consider her a person of interest, and we have been in contact with her, and we plan to engage her upon return to the country. >> do you have any idea how he was able to break through the windows? did he open the windows or smash through the windows? >> we believe he had a device similar to a hammer to smash the windows. [question off mic] >> well, obviously, we will do that. we will run it down to the very end. but right now at face value, we haven't been able to identify that. i believe that's accurate.
>> there will be hours and hours and hours of video surveillance that we have to recall with the cooperation of the mgm. [question off mic] >> well, i don't understand what you're alluding to how could it happen. this is an individual that was described as a lone wolf. i don't know how it could have been prevented if if we didn't have any prior knowledge to this individual. it wasn't evident he had any weapons in his room. we have determined that there are has been employees going to and from from his room and nothing nefarious was noticed. at this point, that's what we noticed now. >> can you describe how they were able to find the
suspect? >> yeah. so any special minute that take place in the southern nevada region, it's required by nrs to supply police officers to ensure security. the mandalay bay did a great job of hiring police officers. they had sufficient staffing for the concert. and when this individual decided to fire upon the crowd, which was approximately 22,000 individuals, it's very difficult to manage that size crowd, and ensure to have the proper staffing. as described, our officers responded immediately in conjunction with the fire department. as soon as the fire department arrived. but they were able to identify where the weapon was being discharged from in a proximity, it's hard to tell what floor it is from the outside. but once they gain entry into the hotel in conjunction with security and through phone calls with patrons, they were able to call it down to a possible floor.
once they made entry onto the hallway, they immediately knew what room was in question. >> reports about what exactly happened in the room when s.w.a.t. officers entered that maybe there was so much smoke from the shells the smoke alarms were going off. is there any truth to any of that? >> i don't know. i haven't been told of any smoke alarms. but he had killed himself at exactly -- well, we'll have to go through the body-worn camera and existing video whether we engaged him at the same approximate time or not. [question off mic] >> no, ma'am. i can't get into the mind of a psycho path at this point. >> how extensive is it and what are we talking about about las vegas being shut down while the ballistics do their work?
>> well, i believe we've got most of las vegas boulevard open and directly adjacent to the mandalay, still remains closed. we will ensure that we go out to the proper intersections to limit the hinderance of traffic. but we're looking at a minimum of 12 additional hours for documentation of the crime scene and removal of the bodies. >> do you know how long he was able to shoot for and if there was ever return fire from the officers on the ground in any way? >> no. i'm not aware of any return fire nor am i the timeline. but we did have s.w.a.t. officers discharge weapons at the room location. >> legal or illegally -- >> yes. the fbi and the etf is helping us with that aspect. >> were they all in the concert or were any --
>> i'm not sure because we had people that were deceased and injured outsides the vicinity of the concert area. so it would be hard to determine or make that determination at this point. we are obviously going to have to talk to all of those injured individuals to make that assessment. >> how many people were shot and how many were injured running away? >> no. ma'am. people have been displaced in five separate hospitals, so it's going to require an extensive review of that communication with them to determine that. so thank you very much. i appreciate everybody's time, and i appreciate everybody here to the back of me and their support of our police department. and we will keep you regularly updated. i can't give you an exact timeline at this point, but we will keep you informed as we receive information. have a great day. thank you. . neil: all right. you have been listening to authorities of the scene give us an update of what is officially the deadliest shooting in american history.
at least 58 dead, 515 injured. no indication as to how many of those injuries are life-threatening, but you can imagine many. there's no connection to isis or terror, even though isis is online now saying that it is taking a bow for this tragic act. again, authorities say it has nothing to do with it. meanwhile, president trump has plans to visit las vegas on wednesday, a day after visiting puerto rico. that, of course, is planned for tomorrow. here's what we know about the shooter. 64-year-old suspect steven paddock killed himself and was surrounded by pretty serious weaponry, which was a shock to his brother and people who knew him. ten rifles found inside his hotel room, had bordered himself inside there since last thursday. so he was meticulously planning this attack, we're told. broke the window the night of the attack to pursue the shooting. hillary vaughan now in las vegas with the very latest on
all of these fast-changing developments. >> neil, if there's one plea from the officials that we just heard at this press conference is that they need blood because there are over 500 wounded victims in five different hospitals throughout the vegas area that are getting treated for bullet wounds and other injuries. and so they're asking the community to donate blood because they need that to help these people and get them back together again. the clark county district attorney called the shooter a weapon and man of mass destruction. but his family had no idea that he was capable of this in an interview, his brother said that he was just a normal guy that would drive to vegas to gamble and ate burritos. here's what else he had to say about if he possibly could have done this. >> find out who he got the machine guns from. where the hell did he get the
machine guns? i mean, he had -- you'll find out. he had a couple of guns, but they were all handgun, legal -- i mean, he might have had one long gun, but he had them in a safe. there's no -- he had -- i mean, he had no machine guns. i moved his house. i mean, there were no machine guns. >> i talked to a victim that i saw walking down this road wearing an american flag t-shirt with blood on it, and i asked him were you at the concert last night? and he said, yes, but she explained she heard the gunshots, she is in a restroom, she wasn't around him. once the shots started going off and then she looked for cover and saw a man with a bullet wound in his leg, she took off her tank top and used that to help stop some of the blood, but she says it was several hours before she was able to even get in contact with her husband. she didn't have her cell phone or her belongings, and she
found that american flag shirt with blood on it and put it on because she had nothing else to wear, neil. but the mgm is also responding to the tragedy in a statement saying that they are saddened by what has happened. saying our hearts and prayers go out to the victims of last night's shooting. their families and those still fighting for their lives, we're working with law enforcement and will continue to do all we can to help those involved. the mandalay bay hotel has opened so people are able to get back into their rooms and get their belongings for those that were staying there, neil n. neil: all right. thank you very much, hillary vaughan. just update you on the president, and his plans, he did make an announcement a little over an hour ago saying it was an act of pure evil. that our unity cannot be shattered, and all flags flown at half staff in memory of the victims. member of secret service dan on this. i want ask you how meticulous of a plan was this on the part of one guy? how do you make of that, and
he arrived last thursday, so he had a number of days to prepare and not draw any attention to himself. what do you think? >> yeah. based on the early reports what we know from the press. here are a couple of things that indicate a very high level of planning. obviously, we have the early check in date, which says to me he did some scouting on the line of sight. meaning the location he was going to shoot and was it going to be clear? was he going to have a clear path down into his target zone? secondly, you have this camera setup that has been discussed where he had cameras set up outside the room to detect the presence of law enforcement. also number three here, that kind of ammunition, the volume, neil, of ammunition we're talking about is extensive. to kill or injure 50 plus and then injure 200 plus, we're talking about probably close to 500 shots. neil, 500 rounds of ammunition, do you have any idea how heavy that is? that's just not the kind of thing you take up to a room in a bag.
