4:01 pm
good evening. i'm kate baldwin in for erin burnett. we have breaking news. the shooter who killed two and wounded nine at a louisiana movie theater, we are learning stunning new details about what happened inside that theater as he opened fire. louisiana governor bobby jindal revealed moments ago what survivors are telling him tonight. >> one of the surviving wounded victims played dead to stay alive. what we have learned from inside is that it appears that the shooter actually took his time and was somewhat methodical as he shot folks from the top, from the back of the theater. it appears more and more that he was planning his escape. >> we're learning the shooter, identified as 59-year-old john russel houser was able to legally purchase the murder weapon a handgun, at a pawnshop. that despite documented mental health issues he has had in the
4:02 pm
past. houser's family is speaking out tonight. rem houser telling cnn that he saw his deeply troubled brother one month ago. >> he just needed some money to continue moving on living on you know living surviving. so we gave him some. that was the last we heard of him. hadn't heard of him in ten years prior to that and hadn't heard from him since. this was a complete shock. >> anna, a lot of new details coming out from police and officials there. >> reporter: that's right. we're learning that the gunman entered the theater through the front lobby doors and with him he had this high-point .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun. after he opened fire shooting nearly a dozen people then he tried to escape through a side exit door near where his car was parked. police were already moving in. so he turned and went back
4:03 pm
inside turning the gun on himself. tonight, we're learning a lot more about who this shooter was. but his motive remains a mystery. 7:30 p.m. 20 minutes into a screening, 59-year-old john russel houser in the second to last row of a movie theater in lafayette, louisiana, stands up raises a hundredandgun and opens fire. mayci breaux and her boyfriend are in front of the shooter. >> he stood up and began shooting. >> reporter: breaux is killed. her boyfriend wounded. houser gets off 13 rounds before heading for the exit. he makes it outside but police responding in less than a minute are closing in. houser goes back inside and shoots himself in the head. taken to a hospital, 33-year-old
4:04 pm
jillian johnson dies a short time later. nine others are shot and wounded. houser arrived in lafayette weeks ago. he was staying at a nearby motel. it appears he carefully planned a getaway. >> we found wigs and glasses and disguises basically in his room. his vehicle had a switched license tag on it. it was parked right outside an exit door of the theater. >> reporter: houser nicknamed rusty, spent parts of his life in gormeorgia and alabama. he got a law degree ran for tax commissioner a job his father held. then went on to own two bars. hanging a swastika. he had a criminal record that included arson. he was a rabl rouser. often racist and homophobic spouting anti-government extremist. so extreme that houser was tracked by the southern poverty law center an organization that
4:05 pm
tracks hate groups. they released postings they claim were written by houser in recent years. hitler is loved and the u.s. is history, financially failing filth farm. houser's ex-wife filed aid protective order against him in 2008. he was committed to a mental facility. his wife citing his volatile mental state. then there's this ironic posting written in 2013. truth carries with it an understanding of death, rather than live without it, i will take death. now investigators say they are still trying to retrace his steps. they are interviewing who he may have had contact with since he came to lafayette back on july 2nd or 3rd they say. he may have talked about potential business opportunities. they don't know why he chose lafayette. of course, there is no clue as to what set him off on this rampage. five people remain hospitalized
4:06 pm
tonight. >> thank you so much. with us tonight is bobby peters. he was the mayor of columbus georgia, when john houser lived there. thank you for your time. you were very familiar with this man. he was also known as rusty around town. tell us about him. >> well first of all, our hearts go out to the victims in this and to the family of mr. houser. he comes from a good family. his dad was the tax commissioner here. very loved individual for many years. rusty, in the early years, was always active in city council and involved with issues at public forums and seemed to be wanted to be the voice for the citizens the champion of a cause. had a lot of dreams about what he wanted to do in early years. this is nothing like we had seen back in the '90s and the late '80s. >> you talk about the council meetings.
