of the moon, the first human being to do so, by the way. that was in 1969. the mission was apollo 11. neil armstrong died today from complications following heart surgery. he was 82 years old. all nine people wounded in that manhattan shoot-out yesterday were hit by police gunfire. that is according to commissioner ray kelly. police officers fired 16 rounds at jeffrey johnson near the empire state building after he killed a former colleague on the sidewalk. we'll go live to new york in just a few minutes. it's already starting to rain in south florida as tropical storm isaac makes its slow trek along the northern coast of cuba inching closer to the united states. the storm has killed two people in haiti overnight. ripping through tent caps where hundreds of thousands of people live. most of the island has no power. live to haiti in just a moment as well. so far isaac has not derailed any plans for the republican national convention, which starts on monday in tampa.
currently only tropical storm conditions are projected for that area, but there is a hurricane warning for the florida keys and parts of southwest florida and the coast. the governor has declared a state of emergency but he says republican convention organizers are making the call if there will be any changes to their big event in tampa. america's most famous astronaut, neil armstrong, his name means one thing to american history. the moment the united states took that one giant leap onto the surface of the moon. as we said, he died today. he was recovering from major heart surgery and was 82 years old. john zarella is joining me now, let's talk about neil armstrong. his place in american history is solid and how the space community, i'm sure, how they are feeling today is just horrific. >> reporter: yeah, there's no question about that, don. it's -- you talked about the heart surgery, had about a month or so ago, and i recall talking to some of his colleagues after
that. they all expressed the fact that they thought he came through it pretty well at the time, but as you mentioned in a statement his family released today, they said his passing at 82 years old from cardiovascular procedure complications. so certainly it turned for the worst in the last couple of weeks or so. i did speak with bob griffin, who was the pilot for the first space shuttle flight and a long-time friend of neil armstrong, and griffin told me we lost a great american. it's a sad day for the country and the world. he was a very, very private person. i talked with him and saw him a couple of years ago. it was at the 40th anniversary of apollo 14. he always came to those events whenever he could to support the other members of the apollo program, every time they had an anniversary event. but even in those things, while he was most comfortable there
and seemed most at home, he was always surrounded by people. everyone wanted to touch him. everyone wanted a picture of him. that was one of his last public appearances. another one of his last public appearances was in 2009, the 40th anniversary of his first flight. and he did speak at that event. >> we are humans that couldn't have explored without the work of robert gardner. but certainly never -- it's an unpredictable thing, which is why the future is so difficult to foresee. but you can try.
thank you all for helping us celebrate this space flight anniversary. >> reporter: one of the other things he always supported was going to the kennedy space center be part of the astronaut scholarship foundation, that many of he and his colleagues founded years ago. to support the sciences and engineering, they give scholarships out to university students who are in aerospace and engineering and math. that was what he loved dearly to support. in their statement today, the family called him a reluctant hero. and i think that's probably about the best way you can put it. >> john zarella, appreciate your reporting. thank you very much. we just got the latest from the national hurricane center. tropical storm isaac maintaining 60-mile-per-hour winds as it hugs the northern coast of cuba setting its sights on the west coast of florida and the gulf of mexico. cnn's martin savage is live in haiti where the storm ripped through earlier this morning.
martin, many people there are still living in tents, okay, martin is not hearing us, but he is reporting live from there. can you marry me, marty? marty, can you hear me now? >> reporter: yeah, i can, don. it's coming in and out. let me tell you what the update is regarding the circumstances here in the southern portion of haiti. it took an extreme blow from hurricane, it seemed like it. tropical storm isaac came in last night at 11:00 when it really picked up. all night long until 10:00 in the morning you had the very extensive winds beating up against the coast. then on top of that you had the torrential rain. as you might have pointed out in the introduction, there are a lot of people. over 400,000 are living in some kind of temporary shelter, many of them in tents, as a result of the earthquake from two-and-a-half years ago. this kind of storm coming in with those living conditions could have spelled disaster. the good news is it didn't
although it's a great deal of misery here. many tree limbs have come down and many roadway were blocked much of the morning. they have since been cleared with power lines coming down, telephone lines have come down. we understand the water supplies have been interrupted. there's one depth reported in the area. they fear there could be more, but it could take time before people find out. there was extensive street flooding and there were at least 1,000 or more people that had to be evacuated to the rising water that came up very quickly last night. in all, given the dire predictions that remain, just of the high winds and especially the heavy rains, it did not turn out as badly as it could have. as we know, this is a nation that had no shortage of devastation and disaster. misery is nothing they need more of. tom? >> martin savage, thank you very much. i won't venture a question since you're having trouble there and understandably with the tropical storm. let's move on now to talk about cuba. many cubans feel that they dodged aullet with isaac. havana experienced heavy rains
and winds. people pulled boats out of the water and drove cars to higher ground. so far no reports of major damage. east of havana isaac made landfall in the town of bericoa where several hundred people had to evacuate but no serious problems reported. the national hurricane center gave an update moments ago. let's bring in our meteorologist jennifer delgado for the latest on isaac and what's happening. >> hi, don. i have two updates. we do know now that the tropical storm watch has been extended along the western coastline of florida. and also the track of the storm now over towards the east a bit more. but i want to point out to you again for the tropical storm watch, we do know now that it will be along the west coast, near the swanee river. i want to point out to you that we have not seen a change in intensity, still at 60 miles per hour.