you might have to get a roller and even then, it's still pretty heavy to move around. neil: or make multiple trips. one thing was the possibility that he could have drawn attention just by breaking the window. we don't know when he broke the window at first. there was sophistication that he was on a balcony, mandalay bay doesn't have such things, of course. so he was shooting from the 32nd floor. and then began the shooting. that normally would have drawn some attention, unless all the noise, it didn't. what do you think? >> yeah. i mean, las vegas is a very loud place. and when you think about it, and you see the video of the shooting, forget about the glass breaking for a minute. it took a couple seconds for people to respond to the actual gunfire. so, you know, neil, if this happened in, you know, some quiet town in new mexico, yeah, glass breaking in a hotel may have been a bigger deal. but given the volume of noise in las vegas ordinarily, it doesn't surprise me that glass
breaking would elicit a lot of attention. neil: well, cameras are everywhere in vegas, they're everywhere plus. so, obviously, we're going to be able to reconstruct, you know, what paddock was doing and when he was doing it, almost to the second through those few days. what would you be looking for as you hunt around not only cameras of mandalay bay but on the street, on the strip, outside, inside, what? >> yeah. that's a great point you made about the surveillance systems. i have a lot of friends involved in security in the casino business, and they have the best camera systems in the world. neil, to be quite candid, some places better than u.s. government entities i've worked with. they have to be able to zoom in on actual hands in a card game. so these are extensive cameras. what are you looking for? you're looking at the in and out times. when was he doing? was it corresponding to anything going on outside? very important. is he there with any associates? if he was, you have to get an
id on these people. who are these people? you're also looking for what was he bringing in? large boxes, garment bags, suitcases? how did he disguise getting all of these weapons in. did he dismantle them first and put them in smaller suitcases? these are all going to lead up to the motivate and right now the motivate is the critical question. neil: you're a former secret service agent. you have guarded presidents. you know when things are at a national security level, and you know what's going to be repeated now, concerns that others can get ideas from something like this. warn or advise the president or anyone what to do now going forward. what do you think happens? >> yeah. neil, what's really been concerning me since i saw this story is we haven't seen a sniper-type shooting of this -- obviously, in american history based on the victims of this level of tragedy. the problem with this is when you shoot from an elevation, everything we've been taught about mass shootings goes away. you know, duck and
cover, get on the ground. well, sadly, neil, none of that applies from an elevation. remember, in a shooting on the ground level, the bullets coming parallel. therefore if you get behind a car, it will hit that first. coming from an angle, covering doesn't work. so my fear is that, yes, this may inspire some copycat-style attacks, and it is incredibly difficult. it is really a nightmare scenario for law enforcement to be engaged from an elevation like that with automatic weapons. in my experience, a single person tactical assault, there's nothing worse than an elevated attack with an automatic weapon. it doesn't get any worse than that. neil: dan, thank you very, very much. to dan's point, the former fbi investigator, bill, something like this reminds you that you don't have to be the world's best marksman to do a lot of damage and kill and injure a lot of people when you're shooting from above and have powerful weaponry to do it, do you? >> not at all, neil. the whole angle of attack as dan was talking about, the
fact that he was indiscriminate, shooting across large amounts of people through the crowd, certainly that person to be able to kill many more people. so it's really this tragedy is just now the effects are unfolding. the loved ones and the people who were injured and their lives will be changed forever is just starting today. very sad. neil: it is. now we're told, as well, that he was not known. that is, that it was not known to law enforcement, at least las vegas and nevada-area law enforcement process. there have been conflictive reports of that. we might find in other locales whether in nevada, 90 miles west of vegas. but what do you make of that in that there was nothing to telegraph. >> neil, it is unfortunate. we have seen it in some other cases where you need to call down and break through these kind of unpeel than yon, if
you will, and see what was behind him. what was motivating him, people he had contact with, did he telegraph it in any way? sometimes not as overt as we've seen and other cases where people leave messages or they say things that they're on a phone call to police, as we saw in the orlando shooting. but this will come out. i know that we will find out. we're all struggling with that right now to find out why someone would commit something like this. it will take police and fbi a while because they need to go through all of his electronic devices, talk to neighbors, talk to friends. and other people may have come across him, even people in hotel who now realize later on that maybe what he said or his demeanor was indicative of something. but it will take a while, and i'm sure we will know on the next few days. . neil: all right. given the fact that 58 known dead, over 500 who were injured, that's a lot of people, and he was using a lot of weapons, for as
long as 12 minutes. given the sheer numbers involved. what do you, as an investigator, need to construct? >> well, first of all, neil, you're going to want to know how he did bring this weapons in. i mean, it could be the fact that he was there for several days, he made several trips to his car, he may have come in, you know, with a golf bag, people weren't paying attention to that. go upstairs, you bring in things incrementally. so those are the types of things we want to understand. certainly be helpful to security going forward at hotels and major centers where people have this kind of porous environment. if you think of it, and we often tell our clients when you're staying in a hotel room, sometimes it's released to the public street. you don't think of it that way. but with people coming in and going from these large hotels and resorts, there's no perimeter. people come up to your door.
so they need to look at that as they look towards security going forward. and not just this hotel mandalay bay but more before you hadly what can be done, what behaviors, what protocols can we put in place to perhaps limit or mitigate if this event were to happen again. neil: thank you. former fbi investigator. again, just to remind you what bill was chatting about here as well. isis had tried to cease on this and claim responsibility for these attacks. there doesn't appear to be any such links, except for the affixation of wanting to take a bow for this. no indication to authorities that they had anything to do with it. just one, lone, angry man. after this think your large cap equity fund
. neil: all right. this is the view of the 32nd floor that the shooter had, using these two windows. they're sealed windows and then shattered them. we don't know which came first. it looks like he had access to a suite of some sort. but you can get a sense from that perch that he did a lot of damage. and it's making people think twice and resatisfying looking up when they're down. it changes your perspective a little bit. so quite properly in any city
now, people are getting nervous. so what to do about that. the psychotherapist. doctor, we were talking about that. people are going to be looking up, they're going to be a little concerned. older hotels that have windows that you can manipulate. forget about breaking the glass. so it's a whole new fear for people. what do you tell them? >> it is and so it kind of breaks the denial that we're safe and right but when's incident like this happens, we have to learn quickly. and so if we can basically communicate to people that we're learning from these situations, which may be an anomaly, how to protect our people better, that certainly helps. does it help us to feel safe? no. because maybe that's not entirely appropriate. we have to be aware. we have to know where exits are. we have to do our best to live our lives. but we also want to make sure that we're learning that hotels maybe can ensure the
safety by looking at luggage. the best way to proceed. . neil: now check into a hotel and all of the others come with that and how this guy got all of that weaponry up there. certainly couldn't have made it in one trip. but he was there since last thursday. so you're examining this. what are you looking at? >> so we have to look at this man's history. how did it go undetected? what was it about this man that -- how does he become so dangerous and undetected? we can learn things in hindsight that can help us as we move forward. there are at these going to be these anomalies. so all we can do is live our lives; right? we have to live our lives purposefully because you don't want to be paralyzed by fear. . neil: but i bet you there's not a person walking through somewhere there's a great
