when a buyer pulls a gun on the seller. but then he takes matters into his own hands. >> reporter: he chases down and runs down the would- be robber. what was supposed to be a normal craigs list buy and sale did not end that way. the driver inside the suv, the guy knownas phil, the 39- year- old father of 3 who says he sells tennis shoes off his craigs list as a hobby and to provide for his family. he was just going to do that again but went hashy wrong. the man says the teenager you see walking there got into the suv and pulled a gun on him. but the gun jammed. the teen then grabbed the tennis shoes and took off. that might have been the end of this story but it becomes a little more complicated from there. the teen tried to catch a bus but the driver of the suv turned around and as you can see at the top of the screen, ran over that teenager. the teen losing an arm underneath the car. and in the aftermath, the teen with the adrenalin rush, ran off with only one arm and

11:16 pm
just talking with my producer about the observation site up in washington where they recorded wind chills down to - 80 0. a at the time they took the reading it' s one of the 6 coldest spots on the globe. so we' re keeping all of this cold air for ourselves right now. it' s - 8 in worcester and - 1 in boston and what really matters is how it feels outside and this is where we' re talking dangerous cold. the winds are still kicking out of the west/northwest and taking the real feel down anywhere between - 25 to - 35 below zero and gets colder overnight tonight. the wind chill warning in effect for most of the bay state and the wind chill advisory for cape cod through the islands and through noon tomorrow and not even necessarily that we warm up tomorrow afternoon but see the winds die down. for now pretty feisty. 25- 35 mph gusts in most spots around the bay state. you' ve got this very shallow layer of heat just above your
11:17 pm
and when you get the wind going, it takes away that heat and that' s why we' re talking frost bite that can set in in a matter of minutes. we do have mostly clear skies for us right now but there is an exception as you get out onto the outer cape. that' s where we' re seeing light snow showers and some bands of ocean effect snow and that is not ideal at this moment but the difference between the water temperature at 40 and that is the case tonight with the isolated locations through the outer cape with the coating to possibly two inches of snow. here are the lows we' re in for tomorrow and it is very likely record breaking and this is what it feels like tomorrow morning. i said it before. if you' re training for the marathon or have something to get you outside tomorrow, really limit that time outside.
11:18 pm
cold and want to take it out. - 8 is the forecast low for tomorrow and that would shatter the record of - 3. 12 in worcester would shatter the record of - 11. the highs tomorrow not warming up a whole lot but the wind won' t be an issue in the afternoon and that will make a difference in how it feels outside and then the arctic air retreats and we get some milder air that pushes in for next week. around the same time that we see our next system. but it doesn' t get here very quickly so monday as we start to see the system roll into place, it could start out as snow, possibly even some sleet and freezing rain for us. you can see that pushing in around the time you' re headed home from work on monday. if you have work, it is a 3- day weekend for a lot of us and turning to all rain and a lot of wind for tuesday as well. dangerous cold overnight tonight and again, some light snow showers for the outer cape. here' s the look at the 7 on 7 forecast. watching for that next tour monday and tuesday and then cold returns and the next system next weekend.
