FM SHOOTING-trxSS,VO


NEW AT 11 --

WE NOW KNOW THE IDENTITY OF THE VICTIM WHO WAS SHOT OVER THE WEEKEND IN FORT MYERS.

TIMOTHY BROWN OF FORT MYERS IS EXPECTED TO BE OKAY --

HE'S IN THE HOSPITAL RECOVERING AFTER HE WAS SHOT SATURDAY NEAR THE INTERSECTION OF FORD STREET AND THOMAS STREET.

WHEN OFFICERS ARRIVED ON SCENE -- THE VICTIM WASN'T BREATHING --

BUT LUCKILY THERE WERE ABLE TO REVIVE HIM.

THE SUSPECT IS STILL AT LARGE --

AND THE INVESTIGATION IS ONGOING --

IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING -- YOU'RE ASKED TO CALL CRIME STOPPERS --

OR FORT MYERS POLICE. Return to index of stories...


NAPLES DEATH INVESTIGATION-trxSS,VO


RIGHT NOW -- WE'RE WORKING TO FIND OUT THE IDENTITY OF A BODY THAT WAS DISCOVERED OVER THE WEEKEND IN NAPLES

A NEIGHBOR TOLD DEPUTIES HE WAS LOOKING FOR THE SOURCE OF A STRONG SMELL WHEN HE MADE THE DISCOVERY SATURDAY.

THIS WAS IN A VACANT LOT AT PINE STREET NEAR HIGHWAY 41.

INVESTIGATORS SAY THE BODY WAS LIKELY THERE FOR A WHILE. Return to index of stories...


NAPLES DEATH INVESTIGATION-SOTVO


i myself walk my dog on this road everyday sometimes twice a day---and then there's tons of people on bikes, and there's people that bike on 41, there's a lot of traffic here so I don't know why it wasn't found sooner.

THE MEDICAL EXAMINER IS NOW EXAMINING THE BODY TO I-D THE PERSON AND DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF DEATH.

THE CASE IS STILL UNDER INVESTIGATION. Return to index of stories...


MISSING PLANE-ONCAM


A STORY WE'RE TRAKING THIS MORNING --

CREWS MAY HAVE FOUND A SIGN OF MISSING MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 370, BUT OFFICIALS ARE BEING CAUTIOUS UNTIL THEY KNOW FOR SURE WHAT THEY'RE HEARING.

ANDREW SPENCER HAS THE LATEST. Return to index of stories...


MISSING PLANE-PKG


--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

OFFICIALS WANTED TO MAKE ONE THING VERY CLEAR:

"We haven't found the airplane, yet."

.BUT AFTER MORE THAN A MONTH OF SEARCHING FOR MISSING MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 370, OFFICIALS HAVE THEIR "MOST PROMISING" LEAD YET -- CREWS DRAGGING A PINGER LOCATOR UNDERWATER PICKED UP SIGNS OF WHAT COULD BE AN EMERGENCY BEACON.

"Two separate signal detections have occurred within the northern part of the defined search area. The first detection was held for approximately two hours and twenty minutes."

OFFICIALS SAY THOSE SIGNALS ARE CONSISTENT WITH WHAT WOULD BE EMITTED FROM A PLANE'S FLIGHT RECORDERS.

THE BAD NEWS: ANY KIND OF CONFIRMATION COULD TAKE DAYS, AND THE BATTERIES ON THE BEACONS ARE RUNNING OUT OF JUICE.

"We're already one day past the advertised shelf life. We hope that it keeps going for a little bit longer."

.AND CREWS CAN'T JUST FOLLOW THE NOISE RIGHT BACK TO THE SOURCE; IT'S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THAN THAT.

"Unlike in air, where sound travels in a straight line, acoustic energy through the water is greatly affected by temperature, pressure, and salinity, and that has the effect of attenuating , sometimes through 90-degrees, sound waves."

WHILE LOCATION OF THE WRECKAGE IS THE ULTIMATE KEY TO UNDERSTANDING WHAT HAPPENED TO FLIGHT 370, INVESTIGATORS ARE STILL LOOKING THROUGH OTHER INFORMATION FOR ANSWERS.