4:07 pm
he would show up regularly. you said he would go off on rants. what would he say? what were the rants about? >> he would pick an issue. local issues change every week. but he would find an issue, get on the agenda and have his facts laid out and present his case and go on talk shows and forums and he didn't trust government. he thought government was always operating behind the scenes and was not doing what we should be doing. he was always challenging officials. the same time he came from a political family. he wanted to be an elected official. it's kind of a dichotomy there with his actions. >> you were seeing an image that he put a swastika on a bar or restaurant he owned. at the council meetings i want to ask you about one situation in particular. you said he would get confront confrontational and one instance arguing with an attorney who was representing movie theaters. that takes on a different significance now. what was that confrontation
4:08 pm
about? >> well he was against pornography. at least that's what he stated at the time. the local attorney represented a theater, peep show owner. they had a confrontation back and forth. he was very much against that the water works, the school board. he had issues with the school board. he was very articulate. he was an intelligent individual. he wasn't cussing. he wasn't antagonistic. he presented his case. he wanted to be a lawyer. if you look at the pattern, he wanted to be a lawyer he wanted to be a nightclub owner, wasn'ted to be an elected official. over a period of time -- we're talking about the '80s and then through the '90s because i left the mayor's office in 2002 and had not had much contact with him since then. if you look at the pattern, he had all these dreams and they kept falling apart. it comes to a situation like this. >> a lot of people have dreams they want to be lawyers, attorneys, they want to be elected officials and they don't
4:09 pm
end up like this. shooting and killing in a packed theater. >> i totally agree. >> aboutsolutely not. was he always like this? do you think he became extreme over time? >> i think in his early years, he was kind of falling into his dad's footsteps. he was respected here very much. things just did not work out over a period of time. if you look at the entire pattern, yes, you can see a very erratic person doing a lot of irrational things. you can't put it -- a rational decision from an irrational person which is hard to predict. if you looked at his pattern, he wanted to be involved in government. at the same time he thought government was contrary to the citizens that he wanted to represent. he wanted to be their voice, i guess, is the best way of putting it. >> confusing no matter how you put it. >> no justification. from 2002 on he went totally downhill. had mental health issues.
4:10 pm
nothing he had done since then can be justified. >> a host of issues that we starting to see come to light. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. >> of course. as we were talking about, mr. peters is laying the background of john houser. we are told john houser fits the profile of what my next guest calls the most violent and dangerous individuals in the country. richard cohen is the president of the souther poverty law center an organization that tracks hate groups. richard, what -- i want to get your take. what do you make of what you heard there from mr. peters? this pattern that he lays out. at one point, he just saw john houser go -- spiral downward. >> yeah. it's a classic case that we have seen so many times before. a frustrated angry person looking for reasons outside of himself to explain his failures. goes to the world of racism
4:11 pm
goes to the world of anti-government extremism. then it erupts. maybe a triggering event, a touch of mental illness. the people in that theater paid the terrible terrible price. it's the pattern of a lone wolf. >> you describe him as kind of the most dangerous and violent type of person that fits in this profile. i want you to take a look as we do these days look at his online activity. what we know so far. he would write on forums dedicated to the golden dawn the neonazi party. he praised hitler. does any of this -- what you see of this profile, does this indicate that this guy was a ticking time bomb? >> you know he talked about -- he praised lone wolves on his web paeftostings. he talked about hitler tim mcveigh the oklahoma city bomber. there's a lot out there that
4:12 pm
reflects kind of an obsession with violence. i would mention, kate, that his white supremacy is nothing recent nothing new, rather. it goes back at least ten years, perhaps longer than that. so this had been some boiling rage within this person for a long long time. >> i think, of course no matter what you do you are not going to find lodgic in thee ik logic in the mind of a mad man. >> not at all. >> thank you so much. next i'm going to talk to a young man there and survived the shooting spree. how did he and his fiancee make it out? two teachers in the movie theater, they're being called heros tonight. their quick action saving lives. their story is also coming up next. donald trump's big promises. >> i would bomb the hell out of the oil fields. i won't send troops because you won't need them by the time i get finished. >> can he pull it off?

