5:03 am
fire on her. lauren johnson, at southwest detectives, five times, unbelievable, lauren. >> reporter: that's right, thomas, another question they're trying to get an answer to is was she the intended target? that's what they're trying to get from witnesses who they interviewed shortly after the shooting here at southwest detectives. here's what they know at this hour. there was a barbeque earlier in the day at the home on springfield street. several hours later this was small group of teenager namely females standing on the front stems after home there. well, just after midnight, someone sprayed bullet directly at the teens, at least five of them, hit a 16 year old in her right arm. two other fly through a first floor window, right into the living room, where four other people were. the teen ran inside, leaving the home bloodied. >> it appears that the shots were intentionally fired at this group. there is not only was this female struck multiple times, two bullets enters a window after house, right where she was standing, and there is also strike marks, on the front steps of the house,
5:04 am
where she was standig. so, we don't know if the 16 year old victim was the intended target. but it, appears that the shooter was firing into the crowd of people that the 16 year old was with. >> another question police are trying to answer, if the shooter fired the shots from a car, and in a drive by, or if this was someone on foot. but witnesses did remember seeing a car speed away from the scene, going west on springfield, right toward 60 street. cameras point in the that exact direction, will be helpful for police to identify the car. maybe even the shooter or the driver, if someone got out of the car to unload that gun, into a crowd of people, at this hour, the 16 year old is at presbyterian hospital in stable condition. thomas, karen? >> all right, lauren, thank you so much. also, following some more breaking news, this is from olney, where police are investigating a deadly pedestrian accident. there was a man who was hit by mini-van just after 12:30 this morning, on the boulevard, once again, such a deadly road. this was right by wyoming.
5:05 am
he was then run over by an s.u.v. that was traveling in the same direction, police say, the victim, 36 years old, was hit with such force, that he was knocked right out of his sneakers. both drivers stopped. stayed right there at the scene. they do not appear to be at fault. >> human remains found on vacant lot in north philadelphia are now in the hands of the medical examiners office. and they're working to determine who the person is. and how that person died. police say they got the call yesterday afternoon, about possible human remains, this is at the corner of 17th and atlantic streets. they say a private contractor told them they found a jaw bone with teeth in a skull mix in the with dirt and debris. an excavator digging on the site monday of last week discovered bones, but, didn't contact police because they believed they were animal bones. the bones were about 6 feet underground, and police believe, the make up of the body based on the clothing may be a woman. >> ribs, a spine, pelvis, arms and legs, some of the body
5:06 am
parts are missing, but most, most of the bones are intact. the body appeared to be wearing pink clothing, possibly a pink jacket and other pink clothing underneath. >> a laudromat that used to be on the lot was demolished late last year. investigators believe the body was intact until crews started digging up the ground. >> 5:06. pair every gun toting young women are driving around delaware county, and they're creating a lot of havoc. already held up two taxi drivers and two senior citizens, obviously police want to get them off the streets before they strike again. let's get out to steve keeley. he's over at upper darby police headquarters, steve? >> reporter: well, the women got in the cab, they put guns to the taxi drivers heads to rob them. then 86 year old, the old else of all of the victims, told us through a translator how she couldn't understands the demands, and then she got beaten up with the gun. >> they're very, very violent. they're escalating their

5:08 am
from the two women's purses, they never just dump the purses where people would find them and maybe turn them into the cops because among the items worthless to the robbers but needed so much by 86 year old martha, in her purse, her dentures. that's how low these people are. they saw the dentures in there, and they still don't hand them in where she can get her teeth. >> obviously, extremely inconsiderate suspect out there, thank you very much, steve. >> it is 5:08. police departments across pennsylvania will have more discretion when it comes to using body cameras. the governor says he's going to sign a bill to clear legal hurdles for police to expand their use. it will also give didn't discretion to refuse public requests for copies of audio or video recordings by officers. the senate approved the bill yesterday. >> testimony continues today in the trial of philadelphia district attorney seth williams. bar owner michael weiss took the stands for a second day if the federal corruption trial. weiss owns the popular spot