as it moves to the northwest, this is sunday at 2:00. as we mo to monday morning, you can see it will be to the west of key west. what's going to happen here, whether conditions are going to be deteriorating quickly on sunday. in the morning we are expecting tropical storm conditions. as we go into the afternoon and evening, we are expecting what looks like hurricane conditions down to key west, the florida keys and potentially in the western part of florida. now, i want to point out one thing that's a big difference from last hour. it is now moving in a westerly direction away from tampa. this will be a category 1. this is monday, 2:00. then notice, i'm using the water water here, it will strengthen into a cat 2 with winds of 100 miles per hour. then eventually tracking up to the north. i want to point t this is in the panhandle. this is panama city to give you the idea of it anywhere from the east of new orleans all the way over to the western part of florida. this whole region needs to pay close attention to the system. there is a chance we could see
this deviated. right now the warnings and watches are in place. you can see the pink shading. that's our hurricane warning. miami, you are also under a hurricane watch. and i want to know this area in yellow now being extended. you can see where the tropical storm watch is. as we go through the next couple of days, we will still be following a lot of the models and watching how the system does organize. right now 60 miles per hour just off the coast of cuba and it looks like it will be continuing to move in the westerly direction. it will be hugging cuba but moving through some very warm waters. we are talking right near 90 degrees. perfect development for this system. yeah, still a tropical storm, but a hurricane very likely. >> and you'll be watching it for us. thank you, jen, we appreciate it. we learning more about the shooting near the empire state building, including how nine innocent bystanders were injured and why the victim might have been afrads afraid of being attacked by the gunman. us, 10 g.

police responded and killed the shooter. several people were hurt, nine in all. and that's part of the investigation we are talking about right now. jason carroll is in new york tonight. >> reporter: police surveillance video captures the shooting in front of the empire state building. 58-year-old jeffrey johnson suddenly appears to pull a gun when confronted by two police officers. police fire. johnson goes down. amateur video shows a different angle. johnson is still moving after being shot. he dies a short time later. nine bystanders are hurt during the shooting all by police bullets, including robert asika, a tour guide. >> i turn around and a guy pulled out a gun. the police officer shot him and one of them shot me in the arm and i fell. >> reporter: police fired 16 rounds but were quick to explain why so many innocent people were
hurt. >> there were a dozen other objects around, so when the officers did fire, they had bullets that fragmented. in essence, that caused the wounds of the bystanders. >> reporter: police say the shooting happened moments after johnson shot and killed a former coworker. 41-year-old steven erkalino. he was laid off a year ago but had a long-standing grudge against erkalino over sales of his designs. witnesses say he used his .45-caliber pistol to shoot erkalino in the head. then he kept shooting. >> it was really loud. then we heard like four more shots. we are like, okay, that's gunshots. so we all kind of like scoot over and we looked to see a guy in a gray suit just walking away. >> reporter: johnson's neighbors said he lived alone in this apartment building on the upper eastide with his cat.
one recently had died. >> he was the nicest guy. i think he snapped. i don't know. >> reporter: jason carroll is joining us live from the empire state building. jason, if they had not taken that man down, many more people could have died there. tell us what you can about the bystanders. anything more? >> reporter: well, don, there's been a lot of speculation about how exactly those nine bystanders were hurt. who exactly was at fault? well, today police commissioner ray kelly confirmed that three of the bystanders were, in fact, hit by officers' bullets. the other six were hit by fragments but none of the injuries were life-threatening. >> anything nor or more, you mentioned the relationship between the shooter and the target. what more do you know, if anything, about their relationship? >> reporter: well, those reports we were hearing yesterday, that the two had some sort of a tumultuous relationship, there was a grudge between the two of
them. today the police commissioner ray kelly shedding more light on that. he said at one point erkalino had filed a police report against johnson and saying that he said that johnson had threatened to kill him. but also johnson had also filed a police report against erkalino. so it's very clear that these two had some sort of a tumultuous relationship. what we don't know at this point is what set johnson off yesterday? >> the investigation continues. thank you. how good are you at your job? find out why if you lie about your abilities, fudge it just a little, people might think you are better than you really are. be surprised be productive. make a sale make some lunch make it movie night. play a game or an old favorite.

