7:03 am
this was our first one in three years. and we got aespa this morning, a great k-pop group breaking records, but we have a couple thousand in the park already. we're excited. >> it's completely sold out. you can see how excited they are and it's a beautiful day. that is something that we don't always get on fridays, so it's good news all around. >> that is good news. we have to start with some sad news, some breaking news overnight. japanese prime minister, the longest serving japanese prime minister, shinzo abe was gunned down while giving a speech ahead of japan's sunday elections. the country is in shock. the shooter is in custody. our foreign correspondent lama hasan has the latest. good morning, lama. >> reporter: yeah, good morning to you, george. this morning, japanese health officials making the announcement, the former prime minister shinzo abe has died sustaining two gunshot wounds, one to the right side of his neck, the other penetrating his heart, and doctors were fighting hard for five hours to save his life but sadly they just couldn't stop the bleeding. overnight, a brazen assassination in broad daylight. former japanese prime minister shinzo abe gunned down during a
7:04 am
stump speech near kyoto. the shooting happening around 11:30 a.m. local time was caught on camera. this video shows abe giving a speech near a train station in the city of nara. then a plume of smoke can be seen behind him. witnesses say they heard two shots. the 67-year-old collapsing. first responders immediately rushed in. >> translator: after the second shot, we could see the gunpowder and a lot of white smoke. after the second shot, mr. abe collapsed, and people were applying cpr. >> reporter: abe was rushed to the hospital with no vital signs. >> translator: and there have been gun wounds in two locations in the neck. >> reporter: the weapon recovered at the scene appears to have been a homemade one and the suspected shooter, 41-year-old tetsuya yamagami, seen here moments after the -- seen here moments before the
7:05 am
assassination. he did not leave. he was immediately taken into custody. >> he was not running away. he wasn't attempting to run away. he was just standing there. >> reporter: abe was a popular leader and became the country's longest serving prime minister. at the time of the attack, he was giving a speech in support of a party member ahead of parliamentary elections this weekend. despite stepping down, abe remained a major power broker both domestically and internationally, helping shape american foreign policy in the region for years. secretary of state antony blinken reacting overnight. >> our thoughts, our prayers are with him, with his family, with the people of japan. this is a very, very sad moment. >> reporter: for many, abe's assassination was unthinkable. gun violence is extremely rare in japan and the country has some of the strictest gun laws in the world. with 127 million people, japan rarely sees more than ten gun deaths a year. >> shootings are almost unheard of.
7:06 am
guns are highly restricted here. this type of crime is very rare. now, there's been bombings, of course. there's been poisonings, there's been knife attacks, things of that nature, but as far as guns go they're almost nonexistent here. >> reporter: here's what we know so far about the suspected shooter. he's been identified as 41-year-old tetsuya yamagami, from the city of nara, he's a former soldier. according to japan's local broadcasters he told investigators he was unhappy with the former prime minister and that he intended to kill him. george? >> okay, lama, thanks very much. it's hard to overstate how much shock japan is in from this shooting. abe was one of the most consequential leaders in postwar japan and have no history of assassination since world war ii and as lama's piece pointed out, ten or fewer gun violence deaths a year in that country. that is such a shock for this country.

illegal in russia. in court griner saying it was a mistake. >> i was in a rush packing and the cartridges accidentally ended up in my bag. >> reporter: griner's lawyers outside of court saying accountability was important to her. >> considering her personality and that she's a role model to many young people, she is responsible for her actions. >> reporter: experts say a guilty plea may help speed up what many see as the inevitable outcome, negotiations. >> it will get her closer to the verdict that we know the russians will give which is guilty. that will allow for the next phase to occur and potentially a break for her perhaps in the diplomacy. >> reporter: in court thursday, a letter from president biden hand delivered to griner responding to her plea for help where she wrote, i'm terrified i might be here forever. trevor reed knows all too well the reality of being a russian prisoner. detained for nearly three years. >> there's pretty horrible conditions there. there's rats, food there could

