>> reporter: good morning. a truly horrifying experience for passengers and workers here. but police say it could have been so much worse. police say he had enough ammunition to kill everyone in the terminal. the slain officer revealed. he is 39-year-old harado hernandez. on the job since 2010. transferred recently to los angeles from montana. the first-ever tsa officer killed in the line of duty. >> i'm speechless. i'm shocked. >> reporter: and the shooter, the fbi releasing his picture over night. paul ciancia, an l.a. resident, who authorities say opened fire with a high-power rifle, inside terminal three friday morning. >> we have an active shooting in terminal three. >> reporter: witnesses describe a chaotic scene, saying he started shooting right outside the security checkpoint, as police raced in, he made it all the way to the back of the terminal, near the departure
gate. passengers ducked for cover. some even hid in a bathroom stall. officers had their guns drawn, yelling at passengers to drop to the floor. >> everybody on the floor. on the floor, now. >> reporter: and after people ran as fast as they could -- >> go, go. >> reporter: the panic and lockdown that followed blocked accidents from getting close, causing rescuers to run hundreds of yards to get the wounded to safety. when the shooter ran out of bullets in one, he allegedly grabbed another. >> i heard gunshots. a few weekends later, i saw him come up the elevator, and walk about ten feet away from me with his guns pointed. >> reporter: hernandez, a behavioral detection officer, trained to recognize trained behavior in airports, shot dead. two more tsa officers injured, recovering from their wounds. police uls matly shot ciancia.
he was rushed away in an ambulance to the hospital. and the head of the tsa, saying in a statement, no words can explain the horror that we experienced. now, terminal three and its parking lot remain closed. some passengers haven't been able to get back inside to gather belongings. and we see a huge police presence out here this morning. president obama has offered condolences to los angeles leaders and the tsa. a lot of grief this morning. and, dan, a lot of questions, too. >> cecilia, thank you. the most burning question is, of course, why. we've been gathering information about the suspect. he mentioned homicide in text messages to his family. and he was carrying notes that indicated he has anti-government views. for more on this, let's go to abc's chief justice correspondent, pierre thomas, in washington. pierre, good morning.
>> reporter: law enforcement offices say ciancia had a note with him, that he expected to die in the airport confrontation. in the notes, the suspect details specific anger and frustration with the tsa. last night, the fbi searched his home in los angeles. and focus on his hometown of pinsville, new jersey. we spoke to the pinsville police, who offered details on the young man's state of mind. family members made calls yesterday, expressing concern about the younger man. >> their younger child got a text message from paul. and there were comments about his well-being. and he possibly wanted to take his own life. at that point, paul, his father, called me. and i went over there. and i made some phone calls to lapd, to get a well-being check on him. >> reporter: law enforcement sources say the note on the scene ended with the words nwo, which is supposed to stand for new world order. people with that thinking think
the government is going to turn to tyranny. but they don't have evidence that he had ties to domestic terrorists. travelers at l.a.x., are telling terrifying stories of what they saw. moments ago, i spoke with jose mares and his wife, miriam rodriguez. here's what they had to say. thank you for joining us. where were you when the shooting began. and what did you see first? >> we were standing in line to get our ticket to board the plane. we were close to the end of the line. me and my wife were just talking. and then, from there, that's when everything happened. it just happened so quick. >> and had you noticed the gunman before he started shooting. >> just once he did. it was a quick view to him. and once the bang went out, that's it. it was kind of odd that a guy in blue just walking around with a big assault rifle. >> did you think initially that he was part of security or the
tsa? >> oh, yeah. i thought -- well, he blended in good with it. i thought he was part of them. but it came to the point where he just had a rifle. okay, he's the only one with the rifle. so, that -- i ignored that. next you know, we just kept talking in line. and next you know, the first bang went out. and then, just stood there. and next you know, the multiple shots went down. and that's when we went down with it. >> was there any moment of confusion when you first heard that gunshot? or did you know what was happening? >> at first, we were all confused. the first one, it was a loud bang. we were all confused. we thought if anyone dropped something to the floor, you don't know what was it? and then, after the several shots went down, that's when we all hit the floor. and we managed -- i managed to get on top of her. while i managed to get on top of her, that's when i reached for a lot of luggage and made a wall out of them. >> miriam, what was going through your mind when all this was happening? >> i was really scared. and i was shaking. i was just scared that maybe he
