fired a shot, and then apparently maybe even the man came out firing at police and police had no choice but to fire back. there are neighbors who posted on twitter, lots of gunfire. the here's one of the neighbors telling us what he saw and heard. >> i was watching laying in the living room and then i heard gunshots. i came out. all of the cops started pouring in. blocked everything off. i hung outside for about a half an hour and we heard another five gunshots and then right after the five gunshots, they just went off. it was maybe 12 to 15 shots in a row. >> reporter: so lauren, this is a back bay area in ventnor. this is before the avenue bridge for people that know ventnor a very popular area right across from tuesdayer's last stand, down here in the shore. so, a very busy investigation, still, and we don't even know
if any neighbors were forced out of their house who lived close enough but you can still see very yellow tape and lighting meaning that the investigation, still going on, overnight, despite, no sunlight. we will sianni hear anything anytime soon, don't expect, anything to come out before good day is over. these cases take a lot of up investigation as we see in philadelphia often, whenever police have to use their guns. >> absolutely steve keeley thank you for the update. 4:06. police issue a new leather as scary clown threat target area students and teachers this time burlington township says it is a school district mentioned in the latest disturbing post on social media officials are taking threat seriously adding extra officers on campus. all this comes as police say three teenagers are behind separate scary clown threats recently posted on line. >> invest faith asker say two are with washington township

reasons, as we will not see rain or as much fog as yesterday, we have a few visibility issues up in reading, maybe down in millville, reduced visibility there, but certainly not thicker fog that we saw yesterday, but a few showers up to our north, we could see a pop up, maybe this morning, not real likely, very light chance of that. things better at airport not as hazy as it was at this time but it is cooler, 60 degrees with 86 percent relative humidity. 7:01 is your sunrise time. other temperatures mostly in the 50's this morning, reading, lancaster, allentown, trenton is at 57, 55 in wilmington. 61 degrees dover, delaware and wildwood, new jersey. still some moisture in the air but we have brighter day with that high of 76 degrees, which was lovely to see. we will see some sunshine but we are thinking mostly cloudy skies and a high close to 07 degrees. cooler then it was yesterday.

is because all of the local authorities down here at the shore, including the atlantic county prosecutor's office, would not be in charge of investigating their own people because there were several police departments here, including the local swat team and you got egg harbor township police, atlantic county police and ventnor police and normally the end of the summer means a slow down for police work but not this year. what happened was a ventnor man we're told was causing a disturbance, a domestic call at first, there was others in the house, as soon as police arrived, gunfire, and, they had to take cover. then after the swat team got here lots more gunfire. maybe in exchange of a gunfire, when you talk to the neighbors here. here is one of the neighbors, telling us what he heard. >> i was watching tv laying in the living room next thing a couple of gunshots. i came out, that is when cops started to pour in, blocked everything off, and then hung outside for about a half an
hour and we heard another five gunshots and right after the five gunshots, they just went off, it was maybe 12 to 15 shots in a row. >> reporter: let's come out of that video and you can see armored swat vehicle in front of the house right here where it was when all this went down, and then to the left you can still see new jersey state police, crime scene investigation unit, trailer here as well. so, lot of construction lights, lauren. it looks like daylight in the middle of the night because they are immediately, trying to get this scene as fresh as possible but a ventnor man is killed, in a shoot-out with police and often people with guns don't have the guts to shoot themselves, and sometimes try to do a suicide by cop situation, that could be part of this investigation as well, and don't expect any answers anytime soon, it looks like they have a lot of investigating still to do and lauren we can tell you that
neighbors last night reported that a lot of windows were blown out and i just tweeted a picture big bullet blast through several windows on this corner house here in the ventnor heights section. we are far from the beach. we are back in the back bay area, on normally quiet suburbs, here at the shore it doesn't get noticed by people who go to the beach but this gets noticed a whole lot right now by investigators, lauren a lot of people awake there, thanks very much, steve. we have breaking news out of rome pope francis has made a surprise visit to the site of the devastating you go earthquake in central italy. vatican says pope arrived started his tour at a school, he lance to visit hardest hit area which remains largely closed due to security concerns. he indicated that he wanted to go alone, to be close to the people. more than 250 people were killed, during that massive earthquake. back here at home another creepy clown post pops up on line this time targeting schools this burlington township, new jersey.

traced two separate threats back to a 14 year-old boy and a 13 year-old girl. police are not identifying them and will only say they go to a washington township public school, for weeks now the nation has been talking about these creepy clowns, threats, and several social media posts have popped up including some in the delaware valley. they show clowns making threats against schools or other public buildings, in fact, philadelphia police say they have had a person of interest and local threats. >> we have been able to track down through investigative work and as well as tips from the public, we are able to more or less track down a 13 year-old that has been involved in some of the local posts out there on social media. at this point in time we are moving forward. >> i think it is a whole bunch of people that are looking for opportunities to do wrong things, i don't know. i don't know. >> reporter: we have learned this is a 13 year-old girl philadelphia police are talking about. investigators have not
released much information due to her age but case has moved on to the philadelphia district attorney's office. it is not clear what, if any charges, she will face and another challenge is getting information on a lot of these cases because many of the accused are still so young and police do not release a whole lot on that but cyber divisions of many departments have been very, busy looking into social media accounts and going after these cases, lauren. >> hillary clinton swings her campaign trail back to our area today. she will speak at haverford this have afternoon. she will discuss her economic agenda and plans for supporting families. joining her will be her daughter chelsea and actress elizabeth banks, who is a penn alumni. the event will be held at haverford community recreation and environmental center, starting at noon time. and lets turn to the showdown between vice-presidential candidates mike pence and tim kaine. it is first believed more people will tune in for this then last weeks presidential debate. 84 million people watched that
