man may perhaps be a threat to himself, maybe the other people in his home as well. it all happened because this man was on the phone with someone and that person on the other end of the line felt that he was in a mental health crisis situation. so, they contacted police. police were able to get an emergency custody order. that means that they can bring that person in and have them evaluated, do a mental health evaluation, perhaps maybe do ahold if that is necessary for a couple of days until things settle down but when police did get to the residence to try to serve that order, apparentlily the man decided he did not want to comply, did not want to cooperate and that is where we pretty much stand at this point. again, we do not believe at least from the information that i'm being told in this man has threatened to harm the children in the home but he has threatened to harm himself and they always worry in circumstances like that, that things could perhaps go in the wrong
so, we know that negotiators have been on the phone, have been in contact with the man, working with him trying to bring this all to a safe conclusion. we know fairfax county police also have received extensive training in the last few years in deescalation techniques and that is what they're trying to do in this southern part of fairfax county, the stratford landing community here in that fort hunt. we'll send it back to you guys in the studio for now. >> mel, thanks very much. also breaking this morning from that cleveland, ohio, the massive manhunt continues for this man accused of killing an elderly man and then posting video of that murder on facebook. >> police say he then took to facebook live to boast about the killing and to make matters even worse police say it appears he chose his victim at random. >> wisdom joins us from the studio with the latest. >> reporter: good morning steve and holly. this is a truly disturbing crime. here suspect's picture 37-year-old steve stevens. police are warning people to stay away from him if they see

video before he used facebook live to talk about killing several people. now, in a statement, facebook says this is a horrific crime and we do not allow this kind of content on facebook. we work hard to keep a safe environment on facebook and are in touch with law enforcement in emergencies. cleveland police are calling for stevens to current himself in to authorities. >> there are people out there that care about steve and want to see this not go any further. >> reporter: now, police say they have no evidence of any truth behind stevens claim of killing other people but they believe he killed mr. godwin after getting into an argument with a woman he mentions in that horrific video of the killing. that woman released a statement overnight expressing her prayers to the victim's family and says that the stevens she knows is "kind and loving." police think stevens may have fled out of state and warn people in pennsylvania new york indiana and michigan to be on alert. he was last seen driving a white ford fusion. steve,

and law enforcement families. kids here will also get to take home another tradition, the keepsake wooden egg. i'm told this year they are the color gold which if you've ever been to any trump blarts you know he does like that color and we do expect the president and first lady to be here later this morning. not exactly sure when but we expect them to be here at this event. so as long as the rain holds off it should be an excellent one. back to you guys. >> i have a question for you. i know you're in the area where they're going to do the roll. usually there are lots of other activities set up all over the lawn. is there -- is that going on this morning, too, or is it just the roll? >> reporter: no, i believe we do have -- there's going to be story telling. i've heard there might be yoga. we are still in the setup phases so not exactly sure where everything is going out here but you can see there's a lot of activity out here and a lot of people kind of huddled in activity corners where i believe those activities will take place. so, a lot going on here.

