be crowned as the world champion boxer. take a look at what these young men are doing, they brave the heat. you will see the video coming up here. they braved the heat with lawn mowers to mow the lawn of the elderly. >> it made me feel good, giving me a second chance so that i can do other positive things instead of always doing negative. >> it helped me out, too, tremendously because i'm the one that cuts the grass. >> and the d.c. mayor was also out there taking a turn mowing the lawn. the program happens every saturday. >> you know, it's a hot day to do that, too. steamy out there. >> and storms came down yesterday as well. a lot of folks having a long
to the fourth of july in particular, and the one tracking weather is somara theodore, and joining us this sunday morning. what are we thinking as we look ahead. >> we have rain chances nestled in there, but overall not as bad as what we saw yesterday. today we are starting off gorgeous. a beautiful sunrise as you saw earlier. let's see what it feels like outside. i will admit, thought it would feel less humid by this hour. temperatures right now, 76 degrees, as we head throughout the remainder of the afternoon as the points do separate from the temperature, i think we will start to see that decrease in humidity. right now we are looking dry on the radar. nothing to worry about as we are headed out the door, getting ready for the festivities today. morning run, a little bit more humid as we head through the afternoon, that grilling out is going to be perfect. we are going to be seeing hot
grilling out. stay hydrated. it's going to be a great pool day because of that, temperatures climbing in the low 90s. if you are driving to the beach, it's smooth sailing as far as weather goes. i won't be able to say the same if we are talking about traffic. and then pushing towards the afternoon, notice how dry and also the lack of cloud cover. going to be a beautiful day around lunchtime with the sunshine moving in. and then spotty clouds making their way in to a couple neighborhoods. we are heading into monday and staying dry. i think the worst part of the holiday forecast is saturday. as we head into monday afternoon, we will see clouds billowing in. there's a slight chance for an afterno afternoon thundershower. here's a look at the july fourth forecast. waking up on
humidity begins to rise. isolated storm chances. not everybody seeing that chance, and i think everybody will remain dry and we could see a few spotty showers and thunderstorms. your storm team 4 forecast, in the 90s for the next couple of days. in the middle and the end of the week, we have the storm chances make a strong comeback and head to the kweu80s. >> thank you. reporters notebook is up next. we will be back in 15 minutes with more of the day's top stories. good morning, i am lpat lawson muse. recent europe attacks are on the minds of many, and you can already see some of the security measures part of the plan on the national mall to keep you and your family safe durth
fourth festivities. tom, let's start with you. what should folks who are planning to go to the mall expect to see this year, anything different? >> first of all, happy fourth of july week. it's the birthday of the nation, and the land of the free and the home of the brave but every since 9/11, we have more security around the national mall, and you can't take alcohol, and people used to take refrigerators but now because of the incidents around the country, and even in alexandria, it used to be snow fences that would push over, and now it's chain-link fences, and i can see the fireworks from the top of my apartment building, and big crowds come and the city does traffic control. >> while authorities are preparing, because they are very aware of the risks and people e
is to have people go about their daily lives. >> you know, i think it's going to be interested to see whether going about their daily lives means going to some of the smaller community gatherings. in northern virginia, there are a lot of festivities in some of the small communities, and so people can look at the fireworks there rather than down where the security is ramped up. >> and people think once i am in here i'm safe, and that's fine, and you have to put up with transportation. the district of columbia, they have had record tourism in the last few years. >> i was just going to ask you about that. >> every time i interviewed tourists, they were saying this is part of our live now that we expect these lone persons or groups to do something, but we
hover in fear, we have to live our lives. that's a great expression of american character. >> what we are more worried about is the weather. is it going to be cloudy again and drown out the fireworks like last year? >> yeah. it was terrible. >> it's supposed to be better. dozens of riders on the atvs and terrorizing people from washington, d.c. to maryland. there were similar scenes in arlington and alexandria. police were called but could not catch them. julie, these incidents are certainly extremely dangerous and disruptive. frustrating to police because they can't catch them. >> very frustrating, because their policy is a no-chase policy because of the danger that would occur in that case not only to the riders themselves but to the
