It’s Wednesday, July 24th – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.
Weather wise, an isolated storm sticks around the forecast in the morning before temperatures rise to the mid-90s for your afternoon highs.
No. 1 - Two people died and two were injured after a shooting Tuesday in Pembroke Park, officials said.
Before 8:30 p.m., a vehicle with three gunshot victims inside showed up at the South Broward District Office, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office. Those three victims were taken to the hospital, where one of them died, BSO said.
No. 2 - A woman says a group of riders on all-terrain vehicles took over the streets of Brickell, taunting drivers and even damaging her car in the process.
Cellphone video captured the seconds after the encounter between the riders and the couple, who was in their car Sunday outside the Brickell City Centre. The woman, who did not want to be identified, told NBC 6 that one of the riders started performing a stunt on his bike until he lost control.
No. 3 - Democrats want incriminating, hidden-till-now details about Donald Trump and Russia. Republicans want Robert Mueller to concede it was all a waste of time and money, if not an outright hoax.
Neither side is likely to get just what it wants Wednesday, but the former special counsel's first open testimony on his investigation has Washington and the rest of the political world in a high state of anticipation just the same.
No. 4 - A Puerto Rico judge issued search warrants for the cellphones of government officials involved in a crude online chat whose leak has set off a political crisis that threatens to bring down the U.S. territory's governor.
Kelvin Carrasco, a spokesman for the island's Justice Department, said Tuesday that the warrants were approved overnight and issued to those who had yet to turn over their phones. The possibility that some of the 12 men in the chat, including former and current government officials, could face legal trouble deepened the crisis around Gov. Ricardo Rosselló.
No. 5 - One of South Florida’s favorite times of the year is here – lobster mini season. Miami-Dade County officials, in partnership with the Marine Patrol Unit, released strict guidelines for this year’s lobster divers.
The mini season starts at midnight on Wednesday and lasts until midnight on Thursday. Spiny lobsters, with carapaces larger than three inches, are in season during the last consecutive Wednesday and Thursday of each July.
No. 6 - This season, South Florida has had some record hot days with temperatures hitting 98 degrees twice. That heat was especially hard to handle for a Hialeah Gardens family who went weeks with no power.
