6:33 pm
this. >> i have problems believing that somebody who was so nice and so personable could just turn into a killer like that, a cold-blooded killer, you know? reporter: the ross truett ashley that allegedly killed a virginia tech police officer and then shot himself is not the same young man that steven hook remembers from high school. >> if you engaged him in conversation, he was well spoken. when i knew him, he had a plan, he wanted to get into business and, you know, he had a plan for his life. reporter: ross truett ashley graduated from spotsalvaynia high school in 2007. he was a running back on the varsity high school football team. >> he was starting fullback that year and starting fullback for varsity. reporter: there were no answers for ashley's home in virginia where driveway signs discourage those wanting to pose questions. neighbors had little to add. >> he was a clean-cut young
6:34 pm
guy, but standoffish. reporter: more recent acquaintances from radford university were at a loss to reconcile the standoffish business student they knew with the suicidal killer ashley allegedly became. what could happen to a person to change in such a way? >> honestly, to me, a question like that is definitely for somebody who has much better understanding of the human psyche. reporter: in partlo,ar mando, truel, 9 news now. a fatal shooting in northeast washington leaves one person dead and a teenager wounded. it happened early this morning at the exxon station in the 4500 block of bening road. police say they found steffen wade of upper marlboro and a 16- year-old female inside the car. both had been shot. they were taken to the hospital where wade later died. we're told the 16-year-old is being treated for nonlife- threatening injuries. so far police have made no arrests in the case. republican presidential hopefuls will square off in

iowa tonight in just about an hour. it's the first debate since herman cain suspended his campaign and the first with newt gingrich as the frontrunner. ron paul and mitt romney were next behind gingrich in iowa polls. earlier today gingrich released a statement saying he supports a negotiated peace agreement between israel and the palestinians, including a palestinian state, but palestinian leaders today condemned gingrich for calling palestinians "an invented people who are really arabs that want to destroy israel." drew levinson has more on the story. reporter: the new gop frontrunner newt gingrich spoke to iowa veterans this afternoon. he talked about peace in the middle east. >> when the president keeps talking about a peace process, well, hamas keeps firing missiles into israel? reporter: the former speaker of the house is in the middle of a controversy regarding comments he made on the palestinians on the jewish channel. >> there was no palestine of the state. it was part of the empire.
6:36 pm
i think we've invented palestinian people who are arabs. reporter: a spokesman for the palestinian authority criticized gingrich saying it is also obvious he needs a history lesson to know that the palestinian nation existed before even the american nation itself. in an interview this afternoon, gingrich didn't back down. >> i think it's a real argument because it goes to the heart of whether or not they have a right to return which they don't. there's no historic basis for the right of return and that's the heart of the argument because the right of return would mean the extinction of israel. reporter: gingrich now tops most national polls and that has rivals gunning for him. >> there are $37 million gingrich took from healthcare and industry groups. reporter: and an ad attacks gingrich's influence. he'll have a dirs debate tonight as the american frontrunner.
