feldman. a young season but it's a game that could go down as the worst moment so far. >> absolutely. people knew going in that this year lion's team was a lot better than last year's team. 19 straight losses but only two this year. they weren't going to go 0-16 this year. having said all that, the redskins didn't want to be that team. you know, that team where the streak ends? the lions would strike first. 99 yards on 12 plays, capped off by a beautiful pass from stafford. lions up 13-7, airs it out, looking for johnson. horton runs into him, pass interference. they score again. they march all the way down the field, campbell to cartwright. four yards for the touchdown, skins within five. last chance, eight seconds left, need a touchdown, this play, no touchdown. the redskins fall 19-14 to the

6:13 pm
and shut down everything. many of the employees remember that explosion that you were talking about, maureen. it didn't take much to get them out of the store when fire officials came and told them to leave because they had been concerned about another explosion here. the one that caused that explosion earlier this year, everyone seemed to remember that around here. and fire officials say that this is very similar to that one. they believe that some of the natural gas actually leaked up through the ground, through electrical piping, and that is what they believe caused this incident today. >> it sounds like the same exact set of circumstances is occurring now as it did back in may. why is this occurring again? it's something that we're going to have to be involved in and looking at to make sure it's fixed and doesn't happen again. >> reporter: all right. so how close was this to causing another explosion? uthorities say they really don't know for sure, but just to give you an idea, when they
6:14 pm
walked in they took readings of the natural gas, it was 3.5% of the air inside. it only takes 4% to spark off an explosion. we'll definitely have more on this coming up tonight at 10, maureen, including talking to some of the people who were inside. that's a little bit later. now back to you. >> thank you. we move now to a frightening story in maryland. three men wearing masks stormed a home in the middle of the night and killed a father of four. as fox 5's tisha thompson reports, police believe the killing may have been a hit. >> reporter: even though the police department says the crime happened between 2 and 3:00 in the morning, neighbors say they didn't see or hear anything until they we up sunday morning and found police tape all over their neighbor's house. neighbors say the victim, tyron richardson, lived inside this home with his wife and four young children. >> there were three masked gunmans, two with guns, one without.
6:15 pm
>> reporter: the men only went after richardson who died of trauma to his upper body and left the rest of his family unharmed. they escaped by stealing a black mercedes from the home. >> we also have another vehicle that followed the mercedes and it was either a chrysler 30 or a black cadillac that followed the mercedes out of the area. >> reporter: public records show richardson had filed for bankruptcy less than two weeks ago and went to court in 2002 for weapons charges. that case was later dropped. >> it doesn't get any worse than a man being murdered in his own house in front of his children and his wife. >> the community has been ringing my phone off the hook since 4:00 this morning and this is something that has shocked the community. >> reporter: as president of the local home owners association, mark polk says neighbors wants extra police patrols in the area because there's been a rush of break-ins here over the last few weeks. we're watching and making sure that we receive the response
6:16 pm
