6:34 am
last night's protest was peaceful, prior to the shooting it has been a volatile climate down there. there has been violence. there have been several protests. and he says he's not surprise that thinks he is call ate dollars. >> i think we've been very fortunate, as we've moved forward, not to have similar incidents happen to us. but i've said all along we cannot sustain this forever without problems. that's not an indictment on everybody that's out there certainly expressing their first amendment rights, but when we have seen and in law enforce. that this is a very, very, very dangerous environment for the overs tears work in, regarding the amount of gunfire that we have experienced. chief says it does appear the person took aim at police officers specifically. police say they don't know who fired the gun. but the shooter was likely embedded in the crowd somewhere. and it appears that police, again, were targeted. the st. louis county police
6:35 am
chief is expected to hold another press conference later this morning. mike alex? >> okay, keep us posted on that. 6:34, another vigil for one every philadelphia's finest. anthony williams along with community members plan to pay homage to officer robert wilson the thirds. >> last night another one crowds gathered on the 5400 block of locust street, right outside the home of the fallen officer. family friends shared stories of the 30 year old cop, described as a family man, had two sons, even those who didn't know officer wilson personally came to pear their respects. to do what he did goes beyond our understanding. but it takes a brave man and very spiritual prayer full man. >> tonight's vigil for police officer robert wilson iii will be held at the basketball courts on 61st and baltimore?
6:36 am
west philadelphia, schedule to begin at 7:00 tonight. officer wilson shot and killed in a attempted robbery at lehigh avenue, the game stop there. that was boy, a week ago today. week ago this afternoon. >> now police are trying to determine if the accused killers of officer robert wilson iii also held up several stores in north philadelphia. >> boy, steve it seems like it is these two guys, you know, the same mo, and now have the robbery stopped now that they're in jail. >> reporter: well, when one of the guys, one of the brother the one that wasn't shot, was brought here a week ago tonight, he confessed to the killing, but would not confess to any other holdup saying he and his brother had not been robbing other retail stores. welshing obviously detective didn't believe him a single bit. now, they may have linked the brother to many unsolved armed robberies around town, since november. surveillance videos we've obtained from nine of the hold-ups so far show very similar things in it. two guys, two guns, hitting stores the same way the game
6:37 am
stop was hit. when he confessed to the game stop killing he said the reason they didn't see the police car out in the parking lot and officer damian stevenson in the car in the lot or officer wilson inside the game stop at the cash register before they pulled out their guns and announce ahold up because because they had their hoods up and heads down to avoid any potential witnesses from seeing them and recognizing them later on. also in one of the unsolved hold-ups besides the cash and cigarettes, they stole a 40 caliber glock gun, was taken that is the same make and same caliber as one of the two guns used to kill officer wilson. >> these guys, the one guy should have never been out. they are talking about body cameras on officer wilson. they should have probably put body camera on this guy when they let him out of jail. i mean, sign release promise not buy a gun. i mean, parole is parole. if you don't deserve to be on the street you shouldn't be on the street. and you know they're out there terrorizing central division, north central division, people, where good people live in the community and they
6:38 am
turn around and do this. and now unfortunately we're burying a cop at the expense of the parole board. >> there is even one more possible link between the brother, accused in officer wilson's killing, and more violent crimes. as we first reported on good day on friday, the morning after the police officer was killed detectives, with a search warrant found assault rifle, a ak47, a cop in the brother house hid never there. well, that kind of gun has been used in hold-ups, and shootings around philadelphia recently too so were they involved in those? that gun is being tested. while facing life without parole for a police officer killing, the question s. why would these guys not admit to the other crimes here, really have knock more to lose? that's because no one is offering them anything. no plea deal. no time cut. or even a extra pillow or blanket, or a not so mean bunk mate when they do that life without parole, if convicted so, they have no reason to suddenly find some human decency that police figure,
6:39 am
and that's why they're not talking much about these robberies right now. >> boy 6:38, attorney general kathleen kane is under pressure in pennsylvania supreme court case. she is accused of leaking confidential information to the philadelphia daily news, then lying to grand jury bye t fox 29 was there, as kane entered the courtroom in philadelphia city hall yesterday. the special prosecute nerve this case says kane didn't like the signings of his to and she broke the law. kane's attorney ago a judge had no authority to appoint the special prosecutor. >> i will tell you that i'm very cautiously hopeful about today, and i'm very grateful that the court took the time to listen to this important case for me and for pennsylvania. >> if the court rules the prosecutor should not have been appointed, kane's troubles would likely go away. but if the case goes forward the montgomery county d.a. will decide if kane will face criminal charges. >> well, the philadelphia district attorney plans to go back to school this morning. challenging student to be
