police officers. you can see people coming up to the federal center southwest station and realizing it is closed. as you said, for the rest of the day for that maintenance. no transit service between eastern market and l'enfant plaza. also silver line operating between wheely, reston, and boston only. i can tell you that the ripple effect of this -- i know we've had some people who have tweeted pictures. we've seen incredibly crowded platforms at the downtown stations. now, the main fire department activity, the fire engines, the vehicles that they sent earlier, no longer here. that leads me to believe whatever fire situation

6:03 pm
station, correct? >> reporter: that's correct. who is to say whether there is a connection between the two things. there's so much going on with this right now. someone on wtop was talking earlier they thought this problem, the insulator problem, had been addressed in the big shutdown for the day earlier last month rather. right now it's a fluid situation, but anyone who is commuting home by metro, you absolutely want to let them know about this. sometimes the bus bridges are very efficient. everybody knows where to go. sometimes there's a lot of confusion. it can get so frustrating for people. >> indeed. we're looking at presidential politics now. hillary clinton and donald trump both calling for party unity tonight. >> but it looks like the task is tougher for trump at least right now. he's facing party defections and some republicans are even threatening to vote for clinton. an

county courthouse. >> reporter: the victim steven lee was viciously beaten and stabbed at a weekend party. but instead of calling 911, his friends drove him back to his centerville townhouse, put him in bed, and that's where his family found him dead later that day. friends at george mason university where he took classes know him as steven lee. one writes he was someone that had the kindest heart and was a blessing to those around him. he was also someone who was always willing to help anyone in need. some of his friends didn't help him at his time of greatest need. investigators report lee went to a large party the night of april 23rd that lasted into the early morning hours of april 24th. there he was physically assaulted by a mob of 10 to 15 individuals. a witness tells
6:11 pm
people stomping, kicking, and punching lee while he lay motionless on the kitchen floor. he was then stabbed. but instead of calling 911 for help, his friends reportedly put him in the car and drove him bleeding back to his townhouse where they placed him in bed. last week police went to serve a search warrant on this townhouse looking for possible evidence connected to the attack. the front door at that home still ajar. one of lee's friends tells me at the party were some gang members and that lee might have angered one of them when he tried to defend a young woman a few days earlier. as police continue the investigation, hundreds came together a week ago for the funeral to mourn the loss of steven lee. the youth group reports on his facebook page that lee was a volunteer and a small group leader. one of his closest friends has set up this gofundme page to raise money to help his family through this
