and tonight here, the pets. harry weinstein with the company bearing his name now says about its future and the new allegations tonight. did police go too far? the protest and the chaos outside an american high school. good evening and great to have you with us on a busy friday night. we begin with the new timeline from las vegas. authorities coming before the cameras 12 days after the massacre with another timeline. for the first time we are seeing the hotel security guard in the middle. we learn when he was shot. when did the gunman start firing on the crowd and for the first time we are hearing the gunman also trained his weapons on the first responders. abc's matt gutman leading us off from las vegas. reporter: tonight, the las vegas sheriff unveiling that new timeline. >> excuse me for my emotion. >> reporter: with his voice
5:32 pm
cracking, he now says he agrees with the timeline put out last night. >> i am very well aware of the mgm statement provided yesterday. i agree with their statement. >> reporter: 12 days after the massacre there have been questions about whether the response could have been quicker. tonight the las vegas sheriff says it was at 9:59 this security officer jesus campos just 25 years old in this image responds to a door alarm and finds a barricaded door on the 32nd floor adjacent to the killer's suite. the sheriff said within minutes that security officer was shot by the gunman at approximately 10:05. >> mr. campos received his wounds in proximity to 22:05. he attempted to relay that information via his radio. >> reporter: he says it was the same time the gunman fired on the crowd. >> 22:05 the number provided
5:33 pm
earlier referenced the majority of fire upon our community. >> reporter: paddock raining hundreds of bullets on the crowd of 22,000 for ten minutes and two minutes after the gunfire ended the sheriff's teams arrived on the 32nd floor at 10:17. 12 minutes after paddock began firing they determined the shooting had stopped. >> we did not believe we had an active shooter. >> reporter: also tonight, the sheriff's stunning revelation that paddock attempted a more catastrophic attack aiming for those fuel tanks on the edge of the airport, so visible from the air. you could see how far some bullets traveled going over the fairgrounds and hitting the fuel tanks on the other side. the sheriff revealing that his own officers arriving at the scene you see rushing for cover and protecting civilians may have been specifically targeted.
5:34 pm
one of them brady cook. >> brady sustained a substantial wound to his shoulder. through his bicep into his chest and out his back. and the reason why i bring this one up -- he asked me if he could go back to work tonight. >> matt gutman live from las vegas. the sheriff saying the fbi will take a larger role and federal authorities said this gunman acted alone. no evidence of affiliations yet. >> reporter: they can say he acted alone. what they don't know is why he did this. the fbi taking the lead in this case because of its scale. there are hundreds of police officers and hundreds of eyewitnesss to interview around of course countless hours of surveillance video to sift through. now it's worth noting 45 people remain hospitalized from that attack tonight. david. >> matt gutman leading us off. we turn to the health care
5:35 pm
bombshell. president trump taking steps on his own to dismantle obamacare after republicans in congress could not get a repeal. first signing an executive order yesterday and then the president making a midnight move overnight cutting off billions in insurance subsidies that help many working class americans who make too much to be covered by medicaid but too little to cover their own health care. here's abc's mary bruce. reporter: president trump is vowing to rip apart obamacare piece by piece. >> one by one, it is going to come down. and we're going to have great health care in our country. we are going to have great health care. >> reporter: late last night, he dropped a bombshell. cutting off $7 billion in subsidies that help lower-income americans afford coverage. the white house calling those payments "unlawful" -- hanging in the balance tonight, the roughly seven million americans who make too much to qualify for medicaid, but still need help paying for coverage -- americans like marcy shelton, a
5:36 pm
retiree in nevada who leans on these subsidies to afford her coverage. >> if it gets too high i won't afford it at all. and that's terrifying. >> mason mccoy says he could barely afford the subsidized plan he has now. >> it's nothing more than another assault on poor people >> reporter: the congressional budget office says premiums for some could climb up to 20%. and predicts many americans will likely lose coverage. after the president and republicans in congress could not find a way to repeal obamacare, now the president is out to do it on his own. in the last 24 hours signing an executive order paving the way for insurers to offer plans that cost less but cover less, too. >> people will have great, great health care. >> reporter: tonight democrats say this isn't great care. it's sabotage. >> make no mistake, last night the president single handedly decided to raise america's health premiums for no reason
5:37 pm
except spite and cruelty. >> reporter: but the president says obamacare is a broken mess. >> what would be nice, if the democratic leaders could come over to the white house and negotiate some deal good for everybody. that's what i would like. >> reporter: many republicans tonight already fear the political consequences. >> we will own this problem. the president's action today was unhelpful. >> mary we also heard today from ohio's governor republican john kasich who ran against donald trump during the primary but no less a harsh warning from him tonight. >> reporter: he says the move by the president will lead to confusion and higher health costs. on the hill there is a bipartisan effort to replace the subsidies. the question, can they come to an agreement and how soon? david. >> mary bruce at her post on the hill. thanks. another major move from the president. decertifying the iran nuclear agreement telling congress to impose new sanctions or he'll leave the deal completely. swift reaction tonight.