concentration of buildings that's not looking up. >> well, that's going to happen because we want to protect ourselves. so i say do whatever you need to do to protect yourself. but also live with purpose. and if you can be part of the solution, that can help tremendously, dealing with the personal anxieties that do come up after instances like this. neil: well, i get e-mails you're giving nutcases ideas. i don't think i've started it. but given a development like this, people are obviously going to say gee. all of this time. people have been ramming into people on the street. or something to inflict a great deal of damage and then long comes this guy who does this from above. >> right. and it's realistic concern because what we know about violence is that it can spread and catch. people can see things and get ideas. there is truth to that. so how do you handle these stories responsibly so that you're not giving ideas, you're reporting what actually happens without some person
who's disgruntled, envious, angry, getting an idea of how to harm innocent people. neil: now, they so happen to be at a concert, you know? it was in his third day. it might have something to do with that large crowd outside. it might have nothing to do with it. he might have planned this just taking shots at people such as people gathering along the strip, and there were at these a lot of people in that neck of the woods. so average people you talk to, doctor, are going to be increasingly concerned about crowds, about being outside, what do you tell them? >> well, if someone is debilitated by fear, i say you need to protect yourself. if you really feel afraid to go to a concert, and you're going to lose sleep over it, give yourself permission to give yourself a pass. but in general, i advise my patients to live their lives and figure out how to live as safe as possible under the circumstances. we do have to live our lives, and this doesn't happen all
the time. it seems like we're more vulnerable than we actually are because there's a randomness to it; right? so statistically, it's rare that this will happen. but because it's so random, people do get frightened. but that's what i advise my patients. if you really feel frightened, give yourself a one-off path. but usually after events like this, we learn a lot, and people are safer after instances like this because the police are more aware, people are more aware where these concerts take place are more aware. so in some cases, it is safer after these kinds of instances. . neil: yeah, doctor, good words of advice. just try to stay calm. >> yeah. calm, purposeful, soothe yourself, and move forward with purpose. neil: all right. thank you very much, doctor. good to see you. the president is hosting the leader today, no stranger to terror incidents. per capita basis, one of the most attacked places on
earth. in fact, this guy came to leader, if you will, responding to the prior's government inability to deal with all of that. and some say he swapped a violent overthrow for what had been violence in his country. we're exploring that ironically on a day violence came to the united states homegrown. we'll have more after this prudential asked these couples: how much money do you think you'll need in retirement? then we found out how many years that money would last them. how long do you think we'll keep -- oooooohhh! you stopped! you're gonna leave me back here at year 9? how did this happen? it turned out, a lot of people fell short, of even the average length of retirement. we have to think about not when we expect to live to, but when we could live to. let's plan for income that lasts all our years in retirement. prudential. bring your challenges.

course, we had the paris attack, the pulse nightclub attack in orlando, florida, and the manchester bombing that was after an ar an an arianna grande concert. in 2015, killed concert goers and coordinated attacks in that city. the place where there were the most casualties. three armed men opened fire into an eagles of death metal concert and the crowd initially took those noises as pyrotechnics. took a large group of concert goers hostage. two of the gunmen killed themselves. the later was killed by police. but the incident was the deadliest concert shooting at that point. and there was citywide casualties were 130. now, less than a year later, june 2016, a gunman opened fire around 2:00 a.m. in a
nightclub called pulse in orlando, florida. the shooter who was later identified as a 29-year-old omar mateen was shot and killed by police after a three-hour standoff. 11 months later, isis claimed responsibility for an attack that killed primarily young girls and their parents at a arianna grande concert. killing 22 people, injuring numerous others. arianna grande did go back to paris and gave a concert for the victims of their families. most of those concert-going tragedies were caused by crowd control failures or pyrotechnics gone wrong. i'm sure it doesn't make it easier for families who lost loved ones but from a social or political perspective, may be an accident field differently to them than murder. as you said, neil, it is a sad list. back to you.
neil: unfortunately, when you lose a loved one, you lose a loved one. you go through that later on, but they're gone. deirdre bolton, thank you very, very much. by the way, russian vladimir putin has sent a telegram with condolences to president trump over the shooting. we have others from london mayor tweeting his condolences to all of las vegas. other foreign press reporting, depending on the english version you were getting, we are with you, las vegas. we are with you, nevada. we are with you, america. stand strong. we know of what you experience. we'll have more after this today, we're out here with some big news about type 2 diabetes. you have type 2 diabetes, right? yes. so let me ask you this... how does diabetes affect your heart? it doesn't, does it? actually, it does. type 2 diabetes can make you twice as likely to die from a cardiovascular event, like a heart attack or stroke. and with heart disease,
your risk is even higher. you didn't know that. no. yeah. but, wait, there's good news for adults who have type 2 diabetes and heart disease. jardiance is the only type 2 diabetes pill with a lifesaving cardiovascular benefit. jardiance is proven to both significantly reduce the chance of dying from a cardiovascular event in adults who have type 2 diabetes and heart disease and lower your a1c. jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration. this may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, or lightheaded, or weak upon standing. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, tiredness, and trouble breathing. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of ketoacidosis or an allergic reaction. symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, swelling, and difficulty breathing or swallowing. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. other side effects are sudden kidney problems, genital yeast infections, increased bad cholesterol, and urinary tract infections, which may be serious. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take
markets are not persuaded by this. a lot of this could be built on tax reform and optimism that in one way, shape, or form we're going to get it. what sectors would benefit in that case. it is remarkable that that is trumping any of these other fears. i guess if we had actual terror, proof of terror, that would be another thing. but it's remarkable. >> yeah. i have trouble saying anything that doesn't sound incentive, but it appears that the market has grown almost to these horrible acts. wall street isn't worried about this. neil: and one thing, it's just my opinion, bad guys sole killers or groups see something like this, it must be discouraging after the fact because the markets move on and see the long-term good. but what is going on with the tax take here?
because depending on who you talk to and, of course, newspaper had some doubts about everything coming along the way the president wants, what's driving it? >> sure. well, first of all, i see it as three stages. so trump is elected. we expect tax reform, a little bit of that gets built into the market. so now the market discounts that. that comes into the market. should our government actually get it together to do something and pass a plan, then you would see the third jump. so we're sort of on the second jump here and what you're seeing is those areas of the market that would benefit the most are rising. so small caps have been on the tear. the smaller companies don't have anywhere to hide their money, so they're paying closer to the 35% -- neil: and a lot of them are in the pass through category. so if they get the cut to 25%, it's going to help them immeasurably. >> and i want to throw in on the broader markets, so we looked at numbers from rbc capital, the average amount that companies pay is 27%.
drop that down to 20, and that would put earnings on the s&p 500, which could add 200 points. that doesn't sound like a lot, but that's equivalent to about 2,000 points on the dow. neil: you mention the third possibility of a third fact that that could give stocks a kick. what is that third thing doesn't kick in until next year? >> well, then you think maybe you see a pull back, at least on that part of things. but that said, that's not the only thing driving the markets higher right now. earnings are up about 10% this year. and remember for the first time in this entire market, we've got now a global tail end; right? it used to be that the u.s. market was the only one really going north. now we're actually lagging european -- if you look at the worldwide msci index, that's up more than 18% this year. we're up about 13%. so we're selling more stuff overseas, the falling dollar helps, and there's a lot of tailwinds right now. neil: what do the folks see about this tax cut? how much of it goes through?