ever wond why sometimes the least qualified people rise to the top of the career lad her? yes. a new study may provide insight. researchers at the university of california berkeley say when you think you're betting at certain tasks people tend to believe you. a psychologist is joining me now from los angeles. dr. tart, this study is absolutely right. i don't know what you think, but why are we so easily persuaded by others confidence in our
perception and our perceiving them? >> proverbs 27:3, as a man an woman think, so they are. we like people who are really confident. in psychology we know it is self-efficacy when you believe in yourself. the more you believe in yourself the more others tend to believe in you. here's the catch, even when you don't know what you're talking about. >> so can psyching yourself out, psyching one's self out really help achieve or undermine success? >> oh, absolutely. let's talk about the positives. one, if you believe that you're already something, you're going to behave that way. you'll bhaef as if. in the entertainment industry, they create audiences for people who say they are great to develop a talent to think they're great and then develop into how people see them. however, when you start thinking about paranoia, how the world is out to get you, you start having self-defeating thoughts about what you can't do, you tend to

adoctor, you are a lawyer, then they see themselves doing that. it's really that simple, what you are you think about. >> you sound like the secret. i don't know if you remember the secret from a couple years ago. if you think it -- >> it's true. >> you have to be realistic. i would like to be an opera singer but i can't sing a lick. you want to be realistic about your talents. >> that's true. there's a study out that shows if you put in 10,000 hours of work in a particular profession, you'll be successful, regardless of your talent level. that's noted in the book called '"outliars." >> fake it until you make it. thank you. appreciate it. tropical storm isaac is poised to become a hurricane before it hits the u.s. people along the gulf coast are getting ready filling sandbags and are boarding up shops. we'll take you live to the florida keys next.

all nine people wounded in that manhattan shoot-out were hit as a result of police gunfire. that's according to the police commissioner, ray kelly. police officers fired 16 rounds at jeffrey johnson near the empire state building after he killed a former colleague on the sidewalk. none of the bystanders' wounds are life-threatening. it's already starting to rain in south florida as tropical storm isaac makes its slow trek along the northern coast of cuba inching closer to the u.s. the storm killed two people in haiti overnight ripping through tent camps where hundreds of thousands of people live. most of the island has no power. isaac is maintaining its track and speed according to the national hurricane center. its setting its sights on the west coast of florida and the gulf of mexico. cnn's jim spellman is live now in key west. jim, it's usually sunny and beautiful there, not so sunny right now. the city getting ready?
>> reporter: indeed they are, don. yeah, we have seen some squalls of showers move in, not too bad here, but they really want visitors here in the keys to leave. they added exthat flights today, but after that last night leave at 7:00, that's it. the only way out is a two-way road and 220 miles back to the mainland of florida. they want anybody to leave, to leave. anybody staying, they have four shelters set up for those living in trailers and those on their boats off their boats. people come to key west to party. and people that are staying are not going to let the hurcane get in their way. some of them are already planning their hurricane parties. i kagt up with a man named paul that came from chicago who said he won't let isaac ruin his fun. listen. are you going to evacuate, paul? >> no. >> reporter: how come? >> we came down here to have a good time. i'm not going to let a little hurricane get in the way. so we go on lifetime experiences
and hear about hurricane parties so we'll have some fun with it. >> reporter: don, the mayor here told me in the past they have gotten lucky when storms come past and they are hoping to get lucky with isaac. >> you mention one road in and one road out at the end of the keys. you mentioned that but are people getting out now? >> reporter: people have been. they have been trickling out all day. we understand traffic is flowing smoothly. people who live here who are seasoned vets of these storms say if you're going to get out, go early. if you're not, stay. there are narrow stretches where it is just elevated road. they say one accident can back the whole thing up. that's why they really want people out of here before it really starts impacting the islands tomorrow. >> can you do me a favor, jim? can you give us a little tour and show us around a little bit where you are? >> reporter: sure. check this out. this is duvall street, the main drag. normally on a saturday afternoon it would be packed with people. frankly, they would be fairly
tipsy at this point. now some families and locals are enjoying it not being crowded. usually this is the boardwalk of key west. now it's not quite a ghost town, but definitely not nearly as packed as it would be on one of the last summer saturdays of the year. >> in august, i was just there memorial day, that place should be packed right now. thank you. appreciate it, jim spellman. good luck. a major storm looming offshore as republican convention delegates arrive in tampa. should they be worried about this weather? well, we'll take you to florida again for the very latest on the storm preps at the gop national convention. n ving. but you see, with the help of her raymond james financial advisor, she had planned for ever eventuality. ...which meant she continued to have the means to live on... ...even at the ripe old age of 187. life well planned. see what a raymond james advisor can do for you.