that they might mow down in their path. this weekend's incident where they came in to arlington and alexandria, that was not the first time, and there was a few months ago where they went into arlington, and again, they did not chase or make arrests. and they did not chase, and police were not able to apprehend anybody. >> d.c. made them illegal. is that the solution? >> all terrain vehicles are not legal. the police in the district have posted pictures of these various machines to try and get the public to report them and say where they are, because they also don't chase. chasing an atv that is acting crazy and then cause some kind of death or other kind of destruction with the police
this takes a regional approach. whether it's in maryland, virginia or d.c., these vehicles scare the hell out of people, if i can say it as clearly as that, and they have to get them and corral them and keep them off the street. d.c. becomes the first in the nation to offer a gender-neutral driver's license. if you don't identify with a gender, you covered this. >> it's called nonbinary, and they don't consider themselves male or female. this aspect of human life dates back thousands of years, and in
says the head of the dmv was telling me this week that we need to respect people no matter who they are, and you don't have to have this specific gender, and x covers a whole range of people that don't identify with male or female. in the past the city had daone this, but you had to have a doctor's execute, and they are wiping it out and saying we want to respect all human beings. >> how significant is it that d.c. is the first? >> it's the first jurisdiction in the nation to do this, although oregon will do it later this week, and california is looking at it. states are moving along to recognize there's a whole wide range of human beings on the planet and we are trying to include everybody in a nondiscriminatory way. >> these licenses will be recognized in other ways? >> you can go to california or some other place or a football
it and say district of columbia? where is that? that's not a state. people had problems overseas and here, and now it may be a problem with an x where it says gender, and i was talking to transgender people this week about it and they said we put up with abuse and murder and discrimination, and we think we can fight the battle over what our license says. >> we can take a break. when we come back, julie, you have the latest on the virginia bassett is unique in regards to that customability. you've got a thousand different fabrics to pick from. very customizable. you can choose the back, you can choose the arm, you can choose the leg. we couldn't be any happier.
criticizing northrom. >> both of the candidates are staking out ground on some things that won't be big issues, at least in terms of the debate that they are having right now. the gillespie campaign is trying to make noise about not accepting debates for nor thrupl. the campaign has said it accepted three debates, and they are up to ten and they continue to hash those things out. ed gillespie at every turn is being confronted with what he thinks about the health
reform plan -- >> and president trump in general. >> yeah, and in the appearance in alexandria, it was supposed to be a low profile meet and greet at a barbecue restaurant, and some of the people were protesting outside and they came inside and tried to get a position on the bill working through the senate, and he's trying to stay as far as way as he can, and he does say that he thinks pre-existing conditions need to be covered and he will talk about a few other specifics. that's difficult ground for him. >> national republicans and democrats are making this a national race and a reflection on the democrats and republicans, and everybody thought ralph
easily. barely, the very conservative -- i was trump before trump candidate, and the whole campaign is going to be a virginia race and not a national race. at least in my view. >> and gillespie has called for party unity, and what is it going to take for cory stewart and the trump supporters -- >> well, they are making noises about continuing his political career, and yet over the weekend, last weekend we saw him at a pro trump rally alongside the face of the alt right richard spencer, and that's not a picture gillespie wants to project in virginia. >> and we're going to see obama on the stump for
>> president trump very unpopular in virginia, and obama a far more popular figure and they will call on him in the fall. >> the campaign said he agreed to do something, and i think you will see that later in the campaign and not in this quiet period in the summer. >> c ofpomstock's race. >> that's a hotly contested democratic race next year. her campaign tecontinues to say they feel she's in good shape, and she out performed donald trump by 16 points when she was re-elected, and she continues to keep her distanc
winchester. she has done a balancing act of trying to be the congress person of this area, and she's starting to follow in that footsteps. >> it's a changing district and that's a problem for her. >> there are several new laws in maryland and virginia. tom, did the maryland general assembly do an end run around republicans there? >> several states and including the district said if the republican-controlled house and senate and the predicate back on planned parent hood funding, and maryland voting to put $2.7 million that would go to planned parent hood, to carry on all of the work it does, not just