how much of it is dramatically revamped? >> it's so hard to handicap this thing, neil. but i guess if you want to think about it in terms of who are the stakeholders who stand to benefit the most? and i think with the corporate tax cut, really democrats and republicans agree something needs to happen there. everybody has their ox that's going to get gored. so that's easier than personal tax cuts. neil: but not down to 20%. democrats bicker going down that much; right? >> yeah. there's a lot of inertia here. so the reality of 27% anyway, maybe a compromise on 22%, and that would be healthy. neil: still a lot lower. but you're right to mention the prevailing is 27. not 35. if you don't mind, though, on this tragedy and the market's reaction and holding up through this. some groups, the casino and hotel-related stocks get hit with something like this, but not the whole market. is it to your point earlier
that we get used to this or that it's just part of our lives now? >> well, to that extent -- right. the market is smarter than you and i individually; right? so it discounts the fact that these things do happen. so it's built in. it's hard to say beyond that. and, of course, you see individual sectors. you see gun stocks rallying. i assume on the assumption that this could drive regulations, so people will buy guns in the near term. and then, of course, travel stocks get hit. but they tend to bounce back; right? i would never say use this as a buying opportunity. but the reality is -- neil: every incident like this, and i'm not likening this to paris or belgium or france. but this is how it plays out. >> yeah. neil: it's interesting. thank you very, very much, my friend. and, again, to this point here, i want to show you something that does, you know, show you a little bit of confidence in the human spirit. you are looking at a bloodline. a blood bank line in las vegas. it's five-hours long.
and, again, i hasten to add this is republicans and democrats, conservatives and liberals. all types of folks interested in providing blood for people who desperately need it. they heard the call. they're responding to the call. they'll wait hours in line to make sure they do that. it's one thing about giving their attention and thoughts and prayers. these folks are literally giving their blood. so in the middle of a tragedy, an uplifting reminder that at our core, we're not all that bad. we'll have more after this retirement squirrel from voya. i represent the money you save for the future. who's he? he's the green money you can spend now. what's up? gonna pay some bills, maybe buy a new tennis racket. he's got a killer backhand. when it's time to get organized for retirement, it's time to get voya. ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ well i'm gone

. neil: all right. president trump already spoke to the nation about this shooting in las vegas. he plans to visit las vegas on wednesday. adam shapiro live from the white house right now. hey, adam. >> hey, neil. and, of course, the president when he spoke to the nation talked about our shared values in faith, family, as well as the bonds which unite us. and he called upon americans to rely on those bonds to help get through this tragedy in las vegas. here's what the president said. >> our unity cannot be shattered by evil. our bonds cannot be broken by violence. and, though, we feel such great anger at our fellow citizens, it is our love that
defines us today. and always will forever. >> and, neil, the president did call this act in las vegas an act of pure evil. he has ordered that the flag be thrown at half staff here at the white house and the executive office building, they are flying it at half staff. as you said, he will go to las vegas on wednesday. but he's going to go to puerto rico tomorrow, he's going to meet with the governor of puerto rico as well as those who have been devastated by the hurricane. so the president is still at work here at the white house. but he is planning what you might call a healing tour not only to puerto rico but also to las vegas. back to you. neil: all right. thank you, adam. very, very much. we have charlie gasparino here on how the president is doing on both those counts. he is the healer in chief in this case. >> appropriate remarks. well delivered. you know, two different tragic situations,
obviously. you know, it's kind of interesting. last guest you were talking about why the markets become, you know, they brush these things off. tragically. you have to delineate between terrorist attacks that have real impact on the economy. like, 9/11 had a direct impact to the economy. the markets were shut down. businesses, stocks didn't trade for, like, what? a week on the new york stock exchange and, in particular, i think other exchanges had an impact as well. this, they brush it off. this is a horrible, tragic. but that's how the markets ar a. neil: would it have been different if it was isis inspired? would it change a little bit? >> i don't think so. i think it has to have an economic impact because -- neil: sadly, we're used to it. >> terrorism is so commonplace, you know, the markets sniff out the exact impact of it. now, the puerto rico thing is interesting because the
president has come under heat respondent responding fast enough. we should be clear what we're dealing with here in puerto rico. and i'm not saying everything he has done is right. neil: speaking of the president, here is a meeting we're getting straight from the room with the leader of thailand, a country who has had its own number of terror incidents. trump: we're going to be seeing all of the first responders, the military, fem fema, and frankly, most importantly, we're going to be seeing the people of puerto rico. we've been very -- i mean, i think we've been -- it's been amazing what has been done in a very short period of time in puerto rico. there's never been a piece of land that we've known that was so devastated. the bridges were down, the telecommunications was nonexistent, and it's in very, very bad shape. the electrical grid, as you know, has been totally destroyed. but we've gotten tremendous amounts of food and water and lots of other things, supplies, generally speaking on the island.
so we're going to be going tomorrow morning first thing very early. we're also going to be meeting with governor matt of the u.s. virgin islands. he's going to probably because of the difficulty in getting into the virgin islands, he's probably going to meet us in puerto rico. and then very importantly also, on wednesday morning very early, we're going to be leaving for las vegas where we're going to be seeing the governor, who i just spoke to. the mayor, governor of the state, the mayor of las vegas, who i just spoke to, the sheriff, who has done such a great job. the police department has done such a fantastic job in terms of the speed, and we all very much appreciate it. so we'll be going to puerto rico tomorrow. and on wednesday, we will be going to, as you know, as i just said, we'll be going to las vegas on a very, very sad -- it's a very sad moment for me, for everybody. for everybody, no matter where you are. no matter what your thought process, this is a very, very
sad day. so we're going to be doing that on wednesday. and we'll be spending the full day there and maybe longer than that. so thank you very much, everybody. appreciate it. thank you very much. thank you. . neil: all right. i always wait to see if possibly something is going to be added there. i can't resist the temptation to add something, but he's going to puerto rico tomorrow. he will be in las vegas on wednesday. how is he handling these twin -- very different events, to your point. >> i mean, very good in vegas. he has come under a lot of unfair criticism, i think, on puerto rico. if you know something about the economy of the island, i've been covering puerto rico from a financial standpoint for a long time. i used to cover specifically municipal bonds. neil: they're in bankruptcy; right? >> and i think that's one of
the problems. one of the problems puerto rico has -- again, the president should have lifted the jones act allowing shipping not just the u.s. but. there's a few other things. fema is not totally prepared. fema on the ground is not totally prepared but none of this stuff is easy. we have to point out. this is not a science. this is an art form to dealing with these things. but one of the problems he faces, anybody faces in puerto rico is the fact that it is in bankruptcy, it has issued something like $200 billion. it's heavily in debted. i don't want to misstate the number. and at the same time, it has lousy transportation infrastructure. it wasted so much of that money. it has a monopoly electric power system that, you know, doesn't work very well. i mean, this is a place that if you want an example of government mismanagement, of finances and how it hurts, you know, when something like this happens, you've got it right here. now, we should point out there's other examples of this.
