Hello everyone. Welcome to Sign1News. I’m Jethro Wooddall. Here are your top stories for today. Earlier this week in Nassau, County New York a fight broke out outside of a strip mall. 16-year-old Khaseen Morris was stabbed to death. Police say dozens of people took out their cell
phones to record the fight and put it on social media. Take a look at this video. We want to warn you this video may be disturbing
to some viewers. People watched and recorded the fight and did nothing to help. Morris was taken to a hospital where he later
died. Investigators say the fight Morris was involved
in was over a girl. Homicide detectives are now urging and warning
witnesses to come forward. Officials say police presence has now been
beefed up around the area where the fight took place. Nassau County put out a statement saying “If
you see someone is in serious danger, please use your phone to get help – not likes and
shares.” At least one person has been arrested and
charged with Morris’ death. The suspect is expected to be arraigned Thursday. On Thursday Tropical Depression Imelda caused
serious flooding in parts of southern Texas. The flooding covered roads and trapped people
in vehicles and homes. Some places have received more than 30 inches
of rain and another five to ten inches could come Thursday. Imelda dumped so much rain that emergency
crews had to conduct water rescues of people trapped by flood waters. In the city of the Beaumont, police say they
received hundreds of calls for rescues. Police were begging people not to drive because
most of the roads were flooded. Meteorologist say some areas might not get
relief until Friday afternoon. Imelda is currently in east Texas and is slowing
slowly making its way to Louisiana. Bond is denied for the airline mechanic accused
of trying to sabotage an American Airlines flight this summer. The judge also says the suspect may have sympathy
towards terrorists. Prosecutors say Alani had forwarded a terror video
on his phone to an unnamed individual. Experts worry about copycats. Abdul Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani will remain
in custody until his trial. The 60-year-old is charged with “willfully
damaging, destroying, disabling or wrecking an aircraft.” American Airlines has fired Alani saying it’s
cooperating with the investigation. According to court documents Alani said he
didn’t mean to harm passengers. But rather was upset with a contract dispute
and hoped tampering with the plane would lead to overtime pay. As of now he’s not facing any terror-related
charges. Experts are weighing in on how plant-based
milk stacks up against cow’s milk for kids. New health guidelines say most children under
five should avoid plant-based milk. That’s because milk made from rice, coconut,
oats or other blends may not have the key nutrients kids need in their early developmental
stages. Kids should also avoid diet drinks, flavored
milks, sugary drinks and limit how much juice they drink. The recommendation came from the Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Economy
of Pediatrics and the American Heart Association. Mercedes-Benz is looking to add some luxury
to the electric scooter industry. The German automaker gave the world a sneak
peek of its first e-scooter. Mercedes is teaming up with Swiss scooter
maker, Micro, to create the two-wheel ride. The company has not yet released many details
about the project. From their pictures, we see the e-scooter
will come with a classic black coating. It’s also branded with the Mercedes-Benz logo
on the handlebar stem. The Mercedes e-scooter is expected to hit
the market in early 2020. Starbucks is opening a new location in New
York dedicated to mobile order only. It’ll be near Penn Station in New York. A similar location already exists in China. An opening date has not yet been announced. The new location style will be called “Starbucks
Pick-Up.” Payments and orders will only be accepted
through the Starbucks app. And those are your top stories for today. I’m Jethro Wooddall. Thank you for watching Sign1News. Remember to follow us on all of our social