was going to come towards me, my husband, or where we were laying at because he was able to peek out to where he was coming to. and he was like, i see him coming. i see him coming. we need to leave. so, he's like, we need to get out. so, he just told me, okay. he just grabbed my hand. and we headed out the door. >> jose and miriam, we are so thankful that you are safe this morning. thanks so much for joining us. i can imagine how frightful that must have been. i've been to that airport many times. we appreciate you joining us and telling us about what transpired yesterday. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> jose and miriam were scheduled to fly out to norman, oklahoma. but miriam says she's fearful to go back on a plane. if you're flying today, you're likely to see more security at the airport. the incident raising questions about how safe fliers are, not only in the air but also on the ground. and david kerley is at reagan national airport, just outside of washington. >> reporter: i'm in an airport terminal.
but this is a public place, like a mall or a movie theater. i didn't have to show identification to get here. what can we do to prevent another shooting like the one at los angeles? this morning, airports across the nation, with increased police presence. l.a. police officers swarmed ne terminal there. some of them were there. >> i was talking to the officers involved in this incident a few minutes ago. they said that training was critical to how they responded to this. >> reporter: after the shooting, and the first-ever death of a tsa officer in the line of duty, so many questions. should we arm tsa officers? should there be more police? should we move the security checkpoints? >> there's one thing that some people will recommend after this, is either push the screening poi screening checkpoints, further out. that doesn't solve the problem.
it relocates the problem. >> reporter: a suggestion a few years ago to arm the tens of thousands of tsa officers was discussed. protection is the job of local police, which have to meet federal stan dashdards for sfon times. and despite the cornage and the fear at l.a.x., experts argue the system worked there. the shooter got through one level of security. but never reached a plane. >> it's hard to stop somebody that just pulls out a gun and starts shooting. that's where you need armed intervention to come back and stop that person. >> reporter: security experts, really, do expect that the discussion will be about police response times. do we need to shorten those or have more officers at some of the checkpoints at airports around the country? bianna? >> as you said in your piece, it could have been a lot worse at l.a.x. yesterday, as well. david, our thanks to you. this concludes our coverage to the shooting at l.a.x.
we turn to the other top story of the morning. the biggest terrorist get since osama bin laden. the man behind the pakistani taliban, responsible for thousands of deaths, has been killed by an american drone-fired missile. reena ninan has the details from washington. this is a huge blow to the taliban. >> reporter: good morning to you. one source telling me, a senior official is calling massoud's death a gift from pakistan. military leaders are calling it one of the biggest victories against an al qaeda ally since the death of osama bin laden. massoud was a pakistani taliban leader. for years, he eluded capture. now, officials tell abc news, the militant leader has been taken out, killed in a u.s. drone strike. >> he had the ability to order attacks on u.s. soil. >> reporter: attacks like the foiled bombing in new york's times square in 2010. seen here in a video, speaking
out against the use of u.s. drones, alongside the man accused of trying to carry out the times square attack. >> let's go. >> reporter: dramatized in the movie, "zero dark thirty" massoud is overseeing one of the worst attacks on the cia. the 2009 in khost, afghanistan, leaving seven cia officials dead. >> since the death of osama bin laden, this is one of the biggest hits they've had. >> reporter: and this morning, the taliban, already looking into who will replace him. >> the question is, how long will it take the organization to get back on its feet? >> reporter: massoud was buried today in waziristan. a successor is close to being chosen. the pakistani government and the pakistani taliban were expected to begin peace talks. dan and bianna? >> that's a warning sign they're choosing his successor. reena, thank you. a lot of other news overnight. for that, let's turn to ron claiborne. >> in the news, a michigan man
is coming forth, saying he should receive the reward for the killing of osama bin laden. the associated press is reporting that a gym merchant from grand rapids, michigan, say he tipped investigators off about bin laden's location in pakistan. bin laden was killed in a navy s.e.a.l. raid. the merchant has hired a lawyer to help him collect the reward. and a suspect under arrest in the kidnapping of a colorado girl who was snatched right from her bedroom. the man, john snorsky, the suspect, was arrested on tuesday. police say he kidnapped the 8-year-old from her room monday, by removing the screen from her bedroom window. the girl struggled and was able to get away. and crews are working to pull a school bus out of a kansas creek. the bus with ten students and the driver onboard flipped into the creek on thursday. students and the driver were able to get out safely.
