way you are going to get anywhere close to the art museum or that parkway. also, the vine expressway, ramps, to the parkway, are closed through the weekend. that's going to try traffic up. and lays it up, we got the penn relays, specking about 50,000 people into the franklin field, by 10:00 a.m. today. so that's going to bring a lot of extra volume, exiting the schuylkill, at south, at university, and of course, heavy traffic in that franklin field area. karen, thomas, back over to you. >> bob, thank you. we are following this breaking news, new developments out of delaware, where that stand-off is still going on after a state trooper was gun down at wawa while confronting two suspect. that trooper, we know, 32 year old stephen ballard. he's been on the force for eight years, we know that one suspect is in custody, while the man who police say killed him is still holdup in a home. so they are there. now we have learned some new information. >> we've been following this story for the past 18 hours, our steve keeley is near the
scene this morning, where the suspect is barricaded. steve, what's the latest? >> reporter: well to make it sadder corporal ballard just got married in january we learned. we're in the parking lot where a lot of the gunman's neighbors one of them kindly just made a bagel and coffee run, and they all got together and had what they thought was an odd community breakfast, but all hanging together again at ten after 6:00 this will be 18 hours since corporate stephen ballard died in the line every duty. so that is a long barricade situation. since i last talk to you, we got our first official update about the blast that we have heard all night from neighbors, and i'm on the phone again with sue, whose husband was with me here in the parking lot. and he just left for work after not getting home from work yesterday. so he spent the night here in the parking lot. and he's a loyal employee. he said, hey, who knows when this will end.
i'm going to work, sue has been stuck in the house alone. she has been our ian ear witness. sue, i know i talk to you briefly before we went on the air. tell our viewers what has been happening say the past hour, if nothing, let them know. >> okay, absolutely nothing. i mean, the sun is coming up, the birds are chirping, and i don't hear or see a thing. >> but before that, from about quarter to 2:00, and specially at 4:00 a.m., for our people just watching us right now, at 6:00 a.m. what happened overnight? >> well around one clock, well at first earlier than that there was an explosion where apparently they sent a robot to the door to send some type of explosive in to break the door down. and the person didn't come out. then at the started about 1:00 t every, maybe, 30 minute, there was about five big explosions.
and then some little bit of gunfire, and i think honestly there was probably a total of about 20 explosions. some very loud. >> we are seeing some police activity around here again. but again, what the delaware state police have told us, in their latest news release, was at 4:00 a.m., this gunman continued to shoot at the officers trying to talk him out every his house, then they blew out what they said were numerous windows, and those are the blasts you heard, sue, concussion grenades, whatever kind of explosive devices they're using, and again, sue, just to let you know, we are seeing more police going into your area, right now, behind the strip mall where we are less than about quarter mile away from you, sue mentioned to us, for you folks at home, just watching us, that when these blasts were being done by the state police, setting off car alarms, thanks again it, will stay in touch, keep safe, as i said earlier, keep
down when you hear that gunfire going off. so that explains what she was telling us earlier, she heard gunfire, and the state police confirmed, that it was indeed this guy shooting at them, at 4:00 a.m., and if you do the math, that's 16 hours after the trooper was shot, he is not sleeping either. and he's not giving up. they're not going in, getting any more troopers or local police officers killed. we will keep you updated f we hear anything we'll get right back on the air, guys? >> some tense moments, we wait on any word, steve keel think morning, steve, thank you. >> also ahead this morning, a late night verdict in another trooper tragedy. the sentence handed down to eric frein. >> we need your opinion. no joke, just over a month sexual assault trial bill cosby says he wants to revive his consider career, seriously.

