4:01 pm
was targeted because of his uniform. the harris county district attorney today calling on the country to support law enforcement officials. >> what happened last night is an assault on the very fabric of society. it is not anything that we can tolerate. it is time to come forward and support law enforcement and condemn this atrocious act. will carr is live from the west coast newsroom. what else was learned at the nu news conference, will? >> throughout the course of the day, authorities have called this murder an assassination and an execution. they say that it took place last night in northwest harris county, that encompasses houston, texas. they say their suspect, shannon miles who we should point out, they issued the wrong mug shot for miles when they initially announced the charges. they say that the man that you're looking at right there,
4:02 pm
shannon miles, with no warning, no confrontation, shot deputy goforth multiple times in the head and back and took off in a ford ranger, the truck that ultimately led to myles' arrest. they found that red truck parked outside of his house. they then initially took him in for questioning. throughout the course of the day, they described miles as a person of interest, not releasing his name. they called on the public's help to find the killer. about an hour and a half ago, authorities said miles is indeed the man who gunned down one of their own. they say ballistics test matched a large gun found with miles to the crime scene. throughout the day, the sheriff has not minced words but is feeling on the murder. >> i have been in law enforcement 45 years. i don't recall another incident this cold blooded and cowardly. >> it strikes us in the heart, to simply be a target because you wear a badge and for no other reason, hit you where you live.
4:03 pm
>> the sheriff also says this has made him question humanity. >> will, how are his fellow officers? reacting in the department? reacting in the departmentreact department? reacting in the department? >> they've been on edge, we heard from the president of the local police union. before the shooting they had been warned about acts of violence towards police officers because of the rhetoric going on across the country. the sheriff expanded on that saying officers across the country needed to be on high alert. goforth was 24th law enforcement member to be shot and killed this year. there's no other motive than the fact he was a deputy. the district attorney and sheriff have had strong words for the anti-police movement earlier in the day. >> there are a few bad aprils in every profession. that does not mean that there should be open warfare declared on law enforcement. >> we've heard black lives matter. all lives matter. cops' lives matter, too.
4:04 pm
let's drop the qualifier and say lives matter and take that to the bank. >> darren goforth was a ten-year veteran. he had two children and a wife that he leaves behind, a local nonprofit police charity has already given that family $20,000, julie and also says this they pledge to pay for both of his kids' college education in the future. >> what a tragedy. will carr, thank you very much. the tragedy in texas leading to our question of the day. with homicide rates up in many cities nationwide, we want to know what you think. how can we capture cold blooded killers before they fall through the cracks and harm others? moving to extreme weather now and hurricane erika fizzling out but not before causing major damage in the caribbean. at least 20 people died and
4:05 pm
nearly 50 remain missing on the small island of dominica. in haiti one person was killed in a mud slide and four others killed in a weather-related traffic accident. erika also knocking out power to more than 200,000 people in puerto rico. estimates there topping $16 million in crop damages alone. and right now, the remnants of hurricane erika are heading north/northwest. the threat to florida isn't necessarily nearly as great as initially feared but it is not over yet. meteorologist janis dean is tracking it now with more. >> taking a look at it, this is the atlantic basin. i just want to point out we do have a wave of low pressure coming off of africa and we zoom in to erika. by the way, the pacific is very active with three category 3 or higher storms. we'll show you that in just a second. here's the remnants of erika. at 9:30 this morning, the national hurricane center said we are going to drop the advisories, erika is done. however, hours after that, they
4:06 pm
came up with invest 90-l, the remnants of erika that could develop over the next couple of days. there's a 40% chance we could see erika become a depression or tropical storm again. the bottom line is florida will get pounded with heavy rain. you remember tampa over the last couple of weeks. they had record rainfall. there's one of our future radar models as we go further out in time. it look like we have something there in the gulf of mexico. we'll have to monitor, perhaps a depression. the bottom line here is, julie, incredible amounts of rain over areas that are already saturated. flash flood watches and warnings are already posted. this is a story we'll follow not only sunday but into the early workweek. we were talking about the three category 3 or higher hurricanes right now in the pacific. these are triplets right now, incredible. we are watching those. the big concern is hurricane ignacio. that's a category 4 storm. look at that hurricane. perfectly symmetrical there.
