11:01 pm
access facebook? you asked, we'll verify. wusa9 at 11:00 starts now. 48 hours later, we still do not know who killed these two montgomery county teens. they were found shot in a running car, sitting in a cul de sac. all of this just a day before they were supposed to graduate from high school. one of them, shadi najjar was laid to rest today, and his father had a hard time speaking about the loss of his son. >> i love my boy. i do love my boy. i love him. >> his son was 17. artem ziberov was killed too. he was 18. by all accounts they were both good young men, and excellent students. najjar is willing to do whatever he can to find out who took their lives. >> the reward is $20,000 now. and i'm going to keep increasing it, until
11:02 pm
>> police say there are no suspects in this case, and they're just not sure why this happened. >> we did find out more about how they were killed tonight. he told us these details. >> we have determined that both individuals were shot multiple times. more rounds were found, more shell casings were found than we typically find at these kinds of shooting scenes. as you menaced, the car, we found it running. the lights were on, and the two victims were sitting in the car at the time. >> a lot of casings, a lot of bullets. a horrifying night in that neighborhood. tonight, we asked to go back to the scene of the crime, and talk to neighbor, and try to reconstruct what happened as best she could. >> reporter: we're going to walk through this together, so we can try to get to the bottom of this mystery. i've learned this neighbor came home from
11:03 pm
night. the victim's car was not here. an hour later at 10:30, the victim's car was parked right here where our crew vehicle is located. the engine was running. the headlights were on. now police tell us the suspects were shooting at the victims as they were approaching the car. the victim, those young boys, were shot at a distance and at close range. that's according to the autopsy. police say this is all based on evidence found into the car and here. police say this area was littered with shell casings. even a house over here was hit with a stray bullet. which bring us to the getaway car. based on our evidence we've gathered it appears the suspects were not familiar with this neighborhood, because the car drove straight towards a dead end and the driver was forced to go around the cul de sac be
11:04 pm
it. the attack took less than 30 seconds, and then it all went silent. in montgomery village, wusa9. >> we're staying on top of it too. if you know anything that could help police close the case, or even a tip that could get them in the right direction, they want to hear from you. tomorrow, it's james comey's turn. the fired fbi director appears before the senate intelligence committee, talking about conversations he had with president trump. conversations he documented in a series of memos. >> this testimony has all the makings of a bombshell. >> tonight, how d.c.'s getting ready, and how the president feels about it. first, let's get right into what the fired fbi director will say. his opening statement is out there. you can see it. comey says over a private dinner, the president asked him three times
11:05 pm
loyalty. comey deferred each time. he claims the president asked him to lift the cloud into whether or not his team coordinated with russia during the campaign, and trump asked him to let it go. it it being whether or not michael flynn lied about having contact with the russian ambassador. >> that statement is just the start. once it's over, 15 senators will each get a chance to question comey. journalists will be there documenting every moment inside and outside of the hearing room. our stephanie ramirez talked with one journalist who believes tomorrow is just one part of a bigger story. >> reporter: white house correspondent for cbs news, major garrett, he's saying slow down. especially for the people comparing this to watergate. >> i remember my parents were very skeptical about it. they came to this
11:06 pm
sick and cancerous inside the nixon white house. we're not there yet. >> reporter: what he does say is -- >> james comey's testimony will be an important thread in what could be a very large tapestry of a story. >> reporter: with the former fbi director's statement already released, garrett says tomorrow's testimony could reveal nothing more, or it could be a crucial moment. >> what is the most important thing the american public needs to get out of tomorrow? >> they need to get a sense that the fbi director, whatever you think about him, whatever you think he should, or shouldn't have done during the 2016 campaign, in this set of interactions with the president was looking out at the best interest of the country and the fbi. it would have to come to a different set of conclusions. >> reporter: it's going to be an early day for garrett, and all the reporters. everything begins at 10:00. outside of the white house,
11:07 pm
