tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  October 3, 2017 9:00pm-10:00pm PDT

9:00 pm
>> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. this is "cnn tonight." i'm don lemon. we're live here in las vegas. our breaking news, stunning new developments in the worst massacre in modern american history. we have new photos from inside the shooter's stephen paddock's hotel room at the mandalay bay right behind me. the feteose show a luxurious room scattered with guns and ammunition. and in one what police confirm is the lifeless baudo of the shooter. we're also learning that the
9:01 pm
shooter's girlfriend, mary lou is on the way to the u.s. back from the philippines. [ gunshots ] >> go back, go back. get back. get back, get back. >> cnn's kyung lah is here with more. she joins us with the investigation. let's play some more of the buddy cam footage and then we'll talk. let's watch. [ gunshots ] [ sirens ] >> there's gunshots right here.
9:02 pm
[ sirens ] [ gunshots ] >> go that way, go that way. they're shooting right at us, guys. everybody stay down, stay down. where's it at? >> north of the mandalay bay. it's coming out of the window. >> so we know the first 911 call started at 10:08 p.m. the shooting went on for about nine to ten minutes according to investigators. you see in that video the unthinkable becoming real to first responders and concert goers. >> reporter: you know, we should try to put this into perspective, don, as we listen and look at these images. you may notice that these first responders, they're wearing these vests.
9:03 pm
they're wearing a vent vest. and the reason why they're wearing them is because many of them were working that event. it was a music festival outside in an openen airspace. and so as soon as that gunfire started, they started running towards them. and i don't know that if it's body camera footage and what we've seen before are from concert goers and they're trying to escape. these are first responders running towards the gunfire. they're actually running towards it. so when you hear the sheriff describe why it ended so quickly, that the shots appeared to end at about 10:19, just nine minutes after the first 911 calls came in, it's because those first responders started running and immediately engaging the gunman inside the hotel that's just right over my shoulder. >> and today the clark county sheriff joe laum bardo said paddock's girlfriend, mary lou
9:04 pm
dannelly is a person of interest. by the way, we understand she's on a plane back to the u.s. >> reporter: we understand the plane has actually just landed, don. we're hearing from the filipino bureau of investigation. and what we're learning is she did depart the country. it has already land in los angeles. what we do not know if she is getting on another flight here to las vegas, or if she's going to be working with authorities in los angeles. we don't know very much about her movements. what we do also know, don, is that she did travel the region. she had been in tokyo, the bureau of immigration telling us, telling cnn that she had left -- arrived into the philippines on september 15th from tokyo. and then she had traveled around the region to hong kong, returning to the philippines and had been there up until now when
9:05 pm
she departed today. don. >> all right, kyung lah with the latest on the investigation. i want to turn now to an amazing survival story. anthony was wounded in the mas but didn't even realize at first he'd been shot, but he joins me now. how are you doing? good to see you, and we're glad to see you're okay. you were released from the hospital today -- >> actually last night. >> so what happened? >> we were having fun. i kind of got unfortunate. i was there with some other friends and they had all pretty much left. my ride had left. he decided he was going to go home a little early because he had work. i had a few other friends and they had left, so i was there with just one friend. i kind of had the same reaction as everyone else. we heard the initial fire, and at first i thought it was
9:06 pm
fireworks just kind of like everyone else. and i looked up and there were no fireworks in the sky. i kind of recognized the cyclical sound afterwards and recognized it was gunfire. so i got ready to start moving and grabbed my friend, and we started heading out. we got maybe 10 or 15, 20 feet right before everyone else kind of realized it was gunfire as well, and they started to stampede. so as we were going we were trying to escape around the bar. we were central, kind of central to the concert in the middle of the crowd where the bar was. we started to go around. as we started to go around the bar, other people started trying to dive underneath the bar to get under tables and things like that. my friend, she did that. there were some rounds to the left of me that went off, just kind of ricochetted off the ground. >> you could see them and hear
9:07 pm
them? >> i saw the last two, so i instantly just kind of jumped on top of her. that was kind of my first reaction was to just cover her up. and as i did that, i landed on her and turned my head so i didn't hit her head. and a round went off and i got some shrapnel in my face. >> i want to show you this, because this is a picture of i think the bullet that hit you. and when did you realize you were shot? >> yes, so that's the round that actually went into my face. i realized i got hit with something immediately. it popped my head back. so i kind of touched and saw blood. and my first reaction, i just grabbed my friend and i said we got to go. so i picked her up, i got her up and as we were turning to run, i got shot again in the leg. so i took a round just above the
