3 Women Shot in Attempted Bank Robbery; 3 Detained
07/19/2018 5:29pm

Three people are being questioned by police after three women were injured during an attempted bank robbery in Fort Worth Thursday morning, the FBI says.FBI Dallas Special Agent in Charge Eric Jackson confirmed the attempted robbery during a news conference Thursday afternoon and said a vehicle seen at the bank during the robbery led them to the home in Fort Worth where three people were later detained for questioning. Woman Douses Bank Lobby in Gasoline Then Demands Cash Earlier in the day, Fort Worth police Sgt. Chris Britt said at least two people entered the Veritex Bank on the 2400 block of Merrick Street at about 9:20 a.m. and shot three employees, all women. New Record Set: High Temps Lead to Record Demands for Power Investigators have not yet determined what prompted the armed robbers to begin shooting, though Jackson said Thursday afternoon no money was taken in the attempt.The injured women were all hospitalized in serious condition, though their injuries were not considered life threatening. Other employees inside the bank were not injured in the shooting. Man Charged With Attacking Girl, 12, Near School Bus About two hours after the shooting, Fort Worth police's SWAT and Special Response Team assisted the FBI in surrounding a home near the 5700 block of Blackmore Avenue and evacuated adjacent residents.The FBI confirmed Thursday afternoon investigators arrived at the home based on a vehicle seen at the bank earlier in the morning.Britt confirmed earlier in the afternoon three people outside the home were detained by police and were being questioned about the shooting.As of this writing, police have not confirmed if the three people detained were involved in the attempted robbery and shooting at the bank.At about 2:45 p.m., Britt said search warrants had been obtained and SWAT and FBI had entered the home on Blackmore Avenue and found no other people during a preliminary sweep.Britt said Fort Worth police would be assisting the FBI in gathering evidence from the home and that the police presence in the area would be significantly scaled back.Closer to the bank, investigators are looking for witnesses who may have seen anything unusual near the intersection of Camp Bowie Boulevard and Merrick Street, including one or more people running from the bank. Anyone with information that may help the investigation is asked to call the Fort Worth Police Department.Police are looking at security cameras to get a better idea of what took place inside the bank and hopefully come away with an accurate description of who shot the women.Britt said the FBI is assisting the Fort Worth Police Department's Robbery Unit in the investigation since the shooting took place inside a bank.According to FBI statistics, violence in a bank robbery is very rare. In 2016, only 3 percent of bank robberies included violence, or 146 out of 4,251 reported robberies. Only 43 of those robberies, or 1 percent, involved firing a weapon.NBC 5's Maria Guerrero, Jack Highberger, Eline de Bruijn, Charles Nichelson and Cody Lillich contributed to this report.

Drowning, Heat Combo Prompts Safety Warning for Swimmers
07/19/2018 6:25pm

The heat may have played a role in the drowning death of a man Wednesday in Oak Point, police say.Cesar Sanchez-Torres, of Sanger, and his co-workers took a break from their construction job by taking a swim in a nearby retention pond. Woman Douses Bank Lobby in Gasoline Then Demands Cash Witnesses said he cramped up and went under. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office ruled his death a drowning.The drowning has prompted a familiar message from doctors for anyone going in the water -- one that's worth repeating. New Record Set: High Temps Lead to Record Demands for Power Doctors say this is the kind of weather that can sneak up on a person, especially when swimming. “We are seeing multiple patients coming in with things like rashes or cramps due to the heat,” said Dr. Monica Mikkilineni, a physician at Medical City Denton. Man Charged With Attacking Girl, 12, Near School Bus [[488668751,C,600,338]]Temperatures Thursday set a record. It was already 100 degrees by noon and went on to break a 93-year-old record for this day when the mercury hit 108 degrees.“I know through the weekend it's going to be hot,” said Jan Webb, of Little Elm. “I heard 105, 107."For Webb and her friends, beating the heat meant taking the kids swimming at Little Elm Beach. Keeping them safe meant being prepared and having plenty of sunscreen, and water.“We like to come out here, stay hydrated, get in and out of the water and enjoy the day,” said Webb.Mikkilineni said when swimming, pay attention to the warning signs of dehydration.“It could be simple things like muscles aching or light-headedness, or headaches,” she said. “Things you could brush off as being just tired, but things you should pay special attention to especially if you're spending a lot of time outside."Mikkilineni said common sense is the best move – avoiding alcohol, and drinks that are high in sugar, such as fruit juice or energy drinks.“Yeah, you have to be smart,” said Webb. “Especially with the kids.”Especially with a forecast that shows no sign of letting up, at least through next week.[[320914641,C]]Photo Credit: NBC 5 News This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

