"in the event of urgent situations, our administrators and staff have to act quickly to diffuse situations and prioritize safety." the district also said administrators had spoken to the parents of all the students involved. the mother says she still feels there were better ways for the staff to handle the situation. 15.36.10.00 "i could see if he was trying to restrain her and move her out if the situation, but it clearly shows on the has not been back to school since the incident, but says
6:04 am
administrators again next week. metro needs your help finding a person of interest in a fraud investigation. officers say the someone lost their wallet last month with their i-d and credit cards inside. the next day, that person noticed several high end purchases were made on their credit cards at businesses along the southern beltway. the person in these images, is one of three people who police believe used the cards. we have an update on a summerlin burglary caught on camera. metro has now arrested a second suspect on burglary charges. police say michael waters admits he's the man seen inside a home near cheyenne and durango stealing a tv. according to metro officers found waters at the same north las vegas home where they arrested arron lair after seeing video of 4 men leaving a summerlin home after a break in. police say lair is the taller man seen in both videos.
6:05 am
getting a tip about a white suv like the one in the video.. being spray painted black. we've shown you this video of protesters disrupting services saying this will not be taken lightly. police have responded to at least 3 disturbances... one at saint viator.. one at bishop gorman and the third at our lady of las vegas. state laws protect churches from this type of behavior. "persons are not allowed to go to houses of worship regardless it be catholic or otherwise and disturb, speak out loud, cause noise, and disturb the worship process." in each instance.. the protesters left the church after being asked by worship leaders.. and were long gone when police arrived so no arrests were made. we're following a developing story out of southern california... where a mosque was damaged in a suspicious fire. a group of muslims gathered to pray in front of the islamic society of palm springs last night after the fire was contained. investigators are calling it arson. officials at the mosque say someone 'fire-bombed' the

no arrests have been made. fortunately.. no one was hurt. shattered windows at the islamic cultural center in phoenix have the muslim community on high alert. the vandalism was discovered thursday morning . the president of the mosque says a window in an office under construction and another window and spotlight were damaged and broken. the hate crimes unit was called out, but phoenix police say they do not believe the mosque was targeted. but the director of the center says he fears this is backlash from the attacks in paris and san bernardino and republican presidential candidate donald trump calling for a halt on muslims coming into the united states. some muslims say they are scared to come and pray since this happened. good morning everyone! coming up... "straight up rip every limb off that tree."-- incredible video of a tornado as mother nature strikes the western u-s. more on this video coming up. ((ad-lib)) welcome back...

"straight up rip every limb off that tree."-- the twister.. packing winds of more than 100-miles an hour.. touched down twice along a two mile path. people across the pacific northwest have also had to struggle with everything from flooding and landslides to power outages plus hail. that storm is now moving east across the rockies.