new orleans wasted a lot of money, particularly on with municipal bonds on building casinos where their levy authorities were building casinos instead of fixing the levies. this happens a lot. this is one of the problems that he faces in puerto rico. . neil: well, he has the san juan mayor not a fan, the governor who is, so they're in the middle of that. we'll see what happens. >> it's unfair. neil: sometimes it gets to be a bit much. all right. in the meantime, we're going to have the latest update on this shooting right now. 58 known dead. better than 500 injured. we don't know the extent of those injuries. just that they're bad, and this is already when it comes to mass shootings and carnage in this country, sadly a record. we'll have more. you? well, because it tells us something powerful about progress: that whether times are good or bad, people and their ideas will continue to move the world forward.
as long as they have someone to believe in them. citi financed the transatlantic cable that connected continents. and the panama canal, that made our world a smaller place. we backed the marshall plan that helped europe regain its strength. and pioneered the atm, for cash, anytime. for over two centuries we've supported dreams like these. and the people and companies behind them. so why should that matter to you? because, today, we are still helping progress makers turn their ideas into reality. and the next great idea could be yours. .. [fbi agent] you're a brave man, mr. stevens.
neil: albright, the latest on what is happening right now. neil cavuto here, coast-to-coast pier 58 are dead, better than 500, 150 -- we don't know the extent of those injuries. we do no matter how you slice it and connell mcshane will explain, it is the deadliest shooting, the deadliest incident on american soil ever. >> bier lando nightclub shooting were 49 people were killed and there's still a lot we don't know including motive, which is what everybody keeps asking about being those are the
numbers we have with the suspect identified. 64 real gun and through two windows on the 302nd floor of the mandalay bay hotel in las vegas and was doing so late last night. he was shooting down at these concertgoers who were essentially sitting ducks just listening to the country star jason aldean performing at the outdoor music festival. stephen paddock is the guy's name. police say he killed himself right before they got in his hotel room, breaking in from mesquite, nevada is the brother in florida. the brother was interviewed earlier today, but unfortunately did not do a lot to fill in many thanks for. listen. >> i don't think there's anything i can say. how do you -- i mean, my brother did this. this is like it was done, like
he shot us. if he had killed my kids i couldn't be more dumbfounded. connell: dumbfounded as the word he uses there. local authorities when they held their briefing last hour said they looked at all the databases. this guy was not known to local law enforcement. didn't show up in any databases. they also said the female companion this morning they were looking for common turns out she apparently wasn't with him last night pages out of the country. to get back to the motive, we just don't know when yet. the fbi did race onto a question that was asked and had been asked about an ice's claim of responsibility that had been circulating online and other places in the fbi officials say there is no connection made me look to an international terrorist group had been established. that is where we are right now. neil: connell, thank you very much. connell mcshane.
we should be getting more updated figures that so many have asked about the status of those 500 plus injured victims here, more severe than others. in the meantime, the warning signs that are missed. a lot of people trying to put together information about this guy who knew about him, what him, what he was thinking, whether he was talking to anyone about this planned attack. were some of those warning signs missed? what is the first thing you want to start pursuing here? >> now that they've executed a search warrant and went to look at his computers, laptop and known. i want to see who he called, when he called them, how when you sit on the phone. i want to see the websites you visited. all the recent communications will be vital. this is a later investigation. your two crime scenes. where the shooter was inside mandalay bay and then the actual concert area. they have so many people they
have to interview to collect information on the last part of that will calm when they start interviewing neighbors, friends, where he went to a gun range, the said. neil: things he wouldn't have to necessarily be a sharpshooter or even a great shot to be effective at this peer >> he would not to be a great shot. he would be smart enough to know the weapons to choose from the ammunition -- neil: this is the third day of this country concert. he arrived last thursday. we don't know how long it took him to get the weaponry out there. he was patient, took his time. >> well-planned. no question about it. when he checked in, he had to ask for a room that was overlooking the concert area. so he select the room exactly where he wanted it. he wanted it on the certain floor with the trajectory of shooting down. neil: this concert venue in the
20,000 they are attracted more than 40,000. but that was by design. >> no question about that. he was looking for maximum impact and that's what he thought. kudos to las vegas pd. if they didn't respond as expeditiously there would be a lot more. neil: do we know how long the whole thing lasted? the weapon he had did a lot of damage. obviously he did. what else do you look for their obvious insecurity for their obviously and security cams and the vegas area, they are everywhere and they will record everything. >> there were is a two-part component about. it is where he went and they have artificial intelligence built into those cameras of the facial recognition and things of that nature from things he met with, what he was driving, where he came from. and then you have the interior views come inside as we all know in a casino. so they are going to track him,
his movements, where he went again. did he meet with anybody? part of this hotel is connected to the mall. the point of access are considerable. they'll have to look at using technology to see exactly where he started and possibly if he had met with anybody else. neil: at the very least we will see where he was on the floor. the cameras on the floor, when he left his room, and then reappeared what else do you look for besides meeting with people and what if all this proves everything he did he get along? >> next thing we look for is how we got the weapons out there. it's going to be broken down considerably. how many trips to the makeup there? they will start interviewing housekeepers. neil: we covered the vegas debate from the presidential debate and a lot of our cameras bring up lots of stuff and all
sorts of boxes and they have these large dollies kind of back-and-forth. you don't even think twice about it. maybe now people will. but it wouldn't draw suspicion or would it? >> it would draw suspicion. you try to stay there as long as possible. the balances security and customer service. now maybe this will change that. there will be a different communication and conversation about it now. maybe they will consider starting to screen bags at hotels. i don't know. for today, for this particular incident that would cause suspicion whatsoever. trading to do now, i'm sure there's a lot of security officials throughout the country, especially in urban areas, maybe even in times square and now tourists and people down below looking up. how to stop them from doing that? >> you don't. that's part of the admission of someone like defending a macro message. he wasn't targeting one person. he targeted an event. he wants than a macro message and that's what he did.
i don't think you'll stop people from a certain degree of trepidation on what they will attend are looking up in the air. he changed a lot of a lot of communications with this incident. neil: do you think is change you think is change the hotels and use magnetometers now for luggage and all that? >> it is a business call. that is a huge fixed capital costs and how many people are really going to spend the money because of the incident. we'll have to see how it shakes out. neil: paul, very good being year. on this type of the event -- thank you very much. police commission commissioner will be joining us next. times square earlier today, a lot of people looking up and wondering, what do we do with something like that happens? it is human nature i guess. a police official on what we do to combat our utmost years. after this.

