6:02 am
on satellite and radar, you can see our next approaching system. not a lot of rain with this one as we move into saturday, that will make its approach but the heat and humidity are the big story in the first alert seven- day. we'll talk more about that in a few minutes. right now time for time saver traffic. larry, take it away. >> your time 6:02 on the dot. it is friday. metro riders, want to let you know again no issues on the trains or buss so we are certainly in good shape there. -- buses so we are certainly in good shape there. out in virginia we have an accident. early indications suggest it may be serious at dumfries road and folksville -- nokesville road. we'll let you know what we find out but you might want to stay away from this area as police will be working to get more information and possibly free this person from that vehicle there. around the beltway, we are certainly in good shape with no issues either on the inner or outer loop. 395, parts of d.c. 95 free and clear. but it's maryland 295 that we have some issues going on right now. it leaves me to believe
6:03 am

6:04 am
are now looking into the backgrounds of the gunman for answers. >> we are checking every possible place that he could reside or could have resided, visited, where he went to school. >> reporter: using an automatic rifle, authorities say 24-year- old mohammod youssef abdulazees opened fire on the marines at this military facility thursday before he was shot and killed by police. while the you can wait born gunman -- coup wait born gun ookuwait born gunman was not on the terrorist list -- [ inaudible ] >> at this point authorities aren't sure what motivated abdulazees to first open fire here at the strip mall before driving seven miles away and kills those marines but they are looking into whether he was motivated or influenced by isis. >> we do know isis for the last several weekses have been putting out social media across the world telling people that they will enjoy ten times the
6:05 am
reward in the afterlife if they commit an act of jihaddism, martyr for isis. >> reporter: authorities plan to analyze the gunman's computer and phone records for clues. kenneth craig, cbs news, chattanooga, tennessee. >> we still don't know the names of the four marines. they're not being released till all of their families have been notified. >> the three other people who were wounded in the attack remain hospitalized. >> reporter: now the concern is growing about the safety of other military recruiting centers around the country because they are looking for new recruits, these centers intentionally make it easy to walk in and talk about possibly joining the military. that also, however, makes them soft targets when it comes to shootings like this. new york city is one place that is ramping up security at their recruiting centers as a precaution. like d.c., new york is always on high alert. former f.b.i. assistant director bill gavin is among those concerned about
6:06 am
recruiter safety. >> there are these military people standing, recruiting, getting like kind to defend our country and they're not defended themselves. >> at this point the pentagon is not asking recruiting centers nationwide to increase security just yet. they released a statement saying they are working with local authorities to assess the situation to see if any changes are necessary. two d.c. men are in custody this morning accused of opening fire inside a takoma park motel. the two were charged with attempted murder after allegedly opening fire at the econo lodge on new hampshire avenue. the victim is a hyattsville man in his 20s. he is expected to recover. a vicious attack in northwest d.c. caught on camera and it was all over a bicycle. we have the video of that attack. before i show it to you, i want to warn you it is graphic and it is hard to see.

thank you so much. if you're going to be traveling on i-270, the southbound side at truck scales appears we have some debris in the road. backups all the way to urbana at this point. taking that into account for buckeystown pike to the beltway, you're looking at a 58- minute commute. that's considering those delays in urbana this morning so be mindful of that. on 66 certainly in good shape from james madison highway to l street northwest a 32-minute commute. no issues on 95 from joplin road up toward the beltway an 18-minute commute as well. westbound on 50 from mlk highway to penn street northeast, you're looking at a 11-minute commute. outside from our trafficland camera, we can get a look at how things are shaping up 066. this is west of -- 066. this is west of nutley street. traffic light on both the eastbound and westbound side. good news there. from our maryland camera, we get a look at how things are shaping up on i-270. this would actually be south close to clarksburg road south of urbana where we have again that debris on the road. just be mindful if you're going to be heading out in that area.
