milder. yesterday was a little on the cool side. our high temperature was only 64. today we'll begin about 10 degrees on that. let's start off with a look at the michael & son weather cam. our day planner, we have a good amount of sunshine peeking through the clouds right now. that tend will continue as we head through the day. just some high clouds from time to time. already 72 degrees at 1:00 and our high temperature of 74 will reach between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m. also notice those winds are nice and light out of the northwest at only about 5 to 10 miles per hour throughout the entire day and sunday will be even milder than today. take a look at our current temperatures. we're in the 50s instead of the 40s north and west of town. it's 52 in hagerstown and frederick. 50 in manassas and fredricksburg. 46 at andrews closer to the water we're getting a little bit of that cooling influence. so an unusual situation here but satellite and radar shows the sprinkles and showers from yesterday have now dissipated so we're going to return to the sunshine throughout the day today. coming up we'll talk about when
80s return to the forecast. that is in the first alert seven day. mike, back to you. >> thank you, erica. thousands of protesters are expected in the streets of baltimore once again today a day after the six city police officers were arrested for the death of freddie gray. 15 people were arrested overnight after they ignored the cure few. -- curfew. despite rowdy protesters, the round was much more jubilant tan the day before. the curfew ended at 5:00 a.m. and although the streets of baltimore are relative quiet right -- relatively quiet right now, they're not expected to stay that way. surae chinn has more on the massive rally. >> reporter: that's right. a mass jiff march is being plan -- mass jiff march is being planned -- massive march is being planed called a victory rally after the arrest of those officers in connection with the
death of freddie gray. charges range from assault to murder. >> the findings of our comprehensive, thorough and independent investigation coupled with the medical examiner's determination that mr. gray's death was a homicide which we received today has led us to believe that we have probable cause to file criminal charges. >> yes! >> reporter: cheers after state's attorney marilyn mosby announces charges against six officers. mosby says freddie gray died of spinal injuries when placed on the floor of the transport van. he was driven around handcuffed, shackled but unrestrained. his announcement triggered celebrations across west baltimore, the same streets where gray's funeral led to riots and loots days earlier. mosby is pleading that today's marches are peaceful. >> last but certainly not least, to the youth of this city, i will seek justice on your behalf. this is a moment, this is your
moment. let's ensure that we have peaceful and productive rallies that will develop structural and systemic changes for generations to come. >> reporter: and coming up in the next half-hour, we will hear from the fraternal order of police and those representing those six officers. also of course this had been in the news and of course on social media. we'll check out what's going on on twitter and that will be coming up in a little bit. back to you, mike. >> thank you. people protesting the death of freddie gray actually spread across the country overnight. on the west coast a a mayday rally. property was damaged there and people were arrested. and a young state's attorney has been thrust into the spotlight. marilyn mosby is making headlines around the world as she prepares to prosecute her first murder trials. while some are praising her, others including the police union are criticizing her quick
indictment. >> i can tell you that's simply not the case. as i stated from the moment of this investigation, i sent my own independent investigators to the scene to witness -- to interview witnesses. we've utilized and leveraged the police department's investigation to verify the facts. the information again that was turned over to me yesterday was not new to the state's attorney's office. >> surae chinn will have more on mosby and the charges against the six baltimore police officers. the man who cut a fire hose during the riots in baltimore on monday has now been arrested. 22-year-old greg bailey cut those hoses while crews were trying to put out a fire at a cvs that had been set on fire and then looted. the arrest comes just a day after the investigators circulated these photos of the suspect. we're tracking developments in a triple shooting in capitol heights, maryland. one man is in critical condition. two other victims have nonlife
threatening injuries. it happened along the 1400 block of ritchie road. they're tracking leads in the case though a suspect has not yet been arrested. one man is dead after a shooting in northwest d.c. a man was shot on the 5800 block near walter reed. he was taken to an area hospital where he later died. breaking baby news from overnight. the royal family just got a bit bigger. the duchess of cambridge gave birth to a baby girl. booking makers were tipping toward a girl with odds of alice or cal lot as a new name -- charlotte as a new name. prince charles said he was hoping for a granddaughter. we will go live to london with the latest. the episcopal diocese in maryland has accepted the resignation of bishop heather cook resigning nearly four months after the diocese asked her to quit. she was charged in the death of bicyclist thomas polermo.

