her baby. spray the clerk feared for her life and handed the money. >> i think they're savages. you the do not do that top a child. a child that can in the walk, speak. the mother's uninstinct, her obvious instinct is to protect her child. >> janine: mom and baby not hurt. those thievessers still on the loose. and search on also on for two thieves caught on camera stealing worth of $10,000 worth of sunglasses. surveillance video from last thursday shows one of the men sitting near the entrance of the lens craft are shore in broward mall. the other iseeing ping up frames from the display. >> calvin: now to a story you saw first on 10. a home break-in ending with the suspect shot dead after he came face to face with a homeowner whw is also a police officer. this happened around 6:00 this morning along gauntlet hall lane in davey. the officer was inside with kids when he reportedly saw the alleged intruder forcing him to open fire. >> i'd say at least five or six shots.
5:01 pm
consecutive. y then i saw like a flashlight kind of going around and then less than five minutes later i saw police and emergency people show up. >> calvin: now, moments before, another attempted break-in was also reported in that neighborhood. lice now investigating if they are connected. local10's terrell forney will have much more on this story coming up in a life report at 6:00. >> janine: it was back to the campaign trail today for most of the presidential candidates except for florida senator mar rubio. he ended his campaign after losing the primary yesterday, and only local10 spoke with him as he arrived home this morning. >> i'm not doing any tv today. >> janine: local10 caaght up with marco rubio outside his west miami home after dropping his kids off at school. looking more look an ordinary dad rather than presidential candidate, he said little. >> thanks for coming out. >> janine: donald trump's win in the sunshine state last night was devastating enough for rubio to suspend his campaign. trump says his focus now is to unite the party.
5:02 pm
out there, and i think the publicans should grasp it. the third party guantees 100%. >> janine: john kasich pushing forward after taking all 66 delegates with a win in his home state of ohio. >> we are going to go all the way to clevela and secure the republican nomination. >> janine: to t democrats where hillary clinton swept four of the fife state up for grabs. >> when we care, a candidate for president call for rounding up 12 million immigrants, that doesn't mauk him strong, it makes him wrong. >> janine: as for bernie sanders, an overall disappointing night. the map for his path to the nomination looking extremely grim. a republic presideial debate next week on the fox but the network cancel afterward trump backed outed. >> calvin: now w@ want to get perspective on all of this.
5:03 pm
next for the candidates. >> janine: or senior political reporter michael putney is back with u on yesterday what was called mega tuesday. >> michael: it had many names. in t end it was a big day for hillary clinton and donald trump, and i think the big take way from yesterday's primary was pretty simple. the republican party is fractured and it doesn't look like donald trump can put it back together, not now anyway. he again last night called for party unity, but the gop establishment isn't buying it. they have spent millions of dollars through three political action committees to stop trump. that's the mantra, stop frump. but he is still winning and gaining delegates. he probably will not have enough delegates by the convention, however, to cinch the nomination. ted cruz won't of enough delegates either but he's got enough now to have leverage in the nominating process. the problem is the gop establishment hates ted cruz. he doesn't like them, either. john kasich picked up 66 delegates yesterday when he won
5:04 pm
but going forward it doesn't look like kasich will pick up many more delegates. still, he's got a little leverage, too, in the nominating process. over on the democratic side, not much drama. hillary clinton had a big night tuesday winning four of the five states voting. i ththk she's pretty much wrapped up the democratic nomination. bernie sanders, he had a dismal night but will keep on going because he has a big following, a fair number of delegates, and lots of money. the big question now is will there be a contested gop coention should trump get to philadelphia without the magic number of delegates, which is 1237. the answer is we simply won't know until the primaries are over. that will be in june. trump could do it but it is a long shot. he would need to win about 55% of the delegates in all the upcoming primaries, and that is a very high bar.
5:05 pm
particularly the word usage by trump dodd of it would be a right, although he was speaking metaphorically, i think, if he was denied the nomination. >> michael: and certainly there would be widespread anger. look at all the thousands of people who have voted for donald trump and who expect him to be the nominee of their party. if somehow he gets to philadelphia with 1150, i mean just short of the requisite number, and he doesn't get the nomination, there are going to be -- the angry people will be even angerrier. >> janine: absolutely. he says he would like to unify the party. >> michael: i don't think he's a unifying figure, though. thatat the problem. he's a polarizing figure. >>alvin: so the democrats in cleveland and republicans. >> michael: republicans in philadelphia. >> calvin: my old stomping ground. so the fight in philly, we can coin that for the gopy convention. >> michael: it is all yours, calvin. >> calvin: michael, thank you.
