11:16 am
and mostly it's not because of what he's doing. i think he's been doing the right things. but trump especially has been sucking all the air out of the atmosphere in new hampshire. and trump and christie are both kind of the straight talking candidates in this race. and trump has gotten more attention. i think christie has not helped when we had some problems down the shore in jersey and he suggested that there was nothing do you want me to go down there with a mop? >> it did not endear him to his own voters, which is a real problem. >> she also says voters will give ohio governor john kasich a second look after his second place finish in new hampshire. she says his strong showing should come as no surprise to

11:19 am
how about that? the astronaut saw the storm as he crossed over europe and africa. and we're in for cold temperatures this week, but in southern california they're in the middle of a heat wave. temperatures soared into the 80s and 90s yesterday breaking records for this time of year. forecasters say afternoon temperatures will stay above normal through the week. that's nice for them. going to be cold for us, i understand. bill, that's a big difference we're going to be seeing. >> yeah, i don't want to hear about the 80s. nbc 10 first alert weather with meteorologist bill henley. >> because today is going to be the warmest day that we will see until next week. the temperatures this morning started cold enough for some slippery spots, but this morning as skies clear out we are drying out. and the temperatures are climbing. we'll wind up in the upper 30s. the wind is already blowing. we will feel a cold blast coming our way for tomorrow. through the day tomorrow the temperatures will stay below

11:36 am
senator sander's margin of victory was historic but one local analyst says it was not unexpected. shauna shames says because polling had so accurately predicted a sanders victory, the new hampshire results will not transform the race. >> both sanders and clinton know this is a long haul and they're both being adults about it. neither one tried to claim this for something that it isn't. it's not an unreasonable huge success. it is a win for sanders, which i think he needed. but i don't think it does hardly anything. they're about neck and neck in terms of delegates won in primaries right now, but again, it's a very long road. also, if you look at the delegates, the non-pledged delegates, the super delegates, right now all things consider she's still ahead. nobody's out of the race yet though. >> shames says as the race moves forward democratic voters will
11:37 am
start to more seriously consider each candidate's electability as a factor. and happening right now, the delaware county district attorney is giving an update about a police-involved shooting that happened earlier this week. we're going to take a listen in. >> what occurred at that point in time the passenger describes when the vehicle came to a stop, the driver pulled out a gun and pointed that gun in the direction of police. at the same time asmar was bailing out of that vehicle. he knew that at that point that the driver had a gun. and he knew the police at that point in time were converging onto that vehicle. and at that point he describes as jumping out of the vehicle and then ultimately blacking out hearing shots. the police, that gun was loaded, it was aimed at the police,
11:38 am
there were approximately six officers or more on the scene. but six officers did fire their weapons. they believed that they were in eminent fear of death or serious bodily injury. they returned, they fired. the gun was pointing at them at the time they were firing. and at that point in time the individual after the shooting the one individual was taken he had a -- the passenger had a wound, a minor wound to the ankle. and the driver of course had been killed due to the shooting. also, we're able to verify that salamar longer, the driver, had an extensive criminal record. that it goes back to 1999 where he was guilty of robbery and did one to two years.
11:39 am
he was then convicted again in 2004 for possession with intent to deliver, a drug offense where he received 9 to 23 months. he was convicted again in 2006 again for possession with intent to deliver. he was convicted in '07 for false identification to law enforcement officers and was violated in his probation. he was convicted again in '08 for paraphernalia. he was convicted again in 2010 for possession of a controlled substance. and finally, his probably most recent conviction is a robbery out of the city of philadelphia which was a felony in the second degree where he received three to six years in the state correctional institution and was currently on parole when this occurred. he was also convicted at the time of the robbery of persons
11:40 am
not to possess a firearm. he was a convicted felon and should not have had a firearm on his possession. it's clear through the investigation that he made the statement, he had no intention, no intention whatsoever, to go back to jail if he was apprehended with a gun he would have went back to jail. >> looks like we're having some problems there with our feed, but we're just listening to a delaware county district attorney's briefing on a police-involved shooting that happened earlier. six officers fired upon two suspects, one was killed, the other was injured. we'll continue to monitor that situation and bring you information as we get it. meanwhile, happening today, members of congress will hold a hearing on the zika epidemic. house foreign affairs subcommittees will hear testimony from the directors of the centers for disease control and the national institute of allergy and infectious diseases.

11:48 am
musicians 25 years and under. we saw there was a need for some kind of basic things. and we came up with the idea to begin this initiative to correct like you said underused guitars that are getting dusty in the corner. and got a little lonely and they need to be played. so about a year ago we started this initiative to collect them and put them in the hands -- >> they got some frustrated musicians like myself get frustrated and put it in the corner. >> i hear that a lot. >> some of these musicians must make a name for themselves at this point. >> well, mostly they're kids. and kids in need, you know, can't afford them. or, you know, the schools aren't offering the music programs like they used to. >> yeah, cutting because of budget restraints. >> uh-huh. so since guitars seem to be the thing that you could carry around, move around, fix easily, that was one to store easily as
11:49 am
we collect them we have a place to put them all. we find the recipients and they can be on their way. >> i was asking during the break if it's just guitars. i looked on your website and so are they just guitars? or are they looking for other instruments as well? >> right now just guitars, however we are currently talking with a local boys and girls club who collects all kinds of instruments. so we're setting up to partner with them to do the guitar component. >> karen, what is it about music that is so helpful for kids? my suspicion is is that kids who learn how to read music probably do much better in school and other aspects in their lives. >> i'm sure that's part of it. i always think especially in the terms of guitars that that guitar is your friend. that's your buddy. you spend time in your room playing, taking it places, it's
11:50 am
your friend. of course music is a universal language and it has to be beneficial in all areas of your life. >> yeah, i don't think times have changed that much. taking a look at some of the people who have benefitted from the guitars. but i don't think it's life has changed that much from when i was a kid. i think the cool kids then were playing guitars and the cool kids now are still playing guitars. so tell us how our viewers can support your organization. >> well, we have a little effort going on called give a little bit. when you go to our website that's going to be the first page that you see. we're asking for $5 a month to celebrate our fifth year. and also on the website at the right hand corner there's a little guitar logo that can be clicked. and all the information for guitar days for donors as well as applicants is there very clear. we are and they can learn about us there. >> for more information on how to donate to the project matters, just go to our website