4:17 pm
revealing tonight that a wounded victim played dead to survive the shooting. the governor tonight commending two teachers who were shot by houser but still managed to save the lives of others. kyung lah is "out front." >> chaos. >> reporter: unfolding inside the movie theater. where high school teachers jenna mow and ali martin were celebrating. >> they took their training and put it into action even outside of the classroom. >> reporter: their training as teachers says friend and co-worker cammi, but training you don't expect to use while watching a movie. >> one teacher jumped in front of her friend saving her life. the second teacher said the bullet was coming for her head. both teachers were injured. the second teacher was injured in the leg. >> reporter: both shot bleeding yet somehow the friends who saved each other then thought of the 100 others
4:18 pm
in the theater. owe fishes say martin headed to a fire alarm. >> presence of mind to pull those -- that fire alarm to alert individuals what was going inside that theater. >> who knows how many lives she saved by doing that. >> reporter: people inside ran out, then began helping wounded. first responders tipped off early by the fire alarm, flooded the theater. now all too familiar image of grief and shock, a moment the teachers prepared for at a senior high school. the teachers met seven years ago, best friends ss jena meaux and ali martin. the pride in an act that likely saved many lives. they seemed unsurprised because after all, this is what their teachers do. >> keep others alive. how can we help others get to safety? that's how can we help our kids get to safety in the classroom?
4:19 pm
that's what these ladies were trained to do and they did it in just a blink of an eye. >> reporter: one of the teachers has been released from the hospital. the other may be on her way to being released soon. when they are, they are looking at some steep medical bills on teach every's salaries. even though they have insurance. teachers have set up a gofund me account account. they are rapidly reaching their goal. >> they should. amazing woman. thank you. tonight, a survivor of the louisiana movie theater shooting. josh thank you for joining us. i can only imagine what it's like now. you've had some time to process what you really experienced in that theater. what do you make of it? >> caller: honestly kind of crazy to think something like that would happen. you always hear about shootings happening. but you never think it's going to happen to you in your
4:20 pm
hometown. especially in a small town like we live in. just kind of surreal, really. >> absolutely. if you could, take us back to that moment when you realized you are sitting in the movie theater when you realize something was really wrong in that theater. >> caller: maybe ten, 15 minutes into the movie, all of a sudden you just heard a loud bang. i mean -- >> did you know right away? >> caller: a loud bang. almost like a firecracker went off, but it was louder. it the hurt your ears it was so loud. instantly, i knew it was a gunshot. i don't think -- there was no screaming or anything like that. you never heard anybody arguing. it just came out of nowhere. just pow. i grabbed my fiancee. we got down. as i looked up i could see he was standing at the top of the theater on the opposite side of us just standing in the aisle.
4:21 pm
then he started shooting again and firing more shots. i saudi arabiaw he wasn't pointed in our direction. i grabbed my fiancee and we ran around the corner. as we were running, that's when people -- the second shots started. we were already running. that's when more people started realizing what was going on. it kind of turned into chaos. and then everybody climbing over seats and running and screaming. once we got outside and called 911. >> in those i'm sure seconds that felt like hours, what do you remember specifically about the shooter? what was the look on his face? did he show any emotion at all? what do you remember? >> caller: a brief second i looked at him. the biggest thing that stood out to me was how calm he was. you know there was no arguing with anybody, no fighting. the way he looked at me while he was standing there, he was just very relaxed. i'm doing this.
