5:00 pm
no ifs. >> and if it makes people prepare, what is a little earthquake earthquakery. jeanne moos -- safe in new york. >> did they really play that music. be sure to set your dvr to record "outfront" so you can watch up any time. anderson starts now. >> good evening. thank you for joining us. breaking news on two fronts. we've learned about a major development in the washington quad rupep murder evidence tieing the suspect to the scene. but first the boston police shooting of a man radicalized online by isis. they say he was armed and may be following the order to murder law enforcement. now the suspect was under 24 hour surveillance and so were others. deborah feyerick has more. >> investigators are schg his
5:01 pm
home and his computers because they do believe he was radicalized online and accessing isis propaganda and other groups. not clear if isis contacted him directly. we can tell you he was making threats to police officers on a level of alarm sufficient that authorities decided that they were going to question him today. so they moved in he was standing at a cvs and they approached him and the fbi chief said there was no arrest warrant or intension to arrest him and very surprised by his response and reaction when he took out the knife and came at both an fbi agent and a police officer. they repeatedly ordered him to drop the knife and he refused to do that and when they felt they were in danger that is when they opened fire. all of that was under investigation and it is unclear why he had the knife. and it was a sizable knife. >> and it was it inside it
5:02 pm
looks like it was on the outside. >> it was on the outside. >> and it is possible there could be video. >> not only is there video, it is going to be shown tomorrow to different groups because there is question because the brother's accounts. >> the family said this is not what happened. >> that is correct. and the brother who identified rahim as the man wielding the knife and the man shot and he said his brother was waiting for a bus and waiting to go to work and confronted by members of the joint terrorism task force and he was confronted and able to place a phone call to his father because in his brother's words he wanted a witness to listen and the father heard the shots, the imam the brother, is saying that his -- that he was shot three times in the back and authorities are saying that not what happened that in fact he was he was the aggressor and he had the knife and he was shot once in the abdomen and once in
5:03 pm
the torso. >> and it seems there would be enough forensic evidence video on autopsy results to validate one story or another. >> that is exactly right. an the fbi is worried that the threat here in the united states domestically will increase exponentially for the fact that anyone that can go online can be radicalized and that is the danger and the threat to make sure they are reaching out to the local police department and say you are on the front lines and will see anything that happens first and in this case it was a boston police officer that opened fire first when he confronted the suspect. >> deborah, thank you very much. and the breaking news in the washington murder savvas savopoulos and the housekeeper held captive and killed. dna for darren wibt found in the pizza crust. and it was said he could not commit the crime because among
5:04 pm
many things he does not like pizza. whether or not that even matters, it seems that is not the only evidence they have to go on. pamela brown has more on what was found and how it might connect the suspect from the victim. >> traces of blood from one of the murder victims were found on the shoe that daron wint was wearing when he was arrested a couple of weeks ago. according to my colleague evan perez as well. the blood was matched to the victim following forensic analysis after the arrest you see there. they took everything he had on him and conducted the forensic analysis and they found blood on of one of the victims on the shoe he was wearing right there. >> do we know which victim. >> we don't know. it was the couple amy and the son and the housekeeper.
5:05 pm
we don't know which victim. we dough darren winter is charged with first-degree murder of savvas savopoulos but we don't know how that comes with the blood on the shoe and there could be more charges coming and authorities do not believe he acted alone and this is an active investigation. >> and they believe more charges will be brought. and more on the search for additional suspects and everything else that goes into the case. and former fbi assistant director, tom febt fuentes -- thanks for being with us. and how reliable is blood evidence on a shoe? >> anderson that is completely reliable and analyzed and used for evidence purposes for decades. and i think the public and this attorney if he ends up
5:06 pm
representing representing wint could confuse a jury saliva on a pizza crust, but blood evidence on clothing on a person being charged with a crime, that is hard to argue and he would have a difficult time twisting that evidence and confusing a jury because again blood spatter evidence for decades has been usable. >> i have interview his one time attorney whether the attorney will hire the guy or not, last night and it was con fund founding and he said he met with wint over the weekend and he can't have done this because he comes from a large family and he has a child and he has a child and he wouldn't harm a child and he therefore won't be a murderer sand all of those seemed like
5:07 pm
ridiculous logic and those with large families or people with children don't commit murder that is just ridiculous. >> it is ridiculous. he's making these arguments, the argument that he doesn't like pizza, my argument to that is now what are you going to say, he doesn't like shoes either it couldn't be his shoes hes what wearing when he was arrested. because the attorney makes goofy comments we shouldn't give him ability to be seen as a kredsible person. >> and again, obviously this man is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law and we'll see if other charges are brought, as pam said. and a quick reminder set your dvr to watch ac360 whenever you want. racing to find hundreds of people trapped in a capsized cruise ship. we have a correspondent on the scene as a around the clock rescue is under way right now.