and new jersey governor chris christie is reacting to a tell-all book about mitt romney's presidential campaign. in "double down," the authors claimed that romney passed on christie as a potential running mate, for among other reason, his medical history. governor christie responded during a re-election campaign stop in new jersey on friday. >> that campaign four years ago, i wish them godspeed to spell any books they can. >> the book, "double down," comes out next tuesday, which happens to be election day in new jersey. finally, if you got paid on friday, i'll bet your paycheck was nothing like kobe bryants. most nba players get paid every two weeks. but some, like kobe, get 80% of their salary up front. he got paid yesterday, with a $30 million annual contract. that works out to $24 million before taxes. >> before taxes.
>> before taxes. >> i'm going to call my agent and figure out how to get that. >> on friday, the eagle was soaring for kobe. and he's injured, not even playing right now. sorry he got injured. but that's a nice paycheck to take home. >> must be nice, huh? >> i'm imagining. >> thanks, ron. time for a check of the weather and over to ginger zee. >> hey, guys. unsettled is an understatement as for what's been happening along the east coast the last two days. stowe, vermont, ahead of the front. 73-mile-per-hour wind gusts. flint, michigan, behind it, had gusts up to 43 miles per hour. let's see what happens with all of the winds. just west of boston, weldly, massachusetts. trees down, power lines and power outages in that area. so much nicer today in boston for the red sox parade today. in flint, we talk about wind gusts about 45 miles per hour. and they had big issues, too. the video almost looks the same. but it's before and after the front goes through. either way. let's look at what happens
today. you get the kicked-up winds. and lake erie, in this picture, is it going to be calmer? it will. but it will be colder, too. a second cold front. along the coast will be nice. philadelphia, 66. new york, 65. but here behind, fleuries mixing in for rains for parts like pittsburgh, erie, and buffalo and syracuse. a winter feel by sunday into monday. and then, the new storm out west is something we're watching. not that big of a rainmaker. but we think the big issue is going to be wind. along the coastline, you see as the low comes in. 60-plus-mile-per-hour winds there. seattle, between 60 and 40-mile-per-hour winds. that's something we'll be looking for to start the workweek. it's cold in the midwest. really nice in the southwest. los angeles, a little fog to start the day.
>> i've been trying to go back to basics with you guys on the "name that cloud" deal. but we're going to go tough today. so, it's time to play -- >> "name that cloud." >> name that crown. cloud. i'm sorry. >> cool, right? >> that's the old sawtooth cloud. we learned about that in science class. >> looks like a razor. >> it's a clause called by kelvin's instability. >> i was going to say that. >> the instability of the cloud. and the lower layers a little slower.
and the wind shear between causes that cloud. >> look how animated she gets. >> really? >> yes. >> thank you for never giving up on us. >> i think she has. >> i think she has diagnosed us with instability, actually. a long time ago. >> don't forget that one. >> yes, actually. thank you, ginger. appreciate it. moving on to a pair of mysteries on the water. elaborate, strange-looking barges have been seen floating off both coasts. first, in san francisco. now, in maine. imaginations are running wild. there's speculation that a high-tech giant is behind all of this. and abc's rob nelson has spent the overnight hours doing some digging into all this. rob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, guys. no matter how much digging is being done, political leaders, even the coast guard, isn't saying much at all. all of the tight lips fueling speculation over what google has in store.
