treated this morning. now, nearly an hour after philadelphia police arrived and finding victims, neighbors came up to them saying they had found a third man who had been shot. neighbors who were walking throughout the housing complex apparently found his body in the bushes. that's an area police had not canvassed yet. so thanks to the neighbors helping police out, police learned there was a third victim much more critically injured. he was found here. he was pronounced dead here. the victim's family has been here to the scene. they've spoken to police. investigators know the victim's name and age. they tell me they're not releasing that yet. they're not ready to do so. as for the suspect, there's limited information. he was last seen running away wearing dark clothing and a mask. i'll be back in the next half hour with an update. reporting live in spring garden, katy zachry, nbc10 news. to breaking news in chester county. the man wanted for shooting his

the topic of conversation. >> might not agree with those guys taking the knee, but they say that's what america's all about is being able to take that knee. >> i'm dead serious when i'm saying, okay, i hated it. >> because of the kneeling and because of the comments from the president, people are more open to talk about things. >> in alabama, vice president pence told a crowd he stands with president trump on standing for the national anthem. >> we've all got a right to our opinions, but i don't think it's too much to ask the players and the national football league to stand for our national anthem. >> on friday, president trump suggested nfl players who protest during the national anthem should be fired. players widely oppose the view citing the first amendment and calling for unity. so we're asking you to weigh in. what do you think? we're sure you've had this conversation by now. let us know what you think by going to our nbc10 facebook page and join the conversation. in philadelphia's northern

sure that every child had protection, to make sure that no child was betrayed. >> beau biden died two years ago after a battle with brain cancer. the iraq war veteran and former state attorney general was 46 years old. we're starting with a look at radar and satellite. this is a nice, wide picture, different from yesterday's picture. down to the south, closer than yesterday, rain bands clipping into parts of the outer banks of north carolina. all we're getting are some of the clouds that are rolling across our area. so today instead of a totally sunny day, we are going to see some scattered clouds in place. a little more dense cloud cover around coastal points. 90-degree days in 2017. we told you it would be a very close call to cross the line, and we did. 26 days now how many we have seen officially in philly,