that's how you outmaneuver. neil: all right. times square a lot of folks are now doubt looking out more than they normally would. first time in the city it is captivating and it is jaw-dropping. and nowadays here in cities like new york where there's a lot of tall buildings with combined space but anywhere in the
country. how do you protect the so-called soft targets? former n.y.p.d. commissioner joining us on the phone. thanks for taking the time. i guess it shouldn't be surprising people this immediate reaction in las vegas and may think what do i do now? would you tell them? >> first you tell them that the probability of being in a situation is very low. that being said, it's a tragic day for our country or the proliferation of guns in this country is something we really have to take a look at because unless you make every building a fortress and that is not something that's going to happen, we have to look at other solutions. we have to look at police doing much more surfing of social media. we have to figure out a way that people with weapons are responsible for them. not saying they shouldn't have been because what we need to do
is have a registration. we have to have safety checks chair of weapons because the majority of weapons that end up in these situations injured that an individual, several handguns and he asked to be on someone's radar. neil: there's so much we don't know about stephen paddock, the person that took himself out of the same before authorities could have. a few investigating missing you were there and you have all the surveillance and other footage, what are you looking for? >> we are looking for anything he was involved in here to send media is reporting he was in love with some kind of incident or lawsuit with the hotel. others we've been looking at is any kind of mental treatment, any kind of posting on social media press interviewing his neighbors, relatives, all his
associates. you might have a complete picture of this individual's total background. neil: i was noticing this was in the third day of the route 91 music festival. he had a room that oversaw the area they were congregating from 20,000 to 40,000 people to get crowds come even on the strip itself. so he had arrived last thursday. the next day was day one and day two. he was patient and i am wondering whether he got all that weaponry up to one so i did it in stages. what was the plotting here? i know we know the end result. what do we look forward to reconstruct this? >> we have to see what the household personnel in the hotel no more thought. unfortunately i think if you put
a survey sign outside your door in the hotel, and they will go on to the next room. having been at mandalay bay and other hotels in vegas many times, you could rule in three -- [inaudible] the only ascii workgroup member goes through. neil: you are right about that. much has been made. they didn't have such been through the windows we are showing here shattered on the 302nd floor -- 32nd floor. that might have set off alarms in the hotel. the smoke and fire lines, but the constant use of weaponry he was using. it doesn't take long to do a lot of damage. >> no. somebody estimated he was firing 10 shots per second. that could either be an automatic weapon or
semiautomatic assault weapon with these cranks you can buy on the internet that just make a semi automatic, fire like an automatic. it really gets back to this country has got to take a look at how it regulates the weapons, specially the western city of huge capacity to fire this amount. when you think about it from the 30 -- 32nd floor, you will kill hundreds like he did. it is not popular, but i believe the number one civil right is to be free from harm. if we let people -- the truth is you can walk in to nevada or some parts of virginia and you can buy 10, 20, 30 weapons at a time. neil: lastly, when john kennedy was killed by a sniper in a
building, they changed the way presidents would visit cities. they are secretive and common a lot of times outside structures they had, are we going to be looking at something like that on a larger scale for people either attending an event, an outdoor concert. this could go to extremes, couldn't it? >> it could. i traveled in the middle east and many have metal tours. they look to your luggage because of the potential for violence they are. i hope we never get to that point, but one of the things we have to look at his technology. there is technology that can be based on protection. but there are more weapons in this country than there are people. i'm calling you from ireland right now.
nobody surprised in these kinds of things happen outside of the united states. neil: someone said when good people have those weapons -- [inaudible] commissioner thank you very, very much. >> thank you. neil: donald trump responding to an active secure evil. he plans to visit on wednesday, went on to say united states flag should be fun at half staff and utter unity cannot be shattered. we will have more after this. ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ well i'm gone
>> in moments of tragedy and horror, america comes together as one and it always has. we call upon the bonds that unite us, our faith, our family and our shared values. neil: all right, the president indicating he will be visiting las vegas on may. he's in puerto rico tomorrow. already tweeting condolences to las vegas. and vladimir putin of russia was condolences to president trump in all las vegas. "washtington examiner", this is a role that is in the constitution for the president, but he becomes the healer in
chief. how is the president doing? >> well, i think his remarks earlier today were a wonderful thing to hear from him. they were very unifying that this is nothing but pure evil, that the shooter acted on in las vegas and that he is looking forward to traveling there to be with the big items of this tragic event and to meet with local officials to try and learn more about motive. i think it's important that he organized a scheduled to speak to head down there to head down and spend time with these people and bring unity and introduced out. it is difficult to imagine what is going on in the president's mind right now and the way he's dealing not only with the shooting in las vegas but a trip to puerto rico tomorrow, still dealing with the disaster relief in florida and texas. he's really a difficult point in his presidency and that message of unity as one unit to continue to emphasize that the deals with all of these tragedies.
neil: and sometimes the tragedies don't make it any easier. the political environment in which we live, today hillary clinton called for gun control and now more than ever we need it. elizabeth warren, thoughts and prayers are simply not enough. we know what happens here. a lot of people back and forth will question how this guy got as many guns as he did get its a valid debate, but it isn't going to bring a lot of these people back. the president lands in the middle of that. >> he does land in the middle. it's a valid debate to have certainly, but one that should also wait to take place for at least a couple days after something like this unfolds. this is a moment where americans should really pause and pray for and think carefully about what an event like this in their own community would look like and people who lost daughters, brothers, sisters, has been, wives in las vegas and to really
begin invoking politics and talking about gun control in whether we need more restrictive laws. i don't think that's an appropriate time for this to be happening and i would hope that not only hillary clinton and other democratic and republican leaders that the president himself would avoid getting into that debate for at least some time. neil: in the meantime i'm wondering how the president addresses the fears that are rampant out there. a lot of people look at these incidents abroad and sad just over the weekend stating that his, not us and something horrific as this occurs on a large scale. the president has to position himself as the leaders saying you go about your business and try to leave your lives here but that's a lot easier said than done in cities and locales and very tall buildings were crowded around streets were a lot of people are just below.
>> it introduces an entirely new sphere to never wrap their heads around something unfolding on soil. it's a difficult line for him to walk. he doesn't want to exacerbate their fear. he doesn't want to instill further fear, but at the same time he needs to emphasize the different protocols that can be put in place and precautions people should take to make sure they are vigilant and always keeping a night out for things like this. that is something he's done while both as a candidate and as president with situations like this has unfolded. train to thank you very much. gabby morrongiello. so much we still don't know about stephen paddock, the 64-year-old allegedly behind these attacks that we don't know his motive, why he patiently waited days to plan this attack. keep in mind this country concert event was in his third
and final day. he arrived before the whole thing started. this was meticulously ironed out and scrutinize. hillary vaughn and what they are learning right now in las vegas. reporter: nail, the question is why did this happen? why did the shooter, stephen paddock, do this? they still don't have a notice that they have asked for more blood and this community has responded. there is a six hour line at the blood bank and there were 515 people that have been wounded from this attack that are being treated in five different hospitals throughout the area. at least 58 people now have been killed in this attack. additionally i talk to several people who were at the concert where the night has not ended for them. they are still dressed in their cowboy boots, cowboy hats from explaining what happened. they haven't been able to get back into their hotel rooms. bright by the airport some are
carrying suitcases with them to get out of the area. one woman wearing an american flag t-shirt with blood on it. she said she gave her tank top to a man who had a gunshot on esmond. she was broken up and started crying thinking of how many people really stayed behind to help others that fell down. i talk to a couple of the concert and i said when did you know you are in danger needed to run? once i started and bodies on front of them they knew they needed to run. a few moments ago i spoke to a woman at the concert with her son. he was eight years old. they're both there. they haven't been able to get back to their hotel room. they haven't been able to sleep. her son was terrified when she tried to be strong for him. it was hard raking to. tell me this is the first time i've ever been running away from someone trained to shoot at me. that is what he said to me. there were kids at this concert as well. we don't have any idea yet what the motive is behind this.