of health care. if the feds cut back on the money. they have not done it yet. >> no bill yet. in virginia, if you have overdo court fees do you loose your license? >> there's a couple significant changes and it boils down to you can't be a productive law-abi law-abiding citizen if you don't have a job. if your court fees are overdo then they pull your license, and the fees wrack up, and pay some people have ten-figure fees, and they wanted to get rid of that and that has finally happened. you know, the people will be allowed to keep their driver's license and the court will help work out a payment plan so people won't get into circumstances, and similar thing with driver's license. they were being yanked in that case, too, and
have more latitude with community service except when the marijuana position comes and somebody is behind the wheel. >> and in maryland now it's the law that schools teach students about addiction. >> yeah, and it's a long-term way of looking at epidemics taking over the country. students will need to know more about drug addiction. we don't need an opioid crisis to have our schools be much more progressive and informative about a great number of issues about drug abuse. this is a good step and i wish we would have had it in the 80s and 90s when we had crack cocaine epidemics when people were being locked up rather than help. that's it for this morning. i am lpat lawson muse.
your time is 6:30 on this sunday. we are going to start you off in prince georges county where police are trying to track down witnesses who may know anything about a homicide on the outer loop of the beltway. this was a bizarre situation. an officer found a man's body inside a stopped car just before midnight on pennsylvania avenue. he had been shot. police are asking for anybody with information to give them a call. a shooting suspect on the loose after a home invasion in brandy wine. two instraouders bursts into a home and started shooting. somebody inside the home fired back. one intruder died and the other fled and a person inside the home was injured. breaking within the last few minutes, the u.s. marshal service confirming the arrest of at least one suspect in the little rock mass shooting. this is ricky hampton. 28 people got hurt in the shooting. the city is forcing that club to
we welcome you in on the se2nd of july. >> what will the fourth of july look like? it's crazy it's the 2nd already. >> yeah, yesterday you felt the heat and the humidity and the storms moving through, and this is the summer in d.c. and somara theodore joining us in the team 4 storm weather center. >> we are in for a good couple of days. there are rain chances as we head through the top of the week but overall we are looking good for a holiday weekend. the first thing i want to break down for you is the headlines, things you need to know. not as humid walking out your door, and it will still be hot. temperatures climb
90s. isolated storm chances do follow us as we head into your july fourth. back to you. a candlelight vigil is planned tonight to honor the life of a father of four that was killed in a motorcycle crash. he lost control of his motorcycle in brandy wine. it happened on thursday on ranch avenue and moore road. tonight's vigil is set for 7:00 at the crash site. a boy hit while riding his bike. the driver allegedly taking off. if true, here's what is most disturbing. there are claims the car that hit him was a police cruiser. d.c. police are investigating the claims. police say the boy ran off the road and struck a wall in an alley,
reports. >> they are saying the driver, the officer, drove away. >> was he chasing you? >> yes. >> why was he chasing you? >> because he thought i had a weapon. >> did you have a weapon? >> no. >> but you had fireworks, firecrackers are something? >> yes. >> and the incident happened in this alley between otis place and newton street in northwest d.c. police said in a state the boy ran off the roadway and struck the wall in an alley, but he and his mom said it did not happen that way. >> i almost hit the wall but i stopped but the officer hit me on the back of the wheel. >> they are concerned officers drove off without helping the boy who has a cut on his leg and it's still sore. he said the officer wanted to know what
showed him and it was fireworks and the officer returned them and drove away. >> you clearly believe police hit your son on his bike? >> yes. i do. >> do you feel that it was an accident or what do you think happened? >> i don't think it was an accident. >> a police statement says while we are glad the juvenile was not seriously injured in the incident we are take the allegations involving one of our officers extremely seriously. they are conducting a full investigation to determine what happened and whether proper procedures were followed. she said it made her son fear the police. a dozen people were hurt after an uber driver passed out behind the wheel and slammed into pedestrians in harlem. you can see the black suv there mangled on the sidewalk outside a wendy's with some of the injured people getting
medical condition behind the wheel that caused him to slam into a city bus and lose control. this was around noon on wednesday. people on the sidewalk tried to get out of the way. >> you grab him to go this way, and he says, you know, like, everybody just kind of -- i know i went against the wall, and it seems very cold. >> the driver, a passenger and the uber -- a passenger in the uber and the police officer were among those taken to the hospital. two people in critical but stable condition. just before 1:00 this morning, donald trump sent out his latest tweet in it. he honored the military veterans. he delivered the speech last night during the first freedom rally.
