Weather wise, South Florida will dry out after a wet Tuesday with less humidity and no rain in the forecast through the end of the work week before the humidity picks back up this weekend.
No. 1 - One person is in custody and another was rushed to the hospital after an early morning crash turned into a carjacking, leading to a chase and two other crashes in Miramar.
The initial crash took place near the intersection of Ives Dairy Road and I-95, where a woman crashed her car. After two other vehicles stopped to offer help, the woman jumped into the car of one Good Samaritan – which had a grandmother and 11-month-old child inside – and fled the scene.
No. 2 - A man accused of shooting his pregnant girlfriend at their Miami home has been arrested, authorities said Tuesday.
Raymond Xavier Deltoro, 29, is facing attempted murder and aggravated battery of a pregnant victim charges in the Saturday shooting at a home in the 4300 block of Northwest 11th Place, an arrest report said.
No. 3 - A new round of lawsuits are expected to be filed Wednesday on behalf of the families who lost loved ones in the deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year.
NBC 6 obtained a draft copy of one of lawsuits - with as many as 20 in total expected to filed starting this week - claiming the Broward School District, the sheriff’s office and others were negligent and should be held responsible for the deaths of 17 people inside the Parkland school on February 14, 2018.
No. 4 - Police in the Dominican Republic say the missing couple from New York who mysteriously vanished while vacationing in the Caribbean country are believed to be dead.
Orlando Moore, 40, and his 52-year-old girlfriend Portia Ravenelle, left Newark Liberty International Airport for a romantic getaway on March 23. They were supposed to fly back four days later. They never came home to Mount Vernon.
No. 5 - Benjamin Netanyahu appeared to be headed toward a historic fifth term as Israel's prime minister on Wednesday, with close-to-complete unofficial election results giving his right-wing Likud and other nationalist and religious parties a solid majority in parliament.
The outcome affirmed Israel's continued tilt to the right and further dimmed hopes of a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
No. 6 - It's the end of an era for Dwyane Wade's career with the Miami Heat at the AmericanAirlines Arena. After 14 seasons with the team, tributes were held during Tuesday night's game honoring the veteran guard.
Though the Heat won, the team was knocked out of the run for the playoffs so tonight will be D-Wade's last game of his career.
