5:01 am
all of the snow. we had a lot of snow yesterday. four is our number out of one to ten because of the challenges you will to have day weather-wise in the aftermath of yesterday's snowstorm. we are on record watch here in philadelphia. 10 degrees is the record from 1978. thirteen is as low as we have gotten so far but our wind chillies zero. keep that in mind. you don't have to be out very long shoveling snow before you start to feel the effects of frostbite. so pace yourself if you are going to go out once the sun comes up because it is really cold. 6:27 is our sunrise time. 27 degrees is all we will get even with all that sun. our normal high is 48 or 49 degrees. that is your daytime temperature. the tonight we will get down to ready, 12 degrees. so hopefully you will sleep through that 12 degrees because it is saturday bob kelly. >> we cannot wait until
5:02 am
saturday. >> can't wait until saturday. >> 5:01. getting out of the neighborhood will be the toughest part about your morning commute, and make sure you clear all of the snow off your car. clear the the snow off, get over that snow hump that was created by plow trains if even they came down side streets but with 14 degrees anything that was pack down last night is frozen over. you will go from the snow covered roadways, to a nice clean schuylkill expressway. but don't get that false sense of security because somewhere along the way i guarantee you, you will be in one of the lanes and you will hit a patch of snow maybe with a you mr. train pulled off on 202 and blue route and left a patch of snow, packed down and that could send the cars slipping. here's an example 309 toward the turnpike, left lane totally clean down to the pavement. the right lane though, still snow covered. it will take a couple days until we get everything
5:03 am
manicured and back to normal. north on the new jersey turnpike an accident at exit number six bridges have speed restrictions in play this morning. if you are intend to go travel in philadelphia a international, check with your airline and allow extra time throughout the day. >> real quickly, all philadelphia public schools and archdiocesean schools are closed to day. the lets get to our developing story. such sad news. >> it is. philadelphia police commissioner charles ramsey says the department is in shock and mourning after the officer was shot and killed. >> this happened at a north philadelphia video game store. steve keeley is now live outside philadelphia police headquarters with the very latest steve, good morning. >> reporter: if you didn't love officer robert wilson by what you heard already you will love him now. we have the story behind the story about why he was in that store. let's show you a picture of officer wilson. he is on the left. the his partner damon stevenson are on the right. here's why they were not together in the store. thirty year-old wilson didn't get killed being a good cop
5:04 am
but a great dad too. his fellow officers tell fox 29 news the reason why he was in that game stop store and his partner damon stevenson outside in the patrol car still was because while in a quick break while on duty they pull in the strip mall where connie mack stadium and phillies used to play. the officer wilson father of the nine year-old son and one year-old baby was going in to buy a new video game forgetting good grade in school. >> i think incidents like this put in context a lot of what has been discussed over the past few months. people lose sight of the dangers inherent in being a police officer, the kind of individual they come across on the street and they have to contend with, they have to deal with. sometimes as a result they are seriously injured or murdered as a result of trying to protect every single person in this city. in that community. >> reporter: two guys in custody one shot in the leg he will be okay. other guy in custody are
5:05 am
brothers coincidently in the city of brotherly love. older 130 year-old just paroled recently if that doesn't make you angry. the younger 125 years old also with a history of arrest but the older one a bad dude according to one cop, five prior that is they know of for sure and already confessing to, according to investigators, here at headquarters where they brought the one guy who was not shot immediately after. here is a strange coincidence officer wilson was one of the first people on call and at the the hospital when moses walker was killed in the 22nd district. soon after he got off-duty because they work the same shift. we got that from the the 22nd officer. officer walker the the last officer killed on duty, before him, well, one of his two killers, coincidently in court today to be sentenced to life without parole how is that. >> steve such a sad, sad story there with how he was going to buy a gift for his son doing well in school. it is not only child officer
5:06 am
wilson left behind. >> reporter: yeah, you have a nine year-old son and one year old. that was what you heard from commissioner ramsey last night. commissioner ramsey probably didn't hear this story. he was breaking up too. everybody you talk to breaks up. it is heart to even report that right now. >> officer robert wilson the third was dedicated to the department and his family as steve just said. >> lets talk more about the family with jennifer joyce. jennifer, what are you learning. >> reporter: we're live outside the between the second police district. we know it has been a tough 12 hours for the the between the second as well as the entire philadelphia police department and this city. you could see the flags flying at half staff as they mourn the loss of their fellow officer robert wilson the third. wilson was an eight year veteran of the force currently assigned to the between the second. the officer wilson's body has arrived at frances funeral home on wigbee avenue on cobbs creek. wilson was transported to
5:07 am
temple hospital where he would later succumb to his injuries. there was a major police presence to support their fallen brother. commissioner ramsey spoke about the officer last night. said he knew him personally. he was surely one of the best. he was well respected by his peers. wilson had two games a nine year-old boy, one year-old baby, who will learn their father died a philadelphia hero. >> officer wilson was an outstanding officer. he was a leader of his squad. he never took the opportunity to train younger officers. everything i asked of officer wilson and his partner they gladly took it upon the opportunity to serve the the citizens of the 22nd district. this is a sad day for the officers that i command in the 22nd district. it is a sad day for the philadelphia police department. it is a sad day for the the city of philadelphia i just hope we all say a prayer for officer wilson's family in mind thank you.
5:08 am
