    It’s Thursday, October 10th – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.

    No. 1 – Weather wise, a rain free morning across South Florida will bring scattered showers and storms by the afternoon ahead of what looks like a very pleasant weekend. Keep your NBC 6 app handy for push alerts of any severe weather as well as First Alert Doppler 6000.

    No. 2 - Arson investigators arrived at the scene of an early morning fire at a nightclub in the Flagami section of Miami.

    Reports say the fire took place inside the Studio 45 nightclub located at 4545 Northwest 7th Street, adding the left window to the club was broken and the door was left open with the fire going on one of the pool tables inside.

    No. 3 - A football player who grew up in Miami died Tuesday while practicing with his college team in central Florida.

    Officials from Warner University say senior wide receiver Theodore "Boobie" Hammonds, who played at Carol City High School, collapsed during a non-contact drill at the school's campus near Lake Wales. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died. The cause of death has not been determined.

    No. 4 - Inside the Miami-Dade Police Real Time Crime Center, shots can be heard fired from miles away in real time. The technology that makes it possible is called ShotSpotter - an audio detection system that uses a network of sensors to detect gunshots fired across the county.

    But some have questioned the multi-million dollar system's role in reducing crime. For more on this story, click here for NBC 6’s report from Dan Krauth.

    No. 5 - The combative White House letter vowing to defy the "illegitimate" impeachment inquiry has actually put President Donald Trump on a more certain path to charges. His refusal to honor subpoenas or allow testimony would likely play into a formal accusation against him.

    The letter sent to House leaders by White House Counsel Pat Cipollone Tuesday evening declared the president would not cooperate with the investigation — a clear reason, Democrats say, to write an article of impeachment charging him with obstruction.

    No. 6 - At first, Cinthya Lavin thought the email she received was the real deal - the email she thought had come from Netflix asked her to update her credit card information by clicking on a link.

    But, she told NBC 6 Responds she almost clicked on it until she remembered she doesn't directly pay for Netflix – and heard from the Better Business Bureau that they too had received similar phishing emails. Click here to see her story.