5:38 pm
from many u.s. allies. >> here's abc's chief white house correspondent jonathan karl. >> reporter: defying some of america's closest allies and even some of his owned a advisers the president today declared iran is not keeping its side of the nuclear agreement negotiated under president obama. >> the iran deal was one of the worst and most one sided transactions the united states has ever entered into. >> reporter: the president called on congress to impose new sanctions on iran if it does not curb its missile program and its support for terrorism. things not covered under the nuclear agreement. >> the iranian regime continues to fuel conflict, terror and turmoil throughout the middle east and beyond. importantly, iran is not living up to the spirit of the deal. >> reporter: president trump stopped short of doing what he said he would do during the campaign, get out of the deal, a step that would give iran a green light to restart its
5:39 pm
nuclear weapons program. mr. president, you said you were going to rip the iran deal off. you called it the worst ever. >> i may do that. i may do that. the deal is terrible. so what we have done is through the certification process we'll have congress take a look at it and i may very well do that. >> reporter: before the president spoke secretary of state rex tillerson had been working the phones to reassure european allies who are firmly committed to the iran deal. >> let's get to jon karl at the white house tonight. secretary tillerson given the task of calling our allies. what is he hearing? >> they're not happy with the president's actions but after those conversations, what's notable is that france, germany and the u.k. did not criticize the president and said they would work with the united states on curbing iran's support for terrorism and its missile program. as for the iran president, he said the united states is completely alone on this but the iranians said they will stay in
5:40 pm
the agreement at least for now. >> jon karl, thank you. we turn next to california's deadly and devastating wildfires. worsening winds this weekend. dangerous conditions expected through sunday. winds up to 50 miles an hour. look at this tonight. smoke 75 miles away in san francisco. people wearing masks, schools closed. abc's linzie janis amid new stories. one couple surviving in their neighbors' pool, the fire all around them. >> reporter: tonight firefighters keeping up the battle to save homes amid the deadliest week in california fire history. >> the enormity of this disaster we're only beginning to understand. >> reporter: harrowing stories of the victims emerging. the shepherd family's car catching fire. as they fled the flames. 14-year-old ky didn't make it. the rest of the family badly burned. the fires now larger than new york city.
5:41 pm
this is how so much of the battle against these fires is being fought, by hand. firefighters spraying and raking the ground, putting out hot spots. more than 5,700 structured destroyed. in sonoma a team of firefighters saving several homes in a few hours. >> we were literally running from house to house. it's super smokey, super hot. you can't see very well. >> reporter: hundreds of people still missing we're learning incredible stories of survival. >> you got to get out of that house. >> reporter: jan and john say their daughter called to alert them to the fire. >> i looked out my window and there was a wall of flame out my window. so that's how fast it happened for us. we had no warning. >> reporter: their only option, their neighbor's pool. holding each other in the water. and countless family pets rescued, too. the sonoma county humane society treating cats with burned paws.
5:42 pm
>> doing hard work to help save the animals. the story of the pool is something. linzie janis back with us. you were telling us they're estimating the damage to housing alone at more than $1 billion already? >> reporter: that's right david. at least 5% of the housing here in santa rosa totally wiped out. the damage estimates, more than $1.2 billion. and you can see just how quickly people fled. these three wheelchairs left charred and mangled right outside this house. david. >> excellent reporting for us all week. let's get to rob because there are red flag warnings in northern california and you were saying concern in southern california this weekend too? >> yeah. shaping up to be a statewide event. you saw lynn see's shot. red flag warning where the winds reach critical fire criteria after midnight by tomorrow morning, los angeles and ventura counties. winds will be ripping there. the higher elevations could gust to 50 miles an hour.

5:44 pm
up that dark stairwell down the hallway where we met this woman from new york city there taking care of her parents. >> we heard inspectors had been visiting these buildings all over puerto rico. have you seen any? >> not at all. they have not come to these apartments. >> no one has come? >> no one. >> how much food and water have they brought? >> none. >> nothing? >> none at all. >> reporter: with no power, no clean drinking water inside their apartment and their windows still blown out by hurricane maria and in the bedroom her parents on the bed in need of medication. now 23 days after the hurricane they tell us still no clean drinking water and still generators powering the hallways just a couple hours a day. >> do you feel like you have been abandoned? >> reporter: across puerto rico home to nearly 3.5 million americans 37% have no access to clean drinking water and the death toll has risen to 45 but
