about the massacre inside the conference room that left 14 people deed. survivors and -- dead. survivors and first responders sharing their horrific stories. cecilia vega has the latest. >> my supervisor yelled, run, said shooting, gunshots. >> reporter: there were four minutes of sheer terror. jenna was inside the building when the shooting started. people were running from the gunfire across the hall into sitting. >> where i saw the police and the people -- like, yeah, we will leave. >> reporter: syed farook and his wife wearing tactical gear wearing extra ammo armed for a rampage. opening fire inside a packed meeting and holiday party unloading 65 rounds. people, many of them farook's
amanda gaspar, an environmental health specialist fell to the ground, hid under a table, move. one of the shooters fired at her hitting her multiple times. her family saying they stood over her and could have easily shot her in the head. we are thankful to god that they shot her in the leg and arm instead. annie was in the conference room, too. >> hit straight above her head to the wall. >> reporter: she hid in a bathroom during the gunfire pushing others in saving their lives. >> all the people she was sitting with are killed, all dead. >> those poor people. that was cecilia vega reporting. a go fund me account has been created to support the victims of the shooting. letter the funds will be distributed evenly among the victims and their families via an official trust fund.
studio to talk about this is terrorist expert, a professor at new york university center for global affairs. thank you for coming in. >> my pleasure. >> we got to speak with you a few moments. what stands out for you in all of this coverage and what happened after the last 48 hours. >> well, i think -- it is tragic and unfortunate. what we are seeing is home grown cells. they are related to al-qaeda or isis or any other terror groups around the world. they are able enough to act on their own. for example, these young men
to come to syria to fight. >> the message is kill, kill, kill. isis has become prolific on social media. the husband, farook, seems like they were living a normal life. he was educated in the u.s. he had a good job. they had a six-month-old daughter. what is isis saying or doing that allows their hatred to seep into the life of someone living here to the point that they would carry out something like this? >> the appeal is that many of these people, though some are educated, they don't feel integrated. >> these people, they might say they are part and parcel of the community. if you have real conversations with them, heart to heart, they will tell you about their grievances. what they experience about
discrimination, 0 fresh chons that take place in many different places. what they are feeling is they want to express themselves in a manner to send a clear message, however distorted it may be to the whole world that we are going through this because enough is enough. this cannot be justified. >> america is filled with groups that feel discriminated against. not every group does this. >> i have to take you back to the colonial period. in the middle east in the wake of world war 2 have kings to do their bidding. what you have is animosity going back decades. that just comes down to 9/11, iraq.
most cite -- one of the most critical culprits. in terms of outrage, how to begin a process of containing this phenomena. that's why i blame -- i don't mind to say this, the leaders of the muslim community, the i moms who are doing little. i would like to see programs, dialogue between muslims to talk about what is wrong with this phenom men that so they can see and hear with clarity that there is something wrong. there is something that they can do about it. very little is done. that is the problem. >> you need to hear more deradicalization or a conversation making sure that people are not radicalized. >> absolutely. >> the difference with isis,
the weapons are here, the targets. why travel. >> any time, anywhere, especially in the united states. that's why you need a program whereby, again, religious muslims in their own creating this kind of program, outrage as well as our media. tv, radio, to be able to show, to demonstrate that there is another side to the story. >> to empower good, muslim americans. >> yes. we have seen press conferences that point out the fact separate the religion from are the extremists within it. we have seen a bit of that outreach. >> i would like to see every week a program, a dialogue, a discussion between muslims, on a weekly basis. just about everywhere. you have to make that campaign serious. you have to take it seriously in order to effect the kind of
to live with this for decades better. >> empower the good majority. >> exactly. >> thank you, sir. >> appreciate you being here. for the latest on the accused terrorist and the investigation, check out abc7ny on the web and of course on social media for the latest information on this quickly developing story. what a rough horrible week for shooting. coming up on eyewitness news on this saturday morning, a bombshell overnight. hundreds of pages of chicago

those are outlined in blue. most spots are above freezing pushing the numbers toward 40 degrees. all. low to mid-50s for today and on the accutrack, it's hard. we have to pull the screen out further to see the clouds. clouds. for this date, normal high is 47. we will beat that. above average temperature trend continues the next couple of days. sunset at 4:28, almost 4:30. november ends up above average november. a handful in blue were at or below average. december sets up the same story, the same scenario. the polar vortex that brings the shots of cold air from the north cannot move south. that is because the jet stream is steering with the strong winds and the high atmosphere.
we get the influence of the mild air that holds for the next five to seven days. maybe december 15th we see a change in the colder air. eastern half of the u.s. is looking good with high pressure in control. less wind than we had yesterday. still a west northwesterly winds coming in which will be cool. nothing to start the temperatures from getting above average. middle of the week, as early as tuesday, we can see a system out of the great plains then another coastal system meeting up on the shoreline. if that happens, at best, it's rain for the coast. not snow. temperatures are too warm. a coastal storm on tuesday is possible but not probable to affect the entire area. beautiful pattern. even as we get into late monday, long-term futurecast shows not a lot of strength in either one of the systems. clouds may move in monday. monday night this has a push to the east.
coast. that is something to watch. early chill, sunny and nice. below freezing in the suburbs with clear skies then tomorrow, love it. accuweather seven-day forecast, monday is above average at 53. tuesday is warm, 48. letter that could be the potential for the coastal storm. that will be just offshore. it could present rain at the coast. that will be one to watch for the exact track. thursday more and more that system is trending to the west. we will keep a chance for rain. temperatures in the mid-50s through friday. we take the long-term ten day averages, things will be going above the average line, maybe around december 15th a shot of the cold air and things change up. until then,ing it's warm. >> so far so good. >> like it. thank you. thanks, amy. straight ahead on eyewitness news on this saturday morning, new information about donald trump's claim of seeing thousands of muslims in new