at your top stories on a monday. the manhunt continues for this man. 37-year-old steve stevens. police in cleveland say he shot and killed a 74-year-old man at random yesterday then posted a video of the alleged killing to facebook. initially it was thought stevens live streamed it all but facebook later said he actually up loaded a video and that it was not streamed life. stevens did, however, live stream a separate video in which he claimed to have killed several other people. police have found no evidence of that claim. developing overnight a man is hold up inside of a house in the fort hunt area in fairfax county. negotiates there are right now because the man is refusing to come out of the house and authorities say there two young children signed the home. police have an emergency custody order. they are communicating with the man but worried he may be a threat to himself or to others. today a time honored tradition takes place at the white house the trump family will
egg roll. 21,000 people are expected to andy t live picture from the lawn as we speak. the easter egg roll tradition goes back to the early 1800's when first lady dolly madison invited local children to egg rolling events to the grounds of the capitol building. >> let's stick on the easter egg roll theme speaking of white house much this year's event obviously a little scaled down perhaps from in the past. few bumps along the way including the they can got ordered late. is it ding or the administration's public image. media reporter for politico and fox5 political contributor hadas gold. >> let's talk about the easter egg roll. obviously every administration will do it differently. >> right. >> not all there to see how past administrations that done into it. what do we expect this year. >> slightly scaled operation than what it was before. the reason this is getting a lot of attention there's a big article in the new york times about how kind of behind they were in the
part of the reason is that the first lady is not physically in washington, d.c. and she's not taking on as big of a role as other first ladies have. she's still obviously in new york and with her son as he finishes school. but what the problem with that, though, people are worried the easter egg roll wouldn't be as big as it used to be it doesn't have the same number of celebrities perhaps as the obama years they had. but we were even seeing things like the company that traditionally makes those commemorative pegs people can buy or get at the actual egg role were twe tweeting administration, hour production deadline is coming up and we need to you order them so we can get them in. that was a very public the tweet has since been taken down a public signal we were little bit behind on this year's egg roll. >> when the tweets come from the white house, we definitely notice them and when the tweets go to the white house we notice them as well. >> little interesting to put the business out there, but it also makes you wonder if that's the only way they're able to get the white house's attention. >> right. it's one of the biggest events. it seems like it's jt
roll. it's not like a summit with some foreign leader. but it does, you know, you want to see the white house us usualy being way on top of things even for the smallest events nor nory the white house has everything planned out and months in advance with every single little detail include wrack people are standing figured out. so people were wondering what is is this signal for how the white house operates. if the easter egg roll, for example, isn't as fully planned in advance as it could have been. >> not going to solve world piece. perception obviously is key it makes a big difference. saturday night snl saturday night live according to variety magazine had record ratings. they brought back the sean spicer character, of course, they had the president, they had jar rad kushner portrayed bite guest host. they covered their basis. variety this is this is rating gold. everybody is watching. is it? is it something they have struck gold with because the white house doesn't seem to enjoy it. so who really wins in this situation? >> snl definitely winning in this situation. obviously alec baldw
alec baldwin would be now a full-time cast member of snl even though he's been around for such a long time. and this is clearly something that works for them and it's kind of like a circular firing squad that keeps going back and forth. snl will do it. sean spicer gets asked about it in the press briefing we hear reports from the white house about donald trump doesn't like that spicer's portrayed by a woman and just continues on and continues on. and it's very clear that the snl people are probably following all of the news and all of our twitter feeds just as closely as we are of each other. it's cave coming into every saturday night. >> they found the formula. for snl it's working right now. speaking of the press conference, what do you think will dominate the headlines today. >> probably north korea a lot of action vice-president pence is there in the region right now. and there's a lot of worry. there was a front page analysis today in the new york times about how this is a slow burning cuban missile crisis probably going to come to us quickly and a lot of fear amongst analyst
people about what north korea's planning to do next and this is going to be a big test for the president. >> it's interesting. we heard the vice-president, of course, his comments this morning talking tough when it comes to north korea. but it's difficult because when you talk to the foreign policy experts this is -- you're dealing much more with the unknown with north korea than you are with many other nations if not every other nation. >> right. unknown it's unpredictable leader, and i mean if the united states had it their way chinese would take a bigger role and really try to control it. as donald trump warned via tweet he's not afraid to take matter noose us hands and take care of it ours. on snl kind of interesting sean spicer character played by melissa mccarthy was joking tomorrow we'll strike north korea. i know some people were like, that's a little bit too close to the truth. >> yeah. not that that's going to happen. >> right. the fear is definitely there. i think way lot of people. because of the uncertainty that we're dealing with north korea's leadership. thanks hadas. good to see you this morning. >> great to be here. >> 7:35. es

several blocks away down a couple of turns. they're trying to keep everyone very far back as they work this very sensitive scene here. we have heard neighbors telling us that those who are closer to the home itself could hear overnight negotiators on their bull horns talking to the homeowner asking him to open the door, to come to the window. to come out with his hands up and most importantly don't hurt the children. that is the big concern here. sources tell me fairfax county police the man has made no specific threats toward the children. he has threatened to harm himself. this all began around 8:00 o'clock last night. he was on the phone with someone who felt perhaps he was having a mental health crisis. that person then contacted fairfax county police. police then were able to get an emergency custody order which would allow them to bring him in for some mental health evaluation. make sure that things are okay. but when they came here to ser
that emergency custody order, the man then refused to leave the home and that is the situation that we are in right now. there were several sirens that we heard overnight as well and again neighbors saying that they here and there are able to hear the communications between the police and the man inside the house. but at this point, it's still pretty much a situation in hold as they wait to hope that they can bring this to a safe resolution. live in the for hunt area of fairfax county, i'm melanie alnwick fox5 local news. >> stick to hash headlines right now in cleveland ohio the search continues for a man suspect of shooting another man and posting video of the killing to fac facebook. now police initially said the suspect steven stevens live streamed the murder but then said facebook said he posted a video of the murder afterward. it shows what appears to be stevens gunning down a 74-year-old man robert godwin, sr. >> from what we can tell now just a random person he pick