9:08 pm
kne knee? >> and you're wearing the brace and then you have the walker. how bad is the injury? >> so half the round broke off and actually embedded in my femur. and other half of the round kind of split some shrapnel around it. it's just above the knee. the hospital said because authorize no infection present, they're going to release me. but i am going to get a second opinion. i have some family friends that are doctors, and they said if it's in the bone it should be removed. so i may still have to have surgery. >> how far did you run? >> oh, man, a good amount. we were in the middle of the bar, and it exit round we took, we ran back and around to the right and towards the back. and fortunately all the responders throughout this whole thing, las vegas metro, was just so on point. they were calm, collected. they funneled people. they kept people calm as much as
9:09 pm
they could. and clearly the people that weren't keeping calm, they were helping. but they'd opened up the back towards the private airport area. that's where we ran. i mean -- >> does this feel real to you? >> yes and no. it's still kind of settling in here and there. as i hear other people's stories and things like that, it's starting to hit more to home. i just kind of count my blessings all my friends got out safe. and i know a lot of other people didn't, so i'm just trying to keep a good head on my shoulders and be happy about what i have. >> thank you. glad you're okay. for now. let's hope that heals properly. you've got to get a second opinion, right? >> yeah, i get a second opinion tomorrow at 12:45. >> when we come back, going to talk to a family of a woman who was wounded and in the hospital tonight. ♪ one look at you and i can't disguise ♪

she is in critical condition tonight. the girls bought the ticket to the concert as a mother's day gift. >> we were all just having a ball. starting jason aldean, i don't have the video footage anymore, but i have video footage of us just having fun, singing along videoing him. and i captioned it as the best day ever. >> so you were dancing around, having a good time and describe what happened. >> well, the gunshots started and no one thought too much of it. and we're just singing and dancing and all of a sudden you hear jason stop playing and everyone just runs. everyone's being pushed down, being covered, everyone screaming, people are running. i'm the oldest of four and i've always had a motherly instinct.
9:15 pm
so first instinct for me was where's my family, where's my friends, what's going on? i hear my sister screaming i got hit, i got hit. and i didn't know what he was talking about, and somehow a light was shining on her arm and she was just covered in blood, her whole hand, her whole arm. and i looked down and i see my mom laying face down in the grass. and by that point people had run away from where we are at and we were able to flip her over. and just immediately you saw the gunshot wound in her chest. >> do you remember what happened? do you remember how you got separated? >> i don't remember being hit. i remember when the light shone, was shone, that's how i knew i just was covered in blood. i mean i got absolutely lucky it just grazed my elbow abouten
9:16 pm
inch deep. >> but you didn't know that then. >> i didn't know that then. i saw the skin just flopping there. but i saw my mother there, and that was my main concern. i didn't feel my arm or feel pain until hours and hours later. and i remember i was on the phone with my boyfriend, she was on the phone with hers. and between her and my dad, and i can't remember just hearing through the phone stay calm, stay calm. and the retired paramedic or firefighter was saying the same thing. he was like stay calm, you guys have to get out of here. so the next thing i knew was i knew that i did not want to leave my mom. but i knew that was what i had to do in that particular moment. >> and you went to the hospital and -- >> yes, i was taken -- >> that's how you got the -- >> so, yes, i was taken to a hospital by an ambulance and i was with another victim who was shot in the back. and once we got to the hospital,
9:17 pm
they brought us in. and i was sitting -- i mean there was just chairs lined up everywhere. i mean it was a real life graze anatomy episode. >> what scene did you see in the hospital? >> this image will never leave my mind. this woman had a bullet in her forehead and blood was everywhere. i was literally right in the corner where they were wheeling people by. there were people with wounds legs and feet and arms and just about anywhere you could think. >> did you feel helpless? >> yes. >> because you were at home, right? >> yes because i was their designated driver to pick them up. my wife texted me about an hour
9:18 pm
before saying how much fun she was having. and i was thrilled she was having so much fun with my daughters. and then i was texting stephanie. she was saying how much fun that they were having. and then two minutes later i get a text from her saying omg, there's a shooting in front of us. and then i got another text, she says mom is hit. so i immediately called her, and she was crying, yelling saying, daddy, i'm sorry. i'm sorry, daddy, i'm sorry. and then i said i'm leaving, and she said leave now, leave now. by the time she said that, i was already on my way. >> what was going through your head? >> the unknown. not knowing if they were alive, not knowing if my wife was alive. she was telling me they were being forced to leave on the phone.
