6:08 pm
the thirteen is now confirmed that portsmouth city councilman danny makes as it slapped with a fifteen hundred dollar fine for allegedly speaking about issues that were discussed behind closed doors in a letter to the mare however meek said a discussion we had with the virginian pilot reporter did not violate the closed door policy ironically make signed off on that rule when it was first put in place some question if the council even has the authority to issue these fines. the aclu is already investigating the mayor similar citation against city councilman bill moved a mother charged with murdering her own son quincy davis' body was found in the trunk of kindness lane's car a decade after the boy was last seen since so much
6:09 pm
lot of questions about the investigation. hurricane has more on how prosecutors are building their case tanya slain kept silence looking down during her arraignment thursday morning she's accused of killing her son quincy davis and hiding his body in the trunk of her car. celine has been in custody since last june after a state trooper found quinn sees body during a traffic stop is a long complex case prosecutors say they just recently brought the second degree murder charge following a six month investigation linked the autopsy report revealed the cause of quinn's his death was undetermined there's also a portion of the report that states that the manner of death was quote inconsistent with natural that salinas public defender says the commonwealth's case has more speculation than proof of this label of quincy i have not seen any evidence to include the report which
6:10 pm
murders of quincy vanished after moving away from virginia beach with his mom in two thousand and four according to court documents he died sometime within that year. celine served four years in prison for shooting in two thousand and seven and still no one knew where quincy was until twenty fifteen when a foul odor led a state trooper to make a disturbing discovery. i think those are underlying facts which will be presented at trial slayings trial is scheduled for september reporting in hampton eric bought legally winds up in the hands of the criminal and the troubling issue in hampton roads and thirteen where those guns are coming
6:12 pm
6:13 pm
tonight a thirteen is no investigation into where the guns used in street crimes are coming from a firearm was recovered in a crime. atf agents can trace the serial number back to the original owner but that owner may have nothing to do with the crime. thirteen is not anchor jenna roach takes a look at how so many guns and up in the wrong habits i moved it was better than this guy the guy you see here holding an assault rifle is a seventeen year old version of the guy you see your friend's pond on a completely changed man from the one who used to run the streets of this i almost almost went home to my friends actually stop people when it comes to settling the score a gun is always within reach in five point four but no one can have a fire he delivers the view would have to go outside and see richard watkins who once firearms are legally purchased how we
6:14 pm
in the grasp of the criminal is almost impossible to trace in norfolk last year five hundred and eighty five guns were recovered police chief mike goldsmith was going to secondary market and they are going between private citizens. there's no tracking so we don't know what happened to the garden afterwards until we uncovered an investigation out of the seven thousand virginia purchase firearms traced by the atf in two thousand fourteen hundred and sixty three were used in homicides more than half of firearms traced were bought in hampton roads. this doesn't mean that criminals are buying guns and then committing crimes the average time it takes from when a gun is purchased to what it shows up in a crime is nine points sixteen years in virginia the shorter the time the crime the more suspicious the atf is about where the gun came from how is it that that none was in the legal commerce in seven
6:15 pm
commerce and was found at crime scenes. also in two thousand and fourteen one thousand forty three guns used in crimes in virginia came from out of state most from north carolina at one hundred and forty eight the easy access by law in my opinion is part of the problem. the nun says once a person buys a firearm in virginia is their property nothing prevents the person from giving it away or selling this in at a gas station and through them someone come up to say hey look we're about to get a mark on i have this. we've all been one hundred books for to go on websites like rhymes with wide open like this ad for a pt eight forty five for trade in virginia beach but you are able to transfer the farmer sell that far after you lawfully purchase that licensed gun dealers say don't blame them
6:16 pm
lot like asking an automobile dealer and feels any remorse in our work without an accident occurs a new gun task force co chaired by the attorney general will first look to answer a few simple questions with complicated solutions read these guys are coming from or what we can do to stop this coming generation the muscles including his sons thirteen year old best friend three years ago shot on roanoke avenue in newport news. after an argument spiraled out of control if not for the fire along that could've been if this is partly why ponder on is a changed person. still fighting on the streets but this time for good because i've taken with so much i have a moral obligation to put what i cam back jenna roach thirty news now. atf agents had this warning if you're selling or giving a firearm away keep a receipt that has the make model and serial number if you
6:17 pm
prohibited person. it's a little chilly out there this evening we got a mixture of clouds and sunshine depending on your exact location. i've been looking at all of our various sky views here across the region and you can see if you look closely and i'll let you get a little bit better view here of some of these hampton for example obviously we have some clouds out there with a few breaks. we've seen some clouds at times this afternoon. this is probably the best picture here in norfolk that you can see there's still a decent amount of blue out there this one's a little higher so we get a little bit more of the sunlight until it sets and virginia beach same thing everybody is pretty simple around the region. no clouds excuse me no precipitation despite the clouds anywhere here in our immediate area there are a very very few sprinkles up their place like pappa hannah whether trying to do this on the cleanup up there no problems with any kind of rain but again when slight slight chance of a sprinkler next couple of
6:18 pm
cloudy right now fifty one degrees officially on the southside forty six in windy expected by nine pm and forty four still windy and cold at midnight which will make it feel even colder right now we talk about the fifty one the southside very similar number with fifty showing up both on the peninsula and in parts of northeast north carolina while wallace island you're little bit chilly right now at forty six when chills then go into the evening dropping back into the thirties and a lot of spots and where it isn't in the thirties it will be in the forties so to feel so a little bit colder than the actual air temperature will show you that one in a minute though but will start out with the wind chills because if you're out during the evening or overnight. it is definitely going to be cold and even tomorrow. look at the wynn shells they get up to maybe end of the low forties at best actually attempts will be upper forties at basso is going to be quite chilly tomorrow tomorrow evening into saturday morning it's going to feel like the twenties and
6:19 pm
be in the twenties to those with a windchill that's how cold it will feel when you're actually expose skin outside these are the actual air temperatures now dropping back by morning into the thirties for the inland areas near forty at the coastline only up in the low forties by the end of rush hour tomorrow waiting at some of the later bus stops and then by afternoon generally mid forties and again it won't feel even that warm it'll be more like the low forties are near forty and again a lot of sunshine even into saturday lot of snow out west to the mountains that shows you the cold air rushing in so windy and chilly. some would call it cold i probably should've to the temperature tonight down again to thirty nine with mid thirties in london then tomorrow forty six forty four saturday fifteen nineteen sixty two sunday monday and near sixty tuesday those of the three nice days in my opinion turn the stuff i die casting is no other athlete of the week yes when we come back will