would defend religious liberties and he spoke to the event's theme of religious rights. >> also reflect on everything we cherish as americans. we love our country and we love our families and we love our freedom and we love our god. >> president trump got travel ahead. he will be headed to germany next week for the g-20 summit. >> but before then, he's not wasting anytime shooting off fireworks on twitter. they are hitting on everything from the investigation of voter fraud to the host of msnbs's morning joe. kelly o'donnell looks at the explosive tweets. >> the president taking no holiday from twitter. first, a friendly shotout, happy canada day. then president trump set off more f
media feud, saying the host of "morning joe" is crazy and dumb. and then firing a rocket, what are they trying to hide. more than half of state election officials are refusing to submit voter registration commission to a voter fraud panel. >> i would be very hesitant to send out voter data that is available here in arkansas into a national database. >> among the reasons, privacy concerns, state authorities over elections and fears the data could be used to disqualify some voters. but the other pyrotechnic this weekend are going off over health care. >> stands up for the people here and saying we need our health care. >> and the republican senator -- >> i am doing my best to make sure that we
care for those with pre-existing conditions. >> facing heat from constituents, republican lawmakers find themselves back home with no plan yet and no answers on how to replace obamacare. >> kicking them off their health care, that -- >> that was nbc's kelly o'donnell reporting. health care will be at the forefront on "meet the press" this morning, and chuck todd will have an interview with tom carper and louisiana republican senator, bill cassidy. we will speak with chuck here on set in about six minutes. "meet the press" airs at 10:30 here on nbc 4. we will stick with politics now but headed into the commonwealth where we return virginias next governor. republican nominee, ed gillespie spent pt
office in springfield yesterday. he will take on the lieutenant governor, ralph authorize thrupl. the battle for control of iraq's second largest city has been going on for eight months now. iraqi troops are fighting on the ground and americans are providing intelligence to those troops. that intelligence includes tactical advice and calling in air strikes. the sun is out and you can see the sun rising there over the national harbor. over the next few days it will be warm, and we're updating the forecast for cookouts and fireworks. keeping you safe on metro, we will show you how first responders are preparing for the worst, before trains

together something that will bring the conservatives onboard and he could get moderates more funding for the opioid crisis but i don't know how they put it together at this point. ted cruz is trying to put something together, you can sell without the essential benefits, and you can sell a cheaper policy for younger people as well as you also sell a policy that does do pre-existing conditions and experts say all that will do is creating a bigger gulf and you will have higher premiums and won't get the younger people into the markets. i don't see how they are putting it to together. the shear will of politics was the way
fourth. >> what that is next? >> some form of bipartisan ship. a big deal? i don't think so. i talked to folks that said the most likely results -- assuming this fails and they can't get it through, and mitch mcconnell gave us one more week and that's it. when they come back after the recess, they get one week and if it can't be done they will do something to basically prop up the insurance markets. right? you have the rural counties struggling to attract the insurance companies and do whatever it takes to get the insurance companies to write policies in the sparsely populated counties. that's some compromise like that where they throw a little money at that, but it's nothing but a band-aid and we basically punt health care reform until the next election. >> we talk about it so often. >> the person not talking about health care is the
he's railing against the press and having a bizarre rally last night that nixed some things, but didn't talk about health care. >> that hurts his agenda, too. >> yeah. >> i know you have a lot coming up on the show, and one of my favorite authors, too. >> yeah, we did the interview a little earlier this week, but he is -- always makes you look at something from a different angle, and then you look at it and go, duh. >> we will catch you on the air right here on nbc 4 at 10:30 right after "news4 today." and then the safe track program for metro, and riders are hoping for a more reliable and safer commute.
