It’s Monday, December 24th – and NBC 6 has the top six stories you need to know for the day.

Weather wise, clear skies and breezy winds are in the forecast through the Christmas holiday with high temperatures reaching the mid 70s.

No. 1 - North Miami Beach police are investigating a fatal shooting involving a restaurant owner. The incident reportedly happened last night in the area of West Dixie Highway, between Northeast 151st Street and 155th Street.

No. 2 - The Miami Beach Fire Rescue Department said four people were injured after a balcony collapsed.

The second-floor balcony collapsed onto an empty vehicle. The four people on the balcony were hospitalized but are listed in stable condition at Mount Sinai Medical Center.

No. 3 - The family of a Miami-Dade teenager are asking for the public’s help after the 16-year-old reportedly has not been seen since Friday afternoon.

The mother of 16-year-old Kaylee Rodriguez said she last saw her daughter in the Cutler Bay area near U.S. 1 and Southwest 184th Street after dropping Rodriguez off for a job interview.

No. 4 - A top White House official warned the current government shutdown could stretch into January.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said he was waiting to hear from Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York about a counteroffer the White House presented Schumer over the weekend.

Mulvaney would only say the offer was between Trump's $5.7 billion request and $1.3 billion Democrats have offered.

No. 5 - Blake Bortles came off the bench late in the third quarter with the score tied and provided a spark Sunday, helping the Jacksonville Jaguars eliminate the Miami Dolphins from the AFC playoff race by winning 17-7.

The Dolphins (7-8) will sit out the playoffs for the 15th time in the past 17 years, and they'll finish at .500 or worse for the ninth time in the past 10 seasons.

No. 6 – Good news for children this holiday: the government may be partially shut down, but the military says the NORAD Tracks Santa won't be affected.

The tradition that started in 1855 has since mushroomed into an elaborate operation that attracts tens of thousands of calls every year to 1-877-HI-NORAD.
