and over, 28 times point blank, as the bullet shells likely also hit the man's body and rolled off, just after the bullets went into his body. he was hit in the face, head, chest, and legs, just past midnight. >> we didn't hear from scott small, but he was also at earlier scene just about four and a half hours before, just a few blocks away in the same neighborhood, frandford, right at 7-eleven, at the parking lot at 20 after 7:00. despite all of the cameras pointed on the parking lot, and all of the people who go into the 7-eleven, right under the frankford market elevated train, two guys with two guns shot at two other guys after an argument somebody heard. one of the guys was killed. one of the guys critical. both guys would have been killed if it wasn't for the
philadelphia police showing up real fast, and getting both to emergency rooms, sadly, only one survived. they don't even know the id of the man killed, because he had no identification on him, there are real time crime cameras there, and karen, thomas, what that tells you, is they put those cameras where there has already ban lot of violence, hopefully they have some video. these two guys took off in a car. are they related? because where they were, and the proximity in time? possibly. but if not, we've got three killers throughout with three guns still on the loose. >> you said it earlier, details will have you shaking your head, steve, thank you. time now 5:05, to more breaking news there is time out of cobbs creek, one man is killed, when his car you see right there veered out of control and slammed into a parked car and a tree. emergency crews racing to the scene at 58th street and baltimore avenue, all of this taking place just after midnight. fortunately, the 52 year old driver died at the hospital, short time later. >> 5:05, happening today, we think it will be a big day in that bill cosby trial.
it was pretty explosive yesterday with the attorneys on both sides, having to be rained in by the judge, cameras were not allowed in court but our report remembers therefore all of the action, lauren johnson, a recap of what happened and what we expect today, lauren? >> the judge had to threaten to call in more deputies if the two sides could not maintain some decor up. even big column bye was different than we've seen him in the past, slow, quiet, vision, memory problems. according to his lawyers, the 79 year old yelled out in the courtroom on several occasions, even when the questions weren't being directed at him. >> prosecutors are trying to show he had a history every drugging young women, andrea constand filed complaint against cosby, once her friends and mentor, over an encounter at his home in philadelphia. but, prosecutors say there are dozens of other women who tell
very similar stories, and they should be allowed to testify in the spring trial to show cosby's prior bad act. celebrity lawyer gloria allred represents many of those women. >> if in fact a plan, a scream, a design to incapacitate victims, because they were unable to consent or not consent having been incapacitated they could be sexually assaulted because they were vulnerable, then that would be relevant, that's what's important, that's why the testimony of these witnesses could be considered to be important. >> well, the judge ultimately ruled that cosby's lawyers could identify 11 of those women by name since they
already shared their stories publicly and their names are out there, so prosecutors clash with the defense early on about using their names because every intimidation tactic. gloria allred will join us on the show this morning to talk about more about why she says these victims' testimony is crucial to this case. karen, thomas? >> all right, that should be very interesting, thank up, lauren. >> we should mention on good day also celebrity attorney gloria allred, you see right there, she will be joining us for levin view, that's coming up this morning on good day. let's talk about the transition here at 5:08. president-elect, not certainly the right video, but donald trump continues his thank you tour at a rally in wisconsin tuesday. he told the crowd he believed the polls and was planning to lose on election night. trump also touted his new secretary of state, nominee, exxon mobile executive rex tillerson. he calls tillerson one. greatest and most skilled global business leaders every our time. >> former governor rick perry

a direct line of communication with our future president if we truely want change. >> and then there is one that talks about his political ambitions, you see it right there, 2024. some think that's the year he may want to run for the white house. because you remember of course he made headlines when he said woe run in 2020, now pushing it back four years on that one since the meeting with trump. >> well, meanwhile, democratic and republican lawmakers want a deeper look into findings by the intelligence community, that russia tried to interfere with the election. fox news has learned the director of national intelligence is concerned about one of the key findings that the russians interfered to help donald trump win. lawmakers say not even clear if russia was hine the hacks, any hats the white house urging caution while the investigation continues. >> you have the. >> two months ago, revealing their unanimous conclusion

information that this was a robbery, so we're not sure of the motive. all we know is the fact that there is 28 spent shell casings, and many of them are in such close proximity to the bod at this appears that the shooter was standing over the body or close to the body and fired multiple shots in fact, the hit so many times appears clearly to be an execution type homicide. >> was hit in the head, face, chest and legs. >> right in a busy 7-eleven parking lot, right in prime time, right under the frankford market elevated train, two killers with two guns killing two men, critically injuring the second, police rushed him to the hospital. police did not even have an identification, let alone motive in that murder, because
they heard from witnesses, that two guys were arguing but the guy killed had no identification on them. just figure he, a friend, with the man critically wound in the his 30's, hope that man survives never to explain exactly what was going on, and maybe this was just a fight in a parking lot over a parking spot, but police doubt it. >> hopefully they get better under standing just beyond wilds. steve, thank you. >> time right now 5:35. bill cosby will be back in court today, this is day one of his pretrial hearing, shouting matches yesterday, got really heated there. the judge had to rain him in. >> going right out to lauren johnson in norristown outside the courthouse, getting ready for day two, lauren. >> hopefully more calm, lawyers yelling loudly here inside the courtroom in montgomery county, the judge calling the behavior un civil, all of the bickering over publicizing the names of the dozen of women accusing cosby of sexual assault. cosby's lawyers don't want the
women to be allowed to testify at his spring trial. the high steaks hearing was as eventful as ever, from the very beginning, lawyers from both sides got heated over the accusations from the other side about the women's names. cosby's defense team says many of those women have gone public with their accusations, so their names are already out there. his lead lawyer saying they are witnesses in a trial. they are not children. all of the back and forth over whether they should testify against cosby in a case that started over a decade ago. then temple university employee, andrea constand, filed a complaint against her friend, and mentor, over an encounter at his home. authorities reopened the case late last year when a lot more women came forward, many of them represented by celebrity attorney gloria allred. >> whether these alleged prior witnesses will be permitted to testify at the trial, that is very important if they can't, it is miss constand's
testimony against mr. cosby, one-on-one. >> lack every consent if the accuse letter testify to by other witnesses. >> last week all red said her client have a duty to testify if the court wants to hear from them. she called the defense's dismissal of their accounts out of context, and just plane wrong. cosby also in rare form yesterday, both in and out of the courtroom, he was overheard telling a deputy don't taze me, bro as he walked into the courtroom here in montgomery county. very different cosby than we've seen, thomas, karen, over the last few weeks. >> all right, it will be very interesting, lauren, thank you. >> this strange story, just got stranger. you may remember us telling you someone was stealing address numbers off of homes in fishtown in kensington, stealing the one's and zero's,
