it. seven day forecast, at 6:44, time to go to traffic right now, and we check in at king of prussia, prince frederick street at cross field road. that accident earlier cleared up. and in ardsly, jenkintown road at garfield avenue, that accident has cleared up, as well. looks like smooth sailing just about everywhere else. kerry? >> sue, thank you. 6:44 right now. authorities in california are looking for the people in these photos. they say these selfies mysteriously appeared on a woman's cloud account couple of days after thieves broke into her home and took cash in the electronics. investigators aren't sure if they are the burglars, but they are considered persons of interest. >> bonnie and clyde. >> well, a delaware county man
is accused of confronting his neighbor with a gun, the reason, something he found on his girlfriends' facebook page, and also, on her instagram page. >> lorenzo arnold behind bars, incident happened monday after sean whose identity we have concealed, and lorenzo's girlfriends, exchanged instagram and facebook. sean says the suspect, who is also his neighbor, lured him into an alleyway behind their homes, so in a alley behind their homes, punched him in the face, pulled out loaded semiautomatic again. >> i didn't want to get him excited then he might, you know he is discharge his firearm. came as a shocker to be completely honest, i mean, like i said, we are cordial people. and our children play and stuff like that. >> so sean says the post had
got him in trouble were about cutting the grass. he is a landscaper and the couple hired him to maintain their front lawns on atlantic avenue. >> bizarre. delaware says your family should have access to your facebook account after you die. >> yes, new law makes delaware the first state, oh, get it, delaware is the first state. >> i get it. >> delaware now the first state it give families access to the digital assets of their deceased or incapacitated loved ones, under the law, emails, cloud storage, social media accounts, and more, are now deemed part of a person's estate. upon death. and they'll be treated the same as physical assets, documents, and records. how about that? >> there you go. hey, delaware county in delaware county there is a man accused of dressing as a ninja, a ninja, and he's pulling off a brutal attack on his former boss. >> with a hammer. police have arrested michael norly, jr., for the attack. they say he dressed up as a
