Happy Friday. Finish off the week with a quick look at five stories to know about today:
1. Moment of silence: Security checkpoints at airports across the country today will hold a moment of silence today in honor Gerardo Hernandez, the agent gunned down last week at Los Angeles International Airport. The tribute will take place at 9:20 a.m. PST (12:20 p.m. EST) to mark the moment he was shot.
2. House explosion: Authorities will be investigating what caused a house to explode in Cape May County, badly burning a husband and wife.
3. Reward in 1993 killing: Officials in Montgomery County are set to announce a $10,000 reward today for information leading to an arrest in the 1993 slaying of 18-year-old Julie Barnyock, who was found in a weeded area of SEPTA's Lansdale train yard about three weeks after she disappeared.