be, you know, really bad and the summer, it's very hot there. there's no air-conditioning, obviously or even fans inside of those cells. they do not like americans and they don't try to hide that. >> reporter: in her letter griner pleading with the president, please don't forget about me and the other american detainees, which include former marine paul whelan who has been detained for over 3 1/2 years. >> i hope that president biden and his administration will do everything possible to get both, you know, brittney and paul out of russia and that they will do that immediately. >> reporter: the white house press secretary said brittney's guilty plea will have no impact on negotiations. they also said that they're doing everything they can to bring not only brittney griner but also paul whelan home. t.j.? >> yeah, there are dozens of americans around the world actually being detained unlawfully, some would say, and
7:10 am
wrongfully. thank you for that, maggie. we want to turn now to the latest jobs report. a lot of people keeping an eye on it to see what it will mean for the economy. our chief economics correspondent rebecca jarvisn the floor of the new york stock exchange for us with insight. good morning to you, rebecca. >> reporter: t.j., two key questions for the economy now, has inflation peaked and are we facing a recession? today's jobs report says the market remains strong, there are plentiful jobs, 272,000 created in the month of june, unemployment steady. some of the concerns have been that the inflation, the rise in prices we have seen along with the federal reserve hiking interest rates could start eating into those jobs, it doesn't appear to be the case at this point. the key thing for consumers out there is what's going on with your wage, up 5.1%.
7:11 am
compared to prices 6.0%. >> we'll be waiting for that, rebecca. now to the latest in the july 4th parade shootings. funerals for two of the victims and a memorial service for a third will be held today. this all coming as we learn more about the survivors and what they're facing. alex perez has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, new details on those harrowing moments at that fourth of july massacre in highland park, illinois. the parade an annual tradition for the roberts family ending in tragedy. >> keeley and cooper were both shot that day and luke also suffered injuries from shrapnel. >> reporter: family friend anthony loizzi said luke has been treated and released from the hospital. his twin brother cooper in critical condition on a ventilator. >> cooper was shot in the chest and he suffered significant injuries including a severed spinal cord. >> reporter: doctors now fearing he may be permanently paralyzed.

meanwhile, investigators now digging into the alleged shooter's background and any possible missed red flags. lake county police commissioner chris covelli telling abc news that authorities had actually been called to the accused gunman's home, mostly for domestic reasons, a number of times. state police officials are investigating whether this suspect should have been approved for a gun permit in the first place. george? >> okay, alex. we're going to go to washington now, where president biden will sign an executive order today aimed at protecting access to reproductive health care services. it comes exactly two weeks after the supreme court's decision to overturn roe versus wade. rachel scott has the latest. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning. for weeks the white house has been under pressure. democrats have been calling for a more urgent response to protect access to abortion. so in just a few hours the president will be signing this executive order. it would take steps to protect access to medication abortion and push back on efforts to keep women from traveling across state lines. it would also move to protect patients' sensitive medical
7:13 am
information and the administration will provide leave for federal workers traveling for medical care. much of this has already been outlined by administration officials over the last few weeks. it does not go as far as democrats or advocates are calling for, but the president has been very clear on this. without congressional action, his options are very limited and this morning that list is growing. at least 13 states have stopped nearly all abortion services. t.j.? >> all right, rachel, thank you as always. want to turn to that wimbledon shocker. really a heartbreaker for tennis great rafael nadal. he had to withdraw from his highly anticipated semifinal match due to an abdominal injury. lara has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, a major shake-up on the court. >> i had to pull out from the tournament. >> reporter: 22-time grand slam champion rafael nadal withdrawing from wimbledon ahead of his scheduled semifinal with nick kyrgios citing a torn muscle in his abdomen. >> i can't win two matches under the circumstances.

7:15 am
controversy and legal troubles. earlier this week the 27-year-old receiving a summons to australian court next month for allegedly assaulting a former girlfriend late last year. a big disappointment there for nadal but over on the women's side a terrific show of sportsmanship yesterday as tunisian ons jabeur won and brought her good friend, tatjana maria onto the court for a round of applause and told the audience that she was an inspiration to all. maria, 34-year-old mother of two has a 1-year-old, guys. she also said maria owes her barbecue for making ons run so much to get that win. ons now facing elena rybakina in a battle of two first-timers in the women's final. we will be there and i will see you later today for "pop news." >> looking forward to that. thank you, lara. we switch gears now and remember james caan who delivered iconic performances in films like "the godfather,"

7:17 am
that's why. >> reporter: and with tuesday weld in michael mann's "thief." >> which is a real loss to the planet earth. >> reporter: caan would get what's coming in stephen king's bleakly funny "misery." >> whatever you're thinking of doing, please don't do it. >> reporter: helping kathy bates win an oscar and he would be the perfect complement to will ferrell's cheerful "elf" in the comedy that's become a holiday favorite. >> who sent this christmas gram? >> what's a christmas gram? i want one. >> reporter: so many paying tribute after news of his passing at the age of 82 from as yet undisclosed causes. his "godfather" co-star al pacino calling him a fictional brother and my lifelong friend. barbra streisand, with whom he starred in "funny lady," tweeting, i'm so sorry to hear about jimmy. he was so talented. and billy dee williams, teammates and friends till the end, r.i.p., jimmy. on social media, caan's family