5:12 pm
lions roam free and visitors are warned to keep their windows closed at all times. a 22-year-old woman was killed. gary tuchman joins me now. what are they saying. >> we are getting the firsthand from what happened inside of the car, the driver in fact. there were two people in the car, one of them the 22 american woman who died and the other was the owner of the tour company. the owner is pierre pot heater the owner of calla bash tours and driving the vehicle at the time of the incident. and the wife of mr. pot heater her husband entered the lion enclosure with the windows up and not down. the account makes a particular note of that because there were reports that the window was down when entering the enclosure but
5:13 pm
according to this account, they were not, they were closed. >> and if the windows were up and that raises the question of how did the lion get into the vehicle. >> it does raise the question. when the two people pulled up to view a pride of lions and he said the american tourist rolled down the woend to take pictures and then he fended off the lion injuring his arm, a serious injury and he he saw his passenger bleeding from the neck profusely. and he hurt his arm and also suffered a heart attack. >> and was the driver able to help her at all. what happened? >> he tried his best to stop her bleeding with constant pressure to her neck and called for help. he said it felt like a long time for the ambulance to arrive but
5:14 pm
they did say it did arrive in a timely fashion. the woman passed away a short time after the ambulance arrive. and the tour company is with holding her identity at the request of her family. >> appreciate the new details. and this isn't the first time a tourist has been attacked at this very wildlife center. two years ago a lion attacked brent tucker's family at the park. he joins me for an exclusive interview. brett, can you tell us what happened when your car was attackality this par -- attacked at this park because i understand your father had the window open to take a picture. >> i dropped it open to take a photograph through the top and i take a photograph and my dad saw a bird and he was looking through the binoculars for the bird and the next minute there was a crash and the next minute there what a looirn paw that -- a lion paw that got his paw in through the window and the
5:15 pm
window collapsed and the lioness got into the car. my father was able to get my daughter away. >> what do you do when the lion itself was getting into the car. >> it was crazy. it probably feels like it is forever but it was probably 15 seconds i suppose and my dad amazingly got my daughter out of the way and was holding her to one side and the lion bit him on the er and able to get both paws into the car and around his neck. and the next was a bit crazy and i leaned across and punching the lion in the nose and i'm not a big guy and i don't think it looked at me with much amusement and we realized we're in a mess of trouble and i went and hit the gear leaver down and it went straight into drive and that sort of moved the car forward a half a meter i suppose and with that half a meter moving forward i think the lion lost its footing and released my dad and
5:16 pm
sort of fell out the window and i then hit the accelerator and we drove off and the lion walked back to where it came from like nothing happened. >> that is incredible. were you yelling, was your daughter screaming at this point? >> yeah. yeah. it is insane. my daughter had a small nick on her shoulder from where the lion pawed -- it didn't touch her. amazing it was a small mark on her leg when the lion was in the car. she was going crazy. my dad was incredible. the lion was biting him on the shoulder and he just held my daughter out of the way. he had bite marks and they stitched him up across the board and made a decision that i was going to take my daughter back to the lion park just because i didn't want her to have that experience because it is not the way lion's behave. we took 100% responsibility for our woend being open -- window
5:17 pm
being open because it clearly states that you shouldn't open yurp window and i think the thing is the window was slightly ajar and it is not normal for a lion to attack like that. and when we went through, when we went through the camp again, i was blown away with five our tourist vehicles driving around with their windows wide open and i thought, my first reaction to my dad was this is only a matter of time before something happened again. >> so while you are taking responsibility for the incident where you had your window partially down you hope and believe the park could do more to let other people know that they shouldn't have their windows down whether it is -- should there be more signage or talking directly to other people? >> my letter to them was quite simple i said guys with all respect, you cannot allow self-drive in a park when the
5:18 pm
lions are as agitated as they are. the reality is they have vehicles there that are completely caged. >> the employees are driving around in caged vehicles. >> correct. and if you go to a wildlife park in south africa they won't react and jump into the vehicle and if the owner of the lion park has cages, he's done it for a specific reason. and i understand why the library park is there, it is an amazing place and in fact any person who doesn't have an opportunity -- has an tount go it is a great place to go and understand and learn about the lions, but for me you can't put -- the saddest thing is you can't put the consumer at risk when you know there is a potential for that to happen. and yes, it is well signed and posted and yes they do give you information before you go in about closing your window, but for me the risk is too high.