that means politics and specifically we'll talk convention politics right now. mitt romney's wife ann will speak at the national convention in florida on tuesday now instead of monday. originally scheduled for monday. now she'll do it on tuesday. the romney camp decided to delay her speech by a day after learning that the big three broadcast networks would not be carrying the first night of the convention live. so ann romney is a strong asset for her husband's campaign and moving her to tuesday night will ensure a larger audience for her primetime speech. vice president joe biden also making a schedule change. he's canceled the campaign events scheduled for monday in tampa because of tropical storm isaac. campaign officials say local law enforcement should stay focused on protecting citizens and emergency response efforts. mitt romney and his running mate paul ryan are not in tampa yet after making a stop in ohio. it is a state that like florida is crucial to their white house
hopes. they have been outside columbus and drew thousands of people. romney had president obama's conventi speech on his mind. >> as he lays out all these wonderful things he's going to do, people are going to stop and say, but how are you going to do something different than last time? they have experienced the last four years and know if they re-elect him they get four more years of the same. it is not his words that people have to listen to, it is his action and his record. and if they look at that, they will take him out of the office and put people into the office that will actually get america going again. >> let's go now to tampa and bring in senior political director mark preston. mark, good to see you. mr. romney, mr. ryan spent a lot of time this morning hammering the president on the economy. are they trying to get back to their core argument in this race now? >> reporter: they certainly are. it's been a very tough week for the romney campaign. don, they wanted to stay on message and talk about the economy and have people focus on it. in the run-up with the convention next week, that's
been sidetracked by the controversy regarding todd akin, the congressman from missouri who is running for senate, who said some very, very strong language. that has been very embarassing to the republican party regarding rape. in addition to that, we have this storm right now that is charging up into the gulf coast and will, in some way, impact where we are here in tampa right now. mitt romney wants to talk about the economy and wants to rally his base as he heads into next week. that's exactly what he was trying to do this morning, don. >> they are trying to get back on message. yesterday talking about the birth certificate, he said it was a joke. whatever it was, it took him off message and now the headlines are that instead of what he wanted it to be. let's listen and talk about the storm. what's happening there? do they pretty much think it's not going to affect the situation in tampa? >> reporter: yes, so from this level right now, i've been speaking to somebody who is on all the telephone calls between the state, the local and the
federal officials as well as the rnc officials trying to figure out how they will handle the storm when it comes up towards tampa. now we know it will not be or we are told it will not be a direct impact on tampa, which is very good news. 50,000 people from across the country are expected to be here in tampa and started to arrive in the past couple of days. but what i have been told is there is concern about very high winds. winds that could, in fact, close down the bridges. and get this, don, it's not to evacuate people from this area, it's actually to get some of the delegates to the convention center. there's no one talking right now even privately on the telephone calls about evacuating at all. but yes, the convention right now, the organizers have got to be a little concerned because right now what are we talking about? we are talking about the weather, not mitt romney's message. >> absolutely. and also getting people in with the airports, too, if the winds are high and if there's bad weather, that could affect them there. listen, i mentioned that the vice president was not going to go, he's not going to go to
tampa. that's probably a good idea, a good strategy on his part. >> reporter: yeah. very good strategy. in fact, i can tell you there were officials down here in florida that did not want the vice president to come down here. the resources are so taxed right now with the convention, had he come in he would have had to pull the law enforcement resources away. in addition to that with the storm coming in, it was a smart move for him not to come here. however, there is a war room so to speak, a political war room being run by the democratic national committee in the obama campaign that i've been told one war room will shut down if the republican national committee decides to curtail their political event down here. so politics is still very much at play, but i do have to say this. everyone is a professional. if things tend to head south, so to speak, we'll see both political parties show a little bit of respect for one another and to stop the politicking, at least temporarily, don. >> okay. we hope. thank you, mark preston.