some clouds around this morning. it is 61 degrees, we just hit our sunrise at 6:06. sunset is at 7:52. so for the penn relays, the draft, the phillies game, all of that, a high close to or maybe even reaching 80 degrees. bob kelly, we've been waiting tore this for a long time. >> we've bin -- been waiting. live look, at the closure of the 42 ramps to 295. and overturned tractor-trailer spilled its load of orange juice and fuel this morning, what we are looking at here is the clean-up operation, there is the scene of the accident and the fuel spill and the orange juice, all over the roadway, so let's go to the maps. right now, this is causing gridlock for folks trying to get into philadelphia, off the 42 freeway, and 295. your best bet, from the neighborhoods, use the black horse pike, that will connect you with 295 and the turnpike, route 130 is a good option,
even the new jersey turnpike north. now, we got talcony palmyra bridge in the middle of an opening right now, so we're stacked on both sides. as we've been mentioning, the drives are closed coming in toward philadelphia. spring garden, all of the cross streets closed on the ben franklin parkway. the penn relays, they expect 50,000 people by 10:00 a.m., at franklin field, and already starting to see the jams, exiting the schuylkill at 30th, you'll see jams exiting at south, and if there was ever a day to try mass transit, today's the day. the subway, market frank forwards, the regional rails, even if you're not going to the three events we've been talking about, just to get to work, it is going, mass transit, the train ride, is the way to go. karen, thomas, back over to you. >> just learned officers came under fire while trying to get the man who allegedly shot and killed trooper stephen ballard yesterday an at a wawa. >> do have team coverage, jenny joyce at the wawa in
bear, that's where police arrested one of the suspect yesterday. right to steve squeal any middletown where the other suspect is still barricaded, steve? >> well i have got even more sad news for you, i can tell that you a teenage girl, shot and killed last night, three murders in two days down here in delaware, we talked about, how a violent year has been, already, for wilmington in addition to the trooper being killed. so just terrible news coming here that's 16 murders for wilmington this year, compare that to camden, little bit bigger than wilmington in terms of population, three murders. >> they're waiting to get back in some who came here from work yesterday, daniel, turn, show them the school bus, i'll stop talking, a lot of the resident fear there is a public school right behind us, and they're figuring the school will have to announce
sooner areolate their they can't open today. you can see the road to get into the school is closed but we just saw bus leaving. maybe that's a sign that they're going to try to have school near this where they had the schools in lockdown yesterday. nothing changed. we learned from state police, that this gunman was still shooting, sue one steet over from the gunman kind enough to give us eyewitness and ear witness updates all night, sue, from the viewers still down, 65:30 half hour, what happened outside your door starting 1:00 a.m. today? >> robot up to the door, busted the door down. apparently that didn't work. they waited a couple hours, 1:00 a.m., started continuous, like, explosion. very loud explosions, like three in a row.
and then kitchen you will meant go by, more explosions and gunshots i would hear. i heard them on the bullhorn, couldn't really make out what they were saying. and then maybe half hour go by, and it would start up again. i would say it all-in-all between one and four, there was probably about 20 explosions. >> and again, nothing since could you see orer?. that >> nothing, i don't hear anything, i don't see anything, like i said, my view is a little obstructed by a house. >> but i just don't hear anything. i was hearing the cops, police officers, you know, talking on the bullhorn. but quiet as anything right now. >> sue thanks once again. totally insane as another neighbor told us, and it was non-stop, and it was terrifying, those are her
words. >> what we learn from the police, they confirm sue and the other neighbors saying 4:00 a.m. this guy shooting at them, they blew out, numerous windows are mediators, the police on bullhorns, but nothing, since it got light out after birrage of explosions just past 4:00 a.m. so, we, like these people here, who are stuck out of their home, are trying to wait this out, and police who may be thinking they're waiting this guy out there is guy obviously is loaded with lot of ammo, who has been reloading, because he's been firing at cops since they first traced him to his family's house here, in the suburb, just after the trooper was murdered at ten afternoon yesterday. so we are coming up on our 17 -- hour 17, and 18, and 19, and no ends in site from police. we haven't seen a lot of activity from our vantage point either, but staying in
touch with everybody, just grim news though with that 17 year old teenage girl, also, being killed, last night in wilmington. so it is getting worse down here in delaware. >> this is one of the situation that is really hurt your heart and emotions are running so high right now, after that trooper's death. >> when you hear the news it, touches you to the core, as we mourn the officer, the trooper, jenny joyce in bear, delaware, with more this morning, jenny? >> we did see a man stop by, he didn't know corporate ballad personally, but this is a person, a man who served this community, this should not happen there is lost the life. take a look here at growing memorial, outside of this wawa, where corporal ballard lost his life yesterday. also have some video from yesterday as mourners watch the body of fallen delaware still police corporate stephen ballard was escorted from christianna hospital, by his