full so they moved up. well, that caused a big issue. the flight attendant asked the pair to return to their ticketed seats. the couple says they complied. now united has a totally different side of the story. united says the couple reportedly tried to sit in more expensive seats for which they had not paid. the airline also said the couple would not follow night crew instructions. united released this statement saying, "we're disappoint the any time a customer has an experience that doesn't mess up to their expectations these parse jess peteedly to sit in upgraded seat hemoglobin they did not purchase and they would not follow crew instructions to return to their assigned seats. the couple was rebooked on another flight the next morning. meanwhile, the lawyer for the man who was dragged off a different united flight last week says, united has agreed to save evidence in the case. so a hearing set for today has been called off. a lawsuit has not yet been filed but the attorney said a lawsuit is still like
attorneys also say that dr. david dao got a concussion a broken knows and two lot of teen when he was forcibly taken off that plane. former miss venezuela is suing united airlines after she was handcuffed mid flight. the incident happened back in 2013. but she's just now coming out with the story. carmen, says she was arguing with her now ex-husband when he slapped her after she tried to sleep on his shoulder. he then told a flight attendant that she was invading his personal space. she was then moved several times first to another seat in first class and then back to a economy and then she was forced to the back of the plane where she had to sit near an off duty police officer. after seeing the video of dr. dao being forced off flight this month, she decided to speak up. she is seeking damages from the airline. after all of this drama unfolding airline has actually decided to change their policies. the company will no longer allow crew members to dpl
passengers on board airplane. new policy will require must ride bookings at least an hour before departure instead of up until the plain leaves. so -- i think there's a little bit of everything going on here. >> that's lot to take in. >> real stories and then you have people taking advantage of the situation and -- >> there might be some opportunity tifts there but also those and it's been in lot of business journals over the weekend and they say this is -- this was basically a storm that was brewing that was ready to blow up. >> long time at the time coming. >> when you look back at the history if a company has a lot of customer complaints at some point you have to take look at yourself. >> right. they created the situation. right. >> there you go. >> they created the environment now deal with it. >> there you go. >> fingers crossed it will get better. more turbulence for united that's probably the best line of the day. >> it's a great opportunity for other airlines to be over courteous. >> absolutely. >> and they are taking advantage of that with the some of the commercials and some of the ads that they're putting out. the other airlines

weekend. the film behind that at number two is star wars episode 7,529,000,000. only talking about three and a half million dollars here. so when the final numbers come out today, it could be different. we will see but right now, the estimates have it being the number one of all time. it beat jurassic world, star wars episode seven. here's a couple things to note, though. very interesting. in china, the film made $190 million. star wars episode seven did not open in china in its first weekend so that's definitely a factor here as to why this blue away the star wars number possibly. but this movie also took a drop domestic klee here at the united states. it only -- i say 100 only did $100 million in the us that's a little bit low compared to what seven did. 147 in its first weekend. so here's the thing. this is a big deal. this record stands. this will be the highest opening in the history of sin in a ma i think it's massive. >> don't you think that's
it is. >> ticket sales. >> yeah. >> of course. >> apples to apples. >> it is interesting to think a movie like that in eighth in its franchise made a half a billion dollars this weekend. >> what water budget on it. >> i'm assuming probably close to 200, maybe 150 to 200. other interesting things beauty and beast made 13 million this weeks. box office news. coming now is the melissa mccarthy return to snl as sean spicer. they apparently snl had the biggest ratings they've had since february. because they did this new thing they aired live from coast to coast. so while it aired here live at 11:30, people were watching it live on the west coast at 8:30. and this is obviously one of the highlights from the show alec baldwin was back as trump he did elimination round for top adviser where he pinned steve bannon versus jared kushner and jared kushner ended up winning this and you'll see jimmy fallon playing kushner there. there you go. melissa mccarthy did return as sean spicer as the easter bunny, and this is in reference to