don't forget, cnn's live coverage of the republican national convention starts sunday night and then again monday night at 7:00 p.m. eastern. romney revealed, family faith and the road to power. it's going to air again at 8:00 here eastern on cnn. a harring video showing toddlers being forced to fight each other. and it all happened at a day care center. attorney holly hughes is joining us next to talk about the case. but first, one way to get through a difficult circumstance is to talk with someone who has been through it. that's a premise of imer man's angels connecting cancer patien patients. here's our hero of the week. >> all of a sudden it was like somebody took a syringe and stabbed me directly in my left testicle. at 26 i was diagnosed with cancer, so i had to go right

doctor is accused of waterboarding his daughter. these are accusations, we have not proven them got yet, but it is disturbing indeed. two little 3-year-olds and they are encouraging them to child. they are charged with endangering a wild, engaging the weld fair of a child, reckless engagement, and assault. >> the day care providers have been suspended. who is liable here? the day care or the state? >> the day care did their due diligence. i have been reading the reports on this, they ran background checks on the workers and the workers came up clean. so at the time they hired them the day care had done what they were supposed to do under the law. the problem now becomes, don, was this an ongoing thing and who knew about it and when did they know about it? so the owners of the day care, did they knsnow in that could py
into this, but the owners won't be held liable. one of these women is 47 years old. can we just say that? talk about you show know better, encouraging 3-year-old little boys to punch each other. unbelievable. >> innocent until proven guilty, but it's a crazy store. the day care's business license suspended. we said that delaware doesn't have an issue with this, with liability, so it will be on the day care. >> exactly. it's coming down to the day care owners, what they knew and when. >> i want to talk about a story in dallas, texas. a young woman found dead in her home two days after making a desperate call to 911 screaming for her life. police went to the home but left when they didn't see anything wrong. city leaders are investigating now and her family wants answers. could the city be responsible if her death? >> it's possible. we need to know who dropped the ball here. the allegations are that the
officers who went to the house, who were dispatched to the house, were not given all the information the 911 operator had. and that's where it comes down to can she be held personally liable for not passing on this information. the officers who went out there acted responsibly with all due diligence. they were not aware when this phone was called in, this woman is screaming for her life. the 911 operator taking the call clearly can tell the woman was in distress. that was never relaid to the police officers who went out there, hollered out, didn't see anything wrong and left. if there's liability, and it is very difficult to hold a city liable, it's going to come down to the actions of the 911 operator, not the officers. >> thank you, holly hughes. we'll follow all of these. the republican national convention gets started on monday, but comedians are already having fun with the gop gathering. creamy peanut butter, and a rich dark chocolate flavor. plus, 10 grams of protein.

athena jones in columbia, maryland, for us now. are people staying positive in light of all of this? >> reporter: they absolutely are, don. four hours into this 24-hour bike ride. there are going to be people riding the majority of that 24 hours to raise money for the lance armstrong foundation. they're going to be sharing money with a local cancer research group. the organizers and the riders we've spoken to here are all remaining positive. they stand behind armstrong's decision. they also say they believe him. they believe he's been riding clean all these years and that all of this news is really a distraction from what his true legacy is, which is cancer research. raising money for cancer research, don. >> how much of support are you finding for lance armstrong the cyclist versus the anticancer campaigner? >> reporter: it's an interesting question because it's really a little bit of both. you have people who say that, yes, we recognize him as the champion bicyclist, but really
the more important part of it is his fight against cancer, his fight to raise money for cancer research, raise money for people who can't afford to get their cancer treatments. and so one question we ask, though, is will this news affect fund raising? will it affect the money that people donate to livestrong? here's what one of the organizers had to say. >> we received so many messages from people that their resolve to fight was even greater. that it's not about fight, it's about fighting cancer. he's inspired people to do is to get on the bike and raise the funds for those who need it. so i think it's something that on our end we will see people getting more engaged. over the last 24 hours, there's been $25,000 of donations that we've received. >> and now you heard him say $25,000, that's just this event here in columbia. lance armstrong himself tweeted yesterday, you know, thanking
all of his supporters worldwide saying that between thursday and friday, donations were up 25 times. so it certainly doesn't seem they're too concerned that they're going to be affected when it comes to fund raising about this. as i mentioned, you're going to have some people who reached 300 miles over the course of the next 20 hours or so of bicycling here, don. >> in his initial statement the other night, he did not admit any guilt. he just said i'm tired of fighting these accusations and actually called out to people who were going against him, the anti-doping agency. but a real question, you know, i tweeted what happens with the yellow bracelets right now? what do i do with my yellow bracelet? and people say wear it with pride. i would imagine when you're talking about a disease like cancer that would override any situation that lance armstrong may be dealing with. >> reporter: that's certainly the response that we've seen here. i mean, this is about people who are dealing with cancer, people who have lost people to cancer. you have people t
