11:10 pm
media, they will look at his internet service providers, email providers, things of that nature, to try to understand what is motivation might have been in embarking upon this incredibly dreadful act that he engaged in this evening. there is a lot of work for investigators to do here. basically building a timeline of events and statements and writings and postings on social media. and i think they can associate within that might shed light on is intense and, i suspect that investigation will go on for quite some time. >> that was andrew mccabe, former deputy director of the fbi. and cnn senior law enforcement

11:32 pm
despite that window for finding survivors closing very quickly as you heard there from the u.n. warning. in fact we heard from rescuers, now they say they are still hearing voices underneath the rubble or than it is on sincere the quake. we have seen these miraculous rescues over the last few days. in the early hours of this morning, a ten year old girl was reportedly pulled from the rubble, another survivor. so there's still some hope there are many across southeast turkey holding out hope that their missing loved ones maybe still alive underneath the rubble. this is shifting from a rescue effort to a recovery effort very quickly. there's a huge emphasis and major focus on offering support to those survivors who have lost absolutely everything. we read in a distribution center and is double, one of two here in the city which has been sending aid to the affected regions. more than 20,000 volunteers there working around the clock

police say the suspect in a mass shooting on the campus of michigan state university is dead. at least three people were killed and five others are hospitalized in critical condition. this was the scene on monday while the suspected shooter was still on the loose. police say there is no longer a threat to the campus and the shelter in place order has been lifted. authorities say the suspected shooter apparently took his own life. they released this photo from earlier. police told reporters he was a 43 year old man who had no affiliation with the university. still no word of a possible motive. ukraine's defense minister is laying out his agenda ahead of a meeting with nato defense ministers set to begin in brussels in the coming hours. he will be pushing key issues including protecting ukrainian skies, building the tech
11:44 pm
coalition and, stability and military support. that meeting take taking place as intense fighting rages in eastern ukraine occur including in around bakhmut. ukraine is disputing russia's claim that its forces have captured a nearby village and says back what remains the focus of russia's main attacks. in the luhansk region one, forces russia's continuous high rate of attacks and what he says probably had two massive attacks. nato secretary general says allies will step up and sustained support for ukraine as he warns that russia is already launching its new offensive. cnn's scott mclain is following developments for us. he joins us now live from london. good morning to scott. so nato say the start of a new russian offensive is already underway now will be discussed in the organizations upcoming meeting with the ukraine

11:46 pm
town and trying to surround it. they have claimed that they captured a village near bakhmut a couple of miles north called crazy horror. a spokesman for the ukraine military said plainly that is not true. the fighting there continues and ukraine continues to be in control of that down. but what the ukrainians are acknowledging though is that the russians are able to fire on those main supply routes. they say they are trying to launch their own attacks to push the russians back and prevent those attacks from taking place. all of this will surely color those meetings taking place today in brussels between western defense ministers. 50 defense ministers from around the world interested in supporting ukraine. the nato secretary general says the look, these western allies ought to be sending weapons quickly because the so-called spring offensive has already
11:47 pm
begun and, the russians argue new attempt to where they're use your size advantage to wear down the cranium's. ukrainians say look, they will need to sort of very quickly and how to get more production of ammunition because he says e ukrainians are burning through it faster than the west can actually produce and. this case in point, some large caliber artillery the wait for those is almost two and a half years if they were to be order today. rosemary? >> thanks to scott mclain for that live report from london. still to come. officials have now publicly released body camera videos from the night alex murdoch's wife and son were killed. we'll have a detailed report when we return. customizes your home insurance, here's a little number you'll never forget. did you know thahat liberty mutual custo— ♪ liberty mutual. ♪ ♪ only pay for what you need. ♪ ♪ only pay for what you need. ♪ ♪ custom home insurance created for you all. ♪ ♪ now the song is done ♪ ♪ back to living in your wall. ♪ they're just gonna live in there?
