In the continuing investigation, a warrant was served today on at least one of the three stores where Rodger legally purchased his guns.

.the sheriff's department is re-examing how Rodger was able to fool trained deputes during an April 30th check on his well-being triggered by his parents' concerns.

"IF THEY FELT THAT HE WAS A DANGER THEN THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN SOME ADDITIONAL STEPS, AND THEY DIDN'T FEEL THAT BECAUSE OF THE WAY HE WAS ABLE TO CONVINCE THEM. AS HE WAS ABLE TO CONVINCE SO MAY PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY IN HIS LIFE."

During the mayhem many tried to help.Alyssa Hopper, a friend, rushing to Martinez's fallen body.

FORECAST-WXWALL


RAIN PROSPECTS RISE THIS WEEK

For the rest of today and tomorrow it looks hot, humid and mainly dry across southwest Florida. A few, very isolated, downpours will be on the First Alert Doppler Radar tonight; however, the rain activity won't be spread across a wide area and many places stay dry again this evening. Temperatures will stay warm this evening and only drop to the lower 70's tomorrow morning. After the isolated showers go away tonight our skies will stay mostly clear.

The forecast tomorrow looks like another mostly sunny day with a round of hot 90's in the afternoon. Humidity will be up again tomorrow, but the overall moisture content of the atmosphere above us will only be able to produce a couple of afternoon downpours on Tuesday. The computer models forecast moisture values to come up by Wednesday and, if that is the correct prediction, we should see more showers and thunderstorms by the middle of the week. Each afternoon will top 90 degrees this week and the evenings will be mild and muggy with temperatures in the lower 70's.

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...