good saturday morning. 7:11. a beautiful day headed our way. little leaguers on the way. the big wine fest at national harbor. not a bad time to get outside. >> not a bad time whatsoever. the weather will be looking much better than yesterday. high temperatures returning to the 70s throughout the metro area. let's get it started right now with a look outside and a look at our day planner as well. the jefferson memorial, i love all the green. so nice, isn't it, to see that green returning to the trees and the grass and everything like that. 60 degrees at 9:00 a.m. 70 at noon. that's pretty much our average high temperature for this time of year. so we're going to get a little
milder than we would expect thistime of year. northwesterly as we head through the day at 5 to 10 miles per hour so a light breeze. temperatures are in the 50s as you head from the beltway and points north and west. kind of unusual. we normally see the milder temperatures closer to the water but right now that water is still very cool so if you are going to be close to the chesapeake, close to the ocean at all today, you will see a little bit of that cooler influence. however, winds will be out of the northwest so there won't be a sea breeze today. a satellite and radar, nothing is heading our way. that area of low pressure to the south of us remains to the south of us all day long. on 9 futurecast, just a few clouds. we're not seeing much after potential for a sprinkle or shower. maybe a light stray shower positiving through pretty much any part of the metro area. 9 futurecast trying to pinpoint for us it will be in southern maryland but i believe there's a potential for a very quick shower or sprinkle pretty much anywhere in the metro. so as we head into sunday morning, we're back to clear skies and it will be nice and comfortable. we're going to see high
temperatures near 80 degrees on sunday. a better potential for seeing a sprinkle in the mountains on sunday. i think the immediate metro area stays completely dry during the day on sunday. so over the next three days, no surprise here. green weather alerts. look at these temperatures, though. up to 80 degrees on sunday and 82 on monday after today's high of 72 degrees. and in the first alert seven- day forecast, all good things must come to an end so we're looking at the potential for a thunderstorm on tuesday. those high temperatures remaining right around 80 degrees throughout the entire workweek. so after all that chilly weather we endured for what felt like an eternity we're now going to see a nice long stretch of warm weather in our forecast. fake i.r.s. agents are so yesterday. now scammers are putting a new twist on their efforts so they can steal your money. lesli foster tells us how. yeah, mike, fraudsters have a new trick up their sleeves.

we're scanning the satellites now for the best caught on camera video of the week. a man walking down a sidewalk in rio de janeiro was unhurt but hundreds of soda bottles came flying off the truck. the truck driver lost control. that loosened the cargo. can you believe it? that man is fine. the soda spilled everywhere. >> i would not be fine. that looks very scary. a only -- this is also very scary. a woman potentially set a gas pump on fire while a man was fueling up and it was all caught on surveillance video. officials say the woman started the fire the at an israeli gas station after the man refused to give her a cigarette. at first she walked away but then she comes back. she sparks the flame. it looks clearly like she sparked the flame igniting that gasoline. there's a furry bandit on the loose in michigan. the panda bandit. see the guy with the headgear.
he is on the run in three rivers after police say he robbed the gas station. he has the panda hat on. however, he's only snatching goods. so far he's not gotten his panda paws on any money. >> panda paws, i like that. coming up in our 7:30 half- hour, we'll head to winchester for their 88th annual apple blossostm feival. >> plus, using your cell phone to report cases of police brutality. we'll have more on the apps that are now acting as a line of defense. >> we have a gorgeous day ahead. lots of sunshine and comfortable temperatures as well. just how nice it's going to be coming up. >> good morning. everybody. i'm larry miller. want to give you a quick update on some issues with metro this weekend. red line will be running every # to 15 minutes. orange line every 18 minutes and the green line trains will be running every 15 minutes. the baby walk takes place this morning at 9:00.