>> we're still a few years off from the silver line rolling into loudoun county. first responders there are preparing well ahead for any e potential trouble. >> even with a harness on, most of us would likely pass on jumping out of a window head first. it's just another day of training for these loudoun county groups. their curriculum rapidly expanding. >> everything from simulators, and liquid propane gas fires and everything like this, trench rescue. but this is different. >> and he's referring to this. it's a metro trail simulator. >> this is something we have not dealt with. there's no rail lines in loudoun county. >> responders will be preparing this for silver line emergencies. preparedness doesn't wait. >> w
to the other. >> from potential terrorists attacks to insulators, and the spoke that may rise. >> when building a simulator like this, details matter. they wanted to have an old railcar to use for training, and they want to position this car on tracks so it was similar to what you would find in a real life scenario. everything from the distance to the car to the fence line, and the drop below. you don't always have a platform to step on to. >> they need to be able to climb on it, so that's why there's no steps on it. this is designed to be not as a train station. this is meant to be the one you see as you are driving. >> maria figueroa has been sharing this for several years, and they show the logistical choreography it took to hoist them on the tracks. >> what are
now we're ready if we have to respond to an emergency. >> preparing to keep you safe. turning now to weather. it has been hot. but it feels like summer. >> this is our first time working together, and your first time, too. >> yeah. i got good news. absolutely lovely conditions out there setting up for your sunday. it's more humid. i thought we would start to lose humidity early on, but it's going to come later on. 76 degrees right now, and winds out of the south at three miles per hour. i am thinking low 90s. a few spots might hit 95. radar showing dry conditions. we will stay dry for your subpoena sunday. how do we do a
roads later on today. and cape may waking up to foggy conditions and that's how bad the humidity is this morning. and then the beach, shower chances on the fourth of july. overall, a good amount of sunshine. out to ocean city. it's going to look lovely today, temperatures around 85 degrees. monday, 83. notice that storm chance creeps in again on tuesday. there's a pattern here. for virginia beach we will see the rain chances as we head through the next couple of days. it's hot out there. temperatures in the 90s. now, as for us here at home, we are going to stay dry and we are expecting some clouds to move through as we head through the afternoon. for your monday we start off quiet, and maybe an isolated shower chance in there. i think overall we are setting up for a nice top of the week. your july 4th
one as we see isolated showers and storms pop up later in the evening. the majority of us staying dry and hot conditions, though, and temperatures in the low 90s. i should have given you more time on this, and i apologize, and we are in the 90s for the next couple of days, and for the middle of the week that's when we get that increase in rain chances. >> we're just hoping that it's a clear sky on the fourth of july so we can see the fireworks finally. call them middle school masterminds.

are proving creating video games and creating them is tough work. >> and as news4's amy cho shows us. >> the girls in the computer class started from scratch. >> it works! >> they just about cracked the code to building a finished game. >> it's just super fun watching other people be product ive abot it, and it feels good because most girls think, oh, i can't do this because, you know, i'm a girl. people think girls are typical. >> designing games teaches coding, photo shop and math, and you won't find anything you will find in a textbook. >> you learn to work together to edit them and for feedback. >> iov
creating and there's so much excitement. >> that excitement is something many of them will last a lifetime. >> i would love to do this as a job, to wake up every day and be excited to go to work. >> do what you love and don't be afraid to make mistakes and tkoepbd b don't be afraid to stand up for yourselves. >> aoeupi'm so happy right now when. w
