shrugging big awards for dc's restaurant scene? breaking news on the president's travel ban. it blocks people from traveling into the u.s. from the 8 countries you see there, unless the people have a bona fide relationship with a person or business in the u.s. travelers from most of these countries started coming into the u.s. tonight. a federal judge in hawaii put a hold on the travel ban, saying it discriminates based on nationality. this judge did leave in place the ban from venezuela and australia. this is the trump administration's third attempt, and like the two above, the court battle continues. justice department plans to appeal. to a story breaking in our area. new details in the murder of a college student, the victim army second lieutenant richard collins stabbed to death, waiting for a bus on the

on the campus. >> reporter: richard collins was a classmate, a mentor and friend. >> richard told me about the military program here and bowie state university, and one of the best programs i've been a part of. >> reporter: he was killed  because of his race, something students still find hard to believe. >> you know, our history, we come from a terrible past, and for this to still go on now? like really? he was on the right path. >> i didn't think it was right, and i didn't think it was. [ inaudible ] i think that it is very good. i think that it's the start of, you know, some justice. >> reporter: many say his presence will
11:05 pm
>> he helped me to push through whatever i've been going through through. >> collins was in rotc student, and just about to graduate from bowie state when he was killed. in may, his family accepted a posthumous degree on his behalf. the third breaking story, report of a shooter at howard university in the district. we're going to answer some questions about this in a moment. but first, let's set the scene. dc police raced to the campus on georgia avenue after a student's ex-boyfriend threatened her repeatedly, and warned her about being on campus. the school ended up on lock- down for hours. in the end, no shooter, no gun. the shooting scare came at a busy time on campus. the run up to howard's legendary homecoming celebration set for this weekend. dc police moved quickly once they got the call, sending more than 100 officers to the
11:06 pm
that active shooter scare at howard stopped a lot of people, right in their tracks. but for about an hour, it was a ton of confusion for students on campus, and people looking for information online. to put it bluntly, no one seemed to know what the hell was going on. buildings locked down, other evacuated, police swarming the campus, and ominous tweets about an active shooter. let me show you the time line of what played out. have a look. a flurry of tweets posted about shots fired between 12:13, and 12:20. after that dc police tweeted they were investigating reports of an active shooter at 12:21. i tweeted at 12:30, saying look, nothing is confirmed, but i'm urging people not to spread false information. about that time, people were asks why the university didn't alert people. then at 12:23, there was
11:07 pm
notified of a shooter. the confusion continued until after 2:00. at 2:04, police tweeted the scene was clear, and a text alert from howard saying the same thing at 2:09. the take-away: how easily false reports can spread, and be shared hundreds of times. but people were left wondering, why the university took so long to confirm the incident while students were still just walking around campus? tonight, we wanted to verify. what is the notification protocol for potential emergencies at howard university? howard sent us a statement from interim chief of police joys, saying "we follow a protocol of immediately noticing our campus community opinion confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation. this is what we followed today. i issued an alert to the muncy as soon as as i learned of the anonymous calls to the metropolitan polde
11:08 pm
things. the his tear y when the local news -- hysteria, when the local news statement sent out tweet, people freaked out, and that's when they started to tweet about an active shooter as if it was confirmed. so wait until you have the facts. secondly, major props to the howard student run newspaper, the hilltop. they tweeted out the facts without any hype. at 12:22. alleged threat on campus. police have evacuated a building. fourth street has been closed. you have something you want verified? reach out to us. we will separate fact from fiction. final note from howard university before we move on, a swastika, the number 666, and other images were discovered in a women's rest courtroom in the college of medicine there --

medicine. agents have investigating that as a hate crime. and now, let's check in with the chief who is standing on the terrace with the first frost advisory of the season. >> and it covers about everyone, adam. if you look carefully, you can see my breath a little bit. what do we do with the frost? you want to bring plants in, mums are okay, you want the weather accepts tiff plants -- sensitive plants. cover them, uncover them after 8:00 a.m. the frost is close to an average day, on the money for winchester tomorrow. again, all of the metro area covered with the exception of calvert county, prince george, the district, month guam county and points -- montgomery county, and points north and west. some of you may want to allow five minutes extra to scrape the windshield. low temperatures, 45 downtown, no problem, but 34 up in lateville for

11:11 pm
what happened inside? >> reporter: here's what's on my mind. the nfl made a huge step in the right direction. roger goodell stood right here talking about how the nfl and the players had open dialogue, trying to find a way to promote social change. >> that's a win for the players. >> reporter: never once did the owners behind these very doors talk about forcing nfl players to stand during the national anthem. i love the fact the owners cleared the air, stating the nfl community respects our country, our flag, our military and our national anthem. so that means next time someone protests on sunday, they are just protesting against social injustice. jerry jones was walking down the very steps when a protestor confronted him telling him, look at the video of police officers getting away with murder? why can't nfl players protest against that? i believe the heat was on the nfl owners in the hotel during the owners meeting, and they knew t i love the saying

closed mouth doesn't get fed. as we wait for this to get resolved, one thing is sure. the n-- nfl-pa had a chance to eat. what dc -- list of places with the coveted michelin stars. a facebook page about texas that racked up a quarter million followers. all false, it was put together by who else? the russians! we'll let you know about that. and we'll talk why this massive navy hospital ship has less than 20 patients on board as thousands wait for medical care just a few miles away. you're watching the news at 11:00,

that. congress also buzzing about a new plan that could have saved obamacare. at least for now. it would have covered the federal payments made to insurance companies for two years, and given states more flexibility in how they regulate health insurance. >> it is a short-term solution so that we don't have this very dangerous little period including dangerous period for insurance companies, by the way. >> the president's only creation, he's the one who decided to stop the payments to insurance companies and keep obamacare premiums down. the president got back on message later when he tweeted any increase in obamacare premiums is the fault of democrats forgiving us a product that never had a chance of working. you know what? it's pointless, that plan, yeah, it stalled. senate gop leaders are not sold on
11:17 pm
republicans in the house said no way! next: right now, look at tonight's headlines and the crisis in puerto rico. it's been nearly a month since hurricane irma and maria hit puerto rico, and 80% of the americans living there still don't have power. now, raw sewage has started pouring into rivers and reservoirs. one of the few sources of clean drinking water for people who can't reach distribution sites. the medical situation has been dire all along. that's why the navy sent the hospital ship, the comfort, and anchored it off the coast it has 250 beds, just waiting to help people. cnn is reporting just 13 patients are on board. why? there appears to be a break down in communication on how medical facilities are to transfer patients in need to the ship that's ready to treat them. that's stocked with drugs,

11:19 pm
the first big bummer, 14 restaurants are on the list, but that's lower than new york, san francisco and chicago. second disappoint, not one of these reached a 3 star rating. that means make a detour to the spots, but nothing bigger than that. there might be a 3-star up here, one day. >> they try to avoid the this yo-yo rating where they don't want to give somebody a star, and have to take it away later. so when they give a star, they want to be sure that someone deserves it, and they will be able to maintain that star. >> this list is not getting any smaller. it says all spots are holding steady. but with that quality comes cost. some of the dinners are in the $200 range. so this guy was destined to be someone's
