new castle county police say they tried to pull the man over near philadelphia pike and washington street, but he didn't stop. instead, he crashed his car at the intersection, exited the vehicle, and ran. police caught up with the suspect, and confronted him, then shot and killed him. it happened near saint helena roman catholic church. skyfox was over both scenes yesterday. people who live nearby confirm they're typically quiet neighborhood turned chaotic yesterday, and they're still not sure why they want answers. >> i just heard pop pop pop pop pop, like eight shots in a row. >> they were working outside. they kind of looked over. there was a big commotion next-door. so this doesn't happen often here. >> new castle county police say some of their officers were taken to local hospitalization to get checked out. no word on any serious injuries as a result of the confrontation with the suspect, again, what led to

in wilmington, they're working along 495 this morning, northbound right near terminal avenue for the gang in south jersey, the work crews out along 295 and 42, and starting to see little drizzle roll through the area. so some of the roads could be just wet enough to make it a little slippery. we already had one accident on the city avenue ramp. that's gone. but some of the on and off ramp could be little slippery. and crash up in plymouth meeting butler pike at stean ton avenue. karen and tomorrow back to you. >> thank you so much. developing right now, there was a fatal shooting by police of a suspect. it happened in delaware. let's get right out to jenny joyce with what we know about this incident. jenny, happened right by a church? >> yes. it happened by a church, karen, actually two scenes involved. people that we talked to in the area of those scenes say it is rare to hear gunfire caught them off guard. they want to know exactly what happened and why. we still don't have those answers at this point. new castle county police tell us that it happened around 2:00 yesterday afternoon. they tell us they tried to
pull over a man, near philadelphia pike, and washington street, but he didn't stop. instead, he crashed his car at the intersection, exited the vehicle and ran. police caught up with the suspect, and confronted him. then shot and killed him. the shooting happened near saint helena roman catholic church. people who live nearby confirm they're typically quiet neighborhood turned chaotic yesterday. and they're still not sure why. >> i just heard pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, like eight shots in a row. >> my aunt and the other employees, that was working, there as well, so they were working outside. they kind of looked over. there was big commotion next-door. so i don't -- this doesn't happen often here. >> new castle county police say some of their officers were taken to local hospitalization to get checked out. no word on any serious injuries as a result of the confrontation with the suspect. was the suspect armed? what led to that initial vehicle stop?
those are still questions that we have for new castle county police, and we're hoping to get some answers as the morning develops. back to you guys. >> investigation continues, jenny joyce, this morning, jenny, thank youment opening statements begin today in the trial of david creato, jr. prosecutors say he killed his three year old son, brendan, in 2015. steve keeley at the superior court in camden, new jersey this morning. good morning, steve. >> reporter: well they pick 11 women, three men, for this jury so we'll have jury of 12 and two alternates to be chosen later on. than jury will not just see evidence here inside the courthouse in camden. the prosecution successfully won that argument couple of weeks ago, to take the jury on a day trip, outside, to the spot where three year old brendan creato's body was found. the prosecution doing that because it wants the jury to see and likely walk the .6 of a mile distance between david creato's apartment building in westmont, where brendan was last seen alive and the prosecution will surely argue
where he was killed to the spot along a stream by cooper river where his body was found hours after his dad called 911 to report him missing. now, the prosecution wants to counter any argument creato's lawyers going to try to make that the little boy wandered out of the apartment on his own, and walked all those blocks, in the dark, in his socks, down a dark unlit dirt path through woods to the spot where he was eventually found by a k9 dog. his socks, not even dirty, but clean, and not walked in outside. plus testimony likely from his mother who will say that brendan was afraid of the dark. now, we did that walk the other day. it was more than a half mile. it took us, as an adult, in the daylight, about 15 minutes. and it was even hard to find the spot down the path. we noticed the memorial where he just removed by the people who live over there over easter weekends, likely taken
away from the cooper river area so it doesn't influence the jury as creato's lawyer was worried about when he argued against taking the jury out of the building. but they'll go there. and that's quite unusual in a murder case, so we'll see how it goes. >> thanks, the whole case just hurt your heart. taking a look at other news right now, there was victim, man, just minding his own business, when all the sudden strangers approached him and then beat him unconscious. this is the video. pretty graphic. so a warning. police hope it could help track down the three guys behind this attack. they want to get him off the street. the victim says he can't remember all of what happened. but that simply he was walking out after restaurant, scene right there the 3500 block of b street, when all the sudden those guys come up. you can see them, they knock him to the ground and just start pounding away at him, one knocks him down so hard that he gets -- he becomes unconscious. so, they take everything in his pockets, as well. >> i was going into ain't view, that's it. >> broken nose? >> ya, broken nose.
>> orbital bone, too? >> yes. >> yes. >> one of them punched him with such force he fell immediately to the ground. one of the other males then proceed today kick him, punch him repeatedly while he was in completely defenseless position. >> so if you have any idea who those people are, there is a cleaner picture of each of the suspects in connection with this case, that's pretty clear, please call police. >> another beat to go tell you about there is one, of an older woman, 81 year old lady was just ringer around for her church when that guy according to police punch her. they say he was after a handbag, and he had cased her specifically when they were on the bus. so she gets off the 8400 block of thoron avenue, over in east mt. airy. and that's whether he attacks her. investigators say, he then jumped into a car, driven by an accomplice, who had followed the bus until that woman had gotten off. >> i'm senior citizen. so i don't like that. the same thing could happen to me. i don't like it at all.
>> predatory. it is alarming. if he can do this to 81 year old woman, he is capable of doing anything to anyone. >> so, there again is the suspect, so we did speak with the victim in this case, she told us off camera she is doing physically okay. >> very alarming. upenn is wrapping up its monitoring of off campus underground if a turn tis and sororities, task force making -- making recommendations on how the university should deal with the groups. upenn looking at the issue since november since an underground fraternity sent sexually suggestive party invitation to undergraduate women. problem in behavior in the past including high risk drinking. so under the new guidelines, groups will be required to provide the university with leader contacts, member rosters, and off campus residential addresses. they're also required to follow the university's alcohol and anti-hazing policies, educational program, on sexual assault, and other issues will also be available to those groups. now the recommendations will
house. and restricted hear include the sidewalks, roadways, and park land areas. the agency is reviewing security measures at the white house, after a man jumped a fence last month to gain access to the white house. >> really strong emotions there, boiling over, after a case of child abuse create that brawl. this is outside after court in milwaukee. now, a judge had just sentence add woman to seven years, for putting her boyfriends' little baby into scalding hot water. well the relatives that far baby, they were fear just. they say that sentence was too light and it got really physical. in the end four people were arrested. >> let's take it outside. that's exactly what dc residents are doing. some of them. >> escalating battle. they're just hanging it out there on the world for everybody to see with all of their banners. it is a banner battle. we'll tell you what the result is, after the break. congressman macarthur promised to protect our health care.
but when right-wing politicians tried to pass a disastrous health care repeal bill that raises costs and cuts coverage, macarthur wouldn't oppose them. macarthur wouldn't protect us from a bill that raises premiums and causes 24 million to lose their insurance. wouldn't oppose a massive "age tax" on people over 50. but supported a 600 billion tax break for the wealthy. tell tom macarthur -