5:19 pm
and when you have the vehicles readily available and when you have the vehicles there, why not say you have to get into a vehicle for us and we'll do the trip for you. >> i appreciate you for taking your own actions and informing the park and giving them advice and unfortunately they didn't follow up on it. and we'll see if any happens now. we appreciate it. >> thank you. and we'll take you to the scene of the yangtze river where a cruise ship capsized and time is running out for the hundreds who were trapped on board who may have survived. and new details about caitlyn jenner's transition and i'll talk to buzz bissinger who spent hundreds of hours with caitlyn jenner sharing her journey. boys?

breaking news a world away and minutes could mean life or death for hundreds of people. they are trapped inside of this ship on the china's yangtze river. the fate of more than 400 passengers and crew are unknown and for the lucky, we don't know
5:24 pm
how many found air pockets and their fate is in the hands of those racing against the clock to try to find them. david mckenzie is there for us. >> reporter: this 65-year-old woman is lucky to be alive. emergency responders placed an oxygen tube in her nose and rush her to safety. she spent an entire night trapped in an air pocket in the capsized crew ship until rescuers rescued her. sh emergency worker taps the ship's bottom hoping for a response from passengers inside and appears to hear signs of life. welders use blowtorches attempting to cut the hull open. and in another array of hope, this 21-year-old man is rescued and rushed to the hospital. he too survived in an air pocket. >> translator: the bottom of the ship had an air of layer cushion two meters thick.
5:25 pm
the diver said he was sitting on the pipe in the upside down ship bottom. while finding anyone alive lifts spirits of those here on site there were nearly 460 on board when the ship capsized the majority of then senior citizens although the youngest passenger was just three. authorities are scrambling to rescue many more and investigate what happened to the ill stated eastern star cruise ship. it was heading up the yangtze river on a multi day cruise when it was hit with what some say a violent storm, perhaps a tornado. you are lasting what is believed to be the ship before the tragedy, just about 30 minutes before it capsized. lightning and rain streaking across the rain. this shot from a surveillance camera of a passing ship according to state media. the china weather center later
5:26 pm
confirmed a tornado with winds up to 65 miles per hour did in fact hit the ship on monday night. as down breaks on a second day of searching, scorches of soermds put a korldon here. they have had a huge amount of help here to try to find survivors but as the time ticks by it is becoming extremely unlikely that more will be pulled out. while hundreds of passengers and crew are still missing and feared dead both the captain and the chief engineer made it out of the ship alive and taken into custody for questioning. >> and david mckenzie joins us now. and i understand they just expanded the search area. >> reporter: that is right. 90 miles down river and that is an extraordinary large search area for a sinking ship of this kind. and can i tell you the weather is playing a huge part in the
5:27 pm
pampering of the research area. it has been pouring on and off for hours and hours after what is considered a freak weather incident that happened so quickly that people were trapped as water was pouring into their cabins the prospect of finding anyone is slim but a steady extreme of rescuers are coming in and they still hope someone is in there in the air pockets that they can pull out. anderson. >> have they heard any banging or anything? obviously they are on part of the ship itself correct? >> reporter: well yesterday late into the day they pulled a 21-year-old man who had been banging, showing signs of life. but in the last several hours we haven't heard any positive news i must tell you. and that is what they've been doing, walking along the hull and tapping the hull with tiny happen -- hammers and see if anyone will tap back and that is
5:28 pm
the rudimentary technology they are using and then going in there with divers and this is a murky river so it is dangerous work to try to get people out and with the expanded search area tells me they are less confident they can find people immediately in the advicinist vessel. >> david, we appreciate the update. we appreciate that. and the latest on other stories. amber walker has a ac360 news bulletin. >> the most powerful man in world soccer is stepping down. sepp blatter said he will offered to once a successor is elected, days after he was re-elected and less than a week after the sports governing body was targeted in a corruption investigation. the senate approved a bill reforming surveillance programs. the usa freedom act ends the bulk collection of millions of americans phone records. and the bill now goes to the president for his expected signature. doctors say secretary of

new insight tonight on caitlyn jenner's transition from bruce jenner. a look at the highly anticipated debut who transitioned into - being a woman. the cover says it all. call me caitlyn. it is about her life and her true self-she said. it was written by the contributing editor buzz bissinger, who spent a incredible amount of time with caitlyn jenner and joins us time. and you spent a huge amount of time with bruce jenner and caitlyn. are they different? do they seem difference? terms of appearance obviously. >> they are very different in appearance obviously. they do seem different. and it is a work in progress in a sense we're just getting to
