afternoon, and a pop up thunderstorm is possible on saturday. but that's because it is just like summertime. so once again, for your thursday, high of 80 degrees with a little bit after breeze out of the southeast, this one will be good, by saturday, bob kelly, you'll all be whining about the heat and humidity. >> no problem, it is not the heat it is the humid that i will get you. good morning, 4:02, are you ready for some gridlock? here we go. police have the ramps to and from the parkway closed day one of the nfl draft here in town. the vine expressway off-ramps closed through the weekends. trying to get into the city, today is going to be the toughest day yet. the martin luther king and kelly drives pushed off before you get to the art museum, all of the cross streets across the parkway are in shutdown mode. i hate to say it, mr. commissioner, but there will be more people at the penn relays today than the draft because the draft
scenario doesn't happen until later on tonight. even though we have all of those closures, that have been in effect, the penn relays kick off today, the first race is at 10:00. and in typical years, past, we start to see the gridlock trying to get into university city at around 7:00 a.m. all of that traffic is going to be coming off of the schuylkill, exiting at south, exiting at university, exiting at 30th street. then watch for all of the lanes closures and detours in and around franklin field as we begin the penn relays. try something new today. how about the broad street subway? that runs underground. you won't have a problem at all. the market frankford line from northeast philly or from west philly connect you with city hall or coming in from the suburbs maybe grab coffee, the paper, take nice ride on the regional rails. if you ever wanted to try mass transit today is the day to give it a try. and right now, we have closure because of an over tub tractor-trailer north on 295
all traffic pushed off on to the 42 freeway, your best bet would be route 130 or the new jersey turnpike. karen, thomas, back over to you. >> bob, thank you. 4:04, back to breaking news we're following out of delaware this morning, where stand-off continues after state trooper was gunned down at a wawa while confronting two suspect. >> that trooper, we know, 32 year old steven ballard, eight year in the force. >> man police say killed corporal ballard, took off, remains inside a home. this is fluid store which new details coming in by the minute. >> let's get right to dave schratwieser. >> it is very scary. >> tension filled the night air in middletown as one of the suspect in the fatal shooting after delaware state trooper, barricaded himself inside a home here. beth atkins daughter inside their home few doors away. >> she called me hysterical crying saying she had heard gunshots, people were knocking on our very back door.

the experience is meant for families, fans, anyone who is interested in fun. technically don't even have to like football to come down here, admission is free, there will be autograph sieges, player appearances, flag football competition cents, youth clinics, concessions, and zip line. the ffl says this is the largest festival footprint they've ever created, happening here in philadelphia, spanning the size of 25 football fields, the actual draft is a ticketed event and kicks off tonight on the grand stage that pretty much blocks the art museum. any line of site that you have from the ben franklin parkway, you can hardly see the museum, because the stage is huge. they're doing it big for philly. the draft hasn't been here since the event kicked off in 1936. a much smaller scale nfl draft back in those days. the nfl is expecting a lot of eyes on philadelphia over the next few days. 40 million viewers to be exact. that's the number expected to
be watching this nfl draft happening, again, over the next few days. karen, thomas? >> jenny, thank you so much. we're ready for this one. we need something to bring everybody together. let's see what our city has gotten all decked out. peco crown all about the draft up there. so we will have coverage all morning long, and of course the later hours every good day will be out there in the middle of it. >> did you hear about this one? no laughing matter. >> yes, still ahead here on "good day," why bill cosby is talking about a career come back. >> and also bill cosby, kids have been complaining for years, certainly, oh, school starts too early. well, there is one state in our area, in our tri-state, where they're actually saying school should start later for the kids. hey, bob kelly, also take your kid to work day. >> yes, exactly. i tried waking them up. they want nothing to do with that this morning. straight out of a monopoly game, we got free parking today at the stadium complex for everybody headed to the

>> steve keeley near the scene this morning, good morning, steve. >> reporter: well, i've been in phone contact with a neighbor who lives just few blocks from here, not evacuated. we're at the staging area. you can see the road closure here, and this parking lot, full of residents, not allowed back into their houses, and they're all waiting this out in their cars and pick-up trucks. and they've been here since they got home from work, not wanting to go to a hotel and evacuation center just thinking this will ends any minute. since 1:52 this neighbor i've been talking to on the phone has heard series of loud bangs, kind of like those explosions, those concussion grenades, that police will send in. now, delaware state police put out publicly at 8:22 that they tried to blow the front door off, but they didn't get in, and the gunman didn't get out. then at 1:52 this neighbor tells us allowed bang woke him out after sound sleep and rattled his windows. and then, two more loud bangs,