4:22 pm
he just had this calm stance about him. didn't care about anything. just very calm. >> he didn't say anything? he didn't register any emotion as those shots -- as he continued to fire on people? >> caller: no, ma'am. never heard him scream, say anything. just like i said just stand there very relaxed just pointing his weapon and firing. >> which makes it all the more impossible to understand why someone would do this. josh thank you so much for getting on the phone with us. we appreciate it. >> caller: absolutely. thank you. earlier i spoke with colonel michael edmondson. >> have the conversation with your kids. what would do you in a situation like this when you hear a
4:23 pm
gunshot? what do you do? i think they need to have those conversations. put the cell phones away and have those conversations about who is your kid's friends, what were they doing. i think that's important. >> sure is. joining me now, former police officer, phillip holloway. what do parents need to tell their children or what does anybody need to know about what to do if they find themselves in a theater like this and someone opens fire? unfortunately, we have to talk about it. >> good evening and thank you for having me. i'm sorry we're having to have this discussion about this horrible tragedy that's one again occurred. the most important thing for people to remember if they are phased with an active shooter situation is to try as best as possible to remain calm and seek cover and if at all possible exit the situation, remove yourself from the building or from wherever you might be. that is first. there has been a lot of talk about whether people could carry
4:24 pm
guns into a movie theater or things like that. that should be only done as a last resort. in an active shooter situation, a personal sidearm is potentially more dangerous than the shooter. you really don't know what you are might be trying to shoot at. outside of one foot away from the shooter, a personal sidearm is not very effective. >> interesting point. every time we have discussed this every time you go to the movies you carry a firearm. you are trained to do so. do you recommend others to do the same? >> well that's a personal choice everybody has to make. i'm certainly not suggesting that everybody go without any training strap on a gun every time they go to the movies. that's not what i'm suggesting. in fact to the contrary. i would like to look at an example. if you look at ronald reagan's assassination attempt. his security detail very well armed. but they were not in a theertater
4:25 pm
but in a crowd. they chose a more prudent option and they tackled him. they overpowered him. that's the best way to deal with an active shooter rather than opening fire into a panicked crowd. that would be the more accurate and more prudent way to handle the situation if you ever find yourself in one. >> real quick, phil from what you have heard -- we're learning stories. how do you think folks handled this situation? this shooting. >> i think they handled it as best they could. i think the teachers we talked about were absolutely heroic. turning on the fire alarm, things like that and calling 911, getting police there as soon as possible absolutely is key and very important and saved lives for sure. >> saved lives. we hear that over and over again. thank you so much. next donald trump soaring

4:33 pm
boasting of the size of the crowds he is drawing. >> we had a tra memberemendous rally. >> reporter: he only drew 4,000 at the rally, a discrepancy he blamed on the host site for not wanting to admit they broke a fire code. we reached out to the trulmp campaign to get clarification, but they did not provide anything further. looking for the first republican debate it's a few weeks away. likely this pressure on trump to speak in specifics and clarifyclay clarify his positions, they will likely intensify. >> you can be sure of that. thank you so much. joining me ben ferguson and andy dean. great to see you both. andy she laid it out. this is why people love trump
4:34 pm
but this is also why people don't think he can be president. where is the substance? >> look i think that the piece you just showed over the past couple minutes was unfair to trump. trump is a leader. he is specific on specifics. this is a guy who spend life in the private sector getting things done. when he says he's going to build a ballwall he will build a wall. they can throw them up on his website, but he's good at building things. >> you are saying trust him? first off, it wasn't -- >> he has a record. >> he's got a record? >> how do you trust him to build a wall when he says the financer is going to be mexico and the second -- >> you slap a tariff on -- >> the stimulus that comes into mexico's economy from illegal immigrants sending money across the border is more to -- means more to their country than oil does to their country. they have a lot of oil that they are willing to drill in mexico.