how to track the retail giants who have the lowest prices. that's coming up. robes? now to new details though on the dramatic arrest of that yoga instructor accused of murdering her romantic rival. u.s. marshals say kaitlin armstrong used multiple aliases and then traveled to costa rica on someone else's passport all in an effort to avoid capture. our chief national correspondent matt gutman is in austin with more on all this. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, amy, you've got it right. multiple aliases, two passports, cosmetic surgery under the name of one of those aliases, and authorities now revealing that kaitlin armstrong might have been able to stay in costa rica for a long time had it not been for a single tip that helped them piece together her escape from austin to new york to that remote costa rica beach town. this morning, those startling revelations from authorities about murder suspect kaitlin armstrong's escape from the u.s. almost as if ripped from a spy thriller. >> it was discovered armstrong used different names, aliases
7:33 am
under the alias of beth martin, liz and ari martin. armstrong used these names at yoga studios and other lodging since her arrival in costa rica on may 18th. >> reporter: authorities say the 34-year-old yoga instructor had two passports, multiple identities and changed her appearance. a receipt under a different name in her possession for plastic surgery. >> i will say she had a bandage on her nose with a little bit of discoloration under her eyes. her statement was that it came from a surfboard incident and i think we'll leave it at that. >> reporter: for more than six weeks she had eluded authorities who say on may 11th she flew into a jealous rage and gunned down pro cyclist moriah wilson who she thought was involved with her boyfriend. surveillance video showing her jeep grand cherokee seen driving near the house where wilson was staying at the time of the murder. on may 13th austin police questioned her at the station but said they could not detain her because of a technicality. within 24 hours armstrong sold
7:34 am
that jeep grand cherokee to carmax for $12,200. the next day, may 14th, she boarded a series of flights from austin to houston to new york, then she disappeared. >> armstrong boarded the flight and fled to international territory by presenting a passport that did not belong to her, but belonged to someone that was closely associated with her. >> reporter: with no trace of armstrong, the u.s. marshals upgrading it to a major case on june 6th. then they got a tip that led them to discover she had traveled to costa rica. [ speaking foreign language ] >> reporter: the sub director of the immigration police in costa rica said, i think she came here because she must have thought it would be easier because there's so many tourists and she would avoid capture because of that, but at the same time we're a small country, so we're able to find people quickly. >> and we believe after this month and a half investigation she really got comfortable. she felt that she had gotten
7:35 am
away but really within the long arm of the law. >> reporter: costa rican authorities telling us that armstrong was arrested at first she was quiet and compliant but she refused to admit her real identity and people we spoke to who met her there in costa rica and authorities saying that eventually being an international fugitive took a toll on her that when she was arrested she looked exhausted. amy? >> all right, matt gutman, thank you for that. we're going to bring in abc news chief legal analyst dan abrams for more. i guess you heard that authorities said it was easy to find her but had to go to great lengths to track her down. it wasn't that easy. >> the last time they know it's her is at laguardia airport. that's the last time she used her name, her passport. they get a tip that takes them to newark airport but the tip doesn't tell them where she's going. so then they have to figure out, okay, which passport did she use? they're able to figure that out. that takes them to costa rica but now she's got -- they've got
7:36 am
to find out, okay, where in costa rica is she using multiple aliases, following her around to multiple places. no one called this in and said she's here, she's here. so they had to do police work to find her and ultimately were able to find the bus that she had taken across the country. that takes them to the right place and eventually they find her. but it's a fascinating story when you look at piece by piece how they actually got her. >> and then she went to great lengths to avoid capture going as far as police say they believe she had plastic surgery to change her appearance. could any of her actions in terms of fleeing the country and how she tried to avoid capture be used against her in court? >> absolutely. consciousness of guilt. it happens all the time. we see it introduced against a defendant to say, you knew you were guilty and, therefore, we should be able to use that against you. >> and then there's this passport. u.s. marshals saying she used someone else's passport who was close to her, who looked like her. there are some guesses as to who that may have been. could that person be in legal
7:37 am
trouble? >> if that person knew, if that person helped her, if that person aided her, absolutely. if she just took the passport and the person didn't know she had take it, then probably not. that's going to be the key question. did the person whose passport it was know that she was helping her? >> a lot of questions still to be answered. dan abrams, thank you as always. t.j.? we want to turn now to a lightning strike that has killed william friend. he's the husband of "one tree hill" actress bevin price. this happened over the weekend. our janai norman here with that. janai, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, t.j. i checked with ginger. she told me lightning can strike up to 25 miles from a storm and this was described as a pop-up storm. so william friend was boating. it was a nice day and this was that typical coastal weather, a quick passing thunderstorm and then tragedy.

when he was struck by lightning while boating off the coast of north carolina. first responders rushing to the scene performed cpr. according to officials, attempting to resuscitate friend for 20 minutes before he was pronounced dead at the scene. >> there's really no safe place on a boat, especially in a lightning storm. there's a lot of metal on the boat as well as all of the wiring and any kind of electrical systems on the vessel. >> reporter: prince's "one tree hill" family now rallying behind her, heartbroken and at a loss. sophia bush wrote on her instagram story, please lift our friend up. she is a remarkable woman posted hilarie burton. friend's death is the third lightning-related fatality this year in the united states. just last month, the coast guard safely rescued seven people off the coast of tampa bay after lightning struck their 39-foot boat. this cell phone footage catching the moment lightning made contact. josh guy felt the bolt move through him. he was knocked unconscious
