isis claims responsibility for the terror attack in garland, texas. california's historic drought forces the state to take new drastic measures. and the mom who saved two of her kids when a gunman attacks her family. hello, everybody. great you have to with us. we would like to welcome our viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm john vouse and this is "cnn newsroom." we begin with new details about the two gunmen who opened fire outside a texas exhibit featururing ka toons of the prophet mohammed. u.s. forces believe the men drove from their home in phoenix, arizona, across state
10:01 pm
line toes garland, texas, but it is unclear when they made that trip. another law enforcement source says six guns were found in the suspects' car &, assault rifles and handguns all purchased legally. meantime, isis is claiming responsibility for sunday's attack which left two gunmen dead and a security guard wounded. authorities still don't know if the men acted on their own or if isis was directly involved. the terror group is warning of more attacks in the u.s. which has intelligence officials now on alert. >> we've got to try to keep one step ahead of them with our intelligence assets, with our law enforcement asset webs but, you know, we can't have a -- a circle of police around every public space in america. there are not that many police and that's not the country we want to live in. so we have to try to counteract this in all -- moving on all fronts, but a key element is intelligence. and interestingly, a key element
10:02 pm
is successful, careful monitoring of social media. these guys advertise what they're going to do on twitter. so that's something that this is a whole new world where we've got to have the fbi and our intelligence agencies monitoring social media. >> and with that in mind, it appears one of the gunmen had online ties to jihadists overseas. investigators believe a british isis fighter may have played a key role by inspiring the gunmen. here is pamela brown with details. >> cnn has learned one of the gunmen, elton simpson, directed a message on twitter to this account, believed to have belonged to an american member of al qaeda in somalia. drawing attention to the planned attacks in the dallas suburbs less than two weeks before the attack. simpson tweeted to r about the controversial event, when will they ever learn? that same jihaddy tweeted out about the event, referencing the
10:03 pm
charl charlie heb doe event. investigators now trying to determine if simpson was trying to get the jihadist attention or was actively plotting with them. a top fbi official saying the use of social media by terrorists is a daunting challenge. >> it allows like never before for overseas groups to reach into our communities to recruit, to radicalize, as well as to target our citizens. all in a very simple, easy to use way. >> back on april 10th, in a private twitter message intercepted by the u.s., cnn told simpson discussed with others how to get to syria. bring your passport. if you have $4,000, that's enough to travel with. hours before the attack, simpson urged his twitter followers to follow a known isis attacker. >> somebody known as a
10:04 pm
propagandai propagandaist, someone known for his hacking skills. >> tonights, we're learning more about the gunman's past. elton simpson was captain of his high school basketball team. his former lawyer notices how religious he seemed. >> he was a very devout muslim. i did get the sense that he was trying to convert myself and my staff and the people that were working with me. >> the second gunman, adir soofi, born to a pakistani father and an american mother. after his parents divorced, he moved to the u.s. with his mother and brother where he was popular in school and played the lead in his high school production of bye-bye birdie. tonight, his family is in disbelief. >> whoever he was with talked him into it. >> that's how you feel about it? >> yep. there's no other way it would have happened. >> law enforcement officials say two long guns and four handguns were found in the suspect's car. it is clear that they wanted to reek havoc. in fact, the traffic officer and the security guard who were stationed at the entrance were
10:05 pm
apparently minutes away from leaving. officials say had they not been there, had that traffic cop not been there with his pistol and shot and killed those suspects, this could have been a massacre. pamela brown, cnn, phoenix, arizona. >> a foundation for defense of democracy joins us now with more on this isis claim of responsibility. david, it remains unclear if isis was involved directly at this point. it seems unlikely, but does that matter in any substantial way when it comes to the claim of responsibility? >> no, it doesn't. the claim of responsibility at its essence is these guys were members of isis, which is extraordinarily clear. elton simpson's last tweet said specifically that he and the brother with him were taking bayat to -- which refers to the killer from the islamic state. this is basically the islamic state accepting their bay'ah. it is important to know did the islamic state direct it, did
10:06 pm
they have notice? there are certainly some things subjective out there, but it doesn't make a difference to the claim. >> so is isis basing their claim of responsibility on that one single tweet or does it suggest to you that there was some more interaction that we have yet to find out about? >> it doesn't suggest there necessarily is. the islamic state, unlike al qaeda, is very ready to take credit for people who act in its name. that's one of the reasons it's so effective as encouraging lone wolfs and other people who are acting under isis's inspiration as opposed to at its command. it's so quick to lionize them. thus, i think it doesn't make much of a difference to the claim. >> you make a very good point, that essentially these lone wolves attack basically, in my words, jihad on the cheap, if you like. >> absolutely. it doesn't take them much resources to inspire people to carry out these attacks.
10:07 pm
they have very little risk in doing so. one of the reasons they're effective, the use of social media. they've mastered the media. they know the lingo. if you look at terrorism traditionally, it tends to be a group phenomenon. for somebody to carry out acts of extremism and acts of terrorism, you might lose your life and you'll probably go to prison for the rest of your life, it takes hardened beliefs. groups tend to harden people's beliefs, further them on to action and stop them from backing outs. but social media now seems to be increasingly play the role of the group. we can statistically see the massive bump in lone wolf terrorism. this was not a lone wolf attack. there were two guys here. but you can see the bump of massive lone wolf terrorism which in my view is attributable to the changes in environment which these guys are radicalizing and the influence in social media and web 2.0. >> and when we say lone wolf, it was two guys, but it's not as if it was a sleeper cell. on the question, is there a
10:08 pm
downside here for isis after all this wasn't a successful terrorist attack. >> i don't think there's a downside. what they're trying to show is they inspired people. these guys have captured the media cycle. so even though its wasn't a successful attack, we're asking is there intelligence favor and things like that. i think that helps, a, show their ability to inspire and, b, their ability to scare their enemy, get attention. all of these play to isis's advantage. the fact that these guys were killed in about 15 seconds doesn't play to their advantage in part because they didn't waste any resources training these guys. >> interesting points. we appreciate you being with us. thank you. >> my pleasure. after the deadly paris terrorist attacks in january, french lawmakers are now pushing new laws to beef up the country's intelligence gathering. the lower how has approved the measure which would expand the government's abilities to keep watch on its own systems. michael has details on the bill and the controversy.
