melvin caraway is off the job today, reassigned after airport screeners around the country flunked a critical test. >> the results are astounding, troubling and demand not just a minor response from the tsa but a top to bottom examination and overhaul. >> it's government at its worst, and it should be government at its best. >> reporter: government agents successfully smuggled mock explosives, weapons and other contraband through security in 67 out of 70 cases. a shocking 95% failure rate. >> this story is different that it's a broad number of airports, a lot more tests. it really shows that the problem is everywhere. >> reporter: former tsa chief john pistole says the government testers, a so-called red team, are experts at finding and exploiting airport weaknesses and they have inside information on tsa protocols. >> it makes it a challenge, but tsa needs to be up to that challenge to address that potential 1 in a billion
6:01 pm
terrorists. >> reporter: but tests designed to make airports safer not exactly boosting confidence in the tsa. brian mooar, nbc news, washington. a man being monitored 24 hours a day by terrorism investigators was shot and killed this morning. >> officers say he lunged at them with a knife when they tried to question him outside a drugstore in boston. nbc's pete williams has been working this story all day. a couple of things are interesting. what do we know about the suspect? and is it normal for them to be monitoring someone and then to just approach them outside a drugstore like this to question him? >> reporter: he's from boston, 26 years old, his father had been an imam in the boston area but no longer lives there, now lives in california. but they say they got onto him because of what they considered disturbing compunctions he's had with others potentially inspire d by isis social media. they say in recent days he had talked about trying to stage some kind of an attack within the next few days. that was a tweet just
6:02 pm
yesterday -- communication just yesterday. at the didn't have an arrest warrant but decided to approach him. it was just after 7:00 at a bus stop near a drugstore in boston. they say he pulled out a knife, a large what they described as military-style knife, and came toward them. they hadn't drawn their weapons at that point, but they did then and they kept telling him to drof the knife. he didn't. so they shot him twice, once in the chest and once in the abdomen. he was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead. but they said they had him under surveillance for several weeks in fact. >> so are they suggesting now that we're taking him down they have thwarted some kind of possible terrorist activity? >> they certainly say they ended a potential attack on police in boston boston, they believe that's what he was preparing to do. now the question is was he acting simply on his own. >> so what are they saying about that? >> well, they are -- let me put it this way. they are actively investigate gt
6:03 pm
it. the sign that's we can see the visible scenes show that they believe he was in communication with others. they've done two searches this the boston area and another search in warrick, rhode island. some people have been taken into custody for questioning. no one has been arrested yet is our understanding. but obviously this is an investigation very much still under way. >> all right, pete williams, thank you so much. >> you bet. well, scenes like this one in boston underline the need for nsa surveillance programs according to supporters. but critics say the programs are going too far. and after a bruising congressional battle, president obama is expected to take a new step tonight to balance liberty and security. steve handelsman continues our team coverage with this. >> reporter: the obama plan a bipartisan plan, to continue mass phone surveillance, just to shift it from the nsa to private phone companies passed the senate overwhelmingly a couple of weeks ago in the house. the president will sign it which means the couple of day
6:04 pm
hiatus in collecting our foeb records, not the convict tenlt again of what was said but who calls whom in every call in the u.s. will continue, which leads us back to the boston case. that means, since the nsa never stopped -- did stop i should say collecting the data but never purged its records of all the billions of phone call data bits that it had, that means investigators can go back and look at every single phone call that osama rahim made on his phone and everybody who called him to put together a paernlt. if he were still alive, something called the lone wolf plan would have perhaps applied to him if he were not considered, according to federal investigators, working for a foreign agency. just to be under the influence, a lone wolf inspired by foreign terrorists, would have allowed the kind of data collection and
6:05 pm
using of the data, the looking at the data that the nsa does not do for you or me but could in his particular case. so na's what supporters say this program is for. no doubt it will be used in this case in boston. back to you. >> thanks, steve. there's going to be a vigil tomorrow night for a young woman that police say was killed by her 'em boyfriend. family members say marie i'd aid abuy row yoe had gone to the target parking lot to talk to her former boyfriend. police say they got into an argument and minutes later she was shot and killed. lease say bricker then led them on a chase that ended when he crashed in the darnztown area. our meagan fitzgerald spoke to the victim's family. she's in germantown now with more on this. meagan? >> reporter: jim marie adebayo's family is devastated as you might imagine. they tell us she got a message from her ex-boyfriend to meet at the target behind me to have a
6:06 pm