4:07 pm
the tropical storm models right now show the storm moving north of hawaii but we still have to watch it very carefully over the next couple of days as it is going to come close. the big island is under a tropical storm watch and certainly something to monitor over the next couple of days. we are into peak hurricane season and certainly the maps prove it. back to you. >> we'll see you in a little bit. the concerns over erika comes as the country remembers hurricane katrina ten years later. right now, a celebration of new orleans resilience. president bill clinton will be among the many leaders speaking at the event which will also feature musical performances from artists with deep louisiana roots. hurricane katrina, the massive category 3 storm when it made landfall, the mayor at the time, warning folks in new orleans. this is the storm we feared. broken levees left 80% of new orleans under water. katrina killed month are than 1,800 people and caused about $151 billion in damage across
4:08 pm
the gulf coast region. earlier today, local and national leaders attended a wreath-laying ceremony at the hurricane katrina memorial where the bodies of more than 100 unidentified victims are buried. kasey steagall has more from new orleans. >> reporter: julie, a decade after hurricane katrina and it's estimated there are more than 5,000 families still displaced as of today. many left town as you know and never returned but that was not an option for the family you're about to meet. georgia johnson's father gave her the family home in the lower 9th ward and katrina ruined it. but this week, a decade later, georgia gave us a tour of herron brad new home, rebuilt from the ground up. she's about to move in any day now and we shared one emotional visit with her. she told me if there's anything she's learned through this crisis, it's patience. >> it is not said tears of joy,
4:09 pm
because it feels so good to have such a beautiful home. >> reporter: all of this was made possible through volunteers and funding from a faith-based group called project homecoming. and to commemorate this anniversary, other groups hosting a 48-hour home build across the city. volunteers working six hours, rotating shifts through the st. bernard project to build 48 homes in 48 hours. translating into another 48 families who will soon have a new roof over their heads. the one thing georgia johnson tells me she is most looking forward to about getting into her house, sitting on her new porch with a cup of coffee and reuniting with her neighbors. julie? >> kasey steagall, thank you. meteorologist janis dean and i were on the air together as hurricane katrina devastated the gulf coast. that was ten years ago.
4:10 pm
>> yes, i'll never forget it. we were just here watching. >> yes. >> and imagining what the people there were going through. >> at the time you and i were on, it was the strongest in its life span. it was a category 5 with 160 mile-per-hour sustained winds. it took up the gulf of mexico. people ask me what comes to mind when you think of being a forecaster for over ten years, what's the worst storm you've ever covered? katrina. >> it is the perfect storm. >> it was. >> it was the perfect storm. >> because of the sea level and a lot of new orleans is below sea level. we all read about it being a bowl, the storm surge was going to come over and fill up the bowl which was new orleans. we have to stress not only was new orleans affected but parts of alabama and mississippi, parts of those areas were completely devastated with a record storm surge. when it made landfall it was a category 3. it didn't matter. now we see what the damage was. >> i remember the anticipation and buildup was horrifying.
4:11 pm
as we can show you on the air the video of us ten years ago talking about this, you were talking about this is a category 5 and the likelihood if this were to actually hit at a category 5, it weakened a bit. this is the video back in 2005. i cannot believe it's been ten years since this hurricane hit. it was a category 5. it did weaken to a category 3. >> it still had the storm surge of a category 4 or 5. >> that's what was so devastating. >> the storm surge is always the deadliest part of a hurricane. people don't realize that. we did the best at the time for the forecasting. the hurricane watches were out, certainly. three days beforehand we were focused on the florida panhandle and it shifted. the forecast did shift. so we have gotten better ten years later, you know, and hurricane katrina can just remind us of the strength of mortgage natu mother nature and how we have to be prepared. >> we will never forget that night. ten years later we still don't
4:12 pm
forget the lives that were shaken by this horrible storm. janis, thank you very much. >> of course. >> hurricane katrina affected far more than just new orleans. just ahead, inspiring stories of resilience and hope as we check in with other areas recovering along the gulf coast. and now to the fight against isis. after pressure from washington, nato ally turkey is actually carrying out its very first air strikes against the terror group .pentagon confirming turkish fighter jets hit targets in syria. this comes weeks after turkey allowed f-16 fighter jets to begin targeting isis from the key air base there. now, officials at the pentagon say they are pleased to have the new help and issued a statement, in fact, commending turkey, saying that turkey will play a strategic role of degrading and ultimately defeating isis. right now, spectacular implosion. see, this building blown to

4:17 pm
fight these fires which are threatening about 14,000 homes in oregon and washington state. it means that this year for the first time ever, the agency will spend more than half of its annual budget to fight wildfires. the chief of the forest service says, quote, once again we have to shut down many parts of our mission to fulfill our wildfire suppression responsibilities. oregon senator ron wyden is calling on congress to support a bill that would allow the fores funds if firefighting costs exceed a certain threshold. maria cantwell is proposing her own bill that would increase funding for wildfire prevention efforts. firefighters in her state are burning the biggest wildfire in history. three phi fighters have been killed, thousands evacuated. that one fire alone destroyed about 100 homes. >> when i was 12, i had a dream that i was going to live in a place by a creek. and 35 years ago i realized that dream.