people who already have it, can keep it. but you got to put up barriers to keep it 20 feet away from your property boundaries. this is going to be enforced only though if a neighbor complains. >> and we love our new jersey beaches. they're so great to get down there. you may be grossed out by what people found on them last year. >> nice to lounge out but pretty gross, talking condoms, even pink lawn flamingo, sample whatever clean ocean action environmental group volunteers pick up off the jersey shore. so reminder here, pick up anything that you leave there. >> they say they also found like dentures, fake mustache. >> few other gross stuff we don't need to mention. >> ya. bob ever find anything gross on the beach? >> no, but that's my toilet seat. i was wondering what happened to that. i'll be down later to pick it up. 4:47. looking live at the ben franklin parkway. again, the inner drives are now closed, so this is a different scenario, different traffic pattern than we had to
deal with yesterday morning from 20th street all the way up to the steps. so the outer drives of the parkway are open. but at times, only two lanes open, as you work your way, so try to avoid using the parkway, if you can, in or out of the city, especially, during the rush hours, because the kelly drive, also, limited, and the circle there in front of the art museum stems limited, as women. there is the blue staging or the movie theater, amphitheatre i guess they're setting up for the draft. it is not even happening until next weekend. let's go to the jam cams. they've been working out here in conshy, route 23, at fayette street. they're doing some paving. looks like they put in some sort of sewer line, or utility line across the roadway, underground, and putting that paving operation in effect. they will be out there in front of the mcdonald on conshy, working along the turnpike, couple of spots working here mid-county, working up on the northeast extension between quakertown and lansdale. and they're also working out here near valley forge, all of that work should be out by

trump banner right off his balance cone. >> i here is the dealing. the woman living in the apartment directly below his wasn't having it. so she put up banner of her own. take a look. you can see the trump banner right there, then below it, there is another banner, with a arrow that says: nope. the apartment build something right down the road from the capitol. and the woman who says she is a democrat got tired of living beneath that trump banner. but the banner war didn't end there. once she put up her own statement the guy living above her, women, he change that banner to a hillary for president one, so the woman took hers down. >> i felt like my message was sent. it was a little fulfilling to see hillary banner up there for awhile, took few pictures of that, so he switched it back out today. i think i will ' leave mine down for the timing. >> how do we ends the banner war? the owner of the apartment building says banner ban. resident can no longer hand those banners as of may 1st. >> can you imagine, you stamp on the floor, bang on the