just after that, after he was awake. then about an hour later, three more loud bangs. then, just at 4:00, allowed banks, followed by two more banks, then two more. so five more kind of blasts just since 4:00 a.m. so that tells you something is going on at this house. and the neighbors say this gunman lives at this house and maybe that's why police didn't want to go in. maybe there is somebody else in there with them that they didn't want to harm, or maybe they fear since he had the one gun, that probably was used to kill the trooper, he may have an arsenal in there. and they didn't know what he had, because he was shooting out at them since they tried to get him just after they learned he was there since the shooting of this trooper yesterday. so that's the story we have not gotten any official update all night. we're waiting eitheron line or in person here. so are the neighbors certainly a lot of them as dave schratwieser met one, the nanny and two young kids, are
stuck in the house, the parent who were at work all day stuck over here in the parking lot. so this is a scene that still is going right now, and we wish we could tell you what those loud bangs indicated, but it sounds like they're trying to do all they can to get this guy it come out since he's not coming out on his own peacefully, karen, thomas? >> we have to wait and see, fluid situation ongoing for 13 plus hours. our steve keeley on the scene. i know you'll update us as soon as you get more, steve, thank you. >> the time right now 4:17. let's switch gears, get a check of our weather. we've had big change from yesterday to today, sue. >> big change, a phillies afternoon game start at 1:00 with the march lens, it will already be in the 70s by then. bring your sunscreen. because it has been pretty gloomy the past couple of days, we haven't been out and about, and you will definitely need to be protected, not only at the phillies game, this is the same forecast for when the nfl draft experience, as well, in the 70s at noon when it get started. so nothing to show you on
radar. but, it is not going to be an entirely rain-free forecast for the next couple of days, even though it is warming up. look what happens late friday, late tonight, i should say, into friday morning. in the overnight hours, we've got some showers, maybe thunderstorm coming through. the time something pretty good on this. because it looks like it will be an overnight event. should be out of here by the time we get started here on "good day" tomorrow morning. next up, another chance of showers, but this is late in the day on saturday. so toward the time when the draft experience is wrapping up, we will be seeing a cool front come through. and that's what is going won that, so, again, we take a lock at the phillies forecast, the temperature is going to be about 72 degrees, when all that happens, and we will get to high of around 80 later on today. that is a look at your forecast, when we start feeling like summertime, and just get used to that, things will cool off again. we will show that you coming up in the seven day forecast, bob kelly?
>> yes, little taste of the summertime coming our way today. 4:18. good morning, everybody, we've got closure of 295. the northbound lanes of 295, all traffic pushed off at the 42 freeway, here in bellmawr, all because after accident best bet, route 130, the new jersey turnpike, all-star high tops, and let's go. >> typically see the jams, expecting 50,000 people there, all by 10:00 a.m. this morning. all of that traffic is going to exit, the schuylkill expressway at either south street, university, see heavy traffic, detours, police presence, 32nd over to 34th, south to walnut and spruce. again all headed right there into the penn relays at franklin field. and of course coming into the city, for the draft, later on today, the vine expressway, has been closed. the off ramp to the parkway closed, remain closed over the
weekends, a lot of traffic backing cars up and over all the way into new jersey during the morning rush hour on the ben franklin bridge coming into center city today again the martin luther king, kelly drive, no one is getting anywhere close to the art museum, and the ben franklin parkway. all of the cross street have no cross traffic, all of the high number streets from 20 all the way up to 24th, and again the no parking signs, being enforced, and heavy police presence, this morning, around the parkway and the art museum. try something new. today's the day, you want to give something a try, the broad street subway or the market frankford line, even if you are not going to the events, just to get into work, into center city, today would be the best day to give mass transit a try, maybe take a nice train ride in from the suburbs, on anyone of septa's regional rail lines, karen, thomas, back to you. >> today would be the day, bob, thank you. 4:20, bill cosby says he is working on new material, and hoping to revive his comedy career. cosby revealed while speak to go some select media outlets.