9:19 pm
that if they didn't leave they could die, too. so i hung up, i called paige. paige was crying. she said, daddy, i got hit. up until that point we still didn't know where my wife was. they couldn't locate her. so metro advised us go down to metro headquarters with all the other family members and they would have a briefing. so that's where a lot of families went to. so every so often they would come out and give a name update on who's been in the hospital. they did that three times and my wife's name was never on that list. so now i'm beginning to panic thinking maybe the worst. but also knowing that there was so many casualties that there was still hope.
9:20 pm
and i kept that hope in me, and i kept my faith. and after over 11 hours we finally got information that she possibly was at sunrise hospital where paige was treated. and once we get to sunrise hospital, a caseworker met us to confirm she was there and took us up immediately to the icu unit. >> what did you feel? >> relief, happiness, grateful. but at the same time grieving. my heart was broken for those family members that lost their loved ones, that were killed. and i prayed for them. >> do you think you'll ever be the same? >> no. no. experiencing that and living
9:21 pm
that -- living through that, fighting through that, you hear the stories on the news all the time. and my heart breaks when i hear things about this. you never think it's going to happen to you, and you hear them say all the time you don't think it's going to happen to you. but the moment it does -- >> it's indescribable. >> my worst feeling was having to leave my mom. and i was the last of our group to be with her. and i thought for sure that i would not ever see her again, so those 11 hours that we waited, i mean -- >> they were probably the hardest time of our lives, the not knowing. >> and not being able to do anything. >> yeah. >> i was so mad that i couldn't do anything to help my mom, i
9:22 pm
couldn't do anything to help my sister. >> there's nothing you can do. and if someone's telling you to run, what do you do? >> what do you do? >> i just told him you don't understand the relationship with my mom and i, i have to be here. i can't leave without her. i can't, i can't. and i was willing to stay and take a bullet to be with my mom. and i know if it wasn't for that man my mom wouldn't still be here. and i know if my friend wasn't with me, i would have stayed. and if i would have stayed, i would have died. >> these are the family members told me after they didn't hear from her for a while, they had thought she had died. and then they got the news she hadn't, and it's an incred credible story. we wish them well. and the man they talked about
9:23 pm
who helped them is one of many true american heros who risked their own lives that night. we're getting more information on the 58 people killed here in las vegas, nevada native quintan robins coached his little brother's football team. his aunt says everyone who met him loved him. las vegas resident neysa tonks. and 34-year-old carrie barnette was a disney employee for ten years. her -- and canneddous bowers was a mother of three including a 2-year-old she had just adopted.

