delaware's going to be holding a special election at the end of february. this is ultimately going to decide the balance of power in delaware state senate. the tenth district seat was vacated last week by democrat bethany hall long because she was sworn in as lieutenant governor. democrat stephanie hanson, republican joe marino, vying for her seat f marino wins republicans will control delaware state senate for the first time in more than 40 years. developing right now, police are investigating the shooting death after man in feltonville. and what makes this crime even more despicable, police say, as the man was dying on the grounds, instead of helping him, people tried to rob him. steve keeley is at police headquarters is what we know. steve? >> reporter: it doesn't sound as bad as you made it there. it wasn't just people, it was the people that shot him that picked his pockets. so, it wasn't like somebody shot him, and then other people came along and then took his stuff. so, this was an armed robbery, just that the robbers, the
4:36 am
killers, took the stuff, after they had shot this poor guy. and as he was laying there bleeding on the street, so police say an obvious robbery, but not only did witnesses here tell police they saw this 31 year old man get shot, they say after he was shot, and lying there, in the street, two guys who shot him then went to his pocket taking anything they found. now you can zion our video, there was full red color soft drink bottle left on the street. so perhaps these guys followed this victim from where he had just bought it from and they saw him with a wallet, maybe with a cash wad or maybe credit cards. so they followed him. then armed hold-up. because they saw that he had something. or perhaps maybe they left it there and then left their fingerprint on t1 other thing karen police found next to the guy's body, a id that was not the victim's, so police were checking to see if it is perhaps an i.d. of one every these killers. so that would only not only
4:37 am
make them savage, but stupid. >> well, with any luck it, may be. because we see that as often the case with criminals. steve, thank you. the search is on right now for group of men police say targeted a grocery store in the fair hills section, not once, but twice. those are the suspect walking in, surveillance video from the fine fair market, last monday. police say three of the guys grabbed anything they could get their hands on, just shoving it along, while one of them guarded the door. now, two days later, this same group came back, and they stole from the same store again. there is a lucky man. he is a sheriff's lieutenant, works over at the cjc. they had an elevator accident. well, he's now waking up at home for the first time in six months, been a long road for lieutenant paul owens, he finally left magee, the rehab center, after he was critically injured in a violent elevator accident at the criminal justice center. all the sudden the elevator crashed through the concrete
4:38 am
ceiling of the shaft and left him with severe head and chest injuries. yesterday he said he's just happy to be home. >> just trying to get back to regular life. it is hard but, you know, just part of the process. got a long way to go. but i got this far. just happy to be going home today. that's all. >> there he is. going home. paul owens and his wife have filed lawsuit against the elevator company, and also the philadelphia municipal authority. the city of philadelphia says it has not seen the suit, and cannot comment. >> you may need to bring some more money to atlantic city if you plan to stay the night. it is not to gamble. your hotel bill may be going up. new jersey assembly speaker, vincent, want to add 2-dollar charge to every bill to help pay for the police and firefighters. this would end after two years, and would help to prevent massive police and firefighter layoffs in atlantic city. >> how about this one? guy name you may recognize, former philadelphia officer, now big-time sheriff who just

>> welcome back, 4:42, environmental officials say the water in flint michigan no longer contains dangerous levels of lead. michigan department of environmental quality is still urging people to use filters or to drink bottled water, because thousands of lead pipes still need to be replaced, the flint water crisis began in 2014, when city officials began using tap water, that was not properly treated, from the flint river, to save money. several former state and local officials face charges in connection to that crisis. there is a florida sheriff hoping to make a big statement with a speeding ticket. you may recognize his name. it is sheriff mike chitwood. he's the son of upper darby police superintendent, mike chitwood. deputy pulled over the florida sheriff. he was going 78 in the 55 zone. the deputy extended his boss, professional courtesy, was not going to write him a ticket. but sheriff chitwood later saw the ticket and said we need to set example for me and everybody else out there, that ticket cost him $281.

4:46 am
down toward the schuylkill expressway. certainly, a different morning rush hour ahead of us. things are drying out. did i not have to use the wipers this morning. so that's a welcome. hit couple of big old potholes along the way, watch it specially on the vine street expressway coming into downtown philly. the pennsylvania turnpike, there is a crew working on the westbound side between ft. washington all the way over to norristown. they will be out there until about of. same deal on the delaware memorial bridge. only one lane open into new jersey, making some just repairs, light volume at the moment. and no big deal. but, the big deal remains, turnpike connector bridge closed indefinately, because of that crack that was found over the weekends. now, the alternates from the pennsylvania side, kind of spread out, and it is actually worked out. about 40,000 vehicles being pushed to three separate options. the scutters falls, trenton-morrisville bridge, burlington bristol. not easy detour.
4:47 am
but the pennsylvania side has worked out better than the new jersey side. i talked to the folks last night, they say one of the problems, folks are following their gps system, whether it is in your car or on your phone, if the gps system doesn't have this closure as part of its program, folks come doing down from north jersey, pass exit 7a, it naturally takes them off at the next interchange which is exit five. that has pushed twice the amount of volume into mt. holly, headed over for the burlington bristol. so, keep in mind, if you are coming in from south jersey, maybe exit four, talcony palmyra would be good option today. new project begins later today, the closure of jfk boulevard between 30th street station and center city. so all the traffic will be push onto market street. we love the forecast for today. and there is no one better to give it to you than our sue serio, coming up in 15 seconds.

>> yes, today is the day that the nor'easter pulls away. even rhymed that. but we've got the northeasterly winds rolling in. it will dry us out. but it is also little chillier out there this morning than it was yesterday. solo pressure exits, and clouds are starting to thin out nicely, which means, that we will have sunshine for today. now we've got brief little warmfront, then cold front coming through. so a chance of showers early in the morning tomorrow. maybe about 3:00 in the morning. and lasting maybe through a lot of the rush hour. but mostly south and east of philadelphia. i would call it a passing shower for us. that's not really the headline. headline will be that the temperatures will drop throughout the afternoon. and we've got a cold wintery weekend in store.
4:49 am
still, casino every windy out there, especially, up in the mountains, with 25-mile per hour sustained winds, 40-mile per hour winds gust, but for all of us, our actual temperatures are above freezing. the windchills, though, are in the 30's. so, make sure to dress for 32, 36, 38, or if you're in mount pocono, 16 degrees. so, here's your p day forecast, don't get used to the mild temperatures. >> this will be an early high of 55 tomorrow. after 53 degrees today. forty-three on friday. then over the weaken back to seasonable january temperatures, 40, and 42, respectfully, for saturday, and sunday. and it stays chilly into the beginning of next week. >> in hank's take, the joyce of parenting. it can be interesting. and so our hank is proud father. so one of his boys is in those protein years, and he finds
