>> reporter: are you sorry for what you did? >> walking in hand calms dante eiland no longer a wanted man. a judge issued a warrant for his arrest nine months ago and the u.s. marshal's service never captured him and court papers showed they had his home address which was only steps from where the shooting occurred. delaware county district attorney jack weighland says prioritizing which wanted criminal to search for first is generally a judgment call. >> it's usually up to the discretion of the individual, probation, parole department and their supervisors. >> state court records show a series of drug dealing and possession arrests starting in 2001 and then in 2005 a judge sentenced him to nine years for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon followed by three years of supervised release, and that is where more problems began. late last june eiland told his
probation officer he would be moving from this usher darby home to where the shooting occurred and he ceased reporting as instructed by this officer on july 17, 2015. after six weeks of address visit, phone calls and e-mails, on september 18th of last year his probation officer told the judge, quote, mr. island's current whereabouts are unknown. the judge issued a warrant just three days later, but when we asked about the nine-month delay today, the u.s. marshal service said, quote, this warrant was one of approximately 1,000 active federal, state and local warrants currently in our case load. we can't discuss the specifics surrounding this case due to the ongoing investigation. we found other red flags, too, months old. island's probation conditions prohibited the use of any controlled substance but court records say he failed 11 drug tests during his probation and,
quote, mr. island reports that he uses marijuana to cope with stress. island was also required to complete a drug treatment program, but he missed so many appointments by last summer, even his drug treatment provider was fed up. the d.a. says warrants like island's are often held in the system until the suspect's next encounters police for say a traffic violation or other similar u.n.-in. >> generally if we're non-reporting violations these types of issues, generally they are not spend sending out teams to try to kick down doors, apprehend them, forcibly arrest them on these types of issues. >> reporter: unfortunately in this case island's next encounter with police was with officer dorman. >> nbc 10's george spencer reporting. turning now to our weather. radar tracking some changes. can you expect the return of rain and maybe even some thunderstorms tomorrow, but earlier today a different story.

this summer marks 100 years since the first deadly shark attack along the jersey coast. that attack helped spark a century's worth of awareness and appreciation for sharks. on july 1st, 1916 a shark killed a man in beach haven ocean county and did not end there. in what became known as 12 days of terror four more people were killed and a fifth was hurt. the new jersey maritime mousse yurm has as collection of articles and artifacts from that time. the attacks brought a new level of awareness about sharks in the ocean. >> it caused a panic along the whole jersey shore to the point that the governor -- that they had considered fencing in all the swimming areas. >> it's long been believed that the attack spree inspired the book and movie "jaws" although the author has repeatedly denied
that. >> and, of course, they probably needed a bigger boat. we don't need any kind of precautions tonight to get off the waters. there's no strong thunderstorms around. gusty thunderstorms. it's cloudy. there's some rain approaching preaching the area, but that's about it. tomorrow is a different story. now we do have some rain. you can see part of it is coming to philadelphia. it's really broken up in delaware and it's already cleared up in much of burks county and the lehigh valley, but we continue to see some of it approaching philadelphia itself. northern suburbs, just north of norristown and getting a little bit heavier rain. the leading edge right near center city philadelphia right now and mostly on the lighter side. abbington in it, warrington and new town and cherry hill just about to get a little bit of rain out of it. future cast showing that this continues to weaken as we go through the evening. and so we're not expecting a
whole lot during the night tonight unless you're down towards new jersey and southern new jersey, but tomorrow it's a different story as we start in the morning. you can see the yellows and reds already indicating potential showers and storms and some of that is on the heavier side, and, of course, it really peaks later into the afternoon and evening hours with the heat of the day. look at that. a potential line of storms coming through during the late afternoon and early evening hours tomorrow. the temperature really knocked down by these showers as we go into northern suburbs. west cowen 70 degrees and well into the 80s earlier and a similar story in bedminister at 75 and while, of course, it's much warmer closer to philadelphia where the rain has just started. now, as we go into the holiday here, of all the showers and
storms tomorrow, that's the wettest day of the rest of the week. wednesday and thursday looking generally pretty dry. friday we could be in a shower or storm with a weak front. not too much rain. saturday hot and humid and, again, right now, sunday, it's looking like we could see some showers or thunderstorms, but most of the models do push everything out and give us a dry but warm, not too humid fourth of july itself. >> i'm john clark. we're going to hear from eric lindros on getting elected to the hockey hall of fame. phillies are ready for run of the vince velazquez and one of the coaches thinks one of its big men will be traded. that's next.

goes into the season with all the big men and tells wip today we have to find a balanced team. finally, how cool are summer camps when you can learn from your favorite nba players. how about playing a star one-on-one. watch james harden. watch the ball closely. where did it go? the kid has no idea. he flipped it over the kid's head and look at the kid's reaction. he's still defending and that's good defense. that's awesome. i'm john clark. we're back right after this. ♪ maybe almond breeze tastes so good because it's the only almondmilk made with california-grown blue diamond almonds. ♪ of course, if you ask one of our almond growers... there's no maybe about it.
