that man was significantly injured. the department's canine policy changed. he said his family will forgive that's what his mother would want. real guns will not be used in further training operations. >> in many police training it's standard for officers and citizens to leave any loaded weapons at the door before any kind of trainin a retired tampa police officer told us real guns are never used in their training exercises. fox's crystal clark is digging deeper into what was supposed to happen during that kind of role play in punta gorda. crystal, you've actually been through one of these? >> crystal: yes, this time last year i tried out tampa police shooter program. usually there are two types of fake weapons, these are called blue guns and comes in larger
situation a. r. 15. these are solid plastic. they can't do any harm. however the weapon of choice is actually called a simunition. and those can easily be mistaken for the real thing. >> stop, police, don't move! >> what? what are you talking about? >> it looks and sounds realistic. but look closely at the gun used in this shooting simulation. it's a training tool known as a simunition. >> they provide a click that you can hear it go off. >> they produced this training video with lee a roundtable. in his 30 years with tampa police it was always a priority with officers and citizen groups to keep loaded guns out of the training area. >> whether concealed or not concealed nobody can have a gun. >> last summer i underwent a virtual shooting simulator at tpd. training is meant to put people in a highly stressful real life
fast. that's why it's too dangerous to have real guns in arm's length even for an officer. >> all of a sudden you see a gun being produced. you yell gun, gun, put the gun down. it's easy to get caught up in the scenario fyou have a gun in your ankle holster or under your shirt, on your side, you just by instinct go for it. >> there are usually training inspectors on site-specifically to check each weapon and make sure nothing gets mixed up. he says it's been decades since tpd has used the real thing very popular. but before that we used real guns with blanks. >> the officer in punta gorda believed he was shooting blanks when he pointed a gun at a citizen, tragically taking her life. >> i reached out to punta gorda police requesting a copy of their standard procedure for the training academy. they said no specific policy exists. however, this is designed to be
portion, the most important role playing scenario as the last interactive activity of the night. right now they say it's unclear what steps they will take to make sure it doesn't happen again. however, they do not plan to use any real weapons in the future. cynthia? >> a lot of questions to be answered, still. thanks a lot, crystal clark. >> a shooting death in hills borrow county has a strange twist tman who was shot and killed today actually killed a man 15 years ago in another road rage fox 13's josh cascio is live in dover where this morning's shooting happened. josh, fill in the details for us here. >> josh: well, chris, tonight we're hearing from the victim's wife from that 2001 incident. she tells us in her words her husband's killer basically experienced car may and she says he got what was coming to him. let's recap what happened in 2001. gary durham and timothy gibbs. they get into a road rage

late today with a very active sea breeze. and back to our classic summer pattern. watch the clouds build. still looking good around 3:00. and, yeah, all of a sudden you can see the clouds really just get going and a couple of shelf clouds moving over the bay. some heavy rain. kind of scooted just east of tampa. the heavy stuff is over by plan city and then moving inland through central pasco up to hernando. now, there's been a persistent band of rain in the gulf. this is the same area of rain being generated by which is thankfully moving away. so tomorrow i think we just go back to sunshine early in the day with building clouds along the sea breeze and showers and thundershowers likely. there's still a little leftover rain up in citrus but that's gone buy 11:30, 11:45 and that's that. sprinkles down buy annamaria, that's that. rest of the time we stay partly cloudy. temperatures today finally getting back into the 90s.
95 in sea bring, 95 after a long stretch of clouds and cooler trem ps back to the august sun and back to the 90s. low pressure way back in louisiana is producing rain here for us. the rain in the gulf kind of scoots away and we stay partly cloudy to clear tonight. and right now, temps are in the 70s to near 80 and typically this time of year and this time of night temperatures not really a big deal. they're usually in the 70s to near 80. this map is in the rust red doll color. we still have deep moisture over us. but it slowly moves away. and we're just left with a south east wind and certainly enough moisture to support afternoon storms. and as is the case was today, nearly any one of those storms can be and will be locally heavy and maybe a hint of some dryer weather trying to come in from the southeast but i don't see really any significant change
partly cloudy as the rain ends and tomorrow is a claix sea breeze day with storms ending over the bay by 10:00 at night. and then on friday it's another sea breeze day with storms along the west coast late in the day. they're done. we do it again over the weekend as daytime highs stay in 290s. and we talked about the tropics at 10:00. still quiet as dry air continues to kind of blow off the continent of africa and the chances of tropical development for the next four to look pretty small, which is good. 80 dew point, 76. southwest winds at 6. there's low pressure spinning here that gave us the wet weekend. and then you have kind of dry air east of the state. besides that, it's just a warm and summery night in the south. raleigh's 81. birmingham's 81. little rock's 85. dallas still 93. kansas city is 88 degrees at 10:00 their time. any leftover rain ending