we've got much more ahead here in las vegas on the worst mass shooting in recent american history. we also have some breaking news
9:28 pm
tonight on russia investigation. cnn has learned some russian linked facebook ads specifically targeted michigan and wisconsin, two states crucial to donald trump's victory last november. that's according to four sources with direct knowledge of the situation. cnn's dylan -- is here with that reporting. what can you tell us? zblr that's right, don. so facebook has reported more than 3,000 ads that were found that were russian bought seeking to medal in the election. what we learned tonight is a portion of those ads were targeted towards the states of michigan and wisconsin. thoughs were two states hillary clinton was beaten by a less than a margin of 1%. earlier we learned those ads reached about 1% of people. when you start breaking it down, the amount of people that could have been reached by these ads in michigan and wisconsin, it's
9:29 pm
a small number. but when you think about how usual those numbers were during the election, it begins to raise questions about the efficacy of these ads. >> so did the russians help in choosing where to target which states? >> this is a question by the special counsel as it continues its investigation into the russian meddling. if there was some level of collusion, some level of cooperation between the trump campaign and the russians, you have a bombshell. that is what we're waiting for, and we're waiting for more details from both sides. all the folks we've talked to on the hill say they need more time. we're still working on that. so hopefully more details in the weeks and months ahead. >> so talk to me about those ads. what kind of ads were used to go
9:30 pm
after these voters? >> well, specifically -- look, the russian bought ads across the board they tried to target, push the ads where they could drive a wedge whether that was on the question of race, immigration, refugees, lgbtq rights, gun rights. one thing we learns about the ads targeted towards wisconsin and michigan, there were certainly some ads that had to do with islam and basically tried to stoke anti-muslim sentiment among those voters in those two states. anything that could drive a wedge between americans, it appeared the russians were on top of that. >> thank you, dylan. and there are other new developments tonight on the russia investigation and facebook. here's cnn's chief national correspondent jim sciutto. jim. >> reporter: don, you might say
9:31 pm
the key force here is force multiplier as the military might say. 3,000 ads, $100,000 over two years, not a big bill for the kremlin. and yet we now know $10 million people saw these ads before the elegs. and remember these were very tight races particularly in those swing states. the question is how influential were these ads in the actual election results? tonight investigators are reviewing thousands of facebook ads as part of the russian probe of wide ranging social media campaign to influence the u.s. presidential election. an estimated 10 million people in the u.s., according to facebook, saw at least one of the 3,000 political ads bought by accounts linked to the kremlin. cost for that access, just $100,000 over the course of two years. and facebook's data suggests money bought russia influence
9:32 pm
well beyond all possible doubt the election and may continue to this day with more than half of the ads viewed after voters cast their ballots in november. they also used a facebook tool to send specific ads to voters who had visited those sights. this according to "the washington post" report citing sources familiar with the investigation. congress is now under pressure to release those ads to the public. will you release them publicly? >> we don't release documents provided to had velgive committee. >> tonight new details are emerging from another set of documents being reviewed by investigators. e-mails from former trump campaign chairman paul manafort appears to show manafort used his position to garner favor with -- who manafort was deeply
9:33 pm
indebted to. this according to excerpts released by the atlantic. just weeks after being hired by trump, manafort writes on april 11, 2016, quote, i assume you've shown my media coverage, right? he responds, quote, absolutely, every article. manafort then asks how do we use to get whole, has ovd operation scene. still, there's no evidence according to the atlantic that deripaska met manafort last year or was aware of manafort's attempts to reach him. these e-mails were under juteany as investigators continue to look into whether trump campaign had ties to russia. just last week the senate judiciary committee sent this letter to the cia, asking for quote, access to the same
9:34 pm
materials that have been made available to senate intelligence committee. senator diane feinstein the ranking member on the senate judiciary committee telling members, we were turned down. there's an ongoing debate between democrats and republicans whether to make these ads public. the chairman said today he would not make those public, though he did leave the door open for facebook to do so. the chairman saying he will let the public know what doors they have closed in this investigation and what doors are still open. don. >> jim sciutto, thank you very much. when we come back, much more on our exclusive russian-linked facebook ads that targeted michigan and wisconsin, two states key to trump's election victory.