welcome back. a lot of the freddie gray tragedy has played out on social media in this new digital age, everything from cell phone video to tweets are now part of the conversation. >> surae chinn is standing by in the newsroom and is going to tell us about some of the social media trends we've been seeing. >> reporter: that's right. twitter has been lighting up about baltimore since this happened and certainly it's no different as charges were leveled against the six officers. i want to show you some examples if we have them. a lot of them have been celebrating this next level of information that has been coming out from the state's attorney's office. people have been positive but not all of it has been
positive. by the way, the baltimore chapter of the fraternal order of police released a statement regarding itself charges against these -- the charges against these six officers. in an open letter, gene ryan wrote in part each of the officers involved is sincerely saddened by mr. gray's passing. they're all committed police officers who have dedicated their career to baltimore city police. and hear are some of those tweets i was talking about. continual denial of justice would have brought mayhem. and here's the letter saying they are disappointed and it has been a -- [indiscernible] on twirt the -- on twitter the fop says their gofundme account was suspended. it was to raise legal funds for those officers. they have no explanation why that gofund me was suspended. we are working to find a new site for donations the fop says
and they thank everyone for participating and donating. by the way, those officers, those six officers that we're talking about turned themselves in last night and they also posted bond. that is the very latest in the newsroom. we also want to go right to jonie. while it's legal to film police officers while on the job and now developers are partnering with advocacy groups to make smartphone apps to help people document police abuse and let them know they're right. the net footage goes straight to u tiewb. its -- youtube. here's an android app called 5.0 and it lets users review their interaction with police. they can get positive or negative ratings which then become searchable. then there's stop and frisk. it lets you film interactions with police by pressing a trigger button on the home
screen. here's another app that's gaining in popularity. >> reporter: they e arimages of police brutality that have become all too familiar, captured on video that went viral but now there's a new weapon in the figh police brutality called the mobile justice app. you hit record and with the tap of a finger your video is for longer just yours. once you stop recording not only does the app save a copy of your video for you, it always sends a second copy to your nearist aclu office. >> i think that really democratizes police encounters in ways that will be helpful. >> reporter: zachary norris, executive director of the center for human rights helped develop an app along with the aclu of southern california. he calls it the people's body camera. >> that really helps to raise the visibility of these police encounters and reduces the blue wall of silence that we see too
many officers hide behind. >> reporter: it lays out your reports when recording and alerts other users if you're having an encounter with an officer. most of the people we spoke to said they'd use it. >> i would feel more protect fundamental i could get video and somebody will be behind me to support me with that video. >> if it makes everybody more honest, then that's okay because everybody needs to be checked. >> you can find these apps by going to the app store on your smartphone. for wusa9 news, i'm jonie v. still ahead this morning, breaking baby news from the royal family. >> a judge's ruling could open the door for thousands of drivers. the challenge to fines and fees. >> a great afternoon. we're also going to speak with the event organizer for d.c. moms taking the catwalk. one of our very own is participating. you want to stay tuned and find out about that. >> weather wise, there we go, a beautiful shot of the white

forecast here because we have such a low chance but i did want to let you know that if you feel a few raindrops today, it's not going to be a long lived event. that rain will be over in about 15 minutes if it happens for you at all. look at these temperatures. 72 at 1:00. 74 at 4:00. winds nice and light out of the north and northwest at 5 to 10 miles per hour throughout the entire day. we're getting off to a fairly mild start as well. 50 in winchester and martinsburg. that's nice. 50 in manassas and gaithersburg. 46 at andrews but 53 in downtown washington. you can see on satellite and radar that there's still some cloud cover lingering but that is going to break up. the showers are done so we have a nice afternoon on tap. temperatures getting even milder as we head into sunday and monday you'll want to stay tuned for the details of the first alert seven-day forecast coming up. mike? >> thank you, erica. the family of freddie gray has been calling for peace after the charges were handed down yesterday against six police officers who stand accused of being part of the can iing of a bat -- killing of
a baltimore man. as the protesters get ready to take to the streets today, surae chinn has more on the gray family. >> reporter: you know, mike, the family was pleased after those charges were placed against those officers. the massive march is planned today now being billed as a victory rally on the heels of baltimore's top prosecutor filing criminal carnlgs against six -- charges against six officers in connection with the arrest and death of freddie gray. felony charges arrange from assault to murder. here's freddie gray's father speaking to the officers being charged. >> these charges are an important step in getting justice for freddie. and we ask that whoever comes to our city, a city that we love, a city that we live in come in peace. we were in shock and it was a
good shock. >> reporter: they've been charged with felony counts anywhere from misconduct to murder charges and they also posted bond yesterday. back to you. the watching and waiting is over. kensington palace announced this morning that the duke and duchess of cambridge william and kate welcomed a baby girl into the world. >> we're live in london with the latest. people compingout side the hospital -- camping outside the hospital. good morning, susan. >> reporter: good morning. it's been called the great kate wait. people have been camping out here for weeks now and the need came here has been waiting, more media accredited for this birth than even for prince george two years ago. now britain and london all celebrating the new princess. police are standing outside the
exclusive private lindo wing of cambridge hospital where the duchess was admitted early this morning. the so-called press pen filled with media and fans gathered to await the baby's arrival. some who had camped out here for weeks. >> having been camped out here for so long and find out the duchess is in the early stages of labor, it happened so quick. >> reporter: they don't know if they're having a girl or boy but it hasn't stopped brits from guessing. >> i hope it's a girl. >> reporter: the duke and duchess already have a little boy. they had him at the same hospital almost two years ago. >> everything is coming through on the kensington palace. >> reporter: doctors say this baby will likely come much more quickly than last time when kate was in labor here at st. mary's for ten and a half hours. then a royal bulletin will announce the baby's birth and gender on a golden easel in front of kensington palace.