10:09 pm
[ speaking foreign language ]. >> reporter: by a vote of 438-86, a bill to give the french government broad new surveillance pours cleared its first hurdle tuesday in the lower house. in the wake of the "charlie hebdo" terror attacks in january, french intelligent laws were needed to be strengthened. >> this is a public service and this public service, because of this vote, is going to have a legal basis. >> the -- would give french intelligence services the right to use taps and other means to gather electronic data from cell phones and internet communications without a warrant. opponents say the bill is too intrusive. >> forward, the executive branch gets rid of judicial control of the intelligent services and has the potential to organize a

mass -- of the entire population through modern means. >> others say the scope of the measure is too broad, covering not just terrorism. >> economic issues, diplomatic issues. the issue of demonstrations, which may constitute a danger to public order. and not only is this scope broad, but in addition, it is very vaguely defined. therefore, it precisely allows an enormous amount of people to be put under sur veil a ens. >> reporter: the debate now moves to the upper house of parliament, expected to vote on the bill in june. michael holmes, cnn, atlanta. security was tight at an annual litary galla in new york where "charlie hebdo" was honored with a freedom of expression award. it was not without controversy, more than 00 members protested the decision to honor the magazine which publish controversial cartoons of the prophet mohamed.
10:11 pm
"charlie hebdo" lost eight staff members. the editor in chief accepted the award. >> fear is a must. but we must dim disarm them. they don't want us to write, we must write and drove. they don't want us to think and laugh, we must think and laugh. >> and the crowd gave the editor a standing ovation. u.s. attorney general loretta lynch visited maryland on tuesday. the top law enforcement official met with leaders, police and clergy. she was optimism tensions will ease the racial tensions which have gripped the city. what i have heard here today is how all the people of baltimore, every group i have mentioned and certainly everyone with whom i am privileged to meet is committed to making that better.
10:12 pm
by that, i mean both community and police alike. >> at the center of the issue, 25-year-old freddie gray's death and the days which followed. now six baltimore policemen are facing charges and cnn sat down with evan perez and described how he first found out about those charges. >> tell me your reaction when you found out that the state attorney was preparing to bring charges last friday. >> well, i found out that the state attorney was going on is she was going to present probably about ten minutes before she went on. she gave me a phone call and told me what she was about to do and that she was going on live. she told me what the charges were. >> what were your first words out of your mouth when you heard that? >> i don't want to get into that so much. like i say, i was probably surprised, you know, by the information that i heard.
10:13 pm
again, my mind started going to, well, it's going to be the response to the community? what is going to happen in the community? i went to what is going to happen with my officers? it's clear the day that i stepped on ground here in baltimore that there's a lack of trust within our community and the police department and certainly parts of our community. so we've been trying to do that from day one by being transparent, being open, when we make mistakes to share that with the community. >> the freddie gray case to you represents what, an aberration, something that set you back? >> no. i think we're going in the right direction is what i'm trying to say. by every metric that you measure a police department on, we've hit a home run and we're going in the right direction. there is a lack of trust in this community. that's going to take healing. that's going to take us acknowledging as a police department not just here in baltimore but law enforcement as a whole that we've been part of the problem. >> baltimore police commissioner anthony batts there. in california, the drought
10:14 pm
has forced regulators to adopt manned the other water restrictions. this requires an immediate 25% cut in overall urban use. follows an executive order by jerry brown, the fist time in california's history that mandatory cutbacks have been ordered. voluntary water restrictions fell short of the state's needs. let's go to meteorologist pedram. they asked for voluntary cutbacks. they didn't get it. but the point is, without coming into summer where there's a lot more water being used and there's more scope here for water safety. >> and the restrictions are getting pretty strong. only 9% of the water usage has been on the decline as far as the cutbacks being put into place. earlier in 2014, the governor called for a 20% reduction. 9% reduction is what was able to be attained. we know statistically speaking the state uses roughly 38 billion gallons of water every single day.
10:15 pm
this would drain california's largest reservoir every 40 days. about 80% of use is agricultural. the restriction isn't going to include the agricultural for the vast majority of them being the residential areas and golf courses and such will be impacted by this, as well. in towards northern california, santa cruz county, the numbers showed they used the least amount of water per person per day. 4500 gallons. northern portions of san diego county, these over 355 gallons of water per day. that's over 1,000 every single day each person uses. the governor says we need to take that number and make it about 55 gallons per day per person and about 355 gallons per day is used on outdoor landscaping. that number has to be cut significantly to make a difference. you know how we got here. the sierra snowpack is literally nonexiste nonexistent.
10:16 pm
about 5% of what is considered normal. even in 2015, the first four months of the year, the driest on record and records go back to the 1960s. down to less than 3 inches have fallen so far in 2015. never have we seen this for the first four months of the year and this pattern continues. can he talk about how heavy it is. almonds, they uses about 7500 gallons per pound. the numbers are staggering when it comes to how much water they need, how much water they're using, as well. >> and a lot of people are saying, too, that they need to start addressing the problem with the agricultural side of things because they are the biggest consumers and if they're going to make big savings, that's why they're going to have to find it. >> only 2% in the agricultural industry brings it to the state
