6:09 pm
we continue that today, because of the clouds and rain. if you're heading to the nats' game, a bit of a wet one. most of it light rain, with the exception of southern maryland, st. mary's county, the northern neck, this is the area that will see the heaviest rain moving in. you can see what i'm talking about, the yellows, darker green, that's the heavy rain. everywhere else, just light rain, but it will be steady at times as we continue to move on through here. there's more rain on the map. i mean, look at this map. a big system here. another big system up toward the north and west. this one moves in during the night into thursday. i'll update you on that, what to expect and how it could impact your memorial day weekend in a few minutes. >> thanks, doug. too soon to know what caused a fire in maryland today. firefighters found flames coming from the basement. we're told that hoarding conditions in the house led fuel to the fire. crew his to fight from the outside because of the amount of

6:14 pm
6:15 pm
the terror attack in manchester highlights the vulnerabilities of so-called soft targets. those are places where a small group of terrorists with a simple plan can cause large-scale devastation. recent examples include the airport departure and arrival halls in brussels, and istanbul. restaurants and concert halls in paris, a christmas market in berlin, the boardwalk in nice, a nightclub in orlando, and an office party in san bernardino. >> soft targets are one of the hardest things to defend against. hence the name,
6:16 pm
of security for a soft target. it's a public area. >> a key defense is for the public to remain vigilant. experts say we should all be suspicious of someone who makes threats or acts erratically. someone who seems to be gathering information about shift change or security procedures or anyone who seems to test security with false alarms. pete williams joins us now with the latest on the investigation into that manchester attack. >> let's start with the suspect, what do we know about him? >> not enough is the simple answer. that's why the british authorities have raised their terror threat level to the highest point and it's the third time they've done that in their history. he was born in the united kingdom, his parents, we're talking about salman abedi, who is 22, his parents are from libya. the mother goes back and forth. the father travels a lot. but they're trying to figure out the big question. did he act
6:17 pm
obviously there's still concern they don't know the answer to that question. otherwise, they wouldn't be raising the threat level. they simply don't know enough about him. they've questioned several other people. they're obviously looking at all of his contacts, but they don't feel that they have enough information to say whether he acted alone, or whether others are out there might be planning similar attacks. >> we know isis is claiming responsibility. walk us through what happens next in this investigation. >> the isis claim of responsibility, it's hard to know what to make of that. they in recent years have much more quickly claimed responsibility without offering any specifics. they didn't offer his name, they didn't offer anything that wouldn't be publicly known from the news reports. so it's hard to know what that claim of responsibility means. the u.s. intelligence officials say they can't verify it was an isis connection. i think that's part of the myy
6:18 pm
he get the bomb components, did he have any training, has he traveled overseas? did he go anywhere where he might have gotten training on how to build bombs? was he inspired? what kind of things was he looking at online? those are big questions. >> we none britain they've already taken security to the highest level. any evidence at all of upgrades in the u.s. or elsewhere in europe? >> elsewhere in europe, many other countries are taking precautions and i guess that's the right word here. the department of homeland security isn't suggesting that local law enforcement around the country do anything different. so what you see is in the minds of police departments, what they think is best. new york city does what it always does. it started putting officers on the street last night. it will have them at concert venues, broadway plays, and then it varies from city to city. boston will do more at concerts.
6:19 pm
at music venues, but there's no known threat in the united states. so if you're a local police chief in indianapolis, how do you decide what to do? >> or if you have tickets to an upcoming concert, how do you decide what to do? >> thanks, pete. >> lester holt will be reporting live from manchester, england, for "nbc nightly news," that's right after this broadcast. new information tonight about a police-involved shooting at a park in manassas. this happened last friday. the officers who shot luis torres moleeno will not face charges. two police officers shot him after he pointed a weapon at them. detectives now say that website was a bb gun. investigators say the officers acted appropriately out of fear for their lives. torres molina is out of the hospital and facing charges. the u.s. government is suing fiat chrysler. they're alleging that some of its trucks and suvs cheated on emissions tests.
6:20 pm
the justice department said the automaker used software on some of its diesel engines that allow allow allowed them to emit more pollution on the road than on lab testing. about 100,000 ram pick-ups and cheap grand cherokees from the 2014 to 2016 model years are feeling the impact of this. fiat chrysler said it did not install the software with the intention of cheating on tests. last year, the government filed a similar lawsuit against volkswagen. that company pled guilty to criminal charges and it launched a buy-back program. a local woman is out one iphone and a bunch of money as the counterfeit crime unravelled. but there were several red flags along the way. police are warning against movie money which is being passed off as the real thing. and the effort to