4:35 pm
there is no incentive for mexico to build a wall when you have billions upon billions of dollars coming back into mexico. >> what you are saying makes no sense. >> ben, let him andy talk. >> it's negotiation. it's leverage. your point makes no sense. of course mexico doesn't want to build it. they will build it in a trade negotiation. >> here is the thing. this is where -- >> you don't have to -- >> hold on. >> ben, ben, wait. this is what the debate is about in terms of no one knows the specifics of how trump would make mexico pay. that's what people want to know. >> it's unfair. >> that's like saying in 2007 that we didn't know the specifics of what universal healthcare would look like. a leader sets a vision. i think obama's vision has been terrible. but he had a vision of universal healthcare. trump has a vision. when he starts governing, he will pull it off. >> ben, let me pose this to you. if this is such a big problem
4:36 pm
with some republicans, which some republicans say it is to trump's point, to andy's point that trump doesn't have any policy positions, why isn't that problem or his lack of specifics showing in the polls? >> i think it will. i think he has been filling a void early on to be the loudest, most obnoxious candidate. there are people that love it that he is throwing brimstone and fire at other candidates. but i would say this about trump's vision. is trump's vision for building this wall the same vision he had for some of his casinos that are now boarded up and filed bankruptcy. he sold those visions very well to the people and they didn't work out too well. to say that you are -- >> that's ridiculous. atlantic city is a hell hole a cesspool. >> a lot of people go to atlantic city would take exsession toex exception to that. >> it's a dump. >> why did you build it if it was a hell hole?
4:37 pm
my point is this -- >> the liberals that ran atlantic city destroyed it. >> why did he pick it? he's not a smart man. >> let's not debate the real estate value of atlantic city. it's very entertaining. i want to ask you about one other thing that trump has some explaining to do. he has been asked to explain. could be another problem for him. his ties to democrats. earlier today on msnbc he said he identifies with some things as a democrat. he goes on to say, i am a -- he says he is a conservative republican. but that comment in and of itself you don't hear republicans who are going to win a primary say that very often. is that a problem for him? >> no. it's not a problem. all the conservatives -- they want to put him in a box. donald is a real person with real positions. if he has to run as an independent, he will do it and probably win. >> he laid out that threat. can we continue this again? thanks so much. >> yes. >> sure. >> any time. >> have a good weekend.

the justice department tonight under pressure to investigate e-mails sent from hillary clinton's private e-mail server. the inspector general of the intelligence community revealing that some of the clinton's e-mails contained classified information, forcing clinton to address the news on the campaign trail today. >> we all have a responsibility to get this right. i have released 55,000 pages of e-mails. i have said repeatedly that i will answer questions before the house committee. we are all accountable to the american people to get the facts right. and i will do my part. >> how much did clinton know
4:43 pm
about the sensitive information? elise labott is "out front." >> reporter: clinton's private server e-mails contained classified information. the review of 40 e-mails found four of them had classified information. at least one released to the public. the inspector general's office telling cnn they were "classified when they were sent and are classified now." the problem, the information was never marked classified by the state department raising the possibility she may not have known she was handling sensitive information. the state department offering no explanation but suggested a disagreement over when to classify material. >> it seems like they are making a larger criticism of the way the state department handles classified material. >> i refer you to the department of justice. >> they are saying you compromised classified material. >> but we have had a very
4:44 pm
rigorous process internally and frankly sharing with other agencies when their equities are involved in clearing the e maims. >> reporter: clinton has long said she handled all information properly while using her private account. >> i did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail. there's no classified material. >> reporter: while she may not be the latest probe, it has been a distraction on the trail. including today -- >> there have been a lot of inaccuracies. maybe the heat is getting to everybody. >> reporter: where she renewed an offer to testify before congress. >> we are all accountable to the american people to get the facts right. and i will do my part. >> reporter: tonight, the intelligence community's inspector general said there are potentially hundreds of other e-mails on her server that could contain classified information.
4:45 pm
>> thanks so much. brian fallon, the clinton campaign secretary. clinton says she has never passed along any classified information from her private server. can you guarantee that she is not going to regret those words? >> what you have today is a dispute between two different agencies that are involved in the review of the 55,000 pages of documents that she sent over. the state department says that by their accounting they don't believe that this information was classified at the time that it was transmitted over her e-mail system and they don't think it needs to be treated as classified now. the intelligence community disagrees. they will have to work that out. there's been instances in the last couple months in the e-mails that have been produced so far where they have made decisions after the fact to classify things. we haven't had any issue with that. hillary clinton's position is simple. she wants as many of the e-mails