when prince george was born, they kept the name choice quiet for several days first letting the queen know. the top connedders for names is alice at number one and elizabeth, charlotte, victoria and the sentimental favorite is diana. back to you. >> it will likely be announced on social media just like everything else they do these days. the new royal baby will be fourth in line to the british throne moving ahead to prince harry and making it unlikely the child will ever become queen. crews will return to watergate as they continue to search through the rubble. a cadaver dog made a possible hit on a victim. however, the search is on hold while crews try to stabilize the structure. it's unclear what caused the
three-story to collapse but there was construction going on. three construction workers were hurt in the collapse. a man who got a thrill out of throwing bottle bomb into crowded theaters in maryland and virginia last spring has been sentenced to 18 years in prison. he was seen tended to 60 years but will -- sentenced to 60 years but will spend only 18 under lock and key. he placed bottle bombs in packed movie theaters. he was caught on surveillance video doing this. district police looking for clues to the murder of a man in columbia heights. 21-year-old greg mcbride was found shot to death on harvard street. his mother came home to a sea of red lights last night to discover that it was her son who had been shot just steps from their front door. mcbride had been out of jail on an armed robbery charge for about a year. his aunt says the nephew was really turning his life around. >> he was a great guy. he trusted everyone. he trusted all the people here

a gorgeous weekend ahead. >> a gorgeous weekend ahead. we return to the 70s and it's going to be drier than it was yesterday. just a slight chance for a shower. i'll show that to you in 9 futurecast in just a minute. right now we'll take a look outside once again and the day plan we are a good amount of sunshine. 60 degrees at 9:00 but already 70 by noon. our high temperature today 74 degrees. we'll reach that it 3:00 and 4:00 and we'll still be in the low 70s at 5:00. we're still going to be looking at a light breeze out of the northwest so that drying influence that we get from the winds coming down off of the mountains though it is a light breeze. 54 right now in orange. 52 in martinsburg and frederick. it's 46, closer to the water, in baltimore. on satellite and radar, you can
see we're clearing out that little bit of remaining cloud cover and as we head through the day, the clouds will slightly develop again here on 9 futurecast. you can see the potential for maybe just a sprinkle, not a big deal. i think that 9 futurecast is trying to pinpoint this to be in southern maryland. however, anywhere in the immediate metro area we could see a quick sprinkle or shower. on sunday it gets even milder and that will of course lead to a better potential of a few showers in the mountains but not in the immediate belt way or metro area. we'll keep it mostly warm and dry throughout the entire weekend monday as we add more heat to the atmosphere, we'll fire up that potential for showers again in the mountains i think we keep it dry here in the immediate metro until tuesday. so just that slight chance for a sprinkle today with a high of 72 degrees. up to 80 on sunday. then take a look at monday's high temperature. 82 degrees with lots of sunshine. in the first alert seven-day forecast, tuesday is the day that we have the greatest
potential to see a thunderstorm. a cold front to our north kind of triggering a shower or storm with a high of 82 degrees. it's really going to start to feel like summer as we head into this workweek. check out this high temperature on wednesday. 80 degrees. a chance for a lingering shower. even after that cold front moves through we'll see temperatures remaining in the 80s. so i guess that we're getting a little bit of a break from that chilly weather that we had for most of the month of april. in our saturday health alert, new aids research center is opening here in the district. andrea roane has the details on that and the annual food bank fund raiser by d.c. lawyers. >> reporter: good morning. there are two new cases of h.i.v. every day in the district. to fight this spread the d.c. center for aids research is being established at george washington university. it will include over 200 researchers and clinicians from three gw schools and five major