5:35 pm
know caitlyn. caitlyn is just getting to know herself. caitlyn is having more fun in life. bruce had no fun in life the first 15 years in life was very lonely and alone and not motivated in the shadows of the kardashian family. and reaching out to the jenner kids more than ever before. happy alive and learning to listen and learning about empathy, which were all characteristics frankly that bruce never came near. >> and that was interesting in the art. >>le one of the many things before it he wasn't a very good dad as bruce jenner to his kids. >> he wasn't. he was not a very good dad to the jenner kids the first four kids from the two marriages. and i have to tell you, they are exceptional kids. as different from the kardashians, you can be. not to knock the kardashians. they are grounded in life. and bruce, after he married kris
5:36 pm
jenner this is on his shoulders. basically abandoned them after entering adolescence. and it is hard we love our fathers. this is a national hero and who won the olympics and in the story he said i wish i hadn't won the olympics because then i wouldn't idolize him. and you can see the looks on their faces, this scars them this really hurt. no birthdays, no graduation never calling. the sense that you don't matter any more. i'm with the kardashian kids and who he loves and the two youngest kids and you guys are gone. >> and do you think the greatest achievement comes from a personal loss or a sense of -- i don't know ---in fiery ort or something, it comes from pain do you think his accomplishments as an olympian rooting in bruce
5:37 pm
jenner's feelings of i am a woman. >> i think he became a good athlete and looked for diversions in life in what do i have to do in which i don't to think about this and i want to prove my masculinity because that is a big deal in our society and i said what better of a diversion is there than the decathlon. >> and what was your first time that you saw caitlyn jenner? >> after ten hours of plastic surgery and later that day became caitlyn. the first time i saw her, you are uncomfortable, because you don't know what to say and you don't know what to say. you're used to bruce. and i'm used to hearing bruce. >> and you said this was weird. >> you bet this is a weird
5:38 pm
story. it is weird. we have to get our r's around -- aur arms around there. we don't know a lot about transgender men. and let's face it. it is bruce jenner. america's god. he was a god in 1976. i'm 60 years old i remember vivid lick the olympics because the united states got its clock cleaned, we won no medals in track and bruce saved us because sports is powerful. it is politics. >> and one thing you wrote in your article and people were surprised and you said i've been a cross dresser with a fetish for women's leather and the often arbitrary diliniation between men and women's clothing. did you talk to caitlyn about that and do you think that helped in paving the way to get this -- i think the axis you got was incredible. >> the axis was incredible. and it was initiated by grady carter a year ago, let's talk to him.
5:39 pm
bruce was still bruce. we think this is a major story. so the lines of communication were open and i was selected because of a sports connection, i wrote friday night lights and there was a sports connection and i wrote a lengthy story for gq that i like women's clothing i do cross dress and i know what it is like to be different and how people will ridicule you and tolerance is difficult and so that gave us a common bond and for me it was i know to some degree what you are going through and how hard it is to be different than people's expectations. >> even though i do want to point out, cross dressing is different than transgender. >> very different. and i don't want to presume that i'm in your footsteps. >> no. but i think i know what it is like on some level to be made fun of to be different and i get that. the other thing, the secrecy surrounding the way you wrote this article was intense: i haven't heard a procedure like
5:40 pm
of in stories. >> it was like the dark days at the journal. >> how did you do it? >> a lot of we used the phone, it was off the grid making corrections, they were arduous. >> you did it on a computer not connected to the internet. >> it wasn't expected to the vanity fair system and by phone and literally by hand and every correction was by phone. >> because of the circus that surrounded him in terms of -- caitlyn and formerly bruce jenner in terms of paparazzi and people following. >> and a leak. look those pictures are incredible. and we didn't want them out before. we didn't want the piece out. and neither did caitlyn. caitlyn said i will not let a paparazzi make money off of me. this is a big deal. i will not let a paparazzi make money off of me so i have -- if i have to stay in my house for two months that is what i will
5:41 pm
do. >> that is what she's done. and you talked to her after the photo came out. what was her response. >> overwhelmed. >> overwhelmed? >> her twitter handle has exploded. >> i think it had a great impact because i think she realizes i have a responsibility i have a responsibility to the transgender community to urge tolerance and without the reaction both this and diane sawyer interview, i think it would have been very very different, she knows she can help people if she wants, she can make a major, major difference. and has. >> and already has. a fascinating article. >> thank you. great to be on. >> buzz bissinger from vanity fair. a city targeting dog and cat owners to make cash. if they can't pay the fines the pets are killed. we're keeping them honest.