we're making a lot of progress but like many other types of crimes, we're not there yet. it's still a problem. as i mentioned, we cleared up one, another one shows up on the market. >> hackers, freezing a police department's computer system and holding it ransom. and it's a growing problem apparently. the virus is called ransomware and it can start out disguised as something as innocent as an official-looking e-mail. once unlocked it takes control of your computer, businesses and local governments are even falling prey. brian, how does ransomware work? >> it's a type of malware, it encrypts all of your files and data, a message pops up on to
4:23 pm
the screen demanding you pay a ransom, typically between $200 and $10,000. all of your data is held hostage until you pay up. most criminals demand payment in bitcoin, a type of anonymous, easy to use online currency. once you pay the ransom your files are usually decrypted. ransomware has been around for years but the latest strain of the virus called cryptowall. the fbi received 1,000 criminal complaints costing individuals and u businesses over $18 million in losses. the most disconcerning part is even police departments nationwide are getting hit and paying up. this year, in a suburban chicago police department, they paid a $500 ransom to a hacker who encrypted files on one of their computers. another department in tewkesbury, massachusetts reportedly pay specialists and two private internet security firms to try and get past the
4:24 pm
ransomware but in the end they, too, had to pay a ransom $00. $500 may not sound like a lot but cyber security experts point out if you get $500 from a few hundred people all over the world, it becomes very profitable and at a very low risk. >> is there anything people can do to protect themselves? you have to know not to open this. if you don't, what do you do? >> it's about prevention. the police department can't even really stop it. the experts say use anti-virus software and a fire wall, enable pop-up blockers. be skeptical of unrecognizable e-mails and attachments and most importantly, back up your files and data. >> we're trying to get the word out that there are best practices to guard against these signer cyber attacks while the sophistication of those behind the attacks is better and better. we don't even know where they come from. >> cyber attackers are difficult to track and arrest. ibm warns this is the beginning of a long battle for all of us
4:25 pm
against a growing and evolving threat. julie? >> brian, thank you very much. republican presidential candidate donald stump on the campaign trail today. some accuse him of flip-flopping on several big issues over the years but will any of that hurt him at the ballot box? plus, three journalives accused of being mouth pieces for the muslim brotherhood sentenced to years in prison in egypt. but journalists around the world say they were just doing their job. >> they sent a very dangerous message in egypt. it sends a message that journalists can be locked up for simply doing their jobs. ♪ ♪ (dorothy) toto, i've a feeling we're not in kansas anymore...

not an animal around. it was one of the first things i noticed. >> look at this. dock of the bay is gone. >> reporter: the businesses were practically unrecognizable. >> this is where the bay on the end, the bed and breakfast. >> there was nothing left of the inn. i mean, it was 6,000 square-foot house gone. nothing left. >> reporter: the baytown inn was a landmark in a building dating to 1897. owner nikki moon was inside as katrina ripped it aparty. she survived, she says, along with a couple of friends and her dog by clinging to the branch of a tree. >> probably right in this area right here. straddling it with my dog under meej my stomach. >> reporter: they held on like that for hours as the water swallowed the city around them. >> oh, i thought i was going to die, yes, i did. i did. i didn't think we'd make it.
4:46 pm
but we did. somebody was watching out for me. yes. we made it. >> you'd have to live it to know, you know, to really understand what these people here went through. >> reporter: one town over from bay st. louis, cops in waveland fond themselves treading water as katrina flooded them out of the police station. >> clinging on to trees, holding on to the building itself, stayed in the water until it eventually started going down probably six, eight hours later. >> reporter: the water, of course, retreated long ago but much of waveland still has not recovered from how we found it a few days after the storm. the town of waveland, which along this stretch of beach no longer exists. hundreds and hundreds of homes are gone. behind me under that blue tarpolian, a family hangs out on a concrete slab where a building
4:47 pm
once stood. >> reporter: ten years later, those slabs are all over the place, driveways that connected to homes now lead into the woods. police operate out of a temporary shoulder and once where shops and restaurants were along entire drags are empty. >> none of the people have come back. >> reporter: chuck pruett is one of the folks who has come back. the storm scattered his home over a quarter mile area. >> the debris pile was probably about 4 feet. it was just huge. >> reporter: but while he had the ability to rebuild, he says a lot of his neighbors couldn't do the same after insurance costs spiked and stricter construction codes made it too expensive or impractical for some. >> you had to be hopeful, you know. it's just taken a lot longer. it's disappointing but in a lot of ways i understand. just money situation with a lot
4:48 pm
of people. that's basically what it is. >> reporter: yet back in bay st. louis, the recovery is moving much faster, traffic once again flows over the bay bridge, bringing visitors past a new harbor with colorful places to shop and eat. >> is that amazing. >> reporter: where a home video recorded a city in ruins, people now seem to be getting back on their feet. >> ten years and you still see things getting built and things getting cleaned up. it just takes longer than what you really imagine to come back. but sure, slow progress and it has come back and we love our community. >> reporter: one of the things they love about it is just down the street. >> i held on to the property afterwards, hoping that one day i'd be able to rebuild, hoping that one day the town would be ready for an inn again. >> reporter: it was in 2013. when the bay town inn re-opened
4:49 pm
and standing out front is the oak tree that saved nikki moon's life. it died after the storm but serves a new purpose today. after an artist carved two angels into the branches. a reminder both of what happened here ten years ago and everything that's happened since. >> you stripped these folks down to nothing and yet they were determined, i guess i should put myself in there, we were determined, to come back. better than we were. >> reporter: shepard smith, fox news. >> better and stronger. the tragedy in texas leading to our question of the day now, with homicide rates up in many cities nationwide, how can we catch cold-blooded killers before they fall through the cracks and harm others? it's our top story today. tweet me @juliebanderas. i'll read some of your answers right after this.