Cities Applying Data from Waze to Fight Traffic
07/19/2018 6:38pm

Traffic is a way of life most days in fast-growing North Texas, which is why cities are looking to high-tech solutions to get cars moving. This week, Plano announced it will share information about upcoming construction projects and road closures with the traffic navigation app, Waze. In exchange, Waze is sharing user data with Plano.The city’s Traffic Management Center, or TMC, already uses a network of cameras and censors to monitor 235 intersections across the city and change the timing of the green and red lights to combat congestion. Woman Douses Bank Lobby in Gasoline Then Demands Cash “We are able to change signal timing from the TMC so if an accident occurs out there or a storm comes in, we’re able to modify it or adjust the signal timing to keep the traffic moving,” said Plano’s Senior Traffic Engineer Rama Dhanikonda.If there’s a wreck on Highway 75, engineers can see traffic coming through detours in downtown Plano and adjust the signal timing to keep intersections as open as possible. New Record Set: High Temps Lead to Record Demands for Power But the views from the TMC can be expanded with data from Waze, says Dhanikonda.The app uses crowd-sourced information from users to monitor driver speeds and determine where traffic is backing up. The app uses the information to help navigate users around problems. Users can also report obstacles in the road, potholes and wrecks. Man Charged With Attacking Girl, 12, Near School Bus “If a driver sees an object on the road or a vehicle stopped on the shoulder, he can report that to Waze and other users behind him get a notification,” explained Dhanikonda.That data is now available to Plano.Other cities are using similar agreements to inform its traffic management systems.In Frisco, Brian Moen, the city’s assistant director of engineering says Waze can help pinpoint the location of wrecks when 911 callers aren’t sure of the exact address or intersection.“We can get the response there as quickly as possible to get people the help that they need but also getting that incident off the roadway to keep the system reliable,” said Moen.The data Waze can offer is extensive, says Dhanikonda. So, the city is currently developing an application to interpret the data stream and convert the Waze user experience on the roads into information the city can use to improve traffic flow.Plano says the Waze user data is anonymous and can also be used to inform decisions on infrastructure improvements.“It we see a lot of congestion, repeated congestion, recurring congestion that tells policy makers yeah, there’s some repeating issue there,” said Dhanikonda. “Maybe we should do something else, a bypass route or establish another connection for drivers to use.”Waze data offers another tool as Collin County communities grow fast, said Dhanikonda.Traffic engineers in the city say the number of traffic signals has doubled to keep up with demand in the last 20 years. Engineers estimate as many as five billion vehicles travel through Plano city streets every year.While Waze doesn’t charge cities for the data, there is a cost for cities to manage the information and use it.The Regional Transportation Council of the North Central Texas Council of Governments is awarding cities grant money for Waze data sharing and traffic signal data sharing programs. Traffic signal data sharing involves facilitating communication with certain “connected vehicles” to improve traffic flow. Vehicles may get a countdown to a green light that is displayed in the dashboard for drivers or instant traffic information.In June, NCTCOG says it gave Plano $25,000 to explore Waze data sharing and $22,000 towards a future traffic signal data sharing program. Over two years, the city has been awarded a total of $97,000.NCTCOG recently gave similar grants to Frisco and McKinney. It’s also awarded money for smart traffic technology programs to Lewisville, Denton, Arlington, Cedar Hill and Burleson last month to encourage cities to look at new traffic solutions in North Texas.“A lot of work goes into it and we’re trying our best to keep things moving as fast as possible,” said Dhanikonda.Photo Credit: NBC 5 News