area. but the trains are not able to begin their trips out of dc, so all service suspended right now, between philly and washington, amtrak said they'll have another update coming our way at 7:00 a.m. so, obviously, that's naturally going to impact trains going in and out of new york, again, no trains are able to come out of washington, to start the early morning trip. so service is suspended between philly and dc on the northeast corridor. the other problem is north on 95, this overturned tractor-trailer on the northbound side at exit number five which is right at the split for 495 and the delaware memorial bridge. anyone coming from the south, headed north into wilmington this morning, expect delays on 95, and probably with this northeast corridor amtrak scenario, we will see a lot of folks scrambling to get a rental car between philly and dc. so that's going to throw some extra volume that way. your best bet, through the neighborhood, you can use route 13 and that will get you up into 495.

assuming all on the same page, that's been the hard port here. at some point, they're going to be faced with a difficult decision. because if republicans can't get a version of their own plan threw congress, they have to do pretty big fix on obamacare because there really are some real issues, significant issues, with obamacare that need to be addressed if republicans couldn't get a plan through, then meisha plan b to work together to shore up obamacare. at some point something is going to need to be fixed. >> the truth, doug, thank you. we appreciate it. >> 5:39. the great escape. new reality entertainment coming to one of philly's museums. >> first, here is sean bell with sports. >> sixers trying to revisit the well. happy to go, now going after in free agency. that's coming up next in sport.

is preventing the trains from getting out of the station to begin the morning. it sound like someone hit by a train down on the tracks in that dc area. bottom line for us right here in philly, no service at the moment between philly and washington on the amtrak northeast corridor. amtrak says they'll update us again at 7:00 a.m. that's obviously going to have domino effect for trains going to new york. if we can't get trains into philly, they're not going to be able to get up to new york, so trains that are within this stretch of the track, obviously, will work, but delays and concellations on amtrak, first one to the rental car platform gets the forecaster available. we'll see that happening at 30th street station today. and of course, down in d.c. now, unrelated situations, delays on both the paoli and the wilmington line, and then on 95, in delaware, northbound, overturned tractor-trailer. this happened at about 2:00 this morning. sound like the driver may have fallen asleep.
5:48 am
because the truck is the only one involved. but, north on 95, it is right at a rough spot. it is at exit five, which is right where 495 and 295 all come together, and of course, 295 is your access to the delaware memorial bridge. so if you are coming northbound this morning, from the south, heading up in toward wilmington, that tractor-trailer accident is right before your option of 495 or the delaware memorial. your best alternate would be route 13 into wilmington this morning. otherwise here we go. here comes the sun. getting ready to peak up and over the tree line on the schuylkill expressway coming around your curve and coming in from new jersey, the freeway, starting to see delays into the walt whitman bridge. how hot is it going to get? sue has the forecast in 15 seconds.
5:49 am

5:50 am
pop up showers and thunderstorms, we will see what happens with that. but that's pretty much a given any time it get hot and humid. but it is not that way yet. 63 degrees in philadelphia. 47 degrees in mount pocono. 57 degrees in lancaster. 66 degrees in wildwood. 58 degrees in atlantic city. the average high for this time of year is 86 degrees. we have spent the last two days below average, with 82 on monday, zero eight yesterday, and 80 today. so that's pretty much the last day of the weather pattern. now we get into the upper 80s tomorrow but it will be quite breezy, wind gusting up to 25 miles an hour, so may not feel too bad tomorrow. really gets soupy on friday with 92 degrees, lots of humidity, then saturday, and sunday, and monday, and fourth of july, looks like, we could be in the 90s, that entire stretch of time. thomas, karen? >> thank you, sue, sue, bob had you laughing so loud. what were you laughing about? >> oh, we had lots of stuff. we were teasing sony who is in