authorities are getting to the bottom of this and they do say they are asking for blood and now we know this community has come together to respond. the last thing i will add is the shooter's own family was shocked to find out he was behind this attack. they said he was just a normal guy. he hung out, like to eat doritos. he would come to vegas and gamble. no known extreme beliefs. they also don't know why. the police don't know why and really for the victims they are waiting to find out why this happened to them. neil: thank you very much. hillary vaughn. hospital officials are updating us on the injured that were taken there to the university medical center. >> eight patients had surgery overnight and were in our ors as soon as they arrived here. for patients unfortunately did pass away. the good news however is many patients have already then treated and released and this afternoon those 12 in our icu
units from our critical care intensive staff and i'm open to any questions you may have to >> with her children brought into your hospital? >> we do. this patient last night were 16 or 17 years old. >> those are the youngest? >> what are the conditions of them? >> they are all in fair condition. the level one trauma center here in nevada -- 104 patients at one time is quite overwhelming although our staff handled it very, very well, triaging patients in front of the ambulance come in making sure they were getting the appropriate care whether that be in the emergency department or in the trauma center. >> how many beds you have to work with us? i know many in las vegas area know when something happens, unc is the first to answer the call. how much moving around or you having to make?
>> become a center certainly was an empty when the patient started coming in. we do have the critical that in our department that we will actually mind people up and make sure that they are well taken care of. so we do not turn away critically ill patients. we keep taking them through our doors. >> you have said four people have died? >> four people passed away. >> we are 58 people, possibly 59 people, at one of the largest hospitals, only four have died here. is that to say there are a lot of patients at other hospitals or that so many people didn't even make it to the hospital? >> i would say a couple things. first of all, we never want to lose a patient, so even one is too many. so for patients is devastating to our crews to work so hard to save those lives. on the other hand we have a 97% survival rate in our trauma center, even including patients with less than a 1% chance of
lives. mostly because we are self-contained and everything our trauma team needs is right here within house. we don't have to walk beyond the four walls of our trauma center to get to the blood bank or mri or cat scan. >> when you hear the number, what goes through your mind? >> i think the same thing that goes for all of our minds. it's devastating that happen in our own backyard. it happened just down the road. >> in this case you had people broadband, not into this. you had some people in their pickup truck to bring them over here. what is your sense of that situation? >> we had people bringing in people they didn't know we didn't need medical attention. one lady said i wasn't hurt, but this car was going away from the scene and she arrived here at the trauma center. people were just trying to get out of the scene. so we got people who weren't even hurt at all. >> what is your message now? >> or messages we're trying to take care of friends and family
members of our patients. patients are getting great care. we want to make sure the families and friends of patients are also taking care of. [inaudible] >> so it means we are totally self-contained and we can take care of any life threatening injury. anything you can think of can be taken care of bedside. we are trauma surgeons, fellowship training, residents as well taking care of our -- 24/7 -- neil: can we go back there guys? it is not good. you are just getting to read from the university medical center. it is good? >> whoever we needed last night, including our ceo, all coming in. >> one of our viewers said they think my loved one are my friend is getting treatment right now. i want to go check in on them. how cannot -- is that possible
at this point? >> give us a call first. please don't come down here. metro still stuck in traffic so we'll be more congested. we are still open for business receiving other patient today. we want to make sure the area is open for medical help. certainly give us a call at the may number and we will answer any questions. >> you may. >> in a schedule of visitation with a patient? >> we do have visiting hours. it just depends. >> are the visiting hours affected by the amount of people in there right now? >> now, we have patient centered care. it's extremely important to have them by the side of the patient. >> how many have actually been treated and released? >> i don't have an exact count, but 20 or so leaving yesterday or last evening. so the good news is so many were treated and released. >> are you speaking with other doctors right now? >> we have a great complement of trauma surgeons who are all
here. they don't even need to wait for the call. they just come in. they are ready for the normal. >> are you guys getting people from the va? >> they pick up the phone and call unc and say they need a higher level of care and because we provide the highest level they are brought in. [inaudible] they have to be fellowship trained in trauma. >> is that something important right now? >> absolutely they have the blood drive going on. we want to be ready. they have the regular trauma is coming in. >> the world is watching in horror. here are these people coming to your hospital barrier almost
this is what we have to do. [inaudible] >> i would necessarily say that. our trauma surgeons are very good at compartmentalizing and they have to do that in order to operate on a moment notice. absolutely, we all get emotionally involved and we want the very best for patients. we keep that aside while we are operating. [inaudible] >> they are very well used to this. this is that they are trained for. they want to be there. they are happy and proud that they were trained and can be here during these kinds of things. >> you said something about patients being lined up on gurneys. are we talking about not necessarily one patient per room, but any space available. >> or trauma reset area is one big room with several gurneys in a row. they can triage patients
anywhere within that area. >> can be found away to get more patients into that room are into the center as a whole because of the need, because of the demand? >> he's actually moved out of the trauma resuscitation area. the triage these to the operating room or to discharge them. [inaudible] >> is the only level one trauma center we offer the highest level care. we open up to transfers her mother hot idols. those hospitals say we need a higher level of care, so we work closely to coordinate with the other hospitals to make sure the patients who need the level one trauma center can come into our doors. [inaudible]
>> absolutely. we have so many so we want to make sure we have our ducks in a row for mass casualty. ironically, the last training we did was from the atlanta regional medical center position on the night of the post-nightclub shooting. he was actually here a few months ago talking to her staff about what they did right and what they could've done differently and we learned a lot from that is that we were able to use some of even the littlest bit of information are very help: these kinds of crisis. thank you very much. neil: we discovered something interesting there. this is from the university medical center, trading 104 patients, 12 in critical condition, four have already died, but what struck me representing about a fifth of those injured. all of those injured are in the hospital in area hospitals as we
speak of many of them might have been treated and released elsewhere. but what is really unnerving if you can imagine being the parent of a loved one, spouse, someone who was in harms way and you do not know their status or even know where and who to call, you are going literally hospital by hospital and hoping they will tell you that and even if you say you are a loved one commander is no guarantee they will share that information with you out of abundance of caution and not to blab information that might not be necessary for anyone else but he was a loved one. but again, how do you know? they advise against coming in the person to find out for yourself. that just adds to the sense of just overwhelming confusion after such an overwhelming event. the worst shooting in american history. will have more after this.