6:10 am
scientists say a failure to do that could lead to catastrophic droughts, heat waves, mass extinctions, and rising sea levels. the whole world is watching. billions of people are relying on your wisdom. organizers say today's agreement would limit the increase to one-and- a-half degrees celcius. participating countries must agree by concensus, but some nations may decide to ignore the treaty. in this morning's rwb2016 political coverage.. a new report has surfaced.. claiming republican party leaders might be planning to manipulate the outcome of their convention to nominate a presidential candidate. the washington post is reporting party leaders listened to their options at a dinner meeting this week. if no candidate wins a majority of primary delegates.. or if the party establishment wants to push an alternative to donald trump.. there could be a floor fight at the gop convention in cleveland.. sot trump: "honestly, it's not gonna matter. they can't do anything. i don't care about the establishment" donald trump has surged in
6:11 am
call for a moritorium on muslims entering the u-s. in late october.. there were signs trump was starting to fade. since then.. he's jumped 13 points in the same poll. to a developing story... u-s intelligence is warning about a new potential threat from isis. cnn reports the group has demonstrated the ability to produce fake passports, which they could potentially use to travel overseas. the u.s. government is also worried isis may have access to biographical data and fingerprints for syrian citizens that could be used for phony identifications. "we have been aware of reports, not just in the press, that they may have this capability, obviously its something we take seriously.' in order to travel to the united states, they would need a visa and to get one they would need to be screened by the state department. federal investigators in san bernardino now believe they know where the two terror
6:12 am
were killed in a shootout with police. an fbi dive team spent yesterday searching a lake for possible evidence the shooters may have dumped after killing 14 people last week. while they learn more about syed farook and tashfeen malik.. the fbi continues to question farook's former neighbor. investigators say enrique marquez supplied the assault rifles used by the attackers. sot senator risch: "there had been some arrests immediately adjacent to that right in their area rethink it." meanwhile, one of the victims in that deadly rampage was laid to rest in riverside, california yesterday. straight ahead... a record number of packages being shipped out this holiday season---we'll tell you why you may not get yours in time. you're watching good morning las vegas on channel 13. we'll be right back on this
6:13 am
broad daylight as a wisconsin postal worker is carjacked. a nearby surveillance camera recorded the crime as it happened. you can see a man walk up and shove the postal worker out of her car before he takes off with the packages inside. the van was later spotted abandoned in an alley.. but the mail and suspect haven't been found. the employee wasn't hurt.. but she was understandably very shaken. some clever police officers in barberton, ohio have busted three burglary suspects by using a text message to trick them into revealing where they were hiding. it started when police say the men threw a rock through the
6:14 am
two suspects were caught on survellaince cameras stealing two shotguns and a rifle. officers were able to catch one of them.. then they used his cell phone to text the other suspect. that guy responded with his location. that's when patrol officers moved in and arrested him. a third suspect was found nearby. police are still looking for suspect number-4.. but they say they know who he is. a school in detroit is working with police to try and figure out who brought marijuana-laced brownies to a teachers lounge. the investigation began after a teacher ate one of the brownies and started feeling sick. but it wasn't until he went to a doctor that investigators got suspicious. 56:13 - 56:20 "the oakland county crime lab tested the brownies and they did contain the active ingredients in marijuana" (butted to) 57:48 - that was obviously concerning as well. investigators are trying to figure out if this was a malicious act or if someone made a batch of pot brownies for personal use and
6:15 am
them up with normal brownies. now to a contact-13 consumer alert. a record number of packages are being shipped for the holidays this year.. but you may not get yours on time. abc's rebecca jarvis explains why companies are falling behind on their delivers. they're as universal as santa claus and christmas trees at the holidays - ups and fedex trucks, making the rounds nats but this year, with online orders soaring 14% those deliveries are already hitting delays. the on-time delivery rate at both ups and fedex now down from this time last year. flooded with orders after a surge in online sales over the thanksgiving weekend.. ups now delivering some packages in u-haul trucks. sot mike mangeot/ups spokesman "during the holiday season it is very common for ups to use u-haul trucks to help handle the extra package deliveries that are needed." ups fail" already becoming a popular hashtag with consumers crying foul on their computers of course- if you don't want to worry?. there's always the old fashioned way. sot mark ellwood / retail
6:16 am
to going into the store. not just you're having a bit of fun shopping the old fashion way but there are discounts a staff member can offer you if you just ask. rebecca jarvis tag: there's also the post office generally the cheapest option and you still have three more days to ship by standard post and guarantee it gets there by christmas. another consumer alert for you... there are more issues surfacing for chipotle. one of the chain's seattle locations has been shut down by the health department for repeated safety violations. the closure comes only hours after the company's ceo apologized for a multi-state e-coli outbreak that sicked 52 people in nine states. chipotle temporarily closed 43 locations in washington state and oregon.. including the one closed again yesterday.. as a result of the outbreak. good morning las vegas..

6:29 am
with gusts to 40mph possible ahead of another front. this front will be more powerful and models have held it together consistently which means a better chance of widespread rain for the las vegas valley. the bullseye looks to be the mountains and west and south of the valley as the moisture plume will have less topographical challenges to contend with from that direction. temperatures will also see a huge change as highs drop another 10 or so from the upper 50s to the upper 40s before falling yet again monday into tuesday. low temperatures below freezing around most of the valley are expected tuesday through
