It’s Thursday, February 28th – and NBC 6 has the top six stories you need to know.

Weather wise, the month of February ends with clearer skies but temperatures still above average with highs in the mid-80s.

No. 1 - A double amputee pulled out a gun he was hiding in his wheelchair and opened fire Wednesday evening inside a hospital in Palm Beach County, Florida, striking a doctor who was trying to subdue him.

The shooting happened at approximately 6:20 p.m. at the VA Medical Center in the 7000 block of North Military Trail. FBI officials identified the suspected gunman as 59-year-old Larry Ray Bon, who is from Michigan but resides in West Palm Beach.

No. 2 - Talks between President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un collapsed Thursday after the two sides failed to bridge a standoff over U.S. sanctions on the reclusive nation, a dispiriting end to high-stakes meetings meant to disarm a global threat.

Trump blamed the breakdown on North Korea's insistence that all the punishing sanctions the U.S. has imposed on Pyongyang be lifted without the North committing to eliminate its nuclear arsenal.

No. 3 - The trial for former Palm Beach Gardens officer Nouman Raja continues today.

Raja is accused of killing Corey Jones back in 2016. The defense claims Jones pointed his gun at Raja twice, forcing him to open fire.

No. 4 - Former Marjory Stoneman Douglas school resource officer Scot Peterson came face to face with a survivor.

Video shows Kyle Kashov confronting Peterson during a one-minute elevator ride at the Broward County Courthouse where he was heard telling Peterson that 14 of his classmates died and they are never coming back.

No. 5 - Miami Beach is hoping to make spring break a little safer this year. New rules ban alcoholic drinks, marijuana, coolers and inflatable devices along the famous beaches.

No. 6 - Within weeks of reporting Service America had closed its doors, the NBC 6 Responds unit received phone calls and emails from frustrated homeowners who said they didn't get a refund they were promised and couldn't get answers from the company.

Within weeks all of the NBC 6 viewers who reached out to us received their refund checks. For more on how that took place, click on this link.
