Here's your daily look at five stories we're following:

1. Police-involved shooting: A man is in critical condition after a police-involved shooting in Southwest Philadelphia. Circumstances of the incident remain under investigation.

2. How Phila. family saved Jews during WWII: A documentary being screened tonight at the National Museum of American Jewish history shows how a family in Manila helped 1,300 Jews escape from the Nazis and get to the Philippines. "Rescue in the Philippines" tells the story of Herbert Frieder -- who moved to Elkins Park after World War II -- and his brothers.

3. Heroin ODs: Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato is slated to recognize two Seaside Heights police officers who have saved victims of heroin overdoses by treating them with Narcan. Tuesday's incident was the second time an officer with the department saved a life with the nasal spray since first responders across the county began being equipped with the drug earlier this month.

4. Eco-marathon: Swarthmore College students and an energy-saving car they built are headed to Houston today to compete in the Shell Eco-marathon Americas, which starts Friday. The contest challenges teams to build vehicles that use as little energy as possible.

5. Sandy recovery perceptions: A new poll being released today found that two-thirds of New Jersey residents don't think the state is back to normal after Superstorm Sandy.