6:29 pm
now at 6:30, the man behind the terror attack in manchester has been identified as police continue to hunt for accomplices. the suspect was known to police there. he was killed in the bombing outside a concert hall last night. >> children were among the 22 pe
6:30 pm
dozens more were injured. joining us now, nbc's matt bradley, who is outside the arena in manchester with the latest on this investigation. what are you learning, matt? >> reporter: thanks, jim and doreen. we just in the past couple of hours, saw theresa may, the british prime minister, address the nation and tell them that she's actually raising the threat level from severe to critical. those words sound very similar, but what that means is that an attack is going from likely to imminent in the eyes of british security officials. now, why would they raise the threat level? because the sophistication of the weapon that was used. and this is what security experts believe, because it was a bomb that was used, and not just a lone wolf attack, a knife or a gun, it implies there must have been help for this man who was killed, who perpetrated this heinous crime at the arena behind me last night. if there was someone who helped him make the bomb, that means there's probably additional su
6:31 pm
large. this is what security experts believe is the thinking behind theresa may's decision to raise that threat level. that also means the manhunt is continuing nationwide for anyone who could have conspired with the gentleman, salman abedi, who was 22 years old, and was killed after perpetrating this attack that killed 22, mostly young women and their parents at this venue last night. the city of manchester is also trying desperately to recover. i was walking around here this morning and went to a hotel nearby, and the lobby was filled with dozens of little girls, mostly teenagers who were still wearing their ariana grande t-shirts, and many of them looking shell-shocked as they watched the footage of the attack from the night before, playing over and over again on the bbc and other channels here. so, there's a lot of talk of fortitude, but there's also a lot
6:32 pm
jim, doreen? >> what a terrible way to have to live in the next couple days. thank you, matt, we appreciate it. much more coverage tonight on "nbc nightly news" at 7:00 with lester holt, who is anchoring from manchester. >> and that terror attack in britain also top of mind for people here. we wanted to know, are you concerned about going to large public events? so far, about half of you say no, you're not. there's still time to vote on the nbc washington facebook page. a woman wanted to make some money for a trip, but wound up being scammed out of hundreds of dollars. now police are looking into a case involving funny money, that at first glance looked pretty close to the real story. pat collins has the story. >> what is it? >> a hundred dollar bill. >> are you sure? >> yeah. >> what's it look like? >> what it look like? >> what's it look like to you? >> it look like a hundred dollar

bill. >> reporter: at first glance, it looks pretty authentic. but when you get close, there are signs, like inscriptions. >> for motion picture use only. >> yeah, it's a hundred dollar bill. >> reporter: even ben franklin's arched eyebrow gives you a hint something's not right here. >> what kind of bill? >> a hundred. >> would you give me two 50s for it? >> no. >> five 20s? >> no. >> reporter: they call it movie money, and police say thieves are using this to buy things from unsuspecting online sellers. >> you feel like you were taken? >> oh, yeah, very taken advantage of, for sure. >> reporter: hannah burley sold her iphone for five $100 bills, but when she went to deposit the money in the atm, return to sender. as you stuck the money into the atm -- >> yeah, nothing. >> it came back? >> yeah. >> and back? >> yeah. >> and then you looked real
6:34 pm
>> i saw at the bottom of it, bottom of one of the bills, it said for prop use only. >> reporter: police say you have to be real careful when you're making cash deals with total strangers. >> if you're going to do an online transaction, bring somebody with you, or let somebody know where you're going and meet at one of our exchange ends, at the police station. >> reporter: remember, just because it's green, doesn't make it money. in montgomery county, pat collins, news4. >> thanks, pat. a promising young rapper is being remembered tonight. she died last week in a car crash on suitland parkway near forestville road. london dior's family is receiving friends right now at the cedar hill funeral home on pennsylvania avenue. the rapper and two of her friends were leaving a recording session early in the morning on may 15th, when her car collided with a jeep. all three people involved were killed at the scene.