they are floating mysteries on both coasts of the country. giant contraptions whose purpose is as murky as the water itself. check out this fortress-like barge in the waters off of portland, maine. and this heap of metal near san francisco. it's already a year in the works, starting to look like a factory, covered in construction mesh and antennas. now, locals are trying to figure out what in the world they are. >> the containers, they're filling them up full of stuff. carrying them away. and shipping them off. >> reporter: there are reports this morning that this is all the work of tech giant, google. google isn't commenting just yet. but there are some clues, including the company's patent application for a so-called floating platform-mounded computer data center. >> i think it's an underwater system that google's been working on. going to show ocean bottoms and things like that. why would they build something on a borj? >> reporter: abc news has also learned, the company has met with the san francisco bay
conservation and development commission. the agency that hands out permits to use the bay. >> we think it might be is a way for the bay area to learn about technology. >> reporter: no one has gotten a glimpse inside the structures. and it's anybody's guess what one of the world's best-known companies has up its sleeve. meanwhile, theories are floating, as well. >> we heard through the media and so on, that it's google. that it's some type of a hub that they have. and it's a mobile data center. >> reporter: in a statement, the u.s. coast guard confirmed it is working with the owners of the barges to make sure the right permitting is in place. that's as far as they would go. even the mayor of san francisco says he is in the dark, as well. as we like to say in tv, stay tuned, guys. >> given google's skyrocketing earnings as of late, they can do anything. why not build a few barges. >> spend that money. always comes back to the stock market with bianna golodryga. >> ginger has clouds and the
stock market. we're going to turn to the tale of the tail. and a fascinating, new study on man's best friend. turns out a tail wag means a lot more than just a happy puppy. sara haines has all of the details. i've been curious about this for years. >> reporter: i don't know if we have clarifying answers here. as a dog owner, i know when my pups are happy. and the tail wag is a good indicator. did you know the way dogs wag their tail can be a tell-tale sign of how your friend is feeling? it's true. italian researchers discovered that a dog can determine how another dog feels from the wagging of its tails. dogs in the research group, had increased heart rates when watching other dogs wag their tails to the left. and remained calm when other dogs wagged to the right. top new york city dog trainer,
aman amanda, talked about dog senses. >> their sense of smell watches things we don't catch. >> reporter: it adds to research from 2007, if a dog wags to the left, it's likely feeling anxious. and right, when relaxed. we decided to head to the park to sniff out other doggy body language reading tips. he doesn't have a tail. i've seen the stub move. without a tail, how can you -- >> you have no idea. i have to assume he's happy. >> the dogs are communicating a lot, all the time, with all of their body language. i'm going to tell their clients to look at the overall picture of their dog. >> reporter: for my two canine babies, peter and trixie, one thing's for sure. peter doesn't care for the wag to the face. nobody likes a tail to the face. >> no. >> if it's not -- the overall thing i learned from the behaviorist, is it's really about the whole picture. you don't want to hone in on one thing. whether it's baring teeth or --
it's the whole image. >> i like to hone in on the baring teeth. >> yeah. go the other way. >> learned that today. >> the one clarifying thing everybody can take away. is when the teeth come out, run. thank you, sara. coming up on the broadcast, the candid interview from actress, portia de rossi, making waves this morning. the wife of ellen degeneres, opening up about her struggles with her sexuality. and fearless flier. we talk to the feel skydiver, with nerves of steel. she makes a spectacular four-wheeled landing. and here's a question. what was a billion-dollar bra look like? we're not kidding. this bra that we're not showing you goes for $1.1 million. the answer in "pop news."