colleagues will be covering the hearing. you'll be able to see it here on wusa9. we'll also be streaming that coverage on our site, and our wusa9 app. you can even find a list of bars and restaurants opening early, just for this. >> because it is washington, right? one bar in capitol hill is betting president trump can't stay awhy from firing off some thoughts during comey's testimony. the house will buy a round for anybody in the joint, anytime the president tweets about the hearing while it's happening. >> that's dangerous. in an effort to draw attention away, president trump announced his pick for fbi director this morning. top senate democrats don't seem to mad about it either. his name is christopher ray. he's a partner at king, and spalding law firm. he was an associate deputy general and justice
11:08 pm
u.s. attorney general from 2003 two 2005. building bridges and burning them too. that would affectively sum up the president's trip to cincinnati. he talked up his infrastructure plan, generating $1 trillion to fix our roads and bridges. here's the thing. one moment, the president is calling on democrats to work with him. the next, he's labeling them obstructionists and taunting them for losing congress and the white house. as for his plan, long on vision, but short on specifics. >> there is no limit to what we can achieve. all it takes is a bold, and daring vision and the will to make it happen. >> the white house is promising a detailed plan to be released by september. first responders rushed to the scene of what turned out to be a broken ankle. firefighters had to rescue robbie from the roof
11:09 pm
and cleaning gutters up there. the rest said don't jump from one roof to another, but apparently he did. >> he wanted to jump off. i heard it when it popped. i was kind of scared. >> d.c. firefighters used this ladder truck to rescue woods. he's from madison, virginia. not too far from culpepper. all of this was wrapped up in about a half hour. 45 years in prison for a prince george's county mom, who killed her own two little kids. sonya spoon wrapped them in plastic bags and duct tape and then tried to kill herself. spoon had been in the hospital for a suicidal meltdown, she told doctors flat out, she was having thoughts about killing herself and the kids, but they sent her home anyway. >> the hospital never notified the police that this young lady was being released to go home, after she had threatened to kill her children, nobody
11:10 pm
notified social services. >> pushing for a law to require doctors and others to report situations like this. but the bill has died in the legislature three years running. states just to our south are struggling with an outbreak of dog flu. should you vaccinate your pet? >> according to these two organizations, there have been multiple reports of k-9 influenza in the u.s. the good news right now for the dmv is that it hasn't been found in our area. animal experts say you should still use caution when it comes to this viral infection. >> dogs usually have a high fever. they don't want to eat. we can see respiratory discharge, cough. >> it can spread easily too. >> the virus leaves on people's hands up to
11:11 pm
on the clothes up to 24 hours. >> reporter: vaccinate your dog, and clean where your dog lives. dave has another request of his fellow dog owners too. >> if they show symptoms, keep them away from dog parksment keep them at home until the symptoms clear up. >> reporter: it's important to note dogs can pass on this disease to cats, but it hasn't been found in humans yet. if you think this can't show up at the dmv, you're wrong. it was just eight years ago, dogs were found in fairfax, virginia. that fire extinguisher in your house, where is it? a surprising number of us are keeping them in the wrong place. next at 11:00, a special assignment report that could save lives when seconds count. howard. really nice out here tonight, we're seeing the moon, got jupiter out there. looks like a good thursday, with more sunshine. we'll start in the 50s. 60s in the morning, with low to mid-70s in
11:12 pm
enjoy it, because we've got some serious heat headed our way late in the weekend, and next week. >> you asked. we'll verify. got a lot more to tell you about, as we continue live from the nation's capitol tonight. you're watching the news at 11:00 on wusa9. tom went to washington to take on the insurance companies and the credit card companies and the wall street banks - that's what tom perriello is about. i was proud to stand with president obama because progressive causes have been my life's work. i'm tom perriello, and i'm running for governor to reduce economic inequality,
11:13 pm
burden of student debt and protect our climate. together we really can build a virginia that works for everyone. nendorses dr. wralph northam. mr. northam would make the better governor. and virginia progressives agree. ralph northam is the only candidate who stood up to the nra after the virginia tech shooting. dr. northam led the fight to stop the republicans' transvaginal ultrasound law. ralph is a leader for education,
11:14 pm
e-k for thousands of families in virginia. ralph northam: making progress means taking on tough fights, and as governor, i won't let donald trump stand in our way. how much time do you spend on facebook during the course of a day? are you on it enough that you couldn't live without it? what if facebook started charging you to log on? >> i want to know if facebook is going to start charging people. >> reporter: nanette white from the district. she hit me up on facebook messenger. it says hi, i'm mark, the director of facebook, then it launches into this blah blah blah that facebook is now going to cost you money, unless you forward the message to 18 of your friends. if you don't do it by