A SENIOR GOVERNMENT SOURCE IN MALAYSIA TOLD C-N-N, SUNDAY, THE FLIGHT MAY HAVE TAKEN A ROUTE AROUND INDONESIAN AIRSPACE -- SUGGESTING THE ROUTE MAY HAVE BEEN DESIGNED TO AVOID DETECTION BY RADAR.

I'M ANDREW SPENCER, REPORTING Return to index of stories...

FT HOOD SHOOTING-PKG


THE SHOOTINGS AT FORT HOOD EVEN HAVE DEMOCRATS CONSIDERING BOOSTING THE PENTAGON'S BUDGET TO SECURE MILITARY BASES.

super burned in

Virginia:08-:11

"Depending on the line item, sure. I mean, I'm not - no blank check."

BUT PERHAPS AN INCREASE FOR MORE MILITARY POLICE.

ANOTHER OPTION: ALLOWING SOLDIERS TO CARRY PERSONAL WEAPONS:

super burned in

Texas:19-:28

".some -- not all, but maybe some -- of our senior leadership officers, enlisted men, on the base carry weapons for protection."

THE WHITE HOUSE IS AGAINST IT:

super burned in

"Pentagon has looked at proposals like the one that Congressman McCaul has talked about and they don't think it's a good idea."

super burned in

Virginia:36-:40

"If the military reassesses and says that's the right strategy, then I'm going to support them."

super burned in

"I would be much more in the camp of fixing it that way and focusing on the individuals than routinely allowing arms on any base, military base in the country."

INDIVIDUALS LIKE IVAN LOPEZ. WHO AUTHORITIES SAY USED HIS OWN GUN TO KILL THREE PEOPLE AT FORT HOOD LAST WEEK.

HE WAS ALSO BEING TREATED FOR DEPRESSION. AND HAD BEEN EVALUATED FOR -- BUT NOT DIAGNOSED WITH -- POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER.

THAT'S SPARKING NEW DEBATE ON CAPITOL HILL ABOUT WHETHER TO RESTRICT WEAPONS TO THE MENTALLY ILL --

AN ISSUE CONGRESS CONSIDERED. BUT PUT ON THE BACK BURNER.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-CLIP


Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


It was a pretty nice weekend filled with sunshine and very warm weather. Temperatures will remain warm in the short term, before a cold front brings rain and a few storms followed by a brief cool down.

Partly sunny conditions will continue through the afternoon, with mainly dry weather. Daytime highs will climb into the middle to upper 80s, along with a breezy wind from the south and southwest.

Tonight, clouds will be on the increase ahead of our next storm system and there may even be a stray shower washing in from the Gulf of Mexico overnight. Humidity levels will stay high, keeping our nighttime temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s area wide.

A cold font will be crossing the peninsula on Tuesday, bringing us a threat for rain and a few storms by late morning through the afternoon hours. At this time, the severe weather risk looks low, however some of the storms that push through could produce some heavier downpours and gusty winds. Once the rain fades and the front pushes south, breezy northerly winds will usher in a cooler and drier airmass. This cool down will be brief, as we'll spend two nights in the 50s, with daytime highs rebounding quickly back into the 80s by Thursday.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA. Return to index of stories...

WEATHER OPEN-CLIP

WEATHER-WX WALL


It was a pretty nice weekend filled with sunshine and very warm weather. Temperatures will remain warm in the short term, before a cold front brings rain and a few storms followed by a brief cool down.

Partly sunny conditions will continue through the afternoon, with mainly dry weather. Daytime highs will climb into the middle to upper 80s, along with a breezy wind from the south and southwest.

Tonight, clouds will be on the increase ahead of our next storm system and there may even be a stray shower washing in from the Gulf of Mexico overnight. Humidity levels will stay high, keeping our nighttime temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s area wide.

A cold font will be crossing the peninsula on Tuesday, bringing us a threat for rain and a few storms by late morning through the afternoon hours. At this time, the severe weather risk looks low, however some of the storms that push through could produce some heavier downpours and gusty winds. Once the rain fades and the front pushes south, breezy northerly winds will usher in a cooler and drier airmass. This cool down will be brief, as we'll spend two nights in the 50s, with daytime highs rebounding quickly back into the 80s by Thursday.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA. Return to index of stories...
