"Each 12 03 We welcome you in on a Thursday afternoon. December 3rd partly cloudy skies right now 50 degrees in Washington. Good afternoon. I'm Deborah Feinstein and I'm Mark Lewis with the top local stories we're following at this hour new developments in the killing of a one year old boy in D. C last night. The mayor, as well as chief Peter Newsom just held a news conference. They say the boy was riding in his father's car when he was shot. Let's go live to W. T. O. P s making clarity with more details. Mark 15 month old Carmelo Duncan is now the city's youngest victim of gun violence this year. Ah, year that has already seen a 20% increase in homicides on do you could feel the emotion from both the mayor and the chief of police when discussing what happened last night at 9 35. In the evening. Basically, the chief said that they had a shot spotter technology alert nearby investigators that there were shots fired in the area of Central and Southern Avenue southeast. When they arrived. The baby had already been taken to the hospital. Apparently there was a fire crew that was there an engine and an ambulance that we're responding to another medical emergency. And Carmelo's father saw them pulled over and handed the baby over to them to take to the hospital. Unfortunately, he did not make it. We understand from police that the baby was shot multiple times. They don't know exactly where he was in the car. But there was another child in the car as well. Who is fine? And Carmelo's father was driving the car. There was a baby seat in the back, caught in the back seat of the car. So the chief, you know, speculated that he was in the back seat, but that he's not sure we knew that he was shot several times. The mayor called this an unfathomable tragedy. Right now, there's not a lot as far as leads that they're sharing with the public other than the fact that they saw a dark gray SUV with heavily tinted dark windows in the area. However, given the child's age, given this photo that we're sharing on w t o p dot com you see this baby? I mean, it just breaks your heart and the amount of tragedy that this community has suffered. The cheer from gun violence is just can't be, you know, can't be explained so apparently. According to the chief and the mayor, This entire community is just outraged. And they're going to do everything they can to try and find who did this, Including asking the community to look for any, you know, Surveillance video. They might have businesses to look at any surveillance video. And also, they're offering a $60,000 reward to any tip that leads to a conviction. In this case, reporting live Meghan clarity. W T O P news. Okay, thank you. Making the Corona virus has taken a deadly and destructive toll on the elderly Montgomery County now making some plans to get that vaccine out to elder Care facilities. Hopefully in the weeks ahead when it comes to a covert 19 vaccine, the county's HHS department will work.

everyone got excited how did Madonna study work what were signs is looking for after the vaccine was administered so this is a safety trial primarily they're looking for any adverse effects like fever or any kind of reaction to the vaccine but they did of find and they had eight patients who received boastful low and medium dose and they had it levels in their blood a month and a half later of an virus neutralizing antibodies and this is a sign that they may have immunity it's a sign not a guarantee how many more people would have to be useful more trial runs to nail this down that this is a factor of on a grand scale we need a lot more testing before they can say anything about whether it works so this was kind of like an early hint and a good that tends to keep on going but already an internet has approval to start on a larger trial with six hundred people in it which will begin to test more rigorously whether it's effective or not and after that they've announced they're going to do a much larger trial with thousands of people in it in starting in July so we'd still have a ways to go any possibility about when this mode journal vaccine could become available if it's approved for public use the White House has been trying to speed up vaccine development so that they stink hundreds of millions of doses could be available by the end of the year other experts have had some doubts about whether that's really reasonable but it certainly is a goal so much depends on what happens in the next few months so if during this larger trial there are a lot of cases in the group

"Of a big demonstration planned for early next week this morning to flush the cell W. T. O. P.'s Max Smith is covering on what's happening in Richmond this long weekend to start some background Monday is Martin Luther king junior day so it's a big day when the legislature is always in session so people call it lobby day people have the day off from work they go down to Richmond they hang out with their legislators and say Hey please do this for me well one of the things this year that's a big issue with the new democratic majority are a series of gun bills the Senate could actually pass some of its first gun bills and in this case the Virginia citizens defense week is one of the pro gun groups they've established a big rally scheduled for Monday and then it is kind of morphed into this bigger thing with people from across the country deciding they're gonna come there's a lot of threats based on false information online some people based on real concerns but some based on these false pieces online and so state police capitol police Richmond police and the governor say these credible threats against lawmakers and others have led to this state of emergency declared around the state capital and that does include new security measures for this weekend and Monday that include a ban on weapons in capitol square what's it going to mean for Monday's demonstration on how those pro second amendment protesters are demonstrators will try to get their points across it depends on where exactly everyone wants to go this ban applies only right in and around capital square if you're across the street it's unclear whether that would change anything about what you want to do it also doesn't change whether you can physically go there it just changes whether you could bring any weapons and that's far beyond guns you know anything like nun chucks anything like that and so it changes that but from a perspective of how many people are showing up state police do not and Capital please do not think this changes that still expecting thousands of people at minimum alright let's talk about a gender equality Max and the equal rights amendment which is poised to be ratified in Virginia by the full house and Senate but just because Virginia passes it doesn't mean we're going to have a national equal rights amendment does it correct the house of delegates voted to pass it Senate voted to pass of the Senate voted passed in past years this is the first time the house has voted so those resolutions have to cross over but in the next few days or week they will formally vote to ratify the amendment the problem for the supporters is there's a congressional deadline that was put on for decades beyond so it's unclear whether the states still have the ability to ratify it there's another question about whether all the states that did once ratify it are still holding up on that some tried to repeal that so ultimately all this means is that the lawsuits will be what ultimately.