and she says it is insane, karen nard owe with us here, one of the neighbors, not able to get to her house, nervous and shaking trying keep her still here, and she's in contact over facebook, and she's just one block over. what's she telling you? >> she is telling me the explosions, she hearing boom, boom, boom, gunshots, and she's trying to tell us up here what's going on. and we're telling her what's going on up here. so -- >> the woman i'm talking to, and getting information from, is a nursing mother who is terrified with a one month old baby in the house, is she taking cover or is she trying to look out the window one block over? >> she's -- i don't know where she is in the house. but this is what she is hearing. >> and -- >> we could hear little bit up here, too you. hearing when you hear these echos in this mall, how far away would you say we are from the house where this is all happening? >> i would say about a half mile. >> so anything you hear in the distance. and your thoughts?
you've been out here, look, dot math, this is almost 17 hours where you've been wait to go get into your home? >> since 2:00 this afternoon. >> yes. >> now it is yesterday afternoon, and trooper was killed just afternoon time. do you know anything about -- explain this neighborhood? it looks like a nice subdivision, big leafy suburbs. >> very, people are outside all the time. what's going to happen now? >> the neighborhood association has been sharing information on facebook. i always hesitate to put that on, because i don't know if you are getting it from police, but neighbors are talking about how they fear this guy is in full body armor, were police updating people telling them anything about this person? where were you get that information on from on your facebook? >> well a state trooper told us earlier about, you know, the red cross, what they were giving us, and where we could go, and what we could do, and but i mean you can see a lot of people just stayed here. a lot of people went. but a lot of people stayed too.
>> they gave you an area where could you stay or go to hotel, but a lot of people look, a lot of cars here, a the love people just staying here thinking it would ends any minute since yesterday when you got here? >> yes. i mean, we have dogs in the house, you know, mine hasn't been fed for over 12 hours. >> and then people are stuck in the house, and we know, and a nancy with two little kids where the par rent stuck here. >> exactly, exactly. >> i'm sure it feels surreal to you. but karen, hang in there. it sounds like it is getting over or at least the police are making a effort to. so there is the update. we got a couple of neighbors on line and on the phone, and again, as this happens, right now, since 4:00, non-stop explosions and blasts at this house where they've seen smoke in the sky. they can see the smoke, karen, thomas, balls the house is lit with construction spotlights by police, because they tried to blow the door off, just as it was getting dark around 8:00 last night. they didn't get the guy out. they didn't go in. because they didn't want a second police officer getting killed or even more by this
heavily armed, and if you shoot and kill a state trooper, when he's down on the grounds, obviously, you don't have any fear of shooting any more cops or coming to your house to get you. and that's the thought for police. so they've been making sure no other officers die in the line every duty. and they're trying to make sure no neighbors are getting killed either. so that's why karen and the rest of the folks are being kept back, as we are, and we will let you know as soon as we hear anything, but so far, no official updates, because obviously police are quite busy dealing with this guy still right now. >> quite busy. steve we know you'll give us all of the update out there. as the story unfolds we'll keep you updated immediately on air and also on fox29.com. >> also this morning, philadelphia police officer is suspended and facing charges for the death of a 50 year old man. police say 24 year old adam soto was off duty when his car hit and killed danny dimitri in northeast philadelphia back in january. his family claims soto was drag racing with other off duty officers.
police have also suspended officer tony forest, although, they say tote owe was the one who hit and killed dimitri. >> they were in separate cars at this point i can't speak to whether or not the investigation specifically determined drag races, but certainly at wreckless speeds. of course the striking of soto's vehicle was directly responsible to the death of mr. dimitri. >> officers surrendered to internal affairs, soto faces see zero vehicular homicide. >> the time right now is 4:37. so playing the music, we have this other big story happening today. >> of course the future of the nfl. a lot of people ready for this one. we say rain or shine, but it will be shine. the draft kicks off here right here in philadelphia. >> so it will be pretty exciting, on the spotlight, focus every all of that, so many fun things people: do for free. our jenny joyce, in the thick of it now, jenny? >> reporter: good morning, karen, thomas.
yes, ma'am, admission to the nfl draft experience is free. that is the best part about the event. and all eyes will be on philadelphia, actually, 40 million. that's the estimated viewership over the three day draft. the draft itself is a ticketed event, but again, the nfl draft experience is not. it is open to all, and it is free, 200,000 people expected to attend, and take advantage of autograph signings, player appearances, flag football competitions, youth clinics, concessions, and a zip line. the nfl says this is the largest festival footprint they've ever created, spanning the size of 25 football fields. and it all kicks off today at noon. people who are interested in coming down should expect to pass through metal detectors, no back packs, selfie sticks or smoking allowed, but you can bring an empty water bottle. in fact, that's encouraged because it will be warm over the next few days. karen, thomas? >> all right, that's the
truth, and we will try to have everyone do all of those things, good suggestions, jenny, thank you. >> with the draft also comes a lot of deals. >> still ahead this morning, here on "good day" philadelphia, some of the deep dis counts, and freebies, you can get your hands on. draft day deals coming up. how your clothes smell can say at lot about you.