my constipation and belly pain feel like a raging storm. i've tried laxatives but my symptoms keep returning. my constipation feels like a heavy weight that keeps coming back. vo: linzess can help. once-daily linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation. linzess is thought to help calm pain-sensing nerves and accelerate bowel movements. linzess helps you proactively manage your symptoms. do not give linzess to children under 6, and it should not be given to children 6 to 17. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain especially with bloody or black stools.
5:43 pm
the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include, gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. bottom line, ask your doctor about linzess today. we live in a world of mobile technology, but it is not the device that is mobile, it is you. real madrid have about 450 million fans. we're trying to give them all the feeling of being at the stadium. the microsoft cloud gives us the scalability to communicate exactly the content that people want to see. it will help people connect to their passion of living real madrid. there are some things you just count on like clean drinking water. but today, one in three americans can't be sure their drinking water is safe from pollution. the clean water rule wll protect the streams and

5:46 pm
cities are using to raise retch. in colorado springs we found what some are finding a blatant shake down not by police but but animal control. >> their names are jake and lucy and home is colorado springs with the mcadam family who adopted both of them but now both of the dogs family pets are staring down a possible death sentence accused of killing a neighborhood cat. >> had your dogs ever arm harmed -- harmed or killed an animal before. >> no. >> investigator been aggressive before. >> no. they've never done anything before. >> but they have no choice. the dogs are considered danger and the attorney has filed charged and threatened to euthanize the dogs. because someone thinks they saw mcadams kill the cat back in
5:47 pm
january. kate caitlyn and her husband had no idea there was a problem until animal control showed up at her house to seize the dogs. >> they thought we could just go to the humane society and prove that and get them back. >> she could not be more cause. there was a probable cause hearing to determine if the county could hold her dog. and caitlyn had ten days to come up with $1,200 to come up for the fees for the dog's incarceration and no payment and the dogs would be euthanized within days. >> the case is hardly unique. in fact a investigation by cnn money which looks at 13 active cities found warrants against pet owners that include a barking dog, a dog without a license and an animal loose in
5:48 pm
the neighborhood. and this may be about more than pets. it may be about money. a lot of it. the fines and fees raise millions of dollars across the country. more cash poor towns and cities. but caitlyn is convinced some animal control officials are targeting low income families those who can't afford to pay. >> and the fact that i could be looking at jail time for something like this is just ridiculous. i just feel like if i were someone living in a gated community this wouldn't be an issue, this wouldn't be happening. >> and as steep as the fines are, people like caitlyn mcadams said animal control knows they'll find a way to come up with the money to save their beloved animals. >> did you have that kind of money? >> i found that kind of money, no i didn't have this. hi to find a way to come with it. >> in colorado springs we asked
5:49 pm
for an skplags as to why jame and lucy who have never been in trouble before are facing a death sentence. >> they are notified to get the money within ten days of the hearing. >> what if they can't get the money. >> there are ways for people to come up with the money to do this. >> always -- that is not exactly the case. in stockton california this dog was seized after he was seized and he could not get out after he was seized. the fine was $180. >> she said animal control refused to refused to budge on the fine. in the end chunk just 4 years old was euthanized over less than $200. >> it was like killing one of my

kids it really was. we were devastated. >> the animal services manager for the city hired after her dog was put to death, told us it was a terrible mistake. >> it appears it was more about the getting the $171 or the $183 being asked instead of getting the animal returned to the owner which now that is what would occur. >> back in colorado after nearly three months locked up the dogs lucy and jake got a reprieve. they are home temporarily. only because the judge ruled they wouldn't be a danger to the community if they were under strict supervision. now they have to wear muzzles when walking outside. they can't be walked together. and if outside off leash, they have to stay in the yard where there is a six foot fence. meanwhile caitlyn's attorney said the d.a. is trying to cut a deal. >> the d.a.'s offer is plead guilty and we'll kill your dogs