neil: in the middle of this crazy news day, stocks are at an all-time high. maybe this attack that is terror related or at another place or knows or sadly maybe we could use to this sort of thing. one way or another people are buying more than telling. nicole petallides on the stock exchange. >> it really is. no doubt anyone is shrugging off everything that happened in vegas. it was terrific, obviously the worst shooting in our country, but the trend of the market has continued. we've seen it through the last eight quarters and now look at this, we start a new month, new money comes in and markets moved to record all-time highs. the dow, s&p, not back moving here to record all-time highs. right now you can see also that not only are we seeing a pairs across the board, we are also breaking into new milestones. for example the dow above 22,500 for the first time in the nasdaq 5500 the first time.
you can see the markets right now across the board and in the last 10 minutes as we continue to follow the breaking news there in vegas, we just broke out not 10 minutes to a new high of the day. the dow up 128 points right now as we beat. we will watch to see if we can actually solidify these and hold record closing spirit energy, financial technologies have all been higher today with the exception of energy that has been under some pressure. it's been a great deal for the markets. new money coming here with a keen eye on vegas. i will say that we have seen a disconnect where the gun docs are doing better earlier in the day. hotel stocks them under pressure. those are obviously very short-term moves. back to you. neil: thank you very much. enough about this to make you wonder how safe would you be? what would you do if someone was shooting at you from an elevated position, former navy seal.
sir, very good to have you. >> right to be with you. neil: very quickly today when hillary clinton in. thoughts and prayers are not enough. i do want to get because there's so much we don't know about how you would protect yourself, whether you are pro-or anti-gun control from someone who has a lot of that in the shooting down on you from above. >> well, my thoughts and prayers are certainly with the family first responders and friends. but when you're in a situation like that, the first thing you do is get out on the field of fire. you get off the acts. in terms of looking forward to some of these big events, there may have to be sent anti-sniper actions taken by police departments dealing with big festivals like this. that's the number one thing you do is get off the acts. neil: let me ask you as a former navy seal, when i hear a lot of people get on the ground, get on the ground, is that advisable?
i apologize. the first thing you might do is hit the ground. but then you immediately get out of the fatal funnel of fire. they are streaming bullets in this area that basically contain. you need to get out of there. the first thing you do. neil: even if you don't or the bullets are coming from, you know they are raining down on you. try to get out of the immediate area. >> absolutely. that's the first thing you should do. if there is cover, you take cover for sure. but if there's open area, you get out of the acts. neil: a lot of people look at this and say wait a minute, this will get crackpot ideas than it does not to be me saying it. anyone watching this coverage is going to say we've been ramming vehicles into people and doing god knows what else across the globe. this was coming in now, much more massive and scale doing
what this guy did from a purge. how do you prepare for something like that? >> you can't have absolute security. that is impossible. obviously a horribly tragic something that happened. but i think that moving forward you probably will see police departments and law enforcement officials look at anti-sniper attack x, where they are applicable when you have a situation with the bit larger group of people in high buildings around it. you will see some anti-sniper teams that may be used there be used to bear. as we talked about come you can't have 100% security. also obviously a lot of details we don't know yet. we don't know how he access to them. i want to hear that. i want to know what all the details are. neil: a lot of people already talking today about magnetometers in hotels to sort of wander luggage in anything else, but a few things have got to change. how far does this go?
>> we have to be realistic in terms of using finite resources. there's probably some simple things to reduce potential violence or at least reduce the casualties in a situation like this. but you would not have absolute security. they are running into folks. you can do things dare, putting concrete barriers and stuff, but shall not be a lot of stop all of this. you're just not. i don't want to be unrealistic in be unrealistic in saying he will wave a magic wand and spend a billion dollars and be able to reduce violence to never happen again. >> congressman scott taylor, thank you. appreciate it. neil: in the meantime, president trump to visit puerto rico. authority made it clear. look at what he has to say about the damage there. >> it's amazing what has been done in a very short period of time in puerto rico.
there's never been a piece of land that we've known that was so devastated. the bridges are down, the telecommunications was nonexistent and it's been very, very bad shape. we've gotten tremendous amounts of food and water and lots of other things, supplies generally speaking. neil: the former puerto rico governor, luis crichton novel, thank you for taking the time. there has been a bit of controversy around this upcoming visit. as you know, the mayor of san juan has been very critical. the present governor is there not so much and now something that could be a bit of a controversial what should the president do or not do? >> first of all, my hearts go out to the people in las vegas.
horrible to watch those things on tv. i believe the press needs to continue to continue what i've seen recently occurring. he waved the requirements going down in the sand down a three-star general to take control of the situation. that determined that he needed more military assets on the ground. those assets are coming in. there has been a clock of the poorer. he's starting to be able to move all those containers out because there was money of food and water and fuel. it was just not being distributed properly. so i would say people care about results, not about politics. leave that to the current politicians. the governor however has been, i would say, they both have praised the response and has
pledged to do hand-in-hand. that is what we need. all officials working together. >> i just wonder whether they're on the same page. the president has been shown to the deal for helping puerto ricans as he did in texas and florida. you agree with that. >> he basically had said not one. if she does, but have to be addressed with the best way to do it is speaking directly with the fema team. i know the fema team down there.
i know they are in excellent people and the outpouring of support from all over the country is unbelievable. just this weekend i went down and back. 25,000 pounds, so in that sense, corporate america are pouring in love. the federal government and state government not to work together. neil: do you think did a situation, you and i have chatted about this a lot, is complicating matters? >> at this moment, my understanding i am not privy to those conversations, but my understanding from my run his talked about that topic that tens are down, they are waiting, giving each other a couple months to allow for the recovery process to take hold. as such point in time, there will have to be a reconstruction phase. and when that happens, perhaps there will be an occasion for a
chance as part of the solution. that will be acting greatness. that's fine as well. neil: i also might say we've got to have been the bureaucrats who might not picture it gets to them. >> our experience, i was governor when they were when they went out to buy the states and territories. the i.d. reported vaccine that puerto rico was one of the top five u.s. service actions in the handling of our funds, not just complied with all the requirements, but at the same time inappropriately. so again, it's a matter of doing things correctly. one of the things that we did then i suggest all officials,
government officials ought to do this in situations like this, invite the fbi to be part of the team. that's what i did. not one instance where there was any questions about the use of funds. neil: governor, we watch this closely. former puerto rico governor, thank you very much. we're minutes away from the white house briefing. a moment of silence at the white house in recognition of the victims in las vegas.

neil: all right. we're seconding away from a white house briefing. trish regan takes you through that. the dow races through records. perhaps it will be different, perhaps not, if it looked like a terrorist incident that much we know, wall street races and so are a lot of hearts and pulses. trish. trish: thank you, neil. we expect to hear a whole lot more about the massacre in las vegas and we'll learn it from the white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders coming to the podium momentarily. at least 58 people are dead. 515 others have been wounded, making it the deadliest mass shooting in our country's history. as of right now the fbi says there is no connection to a international terrorist group. i am trish regan. welcome, everyone to "the intelligence report." a lot of questions how this all happened, who this man was. take a listen to what those concert-goers confronted last