and do your thing. our exclusive tonight sources telling cnn russian linked facebook ads target michigan and wisconsin, key states in donald trump's victory. want to bring in national security analyst skrulia cian
9:39 pm
and steve hall and also a former federal prosecutor. david, i want to start with you. cnn's exclusive reporting about these russian-linked facebook ads targeting specifically michigan and wisconsin. >> it tells me, one, the level of sofist kagphistication. it goes along with cnn's reporting from friday this group had targeted facebok users in mafrld, baltimore, and also missouri and now these battleground states of wisconsin and michigan. there's a sophistication where facebook users were being targeted geographically and also along these issue lines. in some places talking about contention issues related to police brutality and in some places sending out as cnn reported tonight,
9:40 pm
anti-muslim-type of ads or type of stories to potentially rile up people to feel like there's more discord, more dissension in the country than there was. it really tells me, ton and it puts a different spin on -- think about going back to the december transition, when president trump was saying there's basically nothing to see here, that russian interference in our election was speculation, that he was doubting some of the intelligence by our intelligence agencies, separate and apart from whether or not there was any collusion. we're not there yet with this. but the idea that this was being dismissed and now more and more evidence is sort of piling up based on this reporting. >> julia cian to you now. these were some of the most highly contested states in the election. do you think the russians new they would be such important states? >> yes. i think that they knew. and the question now is how did
9:41 pm
they know? did they have a sophisticated tracking system that was working or buying ads off of facebook to target these communities and if so that's the same coincidence of the trump administration. and so the convincequence just keeps piling on. so the resultimate question is were the russians guided by any aspects of the trump campaign, it's unknown now. but this is they're similar. but idea that russians were sort of fomenting distrust along racial, religious, economic lines, what that means it's that sense of unease or foment that led to trump's victory in those states because people went out to vote. so the idea is not upsetting
9:42 pm
people, but the idea that tension then led to greater voter turn out in two states where he did much better than anyone ever anticipated. so it was an election strategy, not just a pr strategy. and whether it was a coincidence that aligned with a trump strategy or was actually guided by the trump campaign is exactly the question, you know, we're all waiting to determine what the answer is. >> to steve hall now. steve, do you think these ads and this strategy employed by russia was meant only to influence the election, or could there be something more here? >> don, i'm not sure it's an either/or situation. i think it's actually a bit of both. there's little doubt vladimir putin when he saw candidate trump's positions visa vi russia said this is obviously a better candidate than hillary clinton.
9:43 pm
so i think the goal here was to increase the likelihood that donald trump would indeed be elected. there's other reasons as well. it's not just let's get donald trump elected. there is a much larger jeo political goal that vladimir putin has and that's not just dividing the united states, but drive wedges. and the best way to drive wedges is to find those delicate issues that really gets society going and sets them on edge. all of this is of course outrageous because it's foreign gum government, a hostile government insinuting into our process. the first iis they did the this influence propagation, and we bought it. the second and much darker option is they had inside help. did they have inside from the trump campaign saying, yes, this is where we need that help, you
9:44 pm
help us out? to be clear, we don't know yet. that's what guys like bob mueller are trying to find out. >> speaking of bob mueller, how will these ads play into robert mueller's investigation? >> well, as i've discussed multiple times on twitter and elsewhere, bob mueller has acquired a search warrant to get information off of facebook, which tells us he presented enough evidence to a federal judge that a crime was committed. in this case, a foreign illegal expenditure in connection with the election. and he also convinced that judge the evidence of that crime was on facebook. and i think the reporting from cnn is giving osglimpse into the work the russian government put to try to expend resources to influence his election. and really what we're seeing here, and i agree with the other folks who said it's not just an election strategy.
9:45 pm
this is an adversary of ours, a hostile government that's seeking to divide us. and they're pushing our buttons in an expert way to divide us on racial lines and religious lines and every way possible to try to pit us against each other because we're weaker when we are fighting against each other. and obviously it had an electoral component as well. but regardless of whether that electoral component was effective or not, whether it changed the election, it does not matter legally. what matters legally is foreigners are not supposed to be influencing our elections, period. that's a crime. that's against the law, and it's something we should be united against. >> julianne kayyem. politico is reporting that jared is ivanka are using -- shouldn't
9:46 pm
they know better to discontinue their use of private e-mail addresses? >> they should certainly know better, don. look, i did read that report earlier today. and i don't believe the report was saying there's any classified information in those e-mails. and so that would be a distinction between those e-mails and some of e-mails that were apparently found on hillary clinton's server we talked so much during the 2016 campaign. having said that, even if there was no classified information in those e-mail, government business of people employed at the white house which includes jared kushner and ivanka trump should be conducted on their government e-mail accounts. and if there's one lesson to be learned no matter what party you're in during the 2016 election, is that there's simply no room both in the perspective of the american electorate and
9:47 pm
how you might compromise sensitive government information for using private e-mail for conducting business at the white house level. >> all right, we're out of time. thank you all. i appreciate it. we're going to continue to honor the lives of those killed in las vegas. adrian murfitt had gone to vegas to surprise friends a guys weekend. adrian ended up dying in the lap of one of those friends. jack attended the concert with his wife. his son said jack died after stepping in front of his wife to shield her. calla was a waitress. this was the third year she'd attended the festival. her boss says she leaves a big hole for everyone who knew her. and 34-year-old jessica klymchuk leaves behind four children. mother and grandmother dana gardener is remembered for her