conversation about their relationship. she agreed and now her family will never see her alive again. >> she was so kind and so nonjudgmental. she was great. >> reporter: she was 24-year-old marie shade adebayo. her cousin who didn't want to go on camera says she was loving, warm and always so forgiving. >> when you talk to her about things that were going on she always let you know it's going to be all right. >> reporter: her family says she dated 27-year-old donald bricker jr. for about six months, never knowing he was a registered sex offender with a criminal past. their relationship ended but her cousin says because of marie's forgiving ways, she decided to meet bricker at this target parking lot to talk. on monday night montgomery county police say that conversation turned into an argument and bricker shot and killed marie before taking off, leading police on a pursuit before bricker crashed his car on darnstown road where

6:16 pm
a little bit of rain still on the radar. it's been a drizzly day. are we going to have a drizzly week? >> that rain was really coming down. we saw about 2 1/2 inches of rain at the airports bwi and reagan national both setting records for daily rainfall yesterday. that won'ting the case today. 83 yes, we'll see rain tonightor and more tomorrow, but the rain for the most part is light. here is our reston camera. this is the time lapse. you see the rain and then dry and then here comes another bax of rain that makes its way through here. that's exactly what we're going to tib to see as we move on through the rest of the evening and you can see on radar we saw a little bit of a dry spell earlier this afternoon but look how the rain has just enveloped the region today. that's going to bes the case the rift of the evening, montgomery county and i-95 and all of southern maryland has a good chance to see the rain. i really think it will be areawide. heaviest rain right now to the south, montgomery, most of this just drizzle or light rain,
6:17 pm
maybe some mist continuing toward d.c. bowie, if annapolis. 301 to the south, you get into the heavier rain, charles county and route 2, route 4 through 5, toward leonard town and calvert beach. that's where we're seeing moderate rain nothing too heavy and no thunderstorms with this. why? it's just too cool. we've got drizzle. you can see the clouds lowering here. they'll continue to do so. 62 degrees right now winds out of the northeast at 10 miles per hour. that northeasterly flow helps to bring in that cooler, very damp air. i think that's going to be the case over the next couple of days. only 61 in leesburg right now, 57 in gaugeithersburg and 59 in huntingtown. again wer 92 yesterday after and now 30 degrees cooler. that's the way we're going to stay. it's all because of the clowe cover. you see the clouds and area of high pressure at the surface bringing us that northeasterly flow. widen out and you see the spin. that's an area of low pressure in the upper levels of the at mros fear, and that's puming up
6:18 pm
a lot of this moisture also helping to produce the cloud cover. you combine the cool air at the surface, the very warm, moist air aloft and that's why we're seeing the drisz elle and continue to see it tonight. future weather doesn't pick up drizzle very well but picks up shower activity. that's what we're going to be seeing, more drizzle more showers during the day tomorrow. take the umbrella with you. i think you'll need it from time to time. here's noon, and notice where the bulk of the showers are. these are steady showers down toward northern virginia and portions of southern maryland along the potomac. high temperatures tomorrow very similar to right now, 60s. 67 in fredericksburg and 64 toward martinsburg. la plata at 66. we'll see a few showers though i don't think we'll need the umbrella most the time. take it with you just in case. that impact for tomorrow we'll stay on the low side with the showers likely. thursday, more of the same highs only in the 60s with a good chance of shower activity on thursday. on friday, can't rule out a shower but i'm trying to leave friday dry. 66 p 76 degrees right now, saturday coming in at 77
6:19 pm
degrees. we've got our backyard weather coming up friday so i'm sure hoping it's dry. saturday and sunday right now a chance of showers on saturday, best chance of showers i think monday as a cold front makes its way our way. temperatures ahead of that back into the 80s. >> a close call for a police officer driving through some stormy weather down south. the officer was on an interstate in biloxi, miss miraculous last week when the bolt of lightning struck in front of him. it took out a chunk of concrete from a bridge. the officer said he was momentarily blinded by it but wasn't hurt. check out south dakota. a time-lapse video of a severe thunderstorm taking shape. this happened over a town called blackhawk. the photographer said she shot the video over 30 minutes and posted it online. it looks like the end of the world about to happen. south dakota or parts of it anyhow are expecting more rain and in parts there are flash flood warnings even today. that is impressive. >> it really is.

6:32 pm
injections can lead to major complications everything from kid any failure to heart attacks or or as we've just seen, even death. >> looking at weather now, i don't know if it's a meteorological term, but i would describe this day as downright yucky. doug, should we get used to this or what? i think we can, vance at least over the next 24 to 48 hours. then we'll see if things relax a little bit. but you're right, it was nasty if not yuck wri this morning and it's getting that way again right now. look at the rain just kind of move back into the area. another little disturbance moving up that's helping the rain to develop the clouds starting to lower across our region. take a look outside our studios in northeast you can see not much in the way of wind here, but the rain and the drizzle coming down, just a nasty looking shot across our region. and look where the rain is, right around portions of montgomery county, through prince george's county, heaviest rain through southern maryland southern anne arundel all the way to st. mary's, mechanicsville.