11:15 pm
screwed. oooh that smell. yeah, it's crap. i can verify, whamo, this is false. facebook is not going to start charging, and you don't have to forward this message. basically, it's a digital chain letter. remember those letters that you got in your mailbox back in the day. it said forward this to five people or you'll have bad luck? it's the same kind of thing. there's nothing that directs you where to pay. i can't see how it would compromise your money or your personal information. facebook itself is addressing the issue. it's a popular topic. our verify researchers found this bogus message started appearing five months ago. they say if you get something fishy, you can figure out what to do by just going to facebook.com/help. if you ever wind up with something that looks like this, never open any links or attachments contained within
11:16 pm
you, or your computer somehow. so something out there on facebook looks suspicious to you, you don't know what to believe or not, whether you see it on facebook, twitterer, the internet, tv, whatever. share it on my page, or just pay it into an email. you can find me on twitter or facebook. like me, and follow me. why wouldn't you? you can also email at verify@wusa9.com. a lot of us have one of these in our homes. a fire extinguisher. but the sad thing is, most of us really don't know how to use it properly, and almost all of us have it stored in the wrong place. in tonight's special assignment report, the dos and don'ts of fire extinguisher safety. >> reporter: it was flames like this on the evening news one night that sparked a simple question. the answer. >> it's a little scary. >> reporter: we wanted to find out, do you know how to find, or operate a fire extinguisher in
11:17 pm
>> i always tell people, during an emergency is not the time to figure everything out. >> reporter: she teaches a class to firefighters and to everyday people. >> 90% of people will tell you, they've never put their hands on it, and never tried to use it. >> reporter: she used what's called the fire extinguisher simulator. >> you use a laser fire extinction wisher to put the fire out. >> reporter: remember. >> pull the pin. you want to aim at the base of the fire. the base is the source. it's what's hot. that's where your problem is. sweep, is just sweep it off the screen. >> reporter: easy right? i managed the p, pulling the pin, aiming and squeezing. >> down low on the bottom of the fire. >> i'm squeezing. >> keep going. you've got it. >> so that pass really helps though. i hano
11:18 pm
>> what's the thing that surprises you most? >> most people think the best place to keep their extinguisher is in the kitchen. >> reporter: nope, because most home fires start in the kitchen. >> i don't want to go to the fire to get to your fire extinguisher. >> she recommends having one for every floor of the house. there are some easy ways to figure out if your fire extinction wisher is still good. take a look at the gauge. if the arrow is in the green, you're still good. also, look at the bottom, there should be a manufacturing date. this says 2014, they're good for five years from that date. >> don't ever want you to use the fire extinguisher. for me, it's get out and stay out. call 911, let the firefighters do their job. if the fire is between you and the door, you can use the extinction wisher to get out the door. if the fire is very, very early, possibly. fire doubles in size approximately every 30 seconds. >> reporter: fire officials say it is best

it's mild. 61 in fredericksburg, and in the mountains. we're in the 40s. decent looking night. did you see the fireworks out there? an event over at nats park, they were shooting fireworks off. north-northeasterly winds at 5 miles per hour. the humidity at 70%. of course, a couple of those fireworks pictures on facebook and twitter. the afternoon showers in the rockies. some storms in minnesota, and flooding rains in florida. the moisture from it, being drawn up by that area of low pressure, raining from northern florida, really ugly beach day in the carolinas. around here, just enough of a push to clear us out this evening, and we are looking at clear to partly cloudy skies tonight, with more clouds west. more clear skies east. could even be a patch northwest, where some areas had half an inch of rain today. tomorrow looks pretty good. some showers in the mountains in the afternoon, and the storm to
11:22 pm
away, we could have a stray shower friday. but the warmth and the heat are going to start to build in here. maybe a stray storm saturday afternoon in the mountains. forecast tonight, partly cloudy on the cool side. in the 50s. tomorrow morning, low 50s in the cool spots. 70 by lunchtime. partly sunny, cool and dry. the afternoon will feature temps 70 to 75. i think that's pretty pleasant for this time of the year. warmer on friday, with a stray afternoon storm, 83. look at the temps. 88degrees. we head towards next week, 93 sunday. 95 monday. 96 tuesday. that would tie the record. wednesday, so hot, just not as hot, with a high around 90. great running weather. can't wait. right now, three things that have happened since you've got home from work. a florida man busted with 15 bottles of pennzoil down his pants. a slippery crook, along with dozens of dvds. he might have
